We heard through the brand presentation today about Trypticon's special features. Such as eating Titan Masters. That's not a thing that conveys well in still photography, and so the Unicron.com got a quick demonstration, which they shared as a video on Facebook. In the process, there's a close look at Deluxe Full-Tilt, and how its presence relates to decisions about incorporating electronics within Trypticon. You can find the video in the full post just below - keep reading!

The Transformers Official Instagram account has posted a short video teasing the appearance of Titans Return
Titan-class Trypticon at Toy Fair 2017! In a nod to the seemingly accidental release of the official render of the figure's dino mode, the short clip acknowledges that Trypticon is "known for sneak attacks and sneak previews." Keep reading to see!
I'll admit I might be a little bit biased since I have what I'd call a greater than average love for G2, but even among the generally high quality of early Transformers toy commercials, G2's have always stood out in particular to me. Discovering that The Spacebridge, purveyors of rare and unusual supplemental Transformers material, had a compilation of these commercials on their Youtube channel gave me cause to revisit them - and share that with you. Said to be sourced from original tape masters, these are likely the highest quality we'll ever see these. Click through to see!
It's often the case that the Japanese version of a trailer will contain shots not seen in the domestic version.

Director Michael Bay has responded to the leak of the Transformers: The Last Knight
extended Super Bowl trailer the only mature way you can: with an early official release! No more hoping that the YouTube link you've checked is still available - you can check out the official trailer video after the jump!
with a fresh embed! Through some means or another, someone has found where the The Last Knight
full length Super Bowl spot was uploaded in advance to the Transformers Movie Youtube channel. The video right now is set to "unlisted", though that status is likely to change sooner rather than later. This 53 second version mostly contains extra transitional shots between the pieces we saw in Friday morning's preview, though a few extra lines of dialogue may be present as well. The video can be found embedded below - for as long as it remains accessible, at least!

TakaraTomy has released a second, commercial for their Transformers: Movie THE BEST Series

Transformers @ The Moon has posted yet another tape of G1 dialogue! This one is a special treat, because it's from the episode that would come to be known as "Fire In The Sky," in which the character of Skyfire was introduced... but here, in the original unmodulated recording sessions, the name is given as Jetfire throughout! Keep reading to hear a lot of unused G1 dialogue!
How many different TV spots can you make out of the footage from a 2-minute trailer, anyway? Currently Transformers: The Last Knight
is up to three, with no real reason to assume we won't see at least a couple more between now and the next trailer, which will almost definitely
air during the Super Bowl. Keep reading to see!
