Yeah, I love how they're apparently very popular and heroic bots..great running gag.

So when is this issue being released? Tomorrow? In two weeks?

Two weeks. Or at least that seems to be the standard lead-time for these iBooks previews.
Nope
I sense the return of Pharma. Or maybe not.
Secretcode
....Just read this.

Don't you dare do what I think you're about to do, IDW.

Don't you fucking dare.

I sence that we're going to find out what happened to Dominus.

I mean Tailgate has cybercrosis...and Dominus was the one who was looking for the cure.

Oh snap, I forgot all about that. All that was left in my mind is that he is missing, not what he was doing.
bossprime
I'm already excited.
QLRformer
Tailgate, don't worry, Ratchet can find a cure... we can rely on Ratchet to help, right?
Rotorstorm
Aww poor Tailgate

Glad we're back to this art style as well, last month's issue though having a good story, the artwork put me off a little, if only because Swerve and Tailgate were the same height as everyone else.
GFH
Gawd what a frikin soap opera.

Tailgate ;_; First Rewind, now you too...

According to Diamond we are getting both #17 of RID and MTMTE next week. I am sure it will change.
Murasame
I want it yesterday!

Didn't Roberts say that he hopes people forgive him for what he is doing to Ultra MAgnus?

Damn you roberts, not again. First you break my heart last issue and now this, the whole cast of RID I could cope with horrible things happening to them but I love these original nut job characters you have created, WHY must you do this?!!
Murasame
They can't just kill all the characters... they need cool ones to keep the comic going...
General Magnus
Ah finally the art is back to normal again.

Im more concerned on what is gonna happen to Tailgate

What do you mean? (Sorry, I seem to be missing whatever reference others may be getting. Please refresh my memory. ) It appears that Magnus just "floated" away somehow...but I'm not sure how.

Meanwhile, Tailgate is breaking my heart. ;_; But I have to think there's no way we're going to lose Tailgate right on top of the others we've already lost so recently. (I hope, I hope...) Tailgate's story arc is not yet complete- it's way too soon for him to just curl up and die.

I have no idea what's happening with/to Ultra Magnus, lol. Am I missing something obvious here?

Yeah I'm missing something here too.
PredaconElder
Clearly possession or else the theory that he is a Timelord is legit.

Well, we're not supposed to. Yet. He's, like, getting up fast and hovering to a shuttle then jumping ship.
BobbyKyra
I'm really impressed with this series. The writer does an amazing job to have you emotionally invest in almost every character and I return to the book each issue to just see what crazy stuff he has planned for that particular issue. I hope he stays on for a very long time.

Yeah, I got that part, but a couple of people in this thread seem to think they know what will happen / what's going on. I'm just wondering if it ties back to any of the million possible hints and clues Roberts leaves behind.

ULTRA MAGNUS IS TARN (just kidding)
GWolfv2
Mortality! Sweet, dramatic mortality! I love the idea that transformers live so long that they're only now hitting old age...and I laughed at the "full life" thing...he spent 6 million years barely conscious in a hole
Negativedark
I think it's obvious. Somewhere, someone is breaking the rules so badly that Magnus must rise and go forth the stop them, physical condition and state of spark be damned!

And now Tailgate? Man if this keeps up MTME won't have much of a cast before long.

Heh- I got the impression that Ratchet was referring to all the things Tailgate said he had done (which only Cyclonus knows is a lie) but yes, it did seem ironic to say that to someone who spent 6 million years stuck in a hole. XD

He means before the hole. Tailgate's lived more of a life during peacetime than any war-born robot.

As far as Ratchet knows. Don't forget only Cyclonus knows Tailgate's dirty little secret about not being in the Primal Vanguard.

I think there has been two theories on what could happen to ultra magnus circulated on the boards;

Theory 1
that the flashbacks of him dying and surviving mean he could a point one percent-er like overlord who obviously hasn't gone through that phase 6 exo-skeleton process though. this could be a happy scenario providing he doesn't go through too much of a drastic psychological change in this near death experience

Theory 2
I can't remember who exactly suggested this one or why they did but this is the one I fear this floating and sitting up fast could be a alluding to. the sparkeater used to float round like this and it was also once a living cybertronian at some point too. not much is known about how a cybertronian becomes one of these un-dead spark hungering things but this would be an extremely tragic way to find out
Digilaut
Oooooh ok..that could be interesting.

Went to TFWiki to check on the Sparkeater's article again. Just now noticed (as pointed out on the wiki) that Animus, the guy who is killed by the Sparkeater in the corridors, actually had a green spark as well. Probably won't be important, ever, but now we know he was probably a point one percenter?...Heh.
Wadeledge
OMG Tailgate. I want Roche's cover so bad because of all the sads it makes me feel!
MrAho
What does Tailgate's apparent aging say about the existence of Mortilus?
WilyMech
I don't think Ratchet can cure old age. Age is something that happens to everyone.
agp
I'd like to hear some more on people's theories of what the hell is going on with Magnus, because I haven't got a clue.

I think has to do with the flash backs. K-Cons were involved it has to do with mechs like Fulcrum. (Oh that means that Lost Light might meet the Scavengers finally) Back on track Ultra Magnus was having a series of flashbacks last issue and had something to do with that it just a theory.
edgs2099
I think Tyrest is the key. His face is blacked out in the one panel he is shown in, and the whole Tyrest gave UM everything he could want, and that UM regrets it.
agentSAP2006
Hmm. Old age. I honestly didn't expect that.

The thing is, it could totally happen!

I wonder if UM's floating has anything to do with the Galactic Council.
edgs2099
Tyrest split UM's spark into 9 shards and hid those shards in Cybertronian tech all over the galaxy. Every time UM dies, his zombified corpse must shamble (float) to another of the shards. He basically has like 9 extra guys.
shroobmaster
Boy does it feel good to have the usual delightful art back.
GFH
Agreed, I definitely missed the art.

I do have to wonder if what's going on with Magnus has something to do with the things Tyrest had to offer for him. Sounds spooky.
