Thanks again to Seibertron for uploading the pictures! TFW2005, as usual just gave a link to the (unreachable) IDW and that was it. Plus, then there is the hassle of trying to open a very large PDF file.

However, it was an absolute bugger to download these pictures. Server problems?

Interesting, this looks like it may actually be quite fun :-)

Is this like the first time since the 84 marvel run, that the transformers have been in Portland?

Who was that strung up? Some of the colours are making me think Blitzwing but I don't believe it's him.

No. The decepticicons infiltration base was buried in the side of a mountain in Oregon during the entire -ation run by IDW.

Astrotrain, I think.

Edit: I say that because events in the story would line up right, but comparing pictures, it looks very little like Astrotrain.

According to TFWiki it is Blitzwing; shock of being de-combined from Galvatronus knocking him out and sending him ashore.

Ah, there's nothing like making you dislike G.I.Joe over Transformers more. Please continue. :D

Seems possible and that yellow head is what made me think it in the first place.

I wasn't going to give this a chance, due to not caring about any of the other characters besides the Transformers, but this art is beautiful. If the story is halfway decent, I'll keep up with it. Still, can't wait until Lost Light debuts.

It should be good and it's heavily based on what has happened in transformers

It's just Transformers v GI Joe all over again with Mask thrown in. Transformers has hundreds of it's own unexplored characters with bios already written on them. For a writer this is basically a manual on how to use the character. Thousands of stories can be written about how one Transformers personality and abilities plays off another on one of the many backdrops in the vast TF universe. Transformers doesn't need Mask, GI Joe, Rom or the Micronauts.

I don't know why IDW would even attempt this crossover. They hate to use big casts or even different characters. It's been Optimus vs humans and Jazz getting his chassis smashed on Earth for over two years now along with the same cast of Arcee, Jetfire, Cosmos, Kup and Soundwave.

Well, Magnus did kinda take him into space and imprison him... uh... somewhere.

I do wanna see him eventually return tho. Especially since the random 'cons around the universe need a leader. Not that there's a shortage of candidates right now - Deathsaurus/Nickel, Bludgeon; they could even bring back Sixshot...

Scorponok was imprisoned on Garrus-9 with Shockwave and was meant to have a pivotal role in Last Stand of the Wreckers but was cut out. Since G9 is now decommissioned he's no doubt toting around the Galaxy. I've always assumed he may have been the one that took grimlock off G9 during overlords occupation. He'll show up again eventually.

Bludgeon is still on Cybertron no doubt alive but he's not really a deception anymore. He just big walking ball of crazy nowadays

Sixshot will show up again eventually. If anything that awesome new toy may help with that.

Personally I just want it to be BW Megatron. It means we get one of the franchise's best characters, we get more Beast Wars stuff, and we won't have to worry about Hasbro asking IDW to turn Megatron into a Decepticon again since we'd have a Megatron in charge. Win-wins all around!

This^ so this. They could even use megaplex, and go the clone route.

Does it feel to anyone else like we've been going through the same song an dance with Transformers and humans for what feels like decades? It's always the humans hate transformers for being big destructive robots, but none of them can learn to tell the difference between good and bad robots despite the entire cybertronian race being color coded for their convenience at this point. Even when in engaged in obvious humanitarian efforts, in populated areas, this kind of thing constantly happens, it seems.

This isn't even a specific comics based problem, the movies are an even worse offender. It's getting tiresome that the automatic human response to the Autobots is to shoot them. There's no dramatic tension to any of it. What would be much more interesting is if there were actual, tense negotiations between the transformers and human leaders with everything becoming complicated due to the involvement of Rom, M.A.S.K, and the Micronauts bringing in more alien shenanigans.

To be fair in this specific instance, it makes a lot more sense in IDW where the 'good' and 'evil' robots aren't quite as easily defined. If anything, right now, the way Optimus is acting is VERY good reason to react the way everyone is - he's becoming a bit of a fruit loop honestly.
