While IDW Publishing's The Transformers and Windblade series have started exploring the aftermath of Combiner Wars, the upcoming one-shot Combiner Hunters goes a little bit further - and you can check out the iTunes three-page preview below too, featuring Arcee, Chromia and Windblade in their SDCC colours drawn by Sara Pitre-Durocher!

COMBINER WARS FALLOUT! Because you demanded it—WINDBLADE and CHROMIA team up with ARCEE to put an end to the menace of the COMBINER WARS—but will they end each other first?!

It looks like Ironhide is still using his WFC/FOC body and kinda upsets me that we never got a FOC Ironhide/Ratchet mold.

I gotta say, I don't like this look of Arcee being a badass. Her design back in G1 movie was as a stereotype female character. Her design lacks this certain x factor.

Couldn't they just work with Prime-verse's Arcee look to the main continuity? Prime-verse's Arcee has the sleek look, and a battle ready design.

Arcee here, I just don't like her G1-like design which strike to me as a pacifist bot. I always found this look to be more of a caretaker bot, rather than a badass killing machine. The black repaint doesn't do much, that and her toy's body proportion compared to Chromia and Windblade.

So you're saying something has to LOOK bad-ass to be lethal? That's funny because I happen to be the skinniest, most unassuming looking amongst all my friends and yet when the **** hits the fan, they all stand behind me because I'm the fastest, most precise and powerful fighter of all of us. I'm trained in the martial arts and proficient with 6 of the nastiest silent weapons to ever devastate a human body.
From my POV, having Arcee look unassuming and matronly is EXACTLY what you need in a deadly assassin bot. You can't really get close to your target if you are bristling with cannons and blades and 5 times larger than life. Kinda paints a big ol' bulls-eye on ones chest and fairly screams "Here comes the Death Squad! You better run!"

As long as it gets collected in a TPB too. Punishment looks so awkward just sliding in between my RID volumes.

Looks good so far.

And I wish Pitre-DuRocher could be permanent artist on Windblade. Howell's work (to me), is far too cartoonish and silly looking for serious storylines. Yes, P-D's bots are drawn a touch too toyetically correct, but they have a realness to them that Howell's don't.

Ironhide, "I think it looks nice."
Chromia, "Shut up!"

Please you two. You could cut the... whatever you'd call that type of tension, with a energon knife.

Kidding aside, I enjoyed the sample of writing (never would I have imagined "sitting-box" as an analogy for "ass") and I'm digging the artwork also. I wouldn't mind Sara Pitre-Durocher on the Windblade series to be perfectly honest.

Other than that, knowing that Chromia's new look is city speaker influenced (which now knowing that it seems obvious) I kind of want her Combiner Hunter figure more now.
