With music artist Prince's passing, this vaults have been opened to reveal something that is more than meets the ears. It appears the artist was somewhat of fan and then some having composed an entire album that was titled "Pure Energon". According to the fan site Prince.org, the album is in-fact a concept album dedicated to the Transformers series that was recorded with the group, Information Society. A Minneapolis based group who played industrial music, techno, and funk styled music, if that gives us any idea of what the music might have sounded like.



In today's Combaticon Awareness Week article we look at Bruticus Reimagined! The first new attempt to recapture the `80s Combaticon combiner magic was in 2004, at the tail end of Transformers Energon. Ancient guardian of the Super Energon coveted by Megatron, Bruticus Maximus featured interchangeable limbs... two matching pairs of them. Read on for more!



eBayer Lena81822 is at it again, this time posting auctions for Hellwarp's wavemate, Cloud Roadbuster! A recolor of Generations Roadbuster made to resemble Super Link Roadbuster, AKA Energon Ironhide, the figure's looking pretty good! Keep reading to see about a dozen photos!



Thanks to Shout! Factory who have sent us a preview copy of the Transformers Energon DVD Boxed set. Get some first looks inside the complete 7 DVD set. Sorry to say there are no extras or bonus material on this release. Read on to see a preview of the packaging art work, menus, screen caps and details on this release coming May 6, 2014.



The UNICRON Trilogy Continues… Ten years of peace have passed since UNICRON’s destruction, but all of that’s about to change. A mysterious enemy has unleashed the TERRORCONS on the AUTOBOTS’ cities, gathering energy for plans of total domination. Enter a newly revived MEGATRON and the universe is in for a war unlike any it’s ever seen between the AUTOBOTS and the DECEPTICONS. And once again, Earth is caught in the middle!



Shout! Factory have released news and details about the Transformers Energon: The Complete Series DVD Collection. Fans of the Energon series will be able to follow the Unicron Trilogy through this collection that will be released May 6th, followed by the Transformers Energon Volume 1 DVD on May 13th. See the details below for more information.



Just out via Amazon product page just posted are details on the Transformers: Energon The Complete Series from Shout! Factory that will be coming our way on May 6, 2014. The 52 episode set will be offered as a complete set including all the Energon cartoons that will be selling for a list price of $39.97 USD, although Amazon has them discounted now at $27.98 USD. Fans who missed the Paramount release will be able to get these shows on DVD again.



TFormers.com's Featured Toy of the Month is Energon Tow-Line! A decent Combat-class figure (the Deluxe equivalent) with a creative implementation of the Energon Autobots' combining "Powerlinx" gimmick, Tow-Line is also the homage/update you'd never expect to happen: the toy version of G1 Ratchet and Ironhide, complete with battle station!



Much like Armada before it, Transformers Energon is a very divisive toyline, with a majority of the toys requiring degrees of sacrifice to execute line-wide play features. But no matter how you feel about Powerlinking Autobots, it's difficult to dispute that when Energon was on target it really hit its mark dead on. Landmine is probably my favorite example for the strengths that existed by having the Autobot combination gimmick take different forms through the series. Continue reading
