    This may not really count as TF news, and if it doesn't feel free to block this thread, but over in Marvel comics recently, in an issue of a new comic called S.W.O.R.D. (issue 1 in fact) we see the return of a familiar face to TF fans.

    That's pretty cool. :lol 

    What role does he play in the issue, and what do they refer to him as?

    Unless those were released preview pages, probably not a site you want to link to here.

    As for Death's Head, though he made his "debut" in the UK TF series (much like circuit breaker, he was hastily introduced elsewhere to retain marvel ownership of the character), he went on to have a long career in other marvel titles, especially UK ones.

    So yeah, he's got some TF history, but the character is no longer really defined by it, and is arguably a completely different character than the one from TF.

    But its still pretty cool that he's back in the game, yes?

    Well, if you want to be pedantic, Death's Head isn't really a TF character. He appeared in a one-shot story before Furman introduced him to the TF UK comic.

    No. Death's Head is a Transformers character but Marvel U.K. didn't want Hasbro to have ownership on the character so they created that one-shot to make him a Marvel character.

    Its not as if Death's Head was put into the Transformers comic based on his appearance in a single one-shot comic.
