    Spoiler Warning: MTMTE #56 Preview Spoils A Major Plot Detail From TF #56

    Just a word of warning to everyone - it appears IDW swapped the publishing order of Transformers #56 and MTMTE #56.

    There's a major spoiler for a plot detail in the as yet unpublished Transformers #56 in the "Story so far" text on the inside cover page of MTMTE #56, which is part of the preview pages that I'm guessing will be posted on TFW tomorrow morning.

    MTMTE #56 is out next week, but it doesn't look like Transformers #56 will be out for at least another two weeks. If you are particularly spoiler-phobic, I'd advise you to avoid reading MTMTE #56 until after you can get Transformers #56.

    Since we review the IDW comics for our podcast, we get access to the review copies early, which is how I discovered this.

    I'm posting to the News & Rumors forum and Comics forum simultaneously, to give everyone a heads up.

    The link from iTunes, for what it's worth.
    On mobile so I can't read it for crap but that third page looks creepy.

    Red Alert's commentary on common comic book expository dialog is hysterical!! Like a paranoid version of Deadpool.

    "Why is he using my full name?"
    "I already know him. Why is he introducing him to me?"

    I know MTMTE doesn't usually hew too closely to the toylines, but... is this a sign we could get a TR Red Alert? Detaching head and all that?

    Not on the list of known figures so far (and that extends up to Wave 5 with some idea of Wave 6). More likely foreshadowing for Titans Returns or the inevitable Headmaster storyline given that he snatched up Chromedome, Highbrow and Brainstorm for the book.

    Wait, if that last panel was supposed to symbolize Red Alert being affected by Tyrest's weapon, wasn't he still in Suspended animation when that happened?

    I never realized how much I would want a TR Red Alert until now.

    That's not him being subjected to the Killswitch, that's what he's seeing his reflection as in that window/mirror he's walking past. Some mental manifestation of whatever it was that drove him to decapitate himself, or something like that.

    It's not symbolic of that, it's seemingly symbolic of when he threw his head into he oil the panel before. He's seeing oil leak out, and his eyes are all black because that's what happenes when a TF dies.

    Also, really disappointed in his vehicle mode. For a 'bot with such curved, bulbous armour he sure does turn into a flat, square thing.

    Nice Preview!
    I hope Red continues to be a perspective in the narrative and not brushed aside once the Titan's Returns plot point gets pushed through.

    I'm very curious about the hot spot.
    How long after the last issue is this?

    Even James' filler issues get me excited.

    It's honestly pretty refreshing to see Red again. It kind of brings me back to MTMTE season 1. I especially like his analysis of Fort Max's expository dialogue.

    Thanks! It's always nice to hear people enjoy listening. I'll pass the message along to Yoshi. You can probably guess his response. ;P
