And this is the point where I start wanting this to happen over the course of Dark Cybertron. Heck, with the war essentially over, it would be cool to have some Ex-Decepticons join the crew of the Lost Light! Great job on this, and the fact that I already see these two becoming fast friends from your work really speaks to your talent and ability!
You know, in the early planning stages for MTMTE, Roberts did plan to have some Decepticons on the Lost Light (Soundwave, Ravage and Mindwipe, I think it was), but ended up not included them because John Barber basically called dibs to use them in RID. So here's hoping we'll see some Cons join up by Dark Cybertron's end.
Well Soundwave I can understand for RID, especially due to his current big role in the Dark Cybertron plot and the events leading up to it, but I personally would love to see Mindwipe or another "shifty" Decepticon join up with Rodimus' crew, like Swindle and Dirge, which would make sense because with the way Starscream's "protection" of them has probably gone with the progress of Dark Cybertron so far, in fact Starscream himself may find himself exiled to the Lost Light from Cybertron by the end. Who knows? But I agree, IDW does give the fans a lot to look forward to with the way they write the stories. (Though I do wish the Scavengers were a little more prevalent.)
