    Really enjoyed this issue.

    one thing that really irked me though is
    the Reflector bots are dead, they died in Spotlight Wheelie. How are they here working with Ravage?

    Other than that, things are starting to click over, hopefully the story can start properly progressing now.

    Interesting that
    Silverbolt wasn't affected, in the same way that Ironhide hasn't been, and the other Aerialbots turned on him. What protects them?

    EDIT: A thought occurs
    maybe the Reflectors stole Turmoils ship and have travelled back in time to the events of Spotlight Wheelie?

    I've not read the entirety of the IDW series but
    has Silverbolt ever died then come back?

    Yep, looking back
    there's definitely a more than passing resemblance between Turmoil's ship and the one that Spectro, Spyglass and Viewfinder crashed in Spotlight Wheelie (taking into account different artistic impressions and what-not). Plus the fact that the time machine appears to be the product of Varta's people, and Optimus Prime, Hardhead and Wheelie are currently en-route to LV-11, it would appear that Wheelie could be the key to the future of Cybertron after all!

    Why are you guys using spoiler tags? The thread title warns of spoilers and honestly anyone who comes into the discussion thread about something they don't want spoiled is just plain foolish. I stayed away from the video game forums when Fall first came out because I didn't want spoilers.

    Anyway, I liked it.

    Man Ironhide can take a beating.

    I find it a little bit of a cop-out that Sludge (?) survived his dino head being removed. To me a head is his head regardless of mode.

    I'm enjoying the political story going on. Seeing Bee struggling to maintain control is something I like. Granted I think he's wrong and would be urging him to do different things but I like seeing his turmoil.

    What attacked Sky Lynx?

    I'm not enthused about this Arcee.

    But I enjoyed the issue.

    I hope they come up with a good explanation for that. Really seemed like it came out of the blue.

    I think you're 100% correct.

    Magic time ship probably stolen by reflectors in RID9:

    Crashed ship with Reflectors in Spotlight Wheelie:

    Clearly the same ship.

    RID is looking like it's trying to tie up all the loose ends from the Simon Furman run.

    Wow, I didn't see that coming about
    the ship
    . Interesting.

    One thing I've been confused by, and I guess AHM is to blame...
    I know about the Reflectorbots from Spotlight Wheelie...but Reflectorbots showed up randomly during All Hail Megatron too. So are there multiples in IDWverse running around?

    Nope.
    I have a theory, it's rubbish and unrefined, but here you go.

    A new play on 'Till All Are One? What actually triggered the creation of the Decepti-God from Chaos and how? A signal from the planet, but broken, hence why it only nabbed the 'Cons? The same signal that instigated the Aerialbots fusion into Superion? Why though, I have no idea.

    I think that the people who have mentioned Reflector and Spotlight Wheelie are correct.

    The "Fate" comments by them cement it for me.

    From what I've pieced together, it seems that
    the Aerialbots minus Silverbolt all went nuts themselves and started attacking each other like the Dinobots. But after a few days, their consciousnesses "melded" into each other and they basically became a hive mind. Then Silverbolt joined them, and they physically merged together into Superion.
    And yes, he does look pretty awesome.

    Also, for those complaining that the Reflector trio are alive again, they were already resurrected with no explanation in AHM. Barber seems to be trying to explain this through time travel, so don't be surprised if they turn up dead again next time we see them.

    Also, with Shockwave hinting that he knows the Reflector trio are going to die, I think his plan is to have the time traveling-machine end up in Jhiaxus' clutches...
