Optimus Prime #16 – IDW Publishing
Cover B is also on the link.
I'm guessing we might see some more of Soundwave's history, given that the cassettes are in their original bodies
Yep, but it's not really new news since it was revealed back when the 2018 February solicitations were released back in November:

Wow, that Casey Collar cover is gorgeous. I'd love to see him back in interiors sometime.
Ravage's presence could just be for the sake of the cover or a flashback, but with the influx of new Beastformers thank to Onyx's arrival, could we be seeing a Eukarian counterpart (of sorts) to Ravage? Bit of a longshot, but it wouldn't surprise me.
Who the heck decided to put Ravage as a prominent character on the cover, when he has not worked with Soundwave for years, and is also, dead?
Also is it me, or Leige Maximo's design is super boring? He is just... some dude without a discernible alt mode, and horns that I think even Bumblebee has bigger ones of. I miss the Lovecraftian tentacled, Diablo-horned thing that Furman showed us in G2.
And I think we all know Onyx is here to warn everyone about Unicron, so he is not the bad guy here, but since he looks like some World of Warcraft OC crossed with a Yugioh dragon, naturally everyone will assume he is evil and fight him. Likely, he will die at the end of the crossover only for Unicron to show up before he gets to warn everyone.
Y'know Onyx... you could have just texted.
Ravage? Maybe it's Howlback?
He's just Loki now. Also his horns are obviously bigger than bee's
Onyx murdered the Mistress of Flame's friend and also tried to kill Blackrock for no longer being of use to him. I think they have lots of reason to assume he's not a good guy.
I can\'t tell which one I like more! On one hand, that Kei Zama cover is bad ass and sharp! On the other, it\'s nice to look at because it looks so smooth and has a ton of characters.
Hope its as good as the two parter barber did about soundwave before dark Cybertron.
His rivalry with shockwave was cool.
Yep, Ravage got killed over a year ago in MTMTE
I gotta say Zama’s is better, although it is being boosted by Burcham’s colours.
There’s been tons of issues with dead or nonconical characters
Yeah, I miss G2 Maximo too. I'm not a big fan of the whole "robo Loki" thing they're going for.
1 : It's probably a flashback
2 : I'm sorry , but in honesty i much prefer Robot Loki to Fugly Guy Who Appeared Like , Once
3 : Onyx is the strongest and most powerful of Beastformers , plus it's literally his Aligned design but with inconsistent legs and Deathsaurus colors
Someone needs to make an onyx prime toy so we can clear that up
I agree , Onyx is a centaur but the art they use as the base of his IDW design from the Covenant Of Primus is rather hard to look at , he's in a post where he's rearing on his back legs and that's what's getting people confused.
I do like the Deathsaurus colors , compared to the colors he had in the CoP ; brown , gold and white for the eyes if I remember correctly.
I'm excited for this incarnation of Onyx in particular , the IDW Thirteen are very interesting if I'm honest
I acctualy thought it was deathsaurus when I saw the cover . I was reading the explanation on tfwiki and that's what confused me, since they panel the fore legs as rear but I get it that he would rear up to look intimidating.
