    Possibly. But more than likely it's a new character to the IDW universe that makes his debut in the New Avengers/Transformers #2 and then next appears in the Ramjet Spotlight.

    Looks to be that character. Not sure why people are thinking it's going to be a different Ramjet.

    Wait a second it can be a diofferent character from Ramjet? They said that the Decepticon will make his debut in the next issue of the crossover! It has to be Ramjet!

    I wish they would do a spotlight on Thundercracker. I dont think im the only one who would enjoy seeing his doubts about the cons cause being delved into finally.

    ^Officially, at any rate. You could build a wall if you printed out all the T-Cracker fanfic from over the years.

    I don't know why everyone insists on thinking that the Transformers\Avengers crossover is going to be in IDW's continuity.

    Do you really think that in Devastation, Optimus Prime is going to go "Remember, Spider-man showed us that..."
    Did the Teen Titans\X-men crossover effect either book?
    Did Batman\Spawn? What about Superman\Spider-man?

    It is in in the IDW Continuity. That's why people think it is. It doesn't have to be canon to be continuity. Ryall has stated several times, over at the IDW boards and possibly here, that they go together.

    They might never mention it, it might not affect either book, but it happened.

    I got the issue today. I like Ramjet's pre-earth mode with the no-conehead, as well as Megatron's being instantly suspicious of him. You only see his upper body and no alt-mode though.

    Sorry to be such a pest, but I've been all over those boards and never saw him mention it.
    I think it would be a disaster for the book to be in continuity. I hope they go the "never mention it" route.

    And have him defesct to the Autobots, to die then an heroic death protecting someone.

    A sort of flashback. Have the comic start with him surrounded by Autobots ( an homage to Dinobot in "Code of Hero") and then tell the story in a flashback manner.

    Having the book right here, I don't see a disaster looming. I don't want to get into spoilers but this seems fine as far as IDW continuity. Being Ramjet's first appearance though, it can be ignored only as much as Megatron's pre-G2 run in G.I. Joe can.

    Then again, I couldn't care less what it does for the Gordian Knot on Marvel's end.

    I think what's confusing everyone is that they mentioned that this story arc takes place between the first two story arcs of New Avengers (Breakout and Sentry - before Civil War) and after the events of the first two Transformers arcs (Infiltration and Escalation).

    I originally thought it was inline with both universes as well because of their specific mentioning to when it occurs but after re-reading the news post on Newsarama

    I don't think it is.

    I don't know why this is such a sore spot for me.
    I guess its just that such crossovers are normally outside of continuity.
    But more than that its that I think IDW has crafted a great continuity here and the human perspective has been portrayed quite well.
    Why would Hunter be persecuted for believing in aliens if he lived on a world that had seen both Galactus and the Kree-Skrull war?

    Either way, its just a comic book so I should get over myself.

    Are you kidding? Based on Marvel's main line of books I think they purposefully try to wreck past continuity. :)

    I took this book to be in the IDW Transformers universe, but not in continuity with the main ongoing storyline. A "What if" sort of story. Ya dig?
