The April cover of the Japanese magazine “TV Magazine” has the full reveal of an exclusive redeco of the Energon Igniters Speed Series Bumblebee. We got the first glimpse of this figure a month ago. “Energon Charge” Bumblebee will be available through an offer with the magazine, with the figure now having all its yellow plastic cast in a clear yellow. We have mirrored the magazine cover below and the magazine is scheduled for release on the 15th April and can be ordered via the Japanese Amazon site here, which is where the image came from.
Has this exclusive got enough value to order a ¥1,058 magazine (approx. $10.00USD) plus post or is it simply too obscure or frivolous to bother with? Let us know in the comments section below here on Seibertron.com!
Reduce, reuse, and recycle, yo! Why you ask, you may ask. Well, we have news of a new book! The Transformers Give Your Old Stuff The Reboot! or as seen on the cover, Transformers Recycle It! Written by Devra Newberger Scollon (and photographed by Anthony Nex), the book itself appears to be a guide book on how you can use junk like cardboard or... Kool Aid (you'll see) and turn it into working robots, furniture, and more! It also includes a kit to build a 3D Transformers character (presumably out of cardboard or thick paper).
Bumblebee and his team of Autobots show kids how to TRANSFORM all their old junk into cool, new swag! They’ll discover ways to recycle and repurpose everything from old toys to cereal boxes, and transform them into working robots, go-carts, even sturdy, usable furniture for their room! There’s even a fun way to TRANSFORM expired Kool-Aid into paint! Front and back gatefolds include punch out and assemble 3D Transformers!
You can see the Amazon listing here or click the image of the cover below. The cover itself below depicts the evergreen design of Bumblebee used in Cyberverse. The book itself is Paperback and is set to start shipping out on March 29th, 2019. You can pre-order it now for $12.99.

Thanks to Seibertronian cyberpath, we have our first look at the upcoming Transformers Generations 2019 book! The book, which has become a regular look at Transformers concept art and toy art, is now up for Pre-Order at Amazon Japan for 3100 Yen, or approximately $27 in USD. The book cover is not shown in the Pre-Order, but does come to us from @ao_zooora on Twitter[/url]. The new cover features a ton of characters based on their Power of the Primes toys, as Cyberpath notes below, along with an Optimus Prime that appears to be based on his new upcoming Masterpiece toy. All of these have been drawn in beautiful G1-esque retro artwork.
Check out the cover below, and head on over to Amazon Japan to place your Pre-Order! The book is due December 10 of this year.
Featuring the titan-class Predaking; the PotP Dinobots, Terrorcons & Rodimus Prime, among others. And an Optimus Prime with transformation seams consistent with those of the upcoming 35th Annv. Masterpiece.
With the Transformers Bumblebee movie coming in just one month (to the day), the marketting campaign is picking up some major steam. Bumblebee, in his film look, is appearing in as many places as possible. He was part of the Toronto Santa Claus parade in both his robot and car mode on a float.
Bumblebee will also be part of next month's loot crate along with merchandize from Dungeons and Dragons, Fallout and more (all in th same crate).
In more car related news, Bumblebee is part of Gamestop's advertizing on Christopher Bell's NASCAR racecar. He even included a video of the new adverts being applied to the car which you can see here.
Over on online retailer Amazon.com, we have three new listings for Transformers Bumblebee Movie related products, and we're looking at a younger audience still with the Junior Novel (in both book and audio book formats) plus a Transformers: Bumblebee Reader!
The latter in particular is a level 2 passport to reading young book, and sports the title A Car for Charlie - meaning you can have the minibots in your life get ready for the movie, if you choose to share it with them, read up on the story before heading to the cinema (as the book is out in November, which also means it may contain spoilers for the movie itself!). Check out the listings below.

Sabrblade has informed us of new scans showing the Transformers Adventure comic that came in the Hero-X Transformers Generations book. Transformers Adventure was the Japanese version of the latest Robots in Disguise line and included characters we didn't get in the western version of the line Runamuck, Runabout, Lockdown, Overdrive, Black Convoy and many others.
Sabrblade wrote:Courtesy of Allspark.com user Creedence, here are scans of the Adventure manga story that was published by Hero-X in the Transformers Generations 2015 book (translation of the story's title still pending as of this typing).
It features appearances of many toy-only characters from the Adventure toyline (including the ones exclusive to Hero-X) who did not appear in the RID 2015 cartoon (but which does include a couple of characters from the previous Prime cartoon).
Transformers fans and those who are trying to encourage young readers may be interested to know that there are three new book listings on amazon. They are all coming out in November of this year, about a month before Bumblebee: The Movie will be showing in theaters. We will share with you the listings so that you will know what they are like.

TRANSFORMERS ORIGINAL GRAPHIC NOVEL STARRING BUMBLEBEE ARRIVES FALL 2018
An All-New, All-'80s Bumblebee Adventure From IDW Publishing
San Diego, CA (February 22, 2018) – IDW Publishing is thrilled to announce that in 2018 Bumblebee from the TRANSFORMERS franchise will star in his very own original graphic novel! The perfect jumping on point for the next generation of TRANSFORMERS fans, Transformers: Bumblebee – Win If You Dare gives readers the opportunity to join in the fan-favorite character’s adventures. Life can feel rough when you aren't the fastest or the tallest Autobot, but Bumblebee is up to the task!
When his best friend is hurt, Bumblebee takes it upon himself to finish the mission—and prove his worth to his fellow Autobots along the way. Things get tense as Bumblebee and a new human friend infiltrate a series of incredible races, hunting down dangerous foes and a devastating secret. It's an exciting new, action-packed '80s adventure! X-Men '92 co-writers Chad Bowers and Chris Sims along with artist Marcelo Ferreira (Back to the Future, Transformers: Windblade) have crafted a nostalgia-tinged, yet equally fresh standalone story.
"The exciting thing about this book is that it really hits all the highs of TRANSFORMERS for fans new and old," said IDW Associate Editor, David Mariotte. "It has action, adventure, racing and robots, but it also has a lot of heart and humor that comes through in this simultaneously retro and very modern package."
“This story is just a ton of fun,” said Michael Kelly, head of publishing at Hasbro. “Bumblebee is the ultimate underdog, and everyone loves an underdog. IDW has done a fantastic job bringing this iconic character to life for a new generation of fans.”
This new OGN will be available in comic shops and book stores September 11, 2018 for $9.99. It is available for pre-order now using ISBN: 978-1-68405-227-1.

Throughout the franchise’s more than 30 years of history, thousands of unique TRANSFORMERS robots have been introduced through toy lines, multiple animated TV series have debuted, and animated and live-action films have thrilled audiences
Diego Valdez of the A.C.T.A. Asociación Cultural Transformers Argentina facebook group has posted a few images of a new kid's activity book. This appears to be part of what has been nicknamed the Transformers 'Evergreen' line which uses the same art style as the Transformers Authentics toy line. We have included some images of the contents of the book so you can get an idea of what some of the puzzles and games are like. The book itself was discovered in Buenos Aires, Argentina for 69.90 Argentinian Pesos (About $3.60 USD with the current exchange rates). It was manufactured by Vertice Editorial who's products can be found in Chile and Uruguay also.
It's only been a handful of days since the new Transformers Generations 2018 book was released, and already we have a full video breakdown of it! The video, while in Chinese, shows off the catalogue in its entirety very nicely, and gives us some good looks at the latest and greatest toys from Hasbro and Takara! Almost (if not) every figure from the past few months is shown to some degree in the book, including Grand Maximus, Masterpiece Dinobot and Sunstreaker, and Legends Greatshot! The book also features some neat behind the scenes shots of the design process of toys like Titan Class Trypticon, Six Shot, and Overlord! We've taken some screenshots of the video, but they only show a fraction of the content included, so we recommend watching the nearly feature-length tour through the book embedded directly below!
