Seen the pics for Galvatrons Spotlight, but the Megatron ones are sure nice.

It seems that Megatron may have had a "crew" of fellow mining bots at one point, they all have the same "warning" strip on them.

I love how Megatron's classic "bucket helmet" is the regulation safety helmet for all the workers. I wonder if he kept it to remind all the Decepticons of their roots or what. That would be a cool bit of information to know. And I wonder who the big 'bot with the sheild is. Looks like a cross between Fortress Maximus and Victory Leo. The grey 'bot looks a lot like Blurr, too, at least in the head, anyway.

--on a note of its own--

The Golden Age, as seen from The Pit Below.

Who is the older bot with the stache? Star Saber's Granpa? This is a must buy for me.

It's funny, until a few years ago, I never really viewed Megatron to even have a helmet (and still don't). I have to say that it is a nice touch though! I'm really looking forward to this one! ;)^

I am liking this. Very much. I have to pick this one up when it comes out. I keep thinking that the dudu w/the humongo shield looks almost exactly like Dai Atlas. And isn't the Autobot at the podium Sentinal Prime? Interesting.....................

I'm calling it: the Vector Sigma look-a-like will be Sentinel Prime. As there are two different guys with shields up by the podium, I'm assuming that they're guards and have just given the miners some pretty bad news.

"Thanks for mining all this energon... but we're cutting your rations by 50 percent. Have a nice day." :-)

I thought the old 'bot at the podium was supposed to be Alpha Trion (or Alpha Prime, or whatever you wanna go by).

How many of the miner 'bots would you wager to be Constructicons?

One of the chaps in the last panel (second in from the left) has a silver chest decoration that reminds me of IDW's Cybertronian Hot Rod chest design.

I can't wait to find out the answers to your questions!

The artwork looks really good. The picture of Megatron with mining tool is really nice. 8)
