Today we're proud to be rolling out a new feature on TFormers! We call it the Wave Tracker, and it's designed to give you an at-a-glance indication of what the most current info about a given toy is. Are there pre-orders up yet for Power of the Primes
Wave 2? What's the next Masterpiece figure being released? Any reviews or photo galleries of the newest TakaraTomy Legends figures out there? If we know, the Wave Tracker will tell you. Keep reading to learn more!
Not only is Xovergen releasing a kit to make your Transformers Classics/Henkei Optimus Prime compatible with their Powermaster TrailerForce TF-01 upgrade set, but they are planning on releasing a completely retooled Classics/Henkei prime figure that will work with both their new Powermaster figure and the Generation 1 Powermaster figures as well! Despite the figure being heavily retooled I do not think it will affect the look of the robot mode as the kibble should just rotate to the back as it does on the original Classics/Henkei mold.
Final results tallied! Check out the results in the full article!

Well, this is certainly a Christmas gift by Fun Publications! The company behind the annual BotCon convention has released their brochure to reveal the six-figure BotCon 2012 convention exclusive set! The set is a mish mash of the traditional Classics Universe and the Shattered Glass dimension that was birthed in the 2008 exclusive set, and the war criminal Ultra Magnus and his merry band of Evil Autobots will shatter (heh) the barrier between regular and inverse to fight the heroic Autobots and evil Decepticons!

So we are not exactly sure why this Transformers Classics Deluxe Bumblebee
has been repainted blue, and neither does tfctoy, according to this most recent auction. According to the auction description, tfctoy calls it an "unknown version Bumblebee," and it might be a Japanese "Lucky Draw,testshoot, prototype, etc." The last time a Bumblebee was repainted blue, it was a BotCon 2002 exclusive named Glyph

So it's only fitting that we thank Liege Evilmus for bringing us this awesome custom currently on sale on eBay. "Ranjawz64ls" is selling a heavily customized Generation 1 Ultra Magnus trailer that may now be fitted onto a Voyager Classics Ultra Magnus
