    YES this series looks AWESOME. Also did anyone notice how rumble or frenzy is just as tall as starscream? Did that happen a lot in the originals series?

    Uh... yeah... scale wasn't always super consistant.. :) 

    I spy with my little eye JIHAXUS... and robots oozing from the crust of Cybertron... G2 references, folks...

    I think this is the first explicit promise that G.B. Blackrock will feature in ReGeneration One.


    I'm very happy. :) 


    (Is "Circuit Smasher" intended to be Circuit Breaker? I know Marvel owns the character, and thus wouldn't have even thought that a name change would be sufficient to pass legal...)

    So G2 still happened? Huh. Neat. Unless those pages are like saying "LETS GO BACK IN TIME AND THEN THIS HAPPENED INSTEAD!"

    Oh yeah. I think Omega Supreme was the worst offender (sometimes he towers over everyone, as he should, other times he's the same height as Blaster).

    Well, I interpreted that bit of "spawning" as the history of Cybertron (as established in G2) may well be the same. And I notice the Jhiaxus exists. But while those are elements of G2, I don't think we're saying that "G2 happened."

    Did they ever say whether this was an ongoing series, or just a temporary return to the Marvel-verse?

    #81-100 would actually be 20 issues, and #80.5 would make it 21.

    Simon Furman is on record saying that #100 will bring it all to a definite conclusion. It's a final return to the original to tie up all the plot points and finish off the continuity AFAIK.

    Extremely happy to see this coming to fruition. Artwork looks great, and the news about the names and series being acknowledged in the the story is really building my anticipation to pick these issues up as soon as they hit stands. Good to have you back Mr. Furman and Mr. Wildman!

    Why can't they continue with the cartoon? Right after the second golden age.
