Very cool to see Skybyte being resurrected from RID and brought back as a relevant character. He had so much potential as a character. Now, I want a Generation figure.

If they can pull that off as a toy there would be no question....BOUGHT!!! He looks so maliciously evil!
Looking to acquire a complete set of the G1 Insecticons (Bombshell, Kickback, and Shrapnel). They dont have to be MISB, have the cards. The TRU re-issues are fine too. The only person that can verify my buying status is CounterPunch as he is the only person I have purchased from.

It was revealed during IDW's BotCon panel that July would be Dinobot and Decepticon month. Now artist Macelo Matere has revealed the line art for the interconnected retail exclusive covers for July's Transformers: MTME #7 and Transformer: RID #7. They noted that just because Megatron is featured in the cover art is not an indication that he is back. Check out the art below.

Since IDW showed these covers during their panel at Botcon last weekend, I think there's no problem to show it here!

Do you like Decepticons? Dinobots so here we go!

Interconnected covers pencils for issue #7 of Transformers: More Than Meets the Eyes and Transformers:Robots in Disguise. Those are the incentive covers for the Decepticon and Dinobot month ( July/2012)

Hope you like!

Wow, I think it's really cool they're including Sky Byte. I wonder what characters from other universes they'll include in the comics.

OK, who was the brainiac that asked idw if they would bring back Death's Head in new comics?
Seriously, don't you realise that's a Marvel comics character, you might as well ask them if they would make new comics featuring Spider-Man.

Good. I was just to post if anyone had any idea of what's become of Orion Pax since "Death of Optimus Prime".
