30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 2004

Posted on 04-28-2014 at 12:00 PM by Sol Fury under Energon
2004 2004 was the 20th anniversary year of the Transformers and also a disastrous year for the brand. Toys were poorly distributed leading to a long period where very little new product made it to shelves, and two major licensors Dreamwave Comics and 3H who ran the official convention folded. On the positive side Hasbro and Takara pressed ahead with the Alternators / Binaltech line, a well-received collector-oriented line that reimagined classic Transformers are real cars with realistic detailing and interiors, and the 20th anniversary was marked with a special 20th anniversary Optimus Prime, whose production was aided by a fan poll hosted on this website! In Japan, the 20th anniversary Optimus Prime was released as Masterpiece MP-1 Convoy, kicking off the popular Masterpiece line.

Giant Scorpion Transformers Toy Mystery Revealed

Posted on 06-06-2010 at 12:11 PM by SilverOptimus under Energon
Scorponok-Energon Two months ago S250 of the 2005 Boards found out that a Giant Scorpion Transformers Figure is due to be released.

Two hours ago S250 Tweeted to let us know that the toy is actually a repaint of Scorponok (Energon).

No words yet about what toy category it will represent. Will it be for the new Generations toy category? Is this the Airachnid trademark Hasbro filed around the same time they trademarked Transformers: Prime? Only time can tell. But in the meantime, do tell us what you think by hitting the Discuss Button.
