Time for an update and a very special one too! It's the first by my new co-editor, Daymon. Everyone who reads this blog knows that Daymon has notified us of many, many excellent transformations in the past. With that mind, I asked if he'd like to take on a curatorial role and I'm very happy he accepted. So please welcome our new co-editor! He's posted four new items below, and I'm sure you'll agree he's off to a great start. As for myself, I'll be posting new stuff sometime in early February.

Conan the Adventurer (Wolf, Lizard, Dragon, Falcon, and Monster Transformations)

This is Daymon, here as the co-editor with my first major post. I wanted to start with a selection of transformations from Conan the Adventurer cartoon.

Let's begin with this wolf transformation:

Conan the Adventurer S01E08 Greywolf of Xanthus

Here is a monster-into-bigger-monster transformation:

Conan the Adventurer S02E17 The Vengeance of...

His reversion scene:

Conan the Adventurer S02E17 The Vengeance of...

Here is Windfang's dragon-man transformation:

Conan the Adventurer S01E12 Windfang's Eyrie

And Windfang's reversion:

Conan the Adventurer S02E25 Earthbound

But poor Winfang transfoms yet again:

Conan the Adventurer S02E25 Earthbound

Here is a falcon-man transformation:

An Evil Wind in Kusan

And the reversion scene:

An Evil Wind in Kusan

Here is a lizardman reversion:

Conan the Adventurer S02E32 Final Hours of Conan 

Werewolf Roundup (Werewolf transformations)

Hello, this is your co-editor, Daymon, posting some new werewolf transformations: 

First we have the transformation (with a slo-mo replay) from The Simpons' "Treehouse of Horror X":

Here is one from American Dad:

And here are the transformation and reversion scenes from the claymation MTV show Celebrity Deathmatch:

I also found the video of the Olliver's Adventures episode "Wolfman Zack." The transformation starts at the 16:50 mark: Wolfman Zack transformation

Wangpai Yushi (Bear Transformation)

Daymon here as co-editor, presenting a scene I found in the Chinese supernatural comedy anime Wangpai Yushi. Hope you enjoy:

The Monster Ring (Monster Transformations)

Co-Editor Daymon here--take a look at this animated special, which features several monster transformations:

Update Complete!

The December update is now complete. 10 new items have been added since Sunday.
I didn't get around to posting everything I wanted, such as the many comics I have backlogged, but those will appear in the next update, which should be in mid-January (if I have lots of free time after Christmas, I might post one or two items). So if you suggested something that didn't show up this time, my apologies--I'll get to it! In the meantime, enjoy the new stuff. Youtube has become rather unpredictable, so please let me know ASAP if any of the videos get taken down. Have a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

P.S. There's a full moon on Christmas, so if you transform and run amok, make sure you wake up indoors!

P.P.S. Shadowlord Inc. just updated as well, so make sure to check the many fresh goodies over there!

Tiger and Wolf (Werewolf and Weretiger Transformations)

Here's a slightly strange movie: Tiger and Wolf (2013) seems to have been inspired by the Twilight craze, since the story involves lots of shirtless high school hunks turning into werewolves and weretigers (which are part of Thai folklore). But despite what you're about to see, most of the movie is live-action--only the parts involving werecreatures are animated. Now, on one hand that's an interesting way to cut costs. One the other, the animation looks like it was made in two hours on the director's mac. Nevertheless, it's an interesting experiment. Towards the end, you can see one of the live action characters shift into his animated counterpart.

Crying Wolf (Werewolf Transformations)

This very cheesy werewolf film was released earlier this year. As you can see, the special effects are a combination of cheap CGI and even cheaper costumes, but I give the filmmakers credit for going to the effort of portraying several werewolf transformations. I've edited together the first transformation scene, a later scene of a group of characters transforming (NSFW--there are lady boobs on display), and a reversion scene toward the end.

The Changing Times Podcast

For the first time I'm going to write about something that isn't a movie, TV show, comic, or book.
Changing Times is a podcast that's all about transformations. As proprietor Cheasy Dino states, it's "a project to create a more sociable atmosphere for transformation enthusiasts." It's goal "is to bring the transformation community together, as well as share our interests." The podcast features interviews with artists, writers, and various other members of the TF community. Past guests have included Dragoniade and Arania, and our friend Dutchbull will be appearing soon too.

And now I have joined their company. Last fall I had the pleasure of being interviewed for the podcast, and you can now listen to the results. I'm not sure if you want to hear me ramble on for an hour, but please support the podcast and give some of the other episodes a listen. My thanks to Cheasy for a very enjoyable interview and for helping to create stronger ties in the transformation community.

Scream Street (Werewolf Transformation)

Scream Street is a claymation/stop-motion animated series from the BBC, based on a popular set of children's books. The main character is a werewolf. From what I can tell, the same transformation sequence is re-used in most of the episodes, so here's its first appearance, in episode 2.

Concrete Revolutio & Zatch Bell (Jaguar Transformation and monster transformation)

Thanks to Daymon for alerting me to episode 10 of the anime Concrete Revolutio. I have no idea what's going on this clip, but the Jaguar-man is pretty cute:

As a bonus, here's another find by Daymon--a clip from episode 147 of Zatch Bell, showing a little monster turning into a much bigger one:

Robinsons Drinks (Age Progression Transformation)

This juice commercial is true to its title: "They Grow Up Fast." And it's very well edited!

I wish the transformation between the early adolescent and rebellious teenager actors had been shown, but I can't complain about anything else.

Guardians of the Galaxy (Monster/Muscle Growth Transformation)

Thanks to Daymon for discovering this scene: in the ninth episode of this Marvel comics cartoon, the brother of Rocket Racoon undergoing a Hulk-style transformation.

Guardians of the Galaxy S01E09 - Season 1... by KidsGarden

And if you want to see the reversion scene, click here.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (Monster Transformation)

Thanks to Mike for recommending this clip from a Marvel Comics TV show. I'm not familiar with the material, so all I can say is that in a character turns into a spiky, hulking monster called "Lash."

In the next episode (season 3, episode 7), Lash transforms again:

And for those who like reversion scenes, he reverts to human form here.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Rat and Monster Transformations)

The original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon was full of transformations, and Daymon recommended featuring three of them. Putting aside from the mutation scene in the first episode, there's also... Vernon's rat-man transformation: The Turtles' secondary mutation into monsters:

Michelangelo's later, even better mutation into a nastier-looking monster--keep watching until you're past the 1:30 mark: Leonardo undergoes a similar transformation several minutes later. And here's a bonus--the anthropomorphic transformations of the Punk Frogs!

Momo Kyun Sword (Monster/Muscle Growth Transformation)

In the last Transformation Round-Up I featured a muscle-growth gif (found by Daymon) from an unknown anime and asked if anyone knew what show it from. An anonymous commenter, following on a tip left by the aptly named "Ms. Helpful," found the source.
It's from the anime Momo Kyun Sword and features a demon who becomes stronger whenever he eats women's panties. Here's the clip--there's further muscle growth toward the end:

Muscle growth fans should make sure to watch the other videos on this excellent channel!
