Now this could be nothing, but Guido Guidi has updated his DeviantArt account with two pieces of art. Both are 80's comic style.
The first is a coloured sketch of G1 Megatron described as a test to try and emulate the 80's Marvel Transformers comic style.

The other is an image from All Hail Megatron coloured in the 80's style.

Now, this might be absolutely nothing, since Guido Guidi also does a lot of fan art, but then again it might have something to do with the petitioned Transformers #81.

Clarification on the Identity of the Mercedes E550

Site admin of Michael Bay's Shoot for the Edit forums, nelson, is at it again. Just a couple of days ago he stated the red Ferrari 458 would not be called Mirage in the movie, but would bare the name of a famous Italian and speak with an Italian accent. Now he's decided to give us a little clarification on the identity of the blue Mercedes E550.

For some time now, I've implied through some of my post that Wheelie's sidekick was the Mercedes E550 (the E550 is a whole different character).

It's not.

My bad, my apologies.

Brains is Wheelie's buddy. And what's Brain's alt-mode you ask? You'll have to wait and see.


Now many of you will think he's stating the obvious because we already know the identity of the blue Mercedes E550 to be Wheeljack. Well maybe not. When other Shoot for the Edit members brought up Wheeljack he had this to say:

Has Bay confirmed it's Wheeljack?


Here's your problem: you keep assuming the packaging and novels are the end all, be all. People assume they dictate Bay what storyline to follow, what to name characters, etc.

Until anything is officially confirm here or by Bay in the press, all bets are off.


There's no debate. His name has been chosen for quite some time now.

Speculation? Yes.

Your fellow Seibertronian DavidT has found an interesting bit of information over on Michael Bay's Shoot for Edit forums. As he often does the site's adim nelson has dropped a cryptic clue regarding Transformers DOTM. It seems the red Ferrari revealed to be Mirage through Hasbro's official toy images and referenced as such in the comics may not be Mirage after all. nelson had this say over at Shoot for the Edit:

As you can see in his posts quoted above nelson states the red Ferrari will speak with an Italian accent and bare the name of a famous Italian. Truth or misinformation campaign? If accurate what could his new "famous Italian" name be? Speculate away here!

Starscreamsfan of TFW2005 made an interesting Transformers Prime related discovery while browsing the pages of Facebook, an image of James Horan (Transformers Prime's Wheeljack), Tony Todd (ROTF's The Fallen), and Roberto Orci (Transformers Prime's executive producer) with the following caption:

Tony Todd, Bob Orci, and me at a party in Hollywood 5/24 to celebrate the Daytime Emmy nominations for the animated series, TRANSFORMERS PRIME. I'm recurring as the voice of "Wheeljack", Tony is the voice of "Dreadwing", and Bob is exec. producing, along with partner Alex Kurtzman. This is the team that also gave us the newest TREK movie, and is currently working on the second!


If accurate this would confirm Wheeljack to be recurring character in future episodes, and give us a new character to look forward to in Darkwing.

Seibertron.com member It Is Him has noticed something very interesting and somewhat exciting in the BotCon promo video we reported earlier.
The following is a screen-shot he took of the video, in it we can see someone digitally painting a robot in the War for Cybertron aesthetic.

Could this be our first look at WFC2 Sunstreaker? And will it get a toy? Only time will tell.

Cybergundam Blog has shared with us a magazine scan showing two upcoming releases for the Revoltech line by Kaiyodo. While the article itself seems to be more about a Revoltech Ironman 2 Warmachine, we do get to see the back and accessories of another Revoltech figure- one resembling the Dark of the Moon design of Movieverse Optimus Prime.
We have mirrored the image for your viewing pleasure.

For those that do not know, Revoltech is a line of action figures by Japanese toy company Kaiyodo based around the "Revolver joint system" which allows for a wide range of movement. Revoltech as a line has many different sub-lines based on different properties, Alien, Toy Story, Macross, and Transformers.
The Revoltech Transformers are non-transformable but highly pose-able and detailed figures and are usually based on the Pat Lee designs from the Dreamwave comics.
This is the second not-G1 Optimus Prime figure planed for the Revoltech Transformers line, the other being based of the Transformers Energon design and as to date still unreleased.

You can click here to see the seibertron.com galleries of previous Transformers Revoltech figures.

This one kinda slipped under the radar when got the scans of DOTM Deluxe Laserbeak's instructions, but it appears we could be getting a DOTM Deluxe Buzzsaw repaint/remold. Laserbeak's instructions reveal an alternate head, and now that DOTM Deluxe wave three is starting to turn up at retail fans are taking notice. Keep in mind we are only guessing this repaint will be called Buzzsaw, but it would seem to be an obvious choice since G1 Laserbeak and Buzzsaw shared the same mold.

TFW2005 member Neo-Bombshell reports having been invited to a DOTM promotional event in Peru where 30 minutes of DOTM footage was shown. While he wasn't lucky enough to see the whole film like Capone from Ain't it Cool News his description of what was shown does reveal a few details that Capone's review did not. Obligatory spoiler warning. To view his original post click here.

  • He reiterates the dark tone of the Chicago battle, human skulls litter the destruction
  • Sam and Carly meet at a White House award ceremony where Sam is receiving a metal from President Obama
  • Optimus Prime takes down one of the ships attacking Chicago, the Wreckers tear the pilot apart limb by limb
  • funny scene where Malkovich's character has an employee's coffee mug destroyed because it doesn't match the carpet
  • another funny scene where Sam's co-worker played by Ken Jeong pulls him into the bathroom to show him some sort of alien evidence that requires pulling his pants down, Malkovich walks in on the scene
  • Sam uses his grappling gauntlet as a weapon to harpoon one of Starscream's eyes, then inserts a bomb into the other
  • Sideswipe is seen using guns similar to his Sidearm Sideswipe figure
  • 3-D scenes looked great
  • Ark is seen leaving Cyberton in the midst of a Decepticon attack, the cockpit moves to the rear of ship to become a battle station where Autobots return fire
