LAIKA, the animation studio of Bumblebee
director Travis Knight
, has posted an image of Knight from the set of the film! He's leaning on the hood of a heavily-modified 1971 Plymouth GTX that can be seen to have a Decepticon emblem on its hood medallion. The identity of this character is not known at present, but we'll likely find out more as we closer to the release of the film next year. Keep reading for the photo!
As it turns out, Santa Cruz is within driving distance of BaCon! So he's down there now, snapping photos of the Bumblebee
set. So we're posting his first round of recon photos along with the info he's gathered so far, plus a list of some of the classics cars on location we could ID. Keep reading!
The miserable distribution of the Deluxe pricepoint of Transformers The Last Knight Premier Edition has probably left you feeling little hope of seeing the tail-end new mold Cogman available for purchase in a store or online without buying a case assortment of things you might already have - or simply don't want
- along with it. The TakaraTomy release of the figure, solicited for the end of October then seemed like a good safety net, provided you were able to get a preorder while they were available. Unfortunately it seems that wasn't so secure of a backup plan either. Keep reading to find out more.

The effort to promote the home video release of Transformers: The Last Knight
continues as Syfy Wire has been given several pieces of design and concept art from the movie to share. Aside from one "samurai knight" robot design, this mostly concerns location design - and the concept of Megatron negotiating with the US government for the release of several captured Decepticons. There's some nice looking pieces in this small collection, especially the planet shots. You can see them all for yourself in the gallery below!
Vallejo Times-Herald is reporting that the film crew currently working on Transformers Universe: Bumblebee
accidentally destroyed a well known mural, present in downtown Vallejo, California since 2012. According to the story, Paramount acknowledges the error, attributed to a failure of communication, and representatives have promised to pay for the replacement of the art. The mayor of Vallejo spoke positively of Paramount's response since they learned of the importance of the art to the community. Click through to read more about the situation.
Twitter user @miiakira2017
has posted some concept art from the early days of Transformers! How early, you may ask? In some cases, Diaclone
early! The images are primarily of an early version of Metroplex who was of a much stockier, more Grandus-like build in this stage of development. Also, a base mode for Optimus Prime/Battle Convoy's cab, and an Autobot symbol carry case that would have turned into a base of its own! Keep reading to see the images!
It was a while ago that we saw a CG render teaser for a redeco of one of Fans Hobby's unofficial MP-style Monsterbots done up to resemble Beast Wars Megatron. That plan has come to fruition finally with the announcement of MB-03A The Red Dragon, retooled and featuring accessories all drawing inspiration straight from the Botcon 2016 TM3 Megatron exclusive. The Red Dragon is going to be an exclusive at the Shanghai 9th SGC, limited to 300 units which is bound to make this an extra challenge to obtain. We have several photos from Fans Hobby's Twitter and from Aludardlee, keep reading to see them!
Two weeks ago we brought you news of Toys R Us looking at options to address debts coming due at the start of the new year. Today we have a followup, as Bloomberg reports the retailer is planning to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. This sounds alarming, but is not an automatic death sentence, and this act could allow the toy store to continue operations for several years - ideally enough to get out from under its debts. Reportedly some suppliers had pre-emptively reduced shipments to Toys R Us, but at last word, Hasbro was maintaining normal business, so Transformers availability should continue as usual for the time being. Click through for a link to the original article.
Well, here's an interesting wrinkle: Amazon has just revealed the existence of Transformers: The Last Knight
Allspark Tech Sqweeks! And most fascinatingly, he's a Starter Pack figure who includes an Allspark Cube... but this one is rechargeable via USB cable! Keep reading for the photos and description.
One more quick review from diecast on RFC Reviews tonight! FansToys recently brought out a replacement head option for their unofficial Masterpiece-style Grimlock, Grinder. This new head is modeled more closely after the look of the dinosaur mode in the G1 cartoon, giving an easy modification option for owners more inclined to that appearance. How easy? Well, diecast manages it in the space of about six minutes, and still has time for several off-color jokes in the process! Wow! Check out the video in the post below.
On the RFC Reviews channel, diecast has shared a video for the Hascon "exclusive" that caught most people's attention, Titans Return Arcee. This is the latest heavy retool of Blurr featuring a bonus die-cast metal Ultra Magnus Titan Master in addition to its own Titan Master Leinad. All information so far is that this will be available again outside of the convention distribution, with the info card at the event promising major retailers. Meantime, you can watch the video embedded below to get a better look at the whole set!

We have some new full color photos for an upcoming Dr Wu accessory kit. DW-M08 Judgement is a new set of sword and shield for Premier Edition Voyager Class Optimus. The new parts are made larger and more detailed, and in the case of the shield has moving parts. Both pieces are more fully decorated as well. The Weibo post showing these off doesn't give any relevant release details, but based on previous Dr Wu parts sets, this can be expected to be fairly reasonable for what it offers. Check out the full lineup of images, mirrored below.
