    Apologies if this has been posted elsewhere. Admittedly we knew this was coming because toys but it's an official announcement that it's out from IDW in August.

    Also, further apologies to how CBR switched to "TURN OFF ADBLOCK OR ELSE".

    Pretty much confirms the final SG figure will be a Titan, right?

    This is why I have a browser addon installed that lets you click on and hide html elements. VERY useful.

    Incidentally, things I'm digging in this description
    -Magnus is the villain!
    -GANGSTER WRECKERS

    Things I'm not digging:
    -How the CBR article author makes MULTIPLE mistakes. Like saying "April" at one point and calling Hasbro Pulse "Hasbro Plus".

    Hopefully they apply the same "SURE WHY NOT?!" level of fun that brought Powerhug to BW, Moon to Last Bot Standing....etc.

    Well, the first mini was really good! So expectations are high for this new one given it's the same creative team. Managed to tell a fairly decent story.

    Presumably Metrotitan, given the tease in the first mini.

    So… does IDW losing Transformers put a kibosh on a potential SG3? I really want new toys for SG Grimlock, Hot Rod, and Jazz…

    We've seen the head of Metroplex in the 1st SG series.

    If your question is "which character" there is your answer.

    If your question is "which mold"..... T30 is the obvious answer, but almost 9 years old. Since we only have seen the head, it COULD be possible to retool the upcoming "cybertron universe" Metroplex to have a G1 head and use that. While unlikely, this is my GUESS, as no other use of this new mold is readily apparent.

    Metroplex in Metrotitan colors. Remember, this is SG, where we have an Ultra Magnus that doubles as Delta Magnus

    Comic wise, maybe. Toy wise, absolutely not.

    And maybe the new home of the license can hire some of the IDW talent who was working on the Shattered Glass series! Doesn't necessarily have to be THE END the end. Continuities do continue through different publishers sometimes.

    Feels like they should be putting more effort into making sure the main book doesn't end on a low note before they lose the license.

    Or maybe they're already resigned to that and looking for other ways to go out with a bang.
