    "Then the Nightmares came" is a great line.

    It appears Cybertronians are also avid admirers of the foam finger, and I'm happy to see a Prime Vehicon in the race crowd.

    So if Starscream has intakes and his engines function, that must mean that cybertron has air. Maybe I'm thinking to much into this

    I think at this point, people are going 'Fuck continuity, fembots were everywhere, everyone just forgot."

    And the fact that sound could be transmitted by conversation didn't imply air? Sound doesn't travel through a vacuum.

    It's the artist taking liberties/they only look like fembots. They're specifically references to two characters from Jem. I wouldn't think too much about it.

    Is there a forum where I can catch up (briefly) on RID/Prime or whatever its called now?

    I'm barely reading up on lost light lately, I suppose i plan to get the bundles for the other 2 but they really don't entice me anymore...

    The art has shifted to a very RID (the cartoon) look and I just don't enjoy it.

    Is anyone who started with LSotW of earlier still reading this and if so is it worth the read?

    Probably more the artist's fault, really.

    :lol  I also thought to much about it and was starting to speculate that if due to Cybertron's rebirth it had developed an habitable atmosphere for humans

    So we get Pyra's backstory, a Steve cameo, and posh-looking fembots. Color me intrigued.

    Also, I think they're tossing that whole "no gender on Cybertron" thing out the window. Or they're working a different angle for it as in they can appear feminine but without organic perspective they'd never conceive the idea of having separate genders.

    I'm actually fine with that retcon that is if you can call it one if it means getting rid of the stupid no gender/fembot thing Furman put once and for all. Course there's Arcee backstory to consider but then again they could find a way to change it too.

    Wait, are those robot versions of Stormer and Kimber?

    That has to be one of the weirdest Shout outs I've seen in a while.

    Wait, if it didn't have air before, how could jets fly? Why would they have wings? I assume it must have had an atmosphere of some kind.

    ...But I suppose why they would have cockpits when they weren't manned is an issue too. Yeah, we're definitely thinking about this too much.
