    First look at Rodimus, looks a lot like the SDCC Titanium Menasor.
    With a goatee.

    Figured it would be old Cliffjumper who ends up in bizzaro land. Given the preview we got awhile ago about the Transtech comic which said he was with the three club combiner limbs when they dimension hopped, but missing in the transtech universe. Digging evil Hot Rod/Rodimus.

    looks good, Hotrod looks awesome like that, i predictthe price of the Menasor going up now. It'll be interesting to see where Cliffjumper will decide to belong.

    but a part of me is still disapointed the one they posted for April fools day wasn't real. I really dug the G2 comic art style.

    for those that didn't see it, it's in the link below

    i really liked Dezaras in Starsabre colours and Thundercracker in his actionmaster duds

    Yeah, definitely digging that Rodimus. And here I was thinking I'd likely sell him.

    Oh thank god. That other comic while having interesting art, was just so horridly written I was afraid to even comment.

    This shows some promise though. I wonder if Cliffy with new head will be available. And really gives that entryway into this world better than the other.

    This really pales in comparison to the April Fool's comic preview.

    Also note the heavy emphasis on exposition.

    Let's compare:

    Real BotCon comic: "Cliffjumper, you were dead! I last saw you three dozen stellar cycles ago when you got pulverized by Heroatron! There's no way you could have survived that!"

    April Fool's comic: "Shrink-ray."

    Trent Troop and M Sipher FTW.

    Nice art. Interesting that Hot Rod knows Cliffjumper and doesn't suspect anything different about him. I guess that era's Jumper looks the same. I wish we had the other comic, too, but Don's art is beautiful, as always. I have a feeling the story is going to be extremely dark.

    For as big a role as Classics Cliffjumper has been playing in these Club comics, I sure wish they're make one of their exclusives an accurate replacement head for him. Every time I see these comics I think, "boy, Cliffjumper would be great if he actually looked like that..."

    But yeah, I kinda preferred the art style and campiness of the joke comic. Ah well. The Rodimus mold should look nice in black and purple.

    I like the way Cliffjumper and Hotrod reacted, I found the comments about their paintjobs and Hotrod's beard rather amusing. I do wonder though, is Hotrod going to be named Hotrod, or Rodimus?

    I liked the April Fools' Day one better.
    This whole club storyline alternate universe fetish is REALLY kinda dumb to begin with.

    EEEVIIILLL versions of good guys is twice as dumb and overdone.

    Giving them goatees?

    MADE OF FAIL, as the kiddies would say.

    The AFD one gloried in the pure stupid and created a beautiful flower of fun.

    Can we have that one instead?
