Transformers-Robots-in-Disguise-18-1
Newsarama has posted the full preview for next week's Robots in Disguise issue #18! The battle for Cybertron is over and the planet has a new leader! Bumblebee and the others are faced with a simple choice - to stay and renounce their alleigence to their factions, or to leave Iacon for the wilderness! Who will stay and who will depart on this, the second exodus? Check out the preview to get a taste of what is in store and then pick up the full issue next Wednesday!

Also - check out the retailer incentive cover (shown on the inside front cover) for a peak at a possible redeco of the upcoming Generations Deluxe IDW Bumblebee!

I think the Constructions either want to come along, or want Prowl to stay.

And I do need a Goldbug in my collection, so yay.

The thought did occur to me that they want to stick with Prowl so that they can continue to combine... of course, I can't really see Prowl or the other Autobots going for that. Hmm.

You know given how much emphasis on "METALHAWK IS DEAD" I'm betting that Shockwave will use ore-14 to somehow revive him so that he could expose Starscream to the Nails and have everything crush down so that he can take over Cybertron or something.

Doesn't strike me as a Shockwave's style. I think whose in charge of a city full of space hobos is well beneath notice at this point. Just me, though. Could be wrong.

The RI covers are making me think that the Generations Deluxes post Wave 2 for Thrilling 30 will continue to pack in IDW comics. Goldbug confirmed?
Mechafire
Didn't BBTS list a Generations Goldbug or something?

I'd say its pretty likely.

Starscream's next act will obviously be Metalhawk's cremation.

Well, I'm skipping the IDW Bumblebee figure now.

Don't have a Goldbug.

Aw man, I was hoping it was going to be a G1 Knockout

Yeah, I think the Constructions my have bonded with Prowl over their hatred of Spike Witwicky.

It would be neat to see the Constructicons join the Autobots, pehaps get into their individual characters if possible. Also, I find it strange that Bumblebee may turn out to become Goldbug when Goldbug already exists. Either the throttlebots will show up, or maybe Barber is making it so that Spotlight Metroplex will be set in the future.

Kinda disappointed that Bumblebee is getting redecoed into Goldbug and not a new character, but I guess I can deal with it. Makes Bumblebee a very easy pass.

"We share a special bond with you, Prowl!"
"Hell no, I hate you guys. Get away from me."
"But Prowl, don't you see? We're connected!"

Seeing as how Prowl points out what horrible beings the Constructicons are and they show no regret over it whatsoever, I really can't see them actually joining the Autobots just like that. Maybe they'll still go along with them, depending on how this plays out, but I doubt they'll swap their Decepticon symbols for Autobot ones.

They should have killed BEE....

And what makes you think Hasbro would have allowed that? They didn't let Costa do so.

Just rename them Stalker-cons.

The Autobots should have just blamed everything on Bee and Prowl. That would have been the honest way.

So pretty much betraying them? I don't think you simply drop support of your fellow soldiers, especially after millions of years fighting together, especially like this... :-/


This issue looks interesting. Dig the art.

Kind of disappointed that the deluxe Bumblebee looks like it's going to be repainted/remolded into Goldbug. An obvious pick, but seeing what they've done with remolding the last couple of years, they could have done so much more with this mold....

In that sense, then the Autobots should be blaming themselves. Because they all voted to make Bumblebee their leader three years ago on Earth and who continue, to this day, allow him to continue to lead like he is at all qualified for the job.

FLATLINE! Yay! Toy please Hasbro!

I get feeling the Constructicons like Prowl better than some of the Autobots.

I think the Constructicons just realized that they had been used as well. It was theme when the Devastator had his mind meld with Prowl that he was tired of being used.
