I'm also eager to see Sludge after all the mentioning they did of him. I mean "Slug" didn't get mentioned but in passing of his alt mode, and that's it, right? But poor Sludge we get teased about left and right
Slug and Sludge being similar (SLU
e) are my only qualms, otherwise. Love the designs overall!
I AM going to miss "Slag" though. I dunno. Any other name really just doesn't do it for me. In memory of Slag! *salute*
And I'm sure we all noticed the Wheeljack concept prominently placed in one of the interviews? I'm forgetting which of these we've already seen and which are new or were unnoticed before....
And yes, hopefully these interviews put to rest the main "in G1 continuity" arguments. They clearly reference G1, but are only taking what they need for their new continuity, or just homages in places.
Maybe one day they'll hold a contest where we can get a tour of HM Studios! I wouldn't mind hanging out with them for a day in their offices!
Transformers and video games, all in one. >:-)
