Battle Beasts return with comic from IDW and toys from DST

Its been quite a while since the Diamond Select Toys scooped up the Battle Beasts rights in 2009. They have released a few variations of an exclusive Crocodile Battle Beast to gain excitement and showed off some new sculpts at SDCC 2010, but thats about it. No plans or announcements had been made.

Recently, however, a countdown site went live at http://www.diamondselecttoys.com/battle-beasts.html. It has been counting down for over a month and will end tomorrow. Tomorrow also marks the beginning of C2E2.

Fortunately for us, IDW broke the news before Diamond Select’s countdown has finished. A new comic fleshing out a new story for the Battle Beasts franchise is on its way from IDW Publishing. Not only that, but they have put up a website showing off some comic art and design art for the ram-like character, Vorin. An exclusive translucent red version of Vorin will be available as a convention exclusive at C2E2. Vorin was not among the new sculpts shown at SDCC 2010.

More info after the jump!

Back in July we found out the fans won out with their demand to continue the original Transformers comic series, picking up from issue 81.

That book is being “ReGeneration One” and is being written by longtime TF scribe Simon Furman with Andrew Wildman providing artwork in his original early 90s style. IDW comics publisher Chris Ryall has tweeted a colored interior page of the book without text. Ultra Magnus makes his US debut and Optimus Prime retains his Action Master form in this direct continuation of the events in the Marvel Transformers comic #80.

IDW Infestation 2 Announced – Cthulhu Vs TMNT, D&D, Transformers, and more

IDW’s first crossover event, Infestation, was massively popular. By which I mean it sold a lot of books for the company. I’ve heard mixed reviews from fans of those other books, but I liked the Star Trek and Transformers tales enough anyway. I fully intend on buying the hardcover collection when it comes out soon.
IDW is never one to let a license opportunity go to waste, so they’re going to start Infestation 2 in January. The original book features dimension traveling zombies as the story thread holding the diverse worlds’ stories together. This volume with feature HP Lovecraft’s Old Ones. So get ready for Leonardo to cut some tentacles.
Actual story details are very slim right now, we just have the announcement from IDW. However, the creative team of Chuck Dixon and Guido Guidi have been announced for Transformers, and that book will be set in the duo’s famous “Hearts of Steel” universe. This alternate story line puts the Transformers at the dawn of the Industrial revolution and featured many popular characters a steam powered rail cars and battle ships.

Infestation 2 begins on January 25 2012 and will run weekly through April 11 2012.

SDCC 2011: IDW Comics making Transformers #81 happen in 2012

There has been a large fan initiative among the Transformers fandom to continue the original Generation One Marvel comic book that ended somewhat abruptly at issue 80. After it was announced that Larry Hama would be picking up the torch on the original Marvel GI Joe comic, Transformers fans have been clamoring the same to happen for the G1 Marvel comic. Since then, both Simon Furman and Andrew Wildman have voiced their support for such a project and that they would be more than willing to return to their roles as writer and artist, respectively.

The IDW/Hasbro comics panel just ended. Transformers fans were told at the beginning that they will want to stay for the full panel and sure enough, those who did, were treated to the announcement that Transformers #81 would be happening and the series would conclude with issue #100. Mark your calendars, folks. An internet petition actually did something.
