Zombie Titans. In. Spaaaaaaace
(Spoiler free-ish)



Synopsis
REVOLUTION is over but the danger isn’t over! A wave of undead TITANS threatens CYBERTRON! STARSCREAM will need more than secret police to stop the oncoming horde, but our Fearless Leader finds himself short on friends and firepower. Who can be called upon—and why aren’t they stepping up to the plate?

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Till All Are One #5
Like IDW schedules


Story
Rather than tying up what Windblade was concerned with in Revolution (though not disregarding it), the latest issue of Till All Are One brings us more directly to the aftermath of Titans Return, and Sentinel Prime/Infinitus' plan to unleash zombie Titans upon the universe - as they now approach Cybertron, we catch up...

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Till All Are One #5
Or News Admins..


We know what's coming. We know the Titans are on their way, even if the story had been set on pause for the duration of Revolution, and we're being brought up to speed just when, just as Starscream is in-story, and probably with similar reactions to the Chosen Supreme Leader of Cybertron and his ghost pal, and the rest of the Council of Worlds.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Till All Are One #5
His Pettiness


Mairghread Scott provides a script that allows for a little de-tension before the ramping up of the tension starts again - dotted with some dry humour from the various parties involved - as a planet-wide action is taken to counter the Titans' arrival, allowing for each characters' capabilities to shine...

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Till All Are One #5
Oh hi Zetca!


...but it also provides an excellent foil for a discussion around Windblade's role and position in the new society still forming, as worked towards in the Revolution one-shot already. That, and we have some very interesting deal/diplomacy parallels between her, and her frenemy-nemesis (frenemenemenemenisis?) Starscream himself.

Art

After the break, we have Sara Pitre Durocher take on the Cybertronian environments, as well as the layouts and everything else that comes with the artwork - including some seriously impressive work in conveying the tension of the script in the building of the panels and pages, running through the issue all the way to the handful of climax points towards the end.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Till All Are One #5
Nope, not spoiling


The colours are at the hands of not one but two regular artists: Joana Lafuente and Priscilla Tramontano; both work wonderfully in sync with the linework provided, and carry across the latter's work on the Titans Return books as well as bringing some wonderful backgrounds to life in a very tense sequence or seven. Astounding.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Till All Are One #5
Times, they are a-changin


Similarly, both Chris Mowry and Tom B. Long are involved in the lettering and, production wise, the issue has a fair load of different fonts, voices, effects and soundwords - perfectly handled for otherwise distractingly busy page. As for covers, we've seen the excellently slick Sara Pitre Durocher regular cover way back when, Tramontano's gorgeous 'every anime ever' variant in the preview, and now Jack Lawrence (hey, read our interview with him!) on in the thumbnail, with Prime's best couple.


Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

The issue is excellent. That's my thoughts, right there. The constant build is constant, and incessant, not only in dialogue, script and direction, but also through the visual, the angles provided for the action, the layouts of the pages and the panels, and the decision not to rely on larger pages for the actual climax, but rather as a mid-point punctuation mark.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Till All Are One #5
Obsidian just loves good news


I am very interested in those parallels between Starscream and Windblade I mentioned above, and curious to see whether they develop further. Seeing multiple characters from across the franchise's history work together brought a slow smile to my face, and their voices work really well as the interact with one another. As I said, this is great - and the end point is just evil.

With the Club Subscription Service slowly drawing to a close, we bring to you tonight our latest galleries, that of the Club Subscription 4.0 Impactor and Bluestreak!

Impactor is a retool of Combiner Wars Rook with a fresh new headsculpt that captures the shear determination in the Wrecker Commander's face. He is the second official Impactor toy, behind only his Fall of Cybertron counterpart - who was also part of a combiner - and is the club's sixth subscription figure.

Bluestreak is a repaint of Combiner Wars Prowl and Smokescreen, and this is his first time as being a combiner limb. This Bluestreak also uses the rarely seen "blue" Bluestreak paint job, and he fits right in with the Wreckers as well, considering his personality is that of a sniper. He is the club bonus figure for the 4.0 service.

Check out the preview of the galleries below, and you can go to the full galleries by clicking any one of the images below!

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host ScottyP, plus Megatronus, Counterpunch, and xRotorstomx - listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.

Episode #159 “Imperfect Specks" is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on iTunes and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

After a moment of solemnity, we kick off episode 159 in earnest with a special Black Friday topic: what would the Twincast crew like to see on sale this Black Friday? Our answers vary - and we're sure yours do too. Please post your own Black Friday aspirations in the forum thread below, and visit Seibertron.com for roundups of all the best Black Friday deals.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #159 "Imperfect Specks"
Last year's booty.


Things then move on to Robots in Disguise - Season 3 of the popular RID cartoon has hit the airwaves. We embark on a robust discussion of the first 3 episodes, which hark back to TF:Prime in a big way. What does the podcast think of the relic hunters theme, and its recycling of older character models?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #159 "Imperfect Specks"
Camouflage is the latest fashion this season.


Time for an RID listener question from Seibertron.com member and all around great guy, Sabrblade. To paraphrase his words: any thoughts on the notion of RID season 3's old-fashioned route of "toys first, then media appearances" for the new characters instead of the more recent trend of "media first, then toys?"

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #159 "Imperfect Specks"
Just in time!


We use Sabrblade's question to segue into the recently revealed RID deluxe and legion, including Soundwave, Blurr, Twinferno, and many more. Yes, yes, we know - ScottyP was right about that new RID deluxe Starscream. Do these reveals keep the crew in anticipation, or are they a let down? There's only one way to find out.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #159 "Imperfect Specks"
ScottyP is the actual worst.


Stop! Comics time. TAAO is on the docket, and we continue to enjoy the crossover potential of this series. Between Windblade, Metrotitan, and the revelation that Micronus Prime is responsible for Micro Space (this guy is really getting around the fiction these days), there's a lot to talk about. Revolution 4 has also hit the stands, and gets a rare ultra beatdown of criticism from the Twincast team. Listen in to learn why the awful art, weak villains, and overall poor story have us ready for this force-fed, unnatural crossover of pop culture properties to just end already.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #159 "Imperfect Specks"
Great cover... best left unopened.


MP Megatron is back in the news - as more images proliferate and we learn more about this figure, the more we (or at least, predictably, Megatronus) salivate. ScottyP has an interesting theory: might the upcoming Masterpiece Megatron be a remold of MP Shockwave? Wild speculation ensues.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #159 "Imperfect Specks"
Those legs look... familiar.


After a false start earlier in the episode, we're back to MP32 Optimus Primal. Counterpunch walks us through the joys of this figure, which heightens our expectations for the upcoming Masterpiece Cheetor. Have you gotten your Primal yet? Let us know your thoughts in the thread below. "Make bananas great again."

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #159 "Imperfect Specks"
Peerless.


Bragging Rights. Pure and simple. As we gear up for a good old fashioned Black Friday smackdown, what have we gotten to sate our appetite for converting robots in the meantime?

Transformers News: New Galleries: Takara Beast Wars C-7 Rhinox and VS-7 Rhinox

In a sudden plot twist, that has nothing to do with international political scenarios, we bring you another instalment on Seibertron.com's Beast Wars Tuesdays... on a Wednesday!

Join us this week as we keep fleshing out the Maximal ranks with not one but two galleries from the loveable but deadly mechanical expert and spiritual core to the team: Rhinox. The rhinoceros alt-mode equipped character comes in two versions for the Japanese Takara Tomy Transformers release, both from 1996 - with C-7 as a standalone packaged toy, and V-7 as part of a two-pack with Predacon Shadow Panther. Both identical in their paint changes, which added black eyes and a grey coat to the Deluxe Hasbro release (check it out here).

When Scrap Hits The Fan
A Seibertron.com semi-spoilerish review of IDW Revolution #4


Synopsis
SILENT INTERLUDE! One human has the skill to break into AUTOBOT CITY—but what is SNAKE EYES going to do when he finds himself face-to-knee with OPTIMUS PRIME? And outside, MILES MAYHEM and the M.A.S.K. team wait to see who walks out alive…

Transformers News: IDW Revolution Issue #4 (of 5) Review
1 on 1 on 1... My votes on the little guy


Story

Well, we've reached the next to last issue, the one where we generally get the majority of the major reveals of the whole storyline. The one where the ending will leave you wanting more, with the heroes on the ropes and the bad guys all standing tall in place for their final victory. And, in the case of crossovers, the place where everything generally all comes together.

In some of those respects, Revolution #4 did not disappoint.

The entirety of the Crossover is finally revealed, with everyone falling into place and everyone's adventures finally crossing their final paths, set for the big-named characters conclusion (well, save one that only appeared very briefly so far). At least with regards to bringing everyone together for that big ending, the story has worked out and is good. And the ending of the issue does make you want issue #5 to be here soon.

So, why am I not in love with this comic? Let's take a closer look...

Transformers News: IDW Revolution Issue #4 (of 5) Review
If you think that sonic blast was bad, just imagine if SIREN was in this comic


I can understand the difficulties of bringing together multiple big-name characters and making them all coexist alongside one another. I've seen it done well, and I've seen it fall flat. There is a very specific rhythm you need to set, a very precise way to make the gel that holds it altogether. Unfortunately, this crossover has just not done that. Getting everyone into the comic feels too forced, too clunky, and it is throwing in way too much to handle within the pages of the book itself. It feels rushed at times, underdeveloped at others, and overall just a bit too crazy for my liking. The ordering of the releases is not helping matters either, considering some important expositions have been revealed after they were needed and in some cases entire releases being spoiled by stuff coming out first. It's just not working for the Revolution storyline as a whole.

Art

Art duties have been taken up by Fico Ossio, and there are some places in the book where the art really works and it looks pretty nice. The Micronauts benefit from Ossio's style of art, and ROM and Snake Eyes are not bad either, and considering both do get a fair bit of exposure in the comic, there are some good highlights.

But then there are other parts that just don't work at all. I'm not sure why, but most of the Cybertronians in this issue feel too far removed from their regular designs. Victorion, Arcee, and Windblade in particular feel off this issue, with Arcee being a recurring art difficulty throughout the crossover. It just feels too organic and too stylized for me to like. And the faces are not turning out too well either. Some of the Joes - mainly Scarlett - also suffer a bit in the artistic department, which is strange considering how well the Micronauts have come across.

Transformers News: IDW Revolution Issue #4 (of 5) Review
See, this just doesn't work for me


Sebastian Cheng joins in on coloring duty, and he does a pretty good job of adding some extra spice to the pages, so to speak. His backgrounds do work well, such as the starry night seen below, and the big double-spread battle sequence is helped out by his colors setting parts of the action apart. I particularly liked his work with the Dire Wraiths, despite how bland they are supposed to be.

Transformers News: IDW Revolution Issue #4 (of 5) Review
Now THIS does (just make sure you're looking at the skyline)


Tom B. Long takes up lettering duty, and does not fail to keep the story moving as well as it can with his speech bubbles. The conversations from the viewpoints of the Micronauts are particularly good, seeing as how they give us some good perspective on not being able to understand a single noise others are saying.

Transformers News: IDW Revolution Issue #4 (of 5) Review
;)^


You can also check out a full database that shows off all the covers for this issue (as there were many) as well as a list of all the others who helped contribute to Revolution #4, art and otherwise!

Final Thoughts

Transformers News: IDW Revolution Issue #4 (of 5) Review
Oh Miles, what a gift you have given us this day


As I said before, there is some stuff to like about Revolution, and let's face it: a large crossover with big names does sound like a cool idea. And there are some things that are coming out of the event well (I'm still trying to decide if Action man is better off for not being in this, considering how well his Revolution comic went and I do like him). But as has been said for a couple reviews now, it is just not working out as well as it should have and could have been. This should have been the Avengers of the Hasbro properties world. It could have been a big thing that jumpstarted a comic, continued another excellent comic, and given life to some new comics. Instead, it feels clunky, off, and more like a chore to read than an enjoyment.

I will finish off reading Revolution, but I cannot wait to get back to regular comics. I just wish I could have gotten the enjoyment out of the crossover it truly did deserve, like I did with Transformers: Revolution and Action Man: Revolution.

Big Trouble in Micro Verse
(Spoiler free-ish)



Synopsis
WINDBLADE ON EARTH! The mysterious link between METROTITAN and MICROSPACE threatens to tear two universes apart, and only WINDBLADE has a chance to heal the Titan… and there she learns a terrifying secret that changes the stakes of the REVOLUTION.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Till All Are One - Revolution (One-Shot)
They're definitely in this comic too


Story

We return the world of Till All Are One - which is pretty much the whole universe, given the presence of the Council of Worlds - for this one-shot of IDW's Revolution crossover, only to find out that while the universe out there is much bigger than it seems, it is also much smaller too - and may hold bigger revelations than we thought.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Till All Are One - Revolution (One-Shot)
CLUUUUEEEEESSSS


Some of the lines in this issue, storywise, were vaguely spoiled by the release order of Revolution being off - and we had the Micronus/Microverse reveal in the Micronauts books. And yet, despite knowing where things will end up, Mairghread Scott brings a well-rounded exploration of Windblade's character as a refraction of the universe she inhabits.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Till All Are One - Revolution (One-Shot)
..not promising


As a diplomat, City Speaker, ambassador, and tentative believer, Windblade has been placed in a number of fairly heated debates since her introduction - but here, we finally see once more act as intermediary between powerful, and potentially dangerous, factions, interacting with the Microverse's facets and the events happening in her own space.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Till All Are One - Revolution (One-Shot)
:(


There is some very good material being offered, in terms of dialogue, characterisation (not just for Windblade, but also Shazraella, Micronus Prime, and even Optimus to an extent), and a penchant for darker twists to a story of diplomacy and compromise for greater goods. And I have one extra thought on that last point, below.

Art

Artist Naoto Tsushima, infamous in the Transformers art community for his NSFW work, has reigned in enough of his potentially unsavoury skills - especially for this type of book and narrative - resulting in a seriously stunning and craftily creepy series of pages, including a wonderful deconstruction splash page for Windblade herself.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Till All Are One - Revolution (One-Shot)
Creepy manga face is creepy!


On the colouring side, DAI-XT coordination with the artwork adds an extra dollop of creepy vibes, with a choice of fairly cold palettes, even in the red/pink accents and the excellent grey scales that make up that splash page - which I realise now is also a really interesting parallel with the explosion in the original Windblade run.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Till All Are One - Revolution (One-Shot)
Sky! Space! Gods!


While there is nothing overly fancy with the lettering, it is its usual crisp, clean, good fonted work by Tom B. Long, which is always a pleasure to see alongside nice art. We've shown all the covers - Pitre Durocher and Deer's, and Tsushima and DAI-XT's - with the different previews, and you can check them out again in our database entry for the issue, except for the Ken Christiansen one in the thumbnail. And they're all stunning, actually.


Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

The whole team involved does an excellent job at conveying the delicate balance that Windblade is trying to achieve between four realities (at least) while also still coming to terms with her own place in relation to them - and her identity. The splash page on that point is marvelous.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Till All Are One - Revolution (One-Shot)
Bit of a teasing recap, right here


While there is a good line of enquiry to follow - at some point about - Scott's penchant to place Windblade in ..well, inquisitive contexts, with Starscream-esque parallels in the questioners (literally, in this book, too), there is also a definite dark streak to compromises, deals and greater good. I'm calling Madoka Magica, here, for the record.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host ScottyP, Megatronus, RodimusConvoy13, and xRotorstomx - listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.

Episode #158 “Altered Image" is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on iTunes and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

We start with the Elephant - or should I say Walther P38 - in the room. That's right, MP36 Megatron has been revealed, and the crew is pretty freaking excited. Listen in as we compare this update to its MP-5 precursor, and discuss what we find most exciting about this toy.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #158 "Altered Image"
I would have waited an eternity for this.


While we're on the topic of Masterpiece toys - what Decepticons will be getting the MP treatment next? How closely do our wants match the cold possibilities of reality? We all have our hopes and aspirations, none too realistic - heck, a new Masterpiece Optimus seems more likely.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #158 "Altered Image"
Too much to ask for?


Continuing on the Masterpiece train, we tackle part of a listener question from Skullcrunchberries. Can there ever be a perfect toy representation of a character? What are some examples we could think of, and what makes them so? This segment attempts to answer these questions and more, and don't forget that your questions could get answered too if you use the Ask The Twincast thread.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #158 "Altered Image"
Timely promo shot. Is one "more perfect" than the other?


The long layoff of comics talk ends as we take a look at both Transformers #57 and More Than Meets The Eye #57, which end the Titans Return arc leading in to Revolution. Plot points, reading orders, production, and more come up, and even the not-so-obvious backstory of one particular Decepticon. Plus, find out why in this particular universe, there's no debating that the Space Chicken's name is indeed Deathsaurus!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #158 "Altered Image"
Looking forward to this.


The Revolution is here - and we're excited to see Hasbro's interconnected comics universe take flight. Or at least, we were. Is this crossover event coming at the expense of some of the things that have made TF comics great the last few years? Yes, actually, it's pretty forgettable. Dire Wraiths just aren't interesting, but at least Josh Boyfriend might help the Revolution: Transformers one-shot title temporarily lift us up.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #158 "Altered Image"
That's why I changed my name.


Now for something completely different: what makes the definitive version of a character from the fictional standpoint, and how does the idea of a character transform (pun intended!) over multiple iterations? The crew digs deep into Sparkler Mini-bots, and of course, our favorite despotic Decepticon leader once more.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #158 "Altered Image"
Remember when we were a flying truck and the Batmobile?


Folks have been chomping at the bit for Titans Returns Brainstorm, a Walgreens exclusive. The crew dispenses tips of the hunting trade to increase your chances of finding this sought after figure. Or you can order online. On the fence? Check out Seibertron's pictorial review.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #158 "Altered Image"
Get yours!


We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording? There might even be beasts involved, especially those that have something to do with possibility, but this particular beast probably isn't the one you're trying to connect to Transformers. Don't worry though, plenty of on-topic, Transformers related acquisitions are discussed within!

Transformers News: New Galleries: Beast Wars II X-3 Tripledacus with DJ, Gimlet and Motorarm

Beast Wars Tuesdays continues! We return to the Seibertron.com series of galleries showcasing the products of the 90s that had to do with Beast Wars, Beast Wars II, Beast Wars Neo - given the anniversary of the first series this year - with the three amigos from Beast Wars II: DJ, Gimlet and Motorarm, and their combined form, Tripledacus.

The Jointron brothers are the Japanese counterparts to the Hasbro Tripredacus set (Ram Horn, Sea Clamp and Cicadacon), and feature cicada/torso DJ, legs/lobster Gimlet, and arms/beetle Motorarm, each with a new deco and available as both a gift set and as single figures - probably for the best, given their obnoxious characterisation in the animated series. Check out the full galleries by clicking on any of the images below!
