In the first of four prelude videos leading to the Transformers: Combiner Wars animated series, Autobot leader Optimus Prime recalls how he ended the last great war. Here’s a hint: one stands, one falls.
This past Thursday, director Michael Bay introduced a new robot that will be joining his upcoming Transformers movie, The Last Knight. Some fans were quite upset at the addition of this tiny, goofy-looking Autobot to the Transformer movie pantheon, and I have a question for those fans: Really? (I also have a follow-up…
This is what the first official Transformers animated series for adults looks like. So far, so good.
Last year Transformers fans from around the world voted the first all-female combiner team into existence. Now Toy Time finally gets the chance to combine six robots into on giant robot woman. Rust Renegades, combine to form Victorion!
On Thursday Hasbro and Sony released Transformers Roll Out, an album featuring transforming robot inspired tracks from ten very different artists, including Danish alt rock band Mew and Gavin Rossdale’s Bush. Let’s give it a listen!
With a game by developers who’ve worked on Elite Beat Agents and Gears of War and toys—real articulated action figures—from one of Transformers’ most prolific designers, Infinite Arms is exactly where I wanted the toys-to-life genre to go.
What at first looks like a generic, classic red 2x4 brick with tiny holes on it, is a bit more exciting inside.
My second and final full day at my very first Toy Fair 2016 in New York City has come and gone, and already I miss it terribly. Nothing flipping through photos of Nerf guns, Pokemon plushies, Final Fantasy figures, Monster High dolls, Transformers, Marvel heroes and more can’t fix.
Last week I wrote about Woobots, the wooden robots that transform into wooden vehicles, currently the focus of a successful Kickstarter campaign. This week I play with them.
They’re robots. They’re vehicles. They’re kindling. I guess that makes Bamloff’s line of wooden transforming robots triple changers. Either way, WooBots are very cool.
Trypticon. Omega Supreme. Scorponok—three of the biggest Transformers toys ever made. Hasbro wants to bring one of them back, and it’s up to fans to decide. This is not going to be easy.
This is not a screenshot. It is not a piece of two dimensional fan art. This is a fan-modded Optimus Prime action figure. Seriously.
I was a little worried about not being able to get my hands on Transformers: Devastation until launch day. After playing for five minutes, everything is just prime.
Greetings, my magnificent mail-minions! I’ve got a swell—dare I say it, keen group of questions in this week’s mailbags, but I want to try something. If you have a question for the postman, you can email me, but you can also leave it in the comments of this article, and I’ll try to round them up for next week’s column.
The results of the Autobots Vs. Decepticons Splatoon event are in, and obviously someone’s been paid off. Splatfest? This is bad comedy.
I didn’t make it to Comic-Con 2015, but there was no way the show was going to pass without taking a pass at some of Hasbro’s Transformers exclusives, including the return of the original Decepticon combiner terror, Devastator.
Transformers: Human Alliance was an OK arcade shooter that came out a couple of years ago. It was a pretty standard lightgun affair. This new special edition of the game, only available in Japanese arcades, is anything but standard.
Must have been a hell of a challenge to build this custom Optimus Prime with LEGO bricks on a scale like this. It’s the movie version of the leader of the Autobots, but that’s excusable, since it’s not just a huge truck, but a fully transformable model.
