30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 1999

Posted on 04-23-2014 at 12:00 PM by Sol Fury under Beast Wars
1999 1999 was the fifteenth anniversary of the Transformers brand, an occasion that went largely unmarked save for a recognition at Botcon 1999 (which was also the fifth anniversary of Botcon). Beast Wars reached its climax, concluding with a finale written by long time Transformers comics scribe Simon Furman, and the toyline carried on and developed the Transmetals theme with Transmetal 2s. Japan meanwhile got a double-whammy of new series this year with a dub of Beast Wars seasons 2 and 3 as “Beast Wars Metals” as well as the Japan-only series Beast Wars Neo, which had its own toyline populated almost exclusively with new and Japan-only toys.

Age Of Extinction Junkheap Revealed

Posted on 04-22-2014 at 02:14 PM by StayingInTheBox under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
10157412_634906209912910_7466703123670302326_n Coming via the official Transformers Facebook page, we have a really fun and downright cool reveal by Hasbro. In celebration of Earth Day, Hasbro has partnered with Waste Management to release the exclusive Decepticon Junkheap.

Fans might recognize this figure from the background of the third live action film Dark of the Moon when the Decepticons space-bridged to Earth for their final attack. Many collectors have often said how cool it would be to have a design of the garbage truck character and now we'll have it!

Junkheap will be a part of the Power Battler toy line and will be released this fall.

Let us know what you think after the jump!
