    Not a G1 character.

    More like "do not care", though.

    It's going to be killed anyway.


    The design's rather weak and generic... But the actual G1 generics were pretty much the same way so no surprise here.

    MEG : Prime...I.... need to tell you something..
    PRIME : What is it, my old friend ?
    MEG : I... I... I ALWAYS LOVED YOU !!!!

    MEG : DAMN YOU PRIME!!!!! YOU REJECTED ME FOR THE LAST TIME !! THIS IS WAR !!!!

    Optimus had a choice to make. He could ignore that Megatron obviously wasn't following the rhythm of their game of patty cake. Or, he could keep it real...
    "Megs you cheated"
    *Record scratch* What Optimus didn't realize was that Megatron would retaliate with a war that would light the cosmos on fire for the next 4 million years...

    All you people with your filthy minds making something dirty of something innocent meant for children.

    It's Cybertronian sign language.

    Chirolinguistics - Transformers Wiki

    Just two people holding each other's hands to stimulate the nervecircuits to express their thoughts and feelings towards on another. I don't know how you could possible interpret that in any other way.

    I was expecting this guy to be an audience surrogate and someone we'd see grow over time but him being the first murder victim in centuries would be one hell of a surprise.

    I imagine newsparks might look pretty generic when they're fresh out of the well, so to speak. Customization happens later on and by choice, basically.

    Either that or there's some serious favoritism going on with Primus or whoevers in charge of shaping these guys. Or laziness going by how some people like Bumblebee, Cliffjumper and Tap-Out having pretty much the same design sans paintjob. Meanwhile Tracks got the whole hog. No wonder he's got an ego.

    So it looks like some elements from the previous countinuity made it into the new one.

    Quite boring and derpy posed, if you ask me.

    It kind of looks like one of those Tumblr posts where the characters have been removed from a comic panel and put onto a blank image. Just needs a pair of flowers crowns for their heads and some petals falling down.

    I'm actually quite curious what the context behind the image is, if there even is one, because I don't imagine it's the one that immediately springs to mind. I mean, it could be, in which case the Great War has got to be the single most ugliest divorce in the history of the universe.

    Instead of opening on the Golden Age of Cybertron and the gradual decline of its society culminating in a civil war, it instead opens on the Conjux Endura ceremony between Optimus Prime and Megatron and the gradual decline of their marriage culminating in the worst divorce in the history of ever.

    Now I can't stop imagining how that would work, like Megatron so unhappy with the court ruling that he decides to just blow up the court and dismantle the whole system of government and make his own so he gets to decide who gets to keep the damn couch which, for the record, he used far more than Optimus so it shouldn't matter who bought it.

    On second thought, I’ll just keep my $8/month.
