    Last time we saw Arcee, she was on Earth. Then in Combiner Hunters, she was on Cybertron. I was hoping maybe this issue would show her come to Cybertron and that CH would take place after this issue. But nope... she's there from the start.

    Given that there's a space bridge on the Ark-7, I really don't think her coming and going between Earth and Cybertron is much of a problem.

    This issue certainly seems intriguing and it's good to see the First Aid and the others return to the Lost Light.

    Magnus mentions to Optimus in Combiner Wars Opening Salvo that they've learned a ton of stuff about quantum travel technology, the Protectobot's shuttle's either been souped up with it or has some remote connection to the Lost Light's engines. Or maybe a wizard did it.

    Or they just haven't traveled all that far due to getting side tracked and stuff...

    Seriously. >> I agree, if people are gonna start accepting these characters, IDW needs to step up their game and give guys like Alpha Bravo, Offroad, and especially Rook their time in the sun. No one else is going to.

    I can't remember exactly what was said, but James Roberts was asked about the Protectobots at TFcon. He said that First Aide's story was not done, but alluded that the others would probably not be heavily featured because the cast is already pretty large. He had not heard of Rook. Someone passed a Rook figure up to him to look at. Possible inspiration?

    Given that fact that Hasbro made them introduce those crappy 2nd stringers in the first place.

    2nd page, panel 1 sure looks a lot like Swindle hanging out behind Acidstorm.

    Mistake or not dead?

    Glad to see the Protectobots uncombined and headed back to the Lost Light, they haven't been seen as individuals since the enigma was used on them.

    Also I have a feeling Defensor is going to be needed in a few issues time.

    Looking forward to finding more out about Needlenose too.

    Their first jump after Dark Cybertron was straight to the Galactic Rim, even if they've not travelled that far in the, in story, 8(ish?) months after that first jump the Lost Light's still pretty gosh darned far away.

    Good to see the Protectobots making their way back to the Lost Light, hopefully they arrive in time for Defensor to be of use in some..future events.

    This looks like it's going to be another winner like the Cosmos issue. Barber's really nailing these character focus stories. Makes me wish we could bring Spotlights back full-time.

    Agreed.

    I really like these figures but I have no idea for their personalities other some fan ideas.

    I like that Griffith put Quark in the background of that first page, nice nod to MTMTE.
