    just got it from the store and thumbed through it and it looks great.

    just want to know what he is protecting now, and why he couldnt take the throttlebots with him.

    Your lack of spoilers disappoints me.

    at work and cant read it fully now, other then most of the issue the throttlebots are running for their lives and sixshot gets chushed by metroplex. then metroplex leaves them behind saying where supplies and shuttle are and bye bye.

    sorry all i know.

    The thread title to actual content in the thread are not matching up.

    Great art, well-done story. Most bots are on edge when Sixshot shows up on your ass, but what if you're just a Throttlebot?

    The story takes place after Revelations and we get an explanation for Sixshot's recovery which is nice. It's left unaddressed if Goldbug is/was Bumblebee, he's probably not IMO. It feels like the Throttlebots have been together for a while.

    Hopefully this is a setup for the main arc after AHM Coda.

    Felt like it was more a "Throttlebot" Spotlight featuring Sixshot & Metroplex to me. Art is sweet though, and it would have been nice if we found out what "it" was. At least we got an explanation for how Sixshot is back with Megatron trading for Jiaxus override codes(and space bridge tech to boot)

    I remember somebody from IDW stating that Bumblebee & Goldbug are seperate transformers in this continuity.

    Oh ok, makes sense. We also now know Metroplex is larger than Fort Max or Omega Supreme in this continuity. It's good to have that settled. :lol

    he can also fly in this continuity.

    any speculation on what he is guarding?

    Doubt it's the matrix as Megatron was supposed to have it according to AHM. Maybe it's Victor Sigma?

    I thought it was the Matrix... but then that would be really confusing. According to the editor's note on the inside cover, this takes place prior to AHM #1. From AHM we learned that Megatronstole the Matrix directly from Prime. Sooo... Prime would have had to somehow meet up with Metroplex, retrieve the Matrix, then get beaten down my Meg's... I suppose it's possible, it just seems so convoluted. Especially since this seems to be happening during/after the big universe spanning attacks. (Goldbug, I think, mentions that it looks like they've already lost the warl...)

    My guess, then, is possibly the Magnificence. I'd be okay with that. I just hope they aren't planning introducing yet another object of vast power/knowledge/whatever. They already have 2 running around this universe...

    I like the fact Metroplex is a space ship not a rolling fortress, I know in a world of size change tech it shouldn't be an issue but something the size of a city or even a large building should not ever be able roll on wheels even tank tracks would be impossible due to its weight, making something insainly heavy fly is actually a lot easyer in theroy than getting it to roll.

    Any way that aside... for a spotlight on metroplex we know next to nothing about him or how he thinks or why he does things, as some one else here said this was a spotlight on the throttlebots with sixshot and metro in it. Also for some one with some many guns you'd have thought metroplex could have at least fired one.

    Was anybody else but me creeped out by how they did Metroplex's dialog? Just a bunch of one-word bubbles in all caps. It made me think he was talking in Stephen Hawking's voice, but using a BM Tankor-like "forced out" way of uttering his sentences. Really inhuman.
