Here's a fun fact. Did you know that there were 93 Toysrus stores in Germany, Austria and Switzerland combined? That's quite a bit of stores for such a small landmass. Other fun fact, all these toys are now owned by Ireland's very own toy chain Smyth's Toys. That's right, the family owned chain which only had 110 stores yesterday will now add these 93 to their tally of owned stores. They also inherit 4 Toysrus websites and will take on all current staff and management.

This is great news since that means it is business as usual for fans, and more importantly Toysrus employees, in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. It also brings Toysrus back to its routes of being a family entreprise.

Here is what Smyth's Toys co-founder Tony Smyth said about the deal: “We are convinced that multi-channel toy retailing will develop positively and that we can successfully introduce and expand our brand in Europe.”

This news was reported by Reuters and sent our way thanks westjames/notirish.

The third and final installment of Machinima's Prime Wars Trilogy of cartoons, Power of the Primes. is just a few short days away. Meaning, of course, we're seeing more and more promotional material across the internet for it. Today's no different as we have (at least part of) a new poster for the series from over on the Machinima Instagram page. The poster is being, well, posted regularly in increments, meaning we've only seen a few sections of it, but the rest will probably be revealed by the premiere date.
Even though we've only seen a fraction of the poster, it still offers some exciting new glimpses into the show we haven't seen before, showing off our first look at the Dinobots and Predaking! Check out the pieces of the poster we have currently, and then check back when the series premieres for our official review!

We know that the current IDW Publishing Transformers universe (including the various Hasbro branches now part of the same narrative world) will be coming to an end as of Unicron: Darkest Hour #6 - which will coincide with the conclusion of both current ongoing series Optimus Prime and Lost Light, too. The writer of the latter, James Roberts, part of the current identity of the IDW Transformersverse (Phase 2, in any case) with John Barber and Mairghread Scott, has casually thrown out on his Twitter account that his stay with Transformers will also be taking a break, as there are no plans as of yet to be involved with the reboot.

Several fans have been following Roberts' work thus far, and appreciated what More Than Meets the Eye and Lost Light have done for the Transformers franchise, and after also losing (as far as we know) Mairghread Scott, this is a fairly big factor going forward after September. Join the discussion in the Energon Pub, and let us know your thoughts on the news!

Haha! This has never happened before: “Are you the Transformers guy?” in the local Waitrose. Not for much longer, mate.

Me and Transformers are taking a break after LL#25.

Found on Weibo, and courtesy of user 强值装甲玩具铺, we have news of a translation into Chinese of the IDW Publishing Beast Wars comics series - including The Gathering, The Ascending, and the Beast Wars Sourcebook, effectively translating the Omnibus version of the collection - at the hands of writer Simon Furman, artists Don Figueroa, Guido Guidi, Josh Burcham, assistant writer Ben Yee, and a slew of artists working on the Sourcebook.

The translation seems to be completed already, and can be purchased from Taobao - as this listing appears to also be the original source of the post - as distributed by DMan for 165 Yuan (approx 27 USD at the time of writing).

MP 08 Masterpiece Grimlock Possibly Getting Reissued Soon

It seems Hasbro Asia is rereleasing Transformers masterpiece toys left right and centre. Not only are they reissuing MP 09 Rodimus Prime, but it looks like they will rerelease MP 08, Grimlock, as well. There is no confirmation yet, but there is a post on Weibo coming from Samuel 1230, a user regularly in the know of upcoming released. The post shows an image of the very same packaging of previous releases with the Takara box saying that they received an announcement of a reissue but that it needed further confirmation.

As with Rodimus, it is unknown if anyone outside Asia would stock this reissue. This could be great news to Chinese fans who do not own this toy yet (and to international fans too, if it becomes available to them). You can check out the extensive Seibertron gallery for this wonderful Grimlock toy. While it might not scale well with the current Masterpiece line, it is still the very best Grimlock toy we have ever gotten.

How to Tell if your MPM-5 Barricade is a Knockoff, and What to Do Next

A lot of people recently have been getting burned with knockoff versions of the newest Movie Masterpiece Transformer on the market, MPM-5 Barricade. Buying highly-desired figures like this, especially on sites like eBay with individual sellers, can lead to a definite risk of ending up with a counterfeit version no matter how careful you may be.

To help you identify if your own copy of Barricade is a pretender to the Movie Masterpiece throne, Seibertronian zhaobinis1 has you covered with a couple identification tips - plus a guide on how best to refund your purchase through eBay if you did receive a fake! They recommend not shipping the figure back as it's technically illegal to ship counterfeit items like this.

Here is how you can do to get a refund without shipping back the KO figure:

1) When receive your figure, click return.
2) Fill in reason as "KO" or "not authentic".
3) Take pictures of your KO figure. There are 2 places you can easily see that are proves of KO. 3.1) The "POLICE" print was misprinted on the trunk while it should be on the spoiler. This could have been fixed but you will still see marks on trunk. 3.2) In the crotch there are 2 C shaped parts that you won't see the opening, while on official figures you will. Basically KO put these parts on the wrong direction.
4) Do not ship it back, as it is illegal to ship inauthentic items. Wait a few days and ask Ebay to step in (there is a button for it).
5) An Ebay employee will be assigned to your case and usually they will ask you to DESTROY the figure and sign something to prove you did it. Then they will refund you at sellers cost.

As a visual aid to zhaobinis1's descriptions, we also have an image from D-Maximal Primal showing the misprinted "POLICE" decal (and its clumsy reapplication to the spoiler):

Best of luck to all you buyers out there - hopefully this guide can help keep you alert for counterfeits in your police-bot-acquiring efforts! And of course, our condolences to those who did receive a knockoff. If you have any thoughts or tips of your own to share, let us know in the Energon Pub forums. And as always, stay tuned to Seibertron.com for any more Transformers news and useful information!

Thanks to Robot Kingdom's Facebook Page we now have some new images of Flame Toys Optimus Prime. We will post them below so you can have a look too. While this model kit does not transform is does pack over 40 points of articulation for great poseability. The post mentions that is made from ABS plastic which model fans should appreciate. This figure will be 15.5cm which is about 6 inches for those of us in the US. Also, according to the packaging this model has interchangeable hands as well as his ax and gun.These images are subject to change as the manufacturer approves the final process.

Top 5 Best Toys R Us Transformers Exclusives of All Time

Every two weeks, Seibertron.com brings you a Top 5 list related to all things Transformers written by me, your fellow editor. These are personal opinions (just like movie or game reviews hosted by sites are still just the opinion of one person) so what matters most is what you guys think of the topic or list, and I hope to see your own lists or comments on omissions and ranking. Let's have fun! All previous lists can be found here.


Top 5 Best Toys R Us Transformers Exclusives of all time


There are not many lists I have written which I won't have to edit in the coming years. It's only normal since more toys come out and new fiction is written (even for existing universes) that there are bound to be updates and new toys that come which make my list dated and in need of an update (like my Top 5 Best Grimlock toys for instance). But when I read the words "All stores CLOSING forever!" in a recent e-mail Toysrus sent out, I realized that with a list like this, it can be definite. So, in honour of this store we all once loved and which many will never be able to walk into again, I decided to look back on its amazing history if Transformers exclusive. Thanks to the multiple board members who suggested the topic, I hope you enjoy it!

5. Transformers Beast Machines Air Attack Optimus Primal (Beast Convoy)

If I was truly bias, I would probably put this at number 1. I just really like this toy and think it has so much to offer. Firstly, you finally get a show accurate Beast Machines Optimus Primal (I would even say you finally get a show accurate figure period). Of all the Transforming gorillas out there, I feel this is the one with the most changes from bot to beast. And that is quite a feat since of all animals, apes are the closest to having humanoid proportions (so many parts are reused in both modes). The chest, head, and every limbs undergoes some kinds of change. I find what they do with the arms brilliant, with the giant gorilla knuckles becoming the massive shoulder pads. Plus he has an awesome array of gimmicks. Just overall a fantastic toy.

4. Transformers Robots In Disguise Scourge (Black Convoy)

I did not know this was a Toysrus exclusive until doing research for this list. I was sure such an iconic character and toy (and mainly look) would have been more widespread to have garnered such an appeal. But no, Scourge was indeed only sold at Toysrus. This is easily the most iconic toy of the line, even if it is a redeco. Actually, the fact that he is encapsulates the line quite well since a big part of it was breathing new life and characters into toys we had already experienced. It was also about merging the gap between what came before the year 2000 in the Transformers brand and setting a stage for a return to vehicles along with starting a constant look at the past in terms of homages and inspirations (and also foreshadowing the fact that every single Optimus Prime mold would need a teal/red/black deco treatment from here on out).

3. Transformers Masterpiece Optimus Prime (MP-10) (Convoy)

Calm your horses, this isn't merely based on the toy, but its status as a Toysrus exclusive. The original toy was available for a while and fans had found a way to get it with this release merely making it more available (and affordable, depending on the release and where you are located). I take major issue with the packaging too, along with the unpainted trailer. The main advantage here was not having to pay the import fee, and for a toy as cool as MP 10, he is still most deserving of this number 3 spot.

2. Transformers Animated Rodimus Minor (Rodimus)

Those final Animated toys were all sublime. That refers to Arcee, Rodimus Minor, and the Cybertronian Ratchet/Ironhide mold, which I recommend all fans to experience. These all display what is great about the animated line, having these radical designs be brought to toys, with innovative transformations is hard to beat. And of those three molds, Rodimus is the one that succeeds best. I have already gushed about this toy enough and you can read more about him here and here.

1. Transformers Masterpiece Soundwave

I know I wasn't the nicest when it came to Masterpiece Prime's release (but give me a break, he made the top 3), but Soundwave was everything a fan could dream. Unlike Prime, the Hasbro release, exclusive to Toysrus, gave us some major value by having all his cassettes included with him (well the ones that were already out) rather than buying them individually. That was a saving of 80-100$ easily. Plus he came with the new collector oriented packaging, which helped you store everything perfectly with an awesome display window. It is better packaging than the Takara version which had been released the same year, meaning western fans wouldn't have to wait for a domestic release. Not only was the wait short, but they got more.

Honourable Mentions:

The Prime First Edition toys are an odd bunch since they are technically mainline toys that saw a release all over the world but were only picked up by Toysrus in the US, and then were eventually found in other places like 5 Below. So depending on one's definition for an exclusive, I kept them for the honourable mentions but I do want to highlight Prime and Bulkhead who I don't think saw a release in the US outside of Toysrus (could be wrong, this line's release is super confusing).

Transformers News: Top 5 Best Toys R Us Transformers Exclusives of All Time
Transformers Prime: First Edition Bulkhead Gallery

I also really like the AOE Evolution Optimus Prime set, and the three 2016 Clash of Transformers toys we got in the RID line (though the only unique mold, Starscream, did get released later unchanged, so it doesn't really qualify as an exclusive anymore).
