    VERY COOL!!!! I like the size ratio of Roadbuster in comparison to the others! Is this suppose to be like a Wreckers spin off? Would like to see more.

    I'm pretty excited for Drift. We're getting a toy of him right? Like universe wave 5 I'm guessing?

    Is there a reason Roadbuster is obscenely big? Like I can understand Broadside... but Roadbuster?

    And Rumble with stabby Drills? Splatting human's heads with piledrivers isn't enough?

    The comics have been 'just ok'. Not good enough to make me rush out and buy them but just good enough to justify a TPB purchase 6 months later. :(

    Newsflash:

    There have been rumors that Autobot Roadbuster from the Wreckers has been taking steroids or other illegal enhancing drugs. Our news crew try to get some comments from Autobot Command but neither Optimus Prime or Springer were available for comments.

    The reason is like anything else AHM has done to be different from the previous IDW G1 comics (yet at the same time insisting it's in the same continuity) such as the now-F-15 seekers, characters assuming toy bodies or the dropping of Ore-13 from the plotline: Not written with Furman's plot in mind.

    Kup is looking distinctly not insane there.

    given the sonics messin' with the soldiers and the fact that he's blue, I'm pretty sure that's Frenzy...

    It is Frenzy.

    And he singlehandedly massacres a whole detachment.

    And frenzy needs giant stabby drills because...?

    I would rather see him blow up heads via scanners with sonic vibrations opposed to 'Mr. Drillyfist'. Like I get it... Drills into humans = hardcore badass killin... Why not give all the decepticons chainsaws then?

    Just seems bizarre to me.

    Great wallpaper, though it took me a little bit to recognize Drift there, as I'm not used to seeing him. Here's hoping it isn't too long till we see what his toy will look like, that is if Hasbro is still planning on making that in the Universe line.

    I'm liking the cigar. The picture screams "A Team" to me.

    Hm. I dunno...

    I like that Roadbuster is bigger. Always pictured him that way for some reason... probably because the toy was large, and he was sort of a special character. However, he looks somehow... too bulky and monstrous?

    The cigar is funny, and totally suits a portrayal of Kup, but seriously...? A robot cigar? I don't know if that goes too far into silliness for me.

    In general, I find the relative sizes a bit odd in this picture, but I do like the spirit of the thing...

    I understand where you're coming from. I think that they gave him morphing drill-arms to correspond to his brother Rumble's seismic piledrivers. I'm not sure if I like them... seems excessive to me.

    Originally I never liked Rumble's piledrivers because the Tech Specs were quite clear about Rumble and Frenzy's powers being generated through internal workings... but the piledrivers did grow on me as an iconic image and distinct character trait.

    I suppose it's nice that they gave Frenzy something special, rather than just playing him like a clone of Rumble. The "mad dog" portrayal does suit the character... even if the drills seem like a sophomoric attempt to make the character "darker" and "more violent".

    While I'm glad Kup ain't insane anymore (or so we assume, since he's back in action) - unless it's handled, it just seems... cheap.

    As it's been mentioned - AHM is supposed to be in same cont as -tion series, but sure isn't feeling like it other than the basic arc of "Bots left Earth".

    And has there ever been stated just what F*ed up Prime so badly??
