Via the usual iTunes screenshots magickry, we have our first look at the upcoming Transformers: Titans Return one-shot comic from IDW Publishing - the last big Transformers event before Revolution shakes the IDWverse about - as co-written by Mairghread Scott, John Barber and James Roberts. Check out the short preview below!

THE LAST AUTOBOT! Once he ruled CYBERTRON with a brutal (and literal) iron fist... left for dead four million years ago, SENTINEL PRIME is back. But in a world where STARSCREAM rules CYBERTON, OPTIMUS PRIME has invaded Earth, and MEGATRON is an AUTOBOT—SENTINEL doesn’t like what he sees!

So sentinel is going to usher in a new age of violence because he's the closest thing the cybertonians have to the kkk (better red then dead? I hope he gets fitting just desserts.

Still can't wait to see if they are introducing the concept of the titanmasters to idw, also are we going straight from titan returns to revolution?

I believe TR will be part of Revolution. Revolution involves pretty much the entire IDW universe of Hasbro owned properties, whereas TR is specific to The Transformers.

This TR is a one shot, my understanding being that it would kick off a series of issues that would cross all TF titles similar to CW, but now with Revolution thrown in the mix, I'm not sure how it will work out. I just want Fort Max to get a Titan sized body, so we can put the whole "who's bigger" Metroplex or Fort Max debate to rest. In IDW, at least they will be the same size to match the newest generation of toys.

I was thinking Revolution was something akin to Infestation I & II, except this time, only with Hasbro IP (TF, GI Joe, Micronauts, ROM, MASK...) cant remember if Visionaries is part of this, or just the Hasbro CU.

Not entirely sure about TR going directly into Revolution, but as far as we know, TF56-7 and MTMTE56-7 are continuing from here. TAAO will follow the storyline somehow come September, which is when Revolution hits, so you may have a point. :-?

(Visionaries is not part of Revolution. Action Man is.)

It'll be interesting to see what they've got cooked up for Sentinel Prime here. While he wasn't explicitly killed in Megatron Origin, I wonder where he's been hiding out all this time.

Aside from Abominus, Sentinel always seemed like the least characterized of the Primes. Not an imperialist tyrant like Nova or a ruler pushed to become a monster like Zeta. I like the idea of the betrayed hard liner we see here, just as long as it's sufficiently different from Galvatron's supremacist barbarism.

Because we definitely need more variety than your standard supremacist thinking. :-P

(I agree, just teasing.)

Happy to see Sentinel Prime return but hard to take the toy is a headmaster.

I'm looking forward to seeing how it plays out when he discovers Optimus Prime and then Megatron (now an Autobot) who put him in the ground.

Kind of a pity in a way that this is squeezed into this event as event story telling hasn't been great but then again IDW as a whole has been on the slip with all of its Transformers titles lately save a few bits here and there in my opinion.

How do you know he hasn't become a headmaster in the fiction now? Would that make the toy any better now?

Definitely interested in what Sentinel Prime has to say about the mess idw made of Transformers.

Then it's a Maximal with a very poor taste in alt modes.

Presumably he did die from his dialogue on the forst page, and he was brought back by the resurrection/deathwave in Dark Cybertron.

Oh dear, I think you're both quackers I find both of your jokes falling fowl off the mark.

That would make sense as to how he came back

I'm not so sure it was because of that event though, I'm betting it is more significantly titan focused, and I would be surprised if the titanmasters aren't brought into it.

True, but at least there is a plausible explanation that may not involve the titan masters. Though they most likely will be responsible

Well there's your explanation, guys - he was a Headmaster all along!
Loving that Acme Comics cover.

Anyone else think this comic takes place before Dying of the Light? The way everyone's talking so casually about being on the ship and not mourning... certain things... the fact Megatron's still saying he's renounced violence; seems to be that way to me. Not saying it DEFINITELY is, but I get that vibe.

The art is great! This is the first time I've seen Livio Ramondelli's art being so clean, clear and crisp. Do we have Livio himself to thank for this or whoever did the colouring?
