"Finally, my post-script digressions on Transformers Devastation #2 (first promised a few weeks back I know!). My excuse is, having trailered Devastation as a whole, I wanted a bit of breathing space before I launched into issue #2. As always, these will be teasers, not spoilers. Let’s start by talking heads… disembodied ones and Headmasters. There are two main story strands in issue #2 (though inevitably other sub-plots simmer onwards as well). One is Sixshot and his opening salvo, aimed directly at Earth’s Autobot Tactical Response Unit (actually, that happens in issue #1, but the fallout—literally—spreads onwards into issue #2). Not known for his subtlety, Sixshot is pretty much going to blow things wide open (again, literally!) in the saga as a whole. Then there’s Hot Rod and Wheeljack, who are off on their own mission (those of whom have wondered about the fate of Ironhide from Escalation #6, all will be revealed), one with a truly ‘crushing’ deadline, and end up being targeted by the Machination. Yes, it’s the full debut of the IDW-verse Headmasters. As always, expect dramatic differences from the Headmasters of yore. All this Headmaster-y stuff also feeds into further revelations on the fate of both Hunter and Sunstreaker. Now, when I mentioned disembodied heads, you thought I might finally spill the beans on who the Machination’s ‘head’ really is. Wrong. Different disembodied head. Boy, am I a tease! Oh, I’ll be back soon with another script (w)rap on Beast Wars The Ascending #2 (soon!)."

Isn't the Machination's "head" supposed to be Galvatron? I thought I remembered either Furman or Ryall hinting at a Galvatron cameo toward the end of Escalation, and the disembodied head talking to Dante was the only real possibility.

Really looking forward to Devastation, kind of annoyed all the movie junk is getting in the way.

Granted I hate the "Alternate Reality" excuse that he uses alot, but in my collections fiction I blame alot of things on BW Megatron's time tampering, which is pretty much the same.
But beyond that this guys stuff is great and I'd watch a show based on these writings!

Wouldn't that lend further credence to the notion that it is Scorponok?
