Thanks to news and images on the Cyber Gundam Blog we have word from TakaraTomy on new Transformers Fall of Cybertron Data Disk (Cassettes) sets. Soon as I saw the Tape Bots were back, I knew we would get all the classic G1 characters and here they are. Takara will offering the figures in 4-pags instead of two like Hasbro has chosen. The TG-15 Autobot set inlcudes Eject, Ramhorn, Rewind, and Sundor. The TG-16 Decepticon set will include of Frenzy (blue), Rat Bat, Ravage, and Rumble (red). Look for these guys to be priced at 2,980 Yen / $37 USD with a release in Japan set for April 27, 2013. Get a look at the images below for more information.

Comics Alliance has posted the preview for next week's Revolution tie-in issue of The Transformers, and these few pages make it look amazing. Be back here early next week for the review, right now keep reading for the full preview of "Thundercracker and Buster Save The World! (and Marissa Faireborn Helps Too)" A DECEPTICON who wants to be a screenwriter. A dog who wants to, I don’t know, eat stuff and chase squirrels or whatever dogs want to do.

Autobase Aichi has retrieved a fresh batch of pictures from Weibo, where user wujingguang has posted in-hand shots of Hot Rod and Twinferno! Both are looking pretty nice. Hot Rod in particular looks like he will be the worthy update to Classics Rodimus we've been waiting on for ten years now. (Which was itself the Hot Rod update fans had been waiting for for twenty years. We're all old, fellow collectors!) Keep reading to have a look at the figures!
Thanks to Michael Mullins-Wright, we have the first verified sighting of Titans Return Brainstorm in the US! A Walgreens in San Diego (which probably doesn't narrow things down much) has received stock. Reportedly there were four units at this location, which may be an indicator of the quantity to be expected at any given store. Whether restocks are subsequently possible will remain to be seen. So if you're after this figure to finish out your main 1987 Autobot team, it's time to start hunting!
