Some sneaky news from the SDCC 2014 Transformers panel, as the Hasbro News Twitter account took questions - for one hour - from fans during the preview evening, and are currently answering a selection of them. The first question answered concerns the possibility of more Generations Titans figure, after last year's Metroplex (and its SDCC 2013 exclusive counterpart!).

Metroplex was tied to the Fall of Cybertron game. Big character, big product & you guys love him.

We're always looking to do things that tie together with our great stories.

If you guys continue to love the great products we put out we're going to continue to make them!


The second answer addresses the return of fan-favourite Transformers: Prime Knock Out.

We always get lots of Q's abt everyone's favorite characters from #Transformers lore.

We look at Transformers and there’s 1000’s of wonderful characters to choose from each year.

We think about all the great fans of all ages from Rescue Bots fans to Generations fans.

So we try to balance the toy line each year to pick characters that fans of all ages will love.


(Someone hasn't been reading their IDW Publishing comics of recent..)

Third question is about more characters, Hot Rod and Blurr!

Hot Rod & Blurr – some of our favorites & great characters from our history that many know & love!

Each year we think about the stories we want to tell to Transformers fans of all ages.

We want to make sure we’re tying the product line with the stories being told.

We love to get fans’ feedback as we move forward and build new stories for all of our fans.



All of which sounds like the most non-committal definitely maybe answer in a while. But feel free to speculate away in the Energon Pub discussion boards: what do you think? Will we get more Titan Class figures? Would you like to see more of a particular character?

Quite a while ago we reported the beginning of the Fan Poll Choice Masterpiece Star Saber's journey to production, with some early study sketches. Today, Twitter account TFYuki has teased what could be a fairly big reveal for the figure coming tomorrow. Check out the image below, which appears to feature the original toy's feet over some new design sketches, and speculate away!

UPDATE: The account has also tweeted an image of the new figure's prototype feet, mirrored below.

So everyone, tomorrow at the Tomy booth at Tokyo Toy Show 2014 "Let's Say Go!"

Fellow Seibertron.com user Autobot Genocide has spotted an image on the Planet Iacon Facebook page that seems to suggest some Transformers: Prime mold (and not only) might be repainted into none other than the Autobot Protectobots team! The image, mirrored below, includes Deluxe Ratchet as First Aid, Beast Hunters Prowl as Streetwisesmart and Cyberverse Legion Arcee as Groove, all in the same pack! There is also a smaller image for a Protectobots Evac Squad featuring a redeco of RotF Evac and Generations Grappel as Hot Spot - check it out.

Courtesy of the Planet Iacon fanpage on Facebook, we get a look at an interesting piece of artwork found in a hobby magazine, featuring Takara Masterpiece MP-10 Optimus Prime in new colours, vaguely reminiscent of the Shattered Glass deco. But no, they are in fact the colour scheme of extremely popular (in Japan and elsewhere) anime franchise Neon Genesis Evangelion based EVA Unit-01, shown in the background of the piece. Take a look at the mirrored image below, and a translation of the text, courtesy of Anime News Network!

Transformers News: Potential Takara Tomy Masterpiece MP-10/Neon Genesis Evangelion Crossover Repaint - Updated


The Angels are invading. Breaking a long silence, the mysterious life-forms known as the Angels suddenly appear. The weapons the UN forces gather together in retaliation can't even scratch them. In the end, they turn to the secret agency, NERV, to manage the anti-Angel strategy.

With Neo-Tokyo 3 in their sights, the Angels slowly advance upon the city...but suddenly a spaceship comes hurtling down from the sky above the Angels: the Sky Lynx! Out of the ship emerges warriors of the far-off planet Cybertron. They've come to investigate after noticing an unusual energy reading.

"We can't let a disaster like the Second Impact occur on this planet."
"What?! What are these monsters?!"

The shocked Cybertron convoy sets its sights on an enemy much bigger than themselves.

ROM The Spaceknight Coming to the IDW Transformers Universe?

Remember ROM The Spaceknight? He was one the plethora of robot toys that were launched back in the early 80's, and Milton Bradley and Marvel had hoped to build a franchise around his cosmic adventures. Unfortunately for Milton Bradley the toy tanked, but the Marvel comic gained a following and ran for several years.

So why are we talking about him? Over the past year or so ROM has been showing up on the Transformers radar. This mysterious silver Transformers Bot Shot was among the new figures displayed one year ago at Toy Fair 2013.

Transformers News: ROM The Spaceknight Coming to the IDW Transformers Universe

We later discovered that the figure in question was indeed ROM The Spaceknight when that massive list of upcoming figures leaked out of Hasbro customer service.

TRA BOT SHOTS ROM THE SPACE KNIGHT A2587


Sadly, the Bot Shots line seems to be in limbo and ROM has yet to see a release. However, that may not be end of the line for our silver robotic friend. Hasbro quietly filed for three ROM The Spaceknight trademarks, as cataloged below by Lee Seitz on his blog EclecticLee:

So, there are currently three trademarks Hasbro has applied for. The first is for comic books and was granted in April 2013. They've already used the first of their five possible extensions to use it in commerce (i.e. publish a ROM comic book). Extensions are required every six months if Hasbro doesn't have proof of use. Five extensions give them three years to do so.

The second trademark is for "toy action figures and toy robots convertible into other visual toy forms," which leads to the already existing rumor that Hasbro is going to make Rom part of the Transformers toy line. It, too, was granted in April 2013 and has had one extension filed against it.

The final trademark is for "entertainment services, namely an on-going animated television series for children." This one was only granted in June 2013 and, because I've gotten lazy, is new to me. It would seem to contradict Hasbro making Rom part of the Transformers, unless such a TV series would be a spin-off of Transformers: Prime or something. The first extension was just granted last month.


Bleeding Cool builds upon this by mentioning they've heard from a reliable comics source that IDW will be making a move on this property soon. Lots of potential within the Transformers universe for ROM. IDW's Transformers universe includes multiple robotic races, and let's not forget the upcoming BotCon theme features knights.

Seibertron.com user 5150 Cruiser has spotted a potentially spoilerful post over on entertainment and comics news site ComicBookMovie. The author has allegedly reliable information on the upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction trailer, said to debut soon, via his brother who 'works in the "industry" and always gives [...] good stuff'.

The description, if correct, is packed with spoilers (not necessarily of the plot itself, but of the trailer) and this may be debunked once it actually airs, but don't say we haven't warned you! There are definitely similarities with clips from the Super Bowl teaser clip (rewatch it here!). Check it out below.

-We fade in. We're in space. Calm as it can be. Before we know it, literally dozens of battle ships are approaching as what to be seen in the distance... EARTH.

In the midst of all this, we hear a V.O.

"Optimus Prime..."

-A large battle ship, bigger than the others, hovers over earth.

"You've been on Earth long enough to hear the saying, you can run but you can't hide"

-A LARGE BADASS looking robot (Lockdown?) exits the ship. He stares down Earth from above before these jet-type things come from his back and jumps off, falling down towards Earth at a rapid speed

-Cut to the robot landing on Earth. Crashing into the concrete. So hard that it creates a shock wave miles ahead. The concrete cracks and splits all the way to a farm, where a gang of autobots are surrounding Cade, Tessa, and Shane.

-Optimus looks at the ground, than ahead...

"They have arrived"

-Lockdown, and his badass ship behind him, walks towards Lockdown.

-Optimus tells an autobot to get the three out of here (Cade, Shane, and Tessa), and the autobot tuns into a race car.

-Lockdown face turns into a gun and he shoots it at Optimus.

-Optimus goes down and...

-Cut to the Paramount pictures logo

*Note, that is all like the first 37 seconds*

-We pan over the city of Chicago, where several posters showing the discrimination towards Transformers are displayed in quick flashes. We hear a voice-over, similar to Kelsey Grammar

"We always knew they would return... We just never knew when"

-Cut to facility where hundreds of transformers are being manufactured.

"And they couldn't have picked a better time"

-A title smashes onto screen, "THIS SUMMER"

-We see a shot of Cade face to face with Harold Attinger, (Kelsey Grammar)

Cade-"What do you plan to do?"

-Cut to several Transformers looking beat, weakened, and or destroyed.

"Give them a blessing... An ending to their ever lasting struggles..."

-Cut back to Cade and Harold face to face. Harold, without hesitation, without blinking, he says in the most calm, disturbing voice;

"Their Extinction"

-A tile smashes on the screen "Prepare Yourself"

-This is where the montage of awesome stuff happens. Although my brother didn't give me every single detail, here are the highlights (In order)

• Cade, Tessa, and Shane are all running from a huge battle taking place behind them

• Smash title "For Extinction"

• A decepticon corners Tessa nears a car where he proceeds to pick her up. Following that is Cade yelling "Tessa!!"

• A bunch of helicopters are chasing after the car we saw Cade, Tessa, and Shane get in earlier in the trailer. But... a huge decepticon rises from the ocean/lake next to the highway, and throws a large abandon ship onto the highway causing bridges to collapse.

• Bumblebee burst through a building, literally, and retrieves Cade and Shane while sliding down the other side of the building.

• A shot of Cade holding this cybertonian artifact. (Can't describe it, but it's really gnarly looking and it's described as being a "compass" type thing)

Cade says something like "This has to lead to something"

-Cut to black. We hear a voice-over from OP

"It can't be"

-We cut to OP inside this cybernetic, futuristic cave type things. We fade in and out but then we the picture stand still. OP looks down and sees about 5 HUGE looking autobots.

-Flashes of the 5 autobots awakening... and transforming... and literally TOWERING over OP. (Think Kevin Hart next to Yao Ming)

-We cut to black and we hear a growling, raspy, ROAR! Grimlock baby.

-And now the money shot. We see a bunch of traffic on the main street of Hong Kong. A sort of bump is heard. It grows louder and louder. People exit their taxis and cars. They look behind them. The bump grows louder. So loud and strong that cars are subtlety jumping and people are rocking. People look... They start to scream... They run away...

IN THE DISTANCE, GRIMLOCK (RODE ON BY OPTIMUS), STRAFE (RODE ON BY BUMBLEBEE), SLAG, SLUDGE, AND SNARL, CAUSING A STAMPEDE AND CHARGING TOWARDS THE CAMERA (Minus Strafe who's flying).

-BAM. Cut to the title

Thanks to video game website Nintendo Life, we've been pointed in the direction of a very interesting Amazon.co.uk listing - Activision's Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark. Several listings have appeared, including releases for the Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, XBox One and PS4, but not much more information than a brief marketing blurb of the game, and we have no idea whether this will be connected to the Age of Extinction film. Check out what the listings have to say about it below and click here for an overview of the listings.

UPDATE: The listings appear to have now been removed.

Product Description
The next installment in the incredible Transformers gaming franchise, Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is an exciting action game that is perfect for veteran fans and newcomers.

Earlier today, the Transformers Collectors' Club tweeted several images from the fifty-fifth issue of the Club Magazine, featuring alternate Beast Wars-era characters in new bodies. As many of you will recognize, they all use toy designs lifted from Beast Hunters, Universe (2008), Generations, and Prime.

The characters featured are as follow:

* Rattrap from Prime Rumble
* Botanica from Beast Hunters Soundwave
* Jawbreaker from Beast Hunters Ratchet
* Geckobot from Beast Hunters Wheeljack
* Torca from Universe (2008) Onslaught
* Dynobot (Beast Wars Dinobot) from Generations Springer

Also featured is Transmutate, who will appear alongside Protoform X/Rampage as a TFCC exclusive this year.

But wait, there's more! The Club also made a couple of interesting tweets. The first one states that they used these designs in case they wanted to make toys out of them, and the second says that if the positive feedback keeps coming, then some might even make it to toy-hood in the near future (perhaps as future TFSS exclusives?).

We did use existing molds just on the chance of "maybe"...

So. If we do see some serious demand for these guys, maybe one or two (or more) will show up next year. #geckobot #really #youallsure ???


Will these characters end up as toys? If so, will Botanica finally get her own toy fifteen years after her debut in Beast Machines? Speculate away in the Energon Pub!

Seibertron.com user gavinfuzzy, in their online research, has come across an interesting listing from Brazilian site HobbyBrinquedos. The item appears to be a Hero Masher (figures with removable parts, that kids can mix and match to create different combinations) figure, with electronic features, of the upcoming Age of Extinction Grimlock! As much as the toy does not look like some of the artwork we've seen so far, and the product is not named, the colour scheme matches - but is that enough? Could it be one of the other Dinobots? Check out the image below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub.

UPDATE: There seems to be a whole range of Mashers planned, with additional figures fitting different aesthetics, from movieverse to IDW comics to G1 to Prime. Check out all the images below!

A couple of months ago a member dropped by our forums with a supposed leaked image of Lockdown's face from the upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction film. At the time we had little to go in terms of verifying it's authenticity, but after the licensed product reveals that came out the UK Toy Fair we feel its safe to say this is indeed Lockdown! At this point we can confirm that the gray Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is Lockdown, and comparing the leaked image below to the Lockdown Mashem from the show, this does appear to be his face. As you can see he has a very humanoid face, maybe a little Destro-ish. Our staff member on the scene at the UK Toy Fair, Va'al, also managed to catch a full body glimpse of Lockdown on a mini ad for the Transformers Sparbag. Check him out below.
