Ever since we learned that Lennox will be returning to the live action movies, everyone and anyone has expected Epps to join up with his partner-in-arms once more, and Tyrese Gibson has done us no favors with regards to him actually returning. In a Facebook post last night, he decided to throw us yet another bone but still won't confirm if he is in The Last Knight. But, it appears that he may be confirming something very soon. He posted an image of him in his gear from previous Transformers movies with the caption:

Tyrese Gibson wrote:3 guns - Not here o play any games with anybody /. ‪#‎TBT‬ I have some good news to share soon.......... Just know this.... I've seen everything you guys have posted about Epps..... I love you back!

James Roberts Talks: More Than Meets The Eye Future

James Roberts has decided to take to his favorite social media platform, Twitter, to discuss the future of More Than Meets The Eye with everyone who is willing and able to listen. After some extensive work quoting all his tweets, we bring to you all of his words regarding where MTMTE is going and what will become of it.

His biggest points are that MTMTE will continue the story uninterrupted, but the new numbering system will kick in for "season 3" meaning we will start all over again with #1. But the story will continue as normal, with only the numbering really changing. Also worth mentioning is that there is a special surprise that is to be revealed within the next couple of weeks that will take place before Season 3 begins but after the Titans Return crossover, which by the way features Prowl.

Ok folks, buckle in and prepare for a read:

James Roberts wrote:Alright, sit down, I need to talk about the future of #MTMTE.

After Dying of the Light, which finishes next issue (#55), there’s a two-part story that ties into the Titans Return crossover.

The Titans Return one-shot, out next month, is by @MairghreadScott, @TheJohnBarber and me. It feeds into exRiD 56 and 57 and MTMTE 56 and 57

MTMTE #56 + #57, set on Luna 1, star Red Alert, Max… and Prowl. We’ve come full circle: he was there at the start, he’s there at the end.

Because MTMTE #57 is the last issue of the series in its current form. But wait! The *story* doesn’t end. Season 3 kicks off in the autumn.

There will be a new #1. It will be a jumping on point, but it will also be a thumping great CONTINUATION. I went there. CAPS LOCK, baby.

Some people have said they’ll walk away after #57, to which I’d say… please, don’t do that. If you do that, you’ll never know how it ends.

Maybe, instead of walking away, you can badger your MTMTE-resistant friends – get ’em to jump on board. Because we’re not done, okay?

I’ve just had a look at some of your reactions. Lots of questions! I can’t answer them all. Um, let’s have another look…

Let’s put it this way. There’s always been a plan with MTMTE. A beginning, middle and end. We’re still on track.

When #1 hits, Season 3 will begin, and continue, as it would have done had the old numbering continued.

There’s a possibility we can revert to the old numbering for the last issue, whenever that is. Not my call, but the Big 2 do it all the time

And unless they’re keeping a secret, none of Team MTMTE are planning to do a runner.

I feel really supported by IDW, who know that MTMTE has a special place in people’s hearts. There’s no desire to tamper with the formula.

You’ll notice I’ve avoided all reference to what actually *happens* in Season 3. That’s because we’re not done with Season 2 yet. Patience!

If the renumbering bothers you, I get it. It matters more to some than others. Hey, I’m the one who made a big thing about reaching #100.

But take heart that we’re still here! Nearly five years and counting. That doesn’t happen much any more, whatever number’s on the cover.

And if I have my way, years down the line, EVERY issue will be gathered together in one huge, 2000 page hardcover omnibus.

Last thing for the moment. There’s a little surprise for you between now and #1. Wait a few weeks and you’ll hear.

I’m so pleased TDOTL has gone down well so far. The last part has it all, as they say.

I’ll say it nearer the time, but if you hate spoilers, don’t even look at the previews. Go in stone cold.


We would also like to send a shoutout to Tori O'Regan for the Thumbnail image!

Exclusive: IDW’s John Barber talks Revolution, Action Man, Transformers, Michael Bay and more

When it comes down to the Revolution and how everything is going to work, John Barber is the man to call. "Mr. continuity" will be one of the spearheads for the upcoming Revolution comics, and Luke Owen got the chance to interview Barber on the upcoming comics. You can find the original source HERE.

Today sees the release of IDW’s Action Man #1, which kickstarts a Hasbro expanded universe that brings together several of their other properties including The Transformers, G.I. Joe, Micronauts, M.A.S.K and more. Sadly, My Little Pony is not part of it. To celebrate the comic’s release, we caught up with the man who is spearheading this series – John Barber.

Barber is a man who has been hailed as ‘The God of Continuity’, and has previously worked with Marvel before jumping to IDW and writing for Transformers – both the Michael Bay movie tie-ins and IDW’s on-going series. But now he’s moving into a slightly less known territory of Action Man. So, why use him over more established characters?

“Well, it goes without saying that Action Man is the biggest character in the Hasbro stable,” Barber jokes. “No, I love Action Man, but I kid. [He’s] got a great set of fans, don’t get me wrong, but this comic is really about introducing the character to readers while honoring his history. The lead-up to Revolution is part of the DNA of the book Paulo Villanelli and John-Paul Bove put together. We’re not going to hit you over the head with it on page one, but Action Man is really the first book we’ve launched post-plans about the shared universe—I guess Rom #0 was the first, but Action Man was in that book in preview form, anyway. And Action Man absolutely plays a key role in Revolution—in fact he’s the first character you see in Revolution #1—but we’ll start to see these characters interacting in most of the comics leading up to Revolution (I say “most” as Micronauts is in another universe and More Than Meets the Eye is in deep space so we’re not cramming anything in that isn’t organic to the story).”

Is it going to be difficult to bring in characters from G.I. Joe, Transformers, etc?

“In a way, even though you don’t have to be reading Transformers,” he claims. “Revolution grows from the events in the Transformers comic Andrew Griffith and I do. Optimus Prime has declared Earth is under his protection, whether it wants to be or not. And for a lot of people, “not” is the answer. So when something starts going wrong with Ore-13—a substance Transformers can convert to energon, their food—signs point to the Transformers.”

[......]

IDW is no stranger to the world of crossovers, having brought Green Lantern to the world of Star Trek and countless team-ups between Transformers and G.I. Joe. There have also been connecting comics like Infestation, which tied together their on-going comics for Ghostbusters and Transformers but never saw the characters interact.

“IDW’s done really cool, really fun stories where they put together some great characters, like Star Trek/Green Lantern. And Tom Scioli (and slightly me, but Tom deserves all the credit) did absolutely amazing stuff on Transformers ss. G.I. Joe,” Barber says. “Then there have been line-wide stories like Infestation and Conspiracy where there’s a central spine and tie-in comics from different series, but the characters from one series don’t necessarily interact with each other—just with the central spine. I love those stories, but they’re very self-contained – that’s got advantages, of course. Transformers vs. G.I. Joe wouldn’t have the personality or impact it had if ten comics tied into it. But I think with the right project, it’s really great to have an event with big consequences in the comics crossing over.”

[.....]

Barber has been hailed by fans as ‘The God of Continuity’, which makes him the perfect man to take on something like Revolution – as it not only brings together these characters but does so without compromising the stories already told. Is ‘The God of Continuity’ a fitting moniker?

“I don’t know about that,” he says laughing. “When I came on to Transformers, I sort of approached it as an archeologist. I dug in and read everything and took notes and thought about things and tried to see what resonated and what I could build on. I think I got too into the woods with that in places, but it created the worldview I have on some of the characters. Like, I looked at how Soundwave or Prowl were handled, and they were both written really differently by different writers over the years, and I thought through—what would make somebody be like that? What if they really did act all those different ways, what’s their deal? And that led to—I hope—richer characters.”

[.....]

But the real question is: who would win in a fight between Bay’s Optimus Prime and IDW’s Optimus Prime…?

“The Bay Prime is more vicious, but I think Optimus in the Transformers comic is more tactical in his thinking at this point, and he’s not exactly a pushover,” he says. “I think the comic book one wins.”

When Revolution was announced earlier this month, there was a large vocal outrage from fans who felt that this ‘cash in’ was going to ruin the stories they’d liked in G.I. Joe: Real American Hero and Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye. IDW editor Chris Ryall spent a long time on Twitter answering fan queries and concerns, and told them all to trust the process.

“I used to edit Wolverine. I’m used to the internet reaction being negative,” Barber jokes.

But one has to wonder, did that level of negativity have some effect on the plans for Revolution?

“Nope. The plan is the plan and the plan is awesome,” Barber emphatically states. “I mean, there’s pressure, of course – Cullen and Fico and editor David Hedgecock and colorist Sebastian Cheng and I all feel a lot of pressure to not let people down, and to do justice to the characters, and to build a strong foundation to this world. Telling a story has it’s own pressure! A nice pressure, I’m not complaining – it’s great! But I don’t feel any additional pressure based on anybody’s initial reactions.”

[.....]

“Transformers is going to change – the grand, over-arcing story I’ve been telling is still totally in place, now with cooler pieces making Earth a richer, more interesting place,” Barber says. “But the actual title will have a couple big changes.”

We have a pair of news for you tonight involving the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight movie.

The first set of news comes from a tweet written by Mitch Pileggi, whom stated that he had filmed Transformers with Michael Bay recently. He was not willing to tell us what part he played in the filming, and the context of his tweet suggests his part is already done. You can see his tweet mirrored below. Pileggi is best known for his role as Walter Skinner in The X-Files.

Had the extreme pleasure of working on the new Transformers movie with @michaelbay. It's fascinating watching this cat work.


The second set of news regards another image from filming, but this time it appears that the Decepticon drone fighters seen in both Dark of the Moon and Age of Extinction may be making another appearance. The images were captured by the transformers_contributions and posted on their Instagram page. Check out the images below, along with a comparison shot from the previous movies:

Retreading *a lot* of previously explored material, Comic Book Resources brings an (apparently) exclusive peek at what's lurking behind IDW Publishing's REVOLUTION event, coming this September. Pretty much all of the creators involved are in the video embedded below, and they drop information on the various books included in the crossover, so check it out!

Starting in September, IDW Publishing is truly opening up its toy box. The San Diego-based publisher announced the "Revolution" event earlier this month, pairing its many licensed Hasbro action properties -- Transformers, G.I. Joe, M.A.S.K., Micronauts, ROM and Action Man -- into one shared universe, combining multiple long-running properties in comics for the first time.

CBR has the first full look at a video featuring multiple "Revolution" creators and editors, including John Barber, Brandon Easton, Aubrey Sitterson, Chris Ryall, Christos Gage, David Hedgecock and Cullen Bunn discussing the impending Hasbro crossover, along with a look at art from the upcoming event.

The Nick Roche train keeps steaming ahead as we wait for the final issue to his later this month, and we find out more or less what will be included in the collected edition of the mini-series. Transformers: Sins of the Wreckers TPB - solicited for this August - will include no new stories as Last Stand did, but will have plenty of extras alongside the five issues. Check out more info below, and join in the conversation on the Seibertron.com discussion boards!

Working on the backmatter for the Sins Of The Wreckers Trade. No new stories, we're busier than we were six years ago, but loads of unseen art, character designs, process notes, excerpts from the original outline and trivia. Sound alright?

Is there anything that you DON'T want as Wrextras in the trade? What annoys you in backmatter terms? What DO you like?
