Gee, hard to say considering how mediocre 2012's fare has been... Masterpiece Optimus Prime (though the hunt for him was a massive load of butthurt).

I have to agree, 95% of the Prime line up are just exceptional figures. And to think I hated Prime when it first came out. Wheeljack changed my mind and then I started collecting at that point. Unfortunately, 2013 is starting to be a let down.

RID Vehicon, that mold just kicks ass, and along with Just Vehicon has retool and custom potential (I'm listing them together since it's essentially the same mold) Masterpiece Optimus Prime, the new mold shows that you can do better than "perfection" Masterpiece Thundercracker, I... read more

Magic Square is rolling out many new G1 inspired legends scaled figures that transform from robot to crane/hauler truck and back. Fans of the original series can see the new designs with extra details and articulation that will begin shipping March 2018. Read on to see the full list, prices, preview images and link to pre-orders.
Imaginarium recently shared a shot of the upper body of their upcoming Devastator statue, showing off the general styling and detail level. Tonight they've continued downward, revealing the lower half of the body with a look at the legs and a considerable chunk of the base environment the statue stands on. Sadly these are not separate cuts of the same image in order to piece them back together - or I would have - but you can still get a good sense of the overall product between them. Click through for the mirrored image!
Three A, makers of high end - and high price - action figures including a range of licensed Transformers figures has revealed a new entry tonight, exclusive to ThinkGeek.

Its features are more or less the same as the Optimus figure it's derived from, including basic accessory loadout. ThinkGeek's price is just about $400 and they're accepting orders for the new Ultra Magnus right now. Click through to see the promo photos and a link to the product page.
