More Generation 1
RobotKingdom's Facebook page has posted a link to Kuma Style's video review of TFC Phobus! Phobus is Not-Divebomb, the fifth part of the Ares combiner (who looks an awful lot like Predaking). Not only does he have a massive set of wings expandable to a Predaking-appropriate wingspan, but even comes with Power Core Combiner-compatible connectors so he can quit the Predacons in a huff and go form his own
combiner team with blackjack and drones. Keep reading to see the review!
Singapore's Planet Iacon has posted a gallery of in-hand images of the super-big, super-elaborate, super-expensive Ultimetal Optimus Prime! The figure comes with a near-complete set of magnetic snap-on armor, a fancy base with stand, a Matrix of Leadership that also fits on the stand, and eyes that light up and a faceplate that moves when it talks. And it's huge.
As is the price- about $760 USD. Keep reading to see the photos, which is as close as most of us are ever going to get to owning one of these!
Transformers Legacy: The Art of Transformers Packaging
, by Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster is the newest entry in the realm of Transformers art books, and the latest offering from the team that brought us The Ark
and The Allspark Almanac
. But Transformers Legacy
goes in a different direction from prior art books which focused on the art of a particular video game or TV show. You may think you've already seen it all when
it comes to G1 and G2 box art, but you've never seen it like this. And I believe most everyone will find at least a few things within that they've never seen before! Read the full review!

A couple of short videos have appeared on YouTube that demonstrate the uber-expensive Ultimetal Optimus Prime and some of its special features. Namely, the magnetically attached outer shell
and the animated faceplate that moves in time with the Peter Cullen voice recordings. I don't know if it's worth the asking price of roughly $760 USD, but it sure is impressive. Keep reading to see the videos!

BigBadToyStore has just posted preorders with images for TakaraTomy's Transformers Legends versions of Generations Arcee, Chromia, and Windblade! Arcee's a significant improvement and more accurate to the G1 cartoon color scheme. Chromia is... more accurate to the G1 cartoon color scheme. But also very much worth mentioning is Windblade, who is a signficantly better match for the color scheme used for the character in the comic. It's possible the face paint is superior as well, but better photos will be needed to say for sure. In the meantime, keep reading to get preorder links to BBTS and see the photos!

In the video we get a rundown of the figure's articulation, followed by the incredibly fiddly process of changing it to one of the most uncomfortable looking pens I have ever seen.
