"Harbinger of the Unlife?"
Hmmm, interesting.
If anyone says "Ooo, ooo! It's Unicron, its gotta be. LOL!", I'll whip you ! Just you watch.

Anyhoooo, I'm finding it rather difficult to discern what exactly is going on from what we got here, it all seems a bit fragmented, rather than it being a coherent snippet, as seen from the standard five page previews for upcoming releases - which, it's pretty obvious that this is not what it is.
I am so pleased that there will be a direct tie-in to Escalation, after things were left far too open-ended than I would have preferred. By the way, isn't Ratchet's helmet supposed to be red? Er, umm, I'm just saying. At any rate, the Escalation tie-in by itself is giving me a GOOD reason to pick this up. Then second round of Spotlights have been pretty good thus far, looks like this should follow suit.

edit: No!!! The clichéd glowing disco-ball of Transform lore is in this continuity, after all?

Must have gone to the salon....

Oh bugger. Bit worried about the matrix stuff.

On the other hand, I think we might be seeing a more HP-Lovecraft-Old-Ones-style Galvatron than anything Unicronesque.

Wow that looks great, loving that cover too! Very mean! When's this issue out?

This does mean we've seen 7 or 8 pages of this though what with the earlier previews.

EDIT: Just found the date: 27th June. Excellent!

I too find disco balls worrying, especially when they are thrust at me in the heat of the moment.

He might get out his Hot Rod and make it grow into a Rodimus Prime!

Yeah, and Unicron will, like, just suddenly appear, and they'll be, like, "Look! It's Unicron!" and, and, and then Rodimus will open up a can of glowing-disco-ball-of -shattering-blue-light-whoop-ass, and....No!!!!!! We will not go there!
