So, is Trailcutter the official replacement for the name Trailbreaker?

Oh, the end of the FIRST story arc. Right. I thought they were ending both series now.

Grimlock vs. Scorponok? Yes please. =P~

Once again, ReGen is the only 1 interesting to me...

And yes, Grimlock vs. Scorponok is a fight I've been waiting to see forever. I just hope it's more exciting than the Prime/Megatron "fight."

Is this the cover for IDW Collection Vol 8?

They're really hyping up the various Ongoing stories for April. :-? I sure hope they can deliver or I may never take them seriously again.

Uber annoyed at the inclusion of the RiD annual in volume 3. I bought the annuals as I didn't think they'd make it into the trades. To buy the trades now would be a waste of money. Guess I'll have to track down issues 10 and 11. :-x

I don't think this is the final cover art. On amazon it has a disclaimer across the picture saying "not final art", my guess is they'll continue with the same style of covers that they've had from 1-7.
I'd like to see another Autobot. Any thoughts on who it might be? I'm putting my money on Rodimus.

i think that is a good guess. They seem to be alternating between Autobots and Decepticons. If they continue that pattern then Rodimus, Jazz, or Ultra Magnus might be top picks.
