I am seriously loving the cover for Ongoing #15, while I am more for the traditional look of Megatron I do think this new look shall be interesting for the series. And DAMN thats a big gun he has.

Is that Shockwave, or a Minotaur?

TF 3 cover:
Ironhide: "Hey Prime, what are we doing in a soviet sci-fi movie?"

TF15:
I love the new look of Megatron, but I fear the skeleton faces may reappear

I hope its Shockwave, it would be nice to see him come to the big screen as it would create more conflict for Megatron.

I'm not into TF comics (one of the reasons is that they dont sell them in qatar >.>) but i would gladly get TF ongoing #15 JUST for that cover! that has to be my favorite megatron design now! don kicks ass but what sucks ass is that almost none of his designs get toys!
(i know about the titanium line but i meant GOOD toys)

Well, since that is Movieverse Shockwave...
