Simon Furman did a "quick" update to his blog concerining his appearance at the London MCM Expo tomorrow. Here's what he had to say:

Just a quick addendum to my last post to let people know that, as well as scripts and stuff, I’ll have 50 advance copies of issue #12 of Titan’s Transformers comic/magazine for sale/signature (ahead of its official 29th May release date) at the London MCM expo. So, if you just can’t wait for part four of the post-apocalyptic Twilight’s Last Gleaming story (plus a whole bunch of other nifty stuff, not to a mention a FREE TF pinball game), make sure you track me down this Saturday (24th). I’ll be wherever the comics people are. Thanks to Titan for making this possible!

So UK fans, here's a chance to not only meet one of Transformers comics greatest writers, but also a shot to get an advanced signed copy of the Titan mag. And maybe a free pinball game! How cool is that?

HASBRO New CEO looking to go beyond toys

The Associated Press is reporting that with his assumption of the Chief Executive Officer position for HASBRO Inc., Brian Goldner is looking to move HASBRO beyond just toy manufacturing. Mr. Goldner believes that the company must look past traditional business and look into more avenues of creation.

Mr. Goldner stated this about current HASBRO products: "What does that look like as an online game? Can that be a cell phone game? Should that be a TV show? Can that be a movie? That's the way we're thinking about our brands today and our strategy for the company."

What could this mean for the future of TRANSFORMERS? We've seen video games and the long awaited live action movie. Could this bring about an online game to the likeness of monster hits such as 'World of Warcraft' or "Everquest'? Could we see a Generation 1 revamp with the new Classics and Universe lines playing the parts? Only time will tell us what plans Mr. Goldner has for HASBRO and its creations.

Most of you are saying "Who?". Some of you may know him as Secret Service Agent Pierce on the show '24'. But we all know him as the Air Force Officer in Charge that told the pilot of 4500 XRAY (Blackout) to power down his engine and step out of the aircraft, "or we will kill you."

Fangora.com did a quick review of the movie he's currently working on, 'Walking Distance' when the producer of the film, James LaMarr stated that "We’re catching [Morshower] right before he jets off to the set of 'Transformers 2.'”

This comes as a HUGE suprise as it was believed that all the military personnel, other than the group lead by Josh Duhamel's character Captain Lennox, we're killed in the attack by Blackout at the base in Qatar.

What could this mean? It's anyones guess.

Freelance writer Shane McCarthy has updated his blog again with a new cover variant for the All Hail Megatron #2 Comic. It's a play off of the original cover that we reported here, but instead of an army brigade silhouette, you have a Megatron silhouette.

Do you remember awhile back, I mean way back, when there was speculation on the boards about a "leaked script treatment" out for TF2? You know, the one that announced Soundwave's appearance with the uber G1 references? Yeah this one.

Anyway, a board member on Shoot For the Edit asked Michael Bay if this was the real deal.

Quote Michael Bay: "That's laughable!"

So for those of you hoping for a triumphant entrance of some old G1 favorites, you may not be getting it.

Shia Labeouf: "I thought I was getting cut from Transformers

Shia LaBeouf has been a busy man lately. With the new release of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull going national this weekend, and his many upcoming projects he's currently working on, he's been all over the globe and all over the media.

Entertainment Weekly got a chance to interview the Transformers star about his newest film Indiana Jones. In the interview, Shia tells us how he happened to get the role for the upcoming film and how he thought he was actually getting cut from TRANSFORMERS the movie. Taken from the EW.com interview:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So how'd you get the gig in Crystal Skull?
SHIA LABEOUF: I had just finished making Transformers [which Spielberg exec produced]. On a Monday, I got a call: ''Steven wants to meet with you at his office on Thursday regarding a movie he's gonna be making.'' Now, anybody who follows film follows Steven, and what he's doing and what's next. The problem is, at that time, Steven was working on about 16 different movies. So I went to [Spielberg's production company] Amblin, and I came into his office. I had started to think maybe I was going to the principal's office.

What do you mean
?
Like that Steven was going to say, ''Listen, we just saw all the Transformers footage, and we're in the midst of cutting you out of the film. And we just wanted to express our thanks for your hard work and efforts.''

But that didn't happen
.
Steven asked, ''Have you ever seen any of the Indiana Jones movies?'' I don't think I talked for five minutes. I had to get up and pace in his office. I was freaking out. I'm speechless. I want to cry. I'm having a panic attack, and I'm sweaty. My heartbeat — you can even ask Steven. He finally said, ''I guess that means yes.''


Not to worry though, Mr. Spielberg was just going to discuss with him the role he would assume in the 4th installment of the Indiana Jones franchise. Shia gives us a good look at what he went through with the filming of his current movie and how keeping plots secret has become apart of his modus operandi.

Australian Freelance writer for IDW Publishing Shane McCarthy has updated his personal blog SMAcTALK with some information regarding his current works.

Most of the blog describes how the time zone differences between the US and Australia force him to work into the wee hours of the morning, having constant communication with editors and artists just to keep a project in motion. But at the end of the blog, he gives us a nice teaser to look foward to. Taken from the Mac:

AHM is plowing ahead at full steam. The artwork coming in across my desk is outstanding and Josh’s colours are out of this world. In addition to that I’ve finished scripting a new Spotlight and I couldn’t be happier with the art team we’ve organised for the book.

To view Mr. McCarthy's full blog and to get a peek at what he has to go through to get us the comics we love so dearly, click here.
