Woah, so this is basically what Cybertron would be had Megatron not risen up...

More and more I'm thinking Megatron had the right idea to begin with, and that Whirl definitely f*cked things up big time

I hate this so much. It doesn't make any sense. What's the point? We already know by February's solicits that this alternate timeline won't stick, not to mention RIDs story not being affected.

Also this Cybertron shouldn't even exist if the the war never happened than no one would've stopped Nova Prime and the Dead Universe in the -ation series. The expansion would have happened! This is why I can't stand stories like this. More padding for Roberts to avoid the quest.

That's another thing! What's the deal with that?! I can back up Rhinox, rattrap, waspinator because deep down those are G1 characters. Almost all beast wars continuities are in a g1 timeframe. Energon Prowl, ironhide, cyclonus? Those are alternate universe characters! Not to mention energon jetfire and Cybertron jetfire...THATS THE SAME CHARACTER!

Not looking forward to this...

They probably aren't meant to represent the Unicron Trilogy characters proper. They're just generics that use their character models.
Why do you keep getting mad, anyways? Seriously. Calm down, it's just a comic.

Because those arnt generics they're actual characters with history.

I agree with metro prime, these are just fan nods, I mean would energon jetfire really run away like that?

Also did miss the part were this was said to be the present? I thought this was just a flash back.

Now about the part were you think you know what's going to happen because of the previews...So what? That's the same for every comic. You have a choice not to read the previews. Did you kick off when you read about the previews for dawn of the Autobots when dark cybertron hadn't finished yet?

Also the part about them not being G1 characters...Cy-kill from go bots was in Megatron origins ;) and also Jihaxus who came from G2. Then there's all the new characters who aren't from G1 because they were created by the writers of this new series. Like Drift (who then appeared in Age of Extinction), Tryest and I could go on. Plus there's all the non-G1 events that go on. Chiefly Megatron being an Autobot. I don't understand why you have an issue with UT characters but things like that are fine?

Because we already have those characters. There's already a prowl, cyclonus, ironhide and jetfire in this IDW universe. Now for the sake of this excuse of a story there are 3 maybe 4 jetfires for the sake of filling a background for no reason. That's dumb. You can do that with a character like Jhiaxus because he was introduced as Jhiaxus. You can't just throw energon Ironhide and Prowl when we have a G1 ironhide and prowl in this universe. That's dumb. And im not going to accept "all the good names are taken" I didn't have time for that in issue 5 of MTMTE then and I don't 30 issues later.

I'm not sure I follow but the situation with Jihaxus is the same with these throw away background characters. The other jihaxus' s aren't like this version in fact to my knowledge there's three versions of the character, each with their own history. Regeneration 1 Jihaxus, Generation 2 Jihaxus and IDW Jihaxus. Now isn't that the same scenario as you are complaining about?
Re: IDW Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #35 Full Preview (1624595)

No because G2 Jhiaxus isn't in this scene. If he was then that would be the problem because we already have a Jhiaxus. I am fine with the reinventing characters, it's using characters from other universes that already have a counterpart in the existing universe. Like using energon jetfire in a universe where we already have a jetfire. That's my problem.

Here's an example, let's use Star Trek. Kirk and Spock are walking and in the background is evil Spock and evil Kirk from the mirror universe. They're not part of the story, it's not something that will return it's just an Easter egg.

That's what I'm talking about. You can't just throw in characters that have existing counterparts for the sake if it.

Using old character models as generics happens plenty of times - Armada was a big fan of it.

Personally, I prefer using an existing toy design as generics over random redshirts - tends to give the scene more detail. Plus, it seems pretty obvious to me that these characters aren't "Ironhide" or "Jetfire", even if they have a similar body. I just think "Hey, I remember that guy from when I watched Energon, that's a fun little easter egg".

Right i got the wrong end of the stick with what i thought you were complaining about, so I apologise.

That being said your complaint still doesn't hold water for a simple reason...Tankor..remember him or them as i should say. Fat Tankor and Thin Tankor as seen in the recent windblade mini series.

Also you said before about beast wars/machines being g1? Well your half right as they are in a splinter g1 timeline, just like IDWs series does.

I don't understand it when people grumble about other universe characters turning up in the IDW-verse it's always been that way live with it.

Also it has also been long established that more than one bot or con can have the same name. Prowl G1 & Prowl BW (renamed Dent), Tall Tankor & Fat Tankor etc...

Sky High from the original line is the first evidence that two different transformers can have the same name.

I'm happy to embrace all three Jetfire bodies within the unicron trilogy entering into the IDW-verse as new characters.
