Fellow Seibertron.com user SlyTF1 has alerted us to a new article discussing the goings-on at Paramount, and specifically in the writers room for the extended Transformers universe, as IGN caught up with Daredevil's Steven DeKnight on the current situation with Akiva Goldsman's project, and the surprise visit from Steven Spielberg! Read more below, and head here for the full piece.
Taking a page from how a TV show is run, Paramount assembled a big group of experienced writers to help chart out the future of the Transformers film series, under the guidance of Akiva Goldsman, as the studio looks to build more of an expanded Transformers movie universe. I asked DeKnight what the experience was like taking that TV dynamic and using it in film, and he had an enthusiastic reply.
“It's that wonderful thing where features are now taking a page from television and getting people together to really try and plan things out. It was a wonderful experience. Akiva Goldsman was fantastic and Jeff Pinkner, who's co-writing the fifth [Transformers] movie with him was phenomenal. Zak Penn... It was just a room full of brilliant, funny, amazing people. And we spent two and a half weeks in physically the best writers room I've ever seen in my life. Paramount pulled out all the stops. It was phenomenal! We laughed and joked and told stories and plotted out...”
Fellow Seibertronian Powered Convoy, also an active member over at fellow fansite the Allspark, has sent us some high-resolution scans of previously revealed or seen coming items from Takara Tomy's stables and their licensees, courtesy of the Figure King magazine issue #210. You can check out the images mirrored below, featuring Diaclone Diabattle, MP-27 Ironhide, Q Transformers, UW Devastator and more!
Fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath has spotted a couple more pieces of unused concepts by Transformers artist Floro Dery via the usual Etsy store, this time featuring the Quintesson castle and Ariel, an early version of what then became Elita - check them both out mirrored below!

Another episode of the second series accompanying the Q-Transformers toyline from Takara Tomy has been uploaded to the DLE Channel on Youtube, and is embedded below. The title, you ask? Something along the lines of (sorry, Japanese speakers) 'The Road To Our Favorite Characters In Sengoku Basara' - check out the episode to find out what the Capcom game has to do with Optimus Prime, Lockdown and Tracks. Maybe.
Also thanks to fellow Seibertron.com user Cyberpath, we have a cross-update from Takara Tomy designer Shogo Hasui - the man behind Unite Warriors UW-04 Devastator - and his Twitter account, showing the computer generated image of the Titan class combiner used for the Oculus Rift experience at Wonder Festival this coming weekend! Take a look at the intricacies below.

Hello and welcome to the lastest edition of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host ScottyP along with RodimusConvoy13, xRotorstormx, our long lost partner in crime TigerTrack24, and coming to you live from San Diego Comic Con, Seibertron. In this episode we will be discussing all the latest news coming out of San Diego Comic Con from rumors and reveals to new comics that will be headed to a comic shop near you.
San Diego Comic Con, the place where everyone wants to be, is taking place this week (July 9-12) and we've got the latest scoop on all the big surprising and those not so surprising reveals in the Transformers world BUT we decided to throw you a curve ball tonight and start off with a little discussion of non-TF SDCC news that we are each looking forward to.
Up next we'll dive into the world of transformers...
Oh, what do we have here, do my eyes deceive me? Nope, those 90's neon colors are headed our way again in the form of G2 Superion and Menasor and we couldn't be more excited!
We've also been shown this awesome spreadsheet of repeated mold use in the Combiner Wars line, just in case you were curious.
We fall back into some G2 chat when out of the blue, who do we have here? Live from San Diego, its Seibertron! He was able to take some time out of his busy schedule to join us to chat about everything from his first hand experiences to the overall vibe of comic con. You do not want to miss this.
While it may not come as a surprise to some, it looks like we've finally gotten an update that Toys R Us may actually be getting Masterpiece Starscream.
Up next, we discuss our thoughts on the awesome looking game from Activision Transformers: Devastation plus, our very own Seibertron was lucky enough to get a first hand walk through at SDCC.
At this years Botcon, we were lucky enough to get our hands on some G2 figures that never saw the light of day, General Optimus and Sgt. Hound. On top of Nacelle from the club, the twincast deviates a little to discuss what other unreleased figures we would love to see.
With the popularity of the Combiner Wars line so far, what does this mean for the possibility of the other combiners making an appearance?
Combiner Wars Devastator, the set we have all be clamoring to get our hands on is finally popping up in stores. Some of the twincast were lucky enough to have him in hand so you'll have to tune in to hear our thoughts on this new box set.
There were a few things that were surprisingly absent at SDCC this year, most importantly, Titan Wars. The images were (leaked?) at Botcon this year on the Hasbro banner but with no official word, will we ever see these figures come to life? Well, just when we thought all hope was lost, an image of Titan Wars Blaster has appeared...
Also, there was some exciting news to come out of the IDW panel at SDCC. Lets just say we will be seeing new comics galor in the coming year!
Of course, we finish up this episode with an excellent round of bragging rights. What has the Twincast picked up since last time? You'll have to tune in to find out...but here's a hint.
Well, that wraps things up for another episode! We really hope you enjoyed listening.
Don't forget, the show only gets better if you tell us how. Drop us a review on iTunes and be sure to tell us what you love, what you hate, and what you want to hear!
Not on the show to give your take? Probably not, so don't forget to keep the discussion going on the Seibertron.com Energon Pub Forums by simply replying to this post!
Got a question for the Twincast? We take all of them, we just don't take them all seriously! Leave a question in the Ask the Twincast thread and, if it makes the cut, it may get read and answered on the show.
With artist James Raiz back from Toronto's TFcon, we have a better chance to look at the process leading up to the creation of the Villains piece of his Transformers/G.I. Joe combo prints (first one, Heroes, can be found here), with colours by Kieran Oats. Make sure to drop by Raiz's channel and page under Box Office Artist for more, too!
