IDW is rolling out a truly epic crossover. Early Thursday morning, the My Little Pony fansite Equestria Daily revealed details for an upcoming IDW graphic novel featuring two iconic properties: Transformers and My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. The book is entitled Transformers: Friendship In Disguise! and features the autobots and decepticons meeting the residents of Equestria, thanks to a spell cast by Queen Chrysalis. The book will be written by Ian Flynn and James Asmus, with art by Tony Fleecs and Jack Lawrence.
Asmus confirmed the news on Twitter, writing, “TRANSFORMERS MEETS MY LITTLE PONY!! Writing this has been PURE JOY! And I sincerely think you’ll get a big kick out of it, if youre [sic] a fan of either one — or just oddball crossovers in general.”

According to the plot synopsis, Queen Chrysalis’ spell brings the autobots and decepticons into the heart of Equestria, where Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Fluttershy, Applejack, Spike, and their friends fight evil through the power of friendship on a regular basis. Here’s the full summary:
Ponies, Autobots, and Decepticons mix it up in this graphic novel mashup!
When Queen Chrysalis casts a spell looking for more changelings, she accidentally interferes with a malfunctioning Spacebridge! What’s this mean for our favorite fillies? There are suddenly a bunch of Autobots and Decepticons in Equestria! And as the dust settles, Rarity and Arcee find themselves teaming up against a hostile Decepticon force.
Plus Spike and Grimlock; Pinkie Pie, Gauge, and Shockwave; Fluttershy, Discord, and Soundwave; Rainbow Dash and Windblade; and Optimus Prime and Twilight Sparkle all team up for more adventures.
This is going to be absolutely bananas, in the best way possible. IDW is no stranger to epic crossovers with its licensed titles, but bringing Transformers and My Little Pony together is a stroke of pure genius.
Transformers: Friendship In Disguise! is slated for release on Nov. 3, 2020. Check out the cover art below.
