IDW May 2013 Transformers Solicitations

Motto: "The Wreckers. Weird brain bullets. Impossible odds... It doesn't get much better than this."
Weapon: Sniper Rifle
Courtesy of IDW Publishing, we have information for the upcoming comics that will be released in the month of May. First up are our returnees, Robots In Disguise and More Than Meets The Eye with their 17th issues, alongside Regeneration One with #11. We have a new series, aptly named Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters, and the latest spotlight, Hoist. Lastly, the paperbacks for Transformers Prime: Rage of the Dinobots and Regeneration One Vol. 2.


TRANSFORMERS SPOTLIGHT: HOIST

James Roberts (w), Agustin Padilla(a), Padilla, Livio Ramondelli (c)

FACE OFF! HOIST has always managed to fade into the background: until now. Trapped on an alien planet with a narcissist, half a scientist and a creature that may or may not turn into a catapult, the Lost Light's mild-mannered maintenance engineer must confront the five most dangerous DECEPTICONS ever.

32 pages, $3.99.

TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE #17

John Barber (w), Livio Ramondelli(a), Ramondelli, Casey Coller (c) SHOCKWAVES! The fate of Cybertron is sealed -- but what is the DECEPTICON scientist called SHOCKWAVE planning? After the stunning revelations in MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE, learn the origin of the one-eyed, gun-handed master of machinations... and the countdown begins for the biggest TRANSFORMERS event in comic book history.

32 pages, $3.99.

Image


TRANSFORMERS: MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE #17

James Roberts (w), Alex Milne(a), Milne, Sean Chen (c)

REMAIN IN LIGHT! MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE's first full-blown epic moves into high gear as RODIMUS leads his crew to the gates of heaven -- or hell. But larger forces are closing in and an ancient plan is reaching fruition -- and as an old friend calls time on the AUTOBOTS' quest, one thing becomes clear: the LEGISLATORS are on the march.Â

32 pages, $3.99.

TRANSFORMERS PRIME: BEAST HUNTERS #1

Mairghread Scott & Mike Johnson (w), Agustin Padilla (a), Ken Christiansen (c)

BEAST HUNTERS! They were there when CYBERTRON fell -- but what happened to the DINOBOTS for the past few thousand years? Here's a hint -- GRIMLOCK and company haven't been sitting around and relaxing! The time is now -- the place is CYBERTRON -- and the recipe is ACTION!

32 pages, $3.99.

TRANSFORMERS: PRIME - RAGE OF THE DINOBOTS

Mike Johnson & Mairghread Scott (w), Agustin Padilla (a), Ken Christiansen (c) The DINOBOTS hold the line as CYBERTRON falls! With OPTIMUS PRIME and the Ark long gone, the rest of the population makes their escape from the dying world–but SHOCKWAVE remains behind, continuing his experiments!

104 pages, $17.99.

Image

TRANSFORMERS REGENERATION ONE #91

Simon Furman (w), Andrew Wildman(a), Wildman, Guido Guidi (c)

THINGS FALL APART! The very fabric of the TRANSFORMERS' universe begins to unravel, as huge and ancient cosmic forces take note of CYBERTRON's (and the CYBERTRONIANS') descent into chaos and anarchy. As HOT ROD struggles to hold things together, still reeling from his own game-changing wake-up call, competing destructive forces inch closer to a cataclysmic confrontation. The end begins here.

32 pages, $3.99.

Image

TRANSFORMERS: REGENERATION ONE, VOL. 2

Simon Furman (w), Andrew Wildman (a & c)

The fallout from the devastation on Earth ripples outward, all the way to Nebulos, where GRIMLOCK faces his own dark demons and a fateful choice that may cost him his very Spark. The dark reign of SCORPONOK begins here, and nothing will ever be the same again! Collects issues #86-90.

128 pages, $19.99.

MORE DINOBOTS!!! This is great news and keeps my hopes of seeing new Dinobot figures alive! I will definitely be following this comic series. :KREMZEEK:

Also, this seems to strongly indicate that we'll see the Dinobots, or at least Grimlock, in TFP Beast Hunters! Anybody else thinking the same? :D

So they're actually following up with Shockwave's surprising origin and tying it into Robots in Disguise? And it's leading to some big event Shockwave presumably has a hand in?

Sorry, Roberts, but I'm gonna read what Barber's up to for a change.

So it's 100% certainty that ReGen will stop at #100. :( I was hoping it would be successful enough to become an ongoing series.

So is the Prime Beast Hunters comic supposed to be a sort of sequel to Rage of the Dinobots? Where would it take place? Still in the ancient past after the RotD mini? In the present day near the cartoon's time? Somewhere in between?

It was always meant to end at 100 because it was made to be the untold final chapter of the original Marvel Comics run. So, in a way, it already is an ongoing, just the very end part of one.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

Yay! Generations Hoist figure coming our way. It's taken Hasbro long enough, but they're finally coming good. :BOWDOWN:

Oh...I just posted in another thread saying I didn't think that green robot on the Metroplex box was Hoist, but looking at this cover it looks like it is indeed Hoist, and highly likely we will get a figure.

Lots of Dinobot Covers, yet no Toyfair announcements of more Dino figures???? I'm predicting a botcon or SDCC announcement for Dinos?

Maybe the other 4 FOC Dinos packaged with the 4 Rage of the Dinobots comics???

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
I thought only the Spotlights were going to include Deluxe size figures.
I don't think we've heard anything about other titles having their own figures too.

But I may be wrong!

Agreed. Any other cover is going to look like crap that month by comparison.
