it's really really easy to modify the swords so that they are coming out of this arms.. the only problem is, you have to unscrew the forearm for when you want to transform him.. all you have to do is unscrew the forearm, take the swords out, cut off most of the piece that connects the sword to t... read more

that would be really sweet if he had his two swords on his arms while he had that gun on his arm

Hasbro should have made smaller, pop-out swords that are part of the forearms. It would have been more movie accurate and would function better as a gimmick.

I have found a pose I'm perfectly happy with that allows his arms to extend down most of the way and the swords to fold up. So it doesn't bother me so much anymore. But yes, that is probably the biggest design flaw with this guy.

Swords are cool but they dont work well me thinks. I guess if his shoulder plates are positioned out of the way sometimes .. it works on occasion but did they really have to make them permentally attached?

A lot of us think we do see the swords there still. We won't know for certain until some nicer pictures get released of the production toy, but I wouldn't write off the swords yet.

dame that Optimus is awesome but he doesn't have the two swords like the american version does and they already have the supreme Dev

Yeah, I think that's it. Adult collectors in the West don't have as much influence as they'd like to think. Toys are still "for kids" here, while in Japan they'll promote a Mazinger Chogokin with a commercial featuring a Japanese businessman remembering his Mazinger toy ... read more

Or we can wait till they have the face plate flip up (or even better movie akurt side to middle) gimmick

Thanks for the offer. So far I'm pretty happy with how leader Prime's head looks. It's more a case of I might swap that head with Buster Prime's because of the mouth guard. Or I might not. depends how much I do or don't like Prime's mouth when I see it up close (not a bi... read more

Transformers Combaticon Awareness Week
More Age of Extinction News
Deadline is reporting tonight that Hasbro Studios and Paramount have reassigned Akiva Goldsman away from writing the next Transformers movie. Apparently so pleased with his success leading the Transformers writers room, he will go on now to run a similar project for GI Joe, and then again for Micronauts when time comes to develop that property for film. Reportedly Goldsman will still have a supervisory role over the Transformers movie scripts, but will not be directly contributing to them himself. Keep reading for more on the new writers being negotiated and the original article link below.
Prime 1 Studios continues its series of extravagantly detailed - and plain old extravagant - statues of the Movie Transformers! Limited to a run of 1500, with 500 including an exclusive severed Brawl head, Ironhide sports LEDs in his head and his cannons, and will set you back $1600 USD. Luckily there's a nice gallery of photos available so you can give it a nice, thorough look-over before you buy - keep reading to see!
We have our first good out of package look at the surprise movie Sideswipe figure that appeared for order on RobotKingdom this weekend. Thanks to Jimmy Yu and Ck Wong on Facebook, we've got several nice shots of the figure, showing off its extensive silver paintjob. Between that and being the Dark of The Moon mold, this may be the best overall representation of movie Sideswipe out there. Now, if only we knew why it was given AOE Crosshairs' guns... Click through to see all the photos!
RobotKingdom has posted a listing for a brand new entry in the Movie Advanced Series, a limited edition release of Sideswipe. Based on the Dark Of The Moon Deluxe mold and for some reason including weapons from Age of Extinction Crosshairs, it becomes overall quite inexplicable! RobotKingdom has this as shipping on November 14, and as we have no word on other release avenues for this, it might be a good idea to jump on now if you're interested. Click through to see the in-package photos!
Vending Times has reported on the third iteration of Sega's Transformers: Human Alliance arcade cabinet. An arcade-style lightgun shooter, this new "Super Deluxe" version of the cabinet sports an 80-inch screen and mounted lightguns with recoil action. Said to be "about the size of a kid's bedroom," it should be pretty easy to tell if the version you see is the Super Deluxe. Keep reading for more details and a link!
