    you already own them, no use selling them before reading them. even if you hate them it's good to partake in the media.

    Thank you Slide for reminding us of what was WRONG with the IDW-verse at the end. "It's always Primes' fault, all aliens are bad." etc. Just shut up and fight the greatest evil in existence and maybe you'll survive... maybe.

    A word of advice to all of you complainers grow up you can dislike these comics for all you like but you don\'t have to be so darn rude about it. I get that you can\'t please everyone but that\'s no excuse to start acting rudely about it all. As I\'ve said before W.A.S. = Wait And See then you can judge it as it is. With all due respect

    Anyone wish we could get a prime/screamer combiner? Or arcee/skywarp?

    No?

    Kidding.

    What I would like is that Unicron design as a titan. I mean it looks so cool.

    Slide. Slide. Who cares. In two issues possibly less she will be gone. Don't worry about her. She's the new pyra magna.

    Its looking like prime is gonna make his usual sacrifice and destroy himself and Unicron. Slide will realise she was wrong about him etcvetc. I would also imagine issue 25 of optimus prime will be bots remembering prime.

    For better or worse optimus prime is transformers. After 35 years he's still front and centre no matter how much Hasbro tries to turn the focus to bumblebee. Prime will always sell more figs then bb. And this issue will prove IMO why he's optimus prime.

    Suck it slide ;)

    I'm feeling more and more strongly the Earth Enigma is going to have some role to play in this finale. We've had:
    • Superion, who possesses a portion of the Enigma source code, on one of Raiz's covers
    • The possibility of using the Enigma of Combination raised a few issues ago, and then dismissed because the combiner wouldn't be big enough
    • The Aerialbots now coming into the story, in the same place as Soundwave, who might still have the Enigma on him
    I suspect this is all leading to more than just the Aerialbots combining again. Maybe both Enigmas will somehow be used together to make an even bigger combiner out of every Cybertronian, or maybe Barber will go full crazy and have all the Cybertronians combine with all of humanity. Interested to see if I'm looking too much into things or not.

    I think barber will do a Furman and go crazy
    When Furman was wrapping up the UK future epics in Marvel with time wars the body count shot through the roof. I think and kinda hope we get something similar here. Lots of carnage lots of destruction. Bring it on.

    As someone who has read an advance copy of Unicron #6, I will say this: have faith in Slide's arc.

    Not cool, dude.

    I\'m not gonna lie I like Getaway compared to how much I dislike Slide one way or another she\'s gonna get a sweet taste of humble pie (or is it humble energon?). While I do like the different artistic styles I\'d honestly prefer one consistent style throughout the entire run however I do get that it\'s a lot of effort for just one artist and frankly despite the different  styles it still looks pretty good. I\'m still wondering what loose ends John Barber intends to tie up eg.
    What is the significance of the thirteenth prime?
    any chance of seeing the quintessons playing a role in this story?
    also will the aerialbots combine again to maybe form some sort of force field around earth using the enigma of combination?
    Maybe just maybe find out what happened to the other primes whose final fates haven\'t been revealed? 
    Plus I\'ve had a bit of a wild theory that Optimus may have time travel in time after jumping into vector sigma at the end of chaos theory which might explain the whole thirteenth prime thing 

    Thoughts on these theories anyone?

    Prime takes so much crap from people I literally want to punch anyone (in the book:D ) talking smack about him.

    I think he's saying "I'm Unicron to you!"
    But we'll know for sure once a higher resolution for the preview appears.

    I'm not one to usually complain about hating a character, but man Slide has been too much. I get the feeling this is subtext to point out how some real world stuff gets this absurd.

    My hopes for this issue are 1. That Liege Maximo's story isn't over, that can't be it can it? They've hinted at something else going on with Bludgeon and the Maximals 2. The LL gets a call and they get in the final battle someway somehow, but maybe that's a long shot. Megatron, the franchise's #2 character being completely absent from this final showdown would be a let down, but I can't say I would be surprised if that's the case.

    It looks like a tribute to Infinity Gauntlet #4 so I would have said it's "Come and Get Me!" Zooming in, it doesn't look like it's exactly that but something similar.
