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.

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!

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!

It never ends. At least, not until after Power of the Primes. Machinima has announced the first celebrity voice castings for the followup to the just-ended Titans Return series, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Besides those listed in the headline, also mentioned are Gregg Berger, presumably as Grimlock, plus returning cast members Wil Wheaton, Judd Nelson, and Kari Wahlgren.
