I’m more baffled by Slag on the cover since he’s dead

Slag? I just see Sludge, Snarl, Strafe and Swoop.

TBH i hope they used the advent of the power of the primes line to redesign the dinobots.

nicks designs for em just dont work with other artists IMO.

Particularly swoop who always looks god awfull.

its the dinobots for gods sake, they should look awesome charging into battle. instead im always left feeling a bit "meh" . thats a bad sign considering theyre my favorite sub group.

I agree, the look the Dinobots have had since RiD/ex-RiD/OP started haven't really worked for me. I want them to get some redesigning

Via both IDW Publishing and Previews World, we have variant covers for upcoming issues of the ongoing Transformers series Optimus Prime, namely issue #12 and #13! The talent seen in the art belongs to Andrew Griffith and Joana Lafuente for the former, with Thundercracker and Buster on one and the other sporting a general classics line-up plus Windblade (using those Authentics/evergreen designs, in fact); we find Kei Zama and Josh Burcham on the main cover for #13, with Andrew Griffith taking on a close-up of the Dinobots (as Ramondelli works on interiors, which looks like a continuation of the Dinobot Trilogy story). Check them out below!

With Optimus Prime trapped on Cybertron, the Autobots track down their missing friend, Jazz-and find themselves under fire from humans armed with Cybertronian weapons.

Bullet points:
* While First Strike blows up Cybertron, the Autobots must keep the peace on Earth!

As the consequences of the First Strike event reverberate, Optimus Prime ventures into the wilderness of Cybertron to search for the first new Cybertronian life to emerge in four million years!

Who's the Autobot on the cover with Optimus and Arcee?

I believe that's Sovereign, Alpha Trion's temporary Headmaster/Titan Master in the IDW continuity.

Sovereign is technically Blackrock, not Alpha Trion's head, but that is also my guess!

Blackrock! Looks like he’ll be staying on Cybertron after First Strike. Will the rest of the Revolutionaries be joining him?

It'd make sense to drop them off in Barber's hands. Of course, I can also imagine a scenario where they sideline some of those characters for a while.

They can't sideline The Greatest Hero of Them All.

this intrigues me. I see the Evergreen designs for Prime, Bee, Megs, Screamer, and Soundwave, but the 3 Autobots(and Windblade)in the background are new designs for Wheeljack, Hot Rod, and I think Ironhide. I hope we'll see more of those designs in the future, because I like them.

I like the inks of the Artist Formerly Known As Slag cover, but the colouring looks like it was done in a speed challenge :D

In new news from IDW Publishing, we have the clean art (instead of the logo and details version) of another cover from the ongoing Transformers series Optimus Prime's 14th issue (due in December), by Kei Zama and Josh Burcham. And if you're a spoopy lover, you will probably appreciate this take on Bludgeon and his synthoplasmic outer shell face. Check it out below!
