Known as the greatest swordsman in the galaxy and regarded by many to be the best Autobot Supreme Commander since Optimus Prime himself, behold Star Saber! If you are not familiar with this character, I suggest watching Transformers: Victory which is part of the Japanese Trilogy of G1 cartoons. The new War For Cybertron Trilogy is the perfect line to debut a new Star Saber figure and the new Commander Class is the perfect fit for a massive character such as Star Saber who is known to be much larger than Ultra Magnus.
Would you like Hasbro to create a TRANSFORMERS WFC Trilogy Commander Class Star Saber figure?
With the upcoming and highly anticipated Wave 3 Siege series joining to the transformers trading card game in a few days, I thought I should prepare by creating a deck, featuring not only my favorite character, but also this new series! Some cards that I would definitely have included were it not for the 40 card (and 10 sideboard cards) limit, are the following: Plasma Burst (extra damage is quite good in a deck like this), Quartermaster (the ability works very well with Field Communicator), Pep Talk (more cards are great for getting combos set up), and Vaporize. Maybe some of those cards will be added in the future, and this deck is still in the early stages of development, but without further ado, here is the deck list (the pictures below are all the included cards from wave 3)!
Major Shockwave applied scientist
Decepticon Shockwave Cybertron commander
3 Battlefield Report
3 Disruptive Entrance
3 Field Communicator
3 Force Field
3 Frag Toss
2 Handheld Blaster
3 LV Gamma-Disrupter Launcher
3 Multi-Mission Gear
3 Security Checkpoint
3 System Reboot
3 Unconventional Flying Object
3 Heavy Handed
2 Sturdy Armor
3 Squish Them Like Bugs
#Transformers Galaxies: New Ongoing Comic Series Announcement
“Beginning in September, IDW Publishing proudly builds upon the success of 2019’s bold new era of Transformers comic books with its first spin-off series: Transformers: Galaxies! Featuring story arcs that delve deeper into the origins, motivations, and world-shattering machinations of the extended Transformers cast, Galaxies launches with a story arc dedicated to the fan-favorite crew, the Constructicons!
Written by Vox Media co-founder and lifelong Transformers devotee Tyler Bleszinski, with luscious artwork by longtime Transformers artist, Livio Ramondelli, Transformers:Galaxies #1 uncovers the hidden secrets of Cybertron’s vast beauty and extraordinary cityscapes. Long ago, after the War Against the Threefold Spark ended, the Constructicons emerged to help rebuild the decimated planet in grand fashion. But what happened to them in the years since? Why had they been erased from Cybertron’s history… and what have they been planning for their devastating return?
“I’ve dreamed of the day that I could somehow be involved in the Transformers universe,” says Bleszinski. “Humanizing the Constructicons in a refreshed origin story with Livio Ramondelli – one of the most talented Transformers artists ever – will be one of the highlights of my life and will give me the opportunity to share my passion for these incredible creations with my kids’ generation. This is truly a dream come true.”
“Transformers: Galaxies delves into what’s happening away from Cybertron,” says editor David Mariotte. “Tyler and Livio are working on a story about broken promises and lost futures — about those who fall by the wayside to maintain a utopia.”
Official Stock images have just been released by Hasbro for the upcoming Omega Supreme figure. These new images give us a great look at the upcoming Guardian robot in all his glory. The box art is absolutely amazing, very well done indeed. The figure itself is also very impressive, I believe this to be the very BEST Omega Supreme figure that we have been given thus far, there was a time when many thought the year of the snake Omega Supreme was the best we could hope for. Are you excited for WFC-SIEGE Omega Supreme? I know I am. You should be able to preorder the figure at all major toy retailers although with an item such as this, I would not be surprised to find it pre sold out or on back order.
Tentative release is slated for August 2019 although some may receive him sooner
My personal challenge, to organize the 60 new #Transformers characters spread out (unevenly!) among twenty-four Series 2 Blind Packs, six new 5-packs and eight 8-packs! Whew! It’s a lot to organize. While I don’t have photo galleries of every toy (yet!), we do have an organizational structure and accurate descriptions of which toys come with which set, so you can now use it as a checklist to cross-reference to find the #Botbots you’re missing!
Archives and entries for all the known Botbots can be found in the 2019 Transformers Section of unicron.com

#Transformers/#Ghostbusters Crossover Pt 2 Announced
Just when you thought there’s no way to get you to buy another version of MP-10, along comes this announcement, San Diego Comic Con Crossover Optimus Prime sporting a beautiful Ghostbusters deco and all kinds of accessories that will look great next to Ecto-1 Ghostbusters-mobile! The package is designed to look like a beautiful proton-pack and accompanying comic series is set to debut later this summer as well! Just don’t cross the streams if you and your friend each get one! Bad idea...
"The set includes a 9.5-inch-tall Optimus Prime, who of course transforms into his iconic semi truck. Only in this version, dubbed the Ecto-35, he’s sporting the Ghostbusters logo and motto on the side, with a splash of green slime for good measure. The trailer converts into a ghost-busting base when Optimus is in his robot form, and comes complete with maintenance supplies and a ghost trap. You can even wear the packaging itself like a proton pack, if you need help with some last-minute cosplay."

#BotbotsChallenge! Series 1 Listings Complete in TFDb
61 toys, randomly distributed in 40 packages ranging from blind packs to 5 & 8-packs w/ dozens of duplicate and triplicates... Each has been carefully cataloged and organized, so you can readily see what toys come with which set, including blind packs.
It's no small task, and taken me awhile, but series 1 is finally complete and I can move on to Series 2 - which is just starting to reach stores now. I'd better hurry, series 3 is already set to release this fall. Along with a number of other updates in the 2019 #Transformers Section, you'll find every toy photos of each toy and links to others and more.
Special thanks to Hasbro for the #FreeSamples and info.

No one saw this coming! Revealed earlier today at Tokyo Toy Show, Takara pulled one out of left field, a Masterpiece toy based on the Maximal Leader, from Beast Wars II in Japan! Following the current trend, you’ll notice the alt mode is an accurate reflection of his appearances in the cel-animated cartoon series lion. Who wants in on this beauty?!

What do you get when you combine 3 Deluxe Refraktor figures? Usually a really cool camera, although in this case, I like to think of it as a huge Cybertronain cannon of some kind but that's not all you get. You can combine the individual Spaceship modes into one combined Super Spaceship! A very cool fan mode. Refraktor just got that much cooler.
Greetings fellow Transformers fans, I come to you with a nifty little "discovery" if you will, by yours truly. Titans Return Titan Class Trypticon has a space behind its head that can accommodate WFC-SIEGE Deluxe Class Brunt. This is not in the instructions and it is not official nor intended by any means, merely a happy coincidence....or is it?
Not to be confused with the other G1 inspired version of the character coming later this year in #WarForCybertron #Siege, the Masterpiece is a more cartoon accurate version of the original Masterpiece. He was also unveiled earlier today at the Takara display at Tokyo Toy Show.
What does everyone think of the new “cartoon themed” versions of the G1 Masterpiece line?
