    Is it just me or does that shuttle remind anyone else of TR Sentinel Prime?

    \"Between the time when the oceans drank Iacon and the rise of the Decepticons, there was an age undreamed of. And unto this, Grimlock, destined to wear the jeweled crown of Primus upon a troubled brow. It is I, his chronicler, who alone can tell thee of his saga. Let me tell you of the days of high adventure!\"

    The Dungeons and Dragons cartoon from 1983 was technically an isekai. There's probably even earlier examples.

    This already looks miles more interesting than the ongoing IDW nonsense. Grimlock is finally acting like he should be, not the mute lovable big lug Roberts wrote him as.
    And I am overjoyed to see Mechannibals again, but also surprised... they even mention Master Mouth, but how? They appeared in Marvel comics first, so same as Circuit Breaker, aren't they Marvel property? EDIT: OK I forgot, they can do that unless the character appeared in another Marvel comic as well, like Death's Head or Circuit Breaker.

    What is with this recent trend to take decades (sometimes century) old story types and start calling them with anime/manga names? The whole "hero is transported to fantastic world" thing is literally more than 100 years old while anime only stated doing this in maybe the 80ies. Or you all forgot John Carter?

    Yes, and thank Primus for that...

    I find it annoying, frankly. Simply put, the Micromasters do not have enough detail when upscaled to regular size, and look... off. Power-Punch and Direct-Hit especially look weird with the toy accurate connector peg and hole on them. Also, it takes away from Micromaster's uniqueness that they are not tiny anymore. They could have been the new Minicons, a whole subspecies of Transformers, but both Barber and now Ruckley treated them as regular TFs, which is boring.

    Same with all the unique subgroups. I can’t stand how IDW just had a lot of them as regular ordinary cybertronians.

    Currently IDW 2 is still in it's beginning stages, the Autobot/Decepticon Civil war is just now beginning, characters who are full-sized rather than Micromaster-sized could very well downsize and become Micromasters in future plot points later down the line, same thing for other characters like Headmasters, Duocons, combiners, Power masters, etc.

    I forgot that the girl repaints of the military jet Minicon trio were in this comic series.

    The matches would be rigged and money would be betted on the outcomes.
