    Shadowplay starts here! MTMTE returns to the pre war era, and is Live now on Comixology!

    Quivering with excitement as I download it :D 

    EDIT: Now downloaded, and WOW! Fans of Chaos Theory will definitely NOT be disappointed! Roberts is recreating the world as we know it here!

    All the mentions of
    Roller
    had me in stitches!

    And as for the ending,
    well, I think we all knew it was coming, but it's still sad that it's now confirmed :(

    Poor Red. Whoever took that data slug is the one who killed him.

    I'm so glad
    that we finally found out what the Relinquishment clinic is. It's not what I expected, but is a very cool idea in a regime where your function is dictated by your form. Can certainly see why Data Slug for an Alt-mode Rewind would have been going there.

    I adored the interplay with Drift and Ratchet, good to see that their relationship goes back millions of years, and goes some way to explain why Ratchet goes so hard on Drift. Drift putting words into Ratchets mouth was hilarious :)

    It won't be Cyclonus that killed him.

    Totally agree. It seems like Cyclonus is being redeemed in MTMTE.

    Amazing. So, so full of goodness I'm gonna need to read it all again before really discussing it.

    When the only, only critique of the book I can make is I WANT ALL 3 PARTS OF THE STORY NOW DAMN IT! you know it is gold.

    A detective story, a huge swath of backstory, interesting (tragic) present day action, the crew being amazingly fun, Rodimus about to make a brash wrong move AGAIN... WOW.

    I loved the references to Roller. So the question is did Optimus name his drone-component after an old friend? Or did Roller get damaged at some point in the war and "grafted" to Optimus to keep him alive?


    -ZacWilliam, I like the relationships established here between Prime and Ratchet and Drift and still unnamed Senate Guy.

    I love the way
    Roller almost sounds like Orion Pax's nagging wife at the moment, as well as a good buddy. I get the feeling we're going to hear a lot of banter between them without ever actually seeing him. I also like how Ratchet knows Pax from the Acadamy of Science and Technology, so just for SMOG, he did do something else before he became Supercop!

    Ok, so after I sold my Battle Rollar, Roberts goes and makes Roller an actual character.


    Well crap, guess who's in the market for a new Battle Rollar.

    He appears to be missing his head, so... With this being MTMTE, who knows!

    Clinic is the TF version of Total Recal in a way the lowly can go and trade sparks with a better for a day. Try out a cool body temporarily. Apparently it lead to bad things.

    ZacWilliam, no Overlord. But Red Alert.

    Ebay:
    Has Proteus' Promise been outlined? All I've seen is that it refers to a certain number, and that in the first few pages, there was a flying billboard saying that they were at "50% and counting"

    Does it have something to do with population control? Like, as in that there are too many Cybertronians?
