Hisashi Yuki has tweeted out a photo of Unite Warriors Defensor having an out-of-body, or at least out-of-box experience, as the combined robot looks at its own separate components packaged neatly in their box set. The text of the tweet seems to suggest that Defensor is moving through production right now in order to be delivered on time this December, with Yuki asking us all to keep patient just a bit longer.

Rick Sellers, a voice actor who has contributed his talents to Transformers toys in the past has posted some interesting updates to his Facebook page. First is a lengthy post describing a job for Hasbro, referring to a new toy that couldn't be named, but subtle hints were included. Following this was a video, opening with the clear voice of Starscream - or Cobra Commander, perhaps. The toy is described as being intended for Robots in Disguise, making it seem that Starscream will finally have some presence - at least in the toyline. Keep reading for a copy of the text and embedded video!

Kilby is playing on PC and takes a while to stop being devastated, while diecast is on PS4 with a solid ~45 minute session to watch. We've got all the videos embedded, so click through and take a look!

Machinima has posted a pair of videos today for Transformers Devastation, just hours away from retail availability. Both videos focus on Optimus Prime, and the voice clips do a good job showing the Peter Cullen still has the more fun, energetic cartoon Optimus Prime inside him. One video highlights battle between Optimus and Megatron, while the second is a more general overview of Optimus through the game. We have both of them embedded, plus plenty of screencaps, so click through to check it out!
Right on the heels of discovery of the NYCC teaser on Hasbro Pulse, a Wal-Mart employee calling themselves Rex_Marlowe has posted to Reddit a photo of a Wal-Mart computer screen showing a "Powermaster OP" listing among other Leader Class toys. Smart money has this as a retool of Ultra Magnus, but anything is possible. Blaster is among the listed items as well, cementing its status as a Leader class toy also, a fact most everyone had already taken for granted. Will we see Titan Wars Powermaster Optimus in New York this week? Stay with us to find out!
Hasbro Pulse has updated with a teaser image of the figures to be revealed at NYCC! With "many robots set to be revealed" promised, the silhouettes show what appears to be the previously-leaked Titan Wars Leader Class Blaster - but who are those other two figures with him? Is the one on the right a Headmaster as it seems, or is it a trick of the posing? We'll find out later this week, but for now keep reading to see it for yourself and ponder!

With little time remaining before the game is released across the various platforms, the Transformers Game Facebook is cranking out the promo materials. Most recently we've gotten some concept art for the Decepticon generic ground troops, collectively the Battlechargers - one type based on the Generations Wheeljack body (like the Collectors Club exclusives) and another being a simplified version of Blitzwing. We also have nice art of Shockwave in robot and gun modes. Click through and check it all out!
Very shortly after a testshot appeared alerting us to its existence, Warrior Class Megatronus has been found at a Toys R Us in Reno, Nevada. Its packaging identifies it as an exclusive in the Clash Of The Transformers branding, but what's interesting is it features a different head sculpt than the testshot, sporting a full battle mask. Megatronus was thought to be part of a Warrior assortment also containing Fracture and recolors of Optimus and Bumblebee, and that may well still be the case, using the testshot's unmasked face to distinguish versions.
