Transformers Toy News

Last Maximal has posted two images over on the Allspark which show that the recolour of Transformers Classics Optimus Prime that has recently popped up in some auctions is an upcoming release from Platinum Series two pack with a redeco of Voyager Classics Megatron!

The toys within the pack are redecos of the original Transformers Classics Voyager molds for the same characters. Optimus Prime retains his traditional red and blue deco, but uses clear blue panels on the arms and has a Autobot symbol stamped on his wind vane. The Megatron has a silver body, with red forearms and red-and-black legs, in robot form whilst the gun mode is mainly red to pass the requirements to make toy guns look like toys and not real guns.

The set is called “One Shall Stand, One Shall Fall” and much like the Platinum series Planet of Junk Clash set, is another special edition being made to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Transformers: the Movie.

According to Last Maximal, this set is out in specialty stores in the Philippines.

Transformers Convention News

TFNation have announced that renowned concept designer and illustrator, Emiliano Santalucia, shall be joining them for their inaugural convention which takes place August 19th - 21st in Birmingham England.

You can find a copy of the announcement below.

TransmissionID: 000018
Operation: Concept and Design

We are honoured to announce that renowned concept designer and illustrator, Emiliano Santalucia, shall be joining us for our inaugural convention!

Emiliano is a concept artist on the live action Transformers movie series produced by Paramount Pictures. He has also undertaken substantial work as a concept artist and toy designer for Hasbro Inc. on various Transformers toy lines including Dark Of The Moon, Transformers: Crossovers, Generations, Robots In Disguise, the fan favourite Combiner Wars and the highly anticipated Titans Return. Some of the toys he has worked on include Generations Rhinox, Rattrap, Waspinator and Metroplex; Combiner Wars Sky Lynx; Titans Return Galvatron, Fortress Maximus and Skull Cruncher to name but a few. On top of his film and toy credentials, Emiliano has also worked on Transformers comics for both IDW and Devils Due.

Despite his amazing range of work with the Transformers brand, Emiliano is probably best known for his association with Mattel's He-Man and the Masters of the Universe brand. He also co-founded The Power and Honor Foundation; a non-profit organisation which exists to collect, archive, preserve, and educate the public about the creative origins of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and She-Ra Princess of Power. Emiliano's MOTU work covers comics, toy / statue design, art books and Definitive Films' Power of Grayskull documentary.

Outside of these two brands, Emiliano has also worked on other comic book series from Star Comics and Play Press, Image Comics, MVC Creations, Devils Due and IDW (including G.I Joe, Power Rangers) as well as working on various DVD covers (The Real Ghostbusters; Defenders of the Earth; Bravestarr; Blackstar and Hero High).

For a glimpse of Emiliano's work take a look at his Facebook page (

Emiliano will be signing autographs and selling artwork from Friday 19th until Sunday 21st August 2016 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel at TFNation 2016 – we look forward to seeing you there!

Twitter user Mr. Crying Face has posted a clearer image of the highly anticipated Transformers Unite Warriors Blast Off figure. The image, which is a scan from a Japanese Hobby Magazine, shows Blast Off’s robot mode as well as his alt mode showing, in turn, a better idea of how his transformation will work. The images suggest that Blast-Off is going to be a completely new figure or an extremely head re-tooling at the vers least.

Transformers Convention News

TFNation have issued the following press release regarding the state of the hotel rooms:

TransmissionID: 000017
Operation: Hotel Update

Since our new website went live, it has become apparent that the TFNation crew is blessed with a lot of support. We cannot thank you enough for this, as we continue to build on what will be a fantastic event.

One of the results of this strong support has been an unprecedented demand for convention-rate rooms at the Hiton Metropole. The reservations have been fast and unrelenting as people have booked early to secure their spot. Due to this demand, the remaining allocation has become limited in a very short period of time.

Naturally, we have received a lot of questions regarding the remaining rooms, so we wanted to take this opportunity to answer some of these points, provide some information and keep everyone upto date.

No. Although some room types have sold out on the core convention nights (twins and doubles being the very first room types that everyone booked) there are still other options available. The Sunday night allocation saw the most demand and so the remaining options for that night are the most limited.

We have already liaised with the hotel and it is very unlikely that we will be afforded any more rooms at the convention-rate, as they have to cater for multiple events. With this in mind, we encourage you to make alternate plans now.

We still have a healthy allocation of Friday and Saturday single rooms at the discounted price, but they won’t last forever, so we encourage you to book quickly.

We also have some executive upgrade rooms remaining, both twin and doubles. Remember, whilst executive rooms are more expensive, they give you access to the executive bar, with its selection of complimentary alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Plus, sharing a room (and therefore, the nightly rate) will help to bring your costs down, somewhat.


Some attendees may not be aware, but many previous events at the Hilton have sold out of their discounted rooms, with lots of attendees sourcing alternate accommodation without too much bother. If you have not been in this position before, then it is natural to become a little stressed by the situation. It is, however, important to remember that nothing has gone wrong - the truth is that a large amount of our TF community have booked straight away and taken up many of the options available.

Sadly, we have received reports that a small number of people have called the Hilton directly and have been less than polite to reception staff. This serves little purpose but to damage TFNation's relationship with the Hilton and may, infact, impact future years'
allocations. We strongly urge our attendees not to do this - reception staff do not have the authority to give you additional rooms, or change booked rates, and do not deserve to be treated badly during their day job.

Thanks for your understanding.


Stay calm. We are seven months away from the event - you have lots of time to plan. There are multiple ways you can book alternative accomodation, with the minimum of fuss. Remember, this is where you will sleep after enjoying all the convention's events. While staying outside of the main hotel may add extra time when returning to your room, it will not impact the jokes in the bar, the workshops we will announce shortly, the panels, the guests and your friends who you will no doubt meet, that weekend.

Below, we will list the options you can take now, while we work on alternative avenues. We advise you to take prompt action as holding out for your prefered room to become available again will only reduce your options.

If you are looking for a single room for the three nights then we suggest you book the Friday and Saturday at the Hilton, and then you just need to find an option for the Sunday. Even if the last night costs more, you have at least saved on the other two nights and that will lessen the impact of a Sunday booking.


We have opened
a thread on our facebook page for people looking for roommates. If there is a spare bed in your room, please consider assisting a fellow fan.

Although the convention rate rooms are selling quickly, the Hilton – like most hotels – reserves some rooms for public sale.

Presently the Hilton is holding a WINTER SALE event on its website

These rooms represent a good saving over standard hotel prices, though you may have to pay upfront. Unlike convention rooms, breakfast is typically not included.

If you already have a discounted room booked for certain convention nights then you can ask the Hilton to keep you in that room for your public booking, if it is the same room type. To do this, you can contact them shortly before the event, or ask reception when you check in. The Hilton is not able to change the cost of publicly booked rooms to the convention rate, after ordering.

Third party websites also sell some of the publicly available rooms at the Hilton. While some bookings will be cheaper than the Hilton's Winter Sale rooms, payment dates and breakfast options may vary - always read the terms. We suggest you try the following:

This week we will update our website to provide you with a list of alternative accommodation in the area – there are lots of options within walking distance or a short commute. As we are seven months away from the convention, browsers will have numerous options.

We hope this update has been helpful and we thank you for your understanding. We know booking hotel rooms can be a stressful time. Whether or not you get your first choice room, we hope as many of you as possible will join us at the convention.

Botcon have released the box art for this years box set with the exclusive combiner team Predacus. The artwork shown below also reveals another character from this years event

If you look closely at the top left you will see a red jet with a orange nosecone and teeth like markings. This appears to be a previous unannounced Combiner Wars Terrorsaur figure!!  Also at the bottom left is an overturned vehicle, its hard to tell who this is but it with Terrorsaur being the first non-boxset toy you have to ask yourself "where are the Maximals?"

Transformers Convention News

Tickets for TFNation 2016 are available right now over on the TFNation website. At the same time the new TFNation website has launched containing information on the guests, news stories, information on the crew, photo albums and much more to come.

Below you will find a copy of both of the most recent news stories


TransmissionID: 000014

Operation: Hotel Discount Activating

With registration for TFNation 2016 opening at noon on Friday 15th January now is the perfect time to reveal our discounted hotel room rate and also to remind you of some features that are included within your ticket price.


Whether you buy a ticket that lasts for the full weekend, or just for the Sunday, there is plenty to see and do at TFNation. This is what your ticket entitles you to;

1. Access to autograph sessions. Our guests will not charge for autographs.
2. Access to panels and workshops.
3. Access to our dealer room.
4. Buying a TFNation ticket also means you qualify to reserve a hotel room at a reduced rate (subject to availability)

(access to all areas is subject to maximum room capacity, for safety reasons.)


The Hilton Birmingham Metropole (or as we like to call it - The Hilton Metroplex) ... has kindly offered the following discounted nightly rates to TFNation attendees;

- £59.00 Single Deluxe room, including complimentary breakfast.
- £68.00 Twin / Queen room, including complimentary breakfast.
- from £98.00 Family room, including complimentary breakfast - family room prices increases by £12.00 per each additional adult.

(executive class rooms also available at an additional charge)

All rates are nightly and all include VAT.

It is important to remember that you do not have to pay for your hotel room at the time of reservation. So reserve now to avoid disappointment, then pay at check in.

As a first year convention our bedroom allocation is limited, so we strongly advise you to book early to avoid disappointment. If your chosen stay appears to be unavailable, it may just mean one room type on one day is full - try different combinations of nights and room types for the best chance of securing accommodation at the event.

We will be monitoring room sales closely and will be providing information about nearby alternatives, should our allocation sell out quickly.


Not only are both ticket registration and hotel bookings available from 12pm (GMT) Friday but we are also launching a brand new convention website. The new site will enable you to follow our transmissions, book tickets using our secure booking process and find out more information about our guests as well as the fantastic hotel facilities that residents will have access to.

Thank you for your support. We look forward to welcoming you to our new website this coming Friday!

We wish to start this transmission by issuing a huge THANK YOU to everybody who has booked tickets to attend TFNation 2016 today. Your support is much appreciated.

Bedroom sales have been phenomenal and we are aware that some room types are now in very limited supply. We've received many good questions, so we are going to provide some of the answers for you here.

1. We do still have bedrooms available, but some rooms types on some nights are in short supply.

2. As we still have rooms left we encourage you to try different booking combinations when looking for a room. Try looking for individual nights to benefit from the deals.

3. We are already liaising with the hotel to see whether more rooms can be provided. This cannot be guaranteed, but we will let you know if we are successful.

4. We have already prepared detailed advice on alternative accommodation, because we want as many people as possible to enjoy TFNation. This will be released shortly.

Thank you again for joining us on this exciting adventure. Your support has been fantastic!

Transformers Toy News

Sorry for not posting much news recently, the reason for this may have become clear if you have seen the recent anouncement by TFNation showing out involvement in the UK convention.  We've been busy on the corporate side of convention organisation, along with creating a custom ticketing system for the show.  This has meant we have once again fallen behind on new stories.  

Here's a catchup on the world of Transformers: Titan Returns / Transformers: Combiner Wars.

Leader Class Soundwave confirmed

Hasbro have showed off CG renders of Titan Returns Leaderclass Soundwave.  Soundwave is a headmaster figure and a remold of Titan Returns Blaster.
 Titan Returns Soundwave

Leo Kaiser

This one came as more of a suprise that Leo Kaiser was getting a release in Combiner Wars.  the figure includes a recolour of Skylynx as Leo Zak and Jagauar.

Transformers Combiner Wars Lio Kaiser


Weibo user z multiplier has posted a few images of art work from what appears to be the packaging of Transformers: Unite Warriors Computron, the Japanese version of what would be the Transformers: Combiner Wars Technobots.  So far Afterburner (a recolour of Unite Warriors Groove), Nosecone and Lightspeed have been shown off.  Also a black and white image of a toy representing Strafe has also been shown.

Unite Warriors Bruticus - potential new Blast Off and Vortex

TFYuki posted an blacked out image of the Transformers: Unite Warriors Bruticus on his Twitter account.  The image seems to show a new possible mold for Blast Off as well as Vortex.

If you are a fan of Transformers: Combiner Wars then stay tuned to some up coming TFNation news.
