While I am not the biggest fan of the live-action Transformers movies, I do appreciate the “realistic” robot and vehicle designs the series has spawned. Revealed today at Toy Fair 2018, the Studio Series celebrates those designs with intricate figures packaged with movie backdrops. I might need them. Update: And…
“Trukk not Munkey!” was the cry of fans as they rallied against Beast Wars when it debuted in 1996. But over its three seasons of clever writing, original series easter eggs, excellent voice acting and one heroic sacrifice it became one of the most beloved animated series in Transformers history. It’s a pity its video…
If you were planning on purchasing any Transformers video games on Steam or the PlayStation Network over the holidays, it’s too late. Activision’s pulled them all, along with 2014's The Legend of Korra.
Shoryuken! Hadouken! Spinning Bird Kick! Psycho Crusher! Now transform into a car! Due out in Japan in May, Transformers X Street Fighter II figures turn four existing transforming robots into mechanical world warriors.
Donald Trump’s presidency has seen the words “Make America Great Again”—a.k.a. MAGA—plastered all over the U.S., from placards to stickers to the infamous red hats. One of the last places you’d expect to see it, however, is on the side of a toy Transformers car in an alien language. And yet, it seems here we are.
The partnership between Hasbro and Machinima that gave us last year’s Transformers: Combiner Wars series bears new fruit next week, when Titans Returns brings some of the largest disguised robots in the toy box out to play.
There was a lot of quality cosplay at this year’s New York Comic Con, but perhaps the most impressive of all was this enormous Bumblebee outfit that despite its size was still able to walk its way across the showroom floor.
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?
