At East Coast Comic Con this past weekend, Marvel Comics inker Dave Hunt had a selection of his work on display, and included among these pages are parts of an unpublished adaptation of the season three cartoon episode Dweller In The Depths. Reportedly issues like this were prepared as backups in case the normal monthly storylines weren't turned in on time. Only a few pages survive to today, but Roboplastic Apocalypse was able to take photos, which were posted to their Facebook page. Click through, and have a look!
Optimus Prime! Transforms from tractor trailer to robot with headquarters and back. That’s the whole point of Transformers, figures that can be converted between modes. While the process of going between configurations is an important one, we can often attach more importance to factors such as appearance, scale, accessories, aesthetics, posability and the like. But this week, I will be listing my personal top 5 transformation sequences across all the official Hasbro and Takara Tomy Transformers toys that I have had the pleasure of experiencing.

Hasbro has just posted promotional photography for the Platinum G1 reissue Conehead Seeker set. The set which features the first US-reissue of two of these figures doesn't show any obvious sign of modifications to toys or decos, keeping them as a pretty basic set of rereleases. Hasbro's site notably lacks pricing information, but prices in Singapore where this set has been available have ranged the equivalent of $65-$85. Click through to check out the images.
Starscream韋 from Weibo has once again posted some photos of Combiner Wars Ultra Magnus, this time spotlighting the Minimus Ambus figure and compartment in Magnus' chest, as well as a height comparison with Generations Combiner Wars Leader-class Megatron - which Magnus measures up to pretty nicely.

ACToys user wwevskof has posted several photos showing the Platinum Edition Triplechangers set in and out of package. Giving us good looks at both toys in each of their modes, I can't say they make any more sense than they did before. While most people agree Blitzwing resembles Duocon Flywheels, some are suggesting Astrotrain's colors may resemble those of Machtackle from Multiforce. Click through and check out the mirrored photos!
PERFECT EFFECT PE-DX05 LEONIDAS - The Perfect Effect Leonidas figure stands about 9" (23cm) tall in robot mode and contains die-cast parts. This fierce transforming beast changes from a robot warrior into a lion and boasts over 60 points of articulation. We have him listed for $149.99.
TakaraTomy has posted new images of Unite Warriors Menasor to their store page! While we'd seen this photo before, it was usually smaller, watermarked, or both. Also included are new images of Drag Strip and Motormaster, as well as a group shot of the Stunticons in both modes. Keep reading to see!

I would normally take issue with interviewing a Transformers collector who won't reveal his full name, but if you've spent any time around G1 Transformers forums in recent years or TFW2005 generally, you'll know Brad "Th0r4z1n3" B from his legendary seeker-focused collecting or his status as an ex-moderator of that gigantic Transformers forum, so I've no doubt you'll be able to put a face to a name and personality.
