On Twitter, TakaraTomy has shared a video presentation that gives a history (in brief) of the Transformers Masterpiece line. While the majority of the video spends time focused on the history of the series, toward the end it stops for a bit on the upcoming new version of Megatron, and gives a good look at its Key to Vector Sigma accessory and energy mace, with cartoon clips to give them their context. We've taken some screencaps from that segment, and you can find those and an embed of the Twitter video in the full post below!
Perfect Effect has posted new images of the one thing many of us have been wanting to make their Leader-class Super Ginrai/Powermaster Optimus Prime figure complete: Ginrai! The Deluxe-ish sized figure is looking pretty poseable, and the new grayscale images also show off the new chest frame that need to be installed for the figure. And since you have to do that, it should
be possible to use this on either variation of the mold! Keep reading to see.

About a year ago, Toys Alliance revealed MAS-01, a licensed, large-scale figure of G1 Optimus Prime. Recently they've posted a teaser on Facebook showing off what will be the second entry in their Mega Action Series. Probably coming as no surprise, Optimus is followed by Megatron. The image now is semi-obscured, and only shows the upper half of the figure's body clearly, but it's easy enough to see that the design basically follows what MAS-01 was doing, using the G1 design with some reimagining. No further details are revealed, but we expect to see more soon. Click through for the full image!

It's one of those "death and taxes" things: When an Optimus Prime exists, it's an inevitable outcome that it will, sooner or later, get an evil deco. Or become Ultra Magnus - and sometimes both! But in this case, Prime 1 Studio has fulfilled one of these obligate conclusions with the reveal of a promotional photo set of a Nemesis Prime edition of their stylized G1 Optimus. This has a Decepticon emblem adorned base, but otherwise features the same extras as Optimus in blaster and axe options to go along with the black paint job. We have the images mirrored below, click through to see!

Hasbro's Portuguese website has revealed "Playskool Friends" style figures of the Transformers - small, single piecem friendly, safe figurines for very young children. The website listing describes these as a Collectible Edition, and does not seem to use the Playskool Friends branding in association with them perhaps indicating a different intent for release. Pictures of Optimus and Bumblebee are shown, and the listing also references Arcee, as well as Chase, Boulder, Blades, and Heatwave - the cast of Rescue Bots
as part of the overall assortment. We've mirrored the images, keep reading to see!
Hasbro's website has uploaded a new listing page for the upcoming Platinum Edition Year of The Rooster Optimus Prime. The figure, a reuse of the Hybrid Style Convoy figure from about ten years ago, is only about 4 inches tall, but comes with a whack of accessories to fill out package space. Importantly, the new listing reveals the US market MSRP as being $99.99, which while still probably a bit high for what it is, does come in under some estimates based on pricing in other locations. You can find the description copies below, as well as stock photos for the set. Keep reading!
