Another Spotlight Announcement... & It's Who We Least Expected!!

Postby Repugnus » Fri Oct 19, 2007 12:41 am

Hey all, Simon Furman just updated his blog with another Spotlight announcement, and considering some of his past statements, it's a bit of a surprise! Check it out:

An intriguing choice...

I like the art for the cover.

Looks really cool.

I like the fact they appear to be downplaying the girly side of Arcee I was never really comfortable with the 'Princess Leia' only girl in the franchise thing they had going on with the character, it never really made any sense and became all she was about.

Front Paged and Credited.

This will be interesting to read, Bet this Arcee is nothing like her G1 counterpart, and that can only be a good thing.

Anyone else noticing a trend to have crazy post movie cast... Kup, Arcee, and even Springer to a point...

My vote for the HOF goes to my favorite Transformer, Kup, to the Headmasters (who still need new figures that aren't just the characters without their master components) and to seibertron.com for for being the ultimate TF resource.

Never would have guessed. Nice to see that, judging from the cover, it won't be the mother-hen Arcee but someone who seems to be a tad more unhinged we'll be reading about.

Art looks great and I am liking the idea of Arcee finally being more Warrior than Mother Hen or token Female. Have her stand shoulder to shoulder with the arse kickers!

Hmmm....fun. I wouldn't say it was unexpected, but it is a good thing, at least, I think it's a good thing.

Also, since she is involved with Jhiaxus, it might be that she was on the original ship crew. Or somehow she has found him as part of the lost crew.

Now I keep looking at that picture and wondering if my Fort Max statement was true. The head really reminds me of his (on the left), but the chest and shoulders do not, which is fine, because I would imagine this is a pre-headmasters style.

If that's true, then maybe that explains why there are feminine robots in Megatron: Origin and none in any of Furman's "present day" work to date. They probably existed once but have been wiped out (or died out) since the age of the Senate.

You know, I was just wondering about Arcee and other female Transformers in the IDW verse the other day and was even wondering if Arcee was going to get a spotlight. Now, I've always liked Arcee myself, so I'm quite happy to see her in the new universe and I'm very eager to see what is up with her.

And that looks like Nova Prime in the background of the cover, too. Definitely hoping we get some more information about the Ark and its crew...

Hm ... I personally like Wheelie. Everyone's animosity towards Wheelie and Daniel makes me think that I ought to draw up a few ideas for a Mosaic page or two. Hmm ...

Yeap, looks like them, at least as they appeared in the Prime Spotlight.

Wow, she really does look homicidal. I hope she at least damages Jhiaxus a good portion. I really didn't see her coming. At this rate, we'll have a nice collection of Spotlights w/characters we'd probably never see coming in 4 million years. Personally, I'd like to see Blitzwing.

It makes sense since they were created by Jhiaxus, if he's in something, they probably would be too. IS that what is doing that is pissing her off?

I like Counterpunch's ideas on the Valkyrie type thing. However, I don't want them to hate dudes...I would like that Springer/Arcee relationship to be able to be done, somehow, but yes, I know we are not even sure that they exist in the same time frame here.

Blitzwing is already in the -ation storylines so he won't be getting a Spotlight (unlike Prime who is the most prominent of all Transformers).

I'm cool with Arcee and fem-bots. Its no big deal.

I've only just noticed the blade-shapes on her arms and shoulders. They kind of remind me of Karai as The Shredder. She'd make a great toy.
