From the Facebook group Talk Transformers, and translator and user Kelvin Chan/Goktimus Prime, we have confirmation that the Takara Tomy Unite Warriors Superion box set, including all five Aerialbots in the Takara deco (and white hands and feet), will also be released at Australian retail, with English box and instruction sheets! Check out the images of the translations and the original Japanese, plus further details below.

I can now reveal that Hasbro will be releasing TakaraTOMY's Unite Warriors Superion set here. I don't know what the price will be, but I've been told that this will be out at Toys R Us in July. This is another set of instructions which I've translated for Hasbro

The Japanese version shows the function and name of each Aerialbot in Japanese, with just their name written in English in smaller subtitles below the line. For Hasbro's version, I've translated the functions and names to English, and included their mottos in English, Latin and Japanese.

Pretty big news for the Robots in Disguise line. We previously wrote a long list of upcoming figures hinted at in the app. Some of them had a "Clash" subtitle which hinted at another sub-line. Well we finally have confirmation, and not just from Hasbro, but from an actual sighting in Australia (provided by Ozformers).

The sighting lets us know that the Clash of Transformers is a sub-line of Toysrus exclusive redecos of the legion class. It is also so far the only way of procuring Legion Megatronus and the pictures offer us the very first look at this toy.

The two packs found are Bumblebee VS Underbite and Optimus Prime VS Megatronus, whose pictures can be found below. They were found in at Toys R Us in Parramatta, Australia, and each pack was 20$ AUD.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your prodigal host Counterpunch, micron master ScottyP, pinball wizard xRotorstormx, and combiner wars junkie Megatronus - listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.

Episode #117 "Block Town" is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on iTunes and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

We've got toys on the brain tonight folks, and we get started with a few of this year's Club exclusive figures. A couple Twincasters have the first Subscription Service 3.0 figure, Carzap, a few others this year's 'free' Lio Convoy, and yet another the Club Store exclusive Nova Prime. Are these worth your hard earned dollar? While we assess paints apps, heads, and what we're looking forward to, check out Seibertron's galleries of Nova Prime, here.

Gotta watch your back in Block Town.


Time for some main-line talk, starting with Combiner Wars Leader Thundercracker. In-hand images have been piling up, and this figure is in stock at Hasbro Toy Shop and site-sponsor BBTS. Is the Twincast excited for a comic-accurate figure, or resigned to an out-of-scale one? We discuss what could have been, and how we come to terms with what is - it's all quite zen, actually.

Starscream: not far behind.


Seibertron's got brand spanking new galleries of Legions Class Cliffjumper, Skywarp, and Ultra Magnus up and running, and some in our ranks want to know what all the Ultra Magnus fuss is about. Listen in as the rest of the crew discusses these neat little finds - probably coming to a Dollar Store or Big Lots near you!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
Goodbye Minimus Ambus… Hello Ultra Magnus!


We move onto something BIG - San Diego Comic Con's exclusive (oh, that word) Titan Devastator. Some of the Twincast crew is entranced by dat box and others by dat purple chrome, but is dat enough to make the crew pull the trigger? Are we still hung up on our original assessments of this set, or are we coming around? It's a tough call, so tune in.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
Prepare… for extermination.


The Twincast crew gets down to some serious business: Unite Warriors Defensor with deluxe Groove. The Twincast discusses the intrigue of these figures and their exclusive molds and decos. With wave 3 of Combiner Wars appearing at retail, will the crew be picking up Unite Warriors Defensor? What's it mean to be exclusive anyway? Well, you'll just have to listen to find out.

Groooooovy


The time is ripe… for a LISTENER QUESTION! News staff member williamjames88's thoughtful query initiates a lively discussion about buying at retail vs online. In an age of increased convenience and internet dominance, what motivates some of the crew to venture out into the wild of brick and mortar retail? Conversely, what keeps some crew-members married to eCommerce? There are no wrong answers, but some revealing insights into Twincast members' nostalgia, collecting philosophy, and life commitments. Listen in to hear what it's all about.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
Old toys, new channels.


We get on to some unlikely art-talk with the release of five very cool Fembot concepts by IDW artist Alex Milne. The popularity of female Transformers amongst the fandom, and the demand for more toys of such characters, has been an encouraging trend. Will we see these characters take flight in toy or comic form? As always, the Twincast crew has some opinions on that.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
Let me stand next 'toy' your fire…


We touched on SDCC before, so you know we got to talk Botcon! The convention is just a month away, and we've caught wind of some rumored Waspinator-based army builders. Which of these taste-the-rainbow decos make sense, and which don't? Does the Twincast crew even care if these figures fit in, or are we simply excited for some Waspinator-related fun?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
Prepare… for buzz-termination. See what I did there?


We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording - or even since two recordings ago?
Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
This episode, there are some clear winners.


Don't forget, the show only gets better if you tell us how. Drop us a review on iTunes and be sure to tell us what you love, what you hate, and what you want to hear!

Not on the show to give your take? Probably not, so don't forget to keep the discussion going on the Seibertron.com Energon Pub Forums by simply replying to this post!

Got a question for the Twincast? We take all of them, we just don't take them all seriously! Leave a question in the Ask the Twincast thread and, if it makes the cut, it may get read and answered on the show.

Fellow Seibertronian Powered Convoy has kindly linked us to some high-res scans of two latest hobby magazines, Dengeki Hobby and Figure King. While we have seen pretty much all of the images within in a number of recent news stories (Such as Road Rage here, and Groove here, plus Q Transformers here), there are some nice new images of Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-26 Road Rage, especially of the face sculpt for the Tracks retool. Check them out mirrored below!

Transformers Combiner Wars galleries are back with a vengence. This time we take a high resolution photographic look at Combiner Wars Defensor and his component Protectobots Voyager Class Hot Spot, Deluxe Class Rook, First Aid, Streetwise, Blades and Legends Class Groove. You can find all these guys in wave 3 of Combiner Wars.

In this iteration of Defensor, Groove has been replaced as a limb by newcomer Rook and relegated to forming chest armor for Defensor. Fix a snack and click on any of the images to see the full galleries. Seriously there are over 975 new images to drool over in these galleries so it may take a while.

Rumour: Paramount Transformers Expanded Universe - Transformers One Prequel on Cybertron

From the same source as the last big piece of news for the Paramount Transformers franchise, Deadline, we have a very rumorous rumour, and please take it as such until there is any confirmation whatsoever. It appears that the current writers (post-Edgar Wright) for Marvel's upcoming Ant-Man movie, Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, have joined the writers' room for the expanded universe - and may be behind a prequel project by the name of Transformers One - set on Cybertron. Read more here or below, and sound off your speculations on this hearsay piece of information!

Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari, who spent half a year doing the production rewriting on Marvel’s Ant-Man, have become the latest to join the Writer’s Room that Paramount Pictures and director Michael Bay have organized to hatch sequels, prequels and spinoffs on their billion dollar Transformers franchise. I’m hearing that one of the ideas in the works has a working title of Transformers One, and that it is more or less an origins story that takes place on Cybertron, the planet where the good guy and bad guy robots hail from. Those talks originated with rights holder Hasbro. I’d also heard that this might be an animated feature, but that Barrer & Ferrari are also going to the writer’s room with the expectation they’ll write a live action Transformers movie, as well. Paramount insiders said that they haven’t gotten that far on the specific projects, but I am told this is the plan. A Cybertron movie sounds like fertile ground for a feature, to me.

Continuing from yesterday's Combiner Wars related Soundwave post on the official Transformers Facebook page, fellow Seibertronian Moonshot has spotted an update featuring Laserbeak, in the same vein as the Decepticon believer - check out the page's description and the mirrored image below!

Soundwave has sent noted Decepticon spy Laserbeak to learn everything he can about the Combiners. He’ll be sending reports all summer long, so check in to see the latest Combiner news.

It appears that after a number of several further misplacements, pre-registration for the 2015 BotCon event may finally have stabilised enough to at least process Attendee packages. In the past couple of hours, the following string of messages have been sent by FunPub, and received by potential convention goers.

Good morning,

We have now turned the registration system back on. We have been assured once again that it will work this time under load. It may take a few minutes for successive servers to spool up so I have made the time out 20 minutes. This will keep items in your cart until you finish or the registration times out.

I am sorry for any issues this has caused.

Brian


The application has crashed after no registrations have been processed. We will go back to the programming serving company. We are very upset as well and will be taking action.

We will have registration. I know you are worried and we understand.

I am sorry for any issues this has caused.

Brian


I apologize for the errors our vendor continues to cause us. Since they are our vendor, we take complete responsibility. We are going to try one more time with this system. They are doubling the servers we will be starting with from the last round.

To lighten the load slightly, we will only start with Attending packages. We have Non-attending sets and loose sets set aside for you guys and will allow Non-attending registrations after the load is past for the attending items. The Non-attending packages are turned off so there is no way you can pick one. Please wait until we give you the go-ahead.

If for whatever reason this system fails again, we will do registration a completely different way which is a semi manual system.

Registration retry email coming in a bit.

I am sorry for any issues this has caused,

Brian


And finally, about an hour ago:

They have spooled it up as fast as they can go. Hopefully this works or we will look at a totally different alternative. Last shot on this system.

Again I am sorry for any issues this has caused and this in no way should reflect on the brand,

Brian


What say you, Seibertronians - have you been able to pre-register your spot at BotCon 2015? Any further comments on the situation?

An image of Generations Arcee in a new deco surfaced yesterday and now more images have appeared online, courtesy of Daimchoc's facebook page and his friend Oscar Fung.
These images also feature the Generations Chromia mold in a new deco. While people have been quick to assume that these decos are made to mirror the Combiner Hunter team from the IDW comics (pictured below), this new deco on Chromia is far from similar to that specific deco, which is more along the lines of the how the toy looked in its original release last year.

Let the speculation continue in the Energon Pub!

Awesome news for all of us, fellow Seibertronian Generator_G1 has gotten his hands on the Platinum reissue of G1 Trypticon and provided some pictures.
To anyone wondering how he procured the item it was through:
Generator_G1 wrote:Group buy at our local Transformers FB group thru the local Hasbro distributor.


He also stated that it has every accessory that came with the original G1 toy.
