"The book is all about the origins of the war, the Decepticons and my favorite Transformer of all - Megatron. The project came about because as long as this war has been going on, I had never seen a definitive origin that gave a reason for things to end up the way they are in regular continuity. There's talk of a war, and gladiatorial battles and some general pursuit over the control of energy, but it was never tied up in a way that could you why".
"There'll be a bunch of other Transformers in the story, all a little tweaked from what you know. It's fun to imagine who is doing what before the war. The focus is mostly on the classic characters, the ones there right from the beginning. Prowl. Soundwave. Starscream. A few of the lesser-seen characters. Ratbat. Blades. A bunch of cameos of people in civilian life. We have a Prime, but it's not Optimus - it's Sentinel Prime. There are a lot of ideas in this. I honestly wish I had more pages - you could do a lot "before the war" and continue it as the war is spreading across the planet".

Well, we're rooting for Megs, that's for sure.

That would make sence.

I get Ratbat, Soundwave & Starscream obviously, but Blades just confuses me. Whatever, I can't wait for this.
He was in the UK comics, you can clearly see his face and chest there:
