Generation 1
BotCon 2011 - IDW Publishing Chaos Begins Panel

Chaos staring in July

Not many writers even knew they were working on it

Andy: James Roberts is co-writing Chaos, so for those who want him, you got him.

Last Story on Earth

Art by Brendan Cahill, Costa on words

It has been a story working since Costa took over

The story focuses on Prowl and his home earth and Spike – it is a strange relationship and there will be a conflict.

Transformers #125

Title: Death of Optimus Prime
Written by John Barber and James Roberts

Art by Nick Roche!

(Not again! The audience screams)

Autocracy: The Digital-Only Transformers Title

Written by Chris Metzen and Flint Dille
Art by Livio Ramondelli

Livio and Flint were talking about writing a good story.

It ties in Chaos Theory and the fall of the previous, Golden Age, yet corrupt era on Cybertron. It really slingshots Transformers into the future and gives a real life photograph.

All pricing details will be announced soon.

Closing Arguments

Mr. Ryall says that while Andy is leaving, IDW is adding Livio, Flint, and Mike's continuing work. Fans of IDW's Transformers comics should not worry.

Question and Answer

Are Jimmy and Verity going to be back?
Andy: Jimmy is a core character, along with Punch/CounterPunch, in a comic called Legacy of Rust. It's in production, but it has not been published yet.

Any news on Transformers #81?
Chris says they hear the fans, but he cannot say anything just now. There are reasons that they cannot exist, but they are not "insurmountable."

Any comics on My Little Pony?
We believe that the My Little Pony market has already been cornered.

Will Drift be back?
Yes. Stay tuned!

Once again, Twitter user @miiakira2017 has posted an image of their Transformers-related design work. Today, it's a classic car- the specific make, if any, eludes RAC - that would have turned into a laser pistol-wielding cowboy. Though there's a slight resemblance to 2010's Hunt for the Decepticons Scout-class Hubcap, the replies peg this as a Diaclone-era design, so well before that figure was designed and likely a coincidence.
