    It’s been a while since this the last issue was released.

    The first half of the issue basically brings the reader up to speed, while also showing us the aftermath from the previous events. It feels a bit repetitive, since I’ve read all of the previous issues, and not a whole lot of new answers are provided.

    The second half is a lot more interesting and fun.
    Seeing the Autobots raiding Swindle’s casino-style building was pretty fun to see.

    Some highlights:

    Even with its faults, there were still elements that I enjoyed.

    I can't believe Rumble was framed.

    The only original character that I’m aware of is Trickdiamond (the bot who is based on Arcee):

    There’s also Mindwipe and Visper:

    And there’s this page, which most likely contains generics:

    Actually looks like there's quite a few named characters in the crowd, which is a rarity in this series I think. Might be missing a few, but just at a glance:
    Misfire, Riptide, Twirl, Seaspray, Hubcap, Tentakil, Nautilator, the Hot Rod Patrol (minus Hubs?), MW Starscream, and what appears to Megaplex in Energon Starscream's body next to him.

    The dragon guy on the right seems really familiar (thought it was LG Mindwipe's accessory at first but it's too different).

    Trickdiamond is actually not an original character. She combines with 4 other female decepticons to form Megatronia. 5FBB759A-C0C3-48C7-89D7-EE5132BADBD8.jpeg CB12389E-D0A8-4D06-8336-CCF70BA0E5CF.jpeg Was actually surprised to see her. Pretty obscure character.

    Yeah, I'm pretty surprised too. Does that mean IDW2 will have Megatronia?

    Maybe that's why Pyra Magna has been imprisoned. We might get the Decepticon of Victorion in this continuity.

    Lug or anode (can't remember which is which, the green plane from Lost Light) is in the center on the left

    That would be cool. I really like their designs. The only established combiners are abominus and devastator correct? Would be interested to see how they'll bring more combiners into the continuity.

    Seeing big Gutcruncher in this makes me want a repaint with new parts of him from Siege Megatron, just reposition the arm cannon to his shoulder.

    This was a really solid issue. It felt a lot longer than most and wrapped up nicely. I'll say a bit more once the conversations get going but it was really refreshing to see Mindwipe. And I am absolutely loving Sideswipe, he feels like an underdog protagonist and I hope he remains important.

    Good issue, I liked seeing Hound's love of nature getting a showing.

    Good? Solid? No. There was no story to be had here. This was just a bunch of stuff happening. That's not a story.

    Anyone remember when you could buy a comic book and actually have a story to read?

    Not much to write home about, but even a hot pocket starts to taste good when you haven't eaten in a month.

    THEY MADE FRENZY BLUE, THIS CONTINUITY IS TRASH!!! FRENZY IS RED GODDAMMIT!!!!!

    • No Megatron! That's an automatic plus in my book.
    • Prowl flipped a table, the meme continues!
    • Prowl also appears to be very utilitarian when it comes to naming pets.
    • I was having my doubts about IDW2, but then they threw in Swindle so I'm satisfied for now.
    • Sentinel Prime continues to be my favorite character so far, he has no chill whatsoever. Anyone else notice he apparently crushed a piece of the balcony?
    • Mindwipe put in a good showing.

    Sentinel's just done with everyone's crap and then some. So far I like this characterization of him much better than the IDW2005 version.

    Well, I've been on the ball about dropping IDW Transformers to lighten my pull list, but after a few months break, having 3 of my all time favorite Decepticons at once (Swindle, Trickdiamond, and Mindwipe) being themselves is enough to keep me going for now. (I do consider Trickdiamond one because I just like the idea of a female Swindle from her bio off the Megatronia set).

    I enjoyed that issue. Nice to see Hound in there and also swindle. I enjoyed the portrayal of my boy Swipe. Hope he stays pertinent and that they bring in his bro soon.
