Shown off at Dengeki's 20th anniversary festival at Makuhari Messe convention centre are three variants on the remolded Alternity Convoy body type - one as Convoy / Optimus Prime himself, with a green and white version shown representing a Fortress Maximus Super GT and a Star Saber Super GT in blue. The names are apparently GT-R Prime, GT-R Maximus and GT-R Saber respectively.
Check out the images of Saber and Maximus by reading on with this story. There's also three girls pictured in the colors of the three robots - we're not sure if these are meant to be driver / partner figures a la the Binaltech Asterisk / Human Alliance series or merely a part of the series marketing and backstory.Read Replies (0)

Here is something extremely unexpected - it seems that the spirit of the Transformers Disney Label subline is being carried on by Bandai & Tamashii Nations - and that they are bringing it back with a combiner. This Japanese magazine scan, which we saw posted on Facebook by Autobase Aichi
, shows mecha versions of Micky Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald and Daisy Duck, Goofy and Pluto merging into a single robot mode. The mecha share a few design cues with the original Disney label versions of the characters. By appearances, Goofy and Pluto are forming legs, Donald and Daisy the arms, Micky the chest and Minnie we're not entirely sure. The head is even formed by Steamboat Willie, from the first Micky Mouse cartoon!
We've since had confirmation, by way of the Cybergundam blog
, that this is a Bandai / Tamashii Nations release rather than a new Disney Label item.Read Replies (0)

Things are heating up as Michael Bay replies back to Hugo Weaving regarding his statement
on voice acting for Megatron.
It is said that the director has posted on his official website, but the post Collider pointing to is missing. However, Collider has posted a copy
of the statement by Mr. Bay:"Do you ever get sick of actors that make $15 million a picture, or even $200,000 for voiceover work that took a brisk one hour and 43 minutes to complete, and then complain about their jobs? With all the problems facing our world today, do these grumbling thespians really think people reading the news actually care about trivial complaints that their job wasn’t ‘artistic enough” or “fulfilling enough”? I guess The Hollywood Reporter thinks so.
What happened to people who had integrity, who did a job, got paid for their hard work, and just smiled afterward? Be happy you even have a job – let alone a job that pays you more than 98% of the people in America.
I have a wonderful idea for all those whiners: They can give their “unhappy job money” to a wonderful Elephant Rescue. It’s the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Africa. I will match the funds they donate."
This may look like drama, but last time when this kind of thing happened (*cough*Megan Fox*cough*) we ended up with a new character. Which means we could end up with no Megatron or have Galvatron instead (or somebody else voicing Megatron). What do you think? Let your voice heard over at the Discussion Thread.Read Replies (0)
