Prime1Studio has posted a gallery of images of their new PMTF-1 Optimus Prime statue! Coming in at 2 feet tall and USD $1000, the statue features LED eyes and was designed by famed Transformers movie concept designer Josh Nizzi - and in a different, perhaps better world, this would have made a great
movie design for Optimus Prime. A limited edition of 750 will have Prime's trademark energy axe instead of the normal edition of 1500's Ion Blaster. Keep reading to see!
When Hasbro wanted to roll out their own cartoon series in the 80s, They went to Japan to work with Takara's Microman and Diaclone toy lines. Drawing the primary sources for the Transformers G1 toys that debuted in 1985.
While only a small portion of the Microman series were utilized for Hasbro's Transformers. Microman toys were sold in America well before in 1976 as Mego's Micronaughts toys. Great to see these line together again under the Hasbro umbrella. Which, are set to join forces in the new IDW REVOLUTION crossover extravaganza!
Uproxx has posted official photography of the SDCC GI Joe And The Transformers Set! Featuring in this set are Scarlett with Powerglide (as made from the Cobra Rattler mold) and Zartan with Soundwave (As represented by a HISS Tank with a really nice deco.)

Will this be true of the other SDCC sets? No clue yet, but keep reading for the photos!
RAC has taken an extensive photo gallery for Mecha Nations Devastator! This SD-style figure features a ridiculous amount of articulation and moving parts - to say nothing of detail, a remote-controlled light-and-sound feature, and a really pretty stand! Keep reading for the full gallery, and thanks again to Kids Logic for providing us with a review sample!
Imaginarium Art has posted some new images of their
previously announced Rodimus Prime statue! The sculpt is a work in progress, but shows an excellent likeness of the Autobot leader. Release date for the statue is not yet known. Click through to see the photos!
It's a good day for artistic endeavors by Transformers fans! Tonight we have a batch of photos to bring you from Alvaro Valdivieso Paredes, who's gone to Facebook posting his custom built Autobot starship Ark as seen in the G1 cartoon. Though this one might take some cues from the mild redesign it had for its appearance in Beast Wars rather than being strictly original-cartoon-derived. Though no distinct scale is given, seeing the real estate it occupies on tabletops helps give a sense of its bulk. While it may not be the biggest ever, it's no less impressive, and you can keep reading to see it in full!
It's certainly not a new thing - Transformers fans wanting to represent a favorite character can and do show remarkable talent in recreating robots in costume form. And so it was with Anthony Darkenstein (I so hope that's his real last name) who created a fantastic costume of G1 Galvatron to wear around the Calgary Expo that took place this weekend. This skillful effort was rewarded as he managed to turn heads not just at the show, but all over the internet as photos of him made their way around social media. We've collected a few of them, so keep reading to have a look for yourself!
An enterprising fan in China has apparently decided to take it upon himself to add a Metroplex of appropriate scale to help display his collection. We don't know the name of the builder (but if you do please let us know!) but these photos show some impressive building work, starting with a metal frame. One image even suggests it's designed to lay down for the battlestation/ship mode, though that's not depicted in the finished image. Despite being taller than a human, it seems this is still not quite big enough, being shown with Smallest Transformers. But it's still super impressive building! Keep reading to see the pictures!
By now, Ript Appearel have mashed up so many cool popular ideas, we thought they would never do anything new and cool with the Transformers again, until the Reservoir Bots. This is one is more than meets with surprise from artist Samiel, who's taken all our favorite Decepticons and turned them into a Reservoir Dogs homage that just full of badness. Read on to see the images and where to order the goods.
Just in from the Brazil Toy Fair that just happened to be going on the same weekend as BotCon. We have a surprise with the Transformers Platinum Edition Rise of Rodimus Prime boxed set. This is an interesting one with Hasbro including the Titanium Rodimus Prime figure mold and his Matrix of Leadership, along with the Universe 2.0 Galvatron figure mold. It will be interesting to see if Hasbro re-issues Rodimus Prime with die-cast parts or plastic. Read on for the gallery and translated report from Transformers Dioramas.
Prime1Studio has posted a new image to their Instagram account to promote their upcoming G1-inspired statue line. First up is Megatron, whose design is more modern and elaborate than the original but clearly shows G1 influences.

A nice surprise has popped up on Ebay giving us a look a the original cel animation models for the Transformers Generation 1 cartoons. The four auction lots, have posted numerous images showing the hand colored characters renders for a wide variety of characters including: Powermaster Optimus Prime, Alpha Trion, Unicron, Predaking, Firestar, Constructicons, and many more that you can see mirrored below.

Even the official, authorized third parties get fixated on an idea sometimes. Case in point: the ever-growing field of large, high-end, super-articulated, non-transforming Optimus Prime action figures. The latest entry in that arena is Toy Alliance's Mega Action MAS-01 Optimus Prime, which stands 18 inches tall and boasts 72 points of articulation including fingers and rocker ankles.

You may remember the Ultimetal Optimus Prime from 2013-14,
an $800 non-transforming figure with removable (magnetic!) armor pieces. Now at C3 in Hong Kong, Action Toys has revealed Ultra Magnus, who seems to be able to swap between White Optimus Prime and full-on Magnus armor sets! It looks great... but it's not gonna be cheap. Click through for a closer look!
