Twitter user @GanguStars has posted an image showing two of the shelf-warmingest Titans Return Deluxes - Scourge and Chromedome - marked down to $7! In the case of Scourge this is particularly great news since you can now build the Sweep army of your dreams. As for Chromedome... time to double-check for that running error with the TakaraTomy face again! Keep reading for photographic proof.
Unicron.com reports that MPM-3 Movie Masterpiece Bumblebee has been spotted on clearance at a Maple Grove, Minnesota ToysRUs store for $69.90! Still a significant chunk of change, but an improvement to be sure. TRU clearance is sometimes variable, but it still may be worth checking out your local branch. Keep reading for details!
After a lot of crazy things happening all in a relatively short span of time, it seems like life is finally starting to settle down, with efforts to smooth tensions between Cybertron and Earth being foremost in Optimus Prime's mind. I'm sure nothing could possibly turn up to get in the way of that! "The Falling, Chapter 1: Surfeit of Primes" written by John Barber, art by Kei Zama, colors by Josh Burcham.

One of the aspects of the Transformers movie franchise that rarely if ever generates discontent are the scores by Steve Jablonsky. Now - as has happened in the past with such films as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Paramount has made the score for Transformers: The Last Knight available on a "For Your Consideration" website in preparation for the Academy Awards. Keep reading for the link!
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Lots of fun stuff going on this week! We announce the winners of our Twitter contest, we are giving away Titans Return Arcee and The Last Knight Valvotron! The voice cast for Power of the Prime was announced! We share our thoughts! Plus we speculate on rumored upcoming Transformers assortments. Also, there's a ton of other news this week including a heavy third party week, with new Combaticons, Aerialbots, and upgrade parts. We talk about the upcoming Movie Masterpiece Ironhide, new photos of Volcanicus and much, much more!
Transformers At The Moon is continuing to release their collection of original G1 audio recordings, this time moving onto the episode "A Plague of Insecticons"! As is typical of these tapes, you've got the late Wally Burr providing voice direction - and a number of lines that didn't end up in the final episode. Keep reading for the video and a transcript!
Rob Springer of Being Awesome, ZoneBase, and Radio Free Cybertron has found a new seasonal Transformers product: Valentines Day cards that convert to a tiny thumb war arena complete with temporary thumb tattoos! These use the new "Evergreen" character designs that we're also seeing used for the new Cyberverse animated series premiering much later this year. Keep reading to see!
Coming from Weibo, we have some grey prototype images showing MechPlanet's small-scale Optimus Prime-alike. HS02 seems to be called "Mini Lider" and while the photo quality for many of these isn't great, it seems to be a decent representation of the character design. The photos we have show an energon axe and rifle, plus flip up panels on the forearm in a similar manner to the pop-up communicator screen from the Masterpiece. The chest is also conspicuously hinged, which probably means it has a matrix and storage space for it. You can find all these photos mirrored below!
Transformers Authentics, the "evergreen" style simple budget figures that seem to be taking after the Cyber Battalion series now have product listings on Hasbro's website. The first batch including Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Starscream, and Megatron are not yet available for purchase from Hasbro Toy Shop, with their "Buy" buttons leading to error pages. But these listings do confirm the SRP, with prices listed at $4.99 each. The listings include the same images that we saw with the Amazon releases recently. Keep reading for links to the individual pages.
Blast Off has been leaked a couple of times, enough to be reasonably sure that it was something to actually exist in the upcoming product line. We have a bit more confirmation of that now through a listing on ACD Distribution. This doesn't give any new information, but it's joined by a second listing that is much more interesting for its implications. Listed additionally as a Generations Special Edition Deluxe is a Repugnus! Repugnus had been conspicuous as the only Monsterbot character that didn't end up making it to the Deluxe scale, but it seems that will finally be achieved, bringing the whole team together. Keep reading for some good old speculation!
Via the iTunes store, we have the first look at the opening pages of the upcoming issue 13 of Lost Light -- which conveniently has nothing to do with the solicitation blurb! Keep reading to see the preview pages. CABIN FEVER! Crammed into a dead Decepticon astropod that's ten sizes too small, the displaced crew of the Lost Light face their most serious threat yet: each other. As tensions rise and tempers fray, only one Autobot is arrogant enough to think he can save the day. Enter Rodimus, expert mediator.
Newsarama has provided our first look this afternoon at the full length preview for next week's issue of Optimus Prime. Issue 15 launches "The Falling", a storyline which should see the return of Onyx Prime, an event hinted at for some time already. We'll have a review of the issue for you early next week, and in the meantime, click through to see the preview in our gallery below.
With Power of the Primes, combiners are back! But some combiners, well... they never left. Hanging around the ThinkGeek warehouse in particular is Victorion, the Fan Made Combiner, who has been a major presence in IDW's comics for the last few years and featured heavily in the Machinima Prime Wars Trilogy(but don't hold that against her) and is only $37 before shipping through the retailer. Victorion is a great figure, especially at that price, sporting an excellent and stable combined weapon and the first dedicated hands and feet in modern combiners. Keep reading for a link!
We still don't know when or how (c'mon, Toy Fair!) but it seems like it's happening: regular Weibo leaker tf-factory has posted leaked artwork for Power of the Primes Blast Off! It's a nice looking painting which, unsurprisingly, shows him off in his shuttle mode to emphasize the Unite Warriors mold in use here. Also, we've got artwork for Studio Series Optimus Prime and Starscream. Click through!
Takara has released 10 new figures into their Power of The Primes line. This wave features quite a few dinobots and fighter jets including Grimlock, Sludge, Starscream, and Dreadwing. Also included is a prime master of Alchemist Prime.
