    My body is ready.

    Is that Metroplex on the MTMTE cover?

    Hmm, here's hoping they pick up Dai Atlas and crew.

    Also, Grimlock and the Dinobots!

    Funny how it takes Grimlock 21 years to finally find out how to get his transformation ability back... They could have just built him a new body and been done with it.

    Actually Simon Furman wrote a conclusion to this storyline for a UK annual. However, it was ignored when Marvel's G2 comic came out.

    Also, damn I hope that isn't Metroplex! The turrets on his head are wrong.

    Considering the artists tend to redesign characters every few issues, no reason it isn't Metroplex.

    True, the thought did occur to me, I'm just hoping it isn't because in Metroplex's case, he has more or less stuck to his classic design.

    Damn, that's a lot of good looking comics! I'm having a hard enough time just waiting for the next issue of MTME, never mind all those!

    Isn't it great to be genuinely excited by TF comics again? Might have taken them a while, but I think IDW have finally come good.

    Man, it's hard trade-waiting sometimes. Looking forward to getting all of these when the collections eventually come out.

    So, I wonder if this means that they intend to release additional volumes reprinting all the various GI Joe/TF crossovers at some point? Certainly hope so, as a couple of the Devil's Due TPBs are out of print and/or never collected.

    This was pretty much as far as they got teasing at BotCon, which is cool cause it means there's loads more great stuff to come. (Well ok, "Decepticon month" follows Dinobot month, cause it's not like Decepticons are ever in these comics?)

    Although I do think it's weird that Grimlock has a blue visor on the RG1 cover.

    Wait, an annual? That's interesting although I wonder why there's only one.
