Optimus Prime #11 iTunes Preview

Weapon: Vibro-Axe
Thanks to iTunes, we have a three-page preview of the upcoming eleventh issue of the Optimus Prime ongoing series. While this issue is arriving just a bit late (it leads into First Strike, just within this preview), there's still plenty of Aileron, the colonists, Thundercracker, and Buster(!) to keep you entertained, just in case you're not following First Strike. Due out on October 11th, let us know if you'll be picking this up, and come back to discuss it once it's released and reviewed!

With Optimus Prime embroiled in the FIRST STRIKE event, the Autobots on Earth set off on a mission to find one of their own—before anti-Cybertronian humans get to him first!

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Courtesy of artist Andrew Griffith's Twitter account, we have a look at his variant cover (Artist Edition) for IDW Publishing's Optimus Prime #14 - which will take place after the events of First Strike, and is due in December 2017- and featuring Trypticon and the Dinobots in their current looks since Maximum Dinobots. Check it out below!

OPTIMUS PRIME #14 CVR C ARTIST ED GRIFFITH

On Cybertron, Optimus Prime battles the Dinobots over the first new Cybertronian life to emerge in four million years! But does he stand a chance when the Dinobots’ newest member is two miles tall and eats cities?

TBH i hope they used the advent of the power of the primes line to redesign the dinobots.

nicks designs for em just dont work with other artists IMO.

Particularly swoop who always looks god awfull.

its the dinobots for gods sake, they should look awesome charging into battle. instead im always left feeling a bit "meh" . thats a bad sign considering theyre my favorite sub group.

I agree, the look the Dinobots have had since RiD/ex-RiD/OP started haven't really worked for me. I want them to get some redesigning

Variant Covers for IDW Optimus Prime #12 & #13 by Zama, Griffith, Lafuente

Postby Va'al » Wed Oct 04, 2017 1:32 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Via both IDW Publishing and Previews World, we have variant covers for upcoming issues of the ongoing Transformers series Optimus Prime, namely issue #12 and #13! The talent seen in the art belongs to Andrew Griffith and Joana Lafuente for the former, with Thundercracker and Buster on one and the other sporting a general classics line-up plus Windblade (using those Authentics/evergreen designs, in fact); we find Kei Zama and Josh Burcham on the main cover for #13, with Andrew Griffith taking on a close-up of the Dinobots (as Ramondelli works on interiors, which looks like a continuation of the Dinobot Trilogy story). Check them out below!

With Optimus Prime trapped on Cybertron, the Autobots track down their missing friend, Jazz-and find themselves under fire from humans armed with Cybertronian weapons.

Bullet points:
* While First Strike blows up Cybertron, the Autobots must keep the peace on Earth!


Image

Image


As the consequences of the First Strike event reverberate, Optimus Prime ventures into the wilderness of Cybertron to search for the first new Cybertronian life to emerge in four million years!

I believe that's Sovereign, Alpha Trion's temporary Headmaster/Titan Master in the IDW continuity.

Sovereign is technically Blackrock, not Alpha Trion's head, but that is also my guess!

Blackrock! Looks like he’ll be staying on Cybertron after First Strike. Will the rest of the Revolutionaries be joining him?

It'd make sense to drop them off in Barber's hands. Of course, I can also imagine a scenario where they sideline some of those characters for a while.

this intrigues me. I see the Evergreen designs for Prime, Bee, Megs, Screamer, and Soundwave, but the 3 Autobots(and Windblade)in the background are new designs for Wheeljack, Hot Rod, and I think Ironhide. I hope we'll see more of those designs in the future, because I like them.

Main Cover Art for IDW Optimus Prime #14 by Kei Zama/Josh Burcham

Postby Va'al » Thu Oct 05, 2017 3:45 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
In new news from IDW Publishing, we have the clean art (instead of the logo and details version) of another cover from the ongoing Transformers series Optimus Prime's 14th issue (due in December), by Kei Zama and Josh Burcham. And if you're a spoopy lover, you will probably appreciate this take on Bludgeon and his synthoplasmic outer shell face. Check it out below!

On Cybertron, Optimus Prime battles the Dinobots over the first new Cybertronian life to emerge in four million years! But does he stand a chance when the Dinobots’ newest member is two miles tall and eats cities?

Am I the only one super confused by the art credits? This first couple pages look like Alex Milne(the humans especially) and later it looks like Zama’s stile of humans.
