That is Blackout how he appears in Defiance. I thought it was interesting how similar they were.
Wow - the similarity is remarkable!
I think IDW's Blackout could well be a homage to Animated, in addition to making it remind you of the Pave-Low.
Just what I thought when I read Defiance #2
Hey, I really like that! It's similar enough that it has to be a homage rather than a coincidence...y'know, even when Animated does end, I'm rather looking forward to seeing the way its designs and concepts influence TF incarnations to come. We've already seen a Bulkhead tribute in Spotlight Blurr, and a G1 version of the Elite Guard for this year's BotCon set...for a series that pays so much respect to the legacy of its past, it'll be fun to see how much of a legacy it leaves for the future.
Noticed that too when I read the comic, awesome.
The similarities are striking, especially the ones that aren't there.
