    Happy Independence Day from Unicron.com! On this very morning, the 16th episode of the 2015 Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon aired on Cartoon Network in the U.S. Though nothing so patriotic happens in it, what does happen is quite dark, like, TF: Prime levels of dark! Titled "Some Body, Any Body", Sideswipe gets in over his head in the pursuit of the latest Decepticon, which lands him in a most unnerving position that renders him both a liability and force to be reckoned with. Can Sideswipe and the Bee Team overcome this predicament and everyone's head on straight? Let's find out.

    TFYuki tweets photo of package mock-up of Unite Warriors, Protectobots.

    So here's the question: Do you prefer a G1-authentic but ridiculously-out-of-scale motorcycle Grove, OR a Protectobots team with in-scale legends class Groove and new team member addition, (Rook), such as the Hasbro version?

    With with heavy hearts that we must report the recent passing of anime director Hidehito Ueda. Anime News Network, passing on this news from anime screenwriter Takao Koyama, writes that Ueda-san passed away this past Sunday, June 28th, at the age of 61. His ties to Transformers came in the form of directing and storyboarding the 2002-2003 anime series Chō Robot Seimeitai Transformers: Micron Densetsu (Super Robot Lifeform Transformers: Legends of the Microns), better known to the Western World as the original Japanese version of Transformers: Armada.

    Don't ask what *possessed* me. I guess I just got a bug in me to get pictures of this rare, oldie-but goodie into our system! Fun to imagine what Waspinator would have looked like, if had been given the Transmetal upgrade in animation... Even more fun to imagine him on the giving end of a butt-kicking with this powered up, upgrade, than his usual role, receiving it!

    The Tokyo Toy Show 2015 convention took place this same weekend as BotCon, at which TakaraTomy showed off a whole slew of new Transformers toys. From Adventure and Legends to Unite Warriors and Masterpiece. Of particular interest right now would be the long awaited revelation of the Unite Warriors Devastor (Devastator) figure, which is TakaraTomy's Japanese-domestic release of Hasbro's Generations Combiner Wars Titan class Devastator. The images below have been provided by Facebook user Daim Choc, Alfes 2010's Twitter, Dengeki Hobby, and TFYuki.

    The main differences between with the Unite Warriors version are strikingly major compared to the more ordinary differences of merely redecoing the likes of Superion and Menasor. In addition to featuring an extensive amount of show-accurate paint apps (even having purple inner treads on Bonecrusher), Devastor features several retooled parts, such as brand new handheld gun accessories for all six Buildrons (Constructicons). The six guns are all based on the guns included with the six G1 toys.

    Another main difference is that, while Hasbro Devastator has visored eyes, and SDCC Devastator has regular eyes, Takara Devastor has BOTH! The visor on the Takara version is retractable, a la Titan class Metroplex's visor. And best of all, TakaraTomy has gone the extra mile of fixing one of the biggest complaints people have had with the Hasbro version: Scrapper and Long Haul have ELBOWS! Real, working, articulated elbows!

    The 14th episode of the 2015 Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon has aired on Cartoon Network in the U.S. Like episode 13, this one has been the subject of much confusion due to an error in scheduling when this episode debuted overseas. When it first premiered in Australia, it aired instead of episode 13, causing many to think that this episode was number 13, and that last episode was number 14. Luckily, its U.S. premiere is in the proper placement.

    That said, this episode, titled "Sideways", has absolutely nothing to do with any character named Sideways (just to clarify). Rather, this episode has the Bee Team targeting the next Decepticon... simultaneous to Steeljaw's Pack. This leads to the first big confrontation between the Team and the Pack as they battle over possession of the new Decepticon (who walks in sideways directions, hence the title). Can the Bee Team overcome and capture all of the Decepticons, or will Steeljaw and his Pack prove simply too much for them to handle? Let's find out.

    It has come to pass. The second-longest Transformers cartoon ever, Transformers: Rescue Bots, has aired its two-part season 3 finale episodes, 77 and 78, on Discovery Family. And next year will bring us a fourth season, making this show become the single-longest Transformers cartoon of all time.

    In episode 77, titled, "Now and Then", the entire island of Griffin Rock mysteriously vanishes from the ocean! What happened to it and where could it have gone? In episode 78, titled "Today and Forever", for the island of Griffin Rock to be saved, the Rescue Bots must make the ultimate sacrifice. Could this be the end of our heroes? Can they overcome the biggest crisis they've ever faced? What sort of sacrifice must they make to win the day? Let's tune in and find out!

    The 13th episode of the 2015 Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon has aired on Cartoon Network in the U.S. Titled "Out of Focus", both this one and episode 14 have been the subject of much confusion, as this episode was originally skipped when the show debuted in Australia, with episode 14 accidentally airing in its stead, making everyone think that #14 was meant to be #13. When the show debuted in Singapore, this episode aired in it appropriate spot, with everyone thinking that Singapore had skipped #13 and accidentally aired #14, when Singapore had really aired the correct episode while Australia did not. With the U.S. airing, however, the confusion has hopefully been settled.

    Anyway, this episode focuses on not one but two plotlines. On the one hand, Bumblebee struggles to hold the Bee Team together and find his focus during their pursuit of the latest Decepticon detection. On the other hand, the still-deceased Optimus Prime prepares in the afterlife for new threat to come in the future, as he too much find his focus. Can both of these Autobot leaders overcome their inner obstacles that challenge and oppose them in each of their missions? Let's find out.
