Just in from Seibertron's own Podfather Scotty P is news that IDW's Transformers The Last Stand of the Wreckers will be officially released in Japanese via Amazon on July 31st.

Scott states "No cover yet but the official releases of IDW Transformers comics in Japanese continue with a backtrack (last book out was Chaos, wrapping up the Costa/"Ongoing" era) to Last Stand of the Wreckers on 7/31. Found this on Amazon Japan in my recommended stuff, probably from buying the book with "Chaos Theory" and "Space Opera" a while back."

Scott went ahead and ran the description through a translator for us:

"Translation by Hiroto Ishikawa
Cover art (not available yet) by Tajima Masa
75 pages of extras including "Bullets" and "Zero Point""

For any completists still waiting for the Latin, Pig Latin, and the Esperanto versions, our day shall come, however, for those fans waiting for a version in Japanese you won't be waiting much longer. It's never a bad time to reminisce about some of the best stories to come out of the entire IDW run. Pull out your old copies and take a read then hop back here and share some thoughts on this amazing series.

Wow, I can't believe I didn't even remember this. I mean, I found out about it like 3 or 4 months ago, and me not knowing much about the comics, thought it wasn't news, just a regular thing. The more you know I guess

As previously reported on our site the Last Stand of the Wreckers is coming to Japanese audiences, and now listed on Amazon is the actual cover for the Japanese release of Last Stand of the Wreckers by artist Tadashi Tajima.

The item is currently listed at $3,456Y and is expected to ship July 31st.

Translated from the Amazon entry:
Image
"Let's go to hell, Wreckers!


In the midst of the decepticons' great invasion, The Autobot's Prison Galas 9 fell into the hands of the enemy.
Three years later, in order to recapture the unresponsive Garras 9, The Autobot Command decided to launch a special forces "Wreckers".
Springer, who leads the Lakers, will call up four refills.
So, springer, percepter, top spin, twin twist, cup...,
And the 9+1 Wreckers, plus four recruits, Pyro, Rotarstorm, Gazzle, Iron Fist, and The Belliti of the Pushers, headed for The Garras 9, which turned into a den of the enemy.
It does not know even if it becomes a journey of the death beginning which does not return.
A classic miniseries depicting the battle to death of the Wreckers full of glory and tragedy!

Short stories "Bullet", "Zero Point", and other 75-page related materials

Greetings and happy Saturday Seibertronians! We have an interesting bit of news thanks to our own captain of the TwinCast RodPod ScottyP who just received his copy of the Japanese edition of IDW's Transformers The Last Stand of the Wreckers.
Per Scotty:
"Inside back cover reveals MTMTE (More Than Meets The Eye) and RiD (Robots In Disguise) also getting an official release there on 9/2. Issue breakdown is the same as the US trade paperbacks with Death of Optimus Prime included with MTMTE v1."
