    Sorry, but literally no element of the upcoming toy matches the MTMTE design...are we seeing different images? :eek: 

    (I'm still going to get it as it does look like the best voyager-sized representation of Megatron ;)  )

    So yeah, sign me up for a more accurate, 3rd party one. MMC, get on it!!

    Ravage isn't going to die, he's got a figure coming out.

    That didn't save Trailcutter.

    my thoughts as well



    couple ideas/theories I had

    the Choom sound could be from one of the cannons on the base, possibly fired by Whirl, (no shield now after all) but rather unlikely.

    Nightbeat and Rung

    Best guess is tarn and overlord turn on EACH other, vying for who gets to take him out. but really hoping its nickel and Deathsauras getting a lil revenge on them


    K, I haven't seen it posted, but I know somebody must have said that the organics in the Necrobots Dome, are going to have something to do with the Headmasters, some how. So maybe something Nightbeat and Rung find activate/or will be used by them for the upcoming Titans arc?

    Believe me, I'd love more than anything for Skids to be okay. But unfortunately it's been established that the statues switch off when the person dies.

    Skids can still come back to life, or you remember what is the appearance of your Holomatter?

    No. Skids is gone. When his statue disappeared it means a mech died and Brainstorm noted it. The Doctor is more due to the fact that James Roberts is a big fan of Dr. Who than the fact Skids has a Gallifreyan-esque quality to him in regeneration.

    Makes sense. Maybe the power boost is more of a power transfer, and drains faster when there are more bodies to support.

    I want that as a print. I'm very fond of the angry autobot symbol.

    i gotta say....22 pages in and no felix....i....i was kinda looking forward to his insanity.

    but reading the issue i see a lack of 'happy' moments that trigger him so i'm not entirely shocked by his absence.

    Crap you're right, went back to the Necrobot issue to figure out if they said anything.

    Damn, it's been a good run Skids.

    A *super* nice touch that I didn't notice before:

    On Page 18, Rodimus *salutes* Megatron and says, "Your crew, reporting for duty."

    No more vying for power or "I should be the leader" or "why is he here?". For a guy like Rodimus that's likely pretty huge.

    That was cool, but let's remind ourselves Rodimus had an equally important character change at the end of season 1, which was dropped in season 2. :p

    To which are you refering? The vote which Optimus had a go at him for? Or are you referring to him sulking at Megatron getting his job?

    Oh hey!

    Maybe Tailgate recovered because no-one used the power while he was out, and when it wore off them it returned to him and he woke up.


    Meanwhile, Skids was supercharging a team in a fight.



    I think part of it is also, as fed up as Ravage is with Megatron, he'd still rather go down fighting.

    That full-spread of Megatron is probably the most epic page of season 2.

    This is Megatron, the guy that looked an eldritch abomination (the Deceptigod) in the face and defeated it. Surely he can beat Tarn.

    Wait a minute, isn't it the Necrobot the one who turns off the statues when someone dies? Isn't the Necrobot dead?

    If so, what gives?
