4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

I know this is Wings Universe, that art style feels more Marvel-esque to me.

Also, I think that's Clamp Down instead of Red Alert.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

You're right, it is Clamp Down. Blast you nigh-identical redecos!

Speaking of Guzzle, I wouldn't mind seeing a new version of Generation One Guzzle (no one bring up the movie-verse [Revenge of the Fallen or Hunt for the Decepticons?]) Legends Guzzle). One can never have too many tank Transformers. :x

Looks like a cross between Nic Roache and Geof Senoirs styles.

Certainly bet the Dan Khannas art.

Well, if Megaplex and his clone army are as powerful as the press blurb suggested, then it shouldn't come as a surprise. Obsidian and Strika are left with a bunch of C and D listers to fight after all the well known guys got killed off.

I applaud this move; it puts the focus on some characters more than a few new fans may never have even heard of.


Addendum: Perhaps a hint to other convention toys? We might see Generations Warpath redecoed into Guzzle...

Lines have been drawn and armies are being formed, it's only a matter of time before the battle! :D Now I am just glad that we finally got something other than artist updates, also I'm glad that the Machine Wars finally got a good story!

Let's see, Dogfight needs Anger Management, Backstreet is a bundle of nerves and jumps to conclusions (kinda like me), Guzzle is a guzzler but otherwise a fierce fighter (he should be as a Wrecker), and Hardhead is straightforward to a fault.

They really know how to pick them :lol:
