Just read #2,3. One thing not pointed out in the story is Hellbat having face plate & then Grit headbutts him & next time we see him he doesn't have faceplate. So guess it must have been damaged but nothing in the story to state that. You'd expect a passing line. Just need to get #1,4 be good if I get them for 50p each too
also you could make a Hellbat toys from TFP Soundwave (with Laserbeak) or Starscream
Shane McCarthy has one Transformers plot, and he uses it over and over. Drift loses all the character he gained over in MTMTE, Gigatron could be anyone, Hellbat is wasted and Vanquish is a continuity SNAFU. Grit effectively becomes Drift!
Sound fun? Then Drift: EoS is right up your street.
I don't even dislike McCarthy at this point. His writing is such epic blandness that he just no longer registers.
