    So issue 50 is fast approaching, and I've noticed this hasn't cropped up yet, so I figured I'd start it myself. So basically guys: What's your favourite issue, moment and character from MTMTE. You don't need to give reasons, but feel free to anyway.
    For me, my favourite issue would be 13, Cybertronian Homesick Blues, as you get to see the banter and mishaps that the crew deals with contrasted with some truths from Swerve, Mags and Tailgate.

    My favourite moment would have to be Meg's breakdown, just cos we see that even the great tyrant that waged a war against the corrupt government cannot handle what's goes on within the Lost Light. Rewinds last moments was a close second because of how heartbreaking it was.

    My favourite character was tough, but ultimately I settled for Nautica. Why? She's so dorky and adorable you have to love her. Rung, Tailgate, Cyclonus, Swerve and Mags were all close.

    So what about you guys. What issues, moments and characters made this excellent series for you?

    Cyclonus versus Star Saber and Megatron´s heart to heart talk with Ravage are my top 2. Swerve and the redshirt´s (Shock or Ore) talk about religion and afterlife was also well done.

    Can't name a favourite issue, but favourite character is Whirl, and favourite moment is between Senator Shockwave and "I love you."

    I love the look of Tarn, and anything with Fort Max. I also love the banter and zingers, Cyclonus and Whirl are pretty good for that: "Easy on the jargon Ratchet. We didn't all go to medical school."

    My favourite part I think has to be Megatron talking about Rodimus' ridiculousness and how he pretends to be dead if you ask him a difficult question. :lol  While I'm occasionally in shock that Megatron is an "Autobot" and on a mission instead of in jail, the interaction on paper has been so worth it...

    Same and same, I've said it a thousand times, but Megatron has been a way better character with the role he's now in.

    Which is, imho, a little bit ironic. I know he's putting a lot of effort into it, but not being baited by Whirl, not totally over-reacting to Tailgate, and the dynamic in general. I hope it stays this way for a while.

    There's a neat series of posts going around Twitter for reasons MTMTE is great. One or two of them.

    Pipes being stomped to death by Overlord left quite a lasting impression on me. He went out a true hero.

    Favorite character has been a tossup between Ratchet and Cyclonus. Cyclonus took the already interesting spin on the post-movie Decepticon characters and continued on to a really cool character arc. Also, he's a badass spaceship ninja demon samurai. Ratchet is the crusty medic with a rough attitude, who's only a jerk because he cares, and is the ship's champion deadpan snarker. I read all his dialogue in the voice of Kelsey Grammer.
    I don't count Ultra Magnus because I'm just a massive fan of his in general.

    My favorite moment is probably Cyclonus and Whirl making peace with each other after slaughtering a crapload of Legislators and Decepticons. Cyclonus getting that last daydream of shoving Whirl in the smelter and their uneasy transition to battle bros just made my day.

    Let see. "Scavengers return."
    "Megatron face palming every time he has conversation with Rodimus."

    "Most Skids story line."

    Fav characters - Rodimus, Ultra Magnus, Swerve, Cyclonus, Brainstorm, Whirl, Fortress Maximus, Nautica, All of the Scavangers and Overlord.

    Issue - The Senator Shockwave ones were pretty cool. I love the holiday special too.

    You do realize there's a pun in there? Just can't put my foot on it..
    but yes, that moment has such an impact.

    It's pronounced "SCAVENGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    Off the top of my head...

    Whirl being a hostage.

    Cyclonus reacting to Tailgate's diagnosis.

    Swerve's gun.

    Cyclonus versus Star Saber.

    Issue 22.

    Chromedome versus Prowl.

    "You broke the Matrix."

    Megatron explaining to Ravage what he is doing.

    The personality ticks dying because Rodimus and Megatron just entered the room.

    The DJD on a Tuesday.

    The Scavengers recap page.

    And I know its a cliche, but, "I love you."

    Hey, speaking of overreacting to Tailgate- remember when he drew a gun on Tailgate in response to Tailgate drawing on him?

    He's grown.

    Beat me to it!

    Yeah that's the pinnacle of the series for my thus far.

    Some of the other deaths were somewhat gratuitous (Ambulon) or quickly undone (Rung). And I still maintain that in an earlier draft Pipes was meant to be Swerve because there's things in his monologue that describe Swerve pretty well.

    He died suddenly, shockingly, just by being at the wrong place at the wrong time, and his dying act just may have saved the ship.

    Dying alone a hero, unknown.

    It's sad, but it's the single most memorable scene in the series (thus far)
