With the newly restored Blu-Ray edition of Transformers: The Movie rolling out to retail. It seems the fans are digging more lore behind the Transformers Generation 1 goodness.
Check out this new video from YouTuber channel, I Like To Make Stuff, on how to make your own 3D Printed Model of the Transformers Matrix of Leadership. The video is quite detailed with tips on how to print, finish and paint your very own movie prop.
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.

It's that time again! We're up to episode 4 of 8 of the Combiner Wars mini-series, and this one introduces Megatron into the mix. Where has he been since the end of the war? What's he up to? Is he more a Frank Welker or a Corey Burton Megatron? We've got a go90 link for US readers and a YouTube embed for everyone else, so keep reading to find out!
It's that time again: the latest episode of Combiner Wars, "The Duel," has gone live on the go90 platform! In this episode, Windblade meets Optimus Prime, and... well, look at the title. As always, we cannot embed go90's video, but keep reading for a link to the episode!
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! This SD figure is taller and wider than a Voyager class Transformer and has a ridiculous amount of detail, articulation, and even an infrared remote feature! Click through to see for yourself!
In a throwback to G1 and the Microchange toys that preceded it, Xiaomi vice president Hugo Barra has announced a new collaboration with Hasbro that sees Soundwave becoming a tablet! Namely, the Mi Pad 2, a tablet popular enough in China to supplant Apple's iPad. The new Soundwave features a 30-step conversion from its painstakingly authentic 7mm thick (nonfunctional) Tablet Mode. The price is set at approximately $20 USD. Keep reading for photos and a video!
Coming by way of Taiguer on Facebook, we've got a really entertaining video tonight. It seems that for a recent auto show, Kia Motors Corporation developed quite a display piece: a fully transforming vehicle! The SUV is seen to split its panels and (very) slowly rise to a standing posture. The "vehicle mode" is of course just an SUV shell around the movable frame, but it's interesting how the final result bears more than a little resemblance to early Diaclone car robot designs. We have the video embedded, so click through to check it out!
"Autobots, you have the power to combine!"
The official Transformers YouTube channel has posted a new TV spot for Combiner Wars! While the only CG featured is of the Superion from last year's ads, the live action footage highlights Sky Reign as he prepares to do battle with Bruticus. Click through to watch it!
The latest work from harrisloureiro has just been posted to Youtube. This time the skilled stop motion animator presents a fight between Warpath, as played by Badcube's Wardog, and Astrotrain using DX9's Chigurh. We're always really happy to see new works from this producer, and this latest video certainly does not disappoint - except maybe that the video doesn't run longer! We have it embedded below, so click through and enjoy!
Twitter users @Chohenken and @herakuwa, along with YouTuber chang hocchi, have posted photos and videos from the Transformers Lab roadshow in Japan! New images and footage of TAV29 Bumblebee Supreme Mode, TAV30 Battle Grimlock, TAV33 Optimus Prime Supreme Mode, as well as snapshots of MP-28 Hot Rod and MP-29 Shockwave! Keep reading to see it all!
