If there's one combination that Takara really love it's Primes and clear figures. In fact they're releasing no less than four in the near future: the Sons of Cybertron set and the Animated Sons of Cybertron set.

Now TakaraTomy's official website showcases both sets.

Image

The Animated set will be getting a general release at the end of July. The set will cost 4,725 yen.

Image

The Universe set will be available at the Chara Hobby event in Japan at the TakaraTomy booth on the 28th and 29th of August. After that remaining sets will be available from online store ToyHobby Market. It will cost 5,000 yen.

Interestingly the figure in this set is called Optimus Prime, not Convoy, implying that he is not the G1 character but a Movie or Animated character.

Both sets can be seen on TakaraTomy's 2010 event page.

Transformers G1 Action Master Elite Double Punch Europe

Just got back from BotCon and have an itch to get your hands on an original Action Master Double Punch? Check out this auction from eBay seller telephiten.

Up for auction is: European Exclusive G1 Double Punch, to my knowledge, this action master figure was only available in Europe in 1991. One leg can be removed (this is not normal, a peg is broken inside), when put back, stays in and the figure stands well. This could be glued without losing articulation but I decided not to do it so this is up to the new owner. No punching feature

This is a genuine vintage figure, not a reproduction. Please take a look at the larger picture below (What you see is what you get).

We've got a comedic treat for you Transformers fans. Forum member jon3pnt0 shares with us his second place winning entry for the 2010 BotCon Fan Film Festival, 'The Real World Iacon'. While some of the character's voices are not true to their Generation One selfs, jon3pnt0 wanted to have stereotypes similar to what is seen in real reality tv shows. Thus some character voices, not all, were changed to reflect that. Check out the video on Youtube or embed below!

Orlando, Fla. (June 26, 2010) — Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE: HAS) inducted the first class into the new TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame tonight during the annual TRANSFORMERS fan convention known as “Botcon,” which is being held in Orlando for the first time. The TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame honors both those influential in creating and building the iconic entertainment brand as well as TRANSFORMERS characters.

Hasbro inducted four individuals into the TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame who helped shape the global entertainment brand that has spawned popular action figures, comic book series, multiple animated series, video games and two blockbuster live action movies. The inductees, who were in attendance at the ceremony, are:

Image

Bob Budiansky: While working as an editor for Marvel Comics in 1983, Mr. Budiansky named and wrote the personality profiles for most of the first 20 or so TRANSFORMERS characters. He then became the editor of the very first TRANSFORMERS mini-series, which led to his scripting most of the next 50 issues of the monthly TRANSFORMERS comic book. As he continued working with the brand on behalf of Hasbro, he named and wrote the packaging copy and personality profiles of dozens more TRANSFORMERS, and developed story treatments as new lines of TRANSFORMERS were introduced.

Peter Cullen: Mr. Cullen is a voice actor best known for providing the English voice for the wise and heroic AUTOBOT leader OPTIMUS PRIME in the popular 1980s cartoon series “The TRANSFORMERS” and in the 1986 animated film “The TRANSFORMERS: The Movie”. He reprised the role again in 2007 and 2009 in the live action TRANSFORMERS movies, and will return for the third installment slated for 2011. Additionally, he has provided the voice of five other TRANSFORMERS robots during his career.

Kohjin Ohno: Mr. Ohno started his career at TAKARA TOMY, working on the design of the Microman and Diaclone toy lines, which would later become one of the inspirations for the TRANSFORMERS toy line. Mr. Ohno created SUNSTREAKER, which is considered the first “car to robot transforming toy”. He was also instrumental in the introduction of Beast Wars TRANSFORMERS for the Japanese market. He helped design toys for both live action TRANSFORMERS movies. He takes great pride in being the person who designed the largest TRANSFORMERS toy from Generation 1: FORTRESS MAXIMUS.

Hideaki Yoke: While working at TAKARA TOMY, Mr. Yoke invented the Micro-Robot segment within the MICRONAUTS toy line, which featured the engineering innovation of transformation in action figures that were no more than 3 to 4 inches tall. TRANSFORMERS characters MEGATRON, SOUNDWAVE and RAVAGEcan trace their origins to Mr. Yoke’s efforts. He acted as liaison between TAKARA TOMY and Hasbro during the early years of their business relationship.

Image

Hasbro also inducted five iconic characters into the TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame. Heroic AUTOBOTS OPTIMUS PRIME and BUMBLEBEE, as well as evil DECEPTICONS MEGATRON and STARSCREAM were selected for admission by Hasbro’s TRANSFORMERSHall of Fame internal panel of judges. DINOBOT, a character from the 1990’s TRANSFORMERS Beast Wars series, was elected by fans voting at http://www.transformers.com during the month of May.

This year’s BotCon features — for the first time ever — an interactive experience celebrating the launch of the global “HUNT FOR THE DECEPTICONS” online gaming promotion. In this experience, convention attendees can help the heroic AUTOBOTS locate and thwart the menacing DECEPTICONS. BotCon 2010 is the only place fans can partake in this physical interpretation of the online gaming experience.

BotCon also features appearances by iconic voice actors from the recent TRANSFORMERS global blockbuster movies and animated television series, as well as the Hasbro TRANSFORMERS brand team members and other industry guests. Guests have the opportunity to buy and sell merchandise, check out the new Transformers: War for Cybertron video game, attend panel discussions led by TRANSFORMERS experts, view the fan-created diorama and customized figure contest, and win hourly door prizes.

The convention was held at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort in Buena Vista, Florida.
