Yeah, combiner wars is hasbro's big thing in 2015 isn't it? Lots of protectobots on the Lost Light too...

I like plenty of the themes and issues that RID deals with, but the writing itself is IMO not great. Compare the bits bringing returning characters (and readers) up to date between this and MTMTE, an amusing "everything's the same except this... And this... " and so on segment versus yet more overtly expositional inner monologues on a massive 2 page spread.

The blurring of the lines between good and bad could be really interesting, is Prowl going off the deep end, is Starscream actually doing the right thing in spite of the way he does it, along with a number of other little threads, and I think that's what frustrates me the most. It could be very good but the actual writing just keeps letting it down.
