As hinted in the Legends LG-09 Brainstorm gallery posted yesterday, we now have galleries available for Takara Transformers Legends LG-08 Swerve and Tailgate. You can use these to compare with the Hasbro versions and see what the differences are. Since these are only sold as a full set from Takara, some collectors have one or the other already and may be wondering if these are worth the double dip.

Click any of the images below to be taken to the full gallery to see Swerve, Phaser, Tailgate and Groundshaker.

From our source that provided the picture of the highly anticipated Combiner Wars Devastator earlier, we now have a second blurry/distant look at Devastator that shows a little bit more of the robot mode. We cropped the photo to help all of us get a slightly closer look. This photo is from the same anonymous user who provided us with the first picture we posted earlier today at this news story.

Seibertron.com wants a picture of Combiner Wars Devastator to share exclusively with our users! Devastator is currently on display at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany. We're putting out a bounty to get our first peak at Combiner Wars Devastator.

Here's our offer ... I will pay $50 to the first person who can provide a clear high res shot of Combiner Wars Devastator. The image that you provide us must be exclusive to Seibertron.com. The photo you provide can't show up on anywhere online (other than on Seibertron.com) or at Facebook, Twitter, other social media websites, photobucket, other Transformers fansites, etc. If the image is from a series of pictures (i.e. pictures from slightly different angles/positions), all images must be provided. If you don't want to provide the other pictures, that's fine as long as they don't show up elsewhere online. If similar pictures show up elsewhere online from you, the agreement is null and void. Payment will be sent via Paypal two weeks after the pictures are received as long as the pictures remain exclusive to Seibertron.com.

Just to be 100% clear, if Hasbro does not allow photos of these products at this event, then we kindly ask that you abide by their request. We are not asking people to break rules and that was not our intention with our request. We don't want anyone risking their job or their access to Toy Fair plus we want to stay on Hasbro's good side too! If nothing else, this just adds to the excitement and continued discussion about one of the most anticipated Transformers toys ever.

Please use the contact form at /contact/index.php to let us know you have pictures of Combiner Wars Devastator. We will respond immediately to work out the details with you.

Below is the blurry picture we received earlier today. We are looking for a clear, high res shot. It can't be obstructed or blurry and must be high res so that we can crop the image to view the details.

With the official Hasbro commercial just showing up, we're happy to share fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999's video review of the Optimus Prime set from the Transformers Kre-O Battle Changers line. Check out the video embedded below!

I was never sure if I'd see these sets released in the US but with a commercial popping up on Hasbro's YouTube channel there may be some hope yet. Optimus Prime is a fun build but keep in mind that the Transformation may be a bit fiddly causing parts to pop off.

Synopsis
THE STONE ARMY! The secrets of DRIFT’S past become his present-day problems… and RATCHET’S none too happy about being dragged along!

Transformers News: IDW Transformers Drift: Empire of Stone #3 Review
Oh Ratchet


Story

We've arrived at the third chapter of the four-issue mini-series following Drift, after his exile from the Lost Light, and in case you hadn't noticed... Drift is an ex-Decepticon turned Autobot with issues, gone ultra good then riddled with guilt and in search of redemption - and the search leads him to a place from his past. Got it?

Transformers News: IDW Transformers Drift: Empire of Stone #3 Review
Got it


What Shane McCarthy brings to the table in this issue, other than some usual Animated-esque-via-MTMTE Ratchet sass, is a fairly decent twist on the situation as it currently stands, despite some predictable behaviour from the characters involved. Though the plot may have seemed clear from early on, we get a slightly different look at it by this point.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers Drift: Empire of Stone #3 Review
Ratchlock


So if you're expecting a complicatedly weaving plot entwined with multiple layers of social commentary, this is not your port of call. What we do get, though, is yet some great interactions between pretty much all characters involved, some fairly twisted motivations reminiscent of 'bad guys' already encountered in this development of the IDWverse, and some very nicely staged action.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers Drift: Empire of Stone #3 Review
Care to tango?


What I am still waiting for, really, is a clue as to how all of Empire of Stone will impact not only More Than Meets the Eye, as the solicits keep telling us, but also the wider Transformers fiction established at this point - and this issue, in Hellbat and the Stone Army, possibly hints at it all, at last.

Art

If the action is greatly staged, as Guido Guidi and Stephen Baskerville have shown us in all collaborations so far, this issue really cranks it up a notch. There's a magnificent slow build of smaller to wider layouts as the action escalates, with some truly stunning full splash pages showing off the scale of what the characters are actually playing against.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers Drift: Empire of Stone #3 Review
Oh. Ok


Not to forget the gloriously gritty look of the book, and the stark contrast with some much sleeker, cleaner visuals for the main background characters under Gigatron's so-called command. John-Paul Bove's colours make sure those are not traits to be missed, and we should revel in his marvellous deployment of pigmented layers.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers Drift: Empire of Stone #3 Review
Indeed


With so much action still running through so much of the issue, and the interior monologues that Drift uses to narrate and expose the story, Tom B. Long's lettering has plenty of time and space to shine - though parsimoniously used, the touches add some good voicing to exasperated characters. Cover A is a wonderfully expanded and context-free panel from the issue itself, by Guidi and Bove, while Ratchet takes the spotlight in Sarah Stone's glorious variant - see thumbnail!


Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

The main draws of this issue, and so far the series as a whole, come down to a handful of things: first, the seriously stunningly mapped out action sequences and fight scenes, thanks to the fantastic work of the visual team working on McCarthy's script. Every issue just looks absolutely stunning and almost tangible in its grainy stoneness.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers Drift: Empire of Stone #3 Review
Ok, that got me


But the possibly even bigger incentive, and one that has taken me three issues to fully grasp (heh), is the development of the relationship between Drift and Ratchet, not only as a means for the former to come to terms with his own identity issues, but for both of them to grow from where they set out with that moment as Drift left the Lost Light crew.
