The official Transformers Youtube channel has posted two new Designer Desk videos, featuring designer John Warden and this time, their focus is on Superion and Menasor.

In both videos, Mr. Warden gives us a little peek behind the curtain mixed with a little bit of "How It's Made" in which he discusses the enjoyment he had in helping to bring these characters to life in plastic and shows off a few of the designers notes as to their inspiration on some of the design choices. For example, Menasor's horns came to be after receiving a bit of inspiration from Viking Gods!

You can watch both videos in the embeds below and when you're done, come on back to the forums and share your thoughts with us! After watching the videos, if you're still on the fence about these guys, check out the new toys of the Combiner Wars line in our high resolution galleries, betcha can't hold out after that!

Big news to share today, folks! As you know by now, Hasbro has been asking for fan input for a while, and thanks to that we have Deluxe Class Windblade (which you can see her Hasbro and Takara galleries here) and we've even been given the chance to pick a new combiner team, as well as the combiner's nemesis Galvatronus!

However, the biggest news of all has just been revealed thanks to USA Today: the fan-built combiner's name is Victorion and SHE is comprised of SIX fembots! A full team of combining fembots which is a first for the Transformers brand. WE did it, everyone! We had our voices heard and in a sign of changing times, we have female characters finally making an impact along with the male characters. It's about doggone time and well overdue.

Here's the snippet confirming this info:

And for the '80s generation now having their own children, especially dads with daughters, "it's very important for them to have strong female characters so that they can relate and bridge that love with their kids," adds Mairghread Scott, a writer for the animated series as well as IDW's Transformers: Windblade comics.

Windblade means a lot to fans because, well, they helped build her last year through polls to determine her personality traits and abilities. And Victorion, a new "Combiner" Transformer comprised of six different female Autobots and a result of another recent fan-built poll, is rolling out in the July comic Transformers: Combiner Hunters and debuting in toy form in the near future.


This article also revealed that Windblade will be coming to the Transformers Robots In Disguise cartoon. View our article about this by clicking here.

You can read the full article titled "Female 'Transformers' come to the fore" on USA Today's website.

IDW Publishing Transformers MTMTE #43 Cyclonus Cover Design Process by Alex Milne

Via a notification from fellow Seibertron.com user SW's Silverhammer, we have a full reveal of the linework by Alex Milne, plus the coloured version by Josh Perez, for the recently revealed July cover for More Than Meets the Eye, featuring Cyclonus's holomatter avatar and their robot self side by side. Check out below the two images, plus Milne's insight in the creation process of the character!


So this was shown off today so I figured I’d show it off here and give a little insight into what I was going for with this cover.

With the design for the holo avatar for Cyclonus, I knew that James wanted a female Victorian school teacher look. I looked over a lot of reference image to find out what what the clothing would look like. This outfit is based off a old photo I found online with a few adjustments to it in with the character.
With the hair style I wanted to have something to do do with Cyclnous. So I gave her 2 long spikes of hair that shoot up to represent the horn’s on his helmet. The pendant is represents a modified look for his altmode. I didn’t just want to draw his altmode for the pendant, so I just gave it elements of his altmode.
For the colours I had a nice chat with Josh Perez about what I was looking for and he did an superb job of getting the look I wanted. That man has talent and I’m lucky to work with him, even if it’s only for covers.
I knew from the time James talked about what he thought the holo avatar was going to look like, I knew I wanted the eyes to be red. This was a big deal for me. When I was thinking about the red eyes my mind wondered to Full Metal Alchemist and the character of Scar and his people the Ishbalan’s and thought that’s how I want the holo avatar to look. The more I thought about it the more I liked the idea of someone from the Middle East or India to be the holo avatar. I thought about the episode of the original Star Trek when Khan was introduced and information on and his culture making some of the best warriors and that had Cyclonus down perfectly.
For the outfit, I knew I just wanted a lot of his robot colours in the outfit, just keeping the long skirt black. She’s holding a blackboard pointer or whatever those things are called.
I think the only thing that will be a problem is redrawing her in many panels since the out fit is very detailed, but when have I ever not steer away from detail ;p

Enjoy :D

Combiner Quips
(Spoiler free-ish)



Synopsis
PROWL makes his move… and the galaxy will never be the same. Can WINDBLADE stand against the threat of the COMBINERS?

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Combiner Wars - Windblade #2 Review
Enter, stage right


Story

Close in its release to the previous chapter in Combiner Wars, taking place in The Transformers #40, Windblade #2 continues the event, by letting the story by Mairghread Scott and John Barber slide back over the table to Scott for the actual writing of the issue - where does it fare, you might ask? Read on below to find out.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Combiner Wars - Windblade #2 Review
Buckle up!


Scott does her usual dialogue wonders, playing with the different characters' voices throughout the text, and airing some of the hang-ons from previous stories, especially with Ironhide and Chromia (and the Tankors). Starscream seems to shine even more in his machinations, but it's the combiners that get a lot of the scene - and their fights are not just physical.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Combiner Wars - Windblade #2 Review
REKT M8


On the other hand, there are some concerning issues taking place in the book, mostly from either script mistakes or editorial oversights, not only very early on in the book (First Aid becoming Fix-It briefly, for example; a number of typos) - I'm not keen on pointing out minor slips by Scott or Guzman, but there are quite a few scattered throughout, which should be caught by the time the trade comes out.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Combiner Wars - Windblade #2 Review
Someone's mistake?


Nonetheless, even with the rushed feeling of some of the pages of the issue, the dialogue works well and there are some sensationally silly, but fist-pumping moments in the fights between combiners - wth Devastator finally entering the main stage, and the introduction of even more to the mix - that just I mean I just go read them, they're bonkers, fun and twistedly light-hearted.

Art

The artwork duties are still down to Livio Ramondelli, keeping the engine running for yet another issue of Combiner Wars - and there are some really good things being done for it. There are some great facial expression moments, the characters all get their needed gravitas, and Starscream is as pissed off as ever. There are even channellings of Sarah Stone's redeveloped design for some characters.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Combiner Wars - Windblade #2 Review
That there's a noice Ironhide


Much of the problems with this issue, unfortunately, also comes down to what the artwork doesn't do quite right. There are panels in which characters seem to switch for no apparent reason, especially among the Protectobots. Some of the Superion fight scenes have limbs appearing and reappearing without explanation or shown process, and when it's shown (in one panel/sequence) it takes a while to identify.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Combiner Wars - Windblade #2 Review
Your words, Prowl


The lettering, on the third hand, does not present any difficulties or confusing sequences as last issues, and actually, Tom B. Long has a lot of fun with sound effects during the fight scenes - the many fight scenes - and the multiple voices that Scott's script develops for the characters. The covers once again lack the Hasbro Marcelo Matere credit for the (thumbnailed) RI variant, but still deliver on their quality, with the truly menacing Devastator poster variant by Ramondelli, and the Casey Coller/Joana Lafuente Defensor spotlight.


Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

The smattering of mistakes in script and artwork unfortunately hinder the full enjoyment of this chapter of Combiner Wars, and gives it too much of a rushed feeling to satisfy long-time readers and invested fans. However, while they do distract, they do not take away from what it does really really well, in both writing and visuals, as I hope I've showed above.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Combiner Wars - Windblade #2 Review
lel


What the issue works well with is the interactions, both verbal and physical, both aggressive and positive, and between Camiens and Cybertronians, Autobots and Decepticons and all the various cogs in the machine that is becoming the beginning of a new universe-wide ..well, universe. Glamorous assistant ScottyP aptly comments that this is an almost entry-level comic for people buying the new toys, and it does more than enough to hook people in for the longer ride.

Editors note: After internal discussion, it's uncertain as to whether or not this is Prowl or Ratchet, and because of this we've amended this news article to address this change. The problem is the head crest, it makes it difficult to tell whether it's Prowl or Ratchet, seeing as this mold would be perfect for either figure.

Thanks to fellow fan, collector and Seibertronian, chuckdawg1999, we have our first look at what appears to be a new Combiner Wars Deluxe Class figure! Looks like it could be either Prowl (since he's an SUV in the IDW comics) or Ironhide's "brother" Ratchet! (Ironhide appears to be using the Offroad version of this mold, and as history has shown us time and again, Ironhide and Ratchet share the same mold with slight modifications.)

Chuck shared the images he found with us and wanted us to share them with you, the community, so here they are!

chuckdawg1999 wrote:The following images are from the back of First Aid's comic. As you can see the head design is very different and features Prowl's (or Ratchet's) horns.

Now, we must put this disclaimer in place: We cannot guarantee that this is, in fact, Combiner Wars Prowl or Ratchet, but it's not the first time that images such as these have indicated a future figure's release and as we know by now, Prowl is in computer systems as an upcoming figure release for sometime in the future. Chances are he will be released in the form the image suggests.

You might have already noticed, but if it hasn't become clear yet, the mold is a share with Offroad and First Aid, but featuring a new head with horns and likely a drastically changed paint job. (You can see Offroad's gallery by clicking here)
