Wow...a lot of comments on issue 12, and I appreciate the mixed opinions. Some here know my general consensus on MTMTE/LL, I'm not a huge fan. But...I try to support IDW, even tough they disappoint me more often than not. I'd rather have something than nothing at all. Now that being said, I usually don't give my 2 cents each time a new issue of LL comes out because admittedly I'm not a fan, and I don't want to mire fan discussion with just negativity..that's not cool.

But...since we got the early advertisements for this, I was especially looking forward to this issue. Combiners are my favorite aspect of the Transformers lore, and the thought that Getaway might be getting his comeuppance via the Protectabots/Defensor sounded neat...

Then a few pages in...That line from Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi hit me like a ton of bricks. -"This is not going to go the way you think"...

Oh boy...There really isn't anything that can be summarized that hasn't already been said, but [spoiler]seeing an awesome combiner being taken down like a chump yet again doesn't sit well with me, neither does crazy zealot Star Saber. I thought we had seen the last of him,[/spoiler] I had to watch at least 3 episodes of Victory to get me back to where I need to be in my mind with that character.

So yeah, I'm back to square one, not really liking this series. But I know its by far the most popular TF book currently, so I hope fans are enjoying it. I have Optimus Prime to keep me going until we see what havoc Unicron wreaks in mid 2018.

Covers A & C (the one used in the review) are awesome...I'll say that much [spoiler]Too bad Cover C is one of those *things that never happens* covers...[/spoiler]

Well here are the sales numbers courtesy of ComiChron for November 2017:

#268 in units, #255 in sales Optimus Prime #12 sold 5,811 units
#270 in units #256 in sales Transformers Lost Light #11 sold 5,786 units
#271 in units #274 in sales Transformers First Strike #1 sold 5,730 units
#274 in units #262 in sales Optimus Prime #13 sold 5,638 units

So Lost Light is not the most popular Transformers comic, if the downward trend of Optimus Prime is matched by Lost Light. Interesting that Transformers First Strike sold so well!

That is interesting and all, like I said, I've always preferred RID/TF/Prime and TAAO as opposed to MTMTE/LL. But fans constantly rave about MTMTE/LL, and it is always winning awards...so I naturally just thought it was the most popular because its seemingly all what anybody talks about.

Interestingly, in October, First Strike #5 and #6 outsold Optimus Prime and Lost Light. So from that, it seems like people like the shared universe, and they aren't all Transformers fans!

It's false advertising which is disgusting, it's not like that cover with Swerve and Anode that was posted today which we can obviously tell is non canon but that cover you mentioned? That's actual lying to make people buy the comics and they don't care if people get disappointed they were lied to since it's too late IDW got their money.

to put it in perspective both the OP issues in that chart and LL combined are now selling LESS than when furman was kicked off the book for "low sales"

sommats gonna happen man as this cant go on.

Optimus Prime 13 is one copy away from selling the same as "zombie tramp" FFS.

You know this kinda stuff could be avoided if there was only one or two comics instead of having dozens upon dozens at a time it makes it really confusing for people to understand and/or catch up.

Ive said since the first windblade mini that our fanbase just isnt big enough to support 3 books.

i can see IDW doing a "gi joe " on us.

i.e they'll bring furman back to try and get legacy readers to return (basically the larry hama deal) and put out a single ongoing for the
normal "IDWverse" probably done by barber.

with the odd mini series by roberts.

or something very like that.

its a pity but were not the xmen or the avengers and sooner or later the maths gets ya.

So TF books overall are on the decline then? That makes sense. I posted not too long ago that the local shop I go to (the owner now has 3 shops in the greater Sacramento area, and I've known him for 20+ years...)..isn't even stocking most IDW titles, they are special ordered for myself and a handful of others. Kind of a shame, but I get it.

I loved most of IDW's Godzilla run from 2012-216, but low sales ultimately killed it as well, but I do have to admit IDW stuck with it longer than any other publisher, I'm sure the last issues were selling less than 2000 each, and they still all got TPB after the fact... maybe Unicron really will be THE END :shock:

i will give IDW that.

theyve taken more chances with this franchise than Marvel EVER wouldve.

and theres no way in hell they'd be launching new books through it (like visionares etc)

they'dve cancelled ALL the books at this level. hell we woudlntve got a second book at all.

The level of negativity based on some really partial and clearly not entirely attuned readings of the IDW situation, comics in general, and just dislike of certain narrative choices is really dampening my mood.

I'll come back in a couple of days to defend the comic again.

Is it maybe possible that all the Protectobots are on the ship and First Aid will save them all along with Thunderclash?

Or, and stay with me here on this one, you could ... I dunno, accept that some people don't love these comics as much as you do.

This is just me but I have never seen Transformer comics books where I live besides a couple volumes at chapters/indigo here in Canada.

Transformer's comics are not small by any means but their not a huge thing either.

I've read IDW stuff since the All hail Megatron stuff and I've gone back and tried to read most of the older stuff, I loved IDW but it's just not getting my attention anymore, for example MTMTE/Lost Light has too many unanswered mysteries and most of the ones that get answered have awful conclusions, it also has a lot of wasted potential in characters, we don't see other members of the ship that often and any new characters that get made tend to be bland Oc's that could have been filled by an established character and not necessarily a g1 guy either like I would love to see an IDW Nu-Rid character or IDW movie Blackout.


I'm just waiting for Nitro Zeus personally since he's my fave Decepticon in the franchise but that's just me. (Although he'll probably get a couple panels and then die and be forgotten)

I'm kinda with Va'all. There is not liking the direction (me, dmax) then there is just being hateful and mean (many others). I want to share more thoughts and discuss, but the digital atmosphere here feels a bit toxic.



One thing I just can't get over, is when did Starsaber become phase sixer on Super roids powerful?

Especially with them already finding Cyber-Utopia. It could be a false news memory loop?
