Allright, this review's a bit late but beter late than never, right ?
I recieved this comic by post sometime last november and I will get right into it!
- Transformers Prime missile launcher. Yay!(sarcasm) another foam missile to be launched from a squeeze activating plastic tube variation, but then again I am not the main demographic and I can imagine the kids loving this. I received by mistake another copy of issue 4.1 and gave it to my nephews and they were both very happy with it.
This is a Transformers Prime comic.
A full cover featuring PRIME promo art of Megatron with a firery background
The Index page isn't really that exciting.....so I'll skip that !
On Page 04, we get an introduction to the PRIME human characters, a missing piece puzzle and on Page 07 the the strip begins.
Scripting by Etherington and surprisingly strong art by Domingues, Sari is badgering Prime for a juicy tale about Megatron, prevebly of him going postal or ape as she calls it. It's not quite what she gets.
The strip is interrupted on Page 11 by a psp ad and part 2 of the PRIME episode guide, reviewing Darkness rising part 2. Also a micro quiz:
1 Who becomes a zombie robot ?
2 Which Autobot smashes a piece of Ratchet's equipment ?
3 Who blows up the energon mine ?
Thankfully, the answers are on the same page ;) followed on the next page by a 'game of the goose' style board game and, I have to say, an excellent TFPrime Megatron poster.
Page 18 has a competition to win the Dark of the Moon dvd and page 19 has a Kre-o transformers competition
Again followed by 2 competitions to win, the Transformers UK 2012 Annual and Mars-The Ultimate adventure book !
Another puzzle on Page 22 but Page 23 is part 2 of the strip! Prime reveals that Megatron's actions had him so distracted that Megatron manages to rescue his squad and detonate a bomb with repercussions for Optimus Prime.
followed by the letterpages, hosted by Megamouth Megatron (PRIME version) with a little help from Arcee (also PRIME version).
Starscream's wordsearch is on Page 30 with next issue and kre-o ads on Pages 31 and 32
Conclusion: I really liked the strip, unexpected character development for Megatron which I think is rarely seen in a kids comic.
score: 7 out of 10
...next time...the Xmas issue....got it today, review soon!
