A long list of rumors for Titans Return has, over the months, almost completely proven out. The last major remaining piece that was missing was the existence of a pair of boxsets which would include recolors and/or retools of various toys. We may be a step closer to proof of their existence. A secondhand report claims to have computer information from a Canadian Toys R Us that has the price and SKU for at least one such boxset. We'll go over it in more detail below, so keep reading...

It's been found that IMDB has been updated with lengthy cast credits for The Last Knight
. While the list still omits a few characters we know will be appearing in the movie (mainly voice over roles that haven't necessarily been cast yet), it does offer some interesting potential insights. We caution going in that this will both contain possible spoilers
, but also may not be entirely accurate, as IMDB is not particularly restricted in who can contribute information to it. One point in particular seems like it might be right, though. Keep reading for more.
The second wave of Combiner Force branded Robots in Disguise Warrior figures saw a limited release in the Philippines a few weeks ago, but grabbed comparatively little attention at the time. It looks like North American distribution is coming soon, as a new listing on Entertainment Earth shows the next Combiner Force assortment getting ready to arrive as early as March. And it also presents us with the case loadout we can expect to see. Keep reading to find out more!
This evening, a new message appeared on Michael Bay's website. Something like a look back at the creation of the latest entry in the movie series, Bay reflects on the writer's room and its talent, and how their work stands to change the scope of the movies. He also acknowledges all those times he said he wasn't coming back for a next movie - and always did. But once again, this could be the end, really for real this time. It looks like we're going to get a big debut tomorrow, and this is another piece of pulling attention in on The Last Knight
to get ready. Read the full message below!
The 51st Super Bowl airs in just over one week, and entertainment news website Deadline is reporting on this year's commercial spot pricing, as well as a short list of companies known to have purchased the highly prized advertising time. Among them is Paramount, who has used Super Bowl time in past years to promote an upcoming Transformers movie. Deadline speculates this year's Baywatch movie might take over the premium ad time, but if so that would represent the first movie year since Revenge of The Fallen that Transformers didn't claim a Super Bowl spot. Time will tell! Keep reading for a link to the original article.

About a month ago we were the first to bring you word via Dengeki Hobby that Masterpiece Cheetor's release date had been pushed back
from its planned January date in to February. In the time since, retail websites have begun to reflect this change, and through TakaraTomy Mall, we now have the new Japanese release date to share. Stores in Japan will start selling MP-34 Cheetor in Saturday, February 25th. Whether the mainland Asia release will occur on the same day or possibly be a little earlier as has happened in the past when Japanese release dates have been delayed is currently unknown.
As reported back in early December, the Power of The Primes voting is getting ready to launch. A placeholder page has already been activated on hasbro.com giving a quick background on the significance of the Matrix of Leadership, along with an outline of the voting process that will take place. The first stage is selecting the contenders, a group of nine who were revealed in the early announcement - Ultra Magnus, Hound, Arcee, Shockwave, Megatron, Star Saber, Thunderwing, the "Unknown Evil" Deathsaurus, and Optimus Primal - with the winners moving on to a final selection poll.
