The first preview of Transformers: Lost Light
#1 is now up on iTunes! The "third season" of More Than Meets The Eye
pairs writer James Roberts with artist Jack Lawrence and is due out sometime this month. Exactly as you might expect, this three-page preview gives no indication as to how the cliffhanger from the end of The Dying Of The Light
will be resolved. But it does introduce some new characters! Keep reading to see it.
e-Hobby has posted a preorder page for their new followup exclusive to Convobat, Magna Convoy
! Magna Convoy is a recolor of 2006's oft-reused Classics Voyager Optimus Prime mold in a blue and black color scheme that resembles the cab of Diaclone Powered Convoy, AKA the original toy release of Ultra Magnus in the color scheme now given over to the Delta Magnus character. He also includes a "Matrix Sword" from the Titans Return Voyager Alpha Trion mold as well as a shield from Deluxe Mindwipe. Keep reading for his mechanically-translated bio!
Following up today's announcement of The Power of The Primes fan-choice poll, the Transformers Facebook page has posted an image revealing the nine characters who we'll be choosing from when voting opens in January. Some of the selections are unexpected, though an obvious nominee or two are still present. Sadly the image seems to confirm the currently reigning (at least in IDW) Starscream is not among the picks, which is sure to disappoint on the assumption that IDW will need to follow along with whatever choice is made. Keep reading to find out who's up for Matrix Bearer in 2017!
Reports are coming in - including from Phil Zeman, proprietor of ASM
- that Walgreens is having a 40% off Titans Return Deluxe figures - and that includes Brainstorm! That would bring the price of the figure down to $11.99, which is a steal for an exclusive figure and a pretty great one at that. Keep reading to see!
A great resource for new readers, the profiles in the back of the Revolution
miniseries have provided summaries of the state of the IDW Hasbroverse while also including some great new art. Continuing our coverage of Revolution
#5, Sara Pitre-Durocher has posted her artwork for the Windblade profile in this issue! Keep reading to check it out!
The conclusion to IDW's Revolution
epic is out at comic stores today, and one of the highlights for me was Guido Guidi's fantastic alternate cover showing G2 Sideswipe paired with a very Spawn
-esque Snake Eyes. Guido has shared the image to Twitter, so now you can see for yourself. Keep reading to see the cover, mirrored here for your convenience!
Following the massive worldwide interest in Transformers: Combiner Wars, Machinima, the first Many2Many programming service focused on fandom and gamer culture, and Hasbro, Inc., a global play and entertainment company, announced today that they will join forces to develop Titans Return and Power of the Primes, the final two installments of the animated Prime Wars trilogy.
The Hollywood Reporter has gotten the scoop on the last leg of the Prime Wars Trilogy: the title is officially Power Of The Primes.
Furthermore, the article reveals that Machinima will be continuing on from their Combiner Wars
miniseries with Titans Return
and Power Of The Primes.

We're getting reports that Titans Return Legends class Wave 3 is preparing to ship from major online retailers! This wave takes a break from cassette-phone-bots and gives us a couple of long-awaited updates - plus a new Bumblebee! What do we know, and what can we expect from these new figures? Keep reading to find out!
Baron Karza has merged with the Dire Wraiths! Can the combined efforts of the Autobots, MASK, GI Joe, Action Man, and the Micronauts bring him down? Maybe, if they stop fighting amongst themselves first. Revolution Chapter Five: Valley Forge
is written by John Barber and Cullen Bunn, with art by Fico Ossio and colors by Sebastian Cheng. Click here to continue to the review!
We've got the full-length preview of the final chapter in Revolution,
the first chapter in the IDW Hasbro Shared Universe! Optimus Prime and his Autobots (and friends!) take on the fusion of Baron Karza and the Dire Wraiths, sworn enemies of the Micronauts and ROM: Spaceknight. Keep reading to see!
Rounding out the wave for us today is Sawback. This is an adaptation of Lione, a toy-only character from The Headmasters
line in Japan which was a lion robot that turned in to a spare Headmaster. Titan Master Sawback is a humanoid little robot, but comes with a lion vehicle with a surprisingly effective shield mode, and charmingly goofy vehicle form. Between that and the effectiveness of the Titan Master integration in the animal mode, Sawback feels like the strongest whole package of the wave. We have over 100 photos of it, so keep reading to see our full gallery below!
Our third participant in today's mini-marathon of Titans Return galleries is Titan Master Fangry. This emulates the wolf-bat monster form of the original toy, and adds a dragon for good measure! There's a gun mode as well, but there's really nothing good about that. You can see all of this, plus of course the Titan Master in use as an auxiliary head in our gallery of nearly 100 photos! Keep reading to see that below, and of course keep watching for the conclusion of the Titan Master wave 3 galleries - we've saved the best for last!
Wave 3 of the Titan Masters features one unmodified redeco of an earlier toy. Overboard is a straight recolor of Crashbash from the first wave, so there's not anything new to be seen here aside from the colors. It should be noted that this use of the mold has a somewhat gummy feeling around the joints and hinges. Whether that be mold fatigue or a quirk of the plastic in this color is unclear. Between that and the lack of new parts, you may consider skipping this figure. To help you with that decision, click through and have a look through our gallery of 85 photos of Titan Master Overboard!
Like Clobber before it, we have in wave 3 a Dinobot by any other name. The Swoop-inspired Ptero focuses almost its entire energy on doing the pterosaur thing, much to the detriment of the vehicle and weapon modes. In this gallery of more than 80 photos, you can see for yourself how little the vehicle component actually transforms. But if you need a Swoop-looking robot head to attach to some body, Ptero does a fairly good job on that front! Click through now to see the full gallery below.
