TFW2005 boards member D-Drive is here once again bringing us the Diamond Comics shipping list for next Wednesday, August 27th. After a long and excruciating wait, the next issue of Transformers: More than Meets the Eye is finally upon us, and promises to bring the tears. Also coming to us is Transformers vs. G.I. Joe #2, and a figure of a certain freelance peacekeeping agent.
Read on for the full details, and discuss after the jump!
TRANSFORMERS MORE THAN MEETS EYE #32 (also shipping 1-in-10 and subscription variants)
(W) James Roberts (A/CA) Alex Milne
SLAUGHTERHOUSE! The crew of the Lost Light are used to past decisions coming back to bite them, but nothing-not even an ULTRA MAGNUS-certified crash course in the law of unintended consequences-could have prepared them for the horrors of Sector 113. Be warned: this issue is not for the easily distressed-or the easily heartbroken.
TRANSFORMERS VS GI JOE #2 (also shipping 1-in-10 and subscription variants)
(W) Tom Scioli, John Barber (A/CA) Tom Scioli

Thanks to TFW2005 board member D-Drive we have our first look at the Diamond Edition cover and solicit for Transformers Timelines #10: Pirates vs Knights! This issue was featured at BotCon 2014, the Diamond edition will include a brand new cover by artist Marcelo Matare. Here's the info we have so far:
TRANSFORMERS TIMELINES #10 PIRATES VS KNIGHTS
FUN PUBLICATIONS INC(W) Marty Isenberg (A) Hayato Sakamoto (CA) Marcelo Matere
Noble, wise, and loyal to the cause, the Knights of Cybertron are steadfast in their protection of their homeworld. Any villainy that dare threaten the planet will be met with valiant courage, unwavering will, and Cybertron's greatest warriors! What remains of Unicron has cast its shadow over Cybertron for years, a constant reminder to the planet's inhabitants of the war that almost destroyed their world. Though he has been dormant for a long time, Captain Cannonball, Scorponok, and the pirate crew of the Star Seekers have arrived to change that. Hoping to use Unicron's insatiable hunger to drain Cybertron of Energon, the pirates may have underestimated the chaosbringer's own ambitions!
Cover by Marcelo Matare
We'll keep you updated as more information about this release is made available!Read Replies (0)

Third party group Bold Forms
have shared some new images of prototypes of their unofficial takes on Motormaster and Megatron, aka Lone Wolf and Gladius. From these images we can see the Megatron has a Generation 1 style robot mode with a tank alternate mode - much like the upcoming Hasbro Leader class toy - while the Motormaster seems to be a Masterpiece scaled version of the Generation 1 toy with some extra details included.
Discuss the Lone Wolf / Motormaster images here
, and the Gladius / Megatron images here
