The Pez Candy USA Facebook page has posted images of the upcoming Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Megatron Pez Dispensers! Bumblebee is pretty clearly based off of the Classics headsculpt, but it's a bit more difficult to nail down the sources used for Prime and Megatron. But the good news is that in July 2015, your dreams of eating candy out of a robot's neck will come true. Keep reading to see the photo!

Our forums member chuckdawg1999 has brought us his video review of the much debated, very confusing Platinum Series set of Blitzwing and Astrotrain. In what's likely the first English review of the set, he speculates on the origins of the decos while giving the reissue molds a good run through. But, their value may not quite match their suggested price tag. Keep reading to see the video and chuckdawg's comments!
From the Twitter of tf-tf, we have a few new shots of the Platinum Series set featuring reissues of G1 Blaster and Perceptor. Intel Ops collects the two figures and three of Blaster's cassettes. It also adds a set of "slides" for Perceptor which we can now see have small images applied to view through microscope-mode Perceptor. The text of the tweet also suggests the mysterious extra accessory is a holder for the slides when not in use. Click through to have a look at all that, and a shot of the bio from the back of the box!

We've got slightly better looks at the package for another of the upcoming G1 reissue sets falling under the Platinum Series banner. Intel Ops featuring Blaster and three cassettes with Perceptor who's gotten some new microscope-related parts is likely to be the biggest of these sets to come along until the strongly rumored Trypticon would turn up. Unfortunately these photos don't really shed any more insights, especially towards Perceptor's new mystery accessory, but hopefully those details will be made clearer soon!

Transform and Roll Out the Sales! That's what is said to have surprised investors on Hasbro's earnings report of a 10% lift in quarterly boys product sales. This is despite the fact that many retailers profits have been slowed by the strong US Dollar. Hasbro cited their stable brand Transformers and other entertainment tie-ins such as Marvel as their leaders in sales last quarter, according to Forbes magazine.
It's been... what, maybe a couple weeks now? Which means it's time for another Japanese toy show. Today, courtesy of TAG Hobby, we've got new shots of Kotobukiya's upcoming D-Style model kits of Starscream, Skywarp, & Thundercracker, and they look pretty good!

Multiple outlets have reported that Herb Trimpe, the first artist to draw Wolverine and GI Joe, has passed away suddenly at the age of 75. As an artist for Marvel Comics, Trimpe drew a handful of issues of the G1 Transformers comic, as well as GI Joe vs The Transformers

At East Coast Comic Con this past weekend, Marvel Comics inker Dave Hunt had a selection of his work on display, and included among these pages are parts of an unpublished adaptation of the season three cartoon episode Dweller In The Depths.

Only a few pages survive to today, but Roboplastic Apocalypse was able to take photos, which were posted to their Facebook page. Click through, and have a look!
Optimus Prime! Transforms from tractor trailer to robot with headquarters and back. That’s the whole point of Transformers, figures that can be converted between modes. While the process of going between configurations is an important one, we can often attach more importance to factors such as appearance, scale, accessories, aesthetics, posability and the like. But this week, I will be listing my personal top 5 transformation sequences across all the official Hasbro and Takara Tomy Transformers toys that I have had the pleasure of experiencing.
