Fembots are few and far between in the Transformers universe, even more so in toy form, so when Windblade was announced, fans eagerly anticipated even just the slightest of info. With her creation being the result of fan input via poll, we've waited and waited for her release and because we helped bring her into the TF universe, the wait's been difficult. Now after all of this time we're finally getting close to seeing her in hand, but until she hits stores, reviews and more pictures will have to tide us over.

A review is what we have for you today. Seibertron message board member Optibotimus has filmed a review of Generations Deluxe Class Windblade and you can see it by clicking the embed below:

In an article published on the comics section of the LA Times, IDW Publishing founder Ted Adams and chief editor Chris Ryall talk about the company, where it started and how it got to be what it is now, 15 years after its creation. And the Transformers show up too! Check out the whole interview here, and some relevant robotic snippets below.

The metamorphosis into a major independent player was complete when IDW won comics command of an army of robots in disguise.

“It sounds very trite to say it this way, but the one that really feels transformative to the company is when we started doing the Transformers,” said Chris Ryall, IDW Publishing’s chief creative officer and editor in chief, who joined in 2004 and helped land the license the next year.

“People were going, ‘Wait a second, who is this little company in San Diego that was suddenly awarded this giant licensed property?’” Ryall said, noting that IDW won franchise creator Hasbro’s bidding process over larger and older publishers. This summer’s blockbuster movie “Transformers: Age of Extinction” included a character, Drift (voiced by Ken Watanabe), created in the company’s comics.

The editor, who has seen IDW’s monthly slate grow from about 10 titles a month to 60-70 titles a month in his decade at the company, and Adams both noted that, whether it’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” or “Godzilla” or “Star Trek,” the company doesn’t pursue licenses unless it has people on staff who are already fans of the franchises.

[...]

Digital ventures are bringing people who rediscover comics on iPads and smartphones back into comic book stores, Adams said, citing anecdotal evidence and financial statements from IDW and other publishers that show print and digital revenues growing together over the last couple years. The company also is reaching out to kids in such stores as Target and Toys R Us with Micro Comic Fun Packs for its “My Little Pony” and “Transformers” titles that include sticker sheets and the like – an effort Adams said has been a hit, with more titles, including “Skylanders,” lined up.

The End, Pt. 1
(Spoiler free-ish)



Synopsis
PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER ONE! WINDBLADE seeks out the last refuge she has left, the living city METROPLEX as his malfunctions intensify! WINDBLADE realizes that even if she survives STARSCREAM, METROPLEX himself may doom them all!

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Windblade #4 (Dawn of the Autobots) Review
Recap? Recap


Story

And so we've had explosions, more explosions, scheming, Predacons, bar scenes, torture scenes, world building, a fantabulous Starscream and so far, a plot that does not seem to want to resolve itself in any way that may have been indicated by writer Mairghread Scott up until this very moment - does it pay off? Is this final issue in Windblade's story, for now at least, a satisfying conclusion? Keep on reading...

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Windblade #4 (Dawn of the Autobots) Review
Evidence A: Fantabulous Starscream


Scott writes some magnificent Starscream narrative, alongside Windblade and Chromia's - the latter in particular, especially in this issue - and how the three key players interact on the grand scale stage of Metroplex, Iacon and Cybertron.. and maybe even further than that, as we find out more about Caminusand the Camiens, Metroplex himself, and some continuity-bending that would make Barber blush.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Windblade #4 (Dawn of the Autobots) Review
Evidence B: REDACTED


The plot throws us some bones, which turn out to be herrings, of the red kind, pointing in all the possible wrong directions before establishing and setting up the actual endpoint to the story started in issue 1 - which is not actually the end of the issue at all. Of course, the actual clues were there all along, and quite in plain sight, looking back.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Windblade #4 (Dawn of the Autobots) Review
The Reveal


I'm obviously not going to spoil the climax and denouement, but I do have to say that while the apex of the running plot itself was, in fact, almost anti-climactically played out, everything - everything - else happening around it is so astoundingly powerful that it more than made up for it! (So much so I just used an exclamation mark.) But more on that below.

Art

I'm not entirely sure what more I can say about Sarah Stone's artwork that I haven't commented upon in the first three reviews. But this issue does highlight what it is I really truly enjoyed in this début run for the new artist: her characters' expressions. We get anger, concentration, satisfaction, smugness, despair, hope - we get rounded personalities captured in linework, by way of faces, bodies and interactions.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Windblade #4 (Dawn of the Autobots) Review
Evidence C: Intense


All of that is before you even consider the excellent layouts and panelwork, with some truly experimental, slightly non-linear (dat final page), but not bordering into abstract just yet, pages, splashes and spreads. Then you get the colours. And the contrasts of light, of monochromatic blocks versus all-white or all-black backgrounds - something showed off on the cover, too.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Windblade #4 (Dawn of the Autobots) Review
Evidence D: Words, panels, revel


Tom B. Long's lettering does some masterfully crafted complementary work to the already great artwork, rendering Scott's sounds and words vividly on the page and in characters' heads and voices, and beautifully fitting between Stone's lines, with fonts, hues, colours and fading effects alike. And just to keep us guessing, two Phil Jimenez and Romulo Fajardo Jr covers, one with Windblade, one with Chromia (see thumbnail).


Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

A truly magnificent ending to what is clearly, obviously, just the beginning of a long long story to unfold in the Transformers universe, from MTMTE to Primacy to Empire of Stone to RID - where we'll see Windblade again not too far in the future - which, as I said, if it does tone down the plot resolution, it does so by amping up absolutely everything else, with a personal reaction that hit as far as Soundwave's arc in RID, or the C/R one in MTMTE.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Windblade #4 (Dawn of the Autobots) Review
Evidence E: AMPING UP


Sometimes, as a comics reader, one should just revel in the pure aesthetic, sensory pleasure of a book as object, of the colours as feeling, of the story as layout, of the words as sounds. This comic has allows all of that, and sets up something so big it will make several people complain. But I, and I suspect many many more, do not care. At all.

Yet another exhibition celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Transformers franchise, and this time we're in South Korea! Check out below more information about the public event, running until October 10th in Dongdaemun Design Plaza in Seoul, featuring life sized replicas, artwork and more.

Transformers News: Transformers 30th Anniversary Exhibition in Seoul


Transformers turns thirty this year, and to celebrate, relevant artifacts and props alike have come to Seoul.

An exhibition at the Dongdaemun Design Plaza features life sized Transformer robot favourites, such as Bumblebee and Optimus Prime, as well as Bumblebee's automobile counterpart. Splattered on the walls are giant pictures of the newest movie in the franchise "Transformers: Age of Extinction," and original art musings.

This showing arrives on the heels of the franchise's fourth movie, directed by Michael Bay. The film features fantastic cinematography, as well as ubiquitous advertising by both American and Chinese companies.

Transformers began as a Japanese toy, and the American company Hasbro picked it up. There are the good guys, the Autobots, and the bad guys, the Decepticons. Even at the toy stage, these two species of the same kingdom were always fighting for glory. These toys have spawned generations of spin-offs, including comic books, animated television shows, board games, and the wildly successful movie franchise that debuted in 2007.

The white walls of the Design Plaza prove fitting for this Transformers exhibit. Between the artwork, the pictures, and everything else on display, so much talent is present. This showcase will be available for public viewing until Oct. 10.
