Once again, IDW has updated their Art Du Jour! Section. They updated the section with a new colored page drawn especially for the Transformers: Beast Wars Sourcebook #1. Here is what IDW has to say about the image:

"Simon Furman (Transformers: Beast Wars: The Gathering) and Ben Yee (consultant on the Beast Wars TV series) team up to present an all-encompassing, unifying resource book highlighting the characters, worlds and technology from all generations and incarnations of BEAST WARS. From AIR HAMMER to WOLFANG and beyond, and featuring all-new art from a host of the greatest TRANSFORMERS artists like Don Figueroa, Nick Roche, Rob Ruffolo, and many more, this is the series everyone's been clamoring for! This special series will be comprised of three 48-page, ad-free editions."

Now head over to IDW's Art Du Jour! Section to check it out now.

Apache!

The pages still look a bit bland, but I guess that lets you focus on the figures and bio and all that Jazz!

So, will Apache be appearing alongside B'Boom anywhere? Because that might prove a bit awkward, since they look exactly the same, color and all.

He will only be a few pages away, unless these books are not going to be done in Alphabetical order...

Well, I figured that, but I meant more along the lines of The Ascending. I mean, The Pack is/are going to show up, right? Either way, I love the design for B'Boom/Apache. One of my favorite toys as a kid.

OK, so I know now who to add to the "Fricassee" list if these things end up late again...

hmm interesting. i wonder if they'll go for the Apache name or the B'boom name for one character, or will they be different characters altogether?

the Apache name might be used since in interviews the writer & producers of the Ascending comic have expressed their decision to use the Japanese names for the Maximals in the new comic. hmm... :-?

They seems to have both B'Boom and Apache as different characters, despite them being identical toys. I like it.

I will buy these, and then they can publish MTMTE books for Energon, G2, Rid, and Cybertron. I'd buy them all.

Well like it or not, they are two separate characters. I personally was hoping for maybe a bit more artistic license to differentiate the two characters, but unlike G1 toys, which were basic enough looking to get an extra character or two out of the same mold, Beast Wars figures were detailed enough to make it a bit harder They got a couple of good ones out there, but without a color change it is a bit tougher to accept.

But still, two different characters so hopefully we'll see how they're handled. It doesn't really bother me.

Maybe the protoform-formatting computer only has a limited number ideas, and after a while it starts to repeat itself.

i don't think there's anything wrong with this with good writing skills this shouldn't be a problem. they'll probably kill one off anyway

It would have been nice if they added his third form.

Also I like that they used "Apache" instead of "B-Boom" I always hated that name.

Not that it matters but I figure share, in my collective, this figure is Primal's older brother who helped train the Maximal's who became Lio, Big, and Beast Convoy

See Hasbro, this is what when happens when repaints and generic rip offs, because your to lazy to do even that much, bite you on the ass!

I think it's more that Hasbro and Takara depicted them as different characters, so when IDW made up bios, they made one for each.

It's still a fancy way of saying we're going to be wasting pages.
