Amazon has revealed the publication date and contents for volume 2 of Lost Light
, as well as the cover for this second collection. Issues 7 through 12 will comprise this trade, and it's anticipated to be published on March 13, 2018. For reference, just today was the first publication of issue 7 itself. The cover art revealed in the listing focuses on Nautica and (the memory of) Skids, drawn by Alex Milne. You can find the cover art below, along with a link to the listing page!
From NOTRAB we have a curious photo showing two unknown items. More prominently is an Optimus Prime - which is the Leader Class toy from the 2007 movie line. This features chrome as well as a deco that's not consistent with any prior release of this mold, most notably lacking the orange fade on the truck nose typical of this toy. But what this mysterious new old Optimus is sitting on is some sort of Bumblebee box set. What's up with that? Keep reading for more details!
IGN has posted a motion comic style trailer for IDW's First Strike event, launching in August. The minute-long video features scenes of battle between Transformers and the human factions before shifting in to the requisite infodump on publication frequency and which franchises will be involved in the grand project, all set to some mildly generic but decent music. You can view the video now, embedded below!
Via ICv2, we've learned that IDW, publisher of Transformers comics, among a wide range of licensed Hasbro properties, is reporting a loss of $1.8 million, which is being described as a serious drop from the same time last year where the end of quarter showed a profit level of $81,000. From the article, no specific area seems to be put under scrutiny for leading to the current outcome, with many factors of circumstance cited as potential contributors. For our particular corner of IDW, we probably wouldn't expect to see major shakeups in the Hasbro-verse just yet, but a continued decline might lead to re-examining the current directions in various areas.

Hey look are those toys? Not sure what's going on over at Hasbro UK, they are posting these videos featuring Transformers The Last Knight toys in a highly childish manner. This hands-on production, literally with quick poses and sub-par voice overs. You have been warned.
Coinciding with the launch of the preorder period, TakaraTomy Mall has added photos of the four Masterpiece cassette characters making up their combined MP-15/16-E set. Enemy, Wingthing, Stripes, and new mold Night Stalker are all on display in full color and deco, showing both robot modes and their individual cassette form decos. There's no clear indication of when preorders for the set will be closed, but the page now gives a delivery estimate of December for the set. You can find all the images in the gallery below!
From forums member chuckdawg1999, we've got a two in one review for both of the main Hot Rod releases for The Last Knight's toyline. The video starts with a look at the Deluxe edition, which while known to share some engineering with Age of Extinction Lockdown, seems to largely have its own identity in the particulars of its transformation. The Legion Class brings up the end of the video, rounding things out with a simplicity that seems enjoyable after the Deluxe figure. You can find the video embedded below, click through to see it now!
Via Weibo, Uniquetoys has shared some new pictures of Ragnaros, the Masterpiece-size Combaticon project they're working on. Using color samples of the Swindle and Brawl analogues and grey prototypes for the other three, we get some looks at the assembled combined form of Ragnaros itself, and a team shot of the five robots together. Some aspects like the combiner chestplate look to be adopting cartoon traits, perhaps as a way to more fully embrace the current style of real Masterpieces which are embracing cartoon elements in their designs. You can find the whole set in the gallery below!
FansToys has shared new photos showing off a full color testshot of Koot, the unofficial Kup joining their lineup of Masterpiece-scale figures. While it is cautioned that details could still change before the final version of the figure, this seems to be giving a positive impression for the project, offering such things as opaque or transparent windshield options, an option face with a cigar, and a fairly good representation of the cartoon model in the face sculpting - though the cigar was always an IDW-specific trait. We've mirrored the photos, and you can find them all below.
