There should be a few surprising choices in here, which re-enforces that we're trying to do something very new with this series. How each of these characters fit in, well, that's part of the fun...

Stay tuned for more updates in 2011, as we get closer to release.

Scourge's facial hair reminds me of Jamie Hyneman from Mythbusters. Which is awesome. This series has very nice characcter designs, and here's hoping for a Soundwave.

These sort of remind me of Marvel's super hero squad characters, but thankfully not as cartoony. Although Trypticon looks like a Zoid.

Well, the good news is this is a fan-produced comic, so it'll be completely free :D

I'll very enthusiastically second that that remark. I'm also loving Cyclonus' "Dirty Harry" snarl look and I'd give just about anything to mod an Action Master Prowl into that "Sheriff" design. Good job on all of these characters. I'm looking forward to seeing how this fan-fic develops. Looks very cool and also like it will be a lot of fun to follow. If these characters had been first run designs for TFA I probably would have warmed up to the series a lot quicker than what I did.

A free fan comic eh? I may have to look into this... Anyway, I like these designs, especially Omega Supreme.
By the way, this is really off topic, but has anyone else ever noticed that "Omega Supreme" sounds like something you'd see in a taco bell commercial?

Is it just me or does Omega Supreme look like Omega Spreem? Yes, if Taco Bell sold something called the Omega Supreme I'd buy two.
