    I think he's talking about that Cyberton: Balancing Act book that came out last week.

    no. I'm talking about Transformers: Escalation #6. Optimus starts Dying and feels this feeling of terror and dread overwhelming him and we see the head out Nemesis Prime!

    Naw, I'm betting it's Primus.


    Nice how the looks-like-Rodimus-Prime thing is out the window... not.

    Oh ok, sorry. I haven't picked up the issue yet so I was just guessing since I saw Nemesis Prime in that other book.

    Yeah, it looked like the Big Convoy head sculpt, it was only an outline. Nemesis Prime from Universe makes the most sense. But it's out of left field for a G1 book. More so than Sunstorm.

    ...I highly, HIGHLY doubt that is the recolored Big Convoy....though it DID look like him.
    Mammoth-Nemesis Prime is just from the whole Universe shpeel, and quite frankly, it's the kind of headache that Furman would want to avoid, IMO.
    I have a feeling that it's either a new Primus, or it's...some sort of universal...Prime....thingy.
    DAMN YOU FURMAN AND YOUR NEW TAKES ON...STUFF!

    Okay, so thusfar in the IDWverse, we've got:
    -Headmasters
    -Dinobots and Shockwave are around...SOMEWHERE.
    -So is Soundwave
    -LazerBeak and Ravage have appeared
    -Someone is doing HORRIBLE things and created the Machination
    -Sixshot and the damn Reapers.

    ...and soon, GALVATRON.

    What is up with the head-less Sunstreaker bodies? Guess the government is making their own headmasters.

    I doubt it's Primus since, it IS the big Convoy head, and Optimus felt "A sense of dread...terror...an unspoken fear" Yeah that sounds like the most evil of Unicrons spawn to me.

    GREAT issue. Not only did they wrap up the main stroy/fight of this mini, but the set up for the next one as me drooling in anticiaption. When's "Devestation" due out again?

    Best G1 Universe, right here.

    I hope it is U. Nemesis Prime. No mistaking whose head that was, at least mold-wise. And character-wise Nemesis Prime is the only one that makes sense. And just because he was from Universe doesn't mean anything... that backstory doesn't have to be followed here.

    It'll probably be just a manifestation of Prime's deep seated animalistic rage... or something.

    Anyway, great issue overall. I'm going to sit down tomorrow or sometime and reread the whole IDW-verse up to date...

    Welp, based on this isssue, I think I've deduced who the bot woking with the Machination is.

    Scorponok. Should be interesting to see how that turns out. And I second that a Devastaion story arc ought to have Devastator. He was the first real big gun the Decepticons brought in in the past.

    Sixshot is cool, but I'm not liking the whole Reavers story angle.
