This is the kind of thing you never saw with a Jeff Anderson made-up-character, who invariably looked like a generic, blocky cartoon Ironhide knockoff. Perhaps a little unfair, as he did go to the trouble of redesigning Swoop and Divebomb with Cybertronian robot and alt. modes in 'What's in a Name'...

EDIT 3 Is there perhaps a reason why the Functionist council all have similar nondescript, almost Whirl-like faces? Are they a committee of criminals?
I reckon remote-controlled bodies of some sort. Why? I have no idea...

Don't forget there's the anti-Megatron cabal on the ship. Maybe Brainstorm isn't, in fact a Decepticon, but is working with them -and naturally, his contribution to the cause would be the most extreme.

Ah, yes - though isn't he departing soon to star in the much-awaited Drift mini series from Shane McCarthy?

Or he's Archforce, a purple clone of Megatron who later takes the form of a T-Rex and says "yes" alot.

But without Ratchet or Prime on board what impact does Tarn being Roller really have? Surely at this point in the story it's got to be someone tied to Megatron. Or even this: an absolute nobody, who's rabid commitment to the Decepticon cause saw him elevated to head of DJD, if only to keep him out o...

Everything Yeah, "Rossum's Trinity" deals nicely everything you've said there - a sudden trauma to any of those organs (a brain bullet, a blow to the spark or the t-cog) causes feedback that blows out the other organs. It's an elegant explanation and adds another little layer to Transformer culture...

As an IDW-specific question I'm not sure it's one we can answer (though something very much like this happened in an old BotCon comic). They've never really told us what the spark and brain module do in this universe. Is the spark just their "life force", and the brain module the seat of their iden...

Building something from scratch and repairing it while it's in operation are two different things, though. I mean, try working on your car's engine while it's running and see how far you get. I don't doubt that they can take a brain apart and put it back together again. I'm just not sure the person...

I don't think that necessarily follows. The spark is an absolutely essential part too, but slice yours in half and your doctors (other than Pharma apparently) won't have a clue how to fix it. Brain modules might be serviceable, but it's equally possible that you can't touch the hardware (as opposed...

I can't see anything wrong with combiner wars. Its always been an interesting concept, melding five minds, and I've not really seen a decent stab at it in Transformers comics. It would be interesting to see what James Roberts would do with the idea. The best example I've seen so far was in Cliffjum...

If they'd just taken Megatron out back and shot him...well, that would still be awful but at least it would be reasonably civilized. Instead they undertook to erase everything that made him who he is and replace him with a totally new Government-Approved Person™, because Primus forbid they let a fu...

Like Aunty Slag says, there seems to be bit of commonality in design between sparkeaters, the necrobot and the robots that populate the Institute. Very curious to see where it goes.

Oh, and Dent/Prowl was apparently a "Predabot" - perhaps our friend Animus was as well?

(Rather than Razorclaw, Animus' design reminds me more of the second wave of original Pretenders, with animal motifs set into their entire chest armour.)

There's a lot we still don't know about sparkeaters - they're clearly of Cybertronian origin, but what makes one? Did Kaon make his pet , or just find it and domesticate it? Rung's clearly got more to him, as well. Notice how, on the alternate Lost Light, he apparently 'disappeared' in the explosion...

Anyway, I'm fairly confident that Roberts has something planned with Rewind, if the cover for issue #35 is anything to go by. We shall se
That is an interesting cover - something to do with Rewind's old flame, Dominus Ambus, perhaps?
