    Love Sideswipe. His Universe figure is my favorite so far, so I'll be looking forward to picking this issue up tomorrow, regardless of how off-beat Revelations seems to have become.

    I bet Sideswipe and Sunstreaker are lovers! That would be cool ... and interesting.

    Canon twincest characters would be odd.

    Very odd.

    That was the first thing that came to my mind after I read that blog to, I'd love to see the shit hit the fan in fandom if it does turn out to be the case.

    Would confirm to me that Furman is a sick puppy.

    I agree, that would be an interesting twist. But if they kiss I'll throw up in my hat. :lol

    That would make a lot of sense seeing how theyre a single gender species and don't seem to have an all spark lol. so how do they reproduce? an assembly line or what?

    would be a very weird twist seeing how Arcee was originally a male autobot.

    Me too. I think it'd be a fun idea, especially to mess with people.

    Hmm, I seem to recall the solicitations for this comic saying that Sideswipe's desire to go to Earth isn't specifically to save Sunstreaker, but rather step out of his shadow.

    Furman said himself on his blog that he knows some people won't be happy with how Revelations is turning out, and I get the feeling he isn't happy to be forced to cut short his storyline, either.

    Man I hope they dont turn out to be lovers, I really like IDW, I would hate to stop reading them and there is no need for crap like that to be in a comic about transformers. There is just no reason to have that! There friggin Robots. So whats next Megatron and Starscream? Furman does not know how to story board a comic anyway, even though I like them I found his storys to be confusing and with out much order. To tell you the truth I'm glad they cut him and give somebody else a chance to right a story. He had great ideas, but he just didn't know how to right them.

    They got rid of Furman? It certainly doesn't look like it to me...

    yea uhh some of the stuff in here... wrong just... wrong... o__O;;

    anyways yea... im kinda disapointed in the fact it apears they are not brothers but Sunny is more of a mentor to Sideswipe... that is going to make me cringe a little but whatever... i love the characters none the less even if they wont be viewed as equals.

    Although its undeniable that 2008 writer Simon Furman pales into comparison compared to 1980s writer Simon Furman, I don't think he'd be as far-gone as to suggest the two are lovers, so don't worry.

    Of course, if he does, Chris Ryall suddenly gets a huge boost in my estimation for getting him off the Transformers comics so quickly!!

    I'm still finding any of Furman's stories to be better reads than All Hail Megatron.

    I was thinking of getting this issue due to Sideswipe but after reading that blog no way. I'll stick to AHM. I can't stand Furman's writing of Transformers.
