Up next in the slow trickle of Transformers items being shown at WonderFest, the Medicom display has what may be our first look at the Age of Extinction deco Optimus Prime Bearbrick figure. Back in December we brought you images of the packaging art, but had yet to see the figure itself. Now that we have, we can say with certainty that it's an Optimus Prime Bearbrick in a deco that could be interpreted as being inspired by the movie. Keep reading to see for yourself!

From Masabon we've got many photos of the Deluxe Stinger just released by TakaraTomy. With its only representation in Hasbro's AOE line being Legends recolors, AD-32 Stinger is the first iteration of the character (we use the term loosely here) that can mix with the rest of the normal product line. Recolored from the "modern" Bumblebee figure, it's a good likeness as a robot, but of course doesn't remotely match the Pagani vehicle mode. Click through to check out all the mirrored photos!
Transformers Asia has posted a large image to their Facebook page showing off everything that comes with Ultimate Optimus Prime! Based on the TakaraTomy Jetwing Optimus Prime, itself a further modification of Revenge of the Fallen Leader-class Optimus Prime, this version of the toy seems to come with everything that was ever
included with any version of that figure plus a new "Knuckle" attachment. Prime now has spiked knuckles for all his robot-eviscerating hijinx! Keep reading to see for yourself!

Keep reading for the full list!
Via an Ebay seller we have some new looks at the soon to be released two pack of Human Alliance Barricade and Soundwave. Human Alliance Soundwave was limited in release originally, though this edition may not be much easier to get due to its high base price and being an Asian market exclusive item. And despite this, neither toy appear to have any significant deco additions over their individual releases. Click through to check out the photos.
For whatever you might feel about the content of Age of Extinction in general, many agree that it at least had some nice music cues. While a score for the movie was available for a short time, the complexities of licensing forced its sale to be terminated after a fixed number of copies. If you missed out on that, you have another chance to listen to Steve Jablonksy's music for the film, including tracks that have never been released before

World of 3A has posted a series of photos showing their upcoming Dark of The Moon Megatron. This 18-inch tall figure does not transform, but features plenty of articulation, lots of sculpted detail to make it as visually accurate to the design as possible, LED lighting, and even has a fabric cloak to hide the unsightliness of the head wound given to him by Optimus Prime. The first one, from before Optimus shot his head off his body Just Because. Keep reading to check out all the photos!

The latest episode of the QTransformers animation is up on YouTube! There's... not a lot to recommend this one to non-speakers of Japanese unless you like watching Autobots fantasize about a bird pooping on a person, and the person then being hit by a meteor. But if you want to puzzle over that
one, keep reading to see!
While a nomination for Best Picture was only ever possible within the realm of Michael Bay's fevered, explosion-laden imagination, historically the Transformers films have picked up nominations (though never a win) in the visual effects categories. But Age of Exinction will have to content itself with laughing all the way to the bank, as it's been ignored by the Academy this Oscar season. Oh well, there's always the coveted Golden Raspberry Awards,
where TF4 is very
well represented. Keep reading for a link to the full list of nominations for the curious!
