    - A #Transformers Prayer to Primus for Haslab #Unicron

    We had a chance to meet and become friends with Regg Henny of “Toys Noise & Action Figures” at San Diego Comic Con, during a fan media event where we were allowed to check out the grey resin model prototype, up close and personal. In one of our writes ups (Top 40 Thoughts and Impressions of Haslab Unicron) Regg leaves a heartfelt prayer so touching and good, we had to pass it along, that more of you could see.

    “Dear universal Primus,

    I really, really, reeeeeally need you to make this Haslab Unicron fan sourcing project become a reality. I've literally gambled my entire Transformers Armada MISB collection and bagged and boarded Dream Wave Armada/Energon comic collection including the poster book and 3 issue Armada encyclopedia, to afford this thing. I know I'm crazy for doing so but I have faith in you and in this masterpiece that Hasbro and Takara have engineered. I loved that collection and would giggle like a spoiled private school boy whenever a reissue Generations version of Armada Starscream or Armada Megatron would be released because I already owned the original releases. Forgive me for breaking your third commandment "Thou shall not commit collector snobitry" and sticking my nose up at those subsequent offerings. That collection is gone now and I vow not to look back on it so I may avoid you turning me in to a pillar of rust, especially if you bless me and all of the Seibertronian believers with the Chaos Bringer. I will not worship him as an idol, I promise, but I have already prepared a place for him far atop my Detolf Cabinet with "The Covenant of Primus" hanging just above. All these things I pray in the name of your son who sacrificed himself within the first 20 minutes of the movie and rose again in season 3.

    ABOT.”

    Imagine a ”Masterpiece Metroplex!”

    A very creative fan Ox Zhang in Shanghai, China created a spectacular custom, utterly unreal, transformable Metroplex, to scale with Masterpiece toys! How about this for the next #Haslab project?! Imagine it can fully transform and also serve as a stand for your TV in city mode!? Let’s suppose it costs $9,950. Who among you is taking out a bank loan to own one in their home?!

    #TransformersTCG Soundwave Vs Blaster Set

    Huge thanks to the team @Wizards of the Coast for the #FreeSample, we had an opportunity to check out the Blaster vs Soundwave set coming to mass retail, not sure the exact release date. This set in interesting and intended to be a great ‘starter set’ for new players. It includes Soundwave, Ravage, Buzzsaw, Frenzy, Blaster, Eject, Steeljaw, Ramhorn, as well as to sample starter decks. These are the same cards (in principle) as the recent SDCC exclusive set, except with new card art for each character (some side by side comparisons included) and expected release at mass retail so it should be easy to obtain.

    We’ve play tested this deck and had a lot of fun! Yes, even for beginners! So pick up a set, grab a friend and get to it! Of course after a few games, you start to have your own ideas and begin the modification of battle card decks to your own tastes - part of the fun! I’ve heard it said, by Brand Manager Drew Nolosco that Blaster has some serious play potential (in tournament play) which has yet to be fully realized. Time to start digging in and thinking about this!

    A very interesting idea from @krystal E Dixon. Would anyone interested in such a thing after Unicron?

    "Imagine if a Haslab Cybertron Primus was made in the future accompanied by full size mainline retail versions of the original Primes, some of which could be as large as Commander Class that each have a very small Prime Master cavity to place their Sparks into(POTP Prime Masters), this cavity wouldn't be obtrusive and would just be an easter egg / extra kind of like WFC-S Jetfire. I wonder if anyone else would be interested in that?~"

    On August 17, 2019, UK fan convention TFNation played host to a most momentous occasion in which Transformers Animated story editor Marty Isenberg presented a scripted performance of the original story treatment outline for what would have been the three-part season 4 premiere of Transformers Animated had it been greenlit for a fourth season.

    Titled "Trial of Megatron" (as opposed to The AllSpark Almanac II, The Complete AllSpark Almanac, and Issue #71 of the TCC Magazine titling it "The Trial of Megatron"), the outline for this three-parter was presented not as a live script reading done in the style of those performed at BotCons of years past, but was instead presented with pre-recorded dialogue acted by almost the entire Animated voice cast (only Tara Strong and Judd Nelson were absent, with their respective roles of Sari Sumdac and Rodimus Prime performed by other people) and set to all new original artwork created for the story by fan artists.

    Unicron.com Exclusive: #TransformersTCG Character Card Reveal: Captain Impactor

    He’s a 7-star character, with 12 health, 3 or 4 attack and 2 or 1 defense depending if he’s in tank or robot mode. (Fairly average for his star rating.) His deco and art is beautifully taken straight from the new toy design. When you flip to tank mode each of your other characters get bold 1. In robot mode, he has bold 1 (flip 1 extra card when attacking) This means you’re probably going to want to play him with an offensive deck. What other characters would you play him with? Maybe Wheeljack, Lionizer or Springer - because these also bestow bold and could work synergistically. We’ll have to learn more about other additions to Siege II before we can figure out just how useful this card will be. As a ‘Common’ category card, should be fairly easy to obtain.

    Special thanks to Hasbro PR for passing along the info and images! Siege II is set for release November 8. Please support unicron.com by ordering your booster box through the following amazon link: http://bit.ly/tftcgSiege2

    #IDWComics #Transformers Galaxies Pre/Review

    The first issue becomes available (soon/now!) Wednesday 9/18 via digital download and local comic stores. Thanks to IDW Comics we had a chance to sneak preview the first issue. It kicks off with a story featuring the original G1 combiner team: CONSTRUCTICONS RISING
    "Featuring story arcs that delve deeper into the origins, motivations, and world-shattering machinations of the extended Transformers cast, Galaxies launches with a story arc dedicated to the fan-favorite crew, the Constructicons!"

    These is also a new creative team in place with writing by Tyler Bleszinski who recently stated
    “I’ve dreamed of the day that I could somehow be involved in the Transformers universe, ... Humanizing the Constructicons in a refreshed origin story with Livio Ramondelli – one of the most talented Transformers artists ever – will be one of the highlights of my life and will give me the opportunity to share my passion for these incredible creations with my kids’ generation. This is truly a dream come true.”

    Having read the issue, I'll say the newcomer to writing Transformers fiction gets off to a nice start. They're clearly world building here and the story, while providing some perfumctory introductions to individual team members, provides some of the first and best characterization as to what goes on, psychologically to individuals when they merge to form Devastator. He also provides some fun teases foreshadowing where the story may be heading, down the road.

    The first issue doesn't have an over-abundance of characters. That's probably for the best, since it dedicates more space for what matters most - the Constructicons.

    The series opener also provides a great opportunity for Livio Ramondelli to apply his talents to what he does best - beautiful colors, scenery and backgrounds as a backdrop for the Transformers depicted as an interesting mix of old-school cartoon silhouettes with gritty modern texture and stylization. I think his style lends itself well to creating a nostalgic feel. This is, afterall, an origin story, that takes place a long time ago and that feel is certainly conveyed through his art.

    The direction this story takes over the issues to come, will, inevitably determine overall fan reaction and how it's remembered years from now. That said, it gets off to a strong start and shows potential for a new creative team. Thanks again to our friends at IDW for the advance look!

    Mere days after the previous news of the sudden passing of voice actor Michael Lindsay comes the unfortunate news of voice actor Robert Axelrod having passed away yesterday, September 7, 2019, at the age of 70. This news comes to us from Facebook of Mobile Monicker Productions, who represented Axelrod for his many convention appearances. Axelrod is best known for having provided the voices of Lord Zedd, Finster, and other monsters on Power Rangers, as well as several English dub anime voice roles, such as Wizardmon, Vademon, Armadillomon, Ankylomon, and Shakkoumon (w/ Dave Mallow) on Digimon, and Rico on Robotech. He also voiced Marvel Comics character Microchip in the Punisher episodes of Spider-Man: The Animated Series, and appeared in live action on an episode of Family Matters where he played a Paul McCartney lookalike.

    For Transformers, he was the voice of Movor in the 2001 Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon. One of the Decepticon Commandos, Movor was the space shuttle member who could form an arm or leg for the combiner Ruination. He was also one of the very few Commandos to star in his own spotlight episode, "Attack from Outer Space", which had the misfortune of being one of the three episodes that was banned from ever airing on TV in the United States due to sensitivities from the September 11 attacks in 2001.

    Rest in peace, Mr. Axelrod. Your performances were a treasure to behold.

    It is with deep sadness that we must report that, on August 31, 2019, voice actor Michael Lindsay passed away at the age of 56. This news comes to us from the Twitter accounts of Trevor Dylan, Rob Benoit, and Marissa Lenti. Best known for his work in anime dubbing, Lindsay provided the English dub voices for the likes of Joe Kido and Greymon in Digimon Adventure, Rick in DinoZaurs, Kankuro in Naruto, Kisuke Urahara in Bleach, Shinichirō Tamaki in Code Geass, and more.

    For Transformers, he was best known as the voices of Skid-Z ("skids") and Rollbar in the 2001 Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon. Skid-Z was an Autobot racer who had an unusually high competitive edge, always needing to win every race he could, so much that he would enter any race of any kind, including car racing, bicycle racing, or even foot racing. Rollbar, meanwhile, was the green jeep member of the Decepticon Commandos, able to form an arm or leg of the combiner Ruination, and had a thick southern drawl and an easygoing demeanor, always cracking wise whenever he felt like it.

    Rest in peace, Mr. Lindsay. You will be missed, dearly.
