Thanks to tips from fellow Seibertron.com user Sabrblade, we can share the first two episodes of the Transformers Q videos from Takara Tomy. The first episode is summarised below by Sabrblade, and features Bumblebee, Lockdown and Optimus Prime discussing the Transformers toys and the 30th - while the second discusses the Mystery of Convoy game, and Transformers games in general. Check them both out below!

"30-Shūnen Shōhin no Nazo" (The Mystery of the 30th Anniversary Merchandise).

The gist of the episode is that Bumblebee, Lockdown, and Optimus talk about how it's now the 30th anniversary of the brand, how the Q Transformers toys are "cutie" (QT) versions of the Transformers, and then discuss what would happen in cases that would try to make Transformers cuter (along with their own reactions, be they silly or horrified).




"Kakujitsu na Kusogee no Nazo" (The Mystery of a Game That Certainly Stinks). (Kusogee or kuso-game literally "crappy games.")

If there is one category that Paramount and Michael Bay's Transformers movies can be recognised as succeeding by most fans, it's in the visual effects departments. And it seems as though the industry also agrees, as we know from ComingSoon.net: Age of Extinction has been nominated for the 13th Annual VES Awards, in the Outstanding Models in any Motion Media Project category! Read a bit below, and find out more about other nominees here.

“Visual effects in and by themselves are nothing unless they serve the story,” said Jeffrey A. Okun, VES Chair. “This year, more than ever, we are seeing amazing work that not only serves the story but tells the story in a manner never before seen. The VES Awards is proud that we are the only organization that showcases and honors these amazing artists in depth and across a wide range of fields. We are extremely proud of our nominees!”

Japanese hobby show Super Festival 67 took place last week-end and the Autobase Aichi facebook page has posted some pictures of the Transfomrers related items on display at the event.

The pictures show us the upcoming Goshooter (from the nightbeat mold) and Shouki (from the Astrotrain mold) figures, as well as Super Deformed Optimus Prime and Rodimus, the later of which was never shown before.

There were also some original unlettered pages from the Transformers: The Headmasters manga on display.

Another item of interest is a big promo poster featuring a faceless picture of Starscream Pretender toy for people to put their face behind.

Mirrored images can be found below.

Could this be a hint at a Pretender reissues? Let us know what your thoughts are in the Energon Pub!

These feature characters that were previously revealed through previous clips and the Tiny Titans line, such as Hammerstrike and Thunderhoof.

Along with these decepticons, these stills also show us a new Decepticon bird, a new Alt Mode for Grimlock, more Strongarm on Sideswipe action and Jazz!

Transformers News: New Transformers: Battle Tactics Mobile Game

DeNA and Hasbro Reveal New Mobile Game,
TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS

SAN FRANCISCO –December 10, 2014– DeNA and Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) today announced TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS, a new turn-based tactical combat game based on the TRANSFORMERS universe, is currently in development for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and Android devices. In TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS, players will collect iconic TRANSFORMERS characters, assembling teams of AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS characters, including fan favorites found within the pages of the IDW Combiner Wars series, to battle friends and fans from around the globe. Players and TRANSFORMERS fans can pre-register to receive updates about the game and unlock powerful in-game content for everyone at launch at the website: http://www.transformersbattletactics.com.



TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TATICS will be available as a free download and will feature more than 75 classic TRANSFORMERS characters including OPTIMUS PRIME, MEGATRON, STARSCREAM, and BUMBLEBEE. Battles are swift and require strategic decision-making to propel players to victory. Each TRANSFORMERS character has unique stats and abilities, which shift as players convert them from robot to their alternate mode. The unique graphic style is inspired by the TRANSFORMERS Generations Combiner Wars characters and comic book series. TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS includes an expansive single-player campaign, story-driven in-game events and real-time player-vs-player (PvP) matches for players around the world to engage in strategic battles and rise to the top of the leaderboards.

"TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS blends fast action and strategic gameplay with a style TRANSFORMERS fans of all generations will appreciate,” said Barry Dorf, vice president of partnerships and alliances at DeNA. “From collecting new TRANSFORMERS to creating mash-up teams of AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS to battling against friends and fans around the world, players will have an epic amount of content to enjoy once the game ‘Rolls Out’ in 2015.”

TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS is the third title in an exclusive three-year agreement between DeNA and Hasbro to develop and publish mobile games based on the TRANSFORMERS franchise. Extending beyond the card-based battling in TRANSFORMERS: LEGENDS and the runner action of TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION games – The Official Mobile Game, TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS marks the first mobile turn-based strategy game set in the beloved TRANSFORMERS universe.

"The strategic combat and visual style of TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS is a really fresh, fun and exciting take on the TRANSFORMERS brand,” said Mark Blecher, SVP Digital Gaming & Corporate Development at Hasbro, Inc.

TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS will be available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and Android devices in 2015. To pre-register for updates about the game and unlock powerful in-game content for everyone at launch visit http://www.transformersbattletactics.com

Fresh and energized before an inevitable turkey-coma, the Twincast / Podcast is back to present our latest episode. Join host Scotty P as he sits down with the mysterious Punch, as well as our second potential new friend, SW's Silverhammer.

Episode #106 "McCarthyism" is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

We start out by taking a look at the potentially not as easy to get MP Exhaust and his battle against the forces of Philip Morris and the US Government. Will the Decepticons succeed in driving the cast to chain smoke for the rest of the episode? Or will the Truth campaign prevail? Neither of these things are addressed as we pick apart this tale of when the worlds of legal agreements and import Japanese Masterpiece Transformers collide.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Smoooooooke.


We then take a trip back into the Movieverse and take a look at the awfully tempting paint job of Takara Tomy's AD-31 Armor Knight Optimus Prime. Is this a case of taking advantage of lower costs, or a premium piece that the cast will be avoiding?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
You will buy me, or I will kill you.


Generations takes center stage next when we have a chat about the initial Combiner Wars wave now that there are official images from Hasbro of these upcoming toys. Find out who's happy, who's soured, and who just takes things as they are.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Crotch elbows got nothin' on chest shoulders.


In our special topic of sorts for the episode, we take a look at some older toys that have worked their way back into our hearts over the years. What toys have you re-discovered a love for lately? Maybe it's something you didn't appreciate before, or maybe something completely ignored years and years ago. Either way, let us know what kind of Transformers stuff you've either re-discovered or newly discovered recently by replying to this post. It doesn't have to be all about toys either!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Sailing back into your heart, and the world of the living.


We then move on to comics talk (starts at 55:21, skip to 1:22:56 or so to avoid spoilers), first by exploring the return of Shane McCarthy to the Transformers world in this month's Drift: Empire of Stone #1. Does Drift return to bring the fandom its favorite thing? We don't think so, plus, yours truly gets all hypocritical with the artwork given how Regeneration One went, so tune in for that fun and more.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Drift's a dandy guy, doing dandy things, in space.


Then we move on to the latest chapter in the complex space opera landscape of More Than Meets the Eye #35. Has the cast had enough of this time travel business? And what's Brainstorm been up to? Full on spoiler warning continues for this section, so be warned!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Get the getaway car, Counterpunch, he's figured out the show!


On a somber and/or cynical note, we chat about the layoffs at Jagex, the company responsible for the Transformers Universe MMO game that never quite got into the air. Listen in to our compelling discussion as no one is surprised by this turn of events.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
A visual representation of hopes for this project.


We then finish off with some Bragging Rights. Prepare to be dazzled by our tens of collective additions!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Lots of Maketoys in this one.


That wraps things up for another episode! We sincerely hope you enjoy this one.

Don't forget, the show only gets better if you tell us how. Drop us a review on iTunes and be sure to tell us what you love, what you hate, and what you want to hear!
