I'm just loving that one of them is named Leader-1. Yes, I actually like the GoBots, and that was just cool to see in a current comic.

Actually, it's a homage to the Mini-con named Leader-1 from Transformers Armada who was paired up with Armada Megatron.

Leader-1 was Magatrons minicon in Armada so it's only fitting that he watches his cell

I need this comic and these guys. Third party, make these guys. They don't have to transform, just little rubber minicons to grace my Animated shelf and look cute doing so.

I like DUCK-E, reminds me of WALL-E. And also some of my favorite Mini-cons are thrown in there as well! ;)

While there may have been a Mini-Con called Leader-1 in Armada, the truth is, Leader-1 was the leader of the Guardians (The good guys) in GoBots, which pre-dates Armada. By quite a number of years. Hence, this is an homage to GoBots.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leader-1

I hate wikipedia in any capacity, but this is actually one of the only times its relevant.
Either way, this comic was pretty good. Just wish it was longer.

Look pal, this inclusion of Leader-1 is a direct homage to Armada Leader-1, not Gobots Leader-1. Armada Leader-1 is an homage to Gobots Leader-1 in name only.

Like this:

TFA -> Armada -> Gobots

Hey, thanks for trying to bite off my head. The name itself is related to GoBots, hence why I typed what I did. Its all referencing to the same origin. Your argument stands just as mine does. THE SAME.

So...they named them after their established canon names?

Brilliant. :roll:

Poor Sureshock. She certainly didn't listen to that diet I told her about.

Okay, I've not read the comic, but I coulda named the Street Action Team fairly easily. Leader-1 is kinda obvious now that I see it in his face. The Duck shoulda been Yellow, but it'd be cool if he baec ome the confidant of Animated Predacon Megatron.

Peej, I don't think it is. I coudl be wrong, but I don't think Armada Leader-1 is any more of a reference to Go-Bots than Armada Sideswipe is to G1. It's name re-use. Now, Energon Roddy is, for a reference point.

off topic: i went to TFWiki to reasd up on my Leader-1, and their site isn't loading. It worked last night, and at the 2:30am EST range.

In the Japanese dub of Armada (Micron Legend), Sureshock was called Arcee. The Armada MTMTE followed suit by saying she was female.
