They are Rhinox, Prowl, and Megatron, all Transcendent Technomorphs.

Rhinox has been described in text before, but never seen.

(Also, non-TT Polar Claw is in the background once.)

His head design and shoulder-pipes would strongly indicate some influence from BotCon 2006 Rhinox in his design, too.

I say, Classics, Shattered Glass, Transtech, even Dawn of Futures Past, this is turning into a super-incestuous BotCon/Club affair.

Interesting... was AT&P the one that was involved with the Go-Bots reality issues?


-ZacWilliam, found the Go-Bot storyline the most interesting in the club stuff so far, so I keep watching and hoping for its return...

Holy scrap, Beamer art!

Yeah, it was one of the universes, along with the GoBots universe, that the Classicverse was drawing upon in order to survive.

Yeah. The Classicsverse displaced it, due to some unknown machinations by Classics Megatron, and as a side effect it also interfered with the Tonka GoBots universe.

Guess it's back!

Also back: RUNT.

If I may venture a guess, "multiple phenomenon across corresponding clusters," "showing everywhere at once," seems like something super-big is happening in the multiverse.

Perhaps the Aligned Continuity Family is splitting off.

I'd love to see that addressed.

Meta-continuity(ties?) is right up my alley.


-ZacWilliam, an iceberg splitting off the multiverse is a cool crisis that's at least kinda different and original from your usual comic book multiverse Crisis.

... hey. I think all of those universal screenshots/scans are from the wiki. I see the big group screenshot I took from Cosmic Rust...

http://tfwiki.net/wi...st-BigGroup.jpg

And there's Minerva and Perceptor from Victory on page 1, and LioConvoy and Primal from the BW2 movie.. a BlackZarak headshot, Armada Hot Shot, RID Prime (twice?), Robot Masters CGI Convoy... I'm not sure who the cowering Decepticon is on page 2/panel 2, though.

Prowl reminds me of the silver Alternity Convoy.

I still want to see the Alternity show up in the TransTech Universe.

This prequel comic has me excited.

I'm happy we have some new multiversal stuff. The Club's left it alone for years.

Why, yes. Yes, he is. I wonder who that's supposed to be? icon-arcee.gif

To be fair the colors seem to match that fan character (is it?) more than actual Polar Claw.


ZacWilliam, unless I'm missin a polar claw color scheme...

You're not. I was attempting to be subtle with it, and not be the guy flailing his arms around going "Look! Look! It's my guy Ursa Magnus!!!"

But apparently, it's required.
