    That could also be someone else.But if your thinking its one bot then consider Headmaster Highbrow.

    Near where one would guess is the head of that figure you can see what looks like the blade of a helicopter.

    Highbrow has helicopter blade a blue foot and a wing aswmbly that looks like [sort of] what you described as a gun arm.

    Ahh yes I see where you are going with that. IDW has been pretty spot on when it comes to the gun designs of the bots to there previous versions, does the gun look familiar in any way?

    Aside from those I already mention I can only think of ether Ironhide with a nosel in his arm or Trailbreaker but nether has a bule foot.

    But like I said it could be a different bot then belongs to the foot.

    Ultramagnus also has a gun tip that looks simular but the rest of the gun does not march.

    Topspinn and Twintwist have some funny looking guns and Topspin has a blue foot.

    Skids also has a simular looking gun and I think a blue or black foot.

    It was just reported that Doubledealer and Sideswipe are the other two central characters of the Revelation saga. Dealer was seen in the Hotrod Spotlight so they can expand a bit there, it's awesome to see Sideswipe back though, I hope they keep that brash edge he had in the Galvatron Spotlight. :up:

    Yeah, I was a little worried that the main story's continuity wish abrubtly end and we will be given just loads of mini series with no relation, glad to hear there will be follow ups :up:

    Essential reading:

    I just found out that IDW have begun to re-release the entire original US Marvel G1 Transformers comics in TPB. I went down to my local comic book shop today and found it, I couldn't believe it. Each volume comes with 16 issues all in order, not to be mistaken by the Transformers: Generations releases, which is the same original series but are extracts of some of the best issues, this new release is "everything all in order". If you are interested in the original G1 series but never read it and would like to see what made this series so kick arse then I implore you to buy this. A lot of new fans have come into the fold due to the live action movie and may not understand the history of TF's, or may not understand why so many of the fanboys like myself whom were upset with what Bay did with it. This is the perfect oppotunity to get one of the greatest comic book series of all time. Although I already know most of the stories and have read a few, I never actually owned the US series, here in Australia we got the G1 UK series which spawned off of the US one, so as you can imagine I am quite stoked that after all these years I can finally start to own the entire US series.

    The US series had 80 issues, so if they continue to release each volume with 16 issues in each then that would make up a total of 5 volumes, and at $19.99 each that is great value. It will be interesting to see if IDW decides to re-release the UK series after they have finished with this one, it had a total of 332 issues so it's a pretty large release if they do. :trans:

    If they include the Headmaster mini and the cross-over GI Joe mini then they could end up needing an other volume.

    Depending on how the US release goes they could re-release everything up to and including Generation 2.

    They were pretty straight forward comics, most of the other Dreamwave re-release didn't have to many alterations, however they were part of a larger story. I only wish that the "War Within" series continued, man that was an awesome series.

    I dont think any of the "Dreamwave" writting thats been re-printed by IDW had been altered at all.The Dreamwave continuity doesnt really have any bearing on IDW's TF history even thou they may continue it some day.

    But the "Bio books" present a unique question.Most of DW's bio's were pretty generic in nature.....meaning that the bios could fit into any TF universe but there were a few that were pretty DW specific not to mention the non-character entries.

    I'm wondering if IDW intends for the new Bio TPB to be used as in refrance to its characters or just plain re-prints of DW's stuff.

    I think IDW added a couple of extra pages at the end of volume 1 of the Generation 1 series. I own the original prints of the first volume as individual issues and issue 6 is missing the last 2 pages to connect it with Volume two, I found this out after I took a look at the reprint by IDW's Volume 1 TPB of Gen 1. Other then that I'm not sure if anything else was altered by IDW in any of the other series.


    I'm pretty sure its a direct reprint, but after reading the original news post it seems that IDW have not confirmed this yet, apparently Amazon has the release listed, so I'm not sure what to make of this, rumor perhaps?

    If you can ether share some scans or at least give some details on the Added info I would be in your debt..


    I heard they might do that.To be honest I'm not surprised that they did.That small section never really "jived" with the start of volume 2....at least not in my opinion.

    I dont think anything else was but I wasnt awaer of the changes you just mention.....I have all the original prints, multi covers,2nd and 3rd prints of each issue as well as the TPB's that were released by DW before they went under so I saw no sence on spending more money on the same product.


    I'm not sure what I want out of this news.

    I would like IDW to do their own Bio book that deals with the IDW's universe but at the same time I would like to have a handier volume of DW's bio's on hand.

    Guess I'm lost.

    Have read Generations Vol.1 and 'The Greatest Battle's Of Optimus Prime and Megatron' so far and have 'Target 2006' with Galvatron travelling back in time and 'Spotlight Vol. 2' waiting to be read and am really enjoying the comics so far.

    Anymore recommendations would be welcome, but for some reason in the UK i cant get hold of the more modern one's like Escalation, etc. I even went to Australia for 2 two weeks this month and they didnt have them either! Any recommendations on getting the more modern one's!

    ^^^^


    I'd highly recommend you getting the main series, Infiltration, Escalation, and Devastation. They are a great read and IDW will continue with this "ation" series with for quite some time, so it's best to try and catch up on it.

    I have been trying to get a hold of them for ages but the stores here dont seem to have them. I know the last fight in 'The Greatest Battle's Of Optimus Prime And Megatron was from Devestation, and it does indeed look awesome. I want to get my hands on Spotlight Vol.1 before i read Vol.2 also. Just for the Shockwave Spotlight!

    Sounds really cool, i'm sorry i didnt get the 'Megatron:Origin' book i saw in Australia now as well.
