According to this article from the LA Times, the trio of writers who were previously in-talks to write Transformers 2, the sequel to this summer's blockbuster Transformers movie, have now signed on for the second film, a deal that could reportedly pay out more than 8 million dollars.

Also interesting to note that the article mentions the fact that director Michael Bay has already begun 'pooling together' digital pre-visualisations of Transformers that didn't make it into the first film, allowing the production of the film to continue in case of any work stoppage due to impending strikes in Hollywood.

Read the entire article by clicking here.

Just the same, the three writers are already pooling their ideas to nail down the detailed story line while Bay has begun pulling together some digital pre-visualization robot designs that didn't make it into the first film. An added benefit lost on no one is that with a CGI-heavy film like this, the preliminary work provides an effective cushion if the writers (or directors and actors next summer) do strike -- effects crews can work ahead and compile action sequences during any stoppage.

Yesterday saw the release of the Transformers score by Steve Jablonsky in retail stores. Unfortunately, there have been reports coming in that some stores have not received it, with no sightings at all in Canada. Chris Knight, the driving force behind the release, has commented on the situation in his blog:

Long story short: some got it, some didn't and why oh why did Canada not apparently get it at all??? Phone calls will be going out tomorrow to inquire about this.

Slash Film was at the set of the new Indiana Jones movie, which stars Harrison Ford and Shia LaBeouf, who is best known for playing Sam Witwicky in the latest Transformers movie.

While on the set, the reporters from the movie site got the chance to talk to director/producer Steven Spielberg. While their article is mostly about the fourth Indiana Jones movie, Steven Spielberg dropped a snippet surrounding the sequel to the record-breaking Michael Bay Transformers movie. The following is taken directly from the article.

"The "story" for Transformers 2 will be finalized in a couple weeks, and if the writers guild strike doesn't happen in November, they will be able to go into production on "number 2" pretty quickly".

Simon Furman has been very busy indeed! Updating his Blog once again, this time in reference to the UK Transformers Magazine, that is to be released on Thursday October 11th:

Movie Devastator comes under the spotlight in a new 10-page comic strip, written by me and drawn by Don. Is he as dumb as his G1 counterpart? Well, yes. But he’s also equally as brutal and destructive, and when he finds himself with no easy prey to crush, watch out! As always with these solo but interlinked stories, there are guest appearances aplenty from other characters from the new TF-movie. Plus, more strip, a profile for Blackout and a titanic, expanded head-to-head smackdown between Optimus Prime and Megatron! Oh, and free pin badges! What more could you ask for.

Also on Furman's Blog is a picture of the Magazine's Cover, so you know what to keep your eyes on the look out for.

October Photo-Contest info:

Theme: Epic!

Your challenge this month my fellow Seibertronians is to depict your Transformers in the very real and brutal war they've fought throughout time. Their war's stretched from the inner chambers of Cybertron to our our own planet and beyond! Alien worlds have crumbled by their destruction. Show us the battles, the aftermath, the casualties, the winners...

Show us war.

Extra comments: Extra attention to clearity of photo (how well we can tell who's fighting who), set up, and scenery will be taken.

Maximum amount of Transformers has been risen to 15 for this contest, but having said that, please be aware that your photo should be clear and easily deciphered. If we have to search around to figure out what's going on, that's a problem.

This contest is meant to truly challenge you all so take special care in you're ideas and how you set up your shots.

As this theme is very broad, it's very easy to have similar photos; Uniqueness and creativity is encouraged.

This Contest starts October 14.
Contest will be open for actual entries on OCT 21-27.
There will be a one week deliberation for judging and results will be announced on 3rd of November.

Winners will receive Custom Signatures by our very own Sunstar with their winning entries.

Please go to this thread to submit any and all suggestions for further contests:

Chris Ryall Responds To Beast Wars Profiles Criticisms

The errors were scathing to some. To others they put it aside, and chalked it up as an IDW rush job with so much happening on the TF comics front lately.

Chris Ryall has heard the complaints, the comments, and the criticisms and he calmly replies, taking the blame for the book upon his shoulders, and promising better things:

"Hey, everyone--

In the time we've been doing Transformers comics, there have been highs and lows for the fans, I know. As there's going to be on anything -- some projects work better than others, for various reasons.

This one seems to be ranking somewhere near the first issue of the TF Animated Series for most of you, from the responses I've seen.

Which sucks all around--the last thing we want to do is release product that doesn't work for you. Especially since this particular book took so long to finally arrive. And because so many artists and colorists labored over it. And because Simon and Ben Yee did the same, and then waited patiently for the book to finally be assembled and released.

So for the person who just e-mailed me very angry and said "once again, IDW screws its fans," well, that's hardly true and hardly a sound approach to business, I would think. And nothing we would ever set out to do.

So what happened?

That's a good question. But there's really no need for me to make excuses or air any beasty-smelling laundry, so I'll just say that the book is, like everything we publish, ultimately my responsibility. This book was one that sort of slipped through the crack while I was dealing with an editorial shift, and it went out with some errors. Book Two was completed during this same period. But Andrew is here as the TF Editor now, and is extremely competent and he and I will do what we can to ensure the rest of the books are produced as they should be. As many errors are able to be corrected in the collected version will be fixed, too.

I know that this book was a bit of a disappointment for fans who waited so long. Transition with art teams or editorial teams can cause hiccups that are evidenced in the finished product, but certainly not on purpose.

So know that I share your pain on this--maybe moreso, since so many people have shared their pain with me--but also know that putting out something you don't love is never our intent. We'll get 'em next time."


You can see the original IDW Forum thread here.

While they cannot undo what has been done, and there are no promises made that things will be corrected in the Trade Paperback release, we do know that this will be a focus for them to get the remaining issues right.
