In yet more news about the new crossover mini-series from IDW Publishing set in the Hasbroverse, we have a small three-page preview for the upcoming Transformers vs The Visionaries #1 - due out in both digital and print release early January 2018 - featuring Merklynn and his vision for New Prysmos, plus the introduction of some of the major players on both sides: Ironhide, Wheeljack, Kup and Breakdown (with typo) on the Cybertronians, and Virulina, Leoric, Cindarr and Witterquick on the Visionaries side.

Check it all out below, mirrored from the iTunes page, and let us know if you'll be picking this new series up come the new year!

Cybertron has been invaded. The Transformers encounter unwelcome guests at the heart of Cybertron—and they may not have their hosts’ best interests at heart. Refugees from another world, the Visionaries' startling magical abilities could make them powerful allies... or dangerous enemies.

I have no attachment to visionaries but I color me intrigued!

This is true. However, I wasn't lamenting the usual. The preview above just seems a bit... boring? This isn't my usual "social commentary" spiel, I'm just speaking stylistically.

Anyone else?

It's literally one page.

There are 4 pages, with 2 of them showing story? If I haven't seen it, it's new to me!

It’s cool that velocitron breakdown actually has his name now. Every other time he has appeared he hasn’t ever said his name, so it’s cool that they are finally confirming that his name is breakdown.

Is this Breakdown the IDW version of Prime Breakdown?

Yep. He's been appearing in TAAO for the last year or so.

Well, that's something nice in all of this mess, at least. Time to visit TFWiki...

ooh that art does not look good.

seems like a case of ye old Transformes curse where when the humans look good the bots look awfull and vice versa.

havent seen anything this off since Windblade vol 2/TAAO.

IMO its a bad idea to have prysmos be a part of cybertron too. it justs seems too limiting or something. the notion of an entire solar system where TF cant go is alot more intriguing than somewhere outside new iacon where nobody bloody goes anyway.

as ripley would say "just nuke the site from orbit".

:D

but hey im sure some love this style so each to their own. but i dont see this one lasting beyond the mini if they dont expand it greatly.

Yeah I like the concept of multiple Breakdowns, Prowls etc..

With some more news in the March 2018 solicitations seem here about the soon-to-begin crossover mini-series from IDW Publishing, featuring two more Hasbro properties clashing (but not really) with each other (but also in-fighting), we have the retailer incentive cover for Transformers vs The Visionaries #2, brought to us once more by artist Brendan Cahill, and coloured by Lauren Bennett!

The cover, mirrored below in both lineart and full colour, shows Virulina - the apparently new Darkling leader - and Ironhide, from the Cybertronian side of things, in a much different pose and setting than the cover for the first issue. Check it out!

Keeping up the marketing momentum, IDW Publishing have directly posted a preview for the upcoming first issue of their latest Hasbro universe crossover series, helmed by Magdalene Visaggio and Fico Ossio: Transformers vs The Visionaries #1!

We don't get too much more than what we first saw in the iTunes preview, posted here, but we do have an extra couple of pages added to the opening, and some additional characters introduced next to Merklynn, and alongside old Cybertronians Kup and Ironhide. Check it out below!

Cybertron has been invaded. The Transformers encounter unwelcome guests at the heart of Cybertron—and they may not have their hosts’ best interests at heart. Refugees from another world, the Visionaries' startling magical abilities could make them powerful allies... or dangerous enemies.

How come IDW goes out of their way to portray most organics as stupid, smug bastards?

More race and gender baiting SJW nonsense from IDW, quickly going the way of Marvel. I'm sorry but Leoric is a white guy (along with Matt Trakker from MASK). These characters look NOTHING like Visionaries at all, but rather an obvious SJW political vehicle, for the white/man shaming of much loved franchises of the past. There is nothing wrong with being white. If they want ethnic minority characters, make NEW characters and NEW stories. The Visionaries are white male characters in fantasy knight armor. Deal with it. SJWs are destroying everything I hold dear at the moment. I'm boycotting all IDW publications from now on, until they decide to get rid of the identity politics. This is not Visionaries and it's not Transformers. It's sickening, forced "diversity" and no longer fun.

As someone who didn’t watch Visionaries, I’m curious, what part of Leoric’s character requires him to be a white man?
