DUDES! It is difficult to put into words just how crazy/rare/unbelievable the toys of this set are! As the co-founder of one of the world’s largest Transformers Collector Sites, I have never seen these cassette toys except through photos. The extreme rarity of Dairu and Uruaz would have commanded prices in the high-hundreds/low thousands even in the earliest days of Botcon, when rare G1 Japan-exclusive toys we’re no where near as outrageously expensive as they are today. Now, to have the ability to buy a faithful reproduction of this hyper rarity, in a reasonably priced $59.99 Convention exclusive.... is simply mind blowing. Thank you Hasbro!
New stock photos and product info have been added to HasbroToyShop for the upcoming San Diego Comic Con (apparently not completely) Exclusive.
Studio Series presents Vol.1 of a totally awesome convention exclusive series. Packed with retro radness, this installment features a bodaciously Special Edition Bumblebee Gold Camaro figure and 2 dynamite dino-cassette figures, Dairu and Uruaz (the evil twin of Zauru), remixed from an '80s Japan-only release.
Retro Rock Garage - Vol. 1 is a celebration of the Bumblebee movie and the awesomeness of cranking up some tunes as you tune up your ride. Especially if that ride is a righteous '77 Camaro with special edition deco that converts from robot mode in 25 steps.
"Perfect soundtrack for tuning up my '77 Chevrolet Camaro" -Charlie, Human Ally Magazine
"The movie-inspired details really come through, great one for the collection" -The Prime Times
"Wouldn't even intercept the transmission" -Soundwave, Rolling Decepticon
"Cassettes don't actually play music" -Disclaimer Weekly
• Includes: Bumblebee figure, 5 accessories, 2 mini-cassette figures, and instructions.
• Convention Exclusive Studio Series Deluxe Class Bumblebee figure with special edition deco
• Details, styling, and figure scale inspired by the rockin' world of Transformers: Bumblebee
• 2 dino-cassette figures based on a classic 1980's release, sold only in Japan
• Premium packaging inspired by old-school mix tape style
• Show off the exclusive Bumblebee figure inside a cassette-inspired Retro Rock Garage - Vol 1 display
A special month of Tantrum themed events has just kicked off in the mobile app game, Forged To Fight. You can win or earn the character in 3, 4 even a 5-Star versions through crystals or via gameplay with chips that allow you to buy the -star version you want. I’m excited that they’re adding the character just in time for the release of the Power of the Primes Predacons set. Unfortunately though, the game’s 3D models seem to be an original design, not based on the toy.
Anger is all Tantrum knows and violence is all he understands, so don’t expect to find reason or measure in his actions. As an ancestor of modern Predacons, Tantrum's alternate mode serves as a good indicator of his skillset and overall bullish temperament.
Complete character info and specs found on the KABAM site

Note ****This photo is a FAN-Made digibash**** but it does provide interesting food for thought! Came across this photo on Twitter, which is a digital re-color of the recently announced Punch-Counterpunch, shown next to the Takara Targetmaster that came with Takara Legends Topspin. His theory being that this toy, recolored could make a fabulous Pointblank w/ Peacemaker. What would you think about that, if the next iteration of Transformers brought back Targetmasters?!

Transformers: Unicron #1 (of 6)
The Darkest Hour has come. Optimus Prime stages a desperate gamble as the world-eater, Unicron, approaches Windblade’s homeworld—but that’s just the appetizer. The main course is Cybertron (with a side of Earth)… and it’s starting to look like no force in the galaxy can stop the end from coming.
REVEALED! Repugnus w/ Titanmaster Dastard, & Prime Master Solus Prime
We’ve heard rumors and product listings for this premium deco retool before. Until today though, we hadn’t seen it. Feast your eyes on this G1 original Monsterbot, brought back in modern times. If you were lucky enough to get your hands on the super limited quantity Grotusque at NYCC, you can complete the trio in full Deluxe class figure scale! Don’t know if Repugnus will be in such limited quantity as Grotusque, but stay tuned. We are sure to learn much more about this figure at San Diego comic con coming up next week! Unicron.com will be there to provide complete coverage.
Transformers & Magic: The Gathering Meet! - Card Game Announcement
San Diego Comic Con is right around the corner and with that, means reveals of new and upcoming Transformers projects. Thanks to Hasbro for passing along the following info! More info to come from our complete coverage at SDCC next week - #UNICRON
"Today, Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast revealed new details of the upcoming TRANSFORMERS Trading Card Game. Players build a new deck composed of TRANSFORMERS character cards (which are twice the size of standard cards and can be flipped from bot-mode to alt-mode and back) and power them up with battle cards.
At launch, players can look forward to the AUTOBOTS Starter Set and Booster Packs to enhance their decks, though fans can get their first look at the game with the Convention Edition at San Diego Comic-Con 2018 where fans can get exclusive cards that are available in limited quantities...
“The TCG format lets us pull TRANSFORMERS characters from across the brand’s massive history. From Bumblebee to Sunstorm – the game is digging deep into the TRANSFORMERS lore,” said Drew Nolosco, TRANSFORMERS Trading Card Game Brand Manager. “We can even focus on different aspects of the same character. Optimus Prime, for example, is immensely powerful in combat, but he’s also a master tactician. The Transformers TCG will let players explore the characters’ depth through engaging and tactical gameplay.”
At launch, TRANSFORMERS fans can look forward to the following:
· AUTOBOTS Starter Set - The AUTOBOTS Starter Set contains cards for two players to begin gameplay, and features OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, IRONHIDE and RED ALERT character cards. It will be available for purchase at retailers in the United States beginning on Sept. 28, 2018, and in certain other markets later in 2018.
· TRANSFORMERS Trading Card Game Booster Packs - Players can add to their character card teams and battle card decks for full gameplay with Booster Packs. Each Booster Pack contains 1 TRANSFORMERS character card and 7 battle cards from a pool of 40 character cards and 81 battle cards. Booster Packs will be sold separately and available for purchase at retailers in the United States beginning on Sept. 28, 2018, and in certain other markets later in 2018.
Fans can get a first look at four cards for the TRANSFORMERS Trading Card Game in July with the TRANSFORMERS Trading Card Game Convention Edition. Limited quantities will be available for purchase at Comic-Con International 2018 in San Diego, Gen Con 2018 in Indianapolis and through the Hasbro Toy Shop at HasbroToyShop.com, where available, after the conventions. The TRANSFORMERS Trading Card Game Convention Edition contains two TRANSFORMERS character cards (CLIFFJUMPER – RENEGADE WARRIOR and SLIPSTREAM – STRATEGIC SEEKER) and two battle cards (All-Out Attack and Tandem Targeting System) not available in the AUTOBOTS Starter Set or the TRANSFORMERS Trading Card Game Booster Packs.
REVEALED: Punch-Counterpunch with Prime Master Prima!

Writing Great Dialogue Panel
Thursday, July 19 • 6:00pm – 7:00pm Room 9
Short. Meaningful. Memorable. How do you write great dialogue? What works and what doesn’t work? Writers from animation and comics, including Nicole Dubuc (My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Transformers: Rescue Bots), Marsha Griffin (Guardians of the Galaxy, Miles from Tomorrowland), Craig Miller (Curious George, Beast Wars), Eugene Son (Avengers: Secret Wars, Saint Seiya), and Matt Wayne (Justice League Unlimited, Cannon Busters) talk about how to craft a great line.
The Transformers: Encore line of reissues has been dabbling in some post-G1 figures as of late, beginning with God Fire Convoy from Car Robots and to be continuing with Returns Convoy for Beast Wars Returns (Beast Machines). Now, a third post-G1 Encore toy has been revealed and is the first one to truly be from a completely non-G1 continuity altogether. Its name is Unicron (Micron Aggregate Color).
A redeco of the Armada Unicron mold, this is not the Chaos Bringer himself, but a green copy of him that was formed by a massive amount of Mini-Cons combining together as one, to fight against their evil creator in the final few episodes of the Transformers: Armada cartoon, hence the "Micron Aggregate Color" label ("Micron" being the Japanese term for "Mini-Con"). Previously, in 2004, a toy of this "Unicron of Light" had been released in limited quantities as a Lucky Draw figure over in Japan, but this Encore release will not only see a much wider release but will also sport a vastly different deco from the Lucky Draw, being almost completely green and turquoise instead of the Lucky Draw being half-teal/half-gray.
Unicron (Micron Aggregate Color) is set for release in December 2018. Official images can be found below, courtesy of Autobase Aichi. ...
Today, the tenth and final episode of Machinima's new Transformers: Power of the Primes online mini-series has aired on Go90 and Tumblr. Titled "Saga's End", the series and entire Prime Wars Trilogy comes to a close as Megatron, Optimal Optimus, Windblade, Perceptor, and Grimlock all aim to stop Megatronus, Unicron, and the Matrix of Chaos once and for all, in a final decisive battle that will determine the fates of Cybertron and the Transformers universe forevermore. ...
Earlier this month, from Saturday, June 9th, to Sunday, June 10th, the second annual Pete's Robot Convention, RoboCon 2018, was held at the Cincinnati Marriot at Rivercenter in Covington, KY (just outside of Cincinnati, OH). As a sort of spiritual successor to BotCon, the convention featured a number of events and reveals that hearkened back to those days of old, albeit on a much smaller scale more akin to the earlier years of BotCon in the 90s.
Yours truly was on site to attend this convention and much of what it had to offer. Below you will find a complete report of many of its events, which can best be viewed in the forum, rather than on Facebook, for the best reading. ...
The ninth episode of Machinima's new Transformers: Power of the Primes online mini-series has aired on Go90 and Tumblr. Titled "Megatronus Unleashed", this penultimate episode sees a showdown between Megatronus and Unicron, the latter of whom having fully possessed the body of Rodimus Cron, now upgraded to resemble his Rodimus Unicronus toy. Meanwhile, the others attempt to destroy Megatronus's machine, on which the Matrix of Leadership reaches out to Optimus Primal... ...
The eighth episode of Machinima's new Transformers: Power of the Primes online mini-series has aired on Go90 and Tumblr. Titled "Collision Course", Megatronus has finally acquired all three relics that he needs to complete his objective in resurrecting Solus Prime, draining the sparks of every Transformer in the universe to do so. Megatron and his team, however, storm the Well of Sparks for a showdown with the mad, ancient Prime. ...
