    MTV has posted an article and video in which actor Mark Wahlberg, who played Cade Yeager in Transformers: Age of Extinction, confirms in an interview he did for his role The Gambler, that he will be returning for two more Transformers films; the fifth and sixth ones. The man who's known for not doing sequels will be returning for 2016's "Transformers 5" and whenever the sixth film is due out.

    Walhberg also hints at the possibility of Michael Bay also being involved in the next movie, but does NOT specify what Bay's involvement will be. Recall that there were previous rumors of Bay stepping down to not direct TF5, which a lot of news sources seem to believe to be valid. Comic Book Movie even claims that Bay will just be producing the fifth movie instead of directing it. But this isn't about Bay, it's about the Wahlberg confirming his return, which can be viewed beyond the space bridge.

    RiD 1-Step Changer Underbite transformation video. Looks pretty cool in both modes. But if there is a way to get this thing to stay in it's orthodontic-ly challenged Dino-dragon mode, then I cannot figure it out.

    Calling all fans of Transformers: Armada and Japanese Transformers in general! Anime fansubbing group Karyuudo Fansubs (the same group that gave us complete subs of Car Robots and Zone), has announced a surprise release of another subtitled Transformers series! It is none other than the first of what would become known as the Micron Trilogy in Japan (and the Unicron Trilogy in the West), Chou Robot Seimeitai Transformer: Micron Densetsu (Super Robot Lifeform Transformers: Legends of the Microns)!

    Released in 2002 in the U.S. as Transformers: Armada, the English version of this series was plagued by many flaws that stemmed from a hastily rushed production, resulting in a product with a less-then-stellar dialogue script, subpar acting, and many many MANY animation errors. When released in Japan, however, many of the animation errors were corrected, and the acting and dialogue were much more refined. And now, thanks to Karyuudo Fansubs, we can finally view the battles between the Cybertrons, Destrons, Microns, and Unicron how they always were meant to be, complete with English subtitles.

    PLUS, they've included a TON of extra material for our enjoyment, including a re-syncing of the English dubbed version to the superior Japanese video, at long last giving fans a release of the English Armada series with the superior, less-erroneous Japanese video! Through the space to learn more!

    Jagex and Hasbro have made an announcement on the official Transformers Universe website that the online game shall be closing its doors for good in January 2015. Despite the game having seemingly been stuck forever in beta testing (or at least some form of development limbo), it will be shutting down indefinitely. For all the details concerning this unfortunate news, head through the space bridge.

    IDW artist Alex Milne has posted the interlocking 30th Anniversary cover artwork that is comprised of cover art from Transformers #36 (formerly Robots in Disguise) and More Than Meets The Eye #36. The artwork features 30 characters from all across the brand, including the 1980s Generation 1, Generation 2, the Beast Era, Car Robots/Robots in Disguise 2001, IDW's Generation 1, the Movieverse, Animated, and Prime. Milne goes on to explain how much love and effort was put into making this art, which can all be read beyond the space bridge.

    TakaraTomy has Tweeted new comparison images between the Generation 1 and Masterpiece MP-22 toys of Ultra Magnus. These images show us a good look at just how different the Masterpiece is from the original, from its darker shade of blue to its more sophisticated transformation. And yet, the two still share so much in common from an aesthetic perspective. To see all the images, head through the space bridge.

    TF Yuki has Tweeted new in hand and packaged images of the TakaraTomy release of Generations Jetfire in the Transformers Legends line. LG07 Jetfire is a slight redeco of the Hasbro version with its biggest differences being a complete lack of any chrome, along with the toy's arm and leg gun barrels painted black, its ankles painted red, and its torso having red stripes that span the entire width of the chest. This in turn makes the figure slightly less show-accurate than the Hasbro version, but it does make it closer to both the original intentions that Hasbro had planned for the figure, as well as being accurate to how Jetfire currently looks in the IDW comics. Henkei! Henkei! Starscream is also included for size reference. Through the space bridge for the pics.

    Newsarama has posted Diamond's latest announcement for the 12 Gold Sponsor Titles of Free Comic Book Day 2015, which include the first reveal of a comic book issue #0 release of Transformers: Robots in Disguise, the new cartoon series for 2015. It is currently not known if this comic will tie in with the cartoon like the comics for the movies, Animated, and FOC/Prime did, or if it will be another "same basic story, different continuity" case like Marvel G1, Dreamwave G1, and Dreamwave Armada/Energon were to their respective cartoons, but head through the space bridge for the solicitation.

    TakaraTomy has announced a new Age of Extinction-based store exclusive in the form of the Temenos Sword Present Campaign. A redeco of the Temenos Sword (or Sword of Temenos) that came with AD31 Armor Knight Optimus Prime, this sword is colored directly after its onscreen appearance in the movie in its nonpowered form. This sword is exclusive to Japanese Toys 'R' Us stores with the purchase of 3000 yen of Transformers products. It will be available starting this month and is limited to 6000 pieces.

    For those curious, the word "Temenos" is a Greek word that refers to a sacred place or holy sanctum, and is the word that Lockdown spoke in the film when he welcomed Optimus back to the "Knights' Temenos", the knight ship's holy of holies that Lockdown had disgraced with his rarest and most dangerous captures.

    TAG Hobby has posted photos of a store launch event that took place in Hong Kong, which featured a heavy amount of the new Generations Combiner Wars toys. These images highlight many of the first wave Deluxes, Voyagers, and Legends class toys, even showing that some of the non-combining Legends can be fitted onto Ultra Prime's torso with some fiddling and imagination. To see all the images, head through the space bridge.

    Remember Mega Drive Megatron? The collaboration between TakaraTomy ARTS and Sega? Changes from Megatron to replica Sega Mega Drive? Well, it looks like it's getting two special edition redecos! The first is a Lucky Draw version of the figure called Mega Drive Megatron Gold Ver. Naturally, it is decked out in gold chrome, as the images from Famitsu reveal. Unlike the regular version, instead of having a Sonic the Hedgehog cartridge, this version will come with a Bare Knuckle cartridge (Japanese version of Streets of Rage).

    The other limited edition figure is Sega Genesis Megatron, a redeco based on the American release of the Mega Drive, the Sega Genesis. Based on the Amazon Japan images, all of Mega Drive Megatron's red has been replaced with purple, and all of the Mega Drive details have been replaced with Genesis ones. The Sonic 1 cartridge is likewise now the American version. This figure will be limited to 1000 pieces. Through the space bridge for the pics.

    TFYuki has Tweeted a few in hand images of the TakaraTomy releases of the three Generations Deluxe fembots from the Transformers Legends line. LG10 Arcee is a show-accurate redeco of her Hasbro counterpart, LG11 Chromia is also a redeco of her Hasbro counterpart, and LG12 Windblade is a comic-accurate redeco based more directly on the Sarah Stone artwork of the character. To see all the images, head through the space bridge.

    Earlier today, Discovery Family aired a special double dose of Transformers: Rescue Bots episodes instead of the usual single episode. What makes this double-airing especially special is that one of them was one of the two long lost unaired episodes missing from the original airing of season 2. For the first time, episode 46 has finally aired 13 episodes after its intended placement. Titled "The Riders of Midwinter", a terrible snowstorm has brought its wrath upon Griffin Rock just in time for the holidays. The most likely reason for this episode's delayed airing was so it could air on the weekend of the Winter Solstice.

    Plus, the newest episode of season 3 also aired. Episode 60, titled "Switcheroo", dives further into the science fiction fantasy aspect of this show as a space nebula somehow causes our heroes to all switch personalities. And what's more is that we finally have YouTube uploads to view the episodes! However, these are likely temporary uploads and will eventually be replaced with links to other sources when the YouTube videos inevitably go dark. Through the space bridge for the episodes.

    Continuing to fill in some of the gaps within our database, we continuing with the 2003 Transformers Section. Of course, it was one of our personal favorite years as it brought the first legitimate UNICRON figure, fully transformable, huge, posable and in heavily featured in the ongoing Transformers Armada series cartoons and comics. It won ToyFair's best toy of the year and even inspired us to produce our second accessory set, a stand so he could float in planet mode.

    The year and this section now includes all kinds of other Transformers goodies such as:
    * hundreds of new package art and instructions scans.
    * and over a hundred new character pages in new categories like Go-Bots, Micron Legend (Takara Exclusives), Commemorative Series, Botcon and more...

    Hope you enjoy the walk down memory lane and have a great weekend all!

    Smythtoys.com has posted pictures of new RID toys including previously only glimpsed images of Warrior (Deluxe) Class Drift!
    Decepticons beware, because this Warrior Class figure converts in a heartbeat from robot mode to vehicle mode, and he’s got weapons grew to slash his foes into scrap! Convert him in a few steps to either mode, and keep converting him back and forth so his Decepticon enemies can’t keep up!

    It was bound to happen sooner or later, but it's sadly sooner. Word has come about that Netflix will be removing all of its Transformers cartoons on January 1, 2015. This includes Generation 1, Beast Wars, Prime, and Rescue Bots. Likewise, other Hasbro-related cartoons that are set to expire on that date are G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, G.I. Joe: Renegades, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Jem, and more. The reason for this is that it is standard procedure, as all shows on Netlfix are seasonal, not permanent. Even Dark of the Moon was only on there temporarily.

    However, one single piece of Transformers media remains immune to this expiration date: the Predacons Rising movie. But what do you make of this? Did all these shows have a good run for the one or two years that they were on Netflix? Or did the end of the era come too soon? Through the space bridge to discuss.

    Last Saturday, the 59th episode of Transformers: Rescue Bots, titled "Bugs in the System", aired on Discovery Family. In this one, we get a return of our old pal Doctor Thaddeus Morocco, who was last seen being finally jailed in the season 2 finale. However, even behind bars, the doctor is not one to be trifled with. He's bent on escaping his confines and has a secret weapon so unexpected that no one sees it coming. What's Morocco's game plan for when he gets out, and can the team bring him down once again? Through the space bridge for the episode and discuss.

    I pose a question to the fandom. As we continue our efforts to build Unicron.com's intensively comprehensive and ever-growing database of Transformers, adding in toys ranging from mainline figures like Generations, to off-shoot toys like Hero Mashers and/or KRE-O... I come a cross something like this, and wonder: If you go to the Master character-page of, for example, Lockdown, would you want to see HEXBUG Lockdown "toy" listed??? Does this thing belong in our Transformers toy database? what about AngryBirds Transformers Lockdown? What about toys like "Star Wars Transformers" or Animorphs? If what we want is a complete list of all "Transformers," what "toys" should be included in our database, and what shouldn't, and why?! Please share your thoughts!

    Twas bound to happen sooner or later, and it ended up happening sooner! TFND user Blacklai has posted in hand images of all of the last remaining Wave 1 Generations Combiner Wars toys (well, those that actually have the ability to combine, that is) and their combined forms! Voyager Silverbolt, Legends Powerglide, Superion, Voyager Optimus Prime, and Ultra Prime.

    All are brand new molds and designed as new updated versions of the G1 versions, save for Optimus now being a Scramble City-type combiner for the first time ever. Key things to note here are Powerglide now being an Aerialbot and forming Superion's gun, Silverbolt becomes Superion's torso by combining upside-down (Silverbolt's arms form Superion's thighs, for example), The lower legs seen in most of these Superion images are on BACKWARDS, Drag Strip is standing in for the absent Air Raid (who is to come in Wave 2), Optimus is a remold of the Motormaster figure coming in Wave 2, and Ultra Prime's chest is a dual homage to both God Ginrai (when the chest is closed) and Energon Optimus Prime Super Mode (when the chest is open). To see all the pics of the these awesome figures, head through the space bridge.

    Continuing with our own celebration of Transformers 30th Anniversary, we take a look back to the year 2002. The year was an interesting departure from those previous where Armada was launched simultaneously in Japan as in North America/Europe, the introductory year to what fans would later dub, "The Unicron Trilogy." The 2002 Transformers Section now includes:
    * New character pages for all known toys of that year, now including the Botcon Exclusives, eHobby, Go-Bots and the short lived G1 key-chain line!
    * dozens of new Transformers instructions and package art image scans.
    * new image background theme featuring the Armada Unicron, as depicted by Guido Guidi in the Dreamwave comic series of that time!
    Stay tuned, more updates of this kind are on the way.

    TFND user Blacklai has struck again with in hand images of the final Wave 1 Deluxe for the Generations Combiner Wars line: Skydive. Like with Drag Strip, Alpha Bravo, and Firefly, these images show us an extensive look at the figure in robot, vehicle, and combiner limb modes. Of curious interest is Skydive's head, which modeled not after the original toy but after the Generation 1 animation model used in the cartoon and the original comics.

    Last Saturday, the 58th episode of Transformers: Rescue Bots aired on Discovery Family. Titled "No Place Like Dome", a measure is taken to increase the defense of Griffin Rock as Doc creates a massive dome to shield the entire island from a hurricane. However, in doing so, he inadvertently allows a former threat to the island, the Vigilant Computer, to make its way back home and resume its previous domination of the island. Can Vigil be stopped like before, or has it grown stronger since last time? Through the space bridge for the episode and discuss.

    First Drag Strip, then Alpha Bravo, and now, TFND user Blacklai has posted in hand images of the the upcoming Generations Combiner Wars Deluxe class Firefly figure. A renamed iteration of Fireflight, this new figure is capable of converting from vehicle to robot to combiner arm to combiner leg and back, just like the other Deluxes. And these images show us a good look at the figure in its vehicle, robot, and combiner leg modes. Note that the combiner foot is on backwards, like with the Alpha Bravo images.
