Transformers Prime: Rage of the Dinobots #3 Clean Cover Artwork

Postby El Duque » Mon Oct 29, 2012 3:51 pm

Motto: "I ain't got time to bleed!"
Weapon: Gattling Gun
Artist Ken Christiansen has updated his blog, Bad Flip Productions, with the cover for IDW's Transformers Prime: Rage of the Dinobots #3. The limited series launches next month. Click here to visit Ken's blog to check out the pencil and ink versions.

Transformers Prime Shockwave, and.....

Hmm. I don't think they've announced the actual name of this very shiny character yet.

Overall, it's your basic two guys standing there pose. I liked the chance to get some lens flare in there, along with more molten slag, and the barrel rim of Shockwave's gun arm still red hot and smoking. Atmosphere, sparks, and distant burned out buildings tie it all together.

Well...Ratbat was a Mini-Con representative on the High Council. Not sure it would be him. Even if he did surrender to the Decepticons, I'd expect him to be smaller in Prime rather than a little under Shockwave's height.

Then again...we did get this size change:

Scorponok isn't in the Aligned Continuity yet. The Hall of Fame bio was referring to G1 Grimlock, not Aligned Grimlock.

Hasbro said that the Hall of Fame bios were based around the new continuity, Grimlock's said he and the Lightning Strike Coalition were reformatted by Shockwave, which has only happened in the Aligned continuity

Thank you. That's not what we're talking about.

The Hall of Fame are not strictly Aligned content. The Hall of Fame characters are cross-continuity character concepts. They don't have a specific place in a continuity, they are strictly generic. The bios are mentioning specific elements from the current "Aligned" continuity in others.

Scorponok still doesn't exist in the Aligned-verse [yet].

Shockwave done gone and upgraded himself. 8)

And, who might you be, mysterious new guy? ;)

This.

The majority of the Hall of Fame bios were written with the Aligned characters in mind, while being visually represented with an image of the G1 versions:

Optimus Prime - Aligned
Megatron - Aligned
Starscream - Aligned
Bumblebee - Aligned
Dinobot - Beast Wars
Jazz (2010) - Aligned
Soundwave (2010) - Aligned
Shockwave (2010) - Aligned
Grimlock (2010) - Aligned
Ironhide - Aligned
Soundwave (2011) - Aligned
Ratchet - Aligned
Waspinator - Beast Era
Cliffjumper (non-inductee/non-nominee) - Aligned
Shockwave (2011) - Aligned
Jazz (2011) - Aligned
Grimlock (2011) - Aligned
Autobot Erector - G1 (maybe Aligned if anything ever comes out of this)
Grimlock (2012) - Aligned
Jazz (2012) - Aligned
Shockwave (2012) - Aligned
Wheeljack - Aligned (but with a G1 line about having made "even the occasional Dinobot" thrown in)
Arcee - A MESS!!! It seemed like they tried for Aligned Arcee, but FAILED miserably, making her bio a load of nonsense
Megatron (Beast Wars) - Beast Era
Rodimus - Aligned-ish (it mostly fits, but there's still some wonkiness when you consider that it's Aligned Hot Shot who becomes Aligned Rodimus, and the mentioning of him as "Rodimus Prime" sound even weirder)
Sky-Byte - Robots in Disguise

This guy has a tail, claw, or gun emerging from his back and wings. Lazerback has none of these traits. Also, this guy's head is lower into the collar, complete with a different torso and shoulder kibble.

Looking at it more, I'm seeing more draconic elements than insectoid elements, and since this is meant to be a prequel to season 3, it's likely this guy is a Predacon (who are all dragon-based) than anything else.
