Transformers: Ongoing #14 Covers - Infestation Hype!

Postby Anonymous. » Thu Oct 21, 2010 11:56 am

The month of December marks the beginning of the hype for IDW's Infestation, and also the release of Transformers: Ongoing #14. The issue will be released a month before the start of the Infestation crossover, which will be in January. Thanks to Chris Ryall, we've got a look at the issue's three covers. Cover A we've seen previously - oddly placed shots fired at an Optimus Prime target board. Cover B features Soundwave with his minions Rumble and Frenzy. Cover C is concept art for a revived Megatron. Check out the covers below!

That's not Rumble, that's Bruce Campbell in disguise. :lol: I love that Megs artwork, wish the WFC toy was a bit closer to that.

Also they swapped Rumble and Frenzy, even though it is established several times in IDW that Rumble is the red and black one and Frenzy is the blue and purple one.

Don and his BSC art seems to be making a return. Sad, really, since I was just getting used to buying Ongoing. The story just isn't good enough on it's own to not be carried by good art...and Don just ain't gonna cut it with his style. Just too bad.


As for Infestation, not interested. Four of the largest franchises in sci-fi with zombies added in for extra nerdgasms just doesn't in the slightest interest me.

And I dig the "new" Megs' look, even if it'll last about as long as the pre-AHM TFs' looks did.

I want to see more of that Megatron!!! It has Dons sign AND it has normal face, so... the King Returns with the classic looks?

Wow. I love Soundwave... but hate Rumble! So odd looking.

And while Megatron looks nice (reminiscent Super Megatron from Japan)... I'm tired of every artist having to try their hand at redesigning the characters and transformations. It's so jarring... and odd to own the toy(s) and get a new comic with a different look almost every issue (not to mention flipped personalities... ie. Spike hates Autobots, etc.)

Please stick to the cartoon or toy look and transformation. :BANG_HEAD:

Weapon: Black Magic
I'm all down for changing up TF designs, as long as its an improvement, while still maintaining the character's vibe... that megatron looks so gundam or some other piece of crap with huge legs and tiny head.. pretty uninteresting. Lucky for me I don't care for ongoing.
I remember someone commenting about how WFC soundwave doesn't get to change up and look awesome in new ways coz they always got to implement the yellow chest border. Well, if you change up the chest, you can keep the head and shoulder cannon, still would feel like soundwave (as long as the chest wasn't garbage instead). The Movie soundwave is an example of totaly killing the soundwave look. Zombies seem pretty pointless to add to Transformers, its too much of a threat to biological and not machine, which means... who cares... sure somthing like human zombies wouldn't be a threat to Transformers (but i'm sure they'll find some hairbrain way of twisting it all around to try and make it fit).

Megatron is supposed to get a redesign and that is one of the concepts.

Here is the cover for #15 from IDW's forum.

Megatron looks awesome! And as far as the zombies go, I don't think it will be human living dead, but more like Galvatron, Cyclonus, and Scourge. Aren't they technically all dead but given strength from the "darkness"?

Applying any human terminology to robots seems pretty daft in regards to a 'serious' story line. Either their sparks are online or off, and in Galvatron and the others, its something different (more like a corrupt spark or some jibberjabber), hardly "zombies". Sorry if i'm dulling anyones enthusiasm for it to be good... just being honest.

Honestly though, the zombies in the OLD school G1 comic (might have been the UK comic?) were awesome. If they run with that vibe, I'm in on buying it.

I like it newer take with a little bit of the classic look thrown in, but I still Megatron in War For Cybertron pulled that off best.
