The official Transformers Revenge of the Fallen website has been updated to reflect that the UK release date for the film will be on June 19th, 2009, the friday prior to the original June 24th date. Great news for fans in the UK, but it doesn't stop there. Seibertron.com member Patrick Foley tipped us to this info.

It appears that Michael Bays official website has also had an update done. The counter counting down to the release of ROTF has been shaved by a few days putting the release at a possible June 22nd date. Little strange since that falls on a Monday. Click the links above to see for yourself.

Transformers Comic Writer Extraordinaire Chris Mowry (Reign of Starscream, ROTF Prequels) has updated his blog The Full Mowry with various tidbits of information regarding his work.

Set for release on June 4th 2009, the Trade Paperbacks for both Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Movie prequels Alliance and Defiance have arrived at his office, and while not as packed full of extras as the reign of Starscream trade, Mowry has said that they will include a few extras:
"There's not much by way of extras for them, but you'll find a few sketches in each, rough comps, that kind of thing. I did what I could."

Chris will also be attending Botcon09 as part of IDW's impressive turnout, and mentions that there will be "a pretty cool exclusive that will be available at the show", but will not reveal any further information regarding it.

And on the sales front, Chris also reveals that the ROTF Movie prequels have sold very well with "issues #3 and #4 of both Alliance and Defiance have sold out. The other issues are dwindling down and only a few are left of those."

Once again true believers the time has come for us to gather up the luggage, the spending cash, and the friends/family...Seibertron.com is going to BotCon!

For the past two years we've made it a newborn tradition to gather up forum friends for a Friday night party. May 29th at the Sheraton Hotel we will be invading Charlie's bar/restaurant at 9:00PM in full force. Last year's event had close to 100 of your closest Seibertronian friends drinking, talking about the convention, and generally causing a massive ruckus. Ask anyone who was able to make it out, we all had a great time.

If this is your first time going to BotCon or if you're one of our many valued friends who simply lurk the forums, we especially want you to come out with us! BotCon in of itself is a great time, but you won't be getting your money's worth if you miss out on the opportunity to kick back with your fellow fans for a few hours.

The Staff here at Seibertron.com welcomes any and all from the site (and all other sites for that matter) to come out and share a drink and a laugh with us.

So, here are some of the finer points to know and make note of...

The Sheraton Hotel is located at: 303 East Cordova Street �· Pasadena, California 91101

It's right next to the convention center.

For those who aren't going to the convention, your boy Counterpunch here is going to do his best to drop updates.

Leave any questions here and I'll do my best to answer them. This year's convention is shaping up to be a great event. We're looking forward to meeting up with old friend's not seen since last year as well as all the new blood who will be showing up or making themselves known for the first time.

All the best.

25 years of Transformers comic!

Simon Furman, one of the best known Transformers comic writers, tells
Totalscifionline.com why Transformers has remained so popular over the past
25 years

"From the classic 80s versions of the characters to Beast Wars to the movie
universe and beyond, Transformers is always keeping pace with each
successive generation of kids, and many of those kids stay engrossed and
excited by Transformers all the way into adulthood. Why? Because of the
amount of detailed and loving background work and story content that goes
into each reinvention, both from Hasbro and the creators involved in comics,
animation and movies. There's a real three-dimensional nature to both the
characters and the world(s) they inhabit.

"Back when we doing the UK Transformers comic in the 80s, my approach was
never to write down to kids or pull punches with the nature and reach of the
stories we were telling. Our audience responded very positively to that, and
it's another part of why, I think, those young fans kept reading, watching
and enjoying Transformers as they grew up. I still try bring those 'adult'
sensibilities to my Transformers work today, because the movies have brought
another new generation of kids into the fold and my aim is to keep them
reading!"
