    A couple of things that dont sit well with me

    1: Getaway stated to Rodimus that Minumus/Magnus "lead them" to Luna one on purpose. Just one issue earlier, we were informed that the Magnus suit was working on autopilot as a response to "death/near-death".

    So are we to assume that regardless of the circumstances, Magnus was "meant" to lead them to Luna 1 and the Overlord event and subsequent autopilot was a coincidence. Not very convincing. In conversation between Tyrest and Minimus in the last issue; Tyrest never purposefully intended Magnus/Minimus to participate in Rodimus’s “quest”. In fact, it was his joining the quest and subsequent actions on the ship which caused Tyrest to strip Minimus of the Magnus armor…..

    …so how can this be by design if it is ….not by design ….yet still …according to plan?

    Perhaps the rest of this issue and the remaining part 5 will fill in this inconsistency. I have already assumed the “Tyrest is stark raving crazy” defense. I am simply saying that the story arc facts are not congealing.

    2: Titan Hunters story arc is now convoluted. This one may be a little easier to dismiss. Did the hunters once work for Megs and then were recruited by Tyrest? If so when? …and WHY?

    Dangit, the Fulcrum thumbnail got me all excited for nothing. :\ Will read review later, for fear of spoilers.

    Dammit! I was expecting Fulcrum too due to the thumbnail! No Scavengers for us yet...

    Yeah seriously, where are those guys. I liked where that part of the story was going then they went back to Lost Light and crew. Hopefully they swing back around to the DJD.

    EDIT: The Scavengers could do with their own series. Would be nice to follow a group of misfit Decepticons.

    On the news page, the thumbnail to the preview article is:
    [​IMG]

    Folks seem to be disappointed at the lack of Scavengers in the preview, but there's still room in the rest of the issue for a last-minute reveal.

    Early reviews suggest (but don't spoil :thumb ) great and terrifying things.

    Waiting for tomorrow with a mixture of excitement and cold, icy dread.
