    Thats nice. I love SS. I wish the protoform figure looked more like the comic book version.

    Dang, I may just have to search out these previews. Looks like the action (on earth at least) is just heating up.

    It's a little stupid how they try to tie the TMI incident with the Transformers story... At least they didn't try to retcon Chernobyl to fit into their story as well.

    Looks good.
    The only gripe I have is that as it's in the comic, we (probably) won't see the Decepticons reformat on screen in the Movie.

    I haven't read these yet, but I'm wondering if anything is mentioned about the self-reformatting process being limited to a one-time thing?

    I've never been much of a fan of the self-reformat as I feel it takes away from the concept by allowing the Transformers to do too much. Them being rebuilt by Teletran One made much more sense.
