I was excited about Volume 1, though I thought that story arc was kind if so-so. Volume 2 though with the return to their take on Cybertron, and having Shockwave as the main antagonist really made me take notice. The ongoing had possibilities such as featuring Sunstorm and introducing a plot thread with the female Autobots, but then you know what happened. I think I mentioned this before in this thread, the biggest shame was knocking out any excitement I could have had for IDW, think they'd probably fizzle out just as quickly. Damn shame, things like the lead-up to Lost Light and a post-war Cybertron would have been perfect timing for me. Thank goodness I caught some of that before that continuity ended.
