    Nice I guess. It's a strange choice by the artist to go this route since it's pretty much a continuity error all on its own. Also it kind of feels like the artist just didn't want to draw a bayverse design and decided to go with this one because it's G1 (and simpler).

    Wich it's strange, IDW has been making movie comics since years ago until DOTM, with the same aesthetic as the movies (well, not at all).

    Okay, so I took it upon myself to create my own version of movie Bumblebee with a mouth. I made the side vents look closer to the film version, which gives him a more bare jaw. I also shrank down the chin, so it feels more plausible that his mouth can fit behind the speaker.

    I'm by no means trying to say I'm a better artist or a better robot designer than the person who drew the cover, but on a personal level I think I would have preferred something closer to this. I feel like it's more recognizable as movieverse Bumblebee, and avoids the somewhat generic look.

    I really like the prequel face, but I appreciate your attention to detail and effort to blend the two based on available images

    Lmao, I come back after months gone and people are arguing about a face. It looks okay, I prefer gimp mask Bumblebee though. Drives the alien idea home for me. ;) 

    Surprisingly, I am actually excited about the trade paperback itself. I like little self-contained stories like this, and if it's anything like the previous Transformers: Bumblebee trade paperback (the one by Zander Cannon and others), I am 100% down.

    There's no way the artist gets to make that kind of decision. Books don't work that way.

    That's a quick release of a trade series for a comic series that recently concluded.

    I've read the first three issues (not due to pick up my monthly load until November) and it's not really hooked me. How well did the singles sell? It hasn't had much discussion in the TF Comics sub-forum, which is usually pretty telling of popularity.
    Or were people just waiting for the trade?
    When's the movie out? Maybe it's trying to hit that. Or perhaps the singles sold poorly and getting the trade out there in time for the movie might boost sales more. Certainly as a trade it's more likely to end up in places that sell books but not single comic issues.
