If I can say one positive thing about it, the colouring looks much better then the usual gloomy darks that seem to be used for Milne. Absolutely hate his faces though.

You can see why it took so long for people to work out he was subbing for Pat, though, can't you?

There's got to be some sort of bet going on at IDW to try and do something uglier than Origin hasn't there?

Congratulations. This is the attitude that dooms us all to inane fiction.

Seriously, I hope the toy turns out to be a badly engineered, cheaply made derivative piece of garbage. Just to spite everybody saying "oh, well it's an awful fanwank character from a shit comic, but it looks badass!"

Oh, who am I kidding. It's a Hasbro car. Of course it will be.

[EDIT] I've just made a point of finding out what the toy looks like. I love being right.

The toy looked decent enough IRRC (and no, I can't be arsed to check, go research!), but by far the best thing about him was that the "FIRST EVER TRANSFORMER BASED ON A CHARACTER FROM THE COMICS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" lie is rendered even more bollocks by him not even being the only comic based character in the next range of classics. I really hope Straxus/Darkmount gets put out on shelves first out of principle.

Shane McCarthy comments on his blog:

http://www.smactalk.com.au/?p=201

My favorite line: "Along the way well be introduced to an exciting new angle [read: retcon] to the IDW Transformers universe and learn just whats up with all of those swords (especially when you could just have a good blaster at your side)."

Well, at least he's not pretending that writing comics is his proper job anymore.

I think many people may be at a loss for words over Alex Milne's art...

Bloody topic bumping spamers, I'd completely forgotten about this till now. It's like the comic version of Nick Brendon.

Except he actually has a decent reason for being incoherent gibberish and I'd probably be less embaressed to be seen in public with him.

And now you've doomed anybody coming to it after I deleted the spam to the same fate.

I deleted the spam. It said so when I did it. The fact it now says that you did it is lies, filthy lies. Which is fitting in a thread about IDW and Drift.

Though scarily the spammer seemed more interested in McCarthy's blog than any real person would be. So much for artificial intelligence.

Merged with existing thread.

The link as originally put on Amazon credited it to Ferguson, though at the time of writing (not sure about when Bluestreak saw it) Milne is the listed co-author with McCarthy on the link in the first page, as per IDW's own announcement.

Don't pay too much attention to Amazon listings. They require them so far ahead that publishers often haven't finalised details.

At the moment, I've seen Drift out over here as part of the Generations line and I do plan on getting him, however there is no sign of Straxus/Darkmount. Does anyone have a picture of what Straxus Darkmount looks like?

From an art point of view, it looks as if most of the Ninja Wingers are going to be thin white robots with swords. That's not going to make telling them apart hard now is it?

Some of them are thin yellow robots with swords.

Yeah, going by the cover art in that other thread, I doubt it'll be easy to tell who's who. Then again, if McCarthy is true to form they'll all be generic interchangeable badasses anyway, so it won't matter.
