Transformers News: Re: Transformers: Earth Wars Real Time Strategy Combat Mobile App Game







Bah-weep-graaaaagnah wheep nini bong!

Nebulan technology could be the key to the next stage of the Earth Wars.

Megatron and Optimus Prime make a decision but will curiosity in this technology be too much to ignore for some?

Transformers News: Re: Transformers: Earth Wars Real Time Strategy Combat Mobile App Game

Countdown to Nebulos

The Taste of Power

Megatron rarely takes notes from Optimus Prime's school of leadership. But this time around, he's unknowingly preaching from the same handbook.

The order is simple - Nebulan technology is a distraction, too risky to pursue!

But Perceptor's scientific curiosity and Shockwave's ambition surely mean a quest to uncover the secrets of Nebulan technology will soon commence...

Rundown on Everything There is to Know about Power of the Primes: When, How Much and Wave Contents

I see a lot of questions on the boards and with the recent shows and images surfacing online, I thought having everything in one place could help, at least as a reference.

Firstly, this line is basically Combiner Wars 2.0 with Prime Master Integration, and the Prime Masters use the very same ports as the Titan Masters from Titans Return.

Here are the 5 different classes and their suggested prices (which has increased from Titans Return for a few classes). Please remember that these are Hasbro's suggested prices to retailers based on the average retailer's cost and subsequent markup. They can be higher or lower depending on the retailer.

Prime Master: Approx. Retail Price: $5.99

There will be 12 in total coming out in the line (as far as we have been told) and each one will be a small robot which turns into a symbol representing on of the Primes. Everyone of these small robots have the same size and playability as Titan Masters. They each come in a with a small suit that homages a G1 pretender and which can turn into a weapon. The Prime Masters can also plug into the combiner hands and feet when they are used as armour, and they can also plug into the Matrix found in each leader class figure.

Transformers News: Rundown on Everything There is to Know about Power of the Primes: When, How Much and Wave Contents

Legends Class: Approx. Retail Price: $9.99

These are very similar to the legends class we got in Titans Return where most have a port to attach a Titan/Prime Master. There is no indication that these will turn into weapons, like some did in Combiner Wars. Their interaction in this line's ecosystem is with the Prime Masters.

Transformers News: Rundown on Everything There is to Know about Power of the Primes: When, How Much and Wave Contents

Deluxe Class Approx. Retail Price: $19.99

Every Deluxe class toy in this line can turn into an arm or a leg to combine with a voyager torso. Each Deluxe comes with a combiner hand which can plug into its body as some sort of shield or power up.

Transformers News: Rundown on Everything There is to Know about Power of the Primes: When, How Much and Wave Contents

Voyager Class Approx. Retail Price: $29.99

Every Voyager in this line can turn into a combiner torso to combine with the deluxe arms and legs. They each come with two combiner feet which plug onto their forearms as power gauntlets, as well as an engima of combination.

Transformers News: Rundown on Everything There is to Know about Power of the Primes: When, How Much and Wave Contents

Leader Class Evolution Approx. Retail Price: $49.99

To our current knowledge, every Leader Class in this line has an evolution gimmick (hence the word's inclusion in the size class name) where a smaller robot combines with parts of his alt mode and turns into a larger robot. Each of these so far are based on actual evolutions that have happened in Transformers fiction, turning a character into his evolved form. Each comes with a matrix which is Titan/Prime Master compatible.

Transformers News: Rundown on Everything There is to Know about Power of the Primes: When, How Much and Wave Contents

Titan Class Predaking (price yet to be revealed, though $150 price point is assumed)

This toy has yet to be fully revealed but from what we know it will be made of the 5 Predacons, and sport the traditional G1 colours. Each Predacon will all be around the voyager size, much like the previous Constructicons. His interaction in this line's ecosystem is that he can store both a matrix and the enigma of combination (and thus, any Titan/Prime Master)


Wave Breakdown and Time Frame

Hasbro goes by season for product releases, so I will translate that into an approximate time frame to give an idea of when the toys could be seen on shelves.

Wave 1: Between end of December 2017 and end of March 2018

Prime Master: Liege Maximo and Skullgrin Decoy Armor, Micronus and Cloudburst Decoy Armor, Vector Prime and Metalhawk Decoy Armor

Legends: Beachcomber, Dinobot Slash, Skrapnel, Windcharger

Deluxe: Autobot Jazz, Dinobot Slug, Dinobot Swoop, Dreadwind

Voyager: Grimlock, Starscream

Leader: Rodimus Prime, Optimus Prime


Wave 2: Between end of March 2018 and end of June 2018

Prime Master: Alchemist Prime and Submarauder Decoy Armor, Alpha Trion and Landmine Decoy Armor

Legends (all unconfirmed): Battleslash, Roadtrap, Tailgate

Deluxe: Blackwing, Dinobot Sludge, Dinobot Snarl, Moonracer, Terrorcon Rippersnapper

Voyager: Terrorcon Hun-Gurrr, Elita-1

Leader: Rodimus Unicronus, Optimus Prime

Several fans had found the original $79.99 price tag for the the Optimus Prime Voice Changer Helmet a bit hefty. For all those fans, we have some fun news thanks to cdavid3 who reached out to us with a sighting from Milpitas, CA. There, at a local Ross, he found this helmet for only $29.99, a %62.5 reduction from the original price. Would any of you buy it at that price? Let us know!

First Bomp
(Spoiler free-ish)



Synopsis
HOMECOMING! FIRST AID, the Autobots' Chief Medical Officer, returns to the Lost Light to find that everything has changed: the ship is now under the command of the treacherous GETAWAY, half of his closest friends are missing, and-most shocking of all-the crew is actually making progress...

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Lost Light #10
THIS close


Story

It's been a really long while since we last saw the Lost Light (ship) in its titular series, at least for more than a corner of a panel shot of the outside, and this issue has been expected by a lot of readers in generally two large camps of positive and negative apprehension. How did it fare? I find myself squarely between both.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Lost Light #10
#same


James Roberts' script brings First Aid and the Protectobots - and makes a running gag out of Rook's presence too that will sound familiar to the fandom (at least in the opening paragraph, if not the issue itself) - in a way that will please readers that wanted to see more of First Aid, that is most definitely a given. Along with him, and I'm thinking of Riptide and Mirage in particular, bring very much plenty of their core characteristics to a plotting that needs anchors.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Lost Light #10
Like canonical linchpin Rook


On the other side, there are two major points I disagree with in the issue: the twisting of the plot - which is an extremely gigantic spoiler to talk about here, so see below - and the disparity of treatment of character between Getaway and Megatron. Namely: how do you turn a character (Getaway) that has had legitimate motives for action, while terrible morals in doing said action, I am not disputing that and never have, into the Worst Character Ever by playing with issues of narcissism, despotry and manipulation - points he entirely 'redeemed' in the actual despot (Megatron) said character was going against?

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Lost Light #10
Look, I'm torn, ok?


There are obviously two more issues to make the writing work, including the frustrating take on Getaway so far that may be more justified (or at least explained, somehow), but I come away from this book with a feeling that The Twist has reduced that space significantly - and without good reason - and limit some character work that could've otherwise intervened. More below.


Art

In terms of the visual work, however, I believe this to be one of the best displays of patient and careful work by Jack Lawrence, who has a nowhere-near-easy job of laying out scenes and panels in such a way that can hint at what might be actually taking place without revealing anything until it actually is. But take a close look at the crowd scenes, on a second read, and compare to the individual shots.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Lost Light #10
Sample panel


What I also really appreciate, in the same way as that last point about the lineart, is how Joana Lafuente manages to bring a really quite dark tone overall by juxtaposing dull grey and brown palettes from the backgrounds with the otherwise brighter coloured characters and scenes - you know something just isn't quite right by just looking at it.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Lost Light #10
Other than the screeching, I mean


As a result, Tom B. Long work on letters doesn't have as much scope to include big fancy games, but the subtle plays with font sizes do lend themselves to the same effect as both art and colours. And he still manages to squeeze in some satisfying soundwords, too. I chose the Alex Milne and Josh Perez cover for the review thumbnail as a spotlighting reminder of the factions, but you can find all of the covers for the book right here, in our database entry.


Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

I was disappointed, as you may have been able to tell through the review. I was disappointed not because of the entirely made-up feud between #TeamRodimus and #GetawayDidNothingWrong (that neither side takes seriously except when people step in and think they both do), but at how perceptions of what makes a villain have worrying ramifications since Megatron's redemption and Getaway's first introduction. Yes, the series is character-driven for the most part, or at least latches on to the characters to drive its plot, but I feel there's something missing from a bigger ethical, moral picture. Is Getaway a lying populist riding a wave of actual malcontent? Yes. Does that mean that everyone who is following him is exactly the same? No. Are we in danger of equating the two? Yes. Was Megatron given the same damning treatment during and after a genocide trial..? Why are we so clearly manipulated as readers by the narrative?

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Lost Light #10
*coff*


Some of the characters are well written, well pitted against or with each other, but there are enough that are brought to the limit of their bio tag-line instead of using that as a core to make me not enjoy what the script might be trying to do with that comment. And I feel it detracts a lot from the space that the visual side of the story - for a recurring theme seen in all of TAAO for example - has to expand on how to deal with manipulation and the type of sequence that closes the book.

A Seibertron.com review of IDW ROM vs. Transformers: Shining Armor #4


Synopsis

Stardrive is torn between joining her fellow Transformers and staying with Rom and his knights… and the fate of an innocent world rests in her choice!


Transformers News: Re: IDW Rom Vs. Transformers: Shining Armor Series Thread
My actual face come page 16


Story

Here we are, issue 4 of 5, the leadup to the grand finale, the final chance to brace ourselves for the great conclusion. And let me tell you: the issue is spectacular in so many ways. Barber and Gage have done their job in an awesome way.

Transformers News: Re: IDW Rom Vs. Transformers: Shining Armor Series Thread
Oh, it really has been


Let's get this out of the way straight out of the gate: this story is strange and weird, spectacularly so, and would not fit anywhere else but in the pages of a crossover from 200 years ago. The very concepts tackled over the course of the story, dealing with possession, wraith magic, and techno-organic fusions are very unique, and really only have 1 chance to be done right. And in this series, they are all done right. They are done in never before seen ways that really do capture your attention and make you want to see more (go to page 15's King Kong scene followed by the 16/17 shot to truly understand why this statement is so).

He's just jealous he's not getting all the praise


Outside of the absolute uniqueness of the story and the concepts, we have some fairly good characters to go with things. Character building, as was said in the previous reviews, is nothing to really be concerned about, seeing as how all characters involved already have good characterization already set up, or we won't really need to worry about what kind of characters they are for long. I liked how Magnus was used for the brief narration moments, how deliciously manipulative Starscream is, and how the character's voices work with each other, drowning out the more boring ones and providing a good overall balance.

So, good established characters, decent new characters, bizarre concepts and magics, and you have Shining Armor!

Art

Art duties are covered by the famous team of Alex Milne and Josh Perez, and while the story has been pretty good, save for some him-hawing around in issue 2, the art has not wavered from the amazing spectacle that it is. The characters, the backgrounds, and the spectacle that is the weirdness and outlandish of Shining Armor all shine through with Milne and Perez. The lines are great, the designs are good, the expressions are juicy, and the coloring works better this issue, with the nighttime better fitting the cold atmosphere described and the rising sun allowing the curtain to rise on the final sprint to the finish of the series a great scene.

Like I said, expressions


Shawn Lee covers the lettering in this issue, and while there is nothing really spectacular to write home about, there are no faults in the lettering. The speech bubbles don't inhibit the visuals in any way, and the standard knight/cybertronian speeches collected with the wraith bubbles are a nice balance.

Final Thoughts

Transformers News: Re: IDW Rom Vs. Transformers: Shining Armor Series Thread
I laughed at this. Had to include it


This series has proven to be one of the best crossovers the shared universe has had so far, and I would go so far as to say it is the best, but Kup and Action Man over in Revolutionaries makes that a bit difficult. The story is a good one, even if the main new character, Stardrive, is a bit predictable. The Wraiths and the Decepticons are great in this story though, and the art is fantastic, perfectly capturing how unique this series is. This is an issue I would highly recommend, and I'm hoping issue 5 finishes this off nicely, because it deserves it.
