Seibertron.com members Lawson and ZenithF0RTE have alerted us to two listings on Amazon.com for two volumes of IDW paperbacks (most likely comic books) for the upcoming Transformers: Animated series. The covers of which feature Optimus Prime and a different version of Megatron, resembling more his "War Within" incarnation than the early form of "Animated" Megatron we saw at Comic-con, who shared a similar head design to the Transformers Movie 2007 incarnation of Megatron. The paperbacks are scheduled for release on January 15th 2008.

I can't wait for these bad boys. I'm diggin the fireman Prime thing, and that Megs is an incredibly G1 accurate homage.

Very cool looking Megatron, someone from another forum pointed out the strong resembalence to Super Megatron from Transformers: Zone- more than co-incidence I think, the makers of this series seem to have done their research...
Roll on next year!

Samuri Megs aint to bad, Prime is horrible!

To qoute Siebertron himself when all this started, "Hasbro, are you serious!?!"

Most of his pics have shown the cannon. They probably just left it out of here along with the other stuff that should be present like quality.

I can definitely get behind that Megatron. Could use more BFG, but he's definitely megatronnier than any animated (or CGI) Megatron has been in the last 20 years !

OH FOR THE LOVE OF JESUS MOSES AND ALL THAT ARE HOLY.

People finally get a Megatron, after 20 years that looks 90% like their precious G1 Megatron, and you start bitching about his weapon? This is the first time we saw him. He may pull a Cliffjumper, you know?

But anyway, he looks freaing awsome.

I'm sorry I just had to get this out before the Geewuners marched in.

Still hate Primes look but Megatron doesnt look half bad. He's the only really good one from the cartoon so far. Now all he needs is his arm cannon and we're set.

The thing is about megatron here is they were obviously going for the G1 look. But leaving off the arm cannon is kinda like telling someone they're going to make you a grilled cheese sandwich...getting good melty cheese, the best bread you can find, putting a hint of butter on the outside to make sure it gets a good golden-brown color & a hint of added flavor....& then instead of cooking it in a skillet on a stove they just throw it in the microwave for 30 seconds. :SICK:

Personally, I think he's pretty cool. But taking that extra step would have made him sooo much better.

Well that is megatrons earth mode just to tell you. You can tell becuase the cybertronian mode the to we saw looked different and had a different head and stuff. So thins is his earth mode that turns to a gun. Also i think his arm cannon couldnt fit or he didnt need it or somthing. Becuase he is confirmed to have one in both forms. Also Optimus is also looking kick ass.

Wow, his Earth mode is actually pretty cool. I wonder what he turns into? I might actually get his toy though. Looks like I'll be buying 3 'cons and 1 'bot out of this line. :P

If series 1 Megatron looks like Movie Megatron then maybe Movie Megatron in Movie 2 will look more like this guy on the paper back????

Yeah, but in your arm isn't quite the same as on your arm. I mean, think about it. Which is more intimidating: a guy with a concealed waepon, or one that openly flails it around? It's obvious that the later is, because you know it's there & what it's capable of. a concealed weapon wouldn't do that, because you don't know he has it on him untill it's too late to get scared.

Yeah, I know I'm nitpicky. :P
