    I think the new characters are:

    - Roulette.
    - Armordillo.
    - Railspike.
    - Gimlet.
    - Oiler.
    - Slide.

    I think that's Armada Demolisher.

    Preview looks cool.

    I'm getting somewhat of a Blackout vibe from the guy to the left of Warpath.

    it's definitely blackout. you can just make out a split cockpit and his head is a deadringer for the movie character.

    i like seeing future autobots protesting the murder of an innocent. it really makes sense.

    i'm just excited to see more orion pax. i loooove pre-optimus/pre-megatron stories.

    gimlet's doing a great job at his disguise. earth is filled with truck-sized lobsters.

    super hyped to see roulette show up!

    Looks like the cast is going to exclude more side characters. I recognise Railspike, Bump, Roulette, Gimlet but not sure about the truck. Also is that Blackout?

    "Trolling."

    It's still really, really weird when TFs use internet phrases and words. Like when Starscream said "cosplay."

    The art is interesting, but i have nothing but contempt for where IDW has taken the pre-war backstory.
    Just completely distasteful and uninteresting to me.

    ...and i don't even want to know why there is a giant lobster.

    Kind of on the fence about this one. I have loved every story set in Cybertron's past....but i really hate any Transformers story thats bogged down by humans (been skipping the core transformers book pretty much since "Combiner Wars" as a result)

    Of course Transformers comics usually have to be pre-ordered at my FLCS, so if I don't get it now I may not get it until later

    Of course with a new cast of characters, wondering if this could be the start of another "Lost Light" Ensemble

    Cant be Railspike; he's on the Lost Light. But the others make sense. Colors are right to be Roulette, too. My guess is Rapid Run as the colors are closer to him

    Might be Jackpot.

    Also, is that Rosanna punching out a cop?

    I really think that what's actually on the page means more than an off-handed "sure, why not" given in a letters page. Personally, that's just not enough to make me think that's not Railspike.

    We'll find out. Could be a member of Raiden, but I won't be insisting it's not Railspike because hey, the comic comes out soon enough that complaining is counterproductive

    Perhaps it's a situation like Punishment?

    Bomburst and Blood both showed up in IDW continuity, so Railspike could be on the Lost Light and J-5 is part of the transformers on Earth?
