    The forthcoming Asia Premium, Optimus Prime Ultimate Edition features the consensus-best-mold of movie-verse Optimus Prime, with DoTM upgraded abs, the most highly detailed paint aps I've ever seen (on any Transformers toy), and every accessory that's ever come with the many versions of this spectacular toy, plus new accessories never seen before, like the Shockwave-gut-destroying-'brass'-knuckles... Like seeing Optimus Prime on-screen, there's so much to take in, it's a little overwhelming!

    The 69th episode of Transformers: Rescue Bots has aired on Discovery Family. Though titled "The Last of Morocco", this is not the season finale (as there are still nine episodes left of the season). Yet, this could be the end of the Rescue Bots' long-lasting conflict with Dr. Thaddeus Morocco that has been ever-ongoing since early in the first season. In this one, an old friend of Morocco's, none other than the classic science fiction author Jules Verne, travels through time into the present in search of Morocco (Morocco has been alive since the 19th Century). What is Mr. Verne's intention of finding Morocco and what role does the Rescue Team play in this? Let's find out.

    BotCon.com has updated with official images of the recently revealed BotCon 2015 "Cybertron's Most Wanted" exclusive Shattered Glass Autobot Stepper. Dubbed "The Loose Cannon" of the set, Stepper is a redeco of Reveal the Shield Special Ops Jazz in a Halloween-based deco consisting primarily of reddish orange with the inclusion of black, white, and gold. He also comes with his Targetmaster partner Nebulon, a redeco of Universe Cyclonus's Targetmaster figure Nightstick. Stepper is meant to be the Shattered Glass counterpart of the 1987 Japanese Autobot Targetmaster Stepper, who was later given the Hasbro name of Ricochet. And although there has already been a Shattered Glass Ricochet toy, made back in 2008 from the Cybertron Crosswise mold, this new Stepper toy is meant to be a brand new character separate from SG Ricochet.

    YOUR RESPONSE NEEDED! Earlier this week I received an email from Hasbro, asking us to poll our site visitors for votes for nominees for this year's Transformers Hall of Fame. Full rules are listed below, but this year it's a little different than year's past. Hasbro wants to know the top three nominees we recieve in each of three different categories:

    • FAVORITE TRANSFORMERS CHARACTER (Fictional Robot Character)
    • BEST COMBINER ROBOT (Fictional Robot Character)

    This year, we'll try to simplify the process. One vote, in each category per person. -Make sure you don't vote for someone who's already been voted in (see below for complete listing.) Votes will be counted either on this news thread in our Unicron.com forums, OR you can vote on our Facebook news feed, if you prefer the social media route. But please don't delay, we've only got until Monday to turn our results in. - Sorry I didn't get this posted sooner. Death in the family has had me off the grid for the last several days...

    Complete contest rules listed in our forum thread below....

    In another group there was a game of putting closeups of a few of your tfs. I posted these ones. There´s a pic of one tf for each year from 1984 to 2014. I haven´t posted any for 2015 because the year is just beginning. In some cases they mean a lot to me and in other cases is just that I had them around and I couldn´t be bothered to look for other ones -for that year- in my vast collection.

    Do you want to know more about Tfs? Just look at our huge database at www.unicron.com!!! *TLA
    En otra página estaban subiendo algunas fotos de la colecciones de cada uno con close ups de tfs significativos. Para hacerlo más divertido acá puse 1 Tf por cada uno de los años del 84 al 2014. Algunos son significativos y otros los puse porque me dio pereza buscar entre mi armada uno más bacán.

    No he puesto ninguno del 2015 porque el año recién comienza y espero que salga algo más interesante, je.

    Japanese retailer e-HOBBY has posted the first official images of the new Unite Warriors Grand Scourge exclusive figure. A redeco of Generations Combiner Wars Optimus Prime (and the first release of the Optimus version of the mold in Japan), this figure sports an all new deco based heavily on Grand Scourge from Transformers: Super Link (Japanese version of Transformers: Energon), who was a "Nemesis Prime"-based redeco of the Pla-Kit Collection Grand Convoy Super Mode model kit (Grand Convoy being Energon Optimus Prime).

    Included with this figure are the two guns from the normal Optimus version (named here as "Scourge Guns") and a red redeco of either the giant butcher's cleaver that came with Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters Beast Hunter Optimus Prime, or the slightly less giant but still very big butcher's cleaver that came with Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters Beast Tracker Optimus Prime. The red one seen here has been given the name "Matrix Breaker".

    According to Grand Scourge's bio, he is able to transcend time and space, travelling between dimensions, making him likely to be the very same person as the original Grand Scourge whose original pack-in story left his fate ambiguous.

    Presently, G.I. Joe fans are enjoying a weekend at the JoeCon 2015 convention, at which came a revelation of particular interest to Transformers fans. Yesterday, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club Roundtable Panel featured the reveal of a new G.I. Joe/Transformers Crossover exclusive set: Old Snake w/ two Stealth B.A.T.s (Battle Android Troopers).

    Old Snake is none other than Cobra Commander himself from the Transformers: Generation 1 season 3 cartoon episode "Only Human", while the Stealth B.A.Ts. are redeco of Transformers Prime: Robots in Disguise Deluxe class Soundwave. The set will likely be available from the Club Stores of both Collectors Clubs, and will be the second Joe/TF crossover set to come from Fun Publication, following the previously-announced Marissa Faireborn w/ Afterbreaker set.

    Seibertron.com was in attendance of the announcement and was lent a sample of the set by Pete Sinclair to provide images of the set. While only one B.A.T. is pictured, the final set will include two.

    The 68th episode of Transformers: Rescue Bots has aired on Discovery Family. Titled "Turning the Tide", the Bots get a visit from a new Autobot sent over by Optimus Prime to train them. It is not anyone we have met before, as it is a brand new character in the form of High Tide. He is an old friend of Optimus's and has come to train the Bots for ocean rescues. What sort of character is High Tide and what kind of training will he be putting our heroes through? Let's find out.

    The fourth episode of the new 2015 Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon has aired on Cartoon Network in the U.S. In this one, titled "More Than Meets the Eye", we get some focus on two of the Autobots' younger allies: Russell and Fixit. Being new to the area (having come to live with his dad back in episode 1), Russell has yet to make any human friends, and is encouraged by the others to try and befriend the local neighborhood kids. Meanwhile, Fixit gets his moment in the battlefield when a new mission to stop the latest Decepticon convict requires his technical expertise, but he finds himself in for much more than he was expecting. Can both Russell and Fixit overcome their personal issues to help them each get through their tough situations? Let's find out.

    From one who has been staring the looks off of Combiner Wars Leader Class Megatron imaging how a little bit of 3rd party accessory love could really polish out his minor flaws. I am thrilled that DX9 TOYS has unveiled their plans to take a crack at it! Their upcoming product AL-01 will Include: handsX2 shoulder cannonX1 feetX2 arm cannon muzzleX1 head-to-feet height:24.5CM. We would have taken some things in a bit of a different direction, be we're glad that someone is providing some needed accessories for this almost perfect toy. What do YOU think of their Leader-class Megatron add-ons?

    "I wish to stay with the boy!"

    Longtime visitors of our site may remember the interview we helped to facilitate between my (then) favorite sports talk radio station KFAN in Minneapolis and veteran actor Mark Ryan. (See link to review!) This was back in 2009, a week or so before the premiere of Revenge of the Fallen. Mark first became known to Transformers fans as the one-line voice of Bumblebee in the first Transformers film. He went on to be the robot stand-in on all live action films and provide the voice of Jetfire in RotF and Lockdown in TF4:AoE.

    We now learn of Mark's plans to publish his autobiography, "Hold Fast" which is said to tell tales of his adventures on the set of all four Transformers films and more. Due for release later this month, you can visit the link to learn more

    Fun Publications has returned to YouTube once again to reveal the second figure in the BotCon 2015 "Cybertron's Most Wanted" boxed set, continuing in their Easter egg style reveals. Reveal Number 2 is Battletrap the Muscle, a remold of Generations Thrilling 30 Voyager class Springer with an all new headsculpt! We can only hope that there will also be a Flywheels made from the Blitzwing/Doubledealer mold to go with this figure. Additionally, from what info we are presented from his bio, this version of Battletrap seems to originally hail from (at least, some version of) the Dreamwave G1 continuity. Official images are still forthcoming, but here is the video reveal.

    Happy Easter, everybody! On this fine day, we present to you all some wonderful news to come from anime fansubbing group Karyuudo Fansubs (who had previously fansubbed Car Robots, Zone, and Legends of the Microns). They have announced that the next Japanese Transformers cartoon to be subtitled in English from them will be none other than what is considered a Holy Grail among the fandom, Beast Wars II: Super Lifeform Transformers!

    Broadcast on Japanese television from 1998 to 1999, Beast Wars Second was the first Japanese-original Beast Era cartoon, and the first Japanese-original Transformers cartoon since 1989's Transformers: Victory series and 1990's Transformers: Zone home video single episode. Released at a time when Japan was wanting more Beast Wars after the first season, but seasons 2 and 3 were not ready yet, Beast Wars Second was produced by Ashi Production (known nowadays as Production Reed) as a spin-off series starring all new characters in an all new setting.

    Beast Wars Second tells the story of the Cybertrons/Maximals led by Lio Convoy vs. the Destrons/Predacons led by Galvatron, who fought each other over a mysterious new energy called Angolmois on the post-apocalyptic planet Gaea in the far distant future. And soon, Karyuudo Fansubs will be releasing a subtitled-in-English version for all fans in the Western World to finally see. After waiting for 17 long years, this show will at last no longer be the enigma it has always been. Through the space bridge for the announcement.

    After two weeks of rerunning the first two episodes, Cartoon Network (in the U.S.) has finally aired the third episode of the new 2015 Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon. This episode acts as a sort of spiritual third part to the two-part pilot episode, as it establishes the show's main premise of hunting escaped Decepticon criminals, and introduces the first main villain of the show, Steeljaw, who has a very unique agenda among most Decepticon leaders.

    The team is divided in this episode in more ways than one, as they split up into groups of two to go after two different Decepticon signatures. Bumblebee and Grimlock find themselves up against a salty sea dog of a Decepticon while Sideswipe and Strongarm are constantly at odds with each other in their own attempts to apprehend another Con. Can both groups find a way to overcome these difficulties and stop each Decepticon? Though the space bridge for the episode and discuss.

    BotCon has Tweeted a YouTube video unveiling the first toy exclusive for the BotCon 2015 "Cybertron's Most Wanted" boxed set.

The method through which the toys are to be revealed is a group of five Easter eggs containing each toy, with Packrat being the first one "hatched".

    The 67th episode of Transformers: Rescue Bots has aired on Discovery Family. In this one, titled "Pirates Ahoy", the rescue team is put on suspension until further notice after evidence arises that the Burns family members are descended from pirate marauders and looters. Griffin Rock's most trusted team of first responders are the sons and daughters of a lawless, criminal ancestry. Can this be true? And can they find a way to clear their names before the danger-prone Griffin Rock undoubtedly needs saving from itself once more? Head through the space bridge for the episode.

    The legend exists! TakaraTomy Mall has announced a new exclusive Materpiece figure in the form of Masterpiece MP-18B Bluestreak. Recall the original MP-18 was just called "Streak", which was the Japanese name of G1 Bluestreak. This new MP-18B uses the American name because it is actually blue! Yes, Blue Bluestreak! As in, the Diaclone deco that was used for the G1 Bluestreak box art! The toy deco that has only ever been the stuff of legend in the Transformers brand (as far as the G1 Bluestreak toy itself was concerned) is finaly being made 100% real as a Masterpiece figure!

    What's more is that this is no simple redeco, but rather a hybrid retooling using parts from both Masterpiece Prowl (the head and waist) and Masterpiece Streak (the lightbar-less car roof), as well as the Amazon Japan missile launchers, for maximum box art accuracy. MP-18B Bluestreak will be a TakaraTomy Mall exclusive limited to 2000 pieces, so preorders on other sites are first come first serve. Head through the space bridge for the pics.

    It's a BotCon miracle! BotCon.com has updated with the announcement of the first guest for the 2015: The legendary Frank Welker!!!

Transformers fans know Mr. Welker best as th voices of G1 Megatron, G1 Galvatron, G1 Soundwave, G1 Wheelie, Prime Megatron, AOE Galvatron, and a whole host of other voices. Outside of Transformers, Mr. Welker has voiced an uncountable amount roles that go back as far as a few decades, and the man continues to lend his voice to the world of animation to this day.

    Beyond the space bridge is the press release announcement.

    The 66th episode of Transformers: Rescue Bots has aired on Discovery Family. Before going into the episode, however, it should be pointed out that this episode is a milestone. As of this episode, the Transformers: Rescue Bots cartoon has officially overtaken Transformers: Prime as being the second-longest Transformers cartoon of all time, as Prime only had 65 episodes, while Rescue Bots is heading on its way up to a grand total of 78!

    Anyway, this episode is called "Time After Time", and puts Cody in a situation that pays homage to the 1993 Bill Murray film "Groundhog Day", in which Cody is caught in a seemingly unyielding time loop that forces him to relive the same morning over and over again, all due to a recently renovated clock tower. What is the true nature of this clock tower and can Cody find a way to free himself from this anomaly in the time-space continuum? Head through the space bridge for the episode.
