The end of the IDW Transformers universe as we know it proceeds in July, with the first two issues of the Unicron
miniseries takes us on a tour of Unicron's dinner buffet, while the double-dose of Optimus Prime
issues 21 and 22 carries on the story, Meanwhile, Lost Light
#21 and #22 move toward wrapping up the story More Than Meets The Eye
embarked on so long ago, and wrapping it up with something completely different, we've got the second issue of the Bumblebee Movie's prequel comic tie in with 60's spy action. And be warned before proceeding, there are spoilers present in the solicitations for this month's books! That, and cover previews can be found below.
Two issues in one week! The Falling
continues with "Chapter 3: The Ground" and "Interlude: The First Who Was Named," both written by John Barber and lettered by Tom B. Long. "The Ground" has art by Kei Zama with colors by Josh Burcham and "Interlude" has art by Sara-Pitre Durocher and Livio Ramondelli, with colors on Pitre-Durocher's pages by Burcham. This review does not contain the major spoiler for Optimus Prime #17 that can be seen in the Issue #18 preview!

Facebook group TFND
has posted official photos of Power of the Primes
Leader class Nemesis Prime! Probably destined to be an exclusive, Nemesis Prime comes with a sword which transforms into a bird companion named Giza - the name of Transformers Prime Nemesis Prime's Arms Micron!
We also get our first look at the "Orion Pax" inner robot, whose name and/or true identity are not currently known... but that's sure not Pax's head. Keep reading!
Following the report of implausibly cheap trypticons at Ollie's Bargain Outlet
in Florida over the weekend, we have some possible clarification on the issue. An individual identified as aurora51
reports finding Trypticon at a Nashville area Ollie's, however in this case they were priced at approximately $50 each. Whether it's a case of pricing varying by stores, or more likely a one-off employee error resulting in the now legendary $13 Trypticon, the reality is that while a good deal is still to be had, it not as good as we thought yesterday.

#0, the Free Comic Book Day issue intended to kick off the universe-concluding event for IDW's Transformers/shared Hasbro universe. The excerpt concerns the origins of the Spaceknights and their armor, and how it all serves to closer tie together the already closely-aligned IDW comics. Keep reading only if you want part of Unicron #0 spoiled for you!
has shared a photo to the Transformers subreddit of a very exciting find: Titans Return
Titan Class Trypticon has been sighted at a Florida Ollie's Bargain Outlet for $12.99!
That is an absolutely insane
price for a figure whose SRP is more than ten times that amount. Keep reading for photographic proof, and safe trip to your local Ollie's!
It's that same guy with the purple marker again - but this time he used black and only a little of it, presumably to obscure which Prime Master will be included with Wreck-Gar. It's a nice piece of packaging art, and does a pretty good job of selling the Combiner Wars/Unite Warriors
Deluxe Groove mold as the Junkion leader. Keep reading to see!
Ready for more obnoxious purple marker leaks? Too bad, because the usual Weibo leaker is inflicting it on us again with needlessly marked-over images of Nemesis Prime, a figure we've already seen through official (if unusual) channels.
But we get his bio, an image of the Dark Matrix of Leadership, and a look at "Decepticon Giza," who seems to be formed from Nemesis Prime's weapons. Keep reading if you like purple.

have been sighted in New Zealand stores! This is well ahead of the anticipated Summer release, so hopefully it'll spread across the globe soon enough. Keep reading for in-package photos!
If his combiner-torso proportional necessities and questionable stickers have foiled your urge to purchase Power of the Primes
Voyager class Starscream: good (or possibly bad) news! Amazon currently has it for $16.16 as of this writing, and eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. Keep reading for a link!
Kabam has announced that Blaster will be joining Transformers: Forged To Fight,
the smartphone-based Transformers fighting game, at 10AM PDT (or 1PM EDT)! With a nice-looking model based on his Titans Return
Leader class figure, Blaster's powers are detailed on the F2F homepage. But we've mirrored the description for you below, so keep reading to see!
Amazon has posted product pages with official images for the Power of the Primes
wave 3 Prime Masters! Quintus Prime with Bludgeon, Bomb-Burst with Megatronus, and Solus Prime with Octopunch continue the Mini-Pretender format of the previous two waves, with each turning into a weapon. The focus is on melee weapons this wave, with Octopunch becoming a trident weapon, Bomb-Burst becoming a claw, and Bludgeon... well, guess.
Keep reading to see the images!
announced on Twitter today that the fourth figure in the Kuro Kara Kuri
series - after Drift, Tarn, and Star Saber - would be none other than Optimus Prime himself. Prototype images were displayed of a design very much in keeping with Flame's output so far: a highly detailed, stylized take on the character.
Amazon Japan has updated product pages for the latest announced TakaraTomy Power of The Primes releases coming up in September. Consistent with the retailer ordering info we posted recently
, we're looking at Prime Master Solus Prime (more notable for the Octopunch Pretender shell it lives inside of), Battle Slash and Road Trap, and Titan Class Predaking, giving us more clear photography of the Predacon toys and their exclusive Onyx Prime Master. You can find all of the new photos below!
