Transformers News and Reviews
Conventions Center
Fun Publications have begun the process of hyping up Botcon 2015, coming to an obscure and remote suburb of Chicago near you next summer! Today they've stated that the official reveal for the box set theme will be made during the week of New Year's, with toy reveals to follow soon after. They followed this with a series of conditions to explain what the set would not represent, launching a flurry of speculative activity for what remains. You can click through and see the original tweets and find out what's off the table this year!
Generations
The Transformers Facebook page has uploaded a Designer Desk image, featuring the newest Aerialbot, Alpha Bravo. The Slingshot substitute is shown at each of the major design steps, from sketch, to model, to production-plastic sample and deco sheet. But the real bonus from this glimpse behind the scenes are the head sketch and helicopter art. The latter could very well be what to expect of a Blades reuse of this mold, and while the head is quite generic, might that be the pre-tool alternate? Only Toy Fair can tell us, but in the meantime keep reading to check out the full image!
Generations
Pre-holiday toy distribution can be an amazing thing sometimes, as the United States has gone from zero to nearly full availability of Combiner Wars in a short few days! Pushing the cycle forward we have our first reports of Combiner Wars toys hitting store shelves, with the Legends assortment making it to Target locations, priced at $9.99. So far Austin, Texas and North Little Rock, Arkansas have been confirmed and more are sure to follow. These will be everywhere soon, so hold tight and save your money!

Age of Extinction
The official ILMVisualFX Youtube channel has posted a new video featuring ILMs visual effects work for Michael Bays Transformers: Age of Extinction. See a prevideo of what is said to represent a fraction of the work created by over 400 artists, scientists, and engineers working with a world-class production team. Including the films Visual Effects Supervisor, Scott Farrar, who was honored with the Hollywood Visual Effects Award on November 14, 2014.

Age of Extinction
Planet Iacon have posted a couple of new images showing us an DMK03 AOE Optimus Prime Dual Model Kit out of the box. Get a look at the newest model kit from Takara Tomy that fans will be able to assemble and decorate as they like And this one looks like its going to need a lot of decorating to make it look anything like the official images. Get a look at the figure with close up of the head sculpt below and the official images for comparison.
Age of Extinction
The official Takara Tomy site has been updated with images and details for their Clear Movie Bumblebee Q Transformers figure. This is another of the mini-figures being offered as Toys R Us Exclusive in their onging prize campaign for the Transformers Lost Age (Age of Extinction) movie. Get a look at these transparent yellow cast of TF4 Bumblebee in robot and his Q-style alternate mode along with google translated details.
Generation 1
Thanks to Weibo member transformers we have news and an image giving us a first look at a new Optimus Prime project from Ori Toy. The shot shows what appears to be some kind of bust of the Autobot Leader. Juding from the name, it could a die-cast-like version of Prime's torso detailing and all the drool worth goodness that goes with. Check out the image till we know more.
Generations
Want to get started on the best Transformers comic ever written for cheap? Comixology has the first volume of James Roberts & Alex Milne's More Than Meets The Eye on sale for $4 for a limited time! This includes the first three issues of the book plus the one-shot "The Death of Optimus Prime" that immediately preceded the beginning of MTMTE and Robots In Disguise. Keep reading for the link!
MasterPiece
An eagle-eyed member of the 2005 forums has posted an image of Combiner Wars Legends Bombshell's instructions that seems to show linework for a new Masterpiece Megatron. The other toys whose art is used are MP-10 Optimus Prime and MP-21 Bumblebee, so the Megatron that we can see in bits and pieces is possibly the first glimpse we're getting of the rumored new Masterpiece Megatron. Keep reading to see and decide for yourself!
MasterPiece
TFormers forum member Goktimus Prime- who was the translator for MP-22 Ultra Magnus' Asian-market instructions! -gave us a heads-up on a potential error in those instructions. A part that is supposed to be moved 90 degrees for transformation is instead labeled 180. Luckily the diagram is easy enough to follow even so, but thanks to Goktimus for pointing this out and setting the record straight! Keep reading for an image showing the mistake and the correction!
 
MasterPiece
Hisashi Yuki and the official TakaraTomy Transformers account have posted a variety of new and upcoming products on Twitter today! First up of course is the ubiquitous MP-24 Masterpiece Star Saber doing his best to impersonate Santa Claus. Then we also get pictures of a limited clear yellow QTransformers Bumblebee, the detailed Dual Model Kit of Age of Extinction Optimus Prime, and evidence that MP-22 Ultra Magnus can be detached from his trailer! Keep reading to see it all!
MasterPiece
Robot Kingdom has posted images of MP-22 Ultra Magnus and its Hasbro Asia bonus collector coin! We've reached the "in-package photos" part of the robot toy news cycle, so odds are good those who preordered MP-22 will have him soon! Keep reading to see the photos for yourself!
Generation 1
The WIP Department Facebook page has posted an extensive gallery from Toy Soul 2014! Among the new things on the page is one heretofore unknown Transformers product from Kids Logic: an SD G1 Devastator! We'll have more info on that as it becomes available, but for now keep reading to see it- and check out WIP Department's page for a LOT of non-Transformers stuff from Toy Soul!
RID 2015
The official RID2015 game is now up on iTunes! The game is an action game with an overhead view and also allows you to scan the shields on your Robots in Disguise toys to unlock bonuses for gameplay. Furthermore, developer Touch has posted a lengthy (35 minute) gameplay video so you can get a good sense of what the game is like. Keep reading to see the video, and screenshots, and for a link to the game!
Age of Extinction
In a recent interview with MTV, Mark Wahlberg was asked whether his time with the Transformers movie franchise had concluded. Wahlberg announced he had committed to making additional films in the series, and went on to reference "Mr. Bay" when vaguely alluding to going back to work. We can expect to see a return of Cade Yeager, but whether this also indicates Michael Bay has (again) agreed to direct after saying he was moving on or if Wahlberg is simply misinformed about the current state of affairs remains to be seen. Click through and watch the embedded video!
Third Party
Play With This Too has been busy this week with reveals on the latest episode of the TFYLP podcast and on their Facebook page with Play With This Toosday. The TFYLP podcast interviewed Rik Alvarez about his latest Head Shots, three action figure heads by former Hasbro sculptor Mark Wong. These three heads are called Bruiser, Tark and Secton, and match well with some of the bodies they ave already announced.
Generation 1
This is a Transformers concept by Andrew Mercer who started working on this concept back in 2011. Knowing that 2014 was the 30th anniversary year, he thought this line would be a cool way to celebrate the rich history of the brand. Figures that could reformat between different Generations in the same way they could Transform from robot to vehicle. Transformat = Reformat + Transform.
Age of Extinction
Toy Soul 2014 is happening now in Hong Kong, and we've gotten a few new pictures of Transformers-related products! Toy-people.com has images of 3A's super-detailed Movie Bumblebee figure, as well as a poseable Age of Exinction Grimlock and SD G1 Bumblebee both from Kids Logic. Keep reading to see the photos, and check back over the weekend to see what else turns up at Toy Soul!
