Longtime Transformers writer Simon Furman has updated his blog page. Discussing his most recent work on comics. The following has been taken directly from his latest scribe.

"SCRIPT (W)RAP

Haven’t done one of these in a while, so here (for your delectation) is my post-script perambulations on Transformers Devastation #4 (as spoiler-free as I can make ‘em). Big, big dust up this issue, as pretty much all the Autobots (Optimus Prime included) take on Sixshot. Apart from some pretty spectacular pyrotechnics and some crunching action (not everyone gets out unscathed, I’m warning you), what makes this battle notable is that the world is watching. It’s been coming ever since Sixshot arrived on Earth and his actions in Devastation #1-3 have kind of made it inevitable, but at last the general populace of Earth gets to see giant robot vs giant robot ‘live at five.’ Trust me, nothing will ever be the same again in the IDW/TF-verse. Oh, and Hot Rod and Wheeljack find that time (of which they had plenty in issue #1) is tick, ticking away, both for themselves (due to the unwanted attentions of the Headmasters) and for poor old Ironhide (for whom matters are distinctly, um, pressing). And Hunter takes an irreversible step, forever defining his distinctly intertwined destiny with the robots in disguise. And we also (”there’s more?”, I hear you say) have a crowd-pleasing cameo (that ties in to both one of the already published Spotlights and one of the upcoming ones too) for you to savour, plus the full-blooded return of… ah, but that’d be telling. I’m that excited, I’d better go write issue #5, find out what happens next! Transformers Devastation #4 hits in December. For more details of all IDW’s upcoming Transformers releases go here.

Oooh, this is going to be good. I love Infiltration and Escalation, I haven't gotten around to reading Devastation yet. I'll see if I can wait until all of the Devastation issues come out and then read them all.

This does sound good. Similarly, I haven't seen Devastation at all yet, but my cheque just cleared today so I have temporary virtual money in the bank. Time to nip to the comic shop, methinks, I have about three months to catch up on... :grin:

He's enjoying his power over us!

PLEASE don't kill Ratchet! I don't think I can handle it again! And I'm definitely looking forward to seeing Starscream again. Looks like I really got into comics at the right time.

Furman is usually fairly subtle in his script wraps, mentioning things we coulod have more or less guessed for ourselves, but never really giving any decent info.

This is different for him, giving away a fair whack of info, and implying big things happening in Devastation 1-3.

Looking forward to it.

Do you guys think this "crowd-pleasing" cameo might be Soundwave? It's already evident Shockwave's coming in to play.

I think I remember him saying Grimlock and Shockwave won't return until Revelation, the six-parter after the Devastation six-parter.

So....Soundwave? Please let it be Soundwave!
Re: New Simon Furman Blog (280390)

My gut says either Banzaitron or Doubledealer, foreshadowing something to do with the Magnificance coming up in Revelation, but the 'fan pleasing' bit makes me think Soundwave is more likely.

Well, Soundwave has already been connected to Shockwave, and he's been stuck in his cassette mode on earth, and rediscovered around the current timeline. So....
