IDW Transformers Comic Releases – 29/10/08

Written by Big Bot on October 27, 2008 | Armada,Comics,IDW Publishing,News | Tags: , ,

Time for a blast from the recent past, with the reprint of Dreamwave’s Transformers Armada Volume 1 TPB, collecting issues #1-6 of the series.

The comic takes the story in a different direction to the cartoon, so is worth picking up if you cannot stand the animated series. The book is drawn by James Raiz and written by Chris Sarracini.

Chris Ryall again has the cover for your viewing pleasure.

Yet more word on UK Armada

Written by admin on October 11, 2007 | Armada,News,Toys |

I too can confirm this – I saw Overload, the Air Military and Emergency Teams last November, and have seen them fairly regularly since. PL Jetfire, I saw in Woolworths in January, and Predacon and Powerlinx Red Alert in Belfast’s Toys R Us in February. Saw both of those two in my Smyths (Irish toy store chain) just a month ago, too, and Hoist, Rhinox and Terrorsaur have appeared there within the last two weeks. There were some very sparse sightings of Wheeljack in Argos last year, too, though I never saw one myself.
