When the teaser trailer for this winter's Transformers: Bumblebee went live, viewers would notice that for a brief moment, Bumblebee appears in a differently detailed robot mode to his other known forms, looking like a Jeep. Well, we now have more information about that, coming from - of all places - an auction listing for the sale of the screen-used prop vehicle from the movie. The catalog listing gives some very vague plot elements in the description, so we're going to push that down a little to protect against possible spoilers, but be warned. Click through to see photos, copied from the auction catalog.
On their Facebook page, MAAS Toys has posted a photo of a color prototype for Tyrant Throne, a large piece of home furnishing for your Decepticon Masterpieces. Or at least MP-36 Megatron. That seems to be somewhat specific, since through some discussion on the Facebook post itself, it was explained that the chair is designed for figures with leg builds similar to that particular Masterpiece, and may not play quite right with others. There's currently no pricing information on offer, and no release window, as it sounds like actual production of the item is due to start soon. But as nice as this rendition of G1 Megatron's throne looks, one could easily hope for an eventual followup with MP-43 Beast Wars Megatron in mind.
Coming to us from Uncle Tree Studio on Facebook, we have a nicely shot assortment of photos covering the VW Bumblebee coming soon to the Studio Series lineup. We just recently saw a first video for the toy, highlighting its transformation, and these photos are a perfect followup. Besides giving us a chance to look over the details of the figure, this includes helpful side by side comparisons with the first Studio Series Bumblebee ...unfortunately revealing this toy to be about a head shorter than the already kind of small Camaro Bumblebee. We've mirrored a selection of photos from the shoot, click through to check them out and for links to the original galleries!

After debuting at SDCC last month, we now have a first hands-on look at Studio Series 18 Volkswagen Bumblebee from Transformers: Bumblebee. The Korean Youtube channel Toy Factory has the video up, which shows a basic look at the toy's two modes, and its option parts including a replacement forearm cannon, a battle mask that replaces the regular robot face, and a clip on saw blade. A good amount of time is also spent showing the transformation, which while sharing a few basic engineering concepts with the previous Studio Series Bumblebee, is doing more still all its own.

Coming as quite a surprise, we've had a small flurry of sightings for Novastar, the final new regular retail Deluxe in Power of The Primes. Novastar is joined by reships of Rippersnapper, Blackwing, and Dinobot Slug in making up Deluxe wave 4. We have reports and sighting photos from Pennsylvania and West Virginia showing the new assortment hitting Walmarts. At present we don't have the exact case breakdown to know if Novastar is shipping in equal numbers to the other toys in the wave, or if it might be one per case like Moonracer was.
Direct from Cartoon Network via their Youtube channel, we have a quick preview clip from what is most likely the first episode of Cyberverse. The video shows Windblade encountering Bumblebee who has lost his memory - and his voice, as his dialogue is rendered in simulated movie-style radio sound bytes, topped off with Bumblebee not even having mouth movements when "speaking". A similarly mute Thundercracker then appears, leading to a fight scene. You can check it out embedded below!
At last! RAC combines the Predacons and looks at the strengths and weaknesses of Predaking. One is engineering, the other is aesthetics. Bet you can't guess which is which! And what caused these decisions, exactly? Well, he has a guess. Click here to watch the review!
Continuing our coverage of the SDCC exclusives which Hasbro kindly sent our way, we have today the unboxing video for the Power of The Primes Throne of The Primes set, and the Transformers: Bumblebee Vol.1 Retro Rock Garage. This unboxing is designed as more of a walkthrough to help show how to minimize packaging damage when opening these toys, because both of them have some excellent package design work that's really good for displaying, and the last thing you'd want is for it to accidentally get wrecked while you try to get at the toys inside.

You're not going to believe this, but... there's going to be a Transformers Cyberverse Warrior class Thundercracker figure! And here's the biggest shock of all: it's a recolor of Transformers Cyberverse Warrior class Starscream! ...Alright, so we're obviously joking. Possibly the biggest surprise of this story for a lot of us is that ToysRUs Hong Kong is still in operation and that's where the figure was discovered, priced at $170 HKD (about $21 by current exchange rates).

Hi, Here is a quick update from www.robotkingdom.com. #1 Hot Items! Wonder Festival Exclusives Transformers Golden Lagoon Masterpiece Convoy . New Listings Preorder. Available in late September 2018
DNA Designs updated their Facebook page today with new color samples showing off what should be the final state of their soon-to-arrive upgrade parts package for Power of The Primes Predaking. We've seen the add on offerings in some detail previously, but as uncolored prototypes or testshots. With this latest update, we can see a lot more yellow present among the extended accessories, though things like the hands and the wing extensions are rendered in matching colors to the original elements.

LEAKED FROM CYBERTRON: New Behind The Scenes Video Shows Off Concept Art For Power Of The Primes Rodimus Prime
The official Transformers Instagram account has posted a video with John Warden giving a behind the scenes look at the creation of Power of the Primes Leader-class Rodimus Prime! The video gives a brief look at some other possibilities that were considered for the figure, such as power-up armor and the ability to combine with other PotP figures in Vehicle Mode. (Also a brief look at a potential combination with the unproduced Leader-class Prima that was considered for the Overlord mold family.) Keep reading to see the video!
