First Strike will launch in August with two self-titled issues kicking off the story. The event is planned for three months, and the First Strike title itself will have six issues - the specifics of tie ins from other titles seem not to be finalized or revealed at this time. Solicits for the first two issues as well as cover samples were provided. Spoilers may apply for the overall IDW TF-And-Friends universe, so be warned!

So you never even saw Titans Return Wave 5 or 6. And you missed out on your $50 Trypticon at Ollie's. And you're fully convinced that Power of the Primes Wave 2 is an urban legend (despite owning 3 of the Deluxes and all the Legends) and that Wave 3 is simply a mass-hallucination. Have you considered... stopping? If not stopping outright, stopping seriously collecting, and being emotionally invested in whether or not you get a given toy. RAC has, and he decided that stressing over his toy collection is a problem he no longer needs. Keep reading to see the factors that led him to this point.
We recently showed you some early in hand looks at the Titan Class Predaking set from GenmonTCracker's twitter account. As a followup, Genmon's Facebook page now contains many more "studio" style shots of the toys, both as individual Predacons and in the combined form of Predaking. The Predaking photos show the combiner looking very flexible, even doing - you guessed it - the Iron Man three-point-landing pose. And if you think the individual Predacons might be looking just a bit better ...well, that's probably just because the dark background helps the combiner thighs fade out of sight a bit. Check out all the photos in the gallery below.
Just in via Previews World, we have the latest on upcoming Transformers comics from IDW heading to shops and digital this August. The end of the universe proceeds in its own good time between issues 3 and 4 of the Unicron miniseries, with its echoes felt in issue 23 of Optimus Prime, all while Lost Light tends to its own final affairs in its own issue 23. In the movie world, the third issue of the Bumblebee prequel story, plus a separate trade paperback featuring a Bumblebee of a completely different flavor! Cover previews and blurbs can all be found below...
The Prime Masters were meant to represent the Thirteen Primes that are part of (at least one) creation mythology for the Transformers. But even as far back as last year's infamous giant leak that Hasbro assures us never actually happened, it was clear that some were missing from the planned lineup. In an image whose original source is fuzzy at best, we have what looks like part of the paperwork from Titan Class Predaking that shows the emblem forms of all 12 (the thirteenth being represented in the toyline by the Matrix) hinting that the ones currently missing from any known assortment could still happen. Check out the image below!
Though you could hardly call it the Optimal Situation, Ron Perlman as Optimus Primal would seem to be the focus of this week's episode of Power of the Primes! Again, we're not keeping up on this one... but if you'd like to, keep reading for a link to the go90 service where the show is viewable in North America.
