“Bah-weep-Graaaaagnah wheep ni ni bong! ”
Casey W. Coller, reporting from my underground workstation! (basement studio) I’m honored and ecstatic to be a part of the TRANSFORMERS Legends Signature Series, following in the footsteps of some amazing artists! I had the chance to choose some of my favorite Transformers to include (and it was hard to narrow it down), and I hope you enjoy playing the game! Good luck and have fun!
Howdy, robofans! If you're in the US, last night at 6pm ET/PT was the first airing of the new animated series Transformers: Robots in Disguise - produced by Hasbro and shown on Cartoon Network - though if you live outside of the States or attended the première event, you may have caught it earlier. We would like to use this platform to suggest you share your thoughts with us in the Energon Pub: what did you think of the 2-part pilot episode? Do you agree with the review posted by Burn? Maybe the one posted by QBKiller94? Would you like to see this loose sequel to Transformers: Prime continue a lot longer, or are you not a fan?
Let those thoughts, and those of other fellow Seibertronians, kickstart our very first.. Robots in Discussion!
To add to the discussion, check out the images tweeted by the Art Director Augusto Barranco to celebrate the airing of the series in the US, featuring the various stages of development for the first villain in the cartoon: Underbite.

We're sad to report more sad news for the history of the Transformers franchise, as Jeff Hale, animation director for the original Generation One cartoon, has passed away at the end of February at the age of 92. The Seibertron.com staff would like to offer their sincere condolences to the Hale family and their loved ones. You can read a detailed synopsis of Hale's life here and below.
Jeff Hale, the award-winning director best known for his work with Sesame Street and the controversial Lenny Bruce short Thank You Mask Man, passed away in late February. He was 92 years old. ASIFA San Francisco president Karl Cohen confirmed his death via email.
Born in Margate, England in 1923, Hale began drawing as a teenager during a long hospital stay and trained at the Royal College of Art in London. His first animation job was at W.M. Larkins studio in England, where Hale trained under German director-designer Peter Sachs. He launched his own commercial studio Biographic Films in 1955 with partners Bob Godfrey and Keith Learner.
Hale later helped set up the San Francisco studio Mill Valley Animation. He also animated the “B-17” segment of the feature Heavy Metal (1981), which was directed by NFB colleague Gerald Potterton. Later he worked as an animation director on Muppet Babies and Transformers, as well as The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show, G.I. Joe and My Little Pony. Hale continued to work, with considerable artistic freedom, on Sesame Street until 1999.
Hale retired to Talent, Oregon where he continued to paint and draw. He is survived by his daughter Margot and son Nick.
We've just received a notification from music performers The Cybertronic Spree of yet another screening of Transformers: The Movie (1986) - this time in Toronto's Bloor Cinema, and featuring a live performance from the robotic band! Find out more from the official website here, and head below for the official press release.
Bloor Takeover: The Cybertronic Spree
Journey beyond good, beyond evil, and beyond your wildest imagination as local robots in disguise The Cybertronic Spree take over the cinema! We kick off the evening with a screening of the 1986 animated feature The Transformers: The Movie. Following the film, Hot Rod, Arcee, Rumble, Unicron, Spike, and a Quintesson take the stage to bust some Deciptichops with the power of rock. Yes, including the classic "The Touch."
8:30 PM: Doors Open
9:00 PM: Screening
Tickets: $15 ($12/$10/FREE for members)
Co-presented by Toronto ComiCon.
THE CYBERTRONIC SPREE TO TAKE OVER HISTORIC BLOOR HOT DOCS CINEMA
Rare screening of The Transformers: The Movie (1986) to be followed by performance of entire soundtrack.
Toronto, ON - (March 10, 2015) - The Cybertronic Spree, the worldâ€™s premiere Transformers-themed party band, is set to take over Bloor Hot Docs Cinema in Toronto on March 21 at 9 p.m. in an event that includes a rare screening of the cult classic 1986 animated film, The Transformers: The Movie.
"As far I know, this has never been done before," says Hotrod, bassist and leader of The Cybertronic Spree. "And I should know, dammit. I'm in the band and have an impeccable memory." He went on to add, "I'm also quite handsome, by Cybertronian standards."
Hotrod is right. A massive cull of Earth's online databases as well as the memory banks of all living humans has indeed shown that not only have theatrical screenings of The Transformers: The Movie been exceptionally rare, but also that they have never been followed by a live performance of the film's soundtrack by any band, let alone The Cybertronic Spree.
"This screening is due to popular demand," adds Rumble, drummer and sarcastic know-it-all of The Cybertronic Spree. "I kept demanding to the band that we should do this! Mostly I just wanna see that scene where Frenzy and I take down Devastator. Not sure how the Constructicons managed to merge while we were inside Astrotrain's cargo compartment, but that doesn't matter."
What does matter, however, is that attendees are guaranteed an experience they will never forget, and one that they can retell their children and their children's children, much like Autobot Kup regales the Dinobots with his war stories in The Transformers: The Movie.
The takeover coincides with that weekend's Toronto Comicon, with convention pass holders receiving a $5 discount on admission to the takeover event. In addition to the screening and the live music performance, there will be an audience Q&A and fans will have the opportunity to meet and take photos with the band.
