Thanks to a few new posts to IDW's Twitter we have two new Constructicon profiles for you to enjoy. This round gives us the master at the turn tables and the chemistry lab, the Mixmaster, and the man with the plan, the chief engineer who the rest of the team fears, Scrapper! These profile cards are very much in the vein of the classic tech spec file cards that came with all the G1 bots that gave each character a distinct personality and power rating. These are definitely a fun lead up to the Transformers: Galaxies series debuting next month. Galaxies is written by Tyler Bleszinski with art duties handled by longtime Transformers artist Livio Ramondelli.

Enjoy the views and be sure to share your favorite Constructicon and Devastator memories with us in the forum. As always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

Thanks to Twitter posts from IDW, series writer Tyler Bleszinski, and series artist Livio Ramondelli we have the tech spec profiles for all the new IDW Constructicons! These give some awesome flavor and backstory to these great characters who have been staples of the franchise for 35 years. Enjoy reading up on the bot with the plan Scrapper, the new and insecure (yet utterly valuable) Scavenger, the lofty Hook, stalwart and powerful Long Haul, the chemical genius Mixmaster, and the probably insane Bonecrusher.

The first issue of Transformers: Galaxies: Constructicons Rising is scheduled to ship this month! Be sure to pre-order your issue as soon as possible at your local comic shop. Pre-ordering is a huge help to the title and ensures you'll get your copy as soon as possible. You can find your local comic shop by going to comicshoplocator.com.

This page shows everything I hate about Livio Ramondelli. It's not the art style, it's the terrible use of storytelling. You either get a very far away shot or a shot that's way too up close and hat last panel gives you an angle of their back, filled in shadow, instead of their front. While there is no way to confirm, this really feels to me like this approach is to draw as little as possible. I get doing shortcuts here and there but this is a page full of them and it really hurts the reading experience when the whole point of a comic is the added visuals to the storytelling.

Agreed. Visual narrative is my thing and his is always.. off, from what it should be. I struggled to even finish the Primacy Trilogy because of it.

I really enjoy his sense of scale and readily find a sense of motion in the work. I can see Wheeljack snapping back with that glare or on page 3's bottom panel it feels like those big vehicles are really coming at me. His work in Redemption with the Mad Max homage story was super awesome to me with the action scenes flowing at a cinematic-like pace in my head. There's a panel in Salvation (I think) with Typticon ravaging Iacon some distance away with Swoop or Starscream, I forget, flying from the foreground in that direction and it's just :x

Taste in art is subjective of course, but personally I like his style for the stories he gets put on.

Just in from Apple books preview is a three page preview for IDW's Transformers issue #12! Here we get some insight to this incarnation of fan favorite Nautica, both from her internal narrative and an interaction with Starscream. Here's the description from Apple:

Transformers #12
Brian Ruckley & Sara Pitre-Durocher

Pre-Order
Expected Sep 18, 2019
$3.99
"Out in the vast galaxy, Cybertronian explorers encounter all manner of beings—some friendly and some in stern opposition to Cybertronian expansion. When relations start to crumble and violence is threatened, there’s only one bot to turn to—Nautica, head of xeno-relations."

Are you one of the Nauticons out there who are excited to see her return? Are you a fan of the new line art by artist Sara Pitre-Durocher? Enjoy the preview and let us know your thoughts in the forum, and as always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

Dare I say things are finally getting more interesting?

I'm just disappointed by the fact that the Sentinel prime showing up in 10 and wanting to bust some heads is still largely ignored.

i am all down for Nautica considering she is my favorite girl, but I want some more plot too. Hopefully her story is a good one

Thanks to IDW artist Andrew Griffith, we have a glimpse at one of the alternate covers for the upcoming IDW Transformers #12. The cover, which was done by Griffith, features Nautica in her favorite element: the deep sea, and very clearly enjoying herself.

Issue 12 of the IDW Transformers ongoing is set to be released within the next 2 weeks, and will star Nautica, marking her as another IDW 2005 original character that crosses over and plays some sort of major role in the new series.

You can check out the cover by Griffith below, and let us know what you think of it in the comments section below!
