    Not much in the way of Transformers talk, but there were a few pieces of info.

    Confirmation that there will be more Evolutions series:

    And we get this nice new Spotlight Arcee art. This may be page 1 of the Spotlight, as the file name from CBR was ACpg01_colors_b.jpg.

    ARCEE is officially sick and tired of all the fans bashing female Transformers can't you tell?

    That is what happens to those who doubt her awesomness.

    More Evolutions have me interested.

    Arcee however is lame. She will always be lame no matter how "cool" you try and make her by giving her a sword.

    The art is fantastic, but psyhco-sword-weilding-fembots just seems a little too... un-original?

    Now if she was just psyhco, that'd be okay. But giving her a sword (looks like two, there's a hilt on her back) is just overkill in a bad way.

    Swords are overdone and frankly, sorta useless when everyone has guns.

    Whoah, Arcee really looks out of her mind there! Don't know if that's a good or bad thing for her really.

    More Evolutions? That's got my curiosity going.

    Well, nice to hear about evolutions, read part of it but didn't catch the end. Arcee though is a nab when i see it though. Bet that bot will think twice before pissing her off during her "time of the megacycle" :p

    While the concept of Evolutions is pretty cool, I didn't find the execution on Hearts of Steel to be all that interesting. I mean, if Big Megs were helping Hitler or something, maybe that would be....nah. Never mind.

    Anyone else think it's lame to try and make a character interesting by making them an anti-hero? Arcee was never an angry sword wielding psycho. To make a character cool, especially a female character in a mostly male setting, you don't need to make her a maniac. Arcee had her kick ass momments, but she certainly doesnt need this kind of dark background story crap. Split lip is right, give us somthing original, not yet another sword wielding angst ridden crazy person.

    This guy didn't do the "new" Sentinel designs for X-Men awhile back, did he? You know, the colorful ones that were mashups of Gundams, Eva's and Big-O? The mecha design style seems similar here. Maybe its just the coloring though.

    I like the feet and chest/torso area.
