The Ask Vector Prime Facebook page, set up for the fictional paratext to BotCon 2015 is still running popular and fairly strong, and the Transformers Collectors' Club has just used it to 'reveal' - as it were - the names of the remaining two Rainmakers in the fiction.

The blue and yellow Seeker-bodied characters will now be known, to those of you following this exciting development, as Nova Storm and Ion Storm, and join their sibling Acid Storm. Read more below, and here, and check out the artwork by fellow Seibertronian bdixonarts!

Dear Vector Prime,

What are the names of the yellow and blue seekers who, along with Acid Storm, make up the trio known as the Rainmakers?
.
.
Dear Precipitation Pal,

The Rainmakers are foes most perilous, doing Shockwave's cold bidding on Cybertron and, in some timestreams, on Earth.

The yellow Seeker is known as Nova Storm. This humorless knave nearly winged me with his Trilithium Crystal Cannons. His armor is hardened against heat and radiation, enabling him to function in the heart of a volcano or even, for a short period of time, the outer chromosphere of a star. He is one of the few bots able to withstand the presence of Sunstorm, Shockwave's prototype for Seeker body-modification, for extended periods.

The blue Seeker goes by Ion Storm. I am fortunate enough to have never encountered this cocky Decepticon, for he is an electrokinetic of the first order. This ability could, in theory, generate an electromagnetic pulse and disable all electronics in an area, though I suspect doing so would leave him nearly helpless.


I'd like to thanks Brandy Dixon for providing the artwork, and Betsy Blackie and Bill Forster (along with Brandy) for help with names and bios. Dixon is the colorist, with line art by Rui Onishi and Berious.

Transformers News: SDCC 2015 - Activision Transformers: Devastation Official Press Release and Packaging Images



Hello!

Today at Comic-Con International: San Diego, Activision Publishing, Inc. and developer PlatinumGames Inc. released a new gameplay trailer for their upcoming third-person action-brawler, TRANSFORMERS: Devastation. Blasting off with a showdown between cosmic rivals, this new in-game footage puts the heavy metal clash of the heroic AUTOBOTS and insidious DECEPTICONS front and center with explosive cel-shaded detail.

TRANSFORMERS: Devastation brings Hasbro’s converting robot titans to life with classic Generations styling and modern attitude. This new trailer highlights four of the five playable heroes in the game – OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, SIDESWIPE and WHEELJACK – as well as notorious foes like MEGATRON, STARSCREAM and the towering combiner, DEVASTATOR. Whether leaping into vehicle form to ram enemies at high speed or juggling them in mid-air with a flurry of blinding-fast combos, the dynamic action of TRANSFORMERS: Devastation is so close it’s personal.

TRANSFORMERS: Devastation is expected to launch later this year on the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC via Steam.

Those of us clamoring for an animated series based on the popular Combiner Wars series, rejoice: it's happening! Via The Hollywood Reporter, we have received word that Combiner Wars will receive an animated series from Machinima, who are well known for creating content within the video gaming community, including works from the popular Halo series. Read about the collaboration below!

The Transformers are coming to Machinima.

Hasbro, the toy company-now-play brand, has partnered with the online gamer and video platform to produce a new animated series based on its Transformers: Combiner Wars line.

Combiner Wars is a storyline that has been playing out across Hasbro’s toys and IDW comic books for the past year and the upcoming Activision video game Transformers: Devastation.

Insiders say it’s the first time these many synergistic elements have been combined by Hasbro to tell an overall story.

Additionally, Habsro is giving something a segment of its large Transformers audience has been demanding for years, namely an animated series aimed at an older audience.

“Our audiences are huge fans of the toy, comics, movies and video games, and for us to continue the legend with the Combiner War is a unique story-telling opportunity,” said CCA Daniel Tibbets.

Said Hasbro’s senior vp of the Transformers franchise, Tom Warner: “(Machinima is) the perfect partner to help launch a totally new kind of Transformers animation—one that, for the first time ever, is specifically designed for the teen and adult fans who’ve grown up loving the Transformers brand.”

Without going to deep into the complexities of the Transformers universe, Combiner Wars saw groups of Transformers be able to combine into one giant robot, known as a Combiner. Superion and Menasor were among the new robots that held the fate of the Transformers’ homeworld Cybertron in their hands.
