As nice as the art is, and as funny as Hotrod looks, I still prefer the April Fools Version...

This Continuity looks more and more interesting. Perhaps I'll order the comic afterwards on the site.

Im sure everyones still upset that the April Fools version is not the real one after seeing this.
Nope, I'm not. I prefer my Tf more like this, I haven't gotten into the toys, but this story looks awesome.
Is that CJ or not, because Rodimus calls him Jumper.

i like how this ties into timelines part 2. cliffjumper gets lost in a cave at the beginning and bug bite is from an alternate universe (not shattered glass by the way)

You know, I really enjoyed the April Fool. It was a really fun throwback that had some excellent nods to the past. Have to say that this is almost just as good. But that's largely owed to Ruckus' presence.

I liked the look and story of the April Fools comic too. But this is good too. I love that Rodimus! We NEED to have a figure of him! He must be one of the add-ons. Let's see, so the line up so far is:
1 Optimus Prime[CONFIRMED]
6 Rodimus[NOT OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED]
7 Blurr[NOT OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED]
3 Razorclaw[NOT OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED]
4 Rampage[NOT OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED]
5 Divebomb[NOT OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED]
6 Armada Wheeljack Repaint[RUMOR]
7 Minicon Windsheer Repaint[RUMOR]
BotCon cannot come soon enough.

I was wondering if they were going to have a type of story where one bot falls through a wormhole type off thing or if they were just going to start a story set in the alternate universe and have no cross over. Either way, I'm intrigued.

You still might. They released the last two Botcon exclusive comics in retail.
