    I actually think this is decent. I\'ll form a proper opinion once I read issue 1. But I like the fact you\'ve got Generations Selects\' bots in there like Hotshot and Ricochet. And yeah I love the designs here as well.

    I do too.

    I'm a fan of wreckers since 86 and I love the idea of new characters playing their part within the most famous autobot unit.

    As I've said so glad to have the generation selects figures now.

    I'm all for looking for the good in things.

    Art looks great.

    New character choices are great.

    New direction and concept for the Wreckers is creative and sounds fun.

    Does that mean it's gonna be a great book? Not necessarily. But it's a good start and it makes me happy it's coming and excited for when it comes out.

    -ZacWilliam, I'm willing to meet new TF media halfway and come in willing and open to what it is and what it wants to do. If it strikes me as not my thing I move on and forget about it pretty instantly. There's more than enough TF stuff to do that easily. Hating on things and focusing first and foremost on "flaws" before somethings in your hands seems like a recipe for being miserable.

    what’s weird about this? Characters are clean, on model and well detailed. Perhaps more toy-like than usual but that’s a good thing. This is nothing like Beast Wars. There’s more personality in those three preview pages than anything so far from the new Beast Wars.

    It looks like a fun light-hearted romp right now; this is likely the calm before the storm. Since it’s called the Wreckers I expect the story to go to violent and dark twisted places featuring our new friends. I’d have completely different expectations if it wasn’t called The Wreckers.

    Why are we still here? Just to suffer?

    I agree but I'd maybe change that last bit. No one has to leave but just enjoy what you've gotten and if it really bothers you fan content is a thing. What better way to stick it to the man then making it yourself.

    Welcome to the Internet.
    -
    ...on topic though:

    did ...did IDW just find a reason for me to care about the franchise as a comic series again???!

    Get Springer, Whirl, Roadbuster, Pyro, Rotorstorm, and Ironfist. NOW!

    I know. I get it. You don't have to leave but if something doesn't bring joy then for your own sake look elsewhere. Of course you can draw on the past of the franchise but in my experience that can make you more disillusioned when the current offering doesn't live up to the past

    You mean other than it’s clearly Minerva’s head and not Override’s?

    It’s actually Circuit using his Action Master partner!

    All we have is a cover and people are jumping to conclusions about the quality and content of the book. It’s kinda silly since covers are typically meaningless in comics. Judge the cover I suppose but anything beyond that is just complaining out of habit.

    Just curious, but why do you put a \ when you use apostrophes?

    That looks fun.

    And fuck knows, \"fun\" is in short supply in the current mainline book.

    I\'m certain there will be an awful twist that leads what appears to be the Cybertronian version of Nitro Circus becoming a grim and gritty team of assassins, tho.

    If you "Reply" from the news article instead of navigating to the thread first, it parses certain special characters oddly.

    The slashes are escaping stuff like quotes. Which is used by whatever code is processing the input on the post request.

    The tone of these first few pages makes me think they're going after a style more like what James Gunn is doing for Suicide Squad.

    Instead of a grimdark setting, you go darkly comedic. These guys are cocky because they're good at what they do. And who knows, maybe the whole story is a humbling moment for them as a team.

    The art on this looks bright and fantastic and it looks like quite the unique group (freaking MINERVA!).

    Definitely excited.

    I will comment on the comics as almost no one is: I think the planet colonia is Velocitron because of this part: "When the security detail of the Speedia 500, an actual race for governmental control of an entire world is threatened".

    While I'm an old school Wrecker line up fan (Springer, Kup, Impactor). Plus new members from other continuities (Like Bulkhead, Strong Arm. Even WheelJack). This is kinda cool with Hotshot (Who supposedly in his Prime toy bio, he was paired with Kup and a member of The Wreckers as a recruit).

    Judging by this line up, its gonna be all happy, awesome adventures....till...it gets sad...kinda depressing...and Hotshot is the last member....And he goes cynical and withered to the times...Till Kup shows up (doubtful but hey) and tells him "I've lost more members in the old line up than you Kid". He joins the old line up....and well....rips and tears.

    This is gonna be me when it hit sad

    I could have sworn there was a saying about this. What was it? You can't judge a rhino by its horn? No, that's not it... I think it had something to do with books and covers.
