Simon Furman has updated his Blog once again, this time with information pertaining to the upcoming Issue #8 of the Titan UK Transformers Magazine.

Issue #8 will deal with one of the questions many fans have asked since the Transformers Movie was released... What happened to Scorponok?

Another ’squeezed into a bit of dead space in the movie’ story, this one concerns the fate of Scorponok, last seen burrowing underground in an almightly hurry after the aerial barrage in Qatar. He’s been laying low since then, but when Ironhide and a Special Forces team (new characters, developed especially for the UK storyline) go looking they get a whole LOT more than they bargained for (and realise some things are better left buried). As with the previous Starscream story, this one gives a little more in the way of action/resolution to the movie itself, and provides Ironhide with a real workout (though not necessarily in the way you might think). Scorponok proves to be a much tougher character than his bio and onscreen appearance maybe suggests, and ties up something of loose end.

Furman has let slide who will be doing the art duties for the upcoming Spotlight: Grimlock. Marcelo Matere who has previously worked on Spotlight: Soundwave and on Titan UK #6 featuring Jazz, which is to be released on December 6th 2007.

i still only have the first issue of the u.k. comic. these blog previews of them sound cool but i can't really see them being as good as IDW's actual comics. I'll buy the tpb when/if its released.

anyone care to say I'm wrong?

Anyone know the best way to get ahold of this magazine in the USA? I've seen the first 2 issues, but none later.

He did Spotlight: Soundwave, not Shockwave...
And he's not on my highlist as far as artistry goes.
