    It's not like getting remarried, she can't go out and pick someone to be her new twin.

    It's like losing an arm or leg, it's fundamentally part of her and not something that can easily be replaced or ignored for lack of a better word.

    Does Oiler have to be in this? Why didn't he die already? How can someone like this still live in the last issue, when all he does is complain?

    If it weren't for Milne's art, I would probably cancel my pre-order for the TPB, as it appears to be the same shit we get in the Optimus Prime books. I hope the last issue reads A LOT BETTER. But the preview does not really make me happy. Well, a bit, because it is soon over. Weird that I would feel happy for finally having my favorite continuity to end. Shouldn't they have made it in such a way that I would be sad? Well, at least I'll be missing MTMTE/LL.

    This is Slide, not Oiler, and she's not a he.

    I liked his evergreen design

    I know that Optimus is the main torso and head

    I mean, we're assuming she was named for that particular fallacy, right?

    I'm not a fan of Barber's writing. Where Roberts' writing is clever and engaging, Barber's feels like bad fan-fiction, and is difficult for me to trudge through.

    Micromaster combiner. Combines with Oiler to make a double length vehicle.

    Whole series has been a frustrating read, I understand this ending is for IDW but it's unfortunate it was sold as an event, it's inaccessible to new readers or anyone who dropped the TF books and the Hasbroverse.

    If you think the end of the story needs to be a starting/jump in point for the comic you're reading it for the wrong reason. That's no better than starting a novel from a chapter 3/4 of the way through the book and wondering what's going on.

    And NO, Lost Light was no better at being a jump in point as Anode was useless as your audience surrogate for that purpose.

    The difference is Roberts had a beginning a middle and an end for his story and IDW made a big mistake forcing it to start at issue one for Hasbroverse. This Unicron story was advertised as a comics event and has failed to make introductions, the very name Unicron is one known to fans, people who saw the last movie, G1 fans who haven't read IDW but might see it and others who may be interested in TF and yet they'll get ambushed by a story with a hundred characters, a story demanding you read a ton of old comics.
