Growing up I had always understood that Decepticons were the military class of sorts and the Autobots were the working class of sorts. I don’t know if that’s close or what though
Thats how it was presented in the TV show, a few comics touched on this area and have given their own twist but until this book and WFC Hasbro had not given a definitive story.
As it stands now all Cybertronians were created to fulfill a particular role within the caste system imposed on them by the high council. Most, but not all of the Decepticons came from the lowest caste of laborers, both Megaton and Optimus became disenfranchised with this system and wanted Cybertronians to be able to choose their own destiny but when Megaton starts a violent rebellion against the council Optimus is chosen to defend Cybertron against the Decepticons and bring about a new age of freedom.
This book will tell you every thing you need to know about the history of Optimus and Megatron but in a nutshell while always being wary Optimus did support Megaton during the lead up to the war needless to say the partnership was short lived.
Who do you think is the figure collaborating with Prowl ? I can think of 2 possible TFs : Skywarp (ability to teleport = I/D chip removed ?) and Starscream (doesn't like Ratbat to begin with). I'd love to know your opinion !
I really have no idea sorry I dont have anything interesting to speculate about, but the silhouette behind Prowl does kind of look like Arcee, shes definitely crazy enough to help destroy the shuttle and for some reason I dont think its going to be a Decepticon.
I wouldnt mind getting both, I do like them both, I dont know if I could afford to do it. I kinda want Giant more since he is more in scale with my Classics. I just want to know for sure if a green one is coming or not!
I would say that a G1 repaint is certainly coming but as this is from a third party its harder to say for sure I would imagine it will depend on sales of Battle Tanker and the G2 version to fund its production
I’ll admit I wasn’t as charmed by this one as by MTMTE#1; the writing wasn’t as, well, funny. But damn did it lay the ground for some intriguing plot in upcoming volumes. Can’t wait to read the next one!
Ive only just realized why I didnt enjoy it as much as MTMTE, it wasnt funny !
Its the TFC Toys Hercules while not an official product according to reviews the build quality and engineering is on par with Hasbro but it does carry a very large price tag ( over $600 for all 6 shipped ) its still very impressive.
So I guess this means I need to get around to reading the rest of the Marvel comics finally…
The last four Titan graphic novels collect all of Furmans work on the series, Im reading them now and there awesome, but for anyone that hasn’t read the US G1 series these are the books your going to need to pick up
Oh! Damn! SPOILER ALERT! LOL I haven’t read the whole saga yet. Because I put my bills first, I pick up my comics from My LCBS every 4-6 Months. Ok, but still that is kinda lame from a character who just always came off strong & knows what he is doing & is right…
Sorry didnt realize I hope that doesn’t spoil your enjoyment of it, it marks the turning point in IDWs Transformers books and its a very good book
i always prefered the late issues, where Simon Furman pick up the storylines and make the Transformers really good. These early issues have their charm, but… yeah, they are lame as shit (i have this comic btw)
Simon did such a great job on both the UK and US series, I cant wait for his return with #81
