    Wow, Rattrap in RiD is an unexpected surprise. With him and Waspinator now running around, I'm crossing my fingers for Tarantulas to be brought into IDW at some point, personally.

    I think something very big is planned\going around in MTMTE and most of us haven't realized it yet.

    I think that's because the plot for it has been all over the place, to the point I had almost forgotten what they had actually set out to do.
