    Power of the Primes - Elect the New Leader of Cybertron!

    Sick of real politics? Let's delve into the politics of Cybertron instead! As announced early last December, Hasbro will be polling fans and asking for votes to elect the next leader of Cybertron. A fan participation event sure to have lasting effects in toy and fiction throughout its various forms. Voting is scheduled to begin January 23 (next Monday).

    A visitor to fellow fansite seibertron, has found a beta-site where one can find the intro and a few additional details.

    "The bot chosen as Prime becomes the bearer of the Matrix of Leadership, a Legendary artifact that carries great power. The Matrix of Leadership contains the knowledge and wisdom of each Prime that has carried it, stretching back millions of years. The bearer must be worthy of this power.

    The next Prime will become the Leader of Cybertron, weild the immense Power of the Matrix of Leadership and hold the fate of the Transformers Universe in their hands.

    Help shape the destiny of the Transformers Universe. Vote now and pick your Prime."

    The voting will take place in two phases:
    ROUND 1: Contenders Section -- January 23
    ROUND 2: Contenders Unveil -- January 27
    ROUND 3: Final Vote -- February 01

    So far, we can surmise that among the "Contenders" we'll get to vote on this Monday, will include: Ultra Magnus, Hound, Arcee, Shockwave, Megatron, Star Saber, Thunderwing, Unknown Evil (looks a little like Deathsaurus!) and Optimus Primal

    ***Who ARE YOU HOPING to see on the ballot and who will have your vote?!

    MMC Carnifex G1 Add-on kit announced! If you purchased Mastermind Creations Carnifex (clearly styled in a likeness akin to IDW Overlord), than you surely noticed that he has "Powermaster" shaped chest cavities, despite the fact that he neither comes with Powermaster minions nor do the removable cluster bomb inserts fully fill those familiarly shaped chest cavities (noteworthily, the place where the Powermaster's head would go). As such, it comes as no surprise to us that MMC recently shared images of it's Carnifex Continuum (G1 inspired) add on kit to their Facebook page: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1304821492912565&id=134216339973092

    We will add images of this add-on kit to our gallery as soon as we can get it into our hands!

    Punch/Counterpunch - Impossible Phantoms

    Writer and fan Jesse Wittenrich who did work for the official Transformers Collectors Club, shares some of his unused work via Twitter

    "Unused Transformers Collectors' Club comic script: Impossible Phantoms. The "lost" story of Punch/Counterpunch!

    I think this was my first EVAH attempt at writing a comic, so you might notice the per page panel count is WAAYYY out of whack."

    Last night, Tess Hightower, wife of actor Richard "Dick" Gautier, announced to the world on her Facebook the sad news that her husband has quietly passed away. He was 85.

    Dick Gautier was best known to Transformers fans as the voice of Rodimus Prime (and Hot Rod) in the third and fourth seasons of the Generation 1 cartoon, as well as the voices of Apeface, Firebolt, and the Quintesson scientist from "The Killing Jar".

    Outside of Transformers, Gautier was also the voices of Sepentor on the Sunbow version of the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero cartoon, Spike the dog in The Tom & Jerry Kids Show, Louis on Foofur, the Sogmaster in the Cap'n Crunch commercials, and more. He even once filled in for Adam West as Batman in a 1972 PSA commercial. His most famous live action roles were arguably Hymie the robot in the original 1965 Get Smart TV series, and Robin Hood in the 1975 TV mini-series When Things Were Rotten.

    New Details on Movie MP Bumblebee

    Hasbro Pulse publishes a "3 Things To Know" discussion of the upcoming Masterpiece toy:

    "3 Things To Know About The Bumblebee Masterpiece Figure.

    The news has broken, and the excitement is spilling out in waves. The Masterpiece Bumblebee figure will soon be available, and we assume you—the fans, collectors, and more—have some questions. As a preemptive strike, here are 3 things to know about this monumental action figure!

    So…when exactly CAN we get it? And what will it cost me?

    Short answer: Soon! Longer answer: The Masterpiece Bumblebee figure was created for ages 8 and up, and is slated for release in summer 2017. It has an MSRP of $79.99.

    Is this modeled after the TF 5 Bumblebee, an earlier incarnation, or something different all together?

    This Masterpiece Bumblebee figure is based on the first Transformers live action movie using some die-cast parts to commemorate the film’s 10th anniversary . .

    Timeout. Does it convert?

    Does it ever! Much like in the first Transformers live action movie, Bumblebee converts from his dynamic, Autobot scout form into a 2006 Chevy Camaro concept car. The figure also has a whopping 33 points of articulation, making it a collectable, and versatile figure. The design premise allows fans to articulate the figure into all sorts of movie-accurate poses!"

    Looks like the new MP-32 Convoy (Beast Wars), or Optimus Primal, is getting a redeco for the Masterpiece line! Dengeki Hobby has unveiled the first images of MP-38 Convoy (Beast Wars) Densetsu no Sōshireikan Ver. or Legendary Supreme Commander Ver.! This redeco uses a deco that is more accurate to the original 1996 Ultra class Optimus Primal toy, which is also a much closer match to how the character appeared in his special guest starring role in the Japanese Beast Wars II theatrical movie. Additionally, this figure comes with brand new accessories: A skull flail (which is a DIFFERENT one from the die-cast Transformers Asia exclusive version that went with MP-32), a beast mask based on the original 1996 toy's Mutant Head, and a new weapon called the Double Blade, which is a solid piece meant to resemble his two swords combined together, and which can attach to his back in either Beast or Robot Mode via an additional weapon rack piece. Also included from the MP-32 release are his two swords, his angry gorilla face, and his mouthplated robot face (in addition to the neutral gorilla and robot faces). The figure is priced at 12,000 yen (same price as MP-32) and is scheduled for release in June 2017.

    Yesterday, before coming to its end, the Transformers Collectors Club posted one last bit of extra supplementary material via its Twitter. These are four alternate toy bios for the BotCon 2015 Waruders, which were four unique redecos of the Generations Deluxe class Waspinator mold. These bios characterize the four as different characters from what the toys' original bios presented them as, allowing these four toys to represent more than one character each. Mudfighter is repurposed as Shattered Glass Waspinator (who was briefly seen at the end of the 2013 TCC magazine storyline "Beast Wars Shattered Glass"), Parasite is repurposed as the brand new Beast Wars Predacon named Skywasp (a Beast Wars counterpart for G1 Skywarp), Storm Rider is repurposed as King Waruder (Supreme Ruler of the Waruder race), and Paralyzer is repurposed as Bug Bite II (a drone copy of the original Renegade Bug Bite).

    Today, December 31, 2016, marks not only the final day of the year 2016, but also the final day of the Transformers Collectors Club in its current state under the tenure of Fun Publications. And now, only mere minutes away from 2017 (speaking from the Eastern Time Zone, that is), the Club has released its final Transformers prose story to the public via its Twitter. Titled "Last Sunset", this story is the fourth and final part of the "Spatiotemporal Challengers" saga that has starred a team of GoBots partaking in a mission on Classics Earth (which had been pulled into the Shattered Glass universe in the BotCon 2012 comic) to save their own home universe from certain destruction. In the previous third part, the GoBots had finally met up with the heroic Classics Autobots and prepared to take the next step in their mission. This final chapter tells that story.

    In a move no one saw coming, the Transformers Collectors Club has added one additional Beast Wars: Uprising story to its website's Prose Fiction section. Titled "The Inexorable March", this story serves as a coda that follows on from the aftermath of the previous finale story "Derailment", providing us a look at both Cybertron in its new era of peace and the eras to come over the course of a thousand years after the Grand Uprising's conclusion. If you haven't yet read or haven't yet finished reading the previous BWU story, it is strongly recommended that you do so before reading this coda story.

    Drawing ever closer to its end, the Transformers Collectors Club has yet again updated its website's Prose Fiction section with another of its last prose stories, this one being the long-awaited conclusion to the 2008-2011 Shattered Glass prose fiction. Titled "Coalescence", this story takes place after all of the 2008-2011 SG prose stories and 2009's six-part magazine comic story "Reunification", but before the BotCon 2012 comic story "Invasion". It sets out to fill in many blanks in the larger Shattered Glass storyline, finally presenting us with the SG Underbase that SG Side Burn, SG Demolishor, and SG Jetstorm were previously after in the 2011 story "Transhuman", as well as more focus on SG Cyclonus following his having been manipulated by SG Alpha Trion into assassinating SG Megatron in "Reunification".

    As the Transformers Collectors Club run by Fun Publications comes ever close to the end of its existence (this Saturday), it has endeavored to update its website's Prose Fiction section with the FINAL Beast Wars: Uprising prose story, which is also to be one of the very last Transformers prose stories published by the Club in its current state. Titled "Derailment", this final story spans a whopping 179 pages, making it more like five-chapter novella in digital form, and features a cast of over 200 characters!

    After the events of the previous story, Cybertron has now firmly entered the Vehicon Apocalypse as a widespread plague has been unleashed upon the populace, mutating every Maximal and Predacon in sight into the Beast Machines flavor of mindless Vehicon drones. Things have never been more dire for the Resistance as Lio Convoy struggles to continue the Grand Uprising against the Builders. The fate of Cybertron is at stake as all sides of the conflict (Lio Convoy and the Resistance, the Builders, the Ex-Bots, Megatron and the Darksyders, Galvatron, Galva Convoy, Lord Imperious Delirious, and more) come into play for this epic conclusion of the Beast Wars: Uprising saga!

    The Transformers Collectors Club has updated its Prose Fiction section with the latest addition to the Beast Wars: Uprising storyline. Titled "Safe Spaces", this story is Part 3 of the four-part Beast Wars: Uprising finale, and stars the young Maximal leader Cheetor (the "First Resistor") and the imposing Predacon elder Preditron (the patriarch of his race). Awhile back, Cheetor and Preditron were freed from their imprisonment within Fortress Maximus, and have served together with the Resistance ever since. However, these two symbols of propaganda soon find that all is not what it seems for one of their routine missions deep within Resistance territory, where something malevolent is afoot. Also, Ser-Ket is back, whom we haven't seen since the second Beast Wars: Uprising prose story, "Head Games".
