At BotCon 2007 we learned that the original G1 Dinobot molds had sadly been lost. This news has since increased the demand for the original Dinobots. Soon collectors are going to have to be careful. The makers of the knock off Mirage are now putting together knock offs of Dinobots Slag and Sludge. You can see knock off Slag and Sludge here and here.

We've been reporting on the status of the release of Steve Jablonsky's musical score for the Transformers Movie for some time now. Over the weekend it was reported that plans for the release of the musical score were in the works. It appears that it will be coming out sooner than any of us thought, as this week's Diamond Comics shipping lists mention a "TRANSFORMERS OFFICIAL SOUNDTRACK CD" as among the products being released this week. This could simply be a rerelease of the Animated Movie score or the earlier live action CD Soundtrack release, but it could be confirmation of the planned release of the musical score. We're not sure, but be sure to keep your eyes open when passing by your local music store.

Another new video clip of the new Transformers TV Series "Transformers: Animated" has surfaced online. This video, according to the description given by the poster on Youtube, was looped during the autograph session at the San-Diego Comic-Con this past weekend.
The video (nearly 5 minutes long) showcases the Autobots in space working on a meteorite. The classics transformation sound can be heard, and we are also given our first glimpse at what appears to be the Matrix.
Our own megatrina has sent us an email with a link to a very interesting article. In the July 29th edition of The New York Times Magazine, there is an article titled "The Real Transformers." Though the in all honesty the article does not talk much about Transformers, but rather the development of robotics today and researchers' attempts to create "sociable robots." We thought is was an interesting read and we wanted to share it with everyone. To read the article yourself click here.
