Ellia Kassoff of the company Strategic Marks has announced that the company's plan to revive Kay Bee Toys - once Toys R Us' largest competitor in the toy field - have been accelerated in the wake of TRU's impending closing. Kassoff seems extremely optimistic about the potential for a revived KB to take TRU's place in representing roughly 20% of all toy sales in the United States. Keep reading for more information!
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: I don’t wanna grow up, I’m a Toys R Us kid. They got a million toys at Toys R us that I can play with. I don’t wanna grow up, I’m a Toys R Us kid. They got the best for so much less, you’ll really flip your lid! From bikes to trains to video games, it’s the biggest toy store there is (gee whiz!) I don’t wanna grow up, cause maybe if I did, I couldn’t be a Toys R Us kid. More games, more toys, oh boy! I wanna be a Toys R Us kid!

Over on the Free Comic Book Day website, writer John Barber and artist Alex Milne have given an interview about their FCBD offering, Unicron #0! Barber outright calls Unicron "the end of the story we've been telling for over a decade," and touts the involvement of all of IDW's current TF writers in the planning of the story. Keep reading for an excerpt about Unicron #0, and a link to the full interview where Milne & Barber talk about what comics mean to them!
Thanks to SurgeOpressor we have a sighting report of the new assortment of Cyber Battalion figures featuring Shockwave and Sideswipe, plus some new photos of Shockwave. The figures were purchased at a Walgreens in San Francisco (of which we assume there must be a staggering number all told) with at least one other sighting in the same area indicating the beginnings of distribution for the new wave. They're priced the same as their predecessors at Walgreens, around $18, though it seems to vary by location. Click through to check out the new photos.
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!
