IDW presents Women of TF Panel

New Series
Transformers Till all are One

End windblade & set on Cybertron, return of characters, and return on one iconic city. March 2016

How did they enter the world or return to Transformers?
Watch old series, Read the old material.

WIth new series such as Windblade there was no existing stories so had to create that universe

The Windblade series was a gateway for new fans to get into the TF universe

The Inspiration
Different race types with different body types, character designs, different cities.

Character bodies should reflect what they do as a character, and where they came from

Victorian just added to comic and toys and was an opportunity to expand the universe

Most brands are targeted to a specific gender, but they try to get in 10% of other genders, so they can appear in other universes

Windblade had a small cast so the story can focust on Windblade

Why emphasis gender in TF?
They have to make them related to humans too, so genders help with that.
Big debate in community, they are aliens so what does gender mean to them? It is hard to relate them to an "IT" and easier to relate to them as a "HE" or "SHE" representation

Victorion will flow into different things

A new female decepticon will be in the future

What do you think about fans asking the gender to be female?
Originally with windblade it was part what fans were asking for and also Victorion
Mostly dads have been asking for female TFs to get their daughters involved.

Victorian is a giant combiner, tall, powerful, with many different personality so it is natural that there is not always one side to one person.

What are favorite parts of working on comics?
Coming up with composition, inking is challenging, team is fantastic, fan feedback encouraging, would like more sleep but worth it.

It is hard to get diverity in a brand, but TF has a lot more now compared to other brands, John Barber took a chance on the ladies doing the comics.

Beast Wars issue & designs by Corin: there will be Cheetor, Dinobot, Mantaray, Sonar, Air Razor, Tigatron and a big inspiration was Black Arachnia other animals in Beast Wars will be a water buffalo and dragonfly.

When Black Arachnia comes back, she will not be part of a faction.

When Youu get more female characters you will get more relationships such as Ironhide & Chromia, Air Razor & Tigatron

Corin saw Jurassic World before she saw the script, so there will be slight changes in their looks because why would they look so organic on an alien planet.

Bringing back Micromaster Combiners as seen at the end of Windblade.

More Generations News
Multiple members of the 2005 forums are reporting ToysRUs sightings of Power of the Primes Prime Master Wave 1 figures! This assortment includes Skullgrin(Liege Maximo), Cloudburst(Micronus), and Metalhawk(Vector Prime), and ship in a case of 12 with 4 each, so hopefully they should be plentiful when you find them. Keep reading for the statement!
You may recall we recently brought you the retail stock images for Moonracer. Tonight we have the remaining figures from the same Deluxe Wave 2 assortment, consisting of Blackwing, Rippersnapper, and the Dinobots Snarl and Sludge. Each features the typical three robot, alt mode, and package shots, but they give us our best looks so far at these yet-upcoming releases. Click through to see them all below!
It's time to bring you some new gallery content, because the camera has been kind this night. Spending some time with Power of The Primes right now, we're kicking off with a detailed look at Prime Master Micronus, with Cloudburst Decoy Suit. Or Pretender Cloudburst with a Micronus backpack, or however you want to rationalize what Prime Masters are. Either way, our Titan Master successors are here, and you can find the full gallery for the first of them just below, with over 65 images. Click through and check it out!
With the USA sightings rolling out on the Transformers Power of the Primes Voyager Star scream figures - Check the Wave Tracker to find yours. It only seems fitting to have a look at what fans are liking about the latest and maybe greatest Generation 1 style edition of this classic character. Not to forget, there will very likely be more of this mold coming our way in the seeker characters.
UPDATED with a NY Sighting from Twitter user @cogmanhotrod! Multiple members of the 2005 Forums are reporting that the Power of the Primes Wave 1 Voyagers are now arriving in Minnesota ToysRUs stores! The Voyagers were generally lagging behind the other assortments in US markets, making this the first chance for fans to assemble 2/3rds of a Volcanicus and of whatever Starscream's combiner name is. Hopefully we'll know soon, but in the meantime, click through for a link to the messages!
