saw that one... I guess we'll be expecting Starscream to make an appearance.

Is this comic likely to be a spoiler for Movie 2?? I thought the WGA is still on strike??

My guess would be that the book will feature current extra toys (like the Scouts and some of the deluxes) and that it will end with a return to the status quo in time for the second movie.

+1. Which is pretty sad actually b/c it makes buying the book almost worthless. Hopefully they make the journey more interesting than the destination and make it something worthwhile to remember.

+1 here too, I expect everything that happens in Movie based Comics to be completely disregarded by the TF2 writers, making these comics more of a "what-if" style series.

I hope it's not a what-if story.

I would prefer an expanded universe story that is in-canon but doesn't disrupt the 'main' continuity (i.e.: returns everything to status-quo by the end). We've historically had some pret-ty freaking awesome stories that were produced as "peripheral" stories -- just look at the Time Wars! It's absolutely in-canon yet didn't disrupt mainstream (US) G1 continuity (because it only killed off characters that didn't appear in the US comics).

I would greatly prefer something like that - something that attempts to fill in the gap between movies 1 and 2.

I hope so. I didn't bother with the prequel or movie adaptation comics, but if this focuses on Starscream and includes the likes of Longarm, Dropkick, Wreckage, Armourhide, Swindle etc I'd be all over it.

I enjoyed reading the prequel comics - IMO they do enrich the movie in some regards... like finding out how the Autobots lost the AllSpark Cube, how and why Bumblebee lost his voice etc.

The movie adaptation comics were crap-in-a-hat though... don't waste your time reading those (also there's one part that I suspect may conflict with movie 2 continuity).
