IDW Publishing has once again updated their Art du jour page with some nice Transformers art!

This time it is a sketch cover by Claus Severinksi for the Transformers: Escalation comic! He made a nice cover of Optimus Prime on the battlefield.

The update also contained a short summary of this issue:

"It's gonna be big news when TRANSFORMERS: ESCALATION #4 hits shelves in February. PRIME, MEGATRON, NIGHTBEAT, HARDHEAD, HOT ROD and the rest of the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS clash amidst two opposing armies ready to battle- all while the world watches their every move. Don't forget about Verity and Jimmy, who find themselves in the lion's den again!"

Views: 37,040 user Lizzie B. has posted some interesting Transformers Movie pics of what appears to be a prop of Optimus Prime's head and shoulder used for reference during filming. This pic gives us a good idea at what Prime might look like plus his scale on the film.

Keep in mind this a set prop that is being used for reference and probably be added with CGI later during post-production.

To see more set pics plus a few images of Ratchet, Ironhide and Barricade's alt mode, plus what appears to be Megatron's finger head over to Lizzie B.'s Transformers photos

Over at, a user named "TransformersMonopoly" says he is working on a Transformers Monopoly game.

According to him, USAopoly is working by a license from Hasbro on this game. USAopoly wants to make a Monopoly game featuring 105 Transformers characters.

If you would be interested in helping them, you could contact TransformersMonopoly" in this thread. Doing that you might have a chance to have a mention in the rules or a free game.

Could this be a new product because of the new Transformers Movie?

Good evening my fellow Seibertronians,

I received an exciting message from our friend Stan Bush, who many of you might remember as the original performer of the infamous "The Touch" from the original animated Transformers Movie (1986). Here's what Stan wrote to the staff of earlier today ...

Stan Bush wrote:
Hi Ryan,

I wanted to let the legions of Transfans know that my Producer and I are in the studio mixing a new track for a certain upcoming live-action movie directed by Michael Bay ... I think you know the one!

It's a BIG song, with 70+ tracks at this point!

We hope to submit this track in the next couple weeks.

Also, you can give your readers the link to my new website/MySpace page:

All The Best,
Stan Bush

I think it would be really great if we could rally behind Stan Bush to support him in his efforts to make another kick ass song for the upcoming Transformers Movie. Thanks for contacting us, Stan. I think I speak for many fans when I say I can't wait to see what you've got in store for us. I'm sure it will be great!

If you missed's "remastering" of Stan Bush's "The Touch" music video, make sure you check it out here.
