    Going off the recent trend, this Mini-series will probably be great while the main ongoings continue to be awful. :lol

    So let's speculate on the plot:
    • Galvatron goes back in time to give Megatron the Sports Almanac?
    • Starscream chases Gigawatt around on Arcee's hoverboard?
    • Doc Brown and Wheeljack switch bodies?

    Looking forward to this. I still need to get the TPB of the Ghostbusters crossover, and the Star Trek one.

    I'm going to read Gigawatt dialogue with Eric Stoltz voice in mind.

    Damnit! You just made it apparent to me that if we should have had a Trek Transformer!

    HEY HASBRO! Obviously you can still do this. So, put down the controller, get off the couch and get to it! Do your job you lousy hippies!

    The thing is they were going to do one but a fight broke out over weather to do T. Max or shuttle craft Sopk. The was name calling, papers thrown desks flipped. Mark punched John in the throat. The whole thing was canceled after that.

    I didn’t see the part in the press release where they mentioned it would be a Walmart exclusive on the day of release, which may or may not be the day listed, and that the first printing would be limited to 1,985 copies.

    You\'re telling me, you built a Transformer out of a DeLorean?

    Yay! Classic characters. That's something we never get in any other crossover. Those are always jam packed with rarely featured characters from late G1, Beast Wars and the UT.

    Only just noticed that this is being written by Cavan Scott, who is a very prolific Doctor Who writer, and a rather good one at that. He oversaw the Forge arc, a very popular storyline from the audio dramas. Here’s hoping this is just as good. If nothing else, it shows he knows his way around a good time travel story.

    Always kind of weird when a big name from one franchise you love makes the jump to another franchise you love.

    I really really hope part of the story includes the Time Train also transforming...because I will go to my grave wanting a retool of ER Astrotrain.

    Why would an 80s nostalgia bait crossover have characters from the 90s or 2000s?

    Licensing for Trek stuff is a nightmare from what I have heard.

    People also gotta ask themselves what role Beast Wars of all things would have a in a BttF crossover.

    With Kingdom coming, there's going to be a plethora of beast modes to play with. At which point I could easily see Jurassic Park, Jaws, Godzilla, Kong...etc...style crossovers that'd fit with BW.

    You do know that Back to the Future is about time travel right?

    We're like 4 months away from a BW revival that'll likely last past 2021. Are we gonna spend all of that time complaining that we're still not getting enough other continuities?
