Awesome theory all around. I am still trying to figure it if I should bone up on the G1 tv series or IDWs current run of comics to get a grasp in the upcoming story. IDWS run with Transformers is really long. That is a lot of catching up. Either way they have already succeeded in bringing me into the world of Transformers. The same thing happened to me with TMNT. I was pretty casual with their comic until they crossed over with the Ghostbusters. At that point I was mad dashing to be caught up before the book hit the shelves. I am sure that I am familiar enough with the mythos of Transformers to know what’s going on. This is pretty exciting. ;)
Thanks. But good question. I don't know all that much about Transformers, mostly the basics and I vaguely remember watching G1, the movie (that taught me a swear :P), Beast Wars/Machines when I was young. But from what I heard, IDW is starting the Transformers canon from scratch this year around the same time. I think I recall someone asking Tom about that and he said relatively to the Transformers canon, the story is stand alone. So I guess what we need to know will be told to us in the mini and well, for Dan's easter eggs I'll probably be relying on other people like Kingpin for help...

Oh does that mean that the story will not have a lasting impact on either of the franchise continuities? That's a bummer I have really enjoyed how the Ghostbusters have referenced there meeting with the Ninja Turtles and Vise Versa as both continuities progressed. :) :) :)

Oh well even if the event isn't referenced again, with these little tidbits they have put out has shown me that event is going to be a lot of fun. :) :) :)

They haven't addressed how it will impact the Ghostbusters canon, just a brief tweet reply from Waltz that the Transformer canon part of it is stand alone. They have the same GB creative team, so chances are it will matter to the ongoing GB comics canon going forward. All the past GB crossovers have fed into each other and the ongoing canon.

Tom posted a colored page from Ghosts of Cybertron #1: the Decepticons meet Gozer.

Interesting situation here. Megatron is about to converse with Gozer. Just like Ray did in the film. Could be a coincidence or just Erik being clever, but both characters were voiced by Frank Welker. ;)

The big difference though is I think Megatron would say YES to the God question. LOL!

I am going to enjoy this year so much. :) :) :)

For trade-waiters like me, you can now preorder the 35th Anniversary TPB, on Amazon, here:

https://www.amazon.com/Ghostbusters-35t ... 6F8J5LVTM8
To add to Sayscalled, please for God's sake, don't just trade-wait unless you've exhausted all options and no store near you won't pre-order single issues for you. (And also WTH, no hardcovers yet?)

Tom Waltz posted a panel from the 35th Anniv. EGB comic of the team entering a bar.

I bet Eddie would love it despite the possessed animals. Remember his enthusiasm about the brewery in Crossing Over Issue 4?

To set my own record straight... I don't have a comic shop ANYWHERE near me. For years this was okay, since I thought I grew out of comics. However, on a complete whim, I ordered the first two TPB volumes of the ongoing series from Amazon. I haven't looked back since.

I didn't think it was prudent to order single issues (since I prefer physical over digital anyhow) when they were hard to come by, and you had a thirty day wait (at least) between issues. The TPBs saved space and allowed me to read a whole miniseries, or chunk of an ongoing, at once.

This is why I preorder as soon as Amazon offers the next one, that way it's guaranteed I'll keep up with the IDW GB arcs. Not because I'm anti-comic shop.

Yeah, I'm sure there's a lot more people that have location issues like you. It's unfortunate the life of a comic is still dependent on comic shops ordering the issues.
