IDW Publishing just posted some major news on their Facebook page. In 2020, we will get a crossover comic of Transformers vs The Terminator. The singularity in the title is rather interesting although it may just refer to the franchise using the first movie's title. We don,t know if it's a series or just one book, which it might be since it has a $4.99 cover price, meaning it would be longer than a regular monthly comic. The cover has the iconic terminator skull under a shattering Optimus Prime head.

Let us know what you think!

Interesting, but call me when a Transformers vs Alien crossover/toyline happens ... or was that Bayverse :twisted:

To be fair, 52Toys already has my back.

I feel like this is a crossover where the Bayverse would fit swimmingly, or at least the designs would.

I am excited for this, bring it on!

Transformers vs Aliens is ALL I’ve ever wanted to see. It’s totally possible, I mean there’s been a lot of crossovers happening recently; ie Star Trek, Ghostbusters. Now this, let’s hope there’s even more coming.

Who doesn’t want to see a xenomorph born from a Cybertronian?

I always wondered how I would know it’s time to leave the fandom for good and not just take a break.


Now I know.

That ish dude will be missed.

So what are we talking about here? Transformers sized Terminators? Terminators cosplaying as Transformers Pretenders style? I'd think people sized Terminators would just get squished like bugs. This is like playground arguments to the stupidest degree.

1st kid: "Who'd win in a fight, Optimus Prime or the Terminator?"

2nd kid: "Freddy Krueger!"

Got curious and fished up a little more info.

IDW wrote:SAN DIEGO, CA (December 17, 2019) – IDW Publishing (OTC: IDWM) is proud to announce the March 2020 launch of TRANSFORMERS VS. THE TERMINATOR, a four-issue monthly series in partnership with Dark Horse Comics that pits the deadly race of futuristic cyborgs against the sentient, converting robots from Cybertron.

TRANSFORMERS VS. THE TERMINATOR brings together three longtime TRANSFORMERS contributors (writers David Mariotte and John Barber, and artist Alex Milne) with writer Tom Waltz (fresh off his celebrated 100-issue Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles run) for an epic crossover that revisits the concepts of alien invasion and time-traveling resistance fighters… but twists them in unexpected ways!

“I still remember the visceral thrill and terror of my first viewing of THE TERMINATOR, and while I’ve seen it a hundred times since then, it still gets my pulse running,” says John Barber, co-writer and IDW Editor-in-Chief. “I’ve worked on TRANSFORMERS a lot over the years, and the opportunity to combine these two mechanistic universes together to see who comes out on top (while working alongside Tom, David, and my old collaborator Alex, no less) —well, it’s way too exciting a chance to pass up.”

“TRANSFORMERS was a large part of my childhood; I was captivated, wanting to see how Optimus Prime would foil the plans of Megatron,” says artist Alex Milne. “Later, I came across THETERMINATOR and was amazed by the idea of a robot pretending to be a human, sent back in time to hunt down a specific target. Now, as an adult, I’m very pleased to lend my talents to a project which sees these sci-fi icons brought together!”

TRANSFORMERS VS. THE TERMINATOR #1 will be available with multiple cover variants for retailers and fans to enjoy, including Cover A by Gavin Fullerton (Samurai Jack: Lost Worlds, Bags), Cover B by series artist Alex Milne, and two Retailer Incentive editions by comic book sensations Freddie E. Williams II (Batman/TMNT) and Francesco Francavilla (Star Wars Adventures), respectively.

They could make this a fairly deep story if Skynet appeals to Optimus's core belief that, "Freedom is the right of all sentient beings." After all, Skynet is, superficially at least, a much more familiar form of life than humans are, and everything it did was to secure its own survival.

If this was the case, you could totally draw parallels between Skynet’s story with Humans to Cybertronians with the Quintessons.

The Terminator as a comic book series hasn't much success with crossovers. If wasn't for Frank Miller and Walter Simonson writing and drawing respectfully I wouldn't even remember that Robocop vs. The Terminator ever happened and honestly IMHO it wasn't either man's best work.

Aliens vs. Predator vs. The Terminator other the title there was not much else to be remembered by this dud.

Now I haven't read either The Transformers/Star Trek: TAS and Transformers/Ghostbusters series but I've heard some good things about the first and a LOT of great things about the second. Maybe IDW and Dark Horse can do a hat trick and go 3 straight good/great crossovers with the Transformers which would be ironic since Hasbro can't get them to work in crossovers with their own properties like: The Go-Bots, G.I. Joe, M.A.S.K., ROM, The Micronauts, The Visionaries, Action Man, Jem and the Holograms, D&D, Magic: The Gathering, My Little Pony, and the rest but have better success with crossovers with properties that they don't own.
