The following item has crossed the desks of the news room of Seibertron news, regarding the future of the Transformers comics as well as that of GI Joe;

The recent rumors of the new "General Rey GI Joe" and the "G1 revival as Alternators" comics has a singlar root:

Both lines are getting a makeover in the toy aisles, and it will translate into a new direction for both comics. Cobra is taking a breather as a new terrorist group rises, and the Joes get a complete overhaul to combat this new threat. (i.e. soldiers that aren't pushing 60.)

Similarly, the group of G1 Autobots stranded on Earth are getting the Alt makeover to combat not only the Decepticons... but the Cons' new human allies who are helping to hunt down our Autobuddies. And to top it off, the new Joes aren't exactly rooting for either side in the TF war.

The Cons are bad news, but the Autobots are magnets for destruction. So our favorite Autobot heroes will be outgunned, outnumbered and on the run. The Ark is gone. They can't reach Cybertron... or Optimus Prime.

They have no back-up but a secret group of human allies. And Sunstreaker & Trailbreaker are acting awfully funny lately...

Both comics will play off of each other for a year or so, with a big
cross-over planned as a climax to the stories when everything starts hitting the proverbial fan around the time the TF movie hits.


It should be noted that several months ago a similar rumor was spread over the internet, saying that Dreamwave was planning a Transformers Alternator 6 issue comic, supposedly to be released somewhere late 2005, which basically had similar suggestions about the storyline as this report has. This was before the big news hit about Dreamwave closing its doors. So this could very well have been originated from the same rumor, and has now gone full circle.

So far, none of this has been confirmed to the best of our knowledge.
