After being playable for roughly as many months as it was years in development, gamesindustry.biz reports that Jagex has pulled the plug on Transformers Universe, the MMO turned MOBA turned whatever they wound up calling it.

Keep reading as we break this down, and then let us know what you think!



Variety reports that the Hub will, as previously rumored, become the Discovery Family Channel on October 13th.

Keep reading for more details!

BaCon's gotten video footage of the preview of Robots In Disguise 2015! The new animation style is looking good, and we get good looks at Bumblebee, Sideswipe, and the Elite Guard and Dinobot members of the team who are as-yet unnamed. Keep reading to see!

Transformers@The Moon has unearthed new Transformers-related trademark applications filed with the US Patent Office, and there's no way these could be anything but the names for the Angry Birds Transformers.

Amazon posted listings for Transformers Prime Beast Hunter action figures that give us a look at the character summary bios the Cyberverse Commander Class Unicron Megatron and Ultra Magnus figure. Read the character summary bios for all the figures now.


I was looking at my ultra magnus from TFprime (2nd release) and he's missing his smoke stacks on the back flaps. I figured I would get another one somewhere and return the one without the smoke stacks... I saw another one at walmart yesterday and it didn't have the smoke stacks either... what the heck? Anyone else see this? UPDATE: Seems to be a unannounced running change with the figues as the Hasbro preview images show them, but the production images do not.


Thanks to FMH forum member Aesir who has posted news from Hasbro themselves that the official UK street date for Transformers Prime Beast Hunters action figures will be June 1, 2013. That is great news for all the Transformers fans who have been watching and waiting for these new toys.


Yea, you read the title right. Is it any wonder WHY Hasbro's sales are tanking? They seem to only care about keeping Wall Street engaged with such patronizing double speak in a press release of all things. Sorry to use this PR as a place to scurtinize them, but I hope someone at HQ reads this and puts the fun back into Trasnformers one day. Hasbro is faltering and Beast Hunters has clearly become a scramble to justify why their "Franchise" isn't getting love from shoppers. Read more and tell Hasbro you want more than meets the stock price.


Thanks to Hydra over at the Allspark who has posted some details about the Takara Tomy Transformers lucky draw Optimus Prime sound stages that are limited to 50 pieces. He has been nice enough to share the translated quotes that the stage says in the Japanese Optimus Prime voice. Check out the quotes and image from the original Lucky Draw campaign below for more info.
