    This month, Bumblebee finally returns in Optimus Prime #20 and we don’t get one, but two issues of Lost Light!

    The crew faces off against an army of Spark-Eaters in issue 19 and Rodimus finally faces off with Getaway in issue 20! It’s likely due to the issues being drawn by two different artists(EJ Su and Casey Coller) that makes this possible.

    No sign of Unicron though, guess they’re waiting in that regard.

    I guess Elita One\'s head is hollow and filled with delicious candy?
    And man, I care so little about this storyline I can barely recognize the characters. Who is that behind Soundwave, and who are on the other side?
    Bumblebee also should have a damn good explanation for why he did not return earlier, or why he decided to haunt Starscream of all people instead of reporting back to Prime.

    I wonder if Rodimus' mirror universe repaint was ever planned as a plot point, or Hasbro just knew they wanted to do the toy and told Roberts?
    I am not really invested in the bullet points, because we all know Star Saber, who is a not ever developed non-entity who had like 3 lines so far, will die in such a confrontation, and so will Getway.

    Only thing that interests me in this lot is the new Wreckers story, but I assume it is text only. IDW cannot sucker me into buying the same comics a third time, too...

    Oh look! The final arc for LL isn’t part of unicorns story it’s the crew (NOT DEAD) dealing with all the shit that’s left hanging like pharma, the sparkeater army from drifts vision, no doubt Scorponok and whatever connection he has with cyberutopia. 

    Ya know? All that shit that we’ve been building to!

    His deco isn’t based in shattered Glass. That’s black and purple. This is purple pink and blue.

    It wasn’t a hasbro mandate

    and if its not Devaststor, then I know the Transformers Franchise has gone full blown stupid, and I can stop reading.

    I recall LL Roddy's deco is based on a repaint of his Masterpiece toy , not Rodimus Unicronus

    It’s not a new story, it’s a TPB collecting all the Wrecker stories up until this point.

    EDIT: I stand corrected, I missed that the upcoming Requiem one-shot was on the description.

    I wonder how long 'The Falling' will last for? I predict it will wrap up by July.

    Next issue is supposed to the last, so you are correct.

    Alright! All of these new issues sound to be a fun read. Kinda bummed that they spoil Bee\'s return just like that, but I guess we were all expecting it. I\'ve missed the little guy. Speaking of BB, interested in that prequel comic. Considering the fact that I\'ve somehow missed ALL of the Wreckers saga, this new collection will be appreciated. Yes! Yes! And, also yes! Rodimus Versus Getaway! Finally!!!!! Can\'t wait to see how this goes. If he simply dies from spark eaters, I\'ll be heavily disappointed. He needs to die a brutal death that out ranks all of the Bay films combined. Can\'t wait for June!

    Oh, I'm looking forward to Rodimus vs. Getaway. I know fight scenes haven't always been the best in MTMTE/Lost Light, but I hope we get a brutal punch up with zero quipping, just Rodimus letting his fists do the talking and Getaway getting his just desserts.

    Behind Soundwave is Slide, a Devisian (AKA Micromaster Combiner) whose partner was killed earlier in the series. On the other side Aileron and Jetfire. It's not hard to remember them if you just engage your brain, or you could just keep rocking up to every IDW related news thread to rant about things that are factually wrong about the books you don't like, whatevz.
    Report back to Prime how? Bee wasn't trapped in a singularity and intangible to everyone but Starscream by choice.

    Pyra Magna could still exist with Victorion dead. Maybe it's only her that makes it out.
