I did a small review of Dreamwave a week ago, and just got done with the IDW verse - all except for the All Hail Megatron series. So here is my quick review: Visual Style: I thought the visual style was much much better than Dreamwave's. The Transformers were much more streamlined and less block. And the color palatte was much lighter - not dark, deep colors. I really liked the use of the pistons and wires, also. Much better than the blockiness of Dreamwave's. Characters It started off really well with the Ratchet and human interaction. Seeing the TFs spend the majority of their time in robot mode was really intriguing. It was more about smarts and avoidance than simple battles. Kinda like how Metal Gear Solid redefined the entire "stealth angle", I thought Infiltration redefined the disguise angle for TFs. I absolultely LOVED the Spyhunter/Knight Rider take on it. Dashboards talking to you, smokescreens, hidden missile compartments firing surface to air missiles, hidden laser weaponry in ALT mode, all of it was great. As the series got further and further along, the series got worse and worse. Does Furman know that his comics no longer have to sell toys from the 80s anymore? Why have the Pretenders at all when you could have accomplished the same with the Technobots or robots that had already been introduced. It just got really cheesy - especially the minibots. I really don't understand why Furman still tries to keep EVERYTHING similar to G1. He makes Beachcomber and Cosmos tiny - just like in G1. I would have preferred if he made Cosmos something similar to scale with Omega Supreme. He is a space craft after all - why not just make him a lot larger. He kinda did that with Warpath. Again - the ALT modes of guns for Megatron and Shockwave and tape deck for Soundwave were eye rolling moments. Though he was pretty clever with the dinobots. And really really ******ed with making Arcee a transvestite or whatever the correct term for her is. The plot was ok. He still used a lot of campy plot devices. I want to see a TF series made where there isn't the weapon of mass destruction used as the plot driver. He also kept the hocus pocus stuff down to a minimum but the magic truth telling ball was EXTREMELY eye rolling material. Its like Furman just ran out of ideas on how the Autobots were going to find and solve the problem. He just kept on adding problem after problem and had so many at the end, he had to come up with a cheap magic ball as the key. I want Furman to keep to the original Infiltration series and only have like maybe 10 total Autobots to focus on: Ratchet Hound Jazz Sunstreaker Prowl Ironhide Wheeljack Sideswipe Bumblebee Mirage Decepticons: Starscream Thundercracker Skywarp Blitzwing Astrotrain Soundwave Shockwave Octane Swindle Thats right - no use of Megatron or Optimus. The bots and cons now win on who fights the smarter battle and who outwits/out-manuevers the others. No others. No Wreckers, Reapers, etc. Just go back to the original.
