The second installment of the "Revelation" series will be coming soon as Simon Furman has posted a script wrap for the next issue - Spotlight: Hardhead. Heres and excerpt from Simon's blog:

Here we go with a post-script autopsy of Transformers Spotlight: Hardhead, the second part of the “Revelation” quartet. As spoiler-free as possible but there are some wicked teases. Be warned. Once again, the challenge here was to both create a rounded (complete in one issue) character focus and maintain the breathless, headlong forward pace of the main Revelation/Dead Universe arc (begun in earnest in Spotlight: Cyclonus).

You can view the entire entry and script wrap in Simon Furman's Blog here.

Mark Simon of "Mind Your Business" reports that personal created works such as drawings, writings and video's that you've done may not belong to you much longer. A new legislation is in the works to make any form of publicly displayed art free for use by major corportations. This could mean any Transformers related works you've done and posted online could be at risk!!!


Here is an excerpt from the article:


Mind Your Business: You Will Lose All The Rights to Your Own Art
Mark Simon is mad as hell and, in this month's "Mind Your Business," he tells you why you should be too.
As you know, I usually handle the subjects in my articles with a sense of humor. That is not the case this month. I find nothing funny about the new Orphan Works legislation that is before Congress.


UPDATE!!!!

Matt Moylan of Lilformers.com has made this announcement with a reference link to contradict earlier reports of creative works rights loss.

Matt Moylan- I've sen many journal posts by artists today about this orphaned works mini-panic by artists.
(Ahhh! we're going to lose all our rights! OH NOES!! etc) The first place I went after reading about it was boingboing.net .They're very on the ball about any threats to copyright protection.

They are directing everyone to this article, which explains clearly how there is currently no such legislation, and how the guy generally doesn't know what he's talking about:

Good read, I think it will put many minds at ease.

Seibertron.com's own Burn has posted a new monthy E-zine covering info, interviews and a peek behind the curtain of Heavy Metal War. Here is Burn's original post with the updated E-zine:



Welcome to "Behind Enemy Lines", what will hopefully be a monthly e-magazine dedicated to all things HMW.

It began by a suggestion from Hollow One that someone come up with an idea to fill in the gap left by Kamjin and Frontline's disappearance.

Thus Behind Enemy Lines was born. The concept is simple, showcase as much of the talent the HMW playing community has to offer as well as interviews, news, crosswords, well, basically anything that can be crammed into it that people will hopefully enjoy.

And hopefully we'll do it monthly!

As of Issue Zero there is only one full time position on the magazine "staff" and that's myself as Editor and Compiler. Will there be other positions opening up? Yes and No.

Because this magazine will be open to EVERYONE to contribute to. Whethere you can draw, write, photoshop, kitbash, compile a puzzle or whatever you feel you can contribute, you can. This is a magazine for YOU made by YOU. There are absoloutely no limitations on it.

Now I think i've just about covered everything in how this is hopefully going to work, so let me tell you about Issue Zero. It's a "preview" issue, 10 pages in total (including the cover). Seems a bit small? It is, because it's just that, a preview issue, to show you how the magazine will be set up.

We've got a sample of a REALLY old interview from Mkall.
Artwork of Gore.
MTMTE bios from Tammuz
A brief excerpt from JP's story for the "Echoes of the Past tournament.
And most importantly, an update on Alpha Strike! :grin:

So enough from me, it's time we got on with the show. At this current point in time you have three options for downloading and reading this comic.

• ImageVenue links, complete with thumbnails. - Just click on them to open them up and read. I went with IV because the files are too large for Seibertron.com's attachments option and too large for Photobucket.

• A zip file hosted at Rapidshare - Just download the file and unzip it and use your image viewing program to read

• A CBZ file hosted at Rapidshare - This is pretty much the exact same file as the zip file, just the extension is renamed. This is the format used for digital comics. To open it you need to use CDisplay to view them.

Yeah, i'll shut up and post now.

[size=200">ISSUE ZERO





{ ZIP File } | { CBZ File }

Any problems with any of the links let me know ASAP!.

NOW GO AND ENJOY!

Anne Bryant, composer of the original Transformers theme song, has sent us a fun political parody video that I thought I'd share with all of you. It's not really Transformers news, though I'm sure those of you who've been on Seibertron.com long enough know that I sometimes like to step outside the lines with the information that gets posted here. Anne has been an absolute joy to talk to over the past few years and I'm happy to help her out from time-to-time.

So, without further ado, put aside your political views and check out her video that she created alongside Ellen Bernfeld (the singing character of "Pizzazz" from Jem and the Holograms). Just for the record, this video does NOT express the views and opinions of Seibertron.com or Ryan Yzquierdo.

All Hail Megatron: Shane McCarthy's Sales Pitch

IDW Publishing's new Transformers Comic Editor Denton Tipton has kept his blog updates flowing like the Guinness from an Irish Pub on St Patricks Day, with his latest update letting us go inside the mind of "All Hail Megatron" writer Shane McCarthy.

Denton has given us an excerpt of the sales pitch McCarthy used when selling the "All Hail Megatron" series to the head honchos of IDW...

Just how bad can it get?

The measure of any hero is the obstacles he faces or the villains he must vanquish. If a hero's villains are weak or ineffectual, then the hero, by the most rudimentary of logic, mustn't be all that powerful or indeed heroic. If we're going to see what our heroes are truly made of, we need to deliver a villain (or, in this case, villains) who push the heroes to the breaking point and beyond, that not only challenge them physically, but mentally and spiritually as well.

With the Transformers, we have at our disposal some of the greatest villains ever to grace modern-day pop culture. These guys are, apparently, the nastiest of the nasty; what is Megatron if not a 60-foot-tall metal tyrant with a nuclear cannon strapped to one arm? So, let's take the gloves off, unhook the leash and see just what the Decepticons are made of.

If we're going to understand the validity of the Autobots as protectors, it's about time we say what would happen if the Decepticons were left unchecked!

So what are we really trying to do here?

We'll be bringing a “real world” approach to the book to show the ramifications of the Transformers' civil war on our planet. It will also be the goal of the series to better explain, reveal and expose the characterization of the individual Transformers and their respective ideologies.

In the end, execution is everything, and we'll be achieving all of this by using a wild, widescreen-style approach. Each issue will slam the reader in the face with exciting visuals and continuing reasons to come running back each and every month. More than anything, we need to restore the awe and majesty to the Transformers and remind people not only of their continuing relevance as fictional characters, but of the very reason we fell in love with them to begin with.

Nothing can top the sheer spectacle of giant robots battling it out on our planet for the sake of the universe!


The teaser/prequel for "All Hail Megatron", "Focus on the Decepticons" will be available in comic stores around the globe from today Wednesday 9th of April 2008.

IDW Publishing's Editor in Chief Chris Ryall has found out himself that he has been nominated for "Best Editor" at the British Eagle Awards.

Unfortunately IDW was overlooked for a nomination in the "Best Publisher" Award, and it barely comes as a surprise that no Transformers Comics were nominated for an award either.

To see why Ryall believes you should vote for him as "Best Editor" over the other candidates, check out his blog, and you can head on over to the British Eagle Awards Voting Page to cast your vote.

MTV had a brief interview with Shia Lebeouf about the 4th Indiana Jones installment and an injury mainly, but the young actor also threw in his two cents about TF2:

Shia Gets Injured On Indy 4; Gears Up For Transformers 2


One's a 65-year-old actor masquerading as the biggest action star on the planet, the other's a 21-year-old at the peak of his physical prowess. So guess which one got injured on the set of 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull'?

You get two chances, and your first one doesn't count.

"I pulled a rotator cuff in my hip," Shia LaBeouf said, gesturing to his waist. "It's the only time in my career I've ever been injured. What happened was, because the injury got worse and worse as the movie went on, I pulled my groin also. [The groin] is not a good thing to have anything happen to."

But injuries are temporary, and film is forever. And this particular scene, the one where he pulled his hip, just happens to be his favorite scene in the movie...one where he gets to finally step into the light as the heir to Indiana Jones.

And we can't tell you a darn thing about it yet. Though we will say (because Shia admitted to it on the red carpet), that it has to do with a sword fight. Look for more news about that scene and the first full interview with Shia about 'Indy 4' on MTV News in the coming weeks.

Before then, though, there's the matter of another little sequel that Shia wants to put on our radar. "We're gearing up for 'Transformers 2' in June," he announced.

As for what he'd like to see out of his robot pals, Shia has just one request "It's got to be more badass," he exclaimed. "It has to be."
