    Obvious though it may be you forgot Transformers/New Avengers 1-4 which could theoretically be fit in around Spotlight Kup as a tangeant possible event that may or may not have occured. (You know like on the chalkboard from BtTF PII, a skewered line that leads from Spotlight Kup to Transformers/New Avengers and all that fun stuff. :D )

    Let's pretend that the Avengers crossover never happened.

    It had absolutely no bearing whatsoever on IDW's storyline, anyway.





    Spotlights Sixshot and Hot Rod are the only two Spotlights that provide no real clue as to when they take place. so I assume they take place around the same time as Infiltration... roughly.

    you missed out Stormbringer. Spotlight:Soundwave has a referance to it (In past tense) So I put it before both Spotlights

    Yes that Avengers Crossover was poo.

    I didn't.

    Infiltration 0-4
    Stormbringer
    Spotlight: Nightbeat

    Stormbringer takes place in the present, shortly after the start of Infiltration. Only the flashbacks take place in the past, and they're just that: memories. They've already happened.

    IIRC, Spotlight: Soundwave only references Stormbringer in the cultists telling Soundwave what they are doing and providing some background on where this 'ultra energon' they used on Thunderwing came from.
