The film’s tie-in comics (comics that were not adaptations of the films, but rather supplementary material to build up the world) are fairly unknown, which is a shame because there are some really great elements that deserved to appear in the films. FIRST FILM Transformers: Ghosts of Yesterday - Transformers Wiki A S7 spacecraft, reverse-engineered from Megatron’s body, is sent on a space mission and encounters the Autobots and Decepticons. This actually serves as a more legitimate reason as to how the Transformers were guided to Earth for the AllSpark (and makes more sense than the “eBay” explanation). This deserved a mention at least from Banachek. Transformers: Movie Prequel - Transformers Wiki There’s nothing too special except Bumblebee arriving on Earth and searching for clues to the AllSpark. A brief scene of him searching for clues, similar to Blackout, would probably have contributed to the film and to him tracking down the Witwickys to Bobby Bolivia. ROTF Transformers: Alliance - Transformers Wiki Highlights of the comic include: - Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime’s hologram - a funny scene with Ratchet (Image:Alliance1 Ratchet Dew.jpg - Transformers Wiki) - a great scene with Lennox and Optimus where they discuss their NEST alliance Transformers: Defiance - Transformers Wiki This actually explored HOW Megatron was corrupted by the AllSpark and the war began on Cybertron. It might have been impossible to show on screen, but it was a definite great read. Transformers: Tales of the Fallen - Transformers Wiki This was a series of comics focusing on a particular Autobot/Decepticon. Most notable is Jetfire turning against the Fallen, that would have been incredible to have seen. Transformers: Nefarious - Transformers Wiki Can you believe it? The Bayverse had its own MECH and Silas! Only the organization was known as the Initiative, their leader was a William Stryker ripoff named Carter Newell, and they were interested in recreating the Allspark and wiping out all the Transformers! It would have been great to see in live-action. DOTM Transformers: Sector 7 - Transformers Wiki This was pretty much Jetfire’s life story, exploring his time on Earth: he was a battleship in the 1800s, he had a punch-up with Megatron, Eleanor Roosevelt beat the slag out of him, then he ended up captured by Nazis but beat them up... he had a heck of a time. Wish there were reports of his exploits mentioned in the film. Does anyone else look at the tie-in comics, and is there anything they liked enough to feature in the films?
