Transformers Revenge of the Fallen star Tyrese Gibson has been hitting the Comic Con trail this weekend in San Diego California, giving attendees a chance to talk with him and promote all the new projects he's going to be involved in.

According to a report at Blast Magazine, he assured Comic Con goers that Sgt. Epps will be back for Transformers 3 and that Director Michael Bay will be at the helm once again directing the third installment to the live action franchise.

“Michael Bay, he definitely needs to take a break from (“Transformers”), understandably so, but this is the movie — the biggest movie he’s ever directed in his life,” said Gibson. “And so, he can keep producing all of these other projects, but he is officially the king of geeks.”

When asked about his part in the third film he stated this:

“I will absolutely be back,” he said, “and my part is going to be bumped up.”

IDW has just posted a press release on their website about the future of Transformer's Generation One related comics:

San Diego, CA (July 24, 2009) - After the huge success of this summer's blockbuster TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN movie, IDW is keeping the excitement going with three new TRANSFORMERS series. Under license from Hasbro, IDW is proud to offer fans The TRANSFORMERS, the first ongoing series in years, written by the critically-acclaimed Mike Costa. Coming in November, TRANSFORMERS #1 starts things off with not one, but two, huge events so CYBERTON-shattering that the lives of the TRANSFORMERS characters will never be the same.

Spinning out of the events of the new ongoing series will be two miniseries. The four-issue TRANSFORMERS: BUMBLEBEE puts BUMBLEBEE between a rock and a hard place with his own friends, while TRANSFORMERS: Last Stand of the Wreckers plots the course of AUTOBOTS in space as they confront a new foe who just might tear the (Dave do these need all caps? CAPS ARE BEST) Springer, Kup, and their cadre of AUTOBOT heroes apart.

"This is the first ongoing TRANSFORMERS series for IDW, and there's a good reason to do it now. These stories are too big and too important to contain in even several volumes of miniseries. And it all starts with events in TRANSFORMERS #1," said IDW's TRANSFORMERS editor, Andy Schmidt. "This is the best jumping on point for new comics or TRANSFORMERS fans in years. We're embarking on a whole new journey and an exciting new direction."

The TRANSFORMERS will debut in November, helmed by Mike Costa
with art and covers by returning, fan-favorite, artistic dynamo Don Figueroa. This series is the basis for the two new miniseries, creating an unstoppable combination of new TRANSFORMERS comics.

Debuting in December, writer Zander Cannon and artist Chee masterfully create Bumblebee's story in this four-issue miniseries. TRANSFORMERS: BUMBLEBEE spins out of the ongoing series and is a must-read for any fan. TRANSFORMERS: Last Stand of the Wreckers is set in space concurrent with the ongoing series. Shedding light on the conflicts outside of Earth, long-time TRANSFORMERS creator Nick Roche masterfully foreshadows upcoming events in the ongoing series, while taking fans on a wild ride.



The TRANSFORMERS will be available in stores in November.

TRANSFORMERS: BUMBLEBEE will be available in stores in December.

TRANSFORMERS: Last Stand of the Wreckers will be available in stores in January.

IGN has posted an interview with Transformers comic legend Simon Furman concerning the previously reported comic series Transformers Nefarious. We've posted a portion of the interview for you here:


IGN Comics: How did this project come about?

Simon Furman: It had its origins in the series I was doing at the moment for IDW called Tales of the Fallen. One of the issues of that features the character called Ravage from the movie. While we were pulling that story together, we threw in some elements there of some kind of mysterious conspiracy that's maybe human-led or maybe some other Transformer-based organization. They're kind of pitting themselves against the Transformers. So we laid some very loose seeds in there. And thereafter we started talking about expanding that into its own series.

IGN Comics: Is this being planned as a mini-series or an ongoing?

Furman: It's a mini-series. We're looking at either five or six issues. But we have yet to pace it out into its respective parts. But it'll be a self-contained series.

Di Bonavetura said,"Everybody has to put their own lens on these things. The intention was certainly not how some people perceived it... I'll put it that way."

He also said some things about the planetformer Unicron being in the third installment of the franchise and the introduction of minicons. You'll have to read the interview to see what he said though. You can see it by clicking here.

Long time Transformers comic scribe Simon Furman has updated his blog with an update regarding All Hail Megatron #13, which is due out in store this Wednesday the 22nd of July (Thursday the 23rd for those outside the USA Mainland).

The update can be considered spoiler free for those who know Furman's tendency to spill the beans in his summaries, but he does reveal the two main characters in his story (so beware if you are unaware of who they are.)

Can’t tell you too much about the story itself, but rest assured that as well as providing something of a retrospective on the intertwined life and times of Prime and Ironhide it sets the scene for more momentous twists and turns to come.

To check out Furmans full update, please click here.

And for those attending the San Diego Comic Con this weekend, don't forget to hunt Furman down for an autograph.

Boy Drinks Gasoline For 5 Years To Mimic Transformers

Transformers News: Boy Drinks Gasoline For 5 Years To Mimic Transformers

Now this is messed up.

According to an article on ShanghaiDaily.com a 14-year old boy drank gasoline... for FIVE YEARS to mimic his childhood hero's: The Transformers. After watching an old episode of The Transformers where the robots consume fuel for sustenance the boy quickly developed gasoline dependency.

A 14-YEAR-OLD boy drank gasoline for five years to obtain "energy" - just as his idols "Bumble Bee" or "Optimus Prime" do in "Transformers," the Sichuan-based West China Metropolis Daily reported yesterday.

After the boy, in Yibin City, southwest Sichuan Province, had watched the animated TV series, he began to drink gasoline to become a "valiant fighter" like "Optimus Prime," his father told the newspaper.

"He began to drink gasoline five years ago, when we found he liked smelling lighter fuel," he said.

The boy's mother owned a grocery stall, selling small goods such as lighters.

In 2004, she often found lighters missing two or three days after she'd bought them. She later found that her son had been stealing them.

The parents talked to their son and asked him not to do it again. "But afterwards we found our motorcycle's gasoline was always disappearing, and one day when we found the boy had drunk a half bottle of gasoline stolen from the motorcycle, we were too shocked to say anything," the father said.

IQ dropped

They locked the motorcycle away after that but the boy began to steal gasoline from neighbors and was drinking more and more - two or three bottles at a time.

"Since my son started to drink gas, his IQ has dropped sharply and now he can't figure out simple addition and subtraction," the father said.

"Before that, he was a very smart boy, and he could even repair the television. But now he does not know the answer of 7 plus 17."

The worried parents finally took their son to hospital where they were told the boy had a mental disorder and a strong "gasoline dependence."

"The gasoline contains a lot of lead, which can do harm to people's brains. To make thing even worse, the boy is in the physical development stage, and the lead has caused serious damage to his body," Peng Houquan, a doctor from a hospital in Yibin, said.

"Transformers" is now a Hollywood blockbuster movie franchise and the second live-action film is currently breaking box office records in China.

"Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" has gained 400 million yuan (US$58.4 million) in the country, breaking the record set by "Titanic" 10 years ago.

Honestly.. I know I don't have to say this but I will. Please please please always watch your children carefully. It is up to us as adults to teach our children right from wrong and in a case like this, fantasy from reality.

Our thoughts and wishes go out to this family in what is no doubt a very difficult time for them.
