BTW, what's the deal with Sky-Byte? For me he is only a lousy repaint, why is he a fan-favourite?

Like the dinos coming back. Other information seems like things we already knew from future
Excited for ReGEneration.

I'm also taking a shot guessing that I'm the only one waiting to hoping to hear about the Inhumanoids returning ?

Thought I'd give you guys another exclusive.
I was told this was OK to post online since his image is floating around the web now anyway. This is Sky-Byte's official design for IDW as he's appearing in RID, staring in issue 5.
He's largely based on his original toy, though the transformation is a little different than originally.For example, his shark head now becomes his chest instead of a "faux"-shark face on his chest. And I added painted teeth on his shark face like you'd see on vintage fighter planes.
Basically, his alt-mode is some sort of space shark. Who is to say something that looks like a flying shark couldn't have evolved on some planet somewhere? Makes no less sense that dinosaurs in space, eh?

Since IDW showed these covers during their panel at Botcon last weekend, I think there's no problem to show it here!
Do you like Decepticons? Dinobots so here we go!
Interconnected covers pencils for issue #7 of Transformers: More Than Meets the Eyes and Transformers:Robots in Disguise. Those are the incentive covers for the Decepticon and Dinobot month ( July/2012)
Hope you like!

Seriously, don't you realise that's a Marvel comics character, you might as well ask them if they would make new comics featuring Spider-Man.

About damn time.
