Thanks to Apple Book preview, we have a look at the upcoming Transformers vs. The Terminator #3 comic book from IDW! #3 picks up following issue #2, with the conscious Autobots working on the damaged and fallen Autobots following the Ark shootout from issue 2. We get a little different crew than we are used to though. Prime, Bumblebee, Wheeljack, and Ratchet are the usual suspects for a G1 Ark story, but we get 2 outliers in the forms of Arcee, complete with a 1980's alternate mode, and IDW2005 original character Velocity also complete with a 1980's alt mode, which is her first ever Earth alt mode.

In addition to the preview, we get some design art for Arcee and Velocity, courtesy of Alex Milne on his Twitter page. Both designs are marvelous, giving us a great looking pair of ladies for the comic to run with. We also get the alt mode their robot modes were based on in Milne's description, which includes a 1983 Ford Mustang for Arcee and a 1977 Firebird for Velocity.

Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

I concur.

Arcee looks like she could be a Skids Retool. Burnout would then also be made using Skids' car but Arcee's body.

Velocity looks like she could be a reshell and retool of Tracks to get that upper body to work. Working kinda like AoE and TLK Drift with them being reshelled in such a way that it inverted what parts of the vehicle the robot parts came from. Then Roadrage could also be done.

Oddly enough, Tracks and Skids are due for new toys as they were both skipped during CW/PotP and in WFC so far with Tracks being long overdue for a new figure.

All wishful thinking though.

Oh man these designs are great! How about that kinda Arcee figure for Earthrise? A first Velocity toy would be great too.

So glad Milne is doing the linework for this series, I hope he never stops doing Transformers.

She was called out as a 1983 Ford Mustang, so not too far off

My only complaint? Arcee is a touch too big. Nothing wrong with bulkier female characters, mind - I absolutely loved the likes of Strika (Beast Machines) and Strongarm (RiD II) - simply I'm struggling to recognize the iconic character in this design.

Both of these designs look great! My only nitpick is that I wish Velocity still had her massive head crest-thing that her original design had, it was really unique.

This is amazing, we need more muscle car fembots. A foxbody totally fits arcee, ever so slightly diminutive but filled with power. And as a trans am fan velocity looks great too! :-D

Can we please get these as toys Hasbro? You totally could remould arcee into a taurus for a robocop crossover and velocity as a smokey and the bandit crossover. Nobody will mind at all! :KREMZEEK:

I’m enjoying the comic but the Terminator seems to be having FAR too easy a time of it.
