Displacement and Enigmas
(Spoiler free-ish)



Synopsis
THE ONYX INTERFACE! The AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS face down human forces—and strange battlelines make for strange allies. Who will emerge with the ancient ENIGMA OF COMBINATION… and who will usher in the COMBINER WAR…?

Transformers News: IDW Publishing Transformers #38: Days of Deception Review
PUNS!


Story

On a very different playing field from MTMTE, the 38th issue of The Transformers also brings a storyline more or less to its conclusion, and finishes setting the stage for the Combiner Wars event due to begin next month, alongside revisiting some of the characters and power plays we hadn't seen in a while. And it does it very well.

Transformers News: IDW Publishing Transformers #38: Days of Deception Review
And Spike is still despicable


The most obvious, and personal highlight of the issue, is John Barber's writing of individual characters and interactions, rather than general team/theme work - with Thundercracker, Soundwave, Arcee and Galvatron in particular standing out among the rubble. The humans have some nice moments too, but the more ambiguous players really take the spotlight.

Transformers News: IDW Publishing Transformers #38: Days of Deception Review
oooh ambiguuuuity


Of course, that is not to forget Prowl, the Constructicons and the strange dynamics of Devastator as it currently stands, and as it will stand for the next three or four months. The development on gestalt technology, plotting and writing has been a great thread to follow since pre-Dark Cybertron, and there are very interesting developments in this issue that might affect the wider concept.

Transformers News: IDW Publishing Transformers #38: Days of Deception Review
No hamfistedness here


There were some misgiving about some of the more plot-device heavy moments, but overall, the issue serves really quite well to seed even further plotlines and potential, and we may see some of those potential lapses come back in Barber's continuity-magic at a later stage. That, and Thundercracker is still a wonderful piece of writing work.

Art

What really has to be said for this issue, is that artist Andrew Griffith undoubtedly kills it from an artistic perspective. The poses, settings, expressions (robot, dog and human alike) are spot on and fantastically execute everything at play in the script. Galvatron in particular is stupendously sinister, and the pain and confusion found in some Prowl/Devastator and Thundercraker scenes is actually quite moving.

Transformers News: IDW Publishing Transformers #38: Days of Deception Review
Foof


Josh Perez' colours, on top of that, allow for a wider range of emotional charge that blend fantastically well with the linework and script. The bigger scale moments do not dwarf the smaller, personal scenes; the Soundwave situations in particular which both show nothing of what is actually happening and the pure anger that the true Decepticon must be feeling, are stunning.

Transformers News: IDW Publishing Transformers #38: Days of Deception Review
What elephant in the room?


Tom B. Long is still as font-abulous as he can be, and Devastator's speechbubbles, any title or caption and the impressive amount lettering in the more explosive sequences is carefully controlled. Again, we have encountered the RI cover by Jeffrey Veregge yesterday, though still beautiful; the thumbnail then is the B cover, by Casey Coller and Joana Lafuente helps with a sense of scale and stakes for this and the coming story.


Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

Once again, ScottyP was a good sounding board for some of the points I made in the review, and his thoughts also come through in this piece. Personal highlights, however, are the return to Soundwave's own schemes and plans, which may or may not be working with/alongside/for Galvatron and the Decepticons, and the wonderfully poignant conflict within the Constructicons - and of course, Thundercraker.

Transformers News: IDW Publishing Transformers #38: Days of Deception Review
A Handsome Jet


Hoping that Combiner Wars doesn't slow down the great pace and development in the post Dark Cybertron era of exRID too much, this issue shows just how much change Cybertronians and Earthlings have gone through, all the way since the -ations and All Hail Megatron, and with both positives and negatives considered, it is a lot. And definitely worth the read.

(W)Rung Timing
(Spoiler free-ish)



Synopsis
JOURNEY'S END! Across time, across space, from prewar Messatine to postwar CYBERTRON—it's all been heading towards this—the moment when the fate of the AUTOBOTS and the DECEPTICONS is sealed. At the heart of it all: three killers, two outcomes... and one terrible, terrible choice.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #38 Review
Here's an unrelated image


Story

What we really get in More Than Meets the Eye #38 is three conclusions. The end of the Elegant Chaos arc, under Days of Deception; the end of the Cybertronian trilogy according to James Roberts, started in Chaos Theory (2011); the end of the world as someone knows it. How we get there, though, is a whole other journey.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #38 Review
Yeah, it was


There was a strange feeling running through my head as I was reading the issue, the same sense of unease that I had found in the other parts of Elegant Chaos, as if it was just building and building, without really reaching its climax - and it feels even more the case in #38. Discussing it with others on the staff, we believe we've cracked that mutual feeling: this is really not about the action, or even the story itself.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #38 Review
Good


What Chaos Theory, Shadowplay and Elegant Chaos offer are is a an exquisite series of character developments and spotlights, retreading older paths and forking ways, in the wider frame of time travel and end-of-the-world threats. We get, then, to see the origin of Megatron, but also Whirl and Orion Pax; of Rewind, Chromedome and other relationships formed and lost; of Rung's historic constant, and much more beyond that; of Rodimus' leader skills; of quantum jump technology; of the whole MTMTE series.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #38 Review
Thank you Whirl


If you're looking for a semi-linear, action-based story that revolves around and solves all the questions it poses, you may not want to read this just yet. Go back to 2011, and read the three parts from there up to today. This book deserves more of your time than just one read, and sheds a lot of (fragmented) light on what came before it. Give it time.

Art

The story, the arc, the events, are really about the characters, then - and Alex Milne's character work is probably the most appropriate combination that could've been had. Yes, the backgrounds and settings are as great as always, but it's the body language, the positioning, the interactions, the facial expressions that truly stand out here.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #38 Review
...


Combine that with the fantastic colouring work provided by Joana Lafuente, and the bodies and faces no longer need to speak for themselves, as the hues of colour, saturation and gradients seeping into the scenes offer not only background but also mood settings and indications.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #38 Review
I mean, come on


There is also plenty of space, from the title pages, to the captions, to some of the speeches, for Tom B. Long to flex his fontastic fingerskills, including a number of action-heavier scenes in the latter half of the book. While we've seen the decorative RI cover by Jeffrey Veregge already, the thumbnailed B cover, by Nick Roche and Josh Burcham really makes sense post-reading, too.


Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

I'd like to thank ScottyP for teasing out some of my own thoughts on this issue, as we briefly discussed why it did and didn't work at certain turning points. And I think I've highlighted most of those further above. But, in no particular order, I hope you pick up on the following: Rewind, Brainstorm, Tailgate, Perceptor. Some major, some minor, but all part of the intricate web of personalities that characterise the Lost Light crew.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #38 Review
Oh, and there's jokes too!


There are some very powerful, emotional moments in the overall arc of the issue, and sometimes it can feel as though there are maybe too many, too different and all together. But they have just enough time, and space, to work out, compared to other endings by Roberts' storylines - and then you have that very last page. Good luck.

Our fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 has shared another Transformers Generations Combiner Wars wave 2 figure video review, and we keep to the Stunticons with Breakdowm! Check out the embedded clip below, and their thoughts, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub.

Shakedown, Takedown, you're busted! It's Breakdown, probably one of the best known Stunticons due to its use as various Bot-Con exclusives over the years. The hip joints will take some getting used to, but once mastered pull off an ingenious leg transformation. I expect this mold to be used often in the years to come.

It's no secret that Hasbro planned for Legends/Combiner compatibility, but over the past week we have seen some great alterations to known combinations along with some great fan-made ones. Now Seibertron.com is happy to bring these great lesser known combinations to light!

To start things off, Kah Fei Shang has shown off Thundercracker working as a chest piece for CW Optimus Prime. This would work likewise with the other Legends Seekers (Starscream, Acid Storm and upcoming Skywarp), but what makes Thundercracker special is current turncoat status in the IDW comics.

Also, these Seekers should be compatible with CW Menasor, and might look especially fetching with a Skywarp chest piece!

Next we bring you a multiple Blackjack power-up to Menasor, thanks to Gikpa. While its not quite discernible how the pair of Jack's are situated on the shoulders, they sure give him a beefier look! If you're not interested in that bit of overkill, have a look at the alternate configuration of the chest Jack. It should connect the same way as the standard setting, but is a nice alternative to the "car parked on chest" look. Think about what this could mean for the upcoming Legends Rodimus!

Transformers News: Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Legends Upgrades and Fanmodes Roundup

Legends Huffer, Nemesis Prime, and Optimus Prime can all take a seat on the open chest cavities of CW Optimus and Menasor. It's as simple as positioning the Legends figures hands in a way to hold on to the two handles protruding from either Voyager's chest. How funny would it be to have Voyager Optimus combine with his Legends counterpart? Special thanks to Twitter users @FigureReviewers and @tsukumo_TF for the inspirational pics!

Even earlier Legends figure Skrapnel has found a way to clasp on the to Optimus/Menasor chest. Twitter user @frenzy_altron shared with his followers that he has the same method as Huffer and Nemesis Prime to hold sturdily aboard!

Hasbro's next stab at a Legends Insecticon, Bombshell pulls double duty as a Targetmaster and a chest piece. His gun mode is pretty self explanatory, and his hood ornament mode holds on like all his predecessors.

Saving the best for last, Seibertron's own Cobotron has come up with a great way to incorporate Legends Powerglide as a chest piece! Holding on to Primes chest pegs for dear life much like the others, he makes another nice addition to the hood ornament brigade!

In closing, you may have not been aware of the multitude of possibilities with these Combiner Wars figures and their Legends counterparts. A large number of mold sharing has made the options nearly endless!

If you have come up with something new, please share it! There's always new things to learn and things to discuss in our forum, The Energon Pub. Stop by and pull up a seat!
