    Maybe this thread should be closed now? The OP’s question was answered early on, and everything that followed could easily fit into the “dumbest shit of IDW” thread.

    Why should it be closed? Have we heard every opinion? Have we been inundated with MTMTE sequel wishlists including such Tumblr gems as "Are Percy and Mainframe fucking now or what?" Did the OP themselves ask the thread to be closed? No? Then yeah, you don't get to arbitrarily choose when a conversation is over, LEAST of all if the conversation is heading somewhere you don't like.

    The long awaited sequel to Lost Light!

    "Who are you?"

    "I'm Megatron"

    "Megatron who?"

    Ghost of Damus manifests and watches in the distance

    "Megatron of Tarn."

    Love that the regular contingent of carrion eaters have popped up yet again for their communal rendition of selective outrage in a thread only tangentially related. Watch how quickly they shit the bed when someone brings up furman's historic transphobia and misogyny (I mean if tailgate is legible as a human child then arcee is just as legible as a trans woman right?) I'd have some respect if there was a philosophical through line to this, but it's so transparently culture war agitprop.

    I don't think a sequel series would work; it ended in just the right place.

    What I'd prefer is Roberts back writing a book with a slightly different focus – a smaller cast of characters, a different spin on the franchise. 80% of the pleasure would be in the series itself, and 20% from witnessing certain TFW board members foaming white hot foam from their eyes and fingers because their years of pungent criticisms have been completely overlooked by the commisioning editors.

    You're right, this thread isn't the place for these criticisms. Especially since there's already an active thread right now full of cogent arguments breaking down people's grievances with IDW1.

    Although you might be disappointed that the vast majority of those grievances have little or nothing to do with your perceived "culture war", you might want to take the time to actually read through it and keep your white knighting over there. Food for thought. ;)

    I don't think there will ever be one, not because I'm a Roberts hater. I'm not sure there is appetite for it. The end of IDW1 and LL was such a mess, I can barely remember what happened enough to want a sequel to any of it.

    Now, if they could engineer Rodimus waking up Dallas style around Dark Cybertron, and the writing team coming up with a completely different sequel (with no AutoMegs, excessive "coupling" and LOOK GORE!!!), I'd be up for that. Precluding that point I thought MTMTE was pretty tight and felt like a fun Transformer adventure.

    See the problem with that statement is not that it is against the rules it is that one should exhibit some decency and not just be negative for no real reason. It's like going on a bayformers post and just saying "F*ck Michael Bay" (I don't like bayformers, but I wouldn't do that). That's not productive for anyone, it doesn't convince anyone of your argument, and it doesn't take into consideration anyone else's feelings on the thing that you are just shitting on. That's all they did at first--shit on the series. There was nothing useful and, in fact, the post wasn't even relevant to the OP's original question. He literally saw this and felt the need to hate on the series that someone was clearly excited and interested in because he himself dislikes it. I had no problem with the criticism he gave later, even though I don't really think it is relevant to the OP's question--clearly, they wanted more of the series.

    Also, do we really think that James Roberts intentionally wrote a paedophilic relationship? I find that doubtful because to me his politics put him starkly in opposition to that, but of course we could never know and I don't want to argue about politics on TFW. Personally, I'm reading through all of IDW and once I get to MTMTE I'm gonna look at their relationships and portrayals more closely.

    From what I've read recently, Roberts had a lot planned for LL/MTMTE but it was canned alongside the death of IDW 1.

    Technically correct, but a better way to put it is Unicron #6 is the ending, the epilogue for the entire IDW1 story is Optimus Prime #25, and at an unknown time in the future (implied to be very long after LL #24 and OP #25) concluding the story of the Lost Light Crew.

    Yeah how dare I notice the history of posters around here. Absolute hypocrisy, better think on my sins about it.
