    Thanks to our good friend and site contributor Mr. Hoochman aka The Last Autobot of TransformersPeru and Unicron.com..., for pointing out a fantastic fact. While my spanish is a little "rusty" (quite bad!) I can get the general idea...

    "Hoy es un día muy importante para todos los peruanos. Una fecha que siempre debemos recordar. Hoy, 28 de Julio, es el cumpleaños de Peter Cullen!!!"

    Today is a very important day for all the something. One -something- that always -something- to remember! Today, July 28 is Peter Cullen's birthday!

    Just in case you don't know, Mr. Cullen is the voice of G1, Movie, TF:Prime Optimus Prime! (As if you didn't already know!) Happy 73rd Birthday Mr. Cullen! Here's to many more to come.   (1 comment)

    This past Saturday, the 51st episode of Transformers: Rescue Bots aired on Hub Network. Titled "Double Villainy", this is Part 1 of the season 2 finale! The Team has their work cut out for them this time as the various rogues gallery of the Rescue Bots have come together in a joint effort to kidnap the Bots in a bid to control them as weapons and work soldiers. And there is no telling what these masterminds are capable of due to their past displays of competence and craftiness. Can these villains be stopped, or have our heroes finally met their match? Through the space bridge for the episode and discuss.

    AmiAmi has posted official images of two officially licensed third party Transformers items made by Sentinel Co. Ltd. Gigantic Action Kyōfu Taitei MegaZarak and Gigantic Action Kyōfu Taitei BlackZarak. Both figures are 2 feet tall, fully articulated, nontransformable (yes, NONTRANSFORMABLE) figures based on Generation 1 Scorponok/MegaZarak and Masterforce BlackZarak. The "Kyōfu Taitei" part of their names is a transliteration of Scorponok's Japanese title of "Emperor of Terror" (BlackZarak's title was different: "Ankoku Taitei", meaning "Emperor of Darkness"). The base price for both is 48,600 yen, which is roughly equal to $477.23 USD. Through the space bridge for the pics.

    Remember how the San Diego Comic-Con 2014 Dinobots set contains the AOE Generations toys of Voyager Grimlock, Deluxe Slug, Deluxe Strafe, and Deluxe Snarl all redecoed in Generation 1-based decos, but was missing a certain Sauropod Dinobot? Well, worry no more! The missing fifth member of this group was announced at the Hasbro: Transformers panel to be an Amazon.com exclusive, and Amazon has just put up a preorder for this guy. Called "Generation 1 Voyager Class Slog", this figure is a redeco of AOE Generations Voyager Slog in G1 Sludge colors, complete with silver chrome paint like his brethren. The figure is due for release December 15, 2014, and currently priced at $34.99 USD (a mere 1 cent short of qualifying for Free Shipping!).

    Just a quick note to point out that the 2000 Transformers Section has received a facelift. Included with the update you will see new box-picture thumbnails for all toys we could find, and the addition of all Takara "Car Robots" series toys, Botcon Exclusives and the very first Third Party Set for Transformers fans, produced by your's truly, us Lukis Bros at Unicron.com.

    For those of our site visitors checking us out on a traditional browser, you will notice a Beast Machines themed background, with Cybertron, as it's depicted in Beast Machines cartoon... Sorry for those of you enjoying Unicron.com on a mobile device, who don't see image backgrounds! - But you can still see all the new updates to our toy database...   (Discuss in the forum)

    If you thought TakaraTomy ARTS's Mega Drive Megatron would be a one-of-a-kind, well, you'd be correct. But there is another classic video game console Transformer coming from the same group. TakaraTomy ARTS has announced a new figure of Optimus Prime that transforms into a Sony PlayStation; specifically the original PS1. So, there are only 3D renders of the figure, which can be found beyond the space bridge.

    Remember those Protectobots redeco we learned about back in June? Well, a few new official images of both the Protectobots Evac Squad and the Protectobots Emergency Response multi-packs have surfaced on Weibo.

    The Evac Squad set consists of Hot Spot redecoed from Universe Inferno with Solar Storm Grappel's crane arm and robot head, and sporting a deco based more on Fire Chief, as well as Blade redecoed from ROTF Blazemaster in a deco based more on Fly-Up.

    The Emergency Response set consists of Streetsmart redecoed from Prime Beast Hunters Prowl, Groove redecoed from Prime Cyberverse Arcee in a deco based on Universe Groove, and First Aid redecoed from Prime RID Ratchet.

    Both sets are in the same kind of packaging as the Age of Extinction toys, but lacking the tiny AOE logo. Through the space bridge for the pics.

    The updates keep coming from San Diego ComicCon. This time around it's Hasbro Studios who teases of things to come. Available now, the new exclusive Season 3 teaser for Rescue Bots. "Dino-bots" here we come!...   (3 comments)

    Oh yeah! They teased us at BotCon with a silhouette of Superion. But now, we get to see the first 10 team members of the 2015 Generations Aerialbots and Stunticons! The limbs are deluxe toys, the torso a Voyager. What more could we ask for (besides Protectobots, Combaticons, Predacons and Seacons...!) Thanks to Hasbro PR for providing us the photos, and the latest round of reveals from San Diego ComicCon. Now available in the 2015 Generations Transformers Section, allow us to introduce:

    AERIALBOTS unite to form Superion!
    SILVERBOLT: Aerialbot team leader Voyager
    AIR RAID: Looking like a bigger posable version of the G1 original.
    ALPHA BRAVO: a re-imagined version of G1 Slingshot, this one transforms into a helicopter.
    FIREFLY: The new look for Generations Fireflight. And...
    SKYDIVE: Same jet mode and everything, Skydive is looking great.

    STUNTICONS unite to form Menasor!
    MOTORMASTER: Appears to be a slightly retooled version of the Voyager Optimus we saw at BotCon 2014. He is the Voyager scale team leader of the Stunticons.
    BREAKDOWN: guessing this sweet remould may be recolored as a BotCon Exclusive a few times!
    DEAD END: Like others, a 'dead ringer' for the G1 original, only bigger and more poseable.
    DRAGSTRIP: No longer depicted as a female, as seen in the Transformers Animated BotCon set a few years ago! (Or is it a she???)
    OFFROAD: a re-imagined version of Wildrider. This one transforms into a heavy-duty truck.
    and an Unnamed Stunticon legend toy, which becomes the chest of Menasor. No word yet on whether this guy will be sold separately or perhaps come with Motormaster...   (4 comments)

    Hot Toys is a company that produces high end collectible products, and they're dipping their toes into the Transformers with their new Optimus Prime (Starscream Version) figure. This high grade, extra detailed, non-transforming figure is designed to resemble Generation 1 Optimus Prime, with the unique feature of wearing the wings, jets, and null rays of Starscream. A deceased Starscream. Yep, it's Optimus Prime wearing the corpse of his enemy. He even comes with a decapitated dead Starscream head.

    Additionally, an image for another Hot Toys figure of Optimus has been revealed to be a ACG-Hong Kong convention exclusive. This one is Optimus Prime (Megatron Version) with Optimus wearing, you guessed it, Megatron parts. Through the space bridge to see these advanced, if a bit morbid, figures.

    Artist Josh Nizzi revealed a plethora of concept art he created for the Transformers: Age of Extinction movie. In these images, we see several pieces of early art designs that were either used or unused in the movie. The images can be divided into eight catgories: Two for Optimus Prime, Robots, Weapons, Robots again, Ships, Misc., and Lockdown. Through the space bridge to see all the pics.

    More thanks again to Hasbro PR, who has passed along a copy of the Transformers Robots in Disguise teaser video now available for viewing on the Unicron.com's YouTube page. You can also check out high resolution image gallery with a few of the highlights mirrored in the attached forum thread...

    EDIT: one fan contacted us to say the YouTube link doesn't work because it was blocked by by Hasbro Studios on Copyright grounds. Bizarre, considering that it's Hasbro who provided us with the video in the first place! ... Anyway, if you have trouble, you can see the same vid, now on the TF:FB page HERE....   (1 comment)

    Many, reveals just in from San Diego ComicCon 2014! This is the first of several updates we'll be making through the night. First up toys from the new Transformers Robots in Disguise television series, which is scheduled to debut this next spring on HUB Network. All new character pages have been created in the 2015 Transformers Section for each of the following:

    Hyperchange: Bumblebee - not sure about exact price-point, but guessing it's smaller than Deluxe, bigger than One-Step Changer.
    Legion: Marks the return of Cyberverse scale! (Yeah!) Optimus Prime and what appears to be the newest member of the Autobot team: Strongarm.
    One-Step Changers: Sideswipe and Underbite.
    And last but not least a price point we haven't seen before:
    Warriors: is this just a new name for deluxe? We'll see. Bumblebee.

    I have also added screen captures from the all-new teaser trailer from the upcoming show, for each character's individual character page. Enjoy and stay tuned. More to come!   (5 comments)

    Million Publishing / Hero-X has posted the end results of the poll for their next Transformers Generations 2014 book exclusive. Ten potential redecos were gathered together and the votes have now been counted! The winner is someone who is something of an unsung hero among these ten, but a worthy character nonetheless. To see the results and find out who won, head through the space bridge.

    Transformers Columbia has brought us some more official images of upcoming Transformers: Generations figures from Hasbro. This time, it's five Deluxes and one Voyager. Arcee is a new mold based on her Generation 1 cartoon animation model, Chromia is a heavy retool of Prime First Edition Deluxe Arcee, Jhiaxus is a retool of Generations Armada Starscream, Nightbeat is a retool of Generation Bumblebee/Goldfire, and Windblade is a new mold that is mistransformed here. Brainstorm is likewise a new mold inspired by his current IDW design, coupled with the return of the Headmaster gimmick. Through the space bridge for the pics.

    Kapow Toys' Facebook has posted a new image of the upcoming mystery seventh figure in the Transformers Figure Subscription Service 2.0. Though previously revealed in a leak from Autobase Aichi, this image gives us a decent look at the figure in hand and out of package. If you do not wish to be spoiled by the figure's identity, proceed no further. But if you do, head through the space bridge.
