Simon Furman has once again updated his Blog, this time with information pertaining to the upcoming IDW Publishing series "Revelation".

Furman follows on some earlier news reports concerning the Revelations series.

Be warned that like our earlier stories that Furman's information does contain slight spoilers.

The news is out: the next main arc in the IDW/TF-verse series will indeed (as previously reported) be Revelation, but instead of the usual 6-issue format it’ll play out over four interconnected Spotlights (Cyclonus, Hardhead, Doubledealer and Sideswipe). Expect major plotlines to be resolved as the last of the -ions (for the foreseeable) brings the Dead Universe storyline (that’s been bubbling under ever since Spotlight: Nightbeat) to a suitably shattering conclusion.

Furman goes on to mention that he will be continuing his often spoilerific "Script Wraps", and that the Spotlight style will not be altered in these upcoming 4 issues. The content to be found in the upcoming Revelation series will however:

fallout from Stormbringer, Spotlight Hot Rod, Spotlight Nightbeat, Spotlight Galvatron, Spotlight Arcee and more. And when I say fallout, I mean it. The lives and destinies of numerous main characters are altered forever as two universes clash explosively.

To close Furman gives us a hint about what else is to come out of the doors and minds of IDW :

Oh, and don’t think this is the end. There’s another series (no, not The 13 or All Hail Megatron) to come, one set firmly in the ‘-ion’ continuity. More on this soon! 08 is SO going to blow you away!

IDW's main man, reveals some interesting alternate covers for some of the upcoming Spotlights.

In his Blog at RyallTime, Chris reveals a couple of excellent covers by Nick Roche.





Mr. Ryall revealed in an earlier newspost here, the future of the '-ation' series will be in the form of four Spotlights of Sideswipe, Hardhead, Cyclonus, and Dealer.

It looks like Cyclonus has some history or future with a certain evil Prime, but we'll have to wait and see where all of that comes from.

British Scientists Take First Steps Towards Real Life Transformers!

UK based The Daily Mail has reported a rather interesting article on their site. According to their article, Brittish scientists have taken the first step in producing real-life, shape changing robots with Artificial Intelligence.

The experiment will cost 4.6 million brittish pounds (aprox. 8 million US Dollars/ 5.5 million Euro). Each individual robot will be about the size of a sugar cube, but like the gestalt combiners in Transformers, they can link together to form bigger robots. The idea is that these Transformers could aid in medical applications, space exploration and even search and rescue missions. It is estimated that these robots could be put to use in as little as 5 years from now.

"The robots have functionality on their own, but they can also combine together or adapt and change as the situation requires. The individual robots won't change physically, but they will adapt and evolve their functionality. Once the robots come together they will be more versatile - like a colony of cells such as those found in a jelly fish or a sponge. The different robots will co-operate to create the larger organism. In a sponge even if there is damage to some parts, the overall organism still survives. In this way the artificial robotic organisms might in theory become self-configuring, self-healing and self-optimising from both hardware and software perspectives".

IDW Publishing's Editor-in-Chief Chirs Ryall has leaked some information pertaining to upcoming Transformers comics releases over on the IDW Publishing Forums.
Be warned that there are many slight spoilers over the future of IDW's Transformers comics, without any names or plotlines being revealed.

On Page 6 Ryall discloses that Simon Furman is not leaving IDW:
Is Simon leaving us? Oh, no. I would never want to lose Simon, and he's got lots of things planned for this year and next. Will the Revelations arc be the very end of this entire storyline? Well, no.

Next up Ryall discusses the "All Hail Megatron series:
We'll likely announce details of All Hail Megatron by week's end (and show two amazing images from it. Plus I'll no doubt show more in my blog). I expect that announcement to rock things quite a bit, so it'll be fun to let the initial reaction to that settle, get the Focus On in everyone's hands.

Before going on to tease us with:
there's no mandate to focus on the movie--we'll have some nice G1, movie, and Animated comics to come, so all areas will be nicely represented.

Ryall then goes on to say that we had all be ready for the introduction of "Trevor Hutchison", someone who we cannot find by google searching.

To close Ryall then confirms in a later post that "Focus on the Decepticon's" will be available within the next fortnight.

But wait, there's more! In another IDW Forum thread Ryall discloses even more hints about the future of IDW Transformers comics:
The general direction is bad-assery. The general direction will also become more clear after we announce All Hail Megatron.

The G1 continuity will still be the most prominent of all the lines, but the movie continuity and the Animated will also be represented (with new comics, not just the screengrab books). Something for everyone.

The BW universe isn't dead at all. We'll do more.


And to close, Shane McCarthy, writer of the "All Hail Megatron" series will be joining in with Chris Ryall in an upcoming Q&A session sometime in the not too distant future.
