Forged To Fight News - Ramjet Joins the Battle as Playable /Winnable Character Sept 21!
Check out complete list of details in the Bot intel report here:
"One of Starscream’s most unpredictable Seekers, Ramjet takes hardheadedness to new extremes by smashing into any foes, and sometimes friends, that cross his flight path...
Momentum: Ramjet builds momentum after ramming opponents.
Ramjet has a 50% chance to gain a permanent Special Bonus Buff that increases Special Attack Damage by 2~10% each. The chance to gain the Buff increases by 3% for each Special Bonus Buff already on him. [Max 10 Buffs]
Optimus Prime (GS) will attempt to use his Heavy Attack to Roll Out, but Ramjet will always win when it comes to vehicle-on-vehicle collision..."
@LAILAStudios Tweets photo of Transformers Universe Bumblebee film Director, Travis Knight standing beside a beautiful red muscle car and ---- is that a Decepticon symbol on the hood?!
I find it interesting how The Last Knight borrowed many elements from the recent cartoon series, "Transformers Prime" (living Earth = Unicron, dragons in Earth's past, Movieverse Hound is TFPrime Bulkhead etc, etc...) and here we have a car which looks quite similar to Cliffjumper of that same series! Hmmmmmmm.....

Orion Pax Combines with Trailer to Become G1, Masterpiece styled, Leader Class Optimus Prime in Power of the Primes
Another late-in-show change to the Transformers display at HASCON, Design Director John Warden took the Deluxe scaled Orion Pax and combined it to show off the combined form robot. Previously, the toy could only be seen in this mode inside its packaging through optically distorting window. We managed to take a few photos before the reflective plexiglass display case front was screwed back into place.
This image and many more of the upcoming Power of the Primes toy have been uploaded to the 2018 Transformers Section of unicron.com

A couple of weeks ago we wrote a post about how one of our favorite brick and mortar retailers, Toys R Us, was looking into various options regarding how to deal with their tremendous debt load. As of yesterday, Toys R Us officially began the process of filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. If you're interested in learning more about what the road ahead looks like for Toys R Us and the legal/financial implications of this decision, check out the bloomberg.com link below. In short, this does not mean the end of Toys R Us, but it does mean that a MAJOR restructuring is in its future which will most certainly entail the closing of main retail locations. What do make of this news as fellow Transformers fans and toy collectors?
We had a fun surprise waiting for us at the Transformers Power of the Primes display of near the end of #HASCON. Design Director John Warden took out the two jet mode toys on display and combined them. The result is a very G1 accurate combined mode jet, just like the original.
The convention may be over, but I still have photos to share. Check out the latest additions in the 2018 Transformers Section of unicron.com

Longtime friend and contributor to the Transformers fandom, Jim Sorenson, has come upon some very cool G1 rarities. He recently held a silent/private auction for these pieces from the original series on his Facebook page. We thought it's still worth sharing these amazing and beautiful photos, even though the auction is over as these pieces have already sold.
He updates the post by saying
"...There may be some more interesting material forthcoming so watch this space."
So stay tuned!
