    The TFcon exclusive 2011 mini comic drawn by IDW's Alex Milne, colored by Josh Perez and written by yours truly the goddamn Protoman is now up for the public to view (minus the dialogue). Enjoy!

    Page 1 | Page 2 | Page 3 | Page 4 | Page 5 | Page 6

    The story tells of Fortress' transition from his original Planet Master body to his new Fortress Maximus upgrade as well as introduces us to Toxin, the previously unknown 4th Decepticon Headmaster of Scorponok's gang. Enjoy!

    (This is all based in the J-G1 cartoon continuity and happens before episode 1 of Transformers: Headmasters)

    So Stronghold is Fortress? It looks like Toxin kills Loafer and takes his Transtector! What's Powered Commander doing on planet Master? and Cab and Minerva's Transtectors! I love fan comics. I have to enter this into Wikialpha.org, because it will never end up on the tfwiki or Wikipedia.

    So who all appears in this comic? I see Fortress/Stronghold, Powered Commander, Chromedome, Highbrow, Brainstorm, Hardhead, Cab, Minerva, Nightbeat, Loafer (who Toxin kills), Toxin, I think those are Mindwipe, Weirdwolf and Skullcruncher... is that Headmaster Kirk who is at the top of page 1?

    So Powered Commander is officially part of the Transformers universe now? Or was he already part of it? I don't follow the comics so..

    Well not because of these comics, as these comics are not "official", they are done by a fan convention without license (even if they are drawn by professinal artists, they are technically fan-comics). However, Diaclone colored Ultra Magnus did appear in some commercials for the movie and also appeared in one issue of the Dreamwave G1 comics. So Diaclone colored Magnus is official.

    Only just noticed, standing in the ship behind Zarak on page 4 is Perfect Effect's PE-11 Scouting Force X.

    One thing about the continuity though, they said this is Japanese G1, pre Headmasters, but wasn't Zarak in that story full transformer sized, not small Headmaster size?

    It depends on your definition of "goodness". Some prefer nice art above a good story, and the art is on full display here. Plus the con is already over.

    It depends, some episodes had him shorter then Galvatron when he was in the shadows, some flashback episodes had him as tall as the smaller Master pilots, some episodes have him barking orders to Sixshot face to face. So........

    Also for those who missed it, that's Planet Master scientist and co creator of Maximus, Jack working on Fortress's new body on the last panel of page 5.

    The Cab, Shoota and Minerva cameo are just the transtectors in storage for when they will later appear in Masterforce and be given to the children.

    There is no dialogue cause Alex just wants to show off his art and not my words =P

    I thought maybe it was Rhodney. Small, blue and yellow and all. Good to know it was Jack. His arms do look more like Jack.

    Yes, I see Fortmax, I mean the smaller blue and yellow spaceship parked between the two Autobot shuttles.

    I can't speak for the Japanese Continuity but the American toys call pretty much all Decepticon Headmasters "Horrorcons" of one sort or another (same sort of idea as RID Predicons really). So a Chromedome body isn't really fitting the bill in that regard.

    Q: Do they have Gravity lifts they use in vehicle mode in Headmasters - if not look a flying Fire Engine ! (joke)
