QTransformers is coming back for another round of entertaining confusion! (For those of us who don't speak Japanese anyway!) Starting on July 6th, the second season of web animation shorts will feature Decepticons Starscream, Shockwave, and Soundwave! Of the three, we're able to identify Shockwave's voice actor as one Kaito Ishikawa - but that's the extent of our ability to decipher kanji. Keep reading for a look at the tiny Decepticons!
Site sponsor Robot Kingdom has posted images to their Facebook of Robots In Disguise Wave 4 at both the Legion and Warrior size classes! Newcomers to Wave 4 include Night Ops Bumblebee and Gold Armor Grimlock - who of course apes his G1 color layout. At the Legion size, new figures include Alpine Sideswipe and a different Night Ops deco for Bumblebee. Keep reading to see!
Appropriately enough, Weibo user Starscream has posted images of the upcoming Combiner Wars Leader-class Starscream! Starscream is a recolor of Thundercracker... who is himself a remold of Jetfire. But he's got a new hat! And it is crown-shaped. Keep reading to see Starscream!
A Weibo user has posted more new images of Combiner Wars Titan Devastator, and you may not be surprised at all to learn that previous Titan-class release Metroplex is still much taller than the Constructicon combiner. To some, it's probably a relief! Additional photos show off a few of the individual Constructicons as well - keep reading to see!

TakaraTomy has once again graciously posted their version of Robots In Disguise to YouTube without any kind of regional exclusion. So if you want to see Jazz make his appearance in Japanese (where he's called Jazz, interestingly - not Meister!), keep reading to see the video!
Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner gave a presentation at the Global Consumer Conference 2015 yesterday, outlining the company's plans. Much was made of Star Wars, naturally, but Goldner also had the chance to elaborate a bit on the plans for the Transformers Cinematic Universe. Apparently one of the ideas under consideration is a Bumblebee standalone movie. Keep reading for more details!
While we didn't get the anticipated images of the Windblade to finish the trio, we do have some looks at the Combiner Hunters-deco Arcee in new detail. With a slightly better look at the paint on the face, the real news is the revelation of remolded hands. This release at least will see normal 5mm compatible hands versus the slot-style seen originally. This of course lends better to carrying the Beast Hunters sword seen in the comic cover art, but may leave Arcee less able to use the original accessories. Click through and check it out.

The Botcon website has finally been updated with information about how attendees flying in for the show can reach the venue in the distant suburb of St Charles from the city of Chicago itself. We've tried to break down the information a little to be clearer so those visiting the city or using its public transportation for the first time better understand what's being asked of them.

The official Xtransbots facebook page has posted some new looks at the Arkose MM-VIII Test Shot figure. Get a look at the unpainted Not Beachcomber figure. Shown in robot and alternate modes, as well as with Witwicky riders for comparisons,
RAC reviews the last of the Deluxe Protectobots, Streetwise! He's pretty slick in both his own modes, is fun to transform, and makes for okay limbs for Defensor. He also has a triple-barreled shotgun! Continue to the video review!
Here comes a new challenger! A new third party by the name of Voodoo Robots has posted a few images to Facebook, showing a hardcopy of what is undoubtedly G1 Ratchet. At this point we don't know scale, or style, or anything else, but we'll post more as it becomes known. Keep reading to see the van pictures!
Member fatbot of the Ozformers message board has sighted a previously unknown pair of RID Legion-class two-packs at his local (to Australia) ToysRUs! They feature Bumblebee vs. Underbite and Optimus Prime vs. the otherwise as-yet unreleased Megatronus! Also interesting is that Bumblebee and Optimus' card art seem to sport modified head designs that the toys within do not. Keep reading to see the photos!
The Allspark has posted better scans of Figure-Oh (Figure King) magazine, giving us a better look at quite a few upcoming figures! Of particular note are TAV19 Powerglide and TAV20 Adams (Cosmos), showing off on Cosmos in particular a more elaborate paint job than the Generations Legends version of the toy. Also, a much better look at MP-26 Road Rage's face! Keep reading to see!

Get a look at the new image that shows Laserbeak on what is labeled as "Laserbeak Mission: Gather Combiner Intel" Read on to see the image and more details.
Cyclonus was an unexpected choice, both for a presence in Combiner Wars, and as a retool of Silverbolt. But the potential was there if you looked close enough at Silverbolt, and the idea became intriguing. Today, ExVee takes a look at this figure to find out how well it all worked out in practice, with coverage in video, plus text and photos. Click here to go to the review!
Here's a look at the new Warrior Class Sideswipe from the new Transformers Robots In Disguise line. Sideswipe has a very nice car mode with a fairly simple transformation. Robot mode looks good but has some issues with the shoulders staying pegged in. Please rate, comment and subscribe!
