In case you missed it with Transformers #36 last week, and are not able to get it with MTMTE #36 this week, IDW artist Alex Milne has shared his double-cover for the 30th Anniversary of the Transformers - and explained just how much time and effort went into it. Check it out below!


Here is my 30th Anniversary cover which was broken up between both issue 36 of MTMTE and (formally RID)

Originally when I created this image, it was for a totally different project that had something to do with the 30th anniversary, but wasn’t part of the homage covers that others had done. This is why the original date of the penciled image is 2013. I had planned to finish it on my own if it wasn’t going to get used and make a print out of it, but the time i needed wasn’t available, so it just sat in one of my portfolio’s. That was until I was asking if there were any 30th covers I could do and John Barber asked about using this image. This was perfect since I didn’t have to draw a new image up and I could finish this one I had already penciled.
looking back on it I might have changed a few characters for different ones, but this was before Windblade had come out.

There are 30 characters on this image. 30 for 30. I thought that would be nice. All of these characters are from the comics and are from comics IDW has printed. I guess I could have added in some Unicron Trilogy characters, but alas it did not happen.

The colours were done by the very talented Mr. Josh Perez who I enjoy working with and miss doing so on a more regular basis. Maybe one day we will work on a whole book together again :)

Enjoy :)

TF Yuki has posted new images of Legends Leader Class Jetfire, both in and out of packaging, and even some with his old frenemy Starscream! A news submission from Seibertron.com board member Cyberpath has pointed us in the direction of Yuki's Twitter, where these new pictures originate, and we've mirrored them here.

Takara Tomy's version of Jetfire has all of the chrome removed and has painted weapon barrels, which is great for those fans who didn't want the chrome on the US release. To compare the two figures, take a look at Yuki's images below and then check out the US Jetfire by clicking here to see our gallery of Hasbro's Leader Jetfire. (Might as well check out our gallery of Classics Starscream, while you're there.)

Package of "LG07 Jet Fire" will be released the end of the month, has been packaged in other items as well vehicle mode of series. The silhouette of jet mode that is visible from the package window, mind you dance it ♪

Here's a bit of a treat, with a charitable cause, for all Transformers comics fans. Artist and general godfather of the Cybertronian aesthetics for the past 30 years, Andrew Wildman, has collected the signatures of Bob Budiansky, José Delbo, Simon Furman, Geoff Senior, Lee Sullivan, Stephen Baskerville, Andrew Wildman, Guido Guidi, Nick Roche, Jason Cardy, John Paul Bove and Casey Collier - all on the Guidi after Sienkiewicz cover for IDW's ReGeneration One! He is auctioning off 30 of these special issues, with the profits going to help comics creator and first Transformers writer Bill Mantlo. So head over to eBay, bid your savings, do some good, and own a part of robot history.

It's finally happening. The auction of the exclusive, signed Transformers Regeneration One comics. There are 30 copies (it's the 30th anniversary) of issue 100. This is the release with the 'issue 1 homage cover' by artist, Guido Guidi and all the books are signed by a host of Transformers creators. A real who's who list.
What is really important about this auction is that all the proceeds will go to help Bill Mantlo. One of Marvel's writers who was responsible for some of their greatest titles. Not only did he create Rocket Raccoon but he was the first writer on the Transformers book. Bill was involved in an accident in the 90's and requires constant care. This is our way of saying thanks to him for his contribution to one of the worlds biggest franchises.
Check out the auction below and share with... everyone.

The Age of Extinction isn't over yet, as concept artist Emiliano Santalucia returns with another blog post, this time looking at some ideas and art behind the fourth Transformers film. This is the first of a number of potential posts, depending on Hasbro, but read on below and here for a look at a behind the scenes art for the final battle in the movie.

Just a couple of months ago I received approval on showing at least one piece of the work I did for Transformers Age of Extinction movie.
This is one of the craziest piece I did for the fourth Transformers movie and it was a lot of fun to work on.I did it under the direction of the mighty Aaron Archer who gave me a ton of details to fit into one single image.
I started with a couple of simple composition/mood studies, and then went into the full rendering.

Editorial Vision, Shakespearean Power Plays, and Giant Robots with John Barber

Wanting more this week in terms of Transformers fiction? Why not take a read at this lengthy interview with John Barber on WeeklyComicBookReview, editor and writer at IDW on at least, oh, all of the current series featuring robots, including those yet to come. Some snippets below, full piece here! [Note: Thumbnail is RI cover for Transformers #35, by Andrew Griffith. Fitting, non?]

Already well respected for his nearly Quixotic attempts to bring sanity to the Transformers movie continuity, John Barber’s tenure over IDW’s mainline Transformers comics has been viewed as something of a renaissance period for the brand.

Besides writing a tense sci-fi political thriller in the form of Transformers: Robots in Disguise, Barber has also served as the editor of the award-winning Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye as well as the Transformers: Windblade mini-series. Since then he’s added even more to his plate by writing Angry Birds Transformers and co-writing the latest Transformers vs. G.I. Joe series.

As the man behind one of my favorite shared universes in comics, I’ve been eager to meet Mr. Barber for some time. Little did I know how deep we’d get into the current Transformers line-up.

Mr. Barber was incredibly gracious with his time and considerable knowledge so please enjoy and, if so inclined, check out the newly renamed The Transformers #35, on sale today!

[...]

N: One thing that I was definitely curious about is that one of the weird figures for IDW in Transformers has been Galvatron, in that you couldn’t fall back on a G1 interpretation.

B: Yeah.

N: But so he was kind of Nova Prime’s Starscream for a while and then he kind of had this very ‘glorious leader against D-Void’ period. What made you settle on ‘Galvatron the Barbarian’ for your take?

B: I was kind of intrigued by the story that Simon [Furman] had set up of these characters being of a different age, y’know? These people that were there, that took off on the original Ark? I just kind of latched onto this idea of, ‘what was society like before they had the Golden Age?’ For me, it went back to doing the Robots in Disguise Annual and I had this idea of like Game of Thrones with Transformers, of this idea of these different tribes. And I played with that actually a bit in the movie universe stuff, but it was different in the main line stuff.

And Galvatron was one of those characters, kind of like Soundwave, where even within the IDW universe different writers had radically different takes on where he was. So, thinking about how you can sort of unify those, what kind of person would do all that stuff? And I came to the idea of ‘what if Galvatron’s kind of Conan’ and you had this guy who’s kind of really a rough guy, really a barbarian, but who becomes king?

“Galvatron was one of those characters where different writers had radically different takes. So, thinking about how you can sort of unify those, what kind of person would do all that stuff?”

I mean the story of Conan isn’t just Conan the Barbarian. There’s all these eras of Conan as he goes on; he eventually is King Conan. And the idea that Galvatron kind of went through all that, so he’s been different places in his life, appealed to me. And, in [issue #34] we’ll get kind of a larger grasp of how those early days with him and Nova functioned. We’ll be seeing some stuff, that I think may be surprising to some people, that we sort of hinted at. There’re definitely some hints that have been going on, but some of the ancient Cybertronian lore and history is gonna come up.

But, in short, it’s kind of the idea of this guy who, in his own mind, he’s noble, but it isn’t the usual nobility you get from a villain because he’s really, really brutal and he’s- he’s- like he’s genuinely not a nice guy, y’know, where, Soundwave, to me, he’s the good guy Decepticon.

N: Yeah.

B: Like he’s the guy that genuinely believes in the Decepticon cause and everything they had to do that was bad was a compromise that he had to make to a greater end goal, where Galvatron isn’t like that. He’s less compromising, but much more brutal and, like, the underlying…like-

N: He doesn’t feel like a guy who’s like thinking very much into the future.

B: Yeah. Like he does in his way. So, there are moments where you’re going to see him kind of doing stuff toward a larger goal, but it’s a very distinct, direct barbarian way of doing it. He’s not doing the Machiavellian playing guys off of each other the way Starscream does. Even when he does like straight up lie, his duplicity is a little more honest.

[...]

Just taking a step aside from Robots in Disguise for a second, I was just curious. You are not only a writer, but you’re an editor for IDW.

B: Yes.

N: As someone with that very unique experience, what do you think that -whether it be professionals, aspiring, anywhere in the process – what do you think that writers need to know about editors and editors need to know about writers? You have seen both sides.

B: That’s a good question. Ideally, everybody’s out to make a good comic. And there are good fits with writers and editors, y’know?

It’s funny because I have friends on both sides of the table. So, every once in a while you’ll sort of hear somebody, a friend of mine, complaining about, y’know, that editor didn’t work out. Then there’ll be people who are having a great relationship with that editor. So it’s like any other relationship in life. There are fits and there are non-fits.

When you’re putting a creative team together for a comic, it’s sort of like putting a band together, y’know? Like everybody has to get along. You have to know what parts everybody’s playing and what everybody’s doing. On the Transformers books we’re really lucky, everybody gets along really well, I think, between James, me, Mairghread, Chris Metzen, Flint Dille, plus like Alex Milne, Andrew, Livio, Sarah, everybody; we all interact really well.
