Ive always liked Metroplex and IDW Sixshot is my favorite Decepticon.

Better than that, it was straight up G1 old-school. Goldbug in Bumblebees G1 Alt mode, the "Soundwave" alt. style roadway lamps. That was just too cool. All the fun of the cartoon but with better graphics and no crappy acting. I loved seeing the Cybertronian alt modes of the other Throttlebots. I like 'em better than the Earth modes. I'm going to have to get this one.

Ever freaking occur to you that someone else may not have seen that particular item pop up before or
were you just actively trolling around for someone to drop your derisive comment on for no good reason?
If you aren't interested in the comic...fine. Say so and move on but there was no call for you to be such an ass
towards me with no provocation and in such a public display. I would have PM'ed you or a mod but since you obviously
aren't hiding your opinion NEITHER AM I!!

I consider both of those things a plus, personally. I enjoy seeing the lesser-known characters get some screen time, and I like little background nods to things as long as they don't take too much spotlight.
Heck, there's even signs that Schmidt might have remembered that Searchlight is Optimus' aide-de-camp in the IDWverse. On top of that, it's good to see Sixshot back in action, and I agree that it blissfully reads more like old-school IDW than the current AHM style. It's also nice to see that the issue being made up of the two-page spreads might prove to be an interesting aesthetic choice without sacrificing too much story.
So... you can be disappointed so far if you like. Me, I think it's nice to find myself thinking an upcoming IDW G1 issue might actually be fun after all the disappointment so far. (Well, the upcoming G1 miniseries that Nick Roche will be writing has also got me excited.)
