Netflix The Toys That Made Us Season 3 to Feature TMNT, My Little Pony, Wrestling & Power Rangers #TTTMU: For those of you keeping tabs at home, another reveal was made at San Diego Comic Con 2018, from the panel starring the creators of the Netflix documentary series The Toys That Made Us, which we knew had been extended to another season of four episodes (or half season, if you want). The contents of this season 3 have now been announced, and they feature some of the brands that people had been asking for: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Wrestling, My Little Pony and Power Rangers! The latter is paticularly interesting with its recent license acquisition by Hasbro and 25th anniversary this year (in the US, at least), but they all will surely strike a chord with fans. Let us know what you think in the Energon Pub Discussion boards! http://dlvr.it/QcJl7W

Walmart-Exclusive G1 Minibot Reissues Sighted in Canada With New Rubsign Variety: While SDCC chugs along, it's important to remember that news still happens outside that convention! Fellow Seibertronian Samsonator has spotted the Walmart-exclusive G1 reissue Minibots at (naturally) a Walmart near South Surrey BC. Bumblebee, Swerve and Tailgate were all present and accounted for, at $11.97 CAD (about $9.10 USD)... and Swerve and Tailgate also brought with them some more interesting news. It seems that a new variety of rubsigns has debuted with these reissues, differing from the old kind in a few ways. Aside from a more reflective silver, the actual "rubsign" part itself is apparently made from a softer material, and the Autobot logo appears simply as red rather than a variety of colors depending on the temperature. Check out the image of the sighting below, and check Samsonator's Twitter post for a video showing off the new rubsigns! Share any thoughts you may have in the Energon Pub Forums, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more Transformers news! http://dlvr.it/QcGxLV

Transformers Bumblebee Movie Interview with Cast and Director Travis Knight #SDCC2018 #JoinTheBuzz: IMDb, the well-known.. well, internet movie database, took the opportunity to conduct an interview about the Bumblebee movie at San Diego Comic Con. The interview, as conducted by Kevin Smith, features director Travis Knight alongside cast members John Cena and Jorge Lendeborg Jr. answering a few questions about the upcoming film! Check below for the full video (note the presence of some coarse language at the very beginning) and a couple highlights from the interview, share your thoughts in the Energon Pub Forums, and stay tuned for the last few bits of news still to come out of SDCC 2018! How to Share With Just Friends Smith jokes (probably?) that he "openly wept" upon seeing the trailer for Bumblebee, and describes his excitement for it far over any of the previous Transformers films. (To Knight) How did this [movie] happen? Knight: "I'm a child of the 80's; I grew up watching the Transformers cartoons, playing with the toys, reading the comic books [...] these characters matter to me, these stories matter to me. [...] I really wanted to bring that kind of spirit to this film, to this franchise. For me the best kinds of stories, the best kinds of films [...] are the ones that have a strong beating heart - that have a poetic soul. That's the perspective we tried to bring to this film." Knight mentions that the original idea for the Bumblebee film came from Steven Spielberg, to Smith's incredulity, and says that the movie's (and trailer's) tone was similarly inspired by Spielberg. Extended jorts banter between Smith and Cena. (To Cena) You've joined this movie, but have you also joined a larger universe of movies? Cena: "Just because of the subject matter, there's no way that I can say no. I can't say much more than that, just because of the things I had to sign. [...] I will say this. What drew me to this, and what drew me to want to be involved with the universe, not only was [Knight] but how passionately he feels about story. [...] I'm really excited to be part of a wonderful story." Smith speculates on the possibility of an extended universe, beyond even just Transformers, and Cena agrees wholeheartedly with the idea. Sneaky joke about M.A.S.K. slipped in there? (To Lendeborg) What was it like jumping into an up-and-running franchise, but a new development of it? Lendeborg: "Obviously I had a bit part in Spider-Man, but after that I moved on to Alita: Battle Angel [...] I think all those things kind of prepared me to be more of a crucial role in one of these big franchises." Some conflict as each interviewee considers themselves the Megan Fox of their respective fields. "We're all trying to be Megan Fox." Knight is thrilled at the "very positive" reaction to the trailer, and hopes audiences enjoy the film when it drops! http://dlvr.it/QcGsK4

Transformers: The Last Knight Deluxe Cogman finally found at U.S. Retail: As often happens with the final waves of Transformers toylines, Wave 4 of the Last Knight toys (consisting of Cogman and repacks of previous Waves' figures) never showed up at U.S. retail. While he could be found online (usually for a significant markup over his $19.99 MSRP), we now have great news for those who couldn't bite the bullet on a $30 deluxe. Fellow Seibertronian Emerje found Cogman for a very agreeable $9.99 at a Ross store in Augusta, Maine, and sent us photo proof below. Are you going to be on the hunt for this elusive figure? Let us know in the comments below, and be sure to send us photo proof of any hard to find figures if you think you're the first to sight them. Good luck! http://dlvr.it/QcGlCw

New IDW Publishing Go-Bots Comics Series by Tom Scioli Announced: One of the pieces of news that might have been missed during the San Diego Comic Con event as the announcement from IDW Publishing of a new comic book series from the creative mind and hands of Tom Scioli, of Transformers vs GI Joe fame. Are you ready for the return of GOBOTS? Because that's what we're getting! Check out below the full press release and an image from Leader-1's new look! GO-BOTS Return in All-New Comic Book Series IDW Celebrates the 35th Anniversary of Classic Toy Line with a Sci-Fi Epic Written and Drawn by Tom Scioli SAN DIEGO, CA (July 20, 2018) – IDW Publishing is proud to announce that Tom Scioli, the visionary creator that brought you Transformers vs. G.I. Joe, will unleash his imagination on the wonderful world of Go-Bots! Launching in October, Go-Bots will be the first story to feature classic toy and cartoon characters like Leader-1, Scooter, Turbo, and Cy-Kill’s Renegades in over three decades! In the new five-issue series, the existence of Go-Bots on Earth has changed humans’ way of life. They chauffeur us around. They protect us from harm. They do the jobs that are too boring or dangerous for us. They fight our wars for us. They are friends for the lonely. The only thing they don’t do is dream for us… but that could change any day now. For a generation, Leader-1 and the Guardians have said that they were here to help us… but as they become more integrated into our society, the question must be asked: Are they here to replace us? “This is a dream project – I’m writing, drawing, coloring, and hand-lettering this book. It’s a labor of love,” says Scioli. “When these characters were conceived of in the ’80s, the idea of robots with human personalities was science fiction. Now, it’s history. The world of living machines is here – we’re living it. The time is right for Go-Bots!” “Avant-garde creator Tom Scioli has been pushing the comic book storytelling medium for nearly two decades now and his work on Go-Bots is yet another watershed moment in his career,” says IDW Associate Publisher David Hedgecock. “It is a testament to the strong collaboration between IDW Publishing and Hasbro, that projects like this can exist on licensed properties.” For information on how to secure copies of the monthly Go-Bots comic book series, please contact your local comic shop or visit www.comicshoplocator.com to find a store near you. Creator Bio: Tom Scioli is a writer and artist who works primarily in the comic book/graphic novel art form. His solo works include American Barbarian, Satan's Soldier, Mystery Object, and Myth of 8-Opus. He is the co-author of the comic and graphic novel series Godland with Joe Casey, and the co-writer/artist of IDW’s Transformers vs. G.I. Joe. http://dlvr.it/QcGT2N

Here's what happened during Transformers Bumblebee Movie Panel at #SDCC2018 #JoinTheBuzz: We're in the infamous Hall H at San Diego Comic Con 2018, ready for updates from the Transformers Bumblebee Movie panel, featuring the cast and crew of the movie due out in December 2018 from Paramount! Present on stage are director Travis Knight, screenwriter Christina Hodson, actors Hailee Steinfeld, Jorge Lendeborg Jr, John Cena. AND STAN BUSH PLAYING THE TOUCH LIVE ON STAGE. Anthony Breznican of Entertainment Weekly moderates the panel. Some lighting ribbing ofMichael Bay starts off the introduction of Travis Knight, director of the movie. Clip shown as a sizzle reel for the director with the cast talking about his work and background. Background in animation starts from nothing, and animation is a distillation of feelings - this is a movie tha calls back to a smaller cast, the magic that he had as a child of the 80s - each charatcer needed its own silhouette its own canvas, moving back to the original look and wave of the G1 characters. What could be worked into the new design from the original animation? Lots of moving parts, leaning to the original plating of the G1 design. How is this different from animation? Process in live-action is much shorter, not terribly different, animators were approached as actors - allows the audience to attach more meaningfully. It's effectively an origin story, Bumblebee has always been the human close character, who he was , why he becomes who he becomes, a deep dive into the character to understand who he is. What is he doing on earth with no supporting Autobots? Looking at parallels with Charlier and adolescence, trying to fit in or stand out, feeling completely utterly alone - channeling that aspect. Do we get to visit his world in this movie? YES. We will see Cybertron. It is awesome, Travis says. It is Bumblebee's story, we have a small cast, but there are all manners of layers for fans of the franchise more widely. Haille Steinfeld ,and Jorge Lendeborg Jr join the stage. Charlie is trying to find that sense of freedom, to fill the loss she’s feeling, finds this car who isn’t a car, the journey of Charlie with Bumblebee is a beautiful story of discovery. Herself, she wants to start her own life, connect with what’s she’s lost with this sort of escape. Jorge / Memo is interested in Charlie, leads him into big Bumblebee adventure, trying to see Charlie for who she is. Trying very hard even if it means going versus robot aliens. He had a Larry Bird poster in his room, GoBots are mentioned, he speaks to the inner geek within us all, the things that people might not think that are cool. Looks a lot like Travis’ bedroom as a kid. A journey of coming of age and discovery for Charlie, Memo develops more confidence and sincerity. Bad guys, Shatter and Dropkcik, voiced by Angela Bassett and Justin Thoreaux, they're triple changers - muscle cars and air vehicles (chopper and harrier jet) - design was inspired by Nightbird for Shatter, and Megatron for Dropkick. Jet we saw in trailer IS NOT Starscream, but it is a Seeker (uniform jet design) design: character is called Blitzwing. Every good hero has a good villain: Agent Burns, played by John Cena. Going up against shapeshifting alien robots, how is he an antagonist? He thinks he is in the right in the movie, if humans help people such as Transforemrs, those humans are not that nice. Charlie does not - obviously - like Agent Burns. No one is really spilling the beans on the character - the good hook about the character is that he definitely knows he is right, and that makes it compelling as a perspective for a villain. NEW TRAILER SHOWN Audience questions: for Hailee: how do you balance your music with your acting? trying to take everything one step at the time, currently touring on the East Coast, but this is exciting to see all of this coming together. What would Bumblebee do if he had to fight an actual giant bumblebee robot? Cena: he's compassionate, trying to find out if this is a good or bad Transformer, analyze strength and weakness, he would definitely defeat the bug. Do you expect to star in more movies after this, John Cena? Kinda depends on audience, but if it doesn't I can still go back to John Cena - do you have anything else in the works? Another for John: what's it like transitioning from a hero to a villain? the career in the WWE and my character as a 'good guy' in the WWE was an inspiration to be a grey character morally, but definitely not a heel in this. What was it like working with something that wasn't here? Circus performer was present on stitls in scenes for cast to work with, facial expressions were useful, but then most of the time it's a tennis ball on a stick. It has to be a believable performacne for the audience, and it's a testament to the cast's skill. What's Bumblebee's favourite song? The Touch, clearly. Does Bumblebee prefer acting or wrestling? (Travis plugs John Cena) Bumblebee will surpirse people, he has been something of a warrio, but he's believeable and amotional and authentic as an emotional character, credit to the animators. What did you like a bout TFs as you were younger, Cena? Having a Transformer meant you had two toys in one, it was absolutely amazing, and getting two with one was the best experience. PETER CULLEN ASKS A QUESTION AS OPTIMUS PRIME Travis Knight, my name is Optimus Prime, I could not help but notice my absence in much of your footage. (It is called Bumblebee). What does an Autobot have to do to get his own movie? Let's test emotional range. Show us joyful exuberance. (This goes as expected.) http://dlvr.it/QcG5sp
