And finally, from IDW Publishing, we have the official press release confirming the status, creative teams and general idea of the five-week Deviations project, and the one-shot featuring the Transformers - if Optimus Prime never died in the first place! Check it out below.

IDW Explores Alternate Timelines In ‘Deviations’!
The Five-Week Event Arrives In March


In a world where the Ghostbusters never crossed streams to save New York… In a world where Shredder was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ sensei… In a world where all your expectations are turned upside down—welcome to the world of Deviations, a weekly event series featuring alternate takes on some of IDW’s most popular books!

Starting with the Ghostbusters, readers will be taken to alternate realities of some of the most iconic heroes in comics with weekly one-shots that each highlight a different series. G.I. JOE will follow in the second week, exploring what would happen if COBRA finally won. The TRANSFORMERS comes next, looking at what the implications would be if OPTIMUS PRIME never died! Then, in X-Files Deviations, having been abducted by aliens, Fox Mulder never returned… and finally, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles one-shot will round out the event.

“When one moment changes,” said Chris Ryall, IDW Editor in Chief, “whole universes alter forever. We’re asking the questions fans have been pondering for years—and now we’ll see some answers.”

Both new and familiar faces will make their mark on this warped series as newcomers to the titles join fan-favorite creators!

In Ghostbusters Deviations,
Kelly Thompson(Jem and the Holograms) teams up with artist Nelson Daniel (Judge Dredd).
Paul Allor returns to G.I. Joe, with artwork by Corey Lewis(Sharknife).
TRANSFORMERS Deviations welcomes Brandon Easton (Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven) alongside Transformers: Robots in Disguise artist Priscilla Tramontano.
Amy Chu (Sensation Comics: Wonder Woman) explores The X-Files alongside Elena Casagrande (Doctor Who) and Silvia Califano (The X-Files: Season 10) on art.
Finally Tom Waltz (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) leads Zach Howard (Wild Blue Yonder) into the sewers for the TMNT Deviations.

Look for all five Deviations in your comic shop and online every week in March!

In a sneak preview to news announced today on the usual, other comics websites, IDW Publishing have uploaded a quick interview with editor in chief Chris Ryall, introducing their new comics event 'Deviations', a type of 'What If' five-week mini-series, with one spotlight on the Transformers... in a world where Optimus has never died. Check out the interview below, and head back here to Seibertron.com for more news as it happens!

Without giving too much away, what exactly is Deviations?

Deviations is, basically, a look at some of the bigger properties we publish, all of which have had many big, notable moments in their history, where we explore a divergent path in those storylines.

What led to you wanting to do this type of event?

All of the titles that make up this 5-week event have featured stories that have led to fun fan debates over what might have happened if a big event had gone another way, whether in past comics, TV series, or movies. So this is taking a big, fan-favorite moment and spinning that story in another direction to explore what could’ve been.

What series will be involved?

The series, and the catalyst for the stories, are:

Ghostbusters: “In a world… where the Ghostbusters NEVER crossed streams!”
G.I. JOE: “In a world… where COBRA turns the table on G.I. JOE.”
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: “In a world… where Shredder leads the Turtles.”
Transformers: “In a world… where Optimus Prime never died!”
The X-Files: “In a world… where young Fox Mulder was abducted by aliens!”

What’s your favorite “What If…” comic?

I was always a big fan of Frank Miller’s take on “What If Elektra Had Lived?” from the original series. In most of those old comics, the “what-if” story always ended far worse for the characters than in the regular series. Whether that was just to do big, explosive things in those comics or to assure readers things like “See? It’s much better that Phoenix DID die,” they usually all ended very badly. Miller’s Elektra tale, not so much—he took things in another direction entirely, and handled it all in unique fashion. Which is the goal here—anyone can play “what if?” games with stories but we’re really striving for these comics to do surprising, unexpected things. And who knows, if they go over well enough, maybe they could lead to entirely new series of this divergent timeline.

If the Combiner Wars G2 Menasor and G2 Superion sets announced earlier this year at San Diego Comic-Con were up your alley, then you'll be equally excited about Combiner Wars G2 Bruticus! A poor quality image of the front of the box leaked online yesterday, but now we've got some official images directly from Hasbro that we can share with all of you that Hasbro showed us during a presentation earlier this week.

Bruticus is a Decepticon Combiner made from the Combaticons Onslaught, Swindle, Brawl, Vortex and Blast Off. As an extra bonus, a Legends Class Shockwave figure is included so that you can recreate those classic scenes from the Generation One episode "The Revenge of Bruticus". This giftset presents all 6 of these characters in classic Generation 2 colors. Of special note is Shockwave, whose color scheme homages his 1990 G1 Action Master counterpart.

While an exact date was not specified for this product's release date, we're estimating some time around next summer (early 3rd quarter). As more information about this product becomes available, we will be sure to share it with all of you. Stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all of your latest Transformers news and information!

Adding to the press release we posted earlier, about Victory Hill and Hasbro teaming up in Las Vegas, the New York Times has a little more detail on what the Cybertron Con collaboration actually holds for the Transformers. Read up below, and start packing your bags - Vegas is calling!

LAS VEGAS — Batman has his bat cave. Superman has his fortress of solitude. And soon the Avengers and a team of Transformers will call a corner on the Las Vegas Strip home.

Treasure Island casino-hotel has leased 28,000 square feet above a CVS drugstore to Victory Hill Exhibitions to create immersive displays dedicated to the pop-culture brands.

The 10-year lease includes $2 million in tenant improvements to the corner space on Las Vegas Boulevard and Spring Mountain Road.

Victory Hill ended its 18-month run at the Discovery Times Square space in New York where it offered its Marvel's Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. exhibit. The Transformers exhibit is exclusive to Las Vegas and is still in development.

The exhibit is expected to open by March or April. Company officials haven't decided on an admission price.

Hasbro Investor Day 2015 Presentation: Possible Micronauts and Transformers Team Up

Hasbro's Investor day just took place and we have the presentation slides as well as the accompanying audio for everyone interested:

PDF
Audio

Out own Scotty P (podcaster extraordinaire) has his own commentary to lead fans through it:

Hasbro's Investor Day presentation was yesterday.

Some things of note:

Slide 20 (see first image below) has TF5 teaser logo (nothing exciting), and some new product called "Alt Modes" - looks like keychains or something but it's a very small image.
Slide 23 (see second image below) has the TF brand revenue (revenue to Hasbro, not retail sales to consumers! HUGE difference!) chart that we've seen in previous years updated to include the 9 months out of this year so far. Pretty good start for them.
Slide 34 talks about expanding footprint into more global markets.
Some new Kre-o product on Slide 37, but it does not look to be Transformers related. Read elsewhere it is a Chinese market exclusive line.
Slide 38 (see third image below): appears to announce Micronauts return - as a crossover with Transformers. Kind of cool considering Micronauts' roots as Microman.
I enjoyed the financial slides. Interesting bit on 61 about slightly increasing resin costs expected for 2016.
Slide 65 mentions a new e-commerce site. Direct to consumer sales or just B2B?

Poor GI Joe. Also no sign of M.A.S.K. which was on the last (I think last, maybe the one before last) Investor presentation.

Via Transformers@theMoon, the UK based site, we have some interesting, rumour-mongering tidbits of news which we leave to you all to decide the implications of. It appears that Hasbro have registered the trademarks for CybertronCon, currently the name of their big Transformers Asian convention - could this mean a name change for BotCon? Something more radical? Nothing at all? Let the speculations run wild in the Energon Pub!

Big news to Canadians. As many of you know,Target agressivley entered Canada only to leave it entirely within less than 2 years, taking over and removing the Zellers franchise and leaving Walmart with close to no competition (a case study for the ages). The sad part is that it now made it impossible for Canadians to get target exclusives. But not anymore since Target has just announced to sell to Canada at affordable shipping rates. Not only that, but to celebrate, they have a coupon where you take off 20$ cdn from any order worth 100$ cdn or up. This happens to work perfectly with the Platinum Blaster and Perceptor set which to date has had to issue in Canada.

The coupon code is: CANADASHIP

IDW Transformers: Robots in Disguise Ending with Issue #6

Directly from the blog of Georgia Ball, the current writer for IDW Publishing's Transformers: Robots in Disguise (the cartoon tie-in of sorts) we have some sad news for the series, which has been confirmed as ending with issue #6 in December 2015. You can find out more about the decision and motivation behind this here, and snippets below.

I’ve been waiting for this question to come along so I can answer - Yes, we were not given the green light to continue the comic past six issues. I’m turning in the script for #6 tomorrow and it will be the last issue in the regular series.

There are a lot of factors that went into this:

1. Almost all comics are pitched in short sets even if they are solicited as ongoing.

[...]

2. Comics are sold to retailers, not fans.

[...]

3. It was not digital-first.

[...]

All of that said, the reviews were good and the fan response couldn’t have made me happier. Priscilla did a brilliant job and made everything easy. Hasbro LOVED this book and it’s possible more of it could come out in the future but I can’t give out any details! Thank you all so much for posting about the comic, sending me questions and letting me get to know you.
