We here at TFormers would like to take a quick time out today to send our well wishes on to celebrated voice actor Peter Cullen, who turns (an impressively young-looking) 74 years old today. While of course in our fandom he is and always will be best known for the voice of Optimus Prime, he'd had a great career outside of the various iterations of that role, including Dungeons & Dragons, GI Joe, and of course the voice of Eeyore in numerous Winnie The Pooh animations. Happy birthday, and thank you for all you've given us!



The Hobby Ark Toy Store has posted to Facebook images of a collector's coin for MP-18B Bluestreak! The presence of a coin like this means that Hasbro Asia will be distributing the TakaraTomy release in southeast Asian territories outside of Japan. Click through for a better look!



Velocitron's quarterly Benefit 500 is on! Blurr's racing for the future of the Cybertronian Alliance - but in this race, there are no rules. "Race Against The Light is written by Mairghread Scott with art by Corin Howell and colors by Thomas Deer. Continue to the review!



Thanks once again to Allspark for providing high quality scans of this month's Figure King magazine. In it we get a good look at TakaraTomy's Constructicons, including a look at the hand weapons and a better idea of the individual deco choices, plus some Transformers Adventure including Override and Runabout, some QTF, and a full page look at ThreeA's movie Optimus Prime figure. We've mirrored Transformers relevant pages and highlighted some of the individual images, so keep reading to check it out.



The Transformers Fourth Party Club's Weibo page has posted images of Machine Boy's version of Astrotrain, whose name has yet to be properly euphemized in English. It's a pretty good looking toy in all three modes with some interesting features: the shuttle mode has a communications satellite; the robot mode's chest fin seems to be able to store in a groove in the torso to better match the animation model; and the train now has a coal car in case a robot space shuttle train with no fuel was too much disbelief to suspend at once. Click through to see him!



52Toys caught sight of another SD-style Transformers product from Fewture. Their ES Gokin series will be bringing out a Fortress Maximus figure in the near future, but that's not the only thing to note here. On a display card behind Max is a silhouette that bears a distinct resemblance to Victory leader Star Saber, giving a good pointer of what might be next up after Fortress Maximus has come himself. Keep reading to check out the photos!



Hisashi Yuki has put more images of upcoming products on Twitter for us! Today we've got Transformers Adventure Override and his moldmate, Combiner Wars Legends-class Groove as they visit with the upcoming Unite Warriors Groove, the much-anticipated new leg for UW03 Guardian, AKA Defensor! Click through to see all three photos!



TakaraTomy Devastator designer Shogo Hasui has posted an image to Twitter of the super-detailed wireframe model for Devastator as he'll be seen in the Oculus Rift 3D simulation at this weekend's Wonder Festival in Japan! The model is based directly on the CAD designs for Combiner Wars/Unite Warriors Devastator, as is pretty obvious from looking at it. Keep reading for a closer look and more details!



Autobase Aichi has posted links to a bunch of new TakaraTomy figures including Transformers Adventure Runabout and Override, recolors of Combiner Wars Legends Blackjack and Groove! Also present are QTransformers Cliffjumper, Shockwave, and Soundwave, as well as Micron Launcher Fracture and EZ Collection Big (Three-Step) Steeljaw. Read on to see!



The Transformers Live Action Move Blog has posted a rumor sourced from noted Hollywood insider site Christian Today... which got it from Design & Trend... which got it from some podcast who got it from some random Facebook page ...that Ultra Magnus and the Quintessons will appear in Transformers 5. We're skeptical, for reasons we'll go into in the article - but this is notable because it means the TF5 hype train is underway. Keep reading for more details on this game of Internet Telephone!



From Weibo by way of Autobase Aichi, we have our first look at the Platinum Edition Dinobots boxset! ...which, as it turns out, is not an assortment of G1 Dinobot reissues. Instead, it's a reissue of the SDCC 2014 Dinobots, those being Age of Extinction Voyager Grimlock plus Deluxe Snarl, Strafe, and Slug, all in G1 colors. One nice thing though: you may not get the pop-up Teletraan-1 backdrop, but you do get Voyager-class Slog, who was previously a separate Amazon exclusive! Keep reading to see the packaged figures.
