    Toy giant Hasbro, hates boys?! You decide!
    Brazenly ignoring that fact that girls only want to play with tea sets and their “Inept Software Developer” Barbies, Hasbro has done the unthinkable and created a female Transformer. Cinema Blend is reporting that “Victorion” is the result of a survey asking for more diversity from Hasbro’s line of

    The 70th episode (been decades since we've had this many episodes of a TF cartoon) of Transformers: Rescue Bots has aired on Discovery Family. Titled "The New Recruits", this episode marks the momentous occasion of having the very first new members to join the Rescue Bots team (High Tide's a guest star and an ally, but not a full member of the team). Two new Autobots come into play and are recruited to join Rescue Force Sigma-17. However, all is not entirely as it seems since these two newcomers hold a dark secret from the past. What is the secret they hide and can they be counted on and trusted? Let's find out.

    The sixth episode of the 2015 Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon has aired on Cartoon Network in the U.S. Titled "As the Kospego Commands!", a new Decepticon crime lord has surfaced, posing as mythical creature to force superstitious humans into serving it. However, there is something far more sinister afoot, as this Decepticon is having the humans go around looking for building material to construct something for their master. What are they building and can the Autobot stop the project in time? Let's find out.

    BotCon.com has updated with info regarding its first three special guests. The first one, Frank Welker, was already announced previously, but now we have the exact information on the special "Frank Welker VIP Pass" that grants fans exclusive access to several Frank Welker-related perks, such as autographs, photographs, and first seating at the Frank Welker Panel.

    The two other guests have also been revealed to be Generation 1 alumni actors Susan Blu and John Moschitta, Jr. Susan Blu has been with the Transformers media for a long time, not only as the voices of G1 Arcee, Beast Wars Transmutate, Animated Arcee, and more, but also as the voice director for the Beast Wars, Beast Machines, Animated, and Prime (episodes 1-11) cartoons. John Moschitta, Jr. is known as the voices of G1 Blurr and Animated Blurr, and is the world's fastest talking man.

    This will be Frank Welker's first BotCon (and first convention ever), Susan Blu's third BotCon (after 1998 and 2014), and John Moschitta's second BotCon (after 2000).

    BotCon.com has updated with official images of the 2015 "Cybertron's Most Wanted" exclusive Megatron figure. Dubbed "The Boss", this figure is a remold of the Prime Arms Micron War Breakdown figure using the truck grill piece from the Silas Breakdown version of the mold, and complete with a brand new headsculpt. Its deco is colored as a homage to Dark of the Moon Megatron, and its bio describes him as a version of that Megatron who did not die at the end of the movie, along with the Optimus Prime of his universe being succeeded by a Movierverse version of Rodimus Prime.

    The figure also comes with three Arms Microns. Boombox is a black redeco of Gora, changing from a gorilla into Megatron's fusion cannon. Heavyweight is a pink redeco of B.H. ("Beha"), changing from a stubby robot into Megatron's energon flail. And Scalpel is a white redeco of Magi, changing from a mantis into a dual-bladed weapon.

    Fun to imagine what the hopefully-soon-to-be-unveiled Combaticons will look like in their Combiner Wars iteration! I came across each of the following images while brainstorming... It's a fair to guess that they will mostly be moderate-to-slight-retools of existing CW toys, but the speculation is still fun, none-the-less! Several images are courtesy of DeviantArt blog posts. Too fun not to share!

    The fourth exclusive for the BotCon 2015 "Cybertron's Most Wanted" box set has been revealed via another YouTube video. Dubbed "The Boss", this figure is especially special since it A) is a mold never released by Hasbro, B) has a brand new headsculpt, and C) comes with not one, not two, but THREE Arms Microns! However, the character is a familiar one, but with a new twist on it to make it different from one we've seen before. Watch the video to see who it is!

    The forthcoming Asia Premium, Optimus Prime Ultimate Edition features the consensus-best-mold of movie-verse Optimus Prime, with DoTM upgraded abs, the most highly detailed paint aps I've ever seen (on any Transformers toy), and every accessory that's ever come with the many versions of this spectacular toy, plus new accessories never seen before, like the Shockwave-gut-destroying-'brass'-knuckles... Like seeing Optimus Prime on-screen, there's so much to take in, it's a little overwhelming!

    The 69th episode of Transformers: Rescue Bots has aired on Discovery Family. Though titled "The Last of Morocco", this is not the season finale (as there are still nine episodes left of the season). Yet, this could be the end of the Rescue Bots' long-lasting conflict with Dr. Thaddeus Morocco that has been ever-ongoing since early in the first season. In this one, an old friend of Morocco's, none other than the classic science fiction author Jules Verne, travels through time into the present in search of Morocco (Morocco has been alive since the 19th Century). What is Mr. Verne's intention of finding Morocco and what role does the Rescue Team play in this? Let's find out.

    BotCon.com has updated with official images of the recently revealed BotCon 2015 "Cybertron's Most Wanted" exclusive Shattered Glass Autobot Stepper. Dubbed "The Loose Cannon" of the set, Stepper is a redeco of Reveal the Shield Special Ops Jazz in a Halloween-based deco consisting primarily of reddish orange with the inclusion of black, white, and gold. He also comes with his Targetmaster partner Nebulon, a redeco of Universe Cyclonus's Targetmaster figure Nightstick. Stepper is meant to be the Shattered Glass counterpart of the 1987 Japanese Autobot Targetmaster Stepper, who was later given the Hasbro name of Ricochet. And although there has already been a Shattered Glass Ricochet toy, made back in 2008 from the Cybertron Crosswise mold, this new Stepper toy is meant to be a brand new character separate from SG Ricochet.

    YOUR RESPONSE NEEDED! Earlier this week I received an email from Hasbro, asking us to poll our site visitors for votes for nominees for this year's Transformers Hall of Fame. Full rules are listed below, but this year it's a little different than year's past. Hasbro wants to know the top three nominees we recieve in each of three different categories:

    • FAVORITE TRANSFORMERS CHARACTER (Fictional Robot Character)
    • BEST COMBINER ROBOT (Fictional Robot Character)

    This year, we'll try to simplify the process. One vote, in each category per person. -Make sure you don't vote for someone who's already been voted in (see below for complete listing.) Votes will be counted either on this news thread in our Unicron.com forums, OR you can vote on our Facebook news feed, if you prefer the social media route. But please don't delay, we've only got until Monday to turn our results in. - Sorry I didn't get this posted sooner. Death in the family has had me off the grid for the last several days...

    Complete contest rules listed in our forum thread below....

    Today, Fun Publications has posted a YouTube video revealing the third figure for the BotCon 2015 "Cybertron's Most Wanted" convention set. Referred to as "the Loose Cannon", this toy is a redeco of Reveal the Shield Deluxe class Special Ops Jazz with a redeco of Universe Deluxe class Cyclonus's Targetmaster Nightstick figure. He is a brand new character who, unbeknownst to much of the fandom at the time, first appeared as a cameo in the BotCon 2012 comic story called "Invasion". As to who this character is, check out the video for the reveal.

    Last week, we were given a glimpse at the second BotCon 2015 exclusive to be in the "Cybertron' Most Wanted" boxed set. The figure was revealed to be Battletrap, the Generation 1 1987 Decepticon Duocon reimagined as a Triple Changer, remolded from the Generations Thrilling 30 Voyager Springer mold with a new headsculpt. Now, BotCon.com has finally updated with official images of this "Decepticon Muscle: Battletrap" figure in all its glory.

    Japanese retailer e-HOBBY has posted the first official images of the new Unite Warriors Grand Scourge exclusive figure. A redeco of Generations Combiner Wars Optimus Prime (and the first release of the Optimus version of the mold in Japan), this figure sports an all new deco based heavily on Grand Scourge from Transformers: Super Link (Japanese version of Transformers: Energon), who was a "Nemesis Prime"-based redeco of the Pla-Kit Collection Grand Convoy Super Mode model kit (Grand Convoy being Energon Optimus Prime).

    Included with this figure are the two guns from the normal Optimus version (named here as "Scourge Guns") and a red redeco of either the giant butcher's cleaver that came with Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters Beast Hunter Optimus Prime, or the slightly less giant but still very big butcher's cleaver that came with Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters Beast Tracker Optimus Prime. The red one seen here has been given the name "Matrix Breaker".

    According to Grand Scourge's bio, he is able to transcend time and space, travelling between dimensions, making him likely to be the very same person as the original Grand Scourge whose original pack-in story left his fate ambiguous.

    Presently, G.I. Joe fans are enjoying a weekend at the JoeCon 2015 convention, at which came a revelation of particular interest to Transformers fans. Yesterday, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club Roundtable Panel featured the reveal of a new G.I. Joe/Transformers Crossover exclusive set: Old Snake w/ two Stealth B.A.T.s (Battle Android Troopers).

    Old Snake is none other than Cobra Commander himself from the Transformers: Generation 1 season 3 cartoon episode "Only Human", while the Stealth B.A.Ts. are redeco of Transformers Prime: Robots in Disguise Deluxe class Soundwave. The set will likely be available from the Club Stores of both Collectors Clubs, and will be the second Joe/TF crossover set to come from Fun Publication, following the previously-announced Marissa Faireborn w/ Afterbreaker set.

    Seibertron.com was in attendance of the announcement and was lent a sample of the set by Pete Sinclair to provide images of the set. While only one B.A.T. is pictured, the final set will include two.

    The 68th episode of Transformers: Rescue Bots has aired on Discovery Family. Titled "Turning the Tide", the Bots get a visit from a new Autobot sent over by Optimus Prime to train them. It is not anyone we have met before, as it is a brand new character in the form of High Tide. He is an old friend of Optimus's and has come to train the Bots for ocean rescues. What sort of character is High Tide and what kind of training will he be putting our heroes through? Let's find out.

    The fourth episode of the new 2015 Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon has aired on Cartoon Network in the U.S. In this one, titled "More Than Meets the Eye", we get some focus on two of the Autobots' younger allies: Russell and Fixit. Being new to the area (having come to live with his dad back in episode 1), Russell has yet to make any human friends, and is encouraged by the others to try and befriend the local neighborhood kids. Meanwhile, Fixit gets his moment in the battlefield when a new mission to stop the latest Decepticon convict requires his technical expertise, but he finds himself in for much more than he was expecting. Can both Russell and Fixit overcome their personal issues to help them each get through their tough situations? Let's find out.

    Fun Publications has returned to YouTube once again to reveal the second figure in the BotCon 2015 "Cybertron's Most Wanted" boxed set, continuing in their Easter egg style reveals. Reveal Number 2 is Battletrap the Muscle, a remold of Generations Thrilling 30 Voyager class Springer with an all new headsculpt! We can only hope that there will also be a Flywheels made from the Blitzwing/Doubledealer mold to go with this figure. Additionally, from what info we are presented from his bio, this version of Battletrap seems to originally hail from (at least, some version of) the Dreamwave G1 continuity. Official images are still forthcoming, but here is the video reveal.

    Happy Easter, everybody! On this fine day, we present to you all some wonderful news to come from anime fansubbing group Karyuudo Fansubs (who had previously fansubbed Car Robots, Zone, and Legends of the Microns). They have announced that the next Japanese Transformers cartoon to be subtitled in English from them will be none other than what is considered a Holy Grail among the fandom, Beast Wars II: Super Lifeform Transformers!

    Broadcast on Japanese television from 1998 to 1999, Beast Wars Second was the first Japanese-original Beast Era cartoon, and the first Japanese-original Transformers cartoon since 1989's Transformers: Victory series and 1990's Transformers: Zone home video single episode. Released at a time when Japan was wanting more Beast Wars after the first season, but seasons 2 and 3 were not ready yet, Beast Wars Second was produced by Ashi Production (known nowadays as Production Reed) as a spin-off series starring all new characters in an all new setting.

    Beast Wars Second tells the story of the Cybertrons/Maximals led by Lio Convoy vs. the Destrons/Predacons led by Galvatron, who fought each other over a mysterious new energy called Angolmois on the post-apocalyptic planet Gaea in the far distant future. And soon, Karyuudo Fansubs will be releasing a subtitled-in-English version for all fans in the Western World to finally see. After waiting for 17 long years, this show will at last no longer be the enigma it has always been. Through the space bridge for the announcement.

    After two weeks of rerunning the first two episodes, Cartoon Network (in the U.S.) has finally aired the third episode of the new 2015 Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon. This episode acts as a sort of spiritual third part to the two-part pilot episode, as it establishes the show's main premise of hunting escaped Decepticon criminals, and introduces the first main villain of the show, Steeljaw, who has a very unique agenda among most Decepticon leaders.

    The team is divided in this episode in more ways than one, as they split up into groups of two to go after two different Decepticon signatures. Bumblebee and Grimlock find themselves up against a salty sea dog of a Decepticon while Sideswipe and Strongarm are constantly at odds with each other in their own attempts to apprehend another Con. Can both groups find a way to overcome these difficulties and stop each Decepticon? Though the space bridge for the episode and discuss.
