Like many of us IDW's Chris Ryall could not make it to BotCon 2007. However, he is still answering fan question in the IDW Forums. Here is what he has revealed so far:

Transformers Revelation will take place on Earth.

Characters are planned to die in Devastation.

Kup will be back.

Frenzy and Rumble will make it into the main books.

We with see either Cyclonus or Scourge, maybe both.

In the Optimus Prime Spotlight we will learn more about the Dead Universe.

There is one more Spotlight currently planned and it will focus on a character debuting in the Transformers/Avengers crossover.

No word on when IDW will reprint Titans comics in the United States.

Target will offer an exclusive version of the Transformers Movie DVD in November that will come with an all-new 22-page Prequel comic written by Chris Ryall, with art by Don and Andrew Wildman. It features Starscream and some other Decepticons, and even a character that didn't make it into the movie itself, Wreckage.

Also you can view new a never before seen image of Nick Roche's Beast Wars Guidebook images.

IDW's Chris Ryall confirmed yesterday over at the IDW boards that there was a slight mixup between Diamond and themselves as far as, the release of the Transformers Spotlight: Galvatron that many fans were looking forward to yesterday.

Chris Ryall- "I just got off the phone with Diamond. Unfortunately, GALVATRON is a July book, and for whatever reason, according to them, trying to get a book out in the month before it's solicited threw them off and they held the book over to next week. Sorry--next week for sure, long with the first issue of the New Avengers/Transformers crossover. Feel free to spread this around to any other site that is discussing the book, too."


This was in response to people another post:

Chris Ryall- "In all fairness to Diamond, while we wanted it to come out today, as they explained it to me, their system isn't set up to handle books that move forward in the schedule like this. So it was more of an automated thing, not any sort of hissy fit or petulant move on their part. I'm sure they'd be happy to have another TF book out before the movie, too, it's just that the automated system keeps July books until July and isn't set up to ship them early. Now we know."


And finally yet another response:

Chris Ryall- "Here is our process
1. Our printer sends us shipping lists telling us when books will arrive in the states, when they get to Diamond, when they will be in stores.
2. We confirm these dates with Diamond.
3. We then list these releases on our site.
Now, if someone in a different time zone gets to a shop before we on the West Coast can physically confirm the books are in local shops, and they notice the missing book and contact me, and I look into it and find out that this one didnt arrive like it should've."


These quotes were taken from the IDW forums thanks to clrobe (First Post and it's news!). He posted this in our comics forum in response to a conversation many of us were having about where the heck Galvatron was at!

Thanks clrobe.

Howdy folks! Just read through the Botcon comic, which continues the timelines saga that is being presented in the club magazine bi-monthly.

Written by Forrest Lee

Shown in the picture is the Alex Milne cover and the Target Exclusive Convention Pack

It reads a little out of place. Last club mag, we had the Autobots getting ready to go toe to toe with Devastator. For those that read the five page preview, you know that they have returned from it, and Rodimus (Hot Rod) is gravely injured.

S P O I L E R S...S Y N O P S I S...

____________________________________________________________

Here's some other information which would be considered spoiling:

Characters:

Bots: Prime, Bumblebee, Mirage, Rodimus, Magnus, Grimlock, Snarl, Swoop, Elita One, Springer, Huffer, Strongarm

Cons: Megatron, Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker, Ramjet, Thrust, Dirge, Dreadwind, Weirdwolf, Soundwave, Ravage

Other: Bugbite

After a Devastator induced devastation of the Earth bound bots, Prime needs more help and Magnus, Springer, Elita One, Huffer, Swoop, Snarl and Strongarm show up to give it to him.

Meanwhile, Bugbite plots revenge against all Transformers, as he implants 'cerebro shell' based control devices in the seekers, and Starscream, and attempts a coup of Megatron, and all the Cons. His goal is the destruction of all Transformers, because he is from another time and place, where he is now the lone survivor.

Not for long though, as Megatron pounds him. The Autobots rescue Mirage (who used his invisibility to spy on the Cons, but then is captured and brought to Megatron by Bugbite and his forces).

The Autobots get out intact and wholly unharmed (except Mirage and Rodimus), but Decepticon casualties are really high, and the Autobots did nothing to them really, but free Mirage and jam and destroy the cerebro technology.

_____________________________________________________________

It's a good read, and uses some characters that have been gone for too long. Things like 'master partners are brought up as very appropriate plot points, and why there is no longer binary bonded partners to Weirdwolf, and Dreadwind.

Elita One is portrayed as a very capable warrior and spy, and there is nary an interaction between her and Optimus, for good or ill...

Protoform-S has stopped by our forums to let us know Cybertron Philippines has posted two new interviews. One with Guido Guidi and other with Josh Burcham. Here is what Protoform-S posted:


"Cybertron Philippines is proud to present its recent interviews with Transformers artists Guido Guidi and Josh Burcham!

Here are some snippets:

Guido Guidi Interview

[CYBPH] Tell us a little about yourself.

[GG] I’m born and raised in Italy, but actually I’m half from Switzerland… always loved to draw since I was 4… my first drawings were the dinosaurs seen in the science books!

[CYBPH] How did you get into Transformers?

[GG] I was already got hooked with Diaclone and Microman in 1984, then next year the Hasbro’s Transformers were the natural evolution of things, and my interest increased even more (I was 12 years old)
I remember the Dinobots being my favourites. the thing I really loved was the fact the Transformers were sentient robots, a concept I always loved.
This is when I started drawing TF !

Josh Burcham Interview

[CYBPH] Tell us a little about yourself.

[Josh] Heh. Can of worms kinda question here eh? Lets see….me? Well…I’m 21 years old. I live way out here in Central Oregon [beautiful place. Come here if you like snowboarding and the great outdoors :P] Believe it or not I do have a life outside of coloring [although a lot of times it doesn’t feel like it, hehe]. I love my Jesus. Play the drums in my church [not half badly too, if I may say so xD]. I love life and I just try to make the best of it. I love art. I love music. I love creating. Its all good. Hehe. [man, this has turned into quite the “matchmaker.com” kinda question eh? Lol. Moving on >___>]

[CYBPH] How did you get into Transformers?

[Josh] You can blame that on my Mom. She bought me my first Transformer when I was like 2 years old. She got me Targetmaster Kup for Easters [whom I still have and keep on display with my 200 other Transformers xD]. I dunno. I liked ‘em. She kept buying ‘em. Its all been downhill ever since. I went through a spurt where I kinda forgot about Transformers. [Power Rangers was the hawtness around that time.] and I didn’t get back into it until Beast Wars. I got a couple of the toys [Terrorsaur and Snapper] and I didn’t believe they were real transformers! Haha! I thought they were some knock-off another company was making, trying to cash in on the old TF idea. I stumbled over the show one morning [one with obvious G1 reference] and I got to thinking “ya know...maybe this IS real after all!” and I got re-hooked. Been an avid fan ever since!

    Once again Simon Furman has updated his blog. In this latest entry Furman talks about finishing Transformers Devastation #3. Here is what Furman posted:

    "As promised, here’s the second of this week’s script (w)raps, my rambling disgressions on Transformers Devastation #3. As always, these are teasers rather than spoilers, but boy does it get tougher as a series progresses not to give away crucial plot details. I need to remember that as of yet no one’s even seen #1, and dole out my revelations (hm. Isn’t that the next series?) sparingly. So, what’s going on? Well, this is more a fallout kind of issue, as the tumultuous events of the previous two issues settle into a kind of shellshocked aftermath. Not that the issue is short on action and surprises, quite the opposite. Sixshot does his, er, worst to tie up a loose end in the shape of Ratchet (and Verity and Jimmy), within the Machination’s Florida hub, Hunter is faced with a shocking request (courtesy of Sunstreaker) and Hot Rod and Wheeljack face a twin dilemma, the Headmasters and… well, wait and see. It’s what you might call a ‘crushing’ deadline. Once more ‘doc’ Ratchet finds himself at the sharp end of things, but this time it’s a planet-smashing living weapon he’s facing. No contest, I’m afraid. Oh, and a few more sub-plots bubble along: General Deacon and Senator Holt (from Escalation #2) make a reappearance, the Reapers step up into the limelight and the forces of the Dead Universe make their own moves. All this in 22-pages? What I call a value-for-money issue. It’s out in November! Don’t miss it."
