The art is the same as before, but without the “Ultimate Fan” text and a change in positioning for the Cybertron logo.
The boxset is due for release on 22nd July in North America from Paramount Home Entertainment. The episodes are presented in full frame with English audio. There are no plans for any extras to be included.
We hope to get some information from Paramount HE on any plans for an international release.
No extras have been announced, and there isn’t likely to be any. However, it’s still “the ultimate collection for the ultimate fan”.
Heroic Decepticon Starscream, part of the Shattered Glass set for BotCon 2008, has appeared on ebay. The item is a repaint of Cybertron voyager Starscream, with similar colours to G1 Jetfire.
TF@TM have interviewed Tim Bradley, who worked for Hasbro as a designer in 1998 and 2004 on Transformers, Star Wars and Jurassic Park to name a few. Included in his Transformers portfolio is work on Beast Wars, Beast Machines and Transformers Cybertron.

Great news everyone, Mr Dogworm of Seibertron.com has spotted Cybertron Primus in Dominoes for £49.99, and here is what he had to say:
I’m a weak, weak man
It’s the non-Unicron version by the way. I didn’t want it, but seeing it in the plastic just melted away my composure. That’s the best pic I could get of the receipt, though if anyone really wants me to I could scan it. Price was £49.99.
Primus is in US packaging, complete with boxart. HOWEVER- it isn’t an import, it came directly from Hasbro UK. It came the shame shipment as Skyshadow, Wing Sabre (okay, I’ll give you the space, by not the inelegant yank spelling ) and the SWTF Millienuim Falcon. It is worth noting that the Supreme Starscreams I saw in TRU were also in US packaging with boxart, so maybe Hasbro are just importing them? Do they sell Supremes on the continent?
It seems that Hasbro UK have completely axed the tech specs from the their boxes. Wing Sabre and Skyshadow just have their features listed in 12 (!) different languages.
With all the Comic Con and movie news recently, you thought we forgot about you Cybertron collectors in the UK.
