    Just got these two tonight, and they are very well done.

    Here is their comic book pages captured using a digital camera. I have also added some pics of the actual figures for final production color reference. Smokescreen's blue is very nice.

    25 Cybertrons vs 7 Destrons

    I think Megatron has a fighting chance.

    Red Alert is very sexy! Little disappointed by the light blue on Smokescreen but still pretty good.

    Cant wait for these to arrive.

    Octane is the man. His transformations are grand. I can tell he's a kind of obnoxious bounty hunter from his robot poses and clearly a bounty hunter from the computer display order+ the cubes offered as payment. But I'll get back to that in a bit. The triple changers are rather out of scale in these comics.

    What clinches it is how henkei megatron welcomes him with energon cube ready. Its such a silly decepticon party moment. Cyclonus applauding as well.
    I guess megatron needs all the troops he can get.

    Note : Red Alert's lightbar can pivot 360 degrees, kind of a little rocket pack effect if you spin it upside down in robot mode.

    Technically there are 28 Cybertrons and 14 Destrons (7 retail releases, 1 USA Edition, 5 exclusives, and Ravage). That's not counting Jolt or Nightstick.

    I think the blue on Smokescreen looks great, and not too light like some other pictures.
