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 the March 2015 release of Masterpiece MP-24 Star Saber draws ever nearer, Hisashi Yuki and TakaraTomy continue to promote the goodness of this figure by Tweeting all kinds of wonderful in hand images of this figure. The photos from Yuki-san show us a ton of looks at this figure's amazing robot mode, articulated in numerous poses, plus a look at Saber and the Vehicle Mode.

    Plus, photos from TakaraTomy meanwhile show us a look at something more. The shield that comes with the figure is able to be used as a display stand for the figure's vehicle mode or for the V-Star! Let's Say Go through the space bridge and behold!

    Hold onto your hats, folks! Last night, the Transformers Collectors Club announced a "Once in a Decade" Archive Sale of many of the their Transformers exclusives from 2005 to 2014. They're needing to clear out space in their warehouse and have put up so many leftover exclusives for sale on the Club store, but in very limited quantities. Unsurprisingly, many of these super rare, super limited toys sold out in a matter of minutes after the sale went up the night before, but as if this typing, 18 Archived items still remain in stock (the sold out ones are labeled as "Discontinued"), so head on over to the Club store to get any of these past that you wish to purchase, for prices far more reasonable than eBay!

    The CYBERGEEKS Alliance Facebook has posted a rather intriguing bit of news in the form of an advertisement for a new Lucky Draw figure. Dubbed "Silver Jetfire", this figure is a redeco of Generations Leader class Jetfire with its entire body decked out in metallic silver paint! The figure appears to be a product of Hasbro Asia since the ad is for the Asian retailer AEON stores. The flyer provides the details on how to enter to win the Silver Jetfire figure, which can be found beyond the space bridge.

    Since a rather vocal portion of the fandom has expressed a distaste for the chrome on Generations Leader Jetfire, Transformers fan customizer Cheetimus Primal has posted a simple how-to video demonstrating quick and affordable means to remove the chrome from the figure that leaves the bright red plastic underneath the chrome fully exposed and chrome-free. This should save a lot of money for folks who are interested in getting the Takara version mainly for its lack of chrome. Through the space bridge for the video.

    Transformers Colombia has come through with another batch of images regarding upcoming Transformers toys. This time, however, they aren't images of toys, but scans of a preliminary product catalog (in Spanish) with information about the upcoming Transformers: Robots in Disguise toyline coming in 2015. Though the images are small, they give us a rundown on the line's size classes, which include Warriors (new name for Deluxe), Legion, Hyperchange Heroes, One-Step Changers, 6" Titan Guardians, 12" Titan Heroes, and 12" Titan Heroes w/ Features. Plus more of the Hero Mashers. Though, do note that the products shown here are not final, nor are the prices (which are shown here in pesos).

    The scans also contain some handwritten notes, including one mentioning that the new RID cartoon will air on March 15 on Cartoon Network, BUT that is more than likely in regards to the Latin American version airing in Colombia rather than the English version, which will air on Hub Network at a currently still unknown airdate.

    TFND has posted in hand images of the Platinum Edition Autobots United 5-pack. The set contains redecos of Voyager Evasion Mode Optimus Prime, Deluxe Bumblebee, Deluxe Drift, Deluxe Crosshairs, and Voyager Hound. Though Optimus sports a new deco that is more G1-based, the other four all bear decos that strive more for movie-accuracy. The figures are also compared to each of the following: Optimus to the other Platinum Edition that comes with Grimlock, Bumblebee to Takara's Movie Advanced Series version, and Drift/Crosshairs/Hound to the standard Hasbro versions.

    As we continue to grow and develop through new platforms like TFDb, so too does our toy database. Astute viewers will notice that we have made a number of updates and additions to our 2001 and 2002 Transformers Sections. If you're viewing our site on a traditional web browser, you will notice the theme background based on R.i.D. and Armada (comics). In addition to the mainline figures such as Armada and RID also note the addition of e-Hobby line, Go-Bots and filled in a few other small gaps... If anyone out there is an expert on the Takara Micron line, please feel free to send me a line that's next on the to-do list...

    Available September 2nd, SHOUT! Factory releases Beast Machines -The Complete Series, DVD set. See attached pictures w/ the complete press release of our sneak preview... While deemed controversial by Transformers fans in its day (2000-2001) we liked the show quite a bit. -back then, about the only thing we didn't care for was the large level of dissimilarity between the way the characters looked in the show vs the early waves of toys. Thankfully, Hasbro made up for the discrepancies throughout the years releasing toys like -show-accurate Air Attack Optimus Primal and Megabolt Megatron in later RID line, and even now A Deluxe scale Tankor in 2014 Generations line! :)
