Transformers-Legends-Autobot-Run Pre-registration for the Transformers: Legends team event Autobot Run is now live. The event will start in 5 hours.

Event Synopsis:
"After Spike raises the suggestion that the Autobots could put on a charity race, Silverstreak and Trailbreaker talk their comrades into it. They begin the race unaware that the Constructicons have created a Transfixatron, and during the race, the device is used on the unsuspecting Autobots. The Decepticons soon reveal themselves, and it's then that the Autobots discover they're unable to transform to robot mode."

We have also noticed that Gold/Silver Medals are now removed from the Point Rewards.

10370818_901940083167617_3833459542118290041_n There's even more love for Masterpiece Star Saber now! Via Hobbybase on Facebook, we can share with you these magazine scans. They show off Masterpiece Star Saber's glorious color prototype in all its glory - poseability, gimmicks, accessories, details and more are highlighted here.

The first character revealed is the Autobot, Outsider. The Universe bio page gives more description to the Transformer: "Beaming in and out of battle in the blink of an eye, Outsider utilizes unique teleport abilities to dodge bullets with his tactical ingenuity. Don’t let his 60’s style fool you, this Autobot isn’t as peaceful as he looks."

The second character reveal is the Decepticon Pandemic. Again thanks to the Universe bio for providing us with more detail about this Con: "This warrior has a fighting style that is infectious! Taking pleasure in poisoning anyone not blessed with his own sharp style, this snake like Decepticon sinks his fangs into his enemies."

Angry Birds: Transformers - Chuck As Bumblebee

Posted on 09-23-2014 at 09:45 AM by SilverOptimus under Video Games
RovioMobile updated their YouTube channel with a brand new Angry Birds: Transformers clip, this time showing off Chuck as Bumblebee. His design is similar to the Live Action Movie Bumblebee/Transformers: Prime Bumblebee but with a G1 head.

"Chuck has been transformed from the fastest bird flying into the fastest bot on four wheels!

Bumblebee has a knack for getting himself into trouble, but his lightning-fast reflexes, and bravery can get him out of any sticky situation. Of course an overactive trigger finger helps too!

Help the Autobirds and Deceptihogs save Piggy Island in a brand new 3D shoot ‘em up adventure, coming to iOS October 15 and Google Play October 30!

Legends Brainstorm, Swerve and Tailgate - New Figure King Magazine Images

Posted on 09-22-2014 at 08:22 AM by StayingInTheBox under Japanese Transformers
kaX7pcQ Hat tip to TFW2005 boards member Type-R for providing an in hand scan of Takara's Legends Brainstorm, Swerve and Tailgate from the latest Figure King Magazine. Within the scan we can notice a few differences between the Hasbro and Takara releases of the characters. Brainstorm's deco is darker overall replacing Hasbro's grays with with more black. Swerve features a darker red and his mini-con partner's deco is completely new ditching the Hasbro blue for a predominant white color scheme. Similarly, Tailgate continues the darker color layout with a much darker blue compared to Hasbro's.

We'll hopefully be able to see more clearly once these Legends figures are scanned in high-res or in hand reviews are available.

For now, check out the new images after the jump.
