Thanks to Transformers: Dark Cybertron comic artist Phil Jimenez who has posted a new image on his twitter account @Philjimeneznyc. The post comments "What happens when Megatron and Shockwave duke it out? This cover does. Covers by @rfajardojr!" with a great image of Megatron facing off with Shockwave atop a pile of scrapped robots. We'll assume Phil's giving a nodd to Romulo Fajardo Jr who may have done the colors. See the image below for the full look.

Author Jim Sorensen has updated his blog with a post about his just release "Art of Prime" book. He's also goes on to reveal some new details about the "Transformers Legacy" book that is coming soon. Jim has let us know the book will be quite special with not only historic art, but a lot of art from products that never used or released before. He also lets us know they have some holes to fill in and is calling on collectors to help with getting artwork and images spanning the lines from Diaclone, to G1, and beyond.

Now, while the remaining figures on our list didn’t enjoy an animated series, they deserve mention and recognition. This week we look at Armored Insect Battalion Beetras by Takatoku – the toys that would become Deluxe Insecticons – and briefly, Toybox’s Mechabot-1 (pre-Omega Supreme) and the Astro Magnum by Toyco (Pre-Shockwave).
