    Last Saturday, August 9th, the Transformers Expo 2014 event kicked off in Japan at the Yokohama Convention Center, and will run until this Sunday, August 17th. At this event, a HUGE amount of Transformers products are on display, maybe even one of almost EVERY TF figure ever made! Over 30 years' worth! Yes, "over 30", meaning that even pre-Transformers items like rare Diaclone and Micro Change figures, and even rare unfinished prototypes and test shots for both released and unreleased toys, are displayed for all eyes to behold. Even the original factory mold unit for the 1984 Generation 1 Optimus Prime toy is there!

    There's even a big "Remember Chicago" display and other displays for the Age of Extinction movie's Japanese release as "Transformers: Lost Age".

    But the crown jewel of this event is arguably none other than a fully colored version of the 30th Anniversary Fan Choice Masterpiece Star Saber figure! And to bring you all as much visual coverage of all that was seen, we're bringing you a vast amount of images from Instagram, Tag Hobby, TakaraTomy's TF Twitter, Autobase Aichi, Yokohama Navi-ko's Twitter, and TFW2005 users Monari and Masabon. Through the space bridge for over 3 decades of wowness.

    The Transformers Collectors Club has announced the second Club Store exclusive for 2015. This exclusive has been hyped up as being something for more than one fandom, hinted as being a crossover figure for both Transformers fans and, perhaps, G.I. Joe fans. Well, the wait is over and today the second exclusive has been revealed to be none other than Marissa Fareborn with Afterburner!

    Introduced in the third season of the G1 cartoon, Marissa was a member of the EDC (Earth Defense Command) who often teamed up with the Autobots on her missions. Here, she will finally be realized in toy form with the use of various G.I. Joe action figure mold parts (her torso is speculated to be from the G.I. Joe: Resolute figure of Scarlett).

    Afterburner, however, will be a straight redeco of the G.I. Joe: Retaliation Wheel Blaster Bike, in a deco based on the G1 Technobot of the same name, in homage to Marissa's teaming up with the Technobots in the G1 episode "Money is Everything". Through the space bridge for the press release.

    We got three times the in hand pics here, folks. For TFND has posted in hand images of both Generations Crosscut (a remold of Skids based on the e-HOBBY G1 Crosscut figure) and Generations Jhiaxus (an extensive remold of Armada Starscream based on the G2/IDW G1 Jhiaxus character in a deco based on the RID Jhiaxus toy). Note that the Jhiaxus character recent took a form like this in the IDW comics using what was called "Reactive Armor", copying Starscream's body.

    And eBay seller lena81822 has posted in hand images of the AOE-but-not-AOE Streetsmart figure (a redeco of Prime Beast Hunters Prowl) that comes in a 3-pack with First Aid and Groove. Through the space bridge for all the pics.

    Million Publishing has posted new official images of their upcoming Transformers Generations 2014 Volume 2 exclusive Goshooter and Shuta Go figures. An extensive redeco of Generations Deluxe Nightbeat (the most painted version of any use of this mold), this figure is meant to be a new version of the Autobot Headmaster Junior Goshooter from the Super-God Masterforce cartoon, now as a former Headmaster Junior with a life of his own.

    Shuta Go is a redeco of the Generations Legends Targetmaster Blazemaster, representing the Masterforce human Shuta Go, who was the human boy who bonded with the lifeless Transtector that resulted in Goshooter. Now, reunited with his living Autobot self, Shuta's new form is a new smaller Transtector that he is a "Godmaster Junior" to. Through the space bridge for the pics.

This DVD set contains the entire 26-episode series with interviews and audio commentaries from the cast and crew. Through the space bridge for the press release.

    ACToys has posted in hand images of the Masterpiece MP-10A Convoy BAPE Ver. A redeco of the MP-10 Convoy/Optimus Prime, this figure sports a mostly green deco with a camo-based stripe in truck mode. The left shoulder has also been retooled to remove the molded Autobot symbol, which is replaced here with the logo for Japanese clothing company A Bathing Ape, whom this toy was made in conjunction with. This release does not include the trailer, Roller, or Spike, coming with only the figure, the gun, and the Energon axe. Through the space bridge for the pics.

    Autobase Aichi and Million Publishing have posted official images of the Transformers Generations 2014 Volume 2 poll winning exclusive figure Goshooter with Shuta Go. A redeco of Generations Deluxe Nightbeat, Goshooter is a homage to the 1988 Super-God Masterforce Autobot Headmaster Junior of the same name, who was a redeco of G1 Siren. The smaller figure that accompanies him is Shuta Go, a redeco of the Targetmaster Blazemaster figure that came with Generations Legends Bumblebee. Shuta is the original human character who gave life to the larger Goshooter robot in the cartoon, hence "Goshooter" = "Go Shuta". So this is essentially two of the same guy after one gained a life of his own separate from the other. Through the space bridge for the pics.

    TakaraTomy designer Hisashi Yuki has Tweeted two new size comparison images for Masterpiece Star Saber, in which we get a good idea of how tall the figure is in both his "Battle Up!" Star Saber robot mode and his standard smaller Saber robot mode. As Star Saber, the figure is just slightly taller than the G1 Star Saber figure, making it roughly, more or less, 24 inches tall. Maybe a bit taller. As Saber, the figure is roughly the same height as Masterpiece Prowl, who is essentially the height of a short Voyager class/tall Deluxe class figure.

    But the best news to come about for this figure is what can be found in scans from the Transformers Generations 2014 Volume 2 book, courtesy of the Cybergeeks Alliance Facebook, in which we... They did it. The masterminds actually did it! Masterpiece Star Saber has his Brainmaster gimmick! It is a go, people! I repeat, Brainmaster gimmick is a LET'S SAY GO! With that said, LET'S SAY GO through the space bridge for the pics!

    Brand new images of Masterpiece MP-22 Ultra Magnus has surfaced in the new Transformers Generations 2014 Volume 2 book, and the Cybergeeks Alliance Facebook has posted scans from the book revealing these pages, which in turn reveal a plethora of features and gimmicks for this figure. The truck cab can detach from the trailer, despite not transforming on its own. Spike and Daniel can ride in the truck cab. The robot mode can have its face changed out for another, with an Optimus Prime styled face under the proper Ultra Magnus faces. A Matrix can be stored inside a chamber within his torso. And we even get a glimpse at the toy's transformation. Through the space bridge for the pics.

    Former Hasbro employee Aaron Archer has made a post on his Tumblr containing a rare piece of Transformers history never seen before until now. It is a concept sketch for an unused Megatron design that he created back around 2002-2003. Some might not find the fact that it went unused all that surprising, considering that it is of a most unorthodox design that is very atypical of most Megatron designs. The altmode for this design was to have been either a bomber or a spaceship. Through the space bridge for the sketch.

    Autobase Aichi and Radiokaikan has posted new in hand images the new Optimus Prime featuring Original PlayStation and Mega Drive Megatron. Both are new figures that transform into downsized non-functional video game consoles, though Megatron does at least have a working USB port on his fusion cannon and a non-working Sonic the Hedgehog game cartridge.

    TFND has posted a wide amount of in hand images of the new Movie Advanced Series Optimus Prime Rusty Ver. figure. A redeco of the AOE Generations Voyager Evasion Mode Optimus Prime, this figure attempts to strive for a movie-accurate rusted truck mode, but with a robot mode that's more of an original work. It is exclusive to Toys "R" Us stores in Japan. Through the space bridge for the images.

    The Transformers Collectors Club has Tweeted a piece of artwork that reveals the first Club Store exclusive figure for 2015! Previously, they announced that the 2015 membership freebie would be Lio Convoy, a retool of the Generations Thrilling 30 Orion Pax mold with a new head. Now, the have revealed that the first store exclusive figure is to be none other than Nova Prime, a second retool of the Orion Pax mold using the same new head as Lio Convoy.

    For those unaware, Nova Prime (or at least, the version that this toy homages) is a character hailing from the IDW G1 comics series, in which he was one of Optimus Prime's many predecessors. In ancient times, he led an expedition aboard the first Ark ship, the Ark-1, into a place called the Dead Universe, wherein he and his crew succumbed to the natural evils of that universe, warping and corrupting them all. Nova Prime became the malevolent Nemesis Prime (who, for once, was not an Optimus Prime clone), and has played a part in many evildoings within the greater story.

    The Transformers Masterpiece Ultimate Guide book contained within its pages three interviews with all the main designers involved with the Masterpiece toyline, and thanks to user SydneyY of TFW2005, we have translations for all three interviews. Hironori Kobayashi, Shogo Hasui, and Hisashi Yuki all provide us with some insight of what all went into making the previous Masterpiece toys, as well as info on what is to come from future releases like the upcoming Star Saber figure. A lot of what is discussed in these interviews has never been made known before, and some of it may surprise you. For instance, did you know that Masterpiece Grimlock's tail/neck gimmick was inspired by Beast Machines Rattrap? Anecdotes like this and more can be found in all three interviews beyond the space bridge.

    TakaraTomy has Tweeted the first image of what looks to be the new packaging for the line of Transformers: Legends toys, with LG01 Rattle placed in the box. Unlike the traditional cardback style packaging for Deluxe class figures, it looks like TakaraTomy is going retro with this line by using box style packaging for all of its figures, as a homage to the original Japanese Beast Wars packaging. The packaging also includes the vertical "TRANSFORMERS" logo running up the side of the box like on the Age of Extinction packaging, only inverted in both position and color scheme. Through the space bridge to see the packaging.
