    I can't get ahold of this issue fast enough.

    That's not today. Therefore, I'm nerd raging.

    This is all Josh's fault! :)

    I did find it odd that we hadn't seen a preview or anything yet.

    It's official....

    IDW is now the "Icecream Man", driving an extra half block knowing the kids are running right behind him.

    Whatever....MTMTE in another half of a block it is then.

    Can't wait. Anyone else think that Ratchet and Pipes will be the two who won't make it?

    Pipes maybe. I'd be sad, but he's not a dude I'm uber gay for. That position is filled by Ratchet, and if he dies, I will break something.

    Well, Ratchet's seen rusting away on the cover, so....

    Either way, I doubt Drift'll bite it, and I doubt FM or First Aid will either.

    And Drift was seen about to kill a perfectly healthy Pipes, so...

    And way back on the, I believe issue #1 or #2, Milne cover Rodimus is shown grimacing angrily at some unseen opponent on a pile of dead bodies, so...

    Moral of the story: Covers are bullshit.

    True.

    Though it does seem like the covers hint at things that happen during the issue; most of those bodies were seen being carried by Magnus while Rodimus was with him, and Drift did attack pipes...

    Still, they did say that Ratchet knew his time was up, so maybe, maybe not.

    I doubt Ratchet bites it personally. He has to live long enough to train First Aid to be the new Chief Medical Officer right?

    Ambulon was the secret holder.

    Ambulon and Pharma were created to fill out the Autobot Medics.

    At Pharma seems to have a bitchin' design, to counterpoint Ambulon's mundane design.

    Ambulon appears to be a former Decepticon in the least, therefore would it truly be a shock to see Ambulon kill Pharma?

    Then Fort Max rips off Ambulon's head then First Aid joins the Lost Light as Ratchet's apprentice.

    yea its pretty much a given that whatever they show on a comic cover is not what actually happens inside the comic, so many covers i've seen in my life made it look like Spiderman is almost dead at the hands of so-and-so, or whatever, --- they just make the covers as dramatic as possible to sell the comic.

    I think its a little early to kill Ratchet, but his disposition in this comic leaves a lot of foreshadowing for him playing martyr at some point.

    Protectors #5 would disagree with you, as well as a few others once I'm rested enough to remember them.

    When did Rachet get Prowl's headcrest btw?
