The Hasbro Studios official website has updated the webpage for the upcoming Primeverse/Aligned Continuity series Robots In Disguise. This update features new artwork of our newest team of heroes and even gives us character bios! But be warned...there are major spoilers contained within, so read through at your own risk.
OPTIMUS PRIME returns. He will principally serve as a guide to Bumblebee when he needs OP’s help the most. OPTIMUS PRIME’S real journey, and challenge, will involve meeting his predecessors: The 12 Primes. This story will play itself out during the course of the first season. In this series, Bumblebee must learn to fill OPTIMUS PRIME’S shoes as Team Leader. His new Recruits need to function as a well-oiled machine and OPTIMUS PRIME will need to fulfill his destiny and achieve the next step in his evolution into OPTIMUS SUPREME... All before our new baddies join forces and roll out!
Our yellow and black Autobot maintains
a boundless optimism and taste for
adventure. Although Bumblebee may
be completely “no-nonsense” in the
field when he’s up against the baddest
of the bad, once he’s back on Earth
we’ll see his mettle tested by his
underlings (think Arnold in “Kindergarten
Cop”). And while the members of ’Bee’s Earth-based squad may be loose
cannons, they will eventually learn to
be “in this together” and apply their
talents to the cause of good.
A street-smart, fast-thinking rebellious ’Bot, think of Sideswipe as the “Deadpool” of the group. Our somewhat of a lone wolf feels he needs to look for himself first and wishes Strongarm would cut him a break with all her rules and regulations – but when push comes to shove, he heeds the call to action. He will even be known to try and take advantage of some of the other more gullible ’Bots. Sideswipe is cool under pressure and he’s quick with his words and hands. He’s all about getting the drop on his opponent – and looks cool doing it. He will not only learn that it’s “cool to respect authority” (as Sideswipe gains increasing respect for Bumblebee and his teammates), but that he, in turn, has grown to be something of an “authority” figure to Russell, one of our humans on Earth. V-mode: Flashy, Luxury Sportscar.
Strongarm is staunchly dedicated to her career in law enforcement and can’t imagine a world where everyone doesn’t follow the “letter” of the law (i.e., THE RULES). STRONGARM is completely earnest and possesses a world-view devoid of shades of grey. Exposing Strongarm to any criminal behavior instantly flips the switch that activates her righteous sense of justice, wherein she becomes a single minded, unstoppable zero-tolerance machine! Becoming a member of ’Bee’s supreme team is a dream come true and she’ll do everything in her power not to disappoint him. Her personal growth as a ’Bot will be explored throughout this series. Sometimes it’s hard to let go of protocol, but on Earth, she’ll have to learn to bend a little more because not everything is so easy and cut-and-dry. V-mode: Police SUV.
A proverbial “Neanderthal” with a huge heart, Grimlock is a Dinobot that fights hard and plays hard. In fact, he’s the strongest in our new Autobot group. Grimlock was unjustly imprisoned eons ago for his looks and not his deeds. In fact, Grimlock initially joins up with Team ’Bee simply because he didn’t want to miss out on the “fun” of a Monster beat down! On the downside, Grimlock can be a tad gullible, a little too “in the moment,” clumsy, AND then there’s the teeny-tiny detail that a “T-Rex” isn’t exactly the most discreet disguise for an alien ’Bot on Earth. Dinobot mode: T-Rex.
The enthusiastic, hyperactive, roughly human-sized MINI-CON mans the tech and provides maintenance for the new Autobot base (read: he’s a nerd). Fix-It is equal parts mechanic/I.T./mascot, and archivist of the “Most Wanted” dossiers – he was the pilot of the Cybertronian Prison Ship, The Alchemor, that crash landed
on Earth, and is thus intimate with its former inhabitants, their crimes and attributes. He’s a constant tinkerer and will be responsible for building or retrofitting MONSTER HUNT & CAPTURE DEVICES. Transformation modes:
a veritable “Swiss Army Knife” of MECHANIC’S TOOLS.
The show will premiere in 2015, until then, let's discuss these new characters and their cool biographies on the forums, and as always...

Thanks to fellow Seibetron.com user Cyberpath and their eagle eyes, we have a couple more updates from Floro Dery's wonderful archives of concept art for the Transformers, being sold as prints in an Etsy store. Today's update brings us Quintesson concepts and Mini Unicron/the Moon of Unicron. Check them out below, with extra descriptions thanks to Cyberpath!
Shown on the left side is the 1st version of Quintesson, and on the right side is the final version.
Face 1: I used a Pharaoh skull-like face to suggest kingly authority and death.
Face 2: I used a fat face with a sun-like-rays headgear to suggest a happy and smiling face.
Face 3: Here I used the face of evil (devil-like) to suggest an angry face.
Face 4: I used a stern and barbarian face to suggest a grimacing face.
Face 5: And here I used an old woman-like face to suggest a suspicious face.
