    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.

    Seemingly big news in the world of the Transformers movie franchise...

    Imagine how big and how cool Transformers could be, if the films were actually good!? This seems a pretty exciting development; until you read enough to see about Bay's continued high level of involvement. ... Maybe he could achieve greatness if he would let talented writers write future films and he stick to the script?!

    What do you think? There's no arguing his success! Michael Bay made the most profitable film in the world in 2014. Should he stay or should he go???

    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.

    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.

    Sorry for those who have been anticipating R12 Cynicus, there is an unexpected delay caused by our packaging supplier. The comic/manual booklet came in a larger size therefore we will need to get that remade. Thankfully it will be just 8 days.

    Longtime friend of us Unicron.com admin and Japanese Transformers aficianado, "Hydra" has provided the backstory to the controversial TAKARA Masterpiece Exhaust figure. Courtesy of allspark, we now know...

    "So, his character is pretty hilarious. He's an employee of "Marlboor Dynamic," a massive interplanetary corporation that steals secrets from alien cultures around the galaxy. His power, given to him by the research department of the company, allows him to "Quantize": convert his body into living smoke. His function is industrial espionage, and he gathers new secrets and technology for Marlboor. He acts like a suave, debonair spy, but the stress of his job is actually getting to him, causing a chain cy-garette smoking habit that the medical officer has warned is detrimental to his health."

    In surprising move, the Transformers Collectors Club has posted a second brand new Beast Wars: Uprising prose story so quickly after the previous one! And like the last one, it too is FREE for anyone to read, with no membership required.

    Titled "Head Games" and written by David Bishop & Jim Sorenson, this story gives focus to a lower tier Beast Wars character who's never been in the spotlight before: The Predacon Fuzor Buzzclaw! However, as this is the Beast Wars: Uprising universe, Buzzclaw would be in a Cybertronian body instead of his Fuzor toy body, but nevertheless, he is Buzzclaw. But what's more is that this prose work also continues the story of Lio Convoy in his mission to bring justice and freedom to the Maximals and Predacons who are oppressed by the antiquated and domineering Builders (Autobots and Decepticons of old). What challenges does Lio Convoy face and what role does Buzzclaw play in this story? Read the story here to find out.

    In a move unlike any other series before it, the new 2015 Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon has hit the airwaves of Japan only a single day after its premiere on American television. Past Transformers cartoons that were dubbed into Japanese usually took much longer before they got to air in Japan, but with this series (renamed "Transformers: Adventure" in Japan), it looks like it'll be airing in both countries at roughly the same time!

    And in a move rather typical of Japanese-dubbed Transformers cartoons, the Japanese version has been given its own unique opening and ending sequences. The new opening is "Save the Future!!" by Mitsuhiru Oikawa, and contains a mixture of both existing footage from the cartoon and all new original footage created especially for Japan. And the new ending is "Try☆Transformers: Adventure↑↑↑", which is sung by the main voice cast of the Japanese dub, and is made up of 100% new Japanese-original footage of the Autobots dancing. Yep.

    Both the opening and ending (along with a toy commercial or two in between) have been uploaded to YouTube by Tinyironfist. Head through the space bridge to see the video and tell us what you think of the Adventure opening and ending.

    Tonight, the 65th episode of Transformers: Rescue Bots aired on Discovery Family. Titled "Thieves Like Us", this episode has the Bots pitted against miniature souvenir replicas of themselves that carry out a spree of thievery across town. Though this threat may seem small at first glance, time and again have we seen that things are never what they seem on Griffin Rock. Is there a greater agenda behind these thefts, who is behind them, and why? To find out, let's head through the space bridge for the episode.

    Tonight, the first two episodes of the new 2015 Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon made their United States premiere on Cartoon Network, with a special primetime airing of 6:00pm EST to boot! Those who have been waiting for the U.S. premiere date can at last enjoy this brand new series of action, comedy, and above all, FUN.

    The first two episodes are titled "Pilot (Part 1)" and "Pilot (Part 2)", respectively, and take place an indeterminate amount of years after Transformers: Prime, with Cybertronian police lieutenant Bumblebee finding himself swept up in a new mission to planet Earth, joined by a new team consisting of a by-the-book rookie cop, a juvenile delinquent, a stuttering Mini-Con, and a Dinobot ex-convict. With such a wildly diverse team under his wing, can Bumblebee hold this hectic team together and be the leader it needs them to be? Let's head through the space bridge and find out.

While labeled as a "Webisode", it is more of a preview video showcasing the Mini-Con Deployer gimmick of Drift and Fracture, as they each deploy their Mini-Cons to attack one another a la G1 Soundwave and G1 Blaster (minus them coming out of their chests, though). Drift's Mini-Cons are Jetstorm and Slipstream, while Fracture's Mini-Cons are Airazor and Divebomb. Through the space bridge for the video.

    Today, the 63rd episode of Transformers: Rescue Bots aired on Discovery Family. Previously, this episode had had an early official release made available ahead of time by Amazon Instant Video, but now the episode has made its official televised premiere.

    In this one, titled "Did You See What I Thaw?", we get a plot based around a premise that is no stranger to children's cartoons, particularly those of Cartoon Network in the early 2000s. The team discovers a cavemen frozen in ice, completely preserved. But after it ultimately gets thawed out, the caveman is completely out of place in the modern society of the 21st century, leaving it up to the Bots to help it adjust to its new surroundings. On paper, this sounds like a potentially humorous episode, but as it's a story that has been told before in other media, can this version live up to its predecessors? Let's go through the space bridge to see.
