We have the video embedded below, and we'll be bringing you an album of still captures from the video very soon, so check back soon. Keep reading to watch the trailer!
Once more from our friend on the forums TMan978 we have a video to share.

John Barber carries on his writing role from The Transformers, and art for the new title provided by Kei Zama on lines and Josh Burcham on colors. And from what we've been able to see of the issue already, it looks like this is a fantastic team coming together. You can expect our full review to post early this coming week, and in the meantime find the preview pages mirrored below!

Thanks to our friend on the forums, TMan978, we've got a new video tonight showing off Legends Class Bumblebee from Titans Return wave 3. While most everyone has focused on Gnaw out of that wave, Bumblebee has flown a little under the radar since this assortment started to become available. In the video, we get to see the robot mode's detail and poseability, the transformation, and a great look at the vehicle mode. The video is embedded below, so click through to watch!
Have you ever wondered what your Masterpiece Transformers might look like if they were 90% transparent? Probably not, which I think makes this find all the more interesting. In the Transformers Masterpiece Zone Facebook group, Justin Hollers shared some images of what you get when you photograph Masterpiece figures. With X-rays. The metal components remain opaque, but everything else becomes translucent. Interestingly, some of these even end up looking like schematics or CAD lines. It's an interesting and unique look at these figures. Check it out mirrored below!

The Transformers Facebook page has posted a quick video feature to observe the impending tenth anniversary of the live action movie series. The clip uses toys to depict the design evolution of Optimus Prime - kind of a necessity since the on-screen version stayed so long without significant visual changes - starting with, oddly, a small Titanium figure to represent 2007, all the way up to the much-teased Premiere Edition Voyager anticipated to come out ahead of the general release of The Last Knight's toyline. We've got screencaps below, so keep reading!

Namphamvmr, the reddit user who brought us the first gallery of photos of Skyshadow, has also given us a first look anywhere at more of the upcoming fourth wave of Titans Return. The photos of the package show the wave cross-sell, and in the Deluxe slot is Topspin! The Jumpstarter had been rumored a while back, but this is our first true verification, as well as first idea of its appearance. Topspin will join Perceptor in comprising Deluxe wave 4. Keep reading for the (sadly low-res) image!
It seems reddit user Namphamvmr is a very lucky person, as he or she received as a birthday gift a very early in package copy of Leader Class Skyshadow! Namphamvmr has posted a gallery to imgur featuring the figure, and while they're not all the best shots, there's a lot that turned out to make this toy look even more appealing than it did when revealed in Hasbro's exhibit space in New York in October. We've got the photos mirrored for your convenience, so click through and take a look!
Every so often, wires get crossed at the distribution level. Such is the stuff of Collector Legend made - like the time TJ Maxx got a wave of Generations Voyagers before they made their debut at full retail price. Or the sightings of Titans Return Brainstorm at Walmart earlier this year! This time, TFW2005 forums member smf2045 has spotted a full case of six Combiner Wars Grooves at an Orangevale, California Walmart. Unless more reports come in I wouldn't go out hunting at your local store, but keep reading to see the photographic proof all the same!
The Hasbro US release of Groove earlier this year was not the smoothest process due to unavoidable production issues.

It may not last very long in stock at that rate, so best jump on this one while you can! Keep reading for the product link.

The trailer for Michael Bay's TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT has reached 100M views following its debut on December 5. A first look at the Paramount Pictures film was released to the world during Monday Night Football and quickly became the studio's biggest trailer launch to date.
As happy as I was with Hot Rod, Triggerhappy goes just that bit more beyond. Now sure, I have a prior attachment to the character design that might otherwise inform such a thing, but imagine how pleased I was to see that even if that hadn't been the case, Triggerhappy got made really, really well! I can't wait to see what comes along for this base design in later reuses and pretool alternate parts!
