    Alright, we first saw preview pages of issue 2 a while back.

    Specifically, the one featuring an as of yet unseen character from Starscream's infiltration unit on earth-

    The dude with the blue visor behind Skywarp, everybody was like "who is this guy!?".

    So I picked my copy up today (inflated wolverine cover and all) and flipped to the page...the art had been completely redone where that character had stood, Thundercracker was now chilling out.

    So okay, the new character is obviously Ramjet, but I'm still trying to figure out, even if that was originally supposed to be Thundercracker, why did the preview art come out looking like that?

    It's all part of Doom's plan... or is it?


    Anyway, I like this comic so far, even if it's a bit slow-moving for a Miniseries.

    I wondered WTF as well. Where did that guy go?

    EDIT: Also I have to say that while this issue was not as good as the first I do find myself intrigued. I would like to see where this goes.

    Looks like Pounce or Wingspan to me, but I could be wrong.

    I'm liking the notion of draining Spidey's powers and using them to supercharge Energon. Should make for a great Iron Man/Skywarp fight.

    I also really, REALLY liked Jazz running Wolverine over to calm him down. :D

    this whole series is a "WTF moment". We have ramjet's head jumping off model from panel to panel, primes in robot mode one moment, truck mode just hanging out the next, and back to robot mode when the decepticons burst out. we're also supposed to believe that Tony Stark had a giant armor just sitting around in case transformers appeared, that he never used before, even though it would have definately come in handy before now.

    and it's pretty obvious that the temp character seen in the previews was just put there to bait us into buying the damn book, just to see who it was.

    Judging where this should fit in IDW continuity (right after escalation, thats the only place it can), they'd already have Ore-13. why bother with these upgrades then?

    this whole thing is stupid.

    Ryall said that this fits between Infiltration and Escalation.

    I doubt that this is in continuity.

    Perhaps as a backup energy source. And it is an easily renewable energy source, just keep Spidey alive. Or they could just clone him and use his clones as an energy source for Decepticons on other worlds.

    Its like a "What if?" set between Infiltration and Escalation. At least we get to see more of the IDW TFs in action >.>

    Was the Decepticon Ramjet? I remembered checking out that particular panel and it was Thundercracker!
