So Maximum Dinobots is officially a Spotlight series now then?

Good to see that Destiny looks like it will be doing something with that otherwise pointless subplot from Reign of Starscream at least.

I think that's "spotlighted for retailers" in the same way that Destiny is a "featured item" and MTMTE is "certified cool."

Well, November's Blurr Spotlight supposedly ties into backstory concering the Expansion. Maybe McCarthy's one-shot storytelling skillz are absolutely killer.
