Just to be clear, this is not happening, it's just conceptual.
“Oh, what an epic that would have been,” Jimenez wrote last night on Twitter, saying to one follower, “You missed out on Wonder Woman’s invisible jet becoming a very cool Transformer.” You can get a peek of that in the image above, along with an enormous Bat-former and, perhaps best of all, Optimus Prime as a Green Lantern. (He added this morning, “Giving credit where credit is due: the idea for Optimus Prime as a GL was none other than [IDW Publishing Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall's].”

Now who wants to see Trigon or Necron vs Unicron? And Raven teaming up with Thundercracker?
Or Teen Titans + Dinobots?
THE POSSIBILITIES ARE EEEENNNNDDDDLLLEEEESSSSSSSS!!!! *foaming at mouth spazzing*

And while Batmech looks like an original design, is Wonder Woman's jet turning into Invisible-Swoop? Or maybe he's Stealth from that Condor Verlag text story where he and Bumblebee fly to Egypt to see if the pyramids were built by Optimus Prime!
And the Seacons attacking Atlantis would be so awesome (shame they didn't exist in time for Alantis: Arise!); is Aquaman holding the head of someone recognizable, or just a generic?
And is that Primus's face in the second panel?
Yeah, this could've been WAY better than that Avengers crossover. I wonder if this deal went south around the time Animated was cancelled and relations soured between Hasbro and Cartoon Network/Time Warner.

I didnt collect the avengers one either. Or infestation. For that matter, I always saw spider-man/gears as pretty corny too.
I prefer my TFs to do their thing in their own universe.
A Joe crossover now and then is ok but I think that was a different continuity (serpent-OR, Bludgeon an Pythona etc).
Im picky with TF comics. Ill be skipping the FOC tpb if released unless someone can prove it goes with IDWs main continuity.

I have to say, I've loved Jiminez's work for a long time now, NEVER had him pegged as a TF fan! Also, I'd give an organ to see Batman and his Batwing-mech kick the snot out of Menasor!

Probably, but Ithink that it would be a morerealisric story if Megs and/or thecombiners weeenough to tax even the man of steel. I suspect megs would be smart enough to deel with Sups though

I know it isn't Prime in the Lantern Corps cool.....but I'd have still read every issue of this crossover if it were to become a reality.

Also, looking at the portion of that artwork with resident DC badass, Aquaman , fighting it out with the Piranhacon and SubMarauder. Makes me think of King Nir'Gil and the SubAtlanticans from Atlantis Arise, and how I'd love to see them again. Last we saw the Seacons was in the second INFESTATION crossover, they need make a return as well.

I thought it was a robotic looking Amazon warrior.
Now that you mention it, it does look like Swoop!
