It's Golden Week in Japan! Apparently Hisashi Yuki has taken some time off to play the Japanese rhythm game Prism Paradise
. Looks like he got one of the low-tier prizes in their promotional campaign - and Hardhead's not taking it well either. We also have an image of Hardhead in better times, using his Titan Master vehicle in its weapon mode. (Which looks like nothing so much as an upturned tank, which it is.) Keep reading to see!
It's a good day for artistic endeavors by Transformers fans! Tonight we have a batch of photos to bring you from Alvaro Valdivieso Paredes, who's gone to Facebook posting his custom built Autobot starship Ark as seen in the G1 cartoon. Though this one might take some cues from the mild redesign it had for its appearance in Beast Wars rather than being strictly original-cartoon-derived. Though no distinct scale is given, seeing the real estate it occupies on tabletops helps give a sense of its bulk. While it may not be the biggest ever, it's no less impressive, and you can keep reading to see it in full!

Get a look at the figures along with a fun shot of Runamuck surfing on soon to be released Unite Warriors Blast-Off figure. Read on to see the images and google translated comments from TFYuki.
It's certainly not a new thing - Transformers fans wanting to represent a favorite character can and do show remarkable talent in recreating robots in costume form. And so it was with Anthony Darkenstein (I so hope that's his real last name) who created a fantastic costume of G1 Galvatron to wear around the Calgary Expo that took place this weekend. This skillful effort was rewarded as he managed to turn heads not just at the show, but all over the internet as photos of him made their way around social media. We've collected a few of them, so keep reading to have a look for yourself!

Hisashi Yuki has posted a couple new photos to Twitter! Most recently is a photo of all five Technobots in their vehicle modes as Yuki ramps up the promotion of Unite Warriors Computicon/Computron. Secondly, we've got the upcoming Legends LG23 Galvatron paying his Unite Warriors Grand self a visit. Surely that would end well. Keep reading to see the photos!
The Cyber Battalion & Cyber Commander figures
raised eyebrows last year - released pretty much by surprise, the large, simplified transforming figures were a virtual exclusive of overseas markets. No more! A Hong Kong-based eBay seller has posted Cyber Battalion Optimus Prime and Starscream with Universal Studios Exclusive stickers on their boxes. Keep reading to see!
A poster by the name of xywnhy on the SunSon Son Facebook page has posted a gallery of images showing off a new knockoff of MP-24 Star Saber. While the guide to identifying the figure contained within is in Chinese, several of the details make it self-evident which is which... at least, on close
examination. If you see an impossibly cheap Star Saber somewhere, just remember: buyer beware. Keep reading for more info on this new bootleg.
Thanks to John DeLuna we've got several more photos of the now-shipping subscription service 4 Needlenose, showing the figure in much better detail. With close up looks at both Targetmaster partners, as well as good looks at both modes to clearly see the new deco applied over the Firefly mold, this is our best look so far at the first out from this TFSS batch. Keep reading to see all of the photos!
SORRY, there isn't a new toy but we do have this strange post on the official Transformers facebook page featuring the base-former Fortress Maximus hoisting a pillow well above his head for scale or something.
Whatever it is, it has caught the attention of Grimlock and Soundwave who look prepared to throw down on some pillow action too. In any event, good old Fort Max is welcome for sleepovers here are TFormers, any time!
The mightiest AUTOBOT just got mightier, with this feature figure based on the hit TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE animat ed series!
This large OPTIMUS PRIME figure comes with his AEROBOLT MINI - CON figure that powers him up with pop - out wings, lights and sounds!

boxful of cool robots he wants to sell you: Unite Warriors UW07 Bruticus! The first drop in what will inevitably become a deluge is a shot of the individual Combaticons in their robot modes: Brawl, Blast Off, Vortex, Swindle, and Onslaught! Click through to have a closer look!

TakaraTomy has posted new photos of Hypersurge Optimus Prime! TAV50 is a less Machine Wars-inspired take on the Power Surge Optimus Prime mold due out in the US later this year, but still sports the wings and his armor/Mini-Con partner. The Japanese version is due out June 25th for 8,650 Yen. Keep reading to have a look!
Prolific photographer Blacklai has gotten a hold of Unite Warriors Grand Galvatron! What follows is an excerpt of his larger photo gallery, but it's enough to get an excellent look at the set complete with packaging, "Unite Warriors Off-Shot" illustration, and all modes of all figures as well as comparison with US versions and/or other uses of the base mold. Keep reading!
UK toy distributor A.B.Gee has posted some listings for early Titans Return products. While the Deluxe assortment has no pictures yet, and the other size classes are only images we've already seen, the Voyager assortment does feature a few new photos. Sentinel Prime represents his assortment, and is presented as the "final product" stock photos featuring actual plastic colors and deco, along with an in-package shot. And fans of bright colors should be pleased: If anything, Sentinel's orange looks more fluorescent than ever! Click through to check out the pictures and see for yourself!
KFC's popular Transistor figure is getting a new look with this shattered repaint version.

An enterprising fan in China has apparently decided to take it upon himself to add a Metroplex of appropriate scale to help display his collection. We don't know the name of the builder (but if you do please let us know!) but these photos show some impressive building work, starting with a metal frame. One image even suggests it's designed to lay down for the battlestation/ship mode, though that's not depicted in the finished image. Despite being taller than a human, it seems this is still not quite big enough, being shown with Smallest Transformers. But it's still super impressive building! Keep reading to see the pictures!
