Thanks to the Transformers collectors site Robot Points who have share some of the history and mystery behind the Beast Machines / RiD Megabolt Megatron: Concept and the evolution of this very unique figure. Fans of Beast Machines remember the pleasure of finding out about the new Megabolt figure that was announced by Hasbro only the followed by the pain of the cancellation at the end of the series. Luckily, it was subsequently released in the following Rotbots in Disguise series. What a lot of us didn't know was there were two designs on this figure.
This week Radio Free Cybertron speaks with Garry Chalk (from our 2009 interview), Marty Isenberg (from our 2011 interview.) We also have the newest Transformers Rewind: Hoist Goes Hollywood as well as Rob Springer and RFC RTM1!
Honestly, I don't like to report on these Trademark things as it usually ends up being a lot of speculation.

Got the Beast Machines box set in this weekend (I know it is late, should have gotten it months ago) and I have watched nearly all the episodes and only got 5 more to go. And it has been a long time I enjoyed a Transformers show that much. I will have to admit, at first I did not like it when I saw it years back (from a cd-rom which did not do it justice) because of the really weird robot modes the Maximals got. They still take getting used to. That aside nearly everything is perfect about it. Read More

TV Shows On DVD reports a few new findings on the Beast Machines Complete Series DVD. First, Rhino Entertainment has sent out the sell sheet for the box set, giving an indication that this box set will indeed be coming out fairly soon, which is slated for February 28, 2006 as have been previously reported. Also, many of you may remember the Amazon.com listing for the box set that makes it look like it already shipped on its original release date. However, the product was always out of stock. Don't be confused anymore: Amazon has re-listed the item with a nice beefy 30% discount ($59.95 down to $41.99). Read more for older information on extras.

In addition, there will be commentary tracks by the writers and interviews with the voice actors. Check out TVShowsOnDVD for all the info on what looks to be a great set!
