i can sadly see the transformers going against these what evers.

i haven't seen the danger girl series or 30DoN either.

gi joe i can sorta see this happen. sorta.

and i know how messed up the tmnt name is so this is straight up there ally.

in the end i don't care about I2. and i am dessapointed that RID isn't actually about TF:RID(i am happy about the comic probably being about WFC and FOC but the whole "Robots In Disguise" thing made me feel it should be about tf:RID") and "more than meets the eye" dosn't look anything special. the wreckers i might get if cheap enough.

I think they're just using the body designs from WFC. This takes place in the IDW G1 universe, which has nothing to do with WFC.

If by "this" you mean the TF portion of Infestation II, then you're incorrect. The TF portion of Infestation II takes place in the "Hearts of Steel" continuity.

By "this", I was talking about the Robots in Disguise comic, whose cover shows the G1 'Bots in the bodies of the WFC counterparts (hence the mention of WFC).

They said it was supposed to start in January. Then again, IDW also said their new Danger Girl Mini would start in December. It's most likely going to come in February.
