    most odd, i like how their cybertronian modes look now though, the first movie prequel ones didn't look as polished

    The "Orion Pax" face for young Optimus looks really out of place in the movie-verse.

    i wish they could just settle on cybertronian designs and stick to them, protoform ironhide in the movie looked nothing like that

    Oh, never thought of it that way. I thought they drew him without the mouth plate to match him with Movie Prime.

    That's because they all came to Earth scanned under the same form, what you saw in the movie wasnt thier real Cybertronian form.
    Ratchet looks the same to me. But now I wish they'd make a Protoform Starscream like that!

    ILM reused the same protoform model for each Autobot; presumably when they come to Earth they shed their old "skin" and transform into a comet in order to scan a completely new form.

    there's just enough tension there still, they clearly don't have that high opinions of each other!

    And this stuff about losing their cybertron form and getting a protoform instead - how come optimus prime looks exactly the same in protoform as on cybertron then, and how come ironhide prime and starscream protoforms all look different?

    Don't really like the art...I know this is the movie verse's Golden Age, but that doesn't mean it has to look like the Golden Age of G1. VERY unimaginative, if you ask me. The colors are also a bit...Well, weird.

    And it bothers me a LOT that Prime seems to be Orion Pax in this. I mean, come on, Megatron and Prime were equal rulers in the movie verse...Here he just seems to be Megatron's lackey. And Ratchet bothers me a bit as well, he's too different from the normal movie verse style...And didn't IDW already have a Cybertronian design for him that was used in the first Prequel?

    Simple. Hasbro made the Prime figure based on the Protoform concept art, before tweaking it to make a bit more Prime esque. Starscream was a toy only design not based on concept art. Maybe they were going to have individual Protoforms after all, but budget eventually prevented that and they had to use the same Protoform model for all character.

    Oh well, Prime is still different enough from the regular Protoforms for me not to really care.

    yeah, it wouldn't look so bad if it looked, y'know, mechanical. Instead it looks organic. :(

    I forsee another little 'rise of Optimus Prime' event to come when Megs turns malevolent which will involve some physical changes to Optimus' form and face.

    Well yeah, the title is Defiance; "Yes, Sir!," and Optimus proceeds to blast Megs in the face. But considering the solicitation for Issue 2, I think this will be the only issue set before the first movie.

    Ratchet's design looks like his cybertronian design from one of the TFUK comics from 2007.

    Quintessons? I wouldn't mind them introducing them as a foreign invading species.
