    Oh, IDW. If only you'd put as much effort into quality writing as you do coming up with alternate covers.

    I think it's wonderful. First Aid's pose could have been updated from the original one maybe, but it's not a big deal.

    OBJECTION!

    Prime's been in a few issues of the ongoing, he's just not leading the Autobots anymore. And Megatron has been hinted at (I'm a little behind, so he may be awake by now), but for now, he's like Animated Season 1 Megatron.

    One of Casey's favourite characters is First Aid which is why I think he got a kick out of giving him that pose... I was laughing every time I had to colour anything on him!

    The empty space is only empty because the exact text wasn't finalised at the moment the cover was being announced, but the finished cover will be in keeping with the original cover in terms of placements etc. The original version had a hand drawn Transformers logo in the style of the X-Men logo but it had to be changed to the standard logo at the last minute so there might be a tiny bit more white overall but nothing too far from the original.

    Marvel run: Optimus Prime was leader for maybe half the series, Megatron for like 1/10th of the run.
    G2 was the only one where the really primarily featured.
    Dreamwave: They were around most of Volume 1, Prime but not Megatron was in all of V2, and neither of them really featured in V3 except Megatron is the last couple of issues. They only featured in War Within V1 as well and were missing in V2 and Megatron was sort of about to come back in V3 before it cancelled.
    Since IDW has been in charge they started by intentionally not introducing Megatron and Prime until the later part of the -ation series, then Megatron got AHM with Prime not in until the end, and now we have the ongoing where Bumblebee is leader (what?) and not Prime who now gets little "screen time" and Megatron is missing.

    I understand not wanting to pay all your attention to the leaders to give everyone else some time in the light too - but the comics have always found ways to just completely sweep the two of them aside for lengthy amounts of time just to have them come back for a little bit and then gets pushed out of the way again.

    Tell me, just counting the time in which IDW has been in charge, how many times have we actually seen Prime and Megatron face off in IDW's run the last few years? Like twice.
