Q: Of everything you’ve done, and everything you could do, why comic books?
A: Well, I’ve been almost five years going back and forth between the coasts. I’d like to live here more full-time. But it’s really hard to run a show from 3,000 miles away and, for the time being anyway, it seems like it’s going to be a hard time to get the networks to let me run an animated series out of Portland. I do still have a development deal with Hasbro. I have another “Transformers” series coming; that’s in full-blown production right now. I have a documentary I executive-produced that’s coming out this year, as well as other TV and movie projects, but I’ve been looking for something I can do from here. With comic books, you don’t have to be on a studio lot. It’s a lot of working with freelancers who can be anywhere in the country. It’s a business that’s very used to happening not in person. So, it’s a good business to start from my home in Cape Elizabeth.
“So what did the Quintessons promise you?” asked Optimus.
Megatro nshrugged. “The Decepticon Matrix of Leadership.”
“And you believed them?”
“Wha tdid they tell you?” snarled Megatron.
“That if I couldn’t convince you of peace, they could control your mind.”
“What? And you believed that?”
And suddenly Optimus realized that he really did. And that the Quintesson shad already been doing that. But not to Megatron.
A way to influence circuitry…. make the subject more malleable… Optimus knew in that instant what he had to do. Something that his whole being rebelled at. Something he never would have contemplated doing until now. He reached into his chest-cavity.
And switched off the Matrix of Leadership.
As the software went dark ,all of his doubts fell away. None of it was left—just him. He had no idea where the All-spark was. No clue as to what Prime really wanted. But he knew for certain that he faced a foe far worse than the Decepticons: an ancient enemy that had once enslaved his race and that had almost enslaved him—and somehow managed to corrupt the Matrix itself…

#Transformers #Rescue Bots fans: Rumor is there is a schedule delay & season 2 was pushed to February... Hang in there, kids, it IS coming!
TV KIDS: What new shows do you have coming up?
DAVIES: We have this great new show, which is kind of the entry point forTransformers for littler boys called Transformers Rescue Bots. Although interestingly, when we reimagined Transformers for a younger generation, typically big brother doesn’t want to watch what little brother is watching, but because the Transformers brand resonates across so many generations and it’s so relevant and relatable, we’re actually finding that while we conceived Rescue Bots principally for 4- to 5-year-olds, the older brother, who is 7 or 8 years old, is also watching with little brother.
We just talked about co-viewing and children wanting to watch with their parents, well, now we have this show where little brother wants to watch with older brother and big brother also wants to watch with little brother, which is a phenomenal opportunity because, again, there are not a lot of shows where you have that kind of multigenerational appeal at all levels. In fact, Rescue Botsinspired us for our new chapter of Transformers, because Rescue Bots is a much simpler show to understand, the transformations are much simpler, and it’s a lighter, brighter, more humorous approach. So a lot of what we learned fromRescue Bots we are now applying to our new Transformers series.
It starts with Transformers; we’ve had several very successful seasons ofTransformers Prime. Excitedly, Finn Arnesen, who runs international distribution for us, is introducing our new Transformers series, which is a lot of fun because it really harkens back to the old Transformers: Generation 1 days. It’s a lighter, brighter more comedic show. It’s still full of all the wonderful characters that our fans love, but it’s really a complete reimagination of our Transformers series, which we will be rolling out next year.
