Transformers writer Simon Furman has updated his blogpage and added a little special gift for us Transformers fans. The following has been taken directly from his blog, where you can also download the document containing the script for the unproduced Beast Wars Comic.

"A big HAPPY HOLIDAYS (from me) to one and all in this the festive season. And special thanks to all of you who’ve visited, commented on or otherwise supported my blogging efforts to date. And here’s a little Xmas something for you all, a look at the Beast Wars series that never was, in the shape of my original script for ‘Shell Game’ issue #1. Created to tie in with the BW Summer Special story published by a certain ex-TF publisher, it differs significantly from what became (in the fullness of time) Beast Wars: The Gathering. Click on the link below to view. Enjoy… and I’ll be back on New Year’s Eve (or before) with my retrospective look at 07 (and maybe a look forward to 08!)".

While the idea sounds cool from what he said about it, I'd rather not have to read all that text. So could someone summarize it, please?

Can we get a conclusion to War Within 3?

The story is very similar to the first issue of IDW's Beast Wars series with Razorbeast working undercover, etc., however there is nothing in the story about temporal displacement. Magmatron's crew arrives just as Primal and the Maximals leave Earth.

The big difference is that the story includes the Maximals from DW's summer story reaching out to contact Rattrap on the shuttle and convince him to turn the shuttle around bringing the BW cartoon crew BACK to Earth (along with Megatron).

Of interesting note... in the properties section of the Word file... it says "War Within #6."
