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.

Newsarama has published the full preview for the final issue of the First Strike miniseries. While this issue hits shops next Wednesday, we will still be getting a handful of tie-in titles coming out for a bit - and of course there's always the post-crossover-aftermath-restructuring to look forward to! War for the Core! Deep within Cybertron, the ultimate weapon to kill all Transformers is about to be activated! Meanwhile, Elita One plans to stop the weapon—by killing every human on Cybertron! Either way, looks like some species on Cybertron is going down unless Optimus Prime and Scarlett can save the day… Keep reading to see the preview pages!
You probably never thought you wanted a combiner version of Revenge of The Fallen Jetfire. But you would be wrong, and talented customizer @ChromeTyranno is here to demonstrate that! Starting with a Combiner Wars Cyclonus and incorporating parts from the Uranos unofficial Superion to help remodel it as a Blackbird, the end result is an impressively on-target looking interpretation of one of the few positively-remembered elements of ROTF - and it even has a movie Optimus torso mode! We have several exclusive photos of this project to share, click through to get a good look now!
Just to be entirely clear, as of the time of writing they are not in stock for purchase. But, Walgreens has added a listing page to their website for the exclusive two pack of Cloudraker and Wingspan, bringing the completion of Hasbro's Clone offerings that much closer. Canada has already seen these hit retail in some capacity, in their case via EB Games - though still with the Walgreens sticker on the packaging. This move puts the Clones on track to start hitting around the same time Brainstorm did last year. Keep reading for a link to the page!


With Optimus Prime trapped on Cybertron, the Autobots track down their missing friend, Jazz—and find themselves under fire from humans armed with Cybertronian weapons! Expected in shops Wednesday, November 1, 2017. Keep reading to see the preview!
Following on from our article describing a behind the scenes video introduced by FJ DeSanto and Adam Beechen that was published through the go90 platform, we now have a Facebook video version of that to bring you which can be viewed globally. In the video you'll see a quick sample of animation from the show, including dialogue by Wil Wheaton as Perceptor, plus some recording booth clips of other new cast additions to the web series. The video is embedded below - check it out!
