    I was hoping Zama would draw this whole arc, but the one good thing that came out of 4 million artists doing OP issue 11 was that Durocher\'s line-art is still great and versitle.

    Given the Unicron 0 preview
    revealed Bumblebee is coming back
    , my bet is on
    Bumblebee

    That character is also shown on the cover, for whatever little that is worth.

    Appears to be Ratchet being held back by Drift.

    "Spotlight" in this context would most likely just be part of the solicitation marketing jargon, they're just highlighting a special release.

    I'm guessing Starscream, based on the cover.

    Looks like Lost Light’s moving towards another finale, but will it be the finale of season 3, or the finale of Lost Light? With rumours of a reboot on the horizon, and Roberts being as vague and cryptic as ever, only time will tell.

    And not a single non-TF Hasbro title listed, aside from the Jem and Strike Force TPBs. It’s not looking good for the Hasbroverse. Shame, IDW was just beginning to work out how to handle a shared universe.

    Yeah, but what if the Lost Light continues in the current Universe, because of the Quantum Engines letting them be untouched of everything else that happens to the universe, effectively creating yet another parallel universe (or alternatively a wizard did it) and then they can have the regular Transformers book with everyone and have regular stories and then the Lost Light which can also feature every character, but written by James Roberts. That would be cool. The other book can be in the Hasbroverse and crossover ridden to the max and Lost Light is on it's own terms, just like the IDW books were in the past.

    LL was still on it's own in the Hasbroverse,I don't get why people keep saying the Hasbroverse ruined LL when it's been left alone becusce the characters are on the far side of the space.

    Still, I'm guessing there's gonna be a smaller cast of characters. Judging by the cover they'd focus on whatever mayhem Impactor's gonna start and on how Springer will respond in kind. So essentially "Spotlight: Springer + Impactor!" :D
