And from Livio on the Insecticons:
"One of the noble goals @papiblez and I have on TF: Galaxies is to deliver one of the most disturbing versions of the Insecticons ever"

The enigma has been adopted by the whole franchise though, as seen in the card game and the toyline (it was used in the power of the Primes line)

Doesn't mean the comic has to.

But yeah, because we have scientists and inventors galore in Transformers that could and have created the Gestalt technology in the past. A logical concept for an advanced alien race. But no, let's just dumb down the mythology and say a trinket did it #-o

Who says the enigma wasn't created by scientists? Besides this could be an edict to help simplify the mythos, same saying all tfs had sparks, which was a concept that beast wars introduced and carried forward to this day.

Devastator was always kinda a unique combiner in comparison to the Scramble City-types that followed. Maybe scientists will try reverse-engineering him in an attempt to reproduce the results of the Enigma without actually having access to the artifact?

Except that makes it more convoluted. Instead of a play on Frankenstein's Monster, we potentially have scientists creating a gizmo to create Frankenstein's Monster. Which is stupid. Strike two, would be the fact that Sixshot exists in universe, already. When you have one extremely powerful Multi-Former that can do six things, what is the point of having Gestalt technology at all?

That is why it is never a good idea to add Multi-Formers into a universe too early. They are an end product. A technological advancement beyond Gestalt. Hopefully they make them a bit more special (and durable) in the new continuity.

The Spark thing does make me laugh when people try to retroactively place it into G1. There are so many inconsistencies you really can't IE the Optimus Prime Floppy Disc.

I'm intrigued by the mention of Glyph; makes me wonder if WFC's Bumblebee figure (whenever and whatever it'll be) will have a Glyph retool (i.e. an actual mass-released Glyph toy).

I don't care about the Constructicons/Devastator and the Combaticons/Bruticus. I don't care about their origins if they were created by the Enigma of Combination, Omega Supreme, Starscream, Vector Sigma, a group of mad scientists, or something else.

I don't care about the Constructicons/Devastator and the Combaticons/Bruticus because IMHO they're all overused to a sickening degree and they all are boring as hell to me. If this series was about the Stunticons, Predacons, Seacons, Terrorcons, Dinoforce/Pretender Monsters, or even one of the Autobot teams like the Areialbots, Protectobots, Technobots, or the Trainbots, then I would be willing to give this series a chance.

Thanks to a few new posts to IDW's Twitter we have two new Constructicon profiles for you to enjoy. This round gives us the master at the turn tables and the chemistry lab, the Mixmaster, and the man with the plan, the chief engineer who the rest of the team fears, Scrapper! These profile cards are very much in the vein of the classic tech spec file cards that came with all the G1 bots that gave each character a distinct personality and power rating. These are definitely a fun lead up to the Transformers: Galaxies series debuting next month. Galaxies is written by Tyler Bleszinski with art duties handled by longtime Transformers artist Livio Ramondelli.

Enjoy the views and be sure to share your favorite Constructicon and Devastator memories with us in the forum. As always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

Thanks to Twitter posts from IDW, series writer Tyler Bleszinski, and series artist Livio Ramondelli we have the tech spec profiles for all the new IDW Constructicons! These give some awesome flavor and backstory to these great characters who have been staples of the franchise for 35 years. Enjoy reading up on the bot with the plan Scrapper, the new and insecure (yet utterly valuable) Scavenger, the lofty Hook, stalwart and powerful Long Haul, the chemical genius Mixmaster, and the probably insane Bonecrusher.

The first issue of Transformers: Galaxies: Constructicons Rising is scheduled to ship this month! Be sure to pre-order your issue as soon as possible at your local comic shop. Pre-ordering is a huge help to the title and ensures you'll get your copy as soon as possible. You can find your local comic shop by going to comicshoplocator.com.

This page shows everything I hate about Livio Ramondelli. It's not the art style, it's the terrible use of storytelling. You either get a very far away shot or a shot that's way too up close and hat last panel gives you an angle of their back, filled in shadow, instead of their front. While there is no way to confirm, this really feels to me like this approach is to draw as little as possible. I get doing shortcuts here and there but this is a page full of them and it really hurts the reading experience when the whole point of a comic is the added visuals to the storytelling.

Agreed. Visual narrative is my thing and his is always.. off, from what it should be. I struggled to even finish the Primacy Trilogy because of it.

I really enjoy his sense of scale and readily find a sense of motion in the work. I can see Wheeljack snapping back with that glare or on page 3's bottom panel it feels like those big vehicles are really coming at me. His work in Redemption with the Mad Max homage story was super awesome to me with the action scenes flowing at a cinematic-like pace in my head. There's a panel in Salvation (I think) with Typticon ravaging Iacon some distance away with Swoop or Starscream, I forget, flying from the foreground in that direction and it's just :x

Taste in art is subjective of course, but personally I like his style for the stories he gets put on.
