What sort of mission might she have? To find out, let's roll to the rescue!

    Unicron Head Helmet ---

    Of course, we are particularly biased with our excitement for this! Recently received a leaked image of an upcoming product based on everyone's favorite chaos bringer; that's right, it's Unicron head as a wearable helmet!

    Rumor has it, this may be a TAKARA licensed product for a convention in Japan. We've been informed it will be larger than the other 3p Unicron head's 'floating around out there' (pun intended!) and is said to be produced of stronger materials and be less expensive. Feast your eyes upon its stunning more-animation-accurate design!

    Stay tuned, we will provide more information as it becomes available!

    The 37th episode of the new Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon has aired on Cartoon Network. Titled "Graduation Exercises" (though, some TV listings titled it "Outstanding"), we once again catch up with Optimus's Stealth Team as they investigate an interference at one of Windblade's supply caches. Whilst on this mission, Slipstream and Jetstorm want to prove to Drift that they can work effectively without his help and guidance, but when a Decepticon military general and his vast Mini-Con swarm ambush the team, Slipstream's and Jetstorm's recklessness ends up placing Drift in a dire position. Can the two student Mini-Cons save their master and restore their honor, or will they and the rest of the team be done in by the overwhelming numbers of this new Decepticon threat? To find out, let's rev up and roll out!

    I´ve always liked the concept of a double spy. A shame we couldn´t see him more than a couple times because of the ending of the series in USA. Which other character would you've loved to see in the series that didn´t make it or appear too little? Any Pretender? Master? *TLA

    Ever the busy bees, anime fansubbing group Karyuudo Fansubs has provided us with yet another special treat of Japanese Transformers animation subtitled in English. This time, they have provided us with a fansub of the second Japanese Beast Wars movie, titled "Beast Wars Metals: Convoy's Great Transformation!" Though this "movie" is actually just the Japanese version of one of the season 3 episodes of the American Beast Wars cartoon, it was treated as a movie in Japan as it was only released over there in theaters as part of a special Summer 1999 triple-feature film of animated works based on Takara properties. And while this movie version of the episode did eventually come to VHS in Japan, it did not air on TV over there with the other regular episodes, and nor was it ever released on DVD in Japan. But now, Karyuudo Fansubs has created a special high quality release of the movie using various materials to recreate the movie on a level comparable to DVD quality, complete with all new English subtitles and extra bonuses to top off this ambitious project. Below is a copy of this release's original announcement.

    MAGNABOSS

    If you, like us, are huge fans of both G1 & Beast Wars, and are looking for the evolutionary "missing link" between the two series, then you may enjoy this year's Botcon exclusive Magnaboss sticker set; as much as we did! Simply take existing Combiner Wars Silverbolt, Ironhide and Prowl, add the labels, and combine with other Botcon exclusives: Unit-3 and Tigatron, and you have the new combiner which helps span these generations of Transformers fiction. Their story is told in convention exclusive comic, "Dawn of Predacus."

    Special thanks to TFDb user jasn0_x for adding his comparison photos of the Magnaboss upgrade, side by side with Takara's Unite Warriors figures. You'll also find images I added with additional close-ups and individual shots.

    Today, the long awaited fourth season of Transformers: Rescue Bots made its world premiere on Discovery Family, with its 79th and 80th episodes. Episode 79, titled "New Normal", shifts the setting of the show forward a bit, to place it three years after Rescue Force Sigma-17 first arrived on Earth all the way back in the very first episode. Descriptions of the episode have stated that this episode is the one in which the Bots will finally have to decide whether or not to reveal their true nature to the citizens of Griffin Rock, as an alien attack forces their hand.

    Episode 80, titled "Bridge Building", seems to follow up from the previous episode, dealing with the aftermath of the team's actions as the people of Griffin Rock must choose whether or not they will be allow the Bots to continue to stay on the island, while an incident with a new GroundBridge ends up splitting up the team. What other sorts of surprises await us this season? To find out, let's roll to the rescue!

    The 36th episode of the new Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon has aired on Cartoon Network. Titled "Portals", this episode has Fixit attempt to get the GroundBridge up and running again ever since it went down back in the season 2 premiere. However, something goes horribly wrong as his repairs accidentally force open a portal to a particular other dimension, allowing two of the most dangerous Decepticons of all time to emerge from the portal before the Bee Team, who are all WAY out of their league in their efforts to combat this grave new threat. Meanwhile, Steeljaw (having joined up with the Decepticon army led by Saberhorn and Glowstrike) is offered a new opportunity by his colleagues in his ever-growing bid for power. What does this entail for him? And will Bumblebee and his team be able to overcome their nigh-unbeatable, deadly new foe? To find out, let's rev up and roll out!

    BotCon may have come and gone, both for 2016 and (sadly) for the foreseeable future, but we are not ones to let it go so easily! Though we of Unicron.com have shown off, on our Facebook, much of what the convention had to offer in regards to toy reveals and displays, there was so much more to experience and behold over the whole weekend.

    Below is an extensive coverage of many of the con's panels and events, in form of textual notations and gathered videos from others who were in attendance (many thanks to all parties responsible for filming these videos).

    The 35th episode of the new Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon has aired on Cartoon Network. Titled "Impounded", Grimlock's dino mode has become so much of a hindrance that Bumblebee has decided that Grim can't go on missions out in public anymore. But, as Decepticon activity becomes increasingly prominent, Bumblebee and Strongarm find themselves in a situation that renders the two critically incapacitated in vehicle mode and hauled away to an impound lot by the Crown City police. Grimlock and Fixit are the only Autobots left to deal with the Decepticons running amok in the city, but Grim's dino mode still stands out like a sore thumb. What are they to do? To find out, let's rev up and roll out!

    Amid all of the BotCon 2016 news comes some very sad news from about a week ago. On Sunday, April 3, 2016, Japanese pop artist Kōji Wada passed away at the young age of 42. According to Anime News Network, Wada had contracted cancer in his upper pharynx, which he had fought and beat twice before, first in 2003 and again in 2011. But sadly, the cancer was not to be overcome a third time. In his honor, Wada's agency Solid Vox will hold a "Wada Kōji Owakare no Kai" (Kōji Wada Farewell Event) for his fans in Tokyo later this month, with further details on the event to be given on Wada's official website (http://wadakoji.com/).

    To most of his fans, Kōji Wada was known for performing nearly all of the theme songs and many other songs for the Digimon anime franchise, but to Transformers fans, he is best known for performing "Honō no Overdrive ~Car Robot Cybertron~" ("Blazing Overdrive ~Car Robot Autobots~"), the theme song to the 2000 Japanese anime series Transformers: Car Robots (known better to the English-speaking world as the first Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon from 2001). He also performed "Kimi Iro no Mirai ~Yume~" ("The Future of Your Color ~Dream~"), the c/w song for the single release album of the Car Robots theme song.

    Though his contributions to Transformers were few (which can all be found below), he will be missed. Sayōnara, Wada-sensei. May you rest in peace.

    The Transformers Collectors Club has updated its website's Prose Fiction section with the fourth installment of the Beast Wars: Uprising series of text stories. For those unaware, Beast Wars: Uprising is a whole new take on Beast Wars much like how IDW's current comics are a new take on G1. In this darker universe, the Maximals and Predacons are not beast-based Transformers fighting a war on Earth, but are instead a subservient class of Cybertronians ruled under the corrupt and decrepit Autobots and Decepticons of old, who are now collectively known as "the Builders". The Builders treated the Maximals and Predacons as little more than tools to fight each other in gladiatorial combat for pleasure and personal gain, rather than as individuals. That all changed when a lone Maximal, Lio Convoy, started a rebellion known as the Grand Uprising, in which he rallied other Maximals and Predacons to join his cause of overthrowing their tyrannical Builder overlords. But many remained loyal to the Builders and opposed Lio Convoy's resistance movement, resulting in a conflict of Maximals and Predacons on one side fighting for freedom and change against the Builders and other Maximals and Predacons fighting for ironclad order and dominance.

    This new text story, titled "Micro-Aggressions", is the fourth story in this series and, from the looks of the title page artwork, seems to feature the Autobot Hot Rod, the Maximal Grimlock, and the Predacon Galvatron entering the greater conflict. The story is written by Jim Sorenson and illustrated by Christopher Colgin. It is available for anyone to read freely in PDF form. The first three stories can also be read on the Club's website, each titled "Broken Windshields", "Head Games", and "Burning Bridges".
