I see Prime Miko, Prime Jack, KP Shaoshao, KP Atari, MF Minerva, what might be G1 Spike...


And, are Kreon Megatron and Kre-O Megatron separate characters?

Kreons!
Comics!
Human allies as Kreons!
... in a language I can't read. But I can kinda guess the story.



Incidentally, why aren't there Kre-O sets for the Ark and Nemesis?

Thats just adorable. X3 I picked up words here n' there but yeah basically you can guess those parts due to the pictures. I'm not sure why there's Kreo megatron and a Kreon Megatron though.

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.

There is Hoist and Grapple kreons in the same comic as Ultra Magnus and the rest. I hope that's the wave 4 micro changers!

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.

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.

Also, the names each of those stories, in that order, are:
  • "Kreon Story"
  • "Defend the Blocks! Autobots, Dispatch!"
  • "Bumblebee! The Gentle-Hearted Autobot Warrior"
  • "A Reliable Warrior!? Vortex the Lookout from Hell"

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*

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. Image

(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:
Hydra wrote: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...

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. ;)

The identity of the blonde-haired kid has been revealed.

First and foremost, turns out this kid is a girl.

Secondly, Andrew Hall went and confirmed who she is:
Hydra wrote:It's one of the kids from Carnival who was featured in the Micron Densetsu Sourcebook.

Apparently the character design was a parody of anime character "Sazae-san."

WHAT STRENGTH! I AM DEFEATED...!

I didn't notice it before, but is Megatron on the ground throwing a temper tantrum like a little kid? :lol:

And I love how Wheeljack's creation evidently involved explosions. ...though one can imagine it wasn't entirely intentional.

Optimus on the toilet? OK.

See, this is how you do kid friendly and simple. But shockingly, it can still appeal to older fans.

But what do I know, I don't have all the business degrees under my belt that good 'ol hasbro execs do. Silly me.

This also makes me want to collect Kre-o. These comics are awesome :D

Straxus uses Bumblebee's helmet, Deszaras uses Sentinel Prime's, and Overlord uses... Rodimus's?

Also, Shrapnel/Sharpshot uses Mirage's.
