Groundsplitter from ntfa.net has posted some bad news from the NTFA Minicon held on the 3rd and 4th of November:

We regret that we will have to back out on the exclusive showing of the first episode of Transformers: Animated at the Arlöv Mini-Con this weekend. Both we and Hasbro Nordic thought we had permission to show the full episode, but it seems there was either some miscommunication or just a case of conflicting opinions at Hasbro USA. First one party told us yes, but later another party said no.

We want to emphasize that Hasbro Nordic's manager wanted to make the exclusive showing possible, and thanks to his efforts we can still show a partial preview of the episode, just not the full episode. So you will still get a taste of Transformers: Animated at Mini-Con!


Following this bad news, Groundsplitter posted a short review of what was shown at the NFTA Minicon:

It was a very interesting preview though, and I can tell you that even though I were very sceptical when I saw the first posters for the series a while ago, I think the cartoon may turn out to be quite entertaining. What struck me the most is that it seems all the characters will be portrayed with distinct personalities - a very welcome change compared to the three latest series, were most of the characters were blank slates.
There were also quite a few nods to the old fans - I haven't seen the clips on YouTube so I don't know what has been shown before, but the show actually starts with Optimus Prime looking at some archive clips from the war that ended a few hundred years ago - clips that are taken straight from the original G1 cartoon! And Ratchet is said to have taken part of that war, which poses the question if this is the original Ratchet, or just someone who shares the name.

-UPDATE-
More People who attended the NTFA Minicon have also posted in this thread, with more details about the preview Emerging:
Animated takes place in the 22nd century (or was it 23rd?). Some notes (I don't know what is already known so bear with me):

Blitzwing has three faces, although the third wasn't very clear (the entire Decepticon scene is in the dark). First is the strict monocled guy, the second is a very clichéd Arnie "stupid" German accent and the third was just crazy and singing. Not too sure about this guy, but he might make a cool toy.

Allspark looks vaguely Matrix-shaped with handles, but it's much bigger. So far the only Allspark-carrier has been... Ratchet

Blackarachnia is exactly her BW self (her alt mode is considered organic, btw) and Starscream is exactly his G1 self, personality-wise.

Ratchet has a mix of Ironhide/Kup with the "old-timer" personality thing going on. As mentioned, not clear whether he is actually THE Ratchet.

Sentinel (Prime) is an officer in the Autobot army and Ultra Magnus is the Supreme Commander who bosses Optimus around.

Optimus trained at the Autobot academy and is going about doing heroic stuff from the very beginning, but there must be a reason why he's stuck on a crappy repair mission...

Optimus' axe has quite a few features except the energon blade. It has a rocket thruster on it, and the handle can extend Dragonball style for him to do polevaults. Somehow Optimus can also fire nets.

Just a quick reminder that the November Photo Contest is now open for Entries, with Entries closing on November 17th 2007.

November's Photocontest Theme is: Epic

Your challenge this month my fellow Seibertronians is to depict your Transformers in the very real and brutal war they've fought throughout time. Their war's stretched from the inner chambers of Cybertron to our our own planet and beyond! Alien worlds have crumbled by their destruction. Show us the battles, the aftermath, the casualties, the winners...

Show us war.

Extra comments: Extra attention to clearity of photo (how well we can tell who's fighting who), set up, and scenery will be taken.

Maximum amount of Transformers has been risen to 15 for this contest, but having said that, please be aware that your photo should be clear and easily deciphered. If we have to search around to figure out what's going on, that's a problem.

This contest is meant to truly challenge you all so take special care in you're ideas and how you set up your shots.

As this theme is very broad, it's very easy to have similar photos; Uniqueness and creativity is encouraged.


Entries must be submitted in the Entries Thread.

If you would like to comment on the November Entries, please use the Discussion Thread.

For full information on the rules and what is and isnt allowed, check out the Information Thread.

Best of luck to all Participants!

Optimus Prime approves of these shoes, and apparently so does NIKE.

The long awaited REAL, WEARABLE NIKE shoes influenced by Transformer's characters' colors are making their debut at 'Goliath's' in NYC.

You can check out this release at Freshnessmag.com and the original information can be found here.


Time for you Transformer NIKE fans to pony up again, and grab a fresh pair of kicks to take on the court this weekend. Hopefully this means they will be released elsewhere too!

Simon Furman has once again updated his blog, this time with information relating to his upcoming Visit to London's Forbidden Planet store on Thursday 25th October 2007. Here's what he had to say:

As previously mentioned, I’ll be at London’s Forbidden Planet Megastore this Thursday (25th) PM, signing copies of (among other things) Death’s Head volume 2. The signing is from 6PM for an hour or so, and while DHv2 is headlining, I’ll be more than happy to sign copies of Transformers (Devastation, Beast Wars The Ascending, TF-UK and even Best of the Dinobots) and Terminator 2… and pretty anything else you can lay hands on (wot I wrote) in the store. So come meet and greet, gather any wayward crumbs of upcoming information I may impart along the way (especially if it all ends up in the pub afterwards) and just generally soak up the, um, ambience. The Megastore can be found at 179 Shaftesbury Ave. Hope to see you there!

Furman is well known for leaking tidbits of information about upcoming releases at events such as these, so it could be well worth your while.

The musician best known to Transformers fans for "Dare" and "The Touch" from the original Transformers movie soundtrack (1986), Stan Bush, had some sad news to report on his MySpace Blog.

The UK Concerts set for Oct 5th at Rio's in Leeds and Oct 6th at Rock City in Nottingham have been cancelled. Because of an immigration policy, the singer was denied entry into the United Kingdom.

The following has been taken directly from his MySpace Blog.

"I was denied entry into the UK because of an immigration policy
involving a work permit, so my shows there were canceled. I apologize for any inconvenience to
my fans, many of whom traveled great distances. I did everything I could, but it was
beyond my control. We're looking ahead to arrange something there in the near future.

Yours,

Stan Bush
".
