IDW Transformers: Dawn of the Autobots Teaser Images

Postby Va'al » Tue Jan 14, 2014 3:49 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Thanks to the IDW Publishing Twitter account, we have a teaser image of what will potentially be the aftermath of the Dark Cybertron event. We see a Casey W. Coller Orion Pax (or Optimus Prime?) standing under the banner 'After the Dark' with a moon shining in the back and a new dawn rising over an Earth-like planet - could this be the Dawn of the Autobots monicker we've seen before? Discuss in the Energon Pub, and check out the latest preview of Dark Cybertron #6!

This image can only mean one thing, after Dark Cybertron Optimus Prime/ Orion Pax reveals that he's been Unicron all along! And after growing to his normal planet munching size he makes an attempt to eat Earth!

Or he changes his name back to Prime and takes command of the Autobots once more, that would kinda work too.

The Unicron theory is more likely, I agree.

I certainly wish they would. At the very least, re-release the Classics voyager mold. It is still a viable figure.

Personally, I'm not such a fan of this robot mode... It's not bad, just not particularly great either. Something about the front windows just doesn't feel right and those shoulder pads are a little too "1990's female news anchor" for my tastes...

I hate you.

But seriously, he's okay. With Barber editing, I'm sure we won't have the continuity mess we had with AHM. just hopefully he doesn't royally screw things up.

I can see it now. Arcee is going to become...how shall I say...infatuated, with the first ever Cybertronian like herself that she's ever met. The femslash writes itself.

Looks loads better than the initial concept we were shown back at SDCC 2013. If we don't get a Slipstream redeco/retool, I will be extremely disappointed.

Eh, tossing Flamewar into that mess might just make things worse.

Right on about Slipstream. Considering what we learned about 2 of Windy's casemates yesterday, it'd seem like a waste not to retool her into someone else, and red and blue make purple anyway.

I'm so excited for this character.

She looks awesome in that pic, and she's gonna be penned by an awesome writer.

Bring on Windblade!

While Slipstream would be good and all, I would like to see an Airazor from this instead. Besides, TFCC just did a Slipstream under the pretense that Hasbro wasn't going to be using the character anytime soon. However, that was before they needed to make Windblade and it's possibly inevitable retool.

It would be even better to see Airazor with her own mold as seen with her beast era cohorts but I doubt that she'd get her own new mold toy outside of wishfully a new Tigerhawk.

Airazor fits very well with what they intend on doing with Windblade. The names are extremely similar and Japanese Airazor was the ward to Tigatron who was a samurai. Although they could just dump the swords for some claw type weapons instead.

Just me being hopeful.

With all the influx of new Beast Wars toys, why not a brand new Airazor all together?

One question about Windblade. What is she holding in her left hand? It sort of looks like a blaster, but its held at an odd angle. Is this anything of significance. (mind you I am reading the IDW books in trades and have not started Dark Cybertron yet)

I'm with you about a new Airazor. If Rhinox is any indication, she'd be ace.

And it looks like the thing in Windblade's left hand is the scabbard of her sword.The shape of the sword's hilt matches.
