Hmm.. I really wish they’d have used Strongarm in place of Chromia.
Really? Chromia has a history with Ironhide, so it will be cool to see them work together, but I see your point. But, well, toys.
I don't mind a bit of seriousness but I hope it never gets to previous levels, where things got so murky Starscream was more heroic than that slimy Optimus. I like my heroes to be heroic!
yeah they make the hard choices sometimes but one of the things that I disliked most about game of thrones was its a****le vs a****le tone. everyone that tried to be better got killed or corrupted. id like more a seasons 1-3 angel(buffy spinoff) tone, it captured the difference between what was acceptable and not perfectly.
A Cybertron that had never known war and is a center for galactic commerce? Sounds like a *cough* "Golden Age"!
Yeah, they mishandled Optimus in pretty much 95% of IDW and I don't know why. (Exception being Shadowplay.) but the Redemption of Starscream was one of the most epic takes on that character ever. Marghied Scott took that line about "pity the warrior with no one left to fight." And really ran with it.
No reason she can't show up later as a supporting character. Heck, I could already see her as a hero-worshiping fan-girl who idolizes Chromia. Chromia of course is a hard bitten noir veteran and has little time for a groupie.
These stories write themselves.
Considering Cybertonians are notoriously hard to kill by organic standards, (and we're talking murder, not homicide or manslaughter) this would maybe mean deliberate and premeditated.
So for the first time in "recorded memory" somebot intentionally permanently terminates another Cybertronian? (Or murders a Quintesson master? Oh, am I going to far?)
Could this be the beginning of an uprising?
As corny as it is, you need to see the TAAO Annual, with the "Christmas Story", it's a pretty good outline for where Scott was going with the character.
It's all about ego. Starscream thought being a Decepticon would bring him satisfaction, then becoming Megatron's lieutenant, then victory over the Autobots, the end of the war, ruler of Cybertron,,, etc etc etc
It didn't work, but when Windblade & Bumblebee's "ghost" began to reach out to him, he started "growing".
It really was a cool book. Nice to have a character actually "grow", even a "villain".
Damn, just noticed Starscream, Soundwave and Shockwave in alt mode. They look rad together.
What day does IDW Transformers comic arrive this month? My comic store, never seems to answer the damn phone & they missed all 3 of my gobots comics so id like to be on top of it.
Next week on Wednesday on the 13th March.
Oh, that Soundwave is a stretch. Lol.
If I had that as a toy in 1986 they'd be like, "transforms into a space ship!" And I'd be like, "suuuuure it does."
My poor comic dealer. I haven't seen him in months. I used to be there every other week but the last time I went it had been two months and he only had two book for me. Lol.
(IDW Ghostbusters & a Firefly based book, if anyone cares.) from 5 books a week to two books a month? Crazy.
Oh, my God, yes. I was in almost weakly during the tail end of idw v1, but I took a break after it was over to save money for the holidays and whatnot. I've hardly been back since.
