Alongside clear Optimus Primal, a loose G2 Groove has been listed on Ebay from the same seller who sold a near-complete G2 Stunticon set recently. Though Groove's intended existence in G2 has been documented before, the high-res photos with this auction may be the best look most people will ever get at this toy. The seller also notes he has a G2 Blades to be sold soon, but no other Protectobots, unfortunately. Keep reading to see all the images of the delightfully orange figure!
One particular Ebay seller has been liquidating a large number of unreleased product samples and test shots for several weeks. While most are well-documented items and not especially notable, this one really caught our eye. Transmetal Optimus is presented in full packaging, but in colorless clear plastic and of course no chrome. Whether this was a typical test shot piece or possibly had another intent behind it, it definitely stands out ...by being almost invisible! Keep reading to see the pictures!
Transformers Colombia next brings us more stock photography for the Autobots United five pack. The Big Bad Toy Store exclusive set features the main Autobot cast from the movie with more detailed paint applications, and another appearance of the faceplated head sculpt for Evasion Mode Optimus. Keep reading to see all the mirrored images.
Transformers Colombia gives us a few additional stock photos showing the Breakout Battle set, with "Rusty" Optimus Prime, Rollbar, and "Vehicon", a minor redeco of DOTM Crankcase. This depicts the farm escape scene ...ish, using offscreen characters based around non-Transformer vehicles that appeared in the film. Check out all the images below!
"The infamous Transformers Colombia strikes again!" Following the official announcement a short time ago of Big Bad Toy Store's Platinum Edition Age of Extinction exclusive multi packs, Transformers Colombia has dug up more official stock photography for some of the toys in question. First up we see more views of Optimus with Trailer and Sideswipe featuring an even more chromed First Edition Optimus, red movie Sideswipe, and G1 style trailer. Keep reading and check out all the images!
Autobase Aichi has posted images from a giveaway DVD in Terebi-Kun
magazine (More or less "TV Magazine Junior") that show the QTransformers with a selection of Lost Age/Age of Extinction characters, plus G1 Sideswipe and Prowl! The images also suggest animation is on the way, and features Japanese versions of the How To Ride Your Dinobot shorts. Similar in style to the old Choro-Q toys, QTransformers (or Cute Transformers if you prefer) are little SD mini-cars that turn in to various characters.

eHobby has once again updated the impenetrable text story that accompanies Transformers Cloud, along with a new illustration - at least most of us can get something out of that
. The image shows Shockwave and War/Fall For/Of Cybertron/Cybertron Soundwave charging Rodimus and Classics Optimus Prime, with Laserbeak in the foreground. Interestingly, the Decepticons seem to be coming through a Prime-style ground bridge... keep reading to see the picture for yourself and to check out the original page!
Following on from the initial portion posted about a month ago, Seqart Organization wraps up its lengthy interview with writer James Roberts, touching particularly on building characters and relationship dynamics within the cast of More Than Meets The Eye
. While not necessarily groundbreaking new information, it's a great insight to the process behind the fan-favorite series. Keep reading for an excerpt from the article and a link to the full interview!
Along with Not-Especially-Ultra Magnus, Iron Factory has released images of colored samples of their figures based on Sixgun and Slammer at the Legends scale, which will complete the assortment of partner toys for Fall of Cybertron Metroplex along with that toy's included Scamper. I only count four total guns on Sixgun, making it truly NOT-Sixgun, but its ability to separate in to two large guns or become a tank gives it a somewhat versatile play pattern. Keep reading to see the photos.
Iron Factory has thrown itself fully in to creating additional figures scaled to Generations Legends based on other classic characters. Newly revealed is one figure based on Ultra Magnus that transforms in to a full truck with trailer, though at this size it's more of an assault vehicle than car carrier. It's displayed in scale relative to several other figures, but should be around the same height as current Generations Legends for interactivity with Metroplex. Keep reading to see the images!
Finally (for now) Transformers Colombia presents us with found images of the later wave One Step Changers for Age of Extinction heavily populated by off-screen character toys. This assortment will feature Rollbar who takes heavy X-Brawn cues, Strafe, ROTF Megatron(?!), and a very G1 Prowl. Keep reading to see images of each figure in both modes and packaged!
Next on the list from Transformers Colombia, we have photos showing new figures Boulder and Chase in the Rescue Bots Rescan series. These smaller figures of fan-favorite Rescue Bots characters in new vehicle forms will be part of the third Rescan wave, and you can check out all of the mirrored stock photos of them below!
Transformers Colombia has unearthed a range of new Hasbro stock images today. First up they've brought us a batch of photos for Angry Birds Transformers including Telepod toys to load characters in to the mobile game app, and race course sets for non-mobile device play. A range of characters are advertised in this set of images, so keep reading to check out all of the photos!
Once again, unreleased G2 figures are making their way to eBay. The Combat Hero Optimus Prime and Megatron are recolors of the super-articulated (for the time but still
pretty darn good) 5" tall Hero Optimus Prime and Megatron figures with air-launching missiles. This blue color scheme was the inspiration for the G2 recolor of Laser Optimus Prime that appeared in the 2012 Ultimate Gift Set. Keep reading for photos, plus links to the auctions!

Cubex has reformed as Bad Cube, and has announced their first product: OTS-02 Brawny. Continuing the almost-but-not-quite naming scheme from Cubex's OTS-01 Huff, Brawny is being produced with help from a new factory and lessons learned from Huff's design and production. Keep reading for the first images of Brawny!
Hollywood Reporter does what it says in their name that Age of Extinction has passed $300 million in box office receipts in China- the first movie to ever do so. While it may be down to $4 million in its fifth week in US release (for a cumulative total of $236 Million, down roughly a third from Dark of the Moon), its worldwide gross is nearing $1 billion and it will almost certainly end up making as much or more than DOTM. Just, you know, not here.
