Pete's Robot Convention makes its inaugural launch this year, taking the Robot Convention concept back to its roots with a renewed focus on the vendors and the thousands of amazing robot toys they will have for sale, while also providing a great venue for fans to come together and make it the social event that we've all come to enjoy. And like we said, there will be thousands of robot toys for sale! Read on for full details.
Autobase Aichi has shared an image of MP-34 Cheetor's Hasbro Asia bonus! We've changed over from coins to small metal figurines this year, and Cheetor comes with figure #2, Optimus Primal! Likewise, site sponsor Robotkingdom has added a photo of #3, Ultra Magnus, to the preorder page for MP Grapple. Keep reading to see both images mirrored here!
Radio Free Cybertron has posted a new RFC Extra episode featuring audio recorded during the Transformers Brand Team Q&A session held during the Saturday presentation at Toy Fair in New York. Recorded by RFC's diecast, and Anthony from TFU.info, the half hour-ish segment digs in to some interesting info that may not have otherwise made its way out so far. We've picked out highlights from the session and summarized them in the full article below, and you can find a link to the RFC post so you can listen to the original event. Keep reading!
In the second of a three-part series on Toy Fair predictions, RAC focuses on less sure things: the things we might
see. We know many of these are coming, but we don't know when,
or what they'll look like, or many of the specifics outside of a name and pricepoint. So what are the most intriguing "maybes" to us for Toy Fair 2017? Keep reading and find out!
First seen at Botcon this year, the Platinum Edition Autobot Heroes set collects the Generations mold of much of the headline cast of the 1986 Transformers: The Movie with expanded decos, as well as a reproduction movie poster. This boxset, exclusive to Target in the US, is now available through that retailer's website to ship today. It's listed at $149.99, plus tax, and qualifies for free shipping. Keep reading to find the order page link below!
Slated for 2017 and with no details yet given, it's far too early to know what shape Hasbro's new Transformers Fan Club will take. But even if we don't know what it will
be, we probably all have thoughts on what it should
be. RAC definitely does - and he feels the time is ripe for a change. Keep reading for his thoughts on the issue, this time written in the first
The official TakaraTomy Transformers Twitter account, @TF_pr, would like to remind you that Unite Warriors Lynxmaster is due very soon! Lynxmaster is the TakaraTomy version of Sky Reign, the Sky Lynx-based combiner from Combiner Wars. Keep reading to see the image!
After nearly a year of speculation stemming from Hasbro's termination of the BotCon license, we finally have concrete info on what happens next: HasCon
, Hasbro's official convention happening between 9/8/17 and 9/10/17 in Providence, Rhode Island! Few details are available yet, but the HasCon site is live and (supposedly) accepting signups to keep posted on the details of the con. Keep reading for the official press release!
Tomorrow evening will see the doors open on Hasbro's yearly night before NYCC presentation where we get a preview of things to come in the following months. This is our last big look ahead before Toy Fair in February. Last year's presentation was the official debut of Titans Return - after an unintentional slip of some of its art assets at Botcon 2015. It was a major reveal that sparked a frenzy of excitement and interest all through our fandom, from the very first blurry images taken through a thick glass door before the event opened. So it's only natural to hope that we get something similarly big this time around. Keep reading to see our predictions!
Hasbro wrapped up their final Botcon product preview panel this year with a tease of the long-awaited Overlord. Now thanks to frequent source Mr. Chaos
who has relayed more store computer info, we have confirmation of that figure and its status as a Leader Class figure! Overlord's assortment is to come after Sixshot, which should mean wave 4. More interesting is the other figure in the assortment, listed as Sky Shadow. Could this be the name for Sixshot's recolor/retool? Or might this be an all new mold? With luck, New York Comic Con may tell the tale in another month's time!
Nosecone is just Brawl with the drill we saw previously on BotCon 2016's General Ramhorn. But he fixes the problems with Brawl's execution just as Ramhorn did: namely the floppy, horrible waist. It's now just weird instead of weird and not functioning properly. Plus, if you were using Computron's leg as reference, you may
have been doing vehicle mode wrong. I was! Click here to see the 52-image gallery!
Hey, it's the guy who appeared in one entire issue of the Marvel G1 comic! Scrounge was a tremendous surprise when he was revealed at BotCon 2016 as a recolor of Legends class Cosmos & Payload. But if obscure characters weren't enough for you, Scrounge is partnered with Cybaxx, an entirely new guy. And while he may no longer have his special arm (there is no other like it), Scrounge and Cybaxx combine to make Computron's Strafe arm that much more special.

While we were all focusing on SDCC and Wonderfest, Hisashi Yuki managed to more or less sneak one by us! Promising many new products on display at Wonder Festival 2016, Yuki posted a new photo this past Friday of Lynxmaster, the Unite Warriors release of Combiner Wars Sky Reign that swaps out Smokescreen in favor of Ratchet. Keep reading to see!
It's the question that's been on all our minds since Liokaiser was stealthily revealed at BotCon: what will the individual robots' names be? Some got to keep their Japanese names, some got riffs on those, one got just plain left out in favor of a Mini-Con... and one got a pretty significant rename from another Japanese-only character. Keep reading to see!

So, uh, what the heck? We got a good firsthand look at all the souvenir figures the Transformers Collector's Club offered at BotCon 2016, and there was no sign of a Bluestreak. But here, off of Chinese Auction Site TaoBao, is that very figure. What's up with that? No idea, but you can get a look at the figure by clicking through to see the images!
