Glad the chest doesn't look like this, but does he at least have the new shoulders and forearms of this design?
We are free to criticise toys, movies, cartoons and comic books here when they are flawed, and the people who make them. I like good stylisation. I don’t like bad stylisation. This is bad stylisation. And I have to read it because I’ve started reading Wreckers. I’m not going to drop an issue just because I don’t like the art, but I am going to criticise bad comic books for being bad if I think they are bad. Likewise, I will praise good comic books for being good when I think they are good. If a comic book continues to be good or bad, I will praise or criticise each and every individual issue.
This isn’t even the biggest Mohawk that Josh gave a character. Optimus Primal had an even larger Mohawk. This really should not be a thing.
Hi all, I know this is a comics thread so you may not be following some of the more toy/rumour threads where I've answered these questions previously.
Knockout is a partial/retool of SS86 Jazz, most of the retooling is on the alt mode, almost a reshell. New fender/bonnet, no spoiler different door detailing. He does have a new Prime accurate head tho.
Due to the new fender/bonnet Knockout also has a more accurate chest, but he doesn't have the spikeyness of the show model. No spikey shoulders or car door forearms either.
All in all a decent effort, but more on the Bulkhead side of being as much if a retool as budget would allow. And who knows if we buy/support the figure maybe we'll get better versions in the future
Superior Optimus eye colour prevails again.
That's fair enough.
As a figure, once you got the reprolabel set on him, he really wasn't that bad.
Guys, a not-so-friendly reminder to stay on topic. Thanks!
I'm a bit surprised Knock Out's head design is a bit different in the comic, well as long as the actual toys headsculpt pulls a Bulkhead, i'll be fine.
So that looks nothing like the Prime character except that he’s red. If this is any indication of his generations figure, Hasbro is 0-3 with the Prime characters
More money in my pocket

Damn, Giygas in IDW 2
I love it!
If this were for the first IDW-Verse, I would say this is the only visual representation we will ever likely get of the Simanzi Massacre.
I'm a blue eye Prime guy through and through but it does surprise me how rare they do give him the yellow eyes. I wouldn't be against it if they did it for the cartoons with that shade.
