IDW Editor John Barber Q&A - Transformers Comics
Posted by News Fetcher on August 02 '11 at 07:45 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
IDW’s new editor John Barber shared his thoughts on Hasbro’s Transformers and G. I. Joe Franchises.

“Q: Would I be right in saying the movie comics are currently done until what happens next with the franchise is decided?

A: I can’t confirm or deny anything right now. I’m just not sure what we’re going to do about moving forward. Its one of the things on the agenda I have to talk about when I get to IDW. We’ll see where everything stands and figure it out from there.

Q: After planning and plotting through three major, and well-received movie-verse comic series - how would you describe your Transformers perspective/history/vision to fans that might not know much about you, other than your work?

A: The thing I wanted to do going into the movie-verse was respect it and what had gone on before, and also tell stories I felt people would want to pick up. You know, if they had never seen a comic or maybe they’d come out of the movie theatre and they wanted some more. As much as the continuity stuff played a role in it—and as big a length as I went to not contradict or retcon anything—to me, the main thing was that you could pick up Foundation or Rising Storm and get a whole new set of adventures with these characters. You know, sometimes you see these movie tie-ins, and I’m not speaking of the Transformers ones, I mean historically throughout the history of comic books, and the worst ones for me are those that focus in on one specific continuity issue, or thread, that someone really wouldn’t care about. You should be able to enjoy these without necessarily knowing what came before.”

Auto Assembly Update
Posted by News Fetcher on August 02 '11 at 07:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
With all the excitement of TFCon now passed (and what a great weekend it was), we now turn to the third of the big three summer Transformers conventions: Auto Assembly. AA2011 is less than two weeks away, and there is plenty of news about the 2011 and the 2012 conventions.

First and foremost, we've got the program for the events across the whole weekend. An update went out by email within the last two days, detailing the various panels, contests and other activities taking place. Read on for the full text of this update. The key panels taking place across the weekend include Auto Assembly's first ever Friday panel, celebrating the 25th anniversary of Simon Furman's legendary UK story Target 2006. This panel is hosted by Nick Roche and also includes Simon Furman and Geoff Senior. Saturday will see a panel with Gregg Berger, while Sunday's program includes panels with David Kaye, David Wise, and Death's Head!

Other events across the weekend include contests for Artwork, Kitbash, Mosaic, and Cosplay, a Beast Wars Transmetals videogame tournament and a Transformers Connect 4 tournament.

Another great event over the weekend is that Hasbro UK will have a display of upcoming Transformers products. The display is billed as showcasing some of the latest Transformers available - so probably nothing groundbreaking in terms of upcoming products, but still a nice chance to see some toys yet to hit the UK in the flesh.

By Secretcode from TFW2005:
Slagacon has updated their website to announce a Non-Attendee package for their upcoming convention, and for their upcoming Vector Zeta Add-on kit for Classics Optimus Prime.

There has been a lot of interest in our exclusive for Slagacon 2011, the Vector Zeta armor set, and we thank everyone who’s purchased one so far. One of the most common requests we’ve seen, both here and on TF fan boards across the ‘net, is the desire for a non-attendee package. After much deliberation, we’ve decided to open up Vector Zeta to the general public.

The War Within the Age of Wrath Issues 5 and 6 Summary
Posted by News Fetcher on August 01 '11 at 06:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
At TFCon this weekend, Simon Furman was selling copies of the script to The War Within The Age of Wrath issue 5, and a summary of issue 6 for which the script was never written. We've written a brief summary of both issues for your enjoyment, if you - like us - want to know how this great series would have concluded. Check out the summaries below:

The War Within Volume 3 The Age of Wrath Issue 5

The War Within Volume 3 The Age of Wrath Issue 6

Get up to speed with what went before by viewing our summaries of the previous four issues here:

Transformers The War Within Volume 3 The Age of Wrath

Also be sure to check out the rest of our Transfomers Comics Resources section for more information on Transformers comics past and present.

On behalf of the entire Transfomers fandom, I would like to thank Simon Furman for sharing the scripts of these unreleased Transfomers comics with us. The folding of Dreamwave was a sad event, as was all the drama that accompanied it. To finally learn how these stories ended is a true gift to us all. So if you should meet Simon Furman at a convention down the road, be sure to give him some massive props for all he has done for Transformers, and our fandom.

TFCon Hasbro Booth Images
Posted by News Fetcher on July 31 '11 at 04:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Last but by no means least in this gallery of images from TFCon are some images from the Hasbro booth. On show were some really cool items including Kre-O, Ultimate Optimus Prime, The Ark and Transformers Prime Optimus Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee and the Bumblebee Role Play Blaster. The role play blaster is a cool little toy, and I am sure kids (or adults like shibamura_prime) will love it. Yes, as you might remember from previous years, Hasbro Canada let guests come along and take a look at these awesome pre-release toys. I got a chance to mess with Prime Bumblebee, and he is an excellent toy with a cool and intuitive transformation who looks great in both modes.

Read on and check out all the pics!

TFCon Customs and Art Contest Images
Posted by News Fetcher on July 31 '11 at 04:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here now for your viewing pleasure are some images from the TFCon customs and art contest display. There were loads of great pieces on display and all are worthy of recognition but in particular some of the pieces that stuck out to me include:

- A Transformers Animated piece, based on the classic X-Men "Days of Future Past" cover.
- Custom Animated Robots in Disguise Car Brothers
- Animated Rodimus Primes - both of them
- A Beast Wars Squirrel!
- A very cool movieverse styled Laptop Transformer.
- An awesome piece based on Ninjaka from Generation 1 Season 3.
- Classics styled Omega Spreem!
- Cybertronian mode Jazz

But really and truly, all the entries were excellent this year, and it would be an injustice to only recognize these ones. Be sure to check out all the images attached to this post for some of the best art and custom work I've seen at a Transformers convention.

Also by way of a special shoutout, attached to the end of this story are some images of a custom set not in the contest. They are the Wreckers, designed by the customizers of Cybertron.CA to be sold in a charity auction will all proceeds going to Fallen Heroes. Not only is this an example of some truly excellent workmanship and customizing, but it is also all for a very good cause. Be sure to check them out as well - they are the last images in this gallery.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A new Dark of the Moon toy has been released at US retail (sighted in San Antonio TX) and this time it's at TRU. The Cyberverse Cybertronian Warriors set has crept out without much announcement or fanfare. Mentioned at Botcon, this set consists of redecos of Bumblebee with the Mobile Command Bunker, Commander Ironhide, Crankcase and Ironhide. It is the set that has a little fun with the fact that one of the Bumblebee cars had an accident with a cop during the filming of Dark of the Moon. The price is reported to be a whopping $40 plus tax though making this one a pricey bit of Transformers fun to own.
