We reported a while back on the latest venture from Panini comics, who have acquired the translation rights for the Italian version of IDW Publishing's Transformers comics - and they start appearing at comics shops, book shops and news stands as of today! The photo below, by Macro Disturbo of Transformers Italia, show the first volume of 96 pages, containing The Death of Optimus Prime, and More Than Meets the Eye #1, #2 and #3 - priced at €8.90 ($10 USD), the first of three annual volumes for now.

The previous series, Infiltration, was never finished due to lack of sales and poor distribution/marketing, so here's hoping and nudging Italian readers to pick up the new material to ensure full coverage of the (kinda) current run of Transformers comics!

Yup, I still consider that version of Rodimus to be one of the ugliest and trying-way-too-hard-to-look-cool Transformer designs ever. I thank Hasbro/Takara that they didn't base Titans Roddy on it like they did with other toys (such as Ultra Magnus and that damn mimimus)

Which is, completely unironically; exactly why I love it. A lot of the time Transformers designs aren't made specifically to fit the character - we've seen a rise of it in the last decade or so, but most of the time it was that the toy was designed first and a character was based around it. G1 Sideswipe wasn't designed to evoke the character of the daredevil wrote of in his bio, he was designed as a cool looking robot that transformed from a Lamborghini. And then he was cast as a daredevil.

MTMTE for me kicks it out the park for character designs. Rodimus' design is edgy, and trying too hard to be cool, and absolutely screams 'PAY ATTENTION TO ME LOOK AT ME I AM THE CENTER OF ATTENTION'. Which evokes his insecurities and personality traits and hence being a very good design. Context matters, yo.



Also why are we talking about Rodimus' awesome design, for once he isn't hogging the spotlight and this is about a translation
