In the interview Rik announced their upcoming Play With This Toosday campaign, where they will reveal a new figure design every Tuesday.

Mastermind Creations has shared images of their upcoming Cynicus figure to Facebook. Better known as Vos of the terrifying Decepticon Justice Division (as seen in IDW's More Than Meets The Eye
comic series), Cynicus transforms into a large sniper rifle usable by both 5mm hands and
Feral Rex, and has a removable faceplate. Keep reading to see all the photos!

Singapore fangroup Planet Iacon has posted images of diagrams showing Superion and "Ultra Prime," Combiner Wars Optimus Prime's super robot mode. These use only the Wave 1 limb-bots, so each of the Autobot combiners is making use of Stunticon Dragstrip in some form or another. Since they seem to be emphasizing the Scramble City mix-and-match aspect for Combiner Wars it works but still... weird.

Kotobukiya has posted a pretty big gallery of images of the upcoming D-Style Megatron kit! It's nicely poseable, especially for a kit of this squatty body type, and comes with a few accessories. Beyond a separate gun-mode Megatron and the ubiquitous energy mace, Megatron comes with three separate faces. Out of the three - Frowny Face, Shouty Face, and Sneery Face - I think Shouty Face is my favorite. Keep reading to see the mirrored gallery!
The official TakaraTomy PR Twitter account for Transformers has posted a new photo of Army Camo Hound, a recolor of the Generations Voyager mold that is part of a special box set with the Japanese home video release of Age of Extinction. It's not a huge difference from the mass release in either country, but it looks pretty nice and should be a nice bonus for those who want the Japanese Blu-Ray version of Transformers 4. Keep reading to see the photo!
Just in are new images of the Perfect Effect - Leonidas figure. Following the teaser silhouette that hinted at a Japanese Beast Wars character Lio Convoy. The new prototype images confirmation that IS what we will be getting.

Additionally we get a look at the beast mode with weapons in place. Read on for the full details now.
Haven't decided which version of Brainstorm you'll get? TakaraTomy's Hisashi Yuki has graciously taken a break from posting images of MP-24 Star Saber to give us a look at Legends LG09 Brainstorm side-by-side with his Generations Voyager counterpart! As is common these days, Legends Brainstorm sports a good bit more paint. Keep reading to see for yourself.
Via Twitter User @chimichanga345, we have screengrabs of a Japanese TV show where a robotics team can be seen rolling out their very own Convoy/Optimus Prime robot! While not full-size, it's still a pretty impressive bit of engineering. Keep reading to see the photos!
The Alfes2010 Twitter has posted a bunch of new photos of Mega Drive Megatron, in-hand and looking good! The Decepticon leader, cunningly disguised as the Japanese equivalent of the Sega Genesis, stands slightly taller than a Voyager-class figure and comes with a gamepad and a non-operational copy of Sonic The Hedgehog! Keep reading to see the photos!
Autobase Aichi has just posted an album of ToysRUs Japan's exclusives for November, including Advanced Series EX Rollbar and the promotional Carnivac Mini-Con. Rollbar is a recolor of Generations Deluxe Skids in a color scheme similar to the Rollbar figure in the Breakout Battle Platinum Edition set. Carnivac is a recolor of Classics Mini-Con Overbite, and is a gift to those who spend at least three thousand Yen on Transformers in one visit to a Japanese TRU. Keep reading to see photos!
Planet Iacon has posted new images of the first wave of Combiner Wars Generations figures in-package! The Voyager assortment includes Aerialbot leader Silverbolt and Optimus Prime, and the Deluxes include Aerialbots Firefly, Skydive and Alpha Bravo(the new kid)... and Stunticon Dragstrip. It also looks like, despite an impending $2 price hike, comics are no longer included with Deluxe figures. On the upside, that Voyager Optimus Prime looks a bit better in his final production colors. Keep reading to see the photos!
Another crowd source exclusive is this set of Head Shots. According to Play With This Too, this deco of the toys will be available exvlusively during their February crowd funding. The colors for Skull-FCKR were intended to go with the Bitemark body, allowing people to combine the two together. I'm also including a photo-edit of the head on the Bitemark body.
If you felt Age of Extinction needed a little more class, well... you can at least have it in a fancy box! Blu-Ray.com reports that Target is getting a second exclusive Blu-Ray release of Transformers 4, this time in a Steelbook case. The initial release was in a "transforming" package similar to the one Target got for the first film. This version goes on sale starting on the 23rd for $13. If you presume about $10 of that is for the fancy case, that's a fair price for Age of Extinction. Keep reading to see the ad for yourself!
