It's time! Machinima's Titans Return
series, the sequel to their much talked-about Combiner Wars
cartoon, has begun its run on go90 with two episodes, "Aftermath and Rebirth" and "Our Heroes Respond." What's changed and what's as you'd expect from watching Combiner Wars
? Only one way to find out: keep reading for links to the episodes!
Machinima has posted the trailer for the Titans Return
miniseries to their Facebook page today. The series, which stars Wil Wheaton, Jason David Frank, Peter Cullen, and more - follows up on the Combiner Wars
miniseries - and visually looks about the same so far. This trailer also gives us a hint as to Starscream's ultimate fate... keep reading to watch!
Newly added today to Hasbro's Youtube channel, the entire series of Machinima's Combiner Wars is freely available to view. With Titans Return debuting via go90 in North America in just about two weeks, this is an opportunity to catch up to the story before it resumes in this year's show. At an average of about five and a half minutes per episode, if you've never watched it before, we can definitely promise it will be an experience that lasts about 47 minutes. We've embedded the series playlist in the full post, so click through if you want to give it a watch!
Following on from our article describing a behind the scenes video introduced by FJ DeSanto and Adam Beechen that was published through the go90 platform, we now have a Facebook video version of that to bring you which can be viewed globally. In the video you'll see a quick sample of animation from the show, including dialogue by Wil Wheaton as Perceptor, plus some recording booth clips of other new cast additions to the web series. The video is embedded below - check it out!
With the debut of the Titans Return webseries just a few weeks away, we have a short behind the scenes video presented by Adam Beechen and FJ DeSanto, talking primarily about the process of recording the dialogue for the episodes - allowing a perfect chance to advertise their celebrity casting, too. The video is on the go90 streaming platform, and so is likely region locked. Until we learn of an alternative official upload of this, you can find a few screencaps from the video in our gallery, featuring a good look at Perceptor from the short animation clips shown in the video.
A couple years ago,
we reported on something then known as "The Transformers Experience" that was being promised by Victory Hill Exhibitions. That project seems to now be taking shape as Transformers: Autobots Alliance,
and we've found clips of the voice cast, the making of the score with composer Ram Khatabakhsh, and even a look at the CGI model of Primus that will figure into the event. Keep reading for more!
We're excited to launch a new feature this week, called "Why, Transformers?" - or "WhyTF?" for catchier branding purposes. This new video series features Eric Crownover (aka EricCrowbar) joining Chris (aka ExVee) to discuss a question each week around a topic of interest. For the first episode, Chris and Eric talk about why we believe there were once going to be as many as four Titans Return box sets, and why we ultimately only got two - even though those two that came out look to have performed significantly better than the Combiner Wars sets. Click through to watch the episode right now!
Thanks to RFC's diecast, we've got a quick video on his RFC Reviews channel showing the Power of The Primes toys on display during Hascon. One detail visible in this video that seems to have largely been overlooked is an Enigma of Combination
shown at Grimlock's feet. Like the various forms of Matrix included with Leader toys, the Engimas are the special accessory component for the Voyager figures that within the function are what permit them to combine with the Deluxes. You can find the video embedded below, and a screenshot showing the Enigma. Keep reading!
Thanks to Unicron.com, any of us that didn't make the trip to Hascon this weekend can now check out the Prime Wars Trilogy panel in video form on Facebook. This panels covers aspects of design in the toys, toy packaging, the current mobile games, and Machinima's efforts in bringing entries of this trilogy to animation, and that includes a look at the Titans Return series they'll be debuting in November. You can find the panel video embedded below!
With the significant differences between Hasbro and TakaraTomy versions of both Metroplex and Fortress Maximus - oh and of course can't forget the Devastators! -, many have been wondering just what to expect with the Japanese release of Trypticon. While clearly nowhere near as different as the prior Titans, photos at least let people identify where different shades of colors had been used, right? To settle the question, Trevor Hopkins put a video on Youtube that explains all of what's different, and how much is in fact the same. Click through to see that video and find out the relevant details!
We'll be coming back to the SDCC exclusives
shortly. But before that, I wanted to share the unboxing of Siege on Cybertron, the second Titans Return box set that we've all been eagerly anticipating. It just came in this week at BigBadToyStore
, which when combined with the SDCC exclusives dropping made this a potentially very expensive week! Check out the unboxing video embedded below.
Facebook page has posted videos from ACGHK, one of the major Hong Kong shows! The videos below show off the Hasbro booth among other things, which details most of this year's Titans Return offerings up through wave 5 along with Transformers: The Last Knight
and a look at this year's SDCC exclusives. And a lot more Transformers-related videos from the show, so keep reading to see!
We're still jammin' at SDCC 2017 with more of what you are looking for. We know you cannot be here, so we bring the show to you with these handy videos of the actual toy displays that you can watch. The next best thing to being there. Note, use the playback speed feature on YouTube if the video moves too fast for you.
Hasbro's John Warden talks Power of the Primes, and boy is the Power of the Primes
gimmick a doozy, integrating with each size-class in different ways. He also mentions an incredibly cool feature that Rodimus Prime - and presumably all the Leader class figures - will contain. Keep reading for video and info!
The official Transformers Facebook page has posted quick promotional videos for two of the Transformers exclusives that will be available for purchase at the Hasbro Toy Shop booth this weekend at SDCC.
