    Ok I kinda like the joke at the expense of a toy that IRL mine lasted an afternoon before crumbling.

    Not sold on that grimlock art tho. The Humans are fine but Grim himself... yikes.

    They don't do trades for each series anymore, only the omnibus hardcovers. (Not sure if that's what you meant.)

    Yeah, right, it slipped my mind. I have the first three volumes. I'll wait with reading it until I get the hardcover it will be included in then :)  Thanks for reminding me.

    Everyone is talking about Octopunch and Electro, but nobody is talking about the lore drop, Blurr was supposed to rule Velocitron, but left and promptly replaced by Roadrocket, a rather interesting situation...

    Aaaaaaand done.
    I checked out on “Proletariat”.

    Because that’s what warring alien beings fight over. Human polititical systems.

    Especially when anybody with half a brain knows that Decepticons are Kraterocratic.

    That Thunderclash design is interesting. He has a roof on his chest... and another roof on his back? Maybe from the upper deck of a Motormaster-style sleeper cab?

    I wonder if there's a chance he's based on an upcoming toy design. Goodness knows we're overdue for a modern Thunderclash figure.

    Oh hey, Pretenders!
    And Octopunch is in the forefront of this group, it\'s nice to see him get some spotlight.
    He seems to have Submarauder & Skullgrin with him. If he was Bombburst then we\'d have the Masterforce trio assembled.

    We need to get toys of these. Circuit I'm particular. I don't know how they would adapt reaprouch the pretenders but they wouldn't be bad.

    The roof on the back is the roof of the roof.

    Proletariat is just a term for working class people as a group. The etymology goes back to ancient rome.

    Also is Mayhem even associated with the Decepticons at this point?

    That tiny little picture of Road Rocket has me hopeful that that is what his toy will look like in the Walmart Velocitron line.

    I hope so. I would even be okay with him not having his trailer; just give him his big honking turbine guns, & I'm good.

    Yeah, I’m not liking Grimlock’s design in this book either.

    mine looks just like this only one of the arms also came off. Such a shame I love the idea of the Laser rods but man who ever signed off on the gold should have been fired.

    Your statement pretty much confirms what I said. They are still using human political terminology which makes absolutely no sense to me.

    Also, you don’t have to be a Decepticon to follow your initial war machine programming. Then again, according to IDW, the Decepticons were the “oppressed“. :rolleyes:
