The Transformers Facebook page has revealed when to expect Machinima's newest Transformers web series to debut! Titans Return picks up from the end of the dubiously-acclaimed Combiner Wars web series, and will begin streaming on the go90 platform on November 14th. To this end, a movie poster style image was released on the Facebook page, which you can find mirrored below. Combiner Wars was streamed outside the US on Machinima's Youtube channel. Though we're not aware of any statements regarding international status of Titans Return, we expect similar arrangements for the global audience.
Just in by way of Comicbook.com, is our first look at the new Transformers Universe characters Optimus Prime (shown top right), Bumblebee and Windblade as they are said to appear in the show. What's nice to see is there appears to be some resemblances to their orginal Transformers Generations look and maybe even a bit of G1 thrown in for extra flavor.

are now titled! Thanks to the website TWCC
, we now know the titles - and one description - for the last round of RID. Oddly that one description isn't for the first episode in the list, but the second - but it should hopefully give a look at the direction that the series will be heading in for the home stretch.

G1 Bumblebee voice actor Dan Gilvezan has reported on Facebook that Wally Burr, the voice director for the original The Transformers
animated series, has died at the age of 91. Burr was well-known as a director who knew exactly what he wanted, leading to friction among those he directed at times. But nearly every actor who worked with the man had a humorous Wally Burr story to tell. TFormers offers its heartfelt condolences to Mr. Burr's family and friends.

Robots in Disguise
writer and producer Adam Beechen has posted some valuable info to Twitter! The third season of RID, rebranded as "Combiner Force," is confirmed to be 26 episodes long when counting the 2-part opener that aired this weekend. Beechen also confirms that the block of Starscream-centric episodes Cartoon Network labeled as "Season 3" was considered to be a part of Season 2 on the production side. Keep reading for confirmation!
Cartoon Network have made the first 7 episodes of Robots on Disguise Combiner Force available online starting now through June 6th. The Season kicks off with the two part King of the Hill episode. These are FULL episodes that may or may not be available in other countries. Hasbro recently said they would be doing more online streaming of their shows, and here we are. Read on for more details.
Via multiple reports, it seems Hasbro is sending out advisories to fans subscribed to one mailing list or another that the new season of Robots in Disguise will be starting on April the 29th on Cartoon Network in the US. Included is a promo graphic with an unfortunate naming error showing Menasor and Ultrabee. However, right now advance TV listings do not seem to agree with the contents of the e-mail, instead showing the 6 episode run previously called "season 3" starting over in that day's slot. At the moment, it looks like we'll have to wait and see what the DVRs have to report two Saturdays from now!
Streaming website C21Media has posted the first episode of the most recent season of Robots In Disguise
, "History Lessons"! Whether the episode is region-locked is unknown, but for those who don't subscribe to cable TV this is a good opportunity to get a look at RID. Keep reading for a link!

Dr. Tess Hightower, wife of actor Richard Gautier, has reported to Facebook that Gautier passed away quietly last night at the age of 85. Gautier was likely best known to readers of this site as the voice of Rodimus Prime in the third season of the original The Transformers
cartoon as well as Serpentor on GI Joe: A Real American Hero
. He also had a long career of onscreen performances - most notably Hymie the robot on Get Smart
- and was among his other talents a gifted caricaturist as evidenced by his website. TFormers offers its sincerest sympathies to his family, friends, and fans for their loss today.
