YouTuber Silver Knight has posted a TV spot from Brazil for the RID Happy Meal toys! Besides featuring a pretty nice CGI Bumblebee, the ad features the four choices available: the Sideswipe and Grimlock toys from the US promotion, and Bumblebee and Optimus Prime facemasks. In fact, I'd say they're more tiaras based on how they work. Click through to watch the ad!
This week, it seems like everyone on the QTransformers II animation team had the week off except for the poor background designer, as the animation is even more limited than usual. We assume the writers also took off and let a Capcom PR writer take over, as this episode seems to be Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Lockdown, and Tracks sitting around talking about how much they like the Sengoku Basara series of video games. Keep reading and you'll see what we mean!
It's Monday, so that means it's time for another episode of QTransformers II! This week, the Decepticons seemingly lament not being as popular as the Autobots, and an amusingly deep-voiced Starscream has some ideas about that. Click through to watch!
A video was posted to Weibo by a user we haven't been able to identify just yet, showing a somewhat large figure based on Beast Wars Dinobot. Going by the way it's designed, we're assuming this is the work of an unofficial group, but right now any conclusion is complete speculation. The video is now mirrored to Youtube for easier viewing, and we've got it embedded below, so click through and take a look.
Walruslaw has posted a copy of a promo video for the large Transformers Adventure Optimus Prime to Youtube. Featured are the voice clips and an example of the toy's light up elements. Due to be released later this month, the toy is also shown with an assortment of weapons that other Adventure series toys can use. As for how this works as a scale representation of Optimus to the Warrior Class toys... best not to dwell on such things. Click through to check out the video.
While some companies have been behaving better than others when their SDCC-exclusive trailers get leaked to the internet, Hasbro Studios has cut to the chase and just released their RID promo reel themselves!

It's that time again! The new episode of QTransformers II is up, and this week's episode seems to be about how to tell the G1 Autobots From the G1 Decepticons.

Seibertron has posted to their YouTube channel footage from the Hasbro Panel showing a Combiner Wars promotional video. It's narration ofver a film clip made entirely of existing images and footage from Transformers: Devastation and IDW's comics, but a date is given of 2016, suggesting this is a very early preview for the Hasbro/Machinima Combiner Wars animated series.

With a fresh SDCC exclusive Devastator in hand, I decided to record a quick unboxing video as a preview while production of full reviews gets underway.

The reviews will follow soon, so in the meantime click through and check out our preview video!
An unexpected hit in Japan, the QTransformers animation series has returned for a second season! The first episode is titled "The Road To Winning A New Fanbase," and seems to be congratulating itself on acquiring an audience that doesn't entirely overlap with existing Transformers fans. As always, the episode involves a lot of standing around and talking in a language most of the people who visit this site don't speak - but at least it'll only take 3:30 out of your day. If that sounds good to you, keep reading to watch!
This evening, the official Transformers Youtube channel has added a trailer-style video for Combiner Wars Devastator. ...Without showing the toy at all. A collection of G1 animation clips and various pieces of art make up the just-under-a-minute video, throwing this more in the realm of teaser-trailers. But given the date, there's a good chance this is part of a buildup to the street date for preorders, believed to be July 1st. We've embedded the video if you'd like to have a look, meanwhile stay tuned for more updates!
