The Conclusion Of The Unicron Trilogy!

2005

It was the year 2005, a year shockingly not marked by people donning silver jumpsuits or driving around in flaming winnebagos. What 2005 did bring was the third of the Unicron Trilogy series, Transformers Cybertron, which premiered first in Japan as Transformers Galaxy Force. New license holders abound too, as IDW Publishing took up the reins of Transformers comics, and Fun Publications took over running the conventions, restoring the original name Botcon and even getting a Transformers Collector’s Club set up, complete with exclusive toys. In addition, the Transformers live action movie got a director in the form of Michael Bay… [Read more…]

Hat tip goes out to TFW2005 boards member captain N for pointing us in the right direction to an Amazon listing for Transformers Cybertron: The Complete Series. Shout Factory is making a push to have this series released on DVD this August 5th at an MSRP of $44.99, but you can pre-order it now on Amazon for around $31!

The Cybertron DVD news was first reported by TVShowsOnDvd.com, which they’ve also pointed out the Amazon listing currently states the product is for “The Complete Series,” though that could just be an Amazon glitch. They were able to grab a screen shot earlier with the listing stating is was indeed for Transformers Cybertron.

Some images posted via Weibo have given us our first look at the Platinum Edition Year of the Horse Starscream. He is a redeco of the Transformers Cybertron Supreme Starscream, one of the largest Transformers toys from last decade, sporting a Generation 1 inspired deco. In fact the deco also seems to take a few cues from the Legends Class Starscream which was given away as a freebie with pre-orders of Transformers War for Cybertron (check out some images of that one here). Check out the image of this new Platinum edition figure at left and see what you think. [Read more…]

Speaking of rare items being shared with the fandom this day, 2005 Boards member Monzo has shared with us some rare pictures of Aaron Archer’s napkin of revelation – a napkin upon which he wrote down the first ideas of what would go on to become Transformers Cybertron. Check this out to see the genesis of a Transformers line – the idea from which all else follows. You can see on this ideas that made the final cut of the series – such as the four planets and their themes, the idea of splitting into teams to tackle each world, and the general quest revolving around awakening Primus. You can also see concepts that did not make the final cut, such as a reference to the “Apocalypse” planet, the Matrix forming some kind of armor, and a transforming Vector Sigma apparently having something to do with Primus / Cybertron’s core.
