Hold on to your butts! Today is the day the SDCC 2015 Hasbro Exclusives are available on Hasbro Toy Shop. Though the time is unknown, here is a tip from Seibertron's own Chuckdawg:
Refresh the home page because there will be a link there. Some people have tried doing searches for SDCC and Comic Con but that's not a guarantee to work. FYI I've now heard that the stuff will go up between 9:30-10:30AM EST
Great news for those who own Takara's interpretation of Starscream and Skywarp using the MP-11 mold! Thanks to an announcement from Takara Tomy Mall, we now have news that Thundercracker will also receive Takara's MP-11 treatment, using a more cartoon-inspired deco! MP-11T will be exclusive to Takara Tomy Mall (similar to Unite Warriors UW-04 Defensor), will cost 14,904 yen (approximately $120 USD), limited to 2,000 units, and will be available mid-November of this year. This will probably get a Hasbro Asia release though, so it will be obtainable to fans at a premium. Check out the images below, and sound of your thoughts on the Energon Pub forum!
Fellow Seibertronian Powered Convoy, also an active member over at fellow fansite the Allspark, has sent us some high-resolution scans of previously revealed or seen coming items from Takara Tomy's stables and their licensees, courtesy of the Figure King magazine issue #210. You can check out the images mirrored below, featuring Diaclone Diabattle, MP-27 Ironhide, Q Transformers, UW Devastator and more!
We receive news from TFcon Toronto that their charity auction really went down a treat last weekend! They were able to raise a whopping $10417.40 for Make-A-Wish Canada, and that is all thanks to the fans attending and bidding - so they've sent the informative and thankful post below, for everyone to read and share in the warm glow.
TFcon is very proud to announce that our 2015 charity auction was able to raise $10417.40 for Make-A-Wish® Canada. We are very proud of everyone in our community that contributed to make this amazing feat happen.
Make-A-Wish® Canada creates magical moments for children between the ages of 3 and 17, living with life threatening medical conditions, through granting a child’s one true wish. Make-A-Wish® strives to create hope, strength and joy by giving a child a much needed respite from being sick, allowing them to experience the wholesome enjoyment of just being a “kid” again.
Because the entire family experiences the diagnoses, treatment and day-to-day challenges of caring for a child with an illness, the entire family is included in the wish experience. Make-A-Wish® likes to make sure their families do not have to lift a finger or spend a dime. So if you think of the cost of sending a family of 4 to Disney for a week from the car that picks them up to park activities, souvenirs as well as food and medical insurance the average cost of a wish is $10,000. So that means, because of the TFcon Toronto 2015 charity auction a child will have their wish come true!
Artist Jose Lopez has posted some new Transformers: Robots In Disguise concept art on his Instagram account. These feature some renditions of Strongarm, Fixit, Russel, Bumblebee and Denny, who looks far more like Matches Malone (one of Batman's undercover disguises). The character of Denny had changed quite a bit since conception, as we already knew from our very own Jon Bailey who auditioned for the role, and this is further proof of that.
Also, notice how Fixit initially had threads instead of wheels to move. We also get a bit of an insight into the Bumblebee design from Mr. Lopez:
“Bumblebee from Transformers Robots in Disguise. It was really tough concepting a new look for TF while still wrapping Prime. But we are very happy with the look, plus these guys are easier to draw haha! “
The Transformers Age of Extinction overstock isn't depleting, it seems. Winners (the Canadian name of TJ Maxx) now has Stomp and Chomp Grimlock, and at a reduced price of 50$ canadian (38.36$ US). He might be coming ot a TJ Maxx near you, if you are interested and held off this long. Also, it is to be noted that the recent rare Power Battler figures found (Junkheap, Vehicon, ect) can interact with this toy (as all other Power Battler figures can).
Fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath has spotted a couple more pieces of unused concepts by Transformers artist Floro Dery via the usual Etsy store, this time featuring the Quintesson castle and Ariel, an early version of what then became Elita - check them both out mirrored below!

Another update from Auto Assembly HQ as we inch ever closer to the event! Announced today was their latest guest for August 2015, a fan artist from Japan known in the online fandom as Golby II - Kei Zama! You can find a selection of her work in the links below, as well as some more info on this very talented artist.
While Auto Assembly is taking it’s final bow, we realise the Transformers brand moves ever onward, with new stories, characters and creative artists. It’s fitting therefore, that our latest guest announcement is for one of the brightest new stars in TF art. We are delighted to announce the appearance of the amazing Miss Kei Zama.
Miss Zama will be familiar to many of you through her fan art collaborations, and stunning commission work, under the moniker of GOLBY2, and this has lead to her official work for IDW’s Transformers, providing the RI covers for MTMTE, TF and Windblade in September. We are confident she will only go forward, from there!
While here, Kei will be selling her sketchbook, prints and be taking commissions. Due to the following she has through the fandom, it is worth getting your request in early. To request a commission, go to Kei’s Twitter and Tumblr pages, where a price list will shortly be published, or you can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Kei is making her first journey over here, from Japan, for Auto Assembly and admits she is still picking up English. However, she cannot wait to join us and, in between her stunning work, her admitted love for Judge Dredd, ABC Warriors and all things 2000AD and her excitement for Wreckers, we think she will feel right at home.
If you haven’t already registered for the convention, you can book now for Auto Assembly 2015 which is taking place over the weekend of 21st – 23rd August 2015 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, Birmingham, England.
Another episode of the second series accompanying the Q-Transformers toyline from Takara Tomy has been uploaded to the DLE Channel on Youtube, and is embedded below. The title, you ask? Something along the lines of (sorry, Japanese speakers) 'The Road To Our Favorite Characters In Sengoku Basara' - check out the episode to find out what the Capcom game has to do with Optimus Prime, Lockdown and Tracks. Maybe.
The folks behind CybFest NW have sent us an update concerning their event in Kent, WA, on August 22nd - and they're adding a registration incentive directly from officially licensed Metal Earth Transformers models from Fascinations Inc. Read on below for more!
