Female Transformers Star in Hasbro’s SDCC Exclusive Set

Hasbro
Hasbro

Though we already knew Hasbro would be offering an early variant box set of its massive Devastator box set at San Diego Comic-Con this year, the company still had one more Transformers exclusive up its sleeve. Announced this week (via IGN), a special box set of the Transformer Universe's most bad-ass female robots in disguise will be up for sale at SDCC as well. The set will feature Arcee, Chromia and Windblade in all new paint apps based on their appearances in the upcoming Combiner Hunters storyline in IDW's Transformers line.

Though all three of these characters have been released in the flagship Generations line at Hasbro, this new set offers another chance for collectors to expand the ever-growing roster of robots in the Transformers line. It's also another great way for Hasbro to continue diversifying the Transformers line, which has always been traditionally male robot heavy.

The Transformed Man, Act 8: Under Cold Blue Stars

Transformers; More Than Meets The Eye vol. 4

I've never liked the Transformers. The franchise didn't get its hooks into me as a kid, and while I've tried to give it a shot as an adult, it never really clicked. But now, with a recommendation from almost everyone I know and a well-timed Humble Bundle sale that left me with three years worth (and counting) of IDW's More Than Meets The Eye and Robots In Disguise comics, I'm going on a quest to see if these comics can turn me from someone who has never cared at all about Optimus Prime into someone who uses words like "Cybertron" and "alt-mode" with alarming regularity. And Primus help me, it's working.

This week, things get way too real and I catch a whole lot of feelings about these stupid robots.

Robert Kirkman Joins the Writers’ Room for ‘Transformers’ Movie Franchise

Paramount
Paramount

A couple of months ago, we learned that Paramount, along with producers Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg, hired Akiva Goldsman to head up a new Transformers brain trust, giving Goldsman creative control over the future of the franchise. Goldsman has just put together the writers' room for the upcoming sequels and spinoffs, and it’s…interesting.

According to Deadline, Goldsman has wrangled The Walking Dead creator and Image Comics partner Robert Kirkman, Iron Man writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, Pacific Rim 2 writer Zak Penn and Jeff Pinkner, who’s written for Lost and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. That’s a bit of a mixed bag, but each writer has one thing in common (aside from being your average white dude): they’re all versed in large scale sci-fi.

The Decepticobranomicon: Tom Scioli On ‘Transformers vs. GI Joe,’ Part Two

Transformers vs. GI Joe, IDW

To say that Tom Scioli and John Barber‘s Transformers vs. GI Joe is an unusual comic is underselling things quite a bit. On paper, it’s a natural fit, an ongoing series that follows in the footsteps of earlier books that have combined the two toy lines into one massive interplanetary battle. In practice, though, it’s something a lot bigger, a comic that almost assaults the reader by cramming in as much big, wild stuff as it possibly can — a toy comic so weird, and so great, that it almost feels like it shouldn’t exist.

With the book's second storyline well under way, throwing in everything from vikings to old gods to Dinobots (and a new printing of his amazing American Barbarian on the way this summer), I talked to cowriter, artist and occasional ComicsAlliance guest contributor Tom Scioli about the series. Today, he talks about building a history for a universe that's even more important than our own, the two-page Free Comic Book Day story, and why his book isn't a paean to Snake Eyes.

Today, in the first part of the interview, he talks about the exhausting process of fitting it all into 20 pages, and reveals the adaptation he wrote for a Transformers vs. GI Joe movie that does not actually exist.
