IDW Announces Post-Revolution Debuts!

G.I. JOE, M.A.S.K., and Other New Titles Explode Out of September’s Bi-Weekly Event Series

San Diego, CA (July 21, 2016) – This September, the 5-part bi-weekly REVOLUTION will forever impact the future of Transformers, G.I. Joe, ROM, Micronauts, Action Man, and M.A.S.K.: Mobile Armored Strike Kommand, establishing a cohesive comic book universe for all these characters and titles. Spinning out of those universe-defining events, multiple exciting new Hasbro-licensed titles will follow shortly thereafter to pick up the story where Revolution leaves off. G.I. JOE will re-launch as an ongoing with a new creative team and new #1 this December following a Revolution tie-in one-shot in October. Writer Aubrey Sitterson (Street Fighter X G.I. Joe) and artist Giannis Milonogiannis (Prophet) will collaborate on this fresh take on the long-running series, putting a unique spin on the Joe legacy in a post-Revolution world while delving into the cast’s deep roster of iconic characters.

M.A.S.K.: Mobile Armored Strike Kommand gets a monthly series for the first time courtesy of writer Brandon Easton (Transformers: Deviations) and artist Tony Vargas (Rot & Ruin). A one-shot Revolution tie-in will coincide with the September launch of Revolution #1 & #2. The ongoing series launch will follow in November. The take on this beloved series will be contemporary but with a slight touch of nostalgia to satisfy fans of the 1980’s cartoon.

The Revolution ripple effect continues to shake things up as IDW’s Transformers line will see some changes with the introduction of two new ongoing titles: Transformers: Lost Light and the first-ever ongoing Optimus Prime series.

Transformers: Lost Light will continue the fan-favorite adventures told by More Than Meets the Eye writer James Roberts, joined on art by Jack Lawrence (Doctor Who Adventures). Beginning in December, this new series will take Rodimus and the crew of the starship Lost Light into the farthest reaches of the universe, searching for the long-lost Knights of Cybertron.

Next, John Barber, who recently exited his post as IDW’s Hasbro Group Editor, won’t be straying too far from his IDW roots as he tackles Optimus Prime, the first solo series to star the eponymous Autobot. John will be joined by artist Kei Zama (Scarlett Witch). Optimus Prime has declared Earth to be under his protection—and this November, he’ll have to face the consequences.

All those titles will join the currently running Transformers: Till All Are One, Micronauts, and upcoming ROM, which will each continue on, their storylines now converging with this newly established universe as their backdrop.

Thanks to SurgeOpressor we have a sighting report of the new assortment of Cyber Battalion figures featuring Shockwave and Sideswipe, plus some new photos of Shockwave. The figures were purchased at a Walgreens in San Francisco (of which we assume there must be a staggering number all told) with at least one other sighting in the same area indicating the beginnings of distribution for the new wave. They're priced the same as their predecessors at Walgreens, around $18, though it seems to vary by location. Click through to check out the new photos.
We've got a quick few images on Weibo giving us our first in hand look at the new Cyber Battalion Sideswipe. Part of an assortment with the brand new Shockwave, Sideswipe has been accused of not entirely representing the typical look of the character, and now we have a clearer idea why: It shares fundamental engineering (and probably some of its parts) with Prowl. While many parts look brand new, some of the inner body structure does seem to be shared between the toys, and they seem to transform identically. You can get a good look at the pair side by side in the new photos to compare them for yourself, click through to see!
This evening via twitter, Flame Toys has shared some new photos of an early sample of their upcoming figure of Tarn. Tarn is the first of IDW's Decepticon Justice Division to get an official, licensed figure representation, albeit a non-transforming one. Flame Toys reports that they've finally finished the color master as depicted in these images, which should represent what the full production run will look like later on. We have the photos mirrored for your convenience, check them out just below!
Thanks to Weibo user NOTRAB. We have look at the Transformers Power of the Primes Optimal Optimus figure. The Beast Wars Maximal Transmetals II design figure is finally seen out of package. Giving us a look at what the final production edition will look like. Read on to see the figure out of the box in his robot, ape, and jet modes after the jump.
