We've got the latest solicitations from IDW for Transformers titles coming up this December! Due out at the end of the year are issues 36 of both More Than Meets The Eye and The Transformers
, formerly Robots in Disguise, as well as issue 5 of Transformers vs GI Joe, issue 2 of Drift: Empire of Stone, and the first collection volume of Transformers vs GI Joe, and volume 6 of More Than Meets The Eye. Check out the blurbs and cover previews below!
The mystery of the ruined Lost Light is solved! But when a way is found to restore things to normal, what will be the price to bring everything back? "The Road Not Taken", More Than Meets The Eye 33, written by James Roberts, pencils by Alex Milne, with inks by Brian Schearer and John Wycough, and colors by Joana Lafuente. Read the full review!
IDW has provided the full preview for this month's issue of More Than Meets The Eye. This one is unusually spoily as to the nature of what's been going on during this storyline, so please be aware before clicking through to read these preview pages if you want to wait and have the mystery revealed when the full issue hits shops this Wednesday!
Finally, Previews has lineart-stage pages from the first issue of the Angry Birds/Transformers crossover miniseries. Not as far along as the other early looks, this still shows a taste of what the visual end of this book is about, presumably from the portion of the book not illustrated by Livio Ramondelli. Keep reading to see all three pages.
Previews has been given three pages from the first issue of the upcoming Drift focused miniseries, Empire of Stone. Much like the Transformers 35 preview, no dialogue has been added to this, letting you see the full page art in an otherwise finished, colored state. If you've been looking for the return of Drift since his wrongful dismissal from the Lost Light last year, this may be the title for you when it ships later this year!
The book formerly subtitled Robots in Disguise is set to become simply The Transformers, and so we have via a Previews feature article three pages from the upcoming issue 35 which, while having no dialogue added yet, show an operation over Earth seemingly overseen by Prowl. This issue is due to hit in mid-November, so we still have a while before proper previews hit, but for now enjoy the clean art!
Did you ever look at Generations Jetfire and think to yourself, "that toy doesn't have nearly enough chrome on it"? Well, The Malaysia branch of Hasbro Asia would seem to agree, as Planet Iacon has shared an image of a contest flyer to win a lucky draw version of the toy coated in silver chrome ...in addition to all the typically red chromed elements. Yes, now three lucky Malaysian fans could have the chance to win a Jetfire covered entirely in chrome! Check out the full size image below!
Sarah Stone has earned a lot of attention lately with her beautiful art style that many were introduced to by her work on the Windblade miniseries. Since then she's done alternate covers for many other issues. Today she's posted a step-by-step of her process, using the anniversary incentive cover from MTMTE 33 as an example. Keep reading to see the preview images along with Sarah's introduction and link back to her tumblr blog post!
Turned off by the chromed parts of Generations Jetfire? If you don't want to pay extra for a chrome-free Takara release, you may not have to resign yourself to just living with it. Cheetimus of Cheets' Tweaks has posted a video showing an easy and relatively safe method to remove vac metal chrome from plastic using two commonly available chemical products, first removing the clear red paint layer, then dissolving the chrome itself until bare plastic is all that's left. Check out the video embedded below!
Facebook has given us an early gift and posted the 30th anniversary alternate cover for MTMTE 33 - due to hit shops next Wednesday! - on their Facebook page. This cover features art by Sarah Stone and depicts Tarn hovering over Fulcrum as liquid energon drips from his face. This scene is Sarah's homage to "season 1" of MTMTE, specifically calling back to the "Scavengers" two-parter that comprised issues 7 and 8 of the title. ...and which may very well tie in to the issue this cover is attached to. Check it out below, and check back here next week where we'll bring you the first review of issue 33!
Thanks again to Ebay seller Lena88a we we now have images of Transformers Cloud TFC-D02 Starscream action figure that will be offered by Takara Tomy in Japan. Get a look at the robot mode of this figure that is based on the Generations Voyager Blitzwing figure mold. Read on to see the in-hand images of the figure after the jump.
Brought to you by the same auctioneer who is selling Generations Chromia,
we now have images of Transformers Cloud Shockwave, and the TakaraTomy Legends release of the Voyager-class Whirl he's based on. (Both slightly mistransformed.) Shockwhirl is looking pretty nice, all told, and if those are tampographs and not stickers on Legends Whirl, that's certainly a tick in its favor. Keep reading to see photos!
The iTunes store has updated with the first preview for Robots in Disguise 33, due to hit shops on September 24th, and the quick three pages treat us to the return of a familiar face who's been absent from the series for quite a long time now. Just after the preview went live, Sarah Stone who is contributing to the art for this issue posted clean versions of the panels seen in the preview, without text or other visual effects. We've mirrored both the preview and the clean pages, so keep reading to see them!
Due to start arriving in collectors' hands very soon from orders placed at Hasbro Toy Shop, we have a final few preview in-hand images for Deluxe Nightbeat and Jhiaxus, from Ebay seller lena81822. recolored and remolded -extensively in Jhiaxus' case - from earlier Generations figures, these figures help fill the assortment led by Windblade. The entire set should be reaching other US-based retailers soon, so in the meantime check out the images mirrored below!
Ebay seller lena81822 has come up with the upcoming TakaraTomy release of Generations Sky-Byte, sporting some deco changes relative to its already released Hasbro counterpart, notably going for an appearance that makes the robot mode a bit more visually faithful to the original toy and media representations. This figure isn't due to ship until December, so check out these mirrored images to get an idea of what to expect at the end of the year!
