    Nice find. It all sounds so good :) 

    I see Pipes on the MTMTE the cover and the RID cover is bad-freakin-ass.

    Okay so Delphi is a place they're not supposed to go which means this will end badly. Not sure what the characters would be although I hope it's Kup.

    Can't really comment on the other that much since I haven't read the first issue yet.

    Nix my last comment. I thought he died in chaos part 3. But seriously I really like drift. The only reason I didn't get his toy was because I didnt know who he was then. BIGGEST. MISTAKE. EVER!

    Going to Delphi already? Didn't expect to see that cliffhanger play out so soon. Guess I'm used to decompressed storytelling.

    I've seen Drifts at K-Mart within the last few weeks. You might want to check one by you!

    They both sound like interesting stories, and it is fun to wonder who will be rediscovered in the MTMTE issue. Umm...Grimlock? Kup (even though he supposedly became trapped in the beginning of the Dead Universe)? Sixshot? Bludgeon? (<- And whether or not Bludgeon appears in a near-future issue, it still needs to be explained how he's ended up as a weakened Pretender who leads over the Monstructor Six and is still creepy but no longer a rogue from the Decepticons. But if there's someone who come up with an interesting story behind that, it's James Roberts.)

    But what exactly are those Autobots riding on the MTMTE cover? Some new version of sky-sleds or something?

    Also hoping they find Kup in MTMTE. Given he got dumped backwards in time, it's completely plausible.

    Plus, then we probably get a robozombie story.

    They do say Delphi was once home to the Wreckers. Perhaps Impactor or Kup.

    oh look! Pipes!

    I still think it'll be The Fallen or another corrupt all powerful guy...or maybe the Quintessons?

    Then you snoozed homie that story was all aces, and that art was supposed to be only that one issue. I hope it's the return of Kup or Impactor but mainly Kup.
    Also I like the "Make my day," with acid pelts pose for Prowl.

    I'm surprised too. I'm glad the storytelling isn't decompressed, but now I'm afraid all the cool stuff will happen too fast. :(  I want the awesome to go on forever.

    That has to be grimlock. They mention him going insane in LSOFTW. He's out there somewhere. When he's found, shits going to go down.
