Rovio has published a pair of new videos to support the upcoming Angry Birds Transformers. One is a nifty little retro-style animated video done more or less in the style of the original G1 animated opening. The second is a look at the music of the game, composed by none other than Vince DiCola of 1986's The Transformers: The Movie! Keep reading to see both videos!
Autobase Aichi has posted images of the Asia exclusive throne that comes with the reissue of MP-08X King Grimlock. It's revealed to be made of a very thin plastic, probably not much thicker than the trays that larger toys traditionally come packaged in. Kind of a shame, but still not too bad for a giveaway item with a Masterpiece toy. Keep reading to see all the photos!
CBMTrailers has posted a featurette from the upcoming Age of Extinction DVD/Blu-Ray release. "Creating the Dinobots" is a two-minute short talking about the design concepts behind the Dinobots and the big battle at the end of the film, including the western theme the team was going for. Keep reading to see the video!

Autobase Aichi has posted images of the cover art for the upcoming anniversary collections of Transformers music. Music Matrix 30th is a DVD featuring art of all the Japanese G1 Autobot Supreme Commanders, and the Song Masterpiece CD features Optimus Prime at ease, leaning on his ion blaster. Both collections will be released in Japan on September 17th. Keep reading to see both covers!
Takara's Hisashi Yuki has posted images of Masterpiece Star Saber's Brain of Courage to Twitter, and it's pretty small! It's shown next to the original version, as well as next to Diaclone pilot figures (which for reference are about 1" tall, or the right size to fit in all those empty seats on your G1 Transformers). It's also compared to one of those figures in the seat on Super Fire Convoy/RID Optimus Prime! Keep reading to see all the tininess for yourself!
