    So, this would be the cover turned down by Hasbro for being too retro, then? (Details here.)

    Also, hooray for more LioConvoy!!

    In the same post I linked above, Ryall mentioned that Megatron: Origin #1 is pushed back to (hopefully) mid-June. So #3 is probably correct.

    Yeah. To be fair to Hasbro, I can see why (even if it is better than I can draw Prime). Still hope Ryall will be able to get it printed inside the issue.

    BTW, I read on the IDW board that Don Pearlman is 78!

    I took it from the tone of his post that we'd instead get two Megatron: Origin comics that month-- "And we'll be back on track after that."

    Also, the solicitation seems like it'd be for the final comic in that miniseries, though of course you never can be sure.

    Cool overall, but I'm diggin' the old-school Perlman Prime (though I wish it had more of a technicolor feel) and I'm getting the feeling that Magmatron's actions in the new BW series will fit very nicely with his BM bio...

    NICE! All over the 2 Beast Wars things as I've been waiting for more of that stuff. That Optimus Prime spotlight also looks interesting.

    Yeah! Me either! :lol 

    Did we miss a memo or something? :confused:

    The BM Megatron fanboy in me wants to see this "terrifying apocalypse" turn out to be the Vehicon coup, but knowing all the anti-BM bias, it probably won't be.


    I also wouldn't mind seeing Magmatron fit the role given to him in his Dinobot tech specs.

    Screw Lio Convoy. Gimme Big Convoy!! Either way, I'm really excited for the new Beast Wars book. I really enjoyed the first series. I do hope they flesh out Op Minor this time. It'd be cool.

    *Does goofy looking happy dance.* :D 

    Yeah I'm wondering about that too. Since in the comics the events of the great TV show are considered fact maybe the Vehicon uprising will happen, then again with IDW's universe having NO Unicron and their Galvatron having no relation to Megatron
    anything is possible.
