Who is where in MTMTE and RID

Postby Terome » Mon Jan 16, 2012 11:31 am

Hello all.

I did one of these a few years ago when the cast began swelling in Furman's run and thought it might be time to pick it up again with the Roberts / Barber books. It's a list of where the cast is at the end of each issue of the ongoing. It's a little bit different from a straight roll-call, and it should help us keep track of who is where and what they were doing.

I'll be coming back to re-edit this starting post periodically. I've done up to More Than Meets The Eye #3 and will be restructuring the lists soon to reflect the fact that the casts are becoming established. Help and suggestions are most welcome! I especially need a hand with describing some of the background NAILs in RID so that we can keep track of them...

Just to add Omega supreme was mentioned in DoOP as not ready for action and being recharged when the protests got out of hand

We don't actually know if Sky Lynx is an Autobot or a NAIL. He could very well be the 'elected' NAIL leader (given that being a figurehead seems to be something that Metalhawk is uncomfortable with in DoOP), which explains his presence watching Roddy and his boys fly off into the sunset.

Thought I saw him on page 16 - when the Decepticons are beating up the protesters, just above Red Alert. Have removed him and replaced him with TFWiki's suggestion of Pounce/Wingspan.

Good point. The only clue right now is Ratchet's line in MTMTE #1, denoting familiarity. I imagine we'll get a solid answer on this pretty soon and I'll change things accordingly.

Thanks, I missed that. I've got a (mentioned) tag after his name to show that he didn't actually appear, and have applied the same tag a bit haphazardly to some other bots who I think were only mentioned in dialogue (Was Mainframe on-panel in MTMTE #1?)

Conjecture admittedly, but given the animosity and tension between the Autobots and the NAILs at this point I doubt Sky Lynx would have been with High Command if he was one. I'm leaning towards Autobot.

But surely the animosity would be perfect reason for NAILs to be there - we only saw a small selection of who was there to witness the launch. Perhaps Skylynx and other NAILs were there, along with Decepticons.

Pipes is shown with the Lost Light crew on the cover of MTMTE #4, and both Bluestreak and Blur are confirmed to appear in RID according to the Underbase interview with Barber, Griffith, and Perez.

Wonder where Warpath is? Havent seen him in a while unless I missed him in Chaos. Great little character. And a great display figure too.

Im sure he would stay on Cybertron although he did like travelling the stars in Revelation. He was part of the crew flying the ark that was attacked by Cyclonus wasnt he?

And he fought against Thunderwing.

2 (+ x (where x = "a variable number between 5 and 7")) for me. That's what it was for MTMTE anyway...
