Amazon posted listings for Transformers Prime Beast Hunter action figures that give us a look at the character summary bios the Cyberverse Commander Class Unicron Megatron and Ultra Magnus figure. Read the character summary bios for all the figures now.


I was looking at my ultra magnus from TFprime (2nd release) and he's missing his smoke stacks on the back flaps. I figured I would get another one somewhere and return the one without the smoke stacks... I saw another one at walmart yesterday and it didn't have the smoke stacks either... what the heck? Anyone else see this? UPDATE: Seems to be a unannounced running change with the figues as the Hasbro preview images show them, but the production images do not.


Thanks to FMH forum member Aesir who has posted news from Hasbro themselves that the official UK street date for Transformers Prime Beast Hunters action figures will be June 1, 2013. That is great news for all the Transformers fans who have been watching and waiting for these new toys.


Yea, you read the title right. Is it any wonder WHY Hasbro's sales are tanking? They seem to only care about keeping Wall Street engaged with such patronizing double speak in a press release of all things. Sorry to use this PR as a place to scurtinize them, but I hope someone at HQ reads this and puts the fun back into Trasnformers one day. Hasbro is faltering and Beast Hunters has clearly become a scramble to justify why their "Franchise" isn't getting love from shoppers. Read more and tell Hasbro you want more than meets the stock price.


Thanks to Hydra over at the Allspark who has posted some details about the Takara Tomy Transformers lucky draw Optimus Prime sound stages that are limited to 50 pieces. He has been nice enough to share the translated quotes that the stage says in the Japanese Optimus Prime voice. Check out the quotes and image from the original Lucky Draw campaign below for more info.
