    We sorta knew that though. From the previews. I do want to say though that the shit is about to hit the fan in RID for sure.
    Jhiaxus

    Shockwave

    damn it, i wasn't going to get the waspinator toy, but now i feel i have too. i'm guessing the lost light crew will be going to cybertron soon, using the space bridge salvaged from dead titans

    We kind of guessed that King Starscream reign will be short one. I do admit I like the art and coloration a lot.

    Agreed, the artwork in this issue was fantastic.

    Although, I am not buying
    how Pax is not interested in hearing Hardhead reveal that the inhabitants called Gorlam Prime: Cybertron.
    This is a HUGE piece of this puzzle. With it being a suspected trap, I am sure he would like to know as much as possible.

    think from the previous orion pax issue, he already knows it's now called pax cybertronia and it gives him the creeps

    orion pax notices waspinator is a traitor, when waspinator calls him the same thing jhiaxus does, "the true matrix bearer"

    oh ya i forgot the decepticons now have the time ship


    ill admit RID is subpar, but the orion pax issues are awesome. not because of him, but because the issues has this mystic feel to them. i'm kinda worried its not selling well, or is it just too early in the day to expect more people on the boards?

    I didn't think much to it myself, I just read through it - didn't care much for the art either.

    Might be time to just drop RID - the occasional issue raises the standard, but I've just got no interest in anything that's happening to the characters at the moment :/

    It something about the story and writing being uneven. Barber has stronger sense of writing Starscream than say of Arcee. I think he can write certain characters well others not. Also his story is much slower pace about the political intrigue however now the stuff with Shockwave is really good.

    I can actually handle bad writing it is not enough to make me drop the series now with bad art I will certainly drop the series.

    People are not making big like do MTMTE however it is the holiday tomorrow 4th of July which big deal in America. That may be adding to it.

    i feel the opposite, the orion pax issues bore me to death, while i enjoy the main story on cybertron more, but overall i'm enjoying RID, not as much as MTMTE, but enjoying it nonetheless

    I'm enjoying both as well, MTMTE is certainly my favourite, with RID coming in second.

    Given that Hardhead spent three years being rebuild by jhiaxus will there be a time change back on Cybertron too?

    Also looking to see a fight between Monstructor and Devastator...Teacher vs Student.

    Prowl as Devastator again? I would like to see that. Not to mention that the Constructicons are the biggest fans of Prowl now. I don't think they will be to adverse to combining with Prowl. LOL

    I really must respectfully disagree with those who enjoyed the art in this issue. I found it rather hard to stomach at times (particularly the last page, where Wheelie looks like an old man who has smelled something really bad). Hardhead looks like he doesn't even transform, and the other robots had some rather organic-looking facial elements. I honestly bought the Casey Coller cover just so I could remember what these characters should look like in-universe as I was reading it.

    The story was o.k., but it seems strange to me that Waspinator gains *complete* control over a Titan that Orion Pax resurected.

    So, Starscream's gonna screw it up big time when the Titan shows up and Prime's gonna swoop in and save everyone's sorry afts.

    And the NAILs will still be ungrateful jerks.
