Not only content with updating his blog with his own material Jim Sorenson has posted a blog letting everyone know that his "esteemed colleague" and quite frankly all-round "awesome dude" (ask anyone that met the pair of them at Auto Assembly 2010) Bill Forster has updated his Deviant Art
gallery with yet more of his original artwork from The
AllSpark Almanac II.††† Here's the low-down from Jim on the updates that Bill posted
This time around, he's uploaded our Reverse-Pretender alter-egos, Octus and
some heads from the Great War like Moonradar
(a.k.a. RID Megatron, Animated style), some Maccadam's heads like
the adorable Clipper,
I think my favorite might be Skids.†
While, obviously, it was movie-style Skids that inspired the design,
the idea that he'd be infested with brain parasites came from G1 Skids,
where he spent well over 100 UK issues in limbo after Galvatron
time-displaced him there.† I thought it funny to include this element,
but with the much uglier RotF Skids.†
Swing by, let Bill know what you think of his work!
Million Publisher are set to release a new book titled Transformers Animated Encyclopaedia.
† The book will contain 112 pages and includes a mail order figure of Transformers Animated
"Optimus Prime Elite Guard Version"

toy and costs Yen 4900, with an allowed maximum of 2 pieces costing Yen 9200.
You can view the Red Mercury listing of the book here
A new campaign has been annouced in Japan called Transformers Museum, in which stores around Japan will be running exhibitions on the Transformers toy line.† Included in the delbrations is a limited edition† Black Voyager Class Transformers Animated Optimus Prime.
So far not much is known about the event, though it will be occuring
at Otsu Western Store in Kyoto from the 3rd of August to the 8th and at
Yokohama Sogo Store from the 10th to the 16th. So far it is unknown if
further stores and dates will be added.
In addition to Optimus Prime
Black Version being on sale in limited numbers for 4200 yen, attendees
will be able to see a Camaro painted up as Bumblebee and 6ft
models of Prime and Bumblebee, and will be able to purchase Masterpiece
Convoy as well as Transformers T-shirts and cups.
The Otsu Store's page can be seen here
and a .pdf of Yokohama's event can be seen here.
Have you got your ticket pre-registered for Auto Assembly 2010 yet?† No? Shame on you, you better get cracking as the latest two guests have just been announced.† Yes that's right in an interview with TFW2005.com Auto Assembly's own Simon Plumbe announced to the world that both Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster, authors of not only both Allspark Almanacs but also the wonderful Ark Compendiums which showcase the design art for much of the original series will be attending Auto Assembly 2010 right here within the UK.
There appearance at the event is sponsored by this very site.† Yes you read that right, Transformers At The Moon and TransformersAnimated.com not only are we bringing over Derrick J Wyatt but also both Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster!!
So if you are a fan of Transformers Animated this is the event to get to.† If you don't like Transformers Animated but you liked the Ark books, this is the event to go to.† If you don't like that either but you like Beast Wars, this is still the event to go to (Garry Chalk, Scott McNeil).† If you liked, and you know you did, the IDW Wreckers mini-series, once again Auto Assembly 2010 is the event to go to as Nick Roche will be there.† So what are you waiting for, head over to www.autoassembly.org.uk† right now and book a ticket before they sell out.
Derrick J Wyatt has posted a very cool response to one of the latest questions posed to him on Formspring.† When asked "Who's in charge of financial matters on Animated Cybertron? According to the old STARS Tech Spec Manual, the Autobots were traders at one point, and I'd think a planet not at war would have commerce." Derrick replied with a post that introduces the Transformer Universe to a new character ..... Decimus Quadrillon.
"There is commerce on Cybertron. For a great deal of time before Megatron
reappeared, the post Great War has been a time where the Autobots have
created many ways to entertain themselves. There are refuelery
restaurants, energon bars, shopping arcades with every upgrade you could
ever think of, as well as various forms of theater, music, and other
There is a commerce guild that is in charge of the credit and energon
banks.The head of this guild is Decimus Quadrillon, who is the richest
mech on Cybertron. Rumor has it that Decimus' cube shaped headquarters
is actually a giant bin containing over 30,000 square standard
Cybertronian units of raw energon. There are even some wild and unlikely
rumors that he dives into and swims through the energon. An act which
would be very damaging on a Cybertronian's inner workings.
The Autobots have a distrust of other alien races (organics and
non-organics), and do not engage in much, if any, off world trade in
modern times. Cybertron has been invaded, conquered, and nearly
conquered at different points throughout its vast history, leaving the
Autobots with little care to act with outside civilizations." replies Derrick.
Now I'm not sure about you, but I would love to to see how Derrick pictures Decimus now.
Don't forget that if you are in the UK you can meet Derrick first hand by attending Auto Assembly 2010 which takes place next month.
