IGN have Posted a five page preview of Devestation #1.
Awesome.. I love Hot Rod's earth mode.
Looks like Devastation will be another winner. And I love Hot Rod's earth mode as well. Very slick.
hot rod becomes sideburn
So this is the continue to escalation right ?
haha! Sideburn Hot Rod!
Si si si!
I've been enjoying whatever IDW's been putting out so far, and this looks to be no exception. I especially like how the Autobot team does not merely consist of year 1/2 G1 Autobots but some of the later years are represented as well (HArdhead, Hot Rod and Nightbeat) and given more realistic vehicle modes (Well, don't know about Hardhead yet)
I love it...with the exception of that black Thundercracker.
I wonder if Hot Rod's robot mode looks similar to Sideburn. More than likely, not. We'll have to wait I guess. At least I know I have IDW's Earth Hot Rod in car mode.
I love that picture of BB on the cover.
The BUMBLEBEE cover is nice & atmospheric, but I hate that other one. I just wish IDW would start an ongoing series instead of all these minis...
What we're seeing here is effectively an on-going series, given the way these things are being tied together. Spoiler:With Six Shot expected to arrive on earth during Devastation, things will tie into Spotlight more closely. I expect Ultra Magnus to turn up at some point as well.
So far I'm liking it - an intricate, original back-story that doesn't have to be compatible with established G1 continuity (and the inevitable continuity errors and retcons that come with it).
the main difference between these mini stories and an ongoing is that they can do other things during the gaps.
plus, unlike many other mini series, they do not have to be wrapped up every six issues - there can still be plot threads left hanging.
I still hate IDW's G1 storyline when compared to DW's, but Hot Rod being a Viper is a nice plus. One of these days I'll get over DW going under -_-
This is just too awesome, Viper has been my favorite car since I was about 7 yrs old. <3 yay Hot Rod!! Although I do own Sideburn already it's still not Hot Rod.
lol RID Sideburn.
loving this continuity.
