Transformers/Terminator crossover

The IDW Comics universe has had such a different take on G1, one that's now significantly represented by the Generations toys, so they share a forum. A modern take on a Real Cybertronian Hero. Currently starring Generations toys, IDW "The Transformers" comics, MTMTE, TF vs GI Joe, and Windblade.

I want to like this more than I expect to.

The high concept is that Skynet sends T-800 back in to protect humanity from Transformers, thus allowing for Skynet to exist in the future.

I'll definitely check it out. Ghostbuster/Transformers was... a thing that existed. It wasn't great, but I didn't hate it. There were some interesting ideas there, even if the beats were off.

Okay. We are holding you to that. (You can be the guinea pig for this one.)

I'm ok with that. I also enjoyed the Star Trek/Transformers crossover so... I'll hold out hope.

Have you seen the thread about IDW's sales (in the misc forum)?

The general impression is that IDW is in trouble. (Discussed in detail there. But, product is shipping late, being resolicited and such.) Cheap cross-overs fit with that over-all impression.

On the "Terminator" side, I cannot speak to the license holder. But, the franchise itself is in trouble.
