    They're donations from other bots, not from the dead bot themselves. Giving someone a vial of your inner most energon is a sign of respect.

    It\'s either a joke or its Rewind: he\'s not with Chromedome, he\'s old enough to have burned out and he\'s popular enough to have 5000 vials of innermost Energon devoted to him.

    Gorilla Is Optimus.

    Nah, it seems to be G10, as in Garrus 10. One can assume is a jail like Fortress Maximus' Garrus 9, for the vehicle, the guards, and the shackled psycho.

    There's a lot of questions to be asked from that one page...may this was done to generate even more hype for the issue.

    That's working for me. 8 days cannot come soon enough.

    I wonder how the crew will react to finding out their home planets have been destroyed?

    We’re not entirely sure. A lot of us are thinking it’s Bluestreak, but he got blown to bits.

    Where does Prowl have his bad eye, on his left or on his right?

    Rewind dying would be a very Roberts-y thing to happen at the end of the comic he was writing. The archivist, the chronicler, the editor.

    'course it's probably just Gears or someone :)

    Okay, getting kinda confused as to why everyone thinks it's Ratchet that died because of his grey disease. The Magnificence confirmed back in #23 that Ratchet turning gray was a slow acting teleportation.

    That said, it's definitely Thunderclash, seeing as he was established to have been slowly dying back in MTMTE.

    For those still curious, Roberts just confirmed for me on Twitter that this will NOT be a 40-page issue, and that the 24 page count is accurate.

    Such a shame. Going to miss this comic immensely.

    I'm honestly amazed that this is still being discussed. Bluestreak was confirmed to be alive by Roberts on Twitter several months ago. It's not Prowl. It's a coloring error.

    It's also *very* likely that Rewind isn't shown because he's filming the proceedings, and all of the dialogue points to this being Thunderclash (including the final words and his self-written epitaph).

    I somewhat considered that Rewind would be filming. That is probably Bluestreak and not Prowl. I'm not sure it's Thunderclash either since those personality ticks cured him of his terminal illness a long time ago. Maybe it is Roller, his circuit speeder habit finally catching up to him.

    Do you think though, that:
    Roller would have written his own epitaph saying “even in death he chose life?”

    Roller would have inspired 5000 other Transformers to donate their innermost energon?

    (Same reasons Ratchet is supremely, supremely unlikely...or any “main” character for that matter.)

    Why does Brainstorm have the timecase? That\'s pre-Roller and Thunderclash. Is this in the past when Rewind was dead and thats why he is missing?

    Maybe it was among the stuff of the dead. The ones who kept some of the briefcases were Censere and Megatron.

    @SHIELD Agent 47

    As Roberts just confirmed on Twitter that this *is* Prowl (what?!). I'm going to assume it's Functionist Prowl because that's the only way I can make sense of it, but I guess we'll see in the issue itself.

    I feel like we're supposed to infer this is some point much later in the future, from the presence of "Garrus-10" to replace Garrus-9 and the mention of the Luna 1 resettlement fund. This means it's probably after Unicron concludes, so this is pretty damning evidence Prowl makes it out of Unicron just fine.

    Also, good call on Rewind filming.

    Still gonna say it's Ratchet. "At his Phlegmatic best.."
    Phlegmatic = Unemotional, stolidly calm. Age related burnout. "Bugger". (seems an apt response for someone who sees the signs in others but misses them in himself)

    Seems too obvious, but sometimes a horse is just a horse.
