Brave Robotics, a company formed by roboticist Kenji Ishida, has partnered with Tomy and Asratec Corp. to create Project J-deite (Pronounced "Jadeite" like the stone and/or the Sailor Moon villain). The goal is to create a real, transforming car robot by the year 2020 - and in service of that goal they have released a video of their first prototype, the 1/4 scale robot named, appropriately enough, Quarter. While Ishida's inspiration was said to be the Transformers-inspired Brave Series, there's little denying Quarter looks a lot like Prowl and the other Datsun-mold Transformers. Keep reading for photos and video of Quarter!



Japanese retailer Amiami has posted a pretty substantial collection of images for the upcoming D-Style Convoy model kit. The Optimus Prime with Super Deformed stylings includes Prime's rifle, Axe, and of course the Matrix of Leadership. Which is to say nothing of the adorably tiny Truck Mode Optimus Prime you get as a bonus. And there's even a preview image of the upcoming D-Style Megatron! Keep reading to see 22 new photos!



ACToys user dlarirang has posted images of MP-21 Bumblebee! Shorter than Deluxe Generations Crosscut, yet doubtless more complex, the long-awaited Masterpiece figure looks pretty good in his licensed VW Bug mode. Keep reading to see the photos!



Via their Twitter, The Loyal Subjects have teased the existence of a vinyl based on G1 Jetfire. While little specific detail is given along with it, a fan's drawing noting itself as a wave 4 prediction was included, which TLS's Twitter representative acknowledged as being on to something. If this is our first look at a piece from wave 4, Jetfire would be in a very early state of production, leaving the odd hole in the side as either a by-product of that, or perhaps a feature yet to be revealed. Check out the original tweet and full image below!



Planet Iacon has posted an image of MP-05G Megatron still in his plastic tray, but it's the best and clearest image of the Asia-exclusive version of Megatron we've yet seen. All of the original accessories are still here, including the Optimus Prime Murder Weapon Accessory Set of a Beam Dagger and Pistol -and also Kremzeek! Keep reading to see the image!



Singapore fan group Planet Iacon posted a link to a Vine showing the transformation of Mega Drive Megatron, the figure that combines the Decepticon leader quite appropriately with the Sega Genesis' Blast Processing. It's a simple affair, just as you'd likely expect from a rectangle. But a really nice looking rectangle! Keep reading to see for yourself!



Just in are the IDW Publishing January 2015 Transformers Comic Books Solicitations and Covers. Get the previews on the coming publications hitting stands in November including: Transformers vs G.I. JOE #6, Transformers: Punishment, Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #37, Transformers: Drift—Empire of Stone #3, Transformers Animated: The Complete Allspark Almanac, Transformers: Dark Cybertron, and Angry Birds/Transformers #3. Read on to see all the summaries and covers.



Rumors had been afoot of a special reissue of MP Megatron for the non-Japanese Asian markets, and thanks to Autobase Aichi we now have a photo and a release date of December! MP-05G Megatron is based on that obscure comic... that G1 episode when... that limited-release early version of... okay, it's just gold. I guess only good guys get black recolors. Keep reading to see the photo!



The Year of the Goat is nearly here, and courtesy of Robotkingdom we know that Hasbro as always is readying a pair of commemorative Platinum Edition figures for Asian markets and US ToysRus stores. This year it's Masterpiece Soundwave and the Laser Optimus Prime mold from late G2. Huh? Both figures are rendered in what appears to be the official YotG color scheme, which is clear plastic and copper. ...Huh. But MP Soundwave even comes with a similarly-decoed set of cassettes! Keep reading to see the photos.



New pictures of Ultimetal Optimus Prime have surfaced on Twitter, and they give a much better sense of just how much robot $800 gets you. Coming up to Metroplex's torso-boxes and standing head and shoulders above even the original, larger MP-1 Optimus Prime, you have to figure that the price of the figure isn't too bad if you figure it by the pound... Keep reading to see the photos!



RobotKingdom's Facebook page has posted a link to Kuma Style's video review of TFC Phobus! Phobus is Not-Divebomb, the fifth part of the Ares combiner (who looks an awful lot like Predaking). Not only does he have a massive set of wings expandable to a Predaking-appropriate wingspan, but even comes with Power Core Combiner-compatible connectors so he can quit the Predacons in a huff and go form his own combiner team with blackjack and drones. Keep reading to see the review!

Games


Nexon have updated their site with a news and images of their KartRider Transformers racer style game that looks to be a take-off on the Mario_kart game. The Korean language site shows images of SD G1 animation style Optimus Prime and Galvatron characters along with details on the game including screens from the different levels and more. With no English language details on the site, it cannot be determined if there are plans an English version at this time. Read on to see the game teaser video and images for more details.


Following on our previous report. Game news site 2P have posted a confirms the new mobile game titled "Transformers Rising." The same people who brought us by DeNA who did the Transformers Legends mobile game. According to 2P, the game will feature traditional PVE and PVP modes, as well as new 'Scramble for Skill' and 'World Boss' modes. The game shows G1 characters with Chinese symbols for game play. Read on to see screens from the game and more details.


There's been a number of Transformers Playing Cards packs released over the years. Fans who missed out can get what looks to be the snazziest looking Generation 1 themed set yet from Aquarius Posters. The full color cards are beautifully adorned with actual G1 box art from the classic toys. Only Ratchet and Megatron are shown, but we can assume there's more than meets the hand judging from the many robots shown on the box cover.

Singapore's Planet Iacon has posted a gallery of in-hand images of the super-big, super-elaborate, super-expensive Ultimetal Optimus Prime! The figure comes with a near-complete set of magnetic snap-on armor, a fancy base with stand, a Matrix of Leadership that also fits on the stand, and eyes that light up and a faceplate that moves when it talks. And it's huge. As is the price- about $760 USD. Keep reading to see the photos, which is as close as most of us are ever going to get to owning one of these!
