    Nice cover. I can imagine them all going after a rat in that warehouse they shack up in.

    That is hot, way more effective at getting picked up then any of the stock art used on the books/dvd's etc.

    "Roar!!! Buy animated merch now!!"

    My interpretation of the extreme cover poses. (Though very good art)

    Very pleased with the idea of new stories from the animated comic book line.
    Reminds me of how the g1 cartoon and marvel comics had their different perspectives.

    The TFA cover. . .


    NICE!:jawdropper: :thumb  But, I do admit, that due to the angle to which the bots are positioned, I have to twist my head, LOL!!!!

    Wow. They're not only using the cartoons style, but they freaken NAILED it. You couldn't convince me that wasn't promotional material straight from Cartoon Network.

    Wow, that's Matere? That is freakin' SPOT ON, and so different from his other art it makes it all the more impressive. Awesome.

    What would be cool would be if we could then get a cover to mirror this one with the Decepticons on it. That would be awesome!

    Love the cover, it's spot on to the show designs.

    He nailed the style!

    I thought Ratchet was missing his broken crest at first, but upon closer inspection, it's there.

    The art is dead-on but a little boring it just looks like a screen shot or something.

    I'll Nth the "Matere Rocks" sentiment -- that art looks perfectly in line with the Animated promo stuff. Awesome!

    From the thread title:
    ZOMG SPY ART :p  :D
