Announced at SDCC 2014, G1 Slog is probably the least different from his retail deco but if you want to round out your Comic-Con G1 Dinobots set, he's a must-have!

The Furyu Prize Blog has posted images of a new Lost Age Optimus Prime prize figure that will be released in November 2014. Seeing as it's listed as a "prize" figure, it'll probably be available primarily through Japanese arcades through the UFO Catcher and similar crane-game machines. The figure's listed as 16cm tall, but we don't know if that's head height, or to the top of the sword. Keep reading for the mirrored photos!

(Figure King) magazine has revealed that 3,000 Yen (About $30) worth of Age of Extinction toys will net you a special Astrotrain-themed Micron at Japanese ToysRUs stores this August. The clear purple plastic Mini-Con uses the same mold as Payload, the space shuttle partner of Generations Legends Cosmos. Keep reading to see the scan!
Concept Artist Steve Jung, who has also worked on The Avengers
, has posted a selection of his concept art to Facebook. Highlights include the interior of Lockdown's ship and its very regal cockpit, the Hong Kong street battle featuring the Dinobots, and most interestingly Widow Maker, a female Decepticon who was to transform into a Pagani Zonda. She was Jung's only full character design for Age of Extinction and, sadly, she didn't make the cut. Click through to see all the mirrored images!
Robot Kingdom has shared an image of the upcoming AD-31 "Saikyou" (Strongest/Ultimate) Optimus Prime, which appears to be a power-up form of Prime that uses the Generations Leader class mold. Seeing as that mold was already used as AD-01 in a similar but superior deco to the US release, could this be a Silver Knight color scheme like the one Target seems to be so in love with? More info as it becomes available, but for now check out the incredibly vague magazine scan!

Shartimus Prime brings us his latest Transformers 4 Age of Extinction Lockdown One Step Changer action figure video review and image gallery. Yea, its a One Step, but its LOCKDOWN!!! Give this video a gander for the full details on this snappy little guy along with a nice collection of high quality images for staring at.
What's coming and gone for most of us, has just begun in Brazil, France, Germany and other counties where Transformers 4 Age of Extinction's release was delayed due to the World Cup. As the movie continues to show, the big goal of a $1 billion box office is not too far off with current sales at $886.2 million. This is not certain as the biggest markets in the USA and China given up the lead to the new summer films like "Planet of the Apes" that moved into the top spot this weekend.
A member of the Chinese-language TF forums Transformers Never Die has posted an extensive gallery of AD-20 Black Knight Grimlock, the Japanese release of Generations Leader Class Grimlock. This figure has the stark grayscale look to go with its silver chrome... which of course means the torso's using a warmer color of chrome than the other parts of the body. I'd love to swap torsos between this and Generations Grimlock. Read on for mirrored photos, and lots of them!
