What Do You Want In Transformers The Ark Volume 2?

With the apparent success of Transformers The Ark earlier this year, IDW Publishing are planning on a second volume with more original character models from the TV show and comics.

The collection will contain over 200 pages with stuff from Headmasters, Masterforce, Victory, Zone, Studio Ox designs, advertisements and much more. The book is due in the summer of 2008, but IDW want your suggestions for what you would like to see.

Hopefully the success of this book will lead to similar projects involving other Transformers series.

Latest Metrodome Newsletter

Metrodome have sent out their latest newsletter giving details on Masterforce, Victory, TFTM 20th Anniversary Edition and Sci-fi Cult Legends.

Dear Transformers fans,

We thought it was time we dropped you a line with some news on Transformers to light up the rest of your 2007, and we�re pleased to say that we�ve got plenty of good news. First up we want to tell you about an up and coming title called �Cult Sci Fi Legends�, a new collection from Metrodome that features three hours of classic animation. Not only does it feature two newly subtitled episodes from Transformers Victory that have never been released in the West, it also features classic episodes from Visionaries, Inhumanoids, Shadow Raiders, Bucky O Hare and Transformers � �More than meets the eye�. We�ve put this together to give Transformers fans a chance to sample some other revolutionary visions of science fiction, as well of course to give you a sneak preview of Transformers Victory � the final collection in the Takara series that�s being released in August this year. We believe that this collection brings forward titles from a time when writers and artists were willing to put �formula� aside and truly step into the unknown, all these properties made concerted efforts to push the boundaries of imagination and style � and that�s why they�ve become cult classics decades later. So whether you just want to indulge your nostalgia or discover some new worlds � we heartily recommend this collection to you. And all this is available for the frankly fantastic price of just £7.99 (inc p&p) from The collection is released on June 26th. In other news – as many of you have heard, we�ve had to move our Masterforce release to July 3rd, but in the next few days we�ll send you details on the extras, full artwork and the chance to download the first episode absolutely free! At the moment we�re hard at work finishing the subtitles on Victory and working on our forthcoming 20th anniversary release of Transformers The Movie, more news to come � but keep checking the forums at for updates. All the best Metrodome
