Seibertron's own lodelco has found some great news regarding IDW's Transformers comics over at Comics Continuum.
Comics Continuum have posted the upcoming March 2008 releases from IDW Publishing and there are a few surprises in store!

First up is Spotlight Grimlock:

Written by Simon Furman, art and cover by Marcelo Matere.

The spotlight now falls on Grimlock, everyone's favorite Dinobot! Once set on a course of action, Grimlock always sees it to the bitter end. But has he now gone too far? Branded a renegade and responsible for condemning his fellow Dinobots to a living death, this time there may be no way back!

Followed by an un-announced surprise, a second Spotlight in March featuring... Mirage?

Written by George Strayton, art and cover by Guido Guidi.

Stepping into the spotlight is the infiltrator Mirage, an Autobot who has long questioned his allegiances in the war against Megatron. But when a temporal accident suddenly shunts him into an alternate timeline, he finally gets the chance to experience life as a Decepticon. Will he embrace his newfound power and wipe out the last of the Autobots, or sacrifice everything to save them?

And another new surprise with the announcement of The Transformers: Focus on Decepticons.

Written by Shane McCarthy and Neil Kleid, art by Nick Roche and more, cover by Don Figueroa.

Starscream. Thundercracker. Skywarp. Shockwave. And, of course, their terrifying leaderŠ the Decepticons represent the greatest threat in the history of Earth -- and now they're about to make their move. What are their plans? What will it mean for fate of mankind? And where are the Autobots, sworn defenders against Megatron's menace? IDW Publishing is set to unveil a globe-shattering Transformers event that will explode across comics pages this spring, and this specially-priced sneak peek features preview art, behind-the-scenes interviews, design sketches, information on the Decepticons of the upcoming Movie Sequel series and more!

With a reprint of Transformers UK Space Pirates #1 to round out the month, March is going to be a big one for IDW Transformers fans!

According to news at TFs@The Moon, E-Hobby will no longer be accepting international orders (and have not been since September 2007).

Does this mean getting an exclusive from them will now be even more difficult and expensive? We hope not!

You might want to question your favorite import store, and see if this will effect their prices dramatically, and start working on some comparison shopping. Or just do without your 'Protect Black Version' of Re-issue G1 Ironhide!
