    Damn, taken too soon. I don´t think this franchise would be where it is if it wasn´t for him. say what you want about g1, it´s iconic. a bunch of that iconicity coming from David.

    The thumbnail is wrong. That's the composer David Wise. Known for his work on Rare games. Not the writer David Wise.

    Grateful to have met him and chatted with him at TFCON Toronto 2018. I'm sure he enjoyed that TF alumni reunion at TFCON Burbank in 2019. Condolences to his family, RIP.

    Rest in peace. Very talented man and super nice guy. He created a lot of what would carry on in the world of transformers. Thank you... but I believe that the man in the picture is a different David Wise. Might need to change the photo...
