Via a number of different sources, we have some behind the scenes tidbits concerning the Machinima Transformers: Combiner Wars animated short series, currently airing on go90 and the Machinima YouTube channel every week. The first is an interview with Amy Johnston, the voice of Maxima in episode 1 'The Fall', via ComicBookMovie. Snippet below, and full piece here!

CBM: How did you get involved with Combiner Wars?
Amy Johnston: "I got involved with Transformers: Combiner Wars through Bat in the Sun whom I had worked with previously on their show "Super Power Beatdown".

CBM: Were you a big Transformers fan growing up?
Johnston: "I have definitely been a Transformer's fan so when I found out about the role of Maxima I was super excited! How cool to have my own Transformer character! I love her!"

CBM: How did you find the right voice for Maximia?
Jonston: "Maxima was described to me as a strong female character who had a relationship wtih Windblade so I made sure to give her strength and passion yet retain a femininity about her."


The second is some further insight into the series with producer Eric Calderon, via ComicBook.com, discussing a number of aspects on the creation of the characters, their interactions and the story as a whole. Full piece here, and a selection below!

Is there a challenge that's inherent to doing something like this? When you look at web series, you have a lot of like "Okay, we just grew up this property that you like" and it's mostly played for laughs. Is there a challenge to doing this seriously and not feeling like another kind of web series that's trying to take a fun?

The great thing is, both Machinima and Hasbro, they have never used that word with me. They said "You are making a series." They always put it at a higher level, and the show is budgeted, and distributed in a very sophisticated way, that to me, is not like a webseries at all.

So I think about this as an adaptation, I just go "Hey, it's my job as a creator to make the best work I can" and I don't think about "Oh it's only for this category so let's have fun", I want to tell this combiner wars story, and I'm going to tell it in 40 minutes. That's almost a movie, so I really treat it like that. There's act breaks, there's a solid structure to the character development, there's resolution. That's what I'm worried about.

We have a tentative date for the Transformers: Sins of the Wreckers TPB from IDW Publishing, from the duocon team of Nick Roche and Josh Burcham, as August 24th (though mileage may vary, of course) and Roche has shown some sneaky peeks at what might be found inside the collected book, plus the cover blurb by some comics guy called Kieron Gillen (note: I am being facetious). If you haven't picked up the single issues, this is definitely a must - if you have, it's a must nonetheless. Check it out!

Got the PDF for the #SinsOfTheWreckers TPB. 100 pgs of story. *30* pgs of extras/covers. Take a bow, Alonzo Simon & @IDWjustin, @MowryChris

IDW have put together an AMAZING extras package for the collected #SinsOfTheWreckers. 15 pages of stuff like THIS.

And that's the coverage the background characters get. Loads of process thoughts and images for the main cast. Please order your copy!

The #SinsOfTheWreckers TPB is a process junkie's dream. As much as there is about the artwork, there's TONS of info about its writing.

Several fans have wanted to remind us, and we would love to remind the whole Seibertron.com and Transformers community, that today - July 28th - is the 75th birthday of one of the staples of the Transformers franchise in its fictional incarnations: Mr Optimus Prime himself, Peter Cullen!

Transformers News: Seibertron.com Wishes a Happy 75th to Peter Cullen


Canadian-born, Cullen grew up not far from news staffer william-james88 in Montreal, and joined the ranks of the numerous voice acting talents on the 1980s via Voltron, Knight Rider, Winnie the Pooh, G.I. Joe and many more series - but really rose to prominence as the leader of the Autobots in The Transformers. Returning to this role in 2007 with the Michael Bay/Paramount live-action series based on the Cybetronians, he fully took up the character again in Transformers Prime, Robots in Disguise, and the various videogames of the franchise, including the latest mobile incarnation, Transformers: Earth Wars.

Transformers News: Seibertron.com Wishes a Happy 75th to Peter Cullen


Cullen has also had a small cameo as Optimus' holomatter driver in Alex Milne's artwork in the comics, and as narrator for a NASA clip and one of the first humans to be introduced to the Hasbro/BotCon Hall of Fame in 2010.

Transformers News: Seibertron.com Wishes a Happy 75th to Peter Cullen


The staff of Seibertron.com would like to send its best wishes to Mr Cullen, and hope the celebrations are fitting a man of his impact upon popular culture since the 1980s. Have a good one, sir!

Via a number of social media platforms, including Facebook and Instagram, for Transformers: The Last Knight, we got a live video (still available now though) of director Michael Bay, and actors Jerrod Carmichael and Mark Wahlberg getting ready to shoot a scene in what looks to be a makeshift hospital or hostel on the Detroit set. Wahlberg in particular seems to have had more than enough, while Bay and Carmichael are still quite filled with energy - check it out embedded below!

Ever wanted to watch Michael B. Bay, Mark Wahlberg and Jerrod Carmichael film a scene? Now you can. We're live from set in downtown Detroit. ‪#‎transformers‬



IDW Transformers Post-Revolution - Barber, Scott and Roberts Interview

Sometimes news slips a little through the net, especially during events like San Diego Comic Con - but as we covered on the Seibertron.com stream for the IDW Publishing panel (check it out again here), ComicsAlliance also went a little further with the three Transformers scribes on the future of the current ongoings post-Revolution event: John Barber, Mairghread Scott and James Roberts!

As we said, a lot was known, but there are some extra tidbits in the interview - which you can read in full here - that may have been missed during the panel. Take a look below!

Transformers News: IDW Transformers Post-Revolution - Barber, Scott and Roberts Interview


ComicsAlliance: Since it’s the one that’s set on Earth, it seems like the post-Revolution combined universe is probably going to affect your book more than the others. How do you go about integrating the history of the Transformers on Earth into all of those disparate stories?

John Barber: In a macro sense, the GI Joe comic hasn’t really delved into the deep history of Earth and of the universe the way Transformers has, so there’s not a whole lot of back-time that’s irreconcilable. There were big Earth-shattering events that have happened in Transformers, and to a lesser degree, in GI Joe, so maybe there’s some squinting that needs to be done to make it all fit, but… I mean, we don’t name-check real-world tragedies in the comics with a great regularity. That doesn’t mean those tragedies didn’t happen, or wouldn’t have impacted the characters, it just doesn’t necessarily come up in the midst of a story focused on tracking down Tomax or Galvatron or whatever.


[...]

CA: With Ore-13 being such a big part of major Transformers stories like “Dark Cybertron,” is this something that’s been planned for the past few years, or did it just line up that way as something that could be mixed into the larger universe?

JB: That’s a complicated one to answer… Ore-13 is why the Transformers are on Earth. Ore-13 is on Earth because Shockwave put it there. Shockwave put it there (on Earth specifically) because, it seems, Galvatron (inadvertently) crashed the Enigma of Combination on Earth — the Enigma is a super-ancient Cybertronian relic.

So, what that all means is, going forth from “All Hail Optimus,” Ore-13 was playing a role. Revolution sort of focuses that a little tighter, and it made sense to highlight it thematically because it was something Simon and E.J. planted right from the beginning of Transformers comics at IDW, which was the beginning of IDW’s relationship with Hasbro.

So, it’s not like we did “Dark Cybertron” knowing inevitably that three years later we’d have Revolution, but the function of Ore-13 didn’t really change that much.


Transformers News: IDW Transformers Post-Revolution - Barber, Scott and Roberts Interview


CA: Considering that More Than Meets The Eye has taken place almost entirely in the far reaches of space, will the restructuring of the post-Revolution universe affect your story, James? Will one of those side-quests take your crew to Earth at some point soon?

James Roberts: Well, MTMTE gets in on the action with a Revolution tie-in featuring the Scavengers, who are kind of the alternative main cast. That’s an Earth-based story. Nick Roche and I are co-writing for the first time since 2010’s Last Stand of the Wreckers, so even if we weren’t getting an opportunity to pit the world’s worst Decepticons against the likes of MASK and GI Joe, it would still feel like an event for us.

Post-Revolution, there are no plans for the main MTMTE cast to travel to Earth… but then that’s unsurprising, considering the situation they find themselves in at the end of MTMTE #55, which marks the end of what we’re calling the Season 2 finale, ‘The Dying of the Light.’

The post-Revolution universe is just that, though — a universe. And there are opportunities, should I wish to take them, to play around in the new, enlarged sandpit even though, as you say, the Lost Light and its crew are far away from Earth.

[...]

Season 3, as it plays out in the pages of Lost Light, is going to take everybody in some very strange directions. The quest for the Knights is going to much more at the forefront than it has been to date. There’s an urgency about it now that perhaps wasn’t there before. Different characters — and I’d being careful not to give anything away, because who knows who we’ll be focusing on in the future — will find themselves weighing up their loyalties and their priorities as we start to turn our attention, in small but significant ways, to the end of the quest.


Transformers News: IDW Transformers Post-Revolution - Barber, Scott and Roberts Interview


CA: Chronicling political machinations and culture clash through the medium of robots that turn into cars seems like a tricky proposition, but it’s something that’s been at the center of the Transformers books set on Cybertron for quite a while now. How do you approach it to make it work without seeming silly — or at least, unintentionally silly?

MS: Science fiction has always been a place to talk about human issues that are a bit too touchy to explore with actual human characters. Police brutality, political and religious extremism, government corruption and overreach, bigotry, poverty, crime, these are all things our readers are confronted with every day. To act like Transformers, who are so like us, wouldn’t face the same challenges is disingenuous to the characters. To act like our book is supposed to teach some kind of set morality to our readers is disingenuous to our readers.

Instead we’re trying to build interesting, exciting stories that are real enough to feel like they matter without getting too bogged down in the ‘realness’ of any actual event. Turning into cars and planes is just as big a part of our characters as anything else. And it’s fun! There’s no reason to get rid of it just so we can feel “ripped from the headlines!”

That’s why an artist like Sara Pitre-Durocher is so critical to TAAO. She brings a humanity to our characters that lets our readers decide for themselves what the “right thing” is. But she also draws amazing action that keeps you turning the page. We want you to get an exhilarating story in every issue of Transformers: Till All Are One. If after you put it down, you think back to it when something happens in real life, so much the better.
