Just in are the Transformers February 2016 Comic Book Solicitations from IDW Publishing. There is plenty in the queue for 2017 with new issues for Lost Light, Till All Are One, Revolution, the Annual and much more. Read on for the full preview summaries and covers.
Just in by way of Newsarama, we have a preview of TRANSFORMERS: TILL ALL ARE ONE #5. REVOLUTION is over but the danger isn’t over! A wave of undead TITANS threatens CYBERTRON! STARSCREAM will need more than secret police to stop the oncoming horde, but our Fearless Leader finds himself short on friends and firepower. Who can be called upon—and why aren’t they stepping up to the plate?
Dengeki Hobby has posted images of a new line of figures titled "Transformers Bitfig," due out in Late December. The assortment of inexpensive candy toys, styled similarly to Bandai's 66Action line, is specifically titled "Part 1," so obviously there are plans for more of these at some point in the future. But the first wave goes with a lot of the big names: Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, and Jazz. If Bumblebee's not in Part 2 I'll be shocked. Keep reading for more info on the figures as well as the difference between "deformation style" and "super deformed"!
The East Point City shopping center in Hang Hau, Tseung Kwan O, New Territories, Hong Kong is currently featuring an excellent Transformers exhibit.

Transformers At The Moon has another collection of never before heard deleted audio content from the G1 cartoon. "Roll For It" is the next entry, coming in at about 8 minutes of material. No fully new scenes are contained, but there's a fair bit of expansion present, a small portion of which with audio issues, which are speculated as being a possible reason for those lines being cut. The full transcript is quite lengthy and was published separately from the Youtube video. We've copied that in the full post below for ease of viewing, so click through and enjoy! And thanks once again to Transformers At The Moon for this great piece of history!
