    ... you mean aside from beating the living shit out of Chromia and Windblade, while shrugging off the effects of being impaled all the way through his torso with a sword as if it were nothing?

    The little bit we've seen of him actually fighting made him seem pretty badass to me.

    I love how everyone just kinda casually watches Gears get thrown into the stratosphere via explosion and Wheeljack is like: oh yeah we should probably go get him.

    Well, according to the backup story in the valentines comic, this is apparently a regular occurrence for poor Gears. Cosmos is usually the one getting him back. Kind of disconcerting that it happens so often that they treat it with little worry.

    Possible foreshadowing of his possible demise?

    Love the Risers.


    And I know I shouldn’t get my hopes up (again)....but can Orion please do something interesting this issue? I’ve been waiting nearly a YEAR.

    I haven't been keeping up. Is this our first Astrotrain? You'd need a Titan class to that scale.

    Not really. Commander class, assuming Slipstream is a deluxe.

    That said, Astrotrain is probably exercising some mass shifting as he immediately transforms into his transport mode to allow the boarding party.

    It's like a running gag among the Autobots in general. Read the Valentine's Day issue.

    That's true. He hasn't even patched up the wound yet. A few issues later he just says it gives him an ache in his t-cog whenever he's in tank mode.

    No, dude. The idea that you or a "fan" needs to be invested or look at EVERY piece of your fandom. It's not necessary, it's rarely enjoyable, and frankly, it's unhealthy.

    If you don't like a thing, you don't have to, even if it's about a thing you like on a broader sense. I love Transformers; a lot if it is crap and I don't need to spend my money or TIME on things that aren't enjoyable. I love Tolkien; I hate the hobbit movie and didn't waste my time or money on the next movies.
