The Ark Addendum - Rumble's Transform and Cheetor's Badge

Well, that was exciting.  My first work published in comic form.  Transformers Timelines #6, with The AllSpark Almanac Addendum, out last week.  If your local comic store doesn't have one, you can order it from the Transformers Collectors' Club.  And don't forget, if you're in the SoCal area, huge TF signing on 12/10 at Emerald Knights in Burbank.  Lots of cool folks from IDW and TF Prime, plus Marty Isenberg, Bill Forster, and myself, will be in attendance. 

Already the intrepid Chris McFeely has published his Annotations from the same.  He did a pretty good job, but so far he hasn't cracked my C.O.C. code.  Will he prevail?  Only time will tell.  Here's something that he mostly got correct... at least what he was able to make out.  Look familiar?  Hint, hint!  We had fun making that, especially the seal. (BTW, McFeely, that's not a GPDC...)

But it's a new week, and that means that it's time for another Ark Addendum!  I figured I'd keep up the trend set last week and continue with some cassette transformations.  Last week was Ravage, so this week I'm doing Rumble.  Once again, this one comes from More than Meets the Eye, and is nicely dramatic.  It was a bit hard getting it all on the page, mostly because he went from a square to a horizontal rectangle to a vertical rectangle, but I managed.  Hope you enjoy one of my better unpublished pieces.

If I'm not mistaken, the exact animated version of this was used twice on the show. :)

BTW Jim, does Trailbreaker really has broken helmet on the model sheet (left side's drawn as if a piece was broken off) or is it an error of some sort?

The model shown in The Complete Ark (and also places like The Transformers Universe / Who's Who) is indeed the actual model. However, I think that's just funny perspective. You can see from his head shots that his head is symmetrical.

Dynamic. Anyone who's seen the show from the beginning will remember this one.

Hoping you may have more?
