    did anyone pick this up? its a good little read, filling in some of the stuff people had questions about...curious to see where it goes...i dig the little easter eggs too, like peter cullen as optimus primes hologram, and ironhide shooting a g1 ironhide...

    so, whatdya think?

    It was a pretty good issue, I really like all the easter eggs like Lenox's phone #, Ironhide blowing up his G1 alt mode & Prime's holo driver. Shame to see Dispensor gone though.

    Was Wreckage ever mentioned in any of the other movie comics?! I'm sort of confused as to how he came to be buried in the sand in the first few pages.

    one of the prequel books, right when the cons landed on earth, he was taken down by the humans, and the cons (led by starscream) just left him...and this is saying they buried him before leaving him...

    I loved it, this is shaping up to be just as great a miniseries (if not even better) than Reign of Starscream. Very cool setup issue. And Ratchet's comment after he killed Dispensor was pretty hilarious.

    Oh, and as for Cullen being Prime's hologram-- I wonder if this means Cullen will show up as that in TF2?

    very good issue and I love the easter eggs a shame the Xbox TF was renamed Y Box and Dispensor wasnt Mt Dew anymore (RIP Dispensor)

    and one final thing......Starscream has gone Emo the Decepticons are ruined :p

    I liked it. But then I also liked the first issue of Starscream's Reign only to be very disappointed with the rest of the series. I hope that doesn't happen again with this series.

    nope, you'd be wrong there. all those easter eggs are the doings of chris mowry.
    i just draw what he tells me. the only things i added were a couple idw signs, and thats it.

    I'm excited to see what comes next. However will all the cybertronian symbols be on Starscream in the film? That'd ruin the whole "robots in disguise" thing....but...again logic should not be applied to a race of transforming alien robots.

    I found it to be an enjoyable read. Nice continuation of both the movie and Reign of Starscream. It will be fun to see how much is revealed about the film in this.

    Think they will do a repaint of SS with the symbols all over him?
