Website have reported that Transformers 2 writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman have been released from "Michael Bay Jail", after completing the first draft of Transformers 2.

Turns out that "Michael Bay Jail" is actually a luxury Hotel, so it's good to know the two didn't suffer while they were writing.

There will also be at least 1 Star Trek reference in Transformers 2...

So is this part of Bay's 'false information' campaign or the real deal? Feel free to discuss below.

Vince DiCola Interview At 'Music4Games.Net'

'Music4Games.Net' interviews fan-favorite Transformers music composer Vince DiCola because he is recording a new song called "Moon Over The Castle" for 'Gran Turismo 5's Prologue:

Vince DiCola is best known as the composer for Transformers: The Movie (original animated version) and Rocky IV. Among his scoring accolades, he was a co-nominee for the "Best Album of Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or Television Special" Grammy Award for co-writing the soundtrack to the movie Staying Alive and the song "The Touch" from Transformers: The Movie soundtrack won DiCola an Apex award for Best Original Song - Fantasy/Science Fiction/Horror. Having spent the last decade or so producing music with numerous artists and working as a session musician for various recording projects, DiCola recently collaborated with the Japanese band T-Square for the new arrangement of the main theme music "Moon Over The Castle" for Gran Turismo 5 Prologue. M4G caught up with the composer to find out how he got involved with the soundtrack and why he became inspired by the modern age of video game music...

About Transformers music...

M4G: I have to ask a question regarding the many Transformers-based video games that have been released over the years. Was there ever any interest from game developers to have you compose new music for any of these titles? It would have seemed to be the perfect choice for the games.
Vince DiCola: At a Transformers convention years ago a gentleman who claimed to be developing a Transformers-based video game at the time approached me. Nothing ever came of that, however. I would certainly welcome an opportunity to contribute music to any project related to Transformers, considering my history with the franchise.

M4G: Similarly, were you ever considered for the latest Transformers (2007) film?
Vince DiCola: With the help of my long-time friend and manager Robin Garb, my composing partner Kenny Meriedeth and I did submit some material for the 2007 live-action film. We were aware from the beginning that director Michael Bay was specifically looking to distance the new movie from the original animated version as much as possible. As much as I’d like to believe our package at least made it into Bay’s hands based on my history with the Transformers franchise, I have a strong suspicion we were ruled out before he even listened to any of the music we submitted (if he ever even listened at all!). That having been said, many are certainly aware by now that yet another sequel is in the works, and let’s just say I can be persistent!

M4G: To delve back in time for a moment, how did you come to be involved with scoring "Rocky IV" and the original "Transformers: The Movie"?
Vince DiCola: I mentioned my work on the movie “Staying Alive” earlier. That movie was written and directed by Sylvester Stallone, and I had been working with his brother Frank for some time when the “Staying Alive” opportunity came about. As everyone knows, getting ahead in the music business (as with any other business) relies heavily on personal relationships, and I was very fortunate to have had these particular relationships in place when the opportunity for “Rocky IV” came along. (My manager Robin Garb was also the music supervisor for both “Staying Alive” and “Rocky IV”, so that certainly didn’t hurt.)

Read the rest of the interview of the composer of the original Transformers Movie Soundtrack here.

Nice to hear about what Vince is up to lately! 'Dare' and the rest of the original movie soundtrack really scored with Transformers fans, and helped to make that movie what it is to us all. Thanks Vince!

*Thanks to Hans, and others for reminding me that Vince and Stan are indeed separate entities. Apologies to all.

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.


Matt Moylan of 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 .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.

Views: 33,434'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'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!.

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 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 or Ryan Yzquierdo.
