    As usual, Hot Rod fucks up at the end.

    Indeed, I thought the trailer base took him out at first, then I see Roller with a big cannon.

    Very good issue with some nice plot twists.

    Well, I'm pretty sure we all expected THAT.

    The thing I'm surprised about is they didn't even bother getting Earth alt modes before beaming down to the planet. Nice disguises, 'bots!

    A very nice issue overall, though.

    2nded!

    Is it me? Or is the IDW Prime a lot sneakier?

    Still dissappointed at the lack of Earthmodes for HardHead and Hotrod.

    Still If they get them NEXT issue, Hotrod should be a "Smokey and the Bandit" Trans Am,

    But should HardHead be an "Earth" tank (which is the literal interpertation of his alt mode) or a civilian vehicle? (Since all the IDW-Earth Autobots seem to be cars reguardless of how much firepower they carry.)

    Also did anyone else catch the slip on the Russian (Chechnian?) General IDing the Autobots?

    "American" F-22(correct)
    Rally car (kinda Genaric, and it's a 30 YEAR OLD rally car at this point)
    An "American" Police car?

    Look I'm as Red White and Blue as the next 'murkin. But what Police Departments in the USA use Nissan 350Z's? Why couldn't he have said it's a Japanese police car? It's not like it's gonna make any MORE logic than a Dogfighting space shuttle! (The R/L Space Shuttle doesn't fly BTW, it really just kinda falls out of the sky on a general trajectory)

    So points off for the slip up.

    Wow.

    My comics shop actually got in the movie preview issues but they were all sold out.
    They had exactly ONE issue of Escalation left and I got it.

    Interest in Transformers is definitely getting larger.

    Great issue, really great.
    I may be wrong, but is this the first time ever that Roller kicked ass?

    No one else notice at the bottom of page 11 there was a Binatlech reference on some airfilters and what looks like Seibertron on a leaflets above?

    Pretty good issue.
    Grabbed that and the movie prequel B&W issue.

    I think Roller has a cult following, but he's never been used effectively before. Its too bad really, lots of potential there with just a little imagination.

    Grabbed this and the Stormbringer TPB. Gotta say, I REALLY want SB Megatron and Astrotrain made into mainline toys!

    Anyway, as for issue 4... loved it. Furman got the mix between both missions almost perfect. And more and more we keep seeing the little things set up in SB and the Spotlights coming into play.

    Picked up a copy of # 4 yesterday after work.
    I love it!!!!!!
    The story was flowing nicely, I liked the action and the crosses between Ironhide scenes and the fights in Russia. I loved how roller busted Blitzwing. That was awesome.
    I can't wait for the next issue!
