Wooo.

Can't wait.


-ZacWilliam, I'd buy these books weekly if I could. Sooo good.
Maverick Hunter Christian
We're back to calling him Hot Rod again? ...I'm gonna go ahead and assume that was just a mix-up in prepping the solicits.

*edit*

...am I reading that right? Livio's doing the internal art for RiD #6? ...is there an emoticon that expresses slight apprehension with a lip curl?
MechaV
Optimus back already? That didn't take long.
bossprime
Aw man I'm disappointed that optimus is back already. I felt like they had a good ending for him and he should really stay out of the comic for a while.
kristaldoodle
Totally buying the MTMTE paper back but...that cover for #6. My heart aches and im shaking because it seems in now attached to Rung because I RP him ;_;
Stryker055
Though I was hoping we could keep Optimus away, having him show up as at least a secondary character (and as his new character, which should be awesome) is fine with me.

Rung just can't catch a break.

And I noticed Roche will do art for MTMTE #6. (...What happened to Rung?)

But Orion Pax returns!? Hey, then why he left Cybertron at the first place?
IaconStargazer
Orion Pax is making a temporary comeback? Um...okay.

Hey, all it says is he's on a "shattered planet." Isn't necessarily Cybertron.
DarthCrusher
Theory time!

-If the "shattered planet" isn't Cybertron, then Shockwave's going to make it off-planet sometime in the next three issues.
-The squad of fan-favorite characters are the Dinobots, minus Grimlock.
-Shockwave's going to be employing Grimlock as a weapon against them.

Bout time Prime is back! Woo hoo!! Only bad news is that Livo and Roche are back. Ugh.

In an attempt to look on the bright side, his art in Autocracy is a little better than what he did in Chaos. But I'm still apprehensive about this issue. I mean no offense to Livio at all, but his art is an aquired taste, and I haven't acquired it yet...

I'm glad Roche is coming back for another issue though! Milne's work in the series is fantastic, but more art by Nick is always a treat.

...you're not the only one who's worried. But covers usually can't be trusted, so I'm *fairly* confident that Rung will be fine. And he is James' fan character, so that probably gives him some plot armor. I hope!
Oracle_Aesir
Lets hope that Orion returning will lead to a proper death this time.....a a back door pilot for a Wreckers mini or something....

Most likely this.
YoungPrime
50 energon cubes says that Orion's traveling with the Dinobots!
grindcore138
Man, I bet Rung is really regretting joining the Lost Light, haha! Avoids millions of years of war then gets his arm cut off before he's even boarded, the Sparkeater going after him in issue 3 and now looking beat up with what looks like Skids pointing a gun at his head, poor guy.

Intriguing that Orion is back already, although I hope it is only an issue or two, I guess it was inevitable we'd see him again but I thought it would be a bit longer at least. Fan favourites, eh? If it's the Dinobots that'd be awesome.
Macross7
Do TPBs only have 6 issues in them? MTMTE 1-5 & Death of Prime. I don't buy them so not sure how many are in them.

Not always. From the trades of IDW's main G1 universe, I've seen as few as four and as many as seven per trade, not counting their big hardcover collections.
Mechafire
Quite excited for RID #6 after reading that.
ORIO
Damn. I thought prime leaving was great. Could've had him hiding on Earth. Would've set things in motion for the bots to return.

I love Prime, but I don't want him back already
Silk Spectre
Optimus Prime appearing already in the 6th issue? DO. NOT. WANT.

We've barely gotten into the story or the other 'bots in RID. Hopefully this is a temporary appearance and he gets ghost again by the end of it. Otherwise, any excitement I have for this series will drop significantly. I've been loving these two series because they're different, and it's refreshing that Prime and Megatron are absent.

Thankfully, there's still MTMTE....the fantastic series that it is.

He was gone for two/three issues now, and for some it was already way to long? I hoped he would be gone at least for a year, if not longer.

My I ask, what his presence adds to the stories, that couldn't be done without him?
ORIO
Agreed. I know Prime. I want to know other charterers too.
Anguirus
*Reads Pax is back already*

Meh...

*Reads that he's going after Shockwave*

Eeeee! Excited anyway. ESPECIALLY if Darth Crusher is right, and for my money there's a good chance he is.

A very decent semi-long-term situation would be Pax chafing under Grimlock's leadership. Nice reversal there.
Infosaur
Hmm, I actually am not surprised that Pax is back, but I would have thought they'd start a 3rd title (or limited series) Spotlight: Orion Pax for the summer.

I hope this doesn't mean they're running out of ideas for the RID sandbox already.
Silk Spectre
They've barely touched the surface with RID. MTME hit the ground running, but the nature of the story of RID is such that the build up is slower.

I'll just hold on to the hope that it's a temporary return. It's probably a fool's hope, but.....
shamanking282
I doubt that Pax will be on Cybertron, and I'm betting this will be a short thing before moving the plot back to Cybertron. I agree that he'll probably team up with the Dinobots, or he'll possibly find Impactor and Guzzle. That would be an interesting twist, if Barber ended up writing the Wreckers instead of Roberts.

I'm hoping that's what happens. This issue could be a "Meanwhile, a few light years away..." one-shot, and then we'll get back to the main storyline. The Orion Pax stuff will probably tie into the main story eventually, but I hope he doesn't hog the spotlight for more than an issue or two.

Which is why I was hoping for a 3rd title,,, at least a 1-3 issue limited series.
