While the Takara Tomy Transformers/Neon Genesis Evangelion Eva Mode Convoy repaint of MP-10 may already be sold out (though some of our site sponsors still have a handful of orders), another update to the story has been uploaded to the product site! Check out some new artwork of Eva Convoy battling the Angel Starscream, and an attempted translation of the accompanying text.

"How has the human race been able to make such a huge robot?!"
A strange sensation came over Convoy, on seeing the giant figure.
(No... this feeling... not a robot? Seimeinokodou, call this the primitive ...?)
[Convoy Scanning Eva first aircraft to be guided], it suddenly grew in size. Its body and colour changing to match that of the EVA Unit-01.
"Now... now Transformers are... Eva ...?"
Misato of the Nerv staff was stunned by the scene in front of her.

The gigantic Convoy turned to face the Angel Scream, opening its chest armor to increase its cry.
"Uoo O~o~o~o~o Golfo ...!"
The Matrix held in its chest was as red as the core of the Angels, shining as if a new life had been born.
A new battle, a different stage... begins.

“..Scattergun of the Fourth Vorsk Offensive..”

“You think that’s bad, try Dipstick of Operation: Doom Patrol...”


Transformers News: Re: Sneak Peek - Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #31 - Dawn of the Autobots


What could be worse than that? (Lack of action in this setup issue maybe?)

Previous issue stuff: Last issue the crew of the LOST LIGHT found themselves having to abandon ship as whole portions of their ship (and then eventually the whole ship) just disappears...

Spoiler Free-ish plot in 31. The LOST LIGHT disappeared leaving the crew floating about in space in whatever shuttle/raft/craft they could sardine themselves into trying to rationalize the ‘WHY’ and 'HOW' they can find it. In this issue, we are privy to a conversation being had on the famous ROD-POD about what could have happened to the big LL, and Nautica explains some heavy theory based on the quantum engines.

Transformers News: Re: Sneak Peek - Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #31 - Dawn of the Autobots
Umm...for sure...yup...got it (no I don't).


But then, like an old soap opera mystery plot, the lights go out mysteriously, and members of the ROD-POD start disappearing. Megatron is blamed, a stowaway is found... will the ROD-POD crew led by Nightbeat deduce who or what keeps causing their fellow shipmates to disappear before their ALL gone? Are the missing offline? What is the connection between the individuals who’ve disappeared? Who will be next? How does a fifty foot human girl find her way into the story? Can the probability/improbability of something happening truly be a fuel source?

Transformers News: Re: Sneak Peek - Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #31 - Dawn of the Autobots---light bulb---

Transformers News: Re: Sneak Peek - Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #31 - Dawn of the Autobots
The extent of the action in this issue.


Transformers News: Re: Sneak Peek - Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #31 - Dawn of the Autobots
Hand jive!


Some opinioning. MTMTE has become a fan favorite due to its smart plot and dialogue, and smarter characters. It’s fun and silly, but intellectual; brings back my childhood, but challenges me as an adult reader, and each issue seems to leave the reader wanting more. Best kind of book in my opinion. The art styles, colors, panels, and layouts are usually partnered well in telling the story.

This issue is NOT jam-packed from cover to cover with robot-blasting-robot/alien action. But it’s still makes for a very interesting read, although it is packed with dialogue and long-winded (detailed!) explanations. We’re getting introduced to the history of the LOST LIGHT, and through that, we are introduced to more of each crew member’s nuances, and even more so, about TRANSFORMER societal, and historical details that we may not have known about before.

Transformers News: Re: Sneak Peek - Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #31 - Dawn of the AutobotsNautica, you forgot something in your explanation...my gun.


For example, just how smart are Nautica and Highbrow? Swerve has Logorrhea (whatever that may be, but it sounds like it may be running at the mouth). Riptide has an unreliable transformation cog. Megatron fears revealing too much about himself, and still counts himself as separate from the Autobots. Crosscut likes to write dramas...the list goes on. Within those data bits, we start to get more 'flesh and blood' characters. Sure some of its silly, but much of it is actually...well..awesome.

Transformers News: Re: Sneak Peek - Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #31 - Dawn of the Autobots
Spoiler: I've shown all of the action shots...


And for me, that’s what has been one of the best things about the MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE series. It’s an enjoyable story to be sure, but it helps me to better understand the society and history of the universe my favorite characters inhabit, and just how much there is that has never been thought of. From the earlier ‘Shadowplay’, the Institute, and senate ‘stuff’ to Tyrest, the DJD, Decepticon kamikaze bombers/bombs, and made to order Autobots... there has been quite a lot to learn about that has birthed many of our favorite characters' beliefs, actions, and qualities.

Transformers News: Re: Sneak Peek - Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #31 - Dawn of the Autobots


“It’s strange isn’t it? So many Autobots owe their lives to you. Without your war they wouldn’t be here.” Interesting statement AMIright? Read issue #31 at least twice to take it all in, or very carefully the first time, and don't get put off by the lack of action, it's all leading somewhere...

Transformers News: Re: Sneak Peek - Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #31 - Dawn of the Autobots
"You Autobots"-Swerve's right.

Transformers News: Re: Sneak Peek - Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #31 - Dawn of the Autobots
Sorry, no he's not...


The Writing and Letters are top notch as always, thanks to James Roberts, John Barber and Tom B. Long. (Just a few missing words here or there that were a little annoying--probably due to me reading the ‘review’ copy and not the final version).

The lines and inks by Atilio Rojo are fair (I guess I'm not feeling too generous). At times, I think it’s good stuff, the first pages with Drift for example, but at other times I feel like it goes way too simple in representing the characters (Gears and Huffer) and to me the robots feel lacking in size, weight, detail, and scale. Now, granted, there's a fairly stale setting for the issue, and a small set group of characters, so Rojo may not have been able to really get in his groove. It works, but it's rough, you may like it, but I’m missing Alex Milne a little more.

Joana Lafuente handles the colors well, most notably, skillfully making a distinction between past events and current events using color (going for that sepia-esque overall treatment in the past).

Overall, for what is action-wise, a pretty slow story that takes place in a very confined setting, I enjoyed this issue a lot. Again, it’s mainly due to the character development, as well as, the further development of the history, society, and lore of the TRANSFORMERS. Grab this issue tomorrow at your local comic shop!

According to Variety Magazine , Transformers: Age of Extinction is making more money in China than it is in the US. Numbers released Tuesday by the China Movie Media Group, a partner in the production of AoE, report that the film made $134.5 million in China, versus the $121 million made in the United States after five days in theatres. The film has also broken the record set by, “The Monkey King,” a production of China-Hong Kong, which grossed $133 million across 11 days—and it has done so in half the time.

It’s likely at this point that the fourth installment of the live action movies will surpass “Avatar’s” record of $217.7 million in China. It is pretty rare for a Hollywood film to surpass its stateside gross in a foreign country, however, Paramount Pictures work hard to incorporate Chinese aspects into the film. Also, China Movie Media Group, the largest promoter and distributor of films in China, collaborated with an American studio for the first time, providing advertising, online ticketing, and other support. For comparison sake, Dark of the Moon grossed roughly $165 million in China.

Thanks to a tip from fellow Seibertron.com user Rodimus Prime, we can share an article on ComingSoon.net regarding the opening numbers for recently released (in several countries, though not all around the world) Transformers: Age of Extinction. As of June 28th 2014, the total national US gross was $41.6 million, with an international total of $80 million in its first three days! Read part of the full article below, and head here for more - and make sure to discuss the fim on our boards!

Transformers News: Transformers: Age of Extinction Makes $41.6 Mln Opening, $80mln Internationally


Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction, starring Mark Wahlberg, opened on Thursday night to the tune of $8.8 million in previews and it's now being reported that it has grossed an estimated $41.6 million its opening Friday (including those previews).

UPDATE: "Age of Extinction" grossed $52 million internationally in 36 markets on Friday, bringing its international total to $80 million after three days. China brought in a record-breaking $30 million in a single day in its regular and IMAX theaters, the latter 148 screens making up 24% of the total IMAX screens globally.

This is the biggest opening day for any movie this year, giving it the best chance at being the first movie of the year to gross over $100 million its opening weekend, although there are other factors to consider before jumping to that conclusion.
