    Editor for IDWs Last Stand of the Wreckers, Chris Ryall, has updated his personal blog, RyallTime, with the previously seen cover art pages for the book along with what appears to be the first page of issue #1.

    RyallTime: "Wrecked 'em? Damn near killed 'em!"

    Looks like Overlord to me, which is awesome!

    I think I'm finally tired of the Hutchinson covers. They clash with this interior page anyway.

    I know Overlord, and Skyquake of course. Who are the other four, the UK Skyscorchers? Which is which?

    Hmmm.. all of these pages look familiar. I think they've been seen already.

    Oh, okay. I only saw the thread with the b&w pages, not Josh's DA.

    Eh, let's leave the thread open anyway, since the comic's not out yet. And since it's a relief from the bayformer style in the ongoing! :lol

    Snare is to the right. The rest are generics.

    Cyclonus in Overlord colours? Would that work? I think it sure would!

    For a toy? There's potential there, but Overlord should be a tank as well. Animated Blitzwing with a new head maybe.

    What the heck is this? I've never seen any of these guys. I thought this was about the Wreckers?

    We assume the Wreckers are sent to stop these Decepticons.

    And you should read up on Overlord. He's a pretty kickass Decepticon leader, from Japanese G1 series Masterforce, and a later exclusive in Europe. His toy is the largest con ever made.

    It is. But they are going to fight a lot of UK/Europe only characters. Like Overlord, Skyquake, and others.

    I don't see why anyone would consider European Decepticons a turnoff to a Wreckers comic, considering the Wreckers themselves never appeared in the US G1 comics.

    The rest of the big bad Decepticon leaders that appeared in the U.S. as toys are already tied up by continuity elsewhere doing other things.

    Their first appearance in the U.S. comics was Dreamwave's second G1 story; War & Peace.

    They didn't appear in the Marvel comics but they have appeared in the U.S. comics before.

    Right, Marvel G1 was what I meant. Predating Dreamwave were the Botcon Wreckers though.

    I don't really count the Botcon Wreckers as the Wreckers. The whole team's completely different. They're the Wreckers in name only.

    This new team is a progression of the Wreckers that appeared in Stormbringer so its a more natural change of team members. I'm quite interested in seeing the obscure guys being forcibly plucked out of obscurity and into the spotlight. Some have never appeared in an official comic before.

    And I don't count Dreamwave as G1, they used and abused the universe. It's G1 in name only.

    :p
