He also said Issue 55 is going to be very special to him. I wonder why :-? :MAXIMAL:

He mentioned on Twitter last week that he's been offered a "great opportunity" and was wondering whether to take it.

I'm still surprised we haven't gotten a Soundwave based on this design. The FoC voyager was close, but some re-tooling could've made him this!

Anyone else a big fan of the comics lately? Just me? :(

There were rumours of having Soundwave wear the OP/Motormaster CW mold, but with the TR leader class toy coming out, I doubt that'll ever come to fruition. :/

Shame, I really like Barber/Griffith's Soundwave, too.

I like where ex-RID has been heading. All the characters seem very three-dimensional in their motivations, and Galvatron is a great villain. I've really been enjoying the focus on Arcee, as well as watching Optimus Prime head down a pretty dark path.

I've been hoping that was a possibility for a while. Also, you forgot the "u" in "mold" so I added it :lol: AND, watched your upload to the Seibertron YouTube for Titans Return at BotCon, nice job!

I'm a big fan of Galvatron, who would've thought he wouldn't like the Enigma of Combination. It's a great tactical advantage but it isn't pure to him. Wow. His one-liner about being worried that Optimus was a "Prime in name only" was nice :lol:

Seeing this cover, I thought it was Blackrock/Onyx in full mech form. Is he going by ROM now?

Did I miss something?

That is an incentive variant cover promoting the new ROM the SpaceKnight series from IDW - not an actual crossover (not yet, anyway). :D

Variant cover to celebrate the new ROM the Spaceknight series. Has nothing to do with the content of the issue.

In all seriousness, I'd really rather they didn't. There's a whole bunch of mythology to play around with before forcing a crossover that, right now, really would not work. :(

Apples iTunes has provided us with our next preview, and it is for Transformers 55! The 3 page preview shows off Galvatron beating up some people, Arcee flying in to combat him, and some interesting interaction between some cassettes and Cosmos. Check out the preview and comment below!

I feel like Galvatron is about to toss Astrotrain right into Arcee, or right into the heart of the planet or something like that. And I like the guy too!
