    Aye well done Columbo, that's the point, it's a hyper stylisation, it's not trying to be real.

    Was that more father/daughter? Cap/Widow was more a partnership.

    But, seriously? Either works. Hell, Nyx/Dinobot being fatherly would probably work better since Cheetor/Tigatron was more brotherly.

    But I will say just because she's short doesn't make her young, so she could be the same age as Dinobot or at least around that age, so maybe something like Steve and Nat.

    Personality wise she comes off as a bit more like Cheetor. Young but less of a hothead (which isn't quite the right word).

    I’d doubt it. Question is, who else would work well in a fantasy world?

    I want Inferno-cons, Terrorcons, Predacons, Insecticon and every single beast Decepticon to try and fight Grimlock like its DOOM

    "In the first age, in the first battle, when the shadows first lengthened, one stood. Burned by the embers of Armageddon, his spark blistered by the fires of

    The Pit and tainted beyond ascension, he chose the path of perpetual torment.

    In his ravenous hatred he found no peace, and with boiling energon he scoured the Umbral Plains seeking vengeance against the dark lords who had

    wronged him.

    He wore the crown of the Dinobots, and those that tasted the bite of his sword named him... the Grim Slayer."

    Anyone who turns into a mythical creature. So maybe the Terrorcons, Monsterbots, Firecons, or Pretender Monsters.

    Was not expecting a story about Grimlock in a fantasy styled setting but man do I welcome it! :D  Really hope it lives up to the awesome potential it has.

    It can be done in isolation yes, but there is much more to generating content than producing art. I don't work in the industry so this is purely speculation, but I imagine collaborative works that use storytelling and visual aids can still be difficult to develop using online platforms. Not to mention once you get through hurdles of adjusting to online platforms and generating a cohesive vision, there are probably still delays on production and delivery. Perhaps IDW cooled their jets on producing content because it wouldn't even made it to the consumer in a timely manner. Like I said talking out my rear here just throwing out ideas

    Perhaps management at IDW just sucks at motivating employees to deadlines or can't get the teams to work cohesive enough. If that's the case I am sure change will come eventually

    Really want to see the Grimlock covers without the text, they all look really cool! Excited for that series along with the new Shattered Glass comic.

    Although im not canceling my order for Blurr, i still quite like the unique covers that come with the figures and the figure itself, but damn GOD Milne goes hard as usual
