Transformers News and Reviews
Generations
Hasbro has issued an official press release announcing the Combiner Wars Fan-Built Combiner Poll! The poll is now live as part of the official Transformers brand app on iOS and Android, and a bonus question will be hosted on ToysRUs' Twitter account on February 18th to determine the Combiner's special power. Keep reading for the full press release!
Animated
Jim Sorenson has posted the art for the upcoming Complete Allspark Almanac to his blog, Disciples of Boltax! The book combines and expands the two individual Allspark Almanac releases into the single best reference book you will ever own for Transformers Animated. Sorenson estimates that the book will hit comic stores on February 18th, and Amazon.com shortly afterwards. Keep reading to see the art!
RID 2015
2005 Forums member Sioce has found RID2015 Warrior class Optimus Prime at retail! The second wave of figures includes Prime and Drift, with the latter not yet spotted. But if you're near a Target in Temecula, CA, you may want to stop in and have a look for yourself. Keep reading for the photo and for a link to the original post!
Collectors Club
Clearly trying to take some control and get in front of the unauthorized leaks, Fun Publications has posted a single photo of Subscription Service 3's Serpent O.R. figure to their Facebook page. Based on a robotic form of GI Joe villain Serpentor, this recolor of Generations Scourge (featuring the unreleased to the US Ratbat head) uses a number of strategic paint apps to suggest snake features and give Serpentor's traditional costume colors.

Collectors Club
Can we get the entirety of Figure Subscription Service 3 revealed before the end of the day? We're making good progress toward that as Photobucket user "Xamot" has posted two new images of Krok, a retool of IDW stealth bomber Megatron, complete with Gatoraider Arms Micron partner. The same user also put up a photo of a few bagged samples of Carzap leading to speculation these may be the first two pieces in TFSS 3. Of course, Fun Publications could choose to shuffle the order now to maintain surprise. Click through for the photos!
Go-Bots
Hasbro has filed with the US Patent Office for a pair of very broad trademarks on the name "Go-Bots," applying to both Entertainment and Consumer Products. Pretty much everything is on the table from TV shows and movies to games and of course, toys. It's unlikely that we're going to see everything that the trademarks cover - a GoBots tabletop RPG? I don't think so - but if Hasbro were to want to create anything new for Go-Bots or even just reissue Challenge of the GoBots on DVD, this would be the first step. Keep reading for a link to the filings and a list of what exactly is covered!
Generations
The Collector's Club figures aren't the only exclusive Transformers to have fallen into the hands of eBayer lena81822 of late. Also in the seller's listings is Transformers Cloud Hellwarp! A Beast Wars II-inspired recolor of Generations Sky-Byte, Hellwarp is an upgrade of Skywarp (with Cloud appropriating Takara's version of Fall of Cybertron Skywarp to serve as that universe's version of the character). Shark Mode isn't shown, but there's a solid gallery of robot mode photos. Keep reading to see!
Collectors Club
Following our first look at Lio Convoy, we've also found a listing for Carzap giving us a comprehensive look at this figure's presumably final production state. This sample seems to lack the Kreon GB Blackrock accessory set tying the character to its incredibly obscure Block Town origins, but gives a good look at this figure which will ship as part of Transformers Figure Subscription Service 3 later this year. Keep reading to check out all the mirrored photos!
Collectors Club
Ebay seller lena81822 has turned up once again with a first in hand look at a new toy. The Orion Pax recolor Lio Convoy is due in the next few months as the yearly freebie figure given to everyone who has an active subscription to the Transformers Collectors Club. Notable on this sample, where the original mockup showed wide ornamental fins on the sides of the head, those are absent and appear as though they've been cut off after the head came out of the mold. The Club's problems with new head toolings seem like they might be coming around yet again! Click through to see the full mirrored gallery.
Generation 1 Japan
Greetings Sourcefans! This week we're excited to have several new preorders from Takara, including Transformers-Q, Transformers Adventure, and Transformers Unite - TU-01 Superion!
 
Third Party
Maketoys has posted teaser images and a brief description for a new line of figures titled Re:Master. The name and text seem to imply a "new scale," and puts heavy emphasis on the concept of scale in general. Current speculation is that the figures - interpretations of Chromedome, Hound, and Inferno shown only in silhouette- will be in the post-MP-10 Masterpiece scale, but nothing is known as of yet. Keep reading to see!
Age of Extinction
Transformers Asia has announced a new high-end movie Optimus Prime based on the Jetwing Optimus Prime mold that was previously exclusive to Japan. Ultimate Optimus Prime is a highly-painted version of that mold said to be "Loaded with Accessories and Weapons!" More details as they become available, but for now keep reading to check out the photo!
RID 2015
Amazon Japan has filled in lots of high res shots of the first batches of figures for the Transformers Adventure line, the branding for TakaraTomy's version of Robots in Disguise (2015), padded out with lots of figures from other lines. This batch covers from TAV-01 to -12 consisting of RID Warriors, a little Generations, Animated, and Transformers Prime, and TE-01 to -05, covering the initial RID One-Step Changers, Hyperchange Grimlock, and the garbage truck character created for Age of Extinction. We've got a lot of photos, so keep reading and check them out!
MasterPiece
Amazon Japan has posted a series of new photos with their preorder page for Masterpiece G2 Bumblebee, coming out this summer. The shiny gold version of Bumblebee will come with a jetpack accessory derived from the G1 cartoon episode Dinobot Island, as well as having the previously Amazon exclusive toy-accurate faceplate in addition to the two regular face options. Click through to check out the new pictures!
Generations
Ozformers member Bidoofdude put 2 and 2 together concerning two previously-rumored Generations Legends, and got a promising response from Hasbro! The known Combiner Wars Legends-class figures skip numbers 11-17, and so an email was sent to Hasbro asking if the previous Walmart leaks Gnaw with Gnash and Brawn with Mudslinger might be among their numbers. The answer is less than concrete, but more than maybe - keep reading to see!
Third Party
The amusingly named Xipoo company is reportedly manufacturing block kits that are in the vague style of Kre-O Microcombiners, but fully brick-built instead of minifigure based. A series of five kits features dinosaurs that can change to robot models, and a full set can be rebuilt to make "Ultimate Warrior Dino King". We have a few sales listing images mirrored, and while we might not recommend trying to purchase these, they're an entertaining look at the more creative than usual side of the knockoff trade, much like the lego-style Angry Bird Transformers figures we reported back in December.
Angry Birds
Comic Book Resources has brought out the full size preview for the third issue of the Angry Birds Transformers miniseries a bit early for us this week. But that means that everyone enjoying this story that's been described by RAC as a fun, Saturday morning cartoon style experience in his reviews of the first and second issue. You can click through and check out the preview now, and then come back late tomorrow night when we bring you the first review anywhere of the third issue!
Third Party
Badcube has debuted their newest upcoming products this afternoon, taking on a trio of figures based on the Insecticons. Badcube says they should scale well to their other products Brawny and the upcoming Wardog, but they don't offer any objective size reference so far. But, they say these figures should release around the same time as Wardog, so they may not be very far off. Click through to check out the photos!
