    ...i just bought that toy and think the look suits jhiaxus quite nicely: thrilling 30 was a high-watermark toyline, and in the hands of a gifted artist i can respect hasbro's directive to base character models on the actual toys...

    Wait are we talking SA2/06 Shadow? If so then them's fighting words. If you mean post 06 and his own game then fair point. But to be honest his edge has been eclipsed by Mr. "I AM NOT WEAK" here. Nowadays Shadow's just a try-hard

    Yeah but that really only leaves Marvel (LOL), DC (MegaLOL) and Image (megaMEH).

    Milne gives so much soul to this comic it’s insane. Like fuck I’m looking forward to this issue for the art alone.

    I still wish they'd done that Jhiaxus in his original colours, I really liked the design but never got why Hasbro went with that random RID-01 deco.

    The first time I've manifested any actual interest in this series is the issue with Milne doing art... coincidence? I think not. :lol 

    It's true. I really have missed Milne's work.

    I hate "badass Bumblebee." I wish we could just stop already. Let him be small and inoffensive and keen. He doesn't need to be Autobot Jackie Chan OR Autobot Joe Pesci.

    I have to admit, I still kind of like the DJD. I mean, bearing in mind that their over-the-topness is actually part of their schtick that was lampshaded many, many times. It's all dramaturgy and propaganda theater, and that's fine (if not also perfect for the Decepticons). I think Roberts was aware they existed on the edge of satire even while spamming the ultraviolence button. If you saw them as a legit, unselfconscious attempt at "edgelord" characters, you were missing the point (and I think some of you are too smart for that).

    I mean, were they "characters"? Did I care about them as individuals? No, but I don't think we need to, really.

    Accepting that they can (and likely will) be part of the TF canon going forward is no big deal. I wouldn't mind seeing someone else explore the concept of the DJD, but it doesn't seem necessary here, so whatevs. It's an easter egg, nothing more.

    So...how long until Tarn shows up? I'm guessing he'll be chilling with Megs in a few pages.

    They're like horror icons.

    They'll never stay buried.

    Boy I hate to say a dumb meme thing, but *ahem* 'hoes be mad.'


    Remember when we all loved them because they were the zealous extremists opposite of Soundwave in the Decepticon ranks that were an old shame of Megatrons' because he unintentionally made monsters of his own troops aka "War is Hell?"

    Good times.

    Those colors work REALLY WELL on him, too. Did a custom for my own shelf of that deco.

    What are you on about? They still were until that stupid megabastard killed them.
