The next Happy Meal theme in the US was said to be the Transformers: Bumblebee movie, at least for the "boys" toys. As it turns out, fellow Seibertronian xRotorstormx has found these Happy Meal toys today and it turns out these are not specifically for the Bumblebee movie. They are instead Cyberverse themed toys, the same previously found elsewhere in th world. However, for their distribution in th US, McDonalds chose to rebrand them under the Bumblebee movie.

Here are some images below alog with a video (mute it for the sake of your eardrums).

Enjoy!

Here is the line up
Optimus Prime
Bumblebee (in vehicle and robot mode)
Starscream
Windblade
Megatron
Grimlock
Shockwave

Thanks to the Official Transformers Trading Card Game Facebook page, and thanks to fellow Seibertron user, #Sideways# for passing along the information, we have the leader of the Seekers himself, Starscream.

Transformers News: Starscream revealed for the Official Transformers Trading Card Game

Also, as before, #Sideways# has also offered his thoughts on the reveals and their impact on the game.

#Sideways# wrote:The robot mode is rather lackluster compared to other robot modes for similar prices. But I'd like to bring your attention to the fact that he has Bold 2 built in to this mode. If you recall, Bold, Tough and Pierce all stack -- meaning, if you attached a Null Ray of Starscream to him, he would get both the +2 attack and the Bold 2 on the Null Ray, giving him a total of Bold 4 with a base attack of 6. This is good, but is it worth it compared to other options? More on this below.


Starscream Alt Mode

Transformers News: Starscream revealed for the Official Transformers Trading Card Game

#Sideways# wrote:The vehicle mode for this Starscream is the most interesting of the two. If you have three Planes in play when you flip to his vehicle mode, you get to put three (!!) damage on one of your opponent's characters. This is solid damage (a third of a small character's health), and you haven't even attacked yet. This allows Starscream to bolster other character's damage without attacking, himself. This ability is great, but we simply don't have the proper support for it yet to get a full idea of how powerful this archetype will be, and the biggest problem is the point values we have thus far.

The Plane support we've seen thus far has been titillating, but we can't have a full team of Planes -- at least not yet. See, we have yet to see Thundercracker, Skywarp or anyone else that could fill that point requirement. You see, this Starscream (if you noticed his Vehicle Mode below) has 11 points. That's fine, it's a common point value. But Slipstream -- often regarded as necessary for the archetype -- is eight points. That puts your point total to 19 out of 25, leaving only six points left over to work with.

The other big problem that this archetype has from my personal playtesting is a lack of draw power. When compared to Autobot Cars, we realize that card advantage is a very important thing. It allows you to draw into your Grenade Launchers, Force Fields and in this deck, your Bombing Runs.

Unfortunately, we just don't have that draw power yet. Maybe we will with the introduction of Skywarp or Thundercracker. Or maybe not. Not every archetype has to be broken, or even playable. As with all Trading Card Games, it's a simple fact of reality. C'est la vie.


Jaws of Steel.

Transformers News: Starscream revealed for the Official Transformers Trading Card Game

#Sideways# wrote:Finally, we have Jaws of Steel which make Dinobots frankly ridiculous. It is a Utility that gives Dinobots Bold 2, and mind you, Bold stacks. So, let's do the math real quick here.

Every character starts with two flips from the top of the deck, and the first time a white pip is flipped, you flip two more cards. You then attach a Power Sword to give yourself Bold 3. Then, you attach a Jaws of Steel to give yourself 2 more Bold, bringing it to Bold 5. Then you play a Dino-Chomp! and give yourself BOLD 10 and you flip ten more cards from the top of your deck. This, combined with the white pip and the first two gives you a total of 14(!?!?) cards out of your deck to deal more damage to your opponent!

I am utterly flabbergasted. Dino-Chomp alone can give you some big numbers. But all this combined... Well, let's just say that it makes me glad that Force Field exists.


We also have commentary from one of the card games designers.

The Transformers Trading Card Game FaceBook Page wrote:Check out a brand-bitin' new Battle Card reveal from our Design Lead, Ken Nagle!

"All the Dinobots can BITE, so I designed this signature Upgrade extra-sharp metal teeth Utility. I gave Jaws of Steel the Bold 2 ability and orange icon so that Dinobots love biting into foes with orange battle icons. CHOMP!"

"Are you having trouble dealing damage in your defensive deck? Energon Axe will give you a nice boost and will still do a bit of damage even if it’s blocked!"

"Grenade Launchers got you down? Is your friend attacking for 12 at a time? Do you have a surplus of d4s? Then I have the card for you! Force Field is here to keep your bots whole, hale, and (mostly) healthy! Be careful though: you never know when it might get scrapped!"


Secondly, Hasbro have produced another one of their Leaked from Cybertron series, and following in the footsteps of the Optimus Prime//Battlefield Legend edition, today's segment is all about Megatron//Living Weapon!

Courtesy of fellow Seibertron user, #Sideways#, we've been alerted to a hasbro press release for the imminent arrival of Metroplex in the Official Transformers Trading Card Game. This news comes to us via allspark.com. We've previously reported on the existence of the set here.

Transformers News: Press release for Metroplex theme deck for Official Transformers Trading Card Game


The press release is as follows:
Hasbro wrote:PAWTUCKET, RI AND RENTON, WA–SEPT. 7, 2018 – Hasbro, Inc., a global play and entertainment company, and Wizards of the Coast, a subsidiary of Hasbro and the publishers of the seminal trading card game Magic: The Gathering, provided more details today about the METROPLEX Deck, the first expansion for the TRANSFORMERS Trading Card Game.

“The character METROPLEX is a Titan – he converts into an entire city and towers over most of the other giants of the TRANSFORMERS universe. Keeping that in mind, we knew that METROPLEX deserved an even bigger card than the game’s standard oversized character cards,” said Drew Nolosco, TRANSFORMERS Trading Card Game Brand Manager. “The METROPLEX character card is 200mm tall – almost 8 inches. Whether in bot mode or alt mode, METROPLEX is one of the biggest TRANSFORMERS characters around, and now he has a suitably Titan-sized trading card.”

The METROPLEX Deck will see the AUTOBOT Titan enter the TRANSFORMERS Trading Card Game’s ranks for the first time, but he won’t be alone. During the game, players will be able to use the METROPLEX character card to deploy his three component bots: SCAMPER, SLAMMER, and SIX-GUN.

Inferno revealed for Wizards of the Coast's Official Transformers Trading Card Game

Following on from yesterday's Leaked from Cybertron article about Optimus Prime//Battlefield Legend, and thanks to fellow Seibertron user, #Sideways#, we now have another Autobot to reveal for the upcoming Official Transformers Trading Card Game.

That Autobot is Inferno (sporting his Universe appearance)!

Transformers News: Inferno revealed for Wizards of the Coast's Official Transformers Trading Card Game

Here is #Sideways# offering his take on the card and it's abilites.
#Sideways# wrote:This guy is a tank. He hits so hard, and he defends so much, that this guy is frankly idiotic to try to take down. You'd think that the best thing about him is his ability -- and you would be wrong. It's about every other little detail about this guy added up to make a formidable tank. With three base defense, this guy blocks most damage that he is dealt. Being Ranged, he can also make use of the Rapid Assault Armor Battle Card, giving him four defense and disrupting your opponent. He also has a base eight attack, which is one of the highest in the game along with the newly revealed Optimus Prime. But even more than that, with such a high defense, you can heal off the majority of damage you take with Team Up Tactics thanks to the fact that he is a Truck.

In fact, I built Shockwave / Inferno just last night and playtested it against Cars, which I thought would be an autowin. But I was wrong. The problem is this: His ability to return cards to your opponent's hand sounds great in theory, but when your opponent plays Turbo Boosters to untap their characters to attack you ad infinitum, you really don't want to put those cards back into your opponent's hand.

It's also a tall build, meaning you only have to characters to attack with, putting you at an even bigger disadvantage to Cars. You just end up losing because you attack a total of three times in a game. You can't even take advantage of Ready For Action. Shockwave as a partner is just not cutting it.

But on his own? Inferno can really bring the pain. Just imagine him with someone to supplement his healing, using their smaller attacks to set up knockouts before finishing them off with a huge attack from Inferno. The only problem is finding someone to fit that bill. Great potential, bad partners for the moment.


There's also been a new upgrade card revealed:

Bug Bomb

Transformers News: Inferno revealed for Wizards of the Coast's Official Transformers Trading Card Game

This upgrade can only be used on Insecticons, and the art features Bombshell tinkering around with what appears to be a small version of himself. Again #Sideways# shares his thoughts on this card and the ways it might be used once released.

#Sideways# wrote:This card is really, really good. Forget about the card being scrapped from your opponent's hand -- if they've been playing the game at all, they can afford it -- but the upgrade being scrapped and a card being drawn for you? That's fantastic.

But here's the thing. The reason why I'm so excited about this isn't that your opponent is punished for knocking out a bug on your side -- why I'm so excited is that you can use this on your turn. You can pop this thing with Skrapnel's insect mode, which knocks out one of your Insecticons to forcefully tap one of your opponent's characters. Meaning, you can choose a target and lock your opponent out of an attack with that character at the same time. But with this, though, you even get to disrupt your opponent and draw a card while you're at it.

Exactly six months ago, we posted an article on the price and release on the TC-09 Battle Command Optimus Prime. Well now, it's being reissued on Takara Tomy Mall!

Well, it isn't just a reissue, it includes two redecos of the the High Octane Bumblebee and the helicopter Drift. Drift is in his The Last Knight while Bumblebee is just in Bumblebee colors.

They both are redecos of Age of Extinction One-Steps, so they should be able to interact with the trailer and Optimus using the pin.

The only place to buy this currently is on Takara Tomy Mall, for ¥ 8,640 (roughly 77.78 USD). This will be released on October 27, 2018.

Thanks to fellow Seibertronian, Scottimus Prime, we have another confirmed sighting of the Jada Hollywood Rides Transformers Studio Series in the United States. It was spotted at Commack Target in Long Island, New York. These are non-transforming die cast scale vehicles and the ones seen here are a Bumblebee based on his The Last Knight appearance and two different Optimus Prime's. One is the same as in the previous sighting while the other is Optimus as he appeared in the 2007 movie and it's this particular toy that is being seen for the first time. This Peterbilt cab was first seen on the slide showing upcoming cars from Jada, which also includes a G1 Optimus cab that has yet to show up at retail.
