Autobase Aichi has posted screengrabs from a six hour!
YouTube video of Wonderfes footage captured by Dengeki Hobby Web! The part probably of most interest to us is captured in those screens: a side-by-side comparison of Legends Series LG35 Super Ginrai with Titans Return Leader Class Powermaster Optimus Prime! In addition to the other changes, we see that the Headmaster robot - presumably named Ginrai - has a more traditional Optimus Prime face than PMOP's Orion Pax look. Keep reading and clear your calendar for the screens along with the video!
BaCon's at SDCC 2016 and had an opportunity to interview Hasbro's John Warden! We had some questions about the current events of Generations, Titans Return, and Platinum Edition Liokaiser! We also got confirmation on Liokaiser being the final combiner, and the reasoning behind Dezarus taking the place of Leozack and Jallguar in the combiner. Thanks to John for talking to us, and keep reading to see the video!

George Krstic, creator of Megas XLR
and writer on the Combiner Wars animated series, has posted the first full trailer of the upcoming Machinima/Hasbro co-production! This is our first real look at the art and animation style for the series, and it's significantly removed from the motion comic-style Preludes we've seen so far. Keep reading to see! UPDATE:
it appears the trailer is region-locked to North America. Apologies to our overseas readers!
With the first proper trailer for the animated Combiner Wars web series only another day away, the Machinima Youtube channel has posted a 360-view video showing the character model and design art for Windblade as she appears in the upcoming series. The video just under a minute affords a chance to see many angles from the rough sketch phase all the way up to the finalized, color character art. The video is embedded below, so keep reading and have a look!
The official Transformers Facebook page has posted a new on-set video from Transformers: The Last Knight
! The video, seemingly taken during the recent Arizona shoot... might possibly
be said to contain spoilers? But only if you're completely unfamiliar with Michael Bay's catalog. Within you will see military vehicles and explosions. Also, some behind-the-scenes activity on making the explosions happen, and happen safely. Keep reading to see!
Machinima has posted another video to promote the upcoming Combiner Wars Animated series! This time we get a look at Starscream, who sure doesn't look
like he's been changed much by his tenure on the Council of Worlds. It's a nice short video - less than a minute, but gives you a good look at the Seeker's design process. Keep reading to see!
The Transformers Movie Instagram page has posted a quick video clip showing the new vehicle model for returning character Barricade. Having managed now two return appearances since the first live action movie, Barricade seems one of the more successful of the film series' Decepticon cast - though we'll always find it a missed opportunity that at least toy-wise there wasn't a Barricade in Age of Extinction based on the offroad police cruiser from the farm chase. If you want to see the new Barricade, click through for the embedded video of the car being driven to the set!
The third Combiner Wars Prelude video is out! This one concerns Starscream - who, somewhat like his IDW counterpart, is part of the Council of Worlds that rules Cybertron. The responsibility of this has changed this Starscream, making him a much more reasonable person than the one we're used to. ...at least, if what he says about himself is to be believed. Keep reading to see the video!
Machinima's Twitter account has posted a quick video today featuring Combiner Wars series producer Eric Calderon discussing his most anticipated character to bring to fans in Machinima's animated series, debuting soon on the go90 streaming video service. The video gives a good look at design art for Victorion who - spoilers - Calderon is very excited to get to use since the character has had very limited exposure so far! The tweet with media is embedded below, so come have a look for youself!
The Transformers Designer Desk series is back, this time spotlighting the newly-released G2 Bruticus boxset! John Warden gives us a good look at the figure and describes the origins of the deco and the lengths that were gone to in order to match the original G2 Combaticons - and, of course, Action Masters Shockwave! Click on through to see the video.
Youheidx on Youtube has posted a new video for TAV-50 Hyper Surge Optimus Prime. The TakaraTomy deco for what is just now hitting US retail as Powersurge Optimus Prime in Robots in Disguise is the large, electronic figure built for this year's version of the Mini-Con play pattern. The quick stop motion mostly focuses on a transformation sequence, but gives an overview of both modes, all packaged with sound effects and other toy cameos. The video is embedded below, so come and have a look!
Machinima has shared the 3D design elements from their rendering of Victorion! Hewing very, very close to the Fan-Built Combiner's action figure, Victorion got her own prelude video
earlier this week in the run-up to the Combiner Wars animated series. And now we get to see the design work behind that video -Keep reading to see!
The second Prelude To Combiner Wars motion comic was posted today! This episode centers on Victorion, whose temperament and goals seem slightly different than what we've seen in her IDW incarnation. Believing that combiners represent the unity that the Cybertronian peoples need, Victorion seems to be vying for leadership of the Transformers herself rather than serving as an advisor and protector to Optimus Prime. Interesting! Keep reading to see the video.
Machinima has posted a short video showing off their design work for Optimus Prime as recently shown in the Combiner Wars: The Series
prelude! The final design is shown both in lineart and color forms, and calls out such important attacks as "Optimus Head," "Rocket Stomp," and "Power Fist." Keep reading to see the video!
The official Transformers Twitter has posted a brief video of the cast & crew of Transformers: The Last Knight
