Transformers Cartoons

Transformers Earthspark is coming to larger audiences within the UK as it's been announced that the show will start next week on CBBC and iPlayer. CBBC has an average monthly viewership of 2.8 million within the UK with iPlayer increasing this number significantly. That's double it's closest rival CITV, four time the reason of Cartoon Network (including +1) and five times that of nickelodeon (inc +1) within the UK. Read on for the press release.

Hasbro’s global entertainment studio, Entertainment One (eOne), has signed a deal with BBC to broadcast season one of the animated series Transformers: EarthSpark for audiences in the UK. The first ten episodes will launch on July 25th on CBBC, from Monday to Thursday, and also be available to stream on BBC iPlayer.

Following the release of the first batch of episodes, additional new Transformers: EarthSpark content will continue to roll out on the BBC platforms.

Transformers: EarthSpark, co-produced by Paramount, introduces a new generation of Transformers robots – the first to be born on Earth. Together with the human Malto family who welcomes them in and cares for them, they’ll redefine what it means to be a family. Set on present-day Earth, Transformers: EarthSpark centres on two human kids as they forge a connection with Transformers bots like never before and work alongside fan favourites like Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.

“We’re delighted to work with our friends at BBC to have kids and families enjoy the captivating Transformers: EarthSpark series,” said Monica Candiani, EVP Content Sales at eOne. “More and more, we’re seeing the heartfelt excitement kids get when they see characters and storylines onscreen that reflect their own lives and experiences. This is the kind of joy we’ve been seeing with Transformers: EarthSpark, and we hope to bring these important feelings of inclusivity to families in the UK, while of course delivering on the action and fun that Transformers has brought to multi-generational audiences for nearly 40 years.”

Transformers: EarthSpark has been greenlit for a second season.

Earlier this year, eOne announced broadcast deals with global broadcast partners to air Transformers: EarthSpark, including Gulli in France, Clan in Spain, Super! In Italy, NRK in Norway, DR in Denmark, TV3 and TV8 in the Baltics, TV Azteca in Mexico, TV Cultura in Brazil, Viu TV in Hong Kong, Channel 5 in Singapore, RTV in Indonesia and TV9 in Malaysia. Episodes will launch throughout 2023 in all of these markets.

Transformers Interviews and Articles

Here at Transformers At The Moon we are currently working on various projects including rebuilding this website, The,, an archival project on UK Transformers prices, toy releases, store released, the "lead paint" story, TFNation event planning, the Visionaries coffee table book and several others. Well it pleases me that the first project is now ready to share and that is thanks to former head of Hasbro Europe's boys toys, Andy Couzens, we have been able to recreate their internal 1989 European Lineplan Development document that shows dropped, continuing and new items that came onto various European markets in 1989.  The document has been recreated in full as a spreadsheet and will be added to if/when we have access to further documents.

The document includes the number of units ordered by UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland and distributors for each product in 1988 and 1989. From this you can tell which items were not onl available in each territory and their quantity but also it gives insight into how sales were going for the product based on whether it was to be dropped, decreased in number or increased.

It also shows how some  some countries preferred certain items to others or were behind in product releases as was the case with G.I.Joe (Action Force) in France compared with the UK.

The numbers are believed to be in units of 1,000 though that is currently being tripled checked as it may be tens of thousands due to Andy's recollection that the minimum order was 5,000 units for one country as long as other countries also placed some orders.

Some items were released across Europe but were only intended for one or two markets where the demand was high enough. However if those markets could not fulfil the minimum order from Hasbro US themselves they had to bargin with other European divisions for them to also order n amount of the stock in order to reach the minimum requirement. This meant that some markets would order toys even though they had little demand for them but had increased demand for other types of toys. From what I'm told Spain historically was less interested in Transformers but more interested in dolls but they would often take orders in order for other countries to get the product they wanted on shelves.

The document covers some items from Transformers, G.I-Joe, Robotix as well as Pipeworks.

Transformers Convention News
Following on from Auto Assembly 2005 yesterday here's a very short, extremely low quality, 240p is the best it can do, brief video from Transforce 2004 which was the Transformers convention that took place in Mitcham Leisure Centre in August 2004.
The video is just over a minute & was taken when I "walked the queue" prior to doors opening.
It was the 1st Transforce for 2 years & 2nd most attendee European Transformers convention at the time (329). Transforce '02 (400attendees) and jAuto Assembly 2004 (320 attendees).
Simon Furman, Andrew Wildman and Geoff Anderson were all guests, for the event but unknown to most attendees Anne Bryant, who was in the UK at the time, attendee as a walk-in attendee to get see what was happening.
We bought normal tickets for the day but ended up arriving early to help out The Spacebridge Store with set-up which allowed me to record part of the setup in the hall. It was our first event attending as helpers which we continue doing to this day at TFNation.

Transformers Convention News

Let's go back in time to Auto Assembly 2005 and some grainy footage we recorded from the event. I don't even remember which video camera we had at the time but it was probably still a tape one.

You'll no doubt recognise some of the traders and guests including Neil Kaplan, Simon Furman, Andrew Wildman, Simon Williams, Jason Cardy, The Space-Bridge, Geekology, Xyber Toys and of course the gents running the show Sven Harvey and Simon Plumbe.

The venue no longer exists, the Clarendon Suites but the memories remain.

It was the first year we put on a display at a convention, something that continued through until 2016 when we stopped. Maybe we'll start doing some again. At that event we bought along our Lucky Draw figures along with the lunchtime specials.

By 2009, when we last put on a Lucky Draw display, we needed to hire two large cabinets whereas then we uses two small custom cases which we still have kicking around somewhere

Transformers Convention News

As a small business ourselves, we know all too well how difficult recent times have been for our Traders and Forge artists.

Transformers Convention News

TFNation have announced their initial schedule for the 3-day August convention in 2023. You can read the full press release below.


- TFNation 2023 tickets will be available for purchase at 12:00 Midday (GMT) on Saturday 3rd December 2022.
- TFNation has secured discount rate rooms at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel.
- Discount rate bedroom will be available for purchase at 12:00 Midday (GMT) on Saturday 4th March 2023.


Whether you're a returning TFNational, or a first-time convention-goer, we know hotel accommodation is an important part of your TFN planning. This year will be a little different to previous years, so please take a moment to read this post, which we hope will be helpful for you.



The bedroom rates offered to us slightly increase in price each year, to account for things like inflation and hotel running costs. This year the price change will be larger, partly because of price rises we are all facing, and partly to reflect the fact that TFNation's previous hotel rates were all negotiated as far back as 2018/2019. 

With that in mind, the Hilton Birmingham Metropole has offered the following discounted rates to TFNation 2023 ticket holders;

£100.00 per night - Single bedroom (for single occupancy), including breakfast.

£120.00 per night - Double bedroom (for single occupancy), including breakfast.

£150.00 per night - Double or Twin bedroom (for double occupancy), including breakfast.

£170.00 per night - Family bedroom (for two adults and two children), including breakfast.

These rates are higher than those you've paid in the past - there's no sugar coating that, but we hope they will still work for many of you.

In truth, part of the reason why we delayed announcing TFNation 2023 for so long is because we've been working together with the Hilton to put together a package which we think will still work for our attendees in this new post-pandemic era for the hospitality industry. For example, most hotels and events are now moving into a world where breakfasts are paid on top of the room price; for now at least, we're pleased to confirm we've saved your bacon (and, suitably-cherished, meat-free alternatives). We appreciate costs have risen, but compared to public prices, we feel these rates still represent a good deal for TFNationals who want to stay on site.

 (All prices are correct at the time of writing. All prices are quoted inclusive of VAT)


To give you a little time to plan, and to enjoy your robot-filled holidays, TFNation's discount rate bedrooms will be available for purchase at 12:00 Midday (GMT) on Saturday 4th March 2023. We will make another post closer to the time to let ticket holders know how to book their rooms.

For Traders and Forge Stall Holders (who have paid their invoices) we will email you separately with instructions for booking your bedrooms in due course, as the process is a little different for you.


You will need to pay a deposit at the time of booking, equivalent to the price of one night in your room (this will then be counted towards the full price you will need to pay, at the hotel). 

The deposit will be non-refundable and non-transferable, so it's important that you only book a room if you are confident you will make the event. 

You will not need to pay for the rest of your stay until you are at the hotel; if you have a credit card, you will not need to pay until check out. If you do not have a credit card, you will need to pay at check in.


On Saturday 4th March 2023 we will add a button to your account page, will which allow you to access the new booking portal. We'll also make another post before then, just to remind you.

It's really important that you please check your password first as you will need to log in with the same account you used to buy your TFNation 2023 tickets - if you create a new account instead, the system won't know you've bought tickets, so it won't give you access to the booking portal.


Over the years, we know many of you have decided to extend your stay at the hotel, be that to assist with your travel plans or just so you can soak up a little more of the TFN spirit. Naturally, we love this, but it is important to remember that TFNation is a three day event; this means it is fully down to the hotel's discretion as to whether or not the discount rate can be extended to other nights - in turn, that usually comes down to which events are running either side of TFNation.


Sadly not. You must first buy a ticket to qualify to use the bedroom portal, but once you're in, bedrooms are sold subject to availability.

Each year we remind our attendees that even though the Metropole is the UK's largest events hotel outside of London, there are more than twice as many TFNationals as there are bedrooms. That means even before we factor in other events and members of the public, it is sadly not possible to guarantee everybody a room.

This year in particular, with a first ever UK convention appearance for Susan Blu, we anticipate bedrooms will sell out very quickly, so we encourage you to have your plans ready as early as you can.


The Hilton computer is smart, but it's no Teletraan-1. Think of it like a game of connect four (or, more likely three, for most people). If you want a room for three nights, and ALL three nights are available, then the computer will be happy and you'll get your room. But if ANY one of those three nights is not available, you'll get an error message. 

The trick is to start small. Try one day at a time. By process of elimination, you'll see which day is the culprit! Book the nights you can - remember, you've got until August to fill any gaps and rooms do free up as people change their plans.


This is unlikely - it has happened, but it's not really something we can bank on as it's dependant on how other events sell. 

What does often happen, however, is people tend to cancel their bookings in the first few weeks (probably when they realise their friend has also booked a room and they can share). So keep checking back, because if somebody drops out, you might get lucky and grab that room! You can keep checking right up until the weekend of the convention.


Residents parking at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole is £12.00 per night, with an increased day rate for non-residents. Additional parking is also available at the nearby NEC and Resorts World, though we would encourage you to check the rates before you travel.


If you're not lucky enough to grab your preferred room at the Hilton, don't panic! You can still have a fantastic time visiting TFNation! The NEC area has lots of hotels within a short distance of the convention, including the new Hilton Garden Inn on the doorstep of the airport. We'll also have some alternative hotel information on our website.

Pro-tip! Hotels usually reserve some rooms for public sale. So join Hilton Honors as a backup (it's free!).  Just remember to check the terms of any rooms you book, as they may be different to the TFNation deal.

Transformers Convention News

TFNation have announced the huge news that Su Blue will be their headline guest for TFNation  2023, the 3-day Transfomers convention that takes place in Birmingham England each August! You can read the full press release below.


- G1 Arcee Actor and Transformers Voice Director, Susan Blu, is coming to TFNation 2023!
- Autograph opportunity included within your regular ticket price, though demand may exceed available time.
- Optional Legend Pass available, to guarantee a signing slot, photograph and more.
- All ticket sales starting 3rd December 2022.
- Bedroom announcement to follow, with bedroom sales from early 2023.


We're delighted to announce renowned voice actor and director Susan Blu will be joining us at TFNation 2023 for her first ever UK convention appearance!

Susan first became known to Transformers fans when she was cast as the forceful female Autobot, Arcee, in 1986's The Transformers: The Movie. She would continue to portray the character in seasons three and four of the original cartoon, as well as voicing numerous other characters, most notably Earth Defence Command Officer Marissa Faireborn. Susan would return to the role of Arcee after 21 years for the fan-favourite series, Transformers: Animated.

Though TFNationals will remember her most fondly as Arcee, Susan is an accomplished actor with many memorable roles under her belt, including Stormer and Lindsay Pierce from Jem, Galadria from Visionaries, Buttons from My Little Pony and Granny Smurf from The Smurfs! In the world of the Cybertronians her additional roles include Transmutate from Beast Wars and Flareup from Transformers: Animated. If you're made of sterner stuff, you can see her on screen in Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood!

Acting, however, was only the start of Susan's incredibly successful career. Away from the microphone (but not too far away!) she progressed to numerous roles including Voice Director, Dialogue Director and Casting Director on well-known shows such as Extreme Ghostbusters and the 1987 and 2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.

Following her time on the Sunbow produced Transformers cartoon, Susan went on to work as Voice Director on Beast Wars, Beast Machines and season one of Transformers: Prime. She also worked as Casting Director on Transformers: Animated. If you're a Transformers fan, you've almost certainly enjoyed Susan's incredible contributions over several decades. 

Susan is excited to meet all of you and we know you'll give her an incredibly warm TFNation welcome!

 (Please note: Susan Blu, like all guests, appears at TFNation strictly subject to professional commitments, and all advertised guest lists are subject to change without notice. All panel rooms are subject to capacity limits. Terms and Conditions of sale apply on this small world and all others, Cybertron being no exception) 


We know meeting Susan Blu at TFNation is a real bucket-list item for many of our attendees, so we're thrilled to be able to bring this opportunity to you.

Susan is incredibly friendly and is excited to attend TFNation and meet as many of you as possible; however, it's important for us to manage the situation correctly as we expect Susan to be one of our most popular guests to date.

With our guest’s comfort, the attendee experience, and event logistics in mind, we've decided the best way to proceed is to provide an additional, optional offering for this special event, which we're calling The Legend Pass. You don't need to buy this for a chance of meeting Susan, but The Legend Pass will enable you to secure a guaranteed slot and some extra goodies to mark the occasion. 

The Legend Pass is a new offering for TFNation, so below you'll find a full explanation; we've also written a Legend Pass FAQ and a General TFNation 2023 FAQ which will hopefully answer any questions you may have.  Please read them both carefully to ensure, as Arcee might say… you understand the situation.  

(Limited Edition)

Hero Collector and Hasbro Join Forces

To Bring Transformers Chess To Kickstarter

(London, UK – 13 August, 2021) Hero Collector – award-winning designers and publishers of high-quality collectibles from across the worlds of pop culture – is joining forces with Hasbro to launch their first ever Kickstarter campaign: an all-new Transformers Chess Set!

This epic chess set will feature 32 unique game pieces – 16 for the heroic Autobots and 16 for the villainous Decepticons – created specifically for the Kickstarter and modelled on the classic 1980s Generation One (G1) Transformers animated cartoon! Each model is digitally sculpted, then cast in metallic resin and painted by hand. The sculpts, which show the Transformers in their robot form, were developed with Hasbro and are based on the original animation designs and careful study of the animated series.

Standing 4-6” tall on a base marked with the symbol for the relevant chess piece, these robotic warriors will wage war on an exclusive Cybertron-themed chess board, with color-coded symbols in Autobot red or Decepticon purple. These two warring factions include such iconic characters as:

  • Autobot King: Optimus Prime. The beloved commander of the Autobots, Optimus Prime championed freedom in countless clashes across Cybertron – and Earth, where he adopted his famous truck alternate mode.

  • Autobot Knight: Hot Rod. A young and brash Autobot with a race car alt-mode, Hot Rod eventually grew to lead the Autobots – as Rodimus Prime!

  • Autobot Pawn: Bumblebee. The heart of the Autobots, Bumblebee was quick to befriend their human allies in his iconic yellow beetle alt-mode.

  • Autobot Pawn: Prowl. The surly strategist of the Autobots, Prowl’s police car alt-mode suited his no-nonsense personality.

  • Decepticon King: Megatron. The feared leader and founder of the Decepticons, and the eternal nemesis of Optimus Prime, Megatron sought nothing less than complete iron-fisted domination of Cybertron!

  • Decepticon Queen: Starscream. The scheming second-in-command of the Decepticons, Starscream constantly plotted to overthrow Megatron.

  • Decepticon Knight: Soundwave. The loyal comms officer of the Decepticons, Soundwave gathered intelligence using his trio of cassette-minions.

  • Decepticon Knight: Shockwave. The ops commander of the Decepticons, Shockwave’s cold logic and laser-turret mode made him a deadly threat.

This Kickstarter launches on 13 August, 2021 – with a delivery date of Q4 2022. A variety of backer gifts are planned for fans who want to go the distance in bringing this game to life – including a Transformers pin badge, Transformers profile book, and more exclusive Gen-1 chess pieces!
