Lastmaximal on Allspark, who brought us the very first image of the 2016 Platinum Optimus vs Megatron set, finally also took pictures of both the cover of the box and the toys inside. He/she also precises that the toy was selling in the specialty store for about US $100, which is the estimated price point.
The cover is a re-enactment of the final battle between Optimus and Megatron in the 1986 Transformers film and the special stamp on the cover marks this as part of the commemoration of that film. This posits that both the Megatron and Optimus toys are supposed to reference this scene and those G1 decos, at least for their robot modes.
Hey loose bolts and assorted nuts - as Sunday rolls round for us all, it's time to take a look at what is going on in the Transtopia section of Seibertron.com. From customs to artwork, from fiction to comics, from paintjobs to modifications, we bring all of it together in one handy spot, for all of you to read, view, and comment as soon as you like it. Read on!
From the gang of writers over at the Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars animated series, we have an update on the status of the scripts and writing for the show: all scripts are in, and Eric Calderon, George Krstic and FJ DeSanto have been shooting some behind the scenes material, probably for both promotion and extra additions to the show! No news yet on the animation side of things, but we will update you as soon as we know.
The TRANSFORMERS are coming to Machinima. In an agreement between Machinima and Hasbro, the TRANSFORMERS world will be brought to life on the many2many programming service that kicks off right smack in the middle of The Combiner Wars. The series introduces new lore and all-new characters that, combined with the characters fans have known for decades, will bring the TRANSFORMERS storytelling in a new direction as the Machinima series will deliver raging action and signature humor to legions of TRANSFORMERS fans.
As we had heard in a recent interview, the next Paramount/Michael Bay Transformers live-action feature will see a 2017 release date - but thanks to My Entertainment World and fellow Seibertronian Survivefan23, we have confirmation of the beginning of the works (though not a definite location other than the Chicago stories): May 2016. Do you think there is enough time to make it all work? Let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!
Title: Transformers 5
Category: Feature Film

Through some strange channel, Google Books has an early full preview of the upcoming Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #49. While we have mirrored the images below for readers to enjoy, we would also like to offer a warning against some randomly generated further pages floating out there, and join in with writer James Roberts' words below.
I don't bang on about this often (enough), but please don't torrent MTMTE. Stealing instead of buying will kill it.

Fellow Seibertronians, a twitter post by Kusuhara (@ X_hara) reveals a Metalhawk resin kit being offered in limited numbers at Winter Wonderfest 2016. Since this is a Wonderfest figure, it is fully licensed - but only when sold at the Wonderfest.
Take a look at the pictures below and let us know what you think of this figure in the comments below.
Here he is with last years Minerva and Generations Go Shooter
If any of you are thinking of double dipping on Combiner Wars Superion with the G2 version, Seibertron now has a full gallery ready of all six individual members and the combined form in this glorious deco.
Please rest assured that this G2 Slingshot won't break like the old one did. For those who don't know, the original G2 Slingshot suffered from heavy breakage with minimal wear due to the fragile gold tinted plastic he was made of, referred to as Gold Plastic Syndrome (GPS). That is why you will find no video review of the original G2 slingshot being transformed. Actually, I take that back because Seibertron has something special for you all. Below you will find an actual clip of Seibertron himself transforming G2 Slingshot without it crumbling to dust (which I believe was one of Hercule's 12 labours). Having this nice whole Slingshot also lets us bring you some full comparison pics between the new Combiner Wars G2 Superion and the original G2 Superion, something else you probably won't ever come across. You can get to the galleries of any character by clicking the pictures where you will also find comparison pictures to the original G2 version of every character (yes, even G2 Slingshot). If any of you are curious, Seibertron even has full galleries of the original G2 toys.
Fellow Seibertronians, hot on the heels of the Meet the Autobots video - which featured clips from Transformers RID Season2 - we get our first teaser trailer for season 2. Although, it can only be watched on YouTube, we also get an interesting post on Kirk Van Wormer's Twitter account that seems to simultaneously announce and confirm a season 4 of RID, despite there being no news of a season 3 at this point - we have screencapped the message below, in case of changes from on high.
Are you excited for season 2 of RID? Even more so for another 2 after that? Check out the trailer, and leave your thoughts on this announcement in the comments below.
