    The Transformers Universe MOTA game from Jagex has had new videos for it posted onto its YouTube channel: An Autobot Introduction and a Decepticon Introduction.

    Both videos give us a glimpse of how and when the Autobots and Decepticons arrived on Earth in this game, and possibly the same for the Aligned continuity (meaning this game might serve as a prequel to Transformers: Prime!). Through the space bridge for the videos.

    We first heard rumblings about this before, but now it is official. Discovery Communications has formally announced in a press release that the joint venture television partnership between both it and Hasbro, known as the Hub Network, will officially be coming to an end on October 13, 2014.

    The channel will instead be remade and reworked into a new network called Discovery Family, on which all of Hasbro Studios' current and upcoming programming will still continue to air, but as part of a daytime block running from the mornings to the early afternoons, while regular Discovery programming will air for the remainder of the late afternoon, primetime, and late night timeslots. This should have little affect on the airing of the upcoming Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon, the third season of the Transformers: Rescue Bots cartoon, and other Hasbro programming, aside from all them having to air during the daytime. To see the full details of the press release, head through the space bridge.

    TakaraTomy's website has posted the announcement of a new campaign of Transformers: Lost Age store exclusives called the "Legendary Weapons Present Campaign". Based on a scene from the Age of Extinction movie, in which human characters Cade and Shane discover an arsenal of weapons aboard Lockdown's ship, these four items are redecos of weapons that came with figures from the Prime Robots in Disguise and Prime Beast Hunters toyline. The four weapons are intended for use by Optimus Prime, Scorn, Slug, and Strafe. Through the space bridge for the details.

    Both TakaraTomy Mall and e-HOBBY have posted official images of the upcoming fourth wave of Transformers: Cloud figures, TFC-A04 Roadbuster and TFC-D04 Hellwarp.

    Roadbuster is a redeco of Generations Voyager Roadbuster in the color scheme of Super Link Roadbuster, A.K.A. Energon Ironhide.

    Hellwarp is a redeco of Generations Voyager Sky-Byte in the color scheme of Skywarp, as a name-based throwback to Beast Wars II Hellscream being a shark-bodied upgrade of Starscream (as this is a shark-bodied upgrade of Skywarp). Through the space bridge for the pics.

    Yesterday, the Transformers Collectors Club announced the release of a free Transformers comic book story to be put online on their website, in which the Transformers Figure Subscription Service 3.0 character would star in, and which would wrap up the conclusion of BotCon 2013's Machine Wars "Termination" story. Today, that promise has been fulfilled, for the comic has now been put online for all to see for free. Head over to the Club's website to read the 22-page digital comic called Transformers: Timelines #9 "A Common Foe".

    Along with this announcement, the Club Tweeted a preview image of an interior panel from this comic, done by Josh Burcham....

    Hobbybase's Facebook has posted new scans from a Japanese magazine showing off an immense amount of features for the upcoming Masterpiece MP-24 Star Saber. There is little that is not seen in these images, as Star Saber is chock full of so many gimmicks and weapons, none of which inhibit this figure's playability. Every mode is depicted in these pics: Jet mode, Starship mode, the V-Star, Saber's robot mode, Star Sabers's "Battle Up!" robot mode, "Ride On!", even the Brain of Courage. What more is that we can see that the original Branmaster face gimmick from the G1 figure is fully intact, while also permitting the figure to have full head articulation! Genius or madness, it's pretty darn awesome!

    Also depicted is Masterpiece MP-23 Exhaust, the remold of Wheeljack based on the Diaclone "Marlboor Wheeljack" figure. Let's Say Go through the space bridge.

    The Transformers Collectors Club has posted artwork for the sixth and final figure in the Transformers Figure Subscription Service 3.0. It is G2 Starscream, a redeco of Classics Starscream in Generation 2 Starscream colors, right down to the black face and gray helmet.

    In addition, the Club has Tweeted an extra special announcement related to the Subscription Service 3.0 figures. There's a brand new 22-page comic coming tomorrow, September 24, 2014, that will feature the TFSS 3.0 figures starring in an all new story, Transformers: Timelines #9! And it's FREE! The cover for this comic has revealed it to be a direct sequel to Transformers: Timelines #8, "Machine Wars: Termination", from BotCon 2013, which ended on a cliffhanger. This also explains why BotCon 2014's "Hoist the Flag" comic was labeled as "Transformers: Timelines #10" instead of #9. Through the space bridge for all of the content.

    TAG Hobby has posted a scan from the latest issue of Figure Ō magazine, in which we get the first actual images of the upcoming Transformers: Legends LG08 Swerve & Tailgate and LG09 Brainstorm. All three figures are redecoed from the Hasbro versions to have more toy-accurate decos, and what's more is that Swerve's Targetmaster has been changed into a different character entirely. While the Hasbro figure was Flanker (Micromaster Sky High), the Takara figure here is now Phaser, who was the Micromaster Combiner partner to Blast Master (who is Cosmos's Targetmaster partner Payload). Plus, the gun mode of Phaser has been decoed to resemble the My First Blaster that Swerve used in the IDW comics.

    Also seen in this scan are the Wave 4 Transformers Cloud figures Hellwarp and Roadbuster, redecos of Generations Sky-Byte and Roadbuster, respectively. Plus, a new Lost Age campaign is advertised as the "Legendary Weapons Campaign", in which TakaraTomy is offering four weapons redecoed from TF: Prime weapons: The Ptera Spear (Prime Knock Out's spear), the Spino Hammer (Beast Hunters Deluxe Twinstrike's hammer), the Tricera Mace (Beast Hunters Deluxe Windrazor's mace), and the Prime Axe (Beast Hunters Dreadwing's axe). Through the space bridge for the image.

    Amazon has posted a preorder for the Transformers Asia Kids Day Protectobots Emergency Response 3-Pack. Exclusive to Southwest Asia, this set contains three Transformers Prime molds redecoed as the Protectobots Streetsmart (renamed Streetwise, redeco of Prime Beast Hunters Smokescreen), Groove (redeco of Prime Cyberverse Arcee), and First Aid (redeco of Prime Robots in Disguise Ratchet). This Amazon preorder is the first time a major American retailer has acquired this set as a part of its regular stock instead of importing the item from overseas stocks. Thus far, though, there's no sign of the Protectobots Evac Squad, which features Hot Spot and Blades, on Amazon.

    TakaraTomy has Tweeted a couple of in hand images of the upcoming Movie Advanced Series AD29 Slog figure. A slight redeco of Hasbro's AOE Generations Voyager Slog, this figure sports a deco with colors that are not as bright as the Hasbro colors, being darker and more metallic overall. Through the space bridge for the pics.

    Additional images from the catalog are also included, which show a look at all of the Lost Age Series toys. Through the space bridge for the pics.

    Alfes 2010 has Tweeted in hand images of the packaging for the new Transformers Music Matrix DVD and Transformers Song Masterpiece CD set. The DVD and CD each contain a variety of songs from the many Japanese Transformers series ranging from openings, endings, and insert songs.

One is the Transformers: Robots in Disguise Panel, in which we are sure to finally learn much more about the new cartoon series coming in 2015. The other is the IDW & Hasbro Panel, in which we will continue to learn about what the future holds for many of Hasbro's comic book series released by IDW, including all of the forthcoming Transformers comics series.

    The Transformers Collectors Club has posted official artwork for yet another addition to the Transformers Figure Subscription Service 3.0. This time it is Serpent O.R.

    A redeco of Generations Scourge using the Ratbat headsculpt, this figure is based on the G.I. Joe character of Serpentor, who is typically depicted as the "Cobra Emperor", but this toy takes its look and name from a specific version of Serpentor. Specifically, the version from the Devil's Due "G.I. Joe vs. the Transformers III: The Art of War" crossover, in which Serpentor was a manmade mechanoid named "Serpent O.R.", reverse-engineered from Megatron's technology. After gaining sentience, the "Son of Megatron" proceeds to rally the then-leaderless Decepticons as one of their most competent leaders ever, becoming Serpentor Prime.

    But this toy represents a different version of that version with a more Cobra-based history. Anyway, through the space bridge for the artwork.

    The Hub Network: no more. As this and various other news outlets are reporting... Interesting read. Could this mean that we could return to the days of Beast Wars when show aired at 5 or 6AM? Could it mean that new series like the upcoming Robots in Disguise could air on Cartoon Network? ... Let the speculation begin.
    Discovery Communications and toy maker Hasbro are ending their joint partnership in The Hub, a cable network that hoped to become a force in children's television.

    It is with heavy hearts that we bring to you some sad news. According to Noblemania, actor Buster Jones, the voice of the Autobot Blaster from the Generation 1 cartoon, passed away on Monday, September 15, 2014.

    Outside of Transformers, Buster had a career as a radio DJ, a musician, and the voice of commercials prior to his becoming a voice actor. As a voice actor, his most notable roles were as the superhero Black Vulcan in the long-running Hanna Barbera/DC Comics SuperFriends cartoon, Doc in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero and Winston Zeddemore in both The Real Ghostbusters and Extreme Ghostbusters. He also hosted the Dick Clark-created Soul Unlimited television series in the 70's.

    More recently, Buster briefly returned to Transformers when he attended BotCon 2012 as a guest, and even provided the voices of both TransTech Stungun and a reprisal of Blaster in the live script reading "Bee in the City 2: Electric Boogaloo".

    Rest in peace, Buster Jones.

    The Transformers Collectors Club has posted official artwork for another installment in the upcoming Transformers Figure Subscription Service 3.0 for 2015. This time it is Carzap w/ G.B. Blackrock.

    A remold of Generations IDW Bumblebee, this figure is one with quite a history behind it. At the tail end of the Generation 2 toyline, Takara had planned to create a post-G2 toyline for 1996 called Block Town, which would feature Transformers toys packaged with sets of Takara's Diablock line (a rival to Lego in Japan). The sets would have been bases that could have been rebuilt into battle stations. One such planned release was a redeco of G2 Windbreaker with a Garage Set. As the line was canceled, so too was the Windbreaker redeco. Fast forward to the present, in which this figure is a direct homage to that unreleased Block Town Windbreaker redeco, complete with a new Windbreaker-based headsculpt and a buildable Kre-O battle station. The name "Carzap", however, was G2 Windbreaker's Japanese name given on a BotCon Japan 1997 poster.

    Also included with this figure is a Kreon of G.B. Blackrock, billionaire industrialist ally to the Autobots from the Marvel G1 comics (think a nicer Tony Stark minus the Iron Man suit). Through the space bridge for the artwork.

    As reported earlier, the Pawtucket, Rhode Island hosted a special Transformers event "turning ideas into toys!" On hand the mayor gave a small speech on the artistry of toy design and Hasbro's support of the local economy... In case you were not aware, Pawtucket, RI is the corporate home of Hasbro.

    Walmart exclusive Age of extinction figures are finally showing up in our area. Pretty weird to think there are fans who haven't seen the Beast Wars Terrorsaur mold before. Stranger still to see this toy as a blue movie DInobot recolor!
