30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 2008

Posted on 05-02-2014 at 12:00 PM by Sol Fury under Animated
2008 Moving from strength to strength, Hasbro introduced a new Transformers cartoon, one that was written in the west and co-produced with Cartoon Network. This new series was called Transformers Animated, and went with a radical change to the established art style of what had gone before, polarizing opinions from the very first glimpse of the series – though clever writing meant it quickly became a well-loved show. Its toyline was delayed, though, thanks to retailers demanding more movie toys on store pegs. Fans who disliked the new take in Transformers Animated were not left out in the cold either, as Hasbro recognized the success of the Classics series and brought out a new Classics styled series under the name of Transformers Universe, which blended redecos with Classics style reinterpretations of the original characters. Last but not least, IDW proclaimed “All Hail Megatron” as they carried out a soft-reboot of their Transformers continuity.

JackpotRobot36 For our next Transformers toy gallery update, we would like to draw to your attention a new release from the Transformers Collectors Club's Subscription Service, Transformers Animated Jackpot!

TFW Unreleased Animated Activators Electromagnetic Soundwave Gallery

Posted on 07-27-2013 at 06:44 AM by Sol Fury under Animated
ElectromagneticSoundwaveRobot10 Today we want to share with all of you with something a bit special - a toy that never made it to general US retail! For your enjoyment today, we have a look at the never-released Transformers Animated Activators Electromagnetic Soundwave.

Soundwave in Transformers Animated, rather than being a member of Megatron's Decepticons, was a creation of the human genius Isaac Sumdac which had evolved and taken on a life of his own through exposure to the Allspark powered key held by Sumdac's daughter, Sari. The "Electromagnetic" Soundwave was featured prominently in the cliffhanger ending of the season 3 Transformers Animated episode as a gigantic version of the Decepticon. This makes it more ironic that the redeco was used on the smaller version of Soundwave.

As a toy, the deco looks very sharp. The white and teal in vehicle mode go together nicely, and the purple windows give the vehicle a bit of personality. Robot mode adds more black into the mix, which contrasts nicely against the white and creates a unique and fun deco. As far as the toy itself goes, Soundwave is simple to transform, moving between modes in less than five steps, and featuring good all round articulation including elbow and knee swivels, lateral outward movement on the shoulders and full movement on the head.

Overall, Electromagnetic Soundwave is a fun little toy with a nice and different deco. A few have been appearing on eBay lately for reasonable prices, if you are a fan of Animated or a fan of Soundwave, you definitely ought to look into it.

Open the link below for a look at the unreleased Transformers toy goodness!

Transformers Animated Comes to The Hub

Posted on 06-19-2012 at 09:00 AM by ORIO under Animated
Transformers_Animated_Autobots_Grou Nickandmore.com has apparently recieved a press release from the Hub with great news for Transformers fans! Transformers Animated will be coming to the Hub on July 9th!

Two older G.I. Joe and Transformers series will be making their way to The Hub starting this July.

The 26-episode anime series G.I. Joe: Sigma 6 will join The Hub on Monday, July 9 at 4:30 p.m. ET. The series aired on 4Kids TV (on FOX) in the U.S. from 2005-06.

In the series America’s elite military force enters a new chapter of battling against the ruthless and power hungry terrorist organization COBRA. A new covert team of Joes, SIGMA 6, has been created to hunt down COBRA and stop its insidious plots for world domination.

Also joining The Hub on Monday, July 9 is Transformers: Animated airing at 5:30 p.m. ET. This animated series aired on Cartoon Network from 2007-09 and had 42 episodes.

When the battle to protect the powerful Allspark from the Decepticons strands Optimus Prime and his team of Autobots on Earth, they become superheroes to the humans they’ve vowed to defend from anyone – or anything – that threatens their way of life.

Stay tuned for more information on both series, including other air times for each.

Animated Electromagnetic Soundwave Images

Posted on 09-26-2011 at 11:56 AM by Sol Fury under Animated
Electromagnetic-Soundwave-1 Here's something I never thought we'd get to see - Ebay seller amoronline has listed an auction for the never-released Transformers Animated Activators Electromagnetic Soundwave. Electromagnetic Soundwave was a white recolor of the original Activators Soundwave, previously revealed when his instructions surfaced on Hasbro's website. His deco appeared in the two part "Human Error" storyline.

Like many later Transformers Animated releases, Electromagnetic Soundwave never made it past a handful of test shots. To be honest I never expected to see what the final product was meant to be like - so getting to see this, even if we can never own it, is a nice surprise.

Animated Menasor Official Head Design

Posted on 08-05-2011 at 12:04 PM by Sol Fury under Animated
Animated-Menasor-Head There's been some buzz this past week about what Animated Menasor's head should look like, thanks to the G1Upper's Animated Menasor head sketches. Now we have a sketch from the man himself, Derrick J. Wyatt, of what he thinks Animated Menasor's head looks like. Given Derrick J. Wyatt worked with Fun Publications to design the Animated Stunticons, and was the character designer for Transformers Animated, this is as close to a canonical head design for Animated Menasor as we are ever likely to see.

Click on the link above to check it out - it's very different from the G1Upper designs, and blends in the classic Menasor helmet look with the modern Animated Motormaster facial hair.
