    Fantastic! Don's back!

    So, noting the preview page... We see Optimus, and we see Jazz. And we see another bot.

    Now who is this character?

    **COUGH**

    Yeah, the wings on the back and the missile launchers pretty much say "Prowl" too me too.

    Nice to see Don's back to drawing TFs. I know we'll be in for some good artwork on these books (and hopefully, story-wise as well).

    :bay

    Face is a match. I see wings and missiles too. I think you might be on to something.

    It is very cool that Don is back and it is good to see Jazz back. In terms of the third bot, that could be anyone. However, it looks very Prowl-ish.

    I'm sorry but I still prefer Alex Milne's art when it comes to the movie style.

    I do admit th Prowl art is pretty cool looking though.

    Don't care for the Dead Jazz though lol

    Don Figueroa is far & away my favorite TF artist, so I'm glad to see him come back. However, this news about him doing (more) movie related art doesn't really excite me since the movie designs tend to always look the same no matter who's drawing them, and because of that, don't really allow his signature creative liberties or distinct style to shine through. I mean, for as good as the line art itself might be, I'd never know it was Don's work unless I saw his signature on it.

    Still, it's nice to know he's back in the fold and I look forward to seeing some new non-movie related stuff get thrown at us soon.

    There was a post the other day from a new user who's name i forget now but he was saying how he thinks megatron could appear in the movie in flashback form and thats why he a tank and a toy, and if the is a ROTF comic and jazz is clearly there back on cybertron then this must be a flashback image so makes sense.

    an half are saying prowl half are saying trion, gotta say it does look just like trion but its the movie designs and looks kinda like ratchets face too (i know it aint) so it could be anyone lol, maybe its alpha prowl ha

    Actually, even though its title is Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Movie Prequel Defiance, the events of the story take place before the first movie, but the story sets up things for the sequel.

    Don is back? Awesome!

    And we get Prowl, too. (Or possibly Silverstreak/Smokescreen). I wish Don had kept in line with his RoS appearance, though.
