Comic-Con International may be winding down, but Japan's Wonder Festival is just getting going, and of course that means Transformers! Sentinel's Gigantic Action Scorponok is shown along with a Black Zarak version, complete with G1 Fortress Maximus for scale. They scale up pretty well! And then we've got a photo of a super-deformed Optimus Prime from Kotobukiya that comes with an ion blaster, energy axe, some alternate hands and a cutified version of Prime's truck mode.

TakaraTomy has posted new images of their Japanese con-exclusive Grimlock and Slug! Transformers Expo takes place from August 9th through 17th, and the pair of exclusive Age of Extinction/Lost Age Dinobots in G1 colors will be available for pickup at the show. If I'm reading the official site correctly, Deluxe Slug/Slag alone will be 6,000 Yen (about $60) before middleman/international shipping. So good luck, collectors!

Twitter user @deefuzz has posed in-package images of Fansproject's LER-01 Columpio in Diaclone Sludge-inspired colors (and package!), as well as Kar Krash, a G2 recolor of their CA-09 Car Crash, AKA Not-Breakdown. Wouldn't be a Transformers con without a G2 Breakdown, and the Ks are definitely extra-90s. Click through to see the images!
Scans have surfaced of the booklet for the controversial SDCC 2014 "Knights of Unicron" boxset. Beating the joke to death on epic levels, you can read the alternate history of Cybertron's most famous hair-metal band, their decline, individual careers, and reunion tour. You have never seen so many words replaced with "Bot" in one place in your life. Keep reading to see the scans!
