Two Script (W)raps to come this week, this one (being Transformers-UK #5) and Transformers Devastation #3. As it stands, I’m only ‘script-(w)rapping the TF stuff (hey, I know my demographic), skipping the likes of Terminator 2 – Infinity, A.T.O.M., TMNT, etc, but if people out there want it, I can include those too. Let me know. Right, Titan’s Transformers (UK) #5. Ironhide. Having scattered my cast far and wide at the end of issue #2, it’s now a matter of starting to bring them together again, and #5 is our first story not set on another world. We open in deep space, as Ironhide (in protoform ‘meteor’ mode) is caught by… ah, but that’d be telling. Suffice to say that I’m just starting here to explore the possible origins of The Allspark. No one, not even the Cybertronians themselves (including Optimus Prime and Megatron), seem to know exactly where it came from and how/why it found its way to Cybertron, which begs the question (to me at least), where did it come from (and whose was it before)? Actually, Ironhide’s solo outing is a story-within-a-story kind of affair (in ten pages!). We flash back to Cybertron, intro-ing some of the movie toy characters, and get a good look at Ironhide (a sort of more gung-ho, military-minded version of his original, classic incarnation) in full on battle action. No word yet on the artist for this one. Possibly Guido Guidi, possibly Lee Sullivan (both names that have been floated recently). But there’s still a chance (editor) Steve (White) will throw me an artistic curveball here. Keep watching this space for updates.
