IMHO Below: after Chaos & having bumblebee as the autobot faction leader. I lost all faith in IDW TF comics. I haven't bought a IDW TF comic since decenber 2011. I'm probably only going to buy the IDW TF Re-generation comics & that's it. I'll buy these ever 6 months via tra... read more

Product photos of the third items from the 2015 exclusive boxset have gone up on the Botcon site. Revealed a bit late this past week, Shattered Glass Stepper is the orange, black, and white redeco of Reveal The Shield Jazz which includes the Nightstick Targetmaster mold first seen on this mold with Million Publishing's exclusive Stepper. We're still trying to work out how orange relates to Stepper, but at least Nightstick carries on the blue theme of the exclusives so far. Click through to see the mirrored photos!
Just before the video showing the third exclusive boxset toy went live, the Botcon website was updated with a product page for the second reveal, Battletrap. Recolored from Generations Springer with a new head sculpt, the former Duocon more or less represents its source material - not to mention telegraphing a not-altogether-unlikely Flywheels to come up somewhere along the way. Click through to check out the page and the three new images!
Fun Publications has uploaded the next Botcon boxset reveal video to their Youtube channel. The third figure is "The Loose Cannon", following Packrat as The Thief, and Battletrap as The Muscle. The newest member of "Cybertron's Most Wanted" is Shattered Glass Stepper, from the Reveal The Shield Jazz mold. Stepper features no new parts, and a deco adding a lot of orange over the standard Stepper/Ricochet colors. We've embedded the video and taken some screencaps of the figure, so click through and check them out!
Once again with Botcon drawing ever closer, it's time to nominate characters and people to be inducted in to the Hall of Fame. Hasbro has reached out and asked for our help in choosing those nominees once again, so it's time to open the polls! This year we have three categories waiting for Fans' Choice nominations, so click through now to find out what they are and get links to the individual polls, open until 11:59 pm Central Time, Sunday, April 19th.
This year the Hall of Fame will be inducting a lucky musician or group who have contributed to official Transformers productions, be it movies or TV, or even official music videos! A great many people have had their hands in this field, and we've selected some personal favorites and some that have had significant influence on Transformers with their work. Keep reading, review the names, and let your vote be heard!
