    In in one of the newest TF comics. There was a speak eater.

    I didn't think much about it other than reading the comic at the time. And by chance I read Transformers Timelines Balancing Act which there was another form of spark eating robot. Which got me thinking...

    Is that Spark Eater in IDW comics from anything or a nod to anything?

    pretty sure it's something James Robert made up in his fanfic and has now canonized it, it was referenced in LSOTW too

    IMO it's a great addition to the mythos - it's adding a new type of predator that preys on Transformers, a new part of their world. Not too often we get to see that kind of beast.

    Just what I was gonna mention. And Beast Machines Megatron was sorta scoffing sparks near the end of the series.
    Eating someone's soul isn't that much of a new concept.

    Maybe it's kind of a throwback to the Swarm from the G2 comics, but it seems different enough that it could be something entirely new.

    There are also "wannabes" in the G1 fiction... BombBurst being one such example.
