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!

Seen previously as a grey prototype at a hobby show in Hong Kong, tonight we have a quick pair of full color images for Ultra Magnus from the Ultimetal line. You might remember the Ultimetal Optimus Prime, a large scale figure with removable armor parts to show detailed internal structures, and which by itself cost in the neighborhood of $1000. Ultra Magnus of course adds full Magnus armor on top of a recolor of that Optimus body, making a very impressive piece, but one whose potential price tag is staggering to even think about!

The battle against the DECEPTICON JUSTICE DIVISION is finally over, and for the few AUTOBOTS left standing, all that’s left are words. Four words, to be precise.

By now, Ript Appearel have mashed up so many cool popular ideas, we thought they would never do anything new and cool with the Transformers again, until the Reservoir Bots. This is one is more than meets with surprise from artist Samiel, who's taken all our favorite Decepticons and turned them into a Reservoir Dogs homage that just full of badness. Read on to see the images and where to order the goods.

Just in from the Brazil Toy Fair that just happened to be going on the same weekend as BotCon. We have a surprise with the Transformers Platinum Edition Rise of Rodimus Prime boxed set. This is an interesting one with Hasbro including the Titanium Rodimus Prime figure mold and his Matrix of Leadership, along with the Universe 2.0 Galvatron figure mold. It will be interesting to see if Hasbro re-issues Rodimus Prime with die-cast parts or plastic. Read on for the gallery and translated report from Transformers Dioramas.
