Here at Seibertron.com we've made the leap into Japanese hobby specialist magazine, in our mission and dedication to bring the best content to our members and fellow Transformers fans! To that purpose, check out below a full scan of the latest issue of Dengeki and Hobby Japan magazines, featuring Takara Tomy's offerings in the United Warriors (Combiner Wars), Adventure (RID), QT, Legends and Masterpiece lines, including their own Superion - and full Aerialbot shots - main animated series cast with Bumblebee, G2 Bumblebee and Exhaust, Arcee, Chromia and Windblade plus Leader Megatron, DMK Battle of Hong Kong Optimus Prime and much more - check it all out below!
As hinted in the Legends LG-09 Brainstorm gallery posted yesterday, we now have galleries available for Takara Transformers Legends LG-08 Swerve and Tailgate. You can use these to compare with the Hasbro versions and see what the differences are. Since these are only sold as a full set from Takara, some collectors have one or the other already and may be wondering if these are worth the double dip.
It's been a while since we last heard about the Hasbro Transformers Kre-O Battle Changers, but thanks to their YouTube channel, we now have a 15 second commercial showing off some stop-motion animation for the line! Check out Grimlock, Optimus Prime and Bumblebee in the embedded clip below.
Unicron.com has recently interviewed Jeff Kline, an executive producer on Transformers: Prime, Rescue Bots, and the upcoming Robots in Disguise.
During the Interview, Jeff Kline confirmed that Robots in Disguise Season One was completed and that they are starting to work on season two.
Jeff Kline: TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IS DISGUISE IS THE OFFICIAL NAME. RID IS CURRENTLY WRAPPING PRODUCTION ON 26 EPS. FOR SEASON 1… AND WRITING/RECORDING/BOARDING FOR SEASON 2. IT’S SLATED TO PREMIERE ON CARTOON NETWORK IN THE NEXT MONTH OR TWO, THOUGH I HAVEN’T YET HEARD A FIRM “PREMIERE DATE.” BUT, HONESTLY, MY CONTRACT WITH HASBRO ENDED IN DECEMBER, SO I MIGHT BE THE VERY LAST PERSON TO KNOW! (AFTER 5+ YEARS, FELT LIKE IT WAS TIME TO LIVE WITH MY FAMILY IN MAINE AGAIN…)
Thanks to the DLE YouTube channel, you can now view the fourth (and third) episodes in the Mystery of Convoy Returns, this time featuring some more on videogames, specifically the NES Mystery of Convoy game and its upcoming remake, and what appears to be a deleted scene of sorts, loosely translated as paint the salt in the wound. Make of them what you will below!
Following the recent announcement that Robots in Disguise will start airing in March 2015, the official Hasbro Youtube Channel has posted two new videos featuring Fixit and Optimus Prime. The Optimus Prime may be a spoiler to some viewers.
Today, DeNA and Hasbro revealed a variety of new character art for TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS, a new turn-based tactical combat game coming soon to iOS and Android.
TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS is the first game that lets players command a team of both AUTOBOT and DECEPTICON characters, strategically utilizing powerful abilities to defeat their opponents. TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS will feature over 75 iconic characters including classic heroes like Optimus Prime and Bumblebee joining forces with baddies like Megatron and Starscream. The art style mixes retro 80’s appeal with an anime twist that will resonate with Transformers fans both young and old.
In addition, here are some character bios DeNA provided to us:
Bumblebee is always ready for anything. He has an arsenal of gadgets designed just for him, which he can use to meet the needs of any mission. No matter where the Decepticons hide - whether they flee to the deepest ocean, or disappear into the clouds - Bumblebee is ready to pursue and destroy them.
Wheeljack was onboard the Ark ship that initially crashed on Earth. Equal parts medic and inventor, most of the Autobots' scientific advances have come from Wheeljack's lab. Enterprising and outgoing, he's always one of the most popular Autobots. His best invention is a near-impenetrable faceplate, which has been handy when volatile prototype inventions have literally exploded in his face. In combat, his seismic batons ward off enemies.
Autobots | Aerialbots (Hunter)
The newest member of the Aerialbots and the only member that is not a jet plane. His assault helicopter mode gives the team a member with VTOL and hovering capabilities, but he cannot match his teammates' top speed. Being the "new guy" and the slowest flyer of the group makes him feel like he has something to prove. Carries four tracker missiles that process a "spark lock" to their targets. With fellow Aerialbots forms "Superion."
There was a time when the name of Megatron was honored by many across Cybertron But power inevitably corrupts, and none are so powerful as mighty Megatron. Long ago, he forgot he was a hero, and became nothing more than a tyrant. The war he launched eventually drained his home planet of life. Not even the death of a world could sate his hunger for conquest.
Starscream commands one of the most fearsome military units from Cybertron: the Seekers. The squadron has brought him great power and glory, but that means nothing as long as Megatron is the one who rules the Decepticons. Until Starscream can claim that throne, he will have to be content to be king of the Seekers.
Thundercracker lives on fear. Special materials in his jet frame allow him to unleash controlled sonic detonations that can be heard 200 miles away. Streaking across the sky at Mach 6, he wants his enemies to hear him before they see him. He wants them to know he's coming, and cower in fear at their impending doom.
Decepticons | Stunticons (Soldier)
Nasty and underhanded - would rather be scrapped than lose. Prone to overheating, but possesses the greatest pure speed of any Stunticon. Adopting the alt-mode of an advanced concept Formula One race car gives him a sixth gear the Autobots cannot match, but leaves him with a slightly fragile vehicle mode. His fierce competitive streak and unmatched speed makes him the ideal "tip of the spear" for the Stunticon forces. With fellow Stunticons forms "Menasor."
Get ready to command some cities with the Twincast! Join host ScottyP, regulars Counterpunch, Jon3.0, xRotorstormx, Razorclaw0000, Seibertron, and Twincast auditioner Leader Ultra Magnus as they delve into an all toy, all the time episode.
Of course, original stickers in good quality will always be most desirable but what is worth more between:
A g1 toy with reprolabel stickers or a g1 toy with faded/incomplete/scrappy original stickers.
Does applying reprolabels to a G1 transformer make it lose value?

We have been treating it with uncertainty so far, since our first reporting of the news, but multiple Seibertronians, discussion threads, news sources and the official Hasbro Twitter account appear to confirm that the toy company and Netflix have indeed not reached an agreement for the continuation of several of their series. Relevant to our interests, Transformers: Prime, Beast Hunters, Rescue Bots and G1 will all be removed as a result - read more on this below, and head here for a full piece.
Netflix is dropping “My Little Pony” and “Transformers” from its streaming service next month after a failure to come to terms with Hasbro Studios on a new deal.
Other shows coming off on Feb. 2 are “G.I. Joe,” “Pound Puppies” and “Chuck and Friends.” Netflix began carrying Hasbro’s content in 2012.
A Netflix spokeswoman told TheWrap she couldn’t give details about the deal, but added, “Netflix has such a broad set of content that no one vendor accounts for a significant amount of viewing on a consistent basis.”
We're committed to ensuring that ppl can access our shows anytime & anywhere. We're hopeful we can continue to offer them on Netflix in U.S.
Were you unable to make the SacAnime convention at the beginning of January, or did you miss your chance to hear from Peter Cullen, the voice of Optimus Prime (and many many more?). Fear not, as YouTube reviewer Sean Long was not only present, but has also shared recordings of the two panels featuring the veteran voice actor (around 50 minutes each), and an interview with the man himself! They touched upon personal stories, his opinion on Transformers toys past and present, favourite Optimus lines, potential successors, and future projects, from Rescue Bots, Robots in Disguise, and NASA. Find them below for the full viewing.
To refresh your memory about Cullen and his importance to the franchise, check out fellow Seibertronian and voice actor jON3.0's introduction to the man behind the mask, also mirrored below, highlighting the life, career and achievements of one of the human Transformers icons alive.
