Madefire Expands To Windows 8 With Exclusive Transformers Motion Book Release
Five New Episodes Of Hasbro And IDW Publishing’s Transformers Are Now Available Exclusively Through The Madefire App On Windows 8

San Francisco, CA – June 25 2014 – In collaboration with Hasbro and IDW Publishing, Madefire, today announced that the five-issue Transformers: Punishment will be the newest additions to expand the Madefire Motion Book library with an exclusive Microsoft Windows 8 platform release. These exclusive stories based on Hasbro’s iconic Transformers brand, will be available on all of the latest Windows 8 devices for no cost, and will provide a unique reading experience designed and built specifically for the digital screen.

Transformers: Punishment is all-new original content developed within the current IDW Transformers universe with its debut as a Madefire Motion Book. The creative team behind the five-part series are Transformers comic fan-favorites, writer John Barber and artist Livio Ramondelli. Autobots and Decepticons come alive and battle it out as Motion Books -- the newest innovation in reading to come to Windows 8.

“It’s a thrill to see Optimus Prime spring into action,” said John Barber. “This is a hard-hitting action story, and Madefire’s Motion Books — including music and sound effects — deliver a powerful reading experience that makes you feel like you’re in the center of it all!”

"Windows devices are supported by a rich app ecosystem that offers a variety of quality apps that take advantage of the platform's unique features such as Live Tiles, snap and Bing Smart Search integration," said Todd Brix, general manager, Windows Apps and Store, Microsoft Corp. "The Madefire Motion Books app’s unique use of these features, paired with exclusive Transformers content for Windows users, really bring the app to life on the platform.”

Designed for reading on a screen, Madefire has built an end-to-end publishing platform called Motion Books -- a benchmark reading experience for mobile, tablet and web that immerses the reader in a sequential narrative with sound, motion, and depth. Today, Madefire Motion Books expands beyond the iOS and web-reading partner, social network and creative giant deviantART, and is available on any Windows 8 device operating system. Currently, Madefire Motion Books is a free Windows 8 and iOS app that delivers the most innovative reading experience for digital devices as it pioneers the next chapter in storytelling. It has been an iOS 5-star rated app since launch, and was awarded an App Store’s “Best of 2012”.

“A global entertainment, like Transformers comics coming alive through Motion Books exclusively written for the Windows 8 platform is one thing, but teaming up with the biggest OS in the world makes it a huge milestone,” stated Madefire CEO and Co-Founder Ben Wolstenholme, “Its about bringing stories to life on the devices we use everyday – period.”

Via Imaginarium Art we have some photos of a new release coming up, featuring Starscream in his coronation gear from the original Transformers: The Movie. Starscream is posed seated on a throne ...made of missiles? It seems an odd choice in home furnishings, but perhaps alien robots have different sensibilities. The new statue is marked as a "build to order" item, but with a production run limit of 400 pieces. It's available from sponsor BigBadToyStore now as a preorder for $1199.99. Click through to see all the photos!

Twitter user @miiakira2017 has once again posted some new G1 design sketches! This time, it's for a pretty interesting footnote in Transformers history: an unproduced Transformers Personal Organizer! The book would've had a few real pages, backed by a stack of dummy pages that then turned into a robot. Autobot and Decepticon versions were designed with slightly different surface details for each. Keep reading to see!
Thanks to @miiakira2017 on Twitter we have even more looks at early Transformers concept designs from Japan. These are more even more fantastic than before with looks at two different base concepts. The first is what looks like a transforming case that is a mock mountain that opens up to reveal a multi-teir base with all kinds of ramps, ladders, weapons and what appears to be Sky Spy type probe. The other is much more Diaclone looking with a big carrier type base with tiny-looking tank treads to indicate scale.
