    Have to admit some disappointment it wasn't Quintessons after all, although I suppose until we actually hold these issues in our hands, we don't know for sure...

    Holy Shit At Long Last....THE JUNKIONS!

    I can't believe IDW's been in business for over 11 years and only now they're showing up.

    well I am interested in seeing this new take on them, a lot more sinister this times around.

    They already appeared a fair bit in Monstrosity and Primacy.

    There were a couple as background characters in Death of Optimus Prime and early RID issues. Maybe MTMTE as well.

    Kei's art is so expressive and distinct, I love it.

    Junkions!

    Junkion's, now that is a surprise.

    Wonder how they'll be portrayed here.

    If the Junkions are obsessed with Earth Television, I really hope Thundercracker becomes their Ambassador.

    I'm betting the discovery is that they have a pile of dead bodies, which they use for spare parts.

    Man, that's some of the best drawn robots I've seen in a while. I'm glad it's Junkions instead of jumping to Quintessons right off the bat, though I'm sure we'll get some more Quint hints along the way.

    You'd think the Junkions would've appeared in TAAO because isn't Junkion technically a Cybertronian a colony?

    Wouldn't be surprised if there was a James Roberts tale of a Titan accidentally purging its colonists on a garbage heap.

    Ooof. Painful bait and switch with the Quint ship, but this is fine by me I\'ve wanted the Junkions to take centre stage for a long time, and I'm still certain that James is slooowly but surely building to a Quintesson confrontation at some point in the future.
