Titan Transformers UK issue 4.20, May/Jun 2014.

"Epic final encore!"

Hi all !
Arriving somewhre in the past, the final TRANSFORMERS PRIME issue of the Titan series of Transformers
comics !

Now let's go to the Issue! Slighty bigger because of enhanced outer cover'

Page 00: cover consist of (archive ?) PRIME art of Starscream, and his 'minion'! Free toy is a "Bumblebee
blasterter !" again..... far from original since it's still another variant of the disc shooter/blaster
weapon, but that may change in the future ! You load the projectile into Bumblebee´s stomach and then
launch the little ball by pushing the lever on his back.

Page 02-03: Index Page.
Page 04-05: Transformers 4 Film and Game News page, foreshadowing the future !

Page 06-10: Part one of the the strip begins.

"Starscream´s Beast"
Script: Chris Cooper Art: Andres Ponce Lettering: Comicraft

Who ? Andres Ponce is a penciler and inker for Mirage Studios TMNT, Noble Cause and Firebirds from Image,
TMNT:Fast Forward and Star Wars from Titan Publishing (UK), Bankshot Comics. (actually started with issue
4.19 but I did not review that one.....)

Starscream is miffed with the Predacon Beast complaining that he gets no respect, so he decides to build
his own Beast ! The beast looks very similar to Generation One Tantrum, part of the Predaking combiner.
Starscream then can't seem to control him and not even the Insecticon drones can stop him when he
declares: I am a Supreme Beast and you have been judged unworthy. The sentence is destruction ! be continued on page 20  Great art by Ponce.

After a small standof between Starscream and Tantrum, Starscream tricks him into oblivion. Meanwhile
Predaking has sensed his kin which makes Megatron suspicious. Megatron finds the wreckage and questions 
Starscream. Starscream simply, with the aid of his cctv skills, tricks a decepticon drone into oblivion !
After that he continues plotting......

What a rushed and crap ending.

my standards.
