Here is a preview for ongoing #8. But what the hell am I looking at? Insecticons work so much better in daylight, like in the cartoon.

Here is the rest of the previews:

Well.. umm.. uhh.. I have no clue. I see antennaes signifying an insecticon, but then theres something with big sharp teeth, and the first thing that comes to mind there is Grimlocks head... But then it looks like its being squished too. The commentary says Sideswipe and Sunstreaker are caught in the middle of all of them and are supposedly doing the "Squishing", but that can't be possible, since the Insecticons are the same size as them. The figure that looks like its stepping on them.. is somewhat round.. and yellow.. almost like Unicron. But I doubt it could be Unicron. Perhaps a Gestalt? But then the only Autobot Gestalt i can think of with yellow in it, is Computron. So.. I have no clue what it is.. Guess you'll have to ask Don what he drew....

Ok I'm almost positive that it is a hand that is grabbing Kickback, I believe. But why he exploded in his hand before he could grasp him is anyone's guess.

Says below that they're mutated, and the Insecticon clones were never that tough... it's going to be a cannon fodder fight issue, basically...

A hand? uhhh.. I guess I'm not seeing a hand, but if it is, then what is the thing that looks like sharp jagged teeth? It sure doesn't look like a hand.. more like a mouth.. from a dinosaur robot....

I love how the previews spectacularly ruin the plot for Energon #25 and #26...

I see a hand squishing Kickback`s robot head, but his head has razor sharp teeth for some reason. Maybe those teeth are part of their mutation.

This cover by Pat looks a hell of a lot better than the one he drew for the first issue.

It looks like Omega Supreme crunching either Kickback or a clone.

Omega doesn`t have any hands.

Actually one of Omega Supremes' (http://www.tfu.info/1985/Autobot/OmegaSupreme/OmegaSupreme.htm) limbs has a rocket with a claw attached. He could be referring to that. I still can't say who or what it is though.

And since when did they have a plot?

At least I can stomach looking at this cover, unlike this one:

On second thought, it's not Omega as his claw is orange colored. But the hand looks like's a lot bigger than any normal TF and could hold Kickbacks head in between it's index finger and thumb.
