    Is there anywhere I can find galleries of the War Within characters? I already googled...didn't see anything promising.

    What do you mean by galleries? What sort of pics are you after - comic scans?

    I guess...it's probably the only way they were ever portrayed anyway. I never got to read all the War Within stuff, and I just want to see all the designs (robot and alt modes, if possible).

    Of course, the best way would be MTMTE-type bio pages with pics, but I know that will never happen.

    No, I don't think it would. Well, there are toys of some War Within characters, or at least modified versions of them (offhand Prime, Megatron, Jetfire and Thundercracker, as well as the semi-released Prowl and Grimlock), in the Titanium line, so there's a reference point to start at.
    There's also Don and Andy Wildman's design sketches from the WW and DA trades that you could check out if you can get hold of them. Unfortunately I can't scan them myself as my scanner's fragged at the mo.

    there used to be a website solely dedicated to TWW... it' had scans of ALLL the characters.. i wish i could find it but i can't for the life of me. anyway, seeing as that 'universe' is dead, i look ahead to what IDW has in store. if you go to the IDW boards they have some stickies with bios and pics for every character they've introduced in their universe and a lot of the more defined TWW designs were reused in Stormbringer and the IDWverse anyway.

    No, I forgot the Fallen. Starscream was just a repaint of Thundercracker, so while Thundercracker was a (reasonably) faithful rendition of the comic version, because the comic versions had pretty different transformations the Starscream one was pretty well off-model IIRC.

    Frankly, by the same token, though, I don't think the Fallen one's much cop either. Although in fairness to them on that one, there wasn't ever a proper design that showed both robot and tank modes (or at least not the same robot and tank modes) so it's not like they had a lot to work from.

    The reason for that is, of course, Superstar Fan Favourite Pat Lee.

    Don did the original designs for all the others listed.

    Pat Lee also did the War Within Megatron. Don did everything else but Megatron and Fallen.

    Now the Titanium Fallen is based on Don's Stormbringer Megatron. Pretty crazy.
