Via an Ebay seller we have some new looks at the soon to be released two pack of Human Alliance Barricade and Soundwave. Human Alliance Soundwave was limited in release originally, though this edition may not be much easier to get due to its high base price and being an Asian market exclusive item. And despite this, neither toy appear to have any significant deco additions over their individual releases. Click through to check out the photos.



For whatever you might feel about the content of Age of Extinction in general, many agree that it at least had some nice music cues. While a score for the movie was available for a short time, the complexities of licensing forced its sale to be terminated after a fixed number of copies. If you missed out on that, you have another chance to listen to Steve Jablonksy's music for the film, including tracks that have never been released before. There's over 80 in total, so click through for the link, and get your favorite headphones ready so you can listen to them all!

World of 3A has posted a series of photos showing their upcoming Dark of The Moon Megatron. This 18-inch tall figure does not transform, but features plenty of articulation, lots of sculpted detail to make it as visually accurate to the design as possible, LED lighting, and even has a fabric cloak to hide the unsightliness of the head wound given to him by Optimus Prime. The first one, from before Optimus shot his head off his body Just Because. Keep reading to check out all the photos!

The latest episode of the QTransformers animation is up on YouTube!

But if you want to puzzle over that one, keep reading to see!



While a nomination for Best Picture was only ever possible within the realm of Michael Bay's fevered, explosion-laden imagination, historically the Transformers films have picked up nominations (though never a win) in the visual effects categories. But Age of Exinction will have to content itself with laughing all the way to the bank, as it's been ignored by the Academy this Oscar season.

In the episode, Optimus Prime suggests the alternate designation of "Murige" - "Impossible game" - citing games like Ghosts N' Goblins/Ghouls N' Ghosts as (animated!) examples.
