    (Quick forum search for relevant words didn't turn up any results - if I'm wrong and this is a duplicate thing, mods delete away!)

    So i went to Comixology to get LL #13 and found the following listing.

    Transformers: Lost Light #17 - Comics by comiXology: Web UK

    "Lost Light #17 available on 25th April 2018"
    Solicit text:
    "LETTING GO! After years of tragedy and misadventure, Rodimus and Co. are finally happy—eager to see out their days on a peaceful world where contentment is inevitable and good things keep happening, whether they want them to or not. Is there a downside? No… Oh, alright then, yes. And it's a big one!"
    Plus a cover showing Rodimus and
    all five of The Guiding Hand
    !

    I remembered how bbcode works and added spoiler tags for the solicit text and description of the cover :)

    Covers can be literal, or merely figurative (or to sell figures :D  ) so may not reflect the contents... but it's good to see things being ramped up. I'd be happy with five hundred issues of the crew drifting around the universe before the story ends, but on the other hand story resolution is satisfying, so it's good to see threads coming together.

    What are these massive spoilers? Seems like a fairly straight-forward solicit that doesn't give much away.

    One forumite's "massive spoiler" is another's "meh, we've had hints it was going this way". I added the spoiler tags just in case :)

    That the 'Rod Squad'
    are going to wind up with the Guiding Hand
    may be felt to be a big spoiler. It's a signifcant development within the grand Roberts arc.

    Transformers vs Visionaries and Rom & the Micronauts reach their respective conclusions.

    On Optimus Prime, The Falling Interlude, another flashback issue that will show how us Onyx Prime’s origin.

    And on Lost Light, Rodimus meets his maker, literally.

    A moot point if the OP wants to warn people that there may be a spoiler on the cover. One poster already feels it's a massive spoiler, whereas you're unconvinced. Probably best to worry about those that might be frustrated to walk into a potential spoiler.

    Is that supposed to be Onyx facing off against Megatronus on the OP cover there?

    I'm pretty sure it is.

    It won't. Milne was just on LL #13 as a fill-in, and is working on the Unicron comic now.

    Those new Visionaries designs are growing on me more and more. Really digging them! Really want to read the story of the evolution from what they were to right before this miniseries. Really hoping this leads to a prequel series comic.

    I really hope to see Onyx Prime\'s backstory. It\'s intriguing how they made him a formidable atagonist, but I hope we get an explanation on his goals.
