    Japan has been busily releasing a TON of Transformers toy news this past month, and we're gonna wrap it all up in one go! We got SEVEN topics to look at pertaining to Million Publishing's Transformers Generations 2014 mail-away exclusives, the Transformers: Legends toyline, the "Optimus Prime featuring Original PlayStation" figure, the Masterpiece toyline, Transformers Cloud, and the Movie Advanced Series.

    We have a LOT of ground to cover, to head through the space bridge to see everything.

    Nothing makes me want to buy a car like believing it's actually am alien robot in disguise! Don't remember any of any TF movie, but it's fun to watch none-the-less!
    A commercial for GAC GS5, a chinese SUV that is sponsoring the Transformers 4 movie. This is the VFX edit as nearly 20% of the VFX were cut from the broadcasted…

    Another year, another round of Chinese New Year Platinum Editions. The CYBERGEEKS Alliance Facebook has provided us with the first official images of the Platinum Edition "Year of the Goat" Optimus Prime and Soundwave figures.

    As has become tradition, "Year of the Goat" Optimus Prime is another big Optimus toy redeco, this time utilizing one of the coolest Optimus molds ever: Generation 2 Laser Optimus Prime from 1995! He sports a deco consisting entirely of translucent plastic, gold plastic, and silver chrome paint (such a lasting combination).

    Likewise, "Year of the Goat" Soundwave is a redeco of Masterpiece MP-13 Soundwave in the same bold choice of a deco as Optimus: Clear plastic and gold plastic. He also comes with all five of the Masterpiece Cassettes that came with the Hasbro release of MP Soundwave: Rumble, Frenzy, Ravage, Laserbeak, and Buzzsaw; all sporting new decos of their own.

    Hasbro.com has uploaded a free PDF of the first issue of IDW's new "Transformers: How to Ride a Dinobot!" comic series. Based on the "How to Ride Your Dinobot" web cartoon, this comic takes the Age of Extinction Autobots and puts them in a lighthearted situation of Optimus teaching them all how to ride their own Dinobot. Each of them is paired with the same Dinobot as they were in the movie, with the addition of Hound being paired with an oversized Slash.

    The Shanghai Licensing Expo 2014 was held not too long ago over in (where else?) Shanghai, China, at which Hasbro was in attendance and held a booth marketing their upcoming product lines. One such line was the 2015 Transformers: Robots in Disguise line, and thanks to the Tekmenoid blog, we have images of a plethora of Transformers goods that were on display. Not only was RID being promotes, but as were products from other companies such as the Ulitmetal Optimus Prime figure and items pertaining to Age of Extinction. Head through the space bridge to see it all.

    Not specifically related to the Transformers, but WONDERFUL news for Hasbro, nonetheless! Hasbro has announced that Disney Consumer Products has entered into a new marketing strategy/partnership with Hasbro that is to come in 2016. Previously, rival toy manufacturer Mattel was the company behind the production of Disney's Frozen and other Princess-related properties, but that role will soon be handed over to Hasbro and can only lead to great things for the company. The addition of the Frozen and Disney Princess properties to Hasbro's inventory will mark their third line of Disney-owned properties, after the successful Marvel and Star Wars lines. What this means for the Transformers lines is not spelled out, but as profitable as the Disney Princess products are, this can only be good news for Hasbro and possibly lead to better products to come.

    User Tober of Ozformers has gotten his hands on the Generations Deluxe class toys of Arcee and Chromia in advance of their release and has posted in hand images of each. Arcee is a brand new mold based heavily on her 1986 Generation 1 cartoon character model, while Chromia is an extensively heavy retool of Prime First Edition Arcee designed after her current IDW G1 comic look.

    By now, this is likely old news, but news is still news. The final #6 and mystery #7 Transformers Subscription Service 2.0 figures have been released to those who ordered them. By process of elimination (a few previous leaks), it's easily to deduce who these two figures are. The Twitter of John DeLuna has posted several in hand images of the figures, which have been mirrored beyond the space bridge. If you would like to see which figures they are, head through the space bridge to see the pics.

    CinemaSins has done it again with the latest installment of their ever-popular "Everything Wrong With..." series. This time, the group takes a look at the fourth Transformers movie in "Everything Wrong With Transformers: Age of Extinction". Split into two parts (as a jab at this movie's extensive running time), the film is looked at with keen (and a little biased) observation that points out both legitimate problems with the movie and some bouts of hyperbole for comedy's sake. Head through the space bridge to see "everything wrong". :P

    Have always been big fans of the character designs from War for/Fall of Cybertron. These pictures released today by third party manufacturer "Planet X" may remind you of FoC Sludge. While disappointed that Hasbro/Takara never produced toys based on these inspired character designs, I'm grateful that someone is, even if it isn't authentic/official.

    The latest iteration of "Transformers" are arriving in stores (TRU in this case) now. What do you think? Will you be picking up a complete set ? I wonder if guys like Eric Siebenaler and Derrick Wyatt ever envisioned that a character they designed like Lockdown would ever be made into an Angry Bird toy!?

    As NY ComicCon comes to a close, thought I'd share some additional pics of the event. Although there weren't as many Transormers related things to see as I'm used to, the (new show) Robots In Disguise and IDW panels made it worth the trip!

    Received the following correspondence from Hasbro PR. Awesome clips, now you can see for yourself! "This afternoon at the Transformers: Robots in Disguise panel at New York Comic Con, Hasbro Studios showed off two exciting new clips from the new animated series, coming to Cartoon Network in the U.S. in 2015. Hasbro Studios guests and voice actors including Will Friedle (Bumblebee), Constance Zimmer (Strongarm), Khary Payton (Grimlock) and Mitchell Whitfield (Fixit) were in attendance to debut the clips for Transformers fans.

    Robots in Disguise panel at New York ComicCon! Introducing the team and tracking down a ship full of Decepticons. This one, with a very lobster-inspired baddie, named "Bisk!" Or is that 'Bisque!' Looks great, sounds even better... - so far they are imagining 3 seasons. - among all the Decepticons there are those that are just happy to be free, some that are trying to get back to Cybertron, and others that "have their own Agenda!" Stay tuned. High Rez videos forthcoming.

    Strongarm: Teach us, like Optimus taught you!
    Bumblebee: I'm NOT Optimus!!!
    - But he is the leader!

    Straight off the news that RiD will air on Cartoon Network, an all new trailer for the all new series has been released. See new characters in motion, hear new voices... check it out and enjoy! Good things ahead!

    It appears the new team will be comprised of Bumblebee: leader, Strongarm: female muscle-truck!, Sideswipe: boundry-pushing Autobot, Fixit who apparently turns into about everything... and Grimlock a jolly-green giant. Not sure how he fits into the whole "Robots in Disguise" theme, but it's good to see a return to some animated Dinobots...

    Woo boy, we have some catching up to do in the world of Transformers new animated series, Robots in Disguise! A press release unveiled yesterday by Hasbro, announced that the show will now air on Cartoon Network! In talking Hasbro representatives yesterday, they seemed really excited as this will likely mean it will be seen by a significantly greater number of fans, considering CN viewership being so much higher than the former Hub Network.

    Internet EXCLUSIVE! Generations Deluxe Grimlock in both modes, from the Robots in Disguise line! Designer talked about color... Thought here wasn't to mimic the film, it was that they wanted to portray friendly, Autobot dinosaur and they thought this color captured the mood the best.

    Generations Deluxe Strongarm -confirmed yes, she is female! Bumblebee and Optimus Prime. Also learned this is the only price point. No Voyagers, leaders or basic. Cyberverse is coming back and larger one-step to be replacing Voyagers for now...

Did 'Screen Junkies' get it right or are they way off base?! Agree or not, it's a pretty hilarious take!

    "We have decided to extend the TFSS 3.0 order period till Monday 5pm CDT to give people who get paid on Friday the final opportunity to get this great set of toys! This way they have the weekend to pull the trigger on the subscription."

    The Transformers Universe MOTA game from Jagex has had new videos for it posted onto its YouTube channel: An Autobot Introduction and a Decepticon Introduction.

    Both videos give us a glimpse of how and when the Autobots and Decepticons arrived on Earth in this game, and possibly the same for the Aligned continuity (meaning this game might serve as a prequel to Transformers: Prime!). Through the space bridge for the videos.

    We first heard rumblings about this before, but now it is official. Discovery Communications has formally announced in a press release that the joint venture television partnership between both it and Hasbro, known as the Hub Network, will officially be coming to an end on October 13, 2014.

    The channel will instead be remade and reworked into a new network called Discovery Family, on which all of Hasbro Studios' current and upcoming programming will still continue to air, but as part of a daytime block running from the mornings to the early afternoons, while regular Discovery programming will air for the remainder of the late afternoon, primetime, and late night timeslots. This should have little affect on the airing of the upcoming Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon, the third season of the Transformers: Rescue Bots cartoon, and other Hasbro programming, aside from all them having to air during the daytime. To see the full details of the press release, head through the space bridge.

    Rovio has posted to their YouTube channel several trailers for the new Angry Birds Transformers mobile game. These trailers depict the characters done up in Transformer bodies living in a bright and colorful fully CGI world while trying to survive the many dangers that pose a threat to them. A few of these are for the characters themselves, while another is of gameplay for the mobile game. To see all the videos of this very fun-looking and exciting game, head through the space bridge.

    TakaraTomy's website has posted the announcement of a new campaign of Transformers: Lost Age store exclusives called the "Legendary Weapons Present Campaign". Based on a scene from the Age of Extinction movie, in which human characters Cade and Shane discover an arsenal of weapons aboard Lockdown's ship, these four items are redecos of weapons that came with figures from the Prime Robots in Disguise and Prime Beast Hunters toyline. The four weapons are intended for use by Optimus Prime, Scorn, Slug, and Strafe. Through the space bridge for the details.

    Both TakaraTomy Mall and e-HOBBY have posted official images of the upcoming fourth wave of Transformers: Cloud figures, TFC-A04 Roadbuster and TFC-D04 Hellwarp.

    Roadbuster is a redeco of Generations Voyager Roadbuster in the color scheme of Super Link Roadbuster, A.K.A. Energon Ironhide.

    Hellwarp is a redeco of Generations Voyager Sky-Byte in the color scheme of Skywarp, as a name-based throwback to Beast Wars II Hellscream being a shark-bodied upgrade of Starscream (as this is a shark-bodied upgrade of Skywarp). Through the space bridge for the pics.
