...and now frankly, as much as I enjoy this series, I have had enough of the romance angle.

I feel like we have moved from rock opera to soap opera.

Maybe it's just me.

Or in the spirit of what I'm saying, "It isn't you, it's me."

It's not just you.

It's especially grating if you don't buy into the romance angle that season 2 seems to be actively courting.

Then again, I REALLY don't like Tailgate's capering for attention post-Dark Cybertron, so most of the storylines involving him feel forced, if only to appeal to the "OMG so cute" fans. :P

Whenever I get the urge to download MTMTE I just play Devastation instead. Transformers in romantic relationships with other Transformers half their size just reminds me of pedophilia. :SICK:

I will admit the romance part does not feel that good, and the way Getaway is trying to get Tailgate is not very good either. Kinda dark really. I really feel Cyclonus may beat Getaway to the point of death here.

At the same time, some characters have really taken the backburner for season 2. Swerve, Tailgate and Whirl really haven't felt like they have done much, so I am ok with them being brought back in. I like em! :BOT:

Yet Swerve got an entire issue revolving around him, did a bunch of openings, tailgate was everywhere in elegant Chaos as well as having a lot of time centered around him with this "love triangle" through out the past year and half and Whirl too was all over in elegant chaos as well as being one of the most important characters in the series with saving megatrons life. How can you say those three haven't had much time?

Well that's the point right now for whatever reason they are trying to make Getaway look like a creep right now.



Wait I thought you had nothing to do with anything beyond 1985.

But Chromedome has been looking like a pedophiliac for a long time now. Eject's head is large but his body is small like that of a young boy.

This book would be so much better if it were written by one of the season 1 guys or Ron Friedman. We definitely wouldn't be having this conversation now.

Oh, 1984forever, you never change.

Though I do find that Chromedome and Rewind have become a lot more one-note this season, primarily known as "the two that are a couple", ESPECIALLY Chromedome.

I used to greatly prefer MTMTE (over the comparatively dry, average mainline comic) because of it's colorful character led story about a bunch of jerks on a ship. Now I've switched back, mainly because the main comic is actually about Transformers doing Transformery things and doesn't have a drop of teenage romance drama.

I'll still buy MTMTE for the non drama bits, but it's getting a bit annoying.

You mean Rewind right?


Rewind is actually older then Chromedome and what do you expect from someone who turned into a cassette some people are just short it's not pedophilia.




I can also guarantee you the season 1 guys would not make the comics better Season 1 of the Transformers was pretty bland and boring most of the good things from the cartoon came from season 2.

Ron Friedman is not that great either.

Romance is hardly the spotlight in MTMTE their only side stories.

Yeah, I meant Rewind. I have trouble telling him apart from Eject. Now Rumble and Frenzy I can tell from one another because Frenzy is Red and Rumble is blue.

I honestly don't know what's going on with this rag. First it's that Constructicon Scavenger's entire fan club deciding to ride My Little Ponies into battle instead of using their alt modes.... and then next we get a peek inside mini Fort Max's shuttle and discover that he is an avid plush toy collector. Now with this ish we get an Archie comic with a Transformers logo on it. Hasbro needs to pull this license quick!

Wat?


The only one of those I have ever heard of was the Archie cover which is only an alternate cover celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Archie comics its not canon get over it comics do it all the time.



Why would any of that merit Hasbro pulling their licence when they encourage that behavior?



Look I don't think Transformers is your thing anymore the original cartoon ended a long time ago and Hasbro is moving on like everyone else.

How can you say those three haven't had much time?

They have had their bits, but at least to start with, Megatron took all center stage. Up until issue 35 it was really all Megs and little bits of other things (now i get why and i very much enjoyed it, bu still) and then while Whirl and Tailgate were prevalent, they sort of passed back into the back once the time trip was over. And then yes Swerve had an issue to himself (which i loved) and that was pretty much it. i do enjoy the Swerve recaps though.

All in all though, Megs, Chromedome, Brainstorm and Nautica have taken the larger stage. Which like I said i don't mind, but I'd prefer others getting more time too. Ole Highbrow, Blaster and Hound are bridge crew and yet they get really no time, so it'd just be a matter of more character diversity. And I also wish we would find out who Whirl was talking to in issue 28. :BOT:

1984 Forever you are a constant in an ever changing universe. I fear that if you change opinion and join us in the year 2015 that the apocalypse has well and truly arrived.

Now for the preview, I think it's interesting that we get these glimpses into the culture of the cybertonains and what their like in the downtime. While I wish other characters could get a focus, I am interested in what route Roberts is taking here.

Well this looks like rather interesting. Might be another good character-building issue.

I certainly think it's hard when all that's in the preview is this and no hints towards other goodness. I'm a bit over the relationship thing, prefer to see more familial relationships explored like spark brothers, split sparks, shared sparks, etc. it does at times feel a little over the top and In our face. I too have been enjoying the main Transformers series more lately... The art has been better, the themes have been far reaching, and the character development is less focused on finding your conjux.

Still reading, and enjoying parts of it, but grimacing and feeling somewhat uncomfortable when scenes like this pop up.

How does Getaway drink? I know his faceplate probably goes away, but he's drinking and talking, nursing his drink, and his faceplate is closed.... Anyway...

I don't mind romance, but i don't want it to be the forefront. Like let's use this issue to really wrap this up. Have the characters do what they need to do and move on.

Of course, this all could have a deeper purpose. We could be thinking that all this is is a love triangle but instead we find out that something else is going on.
