    Just tweeted by Botcon, this 2-page story is written by S. Trent Troop and drawn by Greg Sepelak. It focuses on the new Cheetor and supposedly will lead into this years Botcon Timelines comic. Plus cameos galore!

    Ha, I love that Crumplezone's face is essentially a Decepticonized Bulkhead. Great way to take advantage of the similarities of the head designs.

    I called it, Depthcharge is the police chief who's been behind a desk for too long, hence the bulk.

    Also of note, DJW posted a pic of Animated Mudflap, who appears on a wanted poster in this two page preview.

    This was awesome!

    Trent Troop and Greg Sepelak are easily my favorite authors! :D 

    I love all the guest appearances! Especially Jackpot and Hubcap! Out of all the text stories the Club has released, "Gone Too Far" is my favorite, and, in my opinion, the best as well; so, seeing those two pop up here was a fantastic surprise! :D 

    It was great to see Ransack and Crumplezone appear again. I kind of miss seeing Optimus blow them into the sky. :) 

    Also, I feel sorry for Iacon. With the kind of trouble Cheetor can unleash, the city won't be left standing at the end.

    Here's are the cameos I've been able to identify:
    Panel per Panel: Left to Right:

    Cheetor, Ransack, Crumplezone, Pipes, Huffer, Road Rage, Glyph, Powerlinx Hot Shot, Rosanna, Ramhorn, Zaur.

    Pipes, Stampy or Galaxy Force Gasket Police Edition (More likely Stampy), (Next two non-identifiable).

    Animated Movie Inferno (Female Red Alert Repaint), Drill Dasher or Scrounge (More Likely Drill Dasher), Energon Strongarm, Chromia, Skyfall (Club 2005) (Animated Powerglide Repaint), Cybertronian Bumblebee Remold (non-identifiable) 1, Dug Base, Autotrooper, Cybertronian Bumblebee Remold (non-identifiable) 2.

    (Non-Identifiable), Jackpot, Hubcap, Waspinator, Cybertron Mudflap, Depth Charge.

    Can anyone figure out the others?

    Now, the big question. Why are there only two pages? I'd love to see more!

    Icespark - This is just a two-page teaser to promote Cheetor and the Botcon set. There's more to come in the BC comic.

    The policebot grilling Jackpot and Hubcap has grilled them before in another universe, in club fiction. Good guesses all around for identities. Gotta leave something for debate, though. :) 

    Glad you enjoyed.

    I love how Huffer and Pipes are painting the billboard announcing the MotorMaster and his Stunt Convoy traveling show!

    Powerlinx Hot Shot would be Excellion.

    It's Stampy; he appeared with this design in the Almanac. The other two are generic Autobot workers seen in "TransWarped".

    With Sepelak and Troop as the creative team? Better BELIEVE that's Scrounge! The Bumblebees are Chase and Volks, who were designed for the cartoon but didn't appear in it.

    Well, Stampy's head in the Almanac had a different chin design, a slightly different colour scheme and no head-crest-dealie. And I'm suprised that Ransack (and Stampy, I guess) don't share Rattletrap's model. The shoulders don't match up. But who cares, SCROUNGE WITH A DRILL-HEAD, BITCHEZ! Hope all o' these guys get bigger images to fully soak in the Animated awesome (especially Scrounge, you only see his head and hands, dangit)!

    Hey, hey, people that were bitching about the Cheetor toy's organic-looking spots in vehicle mode, versus the hexagonal details on the robot mode and character model.

    Check out the pot of black paint Pipes drops when Cheetor knocks him over...

    I thought Wyatt wasn't a big fan of the TF animes.

    Cybertron and Beast Wars homages in one comic.

    That's pretty great.
