    Dreadwing has been a confirmed character for quite some time now but little information has actually been released about him. How do you think they will treat his character? Will it be a hamage to his G1 or some other incarnation? Will it be a new take on the character but still have the traits that his former incarnations had? Or will it just be a name-slap with no likeness to any past incarnation of the character?
    Or is it possible that Dreadwing will not appear and this is the same situation as Silverbolt in DOTM?

    -> I doubt it'll be a DOTM Silverbolt situation, as he was confirmed to be appearing at NYCC.

    -> Relevance to previous incarnations? I can't really say. Not that familiar with the character(s).

    -> I recall reading something a while back that suggested Dreadwing was neither Autobot nor Decepticon. My guess is that he links up Starscream, and possibly some other rogue Bots/Cons as well.

    i'm hoping it's a homage to the g1 version, but that would be two characters (dreadwing is the combined jet form of dreadwind and darkwing) or at least a homage to dreadwind, he hasn't had a new toy/form since g1 other than botcon, and i want another toy of him, whether it's in prime style or not.

    I do love the show. But I kinda want my (eventual) Voyager Skyquake and Starscream to hav a shelf-mate...

    I love the idea of DW teaming up with Starscream...

    Maybee he's like IDW Thundercracker? A seeker?

    And I even love the idea of a duo of rouge Cons merging to form a single big bot!

    These are great ideas!

    Either way, the Candyman -Fallen voice will be killer!

    I think a nihilistic scientist would work well.

    But please, please be an Osprey. Even if that was bunk data, that'd keep with Prime not sticking to the norm with alternate modes.

    Perhaps Dreadwing will be like a double agent working for Shockwave or Starscream to bring down Megatron from the inside of the Decpticon army. Or maybe he could be one of Starscream's Seekers that answered his formar Seeker commander call for a new army and be his second in command.

    I still believe he's gonna try and pledge his allegience to Starscream by pissing Megatron off.

    In the Movie Comics Dreadwing is a drone that gained sentience. Maybe a Vehicon Flyer will become Dreadwing.

    I hope that he's kinda like Sideways, in that he's a Herald of Unicron and he manipulates both the Autobots and the Decepticons in the process of serving his master.

    He could try to get Unicron out of stasis, so that the Chaos Bringer won't end up being a 1-time villian.

    Well Tony Todd did say "he was complicated". I hope he's something like this or Starscream's new BFF kinda like BB was to BWII Starscream.

    He should be a retool of Skyquake but as a B-2 Bomber.

    I agree I'd like Starscream to show up with his seekers and kick some ass. :thumbs2:

    I wouldn't be surprised if he is somehow aligned with The Fallen.

    I only hope that Dreadwing's design is completely new, because there's nothing about the old Dreadwings I like, at all.

    My guess is a mix of old and new since that seems to be how the show has done other characters so far.

    I'm guessing he may have something to do with Starscream. He might be some kind of bounty hunter or mercenary, who works for the Autobots, Decepticons, and Starscream's side, depending on the circumstances. He's "the mysterious dude", and may in fact be working for the Fallen or something, which would be weird because Tony Todd is working for a guy who used to also be Tony Todd.

    What if Tony Todd is really voicing the Fallen? and Dreadwing is a cover name?

    I personally hope that he will end up on Starscream's team, along with eventually Skywarp, Thundercracker, and Slipstream.
