Transformers Vs G.I. Joe, Windblade, More WonderCon 2014 IDW Comics Panel Video and Images
Sean Long, ExVee - Sunday, April 20, 2014

Thanks to our very own TNI and Sean Long who has posted a video of the Transformers, G.I. Joe, and My Little Pony panel from WonderCon 2014 that was held by IDW Publishing this weekend. Following the entire session now in the view that gives is details about upcoming Transformers comics and whole lot more. Read on to watch the Transformers Vs G.I. Joe WonderCon 2014 IDW Comics Panel now.

John Barber summarized the three current Transformers titles in turn, describing Robots in Disguise as bringing its political storylines to Earth, and used an example from Star Trek to describe how Megatron joining the cast of More Than Meets The Eye will affect the book going forward - likely meaning in changing the dynamics of the character relationships on the ship while everyone adjusts to the new captain. Mairghread Scott then went on to talk about the Windblade miniseries, emphasizing the book as a good jumping on point for new readers, and how she and artist Sarah Stone are trying to make a "very fun, expressive book."

Transformers: Primacy, the third title in Flint Dille's IDW "prequel trilogy" after Autocracy and Monstrosity was announced. Dille noted the book would focus on an infamously destructive battle from Cybertron's history, speculated to be the Simanzi Massacre which has been referred to a number of times previously. Dille also said that this would be where we see the characters we know become who they are now, in the modern era.

Barber and Guzman then discussed the upcoming Transformers vs GI Joe title. Both agreed the book was very crazy and fun. Barber went on to say that the book was "pure sci-fi" with an army-vs-aliens style story. Both Barber and Guzman praised artist Tom Scioli for being able to produce art of some of the reported craziness of the scripts. IDW's GI Joe continuity was reported to return in September, though no official announcement was made of that today. Additionally, an announcement for Dungeons and Dragons was promised to come soon. The panel presentation concluded with details about upcoming stories in IDW's My Little Pony comic, and a Littlest Pet Shop title.

During the Q&A, Barber revealed that Megatron becoming an Autobot was in the works for over two years prior to the reveal at the end of Dark Cybertron. Barber promised that the Decepticons now aren't the same as before, and that the group that falls in with Galvatron will have different objectives.

Mairghread Scott was asked about the development of Windblade, who started as basically a blank slate. Deciding that she wouldn't be "super awesome at everything," Windblade was developed starting from the outside, using elements like the "makeup" design on the toy to figure out the inner workings of the character. She wanted to use Windblade's story to help new readers come to love Cybertron by seeing Windblade do so herself.

Finally, John Barber confirmed Age of Extinction would not have a tie-in comic book such as there were for the previous movies.

Transformers At The Moon has posted the latest in their series of deleted audio and extended scenes from the original 1984 The Transformers cartoon series! This time, they've got over ten minutes' worth of dialogue from "Heavy Metal War," featuring the first appearance of the Constructicons. Keep reading to see the video along with a transcript of the dialogue.
The closure of ToysRUs provokes a lot of emotions - sadness, frustration at the circumstances, and in some a misguided sense of satisfaction stemming from their latter-day pricing habits. But at some point in our lives a great many of us were ToysRUs Kids. And so longtime Transformers fan and ASMzine proprietor Phil Zeman has created the site I Didn't Want to Grow Up, which is accepting submissions of your stories and reminiscences of visiting what was once the premiere source of action figures for children and collectors. Click through for a link!
Few would guess the last piece to be reissued from the original Transformers Generation 1 series would be the music scores. Even thought the original cartoons have been reissued, updated and restored multiple times. Fans that have been asking for copies of the Original Sound Tracks (OST) masters have finally gotten theirs, on vinyl of all things. IF, they were fast enough to buy one of the 2,000 copies that sold out in less than 10 minutes. The good news is a second pressing is in the works.
ALL GOOD THINGS…! Rodimus and the Crusadercons have reached their final destination. The trouble is, it’s not Cyberutopia. In fact, it’s not ANYWHERE. But they’d better get used to it, because they’re going to be there until the end of Time…
After selling out their limited run within minutes, Enjoy The Ride Records has announced that their vinyl G1 soundtrack LP will be heading back to the presses later this year! Details and an exact timeframe are not known at this time, but it's good to know that access to this (at present) vinyl-only release will be expanding somewhat. Keep reading to see the announcement!
