    Dang... that's a nice looking cover on that comic. Such a shame I won't be able to make it to BotCon to get a copy of that.

    Looks awesome. For a second I thought it was The Baroness on a bike.

    Can HE do the designs for the next TF cartoon?

    Nice.
    I like that Knockout is there. Maybe they will have a bike like that in vehicle mode for her in the movie.

    If IDW wants to sell more books, they should put Don on the main book. Or every book for that matter. This is a buy for me even if I have to pick one up through ebay.

    I'm arguably one of Don's biggest and most loyal fans, but as I have said before when it comes to his work with Movie related stuff, this just really isn't doing anything for me. Nothing about it says "Don!" and could have just as easily been done by any random hired hand with no one being any the wiser when they looked at it. But I don't blame Don for it - it's the parameters he has to work in with this visual style, and if this kind of stuff is what he's happy doing now, all the power to him.

    I'll patiently wait for the return of his war torn, battle damaged, insanely detailed blocky G1ish styled bots striking spectacularly cool poses... :)

    Nice art. Don is one of the best tf artists out there!

    I however do agree that Don is better at his usual G1 type designs. Movie stuff is more on Milne i would think
