Once again, long-standing Transformers artist Andrew Wildman celebrates the end of ReGeneration One and the 30th Anniversary of the Transformers with his own spin. Starting Monday 21st April, he will be auctioning 30 issues of the convention variant cover for issue #100 of IDW Transformers: ReGeneration One, especially to reach non-UK fans or those who cannot attend conventions as easily, and each copy will come with a sketch of one of six characters! Check out below, or head to his blog, for more information.

Transformers News: Andrew Wildman Auctions 30 Transformers: Regeneration One #100 Special Variant Covers with Sketch


Beginning on Easter Day will be an eBay listing to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Transformers.

I am Bagging and Boarding 30 copies of the Convention Variant cover of Transformers Regeneration One #100. Each of the backing boards will have a sketch on the back. The 30 issues will be divided into 6 releases of five. There will be five sketches of Optimus Prime. Five sketches of Megatron - ya get the idea- then Ultra Magnus, Galvatron. Rodimus Prime and Bludgeon. The Optimus Prime sketches begin on Easter Day at 8pm UK time and runs for seven days.

The idea behind this is to not only commemorate the 30th anniversary but to enable those who can't get to UK conventions that I am attending to be able to get a copy of the comic and a sketch. Those of you who have seen me at conventions know that I do sketches but there are, needless to say, many Transformers and comic conventions that I won't be at. Below are the five Optimus Prime sketches that constitute this release. It's pot luck as to which bidder will get which sketch but that's part of the fun.

Transformers News: Andrew Wildman Auctions 30 Transformers: Regeneration One #100 Special Variant Covers with Sketch

As you will see below I have decided to donate all the proceeds from the fifth winning bidder to the Make-A-Wish foundation. this is my favourite charity and the one that we support as Draw The World Together. Anyone not familiar with the activities of DtWT click the link and take a look. We don’t have a lot of time or facility to do much with DtWT these days so it is nice to be able to raise a bit of money for the charity.

So. set your alarm for the start of the bid and cross your fingers.

The free, officially endorsed by Hasbro Brazil exhibition will run from 17th April to 4th May, featuring a 'tunnel of time' with figures from the past thirty years of our favourite transforming robots iterations, as well as giant Bumblebee, Grimlock, Megatron and Optimus Prime statues and cut-outs.

Quite a while back we reported on Chester Bennington of Linkin Park claiming that it 'made total sense' for the band to be working on Transformers: Age of Extinction, seeing their past relationship with the previous films. In a recent episode of Tweet Out, on Geek Nation, however, band member and director Joe Hahn was asked whether Linkin Park will be working with Steve Aoki on the movie, and gave an ambiguously negative response. Does this mean they won't be returning? Will Imagine Dragons take over for the first installment of the Transformers new trilogy? Or does it just mean they will not be collaborating with Aoki, but still feature? Check out the answer in the embebbed video below (06:25) and speculate away in the Energon Pub!

We mentioned a while back that Andrew Wildman, who had already posted part of his thoughts on the end of IDW Publishing's Transformers: ReGeneration One, would go back to them, and expand. Now, on his blog, he has done just that! Check out the unedited version of the afterword present in the book itself, in the way in which Wildman first wrote it below, and head to his blog for even more amazing work.

Some of you may have heard the Transmissions Podcast where - among many other things - they discuss Transformers Regeneration One #100. Its always interesting to hear what readers and aficionados make of the work one does. They really get under the skin of the whole issue with story, art etc. They mention right at the end that I am going to be saying more about my thoughts and feelings around Transformers. And I will. As much as they discuss the content of the book and also acknowledge the fact that we all had a chance to say something in the extra pages that the book had, they don't discuss what we said. Maybe at some point they may or maybe that will be covered elsewhere. For those of you who have not read any of that extra material, below is my piece. Slightly different from what you will have read in the book though. This is the unedited piece. Hasbro asked for some changes to be made to what I had written before it went to publication. Some of you may spot them. I am happy with the changes that they asked for but I thought it might be interesting to show exactly what I wrote, grammatical errors and all...
As you will see, as far as I am concerned it is all very great to read, enjoy and discuss all the events of the story but with Transformers there is definitely More Than Meets The Eye.

It Never Ends?

There we are then. That’s it. All done and dusted.

It seems amazing that we ever got to this point. This comic book that has - in one form or another - been there for so long. As many of you will know I first drew Transformers back in the dim and distant 1988. at the time I was working on whatever anyone was throwing at me. I was young(ish) and had a growing family to feed. At that time Transformers was just another paid gig. It very rapidly became more than that as it became the thing that opened to the door to Marvel Comics. Once in that door Transformers suddenly became a victim of Marvel’s decision to not do toy books anymore. No matter, I was in and had the opportunity to move through the ranks at Marvel and the pleasure of working on some of the characters that I had grown up with such as Spider-Man and the X-Men. Those jobs came and went but after all these years it is still Transformers that comes knocking at the door. When something is that insistent and becomes for many the thing that defines you it is always worth having a look under the hood. See what’s really there. What is it about this book that it seems to have attached itself to me?

Then I saw it;

When IDW asked me if I wanted to do some interior art for a Transformers book I said no. When they asked me what it would take to get me to do some interior art for a Transformers book I pondered the question and responded that I would only do it if I could work with Simon and if we could have the opportunity to do something that really had some weight to it. Out of this and Simon’s parallel conversations with IDW the idea for RegenerationOne was born.

I am going to break the flow here to give out a few acknowledgments. We have gathered a great team together for this journey. Guido has done a great job stepping in when I had to step away, JP Bove’s interior colours have perfectly captured that synthesis of being a bit like the old stuff but definitely new and fresh and I think now stand alongside the amazing Mr Nel Yomtov for the amount of uninterrupted output of pages. Jason Cardy’s cover colours have given cinematic impact that have pulled readers in like a movie poster outside your favorite multiplex. Stephen Baskerville, what can I say. A consummate professional. No matter what I throw at Stephen he unfailingly does his thing and makes these books look the way they ‘should’. As for the words, well a huge acknowledgment to Jim Shooter and Bob Budiansky for creating this beast. Without them we wouldn’t be here. We may well be creating a book about battling robots but for sure it wouldn’t be this one. And lastly, Simon Furman. My long time partner in crime. The man who not only brought me into the Transformers hold but who, as a result of that opened the door to many a subsequent opportunity. Thanks Mr F, my acknowledment and respect to you.



So there we were. The idea to finally complete the Transformers story was not only an opportunity but a privilege. What needs to really be gotten here is that this book is the conclusion of the definitive Transformers storyline. Let me just emphasise that. THIS book is THE CONCLUSION of THE DEFINITIVE TRANSFORMERS STORYLINE. It is not possible to over emphasise that. Back in 1983 something huge that has become part of popular culture began. At Marvel Comics Jim Shooter and Bob Budiansky wrote a treatment for Transformers. There was nothing before that other than some ill defined toys. That treatment became the Marvel Transformers book and that storyline - the definitive one - fell silent in 1991, reared its head again in 2012 and the no kidding, final conclusion of that whole storyline is what you now hold in your hands.

But what really makes this concept resonate and give it its longevity is the fact that this is NOT a book about robots. quite the opposite. The term 'robot' was first used in the 1921 play ‘R.U.R. Rossum's Universal Robots’ by the Czech writer, Karel Čapek. But these were human clones devoid of emotion. Transformers are if anything the opposite of that. They are sentient beings. They may be mechanical in their structure but they contain very human emotions and concerns. They are also from one source, The Matrix (later called The Allspark). This original singular source is what binds them and gives a unifying purpose to their lives. These themes are key to the popularity of Transformers in that it is an expression of much of what defines us as human beings. It has its roots in Hinduism, Buddhism, Enlightenment, Pantheism and subsequently many themes of Modern Philosophy. And that is what made me want to do this book. That is why we love it. A book about cool robots? yes, but about so much more. Its about us. About you and me. About the human condition. Its about separation, loss, pain, conflict and the pursuit of unification and oneness. Throughout its long life its always been there in that now familiar mantra; ‘Till All Are One’.

And here we finally are.



Namaste

Papercraft is a form of art in which beautiful and sometimes complex models are constructed out of nothing but some paper and tape (or glue). While the beginning may just seem like a bunch of pieces of cut paper, the end result however, can be breathtaking.

Papercraft can come from official sources, such as Takara Tomy, when they made a set of couches for their Arms Micron figures to sit on, which can be seen here. Or Takara Tomy's Energon cube insert for Masterpiece Soundwave, which can be seen here. Heck, they even made a trailer for their version of Weaponizer Optimus Prime in their Arms Micron line!

The Transformers Wars Papercraft book lets you buy models that are motorized and made to battle!

However, the magic really happens when the fans put their imaginations to good use and work outside the confines of corporate papercraft options and create something fun and awesome, such as the Chibi Jet Vehicons, which you can see here.

If you're looking for a masterpiece of Transformers papercraft, look no further!

A Facebook share from fellow TF fan Laurent Guelton to our Facebook page has revealed a beautiful work he created out of papercraft.

War For Cybertron Optimus Prime looks to be that papercraft masterpiece and even has articulated fingers! Started in 2011, this project has been a labor of love for Laurent and it's taken him nearly three years to make this happen. Not only is it now completed and he wants to share the showcase of his work, but he also included the files necessary for you to create your own!

I deliberately cut the model into several parts, for ease of viewing files during installation, but also a question of weight ... file textures are accurate, but suddenly it eats bytes!
The finished robot is about 40cm (15.75 inches) high. You can choose between hands for hinged wildest of you ... oops ... and simplified in the extreme (just 4 blocks) hands.


We've mirrored a few of the images and provided links to the files here, but we'd like for you to visit his blog to see the entire figure and read his post on how it all came to be.

As we've seen yesterday, Entertainment Weekly has had a chat with Michael Bay, getting some interesting information about the upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction movie being the first of a new trilogy (not a reboot - a new installment of three films). What we didn't mention is the fact that Bay also talked more about the still relatively enigmatic character of Lockdown and his ship. Read on below for the details, or head here for the full article!

It’s actually a Transformer who is neither Autobot or Decepticon, a bounty hunter named Lockdown, whose alternate form is a Lamborghini Aventador.

“Lockdown is an interesting character. He travels the galaxy, he works for somebody else. And he’s here for one person, one alien, and then he’s out of here,” Bay says. “So he doesn’t really want to take sides. The cause and balance of the galaxy is kind of messed up when different species play with different species. And that opens up a whole other gigantic world for Transformers.”

[...]

“Lockdown’s ship has a lot of meaning that can go into other movies. There’s a lot of backstory about that ship that’s not laid out here,” he says. “You’re going to see a few things where you’re like ‘What is that? And what is that?’ And you’re going to see a couple shots like, ‘Wait a minute, who are they?’ But we don’t answer those questions.”

Director Michael Bay, star Mark Wahlberg and co-star Jack Raynor took a moment to speak with Entertainment Weekly to discuss the film itself, what's new, what's changed/changing, and the article included a new image of Grimlock in action in the film.

This information was brought to us courtesy of the Transformers Live Action Movie Blog, and you can read the full article here: http://transformerslive.blogspot.com.tr ... .html#more

We've included some snippets below:

Bay: "It's kind of like a new Transformers. We had three, the first trilogy, and this is going to be the next. ...It's the first of a new trilogy. I'm not necessarily sure that I'm doing [the others], but that's what it's meant for."


Bay: "{Shia LaBeouf]'s a good guy, but three movies, the same guy, it's time. You know what I'm saying? It's always good to freshen it up and change the story."


Wahlberg: "[The government] basically want to wipe out all Transformers, all the Autobots. Optimus has lost all faith in humankind, and I'm trying to convince him there is still good in the world and we need to work together."


Reynor: "The first day I'm acting opposite a giant robot that's not there so that was something that took me out of my comfort zone. Probably the most outrageous thing we did was run through an incredible explosion. You can see it in the trailer. Everything around us blew up. Absolutely terrifying. But you don't really think of the terror until afterward. It's one of those things where you just run and all of your basic instincts as a human kick in. You get out on the other side of it and you feel like a different person, really."


Also of note, some specs on Grimlock, which we've also included below:

"150 feet long from the tail to the nostrils, 63.5 feet tall from the ground to the top of his horns, and weigh 850 tons."


And finally, the new Grimlock image:

Last week, we reported on a rumor that there were reshoots scheduled in LA, for AoE.

Today, we have confirmation: The reshoots are indeed happening and involve Mark Wahlberg and Optimus Prime. (vehicle mode, of course)

We've included a snippet of the article posted on the blog:

JustJared has posted a few images that show Mark Wahlberg and the Optimus Prime truck filming in Los Angeles on April 9. The use of the modern truck combined with Wahlberg's intact clothes and no wounds suggests that whatever is being filmed is for a sequence shot for scenes early in the movie and set in the United States.
