    Come back, Alex. :cry  His covers are so bittersweet now, because I wish the inside of the book still looked like that.

    (Yes, I know he's working on the new Rom/Transformers crossover series. But THIS BOOK NEEDS HIM MORE.)

    I really don't care for Anode or Lug. Although there are exceptions like Rung and Tarn, I find myself just not caring about completely newly designed characters. Part of the main appeal of MTMTE was to see C-listers from the 1980s being turned into popular characters. Very few people cared for the likes of Whirl, Swerve and Tailgate before MTMTE and now they have become fan favorites among Transformers comic readers. So I wish there were less completely new character designs and more toys, even European and Japanese toys, from G1 and G2 appearing in the comics even if they have the exact same role as a new character who never had a toy or any previous appearance in fiction. Windblade had a toy before she appeared in the comics so she's okay. Likewise, Drift and Nautica was given toys after they appeared in the comics so they're okay too. But Lug and Anode never will, and Lug isn't the same character as 1987 Lug.

    Agggggh, how much longer until we get a friggin\' update on what\'s happening with Getaway and the other mutineers?!

    I want to see them wracked with guilt! I want to seeĀ someoneĀ (preferably First Aid or Thunderclash) give Getaway a big fat \"reason you suck\" speech!

    I don\'t care if the mutiny was for a good reason! It was still bad and they should feel bad!

    #MegatronWasSorry!

    (By the way, I do like the covers, but I\'m a big fan of Jack Lawrence\'s more cartoony style.)

    HEY 3P COMPANIES!!!!

    stop making 13 of the same character all at once and make us some judge dredd bots...chug voyager scale...that transform into lawmasters that other judge dredd bots can ride...so we can justify buying two.

    DO IT....I DARE YOU.

    What are the odd that the mutineer's will end up trapped and/or stranded somewhere causing none other than Megatron the standout who saves their lives...?

    Yeah, I'm finding myself getting bored of the current Functionist storyline. Its dragging on for too long and I'm losing interest in the new supporting cast. I want the story of Lost Light to actually go back to the Lost Light. I want to see the repercussions of the mutiny.

    I just caught up on the whole MTMTE/Lost Light series. Blew through the whole lot in the past couple of weeks. Great comic and am now looking forward to each new issue.

    In the meantime, I'd really like an Anode toy. She looks to have a really cool transformation and love her bi-plane style alt mode. I'd also love to get a proper Nautica toy (not too keen on the Blurr repaint/retool).

    agreed...the functionist thing isn't as interesting as when it was first teased and the story is dragging....and i'm with you....anode and..lug? i think is her name...are just boring...i'm tired of every character roberts writes is just a snarky quip machine...one or two sure..but now it's everybody. i honestly couldn't care less about anode's story at this point.

    I don't want it to be over soon. While it may be interesting to see what's happening on the Lost Light, with this few pages I'd rather have the functionist story continue for a long time.

    Although...

    Now that I think about it, I might (MIGHT!) forgive everything if the next time we get to the Lost Light, we see that Getaway and Co. have come across the Scavengers and then shenanigans ensue.

    Again, the key word is "might!"

    Another thing, the status quo of the guys at Luna 1 (Prowl, Fort Max, Red Alert, and Cerebros), would it be enough to warrant a story within Lost Light or their own miniseries?

    Superb subscription covers done by fan favorite illustrators and colorists: Awesome.

    Release date pushed back to May 10: Not awesome.

    I mean, I know that we'll be getting the books eventually and I can wait patiently to complete my covers, but I dont think it's good that IDW is delaying issue release dates like this.
