WHAT KEPT YOU?
That art... blech.
I'm glad Furman is back writing Transformers.
I'm less excited that it's a continuation of the Marvel G1. We had our Marvel-verse ending. It was called G2.
I'd like Furman to write a completely different take on Transformers. I think that's what made his War Within and Armada/Energon stories more interesting.
I think that cover's SPECTACULAR art wise.
Loved Wildman back in the day and love him today when he's hitting on all cylinders. Very cool looking.
And the original Marvel comic will always be the best Classic TF universe to me. Can not wait for this continuation!
-ZacWilliam, hope the inside art is as cool as this cover.

Transformers: Regeneration One #81
Simon Furman (w) • Andrew Wildman & Stephen Baskerville (a) • Wildman, Guido Guidi (c)
The TRANSFORMERS comic that began it all—is back. With a vengeance! 21 years have passed since CYBERTRON was restored to its former glory, and finally there is peace. But, after millions of years of bitter civil war, can all ever truly be one? In a conflict this primal, this epic and far-reaching… There are always “Loose Ends”!
Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye Ongoing #7
James Roberts (w) • Alex Milne (a) • Milne, Nick Roche (c)
DECEPTICON MONTH! The war’s over — but no-one told the DECEPTICON Justice Division! Meet the five deadliest DECEPTICONS in the galaxy. Their sole purpose: to hunt down and kill anyone who has ever disobeyed MEGATRON. Who’s their next target?
Transformers: Robots in Disguise Ongoing #7
John Barber (w) • Brendan Cahill (a) • Andrew Griffith, Casey Coller (c)
DECEPTICON MONTH! Fan-favorite character TURMOIL returns from the dead—but what does he want on CYBERTRON? The AUTOBOTS don’t want another DECEPTICON on their planet and the DECEPTICONS don’t want things to get any worse… but what Wheeljack discovers about the DECEPTICON warlord will change everything!
Wow the MtMtE solicit and cover almost gives me the shivers. That sounds amazing. And it features the full return of real Cons to the book.
That RG1 cover is pretty awesome too. Best piece by Wildman I've seen on this series yet. VERY excited.
-ZacWilliam, wondering if any of the five will be folks we know...
Man IDW has been really hitting them out the park since the new ongoings. I wonder if the 5 Cons are new characters or existing ones. And Turmoil back from the dead? This outta be good. Looking forward to Regeneration! Maybe the 13 will s how up?
Honestly, I would LOVE to see a toy of him. Heck - Hasbro could probably get away with a WFC Onslaught or Brawl redeco.
I would really hope so.
I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess Lockdown's among their number.
All these on the month of my birthday?
IDW you shouldn't have!
Was he with the Cons in the Drift mini? I can't remember.
Yeah; he was the guy tracking down Drift. Thus my guess.
I wonder if they'll have anyone with more tracker-based altmodes in this group, like say Carnivac.
Normally I would assume it from the get-go. Only reason I wonder is because that(very awesome) sigil-headed Con on the cover doesn't strike any memory bells.
Carnivac crossed my mind as well. And we know Roberts is a Marvel UK fan.
Am also wondering who they're hunting. Doesn't seem to be any likely suspects among the crew. Though there are a few unaccounted for big name Cons out there in IDW I imagine they'd want to speak to.
-ZacWilliam, can think of 4 in particular they'd likely want a word with...
Ah okay. For some odd reason I thought he was just working with those aliens to capture slaves. My memory is off lol.
Sooooooooooooooo excited, god I can't wait because all of the comics sound amazing!
Wait... why is Megatron's helmet gray? The Marvel Megatron has the distinction of being the G1 Megatron with the black helmet...
EDIT: Then again... it's the same color as his fusion cannon... so maybe it's ok.
They've said they're using the quirky old Marvel colors for all flashbacks, but using "corrected" colors for the modern story.
-ZacWilliam, don't see why they didn't stick to the Marvel colors for the whole thing, but it has been 21 years, which is a lot of time "in story" for folks to change some.
Zac, do you think we'll see anything about the 13 here?
Lockdown, Carnivac, Weirdwolf, Fangry and someone else?
Separate names with a comma.
