    Rachet has trouble with goodbyes. Those were all the last times he saw Roller (before he disappeared), Pharma (before leaving for Earth originally) and Hunter (before being kidnapped, tortured and experimented on by Bombshell) and he didn't actually say "goodbye" to any of them so I guess that's gonna play an important part of the story. Could be when he sets off to find Drift? This issue's either going to be heartwarming or heartbreaking. Or both.

    Man, Hunter didn't even get to go home one last time :( . I like how they used the -Ations style speech bubbles for that bit.

    Nope nope nope.

    Still not going to believe that Hunter's dead. Nope.

    I'm sticking with my headcannon thank you very much. I don't need any more feels punching this week.

    We really are getting two issues of MTMTE this month? Huzzah!

    The bit about Mirage opening a bar in RID #40 makes a bit more sense now, and I suspect that this is going to be the issue where Ratchet leaves to go find Drift. That will make it a bit easier to work the precise position the events in Empire of Stone and TF: No Subtitle in the chronology.

    TFTM reference? Perhaps?

    I totally forgot that Hunter is a corpse.

    Then again, this is a comic book. Once a reason for him to be around is found, he'll be alive again.

    Can't wait for this issue, it should be great, think I'll save this for the plane.

    Love how they've got Swerve swearing under his breath :lol

    Ratchet has trouble saying goodbye huh? Oh man I'm already prepared for a whole bunch of feels.

    Tailgate finally has a hover board. I'm starting to see that Back to Future had a huge impact on him. :lolol

    Okay now the Bar makes sense. Mirage well was being Mirage and was being a dick. I think Swerve had hand having Mirage being sent back. It makes me want to see him back on the Lost Light.

    Siren, Nightbeat, and Hosehead - all three 1988 Autobot Headmasters (though not in this continuity) on-panel together!

    I saw that too! I love those guys.

    Ratchet doesn't know how to say goodbye?

    :(  Ratchet's flashbacks, the stuff of emotion. Everyone he didn't say goodbye to he ended up never getting the chance again.

    Tailgate REALLY dug BTTF2 I guess. Not that I or anyone here could probably relate to watching a media and immediately being compelled to own toys from it. ;) 

    Didn't he just get back from Drift's miniseries, too?

    No, he became a raging psychopath because of what happened on Delphi. And he only left because Ratchet left for Earth. Both of them were ordered to leave by Prowl.

    Prowl just cna't get a break.

    Unless this is where he leaves to take part in said miniseries. It's not clear where in continuity that happens IIRC.

    Good point.

    Also, I just realised Tailgate's holding a fishing rod. Perhaps an homage to young Daniel in his white and cyan-blue (Tailgate's colours) jumpsuit hopping on his hoverboard after fishing?

    I'd bet, given the page before.
