It has been a while since I updated this thread. I’m sorry about that… was kind of busy.
The coming months are going to be exciting for Transformers Movie Comic Book Fans.
This week, we will be seeing the release of Transformers: Sector 7 issue #4.
There is also a rumor that the second Transformers 3 prequel series; Transformers: Foundation is to start this 22nd of December, along with S7 #4. The incentive cover for the #1 issue is out as well. It features Movie Optimus Prime in Protoform."In the midst of the darkest days of World War II, Sector Seven's greatest fear has come true—the Nazis have captured a TRANSFORMER! The group's seven deadliest soldiers—a rag-tag group of screw-ups and cast-offs in any other context—go on what's surely a suicide mission into the heart of Nazi Germany!"
Sector 7 series ends January 2011. Unfortunately though IDW is keeping upcoming Transformers: Foundation and the Direct Prequel to Transformers: Dark of the Moon; Transformers: Rising Storm in secret. The recent IDW newsletters are free of any information regarding those comics. We know ‘em coming… they are just not telling us the synopsis and release dates.
Transformers: Foundation issue #2 cover and synopsis:
Sector 7 issue #5 (final issue) cover and synopsis :"War rages on Cybertron, and Optimus Prime has one goal—kill Megatron at any cost! But how far will the Autobot leader go—and what led these two former friends down the road of hate?"
Speaking of release dates, Transformers: Foundation #2 release date was accidentally revealed (12th January, 2011). More info here."Jetfire makes his final judgment against humanity, as he comes face to face with Sector 7 founder Walter Simmons! Meanwhile, in Sector 7's Arctic Command, still housing the frozen frame of Megatron, someone has turned traitor... or is there a Decepticon in their midst?"
On a related not. Here’s a little treat for the Transformers: Sector 7 fans. The Covers Poster.
Transformers: Sector 7 TPB will be available next year (April 26, 2011).
I already pre ordered Transformers: Foundation 2 months ago. Looks very much forward to read it
Those, who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves. Abraham Lincoln
so foundation is set prior to TF1 movie? and any comics. i look forward to continuity issues
im looking forward to rising storm
For those who are waiting for sector 7 #4 and Foundation #1... both have been pushed back. S-7 #4 was to be out the 15th of Dec and Foundation #1 the 22nd of Dec.
S-7 #4 was pushed to the 29th of Dec and get this... Foundation #1 does not have a new set release date yet as the series has had to go through many new edits.
(my thoughts)... either they were going to release info in the comics that Hasbro didnt yet want released or Hasbro didnt like the comics all together and have asked them to further edit them to better fit Bay's universe.
With Foundation, I only heard that we might possibly get issue 2 in February. But I do not know when issue 1 comes out.

Very surprisingly Transformers: Foundation series is no longer listed in IDW Upcoming Comic Books. Denton Tipton didn't even mention the series when he updated his blog with upcoming comic books.
However Transformers: Rising Storm (direct prequel to Transformers: Dark of the Moon") will go ahead but I have a feeling that it's bi-monthly because, Issue #1 will release in January while the issue #2 will release in March.

so... the cover for the 2nd issue of Rising storm has come out and look who's on it. I just want to say hi BARRICADE!!!!!!!
http://www.tfw2005.com/transformers-...1293732446.jpg Thanks guys.
MEGATRON's deadliest plan yet kicks into high gear-it's all-out war! Plus-BUMBLEBEE squares off against BARRICADE for what may prove to be the final time, while OPTIMUS PRIME calls in every AUTOBOT on Earth to put an end to STARSCREAM! The stakes rise in this intense prequel to Transformers 3!
Im sure this could be the series where we will see other absent bots like Jolt get killed off.
As for Barricade... it would seem that this may be the series he finally dies as well. Or does he? Maybe he will change his mode in this series and just maybe we might still see him make it into the movie by doing so.
id rtaher see Barricade kop it on screen, i mean im a nerd enough as it is without buying comic books... :P
>Strangetown< A webcomic based (loosely) on the North Wales town of Llandudno. Go on you know you want to!
Very cool, i'm looking forward to that.
Just read S7#4. Its over all OK but it has become standard to gradually reduce the art quality of any comic book series after a couple of issues. Having said that, i am really enjoying the effort the writer is putting on tieing up inconsistencies in the movies that have already been mentioned before in the respective threads.
On the other hand, i think its kinda far fetched to think humans could have the kind of tech needed to make the transforming tanks the nazis use through out the story, even if reverse engineered from Jetfire. Makes you ask "why didnt the Americans do the same? And if they DID, where were those human-made transformers through out the first 2 movies?"
On a final note, its looking like we could call this series "Tales of Jetfire". He keeps popping up!
Happy news for the Transformers Movie Comic Book Fans. Transformers: Foundation has finally been given an updated release. Issue #1 is now slotted for February 23rd and Issue #2 for March 30th.
