    Same here. They're great actually seeing the toys in action actually doing stuff. Imagination is one thing but isn't it just as fun to read a comic?

    There's that picture with Megatron on his knees. Who are those other figures? One looks like traditional G1 Megatron. The others have very Megatron-y heads.

    They all look Megatron in different forms.
    Is he going insane or having a vision?

    This looks to be really impressive. I also like the idea of a Starscream origin series too. I would like to see SS as a scientist in the beginning.

    Definetely interested in both Megatron: Origin and the Kup spotlight.

    Reading the answer from both writers, makes me think both stories seem to be in capable hands. Hopefully, they deliver.

    A good point is brought up in the interview: the incredible inconsistency in the Transformer Universe. If it hasn't been done yet by Furman or others, I wouldn't mind seeing a storyline that rewrites the Universe so that it doesn't contradict itself. This was George Lucas' biggest strength - having control over what happens in the Star Wars Universe to keep it consistent. Too bad there wasn't a Transformers Czar at the beginning, but who knew it'd blow up into what it is now? In the beginning, it was just a bunch of dudes wanting to make money from a cool toy concept. Kinda don't blame them for overlooking this aspect.

    Maybe I should shut up now. This was supposed to be about Megatron. I gotta finish this stupid paper anyway. If I only had this much emotion to type about this boring research topic.....

    Well one of the things I think that's very relevant to the characterization of Megatron is the exploration of his motivation. Personally, I don't think it's as much needed, but it will [hopefully] make for a good story. I've always been cool with the idea that Megs is just tyrannical for whatever reason. I think it's totally feasible for a character to think that he and his faction have some sort of "right" to power over the whole universe, but it's just the fact that IDW is doing things such as this to attempt the whole journey of Megatron's character that I am enjoying. :)
