Simon Furman Script Wrap Transformers: Regeneration One #85 - The ULTIMATE Showdown Between Optimus Prime and Megatron

By Jack on Monday, November 05, 2012



According to Simon Furman all bets are off this time. Fans of the Transformers have been marinated in the Optimus Prime Versus Megatron showdown ever since we saw them battle atop the dam in Generation 1. Most every series, comic and movie has culminated in the "Showdown" that largely goes the same way with Megatron being foiled when he's just inches away from extinguishing Prime's spark for good. Frankly (no-pun), its become the parsley on the plate made to make the story look nice with adding a lot of flavor. However, according to Furman, Transformers: Regeneration One #85 gets seriously serious this time.
So uppermost in mind when we got to continue the saga beyond it’s abrupt conclusion in issue #80 (in Regeneration One), was to put that to rights, to accelerate Optimus and Megatron into a showdown where all bets are off, the stakes and surrounding elements too mighty to brush off with an inconclusive draw (another stalemate was just not on the cards). In one corner, you’ve got Prime, who’s been head in the sand for the past 20 years, in the other Megatron, who’s been laying waste to Earth with almost the sole aim of sticking it to Prime and getting his attention. Well, now he’s got it — big time. The gloves are well and truly off. And just when you think it can’t get any more extreme (in terms of Prime’s state of mind), any worse — it does.

It's been... what, maybe a couple weeks now? Which means it's time for another Japanese toy show. Today, courtesy of TAG Hobby, we've got new shots of Kotobukiya's upcoming D-Style model kits of Starscream, Skywarp, & Thundercracker, and they look pretty good!

Multiple outlets have reported that Herb Trimpe, the first artist to draw Wolverine and GI Joe, has passed away suddenly at the age of 75. As an artist for Marvel Comics, Trimpe drew a handful of issues of the G1 Transformers comic, as well as GI Joe vs The Transformers and the covers to the Transformers Universe miniseries. By all accounts he was a much loved and respected comics artist and human being, and will be missed. More details on Mr. Trimpe's career after the jump.
At East Coast Comic Con this past weekend, Marvel Comics inker Dave Hunt had a selection of his work on display, and included among these pages are parts of an unpublished adaptation of the season three cartoon episode Dweller In The Depths. Reportedly issues like this were prepared as backups in case the normal monthly storylines weren't turned in on time. Only a few pages survive to today, but Roboplastic Apocalypse was able to take photos, which were posted to their Facebook page. Click through, and have a look!
Optimus Prime! Transforms from tractor trailer to robot with headquarters and back. That’s the whole point of Transformers, figures that can be converted between modes. While the process of going between configurations is an important one, we can often attach more importance to factors such as appearance, scale, accessories, aesthetics, posability and the like. But this week, I will be listing my personal top 5 transformation sequences across all the official Hasbro and Takara Tomy Transformers toys that I have had the pleasure of experiencing.
