Leonard Nimoy, voice actor of Galvatron and Sentinel Prime, dead at 83

Spock - Multiple reports are confirming a sad happening for the end of this week. Established and well-known actor Leonard Nimoy, pillar of science-fiction cinematography through Star Trek character Mr Spock, and part of the Transformers universe in the 1986 animated movie, as the voice of Galvatron, and the live-action feature Dark of the Moon, portraying Sentinel Prime, has passed today at the age of 83. An extensive retrospective on his long career can be read here. The staff of Seibertron.com offers its condolences to Nimoy's family and loved ones. He lived long, and truly prospered.
New Galleries: Robots In Disguise Warrior Class Drift and Optimus Prime

New Galleries: Robots In Disguise Warrior Class Drift and Optimus Prime

Warrior Class - Another day, another gallery update! Today's subjects come from the upcoming Robots in Disguise (2015) Warrior-class range, Drift and Optimus Prime! Drift takes after his appearance in last year's blockbuster Age of Extinction, taking on the form of an orange futuristic sports car that converts into the most honorable of robo-samurais, giving Bludgeon a run for his money! Of note, the Drift featured in these galleries has a small touch-up on his face, his whiskers being Sharpie'd black for a more accurate look. Optimus Prime transforms not only into a truck (as always), but pulls a Motormaster and transforms into the truck and trailer! His weapon of choice in his robot mode is his mighty axe which seems to be an homage to his War for Cybertron incarnation.

chuckdawg1999 has given us a good first look at what to expect from the upcoming Stunticon Offroad in his newest video review. Here's what Chuck has to say: chuckdawg1999 wrote:Like Alpha Bravo, Offroad is a new character that shares some design cues from an older character, in this case Wildrider. Since it uses a transformation scheme that is very reminiscent to the Aerialbots one has to wonder if this a retool or at the least shares a buck with the Autobot team. Offroad might be my - Read More
