    Haven't gotten it yet, but I can't wait.

    Here's a pic of the RI cover that Roche drew. Don't know if it's been seen much yet, but it looks pretty good:

    Just a quick question for those who buy these via Comixology regularly, do the new issues pop up at midnight precisely or do they kinda just pop up sometime on Wednesday mornings? This is my first time buying digitally (since I can't get the print version for a bit), so I was just curious

    Still massively excited, though! Can't wait for what's in store.

    oh... I can't wait until the posts start coming. Ratchet separated from his body. Pharma doing his best Se7en impression. "WHAT'S IN THE BOX!!!?!?!?!?!". Skids tears through an entire team of legislators (making him several notches above badass) only to get stabbed by a suddenly appearing Star Saber, and Minimus Ambus (of the same house as Dominus) is in reality Ultra MAgnus and has been this entire time?!?!?!


    WTF!?!?!

    This is the first story where reading "Last Stand of the Wreckers" would benefit the reader but it's not required.

    We finally get to see what the Aequitas trials actually did to Tyrest. However, with what we somewhat know about MAgnus now, his conversation with Prowl at the end of "Wreckers" takes on a much more interesting significance.
    Not only does he seem well aware of what Tyrest has been up to, if he doesn't outright know his whole plan. So much supposition with very little data and in this issue Roberts leaves more questions than he answers. And I love it. Now I have to sit and wait for another month. INTOLERABLE!!!


    Can't wait to read others posts to see things I missed and theories to consider. Right now, I am simply mind boggled by Ratchet's predicament, Star Saber's arrival, and Ultra Magnus revealed to be a puppet?

    ..... ;_;

    I wanna stop reading this comic because It just... hurts to read.

    I mean hurt as in "stop hurting my emotions" and I try not to cry at a fictional comic book hurt.

    Well, I certainly didn't see the whole Minimus Ambus thing coming... clever clever Rung. Heh, Ultra Minimus.

    Im also starting to get the impression theres certainly a whole lot more to Rung..

    I also think theres going to be someone else behind Tyrest, Luna 1 vanishing massively predates the Aequitas trials. Although Skids had been missing a LONG time and was in the diplomatic corps and is a genius, could he be behind everything, only to have had a crisis of concience and fled?

    The chest flames line was clearly the best Rodimus line in forever.

    The only bad thing about this issue is now I have to wait 4 weeks for the next issue!

    So the more I had thought about the last issue the more I was positive nothing at the end was real. Everything just seemed WAY too convienient. I was wrong.

    And now I NEED a Swerve with his gun. Like imediately.

    Anyone notice how when chasing the autobots at the start Lockdown has some jet vehicons with him?

    Poor Tailgate.

    The fuck Star Sabre you're supposed to be a good guy!

    Pharma is one delightfully sick bastard, him and Flame would have got on well.

    Wasn't expecting Magnus there at the end. What is with Magnus, it just doesn't seem right for him to sell out people he was prtecting and cohabiting with like that.

    Not going to lie, aat this point, i think we need to see Impactor come in and kick Tyrest's arse. What has Skids done to get him on the bad side of galactic law?

    If Hasbro don't announce a Skids toy at Botcon I'm going to have to make one.

    The Chief Justice may seem visually inconspicuous (did he grow more pointy arches? :)  ), but I'm sticking to my guns.
    ... Actually, I guess being bullet ridden with what could be a borehole in his brow isn't that inconspicuous.
    Energon goodies are a nice inclusion (I thought they were supposed to reciprecate?).

    So, uh, this is weird. The artist for Cover B very much appears to have referenced iGear Rager and Cogz when drawing Huffer and Gears:

    In particular, look at details of Huffer's chest and Gear's arms - those are specifically replicated on the cover, and aren't derived from any official depiction of the characters.
