He has that look like "Once I am released from these shackles I will murder your faces!" or something like that.

Wouldn't it been better if they somehow 'turned him off' instead of chaining him up?

I always loved the way you color robots with your shading, sir. I did notice how over the years the different ways you colored Metal Sonic and I say your current output is fantastically fresh and vibrant. 
:iconevanstanley:'s lineart is shockingly unbelievable, in a good jaw-dropping way of course. This looks so on model that I could have sworn it was drawn by Patrick Spaziante, due to his tendency to draw Sonic characters like in official Sega artwork. I was proven wrong and I must say, it's so amazing to see her improve over the years.
Both of you are really big inspirations and it puts a big smile on my face knowing you two still continue to make stellar work in Sonic comics, even to this day.
I look forward to more posts you'll drop in the future, Mr. Herms. :D

Have to wonder if Metal will go back to being less chatty in his default form again.

This cover reminds me of issue 175 cover with Sonic himself being in chains (which is also one of my favorite issues of Sonic the Hedgehog)
