Transformers guru Simon Furman has updated his blog pages once again. The text below of June 20th and june 21st have been taken directly from his blog entries.

"MOVIE MURMURINGS
June 20th, 2007

A few items of possible interest concerning the (rapidly) upcoming Transformers movie. First, I’ll be reviewing the movie for Comics International (issue #203, on sale in July sometime). This is, of course, contingent on my actually seeing the movie, but the omens are good for a preview screening sometime this week. The review will go hand in hand with a feature I’ve already written for that selfsame issue of Comics International, concerning the movie itself and the evolution of Transformers in comics form (over the past twenty years or so). I’ll be publishing brief extracts from both review and feature here, in due course. Keep watching. Comics International is available from all good comic stores. Other stuff? Well, I’ve also (above and beyond the new comic stories) contributed some feature material for Titan’s new Transformers comic/magazine (click on the link below for a new promotional advertisement for the title). Issue #1 (on sale July 19th) features a profile on Optimus Prime and a head-to-head (battle profile) between Ratchet and Barricade. Issue #2 (on sale August 16th) features a Megatron profile and a Jazz/Blackout head-to-head. Oh, and if you like these, you should definitely check out the upcoming Transformers: The Movie Guide from Dorling Kindserley (yep, written by me). It features pretty much everything you need to know about the movie characters (robot and human), organizations (Sector 7, etc) and fixtures and fittings (Allspark and so on). It's out on July 4th.

MAD FOR IT!
June 21st, 2007

Madman, purveyors of Transformers DVDs and apparel down under, are set to release (on June 27) not only their Special Edition of the Transformers (animated) movie but also their Transformers The Complete Collection DVD boxset (featuring the entire G1 animated TV series on 17 discs in a special edition box). The latter release comes complete with an exclusive comic, featuring an all-new strip set between the end of Season 2 and the beginning of Transformers The Movie. Written by myself, with breathtaking art from Nick Roche, the comic harks back to both the original animated series (in style and content) and also the look and feel of the original Marvel UK comic (both Nick and I viewed it as something of a homage to that bygone age). Click on the thumbnail below for a sampler from the story. For more details of the Complete Collection and Animated Movie Special Edition, check out the Madman site here.

WHAT!? You mean he hasn't seen the movie already!? He's friggin' SIMON FURMAN, the man who's work kept the Transformers around to this very day! Not only that, but he's writing movie-based comics! How could they NOT have let him see the movie already!?

I want to see more of that exclusive comic!!!
I already bought all of Madman's G1 releases, thus will not be getting the set, only want the comic!

Im not surprised Furman hasn't seen the movie, Bay had been continuously re-cutting and re-editing it, claiming to have finished it mere hours before doing the premiere in Sydney, Furman wouldn't have had a chance to see it.
