The TFormers pic is broken since that site forbids hotlinking.

Also, here's a new preview - http://www.newsarama.com/20829-idw-debut-previews-star-mage-1-windblade-1-extended-look.html

Marvel has been doing the one page teasers spread out over various websites for a few years. Gotta keep all the different factions of fans happy.

Ya' know her chest looks a hell of a lot like PRID Arcee's :-?

Maybe she'll be a straight up remold. :-(






Okay, yeah, I noticed her chest first. The molding, nothing else. :KREMZEEK:

It's funny how unfamiliar with Starscream she is, because I'm sitting here with my face in my palm wanting to strangle her stupid as hell. But it's not her fault, she just doesn't know any better. So far I'm not really liking this character though.

It's Rattrap! He's sabotaged power supplies before, y'know!

That said, I like the core idea here so far... but remain ambivalent about Windblade herself. Maybe if she expresses a personality trait aside from naivete...

She hasn't been on Cybertron in who knows how long. How would she know about a guy she's never met or known about until recently?

I'm sure that eventually she will but it's going to take time and it'll take patience on the part of the readers. She hasn't been subjected to the millions of years of constant war that most of the populace has so she is very much a stranger in a strange land.
What should prove interesting will be seeing just what happens in the course of a short mini-series to bring her other personality traits more to the surface. A seemingly meek, subservient character with finely honed martial skills... that could prove to be a dangerous combination if she is placed in a position where she is pushed too far. Some with that combination display great confidence and rise to a leadership role quickly while others just as easily snap and turn into an irrational, unstoppable force of nature. Will she be another Hot Rod/Rodimus (or 'Bee)or will she turn out like Arcee when placed under pressure? She may go the route of Thundercracker, pulling a Cartman and saying "Screw You guys, I'm going home!" We just don't know and that's the fun of it.

When I first read this, I thought they were talking about FLIRTATION systems. I was like, "oh Starscream, you smug snake, making Wingblade feel all uncomfortable around you.

Would you put it past Starscream to do that just to make someone uncomfortable? :lol:

Sounds like that's the conclusion he came to already on his own. It still can be frustrating to watch someone do something even if it is out of naivety.

Kinda wish I had the capacity to go and get me a copy right away. I'd love to write a lengthy and whiny review about everything that's wrong with this.

Well if this... 'thing' is here to stay they'd better bring Drift back.
