    I posted this info at the Allspark, where I first saw this comic:

    I'll do a full translation of this manga come July after the toys are released but for the time being, the title of the manga is:
    "Perhaps the Time Has Come for Me to Fight as a Soldier, Too."

    Hot Rodimus is released on Thursday next week, and I'm hoping the manga picks up a little bit like the Astrotrain issue (#2). The first one was "rearry" boring.

    Just a short summary, it looks as if Ramjet found Skyfire, who used to work with Starscream a long time ago before Starscream was a soldier. Skyfire teams up with the Decepticons until he realizes that there's no point to the fighting, at which time he turns on the Decepticons, stating that he doesn't like the fighting and is just a scientist. It's assumed that he joins the Autobots after he says that he didn't get along well with Starscream.

    Does the comic explain Skyfire, the peaceful scientist's, weaponry? =P


    "First, 'Peace' as you call it, is an illusion. If you have 'Peace,' you simply haven't yet seen the thing that's trying to kill you. Second, Peaceful missions through the cosmos rarely require weapons large enough to punch holes through a small moon." -The Spathi High Council

    Well it seems that Starscream gives Skyfire his helmet. It's entirely possible that the rest of his weaponry is a gift, too.
    I mean, as Skyfire seems to have crashed and frozen before the war, it seems more logical that the weapons are a new addition rather than pieces of old.
