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). None of the others really stand out to me. :/ Most of my more exciting acquisitions have been of toys that came out before 2012, like _finally_ fi... read more

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.

I'm surprised at all the votes for Dreadwing. He was a bit of a turd to me IMO. 2012 was a bit of a letdown for me and I'm losing interest in the figures, so I don't think I could muster up a list for myself.

MP Optimus Prime FE Prime Optimus FOC Soundwave + Laserbeak MP Optimus Prime is just awesome. His poseability really impressed me. I wouldn't say he's better than MP1 Optimus, but he ranks right up there with him. FE Optimus Prime always looked great in the promo pics and I was afraid ... read more

Vehicon is most certainly on top for me. It's among the closest thing there is to perfection in a main line deluxe figure and one that the fandom can mostly agree on which happens.....never!!! FOC Shockwave is another very solid deluxe figure and nice representation. Prime voyager ... read more

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

Just up on their official page, Toys Alliance have posted a new image revealing their MAS-02 MEGATRON figure that will released as part of their Mega Action figure series. The image of the artists rendering shows the officially licensed non-transforming 18-inch figure design. This will be followed by the prototype figure that will be on display at the Animation Comic Game Hong Kong show on 7/28 – 8/1. Get a look at the MAS-02 Megatron concept image after the jump for the full look.
Even with all the flack over the "Transformers The Last Knight" box office sales. Fans buying power helped Hasbro beat Wall street's estimates with a lift from their related Hollywood properties making it to screens this summer. According to CNBC, the franchise brand, Transformers, along with Nerf toy sales aimed at this summer were their leaders in revenues. Unfortunately, Hasbro's overall sales were most modest in the last year and half, which took a bit of sheen off Hasbro's progress as an entertainment media company.
This fun little party bag filler is a brilliant surprise toy that can even be a party activity or fun game! there are Eight Balls in each purchase. Each Capsule comes with a Transformer Hero or Baddie that also doubles up as a bouncy ball!. Each Purchase comes with eight random bouncy ball mini figures. Eight colours and designs to collect. As each Bouncy ball head comes in its own sealed capsule we can't guarantee that you will not receive duplicates though we hand pick the bags so we do try to give you a varied pack as possible.
A Weibo leak yesterday clued us in to the existence of a second electronic device Transformer from Xiaomi, makers of the tablet Soundwave released at about this time last year. Today we have package images of the Optimus Prime device, revealing it to be not a tablet, but a functioning USB battery! The back of the package states it includes "2 3.6V 6500 mAh, non-replaceable, rechargeable Li-ion batteries", giving it a total capacity of 13,000 mAh. Quite decent, though we expect the price to be out of proportion for its capacity given that it also becomes a robot! Click through to see the new images.
After making collections of all of these pop culture staples, which was brandon’s dream, Han Cholo gained the license from Hasbro to make Officially Licensed Transformers Jewelry. Gearing up for the release of the many exclusives at San Diego Comic con, Han Cholo found it fitting to make their release date of the Transformers jewelry collection to go along with the release of Transformers: The Dark Knight. With the new fans of the franchise excited about the movie Brandon wanted to give something to the old school fans of the 80’s Cartoon and thats just what he did. Basing the collection on Generation 1 toys, the first rollout features Optimus Prime, Megatron and Soundwave in all their glory.
