So were you thinking about buying a new car, and wondering how in the world you could work it so you could get a free collectible toy out of the deal too?

Look no further. Apparently Chevy is having a promotion and all you need to do is buy an Aveo and you get a really cool new and exclusive Transformers Autobot Swerve (new mold!!!) limited to only 2000 pieces.

We have two links for you. One is to AcToys showing all modes and a size comparison to deluxe movie Concept Bumblebee.

Autobot Swerve on AcToys

And the other is an auction...

Exclusive Autobot Swerve Auction

Let's hope there is a way to get this that does not involve shelling out tons of money. Or those of us who are Transformers completists will also be driving brand new Aveo's shortly.

The NY Times has posted a very interesting follow-up article to all of the drama from the past day or two regarding the HD-DVD / Blu-Ray battle. The article states:

"Paramount and DreamWorks Animation together will receive about $150 million in financial incentives for their commitment to HD DVD, according to two Viacom executives with knowledge of the deal but who asked not to be identified."

First Re-Issue Ultra Magnus and now this...

Yes, it appears to be true, but don't get too excited, the prices are a bit outrageous at $98.72 for each, except Starscream who is $79.88.

All are listed as IN STOCK even Megatron.

Here are the links:

Optimus Prime

Megatron

Starscream

A product description from Megatron:


Features & Specifications

Transformers Encore original style transforming robots
TRANSFORMER Megatron - G1 New PackageDesign. This 6 inches Transformer Megatron PVC figure in the alternate mode of a Walther P 38. Megatron is the Decepticon leader. This is a remake of the Original Collection piece, which are nearly impossible to find now and was one of the best selling items when the first edition came out. This revised figure features some new parts (i.e. new molds).
Shipping Weight (in pounds):

3.0
Product in Inches (L x W x H):

16.0 x 16.0 x 8.0
Assembled in Country of Origin:

USA and/or Imported
Origin of Components:

USA and/or Imported
Wal-Mart No.: 000784718"


I cannot imagine a lot of people will buy it from Walmart as you were able to get a set for less than half that amount from most online retailers.

However, many have sold out, so this option is now available.

Is this a test to see how well imported collectible toys would sell on the wholesale market? Or something else?

Let us know what you think!

A few weeks back, Chris Ryall showed a sample teaser of the entry for Beast Wars Bazooka, from the soon to be released BEAST WARS PROFILES comic books by IDW.

More line art has been found and shared. The pictures are of fan favorite Injector, Saberback in his more than interesting third mode, and Transmetal Tarantulas in spider mode. You can see the pictures in the thread here.

Chris Ryall, the editor-in-chief of IDW Publishing has posted an update on the IDW forums where he talks about his recent work at the Comic-Con and Chicago convention and his future plans for IDW, including new Spotlights and new comic series. He also talks about his impressions of the new Transformers Animated series.

But most interesting is the fact that he has revealed what the bonus feature on the Transformers Movie DVD will be. The rumoured "additional footage" that voice-actor Mark Ryan had mentioned awhile back is in fact an animated version of the IDW Movie Prequel comic series, with Peter Cullen again reprising his role as Optimus Prime. According to Chris Ryall, this bonus feature will only be available with the Wal-Mart excusive version of the Transformers Movie DVD, no official release date has been set as of yet, so stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more info.

See the whole post by Chris Ryall here.

:
Between Comic-Con, last weekend's Chicago con, and a trip to Hasbro, plus all kinds of general work overload, I know I haven't been around here much. But that doesn't mean I don't care...

In fact, in that time away from here, I've been making plans. Big plans. And then off to Hasbro to run these plans by the Powers-That-Be. And lo and behold, they loved them and are into said plans. Which means that 2008 is going to be BIG. I don't say this with any hyperbole, but next year's going to really rock your worlds.

These plans include movie-related comics, multiple Spotlights, another crossover, a new mini- (or maybe maxi-)series that will really wow you and answer some old questions, and the big SOMETHING ELSE. I'm pretty excited.

I also watched the new Transformers Animated Movie, the kick-off of the upcoming series, and it's a blast. I actually thought it might be a bit too "young" since it's aimed at the 5-9 crowd, but I shouldn't have questioned Sam Register and his crew--it's a lot of fun, and the characters and voices are great. As are the new toys, that looks just like the designs. I know people have taken shots at it based on the little bit they've seen online, but it's gonna win people over. Especially that first scene.

Oh, one other TF thing--I watched the DVD extra that's going to be included on the Wal-Mart only Movie DVD release. It's an animated version of the entire Movie Prequel miniseries, with voicework from Peter Cullen and others. Good sound effects, cool movement of panels and voices... it's pretty awesome to see our comic turned into something like that. And having Cullen speak our words is an insanely exciting thing, too.

So, yeah, good times are ahead.
