After making collections of all of these pop culture staples, which was brandon’s dream, Han Cholo gained the license from Hasbro to make Officially Licensed Transformers Jewelry. Gearing up for the release of the many exclusives at San Diego Comic con, Han Cholo found it fitting to make their release date of the Transformers jewelry collection to go along with the release of Transformers: The Dark Knight.
This August, General Joe Colton, the original G.I. JOE, will take the fight directly to the TRANSFORMERS home world of Cybertron in the Hasbro Comic Book Event of 2017 – First Strike!

Thanks to Matt for the heads up about the new Transformers licensed "Ready to Bear FW17" merchandise made by Italian luxury fashion house, Moschino. Those looking for ultra-high-end fashion Transformers collectibles will be happy to find these premium priced products that are a strange amalgamation of Optimus Prime and a Teddy Bear. Which, is less puzzling than the prices. The prices star at $120 for phone cover and work their way up to $1,050 for a nightshirt. No kidding, read on to see the images and more info in the gallery after the jump.
Looks like we'll be getting a definitive guide on the Takara Diaclone toys from Happy Japan in July. The product listing doesn't say much, though its pretty same to assume what we will see. The listing does give us information that the Diaclone book will also include a digital data collection DVD including historical catalogues and memorable TV CM that colored the world of Diaclone with fascinating stories and illustrations! The Japanese language book is listed for 3,780 JPY / $35 USD to ship next month.
