Transformers Legacy - a new archive book by Jim Sorenson, covering the official artwork of the toys and packaging throughout Gen1 & Gen2, around the world. It is said to include unreleased items that had artwork done for them. Release date is yet to be announced.

July is Decepticon Month (each of the three comics has a "Decepticon" theme to it)

.
These are two Decepticon Covers, that join together....

...but wouldn't look right without a couple more covers to go with it.

.
August is Dinobot Month (same deal, as all three comics feature the Dinobots... timed with the FOC game I guess, which also has a Dinobot element to it)

The Dinobots theme was apparently not forced, it just came together at the same time for each of the three comics.

The three Dinobots issues...

Something new that they wouldn't talk about, but wanted to tease us with this image.

Q&A
Crossovers - no plans
Hearts of Steel - no plans
More Wreckers - no plans (but see MTMTE #6)
Profiles in the comics like during Gen1 - no plans
Beast Wars/BM - no plans
Animated - no plans
Spotlights - no plans
Movie comics after TF3 - no plans

Deaths Head in RG1 - Can't, but "something else has been borrowed instead" ????
In RG1, dead means DEAD... especially as the story gets closer to the end (#100).
Ratchet/Megatron fusion in G1 - a BIG/pivotal element in the first arc of RG1.
Same with Hot Rod - big character in RG1.

Should be more Arcee and Fembots in the two ongoings, and possibly a less psychotic Arcee.

Digital is the future, but with an increase in their sales this year, printed comics aren't going anywhere for a while yet.
