Furman Talks Reveal the Shield Battle In Space Comic Book Details

Now that the Transformers Reveal the Shield Battle In Space two pack has been fully revealed, Simon Furman, the author of the Rodimus vs Cyclonus, has revealed the premise of the packed-in comic book.

The script (w)rap is rather spoiler-ish, so take a look below.
    The news is out — Hasbro’s Battle in Space set, featuring Rodimus and Cyclonus, comes with an exclusive comic book written by me and drawn by Boo. Up till now, I’ve kept quiet about this one, largely because I didn’t want to steal anyone’s thunder, and the script (w)rap for the issue has been, well, under wraps.

    But now that both set and comic have been announced, it can be revealed (spoilers ahoy — so stop reading now if you’d rather not know) — the comic features an all-new, extra reel of Transformers the Animated Movie!

    Yes, names not withstanding, this is a neatly spliced new story set within the framework of the existing movie, and focuses on Rodimus (Hot Rod) and Cyclonus in a pitched, no holds barred battle that presages the climactic transformation of Rodimus (Hot Rod) into Rodimus Prime.

    The story also features Scourge, Kup, Wheelie, Galvatron, the Dinobots and more. No news yet (though feel free to leave a comment and update if you know more) when the Battle in Space set is due to hit stores. [The set will be out in December -ed]

These two figures are the same redecorated ones that are featured in the Asia-exclusive Challenge at Cybertron three pack, but have gotten a chrome Generation 1 Matrix of Leadership thrown into the mix.
