Echoes of The Movie on that MTMTE cover.
And that white cover is the best looking TF versus GI Joe cover yet!

Okay so far I've got Huffer, Highbrow, Siren, Cyclonus, Nightbeat, Megatron, Chromedome, Tailgate, Nautica, Ratchet (yay!), Skids, Getaway, Hound, Hoist, Dipstick, but does anyone know who the first guy is?
Also anyone think this might be the one where Dipstick buys it?

Does it look like he's got a beast mode?

Wow loving these covers.

All looks so cool.

Doing a bit of research (as I do) the only one I can think it could be is Pincher as he has a scorpion type altmode who is on the Lost Light.

However he does seem to be a minor character to be on a front cover with these guys so not sure.

EDIT. As this is #31??? maybe we havent seen him yet or will be picked up between issues 28 and this one. James did say we would see new additions, he could be one.

There's a real lack of Rodimus or Magnus on that cover.

I dont really see how either would enjoy being on the LL with Megatron?

Rodimus was the captain, it was his quest (look how angry he got when he found out that Thunderclash was on the quest too and to have Megatron of all bots now leading would be beyond galling.

Magnus is well Magnus. Megatron his ultimate enemy.

It could be a case that the writers wont want all three on board together. It could be a case of two many chiefs not enough indians and they would end up cancelling each other out.

Hmm, maybe Rodimus decided to go after Drift instead? (He did mention not having heard from him in a while in DC.) The scene the previous cover seems to hint at - Rodimus passing command of the Lost Light over to Megatron - might indicate he didn't stay around.

It's not like I'm surprised at neither being on there - I can see why both would leave. But remember, the solitications etc were very cagey when Dark Cybertron was still being published, especially given that both characters were thrown into the death stakes. These are the first post-DC solicits, and they again don't mention them, which seems confirmation that both are elsewhere.

But where, is the question? Rodimus I can see going off to find Drift. But Magnus, his whole reason for going was that he felt the returned NAILs didn't want them around, and he quit his other gig in favour of Fortress Maximus. So what is he doing, I wonder?

Was just going to say that.

They both go after Drift. Makes a degree of sense.

It's interesting because when the series started, there were two people Ultra Magnus specifically didn't trust: Cyclonus and Drift. And both of them ended up showing noble sides of themselves: Cyclonus, in risking his life for Tailgate, and Drift, taking the blame for Overlord in Rodimus' stead (sacrificing everything he'd worked for in regards to winning the Autobots' trust).

It really will be interesting to see where all three bots (Megatron, Ultra Magnus and Rodimus) fit in the coming season of MTMTE.
