    Is it at all possible that we could get some scans in here of the various easter eggs?

    Here's one from issue #1: Kremzeek appears in a billboard, page 19 panel 3. He also reappears on page 6 of issue 2, left side, bottom.

    Well, I noticed Scrounge and the hobo-bots from Budiansky's old Marvel run.

    Scrounge is on page 14, upper left panel. The empty is on the next page. Please try and mention where the easter egg is.

    A Starscream looking robot is also on page 6, right side panel, middle level.

    Sunstreaker: Page 4, 3rd panel from the bottom, Page 9, panel 6, on the right side in the crowd.

    Mindwipe (?): Page 4, 3rd panel from the bottom, on the right.

    Dreadwing (?) Page 3, panel 5, right side. Page 5, middle panel, far right.

    Topspin (?): Page 6, left panel, midpage, far left.

    Tantrum: Page 9, panel five, right side.

    Powerdasher (Drill): Page 9, panel 6, behind Sunstreaker and Sideswipe on the far right.

    Doomsday (DC)(?): Page 9, panel 3.

    He DOES look a lot like Sixshot, although that may be unintentional. Swindle is close in color scheme but I think Swindle is more likely to be horking out the discs of th fights.

    Wow, Drill dasher is quite an obscure character to put in the comic.

    Also maybe we should make an archive of all the confirmed easter eggs later on with identities if the characters can be identified.

    Can't remember the page (don't have my copy handy)
    But there is a bot who looks like Pretender Starscream's shell (though with a robotic face) in the crowds early on, I think as megs is taking off his helmet.

    That seems to be their modus operandi. They showed up randomly in a Dreamwave TF comic to help fix the Orion space ship before they fought Sunstorm again. Then disappeared just as quickly.

    You mean the guy on page 5, panel 6? I can see a resmblence, another difference is that the bot in question has a crest Unlike Starscream's Pretender shell.

    It looks to be so, except he's missing his shoulder cannon although he could've gotten that later.

    Also Alex has put the un-worded pages on his deviant page. We can see a few more cameos and he confirms some in the page comments.

    In the page where Ratbat is looking at his computer screen, the second panel, second guy in on the left, appears to be Magnum from Microman (he was a revolver pistol). Either that or Hoist.
    On the tall page featuring all the spectators with the winning team below, the top left guy reminds me of Manta Ray, my favorite Autobot from G2 :)

    Haven't been this excited about Transformers since War Within.

    Boiled eggs:

    -Diggin the prequel Decepticon symbol bling Megs is wearing on the chain on his neck.
    -Can't wait to see some fan art of Megs with his original crests exposed.
    Very nice!

    Also lovin the Pimpbot with the 2 fembots: Page 6 left panel, first tier.

    -That monster beast on page 9, 3rd panel isn't Doomsday, but he does look VERY familiar. Someone's Pretender or something from some SCI/FI or comic maybe? He must be huge, cuz he's got 2 bots impaled on his horns!

    -Isn't that Hun-Gurrr the Terrocon team leader on page 9, 5th panel, next to Tantrum.
    [​IMG]


    -Also looks like another appearance of Starscream in the crowds of battle 54, page 9, 5th panel.


    -Glad to see Ravage similar to his War Within form. Page 18, 5th panel.

    Also, Bravo on the Sentinal Prime reformat, AWESOME!!

    Perhaps. But these Cameos are not simple cameos, these are for hardcore fans and long time TF Comic readers, as well as old skool Robot toy genre collectors. The casual fan is gonna miss out on appreciating most of these, and even the most watchful fan could miss a few without some help from a thread like this.

    These cameos are like finding Easter Eggs, stimulating joy & rewarding.

    What is the fanboy definition of Easter Eggs anyway?
