Unique Toys has released full color photos of two upcoming Palm Collection Legends-scale unofficial figure sets. Set 04 features Apeface and Brainstorm, and is going by the product name "No Minds & Unhappy", while set 05 is Cerebros and Snapdragon, named "Day & Night". Both sets look pretty good, and show what we think is some clear development progress from their initial release in this series. Plus, one can't help wondering whether there's a body someplace for that Cerebros head mode and where such a thing would fall in comparative scale. Check out all the photos below!
Transformers artist Ken Christiansen has shared even more images of the original package art drawings. Following the previous looks at ... We have some new drawings of Hotspot, Blades and First Aid characters. Read on to see the design images, original box shots, and Ken's comments below.

The Transformers robots may have met their match in the recently launched series TRANSFORMERS VS. VISIONARIES. After teasing their arrival throughout the latter half of 2017, the Visionaries have officially entered the shared Hasbro comic book universe and are taking on the Transformers Robots in Disguise. The debut shocked fans with a dramatic cliffhanger and garnered widespread acclaim, resulting in a sold-out issue at the distributor level and a second printing ordered.

Thanks to Weibo user NOTRAB, we have a look at the Volcanicus combined figure showing us the full Power of the Prime Dinobot team in one. This looks like a really good fan shot, but it may be official. It is close enough that we are just glad to have the full look. Read on to see it mirrored below.

Wrapping up his Best Of 2017 series, RAC looks back at the things that excited him more as news stories than anything else this past year. A lot of those come down to toys that didn't necessarily make his Best Of list for the year, but did unfold in interesting ways news-wise. Pour yourself a bowl of Trypticon's Titan Master Crunch and keep reading to see the best news of 2017!
I've been complaining of late that Generations has lost the imagination it once had, falling back on simply remaking, instead of reimagining. That is most certainly not true for the newest interpretation of the G1 Duocon Battletrap, who has been split to become two separate, new characters who combine with each other. As the (admittedly unwitting) answer to my challenge, I just had to try to score these legends figures early, and so here we are today looking at the first part of the pair, Roadtrap. Does he have a leg to stand on? Watch the video review of Roadtrap and find out!
Perfect Effect promised a short while ago that upgrade products for Power of The Primes were on the way for anyone looking to improve their official toys. We now have a first look at what they have in store, in the form of PC-21, PC-22, and a sneak peek at PC-23. 21 and 22 are hand and foot replacement sets for Volcanicus and Starscream respectively, similar to what was released during Combiner Wars but with updated styling. PC-23 isn't mentioned specifically, but the demo build of Volcanicus can be seen with new armor pieces likely filling the same role as the "armor" made for Menasor, and a shadowed-out gigantic sword. Releases are due to start in March. Click through to see the pictures!
Fanstoys has released new photos tonight, giving the first look at Iceman, which is a bizarre codename they've given to their figure derived from the Aerialbot Air Raid. In standard primer grey we get a few different looks at the robot mode to show off the details and design, though for jet mode we're offered only renders at the moment. Plus a side by side shot with their not-Silverbolt gives a sense of comparative scale, albeit with nothing anyone really knows the size of either, so the usefulness is slightly limited. We've mirrored the photos, check them out below!
Following the first image gallery, we now have the full video review by way of Kuma Style reviews on YouTube. This is a pretty stunning figure that commands a healthy price for all its detailing, posability and accessories. Read on to see the video, new high-res images and the full details from Kuma Style reviews.
Continuing in thier super detailed series of Transformers Generation 1 statues and busts. We have the Quntessons Statue teaser just in from Imaginarium Art. There's not a lot to see yet, with simply shillouettes of the their heads. Unmistakable as they are, the text reference to the "Five Faces of Darkness" leaves little doubt. Read on to see the image and full quote from Imaginarium Art on the project.
