Toy News: Hasbro Asia "Power of the Primes" Dinobot boxed set announced

Online retailer TMall has posted a listing for a boxed set of Dinobots from "Power of the Primes", however the set may not be what most fans expect. Instead of a "Combiner Wars" style box featuring figures with premium decos or extra accessories, this is essentially a repack of the five mass retail Dinobots who form Volcanicus. They will be in a box featuring Volcanicus' beautiful artwork and renders of the figures on the side.

Cartoon News: Victor Caroli narrates a "Titans Return" recap

Victor Caroli is the narrator who lent his voice to several episodes of the original Transformers cartoon in the 80's. His deep and distinctive voice lent a certain gravitas to the series that was (let's face it) a fun kid's show made to sell toys. Now decades later Caroli has again lent his voice to a Transformers cartoon. This time he narrates a recap of "Titans Return" for those who want to catch up before they watch "Power of the Primes", which began yesterday. Check out the video in the embed below.
