    I thought his role might be relegated to a cameo. Just a little easter egg for the fans. But I'm glad to see he's a main character in this issue.

    And then Ironhide and Sky Byte went gay for each other.

    Kiss him...kiss him...

    Also! I guess this confirms Wheelie left on the Lost Light.

    Not quite. According to interviews
    he, Hardhead, and Garnak went off on their own. Orion runs into them next issue of RiD.

    "Reminds me of someone I knew. Long ago."

    I hope that Arcee has enough morality to disregard Prowl and leave Dirge alone.

    Wait.... I don't get it.

    I thought he just meant that he knew Scourge before the war.

    No, it's almost certainly a reference to someone the original Sky-Byte knew--RiD Scourge.

    I like not-buffoon Sky-Byte.

    I also like how Starscream just politely backed off and left him to Metalhawk. Guys who follow you around trying to convince you that they've 'changed' or 'are good now' are normally just trying to convince themselves. Whatever Starscream has become now, he's firmly grounded in it. Our new backstabbing schemer is Prowl. And he doesn't look thrilled with the role.

    That's irrelevent. The joke is Sky-Byte was reminded by a Scourge clone of someone he knew; he knew a guy called Scourge on the RiD cartoon. That's the joke.
