    Two double-page spreads back to back is attention grabbing. I wonder if the whole issue will be laid out like this?

    This comes about before the annual? I see it referenced on that page with Skids and Chromedome.

    Flywheels is a triple-changer? Flywheels is a triple-changer! When he transformed last issue, it was into a tank!

    "Because that badge belongs to us. Not them." Crankcase? Welcome to hardcore!

    *sigh* I really, really need decent Tailgate, Pipes, and First Aid toys, so I can recreate Movie Night.

    Oh lord. We're referencing books that haven't come out yet?

    Hopefully not another bunch of Decepticons slaughtered just to make someone else look more menacing...

    Well, as per the preview has somehow got me more hyped for this issue than I already was.
    I get the idea the referencing of the Annual might just be because the order of MTMTE and RID was mixed up a few issues in, used to be MTMTE first then RID after wasn't it?

    I love the dialoge! The writing on this series is awesome! :D 

    "Because "Fighting the D.J.D." is just "Certain Death" with more letters! It's-It's suicide with delusions of survival!"

    Can these guys write the next movie? Please?

    This looks so very promising! I just hope Krok's plan doesn't backfire... which looks quite likely, considering the cover...

    Flywheels was a Duocon originally. I guess it's easier to make him a Triple Changer vs being a downgraded combiner.

    Now I want a new Blitzwing figure that gets remolded into flywheels.

    And a Springer remolded into Battletrap.

    Oh Fansproject!~

    Holy smokes, I realized just what the heck Fulcrum transforms into... or what K-Class is... or who is the one whose crime is, "He lived"...

    They are living bombs. Look at the arms of the Cons in the flashback... they all transform into cylindrical shapes. And they are dropped out of a ship... And the joke about the "first time"... Yeah, Fulcrum was a kamikaze bomb - who didn't went off. And the DJD is probably after him, now.

    Would make a Torque toy fairly unlikely, huh. It blows my mind that the name was used a second time, the first being in 04. Mind = :bay

    That was badass of Crankcase.

    As for Movie Night toys, YES!

    When does the annual come out again?

    Double yes.

    If Hasbro ever gets around to making a Blitzwing, I'd be pretty happy with Flywheels as a remold.

    If FansProject or another unlicensed/third party company tackled them, I imagine an attempt at replicating the Duocon feature would be made, and they could probably do it well since they won't have to worry about squeezing that feature into a deluxe class figure's budget.

    Well...(runs back to check the link again)...shit, I think you have something there.

    SMH at taking credit for someone else's detective work....even if they aren't on this forum.

    I actualy genuily smiled when I read Crankcase's line about the badge. That was just legit inspirational right there.
