    Me too. Eukaris was my most favorite of the colonies; it seemed more interesting as it was essentially a haven for beast transformers.

    Somewhere in the IDW office, John Barber is facepalming and rubbing his forehead muttering, "Dang it Jim, why do you insist on wanting to do your own thing? Ugh, I can't even..."

    By the way, how likely are we going to get like an Annual that serves like a grand finale to this universe by John Barber and James Roberts? Or is it just ending once we get Unicron #6, OP #25 and LL #25?

    We haven't heard anything but that would be a nice way to end it. Do it IDW

    Where are you getting Gigantion from? It hasn't been mentioned at all in this continuity.

    Me three. I was really looking forward to TAAO exploring Eukaris, particularly where the Fuzors fit into Eukarian society. Alas, my dream of seeing Injector, Silverbolt and Torca getting some page time in the IDWverse was not to be.

    Yeah. I was hoping they would explore more of Eukaris, too. Forget Caminus, Velocitron, and Devisiun (the 3 other actual Transformer-populated colonies), Eukaris was the most interesting, since its inhabitants were bestial transformers. Vehicular transformers are boring.

    It's likely an homage to it, probably not directly it. Though who knows. Comics can do multiverse theory, but they really haven't dabbled in that with transformers in a broader sense since the DW days. At most, it's likely an homage/new interpretation of that. Not sure though, I have some comic reading catching up to do for this event. The previous BWII/Neo ship was only a ship though that was made to reference Unicron due to story reasons. But they are nodding many past incarnations in the designs. I think even the Cybertron Tank Ship Unicron got some nods in through some designs from the looks of these panels.

    Kind of like how Earth itself has a ton of competing creation myths both scientific(some sane ones and some outright "wut are you smoking" ones) and spiritual/myth based. So really not surprising that cybertron would have as many if not more too. These are stories handed down and retold, all from various second hand tellings, or from different perspectives of what different characters believed or thought was true at the time. Much like how earth myths and legends evolved too all over the world, some intermingled, some didn't. Some clash, some contribute, some expand, some refute, and science has its own wide array of theories that range from practical to the outlandish.

    Optimus as he says here has been mostly a "non-believer" but wasn't above using it to rally people behind him for the good fight. And now he's faced directly with these legends, or at least the truth that was buried deep beneath them.

    well, i'm glad important, interesting and underused characters like... 90% of beast wars guys, are reduced to generic cannon fodder for the rest of the idw cast to just plow through.

    So, will this have a lot of spoilers from The Falling Parts 5 and 6? If so, I might put off reading it till those come out. Even on the Story So Far page it had a pretty big spoiler (although, to be fair, it's not a particularly hard one to guess, but still...). Otherwise, looking forward to checking this out.

    I like the swirling clouds confirming Unicron has his own atmosphere.
