Announced at Hascon over the weekend and debuting later this month in the Transformers: Earth Wars mobile game, Volacanicus is what happens when the Autobots’ robot dinosaurs get their act together.
Back in 2015, Hasbro asked Transformers fans to choose between Autobot Omega Supreme and Decepticons Scorponok and Trypticon as the next massive titan-class toy. City-sized T-rex Trypticon won, and now he’s on my desk, with a friend ready to help open him up.
Last year’s Machinima-produced Transformers: Combiner Wars series was neat, but its voice cast, largely comprised of prominent YouTubers, was hit-or-miss. For the second leg of the trilogy, they’re bringing in the big guns, including the original voices of Optimus Prime and Hot Rod. Also, Tay Zonday.
Did you see Michael Bay’s fifth movie in the disturbingly profitable Transformers franchise this weekend? Did you have a question about it, besides “Why is this movie about giant robots and explosions so boring?” Our patented Spoiler FAQ has all the answers you need and also probably several you didn’t.
While each new trailer or snippet I see of Transformers: The Last Knight heightens the foreboding I feel for the upcoming film, some of the toys Hasbro is releasing to go with the movie aren’t half-bad. Officially announced yesterday, converting Cybertron is coming to light our darkest hour.
Last year the company responsible for D&D, Magic: The Gathering, My Little Pony and Transformers announced Hascon, a three-day fan celebration of the stuff it makes. Tickets for the Providence, Rhode Island show are now on sale, with adult three-day passes ranging from $165 to $600. Wow.
Random paid character drops in mobile games aren’t new, but I’m really feeling the burn in Kabam’s mobile fighting game Transformers: Forged to Fight. First I missed out on Beast Wars Waspinator. Now I’m not going to get Soundwave. Ugh.
Transformers: Forged to Fight is a game about giant transforming robots fighting each other. When said giant transforming robots are fighting each other, it is very good. The rest of the time? It’s complicated.
Okay, look. I need to ask something: Transformers franchise, are you okay? Because this... thing you’ve unleashed upon the world feels like you’re not. Are you entering your angsty teen years? Is that what all the swords are about?
The live-action Transformers films have spent four movies reducing cities to piles of rubble. A robot that transforms into a pile of rubble, as seen in this weekend’s clip of Transformers: The Last Knight from the Kids’ Choice Awards, makes perfect sense.
Earlier this month a Transformer near and dear to my heart faced off against Ultra Magnus, Star Saber and Deathsaurus in a fan vote for who would be the next ‘bot to wield the Matrix of Leadership. Move over, Optimus Prime. It’s Optimus Primal’s time.
Mobile developer Kabam and Hasbro roll out a new trailer for their upcoming fighting game at Toy Fair 2017 today, demonstrating just how deep and obscure the roster for Transformers: Forged to Fight is going to get. How many do you recognize?
In late 2015, Hasbro asked Transformers fans to choose from one of three massive classic characters to update for the modern age. Decepticon city Trypticon beat our Omega Supreme and Scorponok, and now we have our first look at the biggest official Decepticon toy ever.
First round results for Hasbro’s “Power of the Primes” Transformers fan vote are in, narrowing down the next keeper of the Matrix of Leadership to four candidates: the Japanese one, the obvious one, Monkey Joe and Unknown (though secretly Deathsaurus) Evil. If only they held debates.
Normally it’s the Matrix of Leadership that determines which Transformer takes up the Prime mantle, but this year Hasbro’s doing things a little differently. Fans are voting to see which Autobot, Decepticon or unknown evil gets the next Optimus-style upgrade.
Welcome to the first annual Toy Time Holiday Gift Spectacular, with special guests Batman, Spike the Dragon, The Walking Dead, Transformers and more. These are the toys and collectibles that would have made my Christmas list, were they not already sitting right over there.
When mobile developer Kabam announced robot battler Transformers: Forged To Fight earlier this month, I assumed it was little more than a reskin of popular mobile fighter Marvel: Contest of Champions. With features like ranged attacks and 3D movement, it’s more like an evolution.
The first trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight went up last night, giving fans a first look at the flashy nonsense that will make Michael Bay, Hasbro and Paramount a ton of money next year. Let’s see what knowledge we can glean from those explosive 140 seconds.
DC Super Hero Girls versus Pokémon. Funko Pop! vinyls versus Lego Disney minifigures. Fossil Hunter Lottie versus Fortress Maximus. We’ve got some tough choices to make to determine the winners of the Toy Industry Association’s 2017 Toy of the Year awards.
