RAC reviews SDCC Tablet Soundwave! It's a nice figure, about Voyager sized, and you might think the articulation is a mite weird and limited in places - but that's a tradeoff for its one trick. And what a trick. Click here to read the review!



Soundwave is an impressive figure! It turns into a super-thin tablet and amazingly, is not really frustrating to transform in any way. The only downsides: it doesn't look much like Soundwave, and that backpack is so close to being a fun little Laserbeak figure. Keep reading to see 65 images of Soundwave!



TFND has posted a wealth of images from their 12th annual event in Taipei, and somebody brought a lot of interesting toys to the con, some as yet unreleased! Most notably on that front there's MP Delta Magnus, and Unite Warriors Computron standing shoulder to shoulder with his Combiner Wars counterpart! (And stealing his hands and feet!) All that and more after the jump, so keep reading!



Just a simple reminder that if you want SDCC Fortress Maximus, the Titan Force boxset with Sentinel Prime, Brainstorm, and Windblade, Tablet Soundwave, or the Transformers And GI Joe boxset, today is the day to get them on HasbroToyShop! They all read "out of stock" as of this writing, but should be available for purchase later today. Keep reading for links to all four sets as well as a general link for Hasbro's SDCC exclusives!



Artist James Raiz has posted a video of the highlights of his trip to Shanghai for Cybertron Con 2016! The 4-minute video gives us a taste of the sights and sounds of the con as well as guest appearances by artists Alex Milne and Sara Pitre-Durocher and writer John Barber, as well as Peter Cullen! Keep reading to see the video!



TFExpo has let us know that their successful charity auction will be returning for TFExpo 2016, happening this weekend in Wichita, Kansas! Celebrity guest Michael Bell will be on hand to emcee the auction, whose proceeds will benefit K-9 Karma Animal Advocates Inc., a pet rescue operation in Wichita. The auction will then be followed by a theatrical showing of The Transformers: The Movie! Click on through for more details.



Autobase Aichi has collected more photos of Cybertron Con from Weibo! Presumably still in the setup phase, the con has some interesting displays and art pieces on hand - but what you are likely more interested in is the presence of Titans Return Leader-Class Sixshot on the Generations display table! Hasbro's getting really good at parceling out reveals to their various conventions and shows, so it shouldn't surprise us too much that the official Chinese Transformers con gets at least one. Keep reading to see!



Autobase Aichi has shared images from the (currently inaccessible) 52toys Weibo account of the setup phase of Cybertron Con 2016! Most notably is the person-sized Fortress Maximus, complete with what look like working slides on the front of the city-mode Titan. It's a really impressive piece! Keep reading for the photos and more details on Cybertron Con!



HasbroToyShop has posted an FAQ to their website detailing the availability of Hasbro's San Diego Comic-Con 2016 exclusives! The Titan Force set starring Brainstorm, Windblade, and Sentinel Prime, the MiPad Soundwave figure, and the SDCC exclusive version of Fortress Maximus will all go up on their site August 9th! Keep reading for a link to the FAQ and the pertinent excerpts.



Site sponsor Robotkingdom has sent out their weekly newsletter! This week of course there's a focus on SDCC and the related exclusives. Shipping August 3rd, SDCC Fortress Maximus, the Titan Force boxset, and the Soundwave tablet are all up for preorder now along with a lot more. Keep reading for details!



Thanks to an unsourced photo posted on imgur, we have a look at the back of box for Voyager Class Megatron, seen at the Hasbro Entertainment Brands Breakfast event this morning at SDCC. The image is just slightly too small to make out the brief bio text, but what we're really interested in is the cross sell, featuring Titan Master Fangry, Deluxe Triggerhappy, Voyager Optimus Prime, and Leader Class Sixshot! Some of these had come up as leaks before, but this is our first basically official show of these upcoming toys. Keep reading for the mirrored image!



Hasbro is making its awaited return to Comic-Con International in San Diego, California. The company’s portfolio of brands will be represented in and around the convention, and will include TRANSFORMERS, MY LITTLE PONY, G.I. JOE, MICRONAUTS, VISIONARIES, PIE FACE and WIZARDS OF THE COAST as well as partner brands including DREAMWORKS ANIMATION’S TROLLS, YO-KAI WATCH, alongside STAR WARS, MARVEL’S AVENGERS, DISNEY’S MOANA, DISNEY’S ELENA OF AVALOR, DISNEY’S DESCENDANTS, and more.



Diecast from Radio Free Cybertron is at TFCon Toronto, and he's sent back photos of the display cases showing off a wealth of unofficial third-party merchandise! Among the highlights are a new IDW-inspired Optimus Prime and Megatron in Masterpiece scale, as well as our first look at the Garatron G.O.D.-01 Thunderstorm, AKA IDW Thunderwing! Keep reading to see all the photos.



Today Hasbro unveiled additional event details of the 2016 TRANSFORMERS Cybertron Con, and the lineup of writers, designers, voice actors and limited edition merchandise is sure to get Transformers fans excited! Hosted at the Shanghaimart Expo in Shanghai from July 29th to 31st, the convention will be the biggest Transformers fan celebration ever held in China.



Comic-Con's official website has started filling in schedule information for the many numerous panels that will be occurring at SDCC a little later this month. Thus far Thursday is the only day showing Transformers-relevant events, for which three are currently set to take place. Of particular note is that so far none of the panels listed give any specific indication of product reveals. Will there be more panels revealed for the weekend, or might Hasbro be planning a fan media event outside the walls of SDCC to handle this? We'll find out pretty soon. Meanwhile, keep reading to see the schedule information!
