Griffin, the owner of Australian fansite Ozformers, has attended Toyfair Australia 2015 and has posted a quick summary of what he saw and heard. Please keep in mind that the mention of release dates and exclusivity are most probably only in regards to Australian or Asian retail.

He wrote the following schedule for the Takara MP releases:

Gold bumblebeeJuly
Convoy reissue
Tracks (he states this is not MP25)
MP25 in Sept (he couldnt reveal the name of MP 25)
Two new "sports cars" for October and November

He then gives a breakdown of the exclusivity (at australian retail) for the platinum releases:

Myer: Conehead Seeker pack and YOTG pair

ToysRUs: Insecticon pack, Perceptor/Blaster, Trypticon, and Dinobots.

While this last news may be fun, it should be noted that this could be a reissue of the G1 deco AOE Dinobots that were released at Comiccon, similarly to how the FOC Bruticus issued at Comiccon was eventually released as a platinum set.

It was also mentioned that if Hasbro do a GEN Slingshot & Wildrider they would come out next year as Combiners are going to be at least two years. This is in line with the statement from Hasbro that only 16 Gen deluxes would be released in 2015.

Also, leader Starscream (redeco of Leader Thundercracker) would be part of wave 4.

The two Hasbro MP releases of this year would be MP Starscream (MP11) and MP Bluestreak, the later will be released in July.

Lastly, it was mentioned that Loyal Subjects wave 3 should be out in the next month (April).

The Australia Toy fair started March 3 and will end the 6th.

Transformers! More than meets the eye.

Beyond good, beyond evil, beyond your wildest imagination, in the year 2005, a war rages between the Autobots and Decepticons. The Autobots have successfully defended Earth from Megatron and his evil band of Decepticons, but they have lost the war at home on Cybertron. Heroes will rise, and evil will be reborn as a new threat in the form of the planet annihilator, Unicron, who sets his sights on Earth and the Autobot Matrix of Leadership.

Hold on tight because the most incredible rock ‘n’ roll adventure is here. It’s the ultimate battle between Autobots and Decepticons as the final confrontation between Optimus Prime and Megatron brings the battle between good and evil to a whole new level. This movie is pure robot-fighting destruction between Dinobots, Junkions, Sharkticons, and robots THE SIZE OF PLANETS. Featuring the voices of Orson Welles, Judd Nelson, Peter Cullen, Leonard Nimoy, and Eric Idle and set to a screaming aural backdrop of Stan Bush and ‘Weird Al’ Yancovic, this movie will obliterate your eyes and ears and leave you crying for more. TRANSFORMERS!!!! (Greg MacLennan)

Bob Budiansky who worked on the Marvel Transformers comic will be attending East Coast Comicon at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, NJ on April 11 and 12. You can see all the guest information here.

East Coast Comicon wrote:During a 20-year career in the comic book industry, mostly at Marvel Comics, Bob Budiansky worked as an editor, illustrator, and writer. Although he edited titles like Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four, was the regular penciler on Ghost Rider for more than a year, and even created and wrote his own series, Sleepwalker, Bob is perhaps best known for the work he did on The Transformers.

Bob was the editor on the very first Transfomers mini-series in 1984. He followed up that hugely successful four-issue intro by scripting most of the next 50-plus issues of the monthly Transformers comic book. He also named, created character profiles of, and wrote Hasbro packaging copy for approximately 250 Transformers during the first six years of the brand’s existence, and developed story treatments as Hasbro introduced new lines of Transformers. And occasionally he even penciled a Transformers comic book cover or two.

Bob is no longer active in the comic book industry, but still produces art commissions based on his comic book work.

Fellow Seibertronian MarkNL has informed us not only of the confirmation of Dutch Comic Con for this coming March in Utrecht, but also of the presence of one of the bastions of earlier Transformers comics as guests: Andrew Wildman, artist on the original Marvel runs, War Within and ReGeneration One! Find out more about the event here, and read on below for a bio of the Marvel, Dreamwave and IDW artist.

Andrew Wildman

his work as an illustrator has been used in advertising and publishing but it is for his work in the field of comics that he is best known.

We reported a while back on the exhibition held by the Children's Museum of Indianapolis with everyone's favourite transforming robots, opening on 7th March. The museum has actually been in touch with us, and via Hasbro approval, shared images and designs for the event, which we've mirrored below to motivate people to visit what looks to be a really fascinating look at the Transformers franchise in a museum setting!

The exhibit design and social media teams at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, the largest children’s museum in the world, are excited to share these preliminary design sketches for the upcoming exhibit Transformers: Robots in Disguise™. The exhibit opens at The Children’s Museum on March 7, in partnership with Hasbro.

These sketches are used to convey the overall experience of the exhibit in the early stages of development.

Courtesy of a tip from fellow Seibertronian Supreme Convoy, we have news of a double bill being offered by the Los Angeles American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theatre, featuring the The Movie of our favourite franchise and its twin cousin: The Transformers and G.I. Joe! The screenings also features a Q&A with directors, storyboard artists and consultants - you can find more information below, and if you're in the area, buy tickets here.

Double Feature! Director & Crew Members In Person!

THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE / G.I. JOE: THE MOVIE
Presented by the American Cinematheque and Dammaged Goods
Discussion between films with TRANSFORMERS story consultant Flint Dille and G.I. JOE director Don Jurwich, story consultant Buzz Dixon and story board director Larry Houston.

THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE
1986, 84 min, USA, Dir: Nelson Shin

The hit animated television series (and action figure toy line) makes its first leap to the big screen! In the year 2005, Optimus Prime and his heroic Autobots struggle to defend their home planet Cybertron from the voracious Unicron (Orson Welles, in his final role) and defeat the evil Decepticons and their ruthless leader, Megatron. The all-star cast giving voice to these battling ’bots includes Judd Nelson, Leonard Nimoy, Robert Stack, Eric Idle, Scatman Crothers and Casey Kasem. Released between the series’ second and third seasons, THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE killed off several major characters and featured a heavy-metal soundtrack and anime style that gave it a slightly darker tone than the TV program - but it’s still intergalactic fun for kids of all ages.


G.I. JOE: THE MOVIE
1987, 93 min, Japan, USA, Dir: Don Jurwich

In this feature-length spinoff of the beloved 1980s TV show, the G.I. Joe soldiers join newest hero Flint (Don Johnson) to take on the evil forces of Cobra, whose ancient Lovecraftian history is revealed as a new enemy, Serpentor, enters the scene. Featuring many of the same cast members as THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE, with Wally Burr once again directing the voices of Frank Welker, Peter Cullen, Chris Latta, Michael Bell, Dan Gilvezan, Neil Ross, Corey Burton, Jack Angel and Gregg Berger. Also features Burgess Meredith and wrestler Sgt. Slaughter.

Screening format: 35mm (THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE) and Blu-ray (G.I. JOE: THE MOVIE)
