Are the Combaticons a gestalt in this continuity as well? Check out the model sheet for War Within Bruticus, and see the prophecy of the Gestalt Battle in Wrath of the Ages #4.

See more War Within Combaticons:

A different take on his usual helicopter mode.
Yottatron1024's avatar
That's definitely a unique take on his vehicle mode. ;)

We have to thank Don Figueroa for that!

Uhhhh, why Autobot Symbol?
Tf-SeedsOfDeception's avatar
It's an image from the Golden Age, before the war :)
Factions did not exist and the Symbol was the Cybertronian Icon.
Metroplex-10's avatar
Okay, One question, think you can draw him without the other stuff? because I would like to use him as a profile picture
Tf-SeedsOfDeception's avatar
That could be difficult...we are overwhelmed with activities :)
Metroplex-10's avatar
its okay, I can wait, perfection must no be pushed
Metroplex-10's avatar
Tf-SeedsOfDeception's avatar
And just wait to see what we have in store for Metroplex ;)
Metroplex-10's avatar
You're welcome :), but seriously, this could make for a perfect design of Blast Off in the War For Cybertron sequel

I wish they had hired Don Figueroa for these redesigns: almost all our art is based on his previous works.
Metroplex-10's avatar
I think you make better drawings than Don Figueroa
Tf-SeedsOfDeception's avatar
Thanks, but we're not worthy!
For the profiles, all credit that goes to :iconi-sithlord:

Isn't Vortex a Decepticon? @.@
Tf-SeedsOfDeception's avatar
He will be, when the Civil War begins.
This is a Golden Age tech specs file, and concepts like Factions are unknown :)
The Autobot symbol is used by military and High Offices, but they all are just Cybertronians.
abarai-san's avatar
Ohh right :) thanks!

Tf-SeedsOfDeception's avatar
