As we all know BotCon is just not a place to get news about upcoming Transformers toys, but it is also a place where new information about the comics can be found. Both Simon Furman and Don Figueroa participated in the Creating History Panel. They revealed information about upcoming comics and toys! Here are some reports about what was revealed.

Allspark.com and TFormers.com has posted reports on this click on the links above to read the full reports


Summary

Simon Furman

- There are plans to bring Galvatron into the IDW comic universe but nothing specific. Although he mentioned 'Other dimension stuff' that will appear in the Nightbeat spotlight.

- In the Ultra Magnus Spotlight he wants to see him step over the line a little bit. Possibly more like Grimlock.

-There may be "some Headmasters stuff" in the IDW Universe.

- Furman doesn't want to overuse Grimlock. He was in the Shockwave spotlight and won't show up again. for a while.

- he wants to do a Soundwave Spotlight which we might see more Ratbat in.

- He approached Bludgeon in the IDW series the same way he did before. Don made some design changes to make him more scary.

- Something that happens to one of the human characters in the 1st issue of Escalation which will have big repercussions. However he is aware Transformers is all about the robots.

+ Furman's thoughts on Female Transformers: There has to be a rational for any character he uses. Females never worked for him. Why are there female robots? Until he has a reason why, he won't use them.

- Furman "would love to do more with" Marvels new Death's Head.

- Furman has a love for Marvel comics because he grew up reading them. Working in the Marvel universe is just fabulous.

- Furman's influence would be Stan Lee.

- Furman will be working on some movie-related non-comic projects.

More specifics will be coming from Furman on Sunday.

Don Figueroa

- Don spoke of a reworked, 'less floppy' Titanium War Within Optimus Prime. Possibly as part of a two-pack with a reworked Megatron.

- Don also metioned a new non-repaint Titanium G1 Ultra Magnus toy that will transform without having to remove his armor.

- Don does not own the copywrites ti the Transformers art he does, once submitted to the companies they own it. Sometimes he sells originals which he gets to keep. But he cannot print them and sell them.

- Don Influence: Old school type. Jim Lee stuff, doesn't want to try and compete with other TF artists.

As you already know, BotCon is in full swing already. As you know from viewing Seibertron.com's Hasbro Toy Displays Photogallery, Hasbro has already showed off a lot of new soon to be release figures. However, there is a lot of news from BotCon Design Panel about future releases and more. Allspark.com and TFormers.com have posted reports detailing this information, click on the links above or read the full reports.

Summary

- No confirmation but lots or talk of Masterpiece Starscream's possible release in the US. If released, Hasbro's Starsream will have his original deco and be a different toy to Takaras version.

- Hasbro say Masterpeice Starscream was thier idea that they gave to Takara.

- When asked Hasbro said they would like to see a Masterpiece Grimlock, although there are no plans do make one just yet.

- Alternators is not dead, but it on hiatus. There are no plans for Alternator Hot Rod version of Kiss-Players Rodimus.

- Universe is officially finished but there will be some "unexpected" new Titaniums revealed on Saturday. Anything like Universe they do from now on will probably be in a Classics package.

- Some of the new Titanium to be seen on Saturday will be based om comic book designs, maybe Dreamwave.

- The gold and white Galaxy Force Vector Prime deco was used because Gonzo did an animated model in those colours.

- There is a Cosmo G1 UFO design which could be seen in Classics.

- The Beast Wars 10th Aniversary Optimus Primal and Megatron were designed for the Cybertron line. It was planned to have Cybertron Optimus and Megatron hit with something from the beast planet. However they used the moulds for the BW anniversary series instead.

- Classic Megatron's alt-mode was chosen for it's lack of realism. They chose the 'Nerf maverick' blaster look because it looked 'cool' but not like a real gun. They went for non-metallic colours to avoid any legal problems.

- Hasbro have a list of 8 or so extra Classics figures. Should Classics do well, this nay be released but no designs have been drawn up yet.

- Hasbro said that Arcee is probably on the list for Classics.

- Archer would like to do a Classics Predaking figure but there are no plans as yet.

- Hasbro is working with movie design team on the Moive toy line.

- The fan reaction to the leaked movie images didn't surprise surprise Archer. However, he's not sure if Paramount was prepared for the fan reaction. Hasbro wants fans to voice their opinions about the movie.

- Archer has seen about 20 min of footage from the movie. His honest opinion is he really likes what he has seen so far.

- Archer doesn't think that Transformers have a unique look and wants to push the boundaries. He feels 'the character is the character no matter how you draw it as long as its done with integrity.'
