Ironhide #3 preview

ComicBookResources.com has a preview of Ironhide #3, due out this week from IDW. Please note, shipment is due on Thursday of this week rather than Wednesday, due to the Independence Day holiday. Also, the preview pages do contain a major spoiler, so if you prefer to wait until you have the entire issue in hand, don’t read it!

He’s been stranded on a deserted Cybertron, but IRONHIDE is about to meet the only two other functioning AUTOBOTS on the planet. One is an old friend in dire need of help, and the other is a legendary character making his IDW debut. Mike Costa and Casey Coller reveal why exactly IRONHIDE—and his death—were so important to the future of Cybertron.

MP Grimlock Release Date(?)

Hasbro has updated the Official Transformers website with a bit of news that the Toys R Us exclusive, Masterpiece Grimlock, will be available on shelves July 1st. Please note, however, that this contradicts earlier reports that MP Grimlock will first be available at the TRU San Diego Comic-Con booth before it starts hitting shelves.

Update: Hasbro has changed their news article which now calls MP Grimlock a “New Exclusive”, and no longer refers to the figure as a Toys R Us exclusive. They have also removed the release date of July 1st from the article.
