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!

We'll keep you posted, but for now you can click through and see the revised listings for yourself.
Transformers Asia has posted a new silhouetted teaser image showing what appears to be Optimus Prime with some nasty shoulder cannons. They promise more details at the Hasbro booth at Hong Kong convention ACGHK, which runs through this weekend. Meanwhile, another image has appeared of a second Hot Toys Optimus Prime, this one wearing Megatron's corpse. The silhouette is close enough that this could be the one, but click through and judge for yourself!
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.
