:-x We have GOT to stop meeting this way... :P
hahaha

But on to the topic. That floating head is clearly Starscream. Clearly from my POV anyways.

It doesn't make much sense to me for it to be Starscream. I mean, from what I've gathered from the comics, Shockwave and Soundwave seem to be the ones pullig the strings behind the machination. For all we know, Megs and the other 'cons might not know anything about the machination.

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

It could also be Scorponok, seeing how his head got damaged in the Ultra Magnus spotlight.

So Optimus's gun goes SPUT. SPUT? That's the sound I usually reserved for a Mega Man villain.

Also, I doubt it's Shockwave, as last we checked he was just being uncovered in a fossil bed. My bet is Starscream, since he's supposed to be blown to itty bitty bits anyway.

I'm thinking it's either Shockwave or Starscream, and I'm leaning toward Shockwave 'cause the other Decepticons took Screamer into the command bunker after Megatron slagged him in Infiltration #6.


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

Megatron is awesome, no other bot would just rip their main weapon off their forearm and not show some pain or pause for thought.

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.

It doesn't make sense for it to be Starscream, Starscream is probably put in storage in the Decepticon stronghold.


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.
