Takara designer Hisashi Yuki has tweeted a new image of the upcoming Masterpiece Star Saber, this time showing off the size of the final mode's body frame as compared to the original. The torso's smaller- which accounts for the smaller Brain of Courage and Saber figures- but the legs are longer and the other figures will account for a smaller, more animation-like percentage of the overall torso, making for much a greater stature overall.

Star Diamond's latest offering, their own take on Kre-O Devatstaor.
Their Devastator has 5 members, unlike Hasbro's 4 members. As an added bonus they are all triple changers with a construction vehicle and animal mode.
The torso of the group is called Overload, who is like a beefed up version of Kre-O Scavenger. He's a bulldozer with an added lizard mode, and forms Devastator's torso.

More images of Overslay and Haymaker. Keith says Haymaker has been done, but they have been sending Overslay back and getting him redone until all QC issues are fixed. If the delays mean figures without issues, I'm all in favor!
Autobase Aichi has posted images of Takara's upcoming LA13, Battle Attack Nemesis Prime. This simple figure from the kid-oriented end of the Lost Age line is in the traditional black, red and teal Nemesis Prime/Scourge color scheme- which as it turns out looks pretty nice with Movie Optimus' flame pattern on the hood of the truck.

Thanks to Felipe Len Njera of Transformers Colombia, we now have official photos for the upcoming Amazon-exclusive version of Slog, this time in G1 colors! While the G1 colors aren't a huge difference from the retail edition of the toy, they do add a splash of gold- and perhaps more importantly they supplement your SDCC G1 Dinobots set, which Slog was not a part of. Keek reading to see the photos!
Masabon1980 has posted a pile of images of Transformers Cloud Brawn and Starscream to his Photobucket! Starscream is a recolor of Generations Voyager Blitzwing with a new face mold and added null rays, and Brawn is a somewhat more painted version of the unreleased hilarious Asian/TRU "GDO" Brawn, a remold of Transformers Prime Bulkhead.

Autobase Aichi has posted images of the Asia exclusive throne that comes with the reissue of MP-08X King Grimlock. It's revealed to be made of a very thin plastic, probably not much thicker than the trays that larger toys traditionally come packaged in.

So it seems we have an update on Moonraker and his remold/recolor Duneracer (Beachcomber?)
(Personally I was hoping for a Buggyman version.)
Company is called Customs by Dawgstar.
Takara's Hisashi Yuki has posted images of Masterpiece Star Saber's Brain of Courage to Twitter, and it's pretty small! It's shown next to the original version, as well as next to Diaclone pilot figures (which for reference are about 1" tall, or the right size to fit in all those empty seats on your G1 Transformers). It's also compared to one of those figures in the seat on Super Fire Convoy/RID Optimus Prime! Keep reading to see all the tininess for yourself!
