I couldn’t help but love this issue despite it’s flaws. Spoiler Great action, loved how they tied in the Christmas special to the resolution (or this part of the overall resolution I mean). I didn’t like the Cyclonus/Star Sabre battle- over in two panels maybe? The amount of dross that could have been cut from earlier issues to give that more room. The Getaway fight and death was extremely well done although I found the whole focusing on him being eaten a bit too pornographic tbh. “Look here, he’s being eaten, this is the climax for everyone.” I dunno, on one level it was great he got his comeuppance on another the way it was done seemed vaguely...distasteful. And not in story terms- in authorial terms. Ie. In story it would have been that gruesome but it was more the choice to linger over it like that. Rodimus emerging from the flames in his proper colours was pretty fucking epic though right? That last panel threw me straight back to Time Wars. A vortex threatening to engulf a Quintesson-esque Planet. Except this time the vortex will spit out the Quints rather than destroy them, no? Maybe it’s a huge crossover event and the Marvel Quints are going to invade IDW from Time Wars through that vortex. Hahaha, only joking. I, uh, think.
