In this Spotlight on the grizzled old TRANSFORMER, KUP finds himself stranded, facing shutdown, and fighting evil that just might be all in his mind. Alex Milne joins the cause, too, presenting a special variant cover that shows just what KUP is up against in this Spotlight, seen below in today's ADJ. Enjoy!"

    Following the rumours posted earlier this week. TFW2005 have received some information that contradicts what we were told. Here's what they had to say:

    - The Animation studio will not be Gonzo, but Answer and Mook and the cartoon will not be 'Anime' in style.

    -The look of the series will be 'brand new' to Transformers.

    - The only writer previously connected to Transformers that has submitted ideas for the series is one of the story editors on Beast Machines.

    - Character design is being done by talent from the Teen Titans, Legion of Superheroes, Fosters series.

    - The Director worked on Teen Titans and X-Men Evolution

    - Cartoon Network will be partner in the production of the show.

    Please note as yet we have no reason to believe this is any less a rumour than the contradictory information posted earlier this week. Read the full article a here at TFW2005.

    Update: It seems that an image of what the characters from the new Transformers: Heroes cartoon MIGHT look like can be seen here at

    This image was created by aritist Sean "cheeks" Galloway, who is said to be working on the new TV show and has previously worked on DC Comics 'Teen Titans Go!' title.
