Jim Sorenson, who we recently announced will be in attendance at Roll Out Roll Call 2012, has updated his blog with a new Ark Addendum entry entitled "Rumble's Transform and Cheetor's Badge".
As you van probably guess the entry contains the character model for the transformation sequence of Rumble from the Generation One cartoon, where as Cheetor's badge is his suppose to be the police badge he would use within the Transformers Animated universe
We have continue our Character Model gallery updates with 11 new and two update image galleries. All of the character models are from the Beast Wars II Japanese series which was released on DVD for the first time last month.
Jim Sorenson has posted a new additional to his Ark Addendum yesterday called Mircobots Part 1 . Here's Jim to tell you all about it, though remember to click the link to view the character model.
"This week in The Ark Addendum... MICROBOTS! Part 1. No, it's not a
two-part episode, I just have some more designs from the episode.
Unusual ones... but we'll get to that next week.
This week's installment is the backgrounds and props from the episode. As we all remember, the Decepticons discover the remains of their as-yet-unnamed starship, which Beast Wars would dub Nemesis. Inside is the Heart of Cybertron, which powers up Megatron and prompts the Autobots to shrink down, Fantastic Voyage style, and infiltrate Megatron's body.
To me, the stand-out models here are Floro Dery's take on Megatron's insides. He reused some of this imagery for the inside of Unicron a little later. It's just a lovely alien landscape, bizarre and compelling. Hats off to you, sir, hats off."
In a guest post over on Jim Sorenson's blog, Disciples of Boltax, Monzo has posted an article reference and re-producing some storyboards from the first ever cartoon episode of Transformers, More Than Meets The Eye, that were sold on Heritage Auctions way back in 2002. The images show some high resolution scans of ten pages of storyboards which make some interesting analysis.
You can check out the blog here.
Jim Sorenson has updated his blog, Disciples of Boltax, with a brand new The Ark Addendum titled Weirdwolfs Transform. The entry focuses on the extended transformation sequence for Weirdwolf.

Following on from the last news story, and last weeks update, Jim Sorenson has posted The Ark Addendum - The Insecticon Syndrome Part 2 to his blog which continues on with more character models from the Generation One debut episode of the Insecticons.
Here's Jim to explain more:
"This week, it's time for the Ark Addendum from The Insecticon Syndrome,
part two. We get some really nifty interiors and exteriors in this
episode, including the Nova Power Plant and the Iron Mountain military
It was consuming the Nova Power Core that made the Insecticons grow large and unstable. Really, the episode has a very odd structure. The Insecticons are enlisted to help the Decepticons, attack a power plant, grow large, attack the real target, turn on the Decepticons. All the while, they're getting ready to explode... it's just sorta random. It almost feels like two episodes smushed together. As much as I have a nostalgic bone for the classic Transformers, newer shows really are much tighter and more well written."
HK-TF have posted in-hand images of the upcoming Transformers Dark of the Moon Cyberverse Legion Class Soundwave.
From the ground, SOUNDWAVE does not have the total access granted by
orbit, but the high top speed of his new vehicle mode allows him to
intercept and interfere with AUTOBOT communications like never before.
In this Ark Addendum update Jim Sorenson finishes off the animation models from the Masterforce episode Kidnapping!? The Targeted Jumbo Jet with a look at the pre-Destroid flight crew and one last view of the cutting room floor 747. Click here to visit Jim's blog Disciples of Boltax for more insights into this episode.
We have a related project planned very soon
Jim Sorenson has updated his blog, Disciples of Boltax, with a new entry entitled "The Ark Addendum - Boeing 757 and The AllSpark Almanac returns". Here is Jim's description of the entry:
"Today's Addendum, and theme I'll explore for the next couple of weeks, is the Airplane models from the third episode of Masterforce, Kidnapping!? The Targeted Jumbo Jet. The Destron baddies captured airplane-loads of people to turn them into the Destroids, a zombie-like force. Creepy stuff! This is the model for Mont Port Air Flight 308."
Jim also blogs a little more on the return of the AllSpark Almanac and how its return came about.
Following on from the recent announcement of the Japanese release of Beast Wars II, the box art has now been released, and can be viewed below. Beast Wars II was a Japanese exclusive series that was produced to fill the gap between Japanese dubs of Beast Wars and led on to the follow-up series Beast Wars Neo. There has been no official word on whether Beast Wars Neo will be released on DVD though, personally, we are expecting that announcement shortly after the release of Beast Wars II. It is also our prediction that the series will be subbed into English and released via Shout Factory in either late 2012 or during 2013. Again there is no official confirmation of this yet, it is purely a prediction by Transformers At The Moon.
If you like Beast Wars II or want to find out more then why not check out our Toy Gallery where we have photographed many of the figures or our Prototype section that contains some pages from the animations sheets and character designs. You'll be seeing more behind the scenes details from Beast Wars II over the coming months here at Transformers At The Moon as we own hundreds of pages of character models from the show as well as some original scripts.
