Autobase Aichi has posted links to Amazon's preorder pages for October's trio of Legends remolds! While the pictures themselves are not new, this is the best copy of the extant photos we've yet seen, at a higher resolution and no more "DO NOT COPY" text splashed across the front. Keep reading to see!



Chuckdawg1999 has posted a video review for the recently released TAV15 Lockdown! The Transformers Adventure version of the character uses the Transformers Animated Deluxe mold, so there are few surprises in that regard. But as is common with TakaraTomy releases, the deco is pretty nice. Keep reading to watch!



Catalog photos of Takara's Legends assortment for October have leaked, and it's pretty interesting stuff! According to photos linked to by Autobase Aichi, LG15 will be Nightbird, a remold of Arcee. LG16 will be Slipstream, a remold of Windblade. Most interesting however is LG17, Black Widow (AKA Beast Wars Blackarachnia's Japanese name) who is remolded from the Animated version of the character. Keep reading for more details on all three!



TAG Hobby has posted scans from Figure-Oh (Figure King) magazine today that show off a couple interesting new products due for October: Transformers Adventure gets TAV15 Lockdown, a recolor of the Animated Deluxe figure, and TAV16 Bombshell, the recent Legends-class toy. Perhaps more notable is the appearance of MP-26 Road Rage, complete with what appears to be a new face sculpt! Keep reading for the images!



TFCon's website has just announced that John Moschitta Jr, the voice of G1 and Animated Blurr, will be appearing at TFCon Toronto this year! Mr. Moschitta will be there for the duration of the convention - July 17th-19th - and will be applying his unique skills as host of the charity auction! Keep reading to see the official announcement.



The two indispensable and out of print resources for Transformers: Animated have been combined with new supplemental material to make a definitive reference. Transformers Animated: The Complete Allspark Almanac is the final word on the series by Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster, with contributions from Marty Isenberg, Derrick J. Wyatt, Eric Siebenaler, Aaron Archer, and more! Continue to full review



Jim Sorenson has updated his blog Disciples of Boltax with some preview images from the newly updated The Complete AllSpark Almanac. Get a look at the 8 Page Preview that features updated pages with new art and other things that he turned into what he calls a "Silly Little Contest." As the first person to identify all the changes gets a neat prize of a a sketch card by Bill Forster.



Hasbro ended its agreements with Netflix recently, resulting in multiple series no longer being available for legal on-demand viewing. We have good news this weekend as some of the affected Transformers shows have found a new home. TubiTV now houses the G1 cartoon, the Unicron Trilogy series of Armada, Energon, Cybertron, as well as Transformers Animated. This streaming site is ad-supported, and shows no sign of the other series lost with the Hasbro removal from Netflix, but this is a promising start. Keep reading for a link to the available shows!



Jim Sorenson has posted the art for the upcoming Complete Allspark Almanac to his blog, Disciples of Boltax! The book combines and expands the two individual Allspark Almanac releases into the single best reference book you will ever own for Transformers Animated. Sorenson estimates that the book will hit comic stores on February 18th, and Amazon.com shortly afterwards. Keep reading to see the art!



Japanese site Hobby Collection has posted a list of upcoming releases from TakaraTomy from the end of April through June of 2015. The Transformers Adventure heading continues to play host to both RID 2015 and a mix of other items including Generations figures not falling under the Legends Series in Japan. There are no pictures so far, but some interesting things in the text. Keep reading!



Artist Marcelo Matere posted on Twitter today that he's "working on Transformers Animated again," followed by a semicolon-bracket winky emoticon. He said that news would be coming soon, but the prospect of new TF Animated work is certainly welcome. Matere has worked on Animated package art for Hasbro as well as comic art and book covers for IDW, so there's no real way to narrow down what this new project will be just yet. For now, keep reading to see the original Tweet!



Hot on the heels of the third and final season of Transformers Animated making its way to DVD, Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster's amazing Allspark Almanac books have been combined into a single volume! List price is $39.99 though Amazon has a preorder for the book for $28, and the release date is February 15th 2015. Keep reading for a link to the preorder page!



BaCon's gotten video footage of the preview of Robots In Disguise 2015! The new animation style is looking good, and we get good looks at Bumblebee, Sideswipe, and the Elite Guard and Dinobot members of the team who are as-yet unnamed. Keep reading to see!



Mech iDeas have announced special limited editions of their Techno Toon Titans Buster & Trench, AKA Animated Pipes and Huffer. Taking the reference to its logical conclusion, the pair of plumber bots will be repainted as Nintendo's own Mario and Luigi! 300 will be made, with 150 each available at Auto Assembly UK and TFCon in Canada.

Thanks to the man behind Transformers Animated, Derrick J. Wyatt, who is keep the love alive for the fans of what is arguably the last good Transformers show. Derrick shows us there was a whole more than meets the eye in Animated with this reveal of the Transformers G2 inspired Animated Straxus character. He's looking funky fresh in his day-glo colors ala the G2 color-blinding themes the line is so well known for. Check out the image after the break to share your love for Animated.


Transformers Animated is gone, but not forgotten. So while this is nothing to get in the car and head out hunting for, it is neat to see some uber rare and unproduced action figures surface from time to time. Thanks to Ebay seller amoronline, we have some looks at the Electromagnetic Soundwave. This was a proposed redeco of Animated Activator Soundwave, first revealed through a set of instructions posted to the Hasbro website in August 2010. Check out the images after the jump and share your comments on the figure.


This could very well be the last set of updates to the Animated database, but we have images from the latest Toys R Us Exclusives. Click on the links for pics of Rodimus Minor and Ironhide.


If you haven't checked out your local Toys R Us store yet, you might want to peek in. The Animated exclusives are starting to crop up on shelves as this is posted. Although Arcee has eluded us so far, we were able to snag Cybertronian Mode Ratchet and refresh his profile. You can check the updated profile, along with fresh images, by checking out the Animated Database.


Thanks to Collection Station who have posted official Hasbro images of the Transformers Animated Voyager class Mudbuster Bulkhead and Thundercracker action figures. These new images give us new looks at the robot modes, vehicle modes and the packaged images. The character bio summary has been posted for each figure as well.


A lot of news is better than no news on these guys, I suppose. A little after we told you that Transformers Animated Arcee and Cybertron Ratchet would be Toys R Us store exclusives, GenZhao has provided us some out-of-package shots of the figures, too. Since up until now we have only seen official and random proto and test shots here and there, this is a welcome change. Devour the pics in the gallery.


Ebay seller TFctoy has posted a lot of new ebay auctions for upcoming and one prototype / test shot action figures. The first item of interest is a test shot colored version of the leader class Animated Megatron in silver, red and yellow color. Another Animated figure makes the grade with an auction for Voyager Mudbuster Bulkhead in and out of box. From ROTF we get a look at deluxe Strike Mission Sideswipe and Tuner Mudflap.


Transformers Animated Deluxe Electrostatic SoundwaveThanks again to GenZhao, we have images of the upcoming Transformers Animated Deluxe Electrostatic Soundwave. The gallery finally shows off the Keytar Ratbat. GenZhao says that the wave (along with Freeway Jazz) is due out next year, but BBTS currently has a pre-order for November 2009 along with other previously-released figures.
