Very much like last year's fictional Tornado journal pages, the BotCon crew have created three new Facebook pages and profiles tying in to this year's theme and event in the new FunPub instalment. All working under the banner of the Axiom Nexus News channel, the three characters include investigative journalist Rook, reporter Andromeda and the unnamed News Editor. You can find out more and follow their doings by clicking on their profile images below!

Thanks to a notification from fellow Seibertron.com user Cyberpath, and found on fellow fan Daniel Arseneault's account on Twitter, we have mirrored below a number of transformation animation sheets for characters starring in the 1986 Transformers animated feature! These were not included in The Ark collection, we are told, so they might be the first time some of us will encounter them - take some time below with Hot Rod, Arcee, Springer, Kup, Ultra Magnus, Wreck-Gar, Blurr and their weapons, with some extra material for Hot Rod.
NEW YORK, May 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Launching today, TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS: DINO ISLAND, an interactive storybook app from PlayDate Digital, under license by Hasbro, Inc., features the TRANSFORMERS Rescue Bots changing into dinosaur robot forms to save the day. When the going gets tough, the TRANSFORMERS Rescue Bots go "Dino Bot" in this exciting and educational story, perfect for early and emerging readers.
Similar to PlayDate's storybook app TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS: SKY FOREST RESCUE, which launched in 2014, OPTIMUS PRIME recruits the reader to help the Rescue Bots train and join the action as Griffin Rock Rescue's newest cadet. To rescue Professor Baranova and Frankie Greene from the clutches of Colonel Quarry, the TRANSFORMERS Rescue Bots need to change into their dinosaur modes, but that's not enough to bring their friends home safely. The reader becomes the hero in this interactive adventure by helping the TRANSFORMERS Rescue Bots train for their mission, outsmart Colonel Quarry, and give Blades the flight bot the push he needs to take flight!
"When we saw our first TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS app race to the #1 spot in Paid Book Apps in the App Store in over 40 countries, we knew there was a hunger for more Rescue Bots stories," said Shaan Kandawalla, Co-Founder of PlayDate Digital. "We're proud of what we've created in our second feature. This is a TRANSFORMERS Rescue Bots adventure that happens as you read it, and it will help early readers practice the basics of reading and word usage in a fun and captivating way."
"PlayDate Digital never disappoints when it comes to delivering a product that is engaging, educational, and relevant for our youngest TRANSFORMERS fans," said Jeff Popper, Vice President of Global Marketing for Hasbro, Inc. "Their Dino Island storybook app places the reader in the action, helping them not only practice their reading skills but problem solving as well."
This highly entertaining app is inspired by the hit animated series TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS, created by Hasbro Studios and currently airing in 130 countries and on Discovery Family Channel in the United States. Now, the adventures of the TRANSFORMERS Rescue Bots and their human partners can be part of every child's early reading experience in this thrilling new storybook app.

The Takara Tomy Q Transformers Return of the Mystery of Convoy series-themed event took place last 29 April at Decks in Odaiba, Tokyo Bay, and we have some photos from the event shared by Autobase Aichi! Check out below some of the merchandise on offer at the event, and the Q Transformers (which you can also find in our galleries) and Transformers Adventure display pieces on show - and find out more here.
Via the official Transformers Facebook page, we have a new image of the Robots in Disguise bird-like escaped Decepticon prisoner Filch in her robot mode - and a reminder to tune in to Cartoon Network this Saturday at 6.30 am EST to catch the new episode in the series! Check out more below.
There’s a new Decepticon preying on Crown City, and it’s up to Team Bumblebee to put an end to her pickpocketing. Watch the newest episode of Robots in Disguise this Saturday at 6:30 AM EST on Cartoon Network.
Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your upstanding host RodimusConvoy13, version two-point-oh Jon3.0, the very metal xRotorstormx, and dark horse Megatronus, who may or may not have ghost written this very post!
Today's a toy-centric Twincast, folks, and the crew is ready to tackle the rush of Transformers reveals coming your way. First we discuss the latest Botcon 2015 Cybertron's Most Wanted box set reveals: Battletrap, Shattered Glass Stepper, and... DOTM Megatron? The Twincast crew discusses Duocons, mirror universes, and the divisive first release of the Arms Microns Breakdown mold in the US, which is captured in a stunning gallery by our very own Seibertron. Which of these figures are we most excited about? Well, you'll just have to listen to find out.
It's over, Prime.
But wait, our friends at FunPub aren't done yet. We've once again entered the magical world of crossovers, with a few intriguing new entries on the G.I. Joe side of the ledger: Joe CON exclusive Old Snake and BAT (2 of 'em!) from the PRID deluxe Soundwave mold, and Transformers Collectors Club Marissa Faireborn with "Afterbreaker." Sit back as we discuss the merits of these rather slick crossovers, and the amazing galleries Seibertron photographed for your viewing pleasure.
It's a mug only a mother could love.
Our final exclusive of the evening is dark, evil, and has an oversized meat cleaver as a weapon. Oh, and did I mention he's a combiner? That's right, the Twincast discusses the eHobby exclusive Grand Scourge. Is the Twincast crew picking up this Prime wannabee, or is that gold just a wee, wee bit too much?
Ha, he said 'wee, wee'...
On to Takara, and their newlineup of figures coming off the assembly line: Transformers Adventure. What's the crew picking up in this assortment of original molds and redecos? What are we leaving behind? What other crazy things can we expect ? We've got our opinions, and folks, you're gonna hear them!
Excellent execution. Read that as you will.
Takara's Unite Warriors Menasor has been revealed, and these Stunticons' are considerably different from their Hasbro counterparts. In a word: G1 accurate decos. Salivating yet? Well, it's not all good news - the Twincast discusses the tradeoffs, so tune in!
But... but... where's Offroad?
Who's feeling the rage? Prototype images of MP-26 Road Rage (a retool of the upcoming MP-25 Tracks) have hit the interwebs, and the first female Masterpiece figure features a retooled head, curved thighs, and perhaps more. Bonus: in-package images of Hasbro's Masterpiece Bluestreak have been revealed... but we think you can guess which figure we're more excited about.
Next up: Combiner Wars. Join us for a freewheeling discussion on the Protectobots, Cyclonus, and a few other Combiner Wars figures that have shown up in the Phillipines. How are we liking the looks of these wave 3 figures, and how soon can we expect them, given some of us haven't even found wave 2 yet?
Just think of the repaint potential!
Finally, on to some non-toy talk - Robots in Disguise has progressed to episodes 3 & 4, and those crewmembers brave enough to watch have some encouragingthings to say about this latest animated adventure!
He's still got the touch!
Our penultimate topic for this broadcast: A listener question! Seibertron.com member Nemesis Maximo asks the crew about cleaning their dusty figures. How such an innocuous became a source for hilarity is beyond us...
We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording?
Took long enough!
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!
Not on the show to give your take? Probably not, so don't forget to keep the discussion going on the Seibertron.com Energon Pub Forums by simply replying to this post!
Got a question for the Twincast? We take all of them, we just don't take them all seriously! Leave a question in the Ask the Twincast thread and, if it makes the cut, it may get read and answered on the show.

BotCon has revealed the 5th and final exclusive figure from this year's BotCon 2015 "Cybertron's Most Wanted" box set. The last figure, Oilmaster "The Bounty Hunter", revives an abandoned Hasbro G1 concept of the "Double Pretender". The original Double Pretender Gorilla Pretender shell was first shown by Hasbro at BotCon 1996 alongside a Double Pretender Spider mold, the original G1 Unicron that was never released, and several other abandoned concepts that were never released at retail.
Apparently, the all-new Oilmaster Pretender mold was a joint venture between Fun Publications (the folks behind BotCon) and a company called "Boss Fight Studio". Here's a quote from their Facebook page regarding Oilmaster:
Boss Fight Studio is proud to have worked with Fun Publications on the 2015 Botcon convention exclusives - most especially the all new mech-gorilla Pretender shell for OILMASTER! This guy was a fun one!
To the best of our knowledge, the inner robots for Oilmaster were never made or never made it to the hard copy phase. To replace the inner robots, Oilmaster will utilize the Generations Swerve mold with his Mini-Con partner to simulate the two-robots-in-one-Pretender-shell concept.
Without further ado, please check out this exciting reveal that BotCon posted earlier this morning ...
