    While I was less than thrilled that the magazine was giving space (especially in these, their last days) to these guys I consider non-entities (as opposed to guys we're getting exclusive toys of, for example), I'm pleased to see the high res art. Thanks for posting.

    I still love these. Nice to see female Dinoformers but they look interesting and have good transformation schemes.

    I really like that they don't all transform thebsane way. Great work!

    Thrash's face reminds me a bit of Demona from Gargoyles...

    They look nice! Too bad they're a few of the many, many, cool creations that will likely never get toy representation.

    So they commissioned these drawings with their license ending and little chance to use these designs in toys or media?

    They are very cool designs but I am curious why they did this. I guess i would have focussed on something big with their existing canon.

    Also, wasn't there meant to be a lot more raptors in the last Bay movie (or this new one).

    They've already been used in one of the recent prose stories.

    I love that they're the feathered models. I like Thrashclaw's design/colors the most but Shred being a Velociraptor predisposes him to be my favorite.

    These ladies need toys yesterday. I don't even care what they're like as characters, they just look so damn cool.

    Matt really is a great artist. I've loved his Godzilla art for years but I think he also does a great job with TFs and would love to see him do more of them.
