Is that... is that Whirl, Ultra Magnus, Rodimus, Omega Supreme, and Jetfire? And a huge Scorponok base? Oh I seriously hope that's a proper hint of what's to come.

So appearently Japanese comics read backwards to American? Let me see if I have this rhgt, Archiville is dring a car, tries to run ove a puppy, and Bumblebee turns Arkeville's car into, well, Bumblebee because we don't have enough Bumblebee repaints without Bumblebee being able to spread himself like a plague, and then when Arkeville tries to get angry he gets stared at by his carand Prime gets kinda freaked out at having another Bumblebee? And what the heck is happeneing in the second page, it kinda looks like Vortex/Spinister/whoever he is is trying to usurp Megatron with a giant version of himself, so Megs calls the Autobots?

The Japanese read right-to-left, yes.

Though, some TF manga in recent years has been produced in a Western left-to-right format, but taking a further look at these particular ones looks like they read in the traditional Japanese right-to-left way.

Translated! (not by me)

I'M THE LOOKOUT FROM HELL-EX!

Got these from Nyarlathotep from over at the Allspark, who in turn got them from 4chan, so I'm not sure who to thank for them-ex. Too bad they didn't add a "translated by ____"-ex.

Vortex-ex's speech quirk is oddly catchy-ex.

THRUSTINATOR!!! :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK:

I feel the spiky blonde-haired boy seems familiar, but I can't think of who he is.

Ok, so basically, Wheeljack invents a potion which can power Kreons up, but renders its torso see-through, giving new meaning to "sheer power"

*ba dam tshhhhhhhhhhhhhh*

Seriously, Megatron puts on a sheer negligee made by Knockout (I think) in the hopes of achieving the same effect. He only gets laughed at, so Megatron knocks out Knockout.

*ba dam tshhhhhhhhhhhhhh*

Maybe, but isn't there already a Kicker Kreon?

This kid looks younger to me, anyway.

Seeing how the manga Rodimus and Kup look very different from the ones we're getting, I'm afraid these cameos are no indication of upcoming toys.

(Could they even sell Thrustinator at retail? He seems to be TFCC's creation, like Shattered Glass, so I wouldn't expect that Hasbro/Takara could)




But that "sheer" pun! :lol:

Full character list:

Sari Sumdac
Blonde-haired boy*
Wheeljack
Optimus Prime
Minerva
Megatron
Thrustinator
Doubleface
Knock Out
Breakdown
Some red Autobot dude
Grimlock
Dinobot
Devcon
Vortex

* - Regarding the blonde-haired kid's identity, Andrew Hall went and asked the artist of this piece, Hayato Sakamoto, who it's supposed to be:
[url=http: wrote:Hydra[/url]"]I just called him up and asked him who it is.

This is a good one. Anybody figured it out?
It's a character from Armada, and holding a fish.
An obscure Armada human, eh?

Incidentally, Sakamoto is also the artist who drew Thrustinator in that TCC comic we first saw him in, thus explaining Kreon Thrustinator's sudden appearance here so soon after his Deluxe toy's reveal. ;)

......... Doubleface?
*checks wiki, which brings up Sideways*
Oooooh. Wait, where's he in the comic? Don't tell me you identified him purely by that purple foot.


Incidentally, I wonder how they'd handle Sideways/Doubleface's distinct heads in Kreon form. Would probably just use that Galvatron helmet...

Not me, but someone else elsewhere pointed this out:

If we ever see his face, it'll probably look like his standard Mini-Con-less head.

Not sure which helmet would work best for it, though, or if a helmetless look would work best. ;)
