The latest work from harrisloureiro has just been posted to Youtube. This time the skilled stop motion animator presents a fight between Warpath, as played by Badcube's Wardog, and Astrotrain using DX9's Chigurh. We're always really happy to see new works from this producer, and this latest video certainly does not disappoint - except maybe that the video doesn't run longer! We have it embedded below, so click through and enjoy!
Cartoon Network's official Youtube channel has posted a pair of new videos showing scenes from what looks like it will be an early episode of the show's second season. Both tie in to varying degrees with toys revealed in the recent batch of preorders, with Overload and his new Mini-Cons. One clip features Fracture meeting the "Cyclone" Mini-Cons, while in the other, Sideswipe teaches Jetstorm and Slipstream an important lesson. We have both videos embedded below, keep reading and check them out!

A video has been posted showing the process of upgrading Combiner Wars Devastator with parts from a testshot of the X2Toys add on. Interestingly while providing almost entire new forearms and hands, the kit still calls for the original wrist plates to be used with the new parts. Otherwise everything seems a simple matter of snapping pieces on during the combination process. The video was originally posted to the Miaopai service, but we've mirrored it to Youtube for easy viewing. Click through to watch!
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!

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!"

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!

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!

We can't embed the video, so keep reading for a link to the video page of the official Transformers website!
