In stores tomorrow, I read it today.
Just what I expect from James Roberts.
I won't give too much away as it isn't fair on others, but once people have read it, come back and chat.
All I will say is Rack.

I never cared for the Spotlights nor did I find them fun or interesting..
But this one I'm really hyped about! Come on wednesday!

Didn't fix anything. Gave us an origin story of sorts to Rack n Ruin and Bludgeon.
I expected a larger tie in to Spotlight Blurr. Seems like there should be a part two that does tie in to Spotlight Blurr and that this was part one. Does anyone know if these new Spotlights tell a connecting story or if they are standalone like previous ones usually were?
And we should all wear face-plates from now on. They serve a purpose.

That was ace. Roberts writes Pax as a proper legend in waiting, his proto-Prime shenanigans are bloody awesome fun.

I love Optimus but find this Spotlight unnecessary.

Zeta got a real makeover since the last time I saw him. He and Unicron must have the same haberdasher.
Silly Pax antics mixed with a little gravitas. Felt like fluff to me, but amusing fluff.

This was brilliant. Fun and frolics with Pax
I love how rough and ready Roberts Pax is, truly a hero and inspirational leader in the making and not someone who's being followed purely because he bears the Matrix. Great to see Alpha Trion and Nightbeat, although it seemed a strange mission for a supersleuth, I'm surprised Roller didn't go with them instead. As ever with JR there was some lovely world building and background expansion going on.
Only thing I'm slightly disappointed with was that we were promised startling revelations that would have major repurcusions for the ongoings that weren't really forthcoming, unless Ratchets spell as a prisoner is going to have an effect soon.
Who is Megatrons new favourite who has a thing about combiners? I immediately thought of Shockwave, but was Bludgeon into that as well? Is that where Ambulon came from?
