Optimus prime said "at last Megatron is my trophy I will feed the rest to grimlock"

Reminds me of Batman death in the family

The pathos in this is incredible; sad commentary on the wastefulness of war...

A very sad cover. :(

Awesome, I still have a few transformer comics including the first issue.

It still makes me feel sad.

Everybody bashed AKOM for painting Prime's backpack white, yet it works so much better when IDW does it...

What's AKOM? Was it not white also in Rebirth cartoon?
GenmaNoOu's avatar
AKOM is a korean animation company. They're responsible for 3 episodes from the 2nd season, 16 from the 3rd and all 3 parts of the Rebirth. They were infamous for shoddy animation and wrong colour layouts, including giving Prime a white backpack when it's supposed to be the same red as his body.

wow I didn't know, thnx for the info. I knew something was up with Animation changing. So the other regular episodes were japanese studios?
GenmaNoOu's avatar
Yes. Toei animation, to be precise, except for Call of the Primitives (we're still not sure, but people have guessed Studio OX).

Absolutely brilliant! I love this cover. The composition is superb and after all that Prime and Megatron have been through, it's actually quite a touching image. Great stuff!

Reminds me of a painting in Arkham City "Cain and Abel - the Duality of Man"

Wow... I might get int this story line.

If you don't mind me guessing on who the shadow is... I really want to say it's Kup just because of the shape of the head. But for all I know it could be Megatron. Which would make the most sense... but then again, we'll just have to wait and see!

Very sweet cover if I do say so myself! :)

It's Megatron if you look his head is peeking over the top of primes shoulder not the side, that part at the side is a part that's on his back and everythang XD
ArwingPilot114's avatar
Ahhhhh... gotcha! XD I should have known :doh:
Still, nice pic! :D
