Generation 1
More Generation 1


Weibo user NOTRAB has shared out a few photos of a sample of the Soldier Studio Unicron "lamp". In reality a really big light up statue of Unicron more than anything one might realistically call a lamp, a fact reinforced by its pricepoint of many hundreds of dollars. However, as we can clearly see in these new photos, for the degree of detail combined with the overall size of the piece, the price is probably earned, at least for those who enjoy collecting Transformers statuary. We've mirrored the photos, keep reading to take a look!




TakaraTomy has posted a quick three minute video to their Youtube channel featuring the licensed Infobar mobile phone Transformers figures from Japanese provider au (read more about this here). The video features a prototype of the Optimus Prime phone, being used to demonstrate the transformation from handset to robot. The video is region locked, so while we cannot provide an embed, we do have full resolution captures from the video showing off the major steps and details. Keep reading to check out the gallery!




One might argue that as long as there have been Transformers, there have been knockoffs - starting with the Hasbro Transformers that were clones of Takara's Diaclone and Microman lines, but that is a story for another time. When it comes to KnockOffs (KOs) few of have gotten as much attention as the Korean Knockoffs that get things so wrong in such a marvelously right way.




About a year ago, Toys Alliance revealed MAS-01, a licensed, large-scale figure of G1 Optimus Prime. Recently they've posted a teaser on Facebook showing off what will be the second entry in their Mega Action Series. Probably coming as no surprise, Optimus is followed by Megatron. The image now is semi-obscured, and only shows the upper half of the figure's body clearly, but it's easy enough to see that the design basically follows what MAS-01 was doing, using the G1 design with some reimagining. No further details are revealed, but we expect to see more soon. Click through for the full image!




It's one of those "death and taxes" things: When an Optimus Prime exists, it's an inevitable outcome that it will, sooner or later, get an evil deco. Or become Ultra Magnus - and sometimes both! But in this case, Prime 1 Studio has fulfilled one of these obligate conclusions with the reveal of a promotional photo set of a Nemesis Prime edition of their stylized G1 Optimus. This has a Decepticon emblem adorned base, but otherwise features the same extras as Optimus in blaster and axe options to go along with the black paint job. We have the images mirrored below, click through to see!




Medicom presents new Bearbrick figures from Transformers Age of Extinction! These unique collectibles feature the classic Bearbrick shape but with character-specific paint application. The figures include new versions Age of Extinction Optimus Prime, Nemesis Prime and Starscream.




Just up on the official Hasbro Pulse site we have a new installment that takes a look Transformers Figure designs from the past. Hasbro touched base with their very own Hasbro Senior Product Designer on Transformers, Sean Carmine Isabella to get insights on how and what elements from classic toys like Starscream and Blur were re-imagined for Robots in Disguise.




Soldier Story Toys have announced their officially licensed Transformers Generation 1 Unicron Table Lamp. The light up statue stands over 2 feet tall includes light up features through out the piece including Unicron’s body, faction symbol projection, and even a Hot Rod with Matrix of Leadership on the base. The highly detailed sculpt includes over 70 LED lights with USB charger built in. Read on for more details and images below.




Hasbro's Portuguese website has revealed "Playskool Friends" style figures of the Transformers - small, single piecem friendly, safe figurines for very young children. The website listing describes these as a Collectible Edition, and does not seem to use the Playskool Friends branding in association with them perhaps indicating a different intent for release. Pictures of Optimus and Bumblebee are shown, and the listing also references Arcee, as well as Chase, Boulder, Blades, and Heatwave - the cast of Rescue Bots as part of the overall assortment. We've mirrored the images, keep reading to see!




The first figure in ThreeA’s impressive G1 series, this piece features 59!! Points of articulation, 30% diecast body, LED features (including a matrix of leadership) and stands 16”/41CM tall! This is the definitive Optimus Prime piece to get, set for a 3rd quarter release, preorders up at TFSource.com.




XM Studios Premium Collectibles shared a new round of photos of a prototype piece of the G1(ish) Optimus Prime statue they're working on. The 3D printed prototype shows just how large the statue is intended to be, matching an adult's torso in height. The statue's design takes G1 Optimus and piles on mechanical detail to give it a more complex look. And according to XM Studios' Facebook post, they're not done detailing it yet, so expect the final issue to go even farther than this! We've mirrored the photos, keep reading to see them now!




While Hallmark has offered G1-themed Christmas ornaments in the past, they've now branched out into stylized plush toys! Their "itty bittys" line of plushes are about four inches tall and fall into the same basic cutesy, low-detail, unified body type lines as Funko's PoPs and Dorbz. The line includes Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Soundwave, & Megatron, and run $7 each. Keep reading to see photos!




Imaginarium Art has posted a new render to their Facebook page revealing an upcoming statue. Inspired by the animated Transformers The Movie, the statue depicts Grimlock and Wheelie fighting off a pack of Sharkticons in a very dynamically arranged piece. This appears to be the payoff to a post from back in November where they showed off various angles of a high detail Grimlock render, which we can see now was being designed as the centerpiece to this statue. Pricing and release details TBD, but keep reading to get a good look at the renders!




Just when we thought we have seen it all, Transformers make the high-fashion scene at the 2017 Fall Menswear and Pre-Fall Womenswear Fashion show in Milan, Italy. Designer moschino was there with a whole line of clothing that feature none other than the original G1 Transformers. Based on original box artwork, There's more than meets the eye with these designs that are quite extreme, even by GeeWun standards.




Asian blogger masterandy has posted a series of in-hand images of Year Of The Rooster Optimus Prime! A reissue of Hybrid Style Convoy, Rooster Prime is a nice little figure with a ton of accessories. Keep reading to see the images!
