Such good bots. Jumpstarters have no right to look so great. While I'm usually more into flyers and more colourful bots, I think I like Twintwist more nowadays. There's something really fun about his compact boxy alt mode. Quite what a tank with drills on it would be for is another matter. One for the ages. Weirdly Revolutionaries turned out to be pretty great. Revolution itself was tedious bobbins, as was First Strike, but Revolutionaries was a fun little team-up that told an effective story without too much bombast. Honestly I think if IDW had planned things better they could (and should) have centred the entire universe around it, and have all the solo franchise series orbiting it, like Avengers or Justice League. I dunno. IDW, like Dreamwave before them, have a strong case for remaining in control of the licence because Marvel would demand a lot more ownership and control than I think Hasbro would want to give up. Plus... there's been three attempts at carrying on the OG Marvel series story, and all have been a bit crap. Sorry, but I hate Regeneration One. Really hate it. I still kinda wonder if the deluxe Energon Monster won't just be a clear green Wingfinger. And yeah, I'd totally get one. Also I'm in the market for a Purple Paleotrex if anyone's looking to move one on? I was about to suggest DC pick it up, but then I remembered DC's penchant for rebooting the universe over and over again the moment they think people might be complaining... and no. No thanks. Also the prospect of having a Doctor Manhattan / Optimus Prime crossover team-up gives me the willies. I'm in two minds. On the one hand new hands and faceplates are definitely right up my street, and they're what I kinda wanted all along... but on the other I can't help but wonder if this isn't really worth the faff? Especially of fitting new hands. If the price is right (and it works with the Selects release) I might go in for it, but otherwise I dunno. MTMTE drew new people to the fandom. It created serious buzz outside the echo chamber, and that is always, always a good thing. 'Keep politics out of it' usually just translates to 'keep the politics I don't personally agree with out of it'. Gotta love how Daniel falling over just makes him look like he's having a temper tantrum. Very in-character.
