A Delightful Tedium- Derrick Wyatt of Transformers Animated mastermind fame, updated his blog 'A Delightful Tedium' with an April Fool's Day joke of sorts.

He has posted a cityscape with many characters on it in their TF Animated incarnations, but only some of them will actually appear in Season 3. So which ones will be in this new season? Derrick's not telling!

"I didn't just want to do the normal "lulz! fooled ya" type April Fools joke this year, so I'm trying something a little different. The Cybertron cityscape you see before you is populated with Autobots and Decepticons. Now, some of these bots are actually in Transformers Animated season 3, and that's no joke. But, of course, some of them are not.

Pictured here are:
Rodimus Prime
Sky Garry
Grandus
Animated Personality Vangelus
Huffer
Pipes
Botanica
Tap-Out
Zaur
Slapper
Sundor
Flip-Sides
Target Exclusive (True Colors) Shockwave

Have fun guessing! And don't bother asking me, 'cuz I'm not saying."


So who's in and who's out? Discuss below. You can see the original post here.

Transformers Live Action Movie Blog- This news is coming across to us from multiple sources Twitter, Blink-182's website, and the TFLAMB... Travis Barker of Blink-182 appears to be working on a track for the Transformers Revenge of the Fallen movie. Information is very vague at this time, and details are... well...minimal.

Travis Barker-
"Listening to a new version of a track I'm playing on for Busta Rhymes for the Transformers 2 soundtrack. S*** is jammin'."


Truth or fiction? Soundtrack, or something else? Discuss below.

snakasblog.com- According to a translation of Snakas' blog, which describes the very latest issue of Figure Oh (Figure King) NO. 134, there is a possible end to the Henkei line hinted at.

This issue, according to Snakas, highlights the Takara-Tomy offerings of the Transformers Revenge of the Fallen line, as well as, a feature on Transformers history in a 25 years section dedicated to 1991-1992 this time. The magazine also mentions/shows the newest and supposedly last Henkei releases, Smokescreen and Red Alert.

You can view the translated version of Snakas blog here, or for those with the ability, you can read the original in Japanese here.

Snakas writings mention an end to the Henkei series, with nothing new in the works. Could it be? Will there be more store or show exclusives, or is the line done after the release of the final two?

Thanks to the Allspark for help in deciphering the translation, and providing the link.

Firstly, it should be noted that this remains solidly in the RUMOURS section, until IDW Publishing can confirm or deny it.

Comic Book resources have published an interview with comic writer and Illustrator (and owner of a brilliant name) Zander Cannon.

Whilst mostly dealing with Zander's work with Alan Moore on "Top Ten", as well as some of his other works including "The Replacement God" and "Bone Sharps, Cowboys, and Thunder Lizards", there is also a brief mention of Zander working an upcoming Transformers series for IDW Publishing:

I'm writing a Bumblebee miniseries that spins off of a new semi-reboot of the Transformers continuity at IDW. I'm only in the process now of writing a proposal, so I can't say any more.

Bumblebee Mini-series?
Semi Reboot?

What does it all mean?

Stay tuned to Seibertron.com, as we will keep you up to date with any further developments regarding this series.

After the report earlier that DreamWork has locked the releasedate for the third installment of the Transformers Movies at July 1st 2011, Michael Bay has posted on his forum that 2011 was not the date he had imagined. The following comment was taken directly from Bay's forum.

"I said I was taking off a year from Transformers. Paramount made a mistake in dating Transformers 3 - they asked me on the phone - I said yes to July 4 - but for 2012 - whoops! Not 2011!!! That would mean I would have to start prep in September. No way. My brain needs a break from fighting robots.

TVShowsOnDVD.com has posted an interesting piece of news regarding the re-release of the first season of the original Generation 1 cartoon. According to sources, a Wal-Mart.com listing mentions that the first season, including the three episode "More Than Meets The Eye" pilot, is to be released by Vivendi Entertainment, who, according to the news posted, have been pursuing the license.

It should be stressed, however, that this information is highly speculative, especially given that the news contains no information from Vivendi Entertainment themselves that it is true. In the meantime, you can view the information, along with preliminary box art, here.

A journalist for the Australian paper- The Advertiser, Sean Fewster tips us on a returning voice actor for the next movie that completely refutes one Michael Bay's original statements about the movie sequel.

One of Sean's co-workers at the paper, film writer Andrew Fenton interviewed actor Hugo Weaving:

"Mega Secret
By Andrew Fenton
Film Writer, The Advertiser

In town to promote his rather excellent new Aussie film, "Last Ride", Hugo Weaving let slip he'll be returning as the voice of Megatron in "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen".

Fans no doubt will recall that when we last saw Megatron, Sam (Shia LaBeouf) had rammed the All Spark cube into his chest, thereby destroying him. Despite this certain death, rumours have been circulating the villain was going to make a comeback. Director Michael Bay went so far as to flatly deny the rumour, telling Empire: "He's not in the movie".

Turns out Bay was fibbing. "I've already done it," Weaving says, adding Bay had told him to keep the news hush-hush. "He's over in LA and we were working on the video split sort of thing and I had this strange conversation where he seemed to imply it was all a big secret. So there you go - I've given you the secret scoop."

So how is Megatron resurrected? Weaving is coy about revealling too much, but does give a tiny hint.

"I think in the last one, doesn't Optimus Prime pick up a little bit of, a shard of the cube, or the thing that's left, and he takes it with him. Maybe there's something there... but I don't know," he laughs.

We'll find out on June 25, the film's Australian release."


For those hoping for the return of Generation One Megatron voice actor Frank Welker to take the role if the big bad in the sequel, well it appears you are out of luck. What other voice actors from the first film will be making a return? Stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more revenge news as it happens.

Thanks to Sean, and Andrew for this piece of Revenge of the Fallen news.

RUMOR: Transformers Animated toy line... cancelled?

Rumors of the current status of the Transformers Animated cartoon have been flying around the net like wildfire, and as we reported here, the Goldfire Grimlock and Hydro Dive Bumblebee voyagers have been cancelled. Now there’s rumors that the entire Transformers Animated toy line may be seeing it’s last days at retail.

TFVanguard, a poster at TFArchive said this:

Both the local Targets and local Wal*Marts (Colorado Springs, CO) have marked the Transformers: Animated line as canceled and won't be stocking up any new figures for it past what has already shipped. That means that the March/April waves won't be showing up at all in these stores.

Oddly, Universe seems to be continuing even as the seasonal reset makes a ton of room for the Revenge figures beginning to surface.

Unfortunately, the Hasbro rep checking the Wal*Mart aisles didn't really know what to make of the changes, as she knew about upcoming figures, but also confirmed that retailers were 'dumping' the Animated line.


This would also make it seem that retailers have more interest in the upcoming Transformers Revenge of The Fallen toy line, and do not wish to have old stock lingering on shelves when it comes out.

Additionally, Wal*Mart.com has their exclusive Transformers Animated value sets along with more Transformers Animated products currently on clearance at ridiculous mark downs. Coincidence? It would seem unlikely.

Is Transformers Animated over, and what is the fate of the Animated Arcee figure shown at Toy Fair? Discuss this and more in The Energon Pub forums.

TFW2005- Veteran Transformers fan Kickback is reporting on TFW2005 that the Target Animated Exclusive Shockwave (repainted in G1 colors) with Activator Bumblebee, and Voyager Sunstorm (repaint of Starscream) with Activator Ratchet are set for release on March 22nd.

It's good to keep this in mind though, some stores release these toys early, especially if you can give them the DCPI. As soon as we have the number to share, we will spread the word so our community members can hit their local Target stores to get these very interesting exclusives.
