    Wow, now that's how you portray the mind of a combiner.

    Wow I am loving that two page spread. This is the kind of characterization I wanted to see in Combiner Wars.

    Oh sheesh, y'all, it's happening! Really love the look inside Bruticus's mind, I wish we'd gotten more of this in Combiner Wars showing Defensor's, Menasor's, etc. mental inner-workings.
    So Blast Off is the only one trying to keep everyone focused and in control of Bruticus, Swindle's freaking the fuck out about being sort-of alive, Onslaught's distracted trying to extract Swindle's memories... Leaving Brawl and Vortex as Bruticus's dominant personalities.
    Uh-oh, spaghetti-Os!

    Maybe if the show was on TV and had 20 or 30 episodes, but with a short running time and limited episodes, we were never gonna get this.

    I was referring to the Combiner Wars story in the comics, not the Machinima show.

    Oh, my mistake, but we did get a look inside of a combiners mind near the end of the event with Optimus Maximus.

    Getting some Steven Universe vibes from the way they are doing the Combiner's mindscape. Not a bad thing. Anyways I'm sure this will all work out well.

    So Victorion is on earth, Superion can't be formed any more, Menasor is imprisoned and can't win a fight, Devastator is imprisoned and untrustworthy, and Defensor should be on his way back to the Lost Light. Yeah, I don't think there are any ready counters for Bruticus rampage.

    But I can see Windblade or Chromia getting blackmail material for Starscream out of this.

    Devastator isn't imprisoned, Starscream's been using him for several things like guarding the Enigma and striking back against the Decepticons during their taking the space bridge.

    Thought I was a flashback to the CW issue when we saw the Optimus Prime combiner

    That's right. He's just being kept on a shorter leash after that last rampage of his. Wonder if we'll end up seeing a homage to Bruticus's first apperance in the G1 Cartoon, where he beat Devastator. I can see it going down with Devastator having the advantage at first, then Bruticus components mentally come together, and turn it around be being a more skilled fighter.

    Yeah, they can't guard that Enigma for squat, so I guess they'll be stealing it at least 5 more times for Predaking, Abominous, Paranacon, those Train bots and Liokaiser.

    Since Scattershot is still on Cybertron (as far as we know), maybe they'll bring in Betatron.

    I was already all in on this book, but these pages really cement what is great about it.
