With the official reveal of ER Thundercracker and Skywarp, some fans are at a crossroads, do you get the new seekers and keep the Siege seekers making for 2 separate displays? Or do you sell off the Siege seekers that now have Earth modes? Some collectors are fine with multiples of a character especially one with different alt modes and/or from different time periods but there are just as many out there who aim to only collect 1 definitive G1 style version of a character, some collectors aim to keep their collection small, intimate, deliberate etc. So what kind of collector are you? and how will you handle the new Seekers?

We finally get our first real look at Generations Selects Super Megatron that has been teased in silhouette by TakaraTomy for ages. This figures apparently does also have a tank mode (as evidenced by the visible treads and shown in the comic included on his TarakaTomy Mall listing) loosely inspired by his upgraded form "Ultra Megatron" who both went toe to toe against Star Convoy in the Transformers Battlestars Manga, but neither have never made it into toy form until now (soon). What do you make of this EXTENSIVE retool of Titans Return Galvatron? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Toy Updates in 2018, 19, 20 Sections of unicron.com
Spent some of my virus quarantine time yesterday filling in the gaps of our database listings on Transformers Cyberverse, so I decided to put this on in the background - and wow, did I get sucked in like never before!
My first observation is that this show is WAY more enjoyable when viewed on a full sized television as opposed to viewing on a cellphone, tablet or computer screen. Maybe it's just me ("okay, boomer!") but I think that you get a much better appreciation for the artistry of the animation style and overall storyarc when viewed on a bigger screen and in sequence at once.
Next, this series overall much better than fans have given it credit for, yeah, even season 1. Look, I'm not saying "flawless" - I personally don't care for the continuation of Bumblebee talking through the radio and commercials... and yes the themes are geared toward a younger audience, if that's not your thing. But look I understand these creative decisions. Todays kids know Bumblebee from the live action movies, (Including the very well done Bumblebee spotlight film...) and lets face it, Transformers are bought mostly by kids! Oh, and by the way, there are some gritty moments! Have you seen what happens to Blurr in Season 1?! Worst than his fate in Transformers Animated!
Third, the writers of this series know Transformers lore (!!!) - much more than I realized when watching individual episodes weeks/months apart on my cellphone. The episode that essentially changed my view and made me sit up and really pay attention, Season 1, with the first appearance of Maccadam! This show smartly draws on lore from IDW comics, Transformers The Ultimate Guide (2004 book publication) and even some from the Aligned Continuity - Covenant of Primus. They even know Marvel UK - bringing "Rack'N'Ruin" into the mix! ...
Again, I'm not saying it's perfect, but if you're looking for something to binge on Netflix, this series is definitely worth another look! And as I've said, I think this show is a lot more entertaining and fun when viewed on a television, and seen in series. Now, if only they'd get Season 2 available there so I don't have to watch it on YouTube.
For those of you who have collected the toys I invite/remind you that you can upload/add toy photos to the website character pages through our app, TFDb (Transformers Fan Database) app - and the "Take toy photo" feature. Thanks everyone for your contributions!
Contents of #Netflix #Transformers Ultra Magnus Revealed
Hard to say how much the toy contents spoil. We’e seen the teaser trailer with presumably Ultra Magnus defiantly walking into a gathering of Decepticons wearing a mysterious cloak. I’ve added a few spoiler images so as those who don’t want to see the contents don’t have to. Those that do, scroll through! Images posted by online retailer Robotkingdom.
Seems the set includes Magnus with cloak and a deco similar to the other figures (Sideswipe, Scrapface, Hound... and Rung in what looks like glowing Energon plastics. Being we’re all staying home, hopefully safe and healthy it sure would be a great time to binge watch the new series. C’mon Netflix, throw us a bone and release this series now!!
