    Roche is a fantastic writer/artist. Can't wait for this.

    Ive just been reading TF Premiere book1, and moved on to book 2 yesterday.

    Read the Kup spotlight and thought the complete opposite! Big drop in quality compared to everrything else I've read up to here from Furman.

    *Sigh* While I agree that is most likely supposed to be Overlord, I'm not really digging the design.

    And I really doubt the character will have any resemblence to the Mega-Giga Composite of old.

    I suppose I can just write it off as the non-media-supported Euro-release of the toy, and still manage to sleep at night

    (Who loves Masterforce, and hates it when US media co-opts J-TF characters and strips out everything but the visual designs...)

    Love the cover, but I'm not sure about the interior art.

    They'd better not make this the f***in' incentive cover, like they did for the Coda deco covers!!! You hear me Ryall!! You're ON NOTICE for that one!

    Love the cover art! Very AHM (in a good way -- i.e. great art). When are these due to start coming out? Additionally, is it meant to be pre-AHM?

    I am SO with you, mate. I wouldn't have an issue if they were calling him Gigatron (the US Powermaster counterpart to the Japanese Godmaster), but they're not. I shook Nick Roche vigorously when I found out about this at Auto Assembly last month in an attempt to make it so, but to no avail!

    I wouldn't consider it much of a "Last Stand" if we know they will make it to AHM.

    Hopefully this will lead to some sort of reissue or classics 3.0 for Overlord/Gigatron.

    I'm glad it's not just me, I feel so alone in the fandom sometimes.

    THAT'S RIGHT! I forgot about the SCF/HOC import as "Gigatron" God I wish they HAD gone there. Especially since ACTUAL Gigatron got turned into "Megatron" *sigh* in US continuity, that potential confusion would have been avoided anyhow.

    If they have to bring in some "kewl" Japanese character to use willy-nilly, why couldn't they use Blue Bacchus or Solin, or someone mostly unimportant?

    Thats purely rhetorical, but one can dream :)

    Wow! Looks great. I especially love Trevor Hutchinson's fantastic cover art! I want a whole IDW book of Trevor's cover art - used and unused. :)

    I was under the assumption this was set after AHM. It isn't?

    I agree with you and disagree with the dude I quoted. This has to be post-AHM.
