SDCC 2015 Transformers Convention News Transformers Devastator Week!
More Generation 1 News
52Toys caught sight of another SD-style Transformers product from Fewture. Their ES Gokin series will be bringing out a Fortress Maximus figure in the near future, but that's not the only thing to note here. On a display card behind Max is a silhouette that bears a distinct resemblance to Victory leader Star Saber, giving a good pointer of what might be next up after Fortress Maximus has come himself. Keep reading to check out the photos!
Finally hitting shops next week, we have the short preview for Transformers vs GI Joe issue 8, fresh off iTunes. Originally intended for release in April, the issue's publication was a bullet point at IDW's panel during SDCC earlier this month. Has it been worth the wait? Find out early next week when we post our review of the issue before it goes on sale next Wednesday. Keep reading for the pages and the very brief teaser text.

Rounding out the Constructicons for Devastator Week is Long Haul, the team's logistics expert! He hates his job, but gets it done.
