    I flipped through it in the shop but the artwork was a major turn-off so I passed. :(

    I see what you mean but I had to support Andrew Wildman for old time's sake.

    I really liked the story, but the art was a major hindrance. Especially after the last run. Wha happennn?

    And yes, Eject just came out of nowhere to capture my tape-lovin' heart. I liked Cosmos having some spotlight as well.

    Good stuff. I dinna have a problem with Wildman's art, so no problems there. The Unicron-CobraLa connection is palpable enough. Nice cameos by the otherwise lame GIJoe Lunartix aliens and TF Pretender monsters that actually just kinda..fit..here. Toss in Eject's breakout performance and ju have teh funs. Once again, like their respective cartoons..but without the lame.

    It was friggin' -awesome-. This crossover continuity takes things to a crazy degree that's just perfect.

    I really liked it and enjoyed Prime and Eject.

    I'm looking forward to the next issue as I only have vague memories of Cobrala from the late 80's.

    I am a big Wildman fan, but I have to admit that his art on the long distance shots is lacking in detail. Maybe he thought the inkers would tighten it up.

    I like the artwork overall and I really like these crossovers.

    I echo the statement that they are like their respective cartoons minus the lame.

    I thought the last mini-series was a nice bit of inconsequential, fluffy fun, but I didn't care much for this at all. The whole thing seems very rushed, especially the artwork. I'm not usually a big stickler in the art department, but yeesh, some of those background characters are shockingly undetailed. To make matters worse, the story's not so hot, either. The concept is neat, but there's just something lacking in the execution that makes everything seem unspectacular. The flat dialogue doesn't help, though there are a couple of funny one-liners. If this weren't just two issues, I wouldn't be picking up any more of this series.

    just got the sumbitch, bought both the prime and unicron cover. i love this shit.

    that said, the pacing, while snappy, is terrible, it jumps all over the pace, but great script in a fun way. highlights:

    - anything eject said
    - protofooooorm, protofoooooorrmmmm.... fucking lol even typing this i'm giggling
    - flints yodel comment
    - fucking chuck norris coming to the rescue

    i get chuck norris being a reference to the old gi joe doll, was metal arm guy a reference to takaras cyborg version of the gi joe doll?

    Colton is the originator of the Kung-Fu Grip. And he's in a comic with Eject and Cosmos.

    This book was a lot of fun. I like how they connected Unicron with Cobra-La, and I'm kinda curious about the G.I. Joe movie now.

    I'm also glad we finally got a story featuring an Autobot Tape and the @#$%ing Monster Prentenders! Hell yeah!

    This Cobra-La is 8 billion times cooler than the movie one for actually having a backstory.

    the only thing i didnt understatnd id why would unicron evenn bother dealing with them?

    lets see......... a planet size transformer/ God vs a bunch of snakes with a few hundred acres of " metel eating spore"!!
    frst of all uni would have just taken it then repaired himself instantly, then start chomping!!!!!!!!

    only other grip is i want to hear when blugeon and others got to earth and met cobra-la

    AFAIK, the guy with the metal arm is meant to be Mike Power, Atomic Man from the 70s-era Adventure Team strand of G.I. Joe, who was created presumably to cash in on the popularity of the Six Million Dollar Man (which had an action figure from Hasbro's then-competitors Kenner).
