Those are actually rather good! TFU whacks it into touch for depth, but from those fistful they don't seem to have pissed over anyone, and the layout's pretty cool. I just hope Pat Lee hasn't bagsied the better know characters, and we get Optimus with tits, Starscream with tits, etc, etc.

I gotta agree. The only thing I found wierd was the fact that they refer to Bluestreak's and Bumblebee's alt modes as "Earth Cars." Apparently they didn't know that Bluestreak is a Datsun, and Bumblebee a Volkswagen.

Possible copyright problems? Though the datafiles thing seems to be a hint that it's kinda from a Cybertron computer, so perhaps it's that they can't discriminate? But I do think those look good, kinda TFU Lite with a bit more variations in art - though I thought they'd already done art for Barrage the Insecticon?

Looking at it, I get the feeling Hasbro have flexed muscles and forced DW to behave... the character parts remind me of TFU with changed wording...

Yes... they are very similar to the TFU profiles. I like the art though, and it's good to see some of the lesser known characters. I also like how some of the bios come from the data tracks of other Transformers such as Shockwave and Optimus.

One question though... anybody figure out why'd they put Superion on the cover?

LOL, no idea, I figured it would have fall under something logical like "S" ( I know I know, silly me, TF's and logic)

I'm just wondering, is it Pat Lee doing all the art or do we get to see some of the other really talented artists as well?

are we going to see something like this for Armada and War With In?

According to memory, Lee's doing the artwork with Figueroa and Raiz in tandem.

Maybe "Aerialbots"? Maybe DW don't give a toss what they put on the covers?

Seems that they colored Bluestreak like his toy (gee, could that be some kind of advertisement?).

My only complaint is that they referred to Apeface's Nebulan partner as his "Headmaster." It always irritates me when people refer to them like that. The headmaster is the entire unit, not just the head. They should have called him the Nebulan, or the head. I know it's a minor thing, but it just bothers me.

Well, it makes sense to have a synchronised look for him, doesn't it?

That was before they cut each book in half and doubled the number of volumes. I believe it's something like $2.50 now because they realized that they'd sell more if they made smaller volumes that cost less.

Preview pages were a pleasant surprise for me. If I could walk into my comic store and just buy them, I would. I cant, so I wont. Though now Im a bit tempted to check how much NTFA store would ask for them.

I think the price was originally around $12 for the prestige format ones, and it's been halved to $5.95.

Osku, have you tried checking Steve Bax' place?

www.gazliter.co.uk not sure if prices reflect latest developments.

Yeah, those pages look pretty good I like the idea of personalising profiles through eyewitness accounts. I also agree that DW have probably been leaned on to kill the 'interwoven backstories' idea.

The series will undoubtedly make its way into TPB, so I might be tempted at that stage. Simple fact is that there's lots of other TPBs and stuff I'd rather get first, though.
