Toy News: Takara Tomy announced "Metalcore" Transformers

>Takara Tomy has released photos and information on its upcoming line of "Metalcore" Transformers. These are small, non-transformable figures that recall the days of the "Heroes of Cybertron" PVC figures. Based on the name, these figures are like to be partly (if not all) die cast metal. There have been previous "Metalcore" Transformers before, but they were all based on the live action movie series. These are the first to be based on Generation One characters.

Movie News: David Sobolov confirms role in "Bumblebee" Movie

David Sobolov is a name that most Transformers fans will be familiar with. The voice actor's history with Transformers goes back to "Beast Wars" where he played the Maximal Depth Charge. Years later he would lend his voice to the creepy Shockwave from "Transformers Prime". His other credits include "Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters", "Ultimate Spider-Man" and the current "Guardians of the Galaxy" cartoon where he plays Drax. Now the actor has confirmed his role as Blitzwing in the upcoming live action "Bumblebee" movie!

Toy News: Hasbro reveals new "Studio Series" Deluxe Class figures

After teasing new releases a few days ago, Hasbro has released a bunch of new images via the Official Transformers Facebook page showing off several new Deluxe Class figures from the "Studio Series"! The reveals include Barricade (who looks like a scaled down version of the Masterpiece figure), "Clunker" Bumblebee, a redeco of Bumblebee from wave one, Crankcase (a redeco of Crowbar), Sideswipe (a brand new sculpt) and perhaps my personal favorite, "World War II" Bumblebee (inspired by the flashback in "The Last Knight")!
