    Cliffjumper is most likely not dead. The last time we saw Deathsaurus he was comatose. The fact that he's saying "again" probably means this is a dream and he's been killing Cliffjumper over and over again in his dreams.

    Well, at least I hope so.

    So Crasher\'s now pink? Also, Cliffjumper has to come back. They wouldn\'t have given him a story in Galaxies if they were going to kill him off like he was nothing.

    Why is Cliffjumper having such a bad fate everywhere

    Edit: I just realized that the bot said again, so as it was pointed out before, probably a dream happening over and over again.

    I hope one day to be able to work on a Transformers show so Cliffjumper can be one of the only bots to actually live.

    At first I was like "WTF the Insecticons killed Cliffjumper" but then I realized those are Deszaras' arms. You can also see the alien world in the background where Cliffjumper seriously injured him. He's locked in a dream.

    This is a joke right?

    Seriously, that has to be a fucking joke.

    He was the only good Galaxies character.

    EDIT: Wait, no, that has got to be Deathsaurus fantasizing about killing Cliffjumper over and over again, which is much cooler.

    Never did like Cliffjumper, so his recent deaths have provided me with much amusement.

    Okay I guess it really is a dream repeating because they are on the bat planet like @Treadshot 2.0 pointed out

    Huh, if that’s the case then I honestly never noticed. Maybe because the characters in Milne’s work have so much detail in them, the lack of backgrounds are less noticeable.

    However in this new Beast Wars comic, I did immediately notice the lack of backgrounds. Maybe because the characters are in a simpler style. I don’t dislike this art but the lack of backgrounds did make the panels look empty and rushed at times to me. (Or maybe it was a conscious choice, the original cartoon didn’t have much going on in terms of backgrounds either. Okay I’m not being serious just now)

    To clarify: I wasn't saying Milne doesn't do backgrounds full stop, but he tends to do strong establishing shots (The grand opening of Swerve's bar immediately springs to mind) and if the background isn't important, he tends to replace it with a gradient or a white void, particularly in close-ups. He typically made it clear where they were spatially right out of the gate and then focused on the characters themselves from there on out.

    The guy who wrote Cliffjumper to be so important in Galaxies is probably pissed now...
    On that cover, how is Starscream leaning to Megatron\'s ear? Did he first remove one of the tank treads from his back? :D

    Gags are supposed to be humorous though. This is about as funny as Cy-Kill always showing up to be killed.

    Brainstorm was a good prominent character in MTMTE and Lost Light, so you got that going for you.

    I'm saying he doesn't have ears. I'm not saying he doesn't have audio sensors.

    Ears. These things.

    Great.
    He's not shown to have human-like ears does he?
