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!
Being the very first we're hearing of it, most likely "Year of The Rooster Optimus Prime" makes you imagine another rerelease and/or color tweak of MP-10 Optimus, right? Well, surprisingly enough it isn't! Out of left field, this new Platinum Chinese New Year release is based on Hybrid Style Optimus Prime
, a tiny, highly articulate and somewhat over-engineered figure from around 2006. TFND has a few shots of the new set in package which we've mirrored. And if you think the small size will make this affordable, don't bet on it - the original release was on the expensive side even in 2006's economy!
Dengeki Hobby has posted images of a new line of figures titled "Transformers Bitfig," due out in Late December. The assortment of inexpensive candy toys, styled similarly to Bandai's 66Action line, is specifically titled "Part 1," so obviously there are plans for more of these at some point in the future. But the first wave goes with a lot of the big names: Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, and Jazz. If Bumblebee's not in Part 2 I'll be shocked. Keep reading for more info on the figures as well as the difference between "deformation style" and "super deformed"!
The East Point City shopping center in Hang Hau, Tseung Kwan O, New Territories, Hong Kong is currently featuring an excellent Transformers exhibit. The Battle For The Ark is centered around a human-scale reproduction of part of the classic Autobot Headquarters, notably the Teletran-1 console, along with a lot of other thematic elements to accompany it. Displays of large, notable toys are included, as well as a sequential transformation for Titans Return Alpha Trion and Astrotrain using multiples of each toy. This has gotten some good local coverage, and we've mirrored some of those photos - you'll definitely want to check these out. Keep reading!
Imaginarium Art posted an update to their Facebook page showing a concept render of an upcoming new piece. G1 Grimlock will be coming in the near future, featured in his dinosaur mode. The Facebook post shows several angles of the statue-to-be, giving a good look at the intricate detail that will be incorporated in the final product. No release date is given at this stage, nor price, but those details are sure to come soon enough. Keep reading to take a look.
Via Sideshow Toys we have a new selection of photos showing off the G1 Megatron statue coming from Prime 1 Studios. The nearly $1000 piece due out in summer of 2017 features a reimagined take on the original G1 design, with more angles, shapes and mechanical details. The numerous photos show all angles of the statue, pick out the light up elements, and focus in on the intricate sculpt work of this high end collector piece. We've got the gallery mirrored, so keep reading and have a look!
For most of the United States, Halloween is just about done with now, but we couldn't let it pass entirely without sharing this one excellent bit of pumpkin artistry. Chris Hyde posted to the Facebook group Transformers Addicts showing off his creation, the Unicron jack-o-lantern, styled faithfully with jaws and surface spines. The planetary ring system may have been a little too much to accomplish, though. While the image of the Chaos Bringer will rot away in a few days, the photos will last forever, and you can see them below!
XM Studios has posted images of their work-in-progress Optimus Prime statue based on the G1 design! There's still a ways to go on this: there's no color yet, and XM's fans seem to believe there will be alternate pieces judging by the comments. And of course it's all subject to Hasbro approval. No details yet on pricing or availability, but it's an intricate piece and a collector statue, so we expect it to be priced accordingly. Keep reading to see!

The people at Milk + Soap Studio out of Asia are releasing what appears to be the first in their Sofubi Tranformers Collection From Milk + Soap Studio.

The small scale figure does not appear to transform, or include any other accessories. The item is priced at 1,080 JPY / $11 USD, with what looks like a release date in October. Read on to see the images in the gallery for more info.
Imaginarium Art has shared on their Facebook page a sample render of another upcoming Transformers statue - Devastator! Having previously shown off statues for Soundwave and Ultra Magnus, as well as a render of a Rodimus Prime, Imaginarium is quickly getting attention in the Transformers community for their detailed offerings. The teaser comes with little in the way of specific detail, but we're sure more will be coming soon! Keep reading to see the image.
Roll Out Roll Call, in collaboration with The Spacebridge and Transformers @ The Moon, have released heretofore unknown images from a Italian GiG toy catalog showing an unused color scheme for the original Scorponok! Most fascinatingly of all, the green and orange with fluorescent green highlights seems very much like it was probably the source of Energon Scorponok's color scheme. Keep reading to see the catalog photos as well as other photos from The Spacebridge of proposed Scorponok & Black Zarak color schemes!
Just up on the officail Prime 1 Studio page are new official images of the PMTF-02 Megatron Transformers: Generation 1 Statue.
The non-transforming statue is one of the best sculpts of the Decepticon Leader we have seen to date. The figure is super detailed with a stunning silver metallic color theme that celebrates most of the glory of Megatron, complete with his P38 arm cannon. We don't see his mace weapon, but there is a new sword weapon that my be the replacement.
Read on to see the images for the PMTF-02 Megatron Transformers Generation 1 Statue.

We also get a good shot of Ultimetal Ultra Magnus, though only in its basically fully assembled state. Click through to see the mirrored photos.
