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!

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!
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!
We recently saw an unofficial, non-transforming, high detail action figure representing Optimus Prime from Transformers Prime
by Iron Warrior. Iron Warrior has just shown off another upcoming figure of the same type, this one called "Strife 07" and based on Brawl from the 2007 Transformers movie. This figure likewise does not transform, but seems to focus on sculpt detail and articulation more. Unfortunately the provided photos don't represent the scale of the figure well, so it's unclear at this point whether Brawl will be appropriately large. You can check out the mirrored images below.
Valentines day is coming. Nothing says "I Love You" more than GIANT FRIGGING ROBOTS!

Zeta Toys still has a bit to offer us today. Direct from their Weibo we have two images of Armageddon, their unofficial Bruticus shown as a color testshot. The individual components are all represented in their respective colors, though the add-ons for the combined form look like they may still be works in progress - at least lacking some finishing paint details if not other color changes. The images themselves say that this is not necessarily a final deco for the assembled whole, but it certainly gets the idea across! Check out both photos mirrored below.
It's unofficial Aerialbot season, and just in we have a nice, detailed gallery of one of Zeta Toys' offerings for their Kronos project. "Fly Fire" is their take on Fireflight, or "Firefly" as the character was officially renamed for trademark purposes during Combiner Wars. The gallery shows off the figure quite well, with quite a range of articulation to be had and some nicely crisp sculpt work. We get a look at the arm mode too, including a close up of the construction of the combiner elbow. Click through for the gallery credit and Fly Fire images!

As the second day of Hong Kong's 2018 Toys And Games Fair proceeded along, a joint reveal by Hasbro and TakaraTomy provided attendees a first look at the next Movie Masterpiece toy following Barricade, none other than Ironhide!
