Fellow Seibertronian VDantes has provided some infromation that Peter Cullen will be attending the upcoming Anime Matsuri Convention, which will be held in Houston Texas April 27th-29th. Here is what he told us.

Hello everyone, I just now decied to join after quite a bit of lurking as I've just gotten a wonderful piece of news! Peter Cullen is going to be one of the special guests at the upcoming convention, Anime Matsuri, in Houston TX April 27-29!

I was recently invited to be a special guest as well and I've been so stoked about getting to meet him that I have to tell as many people as I can about it and I figured, who better than my fellow TF fans?. I have to say my mind is completely molten from the prospect of shareing a guest list with one of my all time greatest childhood heros and I hope to see many of you there.

Danny - VDantes

Views: 19,028 member ZacWilliam1 has posted some information on a few upcoming Transformers guides. He works for Banres & Noble and got the infromation off their computers. Here is what he had to say.

"At work today I found a couple new TF books in our computer system for next year. The first was a new, paperback edition of the DK Transformers: Ultimate Guide. It's coming out 5/21/07 and since the original was only 144 pages and this one clocks in at 152 it's safe to assume it's updated with 8 new pages. $16.99 ISBN# 0756630126

The second is a NEW DK Transformers: Visual Guide. These tend to be a LOT more focused on visual reference and diagrams. It's 72 pages. $19.99 ISBN#0756630134. Same release date as the above.

The last is a new toy collectors guide to Transformers. It's by a Mark Bellomo, 256 pages and supposedly features 1,000 color pictures. It's due out 5/9/07, runs $24.99 and the ISBN# is 0896894452."

Thanks to stormrider of our Energon Pub forums for translating the three Masterpiece Megatron articles that appeared in the latest Japanese Hobby Magazines. Thw translation reveals the folloewing inforation about this much anticipated figure:

The first image:The Headline roughly translates: The true king has returned

As you know Megatron will be an oversized Walter-38 (no surprise there).
He will be due out at the end of March, 2007. His suggested retail price is Y1,0290.
His transformation will be explained in next month's issue of this magazine. (Unfortunately, I don't know the magazine's name, sorry :cry: ).
At the very top, "Takara Land" is referenced.

MP Megatron

The second image:

He will contain die-cast and plastic.
He will stand 30 cm tall.
(The other information is pretty much the same as above.)

MP Megatron 1

The third image:

Gives background information about Megatron. For instance: Who is he? What is his history?

MP Megatron 2

Things that the articles do not discuss:
Modification ideas
The designers

Update from Dengeki Hobby magazine

In particular, Megatron will have a LED inside his fusion cannon. Also, Megatron's head is based on the Transformers "The Movie"

    Today the Diamond Exclusive Botcon 2006 "Transformers Timelines: Dawn of Futures Past" comic was released. One of the pages in the comic featured an advertisement for Transformers Collectors Club membership. Featured in the advertisement are images of the box for the upcoming club exclusive Astrotrain, the mini-cons that will be included with Astrotrain, a close up of his headsculpt and the next club exclusive!

    The figure will be Dawn of Futures Past Airazor. A photo of Airazor's headsculpt is featured in the advertisement. Airazor appears in the comic and is clearly a repaint Energon Slugslinger with a totally new headsculpt. You can see a scan of the advert here at TFW2005.

    Update: Thanks to Fireblast we now have a comfirmation scan from the comic book itself for Airazors mould.
