    "Artist Nick Roche does his Transformers Spotlights, (Shockwave, Hot Rod) one better here, this time tackling full scripting duties along with handling the art chores on a special issue featuring the one and only KUP! In this Spotlight on the grizzled old TRANSFORMER, KUP finds himself stranded, facing shutdown, and fighting evil that just might be all in his mind. Alex Milne joins the cause, too, presenting a special variant cover that shows just what KUP is up against in this Spotlight, seen below in today's ADJ. Enjoy!"

    I think he'll do well. Knows his stuff -- http://transfans.net/interviews_roche.php

    A general Q&A thread about what's coming next year:

    This is roughly what I think's solidified --

    I haven't added the 2007 movie adaptation itself yet, which may be released on a less-than-monthly schedule to tie in with the film --

    Most notable is the Megatron origin mini-series.

    Interesting, I will definitely look forward to this spotlight with Roche doing both art and writing duties. Suffice it to say, I"m happy to see the old mech' in action.:) 

    Also, Alex Milne put the colors (by Josh Perez-BUMBLEBEE) to his variant cover online:

    I wonder if he'll fight zombie petrorabbits as well?;)

    The same thing crossed my mind when I saw it but according to the Rhino DVD set they are Death Crystals but basically the same thing. It would be nice to see their take on Kup's past with Chaos but since I don't have a comic shop near me I will have to wait for a review or something.

    Am I the only one who wants Kup to be a wave 4 Classic figure after seeing this? Kup needs a Classic treatment or at least a 6" Titanium.

    I agree, those definately look like death crystals. Would explain the decapitated robot there too. I'm digging these Spotlights. I think I'm going to have to break down and get them.

    That would be an awesome fanbois nod if they did that. That was definitely one of the better episodes in season 3.

    Completely agree

    Meh... Kup doesn't excite me like Soundwave, but I must say IDW has made obscure characters interesting so far.

    I'm actually kinda glad to see someone other than Furman. I've loved his work, I just like to see the efforts of others as well. Anyone know if there's another Evolutions story in the works? I want to see another reimagining to satisfy my TF "What if?" thirst.

    The Spotlight issues have been great so far. I'm looking forward to Kup. Hopefully it really pulls off the 'old warrior up for one last fight' vibe.

    Well, I'll bet at least him and Roche consulted on the story so that there's no contradictions in what Furman is planning.
