I really like the idea of stories focusing on lesser known or less developed characters. It allows us to better understand them and let them in the spotlight (heh) for once. In no particular order my favorites are: 1) Megatron I really like the way he and Starscream were portrayed here and gave us a good reason for why Megatron hasn't killed the latter yet. It also helped develop the two and I loved the way the two interacted here. 2) Blaster This showed the current situation of the autobots in the war, it's effect on them and how vital hope is to their cause as seen with how Blaster brings up the spirit of his fellow autobots through his broadcasts and what the cons will do to get rid of him. 3) Hoist This isn't the most deep, emotional, philosophical, epic or important spotlight of all time but I really like this for some reason. I just really like the story with how unique it was and Hoist's dynamic with Swerve and Sunstreaker and vice versa were really well done. 4) Shockwave It helped us understand the character really well and gave an explanation for Ore 13 showing up on Earth, setting the stage for Dark Cybertron and explaining how Shockwave and the Dinobots ended up on earth. All in one book!
