As expected, the Transformers: Devastation Facebook page has uploaded a new gameplay video, and we're sharing it below thanks to a notification from fellow Seibertron.com user D-Maximus_Prime. Ready yo get your Motomaster on, as you face the Stunticon as a level boss? Find out more below, including his transformation and attack types!
Just over a month to go, and another quick update from the Facebook page for the upcoming Activision/Platinum Transformers: Devastation game - featuring the first Decepticon bio we've seen so far: the Stunticon leader Motormaster! Check out what the game developers have to say about the purple boxhead, and prepare to see some more inevitable footage from the game soon, if the pattern is kept.
Here is something you do not get to report everyday. 22 year old Danish victoria secret model Josephine Skriver is featured on the latest issue of the Italian version of the Elle fashion magazine. She posted the images of her feature on her facebook page (NOT safe for work) and I have mirrored them below. You will notice that this photo shoot has her walking in New York with none other than Optimus Prime. While most of the writing details what she is wearing, there is a story detailing how this is about a girl on a shopping spree on 5th avenue New York with her boyfriend from outer space. The story ends with the two choosing to have some fast food (I do not know which is least credible, the relationship or the model eating fast food).
Enjoy these otherworldy photos!

Arcee was only just announced as guest star on the second season of Q Transformers, from Takara Tomy and the DLE Channel on YouTube - and here she is, in the new episode titled ' The Road to Dark but Comedic Transformers '! The cast look at Beast Wars and Beast Machines, and its strange Japanese redub; follow along below if you can.
In the news that just won't shut up about itself, we learn today from multiple sources and ultimately the Netflix blog directly, Transformers: Age of Extinction is part of the handful of films dropped by the streaming service as they choose not to renew their contract with cable company Epix, starting in September. Find out more below, and head here for more.
Meanwhile, we have decided not to renew our agreement in the US with Epix, the cable network, which means that some high profile movies including Hunger Games: Catching Fire, World War Z and Transformers: Age of Extinction, will expire at the end of September in the US. If you want to see them on Netflix US, now is the time.
While many of these movies are popular, they are also widely available on cable and other subscription platforms at the same time as they are on Netflix and subject to the same drawn out licensing periods. Through our original films and some innovative licensing arrangements with the movie studios, we are aiming to build a better movie experience for you.
Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your prodigal host Counterpunch, xRotorstormx, TigerTrack24, jON3.0, and Megatronus - listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.
We start out with news from across the Atlantic - an intriguing, remarkably detailed fan survey run by Hasbro UK, allegedly a result of feedback Hasbro received at this year's Auto Assembly. Several members of the Twincast filled out this survey, and boy do we have thoughts. All the thoughts. Also, what's this about 3rd Party items?
This seriously took a couple of hours.
We move on to toys, a staple of our friendly neighborhood podcast, starting with the TFCC Service 4.0 reveals. As of this writing, Bludgeon is the latest Club reveal, and Twincast reactions are mixed. Is this the Bludgeon we're yearning for, or does he leave us wanting?
Optimus Maximus is here! Combiner Wars wave 4, AKA the 1984 Autobots (check out our very own Seibertron galleries, here), and Battle Core Optimus (available at Amazon) are hitting shelves. Will the Twincast crew pick these up? More to the point, will these versions spur us to replace our Classics and Universe figures? It's a tough call, so tune in.
Yea buddy... we feel ya.
We've got some interesting redecos coming out of the Transformers Adventures line, including legends class Override and Runabout, and the ever-stoic and much vaunted deluxe class Vehicon General. These sweet rides have caught the Twincast's eye, so listen in to hear what we think about these speedsters... Megatronus makes the wrong choice.
Ugh. Dem stickers.
We've wound our way back to the MP line, and we still have some gripes about the upcoming and much debated MP-27 Ironhide. Is the Twincast crew capable of making peace with this figure? You're just a download away from finding out. Also, what's with this red Bumblebee?
We want Cliffjumper!
We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording - or even since two recordings ago?
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 RAR has made us aware of a survey called Modern Fan 2015. It's a follow-up to the Hasbro UK rep presence at Auto Assembly. If you select Transformers as a brand of interest, you will be directed to a bunch of very on the nose questions, including your budget for third party toys for instance. RAR describes the survey more in depth in his post below.
One thing though, they do ask for which toy you would like most to see issued or reissued. This is our chance guys, make it count. (I, for instance, kept asking for the following: G1 Overlord (reissue), G1 Dinobots (reissue) and Prime Breakdown)
It seems this survey was released with UK fans in mind but it does ask your country of origin and even mentions Target stores in the questions (a shop that isn't a big chain in the UK) so I guess anyone can do it regardless of where you are from.
If you wish to complete the survey a couple of tips.
1) It's very long so give your self some time to do it.
2) It asks Questions about 3rd party toys so you might need to think do you want to admit to buying them so Hasbro does not see them as a threat, or use the survey as an excuse to say you only buy the things Hasbro doesn't make for example (perhaps that will encourage them to make more neat stuff).
NOTE: You don't get some follow on questions if you answer no to the previous ones.
The Survey asks some questions about your experience and interests as a fan, but does not request personal data, when it's over you get a graph with some data on that seems to vary for some people so you might like to make a note of it.
I got the Gender split data about 2/3rd Male 1/3rd female other people got info on how people described them selves as fans as another example.
Anyway enjoy it - and share your thoughts here.
If you have any things you think the current and future lines are missing mention them here in case someone wants to add them too.
You guys want to see something cool? How about these two awesome Transformers Combiner Wars commercials with fun animation. I don't know about you but they totally sell me on the product (Not that I needed to be sold on these).
The first features Defensor and comes from Australia
This one features Superion and comes from Latin America
We have some additional news today on the upcoming Activision Transformers: Devastation, thanks to Seibertron.com user SlyTF1 and their findings over on XBoxAchievements. It looks like the full list of Trophies (PS4) and Achievements (XBox) has been posted to the site, revealing a grand total of 30, between regular and secret. We've mirrored some screenshots below, but head over here to take a look for yourselves - and be warned, some spoil later bosses and opponents!
