Perceptor and Broadside make great thumbnails - then you see the hollow limbs. And I just cannot buy a toy called "Twinferno".

In exactly the same way the POVA stuff was seeded into and dealt with in the equally packed Last Stand? No, in nothing like the same way; that grew organically via the gradual stripping away of Ironfist's fanboy belief that the head of an Autobot death squad would be squeaky clean and is based on a...

Or when Shane McCarthy called Octane 'Tankor' and there was a fatwah issued and then James Roberts called Trailbreaker 'Trailcutter' and a group of people slightly smaller than Wigan's average home attendance declared him the all-time king of writing?

I said "Noted", not using it as an excuse. And Roche actually announced what had happened in the middle of the run, not after it had finished. And I didn't give it leeway anyway, allow me to quote myself: #rackattack The Stakeout thing has actually grown on me with each rereading, originally I was ...

Yeah, got Goldbug on order and am planning to get the set providing they all come out as the oversized KOs; the Wideload isn't thrilling me and I suspect I'll only assemble the gestalt once out of curiousity (assuming the KO includes the parts) but Freeway looks like one of the best. That said I was...

I think it should also be noted that Nick had a family bereavement in the middle of the run. No. Without wanting to sound like any more of a bastard than I do usually no, no it shouldn't. You know Chris Sarracini's circumstances when he was writing Prime Directive? Eric Holmes' during Megatron: Ori...

Oh God yes Roche is still worth a read for any upcoming; hopefully what seems to be a lukewarm reaction will see that he doesn't get himself into this sort of a mess again. I do feel for him - sequels to acclaimed miniseries are a hard enough business at the best of times and have caught out some of...

None of Sin's seeded properly, is it? It should be an arc in an ongoing or something but we're dropped into this big revelation story about people we've never met and mysteries that we didn't know were mysteries. Springer's origin has never, ever been a big mysterious thing. Hubcap's not an ignored ...

Just read in one sitting. Good but not great and to be honest a moderate reinforcement of IDW's belief Roche isn't a writer. Big jumbly bag of ideas and character arcs but no structure or discipline - a real "hey they might not let me do this again so I better put every idea I've got into it". There...

He gets sidelined while Brainstorm's shoehorned into every single story.
Who is he though?
Masterforce reference I'd surmise - Cancer was the guy who piloted the mech that we got as Squeezeplay.

T2006 will do brisk business, especially if they're really smart and bundle either the IDW film adaptation or a DVD copy of the film in for a first issue freebie. But you're not going to get much nostalgia appeal in War Within or Stormbringer; personally think they should have picked either IDW or M...

Not entirely sure I'm up for forking out £20 on material I already have, especially as behind the scenes stuff will bleed into the Waki, Transformation, etc. and probably actually isn't all that interesting, especially as the guy with a habit of revising history to make himself look more awesome is ...

Platinum Edition Autobot Intel Ops, on sale for £35 at A1 toys. Perceptor - the reason I bought it. Still aged pretty well, nice size and good leg joints mean he'll do okay until a better official one comes along; the faceplate head isn't bad and certainly preferable to the dreadful IDW one we're pr...
