Summary

Simon Furman

- There are plans to bring Galvatron into the IDW comic universe but nothing specific. Although he mentioned 'Other dimension stuff' that will appear in the Nightbeat spotlight.

- In the Ultra Magnus Spotlight he wants to see him step over the line a little bit. Possibly more like Grimlock.

-There may be "some Headmasters stuff" in the IDW Universe.

- Furman doesn't want to overuse Grimlock. He was in the Shockwave spotlight and won't show up again. for a while.

- he wants to do a Soundwave Spotlight which we might see more Ratbat in.

- He approached Bludgeon in the IDW series the same way he did before. Don made some design changes to make him more scary.

- Something that happens to one of the human characters in the 1st issue of Escalation which will have big repercussions. However he is aware Transformers is all about the robots.

+ Furman's thoughts on Female Transformers: There has to be a rational for any character he uses. Females never worked for him. Why are there female robots? Until he has a reason why, he won't use them.

- Furman "would love to do more with" Marvels new Death's Head.

- Furman has a love for Marvel comics because he grew up reading them. Working in the Marvel universe is just fabulous.

- Furman's influence would be Stan Lee.

- Furman will be working on some movie-related non-comic projects.

More specifics will be coming from Furman on Sunday.

Don Figueroa

- Don spoke of a reworked, 'less floppy' Titanium War Within Optimus Prime. Possibly as part of a two-pack with a reworked Megatron.

- Don also metioned a new non-repaint Titanium G1 Ultra Magnus toy that will transform without having to remove his armor.

- Don does not own the copywrites ti the Transformers art he does, once submitted to the companies they own it. Sometimes he sells originals which he gets to keep. But he cannot print them and sell them.

- Don Influence: Old school type. Jim Lee stuff, doesn't want to try and compete with other TF artists.
