    So, the solicits for January's Transformers books have been posted at TFormers - and MOST interesting is the solicit for TF Animated: The Arrival #6:

    Keep in mind that all indications are that this miniseries is canon - the head writer is treating it as canon after all!

    And, there's Max. Dinos 2 as well:

    And of course AHM 7:

    And FINALLY... the movie prequel. 2 issues solicited:

    Defiance #1:
    Allegiance #2:
    There's also several TPBs out that month - Classic Transformers vol. 3, Saga of the Allspark, and some of the DW material.

    Yeah. This must mean that their creation is set sometime after Starscream escapes in "Fistful of Energon", I guess. Or maybe DURING Starscream's escape, for all we know.

    ...could they be Allspark clones perchance? Or just copies of his exostructure given Spark?

    Awesome, stuff, all around.

    VERY surprised to see Animated Arrival #6, though... I thought their miniseries ended at #5 now?

    Maybe IDW has rights to the Jetstorm/Jetfire comic and decided to append that on.

    This isn't the first time they've extended a miniseries (see the UK Dinobots reprints)

    We might get more details on how Transformers in the Animated universe are born. At least when it comes to normal Cybertronians.

    So the jet boys are an unholy creation?

    It all makes sense now. :p

    Interesting, very interesting. I wasn't expecting the jet twins to be, essentiall, reformatted Starscream clones. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out in the show, and how Starscream will react to that.

    I doubt they're clones in anyway.
    The description pretty much just says that the autobots tried to reverse engineer Starscream's flying ability.

    Very intriguing piece of information there regarding Jetfire and Jetstorm.

    All of that info is very interesting. I dig that idea of the first flying autobot but what about Omega Supreme?

    Great stuff to look forward to. Plus, I'm glad to see IDW Grimlock's head does not have his WW-style teeth.
