Here are some additional in-hand images of the brand new Transformers Prime Entertainment Pack which includes variants of the First Edition Bumblebee and Starscream toys as well as two human figurines of Leland "Silas" Bishop and a MECH Soldier. We originally posted a couple of teaser pics last week courtesy of site sponsor RobotKingdom.com. Earlier this month at Toy Fair 2012, Hasbro stated that this set would not be available in the United States unfortunately and would only be sold in Hasbro's markets in Asia (and possibly Canada). This set was purchased from RobotKingdom.com (set / case).
Of special note with this packaging is that on the bottom of the box, the Transformers Prime Robots In Disguise Voyagers Class Optimus Prime and Megatron toys are referred to as "Powerizers", which is the first time that word has appeared on any packaging. At this time, we are assuming that this name was dropped in favor of retaining the Voyager Class name for simpler marketing purposes. "Powerizers" refers to the light up feature in the Voyager Class weapons in this line.
Check back later this week for Seibertron.com's gallery of this set. Don't forget to check out the 29 Transformers Prime galleries that we currently have which you can view by clicking here.
Good news Bot Shots fans! The three-packs that were revealed at Toy Fair earlier this month have already started to show up at retail. TFW2005 member Hollywood Hoist found the sets at a Toys"R"Us location in Washington. The Decepticon set features Nemesis Prime, Megatron, and a translucent Acid Storm. The Autobot set features Sentinel Prime, Prowl, and Bumblebee.
The more we learn about the Fall of Cybertron Combaticons, the more the team seems to increase in brightness. Some slight variations on what we have seen from Toy Fair. These images have been posted on the Official Transformers Facebook page. Check out some of the pictures below or click here to view the originating post.

Blu-ray.com has reviewed the soon to be released Transformers Prime: Season One Blur-ray. Click here to read their full review, we've posted a few excerpts and images below as well as a couple of new promos that we received directly from Shout! Factory. Transformers Prime: Season One Blu-ray is scheduled to release on March 6th. You can pre-order Transformers Prime: Season One [Limited Edition] on Blu-ray and DVD.
Transformers Prime: Season One's 1080p transfer isn't all that consistently pretty. Certainly, there are moments when the animation sparkles, but aside from its flatness, there are some technical bugaboos that drag it down considerably. First, the image is greatly hindered by what is oftentimes intense banding. Huge chunks of the image often suffer through terrible bouts, with entire backgrounds sometimes reduced to large masses of bands of poor color transitions. Unfortunately, many a line are jagged, and aliasing appears with some frequency, too. As noted, the animation is naturally flat and often looks to have a plastic-like texture to it. There's no real flow on anything but the Transformers themselves; human hair and clothes offer no real movement or textures. Such elements are very much flat and stiff, but that's inherent to the original elements, not a fault of the Blu-ray transfer. On the flip side, those Transformers can look quite good in close-ups; the digital artists have taken the time to create some fairly complex elements within eyes, faces, various exposed gears, and the like. Their metallic exteriors are scratched, dented, dirty, and generally well-abused, but that's mostly the extent of fine detailing. Colors, likewise, are very flat and lack much range outside of basic shades. The yellows, reds, greens, whites, and blues that make up the Autobots are bright but monochromatic. The Decepticons are a bit colder, favoring rather flat shades of purple and gray. It's all relatively simple, but it's that intense banding, frequent jaggies, and occasional aliasing that really hurt this one. The banding is nothing short of an eyesore, so audiences sensitive to that might want to rent before committing to a purchase.

Site Sponsor RobotKingdom have updated their Facebook Page with several in-package images of newly arrived packages - including the second Entertainment Pack - featuring slight repaints of First Edition Bumblebee and Starscream, accompanied by a dastardly pair of human figures - MECH Commander Silas and a MECH Soldier.
As we have learned from Seibertron's Toy Fair Coverage this pack will only be available in Asia and Canada, so preorders from North American retailers may be rare. If you want one, be sure to make some friends; that is what the Seibertron Energon Pub is all about!
Back on topic of the repaints, it appears that Bumblebee will feature light blue highlights instead of his typical black stripes, and Starscream replaces some of his dark blue applications with a shade of light purple.
To clarify uninformed reports coming out of Toy Fair - Steven Spielberg and I are working on a whole new re imagining of Transformers, the fourth installment. We have been working on the idea for a few months. I'm excited about where it's headed. But first I'm doing a small $20 million dollar edgy black comedy of a true crime story set in Miami called "Pain and Gain," staring Mark Wahlberg and Dwanye Johnson, and very close to signing on a couple other great actors. I'm extremely excited to simplify my film career this spring with a great character piece.
That starts filming at the end of March. I might then jump onto a very cool television show my company Platinum Dunes is selling to a major cable network. It might be my first pilot I might potentially direct. We are still working out the details of the deal.
FIRST UP FOR THE PROLIFIC FILMMAKER IS “PAIN AND GAIN” STARRING MARK WAHLBERG AND DWAYNE “THE ROCK” JOHNSON, FOLLOWED BY A NEW INSTALLMENT IN THE HUGELY POPULAR “TRANSFORMERS ” FRANCHISE, TO BE RELEASED ON JUNE 29TH, 2014
HOLLYWOOD, CA (February 13, 2012) – Paramount Pictures announced today that director Michael Bay has signed a two-picture deal with the studio, which will commence this spring with the filming of “Pain and Gain,” and will be followed by the next installment in the hit “Transformers” franchise.
Based on a true story, “Pain and Gain” follows a group of bodybuilders who engaged in a campaign of kidnapping, extortion and murder in Florida. First told in an article from the Miami New Times, “Pain and Gain,” will be directed by Bay and will star Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Expected to begin production in early spring, the movie’s producers include Bay, Donald De Line and Ian Bryce.
Following “Pain and Gain,” Bay will bring audiences a new take on the “Transformers” franchise as he begins production on the fourth installment in the hit series of movies based on the best-selling Hasbro toyline. The third, and most recent installment of the franchise, “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” is the fourth highest global grossing film of all time with 1.24 billion dollars of worldwide box office success. Directed by Bay, the movie will re-unite the filmmaking team from the hit franchise, including producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Don Murphy, Tom DeSanto and Ian Bryce; and executive producers Steven Spielberg, Bay, Brian Goldner and Mark Vahradian. Paramount Pictures will release the film on June 29th, 2014.
“Michael has been working on PAIN AND GAIN for a number of years but has patiently waited for the perfect casting to trigger a start," said Adam Goodman, President of Paramount’s Film Group. "Clearly his patience has paid off as we couldn't be more excited about this combo. His passion for this project is just awesome."
In additional to all the high quality images that we posted earlier from Hasbro's Media Day prior to Toy Fair we also had a chance to take some video footage of the upcoming products that were on display. Below you will find embedded video for Transformers Prime Deluxes, Voyagers, Leaders, and Cyberverse. Transformers Kre-O sets including Devastator!
