Got this issue today and loved it. I love both series, but this one is my favorite of the two. Swerve was great once again and Skids continues to impress me. I actually want to buy a reissue Skids now. And, of course, it's nice to see Smokescreen mingling amongst the crowd. I hope he gets a chance to come to the forefront at some point.

There is Sunstreaker, so there would be Bob, too. I personally prefer Insecticon rather than fox.

Rossum's Universal Robots (R.U.R.) is the Russian play that invented the word "Robot."

-ZacWilliam, definately an easter egg.

So, has there been any speculation on what sparkeaters actually are (besides terrifying)? It sort of looked like a skeletal Cybertronian to me. ...Some kind of Quintesson experiment, maybe?

Been wondering this too! Buggin' me all afternoon. Your idea makes the most sense I believe.

Just a fantastic home run issue. My beef now is I need toys.

I never, EVER, gave two craps about wanting a Generations Skids figure. Now here I am. Waiting...

Along with Chromedome and Swerve (Hopefully from Igear)
Listen to me week nights on KTEG 7pm-11pm MST HERE.

Only if there is a pistol molded into his hand!

Let's wait and see. Last Stand of the Wreckers was four measly issues, but if that's not the reason we got Commander Guzzle I'll eat a Kreon.

The amount of substance in this series is very refreshing. I generally view modern comics as vapid trash too focused on art. It's delightful to sit and actually *read* each panel.

I've seen him being named as grapple on the Idw boards but he looks abit more like sandstorm to me, bearing in mind ive been wrong about pretty much everything else so far!

Ooooohhhhhhhhh! Looks like I'll be waiting another week to get hold of this, called the shop I normally go to and it's not in there yet, on the plus side when I do go in I'm finally getting my hands on RID #1 & 2 as well, but still, a whole week! What am I to do (other than everything else I'd normally do, haha)?!
