    Huh, no... ? But I guess I didn't get what you was trying to say about sequels and expectations then.



    @Mort: Oh yes.

    I see what you're doing, Nick.

    James scooped up all the C-and-D-listers from G1, so you're turning your butcher's knife on Beast Wars and Armada characters!

    Think you're so smart, dont'cha? You smug, sexy, Irish beast!

    Ya I agree on Guzzle he probly will get killed and already seeing those 2 issues hopefully it happens soon cuz he is getting annoying and his tank mode would be cool as a toy if it was better proportioned. Also omg Tidal Wave they need to make a toy of him now. I have the energon version of him and now I need to have me a whale/tank version of him lol

    Does anyone have a picture of Tidal Wave in robot and base mode? I'd really like to see exactly how he looks.

    Is this whole Carnivac and Springer thing supposed to also be an homage/nod/reference/etc to the UK comic series where the cover is the same two characters #203 (Time Wars)? Because I couldn't help but notice when I used TF Wiki to look up Carnivac that the same two are featured there. (No I've never read the issue, just seeing the photo on the TF Wiki page.)

    Or is this just massive coincidence???

    Got to say the moment i saw that the whale was Tidal Wave i got all misty eyed. The fact that my favourite Bot Roadbuster and my favourite Con Tidal Wave are in the same comic almost brought me to tears, i was so damn happy. Ive always wanted to see them in the same story and now my wish has finally been granted. :,)

    Also i can't wait to see his bot mode design, the next issue can't get here fast enough and i can't wait for Nick to release the designs of all the characters! :D

    I just managed to sit down and read this.

    Wow.

    Ok, first off, what a beautiful book. Roche's art takes a little bit different style in this series than in his previous IDW Transformers work, but it suits the tone of the series really well. Still identifiable as Roche art, but... dirtier. Harder used. The world of this book feels grimy and grey. Exactly like it's cast. Even the colors take on a muted, soul crushing inkiness. Absolutely love the visual storytelling going on here.

    After the grand, high speed action thriller take from LSOTW, I was surprised to see the radical change in tone in the first issue of Sins. But with issue 2, it becomes clearer what the creatives are up to here. The Wreckers are, even more so than usual, a cast of broken bots. Springer clearly traumatized by Garrus 9, Kup mind controlled and confronted with the horrors of his past, Impactor seemingly hungry for a fight at any cost. Even Roadbuster, who so compassionately sat with Springer for so long callously gives in to violence and torture, because that's WHO HE IS. Is it who needs to be? The series seems poised to ask that question of him and the others, and damn if it isn't mesmerizing.

    And don't even get me started on Guzzle. He hasn't gone off the deep end, he's dug an even deeper end. Yikes. The bit with Polar Claw (aww, one of my favorite Beast Wars toys. You'll be missed.) was brutality as an art form.

    Outcasts all (seriously, even IDW's Dinobots have more friends outside their circle than these guys), and their task to rescue the most hated man on Cybertron. Even Arcee, Prowl's closest "friend" is starting to see just what kind of dick he is. Her reaction to the controlled-Kup sequence was one of my favorite parts of the issue.

    Also, the Beast Wars love! Stampy, Claw Jaw, Polar Claw and Cybershark (or at least one of his bodies, he wasn't named in issue, I don't think?)! Also, Tidal Wave as a whale is inspired. Hasbro and the 3P's, get to designing, I wants a precious, if you'll pardon a moment of Gollum.

    In short, radically different from Last Stand, but playing with some of the similar themes, Sins is pulling an Empire Strikes Back. Darker and more introspective, at least so far. Good lord do I love this series already.

    I really loved the art and the colors really set the mood. I think my favorite moments in this book had to do with compassion Springer, Verity, stakeout, & Kup, really had some touching moments that I really enjoyed. I so misread what Guzzle was doing I thought it was spilling on his face after he bifurcated his enemy not doing what he did.

    How mush does the IDW staff know about Hasbro'so Prime Wars? We know it started with CW and next up is TR, but then is a currently unknown third and final part. Could Prime Wars part 3 be Beast Wars and IDW knows and is trying to make the introduction seem less forced?

    "But we're Autobots!"

    Haha.

    How being friends with Prowl works for you now, Arcee?

    Ditch him, girl. Everyone else already did, be a smart bot too.

    Nick Roche is a well-known fan of Marvel UK.

    So whatever the opposite of coincidence is? That's this.

    Springer and Carnivac had a lot more to do with each other than just sharing a cover in Marvel UK. They became friends there.

    Verity is dying most likely. Her talk of mortality is something that the Wreckers will never understand. I wonder what the rabbit's name is.

    Wow! They are owned by Hasbro I thought that maybe they could come up with a better name than that. Man I feel sorry the Rabbit, it proves that Bugs Bunny has the better agents then Stampy when it came Rascally Wabbit.
