Fellow Transformers fan and Seibertron.com member fenrir72 has spotted a tweet by Toys'R'Us, revealing another characteristic for the upcoming fan-built combiner Victorion (as revealed here). We already knew she'd be facing off Galvatronus (of whom you can find our gallery here) and his mind-bending powers - but it looks like the six-member team will be able to control gravity! Check out the teaser image below.

Via a number of sources, but traced back to movie dedicated website Deadline, there are reports coming in of a new batch of script writers for the expanded Transformers cinematic universe (under Paramount's aegis). Standing out from the reports is the presumed involvement of The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, Pacific Rim's Zak Penn, Iron Man's Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Lost's Jeff Pinkner. That's quite the bunch right there - but what do you make of the announcement? Let us know in the Energon Pub!

EXCLUSIVE: Two months after Paramount and the Transformers brain trust of Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg and Lorenzo di Bonaventura picked Akiva Goldsman to incubate ideas for a multi-part sequel and spinoff films based on the billion-dollar franchise, they have finalized their “writers room.” And it’s a doozy.

Goldsman’s four-team roster features some of the top names in sci-fi, I’ve learned: Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, Iron Man scribes Art Marcum & Matt Holloway, Pacific Rim 2‘s Zak Penn and Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Lost‘s Jeff Pinkner. I’m hearing the ink isn’t even dry on the deals, but that is a major-league lineup to join Goldsman, who is spearheading it all for the studio, Hasbro, Spielberg and Bay (Bay and Goldsman were college buddies at Wesleyan). More writers will be added.

This is a major priority for new Motion Picture Group President Marc Evans, who’s tasked with getting more movies made. It marks an intriguing new step as studios put even more of a premium on the care and feeding of tentpole franchises, as is the case with James Cameron’s Avatar sequels and Disney’s process for developing its Marvel tentpoles.

Joe: Renegades: Branded as renegades for crimes they did not commit, a heroic group of young G.I.s is forced to "turn fugitive" as they battle to clear their names, and expose the evil that is Cobra Industries -- a seemingly benevolent mega-corporation covertly controlled by a rogues gallery intent on creating a New World Order.

Fellow fan and Seibertronian, Ravage XK pointed us in the direction of an Angry Birds Transformers update for iOS. Here's what he had to share with us:

Ravage XK wrote:Today the iOS update for the Angry Birds Transformers hit the iOS version of the game.

Just had an update for the ios version of the game. Said it was for small fixes to make the game even better.

However, it seems to be the update Android users have been enjoying for a while.

Seems to have delivered the same updated features including:

Updated Map.
New trophy.
Tweaks to the city based levels to highlight bridge switches.
Bots have been rearranged in the barracks and two new ones are shadowed out.


That's not all, the Rovio Entertainment YouTube channel has posted a new video to promote this update, and you can watch the video in the embed below:

The official Transformers Youtube channel has posted two new Designer Desk videos, featuring designer John Warden and this time, their focus is on Superion and Menasor.

In both videos, Mr. Warden gives us a little peek behind the curtain mixed with a little bit of "How It's Made" in which he discusses the enjoyment he had in helping to bring these characters to life in plastic and shows off a few of the designers notes as to their inspiration on some of the design choices. For example, Menasor's horns came to be after receiving a bit of inspiration from Viking Gods!

You can watch both videos in the embeds below and when you're done, come on back to the forums and share your thoughts with us! After watching the videos, if you're still on the fence about these guys, check out the new toys of the Combiner Wars line in our high resolution galleries, betcha can't hold out after that!
