The "Kids React To" YouTube series has posted a video of kids seeing the G1 cartoon for the first time. The responses vary a lot, and some will probably make you feel extremely
old, but some are pretty insightful - like the kid who says all the movie Transformers just look like "evil-looking robot guys." Keep reading to see the video!

As always you're not going to get much out of it if you don't speak Japanese, but you can at least see the rest of the Datsuns make their appearance. Keep reading to see!
This week's episode of QTransformers is as nonsensical as ever for a non-speaker of Japanese, but does seem to focus on explorers in some way, as the title implies. That said, you do at least get to see QTransformers Sideswipe and Sunstreaker joining the conversation, so at least there's new character designs to see. Keep reading to watch!

Bryce Malek, who served as story editor for the first two seasons of the original Transformers cartoon, filmed a short movie showing his workplace at Marvel Productions. Part of the video shows Malek looking over a draft script of The Immobilizer, here titled "The Molecule Immobilizer".

This is a Transformers concept by Andrew Mercer who started working on this concept back in 2011. Knowing that 2014 was the 30th anniversary year, he thought this line would be a cool way to celebrate the rich history of the brand. Figures that could reformat between different Generations in the same way they could Transform from robot to vehicle. Transformat = Reformat + Transform.
Today we celebrate the birth of Combiners in Transformers, for on December 15th, 1984 heavy Metal War premiered, and with it came the debut of Devastator who would be just the first of many teams of combining Transformers.

If you're still waiting to find the toys, then relive the episode that started it all with Radio Free Cybertron's Transformers Rewind segment featuring Heavy Metal War, embedded below!
Brave Robotics, a company formed by roboticist Kenji Ishida, has partnered with Tomy and Asratec Corp. to create Project J-deite (Pronounced "Jadeite" like the stone and/or the Sailor Moon
villain). The goal is to create a real, transforming car robot by the year 2020 - and in service of that goal they have released a video of their first prototype, the 1/4 scale robot named, appropriately enough, Quarter. While Ishida's inspiration was said to be the Transformers-inspired Brave Series, there's little denying Quarter looks a lot like Prowl and the other Datsun-mold Transformers. Keep reading for photos and video of Quarter!
