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. Click through for the pictures!

Hard to believe that it's been 7 years since Transformers: Animated rolled out onto Cartoon Network. For three seasons, this US produced series brought a new spin on the Transformers universe. While the art stylings were controversial to some, the series did an admiarable job of tying in the TF multiverse to keep all fan bases happy. Sadly, Hasbro and Cartoon Network dissolved their relationship. Worse yet, only 2 of the 3 seasons were ever commercially released before the 2 entites went their separate ways. Finally, Shout Factory is filling the void by offering the complete series in one DVD set.

IDW's Andrew Griffith is bringing a bunch of new prints with him to BotCon 2014, including a Shattered Glass version of Animated Optimus Prime and Sari, as well as matching Generation 2-styled prints of Optimus Prime and Megatron and an homage to the cover of Marvel's Transformers #50. The G2 Prints are our favorite, referencing the voice clips the two toys were able to play (over and over and over...). Click the title for the mirrored images and then go like Andrew Griffith over on Facebook!

Thanks to Shout! Factory we have an in-hand copy of the Transformers Animated Complete Series DVD. Get a look at the packaging and discs from the fan-favorite cartoon series that includes the much coveted Third Season! Read on to see the cover, packings with discs and shots of the DVD menus for the full preview now. Stay tuned for a review of the complete set that will be following soon.

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.

Official Hi-Res Images of Transformers Animated Freeway JazzWe just received some high resolution official shots of Transformers Animated Deluxe figures Freeway Jazz and Electrostatic Soundwave. We have uploaded them to the respective figure's database entries. Take a look by clicking on each figure's name. As originally reported, these figures are slated to ship together in Deluxe Wave 3 in November.

Thanks to "chenkofs," we have new images the green and black Voyager Bulkhead repaint (previous images here) as well as Deluxe Freeway Jazz. These images mark the first time we have seen Freeway Jazz since BotCon 2009. Take a look at the shots in the gallery!
