Sila1 Boom! And the news keeps on coming! Avid traffic fans and various Transformer Fans shall now exclaim out tonight in triumph as it appears as though Nonnef is going to be taking TreadShotA1's Alert Knight model from Shapeways into full production. What that means I am not skilled enough to tell you, but if it means we have a Signal Light transformer. I myself will be quite happy to make him a Decepticon and make sure every Autobot get's a red light. Check out the picture, and discuss, after the jump!

Alert Knight is an homage to Signal Lancer, a transformer from Transformers Cybertron, and no toy has been made of him previous to TreadShotA1's Shapeways Kit. So rejoice! REJOICE!

Posted on 05-04-2015 at 12:07 PM by Joe Moore under Featured Ebay Auctions
G1-Soundwave-Soap There's been a ton of fun, strange and truly unique items to bear the Transformers license over the years. Some have made complete sense, such as games, school supplies and such. While other items, like soap bars and singing toothbrushes are only sought by the most dedicated of collectors. Today (since I was MIA on Friday) we bring a few of those oddity items that you can own. Check out the links below.

Unite Warriors Devastator Coming?

Posted on 05-04-2015 at 08:40 AM by Joe Moore under Japanese Transformers
Green-Robo-Coming-Soon Thanks to forum member optimalprimus, we see that TF Yuki has tweeted out a new teaser pic. Is it possibly the first teaser of a Japanese Unite Warriors Devastator? We'll surely find out soon enough, but it will likely surprise no one to see a Takara version of the highly anticipated figure. We'll have more as it becomes available.

Transformers: Robots In Disguise Cast & Crew Interviews On Afterbuzz TV

Posted on 05-04-2015 at 08:13 AM by SilverOptimus under Robots In Disguise (201x)
Transformers-Robots-In-Disguise Here's something which flew under our radar until a TFW2005 fan from Twitter kindly pointed us in the right direction.

It seems as though for almost every episode of Transformers: Robots In Disguise being aired in US, popular You Tube show Afterbuzz TV had been doing reviews and special interviews with the creators and cast of the show. Special shout-out should be given to Megan Salinas, Emma Fyffe, Alexis Torres, and Katie Cullen for hosting the show with great content.

So far the following videos are available on You Tube:
  • Episode 1
  • Episode 3 & 4: Mitchell Whitfield (Voice Actor for Fixit) and Roger Craig Smith (Voice Actor for Minicons).
  • Episode 5: Director Todd Waterman and Supervising Director Dave Hartman.
  • Episode 6: Concept artists and Designers Jose Lopez, Augusto Barranco, and Walter Gatus.

You find some cool info in there such as how the character design processes went, what happens during voice acting and what is the future for the show. One of the tidbits revealed was the fact that the team is now halfway through making Season 2.

We've embedded the videos with this news post. Take a look at them, after the jump. Don't forget to leave a comment.
