    Yep. I think she's been part of Swindle's crew for a few issues, at least.

    You know, I'm not a huge fan of this series in general, but it has been fantastic at bringing in obscure characters, and actually giving them characterization, however briefly.

    Don't take focus away from Roughstuff!! :) 

    I'm loving that the Micromasters are normal size in this series.

    Among others, Roughstuff, Battle Patrol Team, and in Escape, Mudslinger have been great highlights for me.

    Ikr, pretty cool stuff. Even if some of the writing and art is meh at times, the creative direction and use of characters (especially obscure characters) is really cool to see.

    Okay so here the art is decent, it’s clean (without being sterile like in MLP), it’s detailed, it’s interesting to look at. The character models are new with obvious homages, but are just different, not bad or wrong. Story and characterisation holds up in these three pages. There’s actually action and things happening here. And I like that the Mecannibals make a cameo.

    My personal preference though is that the Dynobots have Cybertronian vehicle modes like in The War Within and only gain their dinosaur modes when they reach Earth. But eh. We will see how their dinosaur modes are explained here.

    Nice! I'm loving the opening pages - when this series was announced, I thought to myself "if it starts with Grimlock slicing open some monster with his sword, then it's going to be good". And here we go, exactly what I wanted on page one :D 

    I'm also loving the marvel reference to the mecannibals. Steve Orlando has clearly done his research.

    So I'm guessing this story doesn't take place in the main continuity?

    I didn’t even know mecannibals were a thing from the Marvel G1 era. Almost thought they were original to this story.
