The depth of character being pumped into this new world of Transformers is truly amazing. Writer Tyler Bleszinski with artist Livio Ramondelli seem to be natural fits to the launch of this new arm of the IDW Transformers world. We'll be sure to post here as new ones arrive but until then also enjoy an image posted by Livio to his Twitter of Insecticon Kickback feasting on...something. Let your imaginations whirl with that one, Livio's art makes it easy enough to do so most times.
Enjoy the views and share your thoughts with the Seibertron crew in the forum. As always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!
And from Livio on the Insecticons:
"One of the noble goals @papiblez and I have on TF: Galaxies is to deliver one of the most disturbing versions of the Insecticons ever"

But yeah, because we have scientists and inventors galore in Transformers that could and have created the Gestalt technology in the past. A logical concept for an advanced alien race. But no, let's just dumb down the mythology and say a trinket did it

ZeroWolf wrote:Who says the enigma wasn't created by scientists? Besides this could be an edict to help simplify the mythos, same saying all tfs had sparks, which was a concept that beast wars introduced and carried forward to this day.
Except that makes it more convoluted. Instead of a play on Frankenstein's Monster, we potentially have scientists creating a gizmo to create Frankenstein's Monster. Which is stupid. Strike two, would be the fact that Sixshot exists in universe, already. When you have one extremely powerful Multi-Former that can do six things, what is the point of having Gestalt technology at all?
That is why it is never a good idea to add Multi-Formers into a universe too early. They are an end product. A technological advancement beyond Gestalt. Hopefully they make them a bit more special (and durable) in the new continuity.
The Spark thing does make me laugh when people try to retroactively place it into G1. There are so many inconsistencies you really can't IE the Optimus Prime Floppy Disc.

I don't care about the Constructicons/Devastator and the Combaticons/Bruticus because IMHO they're all overused to a sickening degree and they all are boring as hell to me. If this series was about the Stunticons, Predacons, Seacons, Terrorcons, Dinoforce/Pretender Monsters, or even one of the Autobot teams like the Areialbots, Protectobots, Technobots, or the Trainbots, then I would be willing to give this series a chance.

This page shows everything I hate about Livio Ramondelli. It's not the art style, it's the terrible use of storytelling. You either get a very far away shot or a shot that's way too up close and hat last panel gives you an angle of their back, filled in shadow, instead of their front. While there is no way to confirm, this really feels to me like this approach is to draw as little as possible. I get doing shortcuts here and there but this is a page full of them and it really hurts the reading experience when the whole point of a comic is the added visuals to the storytelling.
