Slated for 2017 and with no details yet given, it's far too early to know what shape Hasbro's new Transformers Fan Club will take. But even if we don't know what it will
be, we probably all have thoughts on what it should
be. RAC definitely does - and he feels the time is ripe for a change. Keep reading for his thoughts on the issue, this time written in the first

The Robots In Disguise Warrior-class Strongarm remold is joined in one photo by MP-32 Optimus Primal... making for possibly the best look at the scale of that figure we've yet seen!

RID/Transformers artist Andrew Griffith has posted his cover for the much-anticipated Transformers: Lost Light
#1, colored by Josh Perez and spotlighting the other (or perhaps we should say current
) crew of the ship whose name the comic shares. For those of you who didn't keep up with the "The Dying Of The Light" story arc in More Than Meets The Eye
, we'll leave it at there being reasons for this new crew. For everyone else, keep reading to see James Roberts' SDCC confession!

Only Marissa Faireborn remains to protect her as the two try to escape the infested White House. But with no clear route to safety, Marissa has to call the one number she knows she can trust.

Some "fallen off the truck" editions of Titans Return Deluxe Wave 3 are starting to appear on Chinese auction site Taobao, and by way of one such seller we actually have some fairly nice photos of of this round of toys. Hot Rod, Twinferno (formerly Doublecross), Triggerhappy, and Breakaway (Getaway) make up this batch. From this new set of photos it looks pretty conclusive Twinferno has no internal compartment for a Titan Master in alt mode, instead leaving it relegated to the outboard seat of the combined weapon. Click through to see the whole batch!
With noon in Japan having just passed, TakaraTomy Mall has posted the listing page on schedule for the next Unite Warriors set. Baldigus - or Ruination as Robots in Disguise watchers will tend to identify him - is everything you expected: Recolors of the Unite Warriors Combaticons. But just to give that little extra wrinkle, a few new weapons have been tossed in, each figure getting at least one newly added weapon. There's a whole set of stock photos to see, so keep reading for that and more info!
Paramount's UK arm has posted a video to their Youtube video featuring a highlight reel of "The Last Night", a London wrap party for ...the cars. Yes, it seems that in observance of principle filming concluding in the UK, a wrap party of sorts was carried out where the car props for Bumblebee, Barricade, and Crosshairs were out and available for photo ops one evening. The guests at the party seemed to be having a great time, but unfortunately during the one minute video, the cars had no comments to share. The video is embedded below, so take a look for some glamour shots of the vehicles!
Todd Ferguson has posted an interesting find on Facebook - it seems to be an image of the movie Optimus figure just recently revealed via color guide leak! Comparison shows the details to match between instances, so this seems to be legit. Having a full color physical sample at this early stage seems like it supports our theory that this may be a "first edition" preview release for The Last Knight's
toyline. If so, and it follows the same timeline, it could be at retail as early as February of next year! We put together the photo along with the previous color guide so you can compare them yourself. Keep reading to see it now!
Thanks to our pals over at the Allspark we have a very tuneful bit of news about the Original Transformers G1 Musical Scores Coming from Sony Records Next Summer. According to word they have recieved from composer Robert J Walsh is that he working on these original recordings for re-release in May of next year. There is even word that we may get a 5.1 surround mix along with other soundtracks from G.I. Joe, My Little Pony, and Jem & the Holograms.
The official TakaraTomy Transformers Twitter account, @TF_pr, would like to remind you that Unite Warriors Lynxmaster is due very soon! Lynxmaster is the TakaraTomy version of Sky Reign, the Sky Lynx-based combiner from Combiner Wars. Keep reading to see the image!
Following up on the reveal of Tyrantron, Mastermind Creations posted a design graphic that reveals the toy's second configuration as the gladiatorial mining robot Tyrantronus. The change is achieved with alternate chest, head, and shoulder parts, as well as involving a different arm weapon. The giant drill suggests that the figure will be able to be configured as a vehicle other than the jet mode seen already. If it can become a drill tank, it probably wouldn't be hard to make a battle tank out of either. Keep reading to see the images.
The Facebook page for MMC's Ocular Max offshoot has posted new photos showing the prototype for their Perfection Series Saltus - yet another third party Masterpiece Springer. This one is noted to offer alternate heads for cartoon or toy influence, as well as differing shoulder arrangements to match, all while boasting 40 points of articulation. The Facebook post projects availability in the second quarter of 2017, but of course no pricing is available at this stage. Click through now to see the mirrored photos!
Mastermind Creations shared out some photos of their various displayed goods via their Facebook page today. Their Masterpiece-alike offerings seemed to be a prominent player, including a hand-painted yellow version of their Trailbreaker to represent its Diaclone colors, seemingly to measure interest in it as a potential future release. Many Reformatted figures were on hand, including the Tyrantron IDW-style Megatron we saw first earlier today. There's a nice big gallery, so click through and start having a look!
FansToys certainly has no problem with ambition! Their latest reveal, FT-20, is nothing less than an Omega Supreme designed to interact with Masterpiece Transformers. The figure takes its cues largely from the cartoon, with its overly boxy form as a robot, and simplified alternate mode look. But where this really tries to sell itself is its size, and as you can see in the mirrored gallery, it suitably towers over basically everything. More alarming is the hint that FansToys might have a Devastator on the way at the same size! Keep reading to see everything!
