No one can deny, Hasbro have been putting pedal to the metal rolling out a TON of new Transformers Age of Extinction products this year. According to the latest report from MarketWatch, Hasbro's Transformers sales increased 32% to bring a hefty $335.8 million in sales for the last quarter. This was backed up by strong sales for My Little Pony as well, but didn't help Hasbro meet Wall street expectations due to weak sales from games and pre-school products that are losing out to the mobile apps market. Read on for more details on Hasbro's latest earnings.
In a rather subtle piece of satire appearing on National Report
- a political "news" site that seemingly dances right on the razor's edge of Poe's Law
- "Micheal" Bay (whose name is not spelled correctly once
) spoils Transformers 5 for us by announcing that he'll be killing off Optimus Prime and replacing him with Rodimus. Keep reading for an excerpt and a link, which may include Age of Extinction Spoilers!
Singapore Fangroup Planet Iacon has posted an image of a prototype Optimus Prime figure (or possibly statue) in grayscale with the Thrilling 30 logo superimposed on it. It looks to be a stylized, nontransforming figure, but at this point it's difficult to say. Plus the gas tanks are on the front of his thighs instead of the sides of his legs - what's up with that? Click through to see the photo, and rest assured we will tell you more as soon as we know exactly what this thing is.
The same Ebay seller with the G2 Stunticons now has a group of the six Go-Bots that went unreleased at the end of Generation 2. Four of these eventually were sold in Robots in Disguise (2001), but the last two molds were lost long before. All six are seen with rare full paint applications, and with two molds having never been released at retail, this could be worth considerable money to the right collector, if he or she did not already spend it all on Stunticons last week!

MINDBOMB! The humans have access to a CYBERTRONIAN mind--but whose is it--and why do they want it? OPTIMUS PRIME and GALVATRON race for answers, as JAZZ faces the consequences of his last trip to Earth.
Found via Full Metal Hero, Fansproject has released promotional photos of Lost Exo Realm LER-01 Columpio, their take on Sludge. Columpio comes with a Mini-Con, Derpan (yes, really) who can ride Dino Sludge and become an axe for Robot Sludge. Keep reading to see the image!
PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER ONE! WINDBLADE seeks out the last refuge she has left, the living city METROPLEX as his malfunctions intensify! WINDBLADE realizes that even if she survives STARSCREAM, METROPLEX himself may doom them all!
SPACE WAR I! Earth makes contact with an alien race--and G.I. JOE is on the front lines of first contact! But when the TRANSFORMERS arrive--their version of "peace" does not match our own...
Remember that set of G2 Stunticons ExVee posted about last week?
Well, the auction ended last night... and it ended much higher than anyone expected, at $26,815. Congratulations to the new owner, whoever it may be - do yourself a favor and get that sucker INSURED. More statistics after the jump!
18 or 19 Autobots and an unaffiliated Cybertronian locked in a small space ship. Sounds like a disaster waiting to happen, and that's even before random disappearances begin, causing panic and bringing everyone to the breaking point in "Twenty Plus One", More Than Meets The Eye 31. Written by James Roberts, with art by Atilio Rojo, and colors by Joana Lafuente. Read the full review!
FLYING BLIND! Trapped inside a giant replica of RODIMUS's head (don't ask), MEGATRON and the crew of the Lost Light have to solve the biggest mystery of their lives. And they have to do so quickly--because every time the lights go out, something terrible happens...
Reports are hitting that the next in the Transformers Hero Mashers line are turning up!

If you spot these locally, be sure to drop by our sightings forum and spread the word to your fellow local fans!

Breakdown may be practically the Botcon mascot, but the rest of his G2-colored teammates only existed in the form of a few product samples - rarest of all being Motormaster. Today a full set of the five Stunticons has been listed on Ebay, offering a unique chance to see the whole group together. But ownership may only be for those deep of pocket - the set went from 99 cents to over $4,000 in less than twenty hours. With nine days to go, the sky may well be the limit. But if you just want to see the pictures, keep reading!
