#261 - "Primal Scream" Part 3 & "Starting Over!"

[cover]
Cover: Stephen Baskerville

Cover Date: 17/03/90

"Primal Scream" Part 3
Script:
Simon Furman
Art: Geoff Senior
Letters: Jim Massara
Colours: Nel Yomtov

Originally Printed In: Pages 13-18 of US Transformers #61, dated Mid-December 1989.
Later Reprinted By: Transformers - Primal Scream [US version, Worldwide].

"Starting Over!"
Script: Simon Furman
Art: Staz [pseudonym for Stewart Johnson]
Letters: Stuart Bartlett

Later Reprinted By: Titan Books: Earthforce [Worldwide].

"Primal Scream" Part 3

Synopsis: The Autobots are able to overcome the Mayhems, but a stray shot from Octopunch awakens Primus. His scream causes quakes on Cybertron, but Xaaron is able to complete the transfer of the Autobots and Decepticons to Earth. However, Unicron also heard the scream, and is now heading towards Cybertron.

Notes: Grimlock has titanium steel armour. Unicron and Primus share a psychic link.

Transformers featured [in rough order of appearance]: Bludgeon, Bumblebee, Seawatch, Grimlock, Octopunch, Red Hot, Stakeout, Stranglehold, Jazz, Xaaron.

Notable Others: Primus [waken by Octopunch], Unicron.

Review: The art's the main draw here once again, and the final splash of Unicron is worth the cover price alone. The scripting is rather hackneyed, especially with poor Bumblebee tempting fate twice in as many pages, but the action scenes are fairly fun. A huge step-up from the US fare over the past few years, and a promising set-up for the forthcoming stories.

"Starting Over!"

Synopsis: Prowl and Wheeljack are trying to prevent Megatron from launching a satellite from the Arizona desert. They have a brief scuffle with Mixmaster and Long Haul, but are captured by Megatron. They manage to break free, and attack Megatron as the launch starts.

Notes: Megatron has gathered Soundwave, Dragstrip, Dead End, Mixmaster and Long Haul at least to his faction [we later find out there's two groups of Decepticons on Earth - the other is led by Shockwave]. Wheeljack notes Megatron isn't Decepticon leader anymore.

Transformers featured [in rough order of appearance]: Dragstrip, Dead End, Soundwave, Megatron, Prowl, Wheeljack, Mixmaster, Long Haul.

Production Notes: During printing, the Transformation page got messed up, and the colours are all wrong.

Back-Up Strips:
GI Joe: The Action Force - "Going Under" Part 4
Combat Colin

Review: A funny, nostalgic little script. While it's hugely enjoyable, "Starting Over!" is hindered a little by the lack of background information, meaning the reader is too busy pondering what exactly Megatron's got to do with anything et cetera to enjoy the plus points.

#262 - "Bird of Prey!" Part 1 & "Two Steps Back!"

[cover]
Cover: Stephen Baskerville

Cover Date: 24/03/90

"Bird of Prey" Part 1
Script:
Simon Furman
Art: Geoff Senior
Letters: Jim Massara
Colours: Nel Yomtov

Originally Printed In: Pages 1-6 of US Transformers #62, dated January 1990.
Later Reprinted By: Transformers - Primal Scream [US version, Worldwide].

"Two Steps Back!"
Script: Simon Furman
Art: Andy Wildman
Letters: Stuart Bartlett

Later Reprinted By: Titan Books: Earthforce [Worldwide].

"Bird of Prey" Part 1

Synopsis: Nightbeat, Siren and Hosehead are on Pz-Zazz searching for the lost Matrix. They manage to get caught up in an alien gang war, and the victim of a drive-by gives Siren a mysterious package, containing a statue of a bird of prey. Back on the Ark, Optimus Prime continues to co-ordinate the Matrix Quest, much needed now due to the coming of Unicron.

Notes: The aliens on Pz-Zazz are around the same height as Transformers - particularly beefy specimens are notably taller. The Matrix was lost when Optimus' previous body was sent into Space in #110.

The story is inspired by various 1940s pulp thrillers, notably The Maltese Falcon. There's even Humphrey Bogart on a billboard on page 2. You don't get that in bloody War and Peace, do you?

Errors: Hosehead has too much white on him, and Siren's scheme leaps all over the place until Nel settles on nearly all-blue.

Transformers featured [in rough order of appearance]: Nightbeat, Hosehead, Siren, Optimus Prime, Hot Rod, Xaaron, Jazz [flashback], Bumblebee [flashback], Grimlock [flashback].

Notable Others: Primus [flashback].

Review: Transformers collides with Phillip Marlowe, Dragon's Claws and Star Wars, with superb results. Nightbeat gets a long-overdue return, allowing Furman to exercise his wit and enthusiasm, with Siren and Hosehead terrific foils. The Matrix Quest thread is emphasised without overpowering the lesser story, and it feels wonderful.

[*][*][*][*][*][*][*][*][*][0]

"Two Steps Back!"

Synopsis: The Dinobots scuffle with Shockwave's group of Decepticons, and are gaining the upper hand when Optimus Prime turns up to lecture Grimlock on the Autobot code. The Decepticons use the distraction to get away, leaving Runabout behind to finish off Grimlock. The Dinobot tricks him into falling down a canyon, and resolves to finish his issues with Prime once and for all.

Notes: The biggest spanner in just about any Earthforce theory. The narrative refers to the Dinobots' forthcoming resurrection is US stories, but this can't fit anywhere around there - Prime and all the assembled Decepticons bar Motormaster are definitely on Cybertron by the time Grimlock gets the Dinobots back online, and they don't take a trip to Earth after their revival either, heading straight for their homeworld. It's possible this is a divergent timeline, but further Earthforce stories will make no further reference to the approach of Unicron.

Transformers featured [in rough order of appearance]: Runabout, Grimlock, Shockwave, Slag, Motormaster, Sludge, Swoop, Runamuck, Starscream, Snarl, Optimus Prime.

Letters Page: Flak's motto, missing from the profiles in the 1989 Annual, is "Good luck is the residue of good planning".

Back-Up Strips:
GI Joe: The Action Force - "Manoeuvring for Position" Part 1
Combat Colin

Review: A bit weak, with no real characterisation, a very tedious and convenient Optimus cameo and, in total, very little of interest.

#263 - "Bird of Prey!" Part 2 & "Break-Away!"

[cover]
Cover: Stephen Baskerville

Cover Date: 31/03/90

"Bird of Prey" Part 2
Script:
Simon Furman
Art: Geoff Senior
Letters: Jim Massara
Colours: Nel Yomtov

Originally Printed In: Pages 7-12 of US Transformers #62, dated January 1990.
Later Reprinted By: Transformers - Primal Scream [US version, Worldwide].

"Break-Away!"
Script: Simon Furman
Art: Staz [pseudonym for Stewart Johnson]
Letters: Stuart Bartlett

Later Reprinted By: Titan Books: Earthforce [Worldwide].

"Bird of Prey" Part 2

Synopsis: Alien gangsters plan to get the statue back off the Autobots. Nightbeat, Siren and Hosehead meet up with a local named Miss Fatale, who explains that she will exchange the statue for knowledge of where the fabled Font of Life is. The Autobots realise this could be the Matrix. On his way to get the statue, though, Nightbeat gets into a scuffle with local gangster B'Hgdad.

Notes: More film references - Gutt crushes an Oscar statue, and Nightbeat mentions Peter Lorre.

Errors: Hosehead still has too much white on him, though Nel's getting closer. As Nightbeat pounds the bar, there's some random blue on his visor. As he wipes his hand on the pink alien on page 5, it's changed to a pale blue.

The US note on when Prime's 'funeral' took place hasn't been altered - it still references #26, rather than #110.

Transformers featured [in rough order of appearance]: Xaaron, Optimus Prime, Hot Rod, Hosehead, Siren, Nightbeat, Thunderwing, Spinister, Windsweeper, Needlenose.

Notable Others: Unicon [flashback].

Review: Glorious fun, with Nightbeat once again easily dominating procedings with his unique, glorious characterisation. Just about every frame he's in is a joy, and the character is so larger-than-life everything just seems a little dull by comparison. Senior's art fits beautifully, especially with the grubby B'Ghdad and the alien heavies, and Miss Fatale is the closest Transformers has come yet to an attractive female...

[*][*][*][*][*][*][*][*][*][0]

"Break-Away!"

Synopsis: Grimlock has a showdown with Optimus Prime. The pair fight to a stand-still, before Optimus hits on the idea of putting Grimlock in command of the Autobots on Earth. Just then, news reaches them of Prowl and Wheeljack's predicatment on Earth, and Grimlock mobilises his troops.

Notes: Prowl and Wheeljack scuffled with Megatron in #261. Ironhide, Sunstreaker and Silverbolt presumably returned to Cybertron at some point since. The timeline of these handful of stories is quite easily worked out, relative to each other - it would seem there's some time between "Perhance to Dream" and "Starting Over", with "Two Steps Back" happening just before the latter, and "Break-Away" just after.

There's another reference to Unicron, and the troops with Prime are consistent with those from the early Unicron War. By now, though, you know what you want to do with Earthforce, so there's no point in me putting out convoluted theories as to how Highbrow's kicking around.

Transformers featured [in rough order of appearance]: Grimlock, Sludge, Slag, Swoop, Snarl, Optimus Prime, Highbrow, Getaway, Crosshairs, Cloudburst, Roadhandler, Jazz, Bumblebee, Sunstreaker, Ironhide, Silverbolt.

Back-Up Strips:
GI Joe: The Action Force - "Manoeuvring for Position" Part 2
Combat Colin

Review: Still a bit too throw-away, but it's also rather funny. It's also very believable that the pair would have a scrap, especially when they just stop and laugh. However, much like "Two Steps Back", it's a rather hurried, superficial way of setting up Earthforce.

#264 - "Bird of Prey!" Part 3 & "Desert Island Risks!"

[cover]
Cover: Jeff Anderson

Cover Date: 07/04/90

"Bird of Prey" Part 3
Script:
Simon Furman
Art: Geoff Senior
Letters: Jim Massara
Colours: Nel Yomtov

Originally Printed In: Pages 13-18 of US Transformers #62, dated January 1990.
Later Reprinted By: Transformers - Primal Scream [US version, Worldwide].

"Desert Island Risks!"
Script: Simon Furman
Pencils: Pete Knifton
Inks: Pete Venters
Letters: Stuart Bartlett

Later Reprinted By: Titan Books: Earthforce [Worldwide].

"Bird of Prey" Part 2

Synopsis: One of the gangsters has Nightbeat at gunpoint, but is killed by someone else mysteriously. Meanwhile Fatale takes Siren and Hosehead to the Font of Life, where they're intercepted by another local mobster, Gutt, who is after the bird. Nightbeat arrives, having worked out that the bird is what powers the font. The Autobots and Fatale take out Gutt's men, and Nightbeat replaces the statue, revitalising the planet. However, Thunderwing's Decepticons then make their presence known, taking out Nightbeat.

Notes: Thunderwing took command of the [Cybertronian] Decepticons in #242. The Autobots' weapons have stun settings [presumably for organic life].

Transformers featured [in rough order of appearance]: Nightbeat, Siren, Hosehead, Needlenose, Windsweeper, Thunderwing, Ruckus, Spinister.

Review: A wonderful conclusion. Nightbeat once again dominates the story, with his joy at rejuvinating Pz-Zazz clearly outweighing the disappointment of not finding the Matrix. It's a enjoyable finish to one of Furman's best scripts, and if only all the Matrix Quest installments were enjoyable it would be a high-point of the run. Oh, and a serious entry for best shock ending in Transformers history.

[*][*][*][*][*][*][*][*][*][0]

"Desert Island Risks!"

Synopsis: Bumblebee and Ironhide are investigating Decepticon activity in the Bahamas, while searching for Prowl. They find a half-built Devastator that the Constructicons are making, having lost their ability to combine. Ironhide is able to navigate the treacherous defence grid, and destroy the robot.

Notes: When, or how, the Constructicons lost their ability to combine is unknown. It does seem to be known to Ironhide and Bumblebee. A Nucleon side-effect could be theorised, depending on your preferences, though it could be anywhere since #62. On a non-narrative level, it's most likely a plug for the Action Master Devastator, which would have been issued at this time, and/or possibly the non-combining yellow/grey Constructicon reissues. An Axustian is a subterranean lifeform in the Hydrus Four system. This story most likely takes place after Earthforce's arrival in #265.

Transformers featured [in rough order of appearance]: Ironhide, Bumblebee. Plus the construct of Devastator.

Back-Up Strips:
GI Joe: The Action Force - "Manoeuvring for Position" Part 3
Combat Colin

Review: Again, a bit silly. The most interesting bit is the idea of the Constructicons losing the ability to combine, which is really skimmed over - it really feels like we've missed something somewhere. The rest of it is just daft, with the Constructicons choosing to surround their work with a defence grid that can be solved by passing knowledge of eighties game-shows and third-rate riddles.

#265 - "Once Upon a Time..."

[cover]
Cover: Gary Gilbert

Cover Date: 14/04/90

Script: Simon Furman
Art: Andy Wildman
Letters: Peri Godbold

Later Reprinted By: Titan Books: Earthforce [Worldwide].

NB: For the colour Transformers strip, the 1987 GI Joe and the Transformers limited series was reprinted. It was split into sixteen parts and ran from #265 to #281. As this series sits outside of UK continuity, it is reviewed here. #265 contained the first quarter of GI Joe and the Transformers #1.

Synopsis: Grimlock reads Earthforce the story of the war so far, having arrived at their new base in the Canadian tundra. The group decide to avoid making the same mistakes the Autobots have before, and set out to rescue Prowl and Wheeljack.

Notes: Earthforce are located sixteen miles from Churchill, in Northern Canada. Grimlock implies he'd been Prime's lieutenant during the early days of the civil war. Prowl and Wheeljack went missing in #261.

Transformers featured [in rough order of appearance]: Megatron [flashback], Optimus Prime [flashback], Soundwave [flashback], Starscream [flashback], Prowl [flashback], Brawl [flashback], Snarl, Slag, Swoop, Sludge, Grimlock, Silverbolt, Ironhide, Jazz, Bumblebee, Sunstreaker.

Extras: A-Z covers Shockwave.

Back-Up Strips:

Review: Earthforce is still failing to find any gears, and while the design and idea is good fun [Grimlock is also hilarious, though Bumblebee and Jazz being fine with the disregard for the Autobot code feels forced and unlikely], it's another silly throw-away story.

#266 - "Life in the Slow Lane"

[cover]
Cover: Andy Wildman

Cover Date: 21/04/90

Script: Simon Furman
Pencils: Pete Knifton
Inks: Pete Venters
Letters: Glib

Later Reprinted By: Titan Books: Earthforce [Worldwide].

NB: For the colour Transformers strip, the 1987 GI Joe and the Transformers limited series was reprinted. It was split into sixteen parts and ran from #265 to #281. As this series sits outside of UK continuity, it is reviewed here. #266 contained the second quarter of GI Joe and the Transformers #1.

Synopsis: Jazz and Sunstreaker finally have a firm fix on Prowl in Lousiana, and set off to rescue him. Unknown to them, Megatron has dispatched troops to recover the satellite's payload, as has Shockwave. The two groups of Decepticons begin to fight among themselves, and Prowl reveals he was safe all along, with the deactivated payload, taking it easy.

Errors: Furman's got the factions muddled already, unless Megs and Shockers have swapped the Battlechargers [who should be with the latter], for Dead End and Dragstrip [who should be with the former].

Transformers featured [in rough order of appearance]: Jazz, Sunstreaker, Prowl, Megatron [flashback], Runabout, Runamuck, Dragstrip, Dead End.

Back-Up Strips:
GI Joe: The Action Force - "Shuttle Complex" Part 1
Combat Colin

Letters Page: Dreadwind quashes TF:TM 2 rumours, but skirts around "King of the Mechannibals"' assertion that there were Micromaster videos avaliable in the UK at the time.

Review: Pfff, another silly throw-away. At least there's some hint of conflict, though Furman dropping the ball massively with the factions being both jarring and a bit confusing. It's also a very anti-climactic conclusion to the mystery of where Prowl's been.

#267 - "Snow Fun!"

[cover]
Cover: John Marshall

Cover Date: 28/04/90

Script: Simon Furman
Art: Jeff Anderson
Letters: Stuart Bartlett

Later Reprinted By: Titan Books: Earthforce [Worldwide].

NB: For the colour Transformers strip, the 1987 GI Joe and the Transformers limited series was reprinted. It was split into sixteen parts and ran from #265 to #281. As this series sits outside of UK continuity, it is reviewed here. #267 contained the third quarter of GI Joe and the Transformers #1.

Synopsis: Grimlock ventures out in a blizzard to meet a challenge to a duel from Shockwave. However, the other Dinobots have set him up for a joke. He runs into Razorclaw and Rampage. After dealing with them, he returns to Autobase, where the others are already worried he might not have seen the funny side.

Notes: Razorclaw and Rampage are part of Shockwave's faction, and have been revived since #209.

Transformers featured [in rough order of appearance]: Grimlock, Razorclaw, Rampage, Slag, Swoop, Snarl, Sludge.

Extras: A-Z profiles Shrapnel and Sideswipe.

Letters Page: Dreadwind uses an old line - that the cartoon is wildly inaccurate - when faced with a question concerning the episode "Call of the Primitives". He's also especially tetchy, responding bullishly to complaints about both the three-story format and the frequency of reprints.

Review: Earthforce gets worse before it gets better. A remarkably stupid story, which is four weeks too late to be topical. This is the kind of stupidity expected from a Christmas episode.

#268 - "Flashback!"

[cover]
Cover: Stephen Baskerville

Cover Date: 05/05/90

Script: Simon Furman
Pencils: John Marshall
Inks: Stephen Baskerville
Letters: Glib

Later Reprinted By: Titan Books: Fallen Star [Worldwide].

NB: For the colour Transformers strip, the 1987 GI Joe and the Transformers limited series was reprinted. It was split into sixteen parts and ran from #265 to #281. As this series sits outside of UK continuity, it is reviewed here. #268 contained the fourth quarter of GI Joe and the Transformers #1.

Synopsis: Having taken one of Megatron's bases, Prowl follows the former Decepticon leader through a flashback doorway, which he hopes will allow him to find more troops. Prowl finds himself in New York in 1988 during the Underbase affair. He realises Megatron has possessed Snap Trap to try and spare the Seacons and recruit them in the present day. Prowl intervenes, and knocks the Decepticon out. After overseeing the Seacons' destruction, Prowl awaits his own deactivation at the hands of Starscream, after which he wakes up back in the present.

Notes: It is shown retroactively that Prowl was destroyed by Starscream during #209. His death was not shown at the time. A Flashback portal seemingly allows a Transformer to possess another Transformer in the past, Prowl taking over his past self and Megatron taking over Snap Trap. Prowl's original self appears to have survived Starscream's original attack, only to be finished off soon afterwards. Megatron doesn't recognise Prowl, believing him to be Optimus Prime, presumably a side-effect of time travel, or of possessing Snap Trap.

Errors: Wherever you place Earthforce, Prowl has 'died' more than once. As well as his deactivation in the opening handful of issues, there was whatever stopped him before #109, and then his death at the hands of Starscream. I suppose it just sounded slicker than "Dying twice is bad enough, but dying three times is beyond a joke."

Transformers featured [in rough order of appearance]: Prowl [both 1988 version, destroyed by Starscream, and present version], Starscream [1988 version], Snap Trap [1988 version, possessed by present-day Megatron, destroyed by Starscream], Jawbreaker [1988 version, destroyed by Starscream], Seawing [1988 version, destroyed by Starscream], Tentakil [1988 version, destroyed by Starscream], Skalor [1988 version, destroyed by Starscream], Nautilator [1988 version, destroyed by Starscream], Jazz.

Back-Up Strips:
GI Joe: The Action Force - "Shuttle Complex" Part 3
Combat Colin

Review: At last - a very smart little story, incredibly ambitious. Furman again shows his abilities of temporal invention, and though the precise method by which Megatron possesses Snap Trap is brushed over, it's a very nice idea. The art is beautiful, incredibly detailed, such as the frames where Prowl is partially melted by Starscream, and again it's shown what a great character Prowl could be when properly written for. A minor classic. This is what Earthforce should be.

#269 - "Mystery!"

[cover]
Cover: Pete Knifton

Cover Date: 12/05/90

Script: Simon Furman
Pencils: Pete Knifton
Inks: Pete Venters
Letters: Glib

Later Reprinted By: Titan Books: Earthforce [Worldwide].

NB: For the colour Transformers strip, the 1987 GI Joe and the Transformers limited series was reprinted. It was split into sixteen parts and ran from #265 to #281. As this series sits outside of UK continuity, it is reviewed here. #269 contained the first quarter of GI Joe and the Transformers #2.

Synopsis: Skydive arrives to take over guard duty from Wheeljack, only to find the latter missing. Due to the circumstances, Skydive jumps to the conclusion that Wheeljack was killed by a Decepticon. He leaps on the believed murderer, only to find it to be Wheeljack. It turns out the latter had been startled by a polar bear, and ran off and hid.

Notes: Air Raid and Skydive [as well as, we later find, Fireflight and Slingshot] have been revived and dispatched to Earthforce. Transformers can feel cold.

Transformers featured [in rough order of appearance]: Skydive, Wheeljack, Air Raid.

Extras: A-Z covers Silverbolt and Skids.

Back-Up Strips:

Review: Back to the silly, random vignettes. It'd work better if Skydive had a particularly paranoid character. It's also very much a victim of the Earthforce stories to date - the reader is very much waiting for the limp comic twist.

As this series sits outside of UK continuity, it is reviewed here. #270 contained the second quarter of GI Joe and the Transformers #2.

Synopsis: Shockwave and Megatron have called a truce to discuss the possibility of reuniting their troops. Jazz, Sunstreaker, Ironhide and Bumblebee have sneaked in to observe the meeting, and are able to engineer a fight between the two factions, ensuring there's no alliance.

Notes: Headstrong, Tantrum, Divebomb, Blitzwing, Octane and Astrotrain have been revived since #209.

Transformers featured [in rough order of appearance]: Headstrong, Shockwave, Megatron, Octane, Dead End, Blitzwing, Rampage, Bonecrusher, Long Haul, Kickback, Ravage, Jazz, Sunstreaker, Bumblebee, Ironhide, Soundwave, Mixmaster, Breakdown, Astrotrain, Blitzwing, Starscream, Motormaster, Bombshell, Rumble.

Back-Up Strips:

Review: A bit better. It's nice to see some Decepticons, frankly, and to get some idea of the size of their factions. Jazz' idea is fairly cool, and the idea of Predacons loitering around the buffet is pretty endearing.
