Christ, seriously, have they explained Bumblebee's complete change of personality from the pragmatic "The humans are expendable" bad ass in the early issues? Did he hit his head or something? Since when did Skywarp become so scary? Wings of Wax? Wings of Wank more like.

Must go back and read parts 1 to 3 because I cant recall why (if) Skywarp is hunting the human.

This issues going to have to be a blinder to save the series.

They forgot to draw in the shark though.

Really...this mini-series sucks. It's boring, and the art is horrible (in my opinion of course). I look forward to its end. :(

I've read the preemptive review. Maybe I got it wrong, but...

...does it end with Bumblebee changing his look, to be more similar to his bayformer counterpart? Isn't he supposed to look already that way in the ongoing? Even in his EJ Su's version, his transformation was already closer to the bayformer than the G1, I think.

In my email box the threads reads as "Transformers Bum".

-No respect for continuity (both the ongoing and previous)
-Direct reinvention of characters and characterization (Wheeljack and Bumblebee are miles away from what they are previously, and I've only looked at previews)
-Art is sub-par. Even Don's new style is better than this.
-Villains are dull humans and a 'smart' Skywarp who no doubt would meet his end at the end of the mini-arc, only to be revived by a writer who likes him.

Damn, this is worse than AHM and the ongoing. Even AHM had Wheeljack say little bits of funny dialogue instead of being a total jerk, and Bumblebee was the 'good little soldier' instead of the emo guy.
