    That's pretty cool looking. Just curious, but, what other characters have had spotlights done for them? I know of a couple, and that Ramjet is in the works, but I don't know all of the one's that have been done so far. Thanks to whomever answers my question.

    Ok, cool. Stupid question, but, what does TPB #1 and TPB #2 mean? Are they collections of the Spotlights that can be bought all at the same time?(that would be awesome). Sorry if I'm way off or anything, I haven't been into comics for quite sime time, lol.

    Trade Paperbacks, which refer to collections of comics in book form in general. So you were spot-on.

    Ok, cool. I'll have to find a way to purchase them then. Nowhere near me sells absolutely anything to do with comic books.

    Assuming you have no problems in purchasing things on-line, then you can get Vol. 1 from either IDW's site directly or Amazon.

    You'll need to wait awhile for Volume 2, though.

    Well, I usually don't buy stuff on-line, but, I think I can make an exception for these, lol. I'm glad that Volume 2 won't be out for a while (it'll allow me to save up for it). Thanks for the help guys.

    Edit: After finding the 1st volume in IDW's online store, I'm definetly going to get it somehow. $20 is cheaper that I thought it would be, lol.

    Blaster huh? Still waiting for a Grimlock one shot, but I guess this'll do also.

    I notice his head is a cross between the Marvel comics and cartoon head, interesting.

    Yes! One of my faves finally gets a spotlight! :D 

    And Emiliano's art looks fantastic! Then again, it usually is.

    Further in the thread, Ryall states that Grimlock will be in early 08. Not the one after Blaster, but in the pipe.

    So after Ramjet, there's supposed to be 4 others - at least. Blaster & Grimlock. And Wheelie was stated @ BotCon07.

    So who knows? I could stand a Wheelie one - as long as they explain 1)why he was by hisself (but then again, movie didn't happen in comic-verse, so WTH cares??) and 2) why he talks like he does :yuck 

    But since Furman has love for the Wheelie - it'll probably happen. I'd like a SPRINGER spotlight - like how he got command of the Wreckers (unless that was covered somewhere in the TFCC comics)?

    And other than the bit under his nose, I like Blaster's look.
