With the possible exception of Bludgeon and Thunderwing, favorites of Transformers comic scribe Simon Furman who have made appearances in multiple generations, the most heavily featured of Pretenders was the 1988 Decepticon, SKULLGRIN.  Complete with toy photo-gallery, character/other appearances text info, comic images and jump box links, you'll find his all new character page has been uploaded and is available for viewing.  Enjoy!

Perc, why haven't you put up any pics of the guys from the Stormbringer comics? Most of the pretenders appeared in that seies and were an interesting mesh of their shells and robot forms.

Oh, I loved this guy as Dauros! Always arguing with Blood over who was the boss of the three Pretenders, and it was cool how his tank mode could burrow into the ground.

I never really understood why his U.S. comic version had his horns going out to the side instead of down and then up.

Oh, PLEASE let the next one be Submarauder (Gilmer)!

Also Perceptor, did you receive my email regardng the Metalhawk info?

I wonder what would have happened if Skullgrin kept his Hollywood career? That would make a good issue of Marvel's "What If?" series, where had he gone further he would have won at the Saturn Awards and gotten photographed with the other big robots: Gort, Robby, the Lost In Space robot, and so many others.

I guess the truthful answer is that I think of IDW stuff as a universe all to itself. Other than Jetfire, not even the Classics toys care featured in this definitively alternate reality universe. Plus scanning images from yet another comic series is a major pain in the neck. Plus, they're not really even shown with their pretender shells...

In fairness, I must admit I include Animated images, because we have easy access to the images and because I really dig Animated and want to promote it (and any possible connection to the rest of Transformers continuity, any way that I can.
