Transformers News and Reviews
RID 2015
TakaraTomy is offering a Transformers Adventure Special DVD with a purchase and registration of the TF Adventure app! If the mechanical translation isn't steering us wrong, every purchase at the AEON toy store between now and 3/21 will - when combined with registering the app at point of sale - net you the Special DVD via mail, which looks to be offering a first look at the Adventure series - which is the Japanese name for Robots In Disguise. Translation sites are not exactly legendary for their accuracy, so take this one with a grain of salt for now- but keep reading to see the disc and a link to the original offer!
Generations
The website Women Write About Comics has posted an audio interview with James Roberts, talking about various facets of his work on More Than Meets The Eye and some of the relations of his ideas to the larger IDW continuity. While it's very general discussion, there's a lot of interesting information dropped through the course of the interview from the whole run of MTMTE. It's definitely worth a listen, so click through for a link to the original article.
Third Party
Following a long buildup of concept drawings, design art, computer renders and 3D printed prototypes, Play With This Too has finally launched their Kickstarter campaign to begin production of their action figure line. Between homages to Transformers, He-Man and other classic properties and artist-original material all built around a flexible base design, Play With This Too can have something for everyone upon successful funding of their project. Head on over to their Kickstarter and check out what they have to offer by clicking here.
Generations
Marking the return of a name long lost to the franchise, Motormaster has been what many were waiting for: An option for the non-Silverbolt Voyager mold that wasn't Optimus Prime. The status as the core of Menasor may be a driving factor in any general preference of one instance of the figure over another, but as it turns out there's still a lot to offer here even for people who already bought Optimus. Continue to the review!

Third Party
Thanks to TFSource who have dropped a preview image of the MakeToys RE:Master series - RM-03 Hellfire figure. Get a look at the line-art for the figure coming our way that should get a few of you excited with a tip of the hat to the G1 Inferno character. Read on the see the image for the teaser on RM-03 Hellfire
Generation 1
...namely: What? The Facebook group Cybertron Phillipines has posted an image of the Triple Changers set showing the G1 Blitzwing and Astrotrain molds with new decos. Blitzwing's purple now skews far more magenta, and Astrotrain has grown some large patches of bright red. You'd be tempted to write these off as early test shots in random plastic colors... except there they are on the boxart in the same color schemes. It'll definitely be interesting to see more pictures of these two, but for now keep reading to see what we've got!
MasterPiece
Next up in Takaras amazing Masterpiece Series is the MP-25 Tracks! He transforms from Chevrolet Corvette to a great looking screen accurate robot. Both figure and vehicle are in scale with the rest of the Autobot cars and other Masterpiece figures. MP-25 Tracks is listed for $79.99. Pre-order it now at bigbadtoystore.com
MasterPiece
Dengeki Hobby has also posted extensive official photography of MP-24 Star Saber, detailing nearly every facet of the much-hyped figure's gimmicks and features. Keep reading to see!

Generation 1 Japan
The Dengeki Hobby website - not to be confused with the TAGHobby news aggregator site, Dengeki Hobby magazine, or TAG Hobby Magazine which doesn't exist - has posted images of QT15 Hound, QT16 Bluestreak, QT17 Tracks, and QT18 Nemesis Prime! It's worth noting that Nemesis Prime is based off of the Movie Optimus Prime QTransformers mold, and perhaps not surprisingly, Movie Prime takes to an evil paintjob very well. Keep reading to see!
 
RID 2015
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: We share our spoiler-free thoughts on episodes 1 - 3 of Robots in Disguise! We also discuss the week's news including MP25 Tracks, the new photos of Wave 2 of Combiner Wars, X-Transbots NOT G2 Beachcomber and more! All that plus a new segment from Rob Springer!


Generations
The Transformers App updated with the new Fan Built Combiner voting options, and along with it is some supplemental material. Under the category of the new combiner's enemy, Galvatronus is presented as an option and revealed for the first time in a piece of art. The image heavily implies Galvatronus (comprised of an assortment of limbs from other teams) has mental attack or control powers, and otherwise we get to see the Galvatron-derived head and the full chest detailing. Click through to check it out!
Generations
The next round of Fan Built Combiner voting has started, and this round you get to help decide the name for the combined form, personality, the designated nemesis from among the Decepticon combiner ranks known so far, and the gender. There's quite an excellent naming option given in the poll choices, while the other categories follow predictable patterns. Read on for a list of all the available options for each category.
Generation 1
Previews have updated their site with listings for the latest Transformers comics and other products that will be shipping Diamond Comics on March 4, 2015. Get the details on Transformers Animated Complete Allspark Almanak, Transformers #38 Days of Decepticon, MTME #38 Days of Decepticon, and more products. Read on for the full details below.
Generations
The Caution, Low Sign Youtube channel has posted a pair of videos shot at Toy Fair earlier this month. One features Long Haul, the structural core of Devastator and shows off the toy's articulation followed by a demo of Devastator's arm becoming a missile battery. The second video is another look at Ultra Magnus, starting with the Minimus interaction we've seen, but ending with John Warden commenting about 1/144th scale elements on the toy and how he wants to find ways to incorporate that even more going forward. Click through to check out both embedded videos.
Generations
After some unavoidable delays, IDW's Transformers titles are finally catching back up. Originally due this month, we'll have to wait until the first week of March for More Than Meets The Eye 38, but to hold us over the customary three-page preview has now appeared on iTunes. This is expected to ship alongside the conclusion to Angry Bird Transformers and The Transformers #38, so be sure to check back with us early next week for the first reviews of all three books. Meanwhile, click through and check out the preview - but as always with MTMTE, spoilers will be present in these pages!
RID 2015
YouTuber chuckdawg1999 has posted a video review for the now-appearing second wave of Robots In Disguise One-Step Changers! Featured in this wave are Grimlock, Steeljaw, and Fixit, and they all look pretty good and have nifty auto-transformations. Keep reading to see!
Prime Beast Hunters
Adweek has posted an article about Hasbro's TV strategies that goes into of detail about The Hub - and what went wrong. The short version is that Discovery was admirably hands-off with the network, leaving Hasbro almost solely in charge of programming... and a combination of slow profits, the proliferation of on-demand viewing, and the departure of President & CEO Margaret Loesch led Hasbro get out of the network-running business. Keep reading for more details on all that and a link to the full article where you can see My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic described as "creepily beloved"!
