    This has been pointed out several times elsewhere, but that Waspinator is not from G2, but is the Machine Wars Skywarp/Thundercracker mold.

    For comparison:http://www.tfu.info/1997/Decepticon/Skywarp/skywarp.htm

    You can see that the arm patterns are the same.

    I'm seeing that the Divebomb repaints are decidedly absent from that pic... then again, so is Tigatron...

    Anyways, looks very nice.

    Actually, I can't tell if that one character is Cheetor OR Tigatron. Still, with Cheetor's otherwise absence, he's the most likely candidate.....

    You're right. I've even seen it noted as the MW Skywarp mold in other threads, I just typed that initial post so quickly I didn't stop to think too hard about it :)

    I wonder if the comic will show any of the "predacon" maximals like Blackarachnia and Inferno?

    Doubtful, considering they were protoforms. Then again, I can't explain the presence of the Tigatron toy either.

    It depends on how you look at protoforms. I think they were factory shipped blanks to be used to "seed" other planets and study them, or something like that. It could also be an efficient method of transporting a large crew. Either way, Op really screwed up by losing all those pods (and thus, crew). :D

    Looks very nice. Kinda wish I could go, but I can't afford to go to Botcon, so... *shrugs*

    I noticed they gave Rattrap a new head in the comic, because that sure isn't Ransack's.


    *Off-Topic* Love the sig, Peaugh. :thumb
