Singapore fan group Planet Iacon has posted images of Kids Logic's next SD Mecha Nations figure, MN05 G1 Starscream! He's adorable, and has light-up eyes, null rays, and boot jets. He also has a Megatron gun! Keep reading for mirrored photos!



Hot Toys posted images to their Facebook of an articulated non-transforming version of G1 Optimus Prime that, for some reason, is wearing Starscream's wings. The Special Edition bonus part, a tradition of Hot Toys releases... is Starscream's severed head. The wings are removable however, and Hot Toys makes some very attractive, elaborate figures- so if you've been wanting a really big modern remake of Action Master Optimus Prime, you're in luck. Keep reading for the full photo gallery and official announcement!



First contact between Cybertron and Earth (as represented by GI Joe) didn't go so well. Second contact is coming... and it couldn't be any worse, right? "I Saw Three Ships" is written by Tom Scioli and John Barber, with art, colors, and lettering by Scioli. Continue to full review



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.



Autobase Aichi has linked to a Facebook page crammed full of out-of-package images of Generations Leader Jetfire, showing off his impressive height, his combining weaponry, a makeshift Gerwalk/Guardian mode, and a reasonably tasteful and impressive use of chrome. Keep reading for a mirrored gallery of images!



Happy Friday! This week Retro Robot Radio and TFormers.com start the Ladybird Books stories with the first in the series, Autobots' Lightning Strike by science fiction author John Grant from 1985. In this story the Autobots attempt to harness the power of a lightning storm, but the Decepticons can't be far behind can they? Art in this book is done by Mike Collins (Marvel Comics artist) and Mark Farmer (Marvel and DC comic artist).



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!!

Come by and meet some of the biggest and brightest stars working in comics today!



IDW editors John Barber and Carlos Guzman, along with Michael Kelly, Hasbro's director for global publishing, offer a comprehensive overview of all things IDW & Hasbro. Transformers! My Little Pony!

BaCon just posted the October 2014 Solicitations from IDW, and the synopsis of More Than Meets The Eye #34 makes mention of an event called "Elegant Chaos" that begins in November. Will this be an MTMTE storyline, a loose thematic connection between all of IDW's books like Dawn of the Autobots, or something more interconnected like Dark Cybertron? As much as we enjoyed the latter, we're hoping for something Dawn-like, as yearly events are not anything IDW's superb output needs. Click through to read the solicitation for MTMTE #34 in case you missed it!



Just in are the Transformers Comic Books October 2014 Solicitations from IDW Publishing. Read on to see the comic summaries and covers for Transformers: Transformers VS G.I. JOE #4, Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #34, Transformers: Robots in Disguise #34, Transformers: Primacy #3 (of 4) and Transformers: Windblade.
