    Both writers have really unlocked the inherent “humanity” of these characters, and I find it extremely entertaining.
    Subtle jab at Costa's infamous interview from about a year ago?

    I thought the IDW stuff was great until I picked up a few issues of Dreamwave's cancelled TF ongoing recently. Those were REAL Transformers comics. IDW's stuff are just comics with Transformers in them. Dreamwave's "Brad Mick" really nailed each Transformers personality instead of rewriting them like James Roberts had to do. IDWs crap is highly, highly overrated.

    I wasn't into the comics then - can you give me a little summary?

    That's a matter of opinion.

    Hmm if Hasbro Corporate is liking this IDW stuff,,, does that mean we might see some Lost Light toys down the line?

    wish list:
    Whirl
    Swerve (with voice chip that you can't shut off)
    Action Masters: Rung (unless we ever see his alt mode), Rewind, Necrobot, Ambulon, Vos and Fulcrum
    Chromedome (I'd like a new mold, but they could probably to a re-tool to one of the dozens of Movie BB toys out there)
    Misfire
    Tarn
    Metal Hawk
