Similar to the TFSource collector interview series, run by fellow Transformers fan Maz (of Square One fame), the official Hasbro Australia YouTube channel have started a new video series - limited to two clips so far - on the more visible members of the Australian collector community!
The first two clips, embedded below for your viewing convenience, feature the owner and admin of OzFormers Griffin - a regular source of news and sightings from Down Under - and Kelvin / Goktimus Prime, also frequently featured in our news cycle, especially for video reviews. Check them both out below, and let us know what you think of this new initiative from Hasbro Australia!

According to main cast member of the human side of Transformers Bumblebee Movie, due out in cinemas worldwide from this December, there may be more than just her acting skills at play in the sixth live action instalment in the Paramount series (though perhaps the start of a new series, after all).
Take it with as much salt as you want, as it's a very vague tweet, but in announcing her hosting duties for the MTV Europe Music Awards in Bilbao, Spain, taking place on 4th November, she also hinted at performing a new song from her other life as a successful pop artist. And via a screenshot - via TFW2005 user Transformers Database - of a now deleted tweet from Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic fame, there may be even more to the piece than hinted at. Join the speculation in the Energon Pub!
I am SO excited to announce that I will be HOSTING the 2018 MTV EMA’s in Bilbao!!! I might just have to perform a new song while I’m there. I can’t wait my loves! #MTVEMA @mtvema

The end is nigh for the current IDW Transformers continuity, with Optimus Prime issue #25 being the last one released (as long as current scheduling holds), and now, thanks to Transformers Artist Andrew Griffith and his Twitter and Facebook accounts, we've been given a look at a variant cover for this issue.
Here is what the artist has said about his work, as posted to his facebook account.
Andrew Griffith wrote:My cover for #Optimus Prime 25 by John Barber, Kei Zama & Josh Burcham from IDW Publishing
The final issue! Decided to do a cover that would try to sum up some of the most pivotal characters and arcs going all the way back to what John I started #RID1.
The countdown is on for this final swan song of the IDW Transformers continuity. What do you think of Andrew's work with this cover? Let us know in the comments and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews.
Thanks to a Tweet from the man himself, and thanks to several notifications from Seibertron.com members, we have word that David Sobolov, the voice of Beast Wars Badass Depthcharge and Transformers: Prime's mad scientist and Predacon clone creator Shockwave, will be voicing a Transformer in the upcoming Bumblebee Movie! The tweet comes from David Sobolov himself, with express approval from Paramount themselves, though he does not mention which Transformer he will voice. With is voice acting career already showing he can voice some great characters with a nice mix of cynicism, sarcasm, intelligence, and scowling, he is sure to impress in the upcoming movie, whatever his role may be.
You can check out his tweet quoted below, and sound off and speculate in the comments section below on just who Sobolov will be voicing in the movie!
