Remember when IDW artist James Raiz joined forces with Seibertron.com to figure out who should feature in his TFCon debuting print? We asked who you would like to see from the live-action movieverse for both G.I.Joe and Transformers - and James went and drew pretty much all the nominations!

If you haven't been following his progress in the Energon Pub thread (which you should) check out this working process video he shared with us - and be ready to be amazed. And keep your optics tuned for the next round featuring Decepticons and Cobra characters soon!

I know nothing about GI Joe, so I'm just going to not vote on that so the people with opinions can. That said, I would love to see Brawl on the piece. He was one of my favorite Con designs from the first movie. :CON:

Lockdown for sure. He was cool!
Barricade (is there any difference between first movie and DotM Barry?) with Frenzy.
Need a Megatron, I'll go with DotM cos I like his truck mode, his body design and the cloak and chains.
Got to have Starscream. again not sure what difference is between RotF and DotM versions but one of those cos I like 'tattoos'.
Soundwave (DotM looks best to me) with Ravage and Laserbeak.
Shockwave just cos.
Maybe Stinger just to annoy Bumblebee. :P

First off I have to say that the art so far is looking AWESOME!!!!! :grin:

Now for my choices for Cobra and the Decepticons.
For Cobra I pick - Destro :COBRA:
and for the Cons I choose Barricade :CON: ( I would say with Frenzy :CON:, but I can only choose one).
Bonecrusher would be awesome too, but if I had to pick one it would be Barricade.
You do have someone missing, I can't stand her, and I can't believe I am even bringing her up, but from ROTF there was Alice, she was a Decepticon......I guess.

Well like I said the art is already looking awesome and I can't wait to see the finished product.

Bonecrusher. Plain and simple. That was a good looking and mean con!
Destro for sure for the Cobras.
:BOT:

For the Decepticons-Bonecrusher. Any Devastator support couldn't hurt.
For the Cobra agents-Baroness. I don't think I've ever seen Raiz draw a (non-Cybertronian)female. I'd love to see how he draws her form, along with that awesome armor.

I'm think my vote's going to Blackout, but I do think Roadburn's on to something with Brawl.
Gotta love those military 'cons! xD

BTW: We need a Megatron (preferable RotF version) and Shockwave too. But Bonecrusher is still my top pic. :BOT:

One? :O
So hard to choose. I love so many of the movie Transformers.

Um. Fine I'll go with Lockdown cos he was awesome in AoE. And apparently voiced by Mark Ryan who played one of my fave childhood characters on TV; Nasir in Robin of Sherwood. (I know he's done a lot of voice work on the Transformers movies but Lockdown is his most badass).
