Timey2Wimey takes back in time one more time (that’s a lot of times) to look at one of his favourites (though many disagree, maybe you’re one of them), Armada Scavenger.
You can also discuss this review, if that’s what you want to do, in our Transformers forum. What do you think of Transformers Armada Scavenger? let us know, and let Timey know what you think of his review.
After yesterday’s listings for Transformers: Animated Volumes 5 & 6, some more Trade paperbacks are listed on Amazon with rough release dates.
The main surprise is the listings for a reprint of Dreamwave’s More Than meets The Eye series with Volume 1 in September and Volume 2 in December. There is also another Dreamwave production, Transformers Armada Volume 1 in October.
The Transformers movie sequel: Reign of Starscream TPB is out in November.

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.

The Armada comic of course features original work by Simon Furman, Lee Sullivan and Andy Wildman. Head on over there now and check out the news, and illustrations!

Indeed Alex is quite correct the figures he has mentioned are already here and have been for a while, well since Christmas anyway.
