    Only one cybertronian with beast mode is odd. Maybe he would be leader of a NAIL group whose alt. mode is beast.

    Love his expression in shark mode. Its like he's thinking, "Ugh... they're pointing at my exhaust port, aren't they?"

    I mean, beast modes aren't all that uncommon in IDW. We just haven't gotten a proper explanation for them outside of the Dinobots.

    I always imagined Roberts would come up with something, he's usually good at that sort of thing.

    OK, now I have to start reading this series (and might as well start on MTMTE while I'm at it...)

    AHM got me to quit... I read an issue here and there between that and the ongoing and still didn't like it. Issue one of both series sucked me back in with a fresh start (and I got the HC of LSOTW because of the hype and LOVED it).

    One of the things I like about the new series is the mix of characters. I hate it when books are regulated to the 84-86 core cast with some others sprinkled in as cannon fodder.
