Notice how Star Saber, despite being Tyrests second in Command, is not among the list.

I guess it's a Legislator, but somehow I never got the impression that they were actually that large (to the degree of dwarfing Overlord).

How are they not bad guys? They're dyed-in-the-wool Decepticons, and one of the last times we saw them, they were using a live Autobot as a campfire.

Legislators have been different sizes. The gun ones seem average, but the ones Skids first fought were HUGE and combined into a space ship.

Hmmm...so no Lockdown, Fulcrum and Star Saber?

That's werid. It's not like Roche COULDN't sqeeze them in since his Lost Light crew print had MUCH more characters. Maybe it's a hint who's not going to survive/who's not evil at all?

To be fair, they seemed like nice guys until, burning the still alive Autobot.
Nope

I doubt it's the first reason, since Flywheels (not really a spoiler, but just in case) is in the image and he's dead.

Ya, I forgot about that.

Well at least Lockdown makes sence since I can't call him a main baguy because well he's mostly a cameo so far and he's not evil per say he's just a hired gun doing shit for the one who pays the most...still leaves out Star Saber who's build up as this insanse heretic burning inquisitor and Fulcrum...

I think time is more the reason

MTMTE 19 came out last wednesday and put it in no uncertain terms that Tyrest is a dick. There is zero need for spoiler tags at this point. EDIT: Actually, there is, since it only came out a week ago, and some people read via trade, so be polite please - Staff

I am, however, miffed to say the least that everyone's favorite scavengers are included in this "badguy roundup". They are TERRIBLE at being bad! They're so bad at being bad that they might as well be good guys (granted, Krok did put out their campfire in more ways than one, but his chest was hollowed out and already on fire).

I just hope they make a glorious return at some point. We got like 2 issues with them, then a subsequent twelve without. If they were a one-shot, I call shenanigans.
SMOG
Personally, I think a big part of the appeal of the Scavengers is the reminder that they still ARE bad guy, despite being so lovable. Things like the campfire incident serve to reinforce the idea that they are still despicable, even while being funny and a bit pathetic.

Anybody heading down to AA could help me pick up a couple of these please??

Krok is tiny. They could reuse the bomber megs figure for him.
Omnius
Looking forward to picking one of these up, a nice companion to the Lost Light print from last year.

Yeah, I have that idea as well.
YoungPrime
Now if only we'd see more of these guys in the comics....

The Scavengers need a spinoff.
WilyMech
I am remember the campfire to certain extent the Autobot was going to die regardless if Krok did not shoot him or not. It is a mercy killing but setting it on fire well that is another story.

In truth I am not surprise Fulcrum is on the list. James did write Fulcrum in Eugenesis as being a traitorous and I will not be surprise that is the case.

Scavengers do need their own series as evil bad guys they are bottom of the barrel somehow I don't see them being rivals of Lost Light crew for long. Erstwhile allies Lost Light crew will join up and fight bigger baddie in the future. Lesser of two evils that what the Scavengers are.

Ha! That could actually work, considering that G1 Krok's "kibble" seemed to indicate that he was some kind of stealth jet.

I'm not sure I would classify it as a mercy killing necessarily... I don't think that was Krok's motivation. It's almost more like if you were in a gang of cannibals, and halfway through your meal, you noticed he was still alive, and casually executed him.

Either way, I think that scene did what it was intended to do... remind us that the Scavengers are still scum, even if they seem sympathetic.

Hell yes they do. Written by Nick Roche, at that. I think Roche might even inch out Roberts for me.

I think I was trying to get it is relative evil compare to Overlord or the D.J.D. but yeah. It will be different if we see them outside of survival mode. I could say we should let the Autobot burn to death in most painful gruesome manner being burn to death is not a pleasant way to go. I would like to see them earn the title of scum. Zee pack of Hyenas they are.

I can't bump up the resolution much, but I don't see Pharma.

And nobody else has mentioned his absence.

Crap you're right, who's the guy next to Flywheels? Never mind. I didn't realize "that guy" was so tall.
