    Erimite Xaaron is also on board, though I think I butchered his name. He's a UK version of Alpha Trion only not a wimp. Or at least that is what I read of his personality on the wiki.

    Found and added him. Seems a strange choice for him to go along, since he seems to be one of the Autobot councils chief legal minds, you would have thought he'd have stayed on Cybertron as part of the fledgling government. 'Bee could probably use his advice and diplomacy. It will be interesting to see if he actually gets used.

    Roll-Out and Siren are also aboard. Both were ejected from the Lost Light during the explosion but survived (I think).

    Is Roll Out the big orange guy? Been wondering who that was. Both added.

    Pretty sure that's Smokescreen. Bluestreak/Silverstreak is still on Cybertron.

    Just for fun, can the Sparkeater be listed as a caged monster or something? I mean, hey, right now you've got Tailgate listed as a relic.

    Sunstreaker's on board. He's visible from behind in the big group shot in Issue #2. Gears and Hound are there as well.

    And as long as we're listing titles, you might as well list Magnus as "Duly-Appointed Enforcer of the Tyrest Accord" in addition to being second-in-command.

    Bob the Insecticon was also mentioned as being on-board in a podcast interview with James Roberts.

    Out of curiosity, do you have a link to said interview? I would very much like to absorb any iota of MTMTE-related knowledge I can.

    Yep. That's him.

    Also looked through the issues and saw Pipes and possibly Sureshot. Both are seen on Ultra Magnus in issue 2 and Pipes is on the cover of issue 4.

    Thanks. Hoping that Bob pops up soon- he was one of the elements of Costa's run that I really liked.

    Given that there are at least 200 Transformers aboard the Lost Light (well, possibly "were," given that hull breach disaster), I wonder how tricky it's gonna be to explore the several dozen characters on that ship.

    I love that Pharma's hands are a part of the crew!

    I didn't see him on your list, but Hoist is also there. He hauls Cyclonus out of the drink and then gives him a stare in in issue 3.
