Dan Gilvezan, who was recently one of the headliners at BotCon 2012 contacted us today to inform of us of some exciting news regarding his book "Bumblebee & Me: Life as a G1 Transformer." Dan is famous in Transformers circles for being the original voice of Bumblebee on the 1980's Transformers cartoon series that was produced by Sunbow.

Hi Ryan,

I hope this email finds you well and happy. I wanted to let you know that as of today, "Bumblebee & Me: Life as a G1 Transformer", as well as my novel, "Drowned in the Grenadine", are now both available in paperback in Great Britain via Amazon.uk and on the Continent through Amazon.de, Amazon.fr, Amazon.it, and Amazon.es. This is the link to the book's amazon.uk page.

All books are being produced and shipped locally. No more heinously expensive shipping or outrageous prices via secondary-market retailers for our friends across the pond. This is important news for Trans Fans in Europe and the UK, so if you wouldn't mind putting up an announcement on the site I would truly appreciate it. ((You might also want to mention how much you enjoyed the book (you DID enjoy it, didn't you?) and encourage everyone, including folks in the US who haven't, to order a copy.))

Thanks, as always, for your support. Wishing you health, happiness and all good things.

Sincerely,
Dan

Courtesy of the deviantART accounts of colorist Josh Burcham and artist Guido Guidi we have retailer incentive cover for IDW's upcoming Transformers: Regeneration #81 and "Dinobot Month" cover for #82. The issue 81 retailer incentive cover features retro style art by Geoff Senior. Take a look below.


Thats right folks! Geoff Senior is back! [for a cover...but hey! the important thing is he's back!]

So anyways, this was shown off at Botcon this last weekend [photos of it have cropped up here and there on the web] and I figured i'd give you guys a little clearer look

This cover was truly momentous for me. Geoff Senior is hands down my favorite artist to ever draw Transformers. EVAR. and he's been a huge inspiration/influence on my own drawing style as well

So its a pretty big deal to me being able to color this cover!

After getting it i pondered ever so briefly about tackling it just about how i would any other piece of TF art i do but just felt that going that route wouldnt feel right. I had to go old school. So I busted out my 80s Marvel/DC color palettes i've run across online and colored this bad boy up. [and that yellow background! totally helps sell the feel i wanted for this too. Its so 80s xD]

So anyways! Thats my story! This is our cover! And I hope you guys all check out Regeneration One when it hits [Free comic book day is when the "first" book comes out. Nab that up and get yourself up to speed for the proper release!]

Special TFRG1 #82 "retro" cover* for the IDW's "Dinobots month".
Since it has been publicly revealed at the Botcon IDW's panel (and throught various reporting fansites) it should be safe to post it here too.

Fineliners/markers on art board, done on '80 retro style.
More to come!

Wondering why Grimlock was absent from the Transformers: Robots in Disguise #8 cover we posted earlier today? It's because he's right here on the cover of Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye #8! All part of IDW's Dinobot month, the team will be divided between the two ongoing titles. Alex Milne updated his deviantART account with the cover to issue 8 mirrored below.

so this image was shown off at botcon this past weekend so i figured it would be alright to show it off here. hopefully get a better look at it
this is the cover to MTMTE issue 8, and yes it features Grimlock
i guess now we finally get to find out what happened to him since last we saw him which i think was in maximum dinobots?
i had a lot of fun with this cover
it has a batman feel to it, which i did not intend until after i stated placing in the shadows and i thought, why not go pretty heavy on the shadows like in the batman comics i read. this was the result, and i like how it turned out
got to work with Joana on this cover. when we were talking about it, i noticed that this was going to be out first cover together that wasn't part of the movie line. i thought that was pretty cool.
the bots in the foreground don't look to happy. i wonder if they know whats about to happen???
enjoy

We have a couple of updates from our friend Jim Sorenson's blog Disciples of Boltax. First we have his weekly Ark Addendum update, which is Motormaster's transformation sequence. It can be seen in the mirrored image below. Next we have some addition information on Legacy: The Box Art of The Transformers, Jim's new project that was revealed during the IDW panel last weekend at BotCon. The book will cover all of the US and Japanese (including eHobby) releases up until Beast Wars, and possibly some of the European releases provided the material can be found. The book will also contain artist interviews, vintage and unused art, production sketches, and more. Here's a list of what Jim is currently looking for. If you can help contact Jim at:
transformerstheark@yahoo.com

Jetfire
Trypticon (US)
Deluxe Autobots & Insecticons
Quickmix
Triggerbots & Triggercons
Bomb-Burst/Blood
Pretenders from 88: Iguanus, Roadgrabber, Chainclaw, Catilla, Carnivac, Snarler
Pretenders from 89: nearly all
Most European exclusive toys
A good number of Action Masters
Micromasters Flattop, Roughstuff, Race Track Patrol, Sports Car Patrol, Battle Patrol Team
G2: Most of them, but my biggest wants are Onslaught, Fireflight, Powerdive, Sizzle, and Volt to complete out existing partial sets of mine
Japanese dino cassettes

There are also some that I have decent quality pics of but I'd like to upgrade, mostly from 86:
Shockwave
Galvatron
Technobots
Terrorcons
1986 minibots (excepting Wheelie)
Runamuck & Runabout
Overkill & Slugfest
Throttlebots

With BotCon, we get caught up in the product reveals, pictures, news tidbits and everything else that's overwhelming. The wow factor, as it's known. This BotCon, however, will be the most memorable for one fan who had his wish come true.

You may not know the name of Dr. Timothy Lim, but you do know his work.

(Which can be found Here, Here, and Here.)

Earlier this year, Dr. Lim created a piece of art for the Hasbro Children's Hospital fundraiser.

Image

This is the story behind that work:

For those of you who don't know me, my name is Dr. Timothy Lim, Au.D. I am an audiologist from the state of Arkansas.

Today is a big day for me: thanks to an endorsement by Peter Cullen, the voice of Optimus Prime, RIPT Apparel and myself are selling my shirt, "The Voice of a Generation", to raise money for Hasbro Children's Hospital, the pediatric division of Rhode Island Hospital.

Optimus Prime, for a lot of people in my generation, has become an iconic hero. He was the first toy I remember getting for Christmas: the distinct voice of Peter Cullen on a Saturday morning echoes nostalgically in my memory. To say that this is an immense honor is an understatement.

As an audiologist, it's wonderful to finally be able to pay it forward, especially towards pediatrics: in audiology, I have a profound respect for the women and men who give so much care and attention to children with hearing loss and aiding them throughout childhood. I'm thankful to my fellow audiologists, faculty, and colleagues for their continued support of my audiologic and artistic endeavors: I wouldn't be here without you.

My entire artist royalties from this sale will go towards Hasbro Children's Hospital, with RIPT Apparel matching my donation. Please forward this to anyone you know who might be a Transformers fan, or fans of Mr. Cullen in general.

Sincere thanks to you all!

~ Timothy Lim, Au.D.

With help from Dan Gilvezan (!), Dr. Lim was given a chance to meet his hero, and it became a moment that was touching for the both of them.

He met Mr. Peter Cullen, himself.

I met with the voice of Bumblebee, who got in contact with Hasbro representatives to let me have an audience with my childhood hero, Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen). He hugged me and said my work was great, and cried. I cried too.

You all have been supportive: this has been an incredible experience. Thank you all for EVERYTHING, each and every one of you.

Congratulations to Dr. Lim for getting the chance to have a dream come true, and thank you for your contribution.

Feel free to join the discussion and post your comments.

It was revealed during IDW's BotCon panel that July would be Dinobot and Decepticon month. Now artist Macelo Matere has revealed the line art for the interconnected retail exclusive covers for July's Transformers: MTME #7 and Transformer: RID #7. They noted that just because Megatron is featured in the cover art is not an indication that he is back. Check out the art below.

Since IDW showed these covers during their panel at Botcon last weekend, I think there's no problem to show it here!

Do you like Decepticons? Dinobots so here we go!

Interconnected covers pencils for issue #7 of Transformers: More Than Meets the Eyes and Transformers:Robots in Disguise. Those are the incentive covers for the Decepticon and Dinobot month ( July/2012)

Hope you like!

The BotCon fan's choice Hall of Fame award has be renamed to The Hartman Award to honor the Hartman brothers for their contributions to Transformers fan community over the years. Karl and Jon Hartman were the original creators of BotCon back in 1994.

Karl Hartman via facebook wrote:Each year at the Hasbro Transformers Hall of Fame dinner during BotCon (the official Transformers convention), Transformers characters and the creative people behind the Transformers brand are inducted into the Transformers hall of fame. The fans are asked to vote each year for one character that they want to be inducted into the hall of fame, as a fan's choice.

This year, Aaron Archer, one of the vice presidents and creative directors at Hasbro, declared that the fan's choice award will now be called 'the Hartman Award', named for my brother Jon and my contributions to the Transformers fan community over the years, specifically the creation of BotCon 18 years ago in 1994. We are certainly very honored and humbled by this recognition. This is a picture of Aaron and myself taken at the Hasbro booth at BotCon this afternoon.
