    You guys planning on doing a discussion about Bullets? Would love to hear your thoughts on that.

    At the time of this recording, only Aaron had read it. I got my LSOTW trade yesterday, and if Vang gets it and wants to cover it I'm sure we will.

    Anxious to hear your thoughts on both the end of Ironhide & the Drift mini so far. I hope you eventually do a book club on Bullets, it really adds to Wreckers.

    This is probably a good place to ask- what's the sequence of TF comics? I've read random TPBs but don't know the order different titles come in so I don't know what to get next. I've got Spotlights 2 and 3, All Hail 1, and Stormbringer, and can't figure out where they fit together. I'd love to get caught up so I can better follow along with these book club episodes, which are awesome despite not having read the books yet.

    I think the best way to read everything is in the order they came out in, Trying to do it in Timeline order would be very difficult.

    Ok I don't read the comics but after listening to this and hearing about what all these other races think of the Transformers it gave me a story idea. Maybe not all of Cybertron is habitable again but just enough is. Then the other races team up and launch a war on Cybertronians all across the galaxy chasing them back to Cybertron and setting up a blockade to keep them there.

    Then they can do a story arc of the stresses and strains of the Autobots and Con having a common enemy but different mentality of what to do about it.

    Please don't worry about the fact that this is 3 hours long. It's perfect the way it is. Don't try to trim it down to a 1 hour deal, it just wouldn't work.

    I find that the longer the episode the more enjoyable it is. Maybe that's just me. When it runs longer it has the vibe WTF@TFW used to have(a group of friends chilling out and talking transformers, not a group of dudes try to force themselves to stay professional and on topic). I loved listening to this one :) 

    I kind of get the feeling that if Dai Atlas's Utopia Dai Atlas will go all out to defend it. We've already seen what Wing can do. Imagine what Dai Atlas can do. It seems like these guy love peace but they are willing to FIGHT to maintain that peace.
    Maybe we'll get to see Dai Atlas(and maybe even the Multiforce) in action.

    I love the idea of a ship of Autobots, badly wounded or whatnot, coming across a space station full of various alien races and hailing them, asking to land for emergency repairs and to deal with wounded only to be told, "Oh hell no. Every time a group of you types land with one color badge, the other color shows up and kills everyone. I've seen this holovid, we civvies die first. You can float out there and rot."

    What got me was the "third" faction in Drift and that they viewed the Autobots and Decepticons has destructive beings and that they hold strongly to their believes that they could go to extremes to protect it or enforce it. So that was some really deep stuff there.

    Random notes:

    Love the D&D readings.

    Circle of Light? Isn't that a Visionaries thing? I think it went that the good guys were captured, and they asked a magical being of Wisdom on what to do, and were told to "Be one with the circle of light", thus, the good guys formed a council.

    Does the bio on the back of ROTF Lockdown's card saying he was sent to "seek and destroy Autobot Ratchet" kind of nullify the statement that Lockdown's are only bounty hunters or now that you guys regard that Lockdown as IDW Lockdown now will you all disregard it now?
