    It seems like a lot of characters have dead recently.
    But is it true that Robrts is killing more characters than previous writers have done? Or is it nothing but my feeling?
    I wanted to investigate it, so I decided to count the casualty from the beginning of IDW's TF series.

    Note: This list includes non-Cybertronian characters as well.
    • Sentinel Prime (Megatron Origin #4)
    • Ramjet (Spotlight: Ramjet)
    • Outback (Spotlight: Kup)
    • Runabout (Devastation #6)
    • Runamock (Devastation #6)
    • Viewfinder (Spotlight: Wheelie)
    • Spectro (Spotlight: Wheelie)
    • Spyglass (Spotlight: Wheelie)
    • Nightbeat (Spotlight: Hardhead)
    • Doubledealer (Spotlight: Doubledealer)
    • Nemesis Prime (Spotlight: Sideswipe)
    • Hunter O'Nion (All Hail Megatron #12)
    • Thrust (All Hail Megatron #16)
    • Ironhide (Ongoing #1) - revived
    • Rotorstorm (Last Stand of the Wreckers #3)
    • Topspin (Last Stand of the Wreckers #4)
    • Twin Twist (Last Stand of the Wreckers #4)
    • Pyro (Last Stand of the Wreckers #5)
    • Ironfist (Last Stand of the Wreckers #5)
    • Scrapper (Ongoing #8)
    • Wing (Drift #4)
    • A NAIL protestor (More than Meets the Eye #1)
    • Horri-Bull (Robots in Disguise #1)
    • Ore (More than Meets the Eye #2) - revived?
    • Polaris (More than Meets the Eye #2)
    • Hyperion (More than Meets the Eye #2)
    • Shock (More than Meets the Eye #2)
    • Ratbat (Robots in Disguise #2)
    • Animus (More than Meets the Eye #3)
    • Barrel Roll (Robots in Disguise #3)
    • Dent (More than Meets the Eye #4)
    • Sunstorm (Robots in Disguise #4)
    • Zeta Prime (Autocracy #8)
    • Sonic (More than Meets the Eye #5)
    • Boom (More than Meets the Eye #5)
    • A lot of Ardurian Roc (Robots in Disguise #6)
    • Black Shadow (More than Meets the Eye #7)
    • Flywheels (More than Meets the Eye #8)
    • A Metrotitan (Robots in Disguise Annual 2012)
    • Varta (Robots in Disguise #10)
    • Wheeljack (Robots in Disguise #14)
    • Bombshell (Robots in Disguise #15) - ??
    • Hipotank (Robots in Disguise #15) - ??
    • Pipes (More than Meets the Eye #15)
    • Rewind (More than Meets the Eye #15)
    • Overlord (More than Meets the Eye #15) - ??
    • Metalhawk (Robots in Disguise #16)
    • Tripodeca (More than Meets the Eye #16)

    This list is based on my memory, so isn't perfect. I'll be glad if you help me completing it :)

    More than meets the eye preview 16 states Drift is gone. So I assumed he died.

    In MTMTE issue #8, Necrobot listed Drift as dead 18 months after the Lost Light's launch. In the same issue, Necrobot listed Hound, Dipstick and Chromedome as dead. As for when, those can be question marks at this point in time since their deaths are listed to occur 18 months in the future.

    I am guessing you are not counting the necrobot list.

    I was under the impression that Red Alert tried to commit suicide.

    Look at the cover. There's a shattered Autobot symbol behind him, and no symbol on himself. It's kind of obvious that he leaves the Lost Light, not die.

    It could also mean he's been removed as a point of authority, jailed, or under some form of restraint too. There's no reason to think he's dead or completely kicked off yet. For all we know, he left on a spiritual journey to try to find peace with himself for what he's done.

    As for deaths, would the millions of humans Megatron wiped out when he took over earth count? ;)

    Perhaps but it is good topic anyways.

    As for Earth human deaths I think they played no significant role in Transformers Universe they do not count.

    I'd say that Roberts has killed my desire to read a lot of other books. The other books I read aren't bad, but a lot of them aren't as good.
