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.

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. The turnaround view videos feature the black and gold Primitive Skateboarding redeco of Titans Return Powermaster Optimus, and the special edition Voyager The Last Knight Optimus with its scrap of tire-rubber from a screen-used vehicle in the movie, complete with certificate of authenticity. You can check out the two videos embedded below!
The Transformers Facebook page has shared the promotional Designer Desk video for Trypticon, showing off some of the features to be found in the latest Titan Class figure, about to be released at retail in the US. While at this point none of the highlights are new information for us, we do get a chance to see Trypticon briefly with Wave 5 products on and around for scale, and an "outtakes" segment at the very end of John Warden goofing around with Trypticon. You can find the video embedded below.
The official transofmers page has posted a fun new video for the Transformers Titans Return fans. With the comment, "It’s not an earthquake, it’s the new neighbor." Watch and see what Optimus Prime has in store in the video after the jump.
Ben Montano and John Warden have made a new announcement video for the official Transformers Facebook page to give us more details about Transformers fan events at HasCon! Among the things promised are a Stan Bush concert, Q&A with the Hasbro Design Team, a HasCon exclusive figure, and most excitingly, an advance look at the 2018 Power of the Primes
Generations subline! Keep reading to see the video.
Summer is fast approaching, and there's no better proof of that than early samples of the year's Titan Class figure starting to get out. We've got a quick video tonight showing off some of the basics of Trypticon's dinosaur mode, including a little of the leg articulation and deployable weapons, plus a transformation demo of Full Tilt. We were already expecting Trypticon to start hitting by July, and seeing finished production pieces like this just reinforces that idea. Click through to watch the video, embedded below.
TakaraTomy's April Fool's Day prank seems to be not bothering to region-lock a video for once! In a segment apparently titled "Tateishi Gakuen," a pair of hosts take a look at Legends Dinosaurer, AKA Trypticon! After marveling at the size of the figure and using the transformation hinges in the shoulder to imitate a frilled lizard, they get down to asking a very important question: how many Headmasters/Titan Masters can Trypticon eat in one sitting? Keep reading to see the video and find out the answer!
This is a lot closer to what RAC was hoping for from a G1-styled Megatron than Combiner Wars Megatron ever got. Improving the paint and plastic tolerances would make it the clear victor for best Generations Megatron since the Classics version. Click here to read and watch the full review!
