Just in from Weibo.com we have three images of their new Transformers G1 art in puzzle form. These appear to be reasonably sized, likely in the 500-1000 piece range, and feature two separate art pieces from the amazing G1 box art catalogue. The first is the iconic picture of Optimus Prime in the foreground being charged by a transforming Starscream, and the second is the classic image of Trypticon squaring off against his arch rival Metroplex in space surrounded by a flurry of Autobots and Decepticons! If anyone is a puzzler like my Conjunx Puzzlura and myself you'll be sure to pick these up.


And while we're on the subject of G1 art we have to mention fellow Autobot and classic G1 artist Matt Watt's kickstarter for his G1 wall art that, you guessed it, transforms into a coffee table. Sometimes great ideas come together like chocolate and peanut butter, WiFi and the internet, or wall art and coffee tables. If you haven't taken a gander at Mr. Watt's kickstarter it's worth it.


As always enjoy the images and share your views with the Seibertron crew!

Viz Media has announced on Twitter and Facebook plans to release Transformers: A Visual History, an art book, in Fall 2019. While details are scarce they do give a short description.

TRANSFORMERS: A Visual History, out Fall 2019. This new art book is the most comprehensive compilation of Transformers artwork ever assembled featuring rare and iconic imagery pulled from Hasbro’s archives.

The announcement was accompanied by a single image of live action movie Optimus Prime's head.

If you aren't familiar with Viz Media they're best known for localizing Japanese anime, manga, and art books into English. This will be their first Transformers project. Pure speculation here, but Japan does have The Art of the Transformers book coming from Parco in April, if these aren't the same books then they'll likely share many assets making for a nice alternative.

Thanks to fellow Seibertronian Nexus Knight for the heads up! Are you excited about the sudden options in Transformers art books this year or are books just not your thing? Sound off in the Energon Pub forums below and let us know!

Hero-X has dumped a ton of new information on their Twitter regarding how they plan to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the Transformers!

Up first, they have announced they are re-releasing the Transformers Generations Deluxe book, now titled Transformers Generations Deluxe The Rebirth 35th Anniversary Version. This book was last released about 5 years ago, and is an item that is highly sought after by many collectors. The book was originally released in 2001 and features a large collection of both images and information regarding toys from Generation 1, Generation 2, Machine Wars, Japanese exclusives, and European exclusives. There is also a bunch of bonus content related to prototypes, illustrations, and unused concepts. This book will be available in mid-March, and will be 2800 yen plus tax, though no order links are yet active.

Up next, we have a re-release of the Japanese version of Transformers Classics Volume 1, which has been renamed "Encounter" after a Publisher change. This book will be available at the same time as the Generations Deluxe book in mid-March for 2560 yen plus tax. It collects Transformers #1-4.

Lastly, we have a prototype shirt that Hero X will be releasing for the 35th Anniversary! This shirt features an awesome shot of Unicron's head, done up by Japanese artist Yuki Ohshima. While we have no link or price for this shirt yet, it appears to also be a limited release to certain Japanese stores.

Check out the images of the books and shirts below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

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!
