HOLY SHIT!!!
CYCLONUS CAN NOW FLY, TRANSFORM, MAKE A FIST, ALL IN COLOR!!!!
This is revolutionary!!!
as for Hardhead, It looks kinda kool since it reminds me of the "Bird Of Prey" issue from the US comic.

Stuff like this makes me hope and pray for a Universe Hardhead.

I know Universe Nightbeat won't happen because of the TFCC Nightbeat.

Cyclonus on the other hand has a welcome home with me.

moviing on looks great but i dont know if its the position he was on this page but cyclonus looks a little fat around the wraist and legs area.

:lol: He's added staring at his own hand in hell to the list.

Just joking, Cyclonus can do anything he wants! =P~

Roche's artwork is awesomesauce, I love the extra style he has added to Hardhead.

Cyclonus looks more washed out (colourwise) than I was expecting, but it is in no way a bad thing.

Also looks like the citizens of Gorlam Prime have had quite the number of "upgrades" and seem to not care about the two Autobots being in plain view in robot mode... very interesting.

I don't think Nightbeat and Hardhead *are* on Gorlam Prime in that image. The fact that the green alien lady reminds me of one of the passerby on page 6 of Nightbeat's Spotlight, and the device in Nightbeat's hand in this pic, both suggest to me that they're looking at some kind of holographic replay from the data Nightbeat sent up to his ship before he got captured.

hmmm... planet full of half robot people, Spotlight featuring two as of yet, un-modified headmasters...

I'm thinking Heardhead and Nightbeat may be getting a few extra voices in their heads.

Very plausible theory.
I just hope that this is the only page that's a hologram, so more time can be spent on Gorlam itself. :D

Have a look at the top left hand corner of the 2nd Nightbeat preview page.

Does anyone else see a motorcycle with a clearly defined human leg on the side, but then no upper body of a human? Unless the human body is really all black, square and has no head it looks like their maybe early transformers on Gorlam...

You know, now that I know what to look for, I think you're right. Very interesting...

Wow... I can't wait for the Spotlights to come out. Ten to one Hardhead and Nightbeat will battle Galvatron on Gorlam Prime, and become Headmasters.

Who is Cyclonus working with anyway? Megatron, Bludgeon, Nemesis Prime or Banzaitron?

I'm starting to think that the Micromasters from spotlight Nightbeat are in fact people from Gorlam Prime who got upgraded.....

I like that theory!

But the only one with the ability to give out Headmaster technology seems to be Scorpy, which means Nightbeat and Hardhead would have to make it back to Earth somehow...

I'm guessing that Cyclonus is "working" for Galvatron. I'm also thinking that Galvatron will be the one to kill NP, then Galvatron and Cyclonus will start their own army.

Look at it again, see that black thing atached to the leg?
That's the body of the rider, you can see his sholders, and were his head should be is a windscreen, I'm thinking that's something like a helmet.
