I'm stunned by how not-hyped I am for this. Like, the closest comparison I can think of is AHM. When AHM was announced, it was a back-to-basics reboot of a line of comics I liked. I was flat-out angry that the -ation series was being truncated... But I was ALSO reluctantly excited. Those cool propaganda poster covers, that kick-ass Guido Guidi art, even the simple, hard-hitting premise grabbed me. This? Meh. Could not care less. Like, I definitely think there are cool stories you could tell during the early war period... ...but I kinda feel like the previous continuity just nailed this period so well, over an extended period of time. Yeah, it was mostly flashbacks, but by the end pre-war Cybertron felt like a rich, lived-in world. Now they've gotta start over. And they can do something new but... are they really going to top "Chaos Theory"? No. There's simply no way.
