    Why did Megatron's chest shrink so much? Or is that ROM cosplaying as Megatron? What a mystery.

    And, oh, that's Rodimus. I thought it was Windblade or something. Yikes.

    Megatron is a Decepticon again?
    Hmm, is that a spoiler? I've been avoiding any info about the story of lost light
    The artwork of this cover is not the best
    Either way I'm still looking forward to the jest issue of Lost Light when I get to read it

    On his Twitter, Roberts said not to read too much into the Decepticon brand/gun. But that could be a trick XD

    Most alternate/retail exclusive covers, don't have any bearing on the plot whatsoever, they just feature characters from the series, I wouldn't take this as indicative of anything

    I think this cover is the best variant in the bunch.

    I assumed he'd go back to not having an arm cannon.

    I quit reading MTMTE somewhere in the mid 40s but who would have ever guessed Megatron would go back to being a arm cannon wielding Decepticon. Now they just gotta bring Bumblebee back to life and its par for the course, if they haven't already done that too.
    I sure don't like Rodimus' new colors at all. Might as well make Optimus green and Soundwave pink while they are at it.

    Well of course I know about Shattered Glass Rodimus, but that's not what this is and the colors aren't the same anyway. He's not a Decepticon or alternate universe version now either.

    I\'m sorry if the artist is looking in, but this cover is garbage. No single proportion on Megatron is correct. Nor is Rodimus\'s face even close to on-model - though the rest of him could be equally wrong and we\'ve just not seen enough of it elsewhere to know. When they do so many variant covers for a title getting a forced reboot for the allegedly lucrative issue #1 cash, you know a fair number of them are going to be lesser quality than the norm.

    I like the new look for Rodimus. The face really reminds me of his face in the 86 movie. 

    That cover art is better than anything Livio or Wildman ever gave us.

    I can see why you might think so if you were blind and someone was describing it to you verbally.

    I meant the actual face with the cheek structure, optics and chin smartass.

    And I meant in terms of it being better than anything from other artists who actually attempted to make the characters look like the characters.

    The face looks like nothing. Completely generic.

    Nope. Not at all. Not that it should have anyway, but still.

    Another awesome cover, those colors on Rodimus are really growing on me.

    That is not Rodimus Prime. Please. This is why I don't read the comics. They take their creative license to extremes. I thought it was Windblade or some other unknown being crammed into G1. Look, you can create an entirely new universe and then fill it with whomever and whatever you want, but quit messing with the essential aesthetics of canonical characters.

    That being said, for all I know this could precisely be one of those new universes, because, well, I don't read the comics.
