2005 Boards member TFConvoy has tipped us off to a special Transformers 30th anniversary expo running in Macau
, at The Venetian Macao. It's a special display showing 1,000 toys and other pieces of merchandise along with two-metre tall holograms. The event runs from June 1 all the way through to 5 October 2014, so there is plenty of time to check the event out - The Venetian is even offering a special hotel package
including tickets to the expo.
It sounds like a great event to visit - and lest we forget, many of the original Transformers were also manufactured in Macau, so there is also a great connection between the brand and Macau which makes this celebration expo all the more poignant.Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the world famous "Transformers", The Venetian Macao proudly presents the one-of-a-kind and largest Transformers Expo ever held in Asia, Transformers 30th Anniversary Expo, displaying over 1,000 Transformers figures and fans' collectibles, world debut of the two-metre tall Transformers holograms, showing the development of the Autobots throughout the past three decades all in one room.Read Replies (0)

Third party group Toyworld, has finally provided fans of their T-Series (aka G1 Throttlebots) with an update. Seen on their website
is a group shot of the three previously released figures with the prototypes of the next two in vehicle mode. Shown alongside Trace, Aurora and Grind Rod are unofficial versions of Freeway
. Both characters are receiving modern alternate modes in the forms of a Mini Cooper Sport Coupe and a Conquest Knight XV. No robots mode images just yet. What is interesting about this update is that originally when Grind Rod was released, a teaser showed five figures total. Later, when Trace and Aurora released, the teaser image was updated to include six figures. The sixth, presumably being Goldbug, is now left out once again. These figures are still rumored to be able to combine. So will we be seeing a five figure Throttlebot combiner? Or is Toyworld holding back on the most famous and recognizable Throttlebot for a final release?

Well, looks like Imagine Dragons is not the only popular music personality that will work on Transformers 4 Age of Extinction.
Many popular websites including Billboard
is reporting that Skrillex is currently working on sound design for the movie. He says he's creating ''the craziest Skrillex sounds he could ever make." And he was "working on sounds for the dinobots. according to Toronto Sun.
We don't know the exact details of his involvement, but you can discuss the news on our boards as we try to get more info about it.Read Replies (0)

Sightings news for you this morning via Australia! It looks like the Leader Class AOE Bumblebee as been purchased at Australia Retail. For those who do not recall, this figure is the Dark of the Moon Leader Class mold with a slightly different deco and without the massive Mech-Tech weapon it previously came with.
Hat tip to TFW2005 boards member Starscream Gaga
for providing some images of the packaging as well as confirming the retail price of $89 in Australia
. Interesting to note is the packaging size of this figure, which is significantly larger than the other Leader Class Optimus Prime and Grimlock figures; we can also see in the images provided the size difference between the two movie figures themselves.
Will you be adding this Bumblebee to your shelves? Check out the images after the jump.Read Replies (0)
