The number of choices in scoring that movie Optimus Prime that matches your aesthetic preferences has really been growing lately. Among the unofficial choices is Challenger from Unique Toys, representing Optimus Prime as he appeared in Age of Extinction
and The Last Knight
. The robot mode is noted to be around 11 inches tall, and it comes with a number of optional faces and weapons. The truck mode looks pretty good too, at least from the angles they've chosen to show it right now. You can check out the full assortment of photos below.
By way of Zone Base
proprietor and RFC alum Rob Springer,
we've got a video posted by L.C.A.Studios
, the promotional arm of Universal Studios Japan!
The "Universal Spectacle Night Parade" featured an Optimus Prime-themed float, a massive animatronic Bumblebee, some extremely neon (in the lighting sense of the word, not toy-collector slang for `90s colors) NEST troopers.
The full video runs about 23 minutes, but we've got the embed set to pick up right about when Bumblebee makes his entrance - keep reading to check it out!
UK Toy distributor NDA Toys
has posted stock images for the Transformers: Cyberverse
Ultimate Class figures, Optimus Prime and Megatron! Listed under their Seinfeld
-themed internal development codenames of "Peterman" and "Newman," respectively, this is the best look we've gotten at the $30 pricepoint figures so far. Both look good, though articulation-sticklers may not be thrilled that Megatron seems to lack elbows. Keep reading for the images!

There's a few questions around Power of The Primes Nemesis Prime. One was answered just yesterday with the reveal of the inner robot name. But there are still others that are important, like what will be the price point given all the extra things it comes with, when will it be released, and also of significant importance, where can we buy it?
Fortunately today, we can at least resolve the matter of where at least US collectors will be getting Nemesis Prime from. Keep reading!
We've talked about it on Radio Free Cybertron
more than once, but it's still fascinating to see: the economic realities that hamper Hasbro hit unofficial third-party manufacturers at least
as hard, if not harder. And so we see a lot of the same characters (Optimus Prime, Megatron, etc.), especially ones that people are sure will sell and have recolor potential. Case in point: MAAS Toys is taking a swing at Cybertronian Mode "Tetrajet" Starscream from the very first episode of The Transformers
in the form of MS-01 Renegade! Keep reading to see the prototype photos.
Flame Toys has shared a number of promo photos for their first Furai Model series release - Optimus Prime. This licensed action figure model kit is priced at about $40 and will be approximately 6 inches tall when built. Flame Toys notes that the model will use a combination of hard ABS plastic for the main body structure, along with a softer plastic for the joints making up the 40 points of articulation for durability, and that while experienced modelers will be able to make this Optimus their own, the multi-color plastic injection process will also make this perfectly accessible to beginners.

Thanks to Alfes2010 on Twitter, we have some (literally) in-hand photos of the quad barrel shotgun accessory that was the subject of the latest TakaraTomy marketing campaign in Japan. Customers buying 4000 yen worth of qualifying Transformers merchandise at participating retailers would receive the quad barrel shotgun, itself a reuse of one of Hound's many weapons originally from the Age of Extinction toy, painted in Optimus Prime inspired deco. You can click through to see Alfes2010's photos showing a few different figures using the special weapon.

, we have word of a pair of store inventory listings for a new pair of Studio Series Voyagers. Another Optimus Prime - seemingly distinct from the Voyager currently available in Wave 1 - is on the way somewhere in the near future. And likely to be joining it is a brand new entry in the series, a Voyager class Bonecrusher. Rumors had circulated about the existence of Bonecrusher recently, and this seems to stand in support of their accuracy. No images as yet, but you can keep reading to see the transcribed inventory listings.
