As the title says, and boy has it been a wild but fun ride. Make no mistake, I've really, REALLY enjoyed this series. But Series just suffered a couple of pretty big pratfalls in the last couple issues. Despite having a few great moments, these were really frustrating for me to leave off on. So from a list of least offensive to worst, here are grievances so far. Oh yeah SPOILERS for those who haven't read yet. #1. The death of Ravage- This is really more of a personal thing as it was actually written well and least got the respect he deserved. I really enjoyed having the presence of a proper decepticon on board the lost light, one who was for the most part "friendly", and I always read him with his beast wars voice. So that plus the fact that he was the only beast transformer on board and my favorite cassette bot made him kind of special to me, so I was sad to see him go. But I admit it felt properly done. Unlike this next offender. #2. The death of Skids- Okay this is where the ranting starts properly. What pisses me off about this is the fact that he was an obscure character with a really strong stride in this comic. But then he's needed as a deus ex machina and oh suddenly releasing that energy means he almost dead- wait never-mind make that completely dead. The fact that he was so prominent and then just goes out with a whimper just frustrates me. And worst of all, it was just when I realized that skidsica was a legit thing. #3. The death of the ENTIRETY of the DJD (sans Nickel, thank goodness)- Considering how built up these comic specific characters have been it's really sad to see ALL of them die so soon. I know they've been around for a couple years now, but for me reading the comics all in one go it felt that way. Sure they were complete psychos and sure dying by Megatron's hand was EXTREMELY appropriate, but I still liked their threatening presence being felt in so many scenarios. So yeah, gonna miss this guys. If I wasn't trying to be so money conscious, I'd try and pick up all their mastermind creations toy releases. #4. Tarn's identity (HUGE SPOILER WARNING)- Okay lets get this straight first, I KNEW roller was probably gonna be a red herring. I knew Roberts probably was gonna make it a surprise instead. What I was HOPING was he would expect us to think that and make it Roller anyway. THAT would have been satisfying. Hell, establishing ANOTHER plausible character with for him to be would have been satisfying. But no. He's really just some random genericon who had like one line. All that built up tragedy at the thought of Optimus Prime's best friend becoming one of the most vile villains in all of transformers history, all of that thrown out the window so Roberts could go, "What a tweeest!" And in the end Tarn didn't even go out with a whimper- but with the sound of a whoopee cushion. #5. This is interruption of this DUMB story so we at Hasbro could bring you this way cooler story! Actually we've got TWO stories- Seriously Hasbro? You want to do this now? Right now? And last but certainly not least #6 Getaway. Just Getaway- Fuck this guy. Just- just fuck this guy alright. I'm seriously considering buying a titan's return Getaway figure just so I can melt I hate this guy so much right now. I mean he started out as a decent albeit somewhat creepy character, but I didn't think he was that bad. And then he along with MOST OF THE CREW FOR SOME REASON decide to fuck over their supposed friends. Look, you hate Megatron, I get it. That's normal. But his complete lack of regret and complete snarkishness in doing all this is making prowl look tame by comparison. Maybe I'm offended by him because he reminds me of real life people in today's political climate; I don't know. But seriously just fuck this guy. Anyways after all that I might as well acknowledge the few good things that happened recently. Like pretty much all the stuff with Megatron (especially the scene where he reunites with terminus), Nickel realizing the DJD are terrible, Deathsaurus having a heart, Overlord being Overlord- All good which is something I've come to expect. I just hope the comics in the future make up for all these missteps. I'm curious who else agrees and disagrees with me and what all you guy's thoughts are on the recent events so far.
