, which seems to be the go-to source regarding recent announcements regarding the Transformers Cinematic Universe of sequels, prequels and spin-offs, has just announced two more writers that have been added to the writer's room headed by Akiva Goldsman. The new additions are Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down
) and Geneva Robertson-Dworet. These new writers join the previously announced team of Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, Zak Penn, Jeff Pinkner, Robert Kirkman, Christina Hodson, Lindsey Beer, Andrew Barrer, and Gabriel Ferrari.
Akiva Goldsman also explains some of the reasoning behind this writer's room in the article, so check out the link above to read what he has to say. In one paragraph he even mentions Beast Wars as something that could be explored:“If one of the writers discovers an affinity for Beast Wars, they can drive forward on treatments that will have been fleshed out by the whole room,” Goldsman said.
Only time will tell if a spin-off featuring the Maximals and Predacons of Beast Wars will become a reality, but the possibility is mentioned by Mr. Goldsman himself! It appears that they are considering many options for future films.

:Apple's iBooks site
has updated with a brief three page preview of the final part of the Combiner Wars arc, which takes place in next week's Transformers Windblade #3! It's a full-on battle between five mighty combiners - Superion, Defensor, Devastator, Menasor, and... well, that would be telling!
There's two art styles at work in this preview, with the Combiner sequences being done by Marcelo Ferreira and the sequences played out by "normal sized" giant robots by Corin Howell - both bring their own style to the book, and they create an interesting but not displeasing juxtaposition.
Check out the preview, then be sure to pick up the full issue next Wednesday, June 10th, for the galaxy-shaking finale!Read Replies (0)

The Combiner Wars
news continues to rush in! This time, we have box artwork to what appears to be a package of three fembots - Arcee
, and Windblade
! This image comes to us courtesy of TFND's Facebook page
, and thanks to TFW2005.COM member Slimaximus for pointing us all to it.
The artwork suggests a few things to us. The reflection of Devastator
in Arcee's meelee weapon and the fact that this is a boxed set may be an indication that this set will be a San Diego Comic Con exclusive, as the sets could be made to "face off" with each other. There are several notable details that suggest additional paint applications (such as the Autobot faction symbol on Arcee's face) that could indicate a "Premium" type of release, which would also be consistent with a SDCC exclusive release.

We've got a great new gallery of a toy from the Age of Extinction line that never left Japan to share with you! Courtesy of TFW2005 member Russian fan, we have a look at AD-31 Armor Knight Optimus Prime
Armor Knight Optimus Prime is to the regular Age of Extinction Leader Optimus Prime what Buster Optimus Prime was to the Revenge of the Fallen Leader Optimus Prime - a toy that takes the base Leader toy we got at mass retail and then improves on it, with remolded elements, new accessories, and a premium level of paint to become the definitive version. For Armor Knight Optimus Prime, this meant a lot of remolding including the chest, arms and head, the latter of which was also reworked to include a gimmick to allow Optimus' face to switch from a faceplate head to an unmasked one. The paint is also a step up and really helps to put this one over. If you've not got a toy of this new Movie Optimus Prime, right now, this is the definitive item.
Check out Russian Fan's photos of this gorgeous piece at the link below, including some shots of the toy with the Beelzeboss die-cast Sword of Justice - I'm told that the weight of metal does unfortunately make it hard for the toy to hold, but it looks truly boss in the robot's hands.
