Thanks to Matt for the heads up about the new Transformers licensed "Ready to Bear FW17" merchandise made by Italian luxury fashion house, Moschino. Those looking for ultra-high-end fashion Transformers collectibles will be happy to find these premium priced products that are a strange amalgamation of Optimus Prime and a Teddy Bear. Which, is less puzzling than the prices. The prices star at $120 for phone cover and work their way up to $1,050 for a nightshirt. No kidding, read on to see the images and more info in the gallery after the jump.
TFW2005 reports that a new set of SD-style figures are coming of G1 Optimus Prime and Bumblebee under the title Taodoll x Transformers. Why do they have those odd cowlicks? As it turns out, there's an answer for that. Click through for details!
Autobase Aichi has posted new images of TakaraTomy Arts' second wave of Transformers Bitfigs! Standing just 4cm tall or 1.5"-ish, the new assortment includes two recolors - though Skywarp has a new expression compared to Part 1's Starscream - and two new figures, Ironhide and Soundwave! Keep reading to see the images.
If you'd like a small break from the endless waves of The Last Knight merchandise right now, this might be of interest! Preorders went up on Entertainment Earth for two sculpted mugs, bearing the likenesses of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee - the G1 varieties, that is. Each mug is about $20, and from the mockup art looks like they'll have fairly detailed sculpts. They're expected around August - just be careful you don't poke yourself in the eye with one of Optimus Prime's ears! Keep reading for the images.
Last month we showed you a small teaser image from Hallmark's "pop culture store" of a Soundwave ornament
that would be offered, joining several previously offered Transformers ornaments. Today we have both larger images, as well as some new information about this item. In addition to the already known $15.95 price, the newly-posted product page indicates this will be made available as of July 15th, for everyone interested in having another Decepticon hanging from their tree.

Hasbro Toy Shop has posted their listing for the new Rubik's Crew Optimus Prime figure! You may feel that the collectible display figure market has gotten a bit of a big head, with new lines PoPping up left and right. But Rubik's Crew gives an actual purpose to cuteified SD display figures: Optimus Prime's head is a fully functional puzzle whose body serves as a display stand. Keep reading to see the photos!
Looks like the two foot tall Unicron is not the end for statuary from Soldier Story. The generously-described "lamp" that depicts Unicron standing atop Cybertron's surface is apparently to be joined in future by a planet mode Unicron as well. No indication of its specific light up elements yet, though it seems to be more of a prototype, at least judging by its stand being partly comprised of Bandai Action Base parts. Also shown was a grey prototype for Rodimus Prime unleashing the power of the Matrix. It's a bit easier to guess what will light up on that one! Check out the pictures below.
Hallmark's online "pop culture" store is currently showing previews of a wide variety of ornaments and other licensed novelty items. Among the selection is a reveal of their next Transformers ornament, representing Soundwave's G1 toy, joining Optimus, Megatron and Grimlock in the regularly growing lineup. Only a very small image is available right now, and the item is only listed as "coming soon" with a price of $15.95. We've mirrored the image, click through and have a look.
Imaginarium Art has posted to their Facebook that their Changeable Pose Statue of Ultra Magnus is up for preorder now! At $1,250 SGD (about $900 USD), the limited edition of 388 is probably wise. But hey, looking is free and it's pretty impressive to look at! Keep reading to see the latest images.
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.
