Here is something interesting Amazon Japan listed a preorder for the Transformers Masterpiece Official Guide set to be released on 7/30/2014 for 3,024 yen. Not much information is currently available but one would assume it would cover the entire history of the Masterpiece line and all their releases and perhaps a sneak peak at what's to come in 2015? Keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest in news and updates, plus the best galleries around!

It's been a while since we last talked about the amazing book The Art of Transformers: Prime with author Jim Sorenson, but he's just dropped by Seibertron.com to let everyone know that he, along with Livio Ramondelli, Bill Forster, Ken Christiansen and Prime animators Christophe Vacher, David Harman, Vince Toyama, and Jose Lopez will all be attending a book signing event at Emerald Knights Comics and Games, at 7 pm on Wednesday 18th June, in Burbank! Check out more info below.

Wednesday before BotCon, we're having a big signing with all of the head artists from Prime (each of whom contributed in a major way to The Art of Prime), along with Livio Ramondelli, Bill Forster, and Ken Christiansen. The Prime guys (Christophe Vacher, David Harman, Vince Toyama, and Jose Lopez) won't be at BotCon, so it's not only a good way to kick off BotCon early, but a chance to meet some of the Prime staff that you won't get at the con itself.

A little touch of bad news for those of you who had pre-ordered the Transformers: Legacy package art book by Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster - Amazon.com currently states its release date as January 2015 rather than May 2014 (though you probably noticed not owning it already). Remind yourself of what the book entails below!

Transformers News: Transformers Legacy: A Celebration of Transformers Package Art Release Pushed Back to January 2015


Remember the thrill of tearing open a gift on Christmas morning, discovering a brand-new Transformer in a shiny new box? While the toys were amazing in their own right, what made the packages stand head-and-shoulders above the myriad competing action figures on shelves was the stunning box art. Transformers: Legacy collects hundreds of beautifully airbrushed paintings from the iconic first decade of The Transformers. Hasbro, Takara, and private collectors opened their archives, yielding an unparalled level of quality. Essays and interviews from the original illustrators give unprecedented insight into the process behind the art. This book is chock-full of extras, including never-before-seen artwork from toys that never were, original design sketches, catalog artwork, and more.

We all know this year is the thirtieth anniversary of a certain franchise concerning two warring factions of alien robots that are more than meets the eye. Japanese toy magazine Figure King is definitely well aware of that. So what did they do? Thanks to Seibertron.com user Powered Convoy, we have high-resolution scans of the 196th issue of Figure King, which dedicates over thirty pages to the Transformers! The scans are choc-full of Transformers shenanigans, from Generation One to Age of Extinction, and even has some miscellaneous subjects, such as the recently-revealed Optimus Prime transforming pen and a handful of sketches of the upcoming Masterpiece Star Saber! The scans have been mirrored from AllSpark.com below for your viewing convenience.

Thanks to site owner Seibertron, we now have some in-hand images of the newly released Transformers: Kre-O Character Encyclopedia book! This encyclopedia also comes with a bonus Orion Pax Kreon figure that's armed with a weapon and a previously unknown datapad accessory. The book is filled with character profiles such as Orion Pax himself, as well as comic versions of the stop-motion Kre-O cartoons.

A while back, we posted some unofficial personal sketches by Ken Christiansen, one of the artists on the Covenant of Primus. With a couple of days between then and now, see below for some more work by Ken, this time with his own personal notes on Nexus Prime and final pencilwork for both Micronus Prime and Alpha Trion. Check out his Facebook page for your chance to own one of the original pieces, too!

It may look ridiculous, but this is how I keep notes on art. But, it's pretty effective for me. I must have sketched out the Alpha Trion and Micronus in early 2010 - on my own, after I learned Takara was going to do them - but the idea stuck with me for almost four years, before I got around to it.

And I forgot that I promised to post the 'notes' for Nexus Prime. Well, there it is...wanting to showcase the alt forms, though they would be alien versions.

Incredibly sloppy and simple, but it works for me.

Alpha Trion and Micronus Pencils - NOT actually in the Covenant of Primus

Again, this is just my personal interpretation of the characters I did NOT get to do - I did nearly all, and it's bugged me that I didn't get to complete the set. I'm sure some completionist collectors can relate.

And this isn't a dig at the Takara designs, they did a wonderful job, and their work is the official versions of these characters.

It took me nearly 4 years to get around to drawing them, let's see how long it takes for me to render them out like the rest...
