    Unpublished "Spotlight Octane"

    @NickRoche, artist and co-author of "Last Stand of the Wreckers," and more recent "Sins of the Wreckers" tweets cover and concept art for an idea he and MTMTE author, James Roberts pitched to IDW in 2007 for an Spotlight Octane comic. Alas, the project was not seen through to completion.

    "In 2007, @jroberts332 and I attempted to pitch Spotlight: Octane. Here's the cover and character design."

    Michael Bay shares video from Cuba set of TF5 TLK, along with the line, "There's a robot in there!"

    Think he's referring to the blue cycle or a bot hiding behind that wall?

    Shia LaBeouf to return in TF5 TLK?

    Transformers The Last Knight official Twitter feed recently posted a very cryptic video message along with the line, "Something wicked this way comes." Speculation is that "wicked" may be referring to the "Wickedy" mispronunciation of Witwicky by John Tuttirro's Seymour Simmons character in the first Transformers film...

    According to various sites such as movieweb, the morse code message heard in the video translates to:
    "E I'm coming for you May 31"
    Astute fans may recall that this is something Optimus Prime shouts as he blasts off to kill Shockwave's worm/tunneling monster thing and save Sam In Dark of the Moon.

    What could it all mean, and does anyone care??? Stay tuned! Seems as though we are going to find out in a few days!

    The 85th episode of Transformers: Rescue Bots has aired on Discovery Family. Titled "Ghost in the Machine" (no relation to the G1 cartoon episode of the same name), as Griffin Rock is in the midst of celebrating its local holiday of "Earlyween", a few familiar faces make their unexpected return to town: Our favorite spy-bot Quickshadow, and the ever-persistent criminal duo of hacker/thief twins Evan and Myles. The twin crooks aim to carjack Quickshadow and end up discovering the Bots' secret alien nature. With Quickshadow in constant danger and the existence of Cybertronians on Earth now threatened to be revealed to the world, what can the team do? To find out, let's roll to the rescue!

    TakaraTomy has officially announced a third use of the Masterpiece MP-25 Tracks mold as MP-25L Loudpedal! This Tokyo Toy Show 2016 exclusive is colored in homage to the rare Finland-exclusive Diaclone Black Corvette Stingray figure, complete with a new toy-accurate headsculpt. Like his fellow Diaclone homage MP Exhaust, he is a new Decepticon character. The name "Loudpedal", as Takara explains, comes from the name of one the pedals found on a piano, and to go along with this, Loudpedal has been given the function of 超音工兵 (Chō-on kōhei, "Ultrasonic Engineer"), which Takara has translated into English as "Sonic Sapper".

    The figure includes all of the accessories that came with the original Tracks version, but with Tracks's smaller gun replaced with the larger toy-accurate gun that came with MP Road Rage. The little figure of Raoul is colored to resemble his appearance in the G1 cartoon episode "Auto-Bop", in which his clothes (and even his skin!) were colored differently from his appearance in the episode "Make Tracks". The little Broadcast (Blaster) boombox accessory is also redecoed in Micro Change MC-21 Radi-Casse Robo colors, sporting a light blue, dark blue, gray, and black deco.

    What's especially funny about this figure and the timing of its announcement is that, just a few days ago, the Transformers Collectors Club released its latest (as of this tying) prose story, "The Toxic Transformer", which featured a new Decepticon character named Vivisector who is also a homage to the Diaclone Black Tracks toy, right down to the same mouthplated light blue face. It is up to you if you wish to consider Loudpedal and Vivisector to be completely separate characters, or just different versions of the same character with "Loudpedal" being the Japanese name and "Vivisector" being the English name.

    Yesterday, the 84th episode of Transformers: Rescue Bots aired on Discovery Family. Titled "Vanishing Returns", a group of investors seek to develop a new vacation resort on Griffin Rock, which would not only require the demolishing of several locations on the island, but would also endanger the Bots' identities that the island's citizens swore to protect. Meanwhile, a series of explosions, floods, fires, and other disasters let loose all over the island more frequently than ever. Plus, Cody is turned invisible after a slip-up at Doc's lab brings him in contact with a piece of cloaking tech left over from the Velgrox alien invasion. Unbeknownst to everyone, however, is a greater plot afoot all linked to the investors, the disasters, and the Velgrox tech. Is there some mastermind at work pulling the strings behind the scenes? To find out, let's roll to the rescue!

    The Transformers Collectors Club has updated its Prose Fiction section with a third text story for the Transformers Figure Subscription Service 5.0. Titled "The Toxic Transformer" and set in the "Of Masters and Mayhem" universe, this story gives stardom to none other than Toxitron, and is Part 3 of a four-part series of stories, with Part 1 being the previous Counterpunch story and Part 2 being the previous Fractyl story, with this part adding a third recruit to Impactor's new team of Wreckers. Written by Luke Thompson, with pencils by Dan Khanna, inks by Jake Isenberg, and colors by Thomas Deer and Jesse Wittenrich, with Pete Sinclair as managing editor.

    The Transformers Collectors Club has updated its site's Prose Fiction section with a second text story for the Transformers Subscription Service 5.0. Titled "Life Finds a Way", this story, like the first, takes place in the world of the 2016 magazine comic storyline "Of Masters and Mayhem", and stars a new version of the Beast Era Predacon scientist Fractyl (note that this story being in a different continuity makes it have nothing to do with the Beast Wars cartoon or its related fiction), as he ends up marooned on a strange planet and comes across a rather bizarre group of dinosaur-esque Transformers called the Raptoricons. Written and illustrated by Matt Frank, with colors by Goncalo Lopez and color assists by Paul Hanley.

    This morning, the 39th episode of the new Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon aired on Cartoon Network in the U.S. Titled "Decepticon Island (Part 2)", we have come to Part 2 of the Season 2 finale. Last time, Bumblebee's team of Autobots had reunited with Optimus Prime's Stealth Team and, along with the newly-arrived Ratchet, decided to storm Decepticon Island and take it down once and for all. Meanwhile, Steeljaw got his claws on a couple of Decepticon Hunters and made his power play against Saberhorn and Glowstrike, seizing control of their Decepticon army. And now, with the Bee Team surrounded by Decepticons on all sides at the very heart of the island's stronghold, and with Bumblebee and Optimus in the midst of a leadership quarrel, who will survive the end of all of this? To find out, let's rev up and roll out!

    The Transformers Collectors Club has once again brought us a brand new story for their site's Prose Fiction section. But this time, it is set in the universe of the Club's current magazine storyline for this year of 2016, "Of Masters and Mayhem". Titled "The Truth We Make", it tells the story of Punch/Counterpunch that gives a first-person perspective to the guy's infamous identity crisis that originated in his Dreamwave MTMTE profile. Such a sneaky and twisted story, written by Justin Severson, with illustrations by Paul Vroman and colors by Jesse Wittenrich.

    TakaraTomy designer Hisashi Yuki, TFYuki, has Tweeted a teaser silhouette for the next combiner in the Unite Warriors toyline to come after Computicon (Computron), and it appears to be Japan's answer to Sky Reign, much like how Convoy Grand Prime and Grand Galvatron were to Optimus Maximus and Galvatronus. The torso is obviously the Sky Lynx mold, while the limbs appear to be the Swindle mold, the Wheeljack mold, the Offroad mold, and the First Aid mold. Based on how Grand Galvatron consisted of retools that Japan had yet to receive, Sky Lynx's limbs could very well likely consist of Hound, Wheeljack, Trailbreaker, and Ratchet (instead of Smokescreen). The name of this combiner, whether it will still be "Sky Reign" or a new name, is unknown at this time. Keep your eyes peeled for more news on this combiner to come in the future.

    This morning, the 82nd episode of Transformers: Rescue Bots aired on Discovery Family. Last episode, we saw the introduction of the first female Rescue Bot named Quickshadow, voiced by Doctor Who's own Alex Kingston. In this episode, titled "Plus One", Quickshadow is brought onto the team and is given the opportunity by Heatwave to try a turn at leading the team in his stead. However, doing so ends up ruining the team's dynamic, and with how often disasters strike Griffin Rock, if the team isn't up to full form, then Lord help the island's residents since they'd likely be in more danger than ever. Shall we see just how Quickshadow does at being a leader? To find out, let's roll to the rescue!

The Bee Team and the Stealth Team have reunited at last, with Bumblebee and Optimus both vying for command when an old friend suddenly shows up to help the team in its latest and biggest mission yet. After hearing many rumors and rumblings about a "Decepticon Island", Bumblebee decides it's time for the team to go full throttle into locating and taking down this threat once and for all. But can a small handful of Autobots really take on an entire army of Decepticons? And what of Steeljaw and his alliance with these Cons? What is Steeljaw's ultimate plan for Glowstrike's and Saberhorn's army? To find out, let's rev up and roll out!
