    Which designs are those based off?

    They don't match the movie or the toys or even any concepts. (It's obvious who's who, though.)

    The only one that looks a little off is Blackout, even he's just not streamlined in certain places like his earth mode is with the helicoptor parts. Just looks to me like a little bit of artistic license, every artist usually makes some.

    It appears to be following the continuity of the TF Movie adaptation comic that IDW put out, in which Barricade was killed by Optimus right after he fought Bonecrusher. The panel that show's Barricade's death has his head flying clear of the rest of his body, and hence he's carrying it here (very cool look)

    The UK prequel material contradicts IDW's prequel material in several spots, but otherwise, its definately canonical. Look at it how we look at the G1 Marvel comics. There's a US continuity, and a UK continuity. Both are right, they're just different.
