RID, MTMTE and Primacy for me. I wonder what this Elegant Chaos event is all about?

Rhinox belongs in a Beast Wars comic, not RiD. Obviously, part of Barber's job now is to squeeze in new Generations figures wherever he can. So why not put some 3rd party love into his book? How about the Planet X Dinos or this Fansproject Columpio that everyone is going crazy over right now? I want to see all the IDW books filled to bursting with ill fitting 3rd party characters! Shoehorn everybody for the win!

Interesting, I wonder what part Rhinox will play in all this.

@1984Forever Rattrap has already been playing a biggish role in RiD/Dark Cybertron/ Windblade. They may be using him for their own reasons.

For some new spotlight “episodes" I would like to hopefully see some beast era/ rid/ UT characters. Though given the shear number of characters in the multiverse it would be at least 2018-2020 before that would happen

The only reason Rattrap landed his ill fitting role in RiD is because he had a toy coming out. IDW has abused and misused great characters from their lowly beginnings, and now the tradition continues by ripping Rhinnox out of Beast Wars and shoehorning him into the past with Galvatron! I'm not even a Beast Wars fan and I'm yelling sacrilege! At this point, why not add the new movie characters to this continuity? Let's put Crosshairs by the throne with Rhinnox and Alpha Trion! Put him in alt-mode too. Yes, all the Transformers from many different KOntinuities lumped in with iconic true G1 characters looks as misplaced as a Chevy Stingray in Cybertron's distant past.

I don´t keep up with the comics, what are those things attacking Nemesis Prime and Galvatron? are they Predacons?
And also, just yesterday I was thinking of how weird it was that all the BW Generations toys have appeared in the comics except Rhinox, it was about time!

Those are headmasters from the first cybertronian civil war. Thinking of it I would like to see a mini-series based in that period.

Been wondering when Rhinox would be introduced into IDW.

So many points to counter...so little time.

First) how is it illfitting?

Second) abused and misused? That is your opinion. Not fact. I can counter by saying I love many of the new IDW personas.

Third) Sacrilege? Really? This is an alternative universe if you hadn't realized. One aspect of the great transformers multiverse. Your G1 isn't destroyed ny this, beast wars aren't destroyed by this. As a beast wars and G1 fan I'm okay with all of this and I bet I'm not alone.

So please, it's great you have an opinion on this but stop pretending that you speak for every one and that only your opinion matters. Remember, respect other peoples opinions and they may respect yours. :)

ZeroWolf, his username says his answer in 3 words: He's a G-Whiner, nothing except comics of the original g1 episodes will appease him lol >:oP

It's a damn shame you can't find at least SOME kind of enjoyment from any facet of this brand. The toys are no good FOR YOU, the comics are no good FOR YOU, the movies are no good FOR YOU...it's a wonder you even bother looking at the news here anymore.
