A quick TFwiki check reveals to me that the first and last are definitely the bots we're looking for! Not too sure about Windsweeper, IIRC the bot's chest was grey, V-shaped, and everything else red. There's a bunch of guys in Soundwave's clique, I'll try and describe them later today after work, when I get back home. :)

'Kay.

Looking through the G1 toyline, I can't find much of anyone who'd fit that description. :-?

It probably was Cliffjumper, as his Classics incarnation mentioned at some point (possibly in a bio) that he had been offline after the Underbase.

I was very excited about this when it first became news. I am still looking forward to it, albeit a bit guarded. I will most likely have a stroke if iDW lets Furman write it as he did the Marvel stuff, it's been a long time since I read a good TF comic. I grew up on the G1 comics, as far as I'm concerned, no other continuity compares. Hopefully this will be done right.

Sorry, I have been hiding under a rock. So this series picks up from issue 80 from 20 years ago? So they are reviving the old continuity? And if so how does that mesh with the new continuity?

Yep. =P~ :DANCE:

It doesn't, as far as I know. And I hope it won't. It needs to stand alone, if it lives up to the original.

What new continuity? You mean the one that encompasses WFC, Exodus, Prime, Exiles, Rescue Bots, and FOC?

Simply put, this is a G1 continuity comic, set in a version of the Marvel G1 comic continuity. It's its own entity, being tied to nothing but the Marvel G1 comics. ;)

I'm going to go on a limb and say that our red plane is Windsweeper after all; I think the grey V corresponds to the toy's chest sticker. He's very much in the background.

Soundwave's grunts, in a bit more depth after a 87-88 toy search:

In the first panel of his address, I believe I see Horri-bull - in his original grey and blue colors. Next to him is Crankcase, Spinister, and who I believe to be Needlenose. Next to Needlenose is..someone with a very Onslaught-ish dark green and black color scheme with what looks to be a large barrel on his back, has a mouthpiece and yellow visor. Below him is either Pounce or Wingspan, arms folded, lookin' all moody. :D

Up front, before the superior mixing machine, we have Ruckus...next to someone who is completely green and purple. I want to say Skullcruncher but the legs are completely purple, and the chest and groin are green, with a purple pectoral attachment.

Next panel, SW is standing in front of four bots who are of a mostly green and purple coloration, but lighter (No, not our favorite building team :P)...and one seems to have some form of shiny sphere in his belly. O_o Next to them, off to the right is someone I can't identify for the life of me; grey torso from the little that can be seen of him, red mouthpiece, light blue visor, grey head-top with what is apparently a fin accessory on top.

Welp, that's that! If only these guys had had more than 3 eps on the show back when I was a kid, I might not have been having such trouble! (Only post-86 figures I owned as a kid were Apeface, the Decepticon Sports Car Patrol, and for some reason Roadgrabber...who I think I still have somewhere. :p)

Hmmm... must be mostly 1986-1990 Decepticons. :-?

So the events in this series meld with the stories from DW and IDW so far?

No. This the Marvel G1 comics continuity. Dreamwave G1 and IDW G1 have nothing to do with this.

This^^

From what I understand of it, this follows directly on from the old Marvel late G1/early G2 run and won't cross over with any of the other series at all. Must admit, I am really looking forward to seeing this having read the original comic in its UK weekly format from issue 3 onwards as a kid.

Motto: "Don't do drugs, beer's cheaper anyway!"
So I got around to reading mine too, the story is OK and it really does erase G2 from continuity since nothing is mentioned in the recounting of all of the important events that have taken place thus far.

I won't be collecting it however, the art is too much like the original series, as in horrendous.

Just to confirm the identities of the mystery Decepticons...

'Soundwave's Cabal'

Panel 1:

Front row (L-R) Ruckus, Sparkstalker, Wingspan (or possibly Pounce)
Back row (L-R) Battletrap, Fangry, Spinister, Needlenose, Horri-Bull

Panel 2: No idea, don't recognise any of these. Possibly generics?

'Attack on the Transmitter'

Again, this is Ruckus, Spinister and Needlenose. The 'pinkish fire-breathing bug-lizard looking thing' is definitely Sparkstalker, although oddly he's drawn as walking on all-fours, rather than his usual T-rex style pose. It looks so weird seeing him on all fours, in fact, that at first I thought it was a miscoloured Bristleback.
