    I guess it just lacks detail and characters models seem off to me, like the artist was on a tight deadline (which they probably were)

    I wish I could enjoy it as much as everyone else does, because the story is really getting interesting.

    Fair enough. I grew up on G1 and Animated, with the latter being my favourite show of all time. It went a long way to inspire my own personal art style. I guess I see a bit of Animated in this art, with how sharp and dynamic it is.

    Human faced Straxus is odd.

    Design looks more like someone's slash fiction variant.

    I'm assuming this is a young Straxus who will eventually become the merciless warlord we know and love.

    Effeminate Straxus.

    P.S. I'm surprised there are folks still buying IDW comics.

    This new Straxus design looks pretty slick, interested to see what they do with him.

    pretty generic and uninspired design. i preferred the bulky alien look of g1, or even his TFA look. i like humanizing the TFs, to a degree, but it just feels like its to much these days

    Eh, looks like they're going in two different directions. AHM is going for a semi-realistic g1 aesthetic, Escape is more exaggerated and dynamic.

    Different strokes for different folks, I suppose...

    But Straxus? Pfffft, get the man a faceplate at least.

    Don't artists here change hands anyway? Why make the reveal if at some point another guy will do another interpretation? Prime wasn't looking to boxy starting out but that got different overtime, I assume this will be the same.

    It looks like a japanese black recolor than the lord himself.

    Doesn't look like Straxus. Looks like generic anime tumblr-quality fan art.

    Alright, prediction time: the new design is a pre-war politician body thus the scrawny, humanized design, in the climax of Escape he's going to get his ass handed to him by the Hound and the other protagonists resulting in Straxus dawning his iconic face plate and getting his bulky look we all know and love.

    It reminds me very much of Alex Milne's art, which I vehemently hate.
