Hasbro's website has posted new images of the Platinum Edition Blitzwing & Astrotrain! Blitzwing looks just about as good in tank mode as he did as a robot or jet... and so does Astrotrain. These recolors really have been fascinating to see, and I can't want to see if I can ask more about them at BotCon this year. Keep reading to see!
TAGHobby has posted a couple of magazine scans showing off MP-25 Tracks, now in full color and good resolution! The toy's looking sharp in both modes - all three
modes rather - and nicely poseable. We also get a nice shot of the whole package in one place, with Tracks in Flight Mode on his stand and Raoul and Blaster on the base. Don't expect anything from that Blaster but a Raoul-sized radio, because they are both tiny.

Play With This Too have updated their facebook page with new images of the Desolataur and D-Mon Painted Prototype. As they have updated: "We would have loved to have had the Desolataur prototype painted before our Kickstarter campaign began. Unfortunately life sometimes gets in the way of things... So here finally are the preview pics of the painted Desolataur prototype with more pics to come hopefully tomorrow!" Read on to see the images.
Full Metal Hero has posted a story showing that Floro Dery, the character designer for much of the G1 cartoon including The Transformers: The Movie
, is selling a new print of Unicron on Etsy. Done in 2014, the print displays a colorful, highly-detailed version of Unicron ripping a planet - perhaps Cybertron? - in half. The print is one of a kind and the asking price is $500 US. Keep reading to see and for links!
Site sponsor Robot Kingdom has posted images of the upcoming Hybrid Metal Figuration Age of Extinction Bumblebee from Herocross, a large figure featuring (as the name implies) diecast metal in its construction. It's due for July at a price of $130, and looks decently poseable and highly accessorized as far as SD figures go. Keep reading to see!
Autobase Aichi has clued us in to Amazon Japan's new postings for April's Transformers Adventure releases! The Japanese equivalent of Robots In Disguise is including a variety of Japan-only releases and/or releases of earlier figures that didn't fit into other lines. This month, it's TAV13 Nemesis Prime - a recolor of Warrior-class Optimus - for 2700 Yen; TAV14 is Beast Hunters Voyager Ultra Magnus for 4320 Yen; and lastly there's Big Optimus Prime from the "Easy Dynamic" collection, known here as Hyperchange Optimus Prime. He'll run you 3780 Yen. Keep reading for the photos!
The next two figures for the popular war in pocket series are announced: X05 tyrant and X06 Hurricane! These figures stand 10CM/4 tall and are fully transformable. Get a look at the images of Tyrant a homage to the G1 character Galvatron, and Hurricane that is a Cyclonus homage.
That was quick, huh? Autobase Aichi has found a small photo showing off the entire wave from Japanese retailer Nonstop. While it's difficult to make most of them out, there seems to be RID Drift and Fixit in addition to the G1 Prime, G1 Shockwave, and Beast Wars Megatron we reported on before.
Keep reading to squint at the photo!
Autobase Aichi has posted images from the Anime Japan 2015 show!

Attendees were also able to get their hands stamped with special codes to be scanned into the Transformers Adventure app. Keep reading to see!
The Tiny Titans minifigure line has solicited its third wave of blindbagged figures through Diamond Comics, and the PREVIEWSworld website has sample images! Revealed for this set are G1 Optimus Prime and Shockwave, but more surprisingly a Beast Wars Megatron! Most of the paint seems to have gone into the heads - robot and dinosaur - but even so it looks like fun. Keep reading to see!
Alfes2010 of the Higekuma Toy Blog has also posted images of Masterpiece Exhaust! Released the same day as MP-24 Star Saber, Exhaust's checkered history means you may have trouble getting him in the USA... but Japan isn't having that problem, as you can see. Also included with Exhaust is the Immobilizer from the G1 cartoon - keep reading to see!
ToysRUs Japan has posted new images of Black Knight Optimus Prime! Based on Armor Knight Optimus Prime, the heavily-reworked version of Generations Leader-class Optimus, Black Knight Prime is every bit as extensively painted as the Armor Knight version and looks great. The figure is due for release in August at a price of 8,638 Yen after tax. Keep reading for the photos!
Ever-prolific toy photographer Masabon1980 has posted images to his Photobucket of Transformers Cloud Hellwarp! Based conceptually off of the similarly sharky Hellscream from Beast Wars Second, Hellwarp is a new body for Skywarp based off of the Generations Sky-Byte mold. Keep reading to see!
I'm not sure what it is that compels people in the vicinity of Masterpiece Star Saber to take as many pictures of it as humanly possible, but Twitter user/Higekuma Toy Blog operater Alfes2010 has taken 20+ new photos of the just-released Autobot Supreme Commander. Featured are pictures of Star Saber in Robot Mode, plus Saber in both modes and the V-Star Transtector, plus the tiny Brain of Courage shown with various other figures for scale. Keep reading to see!
Maybe not the whole thing, but pretty close! Hisashi Yuki has taken to his @TFYUKI Twitter account with images of the Transformers Adventure line (still a better name than Robots In Disguise)! Included are images of the first wave of the line followed by giving special attention to the massive Three-Step "Big Bumblebee" plus Beast Hunters carryovers Dreadwing and Bloody Knockout. Keep reading to see!
IDW artist and colorist Priscilla Tramontano has posted her alternate cover to Windblade #4, which will feature the epilogue to Combiner Wars. The cover shows Windblade hovering over a riot scene - just another day on Starscream's Cybertron, or is this another part of the Transformers' universe? We won't know until June, so until then keep reading to see the image!
Hasbro Asia is continuing their practice of adding giveaways to their releases of high-end Japanese products with a special coin to be included with MP-24 Star Saber! It's difficult to say whether the coin itself is triangular or just the window on the packaging, but a triangular coin would be really neat. Keep reading to see the image!
Autobase Aichi has updated their previous story
with a couple more catalog scans. A second page of Cyber 7 Series figures has appeared, showing a Movie/Prime-inspired Bumblebee and also a movie-colored Grimlock. Bumblebee in particular looks to be a scaled-up Cyberverse Legion figure. Also shown is the Platinum Triple Changers set showing off Blitzwing and Astrotrain's out-of-nowhere new paint jobs.
