    I don't know who did the art for the Marvel G2 comics, but this preview reminds me of them. I don't love the apparent beast altmodes. Wonder if they'll have some backstory for them or if it's just artistic license?

    I really hope this turns out as well as the WWII GI Joe/TF comics.

    Wow, I am loving those battle scenes! Nice fantasy look to them. I might actually go out and get this series (which is saying something).

    I'm pretty curious to see how this series will play out. I like the fact that we'll be getting a series that will show all the different ideas that can come from Transformers. Can't wait for the free comic book day!! Hell, I just can't wait for it to come out!!

    I think those are supposed to be the alt-modes from whatever planet they're on before they come to earth. For most of the series, they'll be in forms similar to the ones in the first pic. I wonder why IDW chose these pages, as they're pretty unrepresentative of what the series will look like.

    Wow... I knew there was something that bugged me about them. I'd have to see the actual pages themselves, but to me they look kind of genericized monsters like what Marvel used to have as background fodder.

    I really like those pages, as they suggest that the robot modes take on elements of the alt mode for the styling. Which is why the HOS designs look a lot like actual steampunk robots instead of futuristic bots with throwback altmodes, and why these turn into savage beasts and have robots that look like monster knights or something. And I think that the coloring, althought primitive, goes really well with the style and pencils.

    Lovin' the preview so far, and the art I don't mind because I like seeing different takes on the art style for TFs anyways.:) 

    And I'm getting a weird BW homage from those pages.:D

    I think they're actually on Earth during the Ice Age, but I could be wrong.

    I'm actually liking the art and the setup... it's not precisely what I had in mind, but still cool IMHO.

    Also, if anyone wanna know, there was also a cool two-page poster for Transformers Stormbringer in the issue.
    Here it is.

    After not really watching much of Cybertron, and watching all of Galaxy Force, I can say, that last episode was absolute and utter garbage.


    I can't believe how idiotic they made the show compared to GF. Wow, just wow....

    Didn't hasbro toy with the idea of transformers becoming fantasy creatures before? I believe it was called Transmythics

    oooooooooh I like!
    I really like the direction the Hearts-o-Steel comic is going, Its like the G1 to Bw but BACKWARDS!! Which is GREAT!, I love that G1 bots were awake while Dinos walked the earth, maybe even being the Mythical creatures in earth history (dragons)

    Actually Transmythics was just a fad that swept BW kitbashers, turning Normal molds into Mythical Creatures.

    I dont think thats Op, Maybe Nemisis, I think thats prime in the Background, next to Bumble YES thats Bumblebee.
