    I've been interested in the Thirteen since I had heard about them (pretty much started with the Fallen), I was at BotCon when they revealed Solus Prime's existence and feminine body-type, as well as revealing Nexus Prime's concept drawing (knew he was one, but didn't have a picture last year, now they're confirming he's the "first combiner"). They also revealed there's going to be an "original beast" amongst the thirteen as well as a "Minicon". For the hell of it, I was on TFWiki's Thirteen Original Transformers page, and I noticed something on the picture they have up.

    This one:

    Look at the head at the fourth from the left position, third from Megatronus'.

    They just revealed to the public that there'd be a Minicon in the 13 not even 48 hours ago (from this post). I knew they'd been working on them, but damn, it's still kinda a mind-fuck to me.

    That being a Japanese illustration that also appears to include Logos Prime, who Hasbro may or may not even be including in their list of the 13, I think it's just a coincidence and that dude is standing in the back.

    That's the right size and shape to be Erector's head!

    Someone's going to theorize it might be Erector. I'm calling it.

    EDIT: Pre-empted by a minute. :lolol

    There's 13 pictured there without the "mini con". I think that's a shoulder or a weapon.

    This.

    Take the spot away from Unicron, and put it onto my proposed Minicon, now put Primus' spot away and place it between 10 and 11.

    Right, right.

    Now is it just me or does the guy in the flames look like a seeker?


    edit: Says "Guess the one on fire!". It can't be sunstorm can it? Isn't he a starscream clone in one continuity?

    This is what I'm seeing, the air intake? of the jet modes and the chest parts of a seeker:

    might be a trick of the eye. I'd like to know what this image is for and when it'll be complete. I didn't care about the 13 before but this thread has my interest piqued.

    ok I need schooling, obviously, on this in more detail.


    Who is that a picture of?

    Also, the main drawing shown, what is that from?

    The imagination and enthusiasm of this fandom are one of the reasons I love Transformers so much.

    The other is the giant robots that blow each other apart and turn into cool stuff, but whatevs.

    That's a picture of The Fallen's Titanium toy. If you were unaware, the character existed before the movies.

    That's from Takara's "World of Transformers" website, which covers the basics of Transformers. It illustrates the Unicron/Primus/Original Thirteen origins of the race.
