    Imagine still being pissed about windblade such that it blinds you to being excited about the return of Milne

    Or the return of Road Rage for that matter.

    I mean most of the conversation in this thread shows she does not get a pass for it. In fact you could easily argue that Windblade's contention is far more then Drift's, because Drift's nearly completely disappeared once MTMTE began and his personality got a complete overhaul, but Windblade was introduced 5 years ago and her appearance still sparks arguments in every single thread ever. Drift has also appeared in every single continuity that Windblade has, bar the terrible Prime Wars cartoon, but people don't really react to him showing up anymore.

    That being said, OG Drift will always be far more eye-roll worthy. His original story was the most generic OC backstory you could ever dream of.

    Same, it's fun learning about characters I never knew existed. I'm curious how Ruckley even found out about the character, since her masterpiece bio seems like a perfect fit for issue 12's synopsis.

    IDW should hire Milne to draw Windblade. Every cover and its interiors can be drawn by other artists, but Windblade will be drawn only by Milne.

    Ah yes, a reminder of "even though we're starting a new continuity, we can never truly escape our predecessor"

    I do have to wonder where this continuity is heading. It’s just sort of stumbling through right now without any sense of direction or purpose.

    Other readers are making it sound better than it actually is in discussions but to me, the writing, characterisation and artwork are poor. I wouldn’t mind if it was a mini-series for the main idw continuity but it’s an entire new continuity.

    Just integrate Go bots. That'd be different.

    That’s kind of strange. You’d think they’d want the cover design to match whatever the interior art is gonna be...

    Is there the one cover for TF 84? The solicit says CVR A so I would think there is a B or an RI.

    That A cover is nice, I might just stick with that anyway.

    Better would equal the quality we came to expect from IDW1. This is far from that quality.
