By Superquad7 from TFW2005:
IDW Transformers artist Marcelo Matere recently updated his deviantArt page with his pencils for the dealer incentive covers of the Transformers: More than Meets the Eye and Transformers: Robots in Disguise books. What is really special about these covers is that they interconnect to reveal a larger image!

He had this to say on his dA page:

"Since IDW showed these covers during their panel at Botcon last weekend, I think there's no problem to show it here!

Do you like Decepticons? Dinobots so here we go!

Interconnected covers pencils for issue #7 of Transformers: More Than Meets the Eyes and Transformers: Robots in Disguise. Those are the incentive covers for the Decepticon and Dinobot month ( July/2012)"


You can view the larger image after the jump!

Also, just a reminder to those of you aspiring artists: several artists who are now working professionally for companies such as IDW and even Hasbro got their start in our very Creative Fan Art Forums here! Be sure to check out the artwork by the many talented artists who frequent our forums, and if you have artwork to share with the fandom, by all means post it up!

TVHUB Interview - Frank Welker Talks Transformers Prime
Posted by News Fetcher on April 30 '12 at 10:45 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
TVHUB had the opportunity to interview the legend Frank Welker; the man behind the voice of G1 and Prime Megatron. Below are some of the highlights:

When you first started voicing Megatron and other Transformers characters in the 1980s, did you think this franchise would still be living on through big screen features and new television series almost 30 years later? How do you feel about the way its continued to grow into what it is now?

Peter Cullen (Optimus Prime voice actor) and I have often talked about that very thing. We had no idea how big the fan base was or how the franchise was growing back then. We never received any fan mail and the only feedback we got was when and if the show was picked up for another season. We didn't have any invites to Bot Cons and the like until just a few years ago, so all of this attention was a surprise, a very pleasant surprise. With the features and the new iterations of all things TF, the new audience and the old supporters seem to remain enthusiastic and that is very meaningful and appreciated.

Do you have any thoughts on the upcoming Transformers 4 movie? You voiced Shockwave and a few other characters in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, so have you been approached to voice Shockwave or any other character for Transformers 4? Is there a particular character you'd love to voice that you haven't been given the chance to yet?

I haven't been asked to participate in the new features, but usually we don't know until later because the voice work comes at the end of the production process. I'm not sure if any of the TF's I did in the other features will be returning. I would like to see Soundwave get more screen time he is always a fun character. For Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, I did his voice in many foreign languages and that was really fun. Hard, but fun. I didn't have a lot of lines but I tried to make the most of them. Japanese was impossible!!!

Maketoys Giant Combined Mode Images and Information
Posted by News Fetcher on April 30 '12 at 10:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
If you knew where to look at Botcon 2012 you might have noticed that a Giant was among us in the dealer room - a Maketoys Giant that is. The second Not-Devastator to reach the market was on show, and our staff member Boardwise got to take a look at the big guy. According to Boardwise this thing is sturdy - one of the people at the booth where this was shown picked it up by the chestplate and shook it, with nothing falling off. The connectors use a button-lock system for stability. On this version, the legs shown are unpainted prototypes, the rest are production models.

One final tidbit that may be of interest is that the green version of Giant is going to be sporting a different head mold for the combined mode, according to the person who was speaking to Boardwise.

Discuss this and all things Giant by hitting the discuss button!

When his teammates need something special built, they call SHAFTER. After a stunning defeat and exile from the Savage Land, SHAFTER was determined to redeem himself. Called on by STRONGHOLD to completely redesign all fortifications after the breakout of TOXIN and his companions, SHAFTER is hard at work making sure every possible hole is plugged tight. His small size allows him to access many areas others can’t, but belies a strength that allows him to accomplish even the hardest jobs. SHAFTER’s mastery of civil engineering allows him to construct a solution from the ground up, drawing inspiration from the monuments of his home world and the wonders he’s found on Earth. SHAFTER’s abilities at design aren’t just limited to blueprints, either, and his cunning strategies have turned defeat into victory numerous times. Even with all his defensive skills, SHAFTER is no stranger to the front lines. SHAFTER is durable enough for the most toughest jobsite, and can shrug off enemy fire while “giving as good as he gets” with his powerful hydraulic arms or his induction rivet-guns. SHAFTER intends to make sure that the next enemy spy looking for trouble finds a lot more than they bargain for, and to prove once and for all that great things can come from small packages.

Shafter is a redeco of the iGear Rager figure. TFcon 2012 preregistration will go online tomorrow, May 1st.

Hall of Fame Award Renamed the Hartman Award
Posted by News Fetcher on April 29 '12 at 11:30 PM
By Superquad7 from TFW2005:
Karl Hartman, one of the original organizers of Botcon along with his brother Jon Hartman, updated his Facebook page today with some exciting news: the fan's choice Hall of Fame Award has been renamed as "The Hartman Award" to honor the Hartman's contribution to the foundation and legacy of Botcon!

Jon had this to say:

Each year at the Hasbro Transformers Hall of Fame dinner during BotCon (the official Transformers convention), Transformers characters and the creative people behind the Transformers brand are inducted into the Transformers hall of fame. The fans are asked to vote each year for one character that they want to be inducted into the hall of fame, as a fan's choice.

This year, Aaron Archer, one of the vice presidents and creative directors at Hasbro, declared that the fan's choice award will now be called 'the Hartman Award', named for my brother Jon and my contributions to the Transformers fan community over the years, specifically the creation of BotCon 18 years ago in 1994. We are certainly very honored and humbled by this recognition. This is a picture of Aaron and myself taken at the Hasbro booth at BotCon this afternoon.


Congratulations to the Hartman brothers for this honor, and we celebrate along with you while thanking you for your contribution to our fandom! Your hard work is very much respected and appreciated!
