    Awesome. Hopefully IDW does a monster series wrap up book, so I can own their mainline stuff together with the spotlights in a single, huge comic/novel.

    Ryall has confirmed, again, that there will be NO Unicron in IDW books, not for a long time.


    And there WILL be a compendium of the early IDW stuff, hardback and everything, coming in September (I think). It covers Infiltration, Stormbringer, Escalation and the first 5 Spotlights (ie the ones that tie into the Infiltration/Escalation arc).

    I thought they also confirmed there would be no matrix in this universe...

    The official quote was "No Unicron, and no Matrix until we have a really good reason for using it".

    Josh I think.

    I think it's Josh.

    Hmm. I've read the preview pages, and may I ask where you got the idea that Galvatron was the Prime on the first Ark? The orange boxes seem to be Galvatron's narration, and he speaks of Prime like Prime is a whole other person.

    Although, I will admit, it would be one COOL twist if Galvatron was Optimus Prime and that the "ongoing continuity" Optimus Prime was someone else.

    I hope Ratchet's coloring is fixed before it hits print......

    Otherwise, great art. Great tease altogether. :D

    Or at least was a Prime. Doesn't have to be Optimus. That would be a nice twist.

    Normally I think the artwork for IDW's TF releases is beyond awful and overly cartoony, which keeps me from buying their product, but this one looks amazing! Along with Don F., Guido is one of my fav TF artists out there, so I'll definitely be picking this one up without any second thoughts.

    Can't say I'm a fan of GALVATRON with his boring personality traits of "rant" and "destroy", but that's some nice art there.
