ABOUT TRANSFORMERS: COMBINER WARS

Taking place 40 years after the great war on Earth, the eight episode digital series introduces new lore and all-new characters that, combined with the characters fans have known for decades, will bring the Transformers storytelling in a new direction.

However, an ancient technology has enabled a new threat, the power for multiple Transformers to combine into one massive, dangerous form: Combiners. Who will stand-up to this threat to ensure that the fragile peace that was 4 million years in the making remains?

After a lot of crazy things happening all in a relatively short span of time, it seems like life is finally starting to settle down, with efforts to smooth tensions between Cybertron and Earth being foremost in Optimus Prime's mind. I'm sure nothing could possibly turn up to get in the way of that! "The Falling, Chapter 1: Surfeit of Primes" written by John Barber, art by Kei Zama, colors by Josh Burcham. Click here to read the review!
Transformers Authentics, the "evergreen" style simple budget figures that seem to be taking after the Cyber Battalion series now have product listings on Hasbro's website. The first batch including Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Starscream, and Megatron are not yet available for purchase from Hasbro Toy Shop, with their "Buy" buttons leading to error pages. But these listings do confirm the SRP, with prices listed at $4.99 each. The listings include the same images that we saw with the Amazon releases recently. Keep reading for links to the individual pages.
Blast Off has been leaked a couple of times, enough to be reasonably sure that it was something to actually exist in the upcoming product line. We have a bit more confirmation of that now through a listing on ACD Distribution. This doesn't give any new information, but it's joined by a second listing that is much more interesting for its implications. Listed additionally as a Generations Special Edition Deluxe is a Repugnus! Repugnus had been conspicuous as the only Monsterbot character that didn't end up making it to the Deluxe scale, but it seems that will finally be achieved, bringing the whole team together. Keep reading for some good old speculation!
Via the iTunes store, we have the first look at the opening pages of the upcoming issue 13 of Lost Light -- which conveniently has nothing to do with the solicitation blurb! Keep reading to see the preview pages. CABIN FEVER! Crammed into a dead Decepticon astropod that's ten sizes too small, the displaced crew of the Lost Light face their most serious threat yet: each other. As tensions rise and tempers fray, only one Autobot is arrogant enough to think he can save the day. Enter Rodimus, expert mediator.
Newsarama has provided our first look this afternoon at the full length preview for next week's issue of Optimus Prime. Issue 15 launches "The Falling", a storyline which should see the return of Onyx Prime, an event hinted at for some time already. We'll have a review of the issue for you early next week, and in the meantime, click through to see the preview in our gallery below.
