Once again, fellow Seibertron.com user chuckdawg1999 brings us a video review of Transformers figures, and this time it's the turn of the Target exclusive Age of Extinction Silver Knight Optimus Prime and Grimlock! Check out the chrometastic redecos of Dark of the Moon Deluxe Optimus Prime and Fall of Cybertron Voyager Grimlock, including a G1 Predacon sword, in the embedded video below - and make sure to flag these up in the Sightings section and forums if you come across them!
This is the first set I've gotten from the Target exclusive Age of Extinction line. Both Grimlock and Optimus Prime are decked out in nice shinny chrome, especially Prime who is practically covered in Silver. Grimlock features the same accessories from the FOC figure while Prime comes with a G1 Predacon sword. I highly recommend this set especially if you missed out on getting either of these figures.
Courtesy of the PlayStation YouTube channel we have new Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark video featuring the one and only Peter Cullen! Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is the official Transformers: Age of Extinction tie-in video game, but also merges with the Transformers: War for Cybertron/Fall of Cybertron storyline. Cullen explains some the plot points of the upcoming game in the video embedded below:
Bringing the literal definition of Heavy Metal to life, Entertainment Tonight has teased the upcoming SDCC Transformers set. War for Cybertron Optimus Prime, Megatron, Soundwave and Fall of Cybertron Jazz have been repainted, given hair (yes hair), and paired with Transformers: Animated Ratbat and Laserbeak to form the metal band Knights of Unicron!
Target.com has updated their website to include a listing for their exclusive Age of Extinction two-pack of Optimus Prime and Grimlock, and so far, it's listed as in-stock! As a refresher for those who are unaware of this anticipated exclusive, Optimus Prime is a chromed redeco of the Dark of the Moon Deluxe, with a sword borrowed from Generation One Predacon Rampage, and Fall of Cybertron Grimlock with a slavish Generation One-inspired redeco, complete with chromed pecks!
Curiously, the listing names Grimlock as "Ivan", which was Grimlock's codename during production to combat leaks.
As we know from the previous trailer for Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark the Fall of Cybertron Combaticons and their combined form Bruticus will be a featured character. Now thanks to Game Trailers we have a new trailer devoted just to the aforementioned Bruticus.
Our friends at Shout! Factory have fully revealed their upcoming Transformers Cybertron: The Complete Series DVD set. See the cover art and product info mirrored below. This set is scheduled to released on August 8th for $37.99.
The Conclusion Of The Unicron Trilogy!
Unicron has been defeated, but his destruction has created a black hole, which is threatening the Autobots’ home world of Cybertron. It’s up to Optimus Prime, his team of heroic Autobots and their new human friends — Coby, Lori and Bud — to secure the four mystical Cyber Planet Keys, in order to destroy the black hole. Unfortunately, Megatron and the Decepticons are always lurking. And if the Cyber Planet Keys fall into their hands, it could mean the end of life as we know it. The race is on!
Thanks to your fellow Seibertronian It Is Him we can report that the DLC for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron and Transformers: War for Cybertron is on sale this week from the PlayStation store. Click here to check out what's available.
The Official Transformers Facebook page has revealed Target's exclusives for the upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction line, all of which seem to tie into Optimus Prime's "Silver Knight" theme.
First we have a silver redeco of the Optimus Prime Smash and Change figure. Second, and probably the most interesting of the lot, is a two-pack featuring chromed out version of Voyager Fall of Cybertron Grimlock and Deluxe Dark of the Moon Optimus Prime with G1 Predacon Rampage's sword in silver. Next is an all silver version of Titan Optimus Prime. Finally a Construct-Bots set with Grimlock and silver Optimus Prime.
Seibertron.com members Primeultimus and Va'al came across a news article over at GameNGuide that talks about an Activision sale on the PC gaming client, Steam. Among those titles are the War For/Fall Of Cybertron games from the Aligned Continuity/Transformers Prime universe.
Fall Of Cybertron has steadily kept it's rather high price tag of $50.00, and even sales weren't cutting the price too low. Until now! Steam is selling Fall Of Cybertron for $14.99! Not to be outdone, War For Cybertron can be obtained for $4.99! Plus the FOC DLC can be purchased separately or in a bundle for $7.47!
If you were waiting for a good price to help you jump into the world of Transformers gaming, there's no better time than right now, so click either of the links below and you'll take your first step towards being Optimus Prime instead of just watching him on screen.
