Thanks to Hasbro for providing us with a set for review! An unexpected addition to this year's SDCC exclusives (considering the last boxset was titled "The Epic Conclusion!"), this set features a Cobra Rattler as Powerglide and an unusual 2005 HISS Tank mold as Soundwave. Click here to watch the video!
Michael Bay has posted a video to Instagram giving a quick status report, confirming that filming is indeed happening in Scotland right now. As Bay puts it, it's way up on top of a mountain, and it looks to coincide with the images we saw early this morning, as the filming helicopter is right behind Bay, competing to be the loudest thing in the video - and losing. Not seen, unsurprisingly, is the mounted knight, but he and his horse are probably around there somewhere! Keep reading to see the video for yourself, embedded below.

Shout! Factory has posted two new YouTube videos promoting their upcoming release of Transformers: The Movie 30th Anniversary Edition
! The Blu-Ray edition, due out September the 13th, is taken from a new 4K-grade restoration; the second video details the process of remastering which was done with high-quality film elements.

The batinthesun YouTube channel has posted a behind the scenes video highlighting the Combiner Wars animated series' voice actors!

We've embedded it below, so click through because you should definitely give this a look!

Thanks to brickonator on Twitter for bringing this to our attention. Verizon's go90 service is the official US distribution for the just launched Combiner Wars animated series, but fans in other parts of the world are in luck with an official, legal viewing option. Machinima's Youtube channel has the first episode up right now available to almost the whole world, outside the US, China, and Japan. This should come as happy news, that fans around the world can all enjoy the new series together at once. The international video is embedded below, check it out!
The first episode of Machinima's Combiner Wars animated series is up now on the go90 website! US residents, at least, can watch the show via the website without having to install the app. The episodes are Tartakovsky Clone Wars
style, so this'll only take up five minutes of your time, more or less. The video can't be embedded, so keep reading for a link!
It's the start of the third day of Cybertron Con in Shanghai, and 52Toys is once again providing coverage of the event.

Meanwhile, we've mirrored the shots from the panel presentation featuring character art, location designs and more, and you can find all that in the full post below.
Combiner Wars begins streaming in the US on go90 on August 2nd
The Transformers Movie Instagram page has put up a short clip showing part of the filming of a vehicle action sequence with the Bumblebee car prop, where Mark Wahlberg is seen having his seat slid out of the car as pieces of garbage are thrown at him, all against a standard green screen backdrop. While this might make more sense once in the context of the finished special effect shot, there's also a certain fun in trying to guess what might be happening here. To try your hand at it, keep reading to see the video, embedded below.
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!
