Stardrive is so cute!
I don't care much about Rom, I don't know that franchise at all...But it was awkward seeing Starscream back as a vilain.
Enjoyed this Poor Stardrive just wants friends and acceptance.
I remember someone in the Preview section wanted a young Stardrive from the tumblr side of the tf fandom? I saw a post this morning and thought you'd like to see it.
May I request a Baby/sparkling/bean form of the...
Okay, imma just say this now: fuck the organics.
Stardrive is too adorable and how dare they be so mean to her.
It's nice to see Starscream get to be a villain again, even if it was for a couple of panels.
But yeah, this issue was SUPER feel-bad. Everyone is so mean to Stardrive! I hope she gets to have some good times with Magnus and Bee in the next issue.
I get the feeling, though, that this story isn't gonna be a very happy one.
As someone who has defended the post-war status quo of IDW from the fans who want it to go back to the same old war setting, it is pretty nice to see a classic Autobots vs. Decepticons battle again. I wouldn't mind seeing more war flashbacks to flesh out the backstories of some characters.
This issue feels like a really good way to do a crossover. It helps that the Galactic Council stuff from MTMTE forms the perfect bridge between Rom and Transformers, and it plays on themes of how other races view Cybertronians that has been around since McCarthy. Definitely a promising story so far!
(Also Milne's art is perfection and it's bittersweet to see him here and not on Lost Light.)
Now that was a good crossover.
-Focus on less franchises and less characters of these franchises
-Using transformers that we didn't see in action for long time
-More in depth info on galactic council.
And good artwork and start of story in my opinion
Stardrive is excellent
I was worried that wartime TFs would read too much like old books in a bad way, but Starscream was written so on-tone as a much younger version of our current President Starscream, I was very pleased
Rom is once again a fun dude to read, I need to actually read the real Rom book
dear Barber & Gage, plz don't kill Stardrive by the end, I want her and Centurion to hang out thx
That was an extremely good issue. Milne was excellent, the story very character driven. It's really good to hear of the Transformers war from the perspective of other civilisations more.
*High pitch squeeing noises* ITS SO CUTE! IM GONNA DIE! THANK YOU!
And yeah. Stardrive gets major feels in this. She gets judged by the actions of others by those who have bias against living machines. Looking forward to the next issue.
I really felt for Stardrive, no matter where she went or what she did, she was met with only hate. Not only that, she's been led to believe that her own kind are monsters due the galaxy's bias views on Cybertronians. Here's to hoping that Ultra Magnus and Bumblebee can give her a clearer picture come next issue.
It really was a breath of fresh to see something set during the war again. Not to mention seeing Milne on interiors again.
I can't wait for the next issue.
Before reading the issue I was kinda skeptical about having another crossover but I really liked it. It's always nice seeing Milne's art again and the story was well paced and enjoyable. I'm genuinely curious to see how the rest of the story is going to play out.
Loved it. Loved Stardrive, loved temporarily being back in the war, loved Milne. Also, Rom.
I loved this issue. I haven't been so glued to a comics pages in awhile.
As a regular reader of ROM, it was awesome seeing so many of the Solstar Order working together all at once because let me tell you, it doesn't happen often and Stardrive is just precious.
so lets open up bets....who's handling the stardrive figure? is hasbro going to crank one out? MMC? maketoys? and with or without squid thing stuffy?
Unless its an exclusive I dont see Hasbro doing it. MMC? Not really since they're focused on Lost Light and a few other things. I'd be okay with Iron Factory making one cause cute. And yes, plushie should be included.
eh iron factory is too small of scale...gotta be a deluxe size....
If Stardrive becomes a popular character, I don't see why Hasbro wouldn't. They've done a Nautica figure.
I don't know. If MMC has a figure that they think they can retool into her (and reasonably get their money back on) I think they will. They've done Strika, Turmoil, and Death's Head and are doing Obsidian, Bulkhead, and Wing. None of those are really MtMtE or Lost Light characters. A retool wouldn't really be an ideal solution since there would obviously be compromises, but I could see it happening.
