Courtesy of IDW Publishing, we have information for the upcoming comics that will be released in the month of May. First up are our returnees, Robots In Disguise and More Than Meets The Eye with their 17th issues, alongside Regeneration One with #11. We have a new series, aptly named Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters, and the latest spotlight, Hoist. Lastly, the paperbacks for Transformers Prime: Rage of the Dinobots and Regeneration One Vol. 2.


TRANSFORMERS SPOTLIGHT: HOIST

James Roberts (w), Agustin Padilla(a), Padilla, Livio Ramondelli (c)

FACE OFF! HOIST has always managed to fade into the background: until now. Trapped on an alien planet with a narcissist, half a scientist and a creature that may or may not turn into a catapult, the Lost Light's mild-mannered maintenance engineer must confront the five most dangerous DECEPTICONS ever.

32 pages, $3.99.

After the stunning revelations in MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE, learn the origin of the one-eyed, gun-handed master of machinations... and the countdown begins for the biggest TRANSFORMERS event in comic book history.

32 pages, $3.99.

TRANSFORMERS REGENERATION ONE #91

Simon Furman (w), Andrew Wildman(a), Wildman, Guido Guidi (c)

THINGS FALL APART! The very fabric of the TRANSFORMERS' universe begins to unravel, as huge and ancient cosmic forces take note of CYBERTRON's (and the CYBERTRONIANS') descent into chaos and anarchy.

MORE DINOBOTS!!! This is great news and keeps my hopes of seeing new Dinobot figures alive! I will definitely be following this comic series. :KREMZEEK:

Also, this seems to strongly indicate that we'll see the Dinobots, or at least Grimlock, in TFP Beast Hunters! Anybody else thinking the same? :D

I see a possible Deluxe class Hoist w/ Spotlight comic on the horizon.

So they're actually following up with Shockwave's surprising origin and tying it into Robots in Disguise? And it's leading to some big event Shockwave presumably has a hand in?

Sorry, Roberts, but I'm gonna read what Barber's up to for a change.

So it's 100% certainty that ReGen will stop at #100. :( I was hoping it would be successful enough to become an ongoing series.

Yup, we're getting a Generations Hoist.

So is the Prime Beast Hunters comic supposed to be a sort of sequel to Rage of the Dinobots? Where would it take place? Still in the ancient past after the RotD mini? In the present day near the cartoon's time? Somewhere in between?

It was always meant to end at 100 because it was made to be the untold final chapter of the original Marvel Comics run. So, in a way, it already is an ongoing, just the very end part of one.

Yay! Generations Hoist figure coming our way. It's taken Hasbro long enough, but they're finally coming good. :BOWDOWN:

Oh...I just posted in another thread saying I didn't think that green robot on the Metroplex box was Hoist, but looking at this cover it looks like it is indeed Hoist, and highly likely we will get a figure.

Lots of Dinobot Covers, yet no Toyfair announcements of more Dino figures???? I'm predicting a botcon or SDCC announcement for Dinos?

Maybe the other 4 FOC Dinos packaged with the 4 Rage of the Dinobots comics???

I thought only the Spotlights were going to include Deluxe size figures.
I don't think we've heard anything about other titles having their own figures too.

But I may be wrong!

Agreed. Any other cover is going to look like crap that month by comparison.
