Via their instagram account, The Loyal Subjects has announced upcoming figures exclusive to Gamestop. There will be six figures total, and so far three have been shown, including Red Alert, Slag, and a special deco of Optimus Prime. These figures are due to hit for Black Friday according to a response from The Loyal Subjects in the comments of one photo. Keep reading to see all the pictures, and be ready to brave Black Friday Gamestop if you want to add these to your collection!




Yesterday we brought you the news that the soundtrack to the 1986 Transformers: The Movie would see a rerelease on vinyl. While at the time we weren't sure about availability outside Europe, we have good news tonight! Amazon has listed a preorder for this record, which they'll be fulfilling directly themselves. The bad news is that this release is listed at $50.99. For some this may still be very attractive, but others looking for a novelty piece, it might still be a bit out of range!




Music on Vinyl lists an upcoming release of the soundtrack for the animated Transformers: The Movie. Perhaps the ultimate nostalgia hit, for those with a passion for records and a love of the 86 movie's songs this will be a must have. The site notes that a first pressing of 1000 records will be on transparent blue vinyl, for that little bit of extra special. If you remember what a record player is and have one that still works, look for this to be released on December 15th. Music on Vinyl is based in the Netherlands, so check with your favorite music store to find out if they will or can get this for you.




Dedicated Transformers fans often make interesting and excellent art pieces, but this one sits near the top. Posted by Eduardo Salazar Saez in the Transformers Chile Facebook group, this fan built Ark is part model, part diorama, and part playset, all scaled for Generations figures to use. While there's no specific information about this model's construction offered, it's obviously made with a massive degree of detail in mind and some serious skill - not to mention what must be a big garage to build it in! Click through to see the full size photos and a video tour!




Via their Twitter, The Loyal Subjects have teased the existence of a vinyl based on G1 Jetfire. While little specific detail is given along with it, a fan's drawing noting itself as a wave 4 prediction was included, which TLS's Twitter representative acknowledged as being on to something. If this is our first look at a piece from wave 4, Jetfire would be in a very early state of production, leaving the odd hole in the side as either a by-product of that, or perhaps a feature yet to be revealed. Check out the original tweet and full image below!




Acid Free Gallery is featuring a series of ten character portrait pieces of prominent Generation One Autobots and Decepticons by artist Thong Le (also known as WEAPONIX), which will be for sale at this year's NYCC, taking place in a short two weeks. Priced at $50 per faction set of five, or $15 per individual print while supplies last, variant metallic sets will also be offered for $75 each. For preview images and full details, keep reading!




Youtube user Peaugh has posted a video covering Sentinel's Optimus Prime pen, which primarily boasts its status as a small, highly poseable figure of G1 Optimus Prime. In the video we get a rundown of the figure's articulation, followed by the incredibly fiddly process of changing it to one of the most uncomfortable looking pens I have ever seen. If you're curious about this expensive writing tool, click through and check out the embedded video.




If, amid all the front side shots of MP-24 Star Saber you've wondered what might be happening on the far side, let it trouble you no more! Hisashi Yuki has set out yet again to make the time between now and March 2015 seem to drag out even farther with the latest teaser pic, now showing off the super robot mode's backside. Well, it's all in the name of science! Check out the full size rear view of Star Saber below!




Better known as the source of numerous newly discovered testshots, one-offs and mockups for vintage Hasbro Transformers products, the most notable of which never saw retail release. z75sales who has been liquidating this collection has posted two new unboxing videos from the inventory process of this collection. One simply contains sealed G1 items, while the other video said to be the first recorded shows the unpacking of some of the more interesting pieces, at least a portion of which have since been sold. Keep reading to check them both out!




Butting in on his movie counterpart's corpse-wearin' ways, Hot Toys Optimus Prime Starscream Version is a slick, nontransforming figure of G1 Prime by the company responsible for all the pretty Iron Man figures most of us will never own. Sideshow Collectibles, official distributor of Hot Toys in the US, has posted images of the figure, which is due in July 2015 with an SRP of $345. Keep reading for the photos and start saving up now!




UK company Paladone has posted their online catalog of Transformers related products, and some of them are pretty neat. From a squishy stress-relief Bumblebee to an Optimus Prime egg cup to foamboard 3D puzzles of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee that look as though they might transform, the items are more creative than many licenced goods. Keep reading for some sample images and a link!




The ToysRUs website has Masterpiece Sunstorm and Prowl back in stock, complete with pick up in stores options to tell you which TRU near you has the figures now. Keep reading for the links!




The Transformers Asia website has been updated with a page for an Asia-exclusive reissue of the Hasbro edition of Masterpiece Optimus Prime. The release date is October 15th and a "Special Premium" is promised, but no other information about its nature is available at the moment. Dare we hope that, like so many other Asian exclusives, this will be shared with US ToysRUs stores? Either way, it's a source of more MP-10s for those who missed him. Keep reading for the link!




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!




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!
