    what are the hopes of some for the upcoming comic "How to Ride A Dinobot", based on the cartoons shorts "how to train your dinobot" , which were to promote AOE.

    i liked the shorts and think the comic will be both cool and funny. while it is based on the movie, the cover shows some stuff that wasnt, like hound paired with slash. what i would love to see is ratchet paired with snarl and brains paired with slog, can u imagine :) 

    so, what are other's thought and hopes for it one comic or a series. below are links to the shorts and the comic cover that was revealed.

    what, the animated shorts and the comic seem to take place in an alternate version of AOE, and since ratchet was in it, why not include him to?

    This looks adorable! I really liked those shorts(possibly more than the actual film) so I would love to see more of them.

    It's pretty much going to be exactly like the shorts, only with Hound added I presume.

    Maybe the Dinobots will get a bit of personality.

    They get a motion comic with voice acting based on this.

    me and a friend were talking this over at work and he agrees, since slash is there, it is definitely an expanded/alternate version of AOE so there is no reason that ratchet, brains, slog and snarl couldnt be in it. point, me. your move. lol

    It's quite possible - likely, even - that this issue was a promotional-only release, like this IDW Beast Hunters issue that was released only with with the purchase of toys in Malaysia.

    I'll be very surprised at this point if this gets a release at regular comic retail, since we've seen solicits up to October and there's no sign of it.

    Sorry, were you talking to me? I forgot this thread was still a thing. Unless your friend is John Barber and you work at IDW, I'd hold fire on chalking up that point just yet champ. If the comic comes out and Ratchet's in it and going all lone ranger on a Dinobot instead of being a melted head, don't worry, you can have all the marbles ;)

    See my post above. This is very likely a promotional comic with no mass-retail release, I'm afraid.

    I dont give a flying frag, as long as its good and I can get my hands on one. Of course I would prefer a series. I dont see why not, the movies already out, as are the figures, so what is there to promote. Maybe they just saw that it is something the fans would enjoy

    What I'm saying is that it's probably already been released, at the Italian museum event that the cover was revealed in connection with. If you're desperate to get hold of it, I'd go have a look around eBay Italy.
