In The Transformers
#45 out in shops and digital distribution today, one particularly notable new character design was introduced that left quite an impact. Issue artist Andrew Griffith has subsequently tweeted out a full, clean piece of art showing off the design for everyone to enjoy. Its role in the story makes giving any more specific identification a matter of rather significant spoilers, so if you haven't read the issue yet I'd suggest holding off on going on to check out the image, but otherwise keep reading for a look at some cool mechanical design work!
By way of TFW2005, Daim Choc and Weibo user GRAVE have posted images of the first prototype out of Garatron, a new third-party group! Gand of Devil G.o.D.-01 Thunderstorm is based, appropriately enough, on IDW's Stormbringer
version of Thunderwing as designed by Don Figueroa! Details on price, size, and release date are not currently available, but keep reading to see the photos!
Transformers @ The Moon's coverage of the TF Trademarks beat continues, and we've got one that looks promising today: "Titans Return"! The trademark application was filed just this past Friday. The "Titan Wars" name itself was revealed accidentally and prematurely at BotCon 2015 - could this be the final name for that, or just a tagline? Either way, Hasbro's reserving it for Transformers use. Keep reading for more details!
Online retailer Toywiz has placeholder pages up for the Combiner Wars Combaticon Deluxes, and complete with official package shots. Bear in mind these are of the non-US market packages, hence the absence of comics. This does give us one of our clearest looks yet at each of these figures in their production plastic colors and paint. While these are technically 2016 Wave 1, it looks more and more likely we could be seeing these well in advance of year's end here. Click through to take a look.

Thanks to Genmon Photo Vault on Facebook, we have some nice photos of the Platinum G1 Dinobots. These are the Generations Series AOE Dinobots in classic colors and with G1-based robot heads, which for better or worse are probably the nearest we're going to get to true Classics Dinobots anywhere in the foreseeable future. Fortunately on that front, these come off looking quite nice with these decos and their retooling. Click through to check out the photos!

Daim Choc has posted new images of Beelzeboss' Combiner Wars Optimus Prime upgrade kit to his Facebook page! While sacrificing the parts that allow you to combine the figure and create Ultra Prime, the Spiritual Leader set makes Optimus a dead ringer for his IDW self, improving his proportions and looks - and what's more, it is fully possible to transform the figure with the kit in place. Click through to see it for yourself!
It's that time again! The T3 Hobby Shop Facebook page has posted images of the Combiner Wars Combaticons - both individually, and in their combined form of Bruticus!

Earlier today we brought you the short iTunes preview for More Than Meets The Eye
issue 45, due to ship next week. In it, there's one very unusual panel depicting the characters in the form of toys in a grassy field, using a real photograph. As it turns out, Maz at TF Square One was the source of that photo, and he's written a blog post giving a behind the scenes of his involvement with the newest issue of MTMTE. Keep reading to see the panel in question, plus an excerpt from the blog and a link back to the full article!
