IDW's Transformers Shattered Glass: Milne Issue #3 Cover A Line Art - Transformers News - TFW2005
Alex Milne reminding us that there is still such a thing as quality TF art. <3
"Not your average TF story!" *proceeds to describe average TF story*
#80 in a 5 issue limited series.
It would be cool if Razorbeast truly appears.
Even cooler if he gets a new toy, preferably a Deluxe.
The IDW2 origin of Decepticons is not equal to that origin and the origin of IDW1 at all. And this is also not the origin of Autobots in IDW1 and IDW2.
Is that SG Metrotitan?
Oh hey, Blackarachnia\'s gonna debut!
And there\'s been a Shattered Glass comic going on?

It's entirely possible that the RI cover is just Milne opting to draw Razorbeast because Razorbeast is fuckin' cool, but Josh has said that a character that wasn't in the show would be appearing in the 9th issue so I agree, this seems like a pretty major giveaway. It'd make sense-- Razorbeast is one of the first figures released for the entire line, his design is relatively sharp and angular compared to a lot of other BW characters meaning he'd translate pretty smoothly to Josh's art style, and if he does stick around his color balance would let him stick out from the rest of the Axalon crew. Most of them have cold colors-- Primal being a toy-accurate black, Rhinox is tan, Rattrap a medium range grey, Dinobot a nice, earthy brown and Nyx more of a light grey. Tigatron is white and Airazor a very dark grey in-show, almost black, so the only one with warm colors out of the Season 1 cast is Cheetor. In the aesthetic regard alone Razorbeast would be nicely complimentary, adding a nice splash of red to the group shot.
It's not Razorbeast. It's a new character that just has the same design as Razorbeast, just like Whatsit and Thingamy.
He's also an easy retool from Kingdom Rattrap.
Remind me which character Nyx's design is based on? And you can't say Optimus Primal because he's already there.
Though I agree in principle that characters who are just shameless reuses of existing character models are lazy. Throw Tigatron and Blackarachnia in the trash where they belong.
True enough, though to be frank I'd prefer it if Razorbeast got his own dedicated mold at some point, possibly a Deluxe or larger because pigs get big.
Is it bad that I want a farm animal sub-team of Maximals. A chicken, a horse, a pig, a cow, etc...
I should add, besides Razorbeast the other character I'm hoping shows up is Wolfang. He was going to take Tigatron's slot originally in the show.
T30 Rattrap perhaps, but not Kingdom Rattrap, given the way the rear legs transform.
I can say Optimus Primal, and will say Optimus Primal, and I'm not alone in saying Optimus Primal. From the TFWiki:
"...her bestial Earth body was designed in homage to the bat Optimus Primal toy (also known as Convobat in Japan)"
To suggest it's not in reference to Optimus Primal's bat design is inane.
They turned Chromia in to Tentakill. Changing up those rear legs is nothing by comparison.
Oh okay so you want them to have her be Optimus Primal instead of Nyx. While Optimus Primal is already there in his cartoon accurate form.
That makes sense.
On a Deluxe class figure, doable. On a Core class figure, no.
She's not Optimus Primal, just as Skold isn't Snapper. They've just taken their designs.
If you're not going to understand the discussion, don't take part.
Your original complaint was they were new characters who took designs from others.
But the problem with that argument with regards to Nyx is the character who used that design originally is already standing next to her on the Axalon.
If you're mad she's not Sonar, then stop framing your complaint that she's stealing someone's mold. Because Sonar never had that form and it'd be just as much a deviation.
And, besides, the whole point of taking existing molds is so if the character is popular the odds of a figure go up much quicker as there's a baked in repaint (or in the case of Nyx, 2 or 3).
Finally something new in transformer comics shattered glass official shattered glass comic look forward buy tpb of this series maybe get see some new characters in this
