Fresh from NYCC, we now have more pictures and information from the Hasbro initiative known as UNIT:E via a comic that is available at the convention. Written by former IDW Senior Editor Andy Schmidt, the comic is a "love letter to the varied brands that Hasbro has had the pleasure of ushering into the world"
and includes various properties such as M.A.S.K., Centurions, G.I. Joe, Dungeons and Dragons, Duel Masters, Candy Land, Stretch Armstrong, Battleship: Galaxies, Action Man, and more!Read Replies (0)

Thanks to HK-TF
we have new images of what appears to be another 3rd Party Sixshot figure. Not to be confused with Mastermind Creation's Terminus Hexatron
figure. Little is currently known about the figure other than the images bare the name "BY-01". No 3rd Party Group has attached themselves to the project as of yet.
Take a look at the images after the break.Read Replies (0)

Since the very first Michael Bay Transformers Live Action Movie back in 2007 Titan Magazine of United Kingdom released movie specific issues from June 2007. Sadly, the movie issues have come to an end.
From October 2011, Titan Magazine’s Transformers Issues are rebranded as Transformers: Prime. We’ve heard rumors of this happening, but today TFW2005 Members ojcoolj1 and Oberoniss brought us details of the rebranding.Issue #1

Comic Strip: The Safe And The Failsafe
"During a routine training mission in the "Practice Area", Bulkhead accidentally sets off a nuclear missile's timer. The missile is designed to kill them and it attracts Vehicons, who think it's Energon."
This could very well signal the end of the Michael Bay Transformers Movie Era and at the same time indicate Hasbro is planning for a solid Transformers: Prime future.Read Replies (0)

When our crew at the New York Comic-Con shared a look at the Transformers Prime Cyberverse toys earlier
, one of the main talking points was the use of clear plastic, particular on Megatron. We've received some more pictures from our team at the NYCC which reveals just what all that clear plastic is going to do! Evidently Wheeljack's spaceship will come with a light up feature, which can attach to other Cyberverse figures to make them "glow" through their transparent plastic parts - perhaps to simulate an Energon infusion?
Although this answer raises further questions - could this mean a Decepticon light-up set is also on the cards, to give the Decepticons an evil red or purple glow? And with the emphasis on clear weapons, and the ports on Wheeljack's ship looking just the right size to take them, could there be potential to attach the clear weapons to the ship and make them light up too?
