In addition, Jazz goes on national television, Rodimus reflects on events in the Functionist universe, Starscream risks it all to make a new ally, and Sgt. Savage is brought forward from World War II into the 1990s. Plus, the second volume of the Hasbro Heroes Sourcebook! Check all of this and more out after the break.
From Tiny Titans co-creator Art Baltazar comes a more humourous look at IDW Publishing’s Revolution crossover event, as Microspace tyrant and avid Snake Eyes fan Baron Karza plots to conquer the universe!

Issue #1’s due for release on April 5!
CBR has the five-page preview for the next installment in IDW Publishing’s Optimus Prime series, as the Autobots react to the Junkions’ betrayal and the Sharkticons’ subsequent global rampage, getting ready to strike back.

From the mind of Tom Scioli comes the adaptation of the movie based on his Transformers vs. G.I. Joe comic series! What’s that, you say? Such a movie doesn’t exist? That’s not stopping it from being adapted! Newsarama has the five-page preview for this coda to IDW Publishing’s crossover series, in what certainly promises to be one of the most bizarre comic releases ever. Check them out after the break, and then prepare yourself for the double-sized issue’s release on March 22!
The latest five-page Revolutionaries preview comes from Newsarama, as the titular team steps back for astory set decades prior and focused on Joe Colton’s Adventure Team and Soundwave!

The full preview for this year’s Transformers Annual is out courtesy of Comic Crusaders. As Optimus Prime and Pyra Magna try to resolve their differences in Cybertron’s Crystal City, the singularity that resides there leads them to discuss the early history of one person it consumed: Bumblebee.

The iBooks preview for the next issue of IDW Publishing’s Revolutionaries series has been released, giving us an untold story of Soundwave’s time on Earth during the 1980s when he encountered Joe Colton’s Adventure Team and both forces came into conflict with a legion of ancient Egyptian mummies. Although we only have one page from the actual story this time, the cast page is a bit different from the previous issues’, giving more details on the history of the Adventure Team members. In addition, the first page of the story is already a Hasbro reference galore, as we get what might just be a glimpse at a certain visionary Hasbro series and a mention of… Binaltech?! There are many mysteries afoot, and hopefully Revolutionaries #3 will shed more light on them when it’s released on March 15!
The three-page preview for the new Transformers Annual is available courtesy of iBooks, and it looks like readers are in for some “Ghost Stories.” Optimus Prime, Pyra Magna, and Starscream all converge on Crystal City, the site of Bumblebee and Shockwave’s deaths at the end of 2013-2014’s Dark Cybertron crossover. As the singularity that swallowed them continues to reside there, is the mystery of the Bumblebee apparition that haunts Starscream about to be solved? Read the pages after the break and find out for sure when the annual’s released on March 8th!
