    just came to post this.

    Not bad, but did anyone else cringe when Hot Rod called Jetfire "J.F." yikes. Jetfire's dialog was great though, i like his disdain for us humans.

    I'm starting to get used to (and even like) the new Fig designs, but the Jaw design that almost everyone seems to have still kills me. I don't know why it looks so weird/awkward. also disappointed at the lack of background in a lot of panels ~ the 3rd story page (pg. 5 of the preview) only has a background in 1 panel, and the colors aren't helping it look more "involved"

    Cool. I'm curious to see how Wheeljack's gadget supposedly 'diffuses' these restraints...

    How many times do they need to reminds us that the yellow guy is Bumblebee?

    Seriously, enough with name tags for the guys that we saw in other three issues.

    Wow. Hotrod is such an idiot. It's hard to believe that Jetfire would be that dumb.

    I like (most of) the designs but the faces just turn me off. Some designs could use some minor or major tweaking. Maybe I'll get the TPB when it comes out.

    Jetfire's robot mode is....awful.

    And Hot Rod's characterisation is....just not Hot Rod.

    I wish they'd buck their ideas up. IDW started off so well too.

    The only thing I don't like is Hot Rod's sudden dickery. It just came out of nowhere. That's and the random grey on Jetfire's upper body. Looks weird.

    Besides that, I'm also warming up to the designs. I still love the body designs, but the faces are also growing on me a bit.


    For some reason the shot of the Cons in vehicle mode made me giddy. Dunno why....

    Hot rod is an idiot and if that comic's Wheeljack is anything like cartoon Wheeljack, Jetfire would do well to get rid of that thing

    Nice to see Seaspray and Huffer in there. Now, if they could only include Smokescreen I'd be one happy camper.

    His invention counters the inhibitors the humans use to lock transformers into their vehicle modes.

    Still hate the art, still hate the complete disregard for established personalities, still laugh at the fact that every robot is so ****** up that they have to put a name tag on them just to let people know just what TF they have turned into a piece of **** bayformer this time.... To see Ultra Magnus look like he cut himself in the cheek hurts....

    Still going to buy the eventual TPB though, but so far this looks like the worst TF comic ever, and that includes the craptastic mid-marvel run. Oh well, at least Wreckers seems promising...
