IDW artist Alex Milne has posted a preview for the Transformers Spotlight: Megatron comic book cover to his deviantART account. Get a look at the his covers artwork for the retailer incentive cover that what will be offered exclusively by Staduim Comics in Ontario, Canada. Get a look at the cover art by Alex with some of his insights on the artwork he created as well as a look at the find comic book cover along with the event details and pre-order information.
well this was a special cover i got the chance to work on. The owner of the comic shop i go to asked me if i was interested in doing a cover for and store exclusive book. this was something that we had talked about many times in the past but there hadn't been a transformers one to do....until now ;p
the owner pitched the idea to me about doing a cover, but was unsure about doing it since he wasn't aware about where the books fit into the main stories. i asked what books he was offered a cover for. he mentioned a G.I.Joe one, then a tf comic about megatron. i was like ok.....then i was like, wait, what, megatron? do you mean spotlight megatron? then i was like OMG i want to do that :D
so after a discussion that day, i came up with some roughs. the owner and i went over them, and then i whipped up the cover. it was a blast to do. i love drawing this design of megatron. i know its not the most loved design, but i do enjoy drawing it. i added the store logo in the bottom cover plus a couple extra decepticons that i knew the owner liked :) it was a joy to work on
so this will be a store exclusive comic. i will have a few copies that people will be able to get from me at the various conventions i will be at, but other then from me, stadiums comics will be the only place you'll be able to get this cover of the book
here is a like to there store [link]
here a link to there facebook for the in store signing i will be doing [link]

the fabulous colors were provided by the ever so talented Josh Perez. i think he out did himself on this cover. it really turned out well
it was a joy to work with him on this project. i always wished when i was working on the ongoing comics that i would have gotten to do an issue or 2 with him.
i love all the textures he has going on in the image.

well , back to work for me
enjoy :)

There's a point where things can be so bad, they are good. The folks at Shredders have taken this idea to the next level with their line of pop culture inspired Xmas sweaters. Fans will be happy to know they can get a wonderfully tacky Transformers sweater rippling with woven Optimus Prime goodness. The sweaters can be ordered online in sizes from XS, for the kids, to XXXL for the big folks too at $79.99 USD. Read on for the details and a look at the hideous goodness.
Bryce Malek, who served as story editor for the first two seasons of the original Transformers cartoon, filmed a short movie showing his workplace at Marvel Productions. Part of the video shows Malek looking over a draft script of The Immobilizer, here titled "The Molecule Immobilizer". While this doesn't offer a lot besides Malek's attempts at basic cinematography, it's an interesting and rare chance to see behind the scenes where the scripts for Transformers were created. Click through and check out the embedded video!
Thanks to Weibo member transformers we have news and an image giving us a first look at a new Optimus Prime project from Ori Toy. The shot shows what appears to be some kind of bust of the Autobot Leader. Juding from the name, it could a die-cast-like version of Prime's torso detailing and all the drool worth goodness that goes with. Check out the image till we know more.
The WIP Department Facebook page has posted an extensive gallery from Toy Soul 2014! Among the new things on the page is one heretofore unknown Transformers product from Kids Logic: an SD G1 Devastator! We'll have more info on that as it becomes available, but for now keep reading to see it- and check out WIP Department's page for a LOT of non-Transformers stuff from Toy Soul!
This is a Transformers concept by Andrew Mercer who started working on this concept back in 2011. Knowing that 2014 was the 30th anniversary year, he thought this line would be a cool way to celebrate the rich history of the brand. Figures that could reformat between different Generations in the same way they could Transform from robot to vehicle. Transformat = Reformat + Transform.
