    Totally. Eventually Hasbro will run out of Optimus bodies to homage and they’ll get to Machine Wars and Thunderclash is one of the few repaint options.

    From some hints and Hasbro's usual desire to put the toys they have coming out foremost into media, I wouldn't be surprised if we see him in the next year or two.

    I don't like to read into comic characters being an indication that a toy version is coming, but it sounds like the artist based Minerva off an upcoming figure, so a Thunderclash isn't too far out of the question. I would be totally okay with them leaving out his trailer, just give us his giant turbine guns, & keep his crazy colors.

    Also, give us a Razorbeast toy, please.

    Solicitations for November went up today so I can share my cover for Transformers Wreckers: Tread and Circuits #1! I think this is the first time I've ever drawn these two characters too. Interior story is by David Mariotte and drawn by @jlawrence_art !

    Sadly, Roberts has opted to take an extended sabbatical from writing TF. Last I heard about Roche he'd moved on to do Robotech fiction.

    MMC loves him more than Hasbro ever have.

    Mei boi Razorbeast up in here! Love me some Gathering! :)

    Hot Shot being a jeep is still a baffling thing to me. Like the only reason he\'s a Hound retool was to sell an extra toy with the excuse that there was some tennuous connection with his Cybertron Defense upgrade. His whole thing is he\'s a fast speedster, only ever bulking up after being more or less obliterated and being brought back armed to the teeth to combat a similarly upgraded Megatron. But what this Hot Shot is referencing is this:

    And the Hound body doesn\'t nearly represent this well enough. I don\'t know, why is the toy mandate so strong these days? It used to be that when a new character appeared in the comics they would more often than not have their own unique design that complimented the character.

    I really like the BW covers by Anna Malkova and Casey Coller (Hi Razorbeast!) but one aspect of the Coller cover cracks me up a little and it's Nyx's pose. I get that it's supposed to look like she's about to take flight with her wings spread, and her positioning at the top of the cover reflects that, but it looks like she's T-posing to assert dominance. :lol 

    If what happened behind the scenes with WFC is anything to go by, Hasbro is really pushing for consistency nowadays, arguably to the detriment of everything else. This is a logical outcome of what happened with Prime, where they had no creative control over their big flagship series so now they've swung too far in the opposite direction. The toy-accuracy across the board is merely a symptom of this.
