Bumblebee is one of the best scouts the Autobots have in their army! Whether it's checking out enemy installations or performing espionage underwater, Bumblebee is always ready to deliver intelligence on the Decepticons!
For millions of years Cybertronians have feared the awesome power of Megatron. However Megatron's thirst for power never ends and when he wanted more he sought out the legendary Mini-Cons so he could take their power as his own!
The combined form of the Protectobots is a noble soul who was designed to protect human life. Defensor not only feels protective of humans, he wishes they could relate to him instead of fearing his great size and power. When he needs to fight, he can use his fireball cannons to melt enemies and a force field to protect anyone in a 50 foot range!
Among the many projects set up as part of the "G2" initiative on Earth are Transformers borne from the "Block Town" division. One of these is an enthusiastic young Autobot named Carzap. Optimistic and brilliant for an Autobot so young, Carzap is a formidable addition to the Autobot army!
Brash, reckless and overconfident, you'd think Sideswipe would not be an asset to Team Bumblebee but this Autobot is also brave, fast and skilled making him invaluable to their efforts to recapture escaped Decepticon criminals.
For the Bounty Hunter Drift, it is not enough to be a warrior or just an Autobot. He also sees his role in life as a teacher to his Mini-Con students. With his students Drift is a force to contend with!
Awesome "Transformers" artist Marcelo Matere has posted the character art for Sky Reign! Sky Reign is the Combiner formed from a group of Autobots and Sky Lynx at the cneter. Of the art Matere says:
"I worked on the pencils for the Combiner Wars Sky Reign package art featuring on the cover of the Transformers Collectors' Club (Official) Magazine #65! Great colors by Sara Pitre-Durocher - Art and studio Volta!"
Followers of this page know I've been reporting for the past couple days from New York Comic-Con 2015. While walking around the convention center today, I stumbled into this awesome promotion/show for "Jurassic World" on DVD. Even better, the 'raptor in the video bears quite the resemblance to a certain dinosaur character from "Beast Wars". Check it out in the embed below!
The Official Botcon web site has posted some exciting news! First, there will be two "Beast Wars" guests: David Kaye (aka Megatron) and Alec Willows (aka Tarantulas)! Kaye is a favorite of the convention and Willows has not been a guest in many years, so it's great to see him return.
Tonight I'll be attending Hasbro's #TRANSFORMERS panel at New York Comic-Con. It starts 8PM EDT. I'll be at the convention all weekend so be sure to follow me on Facebook and on Twitter @BWTF_Ben for updates!
