Botcon 2012 Comic Panel

ApKLSg5CMAICgYL

Botcon have tweeted a panel of art from this year’s comic. In this panel we see a squad of Autobots under the leadership of Metalhawk ready for battle – including such classic characters as Wheeljack, Tracks, Jazz, Warpath and Scoop (a 1988 Targetmaster!), all in the style of their Generation 1 toys / models. Check it out here.

    I hope that's not a hint at a Cybertron Landmine repaint (again).

    Isn't it kind of ironic given this year's theme is supposed to be Shattered Glass vs Classics-verse, we're getting non-Classics versions of Jazz, Wheeljack, Warpath and Tracks in the comic

    Yay for Double Targetmasters.

    Love to see less used guys like that get some spotlight.


    -ZacWilliam, as long as they aren't there just for body count of course.

    Well, I think the character choice is pretty obviously quite deliberate - good odds on them getting blown up in the course of the story and rebuilt in their RTS/Generations bodies.

    Very interesting. Wonder if perhaps like above said, they will be redone into their ClassicRTS bodies after some event..

    i hope so, but even if they aren't, it's still cool to see those characters...

    Wait a minute.... ain't that Marlboor Wheeljack?

    Anyhow shame they didn't put the red on Metalhawk's fin like it was rumored.
