The official Transformers facebook page has posted the Creator Commentary for this week's comic release, Transformers: Regeneration One #88. Hall of Fame writer Simon Furman gives us his thoughts on the first five pages, which we've mirrored below for those without facebook access.

Transformers Regeneration One #88 Creator Commentary with Simon Furman
PAGE 1: What is it about the character of Scorponok that draws you to him?

SIMON FURMAN: When he first appeared, Scorponok was a fairly die-cut Decepticon (somewhat second-tier) tyrant, but the introduction of Lord Zarak, his binary-bonded Headmaster component, gave him much more in the way of layers and a kind of noble gravitas, and he gradually became a character who walked the same fine line between good and evil as Grimlock (always a pull for me as a writer). But, of course, that Scorponok died in #75. And Zarak was the more dominant in that incarnation. Here/now, I was interested to explore the other side of the equation, see what the original Scorponok was like. This time, he’s the dominant personality, but you don’t share a head with someone for all that time without some kind of evolution. So there’s two reasons for going with Scorponok: one, there are parallels with Grimlock, the other main focus of this second story arc, and two, I get to bring the original Scorponok (who I never wrote) back and watch him struggle against who and what he was versus who he is (or thinks he is) now. Lots of great character potential there to explore, which I love!

Transformers Regeneration One #88 Creator Commentary with Simon Furman
PAGE 2: Scorponok comes across the other Decepticons, who may/may not accept him as their leader. How do you approach a scene like this in the writing, getting the tension across from the characters as they decide what to do next?

SIMON FURMAN: The theme underlying the whole “Natural Selection” arc is choice, or rather the enforced withdrawal of choice (and its consequences… which will ripple on well after this arc). And here the Decepticons are presented with just that, a choice: join Scorponok or stay loyal to the absent Soundwave. Scorponok overrides that bit of free will/loyalty pretty brutally, which plays into his more blanket intentions to skew the whole nature of Primus’s creations and push them all in a more Decepticon-oriented direction. But I also wanted to show here that there is loyalty and shades of grey even among Decepticons. They’re not all of one mind. Not all stamped out of the same world-conquering mold. There are factions and differing agendas and varying methodologies.

Transformers Regeneration One #88 Creator Commentary with Simon Furman
PAGE 3: While choosing the Cybertron cast, did you have to do a lot of trading with the Earth bound characters or was the process very straightforward?

SIMON FURMAN: Right at the start of RG1 I kind of assigned a non-official sub-group affiliation to the various Decepticons, some of which was predicated by where they were and who they were with when the original series ended with issue #80. So most of those fighting alongside Bludgeon on Klo at the end stayed with Bludgeon. Others I assigned to Soundwave’s neo-Decepticons. The rest I left a little more independent or undecided, like Dreadwind and Darkwing, so in reserve for more general/later use. The Earthbound Decepticons tended to be the older/original characters, whereas those still active on Cybertron the newer ones (in terms of toy release). I also had a list of those Decepticons who demonstrably died in #75 in the battle with Unicron (like Quake, Runabout and Apeface), and I was careful for those characters to stay dead.

Transformers Regeneration One #88 Creator Commentary with Simon Furman
PAGE 4: Soundwave meets with Bludgeon and they discuss his plans. Didn’t Soundwave die back issue 86 while trying to access Thunderwing’s remains? What happened to him?

SIMON FURMAN: Ah no, the destruction of the Hall of Silence was designed to mask Soundwave’s exit (via teleporter) with the remains of Thunderwing. Both were just assumed vaporized by the explosion. If you read those Soundwave scenes again, you’ll see he’s waiting for/relying on the more inexperienced Hot Rod to follow protocol and (in the event of a breach) destroy the entire building (and everything/one in it). This way, there’s no pursuit, no suspicion the Thunderwing remains are still out there.

Transformers Regeneration One #88 Creator Commentary with Simon Furman
PAGE 5: Soundwave continues to see more of Bludgeon’s grand plans for the future. Was Bludgeon your favorite Pretender back from the original run? Do you find him any more difficult to write than the other Pretender characters?

SIMON FURMAN: Bludgeon was always, and still is, one of my favourite characters. He’s a prime example of there not being much in the way of precedent or character detail originally (in either comics or tech specs), so I was able to embellish and create a lot of his character from the ground up. He’s also, let’s face it, just a really cool looking character with a ninja/warrior vibe and a big sword. What’s not to like. Bludgeon comes back into things in a big way in the third arc. What Bludgeon really wants is… well… not what Soundwave necessarily thinks he wants, and it’s going to result in one of the biggest shocks in RG1. Andrew’s cover for #91 just gave me chills! I think he kind of likes Bludgeon too.

One of the highlights from last weekend's Toy Fair was the announcement that Hasbro would be releasing Springer and Blitzwing in this year's Generation line as true triplechangers in Voyager scale. Now it appears that Sandstorm may be joining their ranks. Using Hasbro's Live Customer Chat we've found entries for Springer, Blitzwing, and Sandstorm. The product codes for Springer and Blitzwing do match up based on the official images we received earlier. Highbrow and Banzitron also appear, but their product codes match their previously released Hunt for the Decepticon figures.

Additionally we may have already got our first glimpse of one of his alt modes. If you looked over our images of Metroplex's packaging you may have noticed a few extra Autobots, one of which is a orange VTOL type aircraft. Check out the bottom right corner of the image below. There's also a blue character standing on Metroplex's right shoulder and a green character on his left arm that appear to based on the new Generations Trailcutter mold. Skids and Hoist perhaps?

Remember back in September when Jeffrey Combs, the voice of Transformers Prime's Ratchet, stated, "Unfortunately this iteration of the franchise is coming to an end" regarding Season 3 Beast Hunters? Combs was quick to redact his comment stating there would be a Season 4, however a special Toy Fair edition of kidscreen magazine once again points to Season 3 Beast Hunters being the final chapter in the Transformers Prime saga.

the 13 episodes of Transformers Prime Beast Hunters due to launch this year represent the final chapter of the Transformers Prime story


The article goes on to say a new iteration of the animated series is slated for 2014.

Arnesen says a "new iteration of the animated TV series" is slated for delivery in late 2014



We've mirrored the page scan provided by the Allspark's Vivid Redshift below.

As for Hasbro's established stable of series, which drive the programming on its US joint venture network The Hub, the 13 episodes of Transformers Prime Beast Hunters due to launch this year represent the final chapter of the Transformers Prime story. It has grown to encompass 65 half-hour episodes that continue to roll out around the world. Look for a 75-minute Transformers Prime Beast Hunters movie to hit DVD shelves in Q4.

But that's not the end for Transformers. Arnesen says a "new iteration of the animated TV series" is slated for delivery in late 2014, which looks like it might be shaping up to be the year of the Autobots, given that audiences are already expecting the fourth live-action blockbuster in July.

Given the onslaught of Transformers-related news yesterday from Toy Fair, including a lot of images of upcoming figures, it is understandable if you may have missed a couple items that were announced during Hasbro's presentation: that Masterpiece Soundwave and Acid Storm will see release through Hasbro. This does confirm the earlier reported rumour of these two seeing release.

Very few details are known at this time, including release date or if these will be carried by Toys R Us or another chain. What is known is that Soundwave will come packaged with all 5 of his cassettes!

Stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more information as we receive it.
