    I'm really enjoying this series, particularly Don's new Transformer designs. They're a 80/20 G1/movie mix and I'm really digging it now. The only thing I'd change is the Gundam-ness of Optimus Prime's head.

    Hmm, so Spike finally seems to be taking a little responsibility. Or maybe this is just another tactic of his to get Optimus' cooperation (to take on Menasor?)...

    Man, I cant wait for this to come in TPB. I've been avoiding the whole series waiting for the TPB, but it sure looks good.

    By Primus, I haven't read such cringe-worthy dialog in comics since the Avengers Crossover. This Costa guy is a real newbie to comics. Why do we always get such no-names for our TF comics? Can't IDW hire some bigshot DC or Marvel writer, even for a few issues? Sheesh. I wish they wouldn't have dropped Furman's story arc in the first place.

    I wouldn't mind that IF they understood Transformers, otherwise I'd rather people like Furman and Roche just do it (both have proven themselves imo)

    I don't know man. I mean, I kinda know what there trying to do with this story, but it's just so... I don't know... NOT Transformers. I mean yeah, I get it, IDW is trying to rehash the whole lore and start from scratch. But do they have to also kill off the characterization? Not only that, but the way things are happening makes no sense and key points in the TF lore have become trivial and non consequential.

    •Prime has a crisis of conscience-Ok, I'll buy.
    •Bumblebee is now leader- Wait, WHAT?!?!?
    •Hot Rod makes a splinter cell and "decides" he's gonna be called Rodimus from now on- Really... so now any bot can move up the chain of command and change his name like P-Diddy.
    •Spike, instead of the everyman Joe Shmoe is now captain Bad-Ass military honcho, and his dad is his superior officer. - uhhh... 'nuff said.
    •In a stellar change of events, Swindle is not only a double dealing S.O.B. (at least they got that right), but he apparently also got his Devry diploma and is capable of not only fixing busted ass Stunticons in the blink of an eye, but he can also reformat them to become the Gestalt Menasor. - WTF?!?!?!??

    These are just some of the things that are making me wonder what there doing with this book, and how are these stellar moments in WTF gonna set the pace for this book to be ongoing. Some things are actually pretty clever and some things do feel like the characters I knew and loved, but other points of this story read like bad fanfiction. I've given Don's redesigns a try and there growing on me, but I've also given this story a shot and frankly I'm dissapointed.

    Create new plotlines, finally make up your minds and make ONE Transormers universe if you like, hell, rehash the whole thing for all I care, but leave the characters alone!! You have almost 30 years of characterization to work with, don't mess them up like Bay did!!!

    I hate the redesign thing so much. If it were a different universe or what have you, it would be fine (if still ugly) but having characters suddenly looking entirely different without any explanation at all is really silly.
