    Either Shockwave or the firetruck. What a cool looking cover though, really gives you a sense of the power, scale and awe associated with the robot.

    Ok I admit.....I pissed myself a bit.

    I'm calling Shockwave, and if it is then I can just hear the "WTF HIZ GUN ARM IZ ON DA RONG SIED!!!" complaints.

    Jeez, if that is Shockwave that is one big ass gun arm.

    It's a cool looking silhouette whoever it is.

    Or we're looking at his sillouette from behind...

    Looks pretty cool in sillouette either way and it looks like he's at least got his g1-style head.

    Don's new Megatron is...interesting. The Fusion Cannon I thought at first was a sword. Shockwave in the prequel is cool, but unsure if I'll pick either of the prequel comics up yet.

    G1 looking head: Win
    Gun arm: Win

    Now all Shockwave needs now is to be purple then he'll be perfect.

    we've already seen his full g1 style head

    [​IMG]

    What we can make out of his design reminds me quite a bit of Nizzi's TF2 prime concepts:

    Oh yeah! Though he'll probably end up being silver/gray.

    That's epic. Glad they're not trying to hide his form like they were with Megs and the Fallen for ROTF. Looks pretty awesome!

    Shockwave = EPIC WIN FOR MICHAEL BAY, i believe this has redeemed him.

    IDW G1 Megatron = Awesome, and now he has an Alt mode he can use!!!

    please see the image i posted above.

    1. we know what his head design looks like
    2. he is purple, not silver/grey

    Here's the image with the piece of the puzzle slotted back in:

    [​IMG]

    Also he's clearly a nizzi design, here's another example of nizzi's work:
