More Generation 1
If you're in the LA area on Saturday, March 7th, you may want to see about getting tickets to The Transformers: The Movie
! The Egyptian Theatre will be showing the 1986 film in a double-feature with GI Joe: The Movie from the following year. Also in attendance will be crew members from both films, including TF:TM's story consultant Flint Dille. But perhaps most interestingly, while the GI Joe movie will be shown from a Blu-Ray source, Transformers
will use a 35mm print of the film! Keep reading for more info!
Genetic of the TFND Forums has posted 22 photos of Combiner Wars Breakdown! The figure is looking good and sports both a gun/sword and a port on the back to use his hand/foot/gun as a pair of back-mounted cannons. Keep reading to see for yourself!
There was a lot of information delivered from Toy Fair. Some of it came as reports from those who attended, but most of it was in the form of photos. With so much out there, it can be a little hard to keep up with what's what, so we're going to bring you the highlights of the coverage and break things down for you. Is Constructicon articulation really that limited? And why are they so big? How small is Minimus Ambus? Why is Defensor sad? Click through for the answers to these questions and more!
Our sponsor TFSource has just let us know that they've received a supply of the Sega Genesis edition of Mega Drive Megatron and a limited supply remains after filling standing preorders. This figure modifies the Mega Drive figure with Sega Genesis emblems more familiar to people in the United States and replaces the red on the robot deco with Decepticon purple, among other cosmetic changes. This run was limited to 1000 over all, so there won't be many available from US seller, so act fast!
The Spacebridge on Facebook has posted another fun rarity for everyone to see. This time they have pieces of Action Master concept art for figures that never got produced. Though most like Superion or Predaking have been seen a number of times over the years, art featuring Ultra Magnus and his large vehicle is something even I'm not very familiar with. If Optimus Prime had the Armored Convoy, might we call Magnus's vehicle the Powered Convoy? Click through to check out the photos!
Ben Yee of BWTF got the opportunity to sit down with Transformers Senior Brand Director Jerry Jivoin at Toy Fair, and they talked about Combiner Wars, how it came about, and how the decisions were made. Jivoin says that beginning with Wave 3, each wave will be dedicated to a single combiner, in this case Defensor! Also, did you know that Devastator was almost six LEADER class toys?

Amazon Japan has posted their preorder page for Unite Warriors Superion! The list price is given as 16,200 Yen, which is about $140 at the current exchange rate, but those who are able to preorder through Amazon Japan will be able to get it for 12,316 Yen, or about $110. That should maybe negate most of the shipping, if you've got a middleman who can do that for you- but still, that is a lot
of money to pay for a Slingshot figure. Keep reading for a link to see the listing for yourself!
This week's episode of QTransformers is as nonsensical as ever for a non-speaker of Japanese, but does seem to focus on explorers in some way, as the title implies. That said, you do at least get to see QTransformers Sideswipe and Sunstreaker joining the conversation, so at least there's new character designs to see. Keep reading to watch!

Now he's tracked down photos of metal lunchboxes, some refrigerator magnets, and a deck of playing cards, all G1-themed!
