Our friends at Transfromers @ The Moonhave discovered three new trademark applications for Hasbro's Transformers. It also may seem from the beginning that none of these trademarks have anything to do with each other at this time.

The first of the three trademarks is Sparkplug, who was a human character in G1, then a Minicon in Armada, then a robot dog in Animated. Could an Animated Sparkplug toy be on the way? Much like other roleplay toys released in Unicron Trilogy?

The second seems to have Movie connotations, as it's Cyberglyphics. This could be the official designation for the weird markings on the Allspark Cube from the first movie and any other Cybertronian writings we may see in the sequel.

(News Administrator's note: The "Cyberglyphics" sounds very much like the special "hieroglyphics" that seem to appear on the Transformers characters, information which the Seibertron.com "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" insider broke read here.)

Lastly, Leader-1 is returning...but as what? He was first seen as the leader of the Guardians in Gobots and then he was made into a simple Minicon in Armada. Could we be looking at yet another repaint from the Classic's Seeker mold?

As more news regarding these trademarks develops, we will let you know!

After receiving my long awaited City Commander upgrade set designed by Fans Project, I couldn't wait to get it open and apply the new armor to my Classics Universe Ultra Magnus Figure. If you haven't seen this figure via Seibertron.com's extensive gallery, I strongly suggest you go take a look at this great addition.

Like most Transfans, I don't bother to look at directions when transforming my figures for the first time, but I wanted to see the booklet it came with and lo and behold, the instructions were in comic form! Here are images of this cool comic that came written in english:

Pages 11 & 12

You'll notice that the comic features the Powered Convoy armor for Classics/ Henkei Optimus Prime and not Ultra Magnus. Could this be a hint at a Powered Convoy Armor set? We've already seen the preorder for the Nemesis Powered Prime set go up, so it could happen. The back of the City Commander box hints at an ongoing series, so only time will tell.

Cybertron; a planet destroyed.

History calls it:
Heavy Metal War: First Generation.

You watched, as for millennia the Autobots and Decepticons fought a civil war that ended when Optimus Prime, making the ultimate sacrifice, hurled himself and his nemesis Megatron into the core of Cybertron, uniting it with the Matrix.

The shockwave crashed all transformer-descended life across the universe.
The Great War was ended, but the cost was huge.

This was ‘The Great Reset’


{L_IMAGE}

The time for the First Generation was over, thus began:
Heavy Metal War: The Organic Age

You saw Cybertron, devastated and drifting in space until struck by an alien asteroid.
From this, a new species of Transformer evolved; Efficient, smaller, just as powerful - maybe even deadlier. Heroic peacekeepers and warlike predators took the names Maximal and Predacon and war resumes for a new generation whilst the Autobots and Decepticons, reactivated as weapons of war, broke free to continue to their unending battle across Cybertron.

{L_IMAGE}

Now it is time for you to join that war.

Maximal, Autobot, Predacon, Decepticon; four factions fighting for Cybertron; to protect her; to bring her peace; to conquer her; to make her the seat of power in the universe. Will you choose to further Cybertron’s evolution and stop the archaic first generation tearing your planet apart or will you choose the fight to eradicate this new organic disease that has infected your home and decendants?

Chose your allegiance carefully:
{L_IMAGE}Maximals; Reluctantly fighting the Predacon’s to bring order to your world, drawn deeper into conflict by the warlike ways of the ancient Autobots and Decepticons that ravaged the planet so long ago. All must be stopped if order is to survive.

{L_IMAGE}Predacons; Fighting to seize control of Cybertron and purge the weak Maximal fools, to return the world it to its natural chaotic state ruled by us alone. If the ancients try to stand in our way, then they will be destroyed for none can oppose our might.

{L_IMAGE}{L_IMAGE} Or chose to follow the ancient path of the Autobot or Decepticon survivors, continue the great galactic war that raged across the universe, and purge the planet of all who would oppose you or threaten your freedom.

Defend or destroy, purge or protect?

Four Warring Factions
Heavy
Two Generations
Metal
One Planet
War

The strategy game that's more than meets the eye..

Seibertron.com Interview with Neil Kaplan

Transformers News: Seibertron.com Interview with Neil Kaplan

Seibertron's own Raymond T recently had a chance to interview Neil Kaplan, who provided the voices for Optimus Prime and Ro-Tor in the Transformers R.I.D series.

In the interview Kaplan discusses his past, present and future work as a professional voice actor in both the animated and video game industries, goes into depth about portraying Optimus Prime in R.I.D, his impressions on the new Animated series, his involvement with "Audio Theatre for the Troops" and his work on "I, of the Wolf".

The following are excerpts from Raymond T's full interview, to check out the full interview, please click here.

ST: Hey Neil! Thanks for doing this interview for Seibertron.com
NK: My pleasure. Anything for you and your readers, Ray.

ST: It has come to our attention that not everyone knows you or your work. So would you mind telling us who you are and what you've done before becoming a voice actor?
NK: I do voice work. These days most of my work is heard on video games and Anime. I am, proudly, best known for providing the voice of Optimus Prime on Transformers: Robots in Disguise. Other credits include Hawkmon on "Digimon", Diabolico on "Power Rangers: Lightspeed Rescue", "Justice League: Heroes", "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic", "Star Craft II" and many, many others.

ST: What were the important traits for you doing the voice of Optimus Prime? How much did you want to remain true to the old Peter Cullen character and how much did you want your Optimus Prime to be Neil Kaplan?
NK: Well, everything I did on Robots in Disguise was based on the fabulous Peter Cullen. His work had stuck in my head for 15 years, so using that as a touchstone, I knew I'd be best served.

"R.i.D." was voice directed by TWO different directors, one of whom (The affable Michael McConnohie) had worked with Peter on G1, back in the 1980s. So, he would direct me to slow it down, play it more like John Wayne.

The other director, (The fantastic Steve Kramer) was the MAIN director on the show and he wanted to play Prime more as an action hero. So, you can hear the difference between their episodes.

Fortunately the character had a face shield, so we didn't have lip flaps to worry about. That alone made it incredibly easy to adjust. Oddly, neither director knew of that situation until the season had basically wrapped.


ST:Was there anyone or anything in particular you based your Optimus Prime on?
NK: Yes, I based it on Peter Cullen and then on my desire to portray a HERO in the post- 9/11 world.

ST: How is your Optimus Prime different than Primes of the past and future?
NK: Well it was the first time Optimus Prime was a Fire Truck, so this version was a FULL TIME hero. There was no down time, even when not in robot mode. Our first episode aired on September 8, 2001. Just a few days later, giving voice to a fire truck changed for me in ways I dared not to even imagine.


ST: Do you miss working on Transformers?
NK: Of course I do. But life moves on.

Would I like to do a guest role on Animated? Sure I would. Would I like to work on the live action movie? Certainly. But, I'm an actor, that is what I do and want to do.

I still am a voice actor, but I have also moved on to writing and creating.


ST: Have you had the chance to (really) meet any of the actors from other Transformers shows?
NK: Yes. David Kaye and I had a lovely chat at Comic Con a few years back. Jack Angel has become a good friend and mentor. and of course, meeting Dick (Rodimus Prime) Gauthier was HUGE thrill for me as both a professional and as a fanboy.

ST: Who does the best Prime? You (RiD), Peter Cullen (G1), Gary Chalk (Armada), or David Kaye (Animated)?
NK: Again another EASY question. Hands down, it's Peter Cullen.

ST: What has been your impression with Transformers fans, now some 7 years after doing Transformers?
NK: I my self am a fan of many, MANY things. They are basically the same as any other type of fan. Most of them are very, VERY nice people. Many are quite loyal and passionate about this universe that they LOVE! I am just happy to have been a part of it, if only for a little while.

ST: Can you tell us what you have been up to, since Robots In Disguise?
NK: WOW a LOT. I have voiced quite a few video games; Spider-Man Battle for New York (I was Green Goblin/Norman Osbourne), Spider-Man3 (Kraven the Hunter), John Woo's Stranglehold with Chow Yun Fat (Ty Lok), Conan the Barbarian (Bone Cleaver), Justice League: Heroes (Gorilla Grodd), Night at the Museum 2 (Ivan the Terrible), S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Command and Conquer 3, Bee Movie Game.

I�ve also worked on various anime series including Naruto, Tokyo Pig and Zatch Bell, among others.

Mostly though, I have been working on writing and creating my own material. Many fans had the chance to check out the pilot for the educational/sketch/history show I created called The Way it Wasn't which has found a home and is under development. I have a GREEN game show I am meeting with producers on so keep your fingers crossed.

On another note, based partially on meeting a firefighter named Mr. Optimus Prime. (Yes, THAT gentleman!) I have created an organization called "Audio Theater for the Troops". A not for profit organization, we use donated scripts, studio time and actors talents to (one day) create a huge library of entertainment for the brave men and women in uniform serving us.

After getting this organization up and running, I would love to spearhead the movement to do the same for the troops for our friends and allies. (Great Britain and Australia leap immediately to mind)

"I don't know where to start. I don't know where it began. I don't know where I began. But what I do know is that the war rages on. Autobots battling the Decepticons across the Universe. We can't go home cause we have no home.

"This is how it began for me. This is how it begins for all of us."


After epochs of peace and serenity, Cybertron lays a barren husk, burnt from the never ending battle between the Autobots and the Decepticons.

{L_IMAGE}

Low on energon and upgraded with new weapons of destruction, the Decepticons lay their stake on any planet they choose while the Autobots fight to protect sentient life.

Lead by the fearless Megatron, the Decepticon Empire lays waste to any that stand in their way of conquest. The only thing keeping them from destroying the universe is Optimus Prime and his band of heroic Autobots.


{L_IMAGE}

Want to be a part of the never ending battle between the Heroic Autobots and Evil Decepticons? If given the choice, would you battle for the freedom of all sentient beings or fight your way to total conquest.
