    Wow, lots of good stuff coming up. Looking forward to the Chaos Theory-era Cybertron arc in MTMTE, and that wasn't Metroplex on the MTMTE annual's cover, but Metrotitan, eh? Interesting.

    Any guesses on who that is standing over Ironhide on RiD #9's cover? The silhouette reminds me of a bunch of characters...

    Is Roberts doing another time-traveling Optimus story, a la his fan novel Eugenesis?

    I do. I think it's Overlord:

    Huh. That's definitely an Overlordish head indeed.

    Possibly. Superion and Bruticus are also two likely candidates, IMO. Superion because the Aerialbots are out in the wilderness, and lots of craziness could have happened to them; Bruticus because that would fit in with the Decepticons trying something that has "bizarre consequences."

    ....I forgot the Aerialbots left into the wilderness.

    That's entirely possible.

    Probably not. Could be that it's a crossover with RiD 6.

    Judging by Optimus is in his Chaos Theory/Autocracy Cybertron body and Sentinel Prime is on the cover, it's looking like time travel or flashbacks (most likely the latter, judging by "Rewind begins telling... the most shocking story...").

    I'm so excited for what IDW has in store. This is the best Transformers fiction we've had in a long time.

    Son of a bitch, that is TOTALLY Superion. I am excited now. I think that's the first time I've ever been excited by the Aerialbots.

    I agree, you can make out what look like a jet nose and wing on the shadow of his left shoulder!

    I REALLY hope that is a typo about the Drift miniseries being in IDW Colllection 7, it's supposed to be the Ironhide miniseries (the Drift mini was in vol 4 IIRC)

    Well they're in the wild. So I say Predaking.

    I take that back since there's no wings.....

    They got tired of the politics and everyone trying to actually work together instead of fighting.

    So if Metrotitan's around, how long before we see Violen Jiger? :dunce  (Funnily enough, the MTMTE annual might actually have Dai Atlas in it)

    I'm really looking forward to that The Art of Fall of Cybertron book, does anybody have an idea for how expensive it will be? Also, I'm looking forward to the IDW Collection Volums Seven, even though I still need to get around to buying the first six...

    Interesting, I wonder what will turn the Aerialbots into a Combiner. About time we see Superion. They were my favorite Combiner group. And I agree, RID and MTMTE is the best TF fiction in this generation period.

    Drifts mini-series was in Vol. 4, this is either Ironhides mini or Galvatrons.

    It should be Ironhide.
