Looks like a solid week of comics.

I can't tell you how happy I am that the devil's due material is being reprinted. I missed all those books as they were.coming out and some of those trades got EXPENSIVE.

I hope the Pax Spotlight addresses his body swapping.

Are you referring to what Shockwave...ahem...senator Shockwave did to him in Shadowplay?
Bossguy
Seems like kickback will be hard to find.
YoungPrime
Good news indeed...

I really hope Spotlight: Orion Pax tells what happened to Roller.

I wonder if Optimus even knows what happened to senator Shockwave?

no I mean the fact that in The recent stories, Megatron Origin & Spotlight Blurr he has a different body each time.

I believe Roberts implied on his Twitter that he, and everyone else, does know.

To quote Roberts' twitter:

Quote:
Clarification 2: The Senator being XX is not a surprise to anyone in the present day. He was a famous politician. In the narration Rewind and Chromedome and Ratchet et al would have referred to him by his full name, we just never heard those parts. Bear in mind that we don't hear every word our narrators say; e.g. we don't hear Ratchet say 'and then I saw the Matrix just hanging there'.

Well that explains why they showed no signs of recognizing each other when they met in Autocracy.

(I know the real explanation is that Autocracy was written first, but that doesn't stop it from being an inconsistency)

As for Optimus's Spotlight: Blurr body? I wish it'd simply been retconned out. Because I've always hated it.

Busy week, 2 comics and Starscream on top of my Figuarts Cell coming in.

Odds are that Optimus would have been aware who Shockwave was and what had happened to him by that stage, though.

I'd assume Barber was privy to Shockwave's identity when he was editing Autocracy, given it was a long game of Roberts.
Pcm979
Then it should've been integrated better. That's my point.
Torque
ROBERTS IS WRITING ORION PAX SPOTLIGHT!!! i nearly died from excitement just now, didnt know that.
Pcm979
I just saw the first of those two clarifications. So in Shockwave's Empurata process, they replaced his left hand with a claw. I wonder why they didn't replace the right hand?

... Ran out of claws?
SMOG
I just can't believe we're even raising the issue of characters who looked different in earlier appearances (ie: Pax in the Blurr Spotlight), since this is IDW, and for a 2 year period at least, every damn character was changing their model once a month, with no explanations.

You know, this thread indirectly inspired me to flip through Megatron Origin again.

Yikes.

I don't care what Spotlight Orion Pax is about, it's written by James Roberts, I'm sold.

Good question. I assume "yes" because I also assume Orion knew Senator Shockwave's name before his "change."


Would be nice to see a flashback scene with Orion seeing "post-op" Shockwave for the first time and seeing a sort of dialog between them that could be used as either a closure to their past relationship or a plot device foreshadowing of later "historical" developments.
