Check it out below and, as always, keep it right here, on Seibertron.com for all of the latest and greatest Transformers news.
Dear Seibertronians, you may need to lower your brightness settings for what you are about to see, because it is glorious. We now have color images of Takara Masterpeice Cheetor, thanks to seibertronians steals_your_goats and MaverickPrime. Shown at the Wonderfest 2016 convention, this is the first time we've seen a full-color mock-up of MP Cheetor's robot mode. His beast mode was also on display, but it was unfortunately still in it's grey-scale prototype phase. Check out the photos below, credited to @52toys and @Chohenken!
Seibertronians, it seems Hasbro has finally released their MP-08 Bumblebee to US markets! Yes, the day has finally come, and he's available in the US through the Toys R Us website, along with some of their other SDCC "Exclusive" toys! The included description is the same from the Canadian release:
Transformers Masterpiece figures showcase the greatest Transformers characters in a high level of detail. This Masterpiece Bumblebee figure is inspired by the classic 1986 Transformers animated movie and depicts the Autobot scout in his G1 Volkswagen Beetle form. This ultra-premium, collectible figure is a must-have for any Transformers collection.
Before becoming a renowned warrior and trusted lieutenant to Optimus Prime, Bumblebee was a young scout, eager to prove himself in the eyes of his fellow Autobots. Despite his small stature, Bumblebee earned the respect and admiration of his comrades through acts of bravery that far exceeded his size. He was among the first Autobots to arrive on Earth and, thanks to his friendship with Spike Witwicky, played a crucial role in gaining humanity's trust.
This Masterpiece Bumblebee figure converts from robot mode to a licensed Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle vehicle mode. It comes with a converting Exosuit Spike Witwicky figure. Both are inspired by the classic 1986 Transformers animated film. The figure comes with 2 swappable faceplates (smiling and neutral), a blaster accessory, a removable spare tire cover, and an extra side mirror. MP-08.

We bring to you today 2 new tidbits regarding Robots in Disguise.
Firstly and awesomely comes a new trailer for Season 3! The new trailer features some brand new things, such as the Autobots visiting the original Autobot base from Transformers: Prime, Starscream returning, some weaponizer minicons, and more! Check out the video below:
The second set of news regards a new voice joining the case of Robots in Disguise. Christopher Swindle, who voiced Wheeljack and Frenzy in Transformers: Devastation, has joined the case of Robots in Disguise, and it set to voice a new Decepticon some time soon! HERE is his confirmation tweet.
Through a press release from IDW Publishing, as well as the SDCC 2016 panel this afternoon IDW and Hasbro: The Revolution is Now, we've gained our first glimpses into the world of Transformers comics after the Revolution crossover event. The Transformers related points from IDW's press release follow shortly below, but please be forewarned that reading this information may (and almost definitely will for some readers) spoil currently running story arcs in both The Transformers and More Than Meets The Eye!
The Revolution ripple effect continues to shake things up as IDW’s Transformers line will see some changes with the introduction of two new ongoing titles: Transformers: Lost Light and the first-ever ongoing Optimus Prime series.
Transformers: Lost Light will continue the fan-favorite adventures told by More Than Meets the Eye writer James Roberts, joined on art by Jack Lawrence (Doctor Who Adventures). Beginning in December, this new series will take Rodimus and the crew of the starship Lost Light into the farthest reaches of the universe, searching for the long-lost Knights of Cybertron.
Next, John Barber, who recently exited his post as IDW’s Hasbro Group Editor, won’t be straying too far from his IDW roots as he tackles Optimus Prime, the first solo series to star the eponymous Autobot. John will be joined by artist Kei Zama (Scarlett Witch). Optimus Prime has declared Earth to be under his protection—and this November, he’ll have to face the consequences.
All those titles will join the currently running Transformers: Till All Are One, Micronauts, and upcoming ROM, which will each continue on, their storylines now converging with this newly established universe as their backdrop.
Other news and notes from this afternoon's panel include:
The Transformers: Revolution crossover comic will feature Thundercracker and Buster saving the White House
Til All Are One: Revolution to primarily crossover with Micronauts
More Than Meets the Eye: Revolution will be co-written by both James Roberts and Nick Roche, reuniting the Last Stand of the Wreckers creative team for the first time since that series. The book will also feature Alex Milne on art.
Speaking of Alex Milne, he will be still be handling art duties on Transformers: Lost Light for 'alternating' story arcs (in other words, fans of the book's look need not fear!)
Transformers: Lost Light is essentially More Than Meets The Eye Season 3 with a name change.
