Ramjet is to be the last of the current run of spotlights, which began with Kup. So far Blaster, Grimlock and Arcee have been confirmed from the next five. Speculation about the other two...Ratbat, possibly....

its a bit of a shame - Ramjet is the first spotlight i've got no real anticipatory curiosity for, after the crapness of Avengers/TF.

We can still get a Sparkstalker Spotlight. Or a spotlight about Fizzle drinking himself under the table in Maccadam's.

Oh yeah... I'd forgotten about that. I've not been in there since my last comment. I considered leaving it at "you're a ****", but I really can't be arsed.

Though I do love the notion that if Buster's name had been Spike the comic would have automatically been better.

That Scott guy really is a bit strange, just had a chance to read.

Stopped when I got to the bit about Marvel run being crappy from start to finnish.

Which, considering hes posting on SF blog, is a bit daft, does Scott realise Simon wrote a fair whack of the Marvel run?

edit - oh he did, ****.

This Scott guy is insane. Saying Dreamwave had better art and story in its run than IDW should be a sin worthy of damnation.

Are we sure Scott isn't Pat Lee under an alias?

Sounds promising.

Countdown to Scott showing up and telling us Furman's wrong?

interesting that Max is now an Authoritarian, works from a name perspective but quite the shift from the pacifist of g1.

hope he is not some stoopid size...

Heresy! (by three... er two counts!) What is My Family though...? :ididit:

Simon is really patient with Scott. For someone who hasn't posted much on message boards he knows the rules... maybe he has been around under some alias, hmmm... (starts eyeing Predabot) :eek:

Sounds like Arcee might be a fun one-shot. :) I sure hope it's the improved Milne from the last issue of the Megs Origins ( with the same improved colouring, natch) and not Pat Lee fill-in Milne...

Hmm, Big Max is one of my fav' TF's of all time, and this authorative new take on him has me a bit bothered. Does seem a bit out of character, but then again, we'll see how Furmans going to play it.
