    Did you guys see the very last thing? They have the rights to Speed Racer. They're going to do comics based on both the new series and the original. That's awesome!

    Seems like IDW has become the go-to place for comics of established properties.

    That's awsome!
    I hope we will have a continuous storyline between movies.
    I really love the whole TF07 universe (Prequel novel, comics, movie) so far.
    Can't wait to see more.

    That's awesome. I'm liking this new take on an old favourite, however I love continuity above all - a story that flows nicely is on the road to being a good story. Another prequel comic for the DVD? I hope it doesn't over-rite what is already the prequel comic.

    Continuing the story after the movie - lovin' it, with that teaser at the end of the first movie with Starscream I definitely wanna find out what he's up to; with added in characters also can we really expect the movie to carry on from what the comics will do? I mean it sounds as if IDW's ppl have thought at least one of their stories out, with new characters, and we don't even no who will be in the next which means that either whoever new they put in will somehow have to leave before the next movie, randomly just be somewhere else in the universe (or other side of the world :S)for the next movie or worse they could put someone like Soundwave in (since he won the polls) and then the movie designers and writers could do the same, meaning that in all likeliness we would end up with 2 different versions of Soundwave from the one continuity.

    I'm definitely looking forward to them cause I want another piece of the story, I just hope it all fits in nicely together.

    I'm confused, Ramjet isn't a new character or did I read that wrong?

    Awesome news.

    In that presumably cover shot, Megs looks a little different. Is this a resurected Megatron, a protoform/pre movie Megatron. I know Megatron wears his Cybertron mode for the movie, but there is no reason he couldn't have had a different form earlier.

    Maybe a flashback to a young Megs? He looks less mean spikey.

    Although questionably worded, I think that "New character" bit means that they're doing a spotlight on Ramjet, and a separate spotlight on this new character. But who knows.

    i just hope they don't go down a path that the writers of the next movie can't/won't follow.

    I probably won't be reading the comics, but I hate discontinuity!
