A few days ago, the Facebook pages for both BotCon and their soon-to-be-former merchandise partner Night Shining, Inc. posted never-before-seen concept material from years past.

The first is a pitch that was made by Fun Publications back in 2010 for a sort of Rescue Bots type spinoff of G.I. Joe, called "Adventure Team", with art provided by Evan Gauntt.
An internal pitch that was made to Hasbro back in the mid 2010’s. With the brand having direction issues, the current team at Night Shining (who use to work for the official G.I.Joe licensee) made this pitch. It brought together 1970’s Adventure Team G.I. Joe with the concept of the 1980’s ARAH. This concept was pitched as a mix of appeal to the Rescue Bots and Transformers Prime audience. Basically, what cartoons use to be in the 80’s!

Obviously it was not used by Hasbro, but what do you think? Would something like this have been a hit? A young Cobra Commander, Destro, and Baroness? Future G.I. Joe’s making weekly guest appearances? Guess we’ll never know. (And never knowing is… the other half of the battle?)

The amazing art for the pitch was done by Evan ZeroMayhem

The second is the earliest concept PDF for what would ultimately become Transformers: Prime, laying out the earliest intentions and goals for what fans would term the "Aligned Continuity", unifying video games, novels, comics, cartoons, packaging blurbs, and web content into one conglomerated universe.

At this point, the movies and G1 were still the biggest influences. Animated's influence had not yet been added to the mix, while Revenge of the Fallen was the most recent source of influence.

Much of the artwork in this pitch was made for the "Binder of Revelation", the production bible that served as the creative backbone of the Aligned Continuity. While none of these designs actually made it into the final version of Transformers: Prime, several of these pieces made it into the books Transformers: The Ultimate Pop-Up Universe and Transformers: The Covenant of Primus.
NEVER BEFORE SEEN concepts for the series Transformers: Prime! (August 2009 WIP - Not Final)

It’s been 13 years since Transformers Prime debuted. For better or worse, this franchise was the series intent on transitioning the characters from the big screen to the small.

Like many media projects, the initial idea is often somewhat to quite different than what is finally seen on the screen.

So, with that seems now is the perfect time to show off a little something we have been holding on to for the last 14 years - The original official working pdf pitch for what would eventually be known as Transformers: Prime. The series had a working title of ‘Robots in Disguise’ and as you will see, the design and character selection was initially much more aligned with the live action movies.

So take a look! We are showing off around 20 pages of the pdf here. Some amazing never before seen looks at the Prime series!

Peter Cullen, a man that needs no introduction to anyone here, has been honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2nd Annual Children's and Family Emmys this past weekend. The ceremony was originally part of the Daytime Emmys before recently spinning off into its own thing. And who better to present such an award to Optimus Prime than Megatron himself, Frank Welker?

This is a great way to kick off the 40th anniversary of the Transformers franchise which Peter has been a part of the entirety of. Since there's a real chance that you weren't sitting at home watching the presentation online you can watch Frank's presentation and Peter's acceptance speech on YouTube below uploaded by Optimus Production.



Congratulations, Mr. Cullen, you deserve it!

Ready for another serving of Tidal Wave news? Thanks to Transformers design team member Sam Smith (by way of our own Seibertronian Sabrblade) we have a rather hefty load of info on Megatron's #1 fan! Plus we've got a video at the bottom of the turnarounds that Sam shared on Instagram (mirrored on YouTube by Cybertron 21) and our first look at the amazing box art!

Transformers Legacy United - Titan Tidal Wave

“Tidal Wave, Tidal Wave, Tidal Wave”

With the daunting chant on impending doom and having been officially announced at Cybertron Fest Singapore, let’s get into the details of Titan Tidal Wave. With the launch of Legacy United, we knew that there was no greater time to revisit this character at the titan scale. This guy was a blast to work on, but we had so many priorities we needed to define out of the gate. As a Titan, Tidal Wave needed to deliver a large scale super articulated robot. As a vehicle, he needed to deliver a large flying aquatic war craft, which needed to be assembled out of 3 smaller vehicle form factors (the dark fleet). Tidal Wave needed to combine with Armada Megatron, to create Burning Megatron and we felt that he needed to have an alt mode that was achievable without the need to separate the vehicles in assembly. I’d like to say that we were able to achieve 4 out of the 5, but in the end, we did them all!

Shogo Hasui (Hasui san) was an absolute rockstar to work with on this project, and continued to find incredible solutions in delivering such a massive undertaking. He continued to push this figure forward despite all the curve balls that we through to him.

In the end Tidal Wave delivers a super articulated Titan robot, with waist, ankle, clever butterfly shoulders, wrist and neck. His chest weaponry all 8 turrets points are articulated for rotation, with the larger 4 featuring articulated barrels and 5mm ports for blast effect compatibility. In addition, his palm cannons also used 5mm ports that can be utilized in robot and alt mode

Tidal Waves color spec is primary based on the Armada animation with a few pieces of influence from the original toy, similar to Armada Megatron.

What are your thoughts on Titan Tidal Wave? Was he a worthy selection for the next titan figure? Our would you have preferred to have seen him at a smaller scale? Let us know along with any other questions in the comments below!

https://www.instagram.com/p/C0zNcdlO6_x/?img_index=1
Transformers Legacy United - Titan Tidal Wave - Alt Mode

We decided early on, the importance of delivering the dark fleet as 3 separate vehicles to align to the original toy, and the consistent onscreen combination sequence that took place on screen. Due to this figure being super articulated, we would not be able to have him transform from robot to combined war craft without separating the vehicle forms. In order to avoid having him be referred to as a parts former, we introduced a secondary alt mode as a battle station / weapons fortress.

https://www.instagram.com/p/C0zNoMVO0Tl/?img_index=1
Transformers Legacy United - Titan Tidal Wave - Combined Burning Megatron

In order to combine with Megatron to create Burning Megatron, miniature versions of the dark fleet can be extracted from various parts of Tidal Wave in order to combine. To avoid being left with a partial titan during the combination, we introduced a secondary transformation to the hands to keep them in tact so that a very in tact titan figure remains. The miniature versions are able able to be displayed as mini dark fleet vehicles, that convert into their armored accessories for Megatron.

To assist with the added weight of the components, and to deliver a more frightening Megatron, Foot extensions are included to raise the characters height, along with the ability to port the arm weaponry into the sides of the arms or the upper shoulders.

The Transformers Team over on the Hasbro Pulse YouTube channel decided to have a little fun between BMac, Evan and Mark and do a sort of sports style "toy draft" picking their favorite figures of 2023 without duplicating picks for their "teams". They're picks were broken down by class as well as a wild card pick in no specific order. While mostly just something done for fun it did include quite a bit of banter between the three that has given us some insight into what we might find in the future as well as insight into the design process of figures they chose.

- It doesn't sound like they're working on a blue G2 Grimlock... yet.
- There was a brief, not by name mention of Dino King when talking about Core Scarr
- They actually called Nemesis "dommy mommy"... (Link is at least visually safe for work.)
- They said they have way more female characters than most people know about. Not sure if that meant to pick from or in the works.
- Apparently Takara gave the go ahead for SS86 Rumble and Frenzy to get their cartoon colors matched to their names (RiBFiR) after Siege went the other way (seemingly at Takara's request).
- Mark actually said Ultra Magnus has been under represented leading to the SS86 figure.
- Mark used some of Aaron Archer's original concept art when designing Commander Class Armada Optimus Prime.
- Mark was also the one that got Buzzworthy Tow-Line made.
- They joke about only making 4 SS86 Dinobots. They must hear that alot.
- Lots of gushing over Retro reissue pink Hot Rod and praise for that line in general.
- Mark actually went to a dump and waste management site for inspiration with Trashmaster (who was named by their copy editor).
- Tease more Insecticon repaints (but definitely no more Dinobots).



It's a little telling that while they praised the Studio Series line, most of their picks came from Legacy. Was there anything big that was missed? Let us know in the Seibertron Energon Pub forum!

Once again we find ourselves mourning the loss of another Canadian voice actor. Pauline Newstone, much loved voice of Airazor in the Beast Wars series, passed away on May 5 this year, though cause and age aren't known. The news comes from Garry Chalk collaborator Candice Santora who was spreading the word of her passing on Tuesday as it came with little fanfare at the time. Chalk himself apparently spotted her name during the UBCP/ACTRA Awards (British Columbia's actors union) In Memoriam segment he attended on November 25.

Outside of Transformers she was the first English voice for Frieza in Dragon Ball Z, Mum Mew in Monster Rancher, Mistress Centipede in InuYasha, Agatha Harkness in X-Man: Evolution, Haka in Mummies Alive! and various voices in Captain N.

When a YouTuber also gets to help set up the displays at a toy show it also comes with the perks of being able to handle figures early. That's what happened with Ben Custom Toys was able to work the Hasbro booth at Cybertron Con 2023 in Singapore this weekend giving us early access and our first look at the newly revealed Transformers Legacy United Origin Wheeljack. Surpassing expectations, Voyager Wheeljack does not appear to share any parts with the previous Deluxe Origin Jazz and for the most part seems to be on par with the previous Origins releases. As with the previous releases he's expected to be a Target exclusive, but an image of the box shared on Baidu appears to be a normal United box rather than Buzzworthy Bumblebee. The package also shows that much of the alt mode shell can be removed and probably isn't required to be hung off his back.

Also handled in the video are Studio Series Bumblebee Movie Megatron and Rumble, United Tiger Hawk, Thundertron, Animated Optimus Prime, Animated Bumblebee, Cyberverse Windblade, Rescue Bots Chase, Gamer Edition Starscream, 86 Scrapheap, Reactivate Soundwave, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Starscream, and closeups of others.

After years of demand and and a long wait for a reveal we finally have our first look at Transformers Legacy United Titan class Armada Tidal Wave in all his glory! Our first look comes via several sources including Toy Scope on Facebook, Ben Custom Toys on YouTube and social media platform Baidu user 爱你命三千 (I Love You 3000). Unsurprising the figure is massive and features his cartoon and original Takara toy colors and his two alt modes, Dark Fleet and the massive airship. A little more surprising is he also includes a fourth simple base mode complete with ramp that doesn't seem to be compatible with your sprawling Decepticon cities (but maybe there's a way?), as well as smaller parts to attach to Legacy Evolution Armada Megatron to at least imitate their combined mode and can be added as towers to the base mode. Unfortunately, like Cybertron Metroplex, he will not include his Mini-Con Ramjet but we seem to be getting quite a bit for our money this time around.

We should be seeing him in stores in the summer with a price just under $200 depending on the whims of the stores. We can probably expect a bigger reveal in the coming days and an upload of the video played at the show. Thanks to Seibertronian Rodimus Prime for the heads up!

It's with a heavy heart that we report on the passing of Peter Spellos at age 69 of pancreatic cancer. Spellos is probably best known among Transformers fans as the voice of Robots in Disguise's 2023 fan nominated Hall of Fame inductee Sky-Byte. Spellos would have also been familiar to fans of late '90s and '00s TV anime in the west as Monev the Gale in Trigun, Gilliam in Outlaw Star, Hiroshi Rara in Duel! Parallel Trouble Adventure, Bartley Asprius in Code Geass, Whamon in the Digimon franchise (among many other voices), plus Sagat in Street Figher II: The Animated Movie and various voices in Naruto, Lupin III, Fist of the North Star, and Gundam among many others. He was also a guest at BotCon 2002.

The news of his passing was posted to Facebook by his long time friend and fellow actor Fred Olen Ray. Thanks to Kuhlio of the Seibertron Twincast Podcast for bringing this to our attention.

    Roll For It
    The Ultimate Doom, Part 3

Three of the unused stories focus on Omega Supreme (then under the working name of Fortress Maximus), and a fourth focusing on Seaspray.

All of these can be viewed at https://sunbowmarvelarchive.blogspot.com/p/mp-700-transformers-part-1-1984-1985.html

Below is an animatic, edited by me, of the unproduced season 2 intro sequence:
