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!
Kids Logic has once again provided us with a review sample - this time for their gigantic Mecha Nations Devastator! This SD figure is taller and wider than a Voyager class Transformer and has a ridiculous amount of detail, articulation, and even an infrared remote feature! Click through to see for yourself!

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!
30 years ago, you may have had a G1 Grimlock under
your Christmas tree. But this July, Hallmark is offering the next-best thing: a G1 Grimlock in Dino Mode to hang on
your Christmas tree! He'll run you $16 for a fairly compact, non-transforming Dinobot. Keep reading for more details!

Optimus Prime converts from robot to vehicle in 7 steps and comes with his Aerobolt Mini-Con that powers him up with pop-out wings, lights and sounds. Download the Transformers: Robots In Disguise app and scan his shield to unlock character, weapon, or Energon points! $49.99
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!

Seen previously as a grey prototype at a hobby show in Hong Kong, tonight we have a quick pair of full color images for Ultra Magnus from the Ultimetal line. You might remember the Ultimetal Optimus Prime, a large scale figure with removable armor parts to show detailed internal structures, and which by itself cost in the neighborhood of $1000. Ultra Magnus of course adds full Magnus armor on top of a recolor of that Optimus body, making a very impressive piece, but one whose potential price tag is staggering to even think about! Keep reading to see the new photos.
