Very cool! I've been itching to hear more about Bluestreak for some time now. So many teases about him and his mental health. He sounds like he will be a great addition to the rest of the crew. Only bad part is April is so far away :-(

Oh man! Bluestreek? That might mean we'll hear more about Veras Centralus, circa Stormbringer.

My question is: when will we learn more about Springer?

Have you picked up the most recent hardcover TPB of "Last Stand of the Wreckers"? That contained a bunch of bonus stories featuring Springer. One even about the post-LSOTW comatose Springer being cared for by Roadbuster.

Yes, I read that one. And at the end he starts showing signs of life again. But I want more! Imagine when he meets Whirl after finding out he almost deactivated Springer!

I'd be willing to bet they announce that IDW Megatron as a voyager toyabout a month after Cloud Megatron releases.

Why a Voyager? There's already a Leader in the works.

I'm hoping with the announcement of Bluestreak that we will be getting a new Prowl figure. Would make sense in my book considering Prowl is a main character. I can dream can't I?

A reissue of the Universe 2.0 figure is more likely, methinks.

I can see Hasbro announcing an Asia Exclusive 3-pack of the Classics "Datsun" brothers.

No new Classics-style/Generations Prowl toy was included the giant list of reveals.

Continuing in the build-up of teases for the new run of IDW Publishing's More Than Meets the Eye, with issue #28 hitting stores in April, regular series artist Alex Milne has tweeted his concept image for the new Autobot Megatron! Check out the mirrored image below.

Really cool, I like this more than the recent body he had in RID, although this is basically that just in the MTMTE art style.
Just this one emulates a gun alt-mode and looks less like a tank. Check out the things on his shoulders that kinda look like the hammer of a gun.
Really cool, it's going to be really interesting to see how him being on the lost light is going to play out.

I love all of Milne's designs/redesigns so this gets 3 thumbs up from me! :grin:

Oh god, I totally missed that! I was so into the design and its symmetry that I managed to miss the missing fusion cannon.
I wonder if he just doesn't have one now, or if it's simply not in this design. I guess he won't have it on the ship as a sort of safety rule.

Oh wait, I remember now this one issue in which Tarn quotes one of Megatron's writings, in it Megatron states that he will carry his weapon until peace has finally come, and the image shows him holding the fusion cannon in two hands like an offering.
So maybe he discards it before he joins the Lost Light?

Me too. Is this upcoming voyager Megatron a new mold or a retool/redeco?

Not a Voyager, a new Leader Class mold, and apparently it's based on the idw design from RID, this one

I like it. I like it a lot.

I think I might prefer Andrew Griffith's design translated into a toy, though. Just a more "classic" look, I guess. I look forward to season two, though. And I can't wait to see the final design in the comics!

The missed part was that a Leader Megs is in the works. Not a voyager.

This design needs a Generations "VOYAGER" class figure made ASAP!

With a Tarn repaint to follow...

I'm really wishing for a Voyager of that RID tank Megs. Leader is just too big.Just like deluxe was too small. I was just looking at Classics Jetfire on my shelf and he already towers over most other figures. Imagining a new one that's twice as big is just too much. I think I'm going to pass on him completely. Ultra Magnus would make more sense as a leader to me.

Yep. That's old news. Saw it way back here first - http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/news/idw-transformers-dawn-of-the-autobots-teasers-megatron/29149/

It has to do with the post-Dark Cybertron event called "Dawn of the Autobots".
