The Shockwave - Scorponok battle reminded me of All This And Civil War 2.
I noticed a few art mistakes, if the cover is page 1 then on page 8 there is the word "TEXT" on show in the bottom right panel, on page 17 Shockwave has a hand instead of a gun barrel on the left arm in the centre panel and on page 20 there are two panels where Shockwave has a straight gun barrel.

He could have bent it straight again.
Page 16 has the dialogue "Everyone agreed?" coming nonsensically from Shockwave, and the "Earlier..." on page 13 should be two panels later. The issue also suffers from the same inconsistent artwork style thing as last issue.
But as someone not collecting IDW beyond this series, I liked the way everything was tied up neatly, and it was more upbeat than it looked like being, judging from #4.
I liked the fact Shockwave remained the most powerful in battle and defeated Scorponok. It was the proper outcome in my opinion. Wasn't so keen on how little the other three Dinobots seemed to care about what happened to Sludge. But liked Grimlock's ending, where he took responsibility in a new way for him.
Snarl quoted Shakespeare from 'Henry V'. God knows where he picked that up from, but good for him.
And I got my full set of Nick covers without having to look beyond FP Cardiff, hurrah!
Really enjoyed this issue (and the series overall) though I found the mixing of artists more jarring than last. Shame it looks to be the last of enjoyable IDW Transformers now that AHM has messed things up.
Finally got a hold of this issue thanks to a certain Mr Bax (much appreciated good sir!). Really enjoyed it, even despite the little mistakes mentioned. Editorial really should have picked up on them. Hopefully, they'll be rectified in the trade.
