has posted more images of Studio Series
wave 1 Deluxes Ratchet, Bumblebee, Crowbar, and Stinger. Which Hasbro has just made temporarily available on HasbroToyShop! The full debut should be in April with this being a pre-sale. Keep reading for the link.
The usual leaker has posted an image of a model sheet for Grimlock that matches the Cyberverse
design, except with a significantly higher level of detail and a slightly differently stylized dino mode. Is this the Cyberverse
design, or part of the possible "Evergreen" styled reboot of Generations, or something else? Either way, keep reading to see the design and stay tuned for our Toy Fair 2018 coverage as Hasbro makes its presentation within the hour!
Just in form Toy Fair 2018, we have news of two new Transformers figures from Flame Toys. What appear to be non-transforming editions of Optimus Prime and Starscream. These look a lot like the designs we saw from their Kuro Kara Kuri Drift with extended articulation and weapons.
Update: these are said to be offered as model kits that you assemble yourself. No word on their price and release date at this time. Read on to see the images of both figures.

Deluxe Wave 1! Bumblebee, Stinger, Crowbar, and Ratchet are all looking pretty good in their stock photography, and hopefully we'll see more of them later today. Click through to see!
Remember Mighty Muggs? One of Hasbro's attempts to get in on the lucrative vinyl minifigures market, Mighty Muggs was moderately successful about 10 years ago and then more or less disappeared with the exception of the occasional show-exclusive. But in the intervening years Funko conquered the world with PoP! vinyls, so Hasbro's going to try once again for a piece of that pie.

Tonight, just hours before Toy Fair 2018 kicks off with Hasbro's fan media presentation, we finally have confirmation of Power of The Primes Deluxe Wave 2 at retail in the US. signals3
picked up a Moonracer at a Walmart in Springfield, Missouri, albeit by taking it from an unopened shipping case. While we don't endorse that behavior, it does tell us that the Deluxes are in to the distribution system and should start properly hitting shelves soon, filling in the last hole in US availability for wave 2. Click through for the sighting photo.
Last night we found out about the new anime colors variant of Masterpiece Prowl, MP-17+, which would release as a TakaraTomy Mall exclusive. But surprisingly today, it looks like that will also be available for purchase in the US. US retailers, such as sponsor BigBadToyStore now have preorder listings for MP-17+, marked as a Hasbro product, and due in September. The timing - and similar pricing - sure makes this sound like an effort at a simultaneous (or as near as we can get) Masterpiece release by both Hasbro and TakaraTomy, which could have some interesting potential if it becomes a regular occurrence!

Tomorrow is the day! New York Toy Fair 2018 is finally here, and we go into it with a great deal of uncertainty. What happens with the Transformers movie franchise in stasis lock? Are Cyberverse
and Evergreen really going to run two parallel toylines with clashing and overlapping pricepoints using basically the same character models? But what we are certain about is that there are things that we could
be shown tomorrow that RAC would love to see... and won't. Keep reading to find out what they are!
The biggest surprise to this is that it was announced before Bumblebee: The Movie
was even released. Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner
announced today that the Transformers Cinematic Universe is cancelled. The universe - which Paramount had so much faith in that they took four to five of the prospective scripts and put them in a blender to make Transformers: The Last Knight
- will be replaced by what is described as a 'reset' of the Transformers franchise to happen no earlier than 2021 going by the film schedule offered to investors. Keep reading for more details.
Coming to us throw Dengeki Hobby, we have the first reveal of an upcoming Masterpiece exclusive. MP-17+ follows along the likes of red Alert and Sideswipe as an "anime" colors version of Masterpiece Prowl. The deco is most distinctly different with the blue tint to the windows as well as more simplified markings to be better in line with how the character was represented in the cartoon. Along with that, this release will include the shoulder rocket accessories that were previously a bonus item for purchasing through a specific Japanese retailer. MP-17+ Prowl appears to be a TakaraTomy Mall exclusive, due for release in September. Click through to see the photos!
