Transformers Spotlight: Shockwave
Simon Furman (w); Nick Roche (a); Nick Roche, James Raiz (c)

Presenting a series of one-shots, focusing on some of the best-loved (or loathed) characters from the TRANSFORMERS Universe. The spotlight falls on SHOCKWAVE as the coldly logical DECEPTICON undertakes a plan of devastating scope and ambition, one that will send shockwaves through the entire saga, including the Stormbringer and Escalation series and beyond! Guest-starring... the DINOBOTS! By Simon Furman (The Transformers: Stormbringer) and Nick Roche (Transformers: Generations).

FC • 32 pages • $3.99

The Transformers: Stormbringer #3
Simon Furman (w), Don Figueroa (a & c)

The action explodes on two fronts, as—on CYBERTON—the WRECKERS kick back (hard!) against BLUDGEON’s rogue cult, and—on Nebulos—THUNDERWING shows exactly why, last time around, it took the combined firepower of two armies just to put him on ‘pause.’ As events spiral out of control and the body count rises, MEGATRON prepares to execute his distinctly terminal no-win scenario. Features a special wraparound cover from Figueroa as well as a variant character sketch cover from Fig, too.

FC • 32 pages • $2.99

Transformers: Evolutions: Hearts of Steel #4 (of 4)
Chuck Dixon (w), Guido Guidi (a & c)

Tobias Muldoon must stop the ASTROTRAIN from reaching New York or face a world under the iron rule of the DECEPTICONS. His allies are the AUTOBOTS and the legendary steel-driving man John Henry. Steam-driven, iron-clad action as the ROBOTS IN DISGUISE break cover to do battle at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution. Chuck Dixon and artist Guido Guidi conclude their special look at the Industrial Age reign of the TRANSFORMERS. This issue features two covers from Guidi, one a concept art cover.

The Transformers: Generations #7
Bob Budiansky (w); Don Perlin, Ian Akin 7 Bob Garvey (a); Roche (c)

IDW continues their look back at some of the most beloved Transformers comics from years past. This special monthly series continues to present classic hard-to-find stories from the past two decades of Transformers comics. Nick Roche once again presents a new cover recreation of the original cover art. This issue features the story “Afterdeath!” originally presented in Marvel Comics’ The Transformers #24!

FC • 24 pages • $2.49

The Transformers: Infiltration TPB
Simon Furman (w), E.J. Su (a & c)

Earth: 2006, and the fate of the planet is already sealed, its destiny decided... by the marauding mechanical beings known as DECEPTICONS. In their way stand an embattled crew of seven hardy AUTOBOT warriors, sworn to prevent the impending Armageddon at any cost, and an unlikely trio of human misfits, pulled kicking and screaming into a hitherto hidden world of pain and hurt. The can of worms is open, the genie out of bottle... and nothing will ever be the same again! Before ESCALATION begins next month, see how it all started—the saga of the war-torn robots in disguise, the TRANSFORMERS!

The United States Air Force has published another article on their website, Air Force Link, about the Transformers movie. This new article discusses how actors such as Tyrese Gibson on mannerisms and language. Here is what the article said:

"Airman trains Hollywood actors for 'Transformers' movie

by Airman 1st Class Heather Stanton
49th Fighter Wing Public Affairs

6/12/2006 - HOLLOMAN AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. (AFPN) -- For authentic military aspects, DreamWorks and Paramount Pictures looked no further than Air Force Airmen for the major motion picture production “Transformers.” Actors trained for their individual military parts with an Air Force senior NCO.

Master Sgt. Ray Bolinger, combat controller with the 22nd Special Tactics Squadron at McChord Air Force Base, Wash., trained Tyrese Gibson, one of the lead actors, on the mannerisms and language of a combat controller.

“I am his combat control technical adviser,” he said. “I taught him the authentic dialogue of calling in an air strike.”

As an Air Force combat controller, Sergeant Bolinger provides air and ground interface, is a certified air traffic controller and calls in air strike attacks when in war.

But Sergeant Bolinger taught more than language and dialogue. He also trained actors how to dress in a military uniform in order to look the part.

From the basic battle dress uniform to adding the bullet-proof vest, Kevlar helmet and weaponry, the actors will look like an authentic special operations team in the movie.

Sergeant Bolinger was able to teach the actors Air Force skills because he is an experienced Airman. He has been a combat controller for 20 years, deployed twice to both Iraq and Afghanistan and is now a terminal attack control instructor.

“I did about two years of training right out of basic,” Sergeant Bolinger said.

Combat controller training starts at Lackland AFB, Texas. From there it is on to Keesler AFB, Miss.; Fort Benning, Ga.; Pope AFB, N.C.; and Fairchild AFB, Wash. The Airmen also parachute train at the Yuma Proving Grounds in Arizona and go to dive school with the Navy in Panama City, Fla.

Sergeant Bolinger graduated from Alamogordo High School in 1983. His father was an F-4 Phantom fighter pilot stationed here from 1977 to 1983.

As for the movie, Sergeant Bolinger is excited to see it. He trained with the crew in California for a week and was at Holloman for a week during filming.

“This movie is a good thing for the Air Force,” Sergeant Bolinger said. “I think it will help with recruiting, especially for special operations. Having someone so famous playing the role could bring people in.” "

Robotmasters Fan Version #2 Completed!

New Brandon has stopped by our forums to inform us that Robotmasters Fan Version #2 has been completed! Here is what Brandon had to say:

Yes, folks, this is it. After 11 months and three days, we have finally released the sequel to the original Robotmasters short, which has been a logistical nightmare! We have titled this episode "Robotmasters FV 2." The great thing about this episode is that it bridges many of the series and OAVs we've done in the past. The plot revolves around the Scramble City project and features characters from G1, Victory, Beast Wars, Beast Wars II and even a few characters we've never seen before. There's nowhere else you're gonna see it... and see it all in cel-shaded CGI!

The episode is simple... The Decepticons have found Solitarium - the vital energy source they're looking for - somewhere in the city... which city? New York City! Have you ever seen a monkey at the top of the Empire State Building? Oh wait... But have you ever seen Optimus Primal do it? Of course, all of the characters from the original Robotmasters short are back, but there are new characters, namely Lio Convoy and Reverse Convoy... Enough good guy leaders, eh? Well, maybe the sides will be evened out a little more, if you know what I mean.

You can download it from our website,, or log on to IaconHub and search for "Robotmasters FV #2.avi." The file is approximately 19 MB zipped and is encoded in Windows Media 9. I'll (NewBrandon) try to have it shared as much as possible, and others will have it as well soon enough. Please use that as a secondary option, as I only have so much bandwidth and the website will likely give you a faster download. By the way, the original Robotmasters is still available, for those interested.

Feedback is appreciated! Just reply to this post. I'm sure the following people would love to know what you think...

Lio Convoy ... Jon Bales
Megatron ... Daniel Ross

Optimus Primal ... John Patrick
