As reported earlier, the company known as BestToys have develloped additional sets of heads for Encore Ironhide and Ratchet. Instead of the cardboard heads provided by TomyTakara, these are sculpted heads the can fit over the roof opening in robot mode. Robot Kingdom has put pictures online of these sets used by their respective owners, to finally show an anime correct G1 Ironhide and Ratchet. You can go here to see the pictures.

Shane McCarthy's Blog Update- All Hail Megatron #4

Here's Shane McCarthy, writer on IDW's all new and somewhat controversial new series "ALL HAIL MEGATRON" writing on his blog 'SMAcTALK most recently about All Hail Megatron #4 and some other things like the new Autobot character 'Drift'...

"When I first conceived the initial idea for All Hail Megatron I had a faint glimmer of an image in my head for a cover design; one that dripped of sorrow, solitude and defeat. I handed this rudimentary idea to Trevor and he came back with what I feel is the best cover design he’s done yet. Gut wrenching in its simplicity and something that will stand out on any shelf. The guy is frustratingly talented.

The owner of this particular silhouette features heavily in the issue and is particularly crushed by the events of AHM. I feel sorry for the big lug.


Man that bot looks totally down. Can things get worse than what we saw in issue #1? Apparently.

'All Hail Megatron' cover for #4

For those who can't make Botcon, SDCC is usually a pretty crucial convention.

Why you may ask? Well, at Botcon they make us promise to not take pictures, basically, so they can use the same slides to impress others at this other future big convention we have gotten to know as SDCC.

So now those who have just been imagining what things like 25th Anniversary G1 Hound with Ravage look like, and that awesome G1 Cyclonus with Nightstick, well you can wonder no more.

Here are the highlights, you can skip them and just check out the Tformers gallery if you would like.

Animated
-Animated Sentinel Prime, Elite Guard Bbee, Ultra Magnus, and Swoop
-Animated Activator Cliffjumper new head sculpt!
-Animated Blurr
-Animated Swindle
-Animated Shockwave and Longarm
-Leader Megatron 'Shadow Blade' Repaint- Purple/black deco

Universe
-25th G1 Optimus Prime Re-Issue Exclusive
-Classics Ironhide, Sideswipe, Robot Heroes, Legends, and Exclusives
All pics seen previously, but in the Tformers gallery.

-Animated Season 3 NOT green lit, but content development underway. More Wreck Gar!
-Death's Head TF? Like idea, but nothing yet

-More instruments on way for Animated Soundwave- hinted at
-Universe Unicron is TRU exclusive, and not supposed to have any remolding

BigBadToyStore.com now has Pre-orders up for the San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) Nemesis Prime at a price of $47.99.

This is a limited release, but how limited we do not know. Hasbrotoyshop.com will be taking orders for what is left over on Monday, but if you want to be sure to get yours, maybe you want to set up a pre-order with BBTS. Past history has shown us that exclusives live up to their name a very high percentage of the time.

The retail price for Nemesis Prime at SDCC is $24.99.

No word on any Titanium Skywarp pre-order, yet. His retail price at SDCC is $19.99.

IDW News From SDCC (Spotlight Cosmos!)

Seibertron.com member Skalor is reporting with the goods from the IDW Publishing Panel at the San Diego Comic Convention. Here's what he had to share:

After a not so revealing IDW panel today at SDCC, there were only a few new tidbits of upcoming releases by IDW. They confirmed that a Spotlight Cosmos is in the works, and they talked about the upcoming Spotlight Blurr a little. They said to expect Blurr as you've never seen him before (Pre-Great War on Cybertron, not annoying). Other upcoming titles discussed were Maximum Dinobots, Animated, Destiny (Movie Prequel), and "the 13," but not really any content. One thing said about the Animated issues was that Oil Slick, originally slated to be a toy only character, will be brought to life in the Comics. There was some new artwork that was showed from the Blurr issue and the upcoming All Hail Megatron issues (which look great...Ravage!!!!!!) Another tidbit revealed was the creation of a new character: Drift. He's designed really well and is modeled after a "Japanese drift-race car." The real cool news behind this is that they said Drift will be made into a toy by Hasbro. Lots of good stuff coming, lots to look forward to!


But that's not all. Seibertron.com has found a IDW Panel Q&A with writers that are at the convention along with Writer Simon Furman, who is not at the SDCC. This information confirms what was reported above by Skalor. You can find the Q&A here at Newsarama.com.
