Wait is Ramondelli doing windblade as well? I like him more than most here, but I really adored everything about sarah stone's work.

Stone is doing Windblade #1 and #3, Ramondelli all the other issues in CW (including Windblade #2). It's a matter of deadlines and speed of production, I'm told. ;)

Aw that makes me sad. Oh so is windblade still, going to be a miniseries or after combiner battle royal, doesn't seem like to much of a war, is she an ongoing.?

An ongoing it is, though we still do not known what the full creative team is. Scott definitely writing, waiting to hear confirmation on art.

I may have to get the alternative covers for these. Don't care for the inside pages done like this but I love covers in that style :D

REALLY dissapoints me to see Devastator drawn here with tread arms and hands that are oviously meant to be built into the transformation and not extra parts that attach. This drawing is exactly what I was hoping for on the Titan class toy.

Just get Hercules instead then. :lol:

In all seriousness though I agree. It could have been easily engineered and is a much better way of forming his arms. Given the overall G1 look they seem to be going for though I guess they avoided that to preserve the (kinda daft) "entire vehicles for shoulders with nondescript boxes for forearms" look.

I really don't understand your comment. How would a female combiner be any weirder then a male one? Also the comics are more aimed at slightly older fans.

Anyone ever notice that combiners are essentially transformers having a mass orgy? I don't think throwing lady bots in the mix will make anything more weird, in fact it has the potential to make it less weird.

That's like saying it's not a good idea to have female transformers, because it would be wierd.

Not going to lie, I wish they would have gone with a different artist. While his work is good for flashback type stories, he's just not..detailed and clear enough for regular stories for me.

Because like, you know, there are NO FEMALE transformers fans out there. It'd be like...adding male ponies to a My Little Pony Line.

Don't get me wrong, GREAT figure, but this artwork is just better.

I have never seen Devastator rendered like this, but I am with you in thinking this would be a better representation of Devastator than the separate forearms that attach.

I used to hate Ramondelli's work as well. I felt it was very nondescript and abstract and hard to follow. I still feel that way sometimes, but I also think his work has gotten better, a bit more fluid and cleaner.

I like Ramondelli's art style best when its flashbacks, early and pre-war time and also things set in the dead universe.
