IDW Continues To Celebrate Transformers 30th Anniversary
The Celebratory Year Concludes With New Series!


San Diego, CA (November 25, 2014) – 2014 marks the 30th Anniversary of Hasbro’s TRANSFORMERS, which has been celebrated thus far with a blockbuster film and critically acclaimed comic series’ from IDW. But the party isn’t quite over as IDW still has some TRANSFORMERS debuts this year!

The long-running TRANSFORMERS comic, which originally appeared in 1984, came to an epic conclusion as, TRANSFORMERS: Regeneration One by IDW reached its 100th issue! Original series’ writer, Simon Furman and artist Andrew Wildman led the illustrious series to its closing chapter earlier this year.

But as one chapter closed, a new one began during the “Dawn of The Autobots.” After the cataclysmic changes of “Dark Cybertron” the Autobots gained unexpected new allies, of whom the breakout star, WINDBLADE, the first ever fan voted character, ventured out on her own critically-acclaimed mini-series written by Mairghread Scott and stunningly illustrated by Sarah Stone.

The smash-hit new series TRANSFORMERS vs. G.I. JOE by Tom Scioli and John Barber made waves upon its Free Comic Book Day debut. With its stylized over-the-top approach, issue #1 sold out before the first issue even hit the shelves! The epic space-romp has not only been praised by the comic community, but has also struck a cord with fans.

“It’s been an amazing year for TRANSFORMERS comics,” said Barber, IDW Publishing’s Senior Editor. “The fans seem to be digging what we’re making, and it seems like there’s more fans every day. It’s been amazing seeing how fast people have come to love WINDBLADE—and especially gratifying to see kids inspired by her. Add to that the phenomenal response to TRANSFORMERS vs. G.I. JOE and the outstanding level of quality on the other ongoing series, and it’s been a banner year. Wait’ll everybody sees what we’ve got coming in 2015!”

Throughout the year variant homage covers have graced the ongoing series’ More Than Meets The Eye by writer James Roberts and artist Alex Milne and Robots in Disguise by writer John Barber and artist Andrew Griffith. Celebrating the rich history of TRANSFORMERS, these covers highlighted monumental moments throughout the history of Transformers.

This year has also seen a number of premier TRANSFORMERS collections released from IDW; from the 30th Anniversary Collection, with highlights from the many iterations of TRANSFORMERS in comics, to TRANSFORMERS Legacy: The Art of TRANSFORMERS Packaging.

The Cybertronian War has been the explosive topic of the TRANSFORMERS series Autocracy and Monstrosity and the final chapter in this expansive storyline, Primacy debuted this fall! Written by Chris Metzen and Flint Dille with art by Livio Ramondeli this epic conclusion can’t be missed!

DRIFT, who made his debut in the pages of IDW comics was featured in the blockbuster hit film TRANSFORMERS: Age of Extinction, and this month he returns to his comic roots in the new mini-series from creators Shane McCarthy and Guido Guidi! Drift—Empire of Stone sees the fan-favorite character take on a mission to clean up the darkest depths of the galaxy.

As IDW comes up on its tenth year with TRANSFORMERS, it embarks on the wildest and most unexpected of crossovers with ANGRY BIRDS TRANSFORMERS. Written by John Barber the mini-series will be drawn by Marcelo Ferreira, and debuts tomorrow!

It’s been a huge year for TRANSFORMERS in the anniversary year, and IDW is honored to be involved in the celebrations!

Well that was quick! As soon as we got wind that Hasbro had expressed interest in buying DreamWorks on Thursday, it appeared as of yesterday (i.e. one day later), the deal has already gone kaput! In the world of Deal or No Deal ... NO DEAL!

Various reasons are the cause of the quick collapse of these talks. From a predictably negative reaction from Disney, to Wall Street analysts who deemed the $35 a share asking price from Dreamworks too steep, to Hasbro shares losing 4% on Thursday and an additional 2% on Friday. Perhaps there are some additional reasons, but the bottom line is that this deal won't be happening in this reality. You can check out the full articles about the demise of the Hasbro/DreamWorks via HollywoodReporter.com and NYtimes.com.

Per CNBC analyst Tom DiChristopher Disney could be a major obstacle standing in the way of Hasbro's purchase of DreamWorks Animation. In other words Disney must approve this deal! Hasbro has a very lucrative contract with Walt Disney to produce toys based on their Star Wars and Marvel Comics properties. Senior Analyst Steph Wissink at Piper Jaffray estimates that 25 to 30 percent of Hasbro's business is tied up with Disney. Hasbro owning Disney's biggest rival animation studio could present a huge problem.

After DreamWorks' recent box-office disappointments, including "Turbo" and "Rise of the Guardians." CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, also held talks with another potential buyer, Japanese telecommunications giant SoftBank.

According to USAtoday, Hasbro is in talks to buy DreamWorks, the Studio behind animated movie franchises as Shrek and Madagascar. While NY Times is citing anonymous sources that talks are in "advance stages" and the deal would include a combination of stocks and cash. This deal with Hasbro would forge a family entertainment powerhouse to be called DreamWorks-Hasbro. With Hasbro already owning 40% of Discovery Family, they are making it clear that they want to be the leader of family entertainment, using this media to promote their games and toys including Transformers.



According to Deadline.com, "DreamWorks Animation is deeply engaged in two potentially game changing negotiations that could transform the company — including one with Hasbro to forge a family entertainment powerhouse to be called DreamWorks-Hasbro. The other talks are with Hearst to turn DWA's AwesomenessTV into a joint venture."

DreamWorks' Jeffrey Katzenberg would become chairman of the combined operation, the website says.

Via the website gamesindustry.biz, we have some unfortunate news hailiing from Jagex, the company behind the Transformer: Universe MOBA online game. It appears that the company is in talks regarding having to let go a number of its employees, as a result of a company-wide downsizing. This follows the news of the current CEO Gerhard leaving by the end of this year, too. Read some more below, and the full piece here.

UK studio Jagex has confirmed that it is currently in a consultation process with the staff assigned to its Transformers Universe project. Some will find new roles on other Jagex games, others face redundancy.

"It is with regret that we can confirm some members of the Transformers Universe team will now be facing the possibility of redundancy. The proposed downsizing comes as the product reaches a new stage of development in its life cycle with a view to refining specific areas of gameplay for a live environment," the company told GamesIndustry.biz in a statement.

"Proposing to lay off staff is not something reached without due care and consideration and comes, in this instance, only at the end of a long period of deliberation. We remain grateful to all members of staff who will be affected by this process, and would like to thank them for all of their work on the game."
