Review for IDW Transformers Beast Wars 3

Only spoilers in this review


Transformers News: Review for IDW Transformers Beast Wars 3


This is the issue where Dinobot turns and I think it sucks. There, that's the review in a nutshell. Of course, I will dive more into it but that's all this issue will be about because for the most part, that's all that happens. I don't mind that this is all that happens, but if the idea of a longer format retelling of a familiar story is to get more from the characters, this issue really fails at that. The golden rule for visual mediums is to show and not tell. And here we get both show and tell, with Dinobot giving a ridiculously long speech that is essentially the same line over and over again said slightly different as he battles his way through his Predacon brethren. And it becomes pretty one note fast. Which is a major insult to Dinobot, a character that I always felt was the opposite of one note. What is awesome about Dinobot is that in the show, it always felt like the Maximals still had a Predacon amongst them. Here he is reduced to basically already being a maximal, a warrior with the heart of gold spouting some quotes of honour. One of the most layered characters in all of Transformers history now reduced to a trope, it's sad.

It also makes no sense in the story. He's been with Megatron's crew for a while, he knows how deviant Tarantulus is and how bloodthirsty Terrorsaur is and he stayed around. But now I guess he has to join the Maximals for it to be like the show, so let's quickly make that happen now that they have crash landed. I realize now how smart the original show was to have him be rejected from the Predacons rather than leave of his own accord. Because or else, it just doesn't make as much sense. And I really thought he wouldn't "turn" so early, and we'd have time to see him interacting as a Predacon with the other Predacons but that's not the case.

Transformers News: Review for IDW Transformers Beast Wars 3


There's a trick to knowing if the characters feel true to me, it's having them speak as the voice actor while I read it. It works for Rhinox, most of the Predacons (especially Megatron, yesss) and Rattrap. But not with Dinobot, nor Cheetor and not Optimus Primal. I said in the last review that we are seeing how his changes to his character have repercussions and how it could be interesting but now it's getting annoying. I don't mind him being more adventurous than before but here he sounds like an idiot and by no means a leader of any sort.

And the art hasn't changed, so if you didn't like it, nothing here will change your mind. I personally do not like it and I find the changes to Dinobot's look with the extra spikes really odd. Those spikes aren't even thematic to his beast mode, so what gives? There are a few other shortcomings in the storytelling. During the fight between Dinobot vs his 6 fellow Predacons, there is a lack of fluidity in action shots where a lot happens in the gutter (between the panels). So in one panel you'll see him facing the team at more than arm length away, and in the one right after you have Terrorsaur landing on Scorponok after being thrown. John Burcham is great at dynamic scenes, like the fights in last issue, but he feels shortchanged here. Instead of better fluidity in the fighting, we get a page dedicated to doors being shut. Yay.

I was ok with the series so far but this is the worst issue yet and I have yet to see a reason for this series to exist. But hey, that retail incentive cover by Josh Perez is pretty kick ass!

2 out of 5 Dinobot spikes for this issue.

Greetings Seibertronians! Following on from our earlier news of brand new listings found, and one of them being Blurr, there was some discussion at how this Blurr would look. Well Thanks to the intrepid skills of fellow Seibertronians, Sabrblade and Chriphord, we now know that this is is Shattered Glass Blurr!

This is because this listing was found on Hasbro Pulse:

Transformers News: Listing Found on Hasbro Pulse for Shattered Glass Blurr

Additionally, this also seems to confirm the existence of am IDW Shattered Glass comic series, though if this is reprinting of old Shattered Glass material (from Fun Pub) or brand new stories remains to be seen.

It should be noted though that while the original Shattered Glass Blurr (seen as the article thumbnail), was a redeco of Armada Blurr, its likely that this one will just be a redeco of the recently released Studio Series 86 Blurr. We'll endeavour to bring you pictures as we get them.

There was a few other figures said to be part of this line including Megatron, Starscream and Jetfire.

What do you think of this news? Looking forward to building a Shattered Glass collection?

The entire issue is discussed in this review


Transformers News: Review for IDW Transformers Beast Wars Issue 2



This issue was a series of interactions among various characters. Of course, that's what all stories are but what I mean here is that every 2 pages we got different characters talking to one another and this gave us a great sense of their relationships and personalities. It was basically a series of small character pieces all in one comic, ending with a pretty great action scene.

I especially like how different the Maximals are to the Predacons. All Predacon interactions are violent, with no sense of comradery. I loved the scene between Dinobot and Tarantulus, where the allegiance and disdain for hierarchy among Megatron's soldiers is made loud and clear. Dinobot is one of my favourite characters from my childhood and I am happy to see him interact with his fellow Predacons as an ally, since that's something we never really saw in the original Beast Wars show.

The other interaction I like is Optimus Primal and Nyx, but more for Primal's characterization. We see more of that younger and adventure hungry Primal here and how this side of him affects him as a leader. I like it. I already had the more world weary and pensive Primal, so it's fun to see this side of him. I also thought Josh Burcham drew him really well. The art will still not win a ton of people over but as someone who was not a fan, I did think Primal looked great. The simple approach to the fur in robot mode reminded me of the original toy where the molded fur detail would be more apparent at the edges. And speaking of the original toy, his transformation in the comic was a nice callback.

Transformers News: Review for IDW Transformers Beast Wars Issue 2

So, back to this less risk averse Primal, we see in this issue just what the consequences of this change can entail for the safety of his crew. It leads to a terrific scene with Terrorsaur. Once again Josh Burcham really delivers here with a great looking Pteranodon mode and some fun shots and angles, making for a very dynamic scene. I especially like the predatory POV shot we get (I won't spoil that shot in this review).

Transformers News: Review for IDW Transformers Beast Wars Issue 2

However, like I wrote earlier, the art in this issue won't change your mind. There are some odd choices, like how Scorponok's tail seems designed by Tim Burton and the lack of background in particular scenes is very glaring. The characters are expressive though, and the scenes are dynamic. So I choose to take the good and leave the bad. You do you.

Transformers News: Review for IDW Transformers Beast Wars Issue 2


We also get a small taste of the VOK and I am fine seeing them this early. We get a sense of all the players being brought to the table. I was never a fan of the VOK, they always felt anticlimactic to me in the original show, so I'll wait to pass judgement until I see more. At least their appearance this early already avoids the anti climax the show gave us when we found out what they really looked like.

Overall, I preferred this issue to the first, I really loved the character interactions. If you liked the characters from the original, especially the Predacons, then I recommend you check this out.

Do you have a Transformers 1 comic at home? I'm referring to the original Marvel comic, from 1984 with the picture of Optimus Prime being as big as Godzilla. Well, if you do, it might be worth a whopping $44 000. That is the price the comic got on auction the other day over at comiclink.com.
It was a graded comic (meaning a third party company graded it and put it in a plastic case) with a grade of 9.9. There are 3 comics out there with the same grade at the moment but probably more that look just as good, not yet graded, given this is not a rare comic in the least. If your copy looks great, maybe sending it in for grading at CGC could get you a similar grade and thus the similar payday.
