    Man oh man! What an issue! Kind of funny to see how Swerve's
    injury was self inflicted
    , but what do you expect when you mess with
    one of Brainstorm's weapons?

    I think the relationships between
    Chromedome and Rewind, as well as Tailgate and Cyclonus
    were some of my favorite moments. In fact,
    Cyclonus
    is really kind of finding himself, both
    when he comes back to help Tailgate clean up, or when he throws himself in front of the bomb to save Rewind on that last page.

    Speaking of which, wow,
    Whirl
    , what a dick. Although he had some high points this issue as well.

    And hey, who was that voice outside the doorway
    inviting Chromedome to come downstairs and help free Overlord? Is Red Alert as incapacitated as we think? Maybe he's "unvincible" like Whirl.
    LOL.

    Just an absolutely incredible issue. Things are never going to be the same for the Lost Light crew after this arc.

    Not got it yet, but I'm going to go ahead and guess that the final page shows 00 minutes, 00 seconds, am I right?

    What do you mean? A lot of stuff happened in Shadowplay. Sheesh.
    I understand, you're not a big fan of MTMTE, you've been pretty vocal about it pretty much every week an issue is released. You also prefer RID.

    Which is fine, but I don't understand why you'd say something stupid like that. Stuff finally happens? Stuff is happening all the time in this book. Or are you simply talking about how the Autobots are 'finally' jumping into a balls-out fight?

    Which makes zero sense, seeing as all they're doing in RID is stand around and talk. Double standards much?

    I honestly don't mind you don't like a book I do, and vice versa - but it's become really clear to me you never come with solid reasons why, and I think you would be better off by simply not commenting on the subject anymore.


    Feel free to go ahead and talk about anything you think this book is doing wrong - it's your right to do so, just like it's my right to, say, comment on Transformers Prime and the things I do/don't like about it - but reading Sideswipe80 say 'this book is bad, I don't like it' with every issue is getting boring... :(

    Brilliant stuff! Finally the Golden Discs, innermost energon, and relinquishment clinics explained! Swerve
    you stupid, stupid bastard!
    Cyclonus is fast becoming one of my favourites. Whirl
    is an utter bastard, hero and villain of the same incident!

    But then the questions... Who the hell was talking through the door? What does 'born dry' mean? And what did Spoke and Lockstock do? :lol

    It's not fair that this book ends.

    Who was the voice behind the door? And did Chromedome recognize the voice?

    I imagine he did. But that it's another example of James playing with the hallmarks of the comic format, like he did with Shockwave's reveal (which was a surprise to us but not to the listeners because he conveniently kept that information from us readers until the very end.)

    Wow just wow. I was terrified that Rewind would
    fade to gun metal gray
    , Cromedome was fantastic in how he gave lots of answers yet created so many more and how can they make me go from wanting to hug Whirl to hang him. bring on issue 13 and more.

    Another incredible issue. Very touching, and of course some good laughs.

    I wonder if other crew members are going to start hearing the voice.

    The use of focus to show Cyclonus looking at Chromedome and Rewind, then the vials was quite effective. The redemption of Cyclonus is a very enjoyable sub plot.

    I was hoping Rewind would die. I thinl it would make Dome more interesting imo. Plus they fight too much like a couple.

    I was actually hoping Rewind would die. Rationalizing in my mind that if more of the z-list characters like Rewind got killed, there would be more room for well known characters. The second reason was that I feel that some of these 'bots are getting too close to each other, and it's disturbing. The pairing of Cyclonus and Tailgate is just bizarre. I bet there's someone out there that rearranged their shelf today so that Cyclonus is standing next to Tailgate. Where is Scourge these days?

    If I were Cyclonus, I would kill Whirl and get the hell out of there. Nobody on that ship appreciates him, as evidenced by the fact that Chromedome wishes he were dead, Command is out to get him and the medics let him walk around in a constant state of disrepair. I'll bet you that 'bots that add nothing but comic relief like Swerve will have a shiny new grill in about 2 issues, while Cyclonus will still be walking around with more parts exposed than a Bayformer.

    And why is Blot walking around calling himself Blip? He's colored wrong, but he's greasy and nasty like Blot, so I'm sure it's Blot. Roberts needs to clear this up. He also needs to explain why no real Autobots die, just the ones he makes up. But it seems to be open season on real Decepticons all throughout IDW. Decepticons have fans too. Some of us even like them better than the Autobots. Especially the Autobots Roberts has chosen to VANDALIZE his comic with.

    I'm sick of "well known characters." keep the "z-listers" at the forefront, I say.

    Because it's a guy with the same altmode named Blip. Who works for a guy named Hun-Gar, not Hun-Grr.

    Seems kinda obvious they're meant to be disposable generic Terrorcon knockoffs.
