Don Figueroa stopped in our very own comic book forum to visit for a bit, and who knows, you may just see him around Seibertron posting here or there.

Don was kind enough to take some time out and tease and talk to some of our community. Check out the original thread here and post some kind words to Don if you'd like.

The second thing that I wanted to mention was that Don shared a very AWESOME sketch from his sketchbook (See the piece below!). According to Don, this sketch is a 2-3 year old design he did for HASBRO. He also shared that this sketch should be one of those included in IDW's The Best of Don Figueroa collection.

Thanks to Don for all his very creative artwork, bringing alive our beloved characters, and inspiring lots of folks to pick up a pencil and paper and have a go at it themselves.

Keep up the great work!

That pic looks so perrrtttyyy, and it takes up most of the page.

For some reason, I cannot get enough if it. Guess who has to buy the book...

Looks like a Planet-former. Also looks a little too vicious to be an Autobot. I really like him though. Did Don give a name to this awesome guy? If this was a toy, I'd have a fangasm.

It is an unused Grimlock design. I didn't put it in the story because I though people would know.

Although to me it looks like it could have been his Cybertronian form in Beast wars: The Ascending, if he were to have one.

Holy balls! This is insane. Gotsta love all of Don's art. I'm surprised people didn't recognize Grimlock, though.

Looks like WWi Grimlock + Gamma Radiation.

Would also be an interesting basis for the ancestor of the Sharkticons/Alicons though.
