Autobase Aichi has posted images of new characters previously revealed by TFW2005 as appearing in a recent update to the RID smartphone game! Included are Warrior class Sideswipe and Jazz, One-Step Optimus Prime, Drift, Fracture, and Thunderhoof as well as Legion-class Fixit and Underbite! It's good to see more Decepticons in the line, even if personally I'd prefer to see them in the Warrior class. Odds are good we'll see these figures at New York Toy Fair 2015 in a couple weeks. Until then, keep reading to see the screenshots!
Hisashi Yuki has once again posted an image of the upcoming Masterpiece Star Saber, but this time the V-Star seems to be giving Arcee, Windblade, and Chromia a lift. Most notable about the photo is the fact that Arcee sadly uses the open hands which are not very good at holding her accessories - you can see in the photo how far her gun sticks out of her hand. All three figures in what Yuki seems to refer to as the "Woman Robot" series are due to be released in Japan on Valentine's Day, February 14th. Keep reading to see for yourself!
Transformers Asia has posted a large image to their Facebook page showing off everything that comes with Ultimate Optimus Prime! Based on the TakaraTomy Jetwing Optimus Prime, itself a further modification of Revenge of the Fallen Leader-class Optimus Prime, this version of the toy seems to come with everything that was ever
included with any version of that figure plus a new "Knuckle" attachment. Prime now has spiked knuckles for all his robot-eviscerating hijinx! Keep reading to see for yourself!
The Higekuma Toy Blog has posted an extensive gallery of photos of the first half of Legends LG-08, Swerve and Phaser! A recolor of Generations Legends-class Swerve's US Mini-Con Flanker, Phaser looks at first glance to be in a more traditional space-shuttle white, but there was a second reason for that: Phaser's gun mode has been painted to look as much as possible like My First Blaster, the remedial training gun given to Swerve in the pages of More Than Meets The Eye
! Keep reading for a sampling of photos and a link to the Higekuma Toy Blog so you can see them all!
Planet X has updated their Facebook page with photos of a color sample of the upcoming PX-04 Summanus, a Fall of Cybertron version of Snarl! With a sword very similar to FoC Grimlock's and what appears to be a Scatter Blaster, Summanus is looking really good! Planet X says that this isn't the final production version, so we'll be sure to keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, keep reading to see the photos!

Autobase Aichi has posted a pair of blurry, fleeting images from German Toy Fair of Combiner Wars Devastator! There's not much else to be said except that he does look like Devastator and does appear, judging by the Silverbolt in the background, to be larger than Superion. Check it out!
Isn't it nice to find out about an action figure the old-fashioned way:
on store shelves? 2005 Forums member Kaiser has found a previously unknown Rescue Bots Blurr on Hong Kong store shelves! No information is known about when this might hit in the US, but it was found with the latest version of Rescue Bots Optimus Prime- so it's possible Blurr may have taken Salvage's place in that assortment. Keep reading to see the photo!

Site Sponsor TFSource has posted images and a preorder page for the Sega Genesis version of the Mega Drive Megatron mold! Due in February at a price of $119, Genesis Megatron sports the changes related to the US release of the Mega Drive console: a Sega Genesis logo on both the console and controller, a color change (the purple is now on Megatron and the red is now on the Genesis), and a different molded font for the "16-Bit" mark on the torso. Oh, and of course the US label for the included Sonic The Hedgehog
cart. Keep reading to see!
DX9 has updated their Weibo page with images of their Micro Worlds X05 figure, a Legends-scaled version of G1 Cyclonus! It's decent looking for the scale, with a slightly squashed jet more that wouldn't look out of place with your QTransformers. It even seems to come with a weapon patterned after Cyclonus' Targetmaster partner Nightstick! Keep reading to see more!

The Collector's Club figures aren't the only exclusive Transformers to have fallen into the hands of eBayer lena81822 of late. Also in the seller's listings is Transformers Cloud Hellwarp! A Beast Wars II-inspired recolor of Generations Sky-Byte, Hellwarp is an upgrade of Skywarp (with Cloud appropriating Takara's version of Fall of Cybertron Skywarp to serve as that universe's version of the character). Shark Mode isn't shown, but there's a solid gallery of robot mode photos. Keep reading to see!
Maketoys has posted teaser images and a brief description for a new line of figures titled Re:Master. The name and text seem to imply a "new scale," and puts heavy emphasis on the concept of scale in general. Current speculation is that the figures - interpretations of Chromedome, Hound, and Inferno shown only in silhouette- will be in the post-MP-10 Masterpiece scale, but nothing is known as of yet. Keep reading to see!
