I like the initial concept between the Metrotitans and how they tied it into the MTMTE plot. The fact that Metroplex/titan is shoved into every Spotlight comic regardless of how much sense it makes? Not so much. It's too much shoehorning for my tastes...

If you are only into MTMTE than just go for Hoist and Trailcutter. I really liked the Megatron one but its not to everyones taste it seems. Thundercracker and Orion Pax are ok for a read and the Bumblebee is a perfect fifth issue of the Bumblebee mini.

So was I the only one not to notice Swerve is both on the planet annoying Sunstreaker and back on the Lost Light getting Trailbreaker to help with his sponsored silence at the same time? Suggestive no one in this issue except Hoist is real or cock up?

I read it that hoist is alone on re-reading as everything disappears and he's left in the desert.

I think the event on SL Hoist happen while and after Trailbreaker fell asleep, which is why their SOS signal goes unanswered for a while. What I find troubling is how Swerve recovers so quickly from such a wound to be up and running in MTMTE 6.

The Metrotitans only made sense in SL: Thundercracker, maybe pushing it with SL: Trailbreaker.

Orion Pax just has a quest, since Metroplex isn't even active then. Megatron's has a passing mention of technology. Bumblebee's is even more of a passing reference. Hoist's is just a hallucination.
 

Few stuff in the UK to trade/sell. Measly sales thread.

dont think that would work because his fear is of being alone - why would the machine project that which wasnt his fear?

I read it that the mission happens at some point between the 12 hours Trailcutter recharges. Swerves transmission could have come just before he took off with the others.

Yeah, I'm only into MTMTE, so thanks. Hoist and Trailcutter it is

Probably not, but I found the art to be too offensive and some of the ideas are... actually, it is that bad.

Bumblebee is fast becoming the robot equivalent of Spike - IDW push him as the main guy but write him so erratic that its impossible not to groan when ever his yellow head pops up.

Alright, I'll stay away from it then

Yeah, I heard RID isn't a great read either. I hate that because it has most of my favorite characters in it.

I also don't like it that Bumblebee has to look like his movie counterpart in almost every single thing that's being published right now. I miss the G1 'Bee.

It is odd eh? Swerve seems to be able to recover from things quite quickly, like when he shot his own face off in the battle on Temptoria. That panel counted as the most horrific TF moment I'd ever seen (perhaps because of how well we know Swerve by that point), yet he was up to mischief in the next issue like usual.

Yeah, seeing poor Swerve's face like that in the 6-page preview and then having to wait an age for the printed issue to be available... testing times.
