    Somebody remembered Minerva exists?

    Weird, random but welcome choices.

    Because you got so bored of the likes of Ricochet in The Last Stand Of The Wreckers?

    Ooh, this is a curious lineup.

    EDIT: Interesting how they have a different insignia too.

    Can I also join in on judging before reading?

    I will say that it's actually cool to see recent figures as main characters while also using their toy designs.

    What? I like these covers and choices. It reminds me of MTMTE / Lost Light. Personally though I would have added an obscure Decepticon instead of Aileron just to throw out instant red flags to long time fans.

    Who knows how this will turn out.
    Memes aside, I'm curious to see in what direction they're taking this.

    No, just bored of IDW not doing anything to cement its own identity, instead being a soft retreading of its previous self. I'm waiting for that one thing that will grab me and finally feel like an inspired, new idea. IDW1's Wreckers were such a distinct take on what was an oft-forgotten corner of TF lore, (at least in the mainstream TF media) so to see them do that again is disappointing.

    It just feels a bit cynical. IDW2 still doesn't feel like its own thing.

    Now just give us updated TOYS for all of these characters that haven’t been done yet.

    Also I have a feeling this is a red herring cover and they’ll all suffer brutal deaths….

    They desperately need a comic book that will be well received and sells well. IDW tried new stuff. It Doesn't Work. Your complaining just comes across as you not wanting a book that is guaranteed success among fans.

    Going by the covers, this is an all different team. You can't be tired of a team that has never been a team before. I imagine if the book stayed the same but was not called The Wreckers, you would call it an inspired new idea.

    Transformers is primarily a nostalgia property for long term nostalgic fans. Of course it will often delve into nostalgia and familiarity.

    It's all new characters for the Wreckers.

    With a different symbol.

    With a VERY different take on what the Wreckers are. Here they are a galaxy renowned troup of Daredevil Entertainers and Stunt Performers using that as a cover for being a secret special missions team.

    -ZacWilliam, they're kinda like the A-Team operating undercover as a group of Evel Kinievels. That's very different and original for them.

    This is good news. Been a wreckers fan since their debut in marvel UK.

    I look forward to seeing where this goes.
