Gregory Titus has shared some of his work on the Age of Extinction line's package art! Titus was part of the team behind the 2014 packaging refresh, and contributed pencils for many of the images seen on TF4 packaging. In addition, there's some preliminary linework, including a gorgeous half-portrait of G1 Optimus Prime that was considered for the Then & Now boxset. Keep reading for more details, selected images, and a link to the full page!
From a listing on Chinese auction site Taobao, we've got new images showing the updated Masterpiece Skywarp. Using the modified seeker body that's been used for Coronation Starscream, Sunstorm in Japan and the US, and Thundercracker and Acid Storm as Hasbro exclusives, Skywarp has been long awaited to finish the original trio by collectors that weren't quite satisfied with the mold's original form. Skywarp is a bit sparse in accessories though, only including a Megatron gun and another Dr Arkeville. Click through and check it out!

Benscollectables have posted a new video review for the Transformers Takara Platinum Edition Masterpiece Soundwave Year Of The Goat set.

Watch the video review to the figure and exclusive packaging now for the full details.
Still need convincing to buy Masterpiece Ultra Magnus? TakaraTomy has you covered, as they've just uploaded a full stop-motion demonstration of the toy, showing its transformation and both modes along with the full lineup of modern Autobot Masterpieces. It's an extremely compelling advertisement for the toy, and a great way to see its scale relative to the toys most likely to be displayed with it, including its use as a car carrier.

FunPub has sent out a small holiday greeting today in the form of our first looks at production sample pieces of two figures from the third Transformers Figure Subscription Service. Absurdly obscure character Carzap from the IDW Bumblebee mold, Krok from stealth bomber Megatron, and Krok's pet Gatoraider from one of the many Arms Micron molds. Krok and Carzap both feature new heads which we're also getting our first real look at. Click through and check out the whole set of images!

Transformers-themed holiday greetings are coming in on Twitter! From TakaraTomy we have three Christmas-themed images which feature no less than five female characters in Santa Claus-themed minidresses, because Japan has a thing for those. But we also get pseudo-NSFW Cheetor's Drunken Naked Karaoke, and Santa Rattrap with his reindeer, Silverbolt, so there's something for everybody! Beast Wars Megatron's voice, David Kaye, has released his annual Christmas recording as well - this year it's a duet with Powerpuff Girl voice actress Tara Strong titled "Bubbles It's Cold Outside." Mind your ears, as Tara can really hit those high notes. Keep reading to see it all!
Autobase Aichi has posted new images of the two upcoming variations on Mega Drive Megatron! Sega Genesis Megatron is shown in-package (with a blank cartridge, making us wonder if labels for multiple Mega Drive games will be available) and the limited Sega Genesis Megatron is shown sitting next to someone's keyboard. Keep reading to see!
From site sponsor TFSource we've got a new early reveal from third party group Badcube. Continuing their series of figures in the Masterpiece style focusing on the Autobot Minicar characters, we've now got concept art for Wardog, their take on Warpath. While the art is likely representative of the kind of design detail they want to express in the figure, we'll just have to wait for prototypes to begin to decide how well this effort will come out. Keep reading to see the full image!
The Q-Transformers, the super-deformed figures based on the mobile device adaptation of Mystery of Convoy, will soon star in an animated series, and we've got a first look at the opening sequence. We don;t have details available at the moment, but the roughly 45 second opening may suggest a show following a ten minute episode structure in a shared timeslot. Click through and check out the video, cleaned up and provided by walruslaw.
Our friends at The Spacebridge have offered the fandom a holiday gift and uploaded to Youtube a copy of a promotional VHS tape released preceding the Japanese premiere of Transformers: The Movie in 1989. The video contains the trailer for the movie, including all of its early-animation goodies like Diaclone-colors Ultra Magnus. The nearly 20-minute video also features TV openings, toy commercials, and more. Check out the embed below to enjoy some classic Transformers advertising fun!
You may associate the word "gross" in a completely different way when it comes to Age of Extinction, but hate it or love it it was a monetary success. Box Office Mojo has published their yearly tally of worldwide box office numbers, and clocking in at just shy of $1.1 billion is Age of Extinction, followed by Guardians of The Galaxy. But take note, this success relies heavily on worldwide ticket sales, with China likely being a major contributor. In domestic numbers, AOE falls fifth earning just $245 million, beating its estimated budget - but not by much!

Put on your diaper and grab a 2-liter, as we guide you through 2014!
