News


We'd heard previously that Hasbro subsidiary Wizards of the Coast - the gaming company behind Magic: The Gathering and current publisher of Dungeons & Dragons - would be attempting a new Transformers trading card game sometime this year. Today, UK site Total Cards has put up the first images and preorders for the new game in the form of an Autobots Starter Deck and the first wave of boosters. Keep reading for more information!



The official Transformers Instagram account has posted a brief slideshow showing off the development history of Power of the Primes Legends class Dinobot Slash! Showing the concept art, prototype, and final official photography, Slash is shown with a pair of thematically-appropriate short swords in the concept art - and while we're sad those didn't cost out it's not a very normal thing for Legends to ship with weapons anymore. So it's not exactly unexpected. Keep reading to see.



Amazon has added the finalized stock photos to their listing for Power of The Primes Optimal Optimus, the final new Leader mold coming our way in the current iteration of Generations. Optimus Primal was the winning character when Hasbro asked the community to vote for a new leader character last year, and we got our first glimpse at the design work during the first HasCon event in Rhode Island. While much of what the toy can do is shown in the newest round of stock photos, the actual flight mode is still omitted, so far only having been confirmed through TakaraTomy photography. Also omitted are some critical paint operations on Optimus Primal's face, unfortunately. You can see that and more in the gallery below!



Simon Chan of the Hobbymizer Hong Kong Discuss Facebook group has posted images of the latest issue of Figure King magazine! Within are images of the Predacons, their combined form of Power of the Primes Titan Class Predaking, and some design images of Predaking to boot! As camera shots as opposed to scans the quality isn't spectacular - but it's something to look forward to as better images come later on. Keep reading to see!



"When I bring about the apocalypse, this will all be worth it!" Machinima has posted a new trailer for Power of the Primes, the upcoming final leg in their animated Prime Wars Trilogy. We have a good look at Volcanicus and the Dinobots, get to see Overlord in action... and also a glimpse of Optimus Primal! Keep reading to see.



Hasbro's stock price dropped slightly today as the company reported that earnings were not meeting analyists' expectations for the company in the first quarter of 2018. Hasbro reported a net loss of $112.5 million or 90 cents per share, and are anticipating another weak quarter to follow in the aftermath of ToyRUs' liquidation. Keep reading for an excerpt from CNBC's story and a link to the full text.



The new Transformers Prime Wars Trilogy from Machinima is just around the corner with the first cartoon coming May 1st, 2018. We have word from the voice actor himself, Frank Todaro. That he will be the voice of Dinobot Sludge in the new toons. Read on for the full quote from Frank.



Writer James Roberts has confirmed on Twitter that he will be taking "a break" from Transformers after the conclusion of his More Than Meets The Eye epic with Lost Light #25. When asked if the term "break" corresponded to a return, Roberts responded with "We'll see..." What this means for the future of IDW's Transformers comics is unknown, but one thing is certain: Mr. Roberts will be missed. Keep reading for the tweet.



The Transformers Facebook page has shared a post today featuring a video clip (from Titans Return) and revealing when the third and final series in the Prime Wars Trilogy will launch. With a much shorter wait than that from Combiner Wars to Titans Return, Power of The Primes will begin streaming on Tuesday, May 1st. With the debut so close, it seems odd we haven't seen more promotion leading up to the launch date as we had with both previous web series - but there's still about a week and a half to squeeze some more in! Click through to see the original Facebook post.



Fresh in shops in both New Zealand and The Philippines as of this week, the remaining Terrorcons are now out in the wild to let collectors complete Abominus. Chefatron on Youtube has some video coverage of the new toys, taking a look individually at Sinnertwin, Blot, and Cutthroat, and then the completed combined form. Based on the usual patterns, fans in the US should expect to start seeing these toys become available in about a month from now, around the middle of May. You can check out each of the new videos embedded below.

Facebook group TFND has posted official photos of Power of the Primes Leader class Nemesis Prime! Probably destined to be an exclusive, Nemesis Prime comes with a sword which transforms into a bird companion named Giza - the name of Transformers Prime Nemesis Prime's Arms Micron! We also get our first look at the "Orion Pax" inner robot, whose name and/or true identity are not currently known... but that's sure not Pax's head. Keep reading!


It's that same guy with the purple marker again - but this time he used black and only a little of it, presumably to obscure which Prime Master will be included with Wreck-Gar. It's a nice piece of packaging art, and does a pretty good job of selling the Combiner Wars/Unite Warriors Deluxe Groove mold as the Junkion leader. Keep reading to see!


Ready for more obnoxious purple marker leaks? Too bad, because the usual Weibo leaker is inflicting it on us again with needlessly marked-over images of Nemesis Prime, a figure we've already seen through official (if unusual) channels. But we get his bio, an image of the Dark Matrix of Leadership, and a look at "Decepticon Giza," who seems to be formed from Nemesis Prime's weapons. Keep reading if you like purple.


With thanks once again going to transformersnewzealand.com, we've got some in-hand, out-of-package photos of the Power of the Primes Wave 3 Terrorcons! Blot, Sinnertwin, and Cutthroat are all looking good, and have indeed retained their original names as promised. Keep reading to see more!


If his combiner-torso proportional necessities and questionable stickers have foiled your urge to purchase Power of the Primes Voyager class Starscream: good (or possibly bad) news! Amazon currently has it for $16.16 as of this writing, and eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. Keep reading for a link!


Amazon has posted product pages with official images for the Power of the Primes wave 3 Prime Masters! Quintus Prime with Bludgeon, Bomb-Burst with Megatronus, and Solus Prime with Octopunch continue the Mini-Pretender format of the previous two waves, with each turning into a weapon. The focus is on melee weapons this wave, with Octopunch becoming a trident weapon, Bomb-Burst becoming a claw, and Bludgeon... well, guess. Keep reading to see the images!


Flame Toys announced on Twitter today that the fourth figure in the Kuro Kara Kuri series - after Drift, Tarn, and Star Saber - would be none other than Optimus Prime himself. Prototype images were displayed of a design very much in keeping with Flame's output so far: a highly detailed, stylized take on the character.
