Tformers is live on the ground at SDCC 2014 covering all the news as it happens. Get ready for the Hasbro Transformers Panel report that we will be publishing live The panel is complete! Read on for our report and slides from the event.
Autobase Aichi has passed along some stock photo finds showing the previously leaked Protectobot-themed figure packs. We now have a look at all five members and can see Hot Spot lacks the purpose-made head from the GDO toy, but uses parts of Grapple's tooling. The release for these figures is still unknown, but is rumored to be an Asian market exclusive. That may not be terrible news, if we might expect a proper Defensor for 2015's Combiner Wars. Keep reading to see the images!
BaCon's gotten video footage of the preview of Robots In Disguise 2015! The new animation style is looking good, and we get good looks at Bumblebee, Sideswipe, and the Elite Guard and Dinobot members of the team who are as-yet unnamed. Keep reading to see!
BaCon's still at the Hasbro Breakfast at Comic-Con International 2014, and he's got photos of the promo for Robots in Disguise 2015! Click the title to see! (...is that Smokescreen returning from Prime Beast Hunters in a more G1ish design?)

That wasn't much of a wait, huh? BaCon has snapped more photos of upcoming Generations Combiners Superion and Menasor! The combiners will be sold as individual figures consisting of a Voyager Class for the mid-section and Deluxe Class figures for the limbs. It seems to me like Superion's gun is a robot unto itself... and it looks a lot like Legends Powerglide. Also, it looks as iff Motormaster is possibly a recolor of the upcoming Voyager Optimus Prime. More info as it becomes available, but for now keep reading and check out the gallery! These will be see these out in January 2015 as the start of the "Combiner Wars" to follow Thrilling 30.
Transformers Asia has posted a new silhouetted teaser image showing what appears to be Optimus Prime with some nasty shoulder cannons. They promise more details at the Hasbro booth at Hong Kong convention ACGHK, which runs through this weekend. Meanwhile, another image has appeared of a second Hot Toys Optimus Prime, this one wearing Megatron's corpse. The silhouette is close enough that this could be the one, but click through and judge for yourself!
The official Transformers YouTube channel has posted a trailer for the upcoming Angry Birds Transformers which shows a more platforming-oriented gameplay style than Angry Birds proper. Interestingly it also shows Optimus Red and Megahog working together (along with Astrotrain) to defeat a larger enemy. It's also revealed that the Telepods toys will work directly with the game in a Skylanders fashion- smart move. Keep reading to see the trailer!
TakaraTomy is now offering a series of limited, signed-and-numbered wall prints of classic G1 boxart as the Transformers Master Art Collection. Each piece, priced between 35-45,000 Yen (approximately $350-450) will be signed by original painter Shin Ueda, and includes Optimus Prime's Japanese boxart (which is similar to but not precisely matching the US version) as well as a number of back-of-package group paintings. Keep reading for sample images and a link!

eHobby has updated their Transformers Cloud story page- again, with a long text piece we couldn't even hope to get an idea of with mechanical translation. But, there's a neat new picture of Rodimus taking a major swing with his sword at someone. We've also got a variety of Fall of Cybertron characters like Bruticus in the background, and Shockwave is using his new Whirl body in a completely undocumented and unintended walker-tank mode. Keep reading for a link and a photo!
