    Really annoyed that it's still one girl to a team, though. Like, you couldn't make Ectar or Cindarr or someone a girl?

    Ironhide, NOOOOOO!!!!

    Visionaries is a big nothing to me, all I know is Leoric's the guy in the blue armour and they're magic or something? But gosh darn, if those aren't some purdy designs. Might as well pick this up when it comes out, could have the potential to be an interesting miniseries.

    Nope, just stabbed through the head. A minor flesh wound.

    What was wrong with this? The character some people actually remember from the show.

    It's not a hot dad-slash-barbarian warrior king wearing tribal-looking armor, for one.

    I'll tell you what's wrong with him; dude looks like a news anchor from the 60's wearing homemade Tron cosplay.
    This new IDW Leoric though? Handsome. As. Hell.

    Its not like Transformers where we are continually being given a wide variety of new and old designs simultaneously. I have nostalgia towards the Visionaries show and also M.A.S.K.; I'd read a comic that revives my nostalgia towards the shows but with deeper stories and characterisation.

    I have no nostalgia and therefore no connection towards the new Leoric.

    Well, it's good to hear you admit that the design quality is immaterial and that all you care about is your nostalgia being appeased. It's refreshing!

    WTF? Hasbro is bringing back Visionaries? Oh my god, the memories, the nostalgia. I remember my mum one day bringing me a DVD containing the first (and second? not sure) episodes of the Visonaries. I watched that shit like mad. At that time I had watched Transformers the movie (1986 one) like a million times (I had this one on DVD too). Back on track, I am enjoying Rom vs. the Transformers (as a transformers fan not Rom fan) and if Visionaries vs. the Transformers is a thing, I will read this shit!

    You don't have any memories of THESE Visionaries. None at all. THESE Visionaries only really share a name with the old Visionaries and little else.

    Leoric. Blue-armored heroic leader of the Spectral Knights, who bears the holographic totem of the lion and wields a magical whip. Hails from the world of Prysmos, where he gained his powers from Merklynn.

    That's a pretty good summary of the character, no? Am I talking about the classic version or the IDW version?

    Appearance of a character also counts for a lot when it comes to nostalgia. I'd also say the same things if Leoric had the exact same clothing and hairstyle but with white skin.

    I don't have any nostalgia towards that Ironhide design either, but at least Transformers has the excuse of being able to reformat themselves from their Cybertronian mode to their Earth mode back and forth. This is Ironhide's Cybertronian robot mode, which they didn't bother giving characters in the 80s cartoon and rarely in the Marvel comics. I can still accept Cybertronian Ironhide as being the same character as G1 Ironhide despite not having the iconic windscreen chest, but Leoric and the others. No. I'll stick to my Visionaries DVD if I want to experience Visionaries again out of nostalgia.
