Rage of the Machines

(Spoiler free-ish)

The month of February brings an end to the latest IDW four issue Transformers series, Rage of the Dinobots. For those who have been enjoyed the 'of Cybertron' video games series, is a fan of the Transformers Prime universe, or likes the Dinobots in general, then Rage has been decent series. While not exactly at the same echelon as MTMTE or RID, Rage extrapolates the story left behind in Fall of Cybertron, although the series itself has been reminiscent of Movieverse comics.

Re: Transformers: Prime—Rage of the Dinobots #4 Preview


Enter Shockwave. The Decepticon mastermind has been silent in the past three issues, with his goons doing most of the work to Ultra Magnus and the Dinobots. His characterization is much like the one in FoC, cold, calculated and always having a backup plan up his sleeve.


Re: Transformers: Prime—Rage of the Dinobots #4 Preview


It is a shame that there has yet to be a signal of the Prime cartoon adding more Autobot characters to their roster, as Grimlock, the Dinobots, or even Ultra Magnus would add an even greater dynamic to the show.

Re: Transformers: Prime—Rage of the Dinobots #4 Preview


I think one of the bright points of the entire series is the unmasking of Grimlock. Just a really nice touch by the artists.

Re: Transformers: Prime—Rage of the Dinobots #4 Preview


Overall, Rage of the Dinobots has been a generic series that provides a link between the events of Fall of Cybertron, and to our current cartoon. I think from first glance it is easy to tell whether or not this is your cup of tea - the paperback will be released in May.

Transformers REGENERATION #88

(CUE OMEGA SUPREME VOICE INTONATION)
Time-off taken. Return imminent. Content Limited, Discussion: Classic Transformers Storytelling.

As worn out as the first arc of REGENERATION made me in trying to review, analyze, and decode; I found Issue #88 a pleasant, fun story (and it’s lead issue 87) to return to.


Back on Board - Review of TRANSFORMERS REGENERATION #88

As I dig into Grimlock making a cliché ‘deal with the devil’ to receive a new body and get his fellow Dinobots restored to full health as well, I can’t help but think about all the previous versions of Grimlock there are in the fiction, and what kind of a metamorphosis he underwent throughout Simon Furman’s work with him. Back on topic- Grimlock’s deal.

This deal my friends is what steers the course for Scorponok’s adventure to Cybertron. Like the classic Transformers tales of nearly 30 years ago, whether it be in comic or cartoon form, this issue oozes magnificent world domination scheming reminiscent of cartoon Megatron, and one trick devices that look to turn the tide for one side or another along the lines of ‘THE HATE PLAGUE’, ‘THE ULTIMATE DOOM’ or ‘MEGATRON’s MASTER PLAN’.

The best thing is, for me, that was part of the excellence of Transformers from my youth, the unbelievable plans, the crazy inventions and devices that just happen to come into being with each new story or episode. The gullible-ness (innocence?) of many of the characters to be misled.

This issue takes me back as fan-favorite Scorponok sans his former headmaster partner Zarak, looks to take back Cybertron for the Decepticons. He plans to do this by making all the inhabitants into Decepticons using a gene key that will unlock the ‘warrior gene’ in all the Autobots, basically taking away their inhibitions, and morals -- for all purposes making them Decepticons as well. The device is first used on a small scale so that Scorponok and his partners can set up the large planet-sized key that will do the work a lot more quickly.

Grimlock, meanwhile, is back on Cybertron as well, aiding Scorponok as little as possible, but not trying to put a stop to his efforts either. Grimlock’s mind is trapped on his fellow Dinobots, and the whole Nucleon experience that he put them through.

And there are plenty of side plots to help keep all the characters moving somehow: like Hot Rod’s search for the Primus chamber; Optimus cleanup on Earth; Starscream, Shockwave, and Galvatron re-united; and Soundwave’s scheme with Bludgeon, all of which could be linked to Scorponok’s current bid for dominance of Cybertron, and possibly... the universe!

It’s nice to feel this way again. I mourn the loss of Springer before he really even got started in this NEW (old) series, but find myself now that we are past that whole big, huge Optimus versus Megatron event, able to enjoy REGEN again.

Pick it up and enjoy the fun!

Easily 4.5 nostalgic stars out of 5!

Purple Reign

(Spoiler free, just ask Starscream)


With 2013 signalling the rebirth of the Spotlight issues, it is fair to say that IDW's character driven one-shots are phenomenal so far. The events that occur in past and current Ongoing series broaden the possibilities for the Spotlight series, and with a myriad of talented Transformers gurus at IDW HQ, we are in for a treat. Enter the third issue of the new era of Spotlights, and covers aside, Nick Roche, well known for his work with the Last Stand of the Wreckers, is a one man wrecking crew, providing the artwork and the written component for Spotlight: Megatron.

Seibertron.com Reviews IDW Transformers Spotlight: Megatron


What amazes me is that it took this long into IDW's tenure for a Megatron spotlight to be released! Albeit, many of the issues prior to this one, in series such as the previous Ongoing and the All Hail Megatron series, dive deep into Megatron's character. Yet as much as I do want to know even more about Megatron with an extrapolation of the Transformers (Ongoing) #22, (Ongoing #23 spawned Orion Pax stories in RID, MTMTE's Shadowplay and his own spotlight) this issue is as much about Megatron, as it is about Starscream.

Seibertron.com Reviews IDW Transformers Spotlight: Megatron


The more I stop to think about, the more I realize that much like Megatron and Optimus Prime - Megatron and Starscream are just as inseparable. I believe we know all of this as Transformers fans, but Roche shines new light to this. Much like his compatriots in Roberts and Barber, he is able to twist and turn our heart strings, and bring emotion to play. In this issue alone, he makes us feel compassionate not just for Starscream, but for Megatron as well.

Seibertron.com Reviews IDW Transformers Spotlight: Megatron


In context, this comic happens before the events of Ongoing #13. The significance is more or less Starscream's actions in the comics we have read from #13, up to this point. Stylistically, I have to say, wow, Megatron's new alternate mode has so much meaning to it. Well done IDW.

Seibertron.com Reviews IDW Transformers Spotlight: Megatron


Overall, Roche provides a stunning display of story and artwork that far exceeds expectations of a characterization for the renowned Decepticon leader. Worth the price of the issue!

Laughs

(Spoiler free-ish)


My goodness, it has been quite some time since the last issue of Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye! This week, the drought ends with the thirteen issue, which is released with not just one other, but two other comics, in this IDW Transformers heavy week. Likely many have already seen the recently revealed cover for this issue, and were happy to see human holomatter avatars. All I have to say is that these characters are already so dynamic and human in my book. Our cast of a dozen or so Autobots have all developed well, and as fans we've grown attached!

Seibertron.com Reviews IDW Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye Ongoing #13 Preview


This issue self proclaims that it is all about rest and relaxation - for once the bots of the Lost Light are putting down their guns, and in turn I believe we got one of the best issues of the series yet. Roberts skill is dialogue and while we've grown accustomed to war time dialogue in recent issues, it is in this downtime dialogue where Roberts shines.

Seibertron.com Reviews IDW Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye Ongoing #13 Preview


Stylistically, we do have a change in the artist roster slot, as Guido Guidi subs in for Alex Milne. I do have say that Guidi's style fits in with this issue's theme, and if you're not a fan, Milne will be back under center in Issue #14. The nods and recognition of prior IDW Transformers lore and the comics fanbase is adamantly strong in this issue, with appearances by Verity, Nova Prime, Blurr and 'Mary Sue'.

Seibertron.com Reviews IDW Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye Ongoing #13 Preview


Sadly, not all the characters get to receive the focus in every issue. Ultra Magnus provides phenomenal dialogue, while Swerve and his 'friendship' with Blurr is given a little twist! The dynamic between Cyclonus and Tailgate is extrapolated and built upon. The highlight of this issue has to be the holomatter avatars - Whirl's just keeps making me laugh.

Seibertron.com Reviews IDW Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye Ongoing #13 Preview


This is hands down, the funniest Transformers issue we've had in ages, and at the same time, still holds significance in this series. Everything about this issue was grand, sans for the little RodimusxDrift panel that will be haunting my dreams for awhile, although I'm sure it will be in some fangirl's dreams for days to come.
