    I don't know who thunderwing is but at first glance with all the fire, I thought the Fallen has broken out of the cage they put him in.

    Awesome! Kinda had a warm, fuzzy familiar feeling about the colors, but didn't want to jump the gun.:D

    Gads, my eyes just about popped out of their sockets when I realized that had to be Thunderwing. And the concept of having all four issues coming together to form a bigger scene seems all right to me.

    And has anyone noticed that the other solicitations seem to have been lost among the excitement over "Stormbringer" (which is understandable)? I gotta wonder what's going to happen in the "Hearts Of Steel" story with Starscream and John Henry; now there's a character combo I'd have never thought about in 13 lifetimes...!

    Yay, I thought masculine TM Airazor, too-- but now that people have mentioned it, it's definitely Thunderwing. Wheee!

    Interesting...

    When I saw the fire, I thought The Fallen, which would've been not so cool IMHO.

    Then I noticed TM Airrazor's wings, and was like WTF?!

    It wasn't until I read the thread that I made the Thunderwing/Stormbringer connection.

    P.S.: funny I can't stop thinking about Beta Ray Bill's hammer (named Stormbreaker) when I read Stormbringer. :D

    In the first pic he looks like Thunderwing, in the second pic he looks like a combo of Universe Razorclaw and Energon Megatron...

    Either way, I already hope that Hasbro makes a TF toy out of him. Maybe a Botcon exclusive! Hahaha, yeah

    I wonder if he will be a herald of Unicron...

    Thunderwing, awesome!

    Assuming that Stormbringer continues the same G1 title started by Infiltration though, it's irritating that they're starting over at #1. I hate rebooting the numbering every time a series hits a TPB friendly number. You can still subtitle the story arc but continue the numbering as an ongoing series.

    Unless it means that the end of Infiltration means the end of Gundam legs and stupid Bumblebee designs, in which case ignore that last paragraph.

    Wait, they've dumped Infiltation just as it was building up speed and are instead releasing an entirely new series featuring "fan favourite" most readers probably never even heard of?

    Any chance they'll do a Micromasters series next and REALLY kill off the chances of making the year?

    I'm wicked excited for this, i haven't been able to muster up much in the way of enthusiasm for Infiltration.

    I'd imagine this series will flow from the first one based on the solicit referancing it, and being the same writer...

    Wait, Infiltration was building up speed? I fell asleep reading it.

    Can you give us a hint why he's on fire, and if that effect will follow for the duration of the series? It'd be nice if there was a reason this time (with The Fallen it always seemed to be because Pat was very keen on the 'kewl' visual, even though it was Wildman who was handed the character to draw.)

    Yeah, and it makes sense that TFs infiltrating a backwards world would have more blocky and less stylised robot modes, as they have to fit inside Earth vehicles.

    Think the 'Headmasters' miniseries back in the days of Marvel. As far as I know the main title won't be renumbered -- I likewise certainly hope it doesn't. I'm also hoping Escalation simply isn't previewed yet (the Stormbringer solicit turning up on Amazon forced IDW's hand early, so they may be looking to avoid a repeat) or will just be taking a month out whilst Stormbringer launches.

    As soon as I saw the pic, I thought "THUNDERWING! FREAKING AWESOME!" I recall an interview a while back with IDW's editor (can't recall name at the moment) and he was asked about "fan favorite" characters like Nightbeat, Bludgeon, Scorponok, and Thunderwing. The respose that "one of those characters will appear early on". Now we know who it is. I just assumed Nightbeat because he's a car.

    I still want to see Nightbeat on Earth. :D

    I dunno if it's been mentioned already, though does anyone get an Energon Megatron meets Vampiric Pretender feel from that redesigned Thunderwing?
