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.
The Transformers Official YouTube channel has posted a commerical for Combiner Wars Defensor! Done in the enhanced stop motion style of the previous Superion ad, the commercial features some really nice little touches, like Groove bouncing slightly on Defensor's chest as the combination is completed.

Voice actors Frank Welker (Megatron) and Peter Cullen (Optimus Prime) are brought together for Texas Comicon 2015 in a single panel to answer questions but also crack jokes and have everyday conversation with each other as the voices of Transformers Megatron and Optimus Prime. Hope you enjoyed the video that you can watch below now.
Ever wondered about the new kinds of Transformers introduced past 1986? Pretenders? Headmasters? Powermasters, or Godmasters as they're known in Japan? So does Lockdown. Drift helps lay out the post Season 3 Japanese TV series in this week's episode of QTransformers II, and while Lockdown is typically confused, Bumblebee seems to think it's all just one big bizarre adventure. Click through to see the episode (in Japanese without subtitles)!
This week's episode of QTransformers II is titled something like "The Road To Explaining The Movie Very Well," and it will probably not surprise you to learn that this week's fourth `bot is none other than Rodimus! Since it's in Japanese there's no telling for most of us just how
well they explained The Transformers: The Movie
...but Lockdown doesn't seem to respond to their explanations very well. Click through to watch!
Seibertron has posted to their YouTube channel footage from the Hasbro Panel showing a Combiner Wars promotional video.

Yu Ting An on Youtube has uploaded a set of short videos featuring Platinum Edition Trypticon, showing the toy's motor-driven actions and electronic light up features to all still be completely functioning. As well as giving us good looks at the toy out of package, we can see Trypticon walk, and activate the communication and radar dishes in city and battlestation modes. Finally, the last video demonstrates the small vehicle launcher. This looks like a top notch reissue. Click through to check out all the videos!
"...did Megatron just turn into a gun!?"
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!
From the Youtube channel harrisloureiro who we've featured in the past comes another outstanding work of stop-motion toy animation. Transformers Generation features lots of Masterpieces and comparable third party figures in a 15 minute battle sequence that's unbelievably fluid and natural. Reportedly taking six months to complete production, this is worth every moment of your time to check out. Click through to see the embedded video - you'll be glad you did!
The latest episode of the QTransformers Animation is up! Titled "Mystery of Mystery of Convoy," it guest-stars the player characters from the original Famicom game, Ultra Magnus and Rodimus Prime!

The latest episode of QTransformers is up on YouTube! Titled (more or less) "Mystery Of Certain Psychic Powers," this week's guest conversers are Bluestreak and Smokescreen!

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!
