Robots In Disguise Warrior Class (Deluxe) Grimlock has a well known problem with his arm assembly in which the gray piece of plastic that functions as a ratchet will become loose and even dislodged, causing problems such as stressing the forearm plastic and causing the forearms to become loose and droop, and possibly even break if it gums up badly.
Seibertron has posted a video tutorial on how to fix this problem and even get rid of the stress marks so you can get your awesome Grimlock figure back to it's minty freshness.

Fellow Transformers and Seibetron.com fan Matt Daniele, contacting us from Japan, has recently acquired a Takara Tomy Transformers Adventure TAV07 Roadblock, the G1-Constructicon-esque green and purple deco (in fact a G2 callback to its predecessor) of the Generations Deluxe Scoop figure, and has shared images with us all. Check them out below!
Earlier today, fellow Seibertronian, Shajaki, posted a news article featuring in hand shots of the Takara Tomy version of Robots In Disguise, Transformers Adventure (or TAV) and now we have even more images of the figures and ones yet to see release at this year's Anime Japan Expo!
Autobase Aichi's Facebook page currently features a sizeable number of images from the Anime Japan 2015 Expo in which Transformers Adventures seems to have taken center stage in this year's Transformers display. Also of note, QTransformers and Masterpiece Star Saber are both on display as well. (Masterpiece Star Saber is currently shipping from US e-tailers (and Seibertron.com sponsors) BBTS and The Chosen Prime. You can click on either sponsor's name to be taken directly to the ordering page.)
Thanks to a variety of sources, from Twitter user HaltroN1, to Seibertron.com user Sabrblade, to the official Hasbro website, we can add to today's earlier news about the Tiny Titans Wave 3 blind-bagged figures. The line, adding to the confusion as to what line it is meant to include and represent, appears to consist of RID, G1, Beast Wars and more: RID Drift, G1 Wheeljack, BW Megatron, RID Springload, G1 Optimus Prime, G1 Shockwave, RID Fixit, G1 Repugnus, maybe RID Filch, G1 Wreck-Gar, G1 Doublecross, RID Fracture. Make of that what you will, and check out the images mirrored below!
Takara Tomy has posted a plethora of demonstration videos for both their Transformers Adventure and Easy Dynamic toylines on Youtube. The videos cover TAV-01 Bumblebee through TAV-12 Dreadwing and TED-01 Big Bumblebee through TED-05 Junkion. All 17 videos have been embedded for easy viewing.
As we reported earlier this year, Hasbro and Netflix were unable to come to an agreement and all Hasbro shows were disappearing from Netflix's streams. We have the fantastic news that Hasbro and Netflix have struck up a deal and all Hasbro shows are staying on Netflix!

With the current flurry of screenings across the US of the 1986 Transformers movie, and the unfortunate news of the passing of actor Leonard Nimoy, it's unsurprising that we hear more from the people involved in its creation, from a cast, crew and other perspectives! Entertainment website Topless Robot has posted a list of ten major points to come out of the Q&A session during the event in LA (which you can also watch for yourself via the embedded clip below!), ranging from Flint Dille, voice director Wally Burr and voice actors Neil Ross and Michael Bell. Check out some of it below, and the full piece here!
TR: Did your writing process change when you began scripting the movie as opposed to the TV show?
Flint Dille: Well, it did from the point of view that we knew this was going to be a very big movie. Of course, the purpose of the movie was not only to have something in theaters, but also to introduce next year's product line. Which meant that we had to first kill off the old product line to make way for the new toys.
TR: So Optimus Prime had to die?
FD: Exactly. We just didn't realize that it was going to bother anybody! :laughs: But I'd argue that had we not killed him, we wouldn't be talking about Transformers right now. Still, we didn't know the can of worms that we were opening when we wrote those scenes.
Topless Robot: The film world recently lost Leonard Nimoy, who voiced Galvatron in the Transformers animated feature. Can you talk about what he was like to work with?
Wally Burr: Very professional. Business-like. He came in and was ready to work. I asked him if I could give him the profile of what the show was about, to help get him up to speed. And he said "Go ahead." So I did. And when I finished with the full explanation, he said, "Okay, get your director and let's do this." :laughs: He didn't realize that I was the director! He must have thought I was a production assistant or somebody hired by the studio to hold his hand until he was ready to be used.
TR: What about Orson Welles? He came with quite a reputation, I imagine.
WB: With Mister Welles, I was intimidated in advance. Because if you've ever heard any of the outtake reels on him, he could be pretty tough. And he had a right to be! He could look at any script and say, instantly, I know what you need here. The problem was, he didn't want to be directed. But somebody had to coordinate the session, and that's what a voice director does. We coordinator of the cast. Otherwise, they'd overlap each other. The voice director keeps the characters straight, and so on. So I thought I was going to have a lot of problems with Mister Welles. And I did. At one point he was rather slow in his delivery, so I gently said "Mister Welles, this is sounding great. I'm wondering if I can ask you to pick up the tempo just a little bit." And he said, in that voice of his, "I'm reading this as rapidly as I possibly can. And furthermore, I'll do the slating from now on." Well, the voice director usually slates from the recording booth.
Topless Robot: You both voiced a number of different characters throughout the Transformers film. Did you have any particular favorites to play?
Neil Ross: Yes, I think so. My favorite was called Springer. He could turn into a helicopter at will, and he was just a good, fun, solid hero-type to play. He also didn't involve any throat ripping.
TR: Throat ripping?
NR: :speaks in a painfully scratchy voice: "That's when some of the characters sound like this!"
