Thanks to the IDW Publishing Twitter account, we have a teaser image of what will potentially be the aftermath of the Dark Cybertron event. We see a Casey W. Coller Orion Pax (or Optimus Prime?) standing under the banner 'After the Dark' with a moon shining in the back and a new dawn rising over an Earth-like planet - could this be the Dawn of the Autobots monicker we've seen before? Discuss in the Energon Pub, and check out the latest preview of Dark Cybertron #6!

This image can only mean one thing, after Dark Cybertron Optimus Prime/ Orion Pax reveals that he's been Unicron all along! And after growing to his normal planet munching size he makes an attempt to eat Earth!

Or he changes his name back to Prime and takes command of the Autobots once more, that would kinda work too.

The Unicron theory is more likely, I agree.

Whether it's Unicron or Primus, it's gonna be big! (Mind the pun! ;) )

Hasbro really needs to make a voyager of that IDW Prime.

I certainly wish they would. At the very least, re-release the Classics voyager mold. It is still a viable figure.

Personally, I'm not such a fan of this robot mode... It's not bad, just not particularly great either. Something about the front windows just doesn't feel right and those shoulder pads are a little too "1990's female news anchor" for my tastes...

I hate you.

But seriously, he's okay. With Barber editing, I'm sure we won't have the continuity mess we had with AHM. just hopefully he doesn't royally screw things up.

Yea it all makes sense, I mean just look at the way he's looking at that planet. You can practically see him salivating at the thought of tucking into that.

Windblade looks like she's going to send someone to the scrapyard. :D

I can see it now. Arcee is going to become...how shall I say...infatuated, with the first ever Cybertronian like herself that she's ever met. The femslash writes itself.

Looks interesting, hopefully the writing is good, because I am not 100% sold on the Geisha inspired design.

I'm interested in seeing how the relationship between her and Arcee pans out.

Looks loads better than the initial concept we were shown back at SDCC 2013. If we don't get a Slipstream redeco/retool, I will be extremely disappointed.

Eh, tossing Flamewar into that mess might just make things worse.

Right on about Slipstream. Considering what we learned about 2 of Windy's casemates yesterday, it'd seem like a waste not to retool her into someone else, and red and blue make purple anyway.
