A redeco of iGear's Rager, he's the subject of two special sneak-peek advance reviews by Peaugh and Vangelus. Like their reviews? They are hosting a fan-made media panel at the convention where you can learn a few tricks of the trade!

Transformers Regeneration 1 81 Preview! Out this Wednesday!
Posted by News Fetcher on July 09 '12 at 12:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Alrighty guys, time to get hyped for what is going to be one of the defining events of the year for Transformers - and I don't say that lightly given we've got new comics by James Roberts and John Barber to enjoy along with Fall of Cybertron later in the year. Yes, this week will see the launch of IDW's Transformers Regeneration 1 series. Picking up the original Marvel Comics Transformers series where it left off in 1990 with many of the original creators returning including writer Simon Furman and artist Andy Wildman, this 20 issue series is set to tie up loose ends and give a definite conclusion to the continuity that started it all back in May 1984.

To get you fired up for the new comic, there's a preview - sans speech bubbles - out on Westfield Comics Blog. Then head down to your local comics shop this Wednesday to pick up Regeneration 1 #81 - the beginning of the conclusion of the original Transformers comics continuity, a story that has been 22 years in the making!

Auto Assembly 2012 Transformers the Movie Screening & Paul Eiding Q&A
Posted by News Fetcher on July 08 '12 at 02:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
An update from the good chaps at Auto Assembly tonight - as traditional this year's attendance-record shattering Auto Assembly will have a Friday night screening of Transformers the Movie (that's the original 1986 animated one folks!)

What makes this year's screening so special is that the screening will be preceded by a special introduction by the voice of Generation 1 Perceptor Paul Eiding and followed up with a Q&A with Paul all about the movie. It's a part of the Friday night schedule which you only get to attend if you're on the whole weekend pass for the show - and it is well worth doing because the atmosphere in the room is unrivaled. You've not seen the original Transformers animated movie until you've seen it in a room with a few hundred fellow fans and all joined in a chorus of the most famous lines - it's well worth doing!

Auto Assembly 2012 is less than four weeks away now! It's being held over the weekend of 3-5 August 2012 at the Hilton Metropole in Birmingham, England. Find out more and pre-register for Europe's largest Transformers convention at the Auto Assembly homepage.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Courtesy of Youtuber Walruslaw we have for you a look at the all-new opening and closing credits for the Japanese dub of Transformers Prime. The new opening is TRANSFORMEZ by m-flo, and the new ending is A Little Bit by CLUTCHO. Both are in the same style as the first opening and closing clips for the Japanese dub, rather than the J-Pop stylings of past Transformers shows. Does this more soothing laid back approach work for you? Check out the videos below and decide for yourself:

GIJOE vs Transformers SHOCKWAVE HISS TANK SDCC 2012 Exclusive
Posted by News Fetcher on July 06 '12 at 04:30 PM
By DESTRO from TFW2005:
A special thanks goes out to Hasbro and HPR for sending us a review copy of the soon to be released SDCC 2012 SHOCKWAVE HISS TANK with Decepticon Destro and Devastator B.A.T.!

In the 1980's Marvel Comics produced a four-comic series that told the story of GIJOE and Cobra discovering the existence of the Transformers. This special series briefly brought together these two epic worlds and chronicled the dramatic consequences of this discovery. First there was the "lost episode #5" and now.... The legacy of this meeting continues as the two forces join together again in this exclusive SHOCKWAVE HISS TANK!

The team behind Auto Assembly have stopped by to announce a few things regarding the upcoming convention.

Online MMO games developer Jagex are busy working frantically on their upcoming Transformers Universe MMO. Back in 2011, Jagex supported Auto Assembly by providing us with a great selection of freebies to give away to our attendees, some fantastic t-shirts which we gave away as competition prizes, and donated what is still our highest fundraising auction items ever.

We're proud to announce that Jagex will be supporting Auto Assembly again this year and, they’ll be bringing boxes of stuff exclusive to attendees of Auto Assembly 2012. They will be given away as prizes in various competitions during the convention and we will also be giving away some in a pre-registrant prize draw. To enter this, all you need to do is book your tickets for the convention IN ADVANCE and you'll be entered (as long as you don't have a Partner or Under 6 pass!).

Then just check your welcome pack on the day and if you have a lucky ticket in there, you've won!

Secondly Jagex will be donating something rather special for our charity auction... They will be providing us with a very special print of artwork from the Transformers Universe game signed by the development team! At Auto Assembly 2011, a similar print that was signed by SIXTY members of the team raised an astonishing £350 and we hope that this one will do the same and we want to thank Paul Mayer and Eddy Dew from Jagex for arranging this.

Finally, we will be giving away Transformers Universe art cards to our attendees as part of the goodie bags this year. Featuring one of two different designs, these have great CGI landscapes on them and are great collectibles from the game.

Transformers Collectors Club Online Store Update
Posted by News Fetcher on July 06 '12 at 10:15 AM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
Fun Publications has recently sent members of both the Transformers Collectors Club and the G.I. Joe Collectors Club an update through e-mail regarding the upcoming store update.

This quick update is going out to all members of both clubs.

It will still be a couple more weeks (we don't know exactly how long as we are waiting on the host to finish their work) until our dedicated store server is online.

Once it is ready to go, we will let you know that products in the store have be made active and you will be able to order items from the clubs again.

We do not anticipate that all items will be available in the club stores on opening day so please have patience as we finish the migration from the old e-commerce site to this one.

In addition, to try and avoid a denial of service issue (because of the volume) we will only bring one set of products online at a time.

We will email you when we are going to bring the products online. We are anticipating being ready to go the week of July 23rd, but that could change.

Thanks to both groups for your patience and the two great conventions this year!

Brian
