Through a press release from IDW Publishing, as well as the SDCC 2016 panel this afternoon IDW and Hasbro: The Revolution is Now, we've gained our first glimpses into the world of Transformers comics after the Revolution crossover event. The Transformers related points from IDW's press release follow shortly below, but please be forewarned that reading this information may (and almost definitely will for some readers) spoil currently running story arcs in both The Transformers and More Than Meets The Eye!
The Revolution ripple effect continues to shake things up as IDW’s Transformers line will see some changes with the introduction of two new ongoing titles: Transformers: Lost Light and the first-ever ongoing Optimus Prime series.
Transformers: Lost Light will continue the fan-favorite adventures told by More Than Meets the Eye writer James Roberts, joined on art by Jack Lawrence (Doctor Who Adventures). Beginning in December, this new series will take Rodimus and the crew of the starship Lost Light into the farthest reaches of the universe, searching for the long-lost Knights of Cybertron.
Next, John Barber, who recently exited his post as IDW’s Hasbro Group Editor, won’t be straying too far from his IDW roots as he tackles Optimus Prime, the first solo series to star the eponymous Autobot. John will be joined by artist Kei Zama (Scarlett Witch). Optimus Prime has declared Earth to be under his protection—and this November, he’ll have to face the consequences.
All those titles will join the currently running Transformers: Till All Are One, Micronauts, and upcoming ROM, which will each continue on, their storylines now converging with this newly established universe as their backdrop.
Other news and notes from this afternoon's panel include:
The Transformers: Revolution crossover comic will feature Thundercracker and Buster saving the White House
Til All Are One: Revolution to primarily crossover with Micronauts
More Than Meets the Eye: Revolution will be co-written by both James Roberts and Nick Roche, reuniting the Last Stand of the Wreckers creative team for the first time since that series. The book will also feature Alex Milne on art.
Speaking of Alex Milne, he will be still be handling art duties on Transformers: Lost Light for 'alternating' story arcs (in other words, fans of the book's look need not fear!)
Transformers: Lost Light is essentially More Than Meets The Eye Season 3 with a name change.
SDCC 2016 had quite a few reveals from different lines including Combiner Wars/Platinum (Liokaiser), Robots in Disguise (Starscream), and Titans Return (Megatron, Bumblebee, Gnaw, and Lione). Below is a list of the different reveals followed by a ton of new images from the show floor. You can get a better look at all the reveals, including something totally new: Toysrus Exclusive Clash of the Transformers Robots in Disguise Decepticon Island Showdown set. This set features reissues of Warrior class Bumblebee and Steeljaw along with new weapons and a stasis cell. The MSRP is 39.99 and this is the same item that was found on a Toysrus computer database recently. Pictures are below along with more pictures to give you a taste of the extensive new gallery we have for you. You can click here or on any image to get to the gallery.
It seems like just yesterday that the first wave of Titan Masters were found at retail. Well, less than a month later, fellow Seibertronian Impulse has found wave 2! She found the whole wave at Toys R Us in Overland Park, KS (a suburb of Kansas City, MO). The wave includes Brawn, Skythread, Apeface and Clobber. So anyone near Kansas City, the hunt is on!
Seibertronians, just in case you didn't get a good enough look at the series in the first trailer, courtesy of Seibertron himself, we have a special peek inside the first episode of the Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars animated cartoon. In addition to a bit of the Machinima panel, we also get our first look at the new female Autobot and Combiner Hunter, Maxima! Check her, and the rest of the trailer out below, and tell us your thoughts in the comments! And, as always, keep your optics and audio sensors tuned to Seibertron.com, the best Transformers news source on the net!
Seibertronians, we have new footage of the Hasbro San Diego Comic Con Rescue Bots display, thanks to Seibertron! Check it out embedded below and tell us your thoughts in the comments! What do you think about this line? Have the new characters introduced recently (Sideswipe, Blurr, etc.) changed your opinion?

Hot on the heels of our other official images, Hasbro have also sent out official images of five of the figures in wave 2 of the Transformers Alt Modes line. Below you can see: Hound, Bluestreak (who is grey and red), Dirge, Sideswipe, and a Silver Optimus Prime. Although there’s no sign of the previously seen Bumblebee, Acid Storm, Cliffjumper, or Smokescreen it's likely that they'll all be coming soon. Check them out and let us know what you think of them in the comments below.
We saw these new Titans Return toys in the flesh earlier already but Hasbro has now released the official images. Most of these are the same 3-d renders found in the back of the boxes. We also know the names now but some do differ from the file names in the Hasbro press kit:
Voyager class Megatron with Doomshot
Legends class Bumblebee
Legends class Gnaw
Titan Master Sawback (the Hasbro file says Lione)
Titan Master Overboard (the Hasbro file says Overkill)
Deluxe class Brainstorm
Below you will find the images for the bot mode and alt mode of Dezarus, Guyhawk, Fellbat, Ironbison, Drillhorn, and Ion Scythe. We still do not know when they will be released. The box seems to be a platinum release so this may be exclusive to one specific retailer (still unnanounced).
During this big week of reveals at SDCC, we do have some fun news for new toys found at retail. Fellow Podcast star Scotty P has found the latest Mincon 4 pack at retail. This 4-pack includes: Dragonus, Bashbreaker, Lancelon, and Lord Doomitron. The individual weapon minicons have only been found in the UK so far and this 4 pack was only available online so this is the first taste of the weapon Minicons for the Americans who wait to find these toys at retail. These were found at a Target in Cary, NC for $16.99 Let us know if ever you come across the individual weapons!
Seibertronians, thanks to Seibertron himself, we have even more pictures of the figures from the Alt Modes series, straight out of SDCC. What's your thought on the figures? Will you be picking any up? Tell us in the comments!
