The Transformers go Steampunk!


Recommended Posts

The TRANSFORMERS characters have arrived in a new era–an era from yesteryear. IDW’s new TRANSFORMERS: Evolutions series features special out-of-continuity tales that focus on the ROBOTS IN DISGUISE in various eras throughout history. The property is under license from the Hasbro Properties Group, the intellectual property development arm of Hasbro, Inc.

In issue one of the 5-part debut mini-series, “Hearts of Steel,” writer Chuck Dixon and artist Guido Guidi introduce the robots to the Industrial Revolution, where a charismatic hammer-man named John Henry discovers that a steam-drill is really an alien robot named BUMBLEBEE. Before Henry can process this information the DECEPTICONS attack–disguised as tanks, trains and walking engines. Is this all part of a larger scheme by STARSCREAM? And if so, will the other AUTOBOTS arrive in time to stop his nefarious plans?

“The TRANSFORMERS are such a unique brand of characters that it would just seem unfair not to be able to play with them in different and new sandboxes,” states IDW Publishing Editor Dan Taylor. “TRANSFORMERS: Evolutions gives readers the opportunity to explore new possibilities with some of their favorite AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS in out-of-continuity events that have never been explored.”

TRANSFORMERS: Evolutions “Hearts of Steel” #1, the first issue of an all-new TRANSFORMERS 5-issue miniseries, premieres in June 2006 with a 32-page full-color comic book with a suggested cover price of $2.99.

The eriee look of the steampunk designs reminds me a lot of War of the Worlds, especially the piece with Shockwave rising from the water.

I really love Bumblebee and Megatron's designs.
