    SPOILERS AHOY! Read on at your own risk...

    - It was always going to be Rodimus in the coffin but Megatron showing up changed how it was going to be found.

    - There is more Fort Max story to come.

    - Issue 34, Brainstorm’s briefcase is open.

    - We will see Grimlock and the scavengers in season 2.

    - Tarn and the DJD are the powder keg under season 2.

    - “Overlord is completely dead.” (Said with a grin)

    - Xaaron being on Lost Light was a selfish decision because James liked him, and he’s not necessarily the diplomat character he was in Marvel.

    - James has no plans to blow up the earth to get rid of humans and said that was John’s department.

    - The conjunx endura thing was because he thought that that kind of relationship needed its own name and deserved its own name. He said there’s also a different kind of relationship coming. And that IDW and Hasbro were very supportive of it.

    - Pharma was his favorite bad guy along with Tarn. He also said that he doesn’t create an original character unless there’s not an existing character to do the job. Someone also asked about a Rung toy and how we could get one if he doesn’t transform into anything, and James said that plot and story was more important than toys, but that we might see one.

    - Tyrest was originally going to have two faces.

    - When James described Rung’s design to Alex, Alex put the wheel on his back and then James had to explain it.

    - We’ll see more of Star Saber and he is what happens when religion goes bad.

    Calling it now, the new type of relationship will revolve around Decepticons combining by standing on each other's shoulders. Yes.

    I was still laughing at one points is that it is John Barbar job to blow up the Earth. It just occurred to me that he is going show a relationship that will become a Conjunx Endura? Is that even possible because that makes Conjunx Endura an equilavent to a Human Marriage.

    Not to be that guy, But my bets are on Tailgate and Cyclonus...
    I'm dead serious. We've seen them from moment #1 and we've watched them become friends from that point. And after reading the recent issue Cyclonus seems to care about Tailgate very much.
    He said so himself.

    And theres the fact that after Tailgate told Cyclonus he was going to die Cyc clawed bis own face.
    And then on Luna 1 told him not to hope because he didn't want to see Tailgate get his heart crushed.

    It's been brewing for a while...

    I'm loving everything I'm reading here.

    There being another kind of relationship is very interesting, although I cannot think of what it could even vaguely entail, could Roberts have thought up something completely alien?

    Tyrest having two faces seems like an odd choice, I want to know what that would've looked like. I want to know if Roberts expanded on that, would it have been something like Zaphod Beeblebrox in the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy?

    I love what I'm reading. :) 

    I really hope James stays with the brand, I think it needs him. Reading all this makes me really excited for how Season 2 will unfold~

    I kinda of see it with them. I am not going say it with who. I just means more fanfiction in the works.

    I don't mind romance so much long it is written well. I rather like to see it happen to a couple we don't know about.

    I tried to write a romance it just didn't work out. It came across like Prowl writing a romance novel it just didn't gel.

    Is a Prowl written romance better or worse than Thundercracker's story about Josh Boyfriend who is handsome like an F-22 fighter and Susan Journeyer who deep down hopes that their casual acquaintance will blossom into something more romantic in nature?

    It is more long the lines how love makes people stupid and irrational. Take a leap of faith and take leave of logic to pursue this emotion. I would say worse.

    At this rate I beginning think Thundercracker has things for female humans.

    Disappointed to hear of the lack of Verity, but everything else sounds great.

    You know I read this thread, I read things about Tailgate and Cyclonus and ... I have a sudden desire to search on the back of my skull for a plug to see if I'm jacked into the Matrix.

    This is the real world right,!!? Right !!!?

    No way Tailgate and Cyclonus will become a couple similar to Chromedome and Rewind.
    It's a different dynamic, remember that Tailgate is technically very young.

    If those two end up in a form of relationship, I bet it's some sort of Cybertronian adoption. Robots all come from the same source, yet there are 'houses' and 'brothers'. There's probably a law that accepts robots as closer relatives.
