About time the Scavengers reappeared. Though Misfire's looking a bit more pink than I remembered...


Loving Elita One's over-the-top throne.

Like Arcee before her, Elita has to overcompensate for being pink.

Anyone else think Elita-1 comes from the same background as Cyclonus? Remember the thing Night beat said about it being against Cyclonus's beliefs to repair cosmetic injuries?

Yay for the Scavengers! I hope they actually meet up with the Lost Light, that would be cool and set up for a DJD/Lost Light showdown. Also excited to see Grimlock again!
That "The Transformers" cover A art reminds me of the Slaughterhouse art, just with different characters. I like it!
Looking forward to the 3rd colony issue. Really excited though to see what happens next, a new, unheard of colony not yet hinted at maybe? :BOT:

Wait who are the scavengers? Is that Dreadwind?

As for the Elita One cover...wow that's a good look for her though who is that head at the top of the chair?

I'm taking bets on which of the scavengers gets murdered horrifically :grin:

Wow that's some of the best transformers artwork I have seen in a while, especially the ones of kup,jetfire, jazz and sky-lynx

I hope elite 1 is of a similar background to cyclonus, he's one of my favourite characters in the idw universe

Elita-1's throne has turbines, wings, arms, and a face that looks like a Deception sigil, which makes me wonder -

(1) Could this have been the fate of Tarn's predecessor?

(2) What if the colonists just hate jets?

No, Dreadwind is not here. The Scavengers are, from left to right: Crankcase, Krok and Fulcrum, with Misfire in the front and Spinister in the back.They are a group of loser cons who are trying to return to Cybertron and who have encountered the DJD and currently have a damaged Grimlock :BOT:

1, whose to say Tarn has had a predecessor. It's seems very likely that the current Tarn is the first and only Tarn ever. Sure when the DJD recruit new members they take on the name of the previous but it wouldn't be a shock if there's only ever been one Tarn.

I personally have my own theory of Tarn and it's not Roller. It's someone else that's appeared in mtmte.

2. Yeah that's completely story telling... :BANG_HEAD:

Would that theory contain a certain brother of minimus ambus?

That;'s nothing, wait until you realize the floor tiles in her ship are people's flattened FACEPLATES.

Adding to the previews revealed a couple of days ago for next week's IDW comics releases, Kei Zama has taken to her Twitter account to share her RI variants for The Transformers #45 and More Than Meets the Eye #45! You can discuss each of the comics in their respective threads (here and here), but check out the baddie art mirrored below, featuring Galvatron (coloured by Yamaishi) and Tyrest, Pharma and Star Saber (coloured by Josh Perez).

Art is amazing for both. Really hope that MTMTE one is indicative of those 3 returning soon in some form or another. :BOT:
