Taiwanese retailer Family Mart has recently begun a new promotion for Transformers: Kre-O, featuring over-sized articulated Kreons cell phone danglers that are not just jumbo representations of prior Kreon releases, but feature Phone/Tablet Styluses in the head, and flashlights in the stomach. While it is unknown at this time how one may get ahold of these oddities, we do know that they will be available in five styles: Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, Bumblebee, and Sideswipe.

We've got something of a treat for you now, because it is not every day we get to share a gallery of the first character in an all-new faction with you! In this gallery update we have Transformers Prime Voyager Class Thundertron
, leader (and so far only official member) of the new faction of Star Seekers, introduced in the Transformers Exodus novel.
Thundertron truly is a unique character. Design wise, he is chock full of molded details, a far cry from the typically "cleaner" design aesthetic of the Transformers Prime designs. He's also the first true beast we've had in a good long while, and to top it all off, he's an all-new character - not a homage or an obscure but existing character getting a toy for the first time. Also, he's a space-pirate robot with a peg leg. Arrrrr.
The toy himself is an excellent design. The beast mode is convincing, with more of a techno-animal feel to it than a Beast Wars one, while the robot mode has some good poseability and excellent balance, even with the peg leg! Design wise though, while he fits in with the other Prime toys, Thundertron blurs the line enough to look good with toys from other lines as well - which is good, given that three out of the four other named Star Seekers can be repurposed from other toys, and the four look pretty decent together.
All in all, well recommended. Thundertron is a good and fun toy, worthy of a purchase once he hits retail along with his wavemate Ultra Magnus.

In an interview with Geek Cast Radio
, Steven Melching, writer of several episodes of Transformers Prime and Beast Machines, shed some light on some upcoming plot points and addressed a few fan complaints about Transformers Prime - namely the widely-noted fact that status quo has been omnipresent thus far.
Other points he raised include:
We've not seen the last of SynthEn (introduced, and last seen, in the season 1 episode Stronger, Faster)
Steven Melching wrote the season 2 finale, Darkest Hour, and will be writing five episodes of season 3. Marsha Griffin (Prime series story editor, writer of Legacy, Predatory and Transformers Animated Endgame Part 2 amongst others) will also be writing five episodes for season 3.
Season 2 "will not end well" for the Autobots. Apparently the big question going into season 3 will be how they get out of the situation they find themselves in.
Season 3 will have a complete new setting, and no status quo.
Steven Melching would be okay with season 3 being the end of the series, because going into the series they knew how they wanted the series to end, and apparently that is how season 3 will end.Check out the whole interview on Geek Cast Radio here.Read Replies (0)

By way of Zap2it
, we have the title of the season finale of Transformers Prime Season 2. It's been an interesting journey getting to this point, and on 2 November 2012, Season 2 of Transformers Prime will end with the Darkest Hour! Yes, the season ends with an episode titled for another famous quote from Transformers lore. There is no description up - yet - but it's an ominous portent for what lies ahead.
We've got four more episodes of Transformers Prime to enjoy between now and then - listed below for your convenience - including the new episode Hard Knocks tonight then further new episodes every Friday between now and 2 November 2012, when we will witness Transformers Prime's Darkest Hour (and then the slightly less dark hours of the wait for season 3 to begin airing!)
Upcoming Transformers Prime Episodes
Tonight! 10/05 Hard Knocks
10/12 Inside Job

TFC Toys has updated their Facebook page
with new prototype images of the sixth member of their Project Uranos combiner project. Uranos number 3 is called X-45 Phantom Ray and will form the chest plate in combined mode for this unofficial Superion custom figure.
Proper images have also been released of the Silverbolt figure aka SR-71 Blackbird, indicating the engines are an optional detachable booster backpack. Additionally the nose of the jet mode detaches and transforms in a rather impressive fashion to form the figure's gun.
Check out the new images after the break.Read Replies (0)
