How has Dr. Doom turned the confrontation of the Earth's greatest teams upside-down? And how long until Megatron blows the Avengers and the Autobots to smithereens? Writer Stuart Moore (WOLVERINE) and artist Tyler Kirkham (X-MEN: PHOENIX–WARSONG) up the ante as Optimus Prime, Captain America, Bumblebee, Spider-Man and more of your favorites stare down Armageddon!"

Once again Simon Furman has updated his blog. In this latest entry Furman talks about Transformers UK #5 and Transformers Devastation #3. Here is what Furman posted:

"Two Script (W)raps to come this week, this one (being Transformers-UK #5) and Transformers Devastation #3. As it stands, I’m only ’script-(w)rapping the TF stuff (hey, I know my demographic), skipping the likes of Terminator 2 - Infinity, A.T.O.M., TMNT, etc, but if people out there want it, I can include those too. Let me know. Right, Titan’s Transformers (UK) #5. Ironhide. Having scattered my cast far and wide at the end of issue #2, it’s now a matter of starting to bring them together again, and #5 is our first story not set on another world. We open in deep space, as Ironhide (in protoform ‘meteor’ mode) is caught by… ah, but that’d be telling. Suffice to say that I’m just starting here to explore the possible origins of The Allspark. No one, not even the Cybertronians themselves (including Optimus Prime and Megatron), seem to know exactly where it came from and how/why it found its way to Cybertron, which begs the question (to me at least), where did it come from (and whose was it before)? Actually, Ironhide’s solo outing is a story-within-a-story kind of affair (in ten pages!). We flash back to Cybertron, intro-ing some of the movie toy characters, and get a good look at Ironhide (a sort of more gung-ho, military-minded version of his original, classic incarnation) in full on battle action. No word yet on the artist for this one. Possibly Guido Guidi, possibly Lee Sullivan (both names that have been floated recently). But there’s still a chance (editor) Steve (White) will throw me an artistic curveball here. Keep watching this space for updates."

    New Brandon of the FDP has stopped by to let us know they need some more voice actors. Here is his message:

    Hey everyone, it's audition time! We've got a lot of characters to audition for our fan dubs here, but if you don't get one... there's still a lot more to go! We have some for both male and female voices, which isn't always the case when you're dubbing Transformers. We have fan dubs available of Victory, Beast Wars Second, Beast Wars Neo, Robotmasters, Scramble City, Zone... over 40 episodes all told! To check out our work, please visit http://www.tfcog.com.

    Also, we have bit parts, episode parts and regular parts. If you're not looking to committ to a long deal, please don't audition for the Insectrons. Please record all the lines listed for each character. I have provided screen caps for each character and a Japanese voice sample of all of the major characters as a rough guideline.

    Send all auditions to bwill(at)cogeco.ca. Preferably zipped. Save the files in MP3 format if possible. File attributes should be something like 48000Hz, 192kbps, mono -- although I'm far from strict on this. Name the files CharacterName_YourName_Line#.mp3. The deadline is Sunday, July 15. Now, on to auditions.

    AUDITIONS

    Beast Wars Second

    Scrambled Voice
    First, we have a bit part... a scrambled female voice. Needs to sound ominous, with no emotion. Send in clips of gibberish, about 5-10 seconds in length.


    Maximal Drill Sergeant

    The drill sergeant only has a couple of lines in episode 5. Unsurprisingly, he needs to sound strong and military-like. The character is only seen briefly, at a distance and in silhouette, so you won't need to match any mouth flaps.

    "Gutless cowards! This is no drill! Don't help anyone but yourself!"


    Mantis

    Mantis is a semi-regular character and the leader of the Insectron faction in Beast Wars Second. Most of his appearances happen around episodes 6-12 or so. Looking for something strong, tough and maybe even slightly crazy (in an angry sort of way). He is a loner, despite being the leader of the group and would rather live in peace than fight, so getting caught in the middle of the Maximal-Predacon war angers him. His alternate mode should be obvious by his name.

    "I am Mantis of the Insectrons and I look forward to challenging you one day!"
    "The time for talking is over!"
    "Those who threaten our lives are our enemies!"


    Japanese Voice Sample


    Bigmos

    Bigmos is a mosquito. His voice should be deep and a little deliberate. He's always seen with Tonbot, who is pretty much the opposite of him.

    "We can't let them live, Tonbot."
    "Maximals, I believe we had a bit of a miscommunication."


    Japanese Voice Sample

    Tonbot

    Tonbot ('tawn-bot') is loud and obnoxious. Has a high pitched voice. If I was to compare him to a character in the original Beast Wars series, it would be Waspinator. I'm not looking for a Waspy impression, but maybe something equally as obnoxious.

    "Please help me! Please!"
    "Wow, you Maximals are amazing!"
    "We thought we'd finally found peace, then these guys had to come and ruin it for us!"


    Japanese/Engrish Voice Sample


    Scissorboy

    Scissorboy is the teenage/young member of the Insectrons. I'm looking for a young voice, but more of a medium sounding young voice, nothing too high.

    "Are you still working on that stupid thing?"
    "I had this dream about you last night, so I was hoping I'd run into you sometime!"


    Japanese Voice Sample


    Drillnuts

    Drillnuts is the scientist of the Insectrons. He always has gadgets that may or may not be any good, especially a device that detects rage. Looking for something that sounds "smart." I picture him with an English accent, but a Harvard lockjaw or some other similar sounding accent may also be worth a try. He doesn't need an accent, he just needs to sound intelligent. Has a medium voice.

    "Look, what it does is it detects one's level of hostility."
    "I've got bigger fish to fry. A missile I made myself didn't explode! I don't see why..."


    Japanese Voice Sample


    Powerhug

    Powerhug is a goofy character. He's big and not really the brightest, so he should have a deep, slow voice. He likes to roll up into a ball and roll down hills until he loses control. No mouth, so it will be easy to synch the lines.

    "Aaaarrrgghhhh! Help! I'm out of control!"
    "And defy the code? Never. The only way I fight is like a true insect!"


    Japanese Voice Sample

    Beast Wars Neo


    Hydra

    Hydra mostly appears in episode 12 (we're on 11 right now), but appears later on in the series. He likes making bad puns and he thinks he's funnier than he is. He is an old friend of Ramhorn's and is jealous of his success. Magmatron has put him incharge of the fortress planet Porcupine which has the population of 2 -- Hydra and his drone.

    "Lord Magmatron, you'll never believe it, sir. The Maximals have requested landing on Porcupine!"
    "I'll need some help. Send one of your troops in and we'll take their ship out."
    "Haaaaahahahahahaha!"


    Japanese Voice Sample


    Hydra's Drone

    Female voice. Needs to sound plain like a computer but still have an underlying sense of humour. Doesn't have a mouth, so there's not a lot of difficulty in synching lines. I'm relatively sure she's just in the one episode.

    "With these new spaceships being built into Porcupine, it will truly be the most powerful fortress planet that has ever existed."

    Japanese Voice Sample

    That's it for auditions. If you have any questions, please reply to this thread or e-mail me at my address above.

    The Transformers: Megatron Origin #4

    Eric Holmes (w); Alex Milne (a); Milne, Marcelo Matero (c)

    Perhaps there is no end to their war... but this is the beginning. MEGATRON begins his fateful march on the road of conquest, flanked by STARSCREAM and SOUNDWAVE. A final, devastating showdown with SENTINEL PRIME seals the origin of MEGATRON, sees the naming of THE DECEPTICONS and unleashes the opening shots of the war without end! By Eric Holmes and the artist of the TRANSFORMERS MOVIE ADAPTATION, Alex Milne. Marcelo Matero once again provides a variant cover.

    Meet... THE PACK! On post-civil war CYBERTRON, in the strained lull in hostilities between the MAXIMALS and the PREDACONS, they are the team of hard-hitters that does not exist, is not sanctioned officially by any part of the MAXIMAL HIGH COMMAND. They are also MAGMATRON’s last hope and currently en route to Earth to find RAZORBEAST’s time-displaced MAXIMALS. If they fail, nothing can prevent the rise of 'the nemesis' and the end of CYBERTRON!

SWOOP, now under the control of another and out of control. OPTIMUS PRIME has no choice but to gather the troops and order a hunt for the rest of the DINOBOTS! Nick Roche once again provides an all-new cover re-creating a classic scene from the issue!

    After a long hard day of work or play on Wednesdays, I like to go and check out what's new at my local comic shop. Sure there was Movie Adaptation #2 (No TARGET 2006)...but when I scanned the magazines, there was a new Toyfare with Robovision Optimus Prime on the cover (#120 August 2007)!


    So what's in this 'Transformers Issue':

    *First of all, it's dubbed 'The Transformers Collector's Edition"
    *Comparison of Optimus Prime's toy alt modes (G1 to movie)
    *A live action movie article...
    *A review of the new TF game...
    *A smattering of some general movie merchandise that will be available, or is available (think bed sheets, etc.)
    *An article about the Animated movie
    *Discussion of Avengers/Transformers (due out next month)
    *An article about Japanese toys that make us cry, so to speak...
    *A CLASSICS visual price guide
    *Pictures of SDCC exclusives including Alt Rodimus, Titanium Menasor, Star Wars McQuarrie ObiWan and Yoda, and Pimp Daddy Destro(s)...
    *And finally a 'complete' Transformers price guide

    You might ask yourself, why is this news? The answer is because this a great issue for all Transformers toy fans to own, and I wanted to make sure that folks were aware it was out there, and that they should pick it up!
