    lol, TFwiki added a "Deathlist" to their pages for these issues. Seems they are expecting a high body count.

    I think wild crazy ideas stopped being impossible after Shockwave became a black hole and traveled 12 million years into the past.

    When Bee mentions how the forest is ancient, that would mean Unicron is keeping these chunks of destroyed worlds alive.
    The panel below is Megatron experiencing Trypticon's and Pentius' shared memories. (From Primacy #1)

    Maybe Unicron itself was the Quintession homeworld, devouring planets to sustain itself. But when it tried to destroy Cybertron the first time, it was stopped by an army of Titans and Omega Sentinels, most of them being wiped out due to the battle.

    I recently did a tally on the total amount of issues for this continuity, tally came in at 395.

    Over 60 issues more then the Marvel UK continuity.

    What comics did you tell? Did you tell any comics from the Hasbro expanded universe? I think at least Revolutionaries should be counted. And you told Hearts of Steel?

    "But for all that excitement and hype, the actual story feels disappointingly straightforward and unremarkable in issue #1." So events are supposed to be convoluted? *Glances at Final Crisis and shudders*

    "The art doesn't necessarily help elevate the material. Alex Milne's figure work is solid enough. The character designs are varied, and the various Cybertronian characters display a decent range of emotion despite the limitations of the character designs. But here again, there's a certain sense of scale to this conflict that doesn't come across on the page. For a book whose cast is 95% giant robots, you rarely get a sense of the size of these beings and their world."

    Yup, definitely a lack of scale.

    The reviewer does complement some stuff. He even says "There's nothing overtly bad about this first issue." But then he rates it 5.7 out of 10 "Mediocre". Personally I don't take this review seriously, Since there's no mention of Unicron #0 and I don't think there's been a TF review from IGN since Optimus Prime #1.

    Actually the last issue I recall them reviewing was Transformers vs Visionaries #1.

    Yeah ign is just reviewing it for the site traffic. They did the same with Gravity Falls, they only reviewed the series finale just for the traffic.

    I kinda want them to reference whichever Ore Shockwave made that delt with time to explain why the comics are being released out of order. And have the Reflector bots there as narrators/info dump characters, within Unicron, somehow.

    Also: enjoying this so far! :)

    Wow. Shockwave's Ore really got out of hand on that one.

    That was actually entertaining. And windblade and arcee have never looked this good. I love how Milne draws the faces of female bots.

    Honestly I feel Optimus should object to Starscream less- though the use of the symbol is an issue.

    Arcee fights stuff with Optimus and Bee. Elita doesn't really have much of a roll.

    Wow, that was pretty much one of the worst reviews I've read in a while. Especially the commentary on Milne's art is totally misplaced. Either, pretty much everything the reviewer notes as this issue's weak points I think are actually its strong points.

    Plus, you know, this is the second issue in a 6 issue run (counting the FCBD #0 of course).
