    Lots of good and surprising stuff, but without spoilers I think my favorite bit is Magnus's readout on Trailbreaker.:) 


    -ZacWilliam, Wednesday is gonna be EPIC.

    Oh God, every panel had me in stitches.

    "Those pistons are rusted over."

    "Are they important?"

    "Only if you want to smile."

    Aaaaand I'm dead.

    Finally! Nice read so far, though I'm not a fan of the art. It's not terrible, but not that good either.

    Yeah, the art's just okay to me. It's not bad, but not amazing. Colours are nice. Different, but nice.

    I still can't believe how awesome those eight pages were. I want to cuddle Tailgate.

    The art is really lifeless and kind of bland. Wonder why they didn't go with Roche if Milne wasn't available.

    Looks like a fun issue though. Major 'holyshit' at
    Ore (or Shock?) still being alive!

    Yeah, weird they didn't get Roche. I can imagine him doing a lot with the Magnus part.

    I think the main part is both Milne and Roche go for very dynamic poses and proportions, wheras this is very generic, typical G1. As such guys like Magnus who are supposed to be huge and imposing just kinda look like regular guys.

    I miss Ultra Magnus from the original cartoon and the Marvel U.K. comic.

    That was a Ultra Magnus I could enjoy.

    But then this one is good too, just not in the same way.

    Yeah I don't get this, it's the annual, why didn't they get the artists that we actualy associate with the series?

    or atleast got Josh to color it and kinda slighty fool us that it's kinda like the usual art.

    I like this. Especially the gag with Magnus smiling.

    Hopefully it'll be interesting.

    Josh, you got any opinions on the preview?

    That made it worse. If the rights for the name is gone, don't give me false hopes Hasbro.

    "Those pistons have practically rusted over"
    "That's because they've not been engaged for centuries, Rodimus."
    "Are they important?"
    "They are if you want to smile."

    This is why MTMTE is great.

    I heard complaints that MTMTE is too witty. I disagree that its a complaint. This is the best and most fun a Transformers comic has ever been.
