Monstrosity #2

Didn't see a thread for this, so I've decided to make one!

Unfortunately, I didn't like it a much as #1. It was cool to see the Terrorcons though, and Megatron's claw arm/cloak getup is pretty badass.

So.... IDW Dinobots are now being rammed into alignment with the FOC mutant versions?

The Terrorcons are going to take down Megatron and challenge Scorponok for Decepticon leadership? The Terrorcons? Are you freaking kidding me? It appears that all the protagonists for this series have been chosen by alt-mode.

'It's called Monstrosity, what monster transformers are there?'

Next month Flamefeather and Cindersaur emerge as the real brains behind the Decepticons, whilst Repugnus makes an impassioned speech to the Conclave that almost reunites Cybertron, but for the last minute intervention of Senator Bugly.

I think much like Autocracy i'm going to sit this one out and read it in one go when its done.

While its enjoyable, its just too short in 10 page chunks.

Also, decide how you're writing Grimlock ffs. If he's supposed to be an intelligent leader then write him as such. Don't try and sneak in a 'Me Grimlock-ism' and then congratulate yourself on your fan-wankery, because it doesn't work when done out of no-where and completely out of context. When Furman did it he found a good reason and moment to. When Roberts did it, it was both funny and poignant, just slipping it in in the middle of a conversation is stupid.

The Dynobots 'lose control' when they assume alt-mode? Ummm, ok. Presumably we'll be told why, but at the first hint of 'Shockwave did something to them' and I'm dropping the title faster than last nights curry.

And not sure what to think of the Decepticons being just as confused about how Scorponok came to become leader as we are. Ok, it's quite meta, but some form of explanation other than 'He's leader, just roll with it!' would be nice.

It seems that every TF universe right now that isn't RID/MTMTE are trying to all tell almost the same kinds of stories right now with the same characters, with beast-Transformer making Shockwave and leader Scorponok and "Don't make me angry" Dinobots. I like being told a story, but I generally like to be told the story once.

Oh look this is turning into another Dinobot heavy book >_>

Seriously what's up with the Dinobots fetish? We were fine without them for years and them jsut being background character but now suddenly it's DINOBOTS FUCKING EVERYWHERE and it's not like they got toys or something. Only Grimlock got one and it's not that good.

I agree, Autocracy felt like it lifted too many elements from FoC's Metroplex-related plots, and now this feels similar to Prime/FoC Dinobot plots.

Autocracy came out before FOC, though...

Didn't realize that Sixshot's groupies were more badass that he was.

I liked Autocracy and was looking forward to this. But I'm a little turned off by what I'm hearing so far.
