The next DeNA Transformers: Legends event; Key To Vector Sigma: Part 2 is now live. This event continues where Part 1
left off, one month ago.
Though unspecified on the official description, Transformers fans have informed that DeNA has made some changes for this event. First of all the Raid Boss health has been increased significantly. Secondly, the reward structure has been changed (ex: T1 players will now receive R5 Evolution Cards of Arielbots instead of the R8 cards). Finally, the Battle Cube Farming seems to have been discontinued despite the fact that DeNA stating previously that the Raid Boss Events will serve as the primary source of Battle Cube Farming.
Official Description:Back on Earth, the DECEPTICONS discover that the key to Vector Sigma is able to transmute whatever it touches into metal. Knowing that they have this, and the might of MENASOR, the DECEPTICONS decide that they will turn the Earth into a new Cybertron.
Teletraan 1 detects the energy of the key being used to convert parts of the area around a major northwestern city into metal, and alerts the AUTOBOTS. The AERIALBOTS join their new allies and head there, intent on stopping the DECEPTICONS from destroying the Earth’s environment with the key.
The STUNTICONS, upon seeing their hated rivals among their newly arrived enemies, charge towards them, intent on turning them into scrap. An instant later, a mighty battle erupts around them and the AERIALBOTS, leaving members of both factions out of commission.

There have been several screenings of the much beloved 1986 Transformers movie lately and Topless Robot
recently were lucky enough to get a Q&A with some of the creators. At this particular screening they spoke with the movie's story consultant Flint Dille, voice director Wally Burr and voice actors Neil Ross and Michael Bell about its enduring legacy. They cover many topics including the late Leonard Nimoy and Orson Welles, voice acting, having to make the Transformers edgier than the GoBots and ultimately, killing Optimus Prime.
We've mirrored the whole Q & A session for you and you can view it by clicking the title bar. Or you can watch it in it's entirety below courtesy of RealistikkVideos

Sad news comes to us regarding Europe's largest Transformers convention, Auto Assembly. It has been announced that Auto Assembly 2015 will be the last ever Auto Assembly
Founded in 2000, with its first convention held on 22 October 2000, Auto Assembly's first convention attracted just 31 guests, but the years that followed saw the convention bloom into the largest Transformers convention in Europe. What started out as a one-day event became a full weekend event, over the years playing host to the likes of David Kaye, Garry Chalk, Scott McNeil, Townsend Coleman, Sumalee Montano, Gregg Berger, Dan Gilvezan and many more - a veritable who's who of Transformers talent, to say nothing of the many artists and creators who have also attended over the years.
The reasons for drawing Auto Assembly to a close are nothing sinister, but merely the most human reasons of all. Faced with increasingly busy daily lives, and other concerns, the team has decided not to compromise on the quality of the conventions, but to go out on a high note with what they hope will be the biggest and best Auto Assembly yet.
The final Auto Assembly will be held at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel in Birmingham, England, on 21st - 23rd August 2015. Join us in seeing out Europe's largest Transformers convention with a bang! Find out more and pre-register today at the Auto Assembly homepage

Another size is a "cyber 7 Assorted", 7 inches (about 18 cm). Megatron to deform in tanks has been posted. Perhaps, the other day Starscream, which was exhibited in special events of the Indianapolis Children's Museum also, I will think or not than a lineup of seven inches size of series.
