On a recent trip to my local Toys R Us store, my stepson and I decided to spread the Holiday cheer and give the best gift a child can get, Transformers!

Here's my stepson outside our local TRU sporting a Seibertron.com cap

I think he's checking out a girl in line in this shot.

This small investment will go a long way for some kids. Even GI Joe rocks it out.

These next ones are so the "Pics or it never happened" theories are laid to rest.

Mission Accomplished!

This is just a reminder that even more kids will need our help this holiday season, and it won't hurt to go out and give those kids the things we hold so dear to ourselves.

Happy Holidays Seibertronians!

A delightful tedium- The Transformers Animated Lead Designer and Art Director for Transformers the Animated series has updated his blog with more pictures from his desk featuring a bevy of Transformers toy goodness from vintage G1 to modern Universe.

Derrick also mentions some more ideas that he'd like to do, but hasn't had room to pack into the series yet.

"I don't think I intentionally set out to color code my Transformers, I just group the same characters together, and it sort of happens on it's own. I guess I thought everybody's collections looked like that!

I too would love to see Animated Sharkticons and Battle Beasts... Too many characters, not enough episodes!"


For those not familiar, Sharkticons were the executioners of the Quintessons' trials in the original Transformers movie, and Season 3 of the cartoon. They were the 'dumb muscle' so to speak, the enforcers for their weaker masters.

The Battle Beasts are a different thing entirely. Part of the Headmasters series in Japan (called Beastformers) and featured in the episode "Rebellion On Planet Beast", these armored humanoid creatures sided with both Autobots and Decepticons. In the U.S. they were sold without relation to Transformers whatsoever, unlike the Japanese counterparts.

You can add your two cents to 'A Delightful Tedium', and then c'mon back here for more Transformers goodness.

For most National Basketball Association players, getting your own shoe or action figure is a dream come true, but it seems that one very popular NBA player is upping the ante.

Chinese born basketball player Yao Ming has, apparently, gotten his own Transformer! Taking the form of a basketball, this Transformer changes into a super hero type figure that resembles the NBA hoop star.

Jim Sorenson, the man behind the recently released Ark Compendium volumes (Character animation models from the various G1 series), has updated his blog Disciples of Boltax with a look at some Art that had to be cut from the Ark Compendium's.

Jim pulls no punches, with the first "cut" page featuring the extended Transformation sequence for Fortress Maximus.

As Jim himself states:
If you've read The Ark I and/or II, you know that the books are pretty packed. We basically used every available surface open to us to try to squeeze in extra models. Well, despite that there was quite a lot we couldn't fit.
We can expect to see more "cut" model sheets in near future.

Transformers artist extraordinaire Josh Nizzi has posted some new images of cover art he's done for the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen prequel comics Destiny: Alliance #3 and Defiance #1.

Alliance #3

Defiance #1

As usual, Josh's artwork for Transformers the live action move looks more like a screen capture than art.

According to Chris Mowry's post that we reported here, the Alliance story arc takes place immediately after the end of the first movie, during the Reign of Starscream arc, right up to the beginning of Revenge of the Fallen.

Jim Sorenson sent a message to us earlier today to let us know about his upcoming IDW project titled "The AllSpark Almanac". You can read Jim's new blog at http://boltax.blogspot.com/. This book can be pre-ordered through Amazon.ca.

Here's what Jim said in his blog today about this project:

"I just got permission from my editor, the always snazzy Denton Tipton, to reveal my next IDW project. Bill Forster and I will be collaborating once again to bring you The AllSpark Almanac, a 208 page volume covering Transformers: Animated.

"This volume will be substantially different than the two Ark books. First of all, the volume will be in glorious full COLOR! (That's 'colour', for my British readers.) Secondly, while character models are still a very important part of the book, the scope is much broader. We'll be including character biographies, episode summaries and more. And perhaps the most important difference of all, while the Ark books were a result of research and archival and restoration, this book is being written with the full cooperation of the current production staff. Marty Isenberg and friend of this blog Derrick Wyatt have both been lending their efforts to make sure that this is as accurate and complete as possible.

"The cover is from Marcello Matere and looks amazing. I look forward to telling you more as we get closer to the release date.

"(A quick note - I know Amazon says that it will be 256 pages. We're correcting this. Don't worry, we'll somehow manage to pack 250 pages worth of material into our 208 pages.)"

Titan Magazine's Den Patrick has done an update to his personal blog You Look Like A Little Kid With A Beard and talks about what he's been doing in the comic world as of late.

In the blog, he gives us an update on his Transformers Animated freelance work. Apparently, he's making a type of game that will come out in installments, possibly over two or four issues of Titan Magazine. Here's what he had to share:

I’ve just had more freelance work accepted for Transformers Animated.
I’ve knocked up a little ‘brawling robots’ game, with dice and rules and things! The first part is Optimus Prime vs. Megatron, round two is Prowl vs. Starscream! Go Prowl! These will be in issues #3 and #4 respectively. Props to Danny Preston, the designer: for bringing his unique skills to my simple wordsmithery.
