Marcelo Matere has updated his page to include the boxart for the new Universe line. We've seen these pictures on the packages, but now you can see them stand alone.





If you're wondering why these four looks so stiff, it was at the request of Hasbro. Do you think it makes them more iconic or do you think it holds back the artists creativity?

Discussion as always is welcome.

We saw it in the recent TFCC Botcon Convention Comic Preview in the news here. An evil Rodimus having a chat with Classics Cliffjumper.

It looked as if rumors of Rodimus with a goatee being part of the Botcon Lineup were true. And now from the Asian auction site Taobao, Orion_Prime shares an auction for the convention exclusive figure here.

No robot mode pictures are available yet, but I know we are all looking forward to seeing how the 'stach and beard get painted/molded on.

Botcon is less than a month away!

This comes as a surprise to most, but Ozformers member Griffin-of-oz has posted some pictures of the Austrailian Toy Fair. He only has a few pictures, but what he has taken shows us alot!

This is our first look at Ultra Class Universe Silverbolt, as well as the new Marvel Crossovers. In the pictures we see Wolverine, Venom, Grey Hulk, Human Torch and Spider Man. We also get a small peek at what Universe Sideswipe may look like Transformed (Universe Sunstreaker)

Griffin-of-oz has been kind enough to share pictures with everyone over at TFW2005. To check them out, click here


Thanks to Burn for pointing out something of importance to our Australian fans that Griffon-of-oz has reported on:

- Target Australia will have a store exclusive in July. Masterpiece Convoy/Optimus, apparently in Japanese packaging like the release of MP Ultra Magnus to Target a few years back. It will NOT be the MP04 Trailer version, it will be the MP01 version. Apparently there will be about 2000 units, which should see quite a few at each store (probably 30-40).

Good news Australia!

Character-Breakdown For Transformers 2?

The Movie Reporter has posted on their website the following report. According to their sources, work on the next Michael Bay Transformers Movie set to be released June 26th 2009, is still being prepped. Most interresting about their report is the following character breakdown, mostly for the human characters that soon will need to be cast. The following excerpt has been taken directly from their site.

"It's hard to tell what Michael Bay and his merry band of filmmaker friends will be calling the Constructicons in Transformers 2, but the above names will most likely change, especially considering that they used the name "Bonecrusher" in the first film.

In addition to the Constructicon news, the IESB has just been given the following human character/casting breakdowns -
[CHUCK] 19-25 yrs., Sam's roommate at Princeton. He runs a conspiracy theory website. Funny in an irreverent, edgy way, he is shocked to see his conspiracy theories come to life. (2nd Lead)

[U.S. MILITARY LEADER] Late 20s/early 30s, African American with a great sense of humor and a tough military presence. (Supporting lead)

[UK SPECIAL FORCES LEADER] British, in his early to mid 30s, smart and capable. Can be Caucasian, Black, East Indian. (Supporting lead)

[GALLOWAY] Early 40s-early 50s, male, National Security Advisor and presidential liaison. A curt man who is tightly wound. (Supporting Lead)

[PROFESSOR COLAN] 40s, Sam's physics professor at Princeton. He's a self-satisfied intellectual who compares himself to Einstein, and is arrogant enough to wear leather pants to look cool. (1 Scene)

[THERESA] Early 30s; she's Sgt. Epps' wife, has 4 kids, sassy and sexy, good with comedy. Submit African American actresses only

[MOMMA SIMMONS] This NY Momma is in her late 60s / early 70s. She runs a deli/ butcher shop with her son in Brooklyn. Tough and sarcastic. (1 Scene)

[MASSIVE DYNAMICS CEO] 50s, male, this Corporate CEO appears in front of congress to testify. (1 speech/scene)

[TEXAS CONGRESSMAN] 55-65 yrs., on a Congressional Committee investigating the purpose of the "Automated Defensive Initiative" developed by Massive Dynamics.

[FBI DIRECTOR] Mid 50s, male, giving a press release assuring the public they will be safe against attacks. (1 speech/scene)

[CNN REPORTER] Reporting on missile strikes and bombings in various cities. Submit male / female, all ethnicities (1 speech)

There is also mention of a rumor that acress Natassia Malthe may have been cast for a part in Transformers 2, but this rumor got started from someone posting on the Don Murphy Board that something may have been mentioned along those lines in an article from a norwegian celebrity magazine, about the break-up between the actress and the pop-singer Robbie Williams. Since no others sources mentions the acress being cast for Transformers 2, we doubt if there is any truth to this.

We would also like to remind you that director Michael Bay has warned us in the past that they would be spreading around false information to keep the spoilers for the movie save. There is a chance that the character breakdown is incorrect. But does have a pretty good track record of uncovering information of this nature.

TakaraTomy has updated their Transformers website with official images of Trans Scanning Optimus Prime. This particular series offers a different style of Transformers. Exterior pieces snap onto an inner skeleton, which can be posed or transformed into two alternate modes. Trans Scanning Optimus Prime comes with exterior panels to mimic his truck mode and protoform mode.

Trans Scanning Optimus Prime was released in Japan last week and BBTS is now confirming shipments.
