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!
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. Click through to watch!
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!
