The business section of UK based The Independent News, reports that Entertainment Rights, who own the distrubution rights for broadcasting and DVD's released for Transformers Armada, Energon, Cybertron and Animated in the UK territory and most of the mainland countries of Europe, will be cutting jobs.
According to the article the company will cut one third of its work force in an attempt stay ahead of the losses it has recently endured, partly due to the collapse of Woolworths, one of the largest customers of its UK entertainment business.
Following the interview with Transformers Animated guru Marty Isenberg that we reported here, Derrick Wyatt has been very active fielding comments he's been receiving on his personal blog A Delightful Tedium.
In response to one question regarding Transformers Animated Season 3, he gives us this little bit of info:
...we have more guest actors, and one former guest is practically a regular this season.
What could this mean? The return of Wreck-Gar? More Arcee? It's anyone's guess.
Check out the comments and Derrick's responses here.
Thanks to TFW 2005 member Autobreadticon, we get our first public look at medical officer and surgeon, Red Alert, from the new Transformers Animated Comic that is included with the Jetfire and Jetstorm two-pack of toys.
The toy two-pack has seen release in parts of the world, and teh accompanying comic features many characters that should be a part of the Season 3 cartoon as well.
TFCC members have also had the privilege of seeing Red Alert, and the other members of her team in the newest issue of the club magazine which focuses on the next season of Transformers Animated characters, and the creators of the series.
You can view the full comic page image here, and the cropped image below.
