Toy News: Tokyo Toy Show photos reveal upcoming Takara Tomy releases

The Tokyo Toy Show for 2016 has officially kicked off, and with it new reveals for upcoming Takara Tomy Transformers releases! Thanks to @gadepon on Twitter we have our first look at Masterpiece Thrust and the Unite Warriors version of Sky Reign! Thrust has been anticipated ever since Ramjet came out, and it looks like Sky Reign comes with Ratchet! Previously the only "Combiner Wars" Ratchet figure was from the Botcon 2016 custom class, so this is awesome for fans who missed out on that figure.

Toy Review: "Transformers Adventure" Battle Grimlock

Grimlock is a former Decepticon imprisoned onboard the Alchemor. Upon his arrival on Earth, he saw an opportunity to redeem himself and protect the innocent with the Autobots! My latest review is Battle Grimlock from "Transformers Adventure"!

Music News: "Transformers The Movie" soundtrack available on vinyl

"Transformers The Movie" composer Vince DiCola has posted about several items for sale. One item that sold out very quickly at Botcon 2016 was the soundtrack for "Transformers The Movie" on vinyl! This beautiful set comes in a gorgeous wrap around case. I actually managed to purchase the last copy of this at Botcon and it's a very cool piece for any G1 fan.

Charity Auction Alert: TRU, SDCC Exclusive items including Transformers & Star Wars

Joe Moscone was one of the most visible PR folks from Hunter PR for many years. He helped plan and execute events ranting from Toy Fair to Botcon. While he is no longer with Hunter PR, he does have a lot of swag left over from his days working with Hasbro and he's putting them towards a good cause! In Joe's words:

Game News: "Earth Wars" Developer Diary #3

in Generations, News

"Transformers Earth Wars" has been released but the folks over at Space Ape are not resting on their laurels. Today they've released a new "Developer Diary" video focusing on the art of the game from the design of the characters to the actual 3D modeling. In particular note how they discuss not wanting to "cheat" the transformations but actually having the model reuse its parts in both modes. This also gives us a look at Cliffjumper (who I have not seen in the game yet).

Ratbat is one of the Mini-Cons working with the Decepticons. Whether he is working on his own or with Fracture he is a dangerous force to be reckoned with! Check out my review of Mini-Con Ratbat.

Movie News: "The Last Knight" set photos reveal possible characters (POSSIBLE SPOILERS)

Movie News: "The Last Knight" set photos reveal possible characters (POSSIBLE SPOILERS)

Several photos have appeared online from the filming of "The Last Knight". These photos feature several of the real life vehicles being used in the filming of the movie. The photos show Bumblebee and a Mustang-based police car that appears to be Barricade! Of course, the character was destroyed in earlier films, so it is possible this is just another "model" of Decepticon similar to Barricade.

You can check out the photos on Felix Features.
