    If you have not read Revolutionaries (a Barber comic) explain a little what happened to Krake, here a summary taken from tfwiki:

    - At some point over the next five years, under unknown circumstances, he lost control of Cobra to Tomax. His fate is currently unknown; to date, save for a poster bearing his likeness decorating the quarters of Siren's Cobra Youth son Isaac, he has not resurfaced.

    -Five years later, Tomax Paoli would oust Krake from leadership and go on to bring Cobra out of the shadows, reforming the ancient conspiracy into an outwardly legitimate security firm with humanitarian ties. Under his leadership, Cobra would keep the peace in the Eastern European nation of Schleteva during its war against Galibi, but his brief reign ultimately collapsed after G.I. Joe managed to bring down Cobra from the inside.

    - It too provides some vague closure to the stories begun in G.I. Joe vol. 4 and Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra, the final G.I. Joe comics published by IDW prior to their revival as part of Revolution. As things had been left, Snake Eyes was working for Cobra for no clear reason, and Big Ben and Duke had allied with Isaac Craft to take down Cobra; this issue reveals that Snake was actually working as a deep cover agent for Joe, and is implied to have been the one who killed Isaac when whatever he, Duke, and Ben did went down.

    That...makes sense actually. I know I haven't given too much thought with the beastformers blindly following Shockwave. When you think about, if Shockwave loses, it's a chance that in the reboot BW Megatron will take after HIM in the name of Cybertron instead of Megatron who betrays the Decepticon ideal Shockwave has. Would he keep the name sorely to spite current Megatron given by Shockwave? Or would he attempt to rebrand himself to honor his master's wishes?

    Does this mean he'll be....SHOCKBLAST?!

    I actually did read Revolutionaries, and while it certainly acknowledges Krake, it still never really explained what happened to him. He was such a strong presence in the comics. To just say Tomax took control and Krake was never seen again never really say well with me. I've always felt like there was something else there. Hopefully we might get a little bit of an explanation here, but I'm not expecting too much. After all, this is a Transformers comic, not a G.I. Joe comic.

    I don't think that is the original Cobra Commander, seeing as he's, you know, dead. I'm fairly certain it's actually Tomax Paoli, who took to wearing that outfit during Revolutionaries.

    You know, ever since she was introduced, I was convinced that Buster was gonna bite it. I mean, I don't wanna see a cute puppy doggy die, but, considering the circumstances...

    Also, can we acknowledge how adorable it is that Thundercracker's communicator is in his hand, and thus he uses it like a hand/finger phone? I live for visual humor like that.

    I wouldn’t put too much on IDW BW Megatron. This isn’t the mastermind of the beast wars cartoon. He’s pretty much one of shockwaves loyal bodyguards and that’s all.

    Obviously these really aren’t the characters of that era. They are more than anything generics with iconic appearance.

    That being said about him honoring shockwave , to quote Megatron from The Nemesis Part 2 “YOU DARE USE THE H-WORD TO ME?!”

    I have no clue what Skywatch is but I guess it's some sort of planet watch task force (As I said I've only read MTMTE) but at no point did any Autobot come forward with what must be hundreads of provable crimes and want to convict him or just expose him for his crimes? Or a decepticon turn up and ask wtf was going on? From the sound of it he just flipped sides and just had a total personality change because "lol so random"

    Look at Bee and Stardrive in that cover. Bumblebee should stop trying to get all the triple changers; he will already have to fight three in his movie.

    Read The Transformers (2009) #3 and then the "Earthfall" arc of Robots in Disguise (2011) or read the summaries of those. That'll get you up to speed

    Love seeing Stardrive on the cover, same to Strongarm!
    And liking the callback to her mini with what seems like Stardrive might be half Dire Wraith now or something else new tied to the story.

    Preview pages are a fun read too. Looking forward to reading this story as completed.

    ty for asking (petrol wabbit) the answer is YESS! and.. as I keep improving some of my dubs I am asking around for voice actors for the Last stand of the wreckers dub I made, you can find most of the comic dubs I made in 'my' playlist
    I'd link you some more but I don't want to intrude on the thread.

    Just a word more if I may, they are all fan made non profit, and are 'edited' to fit my vision of the lore, hence I edited out things I don't like (eg I made an extract of Headmasters episode on Beastformers and tried to keep Daniel totally out of the story - Or in my LsotW dub, I removed mention of megatron being dead, to fit my vision of a unified lore, or rather the parts I like from here and there.

    To get back on topic, same, I sort of stopped last year as first strike kicked inn, I do feel however, after having followed ever since all hail megatron, that it would be a pitty to jump off just as everything gets tied together.

    u're in luck :) 

    (does it count as part of AHM?)

    (what ruined AHM was the MASSIVE continuity error - but the writing, especially if compared to ...'other' more recent series... is shakespeare..) :p

    I do too. :) . l actually love a lot of the concepts presented in it. Taken in isolation I think it’s awesome - it suffers from the abrupt cancellation of Furmans plot lines and not making sense in the context of Furmans work. I think if it had been done as a work of its own (as was originally intended) it would be more fondly remembered.
