    I saw no thread for this issue yet.

    I was pretty excited waiting for this series to come out. I was pretty happy with issue 1.
    I liked the art, for the most part it is very clear. Just a few panels where there is a bit too much going on.

    I think there are a lot of interesting concepts introduced here, so I am eager to see how the series progresses.
    -The Predacons meant to be extinct and we know they are coming in Beast Hunters. Interesting mystery with how they are present
    -Ultra Magnus and Swoop captured and being prepared to be reforged.
    -Grimlock and The Din
    -Ser-Ket and The Forged, who are they.

    It is a very quick read, but I enjoyed it.

    Anyone else read it yet ?

    Read it a little while ago... It was an OK issue. It was interesting that Sludge made an appearance, considering it was supposed to follow from Fall of Cybertron and Sludge was (presumably) dead, or at the very least, never made into a dinobot there.

    Considering the miniseries is being written by some of the TF: Prime staff writers, and that Season 3 was probably in the bag writingwise when they started writing this, I imagine there's a reason.

    Reforging eh?

    Looks like my prediction that the Dinobots are the Predacons may be right afterall.

    Does Impactor ever appear in-person or was he just a name-drop?

    Just a name-drop.

    Anyway, I enjoyed this. Really like a lot of the stuff they're playing around with here.

    Hopefully an issue will explain why Sludge is alive.

    Fun little read. Plan on picking up the rest of the series.

    I definitely like this Ser-ket character.

    I think it's pretty funny that Earth's prehistoric creatures were once thought of as dragons, and then Cybertron's prehistoric? creatures are actual dragons.

    A very swift and garbagy read. I feel ripped off.

    It was all right. I'll bite on number 2, that will decide whether I go ahead and finish the series.

    Guess I'm just hungry for more Prime.

    for a 4 issues limited series to sorta fit together between 2 seasons of an animated show, i felt it did it's job. definitely not great writing, went incredibly quickly, but still fun dino smashing action. only thing that bugs me is Slug, it's a terrible name. He'll always be Slag to me.

    I'm really glad to hear a new name. We heard of Ser-Ket via solicitations for RotD #4, but Backbite was entirely new, and welcomed.

    EDIT: Just for clarity, I can't post pics here of Ser-Ket or Backbite yet, can I? I got some screen grabs.

    I'm suspecting the fact that the Predacons are all dragons, with Earth having dragon myths, is deliberate and will come up again in Season 3.
