    Hasbro done fucked up and sent it out with Goldbug.

    Only had a chance to read half of it before hand. But WOW. Lots of potential new repaints in this one. It was really hard to follow, though.

    It was probably always supposed to be like this and only got messed up because the Megatron and starscream toys got pushed back.

    Haven't opened mine yet, but might try to hold out for the retail release of issue 3 next week first.

    Any chance of a synopsis / outline as to what happens / who shows up? Won't be getting Goldbug for quite a bit and I'm curious. Much appreciated

    Damn, just read this with the SG Goldbug figure that arrived today.

    Do not mess with Goldbug.

    RIP Skywarp and Insecticons.

    Most of the setting of the issue is Goldbug and Jetfire torturing Starscream to get the information on Metroplex, with Jetfire clearly growing uncomfortable with it.

    Interspersed are flashbacks to Goldbug's (when he was Bumblebee) treatment under Optimus Prime along with him and Prowl planning their coup. Back in the present, Megatron sends in various Decepticons to try and rescue Starscream and Goldbug just mows through them all. Skywarp is killed and gets his head ripped off for example.

    Probably the most notable cameos are the Insecticons. Not just the classic trio (Shrapnel, Kickback, Bombshell) but Venom and Ransack also.

    Goldbug's characterization is pretty clear a massive superiority complex and he desperately wants to kill Megatron to prove himself.
