Mairghread Scott has just posted a new entry on her blog which details a contest to get a free signed copy of Wingblade #1. The blog entry, fully posted below, also gives us her signing schedule at Emerald City Comiccon this week-end.

For those interested, you can check out a preview to Wingblade 1 right here.

Hello Everyone!

windblade 1Transformers Windblade #1 – Combiner Wars Part 1 is out this Wednesday, March 25th! This is Part 1 of Combiner Wars and immediately follows last week’s Transformers #39 Combiner Wars: Opening Salvo! You will want to follow both series to get the whole story of this massive crossover event. To help with that, here’s the reading order:

Transformers #39 – Combiner Wars: Opening Salvo – Available Now
Transformers Windblade #1 – Combiner Wars Part 1 – Available Now
Transformers #40 – Combiner Wars Part 2 – Available in April
Transformers Windblade #2 – Combiner Wars Part 3 – Available in April

I am also doing a Windblade # 1 giveaway contest. To enter, tweet or tumble a picture of either you with your copy of Windblade #1 (physical or digital) or a picture of your Transformers toys reading Windblade #1, or both of you together (clearly the best option) and include the tag #WindbladeReturns. The deadline for submissions is April 8th. I’ll randomly pick three submissions and the winners will get a signed copy of Transformers Windblade #1 – Combiner Wars Part 1 in the mail.

In other news…

Emerald City Comic Con is this weekend and I’ll be there mostly to hang out and have fun but I am doing a few signings listed below. As always, if you see me at the show I’m happy to chat and sign some books. Here’s the info for my signings:

More Worlds – More Problems! After the events of Combiner Wars, Windblade and Starscream race to recruit the lost Cybertronian colonies to the Council of Worlds – but which of them will control the fate of Cybertron?

Welcome to last the last 9 months when IDW has repeatedly said MTMTE is not involved.

Yup, looks like they dumped all relevant characters onto a shuttle for cybertron, and have sailed on looking for Thunderclash none the wiser

Ah, don't mind him. He's just grumpy coz he keeps saying he's done being a part of the fandom because some fans don't like Alpha Bravo and Offroad, (even though he keeps forgetting about the rst of that do like them) but can't quite quit us. Keeps coming back; it's an on-again-off-again relationship.

those relationships are the worse.

Even though I'm a fan of Alpha Bravo (its such a cool mold!) I have to admit that I will replace him with Slingshot (or Quickshot or whatever). I just like the look of all the jets. However, I absolutely love offload so I don't think Wildrider is going to replace him just yet. Still getting him though.

just read it. Wow. pretty cool set up. I kinda like how religion is being handled in it. My only concern is that this religious viewpoint doesn't try to establish itself as the one true religion or something. Or the "TRUE" origin of the transformers. That happens sometimes. I like the different myths and stuff. I don't want to see too much Aligned in my IDWG1.

Primus is already in IDW, and there was the thirteen primes

After reading opening salvo I gotta say that this line of comics is gonna be REALLY cool. I love how they seem to take a lot of elements from other transformers series and connect them together here....sort of like they're COMBINING them. LOL sorry had to do it.

I mean rattrap is here (beast wars)
Starscream is in his Armada form (or at least closer to it)
Story elements from Re-Generation One can be seen here or there.

It's super cool. I also love seeing Optimus's interactions with Starscream as the "leader" of Cybertron. Kind of like the relationship Thor has with Loki. I will trust you for now, but step out of line and you will be dead SO fast. LOL

I can't wait to see where this series goes.

I'm with you on this. I think it's fantastic that they're drawing on some of that as a means to world-build their universe while using concepts that can pretty cleanly be re-used. The stuff with Caminus is so far very smart, and makes a ton of sense. Very interested to see where it keeps going!

Then again, the Aligned Universe (and the rest of them) was just created in MTMTE 38 when Perceptor disengaged the paradox locks, but maybe the 13 Primes thing predates that schism and is put in here to let us assume that the creation myth, or at least parts of it, may be "universal" throughout alternate realities/dimensions.

Actually, come to think of it, we're not supposed to think about it that hard. :lol:

I'm sorry, I really am, but the idea of a helicopter keeping up with a team of jets is just ridiculous. I just can't comprehend how the editors have let this be, or how Hasbro has signed off on it. :BANG_HEAD:


sooo you never complained about Blades leaving the entire Protectobots behind, the stunticons speeding off and leaving motormaster in the dust, blast off always arriving first to every battle scene, snaptrap paddling along whilst the other seacons finish the fight before he's even gotten halfway....

you sir are illogical


or how about the trainbots being limited to how they get anywhere

Well I do see your point (and this isn't an argument for or against the existence of Alpha Bravo) at the end of the day its about minimum velocity rather than maximum. Could the other jets fly slow enough to fly with Alpha Bravo? Probably. Could Blades stay in formation with the Protectobots and stay in flight? Absolutely. Would the other Stunticons stay with Motormaster rather than driving ahead of him? DEFINITELY! (Would you want someone that mean to be behind you?) With Blast Off you have a point but then he's a shuttle and that's already pretty silly when you think about it. As for Snaptrap again you are correct but his bio does list him as being quite slow and that he's never needed his speed to begin with. Just because they CAN go much faster than their teammates doesn't mean they always do.

As for the trainbots....eh I agree but I dunno, maybe they deploy wheels when they're off the tracks or something?

I think it's funny that, paradoxically, Optimus is hamstrung by his own values. He's beholden to the will of the people and their choices, but they chose Starscream who is ever duplicitous and self-serving. Yet he can't intervene and choose who gains power, or he'd be elevating his will over everyone else. And Starscream knows it.

Can we stop with the Alpha Bravo crap already? He was never an original Aerialbot. Hasbro admitted he was a mistake (kind of) when they were talking about Dragstrip and Air raid being in the wrong waves.

With the exception of Alpha Bravo not having a personality, Windblade #1 was great. The writing and art were top notch. The book made me want to buy both combiners. But in the end the book is stil a failure for using bland made up characters alongside corny creations like Hot shot and Windblade.

Ok, so in this issue he has the whole darn thing. It's even referred to as the hilt of the Star Saber (the blade, not the 'bot), meaning it couldn't just be half. There has to be something I missed, because this just isn't normal for John "Continuity" Barber.
The crystal core was split in half, one given to Bumblebee, one to Rodimus. As of Opening Salvo, we see that Optimus has placed Bumblebee's half of the crystal core back into the complete "Container".

at least on the digital version, after close inspection, it only looks like half a sphere is glowing

Where he is going to get the other half from, we can only guess. Since it's gone.

I'm a 35 year old happily married father of 2 awesome little boys. I have a job, 401k, mortgage, and a minivan. My biggest purchase last year was a cub cadet riding lawn tractor, and I was super stoked about it.
All that and I spend time on the Internet talking about toys from the '80s.

My point? Where does logic play into any of this? :D
