If you happen to pick up a copy of ToyFare #143, in comic shops today, you shall find therein an article written by yours truly. It’s an interview with the Hasbro Transformers design team, including Aaron Archer, about the new Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen toys.
Here’s the hard sell:
ToyFare #143 hits stores tomorrow, and we once again have two covers for you to agonize over choosing between. On the one hand there’s the terrifying new Megatron figure from the upcoming film Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. On the other hand we have our President (Barack Obama, in case you didn’t know), talking to a hologram coming out of a robot. Decisions!
And here’s what you’ll find luring beneath the covers:
• An interview with Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen screenwriters (and Trek and Fringe writers) Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci! How much did fanboy feedback affect their script? Why are they stepping away from the franchise after this film? Who’s got more Transformer toys?
• An interview with Hasbro’s Transformers brand team about the new movie toys.
• Twisted ToyFare Theatre: What menace will the Megos face this month? Behold, the coming of…Bizarrobama!
• We interview comedy mega-legend Mel Brooks and put ideas in his head about toys!
• We interview DVD legends Shout Factory! about their upcoming Transformers G1 releases!
• The rise and fall (and subsequent re-rise) of Mego toys, as told by the man who started it all, Marty Abrams!
• Ever wonder what would have become of MV Studios’ He-Man comic or Devil’s Due’s G.I. Joe if they hadn’t stop publishing? Wonder no more, because we’ve got a feature all about it!
• Plus, your first look at Mattel’s Masters of the Universe Classics Webstor figure and tons more toys in Incoming, Big Shots, the results of TWO of our recent fan’s choice polls and tons more.
Yes, my friends…it’s a good-ass issue.
