Voice actor extraordinaire and fellow Seibertronian jON3.0 has some exclusive news on the new Hasbro and Machinima collaboration for the animated series Transformers Combiner Wars! Thanks to their Youtube channel, we have our first official Trailer for Machinima's upcoming Combiner Wars show! The series will bring to screens the Windblade-centric story based on the work of John Barber and Mairghread Scott for IDW Publishing, and will see 9 episodes of 5 minutes each, featuring the talents of Jon Bailey, among many others. The new Trailer is a minute and a half, and shows off some of the actual animated footage from the show. If one looks closely, they would notice a sniper's scope, Computron and Menasor star again, and there are a fair bit of twists and turns to be found!
We bring to you tonight a pair of news stories regarding the ongoing Transformers: Robots In Disguise cartoon.
The first set of news revolves around a now removed instagram post from Tim Cahill, confirming a Fourth Season is in the works. a screen capture of the post can be found below, and if you look closely, you can see that Frank Welker, the voice of Megatron himself, is present in the picture! While this can only be treated as a rumor until actually confirmed, it appears that Welker is returning to Transformers once more.
The second set of news regards a certain voice actor returning to Transformers. Ian James Corlett, the voice of Beast Wars Cheetor, has announced his return to Transformers via Twitter and the convention panels at TFCon Toronto on Saturday. It has not been said who he would be voicing, but we should find out soon enough.
From Preview World we get another look into the upcoming Revolution storyline that is about to span several different IDW storylines, this time in the form of an interview with artist Fico Ossio, who will be the artist for the main Revolution titled comics, which will be released starting in September. Head to the site for the full interview by clicking the link above.
PREVIEWSworld: Tell us what you’re on point to do for Revolution. What creative chores have you accepted?
Fico Ossio: I´m doing pencils and ink. And I get to do the characters redesigns, for all the G.I. Joes. And I´m having the first crack at the M.A.S.K. vehicles, which is awesome. I used to own all the toys.
I took some liberties with the Transformers, as well as Action Man. It does all serve the purpose to have them all stand together and have a cohesive look.

Fresh news from IDW Publishing, as two new editorial positions have been announced, with Sarah Gaydos and Denton Tipton receiving promotions in their editor roles! For a Transformers-related part, though, we also know that John 'Continuity' Barber is leaving his current role, and remain as a writer on the titles he has already been confirmed for, plus a third yet to be revealed book, post-Revolution. Check out the press release below!
IDW Publishing Announces Editorial Shifts and Promotions
Editors Sarah Gaydos and Denton Tipton Promoted To Group Editor and Senior Editor
San Diego, CA (July 12, 2016) – IDW Publishing has promoted two of its key editorial staff members, Sarah Gaydos and Denton Tipton. Both will continue to report to Editor-in-Chief/Chief Creative Officer Chris Ryall.
Sarah has been promoted from Editor to the position of Group Editor. Sarah began her position at IDW in 2013 after six years of editing at DC/WildStorm. She has overseen the Star Trek and Disney lines to great success among other high profile titles including Cartoon Network’s Powerpuff Girls plus critically acclaimed creator-driven titles such as Satellite Falling. In her new role, she will take on various Hasbro licenses including Jem and the Holograms. She loves cats and burritos.
Denton has been promoted from Editor to the position of Senior Editor. A former journalist at the San Diego Union-Tribune as well as comics retailer, Denton joined IDW in 2008 and edits such series as X-Files, Dirk Gently, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Judge Dredd, Orphan Black, the upcoming Jim Thompson’s The Killer Inside Me, and more exciting projects yet to be announced. He loves dogs and Night Court reruns.
As part of these editorial shifts, IDW Publishing bids a fond farewell to Group Editor John Barber who previously edited Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye, Micronauts, and Jem and the Holograms. In addition, John has contributed as a writer to such titles as Transformers, Back to the Future, and the upcoming event series, Revolution. John will remain creatively involved with IDW, writing a secret project yet-to-be-unveiled that spins out Revolution.
“As much as we’re all sad to see John Barber leave his key editorial spot at IDW, the change does also provide the opportunity to advance Sarah and Denton in well-earned ways,” said IDW’s Chief Creative Officer Chris Ryall. “And it also means we’ll be seeing additional writing projects from John as well, which is another bit of good news for IDW. John is a key part of Revolution and the events that spin out of it, and he’ll continue to help steer this new direction on a couple titles we’re excited to be announcing at SDCC a little later this month.”
Some more pretty scraps of Machinima's Combiner Wars material to wait out until the next Prelude clip hits the interwebs, straight from the official Transformers Facebook page/Machinima YouTube and Twitter accounts: we take a look at Victorion, the protagonist of the second Prelude, in her character design, and in a brief talk with producer Eric Calderon about her novelty to the project.
