    The e-reader on that site is easily the worst thing ever.

    Sky Lynx? Good to know...I rec'd my first TPB about a week ago and can't wait to read the beginning of this series.


    Just finished Autocracy the other day and Sky Lynx was in that series, good to see him. :thumb

    They looked this way since Spotlight #1. I wish they would change to more G1 like or even FoC designs.

    I think the dinobots and Ironhide are overrated but still, will probably wait for the trade on this series.

    This issue needs to be a heavy hitter. The last four issues have all hung their hat on introducing or featuring the return of a character; and except for the Orion Pax issue, they've fell flat so far, especially Turmoil.

    Dinobots need a major debrief to explain their absence from the main stage for the past... four years? I mean, if nothing else, what the hell were they doing during The Surge? I trust Mr. Barber quite a bit, so I don't expect the Dinobots just show up, "Hey guys, we're here now! We're gonna wander off and hang out with Ironhide. Cool? Alright, see ya!"

    But I wanted to get my concerns out there.

    This was an okay issue. Like others have mentioned, I don't care for the look of the Dinobots (or much of the art for that matter). MTMTE and Regeneration One are definitely keeping my interest more.

    I can't get it to zoom in enough to read the text.

    On a side-note, I do hope there's a scene in there where the Dinobots pester Ironhide to tell them war stories..... :)

    Double-clicking's not working for you?

    Considering their reaction to Sky Lynx's stories, the IDW Dinobots might not be as too invested in war stories as much as their cartoon counterparts. ;)

    No, it doesn't. :(  It only opens it even smaller in another window.

    Ah, I see. I wasn't able to read the text; I always did like the idea of the Dinobots being fascinated by war stories, regardless of their intellect level. If what you just posted is any indication, the Dinobots and Sky Lynx scenes are certain to be highly entertaining! :)  Thanks! :)

    You mean you want Sludge to look like a dinosaur that doesn't even exist? No thanks! As a dinosaur nerd, I'm happy that he's a proper Apatosaurus. Many of the Dinobots looked ridiculous back in G1. They didn't even look like the dinosaurs we know today.

    Interesting that the dinobots keeping their earth forms is a point of worry for Prowl, wonder why?

    You remind me of Huffer's line from the G1 cartoon, something like, 'I thought we were making dinosaurs not Dinobots!' He thought it was hilarious. Nobody else laughed. Great moment! :D 

    One of the Dinobot heads in there did remind me somewhat of DOTM Laserbeak's charming mug. :D  Nevertheless I'm quite accepting of most Dinobot interpretations and these are fine with me too.

    I also admire your scientific acumen. As such I could have made a fool of myself quipping sharply that the Dinobots in G1 were perhaps less disguised and more shock troops who generally needed their own island to hide on. Or that ultimately they're no more or less nonexistent/fictional than a dinosaur that has been disproven by science.

    I would not go so far as to ridicule the overtly robotic G1 designs though; this alone should waive any burden of Paleontology you might lay on the illustrators, industrial designers and the like who would have conceptualised these toys. I will defer to your seemingly extensive knowledge as to if said nonexistent dinosaur was invalidated when (what would become) the Dinobots were designed. Furthermore that the designers could have known - even if they wanted to be completely accurate - doesn't entirely mean they would or should be, with particular reference to the lack of internet at the time, and that font of human knowledge, wikipedia. ;)  I at least, could no more find someone living in a third world country today ridiculous for still thinking Pluto was a planet. :D

    Can some one please explain to me why it is okay to call Slag "Slag" in comics, but not in cartoons or games? I don't get it:confused:

    Hey, you never know, the Dinobots might like the warstories of an actual warrior like them. :lol 

    If I were to guess it's because comics are a different medium and aimed at an older crowd.
