    - Movie Matrix which fits in Optimus' chest!

    Visiting Hasbro's Model/Prototype Workshop!

    Had a chance to meet this cool dude, Mark Maher a few years ago at Botcon, where he told me about his background in graffiti art and how he applies these talents to provide decos for toys like Transformers! Check out this cool video showing some of the figures of yesteryear coming to life!

    Unknown Items on Weibo

    Bearing a striking resemblance to the CGI models seen onscreen in Transformers films, comes these... I'll be honest, I don't know what to call them, or what they are. They could be one-of-a-kind customs, could be **third party prototypes, statues, resin models, or (I wish!) upcoming official products. (Not likely but one can hope!). These to-scale items look perfect next to Leader Class Hasbro toys and include an incredible level of detail. Stay tuned, more info as it becomes available.

    Unicron "Lamp" - Planet Mode!

    In case the robot mode version was not enough for your collecting needs, Soldierstory shows off its next coming attraction, another "lamp" (I think they get away with calling it a lamp because it has a has so many LEDs; apparently enough to light up a room!) -this version, however, comes in planet mode. No word yet on MSRP but if it's like the robot mode version, be prepared for another $800 price tag!

    Frank Welker & Peter Cullen Encourage Fans to Reveal Their Shield!

    Day 1 of the Hasbro announced event includes a fun video of the classic original and modern day voice actor duo for Megatron & Optimus Prime. They show off a few new toys (Voice Changer helmets) and have some fun. So which side shall you choose, #Autobot or #Decepticon ??

    Sadly we have virtually no reports of new toys showing up at retailers across the U.S. did you have any luck with your toy hunting?

    Waspinator in Forged To Fight - Official Press Release & Video

    ABOUT WASPINATOR:
    Faction: Predacons
    Class: Demolitions

    SIGNATURE ABILITY – WASPINATOR LIVES!
    Waspinator’s ability to endure otherwise fatal blows and quickly reassemble himself makes him a tough bot to take out.

    Despite his loyalty to the Predacon cause, the stalwart Waspinator never gets the respect he deserves from both his team mates or the universe. He has a knack for being crushed, smashed, and torn apart, but this bug has shown himself to be nearly indestructible, always appearing reassembled and ready for the next battle.

    STATS AND ABILITIES:
    2-Star: Health: 1662 Attack: 144 Max Rating: 571
    3-Star: Health: 4081 Attack: 30 Max Rating: 1326
    4-Star: Health: 10600 Attack: 785 Max Rating: 3524
    BASIC ABILITIES:
    Passive:
    When Waspinator drops below half of his Base Health, he diverts power to his ranged weapons, doubling Projectile Speed for the remainder of the fight.
    When Waspinator drops below a quarter of his Base Health, he gains a 15~29% Special Damage for the remainder of the fight.
    Ranged Attacks: Basic ranged attacks sting the opponent, inflicting a 20~28% Resistance De for 2 seconds after a short delay.
    Heavy Attacks
    100% chance to instantly inflict a 20~28% Resistance De for 5 seconds.
    100% chance to Nullify a Resistance .

    On Knockout Blow
    If Waspinator’s HP would become 0 he instead becomes Invulnerable, Purifies all Des and Heals 1~20% of his health.
    SPECIAL ATTACKS
    Special 1 – Eye Lasers
    Waspinator overloads his optic sensors!
    70~90% chance to gain a 13~25% Precision , increasing Critical Rate and lowering the opponent’s chance of Evading attacks for 5~7 seconds.
    Special 2 – Unsteady Sting Shot
    Waspinator use kick then Waspinator use gun.
    100% chance to instantly inflict a 20~28% Resistance De for 5 seconds.
    100% chance to Nullify a Resistance .
    Special 3 – Surprise ‘Nuke
    Now Waspinator has the giant bomb! Now Waspinator is greatest of Predacons!
    This attack has a 100% chance Waspinator Burns the opponent dealing Heat Damage equal to 100% of his attack over 5 seconds.
    SYNERGY BONUSES:
    Enemies with Rhinox
    Rhinox and Waspinator both receive increased Attack Rating when paired with each other.
    1~8% Attack Rating.
    Sky Assault with Windblade
    Waspinator and Windblade receive improved tracking when paired with each other.
    Opponents become 5~25% less evasive.
    Weaponsmiths with Mixmaster
    Waspinator gains an increased Critical Chance on Heavy Attacks when paired with Mixmaster.
    6~15% Heavy Attack Critical Hit

    STRONG MATCH-UPS:
    Ultra Magnus
    Ultra Magnus’s Resistance s make him one of the tougher bots in the game, but weakening the Resistances of bots is Waspinator’s specialty. Resistance down and Nullification of Resistance s make the Wasp a great counter for the Autobot leader.
    Arcee
    Waspinator’s Signature Ability to nullify des allows him to stave off death from bleeding once per fight. Arcee’s low health also becomes a serious disadvantage when facing a well timed Special Attack from Waspinator.

    WEAK MATCH-UPS:
    Rhinox
    Rhinox’s Shield offers the perfect counter to Waspinator’s punishing Special Attacks. The Shield’s ability to withstand Waspinator’s Ranged Attacks ensure it is available when the Wasp unleashes his highest damage.
    Mirage

    The quickest way to mitigate Waspinator’s powerful Special Attacks is to deny him Power. Mirage’s Power Drain mode will allow him to keep Waspinator from unleashing his full damage.
    RECOMMENDED MODULES FOR WASPINATOR:
    Offense: Superconductor-1000
    Waspinator has some of the most devastating Special Attacks, and the Superconductor 1000 helps him use them more often, and with less resistance.
    The Superconductor-1000 is exclusive to the Raid Store.
    Defense: Repair Module
    Waspinator’s Signature Ability gives him more opportunity to heal up with the Repair Module’s abilities, helping ensure he sticks around for fight after fight.
    The Repair Module is found in the Premium Modul

    The Last Knight Release Date Tomorrow 4/24

    Is this what the Transformers Section looks like at your local retail toy store too? With the official release of The Last Knight movie figures coming tomorrow (Monday 4/24) we're hoping this means other #Transformers toys like Wave 4 Deluxe/Voyager/Leader Class Titans Return toys will start being stocked everywhere again as well! It appears many retailers seemingly wrongly self-imposed the movie toy hold from stocking other lines as well. Be sure to report your toy sightings with:

    Let's take a trip back to April 1986. The second season of the G1 cartoon had ended and Transformers: The Movie was set to hit theaters in August as a means to bridge the gap between the cartoon's second season and its third season, which was due to air in September of that year. However, the same would not be the case for Japan, as the Japanese version of the first two seasons was still airing new episodes at the time, and the movie would not see release in Japan until 1989. As a means to bridge the forthcoming time gap between the Japanese versions of seasons 2 and 3, a brand new piece of Transformers animation was created by Japan for Japan, for the first time ever: Scramble City.

    This original video animation (OVA) featured the first ever animated appearances of Ultra Magnus, Ratbat, Metroplex, and Trypticon, with the latter two appearing in rather different designs from how they would later appear in Season 3 of the G1 cartoon. Over the years, there have been a few attempts to share this OVA with the English-speaking world, be they subtitled rips of the original VHS tape, fan-produced unofficial dubs of the video, or even an audio-less version provided as a bonus on Sony's 2006 release of the 1986 movie. But now, Karyuudo Fansubs has done the fandom yet another courtesy (after their having subbed Car Robots, Zone, Micron Densetsu, and Beast Wars II) of releasing a special high quality, newly-fansubbed, downloadable torrent release of Scramble City, complete with a fresh new subtitle translation, two optional subtitle tracks, and extra bonuses. Below is a copy of their original announcement of the release:
