Famitoy have posted new on their twitter page about possible new reissues supposedly coming from Transformers Asia. But this is not confirmed. The new figures listed include: GalaxyForce Galaxy Convoy, GalaxyForce Sonic Bomber, G1 Star Saber, G1 Diatlas, Optimus Primal, and a Special AirJordan X Transformers Black Convoy. Note this is unconfirmed news that we cannot confirm at this time so take it as a rumor until there is official news about it.
Thanks to YouTube reviewer Bricath we have an in-hand video review of the Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Cyberverse Optimus Prime class figure. Just released in Canada. Predakind is a nice tribute to his big Voyager cousin and a pretty enjoyable figure in his own right. Watch the video review below for the full reveal.
Just in by way of Hamatoys, we have a first look at the Project X Genesis action figure in hand. The toy is shown on display with other figures. This guy is BIG as you can see shown with the Takara Tomy Masterpiece Lambor / Sideswipe action figure that is dwarfed by the Genesis figure. Word was from Project X that the figure would be repainted to look less like the G1 version. This image appears to be the original one figure we saw. We are looking forwards to updated pictures of the new prototype. Robotkingdom lets us know the Tech-Light component will come with all orders. Yay!

As we go further into the digital age, traditional toys continue to suffer. Toy makers, such as Hasbro, were encouraged by a strong September. However, Q3 numbers put the entire toy industry down 5-6%. Action figures seem to be taking the brunt of the decline, as children gravitate more to tablets. Toymakers blame the weak economy, which they claim has hampered R&D and thus prevented the industry from coming up with innovative new products. However, some toy fans may lay blame on details such as poor distribution or higher prices. What's your take on this?
Thanks to the ToyModa page, we have a bit of news and images showing us the Eagle EMP0810 Mini Metroplex action figure. This has to be the worlds smallest transforming Autobot base at just 8.5 cm / 3.3 inches tall complete with antennae, guns, and tiny stickers like the Generation 1 big bot.
The figure will be available at toymoda.com soon. Check out the images in the mean time for the full preview of the Eagle EMP0810 Mini Metroplex toy.
In the 20 years since Marvel's Transformers #80, Megatron has been systematically laying waste to the Earth to provoke a final confrontation with Optimus Prime.

Simon Furman writes "Loose Ends (Part 5)", Andrew Wildman pencils, and Stephen Baskerville inks, John-Paul Bove on colors, and lettering by Chris Mowry. Continue to full review
Thanks to Meister79 over at the Allspark who has shared a new product solicitation from Takara Tomy about new Transformers figures. The list shows most of what we are aware of already, except for two figures from Transformers United seires listed as Reflector and Hardhead! Its no entirely sure what figures will be used as the basis for these toys. Other items of interest include Transformers Prime listings for AM-36 Thundertron, another version of Thundertron that is now a Leo Prime repaint, and a listing for AM-37 Preview Optimus Prime "Re-Do."

Oh yea, the Transformer you love to hate is coming back as the X-Transbots X-2 Survivor Dectcvibot action figure.
