I still say Braver because of the wheels:

Mainframe lacks wheels altogether:

Neither Mainframe nor Braver have a red helmeted head.

Turns out it's GoBots Buggyman based on G1 Beachcomber's unreleased red redeco, which will appear in the upcoming TCC prose story "Spatiotemporal Challengers" by Andrew Hall and Hayato Sakamoto (the latter of whom is the man behind these Kre-O comics).

The blue Seaspray is Man-O-War and the white Hubcap is Rest-Q.

Sabrblade and I did, and it's actually the second-last panel, as Japanese comics are read right-to-left, top-to-bottom. :-B

If they actually make a Kreon team of the Breastforce that actually combines into Liokaiser, consider that to be the only Kreons I will actually buy (if they're released in the US, which probably won't happen).

Though it seems to be hidden.

http://www.takaratomy-marketing.co.jp/products_kreo/comic-img/2013_009.jpg

So lets see:

Snowcat
Bludgeon
Scavenger (?)
Dirge
Gigastorm
Rampage
Bluestreak
Jazz
Sideswipe
Thunderblast
Redwing (you can thank me for this one - see below)
Tarn
Death Cobra
Sideways
Sideswipe
Zarak
Frenzy (heh, he has legs for arms)
Octane
Blackarachnia
Toxitron
Some yellow/gold, purple, and black character (?)

It was mentioned on the Allspark when the last couple of comics went online that the artist who illustrates these reads the boards and was going to take suggestions as to who to put into the background of the comic.

One of my suggestions was Redwing, looks like he made it in. Some other suggestions probably made it in too.

But I'd like to see the Seekers show up including guys like Bitstream, Hotlink, Acidwing/storm, Redwing, etc.

If Tarn comes out, I really would want to get one, just for the heck of it.

And Thrustinator's been in all of these since #4.

Energon Snow Cat!

Who's the green helicopter and the red jet?

Is that Toxitron and Octane in the first panel? And who's are the legs flying behind blackarachnia?

Godammit all of these better get made.

The green copter is Deathcobra, the 7th, fiction-only, member of the Liokaiser team. Hellbat had him killed, fearing his position to be obsolete as the team only needed 6 to fully combine. The red jet is Red Wing, the fourth Rainmaker in the BotCon 2013 comic.

And those are indeed Octane and Toxitron, in the second-last panel. Remember, manga is traditionally read right-to-left, top-to-bottom. Twisting my head around the flying legs tho.

I thought the yellow and purple one that we can only see the legs on was Swindle, but the printing does not match the actual Kreon of him.

Other girl is Misha

Pink dragon is BWII Galvatron

Countdown could also be Moonradar

Gold guy w/ goggles is Fulcrum

Red guy is Kaon of the DJD

Robot mode Constructicon w/ the clawed hands could be Buildmaster

Someone who might or might not be Silverbolt is next to Optimus and Vector Prime at the bottom of Panel 3

Armada Tidal Wave in cartoon colors is with Dinoking and Lockdown

And Saber is airing out the bedsheets he wet, as a reference to the Victory ending theme saying that Star Saber did NOT wet the bed as a child. :lol:

I missed that. But honestly Im surprised. Usually dumbed down TF toys are geared towards the "western market". Takara usually makes nothing but the good stuff. I wonder if they'll end up with constructobots as well ?

Actually, TakaraTomy releases just about anything Hasbro has after some tweaking. So yes, we can expect Construct-Bots over there and the "dumbed down" TF toys for the new movie. They have kids there too, you know?

Even robot heroes and rescue bots. I always assumed their kids stuff was kaybaya figures and arms microns in coin operated candy machines. In other words, stuff that adults like too. Just my guess from what i see on these front page stories...
