We have GOT to stop meeting this way...
But on to the topic. That floating head is clearly Starscream. Clearly from my POV anyways.

Personally, I think it's Shockwave. But also it could be a TF we haven't been introduced to yet in the comics.

Still, best way to find out is to get the comic. Can't wait for this one!

As for the con suspended from the roof, it looks like a machine that suffered some damage, both Starscream and Shockwave fit this bill, but I dont think that it is either of them. Shockwave is one who would prefer to work alone, with other Cons if he has to, but certainly no squishies, and Starscream it shouldnt be as he should still be in the Decepticon Command Bunker (the impatience of the character could mean it is Starscream) recovering from the beating Megatron gave him from Infiltration #6.

Son of a bitch.

The head hanging from the ceiling is in a Machination building. It's probably been since before Starscream even arrived on Earth.
I'm starting to lean more and more towards Scorponok.

It did? I remember Zarak getting beaten, but I didn't think Zarak was Scorponok's head at that point. I'll revisit the issue when I can be bothered to go to the library.
I can't see that head being Shockwave. The dialogue doesn't feel like Shockwave (though I'll admit we haven't actually seen him talk yet, only his thought caps). I'm loathed to think it's Starscream...how would his dismembered head get from the Command Bunker in Oregon to Tampa, Florida?
Soundwave is a possibility, although he must have taken a severe beating.
It could be anyone. It could be Grimlock.

It's definately a con, he was first seen speaking with a purple speech bubble (which is exclusive to con characters).

I still think it's Screamer. The scheming tone of voice, dealing with a human that is just as concerned for his own well being as Starscream is and who knows, maybe the human is a facsimile like the guy who was weilding Megatron. That would explain how the head got from point A to point B. Plus Ore-13 might be whats keeping his noodle up and running. But hey, that's all speculation up until it's read.

He had his eyebrow shot off... I don't see the point. It's not like his head was knocked off.
