Finally! Loopaza Mega Store has posted a video to their Facebook page showing off the sound chip in LG31 Fortress Maximus' head, Cerebros/Fortress!. As hoped and rumored, it does in fact have a short version of the Headmasters theme! The rest of the voices are Japanese dialogue (of course), with lines such as "Transform!", "I am Fortress,"
and of course "Head On!"

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. Great care was taken to produce the highest-quality image, and special care was taken to make sure Hot Rod was properly magenta. Check out the videos after the jump!
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!
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 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.
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.
Kids Logic has once again provided us with a review sample - this time for their gigantic Mecha Nations Devastator!
