Yu Ting An on Youtube has uploaded a set of short videos featuring Platinum Edition Trypticon, showing the toy's motor-driven actions and electronic light up features to all still be completely functioning. As well as giving us good looks at the toy out of package, we can see Trypticon walk, and activate the communication and radar dishes in city and battlestation modes. Finally, the last video demonstrates the small vehicle launcher. This looks like a top notch reissue. Click through to check out all the videos!

"...did Megatron just turn into a gun!?" The "Kids React To" YouTube series has posted a video of kids seeing the G1 cartoon for the first time. The responses vary a lot, and some will probably make you feel extremely old, but some are pretty insightful - like the kid who says all the movie Transformers just look like "evil-looking robot guys." Keep reading to see the video!

The latest episode of QTransformers is up on YouTube! Titled (more or less) "Mystery Of Certain Psychic Powers," this week's guest conversers are Bluestreak and Smokescreen! As always you're not going to get much out of it if you don't speak Japanese, but you can at least see the rest of the Datsuns make their appearance. Keep reading to see!

Bryce Malek, who served as story editor for the first two seasons of the original Transformers cartoon, filmed a short movie showing his workplace at Marvel Productions. Part of the video shows Malek looking over a draft script of The Immobilizer, here titled "The Molecule Immobilizer". While this doesn't offer a lot besides Malek's attempts at basic cinematography, it's an interesting and rare chance to see behind the scenes where the scripts for Transformers were created. Click through and check out the embedded video!

This is a Transformers concept by Andrew Mercer who started working on this concept back in 2011. Knowing that 2014 was the 30th anniversary year, he thought this line would be a cool way to celebrate the rich history of the brand. Figures that could reformat between different Generations in the same way they could Transform from robot to vehicle. Transformat = Reformat + Transform.

Brave Robotics, a company formed by roboticist Kenji Ishida, has partnered with Tomy and Asratec Corp. to create Project J-deite (Pronounced "Jadeite" like the stone and/or the Sailor Moon villain). The goal is to create a real, transforming car robot by the year 2020 - and in service of that goal they have released a video of their first prototype, the 1/4 scale robot named, appropriately enough, Quarter. While Ishida's inspiration was said to be the Transformers-inspired Brave Series, there's little denying Quarter looks a lot like Prowl and the other Datsun-mold Transformers. Keep reading for photos and video of Quarter!

Singapore fan group Planet Iacon posted a link to a Vine showing the transformation of Mega Drive Megatron, the figure that combines the Decepticon leader quite appropriately with the Sega Genesis' Blast Processing. It's a simple affair, just as you'd likely expect from a rectangle. But a really nice looking rectangle! Keep reading to see for yourself!

A couple of short videos have appeared on YouTube that demonstrate the uber-expensive Ultimetal Optimus Prime and some of its special features. Namely, the magnetically attached outer shell and the animated faceplate that moves in time with the Peter Cullen voice recordings. I don't know if it's worth the asking price of roughly $760 USD, but it sure is impressive. Keep reading to see the videos!

z75sales, the eBay seller responsible for the recent G2 Menasor auction that shocked us all with a final price of $26,800, has posted a video detailing the source of the collection and its size and scope. Unsurprisingly, they're liquidating the collection of a former Hasbro/Kenner engineer. These first two videos explain how the authenticity of each piece is guaranteed, and give a look at the original prototype of Beast Wars Optimal Optimus! More videos are promised but for now, check out these two!

Marvel G1/ReGeneration One Artist Andrew Wildman has posted a YouTube video entitled "AllAreOne". It's a quick time-lapse video showing him drawing the final panel on page 10 of ReGeneration One #100, his final piece of art for the series.

YouTube user Wes McCraw has posted a video of Transformers voice actor Peter Cullen in recent recording session for Hasbro's Toys. The recording session was taped at Creekside Audio with Rick Sellers, Wes McCraw, and Peter Cullen. Watch Rick and Wes who direct a recording session with the legendary voice actor to see what its like working behind the scenes with the voice of Optimus Prime.

Next time you happen to be in Northern California, you wanna make a point of driving up Highway 41 South of Fresno, California where a GIANT Transformers Bumblebee rises above the horizon. The creation of artist and fan Tom Rhoads, who built the statue to share his love of these robots with his son. See the local news spot and more details below.

Thanks to Youtube member kbigstone who has posted a very old film from 1983 that shows the toys on display at Tokyo Toy Show in Japan. The special thing about this video is it gives us a look at the pre-Tomy Takara booth where the Diaclone and Microchange action figures were being shown. Supposedly, this is where Hasbro first saw the unique transforming action toys that would eventually be rebranded and marketed in the USA as the Transformers. The Takara toys can be seen at 1:28 in the video below.

No Retro Robot Radio third party show this weekend because of the holiday. Instead, I took a classic Transformers audio story from 1985 that I put it together with scans of the book. I give you seasons greetings with Laserbeak's Fury!

Wheeljack brings a new creation to life in his lab! Happy Halloween! Special thanks to BlastardInc for animating.
