More Generation 1
Autobase Aichi has posted an extensive gallery of the recent Japanese toy exhibit, Wonder Toy Town in AEON Lake Town - and there's a fair bit of interesting stuff on display. Besides large statues of G1, Animated, and Transformers Prime versions of Optimus Prime, there's also displays of some of the classic Takara toylines that led up to Transformers such as Henshin Cyborg, Microman, and of course Diaclone and Microchange. There's even a display of current and upcoming Lost Age/Age of Extinction toys! Keep reading for selected mirrored images and a link to the full gallery!
Yesterday we brought you the news that the soundtrack to the 1986 Transformers: The Movie would see a rerelease on vinyl. While at the time we weren't sure about availability outside Europe, we have good news tonight! Amazon has listed a preorder
for this record, which they'll be fulfilling directly themselves. The bad news is that this release is listed at $50.99. For some this may still be very attractive, but others looking for a novelty piece, it might still be a bit out of range!
Music on Vinyl lists an upcoming release of the soundtrack for the animated Transformers: The Movie. Perhaps the ultimate nostalgia hit, for those with a passion for records and a love of the 86 movie's songs this will be a must have. The site notes that a first pressing of 1000 records will be on transparent blue vinyl, for that little bit of extra special. If you remember what a record player is and have one that still works, look for this to be released on December 15th. Music on Vinyl is based in the Netherlands, so check with your favorite music store to find out if they will or can get this for you.
Dedicated Transformers fans often make interesting and excellent art pieces, but this one sits near the top. Posted by Eduardo Salazar Saez in the Transformers Chile Facebook group
, this fan built Ark is part model, part diorama, and part playset, all scaled for Generations figures to use. While there's no specific information about this model's construction offered, it's obviously made with a massive degree of detail in mind and some serious skill - not to mention what must be a big garage to build it in! Click through to see the full size photos and a video tour!
NEW PRE-ORDERS - MASTERMIND CREATIONS EUPATORIUM AND SALVIA - Check out these cool new fembots from the Mastermind Creations line.

Custom Robot has posted images to their Facebook page of an upcoming Revoltech-style Tracks figure, and it looks great! With figures that take advantage of the modular nature (and availability in multipacks, sans figure) of Revolver Joints, Custom Robot has also designed figures of Hound, Sunstreaker, and Sixshot, among others. Keep reading to see the renders of Tracks, and check out Custom Robot's Facebook page to see previous figures and designs!

Various sites have reported on a few upcoming small-scale third party sets that will go perfectly with your Legends and Cyberverse figures, or even your Titan Metroplex! DX9 has shown an image of three new War In Pocket figures: X-04 homages Scourge, X-06 Galvatron, and X-07 Cyclonus. On the other end of the G1 animated series, a new group by the name of Vector Sigma is showing off non-transforming Cyberverse-scaled vehicles from More Than Meets The Eye, Part 1
- including Bumblebee, Wheeljack, and the infamous Tetrajet forms of the Seekers. More info as we get it, but for now keep reading for the mirrored images!
Brave Robotics, a company formed by roboticist Kenji Ishida, has partnered with Tomy and Asratec Corp. to create Project J-deite (Pronounced "Jadeite" like the stone and/or the Sailor Moon
villain). The goal is to create a real, transforming car robot by the year 2020 - and in service of that goal they have released a video of their first prototype, the 1/4 scale robot named, appropriately enough, Quarter. While Ishida's inspiration was said to be the Transformers-inspired Brave Series, there's little denying Quarter looks a lot like Prowl and the other Datsun-mold Transformers. Keep reading for photos and video of Quarter!
Japanese retailer Amiami has posted a pretty substantial collection of images for the upcoming D-Style Convoy model kit. The Optimus Prime with Super Deformed stylings includes Prime's rifle, Axe, and of course the Matrix of Leadership. Which is to say nothing of the adorably tiny Truck Mode Optimus Prime you get as a bonus. And there's even a preview image of the upcoming D-Style Megatron! Keep reading to see 22 new photos!
ACToys user dlarirang has posted images of MP-21 Bumblebee! Shorter than Deluxe Generations Crosscut, yet doubtless more complex, the long-awaited Masterpiece figure looks pretty good in his licensed VW Bug mode. Keep reading to see the photos!
Via their Twitter, The Loyal Subjects have teased the existence of a vinyl based on G1 Jetfire. While little specific detail is given along with it, a fan's drawing noting itself as a wave 4 prediction was included, which TLS's Twitter representative acknowledged as being on to something. If this is our first look at a piece from wave 4, Jetfire would be in a very early state of production, leaving the odd hole in the side as either a by-product of that, or perhaps a feature yet to be revealed. Check out the original tweet and full image below!
