Transformers Fan Vote Open, Legends Rodimus Revealed

TransformersToo MuchThe Transformers Official App has been updated with the first round of fan voting - you can pick alt modes.

The good news is you get a first peek at Hot Spot and Groove's alt modes. The bad news is it's because that's what you're voting for - 3 different existing bodies. Will the limbs be new? Or all repaints? We have no idea yet, but start voting.

Also noteworthy, Legends Rodimus and Legends Skywarp were revealed on Hasbro's German site. While both "rumored," this is the first we've seen of the pair. Which probably means we'll see a few more reveals prior to Toy Fair.

Transformers Combiner Wars Wildrider, Slingshot Coming to US?

TransformersTransformersVia TFW2005: Toys R Us Listings For Combiner Wars Slingshot And Wildrider! These are just semi-verified listings in a computer, but given the names and prices it's expected that they may be a) exclusive and/or b) Combiner Wars limbs of some sort.

No real details are known yet but the sources seem historically sound - we just don't know what these are for sure, or if/when they're coming to the USA.

New Zelda Hats

NintendoHatVia NCS: TOYS Zelda no Densetsu: Kamigami no Triforce 2 Link & Ravio Boshi. These are Ravio and Link hats from the 3DS A Link Between Worlds game. NCS says:

"Don a Link or Ravio cap for the next Comic-Con or gaming convention and draw envious stares and desirous glares from the rabble in their raggedy homemade wearables that are a shadow of the official versions from Furyu. The caps measure 30cm across or 11.81" which should fit most human heads. Preorders are welcome to ship in late December 2014."

I've been sitting on games and hardware to register, so I'll be doing that now.

Transformers News - Slingshot Coming to Japan

TransformersTransformersVia Planet Iacon on Facebook: New Transformers Unite Warriors Superion.

There are a few deco changes, but the most significant one is the appearance of Slingshot instead of Alpha Bravo. There are also white hands and feet for the combined mode. Or, you can just get the US one for presumably a fraction of the price, but we'll see.

New and newish announcements include a Combiner Wars IDW Devastator, Warpath as a Legends figure, Masterpiece Ironhide, and a redeco of Combiner Wars Powerglide in purple. Is any of it true? Well, we'll have to wait and see what shows at Toy Fair, but it's certainly very interesting. Take it with a grain of salt, but given some of the details and the timing it's certainly worth a read.

SLUG Monsters, Aliens, Stories

Slug StuffSLUGVia Little Weirdos: Q&A: SLUG Zombies designer John Rauschelbach!

There's a lot of weirdness in this line, including denial of things we saw (Aliens, Monsters) - this confirms the designs, some of the heat, and that season 5 was indeed produced. (I've seen packaged samples, but never for sale.) This is must-see/must-read stuff.

Transformers Fan-Built Bot Combiner Vote Begins Soon

TransformersTransformersVia Hasbro: Hasbro Invites Transformers Fans to Create Massive Transformers Character to Enlist in the Combiner Wars! Actually that's a link to an app which is required to vote in said poll - voting will be open for multiple rounds with one week each. The first fan-built bot was Windblade, and the impact in the fandom seems to be pretty significant. As marketing goes, this seems like a smart idea.

Generally Hasbro offered up options from which you could pick things like color, faction, gender, and more - so odds are we won't be able to get into the nitty gritty for each character. The release is set for 2016, which hopefully means more classic combiners will make appearances between now and whenever the line ends. Although, to be honest, I'm hard-pressed to name what I'd like to see as alt modes that we don't more or less already have in some form or another. Sharkticons? That'd be fun.

New Game for the Xbox One Released

Xbox OneFunk of TitansXbox fans, it's time to download Funk of Titans, a $12.49 download in which you can presumably enter a 1970s action movie. Microsoft says:

"Funk of Titans is a thrilling and addictive game, simple and fun to play but hard to master. You will control Perseus, the son of Zeus and protector of the legendary holy music: the Funk. Run across the ancient greek mythology, risk your life jumping over crazy platforms, collect funk vinyls, beat enemies, wear epic costumes, ride the legendary Pegasus and smash the rap, the pop and the rock of the evil Musical Titans in fierce dance battles. Only one music can survive and the Funk is the music of the gods."
