Transformers: Regeneration One #83 Creator Commentary with Simon Furman

The official Transformers facebook page has shared this week's creator commentary for IDW's Transformers Regeneration One #83. Hall of Fame writer Simon Furman gives some insight into the first five pages. Mirrored below for those without facebook access.


Re: Transformers: Regeneration One #83 Preview
PAGE 1: Spike Witwicky marks his return, now as Circuit Smasher! What inspired this radical new take on an old favorite character?

SIMON FURMAN: Having Spike back served a twofold purpose. On the one hand, the current status of/fate of Fortress Maximus was on my RG1 “to do” list. It was something else left kind of dangling at the end of #80. I did and do like the basic concept of a character who, to save their life, has to surrender a part of their humanity, and Spike (already being a Headmaster) was partway on that course already. Once I knew the fate of Earth and roughly the state of play there, using him just fitted. It’s that “everything old is new again” tag that I keep applying to RG1. Take the familiar and twist it, reinvent it. I want to keep surprising people with this book, and if doing that also ties a few plot points together, all the better.

Re: Transformers: Regeneration One #83 Preview
PAGE 2: Rack ’N’ Ruin are taken out by Spike, as he displays his power. Clearly what Megatron did to Earth has had a profound affect on him and how he now views all Transformers.

SIMON FURMAN: Yes, and just how much is going to become evident when we hit our third story arc. Spike’s a complex character. He’s human, and blames the Autobots for almost all the bad things that have happened to planet Earth in the intervening 21 years (between #80 and #81). But he was, for a while, half Nebulan/Cybertronian too. He’s literally been inside the heads of the Transformers. But his separation from Fort Max (as well as almost killing him) has left him full of misdirected anger, anger that will spill out in #91-95 in terrifying ways, blurring his place among the “good guys” of RG1. But those kind of characters have always been my favourite. You never know which way or how far they’re going to go, and subsequently if there’s any way back for them once they’ve stepped over that line.

Re: Transformers: Regeneration One #83 Preview
PAGE 3: Topspin and Spike talk about where Spike was when he was last seen in Marvel US issues. Did you always know this was where Spike was going to be when you last wrote him?

SIMON FURMAN: Honestly, no. I think it’s the gulf of time and the fact that we’re heading for an honest-to-gosh conclusion that allowed me to go so dark, both with the state of play on Earth and just how off the deep end Spike is going to go. But some of the seeds of Spike’s state of mind were sown back in #79. To use a kind of drug analogy, Spike was trying to kick the Fort Max habit and get back to his own life. But in many ways he was now Fort Max, so that kind of enforced distance was bound to have some fallout, a kind of enhanced separation anxiety. It’s like the thing you need most, you’re denying yourself, and it’s bound to splinter your psyche. So, even though Fort Max is gone (rather than just shelved), the effect is going to be the same. But even more pronounced. Even once Spike understands what is missing, what he needs, it’s impossible to get.

Re: Transformers: Regeneration One #83 Preview
PAGE 4: Spike and the Wreckers stand down after their initial confrontation. Considering both of their desperate situations, you’d think it couldn’t get any worse of them. Right?

SIMON FURMAN: Oh, it’s going to get a lot worse. For both. Even when the dust settles on #85 and that storyline, the Earth angle is far from finished. And the Wreckers are going to be reeling for a long time.

Re: Transformers: Regeneration One #83 Preview
PAGE 5: Optimus Prime is sharing his seemingly infinite wisdom with Hot Rod. Do you see Prime as someone who, even with all his experiences, still learning new things about the world around him?

SIMON FURMAN: My take on Optimus Prime is that while he’s a Prime, he’s not THE Prime. And that’s what he’s been gradually starting to understand. I always feel that Optimus never really wanted the role, but grew into it. Grew into this amazing, inspirational leader. But it was never natural. He had to walk the shoe leather in before it fitted. And maybe for all his incredible wisdom and courage he’s still just a link in chain from their creator, Primus, to… ???. A chain (mentioned in #65) that got broken when the Matrix was lost/corrupted/destroyed. Is it a coincidence that Hot Rod kind of looks like Primus? I tend not to believe in coincidences.

The Verge has posted some new screenshots and information on the upcoming Transformers: Fall of Cybertron DLC "Dinobot Desctruction Pack". The pack allows players to access Grimlock, Swoop, Slug, and Snarl in multiplayer. This DLC pack will be available on September 11th. The full article can be found by clicking here.

We had looked into putting the Dinobots in multiplayer very early on when we knew they would be in the main game," he said. "We had to make the call halfway through the project that they would not be in the competitive multiplayer.

"They have a different animation system, their rigs are different, and we didn't know how we would fit them into the carefully balanced set of archetypes (cars, trucks, tanks, and planes)," he explained. "They didn't fit any of those classes, and we couldn't make a fifth class and have it be just the Dinobots.

Transformers Generations GDO Scout Class Laserbeak Pictorial Review

Seibertron.com member Jones dropped by the Energon Pub with a pictorial review of Generations GDO Scout Class Laserbeak, a repaint of ROTF Skystalker. Check out the review below..


Hey all,

I've been a lurker around here for a while. Wanted to jump in with a collection of pics of a figure that there isn't much info about right now: Generations 3.0 Scout Class Laserbeak!

Just picked this guy up on eBay from EPToy.com, as he's an Asia exclusive and not available (sadly) in Canada. I'm a big fan of the Generations line, having grown up with the G1 cartoon & movie, as well as all the new stuff like the live movies & the new Prime TV series.

Here's a pic of the packaging from EPToy's website:
Re: Pictorial Review of Generations 3.0 Laserbeak -Scout Class


It's a repaint of the ROTF Skystalker figure, and it really caught my eye with it's G1 inspired colors and the drone alt-mode that is very reminiscent of how Laserbeak appeared while on Cybertron in the very first episode of the G1 series.

For those who need a reminder, here's what I'm talking about:
Re: Pictorial Review of Generations 3.0 Laserbeak -Scout Class


His drone mode is really well done. Everything is nice and clean on the top, and the stuff on the bottom tucks in nicely. And with the G1 colors on this mold, the drone mode looks fantastic.
Re: Pictorial Review of Generations 3.0 Laserbeak -Scout Class

Re: Pictorial Review of Generations 3.0 Laserbeak -Scout Class


In addition, there's a simple way to display him in drone mode that pays homage to the original Laserbeak, and that's to fold his feet out instead of using the front wheel.
Re: Pictorial Review of Generations 3.0 Laserbeak -Scout Class


In my opinion, this looks pretty neat as a way of displaying him in drone mode.

Next, while I personally don't care much for the Macross-esque look, you can also extent the legs more fully to have a hybrid drone/robot mode that is referred to in the instructions as his 'attack mode'.
Re: Pictorial Review of Generations 3.0 Laserbeak -Scout Class


Now the really interesting part! Some purists may shun the fact that Laserbeak has been given a humanoid robot mode, but for me it really works as a reinvention of the character. He's still small, and looks very 'vulture'-like when in robot mode. The beak-like face, talon-like feet and wings on his back give the impression that if Laserbeak did turn in to a robot, this is what he'd look like.
Re: Pictorial Review of Generations 3.0 Laserbeak -Scout Class

Re: Pictorial Review of Generations 3.0 Laserbeak -Scout Class


He of course comes with the same battle-hooks that Skystalker came with, so he has those removable weapons that tuck nicely in to his wings. Quite frankly I'd rather he come with some type of laser weapons to match his name a bit better, but I guess we can pretend he shoots a laser from his eye or something. A minor gripe, but it would have been nice for Laserbeak to have lasers.
Re: Pictorial Review of Generations 3.0 Laserbeak -Scout Class

Re: Pictorial Review of Generations 3.0 Laserbeak -Scout Class

Re: Pictorial Review of Generations 3.0 Laserbeak -Scout Class


No light piping on his head, but it still looks cool with the shiny gold paint app on the top.
Re: Pictorial Review of Generations 3.0 Laserbeak -Scout Class


And finally, here's a shot for size reference next to his good buddy Soundwave. I must admit that I was really disappointed with the DOTM interpretation of Laserbeak (way too chickeny for my taste). Had he been presented in the movie like THIS, it would have been amazing. Think about it: a human-sized assassin/interrogator Transformer that turns in to a small stealth drone? That's cool.
Re: Pictorial Review of Generations 3.0 Laserbeak -Scout Class


Hope you all like these pics! Let me know what you think, I'd love to hear any comments! Cheers!
