Transformers.com Updated to Transformers Prime / Bot Shots Skin
Posted by News Fetcher on March 02 '12 at 05:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Hasbro's rolling out with more Transformers Prime material on the official Transformers website. Today the Dark of the Moon theme to Transformers.com bowed out, to be replaced with a blue Transformers Prime / Bot Shots theme. The character bars along the top are now Transformers Prime instead of Dark of the Moon, with Bot Shots Optimus and Megatron in the background. It's a nice and fresh look for the site.

Right now as with the Bot Shots game, it's just a new skin with more content such as character bios to follow. Keep watching Transformers.com for more material being added in the coming weeks.

Transformers Prime Insecticon Concept Art
Posted by News Fetcher on March 01 '12 at 03:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The official Transformers Facebook page has uploaded concept artwork of the Insecticon from Transformers Prime! Officially confirming what we had deduced from educated guesswork, it's the creature seen briefly at the end of Orion Pax Part 2 and in the promo picture for Part 3. This concept artwork gives some suggestion on how the insectoid limbs function, as well as (far right) a look at the creature without these limbs.

Orion Pax Part 3 airs this Saturday, 3 March on The Hub at 8:30 ET | 5:30 PT.

Transformers Bot Shots Online Game Launched
Posted by News Fetcher on March 01 '12 at 02:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Transformers Bot Shots online game has launched! Right now it's still in an early stage, with some features locked out "coming in May 2012", but the basic game is present and rather addictive!

Reading around through the webpage, 2005 boards member ZacWilliam has also sniffed out the link between this online game and the toyline on the shelves:

Sometime before May the Bot Shots toys will all start to come with a slip of paper with a 14 digit number on it that will be redeamable for Energon Cubes that you can use to buy things with at the "Bot Shop" in the game.

The rare chase Super Bots will have a code good for larger amounts of Energon AND that opens an exclusive "Super Bot Arena" location. If you can win a fight there you unlock Super Bots to recruit into your stable of characters.


Check the game out over that the Transformers Bot Shots Homepage.

We've got a double-whammy of news on the Roll Out Roll Call 2012 convention which is taking place March 10 and 11 at the Jury's Inn in Southampton in the UK. First and foremost, new images and additional information on the Snake Armors comes to us from the fine people at Transformers@The Moon. The new images show just how big this piece is - capable of going toe-to-toe with a Voyager Class Transformer! TF@TM also reports that in true Transformers style this G.I. Joe themed piece - based on the battlesuits used by Cobra in the Devil's Due G.I. Joe Vs Transformers comics - is also a Pretender shell that can fit Mini-cons inside it! Or, if you are in to G.I. Joe, it fits a 25th or 30th anniversary figure just fine too. These are limited to 30 versions of each deco.

Second, via Blot on our sister site Hisstank, we have a look at a limited run exclusive custom Red Shadows Dreadnought. It's a modified War for Cybertron Cliffjumper with a new head, and it looks awesome. This one is a limited run of 25 pieces.

There's still time to pre-register for Roll Out Roll Call 2012! Head over to All the Cool Stuff to find out more!
