    Okay, for serious, why is BB's face blue? And C'mon, peace sign? BB nor Sari strike me as very peace-sign-ish. They seem more like thumbs-uppers.

    I'm really excited for All Hail Megatron.


    Lugnut looks freaking hilarious.

    "Realistic" style doesn't really work for the Animated cast. Also Sari looks about six years too old. She's only meant to be 10!

    Decent art, it just doesn't work considering the subject.

    Well, to give him credit, I think that that Alex Milne pic has her a few years older.

    He's got one with a teenage Sari as well.

    I might have to get that cover - I like his take on the Animated cast.

    Though to be honest, I'm kinda more psyched about the solicit for Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog. Scourge and Metal Sonic FTW!

    When I first saw the BB and Sari pic, I thought BB was trying to get with her.

    But with recent revelations, he may just have a shot. =)

    I didn't think that was suppose to be a a cover.
    I thought it was just fanart when he posted it on his DA page awhile ago.

    I do like this one more then the one he made of Starscream.
    Which is without The Chin.

    That realistic looking cover of Sari and BB look kinda doujinshi to me... more than a little disturbing :(

    I've merged that and the Autobot one to make myself a new desktop. The combined art is awesome!

    I also love the Doubledealer cover, the playing card design really reflects the character nicely.

    Not too keen on Milne's cover, that just doesn't fit Animated IMO. Boss on the others, especially Doubledealer.

    Sari on animated is a horrible horrible character...perhaps more than most of the animated characters themselves. I think the "realistic" look for animated looks very good, and shows what animated could have been. Perhaps, it could help to make many animated naysayers actually like series.

    I thought I might step in and shed some light on the Sari/BB cover.

    That pic was submitted to Alex Milne's Dev art accoutn several months ago and was not planned as a cover. I'm guessing they just liked it and thought "Hey let's use that as a cover!"

    And he purposefully made Sari older.
