    Galaxies is ending? That's surprising. Still, the description definitely implies that the war will begin in November.

    Also, I'm glad to see more Wheeljack. It should be interesting to see him trying to come up with a solution.

    Alright, so my thoughts on all this.

    Firstly, I really like Gigawatt\'s designe, so the Back To The Future crossover at least promises to be visually pleasing.

    Really looking forward to Transformers #24, especially since all of its covers look great. Even the B-cover, despite being the weakest of the bunch, having its characters giving some nice expressions and fallowing up on that whole gears-has-trouble-with-gravity sub-plot.

    Speaking of covers, while Galaxie 12\'s covers also look great, I hate that the A and B covers have practically no diffurences between them. I mean, for pitties sake, Ultra Magnus is even positioned on the same side (the right) in both of them.

    As for Galaxies coming to an end at issue 12, I don\'t like that but I understand why it\'s happening. So far, I have had to by all of Galaxies issues directly from IDW\'s website because my local comic shop just hasn\'t been getting them (ans even then I wait to buy several issues in bulk because shipping is expensive); combine that with IDW having to stop publishing for several months, and it makes sence that they\'d cut their losses with this side series.

    That was my 1st impression too, lol.
    Yeah, completely agree with you with both cover being the same. Since cover A looks busy and dynamic, I have no problem with cover B being more static or just UM in the normal A stand emphasizing the new armor. That would works for me.

    The new armor kind of remind me of Prime UM w/ the jetpack. My nitpick with this armor, I wish the knee blaster on the side was placed on the side of shoulder instead...and the Autobot insignia on the front not on the side of the shoulder.

    As cool as these covers are, seeing such a heavily Sunbow-esque Bumblebee without headlights on his feet feels oddly heretical.

    Wonder if the reference to armor means Magnus has a white Optimus body underneath the armor. Though disappointing to see Galaxies is ending.

    Hyped for the TF/BTTF crossover.

    Wow didn’t see that coming transformer crossover with back to future it will be very kind friendly not as violent never thought of that crossover.,

    Still like to see crossover with justice league and aliens dc predator but mainly importantly star wars I sing petition pay on Kickstarter to see transformers have crossover with Star Wars and justice league

    all he needs is big logo on his chest and cape transformers can make in comics faster than speeding blurr, more powerful than unicron able to leap metroplex in single bound super magnus

    Not really surprised galaxies is ending but it does mention a new tf event following on so maybe the war is properly starting and maybe there's a couple of titles that will cover the war.

    Magnus looks interesting. He's one of my favorite transformers so I'll enjoy his story in galaxies

    Hot damn, talk about the Mandela effect! For a fleeting moment I was wondering if I should check some cartoon footage, but I was so sure of myself! You're absolutely right, even in the comics Bee was depicted without headlights on his feet more frequently than not. I think I was looking too much at (otherwise excellent) updated G1 art like this:
    [​IMG]

    Either that or it was MP Bee v2 not going out of its way to hide the headlights in robot mode that has messed with my memory.

    It took a long time for me to realise it as well, you know the feet are the front of the car so you assume all the car parts are there. I think when cleaning up the models for simpler animation the headlights were the first to go, along with the tires :)
