Good morrow, fellow Transformers fans! Here at Seibertron.com we strive to bring you interesting, enthusiastic original content as well as the best news and toy galleries in the fandom. To that end, we went and checked in with the authors of this week's IDW Publishing release of Transformers: Legacy - The Art of Transformers Packaging: Bill Forster and Jim 'Lockwind' Sorenson! We had a chat with Sorenson already during the Twincast Podcast #100, but read on below for more juicy information about this incredible book, clocking in at 300 pages and for the measly price of $49.99. And we also happen to chat about the upcoming release of the Complete AllSpark Almanac, so make sure to read all the way!

Transformers News: Seibertron.com Interviews Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster - IDW Tr



Va'al – Bill, Jim, it is an incredible pleasure to be talking to both of you. The book looks incredible. Truly. I was a late collector, and grew up in Europe, so some of this is vaguely new to me! But incredible, still. And congratulations on seeing this project all the way through to publication, it must've taken years (and your Acknowledgements section confirms it). How long did it take?


Bill Forster – Thank you! I can share some of the feeling: Jim was the one finding the images and sending them over, it was really exciting for me too. The idea for the book was something that came to our minds since the Ark books. So the answer would probably be...

Jim Sorenson – Probably officially in 2006. But we pitched the idea before the second ark book, and we were talking to some Hasbro guys at the tour during BotCon 2007, only to find out they didn't really have any artwork available.

Then Andrew Hall (aka Hydra), who helped with the Ark 2, went to work for Part One, Takara's design firm, and dug into their archives. He discovered they had a ton of the material, so we thought the time had come to resubmitted the idea to IDW. We had good 40% of the material from Part One.

We also worked with Rik Alvarez at Hasbro, who found some more pieces, maybe another 10%, including some of the more unusual, unreleased paintings that show up in the book. But the biggest source of material were fans themselves, who came to help after a good beating of the drums on my part.

In fact, the initial intention was to have a smattering of pieces across the toy lines, rather than something more comprehensive, but what we've eventually achieved is almost the entirety for what was in scope. That's G1 and G2 in the US, and G1 for Japan. The Japanese G2 art we shied away from, as it was CG and the style didn't really mesh, but you can get a hint of that style because we used a Japanese CG mural as the chapter header for the G2 chapter. That choice was because they never made an airbrushed one. But still, for the eras we covered, we have maybe 90-95% of the art.


Transformers News: Seibertron.com Interviews Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster - IDW Tr



Va'al – That is really an impressive feat! And how did you go about dividing up the book into its chapters? Had you considered something by theme, before moving to series?

Bill – Well, we didn't want the same sort of background running through, we wanted to show how it changes, show the visual differences from one line to the next. So we decided to go for the different periods and toy gimmicks, and adding the purple and red backgrounds for the two Autobot and Decepticon factions.

Jim – We really wanted to impart a sense of momentum as you read the books. The Ark books work as reference, but didn't have a sense of progression. It's great for hardcore transformers fans, especially if you want to use it as a visual reference. If you look, you can see that we structued the book that way. We even have a by-character index in the back. However, for a more casual reader, we've seen them go through it and usually they spend a lot of time on the first few images but then accellerate as they go, so that they're just skimming over the last 100 pages or so looking for something different! The Almanacs already improved on that, and I think Bill has done a great job here with Legacy at giving a sense of dynamic progression, pulling the reader through the art.


Va'al – I would agree, I tried to just dip in, but ended up going from start to finish! So how did you divide the work between the two of you, what were your roles for the book?

Bill – Generally, Jim handles the writing, I do the art direction. But we both dabble in each other's worlds, and we get to do different things. In this one though, Jim was definitely the curator, and I the art director: he'd get the thematic display and progression where he wanted them, I'd then lay them out and show them off accordingly.

Jim – Yes, I find the pieces and organize them. Say, for example, with the Stunticons: I wanted them all in one section, or maybe the guys on one page and Menasor on another. It was then up to Bill to arrange them how they looked best, with that basic structurein mind. And he did so much work. We had great quality images, but Bill still had to do a gigantic amount of work cleaning them and cutting them out of their backgrounds.

Bill – I actually got nerve damage from the work, I had to use a mouse rather than a tablet and it messed up my hand quite bad!


Va'al - Whoah! That makes it even more impressive, sorry to hear about it though!

Bill - Another factor was that Jim had moved to Albuquerque, so it made sense to divide up the work.

Jim – But also, Legacy was much more difficult than other books we've worked on, and we each had to work on our own strengths. Bill's is visual, the flow, the backgrounds. I've gone from awful to professionally competent in that area, but Bill is beyond competent, he's exceptional. I bring a strong sense of context and a network of contacts to the job. I flew over to Japan, to different US cities to collect material. Not that he couldn't! He did it once or twice.

Bill – Yeah, with Action Master Shockwave. But Jim is the driving force, getting on planes, contacting people. I sit at a table and put it all painstakingly together.

Jim – Bill's name is first on this one, in the credits, and it really is reflective of the work that went into the project. This is an art book, a beautiful art book. It's playing to his strengths.

Bill – I thought it was alphabetical! Just kidding. I think it was really important to deliver something that would really visually strike the readers and fans.

Transformers News: Seibertron.com Interviews Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster - IDW Tr


Va'al – The visual element certainly does jump out! You mention throughout that a lot of the art shows off the 'transforming' nature of the characters, the movement. Take the Triggerbots and Triggercons for example.. you actually see the spring loaded weapons.

Jim – Oh yeah, remember those? They were a pain.

Bill – Yeah. I had no idea what to do about the background, how to show the motion lines.. I winged it in the end. I replicated the images, trying to figure out how to drop a background. It took forever to reconstruct them over the originals. I was sitting there for a day and a half for each image. At least there weren't too many of them!

With the Pretenders, who also have some motion, they also had a half fade from black to white in the backgrounds. I was originally going to do a grid background, but then the images didn't pop right. In the end, I just went for black background to show off the artwork.

Jim – It's probably what the original package makers had to do, the same as Bill, but with an exacto knife! We left a few of the original backgrounds in tact; Grand from Grand Maximus, Metalhawk, Roadblock, Skyhammer. We couldn't do it with everyone though, unless each Pretender got a full page, and that was too much. They just didn't look as good if not on pure black.

Transformers News: Seibertron.com Interviews Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster - IDW Tr


Bill – I remembered how I did it, actually. I work in InDesign among other programs, and I remember having to put motion lines on the actual page background, and make a solid image out of them or the transparency would not work. When I sent them to Jim, he was not allowed to move anything, because they were part of the background!

Jim – I never touched anything in this book! Normally we both tweak a lot images, even if just by millimeters. It may seem trivial, but it was crucial to us. This one I didn't touch anything

Bill – And you really see that with the yellow boxes containing the names – doing it just right, avoiding the lines in the background, gives it that little more visual dynamic. IDW had to make a few changes in a few places, but I always had to go over their work to make it visually consistent. And I would know what Jim might have a problem with, and we both avoid doing things that the other will have issues with. We're good at it by now.

Va'al – I have to say, it does read like a labour of love, there's a lot of passion gone into this book. It's something that looks and feels like a true celebration of an unsung aspect of the Transformers toys. But as we were talking about names: Why were individual Targetmaster names pointed out, but not the Headmasters? For instance, there's Targetmaster Cyclonus with Nightstick, but it doesn't say Headmaster Brainstorm with Arcana, just Brainstorm. Was that a choice?

Transformers News: Seibertron.com Interviews Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster - IDW Tr


Bill – I don't like words. Ever. So I'd rather avoid them. But for Targetmasters it became a style choice, using the words to balance the page. Titles, names, descriptions, I can use them to my advantage. Jim might add something in revisions, but that was what made sense to me visually.

Jim – The book came to me with some of the Targetmasters named, and for the sake of consistency, we decided to label all of them. And in the artwork itself, the guns are really prominent. Whereas the Headmasters, it doesn't feel like they're as important, not overly proportioned. It doesn't feel like Chromedome with Stylor. Same with Powermasters. Other than Prime's engine, you can't really see them. So yes, definitely a conscious choice, if only in retrospect. Or maybe I'm rationalizing.

Va'al – That sounds like a reasonable one, too. And what about those three unreleased G2 Gobot names, are they the official ones?

Jim – Well, they were the names written on the artwork. Maybe they wouldn't be named like that on the box, except for Hound maybe. But we had to name them somehow, and those were the names we had. I'm actually about 95% sure that the police car would have been named Prowl, but I didn't have any documentation to support that and I didn't want to make that declaration. This wasn't like the Almanacs, where we were working collaboratively with the creators. This one felt more like archaeology, documenting the history of the brand as we unearthed it.

Bill – I was tempted to label Hound Hulk, actually, because of a comment made by my girlfriend..

Jim – Jillian. She helped work on the book.

Bill – Yeah, as I was working on him she asked if it was a Hulk Transformer. It's the purple pants.

Transformers News: Seibertron.com Interviews Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster - IDW Tr


Va'al – Hah! Yes, I can see that. But speaking of unreleased goodies, what about the pitched US Multiforce releases, do you know if they were planned for G1 or G2?

Jim – Definitely G1. I realize the book structure might not make it clear, as it's a lot of G2 unused artwork, but they would've been G1, probably with new original names. Same for the three Decepticon jets, Quickswitch, Monstructor. A lot of the unused section was drawn from G2 because there were many more unreleased G2 toys than unreleased G1 toys.


Va'al – So what is missing? What about more of the European releases, did you use of all of the material you collected?

Jim - We included everything we had that we were legally able to reproduce. We're missing some Action Masters. But that is also due to the lack of interest in the community, I feel, about them. Since so much of the book came from fans, I think that the distributed collective effort just wasn't as strong for finding Action Master art. The other gaps are at the tail end of G2, but I can mostly live with that, because that's where digital coloring is coming into play. Like, Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywaryp, all repaints but because it's paintings they just made 3 different images. It's basically the same level of effort to make a new image as to recolor an old one. By G2, digital recoloring was feasible so they didn't bother to make a new painting for ATB Megatron and Starscream, they just recolored Dreadwing and Smokescreen.

The one mold we are missing from G2 is Roadblock. That was frustrating, because Hasbro did have it in 2007, when we started thinking about the book, but by the time we pitched in 2011-12, they didn't have it any more.

Bill – It probably disappeared after that Hasbro tour! We even asked fans who were there if they had any high quality digital photos of it, because we might have been able to use it, but no dice.

Jim – We also would've loved to include more European releases, but no one had that artwork. There is a bit, but not that much. In fact, some of those images in the book actually came from Hasbro US rather than UK, like Pyro and Clench.

Transformers News: Seibertron.com Interviews Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster - IDW Tr


Va'al – I will not comment on Hasbro UK, here. I think my question at this point, though, is : what about the artists of the original artwork? Did you find out who they were?

Jim – They're all in the Acknowledgements section, we did contact them but not everyone remembered what they actually worked on. We didn't think it made sense to do attributions if we only knew about 40% of the total. But they are there, and they did help with the book.

Va'al – So the credit is where it's due, excellent news! Of course, Legacy is not the only project you're working on at the moment, especially with its imminent release – what is the status of the Complete Allspark Almanac?

Jim – We'll say as much as we can, but a lot of it is still in the air. The two Almanacs are probably our most popular books, going for really high prices on the secondary market – we're really pleased that IDW are doing a collected volume. We're hoping it will also include the material we produced for the Club, the editors are definitely on board with the idea, but we're still looking at practical aspects like cost, clearances and whatnot, so we have yet to receive confirmation on that.

As far as I know, the combined version – a whopping 472 pages - is ready, sitting in the IDW servers. Maybe it's not what goes to press, but that is my ideal of the book. The chapters from the two volumes are integrated, to combine the separate chapters in the two books.

Transformers News: Seibertron.com Interviews Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster - IDW Tr


Bill – Jim loves order. Loves it.

Jim – And now I had the chance to correct some oversights from the first two volumes, like getting Starscream next to Megatron, though he's not next to all his clones as a result. So there are tradeoffs. But each chapter is bigger, even the ones that didn't have an analog in each book. We shifted things around, little things like moving the Tigatron stadium from 'Settings' to the 'Detroit' chapter. All the Elite Guard guys are together. Ironhide is now with the rest of Rodimus' team. Etc.

Bill – What we can definitely say is that the cover is amazing. Once we have Hasbro's approval, IDW will show it.

Jim – Yeah, we were both spitballing ideas with the artist, and then he comes up with something that blew our minds. He sketched ours, and they were perfectly fine, but his was better.

Va'al – Intriguing... can you say who it is?

Jim – Not really, but you can probably guess.

Va'al – A teaser! And apart from the Club stuff, is there any additional extra material?

Jim – Maybe a teeny tiny bit, but that's really not the focus of the book.

Va'al – I see. Bill, what sbout your role this time round? Any major changes?

Bill – I was mostly recovering from Legacy, and Jim, a lovable control freak, took the lead on this one, including designs. Which he then ran past me, and we've become so attuned to one another that he did exactly what I would've done!

Jim – Derrick J. Wyatt had a lot do say about the Complete version, too. But Bill did a lot of writing work in the Almanac the first time round, especially volume two. So it is definitely both of us working on it. Then it goes to Marty Isenberg and Derrick, then IDW, then Hasbro – but it all feels pretty good, and not stretched out thin.

Bill – Yeah, and we both like submitting stuff to Marty and Derrick. We work in their world rather than trying to fit in our own.

Jim – Before we were talking about arguments, and knowing what the other person will like or not like. We were working on the logo for the Complete Allspark Almanac – we wanted something so you could see at a glance what it is, but also not visually dominate the artwork, it needs a balance. But Bill wanted something.. you tell the story, Bill.

Bill – I sent Jim two versions of the logo and told him: One's correct, one's not incorrect. He obviously chose the 'wrong' one. I had made one specifically for him, I wanted the other, and of course he chose that one!

Jim – Usually I'm the one that wants more time on the words, and Bill wants bigger images. But we always strive for a balance between image and picture.

Bill – And sometimes it can be a question of three words, for me.

Jim – Which could be the difference between eight or nine lines! But I think the audience is the winner in the end. It's funny, when I look back on books I see the flaws, but I don't even see the arguments now.

Bill – That's because Jim usually wins! I only remember the arguments when they're really stupid, to be honest. I think we spent two hours arguing over a line by Cliffjumper, which was too 'organic' for the Animated universe, and it made sense not to have it in the end. But two hours, over 'cruising for a bruising'!

Va'al – I may side with Bill on that one, this time. But I also think it's time to bring this chat to an end – so thank you both for taking some time to talk to us, and we'll be showering you with more compliments about the book as soon as more readers get their hands on them!

Jim – Thank you!

Bill – No problem at all!

It's been a long journey, so we make sure to take a different look back in time. Which member of the cast has been on the site the longest? What awesome rockin' topics were all the rage back on August 12, 2010? Click the link to look back, and listen to the latest show to hear us realize that we're getting old. Oh, and don't tell, but this is technically our 101st episode :-$

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
This was once the new hotness


And now I toss it across the pond to our resident King of Comics, Va'al, who stayed up extra late to help us welcome some extra special guests! Take it away Va'al!

(1:05:26)
I'm taking it, ScottyP, takin' it to places where we've never been before: the realm of IDW, and its senior editor John Barber! And John doesn't only work with transforming robots, he has full tapestries of serial killings comics, where GI Joe shows up more than once too.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"


We talked about a number of things with Barber, and you can hear them all if you follow the time mark above, but here's a rundown for you:

Ever wondered how long he's been a part of the franchise? He was there when the comics started. He was there with the cartoons and even with the toys - which still pile-up on his desk regularly, it seems - all long before he became a writer (with the movie stuff) and editor at IDW Publishing.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
Not Barber's desk


Since then, he's been doin' it with style on Robots in Disguise, which has hit a new peak recently with issue #32, and we talked about how he sees Prowl, Thundercracker and what the near future will hold for the cast, especially Galvatron, the Headmasters and a possible Game of Thrones echo.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
Did it work?


With that in mind, we moved even further into the future, and what Combiner Wars might bring us, between six issues of 'the series formerly known as RID' and the returning Windblade series. And Razorclaw000 thinks we get a major scoop about Megastator.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
So close


I also manage to sneak in a question about the highly divisive, but otherwise extremely popular, collaboration with Tom Scioli on Transformers vs G.I. Joe, and just how much fun they have working on it.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
FUN


And to round off, we went back in RID's history to two of the best received issues pre-Dark Cybertron, to look at Soundwave's new spin, and how the cassettes got their voices in the comics.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
Insult-bot: Origins?


If you haven't been reading Robots in Disguise this far, make sure to head to ComiXology or your local comics shop to pick up the Phase Two, Volume 1, any of the trades, or single monthly issues!

And thanks again to John Barber for joining us for this special occasion.


(2:25:54)
We weren't finished! The man of a thousand voices jON3.0 brought along a special guest, the curator/archivist/bounty hunter with a hat - Jim Sorenson! We talked hats, conventions, the Complete Allspark Almanac, past work that he's done for IDW like the Art of Prime and how he juggles it all.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
Jim's robotic avatar, by Kris Carter


Then we looked at what's yet to come, specifically another co-authored book with Bill Forster, a celebration of 30 years of Transformers toys and their packaging art: Transformers Legacy. This will truly be a big, chunky piece of history.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
A BIG book


And as we than Jim for also joining us to celebrate 100 episodes, here is where I launch the laptop back across the ocean, hoping ScottyP will get it to finish writing. Ready, Scott?

-----

Got it! Thanks for the write-up Va'al, and thanks again to everyone that's listened over the years, plus everyone that's dropped into the show! We're only going to get bigger and better from here, so stay tuned over the next four years on the road to episode 200 for fun Transformers talk and more, much more, than meets the ear.

Don't forget, the show only gets better if you tell us how. Drop us a review on iTunes and be sure to tell us what you love, what you hate, and what you want to hear!

Not on the show to give your take? Probably not, so don't forget to keep the discussion going on the Seibertron.com Energon Pub Forums by simply replying to this post!

Got a question for the Twincast? We take all of them, we just don't take them all seriously! Leave a question in the Ask the Twincast thread and, if it makes the cut, it may get read and answered on the show.

Chasing up a tip from fellow Seibertron.com member william-james88, we were able to track down the official BotCon solicit for the Diamond Edition Cover of the 2014 comic, featuring a nice homage to the 1986 Transformers Movie poster with the box set replacing the original cast - check out the art by Marcelo Matere and Thomas Deer below!

Story: Marty Isenberg
Artist Name(s): Hayato Sakamoto
Cover Artist(s): Marcelo Matere

Noble, wise, and loyal to the cause, the KNIGHTS OF CYBERTRON are steadfast in their protection of their homeworld. Any villainy that dare threaten the planet will be met with valiant courage, unwavering will, and Cybertron’s greatest warriors! All that and more will be tested soon enough though…

What remains of UNICRON has cast its shadow over CYBERTRON for years; a constant reminder to the inhabitants of the planet CYBERTRON of the war that almost destroyed their homeworld. Although he has been dormant for a long time, CAPTAIN CANNONBALL, SCORPONOK and the pirate crew of the STAR SEEKERS have arrived to change that. Hoping to use UNICRON's insatiable appetite to drain CYBERTRON dry of energon, the pirates may have underestimated the CHAOS BRINGER's own ambitions...

Featuring an amazing 1986 Transformers: The Movie homage cover by Transformers artist Marcelo Matere with exclusive content included as well!

Transformers Collector's Club 2015 Exclusive #2 Revealed: Marissa Faireborn with Afterburner

Today's the day, the Transformers Collectors' Club has revealed their second 2015 exclusive. As many fans have guessed, the exclusive is GI Joe-related, but not in the way one would expect. The second Club exclusive is... Marissa Faireborn with Afterburner! No mock-up images as of the writing of this post, but according to the Club, Afterburner is a redeco of the GI Joe Wheel Blaster Bike from the GI Joe line in 2012 done up in the colors of the original Generation One Autobot of the same name.


The Transformers Collectors' Club brings the Humans!


Fort Worth, TX - August 14th, 2014 - Fun Publications, Inc., licensee for Hasbro's official Transformers Collectors' Club, is excited to announce their first ever 3 ¾ inch human figure from the Transformers mythos… Marissa Faireborn!

Fans of the Transformers franchise will recognize Marissa as the Earth Defense

 Command (EDC) pilot from season 3 of the original Transformers cartoon. What G.I. Joe fans will recognize is the name, “Faireborn”. As Season 3 of the Transformers series took place a couple decades AFTER G.I. Joe, this crossover character was in fact, as intended by Story Editor Flint Dille who worked on both Transformers and G.I Joe, the daughter of G.I. Joe members Flint and Lady Jaye!

In addition to this great action figure offering, Marissa will also be riding in to action with her Autobot ally, Afterburner! Both will be revealed tomorrow on the Transformers Collectors' Club Facebook page. However, in the meantime we are thrilled to present the art for Marissa Faireborn w/ Afterburner by Robert Q. Atkins and Jesse Wittenrich.

This figure, along with the motorcycle accessory, will be available for order through the Transformers Collectors' Club early Spring 2015. For more information on the exclusive figure offerings of the TCC, including Lio Convoy, Nova Prime and the TFSS 3.0, please visit Transformersclub.com.

The Return of Transformers Shark Week continues with Predacon Sky-Byte

Transformers News: The Return of Transformers Shark Week continues with Predacon Sky-Byte

The Return of Transformers SHARK WEEK continues with Predacon Sky-Byte ...

Yesterday, we featured none other than G1 Sharkticon and his cute little Robot Heroes figure. Today, we take a look at SKY-BYTE in his various forms through the years.

Predacon Sky-Byte transforms into a fierce Great White Shark. He is a fan-favorite character who was nominated previously for the annual Transformers Hall of Fame. He is best known for his antics and love of poetry in the stand-alone Transformers series "Robots In Disguise" which aired on Fox Kids back in 2001. Sky-Byte is a repaint of Beast Wars Transmetals 2 Cybershark. His level of popularity over the original use of his mold makes him a bit of an oddity.

To celebrate Sky-Byte here on Seibertron.com this week, we have updated the gallery for his Robots In Disguise figure. The images in his gallery have been updated to have larger images than it previously had. The "large" 800 pixel wide images have all been replaced with larger 1200 pixel wide images for your viewing pleasure.

In addition, we have included two additional galleries of Sky-Byte in today's feature. The first additional gallery is an all-new version of Sky-Byte, which was recently released as part of the popular Generations line. The second additional gallery is the BotCon 2010 "G2 Redux" version of Sky-Byte which uses the Energon Sharkticon mold with a new head.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Sky-Byte's Hall of Fame Bio:
A proud PREDACON to the core, SKY-BYTE lead his warriors into battle against AUTOBOTS or DECEPTICONS. His desire to be in MEGATRON's good favor drove him - and sometimes he got lost. His skills are legendary amongst the PREDACON ranks. Legendary because SKY-BYTE rarely completed a mission. He has a soft side for poetry - a skill no one else has - or wants. If it weren't for SCOURGE and the DECEPTICONS, SKY-BYTE would never have strayed from the PREDACON cause. In his jealous rage, SKY-BYTE looked to the enemy for acceptance - including KOJI and the AUTOBOTS. Perhaps that is why the AUTOBOTS allowed him to remain free on Earth after the final battle - where he currently roams the ocean attacking illegal fishing vessels.


Shark Week Trivia: Great White Shark
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_white_shark
The great white shark has no natural predators other than the Orca. The great white shark is arguably the world's largest known extant macropredatory fish, and is one of the primary predators of marine mammals. It is also known to prey upon a variety of other marine animals, including fish and seabirds. It is the only known surviving species of its genus Carcharodon, and is ranked first in having the most attacks on humans.
