    So, right before these books launched, we were treated to one panel teasers scattered among TF sites, comic sites and social media. Each teaser pic was one of the characters with a blurb/mysterious sentence below them. I was rereading them today and some have been cleared up, while others are still a mystery. So, let's speculate shall we?

    I wrote my thoughts after each list about the ones that are still "open books". But, that's open to debate.

    Here's the lists.

    More than Meets The Eye
    Red Alert - Is hearing things
    Brainstorm - Has a suitcase
    Swerve - doesn't know
    Cyclonus - Is key
    Ultra Magnus - Won't make it
    Ratchet - Knows his time is up
    Rodimus - Believes his hype
    Rewind - Does things he shouldn't
    Rung - Wants to be remembered
    Whirl - Hates Everyone
    Drift - is trying too hard
    Chromedome - is being used

    From this list; I feel Red Alert is now being touched on as revealed last issue. Chromedome, Cyclonus, Brainstorm, Magnus, Rung and Rewind I feel are very much open and haven't been touched upon yet. We've seen what Chromedome can do, but I've yet to see how exactly he is being used.

    Robots In Disguise
    Ratbat - Wants power
    Tappet - Wants to be heard
    Skywarp - wants vengeance
    Zetca - wants to survive
    Bumblebee - Wants peace
    Wheeljack - Wants answers
    Metalhawk - Is gaining allies
    Shockwave - Is watching
    Bombshell - Takes control
    Needlenose - Exercises his authority
    Soundwave - Remains silent
    Starscream - Sees an opportunity
    Prowl - Has an accomplice
    Ironhide - Knows a secret

    Now with RID; I feel Ratbat, Starscream, Prowl, Wheeljack, Bumblebee, Skywarp and Bombshell have been revealed. Ironhide is most likely coming up/going to be revealed this week. The two that stick out of this list for me the most are Shockwave and Metalhawk. But, I have no idea where they're going.

    Thoughts? Ideas? Discuss!

    Dirge- Doesn't just die this time!

    Well, I think we can see from RiD #5's preview pages what Metalhawk's promo was getting at--he's becoming chummy with Starscream, befriending as many NAILs as he can... would really like to get inside the guy's head.

    Magnus and Shockwave's are probably the most ominous here. I guess we'll find out what Shockwave has been up to in #6 of RiD, though.

    I think we've had some very light hints on Rewind thus far - he bought those golden discs off of Swindle, and the most recent issue has him begging for help to find some discs that are presumably those same ones.

    Ok cool :) 

    Chromedome and Cyclonus have me scratching my head. Any opinions?

    Chromedome is likely being manipulated by some other force and Cyclonus may be connected to the Knights of Cybertron.

    That would be interesting. What makes you think Chromedome is being manipulated? Maybe everytime he does his mnemosurgeon thing a little bit of something else crawls into his brain and slowly starts to take over?

    Could be, could also tie into the Thought Warfare thing Magnus was talking about last issue. Wouldn't be surprised if those two would be connected. :)

    I expect we'll find out about Ironhide's secret in RID #5. :)  Call it a hunch.
