Autobase Aichi has posted the official TakaraTomy photos of Unite Warriors Guardian! Takara has gone all-out and created a deluxe Groove for the set, which is planned to be a TakaraTomy Mall exclusive. Here's hoping Hasbro brings it out here, because otherwise it's going to be expensive. Keep reading to see!

The site Women Write About Comics has posted an interview with ore Than Meets The Eye artist Alex Milne! In the interview, Milne talks about his history with Transformers, his style, and his working relationships with the other artists on MTMTE (and of course writer James Roberts). He also expresses his desire to see more female characters in the IDW Transformers universe, and talk about some of the design work he's done recently now that it's happening. Keep reading for an excerpt and link!



To complement the just-announced Andras Swarm Leader figure, site sponsor TFSource has also posted images of the upcoming Eligos, X-Transbots' Non-Cyclonus figure! It's a pretty solid looking take on the G1 character model. No preorder available yet, but with Andras up, it probably won't be very long. Keep reading to see the images!



Maketoys gave an update today as to the current situation with Dystopia, their not-Metrotitan recolor of their not-Metroplex figure, Utopia.

The Japanese language Tagoal blog has posted a massive photo review of the D-Collection candy toys! These are very small SD-style figures - about half the height or less of Generations Legends-class figures. The assortment includes Optimus Prime, Megatron, and Starscream, and special clear-plastic variants of each. Keep reading to see!



Unique Toys has posted images to Weibo of a testshot of their latest figure, Y-02 Runman! Based on Blurr and including his Targetmaster partner Haywire, Runman is also presumably the arch-nemesis of Donkey Kong-era Mario, back when his name was Jumpman. Or maybe his sidekick. Keep reading to see the figure!



The Loyal Subjects have updated their Facebook page with news and an images of their SDCC 2015 exclusive Transparent Black Mirage Loyal Subject Action Vinyls figure. Get a look at the pre-production sample that will be offered in July.



This is the one we've been wondering about: with Unite Warriors striving for Maximum G1 Accuracy, what happens with Defensor? Well, going by this silhouette teaser posted by Hisashi Yuki this morning, what happens seems to be a Deluxe-sized Groove! What is that going to be like? Will it be an entirely new mold, or has Hasbro/TakaraTomy wizardry managed to turn a jet or helicopter into a motorcycle? No way to know for now - but that is definitely a big wheel hanging off of one of Defensor's legs! Keep reading to see the image!



First seen at Toy Fair 2015, the Metal Earth Transformers line consists of non-transforming, poseable metal models of G1 Optimus Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee, and Soundwave!
