I'll admit I might be a little bit biased since I have what I'd call a greater than average love for G2, but even among the generally high quality of early Transformers toy commercials, G2's have always stood out in particular to me. Discovering that The Spacebridge, purveyors of rare and unusual supplemental Transformers material, had a compilation of these commercials on their Youtube channel gave me cause to revisit them - and share that with you. Said to be sourced from original tape masters, these are likely the highest quality we'll ever see these. Click through to see!
I am a big fan of Transformers licensed merchandise from the past and nothing is more tasty than the vintage goodness that was created by the truckload for the Generation 1 cartoons.
Speaking of goodness and trucks, you may have found these More Than Meets the Ice Cream treats by Peters on the neighborhood Ice Cream trucks in Australia. But they are likely news to fans in the USA. What makes these so delightful. Is they are actually ice cream in disguise, with a mystery flavor or candy embedded in the center such as bubblegum or caramel.

Hasbro's Portuguese website has revealed "Playskool Friends" style figures of the Transformers - small, single piecem friendly, safe figurines for very young children. The website listing describes these as a Collectible Edition, and does not seem to use the Playskool Friends branding in association with them perhaps indicating a different intent for release. Pictures of Optimus and Bumblebee are shown, and the listing also references Arcee, as well as Chase, Boulder, Blades, and Heatwave - the cast of Rescue Bots
as part of the overall assortment. We've mirrored the images, keep reading to see!

IDW Publishing tweeted an image of the cover to the upcoming one-shot The Transformers vs GI Joe: The Movie
comic book. The official comic book adaptation of the (non-existent) movie adaptation of the original comic book, this offers a brand new adventure that surely defies any prediction given Tom Scioli is still at the helm, and - as RAC often humorously remarked - probably doing everything up to and including milling the paper himself to see this last story produced. We've mirrored the cover image, click through to take a look!
