Cannon to the right of them,
Cannon to the left of them,
Cannon in front of them
Volleyed and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with shot and shell,
Boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of Hell,

You know the drill by now Richter...

So is the last bot going to be another Protectobot??? We know that there is no combining technology (other than Monstructor) yet, so these will be focusing on the individual characters rather than the gestalts...
Awesomesauce; Use it, you know you want to.

Yeah, you're too effecient, Tunks :)

There's definitely a lot of focus put into the individual, and perhaps some on the group as a whole ;)

Now *that* is ominous. And I *like* Silverbolt! *worries*

Interesting choice of quote, BTW. Not the stanza of that poem that usually gets quoted.

Still looks cool, although I was hoping that this one wouldn't be an Aerialbot.

I see Air Raid (black F-14) has his back to us.

It's also quite appropriate... I had Charge of the Light Brigade in mind when I was outlining this.

Hmmm, okay, I am no expert at G1, but I thought the added bot is Silverbolt, I mean, didn't he have those golden things on his wrists?

I may be wrong :-?

As the man said, The Charge of the Light Brigade. ;)

The most well-known bit of that poem is probably, "Theirs not to make reply / theirs not to reason why / theirs but to do and die".

[qoute]Cannon to the right of them,

Volleyed and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with shot and shell,
Boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of Hell,[qoute]

Too bad they don't have another G1 Combiner Limb, or else they could actually use the "Scarmble City" combining method.

If it is another Protectobot, I'm guessing Streetwise.

Evoking the Iwo Jima imagery was very deliberate so well done for clocking it. As for the excerpt it's from Charge of the Light Brigade by Alfred Lord Tennyson. Also a very deliberate choice...

This is the cover to a project called "War Journal."

We've been revealing a character every few days.
