Transformers News and Reviews
Generations
Benscollectibles on Youtube have posted a few new video reviews for the Transformers Generations Combiner Wars figures. Get an in-hand review of the Optimus Prime, Silverbolt, and Firefly figures that we first saw last summer at BotCon and SDCC. Read on to watch all three of the video reviews below for more information on these Transformers toys.
MasterPiece
Thanks to Benscollectibles who has posted a video review MP-22 Ultra Magnus Transformers Masterpiece figure from Takara Tomy. Get a look at this much anticipated figure that finally delivers on all the Ultra Magnus glory with car carrying trailer and all. Watch the video review to see who this figure measures up to expectations along with details on transformation and much more.
RID 2015
The Transformers Official YouTube Channel has posted a trailer for the RID 2015 Smartphone game, available now on iOS and due in January for Android. The game allows you to scan your RID figures to use them in-game, and a flash of a screen that classifies characters as "Starter" or "Legion" suggests that (surprise!) purchased characters will be more powerful than ones simply unlocked. Keep reading to see the trailer!
Generations
The long, long-awaited G1 Arcee figure is hitting stores now! RAC likes the figure, but some extremely otaku design choices detract from the overall enjoyability (and even G1 accuracy) of the figure in favor of making the Arcee of designers Hironori Kobayashi and Yuki "Kiss Players" Ohshima's very... personal dreams. Also, you currently have a 25% or less chance of getting fully functional hands. Continue to full review

Generations
Robotkingdom has put up solicitations for Wave 2 of Combiner Wars at the Voyager and Deluxe scales, with a shipping date of mid-to-late January! Looks like Hasbro is trying to aggressively follow up on the success of the Age of Extinction toyline- and probably push to get new product stocked so we don't end up with eons of pegwarmers like we did with Dark of the Moon. Keep reading for links, wave breakdown, and pricing details!
Generations
On the Transformers Facebook page, we have another image outlining the development process for Firefly, the renamed Fireflight figure from the Combiner Wars Aerialbot team. This image also carries the same very generic head sketch, making it less likely to have any significance of its own. The sketches on the right may show minor potential revisions, but for now this image is a good look at the basics of how Firefly's toy came together. Keep reading to check it out!
RID 2015
Toys R Us has updated their website and the first assortments of One-Step, Legion, and Warrior Class figures are now in stock. These range from $8 to $17 before shipping, and currently Toys R Us is offering a half-off special on expedited and express shipping which may still give you the opportunity to receive these figures before Christmas. Click through for the category link. Note that all items are in stock as of this writing, but availability may change at any time!
Generation 1
There's a point where things can be so bad, they are good. The folks at Shredders have taken this idea to the next level with their line of pop culture inspired Xmas sweaters. Fans will be happy to know they can get a wonderfully tacky Transformers sweater rippling with woven Optimus Prime goodness. The sweaters can be ordered online in sizes from XS, for the kids, to XXXL for the big folks too at $79.99 USD. Read on for the details and a look at the hideous goodness.
Rescue Bots
Discovery Family has posted a clip from next week's episode of Rescue Bots! According to the synopsis, Colonel Quarry forces Doc to build more robotic dinosaurs, resulting in the conversion of Chase, Boulder and Blades to Rescue DinoBots! Keep reading for a link to the clip!
Generation 1
Bryce Malek, who served as story editor for the first two seasons of the original Transformers cartoon, filmed a short movie showing his workplace at Marvel Productions. Part of the video shows Malek looking over a draft script of The Immobilizer, here titled "The Molecule Immobilizer". While this doesn't offer a lot besides Malek's attempts at basic cinematography, it's an interesting and rare chance to see behind the scenes where the scripts for Transformers were created. Click through and check out the embedded video!
 
Rescue Bots
It's Saturday again! And Saturday means Transformers Rescue Bots. This week's episode, "Bot-tastic Voyage," centers on the Bots' efforts to clean Kade's system of cleaning nanobots. Click here to see the preview clip, and keep reading for the episode synopsis and link to Discovery Family's schedule page!
MasterPiece
Robotkingdom has MP-22 Ultra Magnus in stock, and they've taken an extensive gallery of photos showing off his gimmicks and transformation, as well as his extra face(s) and his passengers Spike and Daniel! Keep reading to see a sampling of the gallery, then check out Robotkingdom on Facebook to deal with nearly 60 photos of Ultra Magnus now!
Conventions Center
Fun Publications have begun the process of hyping up Botcon 2015, coming to an obscure and remote suburb of Chicago near you next summer! Today they've stated that the official reveal for the box set theme will be made during the week of New Year's, with toy reveals to follow soon after. They followed this with a series of conditions to explain what the set would not represent, launching a flurry of speculative activity for what remains. You can click through and see the original tweets and find out what's off the table this year!
Generations
The Transformers Facebook page has uploaded a Designer Desk image, featuring the newest Aerialbot, Alpha Bravo. The Slingshot substitute is shown at each of the major design steps, from sketch, to model, to production-plastic sample and deco sheet. But the real bonus from this glimpse behind the scenes are the head sketch and helicopter art. The latter could very well be what to expect of a Blades reuse of this mold, and while the head is quite generic, might that be the pre-tool alternate? Only Toy Fair can tell us, but in the meantime keep reading to check out the full image!
Generations
Pre-holiday toy distribution can be an amazing thing sometimes, as the United States has gone from zero to nearly full availability of Combiner Wars in a short few days! Pushing the cycle forward we have our first reports of Combiner Wars toys hitting store shelves, with the Legends assortment making it to Target locations, priced at $9.99. So far Austin, Texas and North Little Rock, Arkansas have been confirmed and more are sure to follow. These will be everywhere soon, so hold tight and save your money! Click through for the photo evidence.
Age of Extinction
The official ILMVisualFX Youtube channel has posted a new video featuring ILMs visual effects work for Michael Bays Transformers: Age of Extinction. See a prevideo of what is said to represent a fraction of the work created by over 400 artists, scientists, and engineers working with a world-class production team. Including the films Visual Effects Supervisor, Scott Farrar, who was honored with the Hollywood Visual Effects Award on November 14, 2014.
Age of Extinction
Planet Iacon have posted a couple of new images showing us an DMK03 AOE Optimus Prime Dual Model Kit out of the box. Get a look at the newest model kit from Takara Tomy that fans will be able to assemble and decorate as they like And this one looks like its going to need a lot of decorating to make it look anything like the official images. Get a look at the figure with close up of the head sculpt below and the official images for comparison.
Age of Extinction
The official Takara Tomy site has been updated with images and details for their Clear Movie Bumblebee Q Transformers figure. This is another of the mini-figures being offered as Toys R Us Exclusive in their onging prize campaign for the Transformers Lost Age (Age of Extinction) movie. Get a look at these transparent yellow cast of TF4 Bumblebee in robot and his Q-style alternate mode along with google translated details.
