THE WAR BEGINS! The first strike in COMBINER WARS is against WINDBLADE’S homeworld—and she’s not happy about it! Her long- lost CYBERTRONIAN colony is found… and the only thing that can protect it is SUPERION.

I wonder, is that a new body for Swindle?

"Mah nam ish Shwindl, an dish ish mah combinator."

IDK why, but that's what I imagine Swindle saying right now.

Looks like a Cybertronian reworking of the Figueroa/Costa version - and one that may have featured already in the previous Windblade series. The only issues is that all the angles that he's drawn in, we never really see the full body design. So definitely maybe.

The "Commander" reminds me of Prime Dreadwing

Same here, but that head is something else entirely.

I want to see the next page after Swindle reveals his identity, I see Menasor.

READ IT NAO!!!

But seriously, Can't wait to see what Starscream does. I really love it when Miss Scott writes him. But I certainly hope he doesn't revert to being an "evil" character - he's been so interesting these last 2 years.

I think there's a general reading of Starscream as 'the bad guy'. Does he want power? Yes. Is he a bad guy in the ways in which he goes about getting it? Yes. But he is not an enemy of Cybertron. He's a narcissistic leader, who actually believes he can bring better things to Cybertron, but has a tendency to slip into too much of a tyrant silhouette.

And I quote Zangief:
Image

He is a really interesting, if morally dubious and questionable a lot of the time, character. And I think both Barber and Scott have given him some great writing and room to grow.

The shape of his chest reminds me of the chest "plates" Breakdown and Dead End have in their new Combiner Wars bodies.

I'm really excited for this, though I wish More than meets the eye came out between the Combiner Wars stories so that it came out on an almost every other week basis. Sarah Stone's art is awesome as always and I think we will have Superion v. Menasor round 1 this issue.
Plus, since that is Hot Shot and Lightbright in Camien versions, that, in my opinion, must be Camien Dreadwing with a battle mask.

Exactly, that's what I've loved about him lately. I Just feel like everyone is saying "we need to rebel because our leader is Starscream" even though he (a) hasn't done anything seriously detrimental to the planet or society and (b) was elected by the majority of the populace. Even Ironhide should know that would make them enemies of the people that actually want him in charge, other than the Decepticons.

Granted, whatever he does with the Enigma probably is Bad, but still, that's like the first truly bad thing he's done since getting elected.

Definitely looks like G2 Afterburner, not Prime Dreadwing

Decepticon619 is correct. That is G2 Afterburner. Nice catch!

Hmm, Hot Shot, who already died at least once becomes another filler character, and next to him is "Animated" LightBright.

Except that was not HotShot who died just a look alike plus since Hot Shot is on Caminus the two can't be the same guy.


Plus he is called Hot Rod and not Hot Shot here http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Hot_Rod_(Henkei!)

Since Caminus left Cybertron before the war it would not be possible for those two Hot shots to coexist unless Hot Shot was just injured super bad by Dragstrip, got fixed up, left the planet and found his was to Caminus
