    I think I am getting bored of this series. What are they doing?

    AHM is "over", we're on what was supposed to be "Coda".

    4 issues split into 2 stories each with a different creative team on each one.

    Issue 13 was 1/2 Ironhide/Prime's past and 1/2 Starscream moving forward.

    Issue 14 is 1/2 Sunstreaker shenanigans and 1/2 Galvatron shenanigans.

    This is the part where they're putting plasters over the massive holes AHM tore in continuity. Poor Sunstreaker, insult added to injury.

    My thinking too.
    Hey, maybe they'll do a series of Special Edition TPBs where they edit these bits into AHM. Trade paperbacks are normally where IDW fix all their stupid mistakes anyway.

    That said it'll be interesting to see what happened to Sunstreaker between being captured and later not being not captured. Not that it'll have any bearing on the rest of the story now we've already seen the end of his journey.

    A H M was awesome and brought me back to comics. However, that so-called "ending" was weak and that last issue...

    Well, if there's only a couple more, I'll stick it out. But I do hope they pick up.

    Sad that you have to end a series by telling how it started.

    I can see why Sunstreaker hates humans so much.

    I'll finish the series, just for the sake of being a completist (or a sadist, depending on your perspective).

    Personally, I'm looking forward to the new ongoing soooo much more than this dragging out of AHM.

    Going in, the "idea" behind AHM was very interesting and had me (along with quite a few others) very pumped up. However, like so many other things, they failed in the "execution".

    There were some very cool moments here and there throughout the series, but overall it's still not a failure, but more like...meh.

    Wow, your right. Second panel on the first page. The bot on the far left definately looks like Sideburn.

    This is STUPID. Utterly botching continuity.

    The Machination guys are working for SCORPONOK. They damn well know that Sunstreaker is not just a robot, that he's alive. I mean, read Escalation #2 when they laugh at Wheeljack's attempt to scare them. They have seen Transformers, they have worked with them...

    Oh and to you think Scorpy or even Mr. Danton would allow some stupid technician to bring her girlfriend into the top secret room? THis is like a bad James Bond flick. And we had that, in DW War and Peace, already.

    I hope the Galvatron part will be better, but I dread continuity butchering there too.
