The previously announced QTransformers plushes have an ad up on YouTube... and they talk! (in Japanese!) You can ask Optimus Prime about a subject, and just like on the QTransformers
anime, he'll struggle to come up with a decent joke involving that word. And it seems the TV trio of Lockdown, Prime, and Bumblebee can all talk to each other! Keep reading to see the ad.

On the forums, koolkollectibleskhai has left us an interesting video today. Having recently purchased the rerelease of Masterpiece Sideswipe, he identified a few differences versus the original. While the new, redesigned collector coin is quite obvious, there are some more subtle changes, some good, some not. It's definitely an interesting video, and could be helpful if you're considering picking up a Sideswipe. Keep reading to see the embedded video!
This week, the QTransformers visit Puroland, the theme park operated by Hello Kitty creators Sanrio. And Optimus Prime is super-excited to be there! Obviously this is an advertisement for the Hello Kitty QTransformers, but the usual QTF weirdness is on display. Keep reading to see it in Japanese!
Thanks to official Hasbro Singapore channel on YouTube we have some new promotional videos for the Transformers Robots in Disguise figures coming our way. Get a look at the videos that feature cartoon and toys transformation looks for the Transformers toys Mega Optimus Prime, Super Bumblebee, and the Minicon Deployers. Read on to see them all below.
It's Monday, so it's time for your nigh-incomprehensible Japanese-language Transformers cartoon fix! Today, Shockwave, Megatron, Starscream, and Soundwave talk about the history of small, cute Transformers toys in Japan, ranging from BeCool (Bot Shots) to Choro-Q Transformers! As a bonus, the Decepticons try to up their cute game by sounding like cats. "Eject!! ...nyan!"
Keep reading to be confused!
This week on QTransformers II: Cliffjumper explains the post-Beast Wars Transformers continuity to Lockdown, including Car Robots, Micron Legend, Super Link, and Galaxy Force! We have to presume that the title is referring to their failure to be
sequels to G1, since the phrase "parallel world" comes up at least once. Keep reading to watch the Japanese-language, dialogue-intensive comedy series!
TakaraTomy is continuing their series of quick, straightforward transformation videos for the Transformers Adventure line! Today it's Micron Shooter Drift (AKA Mini-Con Deployers Drift), Ground Vehicon General, and an incredibly short video for Thunderhoof from the TED easy-transformation collection.

This week's QTransformers II episode guest-stars Arcee, whose appearance in the series was just announced last week!
She's there to explain Beast Wars and Beast Machines to Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Lockdown. While the series always had comedic elements, the comedy was ratcheted way up in the Japanese dub of Beast Wars, resulting in a very different tone for the series - one that Lockdown seems to be having trouble coping with. Keep reading to watch the Japanese language animation!
We've seen all kinds of Transformers made from just about everything, not a toy. Somewhere, someone is always tinkering with a new idea and it seems this latest one takes the cake, literally! Thanks to Youtuber, russellmunro, who has posted this video from a 6 year old's birthday party featuring an Optimus Prime birthday cake that actually transforms. What a nice surprise! Read on to see the clip and a little behind the scenes on how it was done.
Hasbro has released a new short clip from the second part of Robots In Disguise's first season! Titled "Optimus Prime in Battle" and/or "Optimus Prime Prepares," what it shows is far closer to the first title - but we don't want to give any further details away. We can't embed the video, so keep reading for a link to the video page of the official Transformers website!
The Transformers Official YouTube channel has posted a commerical for Combiner Wars Defensor! Done in the enhanced stop motion style of the previous Superion ad, the commercial features some really nice little touches, like Groove bouncing slightly on Defensor's chest as the combination is completed.

The winter holidays are right around the corner (sorry parents, didn't mean to frighten you), and it's about time we started seeing ads for the toys that retailers will be pushing for that shopping season. Today we've got an ad for Super Bumblebee - which amusingly enough actually portrays the character as gigantic next to Decepticon Steeljaw. No scale? No problem. Click through and watch!
The episode title translated pretty cleanly this time! ...though it's possible the better translation might've been Adults-Only
. This week's QTransformers stars Decepticons Soundwave, Starscream, Shockwave, and of course Megatron, as they discuss Kiss Players. Luckily, the episode seems largely safe for work. Click through to see!
Voice actors Frank Welker (Megatron) and Peter Cullen (Optimus Prime) are brought together for Texas Comicon 2015 in a single panel to answer questions but also crack jokes and have everyday conversation with each other as the voices of Transformers Megatron and Optimus Prime. Hope you enjoyed the video that you can watch below now.
Ever wondered about the new kinds of Transformers introduced past 1986? Pretenders? Headmasters? Powermasters, or Godmasters as they're known in Japan? So does Lockdown. Drift helps lay out the post Season 3 Japanese TV series in this week's episode of QTransformers II, and while Lockdown is typically confused, Bumblebee seems to think it's all just one big bizarre adventure. Click through to see the episode (in Japanese without subtitles)!
Recently we pointed you to a stop motion review from the Japanese Youtube channel youheidx, and today we're happy to be able to show another of youhei's productions, this time featuring the Kabaya Seacon kits. The video shows an abbreviated assembly for each figure, giving individual overviews, and them demonstrates transformation and combining. It's probably the most fun look you'll get at this round of candy toy models, so definitely keep reading and take a look at the embedded video!
