IDW has sent out an SDCC press release detailing a few of their future Transformers books, including more information and clarification on both Combiner Wars and Angry Birds. Specifically, it seems that the Combiner Wars toy tie-in will be an event that spans across both the Robots in Disguise (#39-41) and Windblade Returns (#1-3) series, in a fashion similar to that of the previous toy tie-in event, Dark Cybertron:Angry Birds / Transformers
Announced earlier this year, Rovio and Hasbro have teamed up two beloved properties in Angry Birds and The TRANSFORMERS! This fall IDW will bring the mayhem to comics with the brand new series, Angry Birds Transformers, expanding on the unexpected backgrounds of this explosive crossover! Written by The Transformers mastermind, John Barber, with art by Marcelo Ferriera, this crossover will be one for the record books!
Transformers: Combiner Wars
A new Transformers event, Transformers: Combiner Wars will start March 2015 from writers Mairghread Scott and John Barber and artists Sarah Stone and Livio Ramondelli. It’s an arms-race of truly titanic proportions as a long-lost ancient artifact allows the Cybertronians to unite into more powerful, gigantic forms. Will Cybertron—or the galaxy—be able to withstand the onslaught? Find out with a prologue and 5 issues, running in TRANSFORMERS #39-41 and the new TRANSFORMERS: WINDBLADE #1-3, which will be packed in with select TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS toys.

Amiami has updated with official images of Sentinel's gigantic non-transforming licensed Megazarak
(aka Scorponok) and Black Zarak
(aka the expensive Scorponok recolor with gold plastic syndrome).
These "Gigantic Action" figures each stand about two feet tall, so are scaled against the height of the Generation 1 Fortress Maximus toy, and are based on how the characters looked in their appearances in the Headmasters and Masterforce animated series in 1987 and 1988 respectively. They're due in late October (for Megazarak) and late November (for Black Zarak), but they come with a huge pricetag of 48,600 yen or around $480!Read Replies (0)

TFW2005's coverage of Summer Wonder Festival in Japan continues
, this time thanks to images from 2chan.
First off, we have images of upcoming poseable figures of Generation One Arcee and Elita-1 from Fewture Models (similiar to the Optimus Prime and Alpha Trion articulated figures we originally reported on during the last Wonder Festival in February.
) Secondly, Sentinel (company behind toylines such as Riobot, as well as the Optimus Prime transforming pen) has revealed that they will be producing a retool of their previously revealed Gigantic Action non-transforming Zarak toy
into Black Zarak from Transformers: Masterforce! This non-transforming collector's piece is perfect for those who are very wary of the original Black Zarak's infamous Gold Plastic Syndrome. Unless you want a Transforming Black Zarak, that is.
Stay tuned to TFW2005 as we bring you more news from Summer Wonder Festival as it happens!Read Replies (0)
