The Transformers facebook page has posted a couple of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron images as part of their Cyber Monday campaign. Check out the Sea of Rust below. Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is scheduled to release this Fall.

This Cyber Monday, get an exclusive first look at the barren desert called the Sea of Rust from upcoming video game Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. It is a harsh and desolate wasteland full of the fallen corpses of an ancient Cybertronian civilization. However, deep within these ruins lies a vital lifeline, one of the last remaining reservoirs of Energon that could be used to power the Autobots’ final exodus…

DevastaTTor was in attendence at the Hasbro/Takara Tomy brand panel and was able to give us a recap as well as a portion of the Q & A session at the end.

DevastaTTor wrote:Here's my recap of today's (March 11th) panel at Cybertron Con. Pretty long but I wanted to make sure I covered everything.

Today I attended day 1 of Cybertron Con in Singapore. I attended the Hasbro/Takara Tomy Brand Development and Products panel discussion. Here are my notes-I apologize that they’re a little spotty: was hard to write and shoot pictures at the same time.

4. Interestingly, during the Q&A session, one fan asked if they’d be releasing a more game accurate colored version of Bruticus. Jerry said that they’re actually still working on the final colors for the initial release-are aware of fan comments online.


End of Main Part of Presentation, on to Cybertron Con 2012 exclusive reveals.

• Big surprise: previewed 2013 Generations release of Fall of Cybertron Starscream. See news post for more.

Q&A Session
Didn’t get notes on all of the questions but here are a few that stood out-questions and answers are paraphrased below.

1. Q: Are you planning on releasing any additional Leader class figures for the DOTM movie line?

A: No, but we missed an opportunity to produce a Leader Shockwave. Underestimate the importance of the figure in the movie.

2. (This one was a cringe-worthy moment) Q: Third party toy makers are producing some amazing toys. Any plans to collaborate with one to produce what could be the most incredible Transformer ever?

A: No. We do not condone what they do and would never work with them.

3. Q: Any plans for a release of a Generations Fall of Cybertron Grimlock?

A: Stay tuned…

4. Q: What other Generations figures are in the pipeline right now?

A: Right now, big focus is Fall of Cybertron figures-nothing else at this time but more to come afterward.

5. Q: Any plans for Dino from Dark of the Moon.

A: No, Ferrari would allow the license for it.

6. Q: Any plans for a Beast Wars or Victory revival (actually two questions)?

A: They’re working on a lot of new ideas that will extend show into new areas while bringing back original concepts from the past.

7. Q: What’s the working title for Transformers 4?

A: Just calling it Next Transformers movie for now.

8. Q: (To Yoke-san) Looking back, what is your favorite Transformer?

A: (disappoint most fans) currently likes the Prime deluxe Vehicon. (whatever)

9. Q: Any plans to produce the other Dreads from Dark of the Moon?

A: No, movie line is over mostly over for now.

End of Presentation

Will add, one touching moment during the Q&A session, one fan was nearly moved to tear with addressing Yoke-san.

Oh yes, who's ready for a new line up of Seekers? I know I am. Thanks to News Crew member DevastaTTor, We have our first look at Transformers Generations Deluxe, Fall of Cybertron Starscream! This guy heavily resembles his War for Cybertron appearance. The indication is that he will be released Spring 2013. DevastaTTor adds:
Before a huge crowd for the Hasbro/Takara Tomy Brand Development and Product Panel Discussion, Hasbro revealed the first Generations figure to be released as part of wave 1 in 2013: deluxe class Starscream.

Transformers Global Brand Director, Jerry Jiovin, also teased the crowed a little with the potential for the release of FOC Grimlock. When asked by a member of the crowd if we'd see him in the same wave, he sheepishly grinned and answered " Stay tuned..."

Stepping into the interactive zone, the KRE-O toy, Bumblebee, would appear, standing beside them. Taking it one step further, Bumblebee will then interact with them - as if they are actually in a 'parallel world.' Apart from 'dancing' with the audience, up on the screen, Bumblebee will even give participants a 'high five' before transforming into a sports car and driving away.

Other special events and exhibits will include:
  • A 22-foot tall Optimus Prime character statue, one of the largest TRANSFORMERS statues ever;
  • Three-dimensional action figure dioramas capturing scenes from popular TRANSFORMERS entertainment including the blockbuster movies;
  • National 'Fastest Fingers First' Competition 2012, testing convention goers' skills at transforming toy figures from "robot" to "vehicle" mode and back to 'robot' mode or viz-a-viz.

Screwattack have posted an interview Transformers: Fall of Cybertron game director Matt Tieger. Most of the information covered in the interview has already been presented in the flurry of recent Transformers: FOC coverage, but there are a few previously unseen screen captures. Check the mirrored images out below, the interview can be found by clicking here.

Destructoid has also posted a Transformers: FOC preview article. Again, most of the info has been covered before, but the article can be found here.

I saw a segment where Grimlock had set out to save his captured dino buddy Snarl. Once he got his meter up to transform, he took on waves of Insecticons, smashing them to bits with tails and claws, and then breathing fire on them to make sure they were dead. You'd have to be dead inside to not want to play as Grimlock after seeing this.

With the release date of the highly anticipated Transformers Fall of Cybertron quickly approaching, several videos have been posted that cover a full range of features, gameplay and insight. These video's come from multiple sources in the gaming community and have been collected here in one place for your viewing pleasure!

First is an interview with game director Matt Tieger by Machininma:

Second is from

Attached to this video is an informative article that provides even more details regarding the loss of Co-op play.

Next is an article from This includes more gameplay of Bruticus and others and features an interesting side article regarding the fate of the Dinobots:

The solution? It turns out these Cybteron games take place about 70 million years ago. When Decepticon Shockwave goes looking for some new transformation forms for a bunch of kickass robots, he happened to get a glimpse of prehistoric earth and the beasts that roamed the planet then. Tieger cautions us not to get too technical about which dinos were on the Earth then; just go with it. It gets us Grimlock in this game, a double-height robot who only can do melee attacks but turns into a marauding mechanical T-Rex (he looks very fun to play as). It also gets us other Dinobots, such as Snarl, Swoop and Sludge, all of whom I caught glimpses of in a level that started players as Starscream and transitioned into a very cool Grimlock rampage.

We will continue to update this article with any Fall of Cybertron videos that are revealed!

Gamesradar has posted an article titled 15 things you need to know about Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. The 15 "need to know" points are listed below, but the article expands on each of them. Click here to read the article over on gamesradar. A couple of the more interesting points, Vortex can also transform into a jet and Gregg Berger will be voicing Grimlock!

  1. The plot begins immediately after War for Cybertron
  2. It has one campaign with different characters
  3. At least one Transformer has more than two forms
  4. Every Transformer has a unique ability
  5. Like Jazz's a grappling hook...
  6. Or Optimus Prime's control of the massive Metroplex...
  7. Or the Combaticons' ability to turn into Bruticus...
  8. Grimlock is in the game
  9. ...and he can transform into a fire-breathing robotic T-Rex
  10. You can buy and upgrade gear
  11. Cybertron is no longer flat
  12. Nolan North voices an archeologist
  13. There's more ammo this time
  14. There's no campaign co-op
  15. Character creation is insane
