The Decepticons head to Cyberdyne Systems to track down the source of the Terminator that is determined to wipe them out – not realising that, in 1984, they’re several years too early…
Though there’s some decent action scenes and a few amusing callbacks to both Transformers and Terminator lore, some of the art lacks clarity and I found it difficult to tell what was going on in some of the busier scenes. A late stage explosion is confusingly carried out too – I was baffled by what had actually transpired. There’s a cool, paradox-threatening climax, but the action leading up to that is confusing and unsatisfying, as is Sarah Connor’s continual involvement in the battle between Autobots, Decepticons and the Terminator.
It does feel as if the promise of the crossover has been really squandered, unfortunately – with a dull, mostly uneventful storyline so far that doesn’t do anything to justify its existence. It feels odd as an adult to say this, but I had so much more fun with the inventive, colourful My Little Pony/Transformers crossovers than I’m having with the Terminator mashup, which is a dull slog by comparison. With only one issue to go, it’ll have to be truly spectacular to redeem itself; I’m not holding my breath.
