Can the Autobots find away to get Fixit back under control and restored to his proper self before Fixit vaporizes them all into oblivion? Let's find out.

    From Sara Pitre-Durocher's Tumblr page humorously named "Pew Pew Pew" comes early design art for the "Touchbearers" who are introduced and form Victorion for the first time in IDW's recently released Combiner Hunters oneshot (drawn by Sara Pitre-Durocher). Sounds like we we will be seeing more of this team in both toy and Comic form. What you you think of the new fan voted Combiner team, the Torchbearers?
    Now that Combiner Hunters is out…! The Torchbearerrrrrs! I drew them from an early draft of the toys. There was certainly a fine balance to be found between “stay close to the toys’ designs” and...

    Finally had the chance to ask Keith David why he voiced Barricade in the games but not the film. Sadly, the only response he would give was "I don't know. They just went with someone else." #TFmoviefail

    TakaraTomy Mall has announced the next Masterpiece exclusive as MP-11T Thundercracker! Using the MP-11 version of the Seeker mold, he is a much more cartoon-accurate depiction of the character than the more realistic-based MP-7 Thundercracker was, much like how MP-11SW Skywarp was compared to MP-6 Skywarp. He is to be a TakaraTomy Mall exclusive priced at 14,904 yen (roughly $120.07 USD) and limited to 2,000 units, but it's possible this might also see a Hasbro Asia release to allow those outside of Japan a chance to purchase from other online retailers. It is to be released late in November.

    It's almost difficult to imagine what a Transformers movie would be like if it had exceptional writing, and vision beyond a single film. Sure is nice to hope... Recently, IGN sat down and talked with Daredevil writer Steven Deknight, who is among the writers braintrust. Check out their interview here.

    TRANSFORMERS official site brings up Rung; Autobot psychiatrist extraordinaire from James RobertsAlex Milne's More Than Meets the Eye Comics. Personally, I just hope this is a sign that a toy is in the works. - This fan, will continue to have hope
    Rung has followed in the footsteps of other famous psychologists and landed his own TV show. His first guest is Prowl, who is dealing with control issues. Do you think any names in particular will come up?

    Well, guys, it's here. Our first look at the upcoming Platinum Edition set of G1-based Dinobots. And it is a set of reissues, just not the ones most were hoping for. An image of the set provided by Chinese microblogging site Weibo reveals that these Dinobots are not reissues of the G1 molds, but are instead the Age of Extinction molds.

    The set contains Grimlock, Snarl, Strafe, Slug, and Slog all sporting new decos similar to the SDCC 2014 Dinobots exclusive set (and the Amazon.com exclusive Slog), but not entirely the same as those decos since these ones, while still very G1-inspired, are a bit more consistently laid out. The five figures also seem to have new G1-based robot mode headsculpts, whereas the SDCC versions were all straight redecos.

    At BotCon this year, the lineup for next year's Transformers Figure Subscription Service 4.0 was announced as being the Mayhem Attack Squad redecoed/remolded from five Generations Combiner Wars toys: Triggercon Windsweeper from Skydive, Ruckus from Offroad, Spinister from Alpha Bravo (w/ Targetmasters), Needlenose from Firefly (w/ Targermasters), Bludgeon from Onslaught, and the combined form tentatively named "Mayhem Maximus".

    However, it was also announced that there will be a sixth figure in the lineup (and a 7th mystery Deluxe figure), whose identity was not revealed then. Now, Seibertron has received a mock up of the sixth figure from the Transformers Collectors Club, finally unveiling this figure's identity. It's the Autobot Wreckers leader Impactor! Remolded from Combiner Wars Rook with a new headsculpt!

    *The following has been confirmed to be a debunked rumor.*

    A strange video has appeared on weibo that depicts what looks to be the prototype for a mysterious new figure based on Beast Wars Dinobot. The strange thing about this is that there is no indication as to just what exactly this thing is. It is completely unknown as to whether it'is even official or a third-party product. It is neither a combiner component nor a baseformer, so it can't be a Generations figure (as the next two years will be dominated by Combiner Wars and Titan Wars). It is too simplistic and not show-accurate enough to be a Masterpiece, and there aren't any of the excessive "greeble" details that are common to most third-party products. It's possible that it could be a garage kit someone built, but as mentioned, as far as we can tell, this figure is currently a complete mystery wrapped inside an enigma.

    The 18th episode of the 2015 Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon has aired on Cartoon Network in the U.S. Titled "Deep Trouble", Grimlock sustains an injury that he tries to hide from the others, believing that drawing attention to it would do more harm than good. Thus, on the Bee Team's latest mission, which takes them to the bottom of the ocean, Grimlock struggles to keep his injury a secret as the team struggles to stop the newest Decepticon from claiming an ancient Cybertronian vessel hidden under the sea. Will Grimlock's injury render him a liability, or can he overcome it to help his team? Let's find out....

    Though it began as a part of prelude material leading up to BotCon 2015, the Ask Vector Prime Facebook has continued to this day (even after a temporary spell of having been taken by Sideways). A question posted yesterday, July 13, 2015, has yielded an answer many fans have desired since the G1 cartoon episode "Divide and Conquer" aired way back in 1984. The question asked of Vector Prime pertained to the names of the two unnamed yellow and blue Rainmakers from that episode, to which Vector Prime responded not only with their names but with their personalities and abilities as well. The yellow Seeker is named "Nova Storm" (proving him to be a different character from Sunstorm) and the blue Seeker is named "Ion Storm". And we already knew the green Seeker as Acid Storm.

    Additionally, brand new artwork for all three (drawn in original designs not based on anything preexisting) was included with the answer, provided by artists Brandy Dixon, Rui Onishi and Berious. Betsy Blackie and Bill Forster (along with Dixon) also came up with the names and bios for Nova Storm and Ion Storm.

    Are you ready for the next step in Transformers toy development? Well get ready cuz after Combiner Wars we're getting Titan Wars! A new line that looks to be themed around Citybots and Headmasters! At BotCon 2015, there was a backdrop on the Combiner Wars banner at the Hasbro booth that wasn't supposed to be shown to the public, but a mix up led to it being there for all eyes to behold. On this backdrop were blueprints for several new Transformers never seen before. What they appeared to be were a new toy of Blaster that turned into both a boombox and a base mode, a new Fortress Maximus heavily-retooled from the Titan class Metroplex mold (complete with Cerebros, Spike, and IDW Fort Max-inspired tank treads on his back), little Headmaster figures piloting small accessory vehicles, and a big Astrotrain-looking figure with an Optimus Prime-looking Headmaster for a head. TFW2005 provides many photos of these blueprints.

    Additional rumors given in episode #115 of the TransMissions podcast allude to a Powermaster/Headmaster combo Optimus Prime heavily retooled from Leader class Ultra Magnus, most of the Headmasters might be smaller versions of the characters they form the heads of instead of being separate characters, additional Headmasters might be sold as add-ons like the extra non-partnered Mini-Cons from Armada, and a Soundwave that might NOT be the same mold as Blaster and instead might be his own mold.

    Given the Buzzsaw toy that was revealed at BotCon this year, it's probably safe to assume that it'll be able to interact with the Blaster or Soundwave of this line.

    Speaking of Blaster, the first image of him has shown up on ACToys, showing him in all three modes. The figure is rumored to be either a Voyager or maybe even a Leader.

    Yesterday, the 17th episode of the 2015 Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon aired on Cartoon Network in the U.S. Titled "One of Our Mini-Cons Is Missing", the Bee Team is visited by Jetstorm, one of Drift's Mini-Cons who has come back to Earth due to having left Drift after circumstances that Jetstorm feels ashamed of. Naturally, Drift himself is not far behind in pursuit of his runaway Mini-Con, coming back to Earth just as two Decepticons, Quillfire and Springload, escape from their stasis pods and make a break towards freedom. Can the Bee Team juggle having to both make peace between Drift and his disgraced pupil while also contending with Quillfire and Spingload's excellent adventure? Let's find out.

    Happy Independence Day from Unicron.com! On this very morning, the 16th episode of the 2015 Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon aired on Cartoon Network in the U.S. Though nothing so patriotic happens in it, what does happen is quite dark, like, TF: Prime levels of dark! Titled "Some Body, Any Body", Sideswipe gets in over his head in the pursuit of the latest Decepticon, which lands him in a most unnerving position that renders him both a liability and force to be reckoned with. Can Sideswipe and the Bee Team overcome this predicament and everyone's head on straight? Let's find out.
