In memoriam - Leonard Nimoy

Posted on 02-27-2015 at 03:25 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Spock-Leonard-Nimoy We are sad to report that veteran actor Leonard Nimoy has passed away. Leonard Nimoy provided the voices of Sentinel Prime in Transformers Dark of the Moon and Galvatron in Transformers the Movie in 1986, but he will perhaps be best remembered for playing the role of the science officer of the Enterprise, Mr Spock, in Star Trek, in a role that spanned almost 50 years from his debut as the Vulcan in "The Cage" to his final appearance in "Star Trek Into Darkness".

On behalf of the site, of fans of science fiction, and anyone who has gazed skywards and imagined traveling the spaceways, we offer our condolences to Mr Nimoy's family, and we also warmly remember one of the greatest men to have graced our screens in both his acting and his voice acting roles.

Live long, and prosper.

Mairghread Scott and John Barber talk Combiner Wars

Posted on 02-27-2015 at 03:08 PM by Sol Fury under Comics
TF-Windblade01-CW-cvr-f30de Comic Book Resources have posted a new interview talking about the upcoming Combiner Wars crossover with creators Mairghread Scott and John Barber.

A few of the key points of the interview include:
  • The Combiner Wars will be on two fronts - both an information war, a "war of influence", and a physical war. Starscream is at the heart of all of it, of course - with Optimus, Windblade and Prowl all being key players.
  • Superion has a few new moves - he's described as a cross between "an NBA star and Godzilla"
  • The seeds of Combiner Wars have been sown since Windblade first appeared in Dark Cybertron.
  • On an unrelated note, we'll also be seeing more Transformers of more body types - not only female characters but more diversity in general, more religions, creeds and classes.

Check out the full interview at Comic Book Resources, which includes some spoilers for the background of the crossover event.

Transformers: Legends Game Event - Rules Of Disengagement - UPDATE!

Posted on 02-25-2015 at 02:07 PM by SilverOptimus under Video Games
tumblr_inline_nkapygXkBi1slbwep Pre-Registration for the next DeNA Transformers: Legends Team Event; Rules Of Disengagement is now live.

Event Description:

Aboard a dimly lit DECEPTICON spacecraft, TARN turns to KAON and asks for a situation update. KAON reports that everything is going to plan, and that they should be close to their targets soon. The leader of the DECEPTICON Justice Division nods, and prepares to set their ship down on planet Clemency.

On the surface, BLACK SHADOW seeks refuge in the wrecked hulks left behind from a previous war. On the run for taking bribes from the AUTOBOTS to destroy a fleet of DECEPTICON War Worlds, the Phase Sixer stops and takes a breath inside a ruined ship when he runs across FLYWHEELS and the other Scavengers.

As the group finishes their conversation, a crunching noise outside alerts them to the presence of TESARUS, VOS, and the rest of the DJD. Unwilling to roll over and die, FLYWHEELS and BLACK SHADOW draw their weapons and prepare for battle.

Will BLACK SHADOW and FLYWHEELS escape the clutches of the DECEPTICON Justice Division? Or will TARN and his deadly crew eliminate their targets with extreme prejudice? Find out on TRANSFORMERS Legends - “Rules of Disengagement”!

Update 02/26/2015:

"Dear TRANSFORMERS Legends Fans,

The Ultra Legendary reward cards are here! Beware, he is more powerful than any of his predecessors! Can you defeat the mighty TARN? Can you surpass the strength and power of this new challenge? Who will rise to the top?

Roll out,
