Generation 1
New Transformers Comic

By Jack on Wednesday, December 12, 2001



New Transformers comics are here! Dreamwave Productions of Canada, announces that they have licensed the rights from Hasbro to produce a new Transformers comic and other products. Under the aggreement, Dreamwave will produce comics, posters, calendars and other Transformers themed merchandise.

The interest in the original Transforners is on the rise with the success of Robots in Disguse. Recently beating out out Pokemon in the November sweeps, there is clearly an expanding market for show merchandise beyond the regular toys lines. Mass produced show related products have not been readily available since the Generation 1 and 2 series. So this is indeed welcome news for Transformers fans everywhere.

The special part of this announcement is there will be a new line of Transformers comic books. No authors or plans for a story line have been revealed at this time. However, we do know that Dreamwave will be doing the artwork for the new publications and products. Click on the images for detailed examples of work by Deamwave artist Pat Lee.

Multiple news sources are confirming that Leonard Nimoy, best known as Star Trek's Mr. Spock but also a repeated presence in Transformers media, has died of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease at the age of 83. An actor, director, photographer, and much more, Mr. Nimoy was in all things he chose to do an artist, first and foremost, who gave his work the attention and forethought it deserved. He will be missed, and the thoughts of the TFormers staff go out to Mr. Nimoy's family.
...namely: What? The Facebook group Cybertron Phillipines has posted an image of the Triple Changers set showing the G1 Blitzwing and Astrotrain molds with new decos. Blitzwing's purple now skews far more magenta, and Astrotrain has grown some large patches of bright red. You'd be tempted to write these off as early test shots in random plastic colors... except there they are on the boxart in the same color schemes. It'll definitely be interesting to see more pictures of these two, but for now keep reading to see what we've got!
