    You say that, but if he doesn't a twitter horde will descend upon him and demand an explanation for whatever scifi trope he uses in the next issue.

    After said Twitter horde handed him this hilariously absurd Comixology best writer 2017 popularity contest badge they are pretty much in right to demand every explanation in length.

    He owes them.

    See, I figure Cyberutopia has got to be a catch. I didn't like how easily Defensor was taken down or Mirage being killed, but not enough to spoil my overall enjoyment, and Cyberutopia is guaranteed not as easy as it looks.

    I mean, heck, remember the forcefield at the portal to it before.




    After all, Shockwave's is *designed* for it, Engima just magics it up, and this one as a Enigma combiner with a dead component. There's Monstructor as well, who's similarly overpowering.

    And... Galvatron did beat Nexus's tribe, who had the Engima. We didn't see any ancient full-out combiners but it seems likely he faced at least some.

    The franchise means a lot to people both in terms of the comics and the figures so people are going to be passionate.

    Which is great for the brand. I do remember some heated arguments over on those boards. I laugh when I think back :) :D

    It is. Reaching Cyberutopia was never the point of the story, it was always how they got there that would matter. That's always how these stories work.

    Yet now that the story is there now you can open the can of worms that reaching Cyberutopia wasn't what it was cracked up to be and it will be nothing like anything any of the crew thinks it is, and that the real Knights of Cybertron are on the Lost Light.**

    ** note I have been very wrong before, but I still blame the unnecessary red herrings on Tarn on the writer. The only way I would've accepted what we got was if both the characters in question actually shared the characteristics given, but instead we got a cop-out blank slate so he can go back and say "it fits!" by cheating.

    It was always my opinion that

    1 only a handful of bots make it to the end

    2 a knight or knights are already on the lost light. In the early days of mtmte rung was my favorite to be a knight

    Rung is showing signs of Matrix affinity that was describe by Getaway - Photonic Crystals. I think there is going be fall out with Mirage's death.

    Rung could be another prime too. Especially with matrix affinity.

    I think he's key to Roberts story. I've said it for a long time.

    Rung is more of healer of the spark so he is meant to be on the Lost Light. Like I said this Cyberutopia is not what it seems and expect to be rotten at the core.

    Luna 1 spark field light up when both Rung and Rodimus step on the surface. I believe it is more to do with Rung than Rodimus.

    I do believe at the end of the series there will be a new Matrix and new Prime. The Cybertronians do not need a warrior as Prime but a healer to unite them.

    Part of me thinks the deaths in this issue are not set. Since Roberts love misdirection and I doubt Mirage will stay dead.

    I think this planet brought back Tyrest, Pharma, and I suspect that it will bring back Mirage potentially. It just the way Star Saber slash at Mirage. I don't think it slice through Mirage's spark chamber, his cerebro processor yes it did go through.

    I think Star Saber could easily hit or miss another spark chamber he just skilled. I think he made appeared that he killed Mirage.

    How many times over the years has a character believed to be dead come back at the end to be a turning point? To be the deciding factor,?

    I do believe tyrest, pharma and maybe lockdown and his team from remain in light will be here. Maybe some legislators too.

    Are they any circle of light members left? If so these could be here as prisoners maybe?

    the Crew members are someways are complicit meaning that they were escaping the war torn Cybertron and wanted pre war time the golden age. I believe Blaster wants this so much he turning blind optic to what is going on the ship. Bluestreak wants a peaceful world. Hound just wants the journey to explore the Universe and that the reason he join the Lost Light.

    It is not they seeking to escape their past. Most of the members are damaged by war,,,,some are more so than others. Even if the Autobots find a Cyberutopia they don't know how to live peacefully those remain on Cybertron are learning how. I am school of thought where I do not believe Cyberutopia does not exist same as Utopian society on Earth is a myth.

    Can you imagine the disappointment among certain crewmembers when they realise its a myth?

    Who is the most invested in it of the main cast? Rodders? Well it was his idea? Will drift be disappointed? I'm sure there are others who will be deflated if its a nightmare.

    Or others who will just go meh

    Very disappointed. I do believe the Knights Of Cybertron will be different from Cyberutopia. This planet they found I suspect there will be no Knights.

    Rodimus is enjoying the quest to much for it to end and it is about the journey. Drift will be disappointed but he realize he will be newest Knight, so he is on his journey to become that. Others will realized that there no magical planet will become a Utopia without hard work.

    Some it will be meh. Hound just likes to explore and journey end will mean he will go look for next great quest.
