Mysterians faux cover

So I was having a little fun making up fake covers for the current IDW Transformers universe, and after Chris McFeely's video about the Mysterians and their connections to the original four Minibots of Windcharger, Brawn, Gears and Huffer, I had the idea of these four being employed by Maccadam to basically keep the really WIERD stuff on Cybertron quiet. I mean, Prime and Megatron is already dealing with the war... They don't need to be dealing with Dwellers and Transorganics and Demons other oddball monsters lurking beneath Cybertron. Think of them like the Transformers Doom Patrol. So he picked four relatively unknown guys who wouldn't stand out... And are easily replaced. (Maybe when they disappear for four million years and needs replacements in the shape of Pipes, Swerve, Outback and Tailgate?)

So yeah, I did the cover. It was a lot of fun to do. And I kinda wish I was doing this as a comic.

I see the confusion, but nope it was a creature discovered in Season 3 of the 80s transformers... basically 1 of a number of "failed" cybernetic bio-weapons grown by the Quintesson's prior to there dealings with the Transformers.

Yep, Transformers S3E18 The Dweller in the Depths. The plot has a lot to do with that creature & its "kin" which are all different 1 off failed weapons...For the characters its a horror movie (think Alien)
