Kaiyodo, makers of the Dreamwave Inspired Optimus Prime, Ultra Magnus, and Megatron Revoltech figures will be releasing Revoltech versions of Rodimus and Starscream in 2008. For those who don't know, Revoltech figures feature are incredibly poseable, but do not transform.



Update:
Several new photos Revoltech Rodimus & Starscream have surfaced on GA Graphic. These pictures appear to have been taken at the recent Revoltech Expo 2007. *Note that the Prototype of Starscream has the Megatron Gun.

... with a little help from the Official Transformers Club.

Seibertron's own waaaaghlord reports the following:

Pete from the TCC has announced on the club boards which direction the club comic is going to take following the current (post Marvel) Classics arc. While I can't quote directly from the club boards Pete has been kind enough to let members report in broad terms what's coming up to the wider community. And Transtech is it.

This will apparently be a different take to the original post Beast Machines concept, since the Universe comics have already covered the post BM era. Since the club comics have been focusing on the club combiner figures and hopping between realities it's fair to assume that this will in fact be a totally new TF continuity within the broader scope of Timelines. The Transtech name is apparently not being used for the project, what name they are going with is not known as yet.

It's been seven years coming but it looks like the TT designs are finally going to get their day in the sun.


Looks like interesting times ahead for Transformers fans, with Botcon adding a twist to next years toys, and now the TCC reviving Transtech in Comic form.

Botcon.com have updated their website with a new image contain darkening images of Classics Optimus Prime (or could it be Ultra Magnus?) and Cybertron Crosswise/Smokescreen with a third un-identifiable bot beside them.

Also adorning the updated page is a short Quicktime video that promises that "everything you thought you knew will be shattered."
Turn your sound up too, for at the end, a reversed version of the "More than Meets the Eye" riff is played.

Could we be getting some figures based on IDW's Dark Universe? Who knows...

Check out the Botcon.com page for full information.

A date and Location for Botcon 2008 are yet to be confirmed, stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all the latest news as it happens.

Auto Assembly (UK) 2008 Announced

After having to cancel last year, the Auto Assembly has announced it will open it's doors once again on August 2nd 2008, at the Clarendon Suites, Hagley Road in Birmingham, UK.
The following has been taken from their board.

"Yes, it's finally here! We are pleased to announce that Auto Assembly 2008 has been confirmed for Saturday 2nd August 2008 and will once again be taking place at the Clarendon Suites right here in Birmingham, England. After taking a much needed year off, we're back and hoping to bring you the biggest and best Auto Assembly convention EVER with loads of activities, and what could well be our biggest guest line-up to-date...

This time we're running the event to raise funds for Help A Local Child (formerly known as Cash For Kids) - a local children's charity founded by BRMB radio station - through a charity auction and raffle and any excess funds left over from the convention.

Help a Local Child was launched in 1994 with a commitment to helping the children and young people of the West Midlands, who experience the negative effects of poverty, abuse, neglect, homelessness, violence, crime, illness and disability. There are many children in and around the Birmingham area who are carers for their own parents or who are indirect victims of domestic violence or suffer daily pain due to illness. In this world of glamour and gain, these are the children that BRMB want to help. Their focus is local fundraising, with all money raised being awarded locally and really benefiting our community. With the help and support of their listeners, local celebrities, corporate partners, volunteers, and their employees, the fundraising year on year will help more and more children in the area, enabling them to achieve dreams and ambitions they would never have thought possible.

Back to this year's convention and we're going to be having the usual mix of activities - plenty of dealers, video screenings, a bar or two(!), toy and art displays, competitions and guest talks. We're hoping to have our usual mix of UK comic guests including all of our "regulars", another voice actor (who we will announce as soon as possible) but this time we want to have the biggest guest line-up ever at a British Transformers convention!

In 2005 Auto Assembly was the biggest ever held in Europe with 409 fans attending and last year we had 400 attendees and we are confident that we're going to smash the European record next year. Every year we have a fantastic amount of interest for the convention with fans booking up from across Europe and as far afield as Australia and America!

We'll be producing another issue of our fanzine, The Cybertronian Times, producing another one of our infamous "goodie bags" with plenty of great free gifts including two more convention exclusive postcards, and much more!

Anyway, we hope to see many of you there next year and feel free to get in touch if you want to know more! There will be full information about next year's convention going on the website over the coming days and weeks and bookings will be open in the next week or so!

UPDATE:

The following announcement regarding their guests has been directly taken from their board.

"Things are moving along at a blinding pace already for Auto Assembly 2008! No sooner have we announced the convention, that we're now able to announce our first guest!

We are pleased to announce that once again we will be joined by comic artist Simon Williams who will be making his fourth appearance at Auto Assembly. Simon has recently started working for IDW on some of their Transformers titles and doing some work for SFX magazine and is hoping once again to work on one of our exclusive postcards.

Also joining us will be Lew Stringer. Lew's work will be known to fans of the original UK comics published by Marvel when Lew wrote and illustrated the "Combat Colin" backup strip that appeared in the comic. Lew will be making his first and long-awaited appearance at Auto Assembly in 2008!

As always, all of our guests will be appearing subject to work and personal commitments.

TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED MOVIE
Cartoon Network has announced the Transformers Animated Movie: Transform and Roll Out! will premiere on Wednesday, Dec. 26 at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).


The movie kicks off a new animated series based on the Transformers characters.

Here's how the network describes the film:

"Optimus Prime and his small crew of Autobots come into possession of the AllSpark, a powerful Cybertronian artifact that attracts the attention of their long-forgotten enemies the Decepticons and sends them crashing to a strange and distant planet known as Earth.

"Set on Earth in the near future in Detroit, the alien Transformers are thrust into a world populated by humans and automatons. As visitors to Earth, the Transformers -- Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Prowl, Bulkhead and Rathcet-- work in the human world, interacting with the ŒnativesĀ¹ in exciting and humorous ways. Transformers Animaed has been created to showcase the heroic Autobots working together to battle the evil Decepticons and save Earth with kid-relatable plot lines filled with humor, distinctive character personalities, and dynamic action."

We reported earlier that it was a rumor, but it is clearly not any longer.

The old story found here.

And of course, Seibertron has a gallery of Prototype Animated Bulkhead here.
