    Thanks for that.

    So, looks like he's going to reformat into a F22 Raptor somewhere during this story..

    More like BACK into an F22 Raptor :lol 

    Seems like forever since the last issue came out. I'm actually enjoying it enough to pick it up once a month instead of waiting for trade.

    Looks pretty good! Sounds like this will act almost as a TC spotlight in a way. It just won't be a stand alone like the Prowl one. Looking forward to reading the rest!

    This could be interesting.

    But I'm still not happy about Thundercracker surviving in the first place. I mean, they can kill Sunstreaker, but they can't kill Thundercracker? Why, IDW, WHY?

    Sunstreaker's not dead. At least that seems to be what was implied in AHM #14. I do think it's funny that the seekers went from F22s to an older F15, now back to F22s again. I do prefer E.J. Su's F22 seeker design though, so I'm glad it's kind of back with a Don twist to it.

    Was it ever explained why? I've read all the -ation stories and up to AHM #2

    Loving the fact that Thundercracker is finally getting some recognition. McCarthy got the ball rolling in AHM, let's see if Costa can pick up the pace.

    Do you mean why they switched to the F15s? That was never explained. It never made any sense to me.

    Only thing I'm not feeling is TC face, his body is great, but then again that kind of fits with all the characters drawn in this style pretty much. Still better than the art in the Bumblebee series though.

    So, TC's back to the '22, after all the work McCarthy spent convincing Ryall that it was better to have the seekers switching to the '15?(You know, being the GEEWUNNER fanboy he is)



    McCarthy must be furious!!!Schadenfreud!:lol :ev: 



    :bay Modernism wins again!

    I hope that Costa addresses the seekers vehicle changes. Just say something stupid like they had to change it up on the humans or something and I'd be happy.

    On the don-thundercracker cover, I don't think it's possible to give a robot a stupider facial expression.

    good job don. keep this up. I'm loving the money I'm saving.

    Looks horrible. Stop raping my childhood etc.
    I do like that we will get a closer look at Thundercracker though. Even though AHM as a whole was pretty much a dud (except the Autobot stuff) Thundercracker saving the day was awesome, about time they used his bio a bit. Cant wait to read this (and be disgusted by the art) when it gets released as a tpb

    Still annoyed by the mono-face design for all the TFs but besides that I'm liking the comic. I also did like the way Thundercracker was portrayed in AHM (despite all it's faults) and am glad to see it expanded on.

    As for the whole "F-15 switch" thing. When AHM started they kept saying "Oh, don't worry! We'll explain everything behind the alt. mode changes. It's coming! Don't worry, you'll see.".....aaaaand obviously that never happened.

    The big surprise isn't that he's back... he's clearly in issue 2 as part of Swindle's/Scrapper's group during the attack at the Omega Supreme valley (pages 11, 12, 13, 14, 16, and 17). The big surprise will be how he's accepted back into the ranks after his "treachery" in AHM.
