Really cool to finally see the full thing. It's some really awesome artwork, to be sure. I really like all of the crazy seekers that are spread throughout the pic. Really great looking.

The following was my initial response to the full artwork when I first saw it. It's a little late coming, but oh well.

*ahem*

:shock: DUUUUUUUUUDE, that artwork is BEAST! Unicron versus an entire armada of Sweeps, Seekers, the Revenge, the Minnow, the stolen Quintesson ship, Cyclonus and... is that... the Victory? What ship is that in the background near the center? Anyway, keep up any attempts to try to get the entirety of this to fit into our site's background. :grin: 8-)

Y'know, looking at it again, that green-white-yellow Seeker in the bottom right looks like it could be Leozack. Way too cool.

That's what I was thinking. But, I'm not gonna jump to any conclusions yet. I'll just call it a very nice homage for now.

Well, that's what I'm pretty sure it's meant to be, an homage. Seeing as the artwork, while done by an official Transformers comic book artist, is by merit pretty much high end fanart, y'know? But yeah, that's what I think it is; an homage to Leozack. Which would lead me to surmise that the guy next to him may in fact be an homage to Hellbat.

Hmm, maybe. Also makes me think of Dirge, in addition to Hellbat.

The pink one also kinda looks like Gaihawk, though the teal on him says otherwise.

Y'know, the pink-teal one is ringing a bell in my head, but I can't seem to place who it I'm thinking of. I'm going to dig around and see what I can find. I'll let you know when I figure it out.
