From an anonymous source, we have some screenshots of the recently announced Transformers: Forged to Fight mobile fighting game from Kabam Vancouver, showing the roster and line-ups of character available on the game, from 'classic' Optimus Prime to movieverse Barricade. The beta version is already open to some countries, so expect more news of this kind coming out soon, too - and keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for some possible exclusive content!
Our fellow seibertronian Death Reviews has some fun news to tell us: Combiner Wars Deluxe Groove is available on Hasbro Toy Shop for the regular retail price of $16.99. Unlike the last May Mayhem, there seemed to be a production snafu with Deluxe Groove, making him more sparesly distributed back in May. However, it looks like there are now more than enough for Hasbro to sell him themselves. Anyone in North America who has wanted this toy for the uninflated price of $16.99 can get him now (or get him again).
While we're still letting the flavour of the teaser trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight settle, and opinions are being formed, we have another sidelook at a corollary piece of news from the footage shown. First of all, here's the trailer again, in High Definition:
You see that stadium, that destroyed, mangled, contorted piece of metal and field and concrete? Let me show you closer, with a screencap from our gallery (which you can find here):
As the local Detroit and Michigan press have also noticed, and are buzzing about, that is none other than old NFL Detroit Lions football stadium, the Pontiac Silverdome! Opened in 1975, home to the Lions until 2001 and host for a number of events, from WrestleMania to FIFA cups, to SuperBowls to NBA matches; it closed down, permanently, in 2014, and is still waiting to find new tenants. Must be nice for the stadium and the area to feature in the latest Paramount production, if anything, even if ravaged by Cybertronian battles - check it out in its former glory and current state below!
As part of their 12 Days of Savings, Hasbro Toy Shop has put up today the Transformers Generations Combiner Wars G2 Bruticus set from Combiner Wars (you can check out its regular retail gallery here) for $49.99 (instead of $99.99). If you're still looking to relive the 90s in full neon with a Combaticon set, this might be the deal for you!

Lost Light is not the only new title coming out from IDW Publishing in the next weeks - as John Barber and Kei Zama join forces for the new Optimus Prime ongoing spinning out of Revolution! Previews World has an interview with ex-editor still-writer and continuity master Barber, which you can read in full here, and snippers are copied below. Optimus Prime as statesman and military leader..?
John Barber: Not to give anything away, but as Revolution starts, Optimus is in a fairly antagonistic relationship with ... well, almost everybody. He’s come to Earth and said the whole planet is going to be part of Cybertron’s Council of World, without asking if the people of Earth wanted to be in it — or if the people of Cybertron wanted them. He’s doing this because he thinks he’s out of options to protect the Earth — he’s tried fighting evil Cybertronians, tried leaving the place alone. But bringing Earth into Cybertron’s fold is the only thing he hasn’t tried.
In Revolution this comes to a head: there’s a big, dangerous thing happening with Ore-13, which is a form of Energon that’s on Earth, and it looks to G.I. Joe like Optimus is behind it, so the threat becomes immediate. This isn’t a spoiler — Optimus is not behind the problem, and in the process of resolving the complex web of Revolution, alliances are formed and new relationships are established.
So...Optimus still has the goal of bringing Earth into the cosmic community of Cybertron. But who’s with him and who’s against him have shifted a bit.
Vince Brusio: How will Optimus’ origin be relayed in this new series? Is there room for the past? Or is the present too busy to spare time for reflection?
John Barber: The first arc goes full-steam-ahead into the present, but there’s a parallel story in pre-war Cybertron, when he was still Orion Pax, before he became Optimus Prime. It’s important for this series to see why Optimus is doing what he’s doing, what’s motivating his actions. He’s not just taking over, and he’s not just being decisive out of nowhere.
There’s a particular point in his life that we haven’t seen that’s really important to how he became Optimus Prime. He has some regrets — there was a war fought between him and Megatron, and that war lasted four million years and destroyed planets — including Cybertron, and very nearly Earth. And the ultimate goal of both sides was sort of the same — both sides were against an evil and corrupt system that had taken over Cybertron.
The first arc is called “New Cybertron,” so the war — and the events that led to it — weigh on Optimus’ every action.
Because Optimus made such a bold move in annexing Earth, the story was necessarily going to focus on him — or, at the very least, he becomes the axis on which the story pivots. There’s still a big supporting cast — Soundwave, Arcee, Jazz, Victorion, many others; plus the human contingent — but the shadow of Optimus’ actions is so big they can’t help but be pulled into his gravity. We’ll be seeing Optimus through their eyes.
Think IDW's first issue to their new comic series Lost Light; the sequel to the critically-acclaimed More Than Meets The Eye penned by James Roberts can't get any more covers? Well, think again! Straight from RIPT Apparel - the company responsible for the awesome MTMTE/My Chemical Romance shirt earlier this year and another exclusive cover for Optimus Prime #1 - comes a new exclusive cover for Lost Light's first issue; featuring Team Rodimus guns blazing in an epic homage to the iconic poster for 1986's The Transformers: The Movie. Check the full cover out below and tell us what you think in the forums!
You're probably thinking 'we've seen the new Transformers: The Last Knight teaser trailer already' - and you'd be correct. But we now have a Super HD version directly from Paramount up on our YouTube channel, and embedded below, so you can feast your optics on the latest Bayhem production!
Also included below are two featurettes, on IMAX's anniversary with Transformers and on Freya the rescue dog who stars in the movie, both of which were stories we covered here and here. Check them all out!
You read that title right, the latest Robots in Disguise Warrior figures have been found at retail. A toysrus in Glendale, Arizona, to be precise. It was even found during their Buy One Get One 40% off sale (which is happening right now, if you were unaware). This is wave 10 in the warriors class and it is currently unavailable for preorders online. What is most interesting is that the phots provided by TFW2005 user Rabble show the rest of the wave. So along with Stormshot, Blastwave and a white redeco of Drift, this wave also includes a rerelease of Strongarm and a rerelease of the previously exclusive Starscream. It is unclear if this Starscream is different from the Clash of the Transformers Toysrus figure. There can be other rereleased figures part of this wave but that is also unconfirmed. They all sport a new Combiner Force logo on the box, highlighting the 2017 subline.
