After the text-based interview with Transformers: Robots in Disguise producer and writer Adam Beechen from a while back, the crew of The Pow Wow Show got in touch with us and shared an on air interview with the man behind the (animated) robots! Check out here the full show, in which the show crew discuss a number of bits and bots with SDCC-based Beechen as of the 13 minute mark up to 58 minutes in.
Howdy fellow Seibertronians! Robots in Disguise 6" Titan Guardians were spotted at US retail today at the Family Dollar in Houma, LA by none other than yours truly. This line was previously reported here to include the 12" Heros with 4 points of articulation and the 6" with no articulation.
I can positively report that the Guardians do in fact have 3 points of articulation, including: shoulder and waist rotation. The Heroes line include Optimus Prime (not pictured), Bumblebee, Sideswipe and Steeljaw.

After Hasbro Transformers: Robots in Disguise Deployer Fracture, fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 offers us a video review of the category companion to the purple bike-con: Drift, along with mini-con Jetstorm! Check out below the embedded clip, and chuck's thoughts.
Rejoice, Drift is better than Fracture! Unfortunately the limitations that Fracture had in terms of articulation are still present on Drift but the whole Deployer gimmick works much more smoothly. Jetstorm looks cool but not cool enough to cover the brick nature of the mold. I can see the bipedal Autobot Deployers getting stale rather quickly. If you want to experience the gimmick then by all means buy Drift but the Deployers aren't a necessary addition to any collection.
How caught up are you with the Transformers: Robots in Disguise animated series? Would you like to find out more about its creation and background? Then the Videos section of the Hasbro Transformers site is for you. After the very first material on the creation of the opening episode, Hasbro have uploaded four more clips showcasing the Story, Characters, Toys and Art Design.
It is with sadness that we bring reports of the passing of anime director and storyboarder Hidehito Ueda, who worked on Transformers: Armada (among many other well-received anime series and movies, such as A.D. Police, Cybuster, Gantz to name a few) - the first part of what has come to be known as the Unicron Trilogy. The news comes from fellow Seibertron.com member Emerje, and the site animenewsnetwork, who state that Ueda, aged 61, had been battling with cancer for over a year.
Armada still holds an ambiguous status in its reception in the fandom, though recent developments in the franchise have been paying homage to the series in the comics and toys.
Seibertron.com would like to extend our warmest condolences to Ueda's family and loved ones.
Earlier today, thanks to fellow Seibertron staffer xRotorstormx, we were told of a Tweet about Takara Tomy's YouTube channel, where they posted a new commercial for their upcoming TAV-21 Optimus Prime, but it wasn't available in our country sadly.
We have seen some images from the Tokyo Toy Show of the upcoming Takara Tomy offering for Transformers Adventure TAV-21 Optimus Prime, with trailer storage and some impressive articulation - we now also have, thanks to TFYuki on Twitter, a closer, clearer shot of this good looking bot as it goes on sale tomorrow (July). Check it out below!
User catz on fellow fansite TFW2005 has unearthed a list of upcoming Takara Tomy Transformers Adventure line figures, though with very little information aside from the titles and codes - so feel free to take all of this as fuel for the speculation engines!
What seems to show up are a number of not-entirely-surprising possible redecos of existing figures in the line, including a new Grimlock (an addition to Gold Armour Grimlock?), One-Step Drift and Fracture, some additional Q Transformers redecos.. and the unexpected Black Shadow and Rumble and Frenzy packs. Take a look below and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!
