More Generations News
We've got a quick few images on Weibo giving us our first in hand look at the new Cyber Battalion Sideswipe. Part of an assortment with the brand new Shockwave, Sideswipe has been accused of not entirely representing the typical look of the character, and now we have a clearer idea why: It shares fundamental engineering (and probably some of its parts) with Prowl. While many parts look brand new, some of the inner body structure does seem to be shared between the toys, and they seem to transform identically. You can get a good look at the pair side by side in the new photos to compare them for yourself, click through to see!
This evening via twitter, Flame Toys has shared some new photos of an early sample of their upcoming figure of Tarn. Tarn is the first of IDW's Decepticon Justice Division to get an official, licensed figure representation, albeit a non-transforming one. Flame Toys reports that they've finally finished the color master as depicted in these images, which should represent what the full production run will look like later on. We have the photos mirrored for your convenience, check them out just below!
Thanks to Weibo user NOTRAB. We have look at the Transformers Power of the Primes Optimal Optimus figure. The Beast Wars Maximal Transmetals II design figure is finally seen out of package. Giving us a look at what the final production edition will look like. Read on to see the figure out of the box in his robot, ape, and jet modes after the jump.

It is being widely reported that the UK branch of ToysRUs has failed to find a buyer and all 100 stores will be closed within six weeks. The first 25% have already closed or will be closing within a few days. There have also been reports via Twitter of TRU UK not honoring store credit and giftcards, so if you're sitting on those in another territory, you might want to spend them now.
