Thanks to Collider.com, we now have two new promotional images for the upcoming second season of Transformers Prime! The first image features Optimus Prime split down the middle with the Decepticons to this left and the Autobots to his right. Half of Optimus is his regular self, while the half that is on the Decepticon side shows him wearing a Decepticon symbol on his left shoulder. The 2nd image is of Optimus in mid jump. Jumping out of the shadows maybe? Let us know what you think!

Chevrolet.com Gallery Update: 2012 Transformer Special Edition "Bumblebee" Camaro
Posted by News Fetcher on January 18 '12 at 02:30 AM
By Superquad7 from TFW2005:
Chevrolet.com has added a photo gallery to their website promoting their latest "2012 Transformers Special Edition" Camaro, decorated to look much like one of those Transformers robots from the movies (care to guess which one?*). This gallery clearly shows that this new edition does take a few liberties in design (notably the rear spoiler) while still remaining faithful to its on-screen counterpart. There is also an optional upgrade package that consists of black ground effects and black 21" wheels that can be purchased separately. If you have ever wanted a chance to own a movie car, perhaps one of these Special Edition Camaro cars is for you, as there is still time enough to order one of these from you local Chevrolet dealer!

Check out the mirrored photos after the jump!

Guido Guidi Neo-Seeker Design
Posted by News Fetcher on January 17 '12 at 11:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here's something a bit cool we thought was worth sharing with you all - Transformers artist extraordinaire Guido Guidi has posted up a "Neo-Seeker" design on his Deviant Art account. While not an official piece of work for a Transformers project - bolded that for emphasis to avoid confusion - it's just a warm-up piece Guido did while also experimenting with a more streamlined style, in the vein of the Transformers Animated / Transformers Prime look.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I think Guido's nailed the look pretty convincingly with this piece! Could this be a taste of the future evolution of Guido's art work for Transformers? Would it be a style you'd like to see more of?

Transformers Prime Retooled Voyager Optimus Prime

By Shin Densetsu from TFW2005:
Sky.ap.teacup.com has posted an article which shows a Transformers Prime display from World Hobby Fair, held in Osaka. Curiously enough, a retooled version of Transformers Prime Voyager Optimus Prime was on display, with:

New Autobot logos on the shoulders

Silver shoulder stripes

All new shoulder cannon

All new Sword

5mm ports on the forearms
In the midst of the discussion, 2005 boards member tackertackle came out of nowhere and supplied the following info:

The panel in 6th picture says that this (or these?) weapon has a secret
and it will be revealed in Korokoro comic magazine April issue (which will out on March 15th).

I think (the)blade-like weapon is same as the one which is in teaser image with new mold voyager optimus.


In any case, looks like come April, TakaraTomy has a more G1-inspired(deco-wise) Optimus on the way for the Transformers Prime line! Check out this "new" Prime for yourself after the jump!
