TakaraTomy designer Shogo Hasui has just tweeted (bilingually!) that he'll be attending Comic-Con International in San Diego as the designer of Combiner Wars Titan Class Devastator! He'll be on-hand at the Hasbro booth during the con. Keep reading for confirmation!



Entertainment Earth has just posted that in association with Hasbro, they'll be handing out free diorama backdrops based on either Transformers or My Little Pony with a purchase from the EE booth at SDCC next month. The Transformers backdrop is based on the Autobot Command Center from the original cartoon, and measures 9.5 x 11 inches, making it suitable for use with a wide range of toys. Keep reading to see the images!



The official SDCC 2015 site has published details on two more Transformers panels that will be holding at SDCC this year. Following all the fun on Thursday, Friday just got a lot more interesting with a Women of Transformers panel that will discuss the debut of the all-female Transformers Combiner Victorion, what's been going on in the comics and much more with artists, writers, and special guests!



With Botcon now just a lingering memory and Team FunPub back safely at home, they've taken stock of the exclusives for this year and found leftovers of basically everything to make available for purchase on the club's online store. While naturally the attendee freebie figure is not among them, everything else is currently available for purchase. If you couldn't make Botcon itself but still want some of the exclusives, head on over and take advantage of the leftovers while they last! Keep reading for a full list.



The official SDCC 2015 site has published details on the Transformers panels they will be holding at SDCC this year. Get ready for Transformers panels that will be held on Thursday July 9th including Generations at 11am and Robots in Disguise 2015 at 3pm. We are guessing the RID panel will have some voice actors as well. Read on for the details on the Transformers and other panels announced. Read on for the full details.



While there were no new items added today, we did swing by Hasbro's display case one more time to get another round of high quality photos of the upcoming figures on display. With added looks at Sky Reign and Sky Lynx, the Combaticons, new Legends like Shockwave and Buzzsaw, plus RID Mini-Cons and recolors, we have almost 100 more photos to keep you in anticipation of all these releases. Click through and check them out!



On Sunday afternoon, the Art of Transformers panel took place, though more accurately it could have been called "The Artists Of Transformers" as it took place in the form of a question and answer session with the artists of both linework and coloring in the Transformers titles. Click through and keep reading to check out our rundown of the events of the panel!



The official Transformers Facebook page has posted a message inducting Megatron voice actor Frank Welker into the Hall of Fame! But that's not the only inductee - attendees of the HoF dinner have also reported on the other three nominations, chosen by Fan Vote! To see the individual robot, combiner, and musical act inducted, keep reading!



On Saturday at Botcon 2015, I had the chance to speak with Jerry Jivoin, John Warden, and Ben Montano from Hasbro. In the interview, I ask about some elements of the current design process in Generations and Robots in Disguise, planning for new reveals, and more! Click through now and check out the embedded video. As always, our thanks to the guys from Hasbro for taking time out to talk with the fans!

The BotCon 2015 Transformers Collectors Club Panel has just completed. Get a look a the many image slides and updates from the panel. We will have report to post soon, in mean time get a look at the design specs for this year's figures and what's to come from the TFCC in near future.



UPDATED with additional photos! - Fresh from the display case we've got our first round of photos from Hasbro's Saturday update. Getting our first look at the Combaticons and Bruticus, new Legends like Buzzsaw, and Voyager Sky Lynx, the core to Sky Reign with the second wave Autobot car limbs. We'll have more a little later today, but for now get in the gallery, have a look and begin the anticipation!



We're live at Botcon 2015 right now, and getting set up to bring you minute by minute coverage of Hasbro's Product Preview Panel starting in just a few minutes at 1pm Eastern Time. Of course pictures will not be allowed during the event, but keep watching the full article page as we'll be updating throughout the run of the panel! Click the title link and get ready!



Today during the Private Sales Room Experience, we were able to visit Hasbro's display case and get a good look at Titan Class Devastator - and the SDCC exclusive version. The chrome on the SDCC example hasn't been well represented in photos, but may not satisfy the concerns of those worried about the chrome, and unfortunately they seem to share the same basic green plastic color. We also got to see the Combiner Hunters set, which comes off very well in person. Click through to check these out, and come back for much more tomorrow!

Two new images have shown up from BotCon 2015! One is of the Kreon boxset available at the show, with a theme of "Earth's Most Wanted." The set is an assortment of entertainingly semi-obscure G1 characters plus fan-favorite Sentinel Prime and Headmaster from Transformers Animated! Secondly, we have an image of the art print from the Frank Welker VIP package, which is a spectacular piece of art by Casey Coller with colors by Josh Perez. Keep reading to see both!


Radio Free Cybertron's Diecast has reported in that the attendee giveaway figure this year is Zaptrap! Based on the Generations Legends-class Skrapnel mold, I'm sure we'll have more photos and info on this figure as the weekend draws nearer. Until then, keep reading to see the first photos!


Seibertron (by way of Autobase Aichi) has posted images of the BotCon 2015 Customizing Class figure! Another use of the Orion Pax mold, this black-and-purple LioConvoy variant is known as "Galva Convoy," and is based off of the Lucky Draw figure known as "Galvatron Lio Convoy." Keep reading to see!


TFormers forums member gema stopped by to alert us to a pictorial review he posted on his website, the appropriate-to-this-toy Black Plastic Life. The figure is the recently-discovered black recolor of Generations IDW Skids, which apes one of the many color schemes seen on the Skids mold in the pre-Transformers Diaclone line. Keep reading to see the images, then check out his site with the link at the end of the article!


IDW artist Matt Frank has posted to his Facebook showing off his new print for BotCon 2015! Colored by Josh Perez, Frank's take on Deathsaurus is appropriately enough much more in the style of his acclaimed work on Godzilla than his Spotlight: Trailcutter style. Keep reading to see!


Artist Josh Burcham has posted the finished image of the Wreckers print he's bringing with him to BotCon 2015! In addition to the final colored images, Burcham posted in-progress pictures of the print, and even streamed the penciling and coloring processes. Keep reading for the images and a link to the archived videos!


Last week, among the stories we reported on from Transformers Expo 2014 was the custom sticker set that turns a clear red and black EZ Collection/Legends Optimus Prime into Nemesis Prime. Kinda. Today, Autobase Aichi has posted full scans of that giveaway comic along with high-quality package-art-style Yokohama Decepticons logo. The comic has it all, from Beast Wars Megatron to Dr. Arkeville to Dark Energon. Keep reading to see!

Rhode Island Comic Con has announced that Welker and Cullen will be making an appearance at their convention, which takes place November 6th-8th.

Keep reading for the announcement and a link to buy tickets.


After another abortive try this morning, Fun Publications' Brian Savage has issued an apology and has promised that another try will be happening soon, with only attending packages being offered until the server load has been alleviated. Non-attending packages will occur in a future update, and if this final attempt fails they will go to a "semi-manual" system, presumably the one from JoeCon. Keep reading for more details.


Fun Publications' Brian Savage has sent out an email explaining that BotCon is working on getting registrations live, but "That will not happen this week." Also, the BotCon block at St. Charles' Pheasant Run Resort is full, and no further rooms are available, nor are they able to find a second hotel in close proximity. But parking, at least, will be free. Keep reading for more details.
