    For some reason this reminds me of the hate plague from the G1 cartoon. Is this the movie Decepticon logo?

    Yeah, it's the squinty-eyed logo from the movie.

    Looks like it to me. It almost seems like the Movie Decepticon logo has replaced the old one, as the one's on the Animated toys look more like it than the traditional logo. I'm guessing this is another hint at the mirror-universe theme that is the current speculation for Botcon 2008.

    With this logo being the movie logo, it's possible this could be in regards to the continuing movie comics that were announced (and haven't heard much about lately).

    My guess, however, is that it has something to do with the outcome of Devastation. The title of the file is "TF_HAIL_Teaser1.jpg", which makes me think the Decepticons somehow come out victorious against the Autobots, Reapers, and/or any human force.

    Ooo, I hope it's about the movie universe. You can never have too many comics about that, I always say.

    And Furman's answers to the questions are very, VERY intriguing. Looking forward to another great year of TF comics!

    I'm guessing that IDW and Botcon are going to have similar themes this year. From the teasers for Botcon it looks like they're doing some kind of Bizarro World story. (Optimus Prime as a ruthless evil warlord! Starscream as a dependable, loyal friend! Grimlock as a Rhodes Scholar!)

    Yuck! The Movie decepticon sign is awful! The eyes part looks so small.

    I kinda prefer it, to the raised 3D traditional ones anyway...

    Doubt IDW would be doing a "mirror universe" storyline in their main line.

    It's nice when a teaser image can bring so many possibilities to mind.

    However, I'm a little disappointed because when I saw the logo on the main page, I was hoping it was more Botcon info.

    No they don't. Of the Animated test shots we've seen thus far, both Starscream and Lockdown use the traditional big eyed Decepticon logo.

    They should redesign the Animated faction symbols with giant chins.

    Grudge match featuring the Dinobots? Can anybody say Predacons vs. the Dinobots? I wonder if it will be before they're made into combiners or after.

    Ok, yeah, I just got to looking at them, and you're right. Well, they look better to me for some reason then.

    It probably goes to that Starscream v Megatron loyalists power struggle thing to set up the movie sequel

    I don't see what the big deal about the 'Con symbol is. I think both versions look fine, though the movie one seems a bit more of a dark symbol.
