    I find it interesting that Soundwave was only able to gain a sense of self by shutting out the world, and rather poignantly saved everyone by letting the world in such that he was no more.

    Wow Predaking came back after awhile but didn't he die?

    It would appear Iron Klaw repaired him.

    The only thing that happened that could've prevented Predaking was Razorclaw was shot in the head by Kup; you can assume that wasn't as fatal as depicted.

    Holy shit I loved this issue. More thoughts later maybe but...

    Did that shot kill Trypticon?
    And Soundwave got to meet Ravage again in the afterlife! *sobs*
    Fucking epic Barber.
    This was a happy ending for so many without being saccharine which is, alas, how I felt about LL. I know we shouldn’t compare but it’s hard not to given the timings.

    Now we’ve got just about enough time for Optimus to be resurrected in OP 25.

    Wow, that was a packed indeed.

    Optimus, Starscream, and Soundwave, all three of them kaput. Everyone at least got one moment for themselves, so that was nice.

    So Pyra and Slide finally stopped being mad... yay? I guess.

    Shockwave’s final fate seems akin to Negan.

    Though, it’s not quite clear to me that Ironhide and the Dinobots died.

    I don’t know, a lot to digest in this issue, and to think, we still have one more left.

    That was an amazing pack-sized finale! I still need to re-read it to process what just happened, but the wait was worth it.

    Thank you Alex Milne for being the main artist for this series. It must have been trying, but your efforts have paid off for a stunning conclusion.

    Now to wait for Optimus Prime #25 to see how it all ends...

    Well. That was an interesting ending. There was some stuff I liked, some stuff that was lame, but overall it was a pretty good send off.

    That final splash-page was damn good.

    It's going to take a long time to sink in and process, but all I can say for now, is that you can feel the passion from the full creative team. It shows on the page, and I really think they nailed the landing.

    I need to put on my headphones, slam on some Gunship and read that again. That was pretty fucking brilliant.

    Can't believe it, but I think I got more emotional reading this than LL.

    It looks like Swoop will be the only one who Grimlock could have a reunion with...
