    Just picked it up about an hour ago. Pretty good, I thought... can't believe there's only one more issue to go, though. Seems a little too fast paced.

    I picked up the Magmatron/Spark cover and the Megatron vs. Magmatron cover.

    Just picked up the issue with Guidi's Megs vs. Magmatron cover.

    Overall, in a nutshell, this issue I felt was an improvement over the last with the increase in stakes and the introduction (albeit very short, but impressive) of Mr. Furman's favorite characte and Ravage.:D  Oh, I guess the appearance of the Mutants was to do some Spring cleaning .;) 

    And as an aside, how long is a nano-click? Is that a second or minute? Just wondering since the temporal displacement story device is being used.

    I'm pretty sure a nanoclick is a second.

    Anyways, AWESOME issue-- best of the series so far, and that's saying something. Loved the return of Ravage (hope he gets substantially more lines next issue, though), as well as the Mutants cameo. Given the way Chris Ryall was talking in the letters column, though, I'll be VERY surprised if this miniseries isn't continued in one way or another...

    I love that DON draws Ravage the same way I've always transformed him. Distinguishes him much more from the Cheetor deco of the mold. I forgot, until I had the issue in hand, that the transform instructions on the toy's package differed.

    And I got the Megs/Mags cover. Fun fight and banter.

    Furman just can't keep Grimmy out of anything. I'm sure that he will be involved in Stormbringer.

    Indeed, though I'm not sure where I got this interpertation from, but I believe Grimlock is more along the lines of a Deinonychus (a much larger Velociraptor, which Dinobot is based on). Hence, his large size. Plus, it's Grimmie, so what else do you expect?:D 

    BeastBotX- thanks for the clarification on the time lingo.:)

    Was a really fun issue. I like that Ravage's team includes Beast Wars Buzzsaw and Lazorbeak.

    Yup. Nice to see the non-show Pred. flyers in action. Lazorbeak and Buzzsaw are nice repaints of some nice toys. I almost like them better than Terrorsaur and Waspinator. Almost. Nice to see them in action... hopefully they get some characterization.

    Anyone catch that Ravage, a former Soundwave tape, has two buddies named after Soundwave tapes? Or is that just an obvious given and I'm not catching on to anything super spectacular?
