Following the previous Milk Magazine figure from Dark of the Moon, we have new images are just out of the Milk Edition Transformers Age or Extinction EvasionOptimus Battle Damage Version. This figure will be a limited edition of 200 pieces made to be offered by lottery drawing. Read on to see the in-hand images courtesy of Planet Iacon.
In a rather subtle piece of satire appearing on National Report
- a political "news" site that seemingly dances right on the razor's edge of Poe's Law
- "Micheal" Bay (whose name is not spelled correctly once
) spoils Transformers 5 for us by announcing that he'll be killing off Optimus Prime and replacing him with Rodimus. Keep reading for an excerpt and a link, which may include Age of Extinction Spoilers!
Planet Iacon has also posted images of a Hot Toys Optimus Prime! No other details are available, but Hot Toys are makers of high-end, usually 1/6-scale human figures (they've done some exquisite releases of Iron Man from the various films) and you can expect whatever they do with Optimus Prime to be beautiful, elaborate, and really, really expensive.

Thanks as always to Singapore superfans Planet Iacon! Takara put up a slew of new product announcements last night, and we've got details on all of them! Robot Masters are being reissued, including the somewhat scarce LioConvoy, we're getting Nemesis versions of Evasion Mode Optimus Prime AND Voyager Grimlock, and there are some extra-adorable mini-Transformers headed your way as well. Keep reading for details and pricing! UPDATED:
These toys will be available at the Transformers Expo in Japan, which takes place August 9th and 17th. If you want your Voyagers in Nemesis format, contact your favorite middleman service now!
Joining the list of exclusive redecos coming in Japan from TakaraTomy are Slug and Scorn in Black Knight varieties. As the name suggests the toys are primarily black with accents of other colors. Scorn is particularly striking, but that toy may not be capable of looking bad. The toys will be released at a variety of stores in Japan this November at a price of ¥3200 each.

Just in from TakaraTomy's website we have updated images of the "rusty" version Optimus Prime depicting the Voyager Evasion Mode toy in the decayed state from early in the movie. New to this posting are side by side comparisons with a standard Evasion Mode Prime showing very clearly the differences. And that Rusty Prime's robot body is far too white for an Optimus. See all the pictures below!
TakaraTomy has posted a new page on their website with details about a Japanese release of the rally car Skids redeco currently slated to be part of a Platinum Series multipack in Hasbro markets. The figure, Rollbar will be offered in Japan as a Toys R Us exclusive and will be available in November of this year. Of potential note is that Rollbar is shown with two of Skids' small gun. Whether this is indicative or just a photography error remains to be determined!

Toynews-online.biz has posted an article listing Hasbro's top ten toys of Christmas 2014. A couple of Transformers made the list, including entries from both Age of Extinction and Rescue Bots, as well as Marvel toys, My Little Pony figures, Play-Doh, and of course board games like My Monopoly. Keep reading for the full list!
The HK-TF message boards have posted images of the upcoming Generations Voyager Slog - the Age of Extinction equivalent of G1 Dinobot Sludge. He's a big, bulky dino with massive swords that double as cannons- and he's the dumbest of the dumb (as his package bio tells us). He's also the closest to G1 colors of the mass-market movie toys, being primarily silver and black with some red. Keep reading for a link and for mirrored images of the figure!
With the World Cup out of the way Age of Extinction is rolling out to the most soccer-obsessed corners of the world- and we've got extensive photos of the Rio de Janeiro premiere! On hand were director Michael Bay, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, and actors Nicola Peltz (Tessa Yeager), Jack Reynor (Shane Dyson). Keep reading for the full gallery!
Once more with thanks to Transformers Colombia, we have new product shots of the exclusive Platinum Edition Silver Knight Optimus Prime, recolored from the "First Edition" Optimus we reviewed several months ago. Notable compared to prior shots is the addition of chrome detail elements on the torso, greatly enhancing what had been a very bland appearance. To see all the photos which we've mirrored, keep reading!

Business Insider has published an article on Hasbro's development process and criteria for making their properties into films. Obviously toys with stronger stories are favored, but the article reminds us that despite Battleship's hardy flop there are still movies in development based on board games - one based on the Ouija board, and Candy Land starring Adam Sandler. A Magic: The Gathering film is also mentioned. Click through for a link to the article!
