Today we have more photos from guanchengphoto on Weibo which go to even greater lengths in making these figures really stand out and look great. It's debatable how necessary these are at this point, but if you're still looking for that perfect Devastator, these are sure giving it a good try! Click through for the mirrored photos.
Toy retailer The Entertainer have posted a pre-order listing for the Transformers Robots In Disguise Mini-Con Deployers Action Figure - Overload? We're not sure where this is going, but its sure to raise some questions about what or who is in store for the coming Transformers Robots In Disguise cartoon.

Olivus Prime of the TFW2005 Forums was able to sit down with Mark Ryan recently and talk Transformers movies. Ryan is the voice behind Revenge of the Fallen
's Jetfire and Age of Extinction
's Lockdown, and spoke of his inspiration for Jetfire, the amount of his own acting that was put into Lockdown... and perhaps most interestingly, a hint at the direction of Transformers 5 and the Transformers Cinematic Universe at large. Read on to see what he had to say!
This week's QTransformers II episode guest-stars Arcee, whose appearance in the series was just announced last week!

Keep reading to watch the Japanese language animation!
