Overall another solid issue. The idea of a theme issue is great, I hope you do more of them. Not sure of one I would recommend, but it's a cool idea and this one worked well.

Based on the content it's obvious a lot of work goes into producing these. I don't read every article thoroughly, as certain sections don't particularly interest me (generally not into customizing or dio-stories for example, though in the future I may try customizing and the articles provide a nice reference), but there's enough there for me to enjoy the issue.

Only one bit of constructive criticism. A pet peave of mine is people using "of" instead of the " 've " contraction. For example from the first page "You may not of noticed..." should be "You may not've noticed...". I mention it since it's occurred a couple times now, and little things like that detract from the over all great job. Perhaps an additional proof-reader or editor would help? I'd offer my not-so-qualified services if I wasn't too busy with work and school. :) Of course it's a pet peave of mine, so it stands out to me. Maybe not as much to others. Anyways, please take this as constructive, not as a slag. As I said the issues are pretty darn good overall!

I look forward to the next one.

Haha, Darth, I have to admit that I'm a bit of a grammar nazi, myself.  Though, not always a vocal one.

And I totally agree:  the themes are DEFINITELY a great idea!  Lots of potential, too - the "Joe" issue, the "Cobra" issue, the sub-Forces Issue, the up-up and away flying toys issue... 

I look forward to the rest

Hehe, me being a referred to as a grammar nazi is kinda funny. Hopefully my comments are taken as they're meant; as friendly criticism. :)

Yeah, sub forces could be fun for themes (Tiger Force or Python Patrol, even if I'm not a fan of repaints), or elemental themes like water, arctic, air, desert etc.
