    Right from the beginning, what is your favorite moment from IDW Transformers?

    Mine personally is the Shadowplay storyline.

    My single favourite moment was from Stormbringer #3 where Roadbuster, Topspin and Whirl appear out of nowhere to save the two Technobots from the Centurion drones. Love that scene, there are a bunch more from MTMTE that i also like but that was the scene that started me down the IDW TF comic road.

    A combination of that and Megatron's trial post-Dark Cybertron.

    Transformers vs. GI Joe. Every bit of it, plus the commentary.

    I was gonna say Rewind's posthumous montage love letter, but soundwaverulls makes a good case.

    Megatron and Ravage's talk in slaughterhouse, and Rewind's message.

    Hard to put them in order...

    - Trailbreaker rescuing Kup at the end of Spotlight:Kup

    - Jazz owning Springer in AHM.

    - Any time that Shockwave kicks the shit out of all the Dinobots at once.

    - Prowl's narration in "Everything in its Right Place" in the AHM Coda.

    - Optimus and Megatron reminiscing over past battles in "Chaos Theory"

    - Ratchet being a super medical detective in the Delphi storyline.

    - Chromedome and Overlord's mnemosurgery duel.

    - Rewind's goodbye message.

    - Whirl... like, all the time.

    - The Orion Pax and Megatron "time-phone" conversation.

    Looking at that list, I can't help noticing that between Nick Roche and James Roberts stories, it's almost a clean sweep. Hm.

    There are so many that others have listed already... The ones that jump out for me right now is DC when Orion Pax slams his fist through Nova Prime's chest while declaring himself Optimus Prime once again. LSOTW when we are told both versions of the Pova mission. Another is Optimus dressing down Rodimus on the Overlord incident.

    Loved all of these.

    I'll add a couple.

    - Death of Pipes. Just got me in the feels so hard. It's like watching a tiny cute animal slowly die on the side of the road after getting hit by a car.

    - Senator Shockwave reveal in Shadowplay.

    - Alternate reality prisoner Rung.

    - The Black Room reveal, and Decepticon Prowl

    - The Magnus Armor issue opening (reread after the Minimus Ambus reveal).

    - Gruesome death of Ambulon

    - Premiere of the D.J.D.

    - Stowaway Overlord reveal.

    - Almost all of Remain in Light

    EDIT - All that being said, I think my favorite Transformers comic book moment is still "white Prime" Ultra Magnus shedding his armor and saving O.P. from Shockwave in the Dreamwave books (although, my expectations were much lower then).

    But that's why I love him and bought his Masterpiece figure on impulse. I'm not kidding.

    Here's one, when Jazz
    killed the human that was about to kill Bumblebee
    . I did not see it coming and his character was well driven after that.

    Starscream
    shooting Metalhawk and using his corpse to get the people's attention and win their vote
    . People say this is a step backwards, I don't. Sure, Starscream's character doesn't move forward but it is tense watching a character experience large amounts of stress and more satisfying when they overcome their troubles in that moment. I doubt it will happen but hey, enjoy what you have.

    Yeah, love to hate him, I know. Usually I can feel that way about those sorts of villains but after spending almost the entirety of pre-DC seeing him shit all over the 'Cons and having them assassinated, I just plain loath him and no amount of backtracking and retconning form Barber is going to change that.

    It's not backtracking or retconning when all of the clues that he was under the Decepticons' control were already there. Barber never changed his intentions there.
