    Up here. Love the Wildman Thundercracker cover, don't love the fact he's back already. I do hope the lack of insignia on his wings is intentional.

    That Thundercracker cover is awesome. I wonder what Dons seeker design look like? Have we seen it?

    Yep, we saw the seekers in one of the previews of the ongoing a few months ago.

    Wait, does anyone else think that the second character fighting in the redish cover looks like Lugnut?

    According to CBR's newest preview, it's probably safe to say that the pic you linked is a sort of generic "flashback" type of image, summarizing the nature of their conflict (hence the inclusion of dead characters such as Sunstreaker, the battlechargers, etc.), and so the seekers as seen there are probably Don's interpretation of EJ Su's F-22 design. So I don't think we've seen what Don's G1-movie-hybrid take on the seekers will look like.

    Based on one of the previous preview images we've seen, that'd be Kick-Off, while the one on the left is possibly a generic Decepticon (perhaps based on the Energon Blight/Kickback mold?), but of course I could be wrong on that second part. And of course the ominous figure above them would be Overlord. (Speaking of whom, do we have confirmation yet whether he'll be going by the name "Overlord," or "Gigatron"?)

    I'm guessing there is an X-Men homage/theme in Wildman's covers; the first alternate cover with Hot Rod looked a lot like a Wolverine pose and this Thundercracker cover looks like a Storm pose...

    Love the Thundercracker cover... I'm liking Wildman's style on these recent pieces. I HOPE Thundercracker comes back, but I don't need it to be right away...

    Cool... I hadn't seen that one before! I'm not thrilled with the style used on all the characters but there are some little touches that are fun... gotta love Ratchet karate-kicking Thundercracker. Nice reference. :) 

    Hmmm... it may not be a named character in the series, but it does look like him. Wasn't Lugnut supposed to be a former arena gladiator in the Animated continuity? I feel like I heard that somewhere... maybe Wyatt mentioned it in passing?

    IF so, it would be a nice reverse-homage to feature him in this series.

    Yea, my favorite Con is back! His heroic deed and exit was easily one of my favorite moments of AHM. Can we have poster of that cover please!

    Baroness one looks nice too.

    While Wildman's cover isn't perfect (compare the wings on Thundercracker, that didn't come out that well) I'd prefer Wildman's artwork over Don's in this book. That's how much I hate the faces.
