Fellow Seibertronians, courtesy of weibo (again) we now have several stock photographs of the upcoming Movie Masterpiece Bumblebee figure. These pictures show that the yellow is of a more vivid hue than other Bumblebee figures tend to be, and that the grey is quite a bit darker than the official pictures would have us believe. The pictures have been mirrored below, and you can check out the source here, and if you need to refresh yourself check out the official images of MPM Bumblebee and all of its features. What is new here is the "exclusive" sticker seen on the box which confirms the early doubts from the Toysrus listing that it was a Toysrus Exclusive. That means there would be no preorders available stateside as this product is only available on Toysrus, just like what happened with the Chaos on Velocitron set. So what do you think of how this figure is shaping up? Let us know in the comments below.

The official website for Paramount's Transformers: The Last Knight live-action movie has appeared online fully updated, including videos, clips, teasers, trailers, the official synopsis and robot cast bios and links to the social media accounts (plus a new background track from the movie score). Check it out here, and let us know what you think of our coverage of the early footage and information we were able to gain access to via Paramount direct!

The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).

There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.

New Characters
Over the next few weeks we’ll be giving our VIP players an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at our new Beast Wars characters.


Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Event - Primal Instinct
Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Event - Primal Instinct
Though young and untested, Optimus Primal soon rose to the challenge of leadership.

More down-to-Cybertron than his legendary namesake, and prone to stuffy speeches, Primal is nevertheless committed to the Maximal codes of honor and duty and is brave and selfless in battle.

But he is not above finding unorthodox solutions to problems - in his own words, "sometimes, crazy works".

 


Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Event - Primal Instinct
Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Event - Primal Instinct
Though fierce and ruthless like his namesake, and determined to further the Predacon cause whatever the cost, Megatron's true art lies in manipulation. 

Why do yourself what others can do for you, is Megatron's credo. 

Cunning, patient, Megatron orchestrates his vast schemes with the precision of a virtuoso. But his twisted sense of humor and overdeveloped sense of drama make him a little too fond of his own cleverness.

 

Next week our art team will give you an insight into the creation of the new bots and their transformations.

Do Go 'Round Tonight
A Review of Transformers: Lost Light #4

As spoiler-free as I can make it. Probably. I tried.
Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Lost Light #4 Review
The next mission begins!

The latest chapter of the massive, sweeping Transformers ongoing comics arrive this week, with two very different stories gracing shelves. One is Till All Are One #8, which judging from sales numbers is the best Transformers comic that Transformers fans don't read and you should feel bad about that. The other is the subject of this review, Lost Light #4. We're in the middle of a story arc that's six issues deep, and now we're past the halfway point. How are things shaping up with our heroes scattered about and in various states of misadventure?

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Lost Light #4 Review
The light begins to shine

Simultaneously, situations improve and decline across the three main plots of this issue. There's "Team Rodimus", stranded on Functionist Cybertron to take up one of these main plot lines, and with the agonizing cliffhanger of issue 3 get ready for, well, another cliffhanger. It's in the best of ways though if I'm honest about it. Anyone that watches Game of Thrones knows that sometimes an ending that leaves you unsatisfied for now, where you want to know more and see more and figure out what might happen next, can be a good ending. It means that you're wrapped up in something compelling, and when the attention of the book turns to this plot my eyes are glued to the page in anticipation and wonderment.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Lost Light #4 Review
Behold: Super close-cropping to avoid a spoiler

Back on Necroworld, which may or may not be in the "main" universe of the Transformers and Hasbro Universe books, there are two plot threads running through this issue. One of them is action packed and oozing with plot progression and character moments, and that's the one featuring Cyclonus, Whirl, Tailgate, and a recently awakened nemesis in Killmaster. This also ends on a cliffhanger - a good, effective one that leaves me wanting to read more. While it's not certain, it definitely seems that things aren't going to end well here, but then again, Cyclonus told us so in February of 2012 in the pages of More Than Meets The Eye #2, didn't he?

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Lost Light #4 Review
Why are dad and dad fighting?

Then there's the argument in my head over whether or not the argument above really needed to happen here. After taking time and pursuing a more thoughtful analysis, it does. The visual storytelling in surrounding panels justifies the space, not to mention it makes sense for the characters involved. It progresses some long running plots in various ways, and is called back to effectively later in the issue.

Then there's the third small plot that's moved along in this issue, involving Anode and Lug. I've been a defender of these characters' inclusion and development for this arc, but their purpose is now fuzzy whereas it didn't feel that way earlier. The additional backstory is nice, and building up new characters is great, but something about the three pages given to these two newer arrivals missed the mark. The point is clear, the event that happened to end the scene is sure to be relevant later, and there is genuine purpose to all the words. None of that's really critical, of course, so what gives? It certainly wasn't the visuals, which were handled wonderfully by Jack Lawrence and Joana Lafuente's always sublime Necroworld color palette.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Lost Light #4 Review

What it may be is a very purposeful usage of too many words. If you look at the roughly one-third of a page shown above, it doesn't have many words by the end, yet so much is said. The "new" Megatron, defined.

Were Lug's actions supposed to be ours?

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Lost Light #4 Review
The Last Action Master

Aside from the already mentioned Lawrence and Lafuente, there's the return of Tom B. Long on letter work. As usual, Long's work is fantastic and I don't have enough superlatives to describe it. Nick Roche and Josh Burcham again provide an outstanding cover fitting thematically with their other variant covers from the series so far, but a special mention needs to go to Alex Milne and Josh Perez's cover featuring Megatron and Terminus. This right here is frame-worthy.

As always, you can find full credits and covers in our database entry for Lost Light #4, along with a list of characters that appear in the issue (sometimes pretty early on release day depending on my alarm clock) so do be aware of possible spoilers.

Verdict
Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Lost Light #4 Review

Scores don't feel fair to big multi-part works. The more this goes on, the more it's clearly intended to be read all together as a six issue story. To be fair, Mr. Roberts has more-or-less directly pointed this out, or that's at least how I took it. That element holds this issue back a bit, but only a bit. Be sure to pick this one up and head back here to speculate about the future here on our forums by replying to this post.

. :CYBERTRON: :CYBERTRON: :CYBERTRON: :CYBERTRON: out of :CYBERTRON: :CYBERTRON: :CYBERTRON: :CYBERTRON: :CYBERTRON:


Bonus! James Roberts' soundtrack suggestions for this issue:
  • Nils Frahm - "You"
  • The New Pornographers - "The Bleeding Heart"
  • Interpol - "Next Exit (Stay)"

Encore Bonus! Uniclock Update:
I'm going to be reviewing this series for the site for a while, and some of you can guess why this is. I'm moving our Lost Light/Hasbro Comics Universe Doomsday Clock, the Uniclock, ahead one minute. After reading the issue you may think this is a bit over-conservative, but at least for right now, well, in John Barber I'll choose to trust and assume the slow burn will remain slow for awhile longer as stated in the linked Twincast interview with him. We'll see how long though. Another issue with this many signs and it's going to start to look like we'll find out the answer to the question "Where do you go?"

Hopefully by now we all know that there is no actual movie, but what there is is a fantastic one-off romp through Scioli's mad-capped mash-up of some of our favorite Hasbroites. This book is certainly meant to be a one time adventure, and redelivers on all the weird and crazy story telling wrapped in the warped artistic package fans of the series have come to expect. It does not disappoint.

The story line is almost new, touching on and rehashing some of the more prevalent themes from the original series, but condensing them down into a more cohesive "screen play", if you will.

-Story

The story opens with the age old notion that Cybertronian's and Earthling's fates have been intertwined through out the annals of time.

Stop! Hammer of time!


The tale is told more through the narrative of the Joes. Scioli covers a lot of ground quickly through "A Letter to Sis" as written by Snake eyes.

Let 'em have it boys!


And primarily through that of Scarlet. Like other live action Transformers movies, it relies heavily on the "human element".

What is love? Baby don't hurt me. Don't hurt me. No more.


The story delves deeply into the minds and emotions of our favorite sentient heroes. Unbreakable bonds of love. The comradery of war hardened allies. The essence of the evils that threaten the very fabric of our cosmos. The trials and tribulations of family.

But it leaves plenty of room for some hard hitting, Cobra stomping, Con slagging action!

The book reads fast and furious which adds to the fun. It does feel a tad rushed, and perhaps merely an avenue to get some of the better ideas left on the cutting room floor from the original series, back into the pages of a comic.

But it still manages to make for an action-packed smash hit blockbuster thrill-ride of the summer!


-Art

A point of contention for many who have tried Scioli's works. But it's important to note that he knows exactly what he's doing. A great teacher once told me, "You can't break the rules, unless you know what the rules are. Otherwise you are just making a mess".

While Scioli's art appears at first glance to be juvenile, and an amateur mess, he knows exactly what he's doing. He knows the rules well, and he is breaking them with grace and style. Each panel is laid out in a composition that keeps the eye moving all around the frame. He does so even in his line work. At times I found myself re-reading the text several times because my brain was to busy keeping up with my roving eye. His use of color also adds to the musical mayhem of each panel using almost annoyingly florescent hues to garner focus on the subject, again leading the eye back and forth around the composition. Even his placement of the word bubbles and the text within them adds to this element of composition. Concreting him as a true wizard in the art of comic books.

Just TRY to sit still, eyeball!


Of course one of the best parts of Scioli's art are the sight gags!

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers vs G.I. Joe The Movie Adaptation
No silly quip necessary.


One thing I did feel was missing, and probably my favorite thing about the original series, were the two-page Where's Waldo-esque spreads that one could spend hours poring over always finding some new hidden surprise tucked into the the intricacies of the drawing.

-Low Down
Over all the book is a good fun read, packed with all the silliness and splendor we got from the series. It was just nice to have one more jaunt through Scioli's childhood world of imaginary fantasies. If you enjoyed the series, there's no reason why you shouldn't enjoy this film/not a film.

Oh! And don't forget, the DVD comes packed with bonus features. Including cast interviews and making of featurettes! ;)

We brought you a fair amount of content recently on Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-36 Megatron - our latest here - but thanks to Twincaster megatronus, we also have so eyebrow-raising information via site sponsor HobbyLinkJapan: the return of the orange cap for the gun mode of the toy. This seems to only apply to US and Australia, due to their firearm laws, but may extend to other markets too. Why this is different from previous reports of an orange cap is because this comes from a Japanese seller and it was still unsure if they would put an orange cap or not. Several fans bought from Japanese sellers instead of stateside vendors to avoid the orange cap, but it seems that plan won't work out. Read more about it below!

Hello-

This is Mark Kutsugi at HobbyLink Japan. Thank you very much for your order with us for Takara-Tomy's Transformers Masterpiece MP-36 Megatron. We anticipate starting to fill orders for this item on or about April 3 Japan time.

This toy will be packaged in robot mode. However, it can be transformed into a realistic-looking likeness of a gun, which we understand is also pictured on this item's packaging. As a result, for customers in the United States and Australia, HobbyLink Japan will be placing a plastic orange plug into the end of the barrel in order to keep this toy in compliance with Title 15, Chapter 76 of the United States Code.

Installing this plug on the item will require our staff to open the packaging, which will require cutting the tape holding the box flap closed. This will be performed with the utmost care, but of course it will prevent us from delivering this product to U.S. and Australian customers in "unopened" condition. Note that without this modification, your purchase could be confiscated by your country's customs service, and U.S. customers could be charged with a crime under the above U.S. Federal law.

HobbyLink Japan understands and appreciates the desires of toy collectors in the U.S. and Australia related to merchandise of this nature, and we feel this is the best solution to meet those needs under the circumstances. In order to maintain your item's compliance with your country's laws, we recommend that you do not remove the plastic plug after you have received the item.

We appreciate your understanding, and your business with us.


Best Regards,


Mark Kutsugi
HobbyLink Japan
