    Hold onto your hats, folks! Last night, the Transformers Collectors Club announced a "Once in a Decade" Archive Sale of many of the their Transformers exclusives from 2005 to 2014. They're needing to clear out space in their warehouse and have put up so many leftover exclusives for sale on the Club store, but in very limited quantities. Unsurprisingly, many of these super rare, super limited toys sold out in a matter of minutes after the sale went up the night before, but as if this typing, 18 Archived items still remain in stock (the sold out ones are labeled as "Discontinued"), so head on over to the Club store to get any of these past that you wish to purchase, for prices far more reasonable than eBay!

    The CYBERGEEKS Alliance Facebook has posted a rather intriguing bit of news in the form of an advertisement for a new Lucky Draw figure. Dubbed "Silver Jetfire", this figure is a redeco of Generations Leader class Jetfire with its entire body decked out in metallic silver paint! The figure appears to be a product of Hasbro Asia since the ad is for the Asian retailer AEON stores. The flyer provides the details on how to enter to win the Silver Jetfire figure, which can be found beyond the space bridge.

    Since a rather vocal portion of the fandom has expressed a distaste for the chrome on Generations Leader Jetfire, Transformers fan customizer Cheetimus Primal has posted a simple how-to video demonstrating quick and affordable means to remove the chrome from the figure that leaves the bright red plastic underneath the chrome fully exposed and chrome-free. This should save a lot of money for folks who are interested in getting the Takara version mainly for its lack of chrome. Through the space bridge for the video.

    Transformers Colombia has come through with another batch of images regarding upcoming Transformers toys. This time, however, they aren't images of toys, but scans of a preliminary product catalog (in Spanish) with information about the upcoming Transformers: Robots in Disguise toyline coming in 2015. Though the images are small, they give us a rundown on the line's size classes, which include Warriors (new name for Deluxe), Legion, Hyperchange Heroes, One-Step Changers, 6" Titan Guardians, 12" Titan Heroes, and 12" Titan Heroes w/ Features. Plus more of the Hero Mashers. Though, do note that the products shown here are not final, nor are the prices (which are shown here in pesos).

    The scans also contain some handwritten notes, including one mentioning that the new RID cartoon will air on March 15 on Cartoon Network, BUT that is more than likely in regards to the Latin American version airing in Colombia rather than the English version, which will air on Hub Network at a currently still unknown airdate. Through the space bridge for the catalog scans.

    TFND has posted in hand images of the Platinum Edition Autobots United 5-pack. The set contains redecos of Voyager Evasion Mode Optimus Prime, Deluxe Bumblebee, Deluxe Drift, Deluxe Crosshairs, and Voyager Hound. Though Optimus sports a new deco that is more G1-based, the other four all bear decos that strive more for movie-accuracy. The figures are also compared to each of the following: Optimus to the other Platinum Edition that comes with Grimlock, Bumblebee to Takara's Movie Advanced Series version, and Drift/Crosshairs/Hound to the standard Hasbro versions. Through the space bridge for the pics.

    Several eBay auctions from seller lena81822 have provided us with in hand images of four upcoming figures: Generations Chromia (an extensive remold of Prime Robots in Disguise Arcee), Cloud Shockwave (a redeco of Generations Whirl), Cloud Starscream (a redeco of Generations Doubledealer), and Legends Whirl (a redeco of Generations Whirl). Though, all of them appear mistransformed. To see all the images, head through the space bridge.

    As we continue to grow and develop through new platforms like TFDb, so too does our toy database. Astute viewers will notice that we have made a number of updates and additions to our 2001 and 2002 Transformers Sections. If you're viewing our site on a traditional web browser, you will notice the theme background based on R.i.D. and Armada (comics). In addition to the mainline figures such as Armada and RID also note the addition of e-Hobby line, Go-Bots and filled in a few other small gaps... If anyone out there is an expert on the Takara Micron line, please feel free to send me a line that's next on the to-do list...

    Friends, we've been quietly working on TFDB, available now for both iOS & Android. With it, you can find information on every Transformers toy ever (from Unicron.com & other sites), read reviews & make sightings from the toy aisle, and post toy pictures right from your phone.

    It's not quite ready for "Prime Time", but we'd like to get more testers & feedback on what's cool about it, what's not, and where it should go from here.

    If you want to get in early, you can learn more about TFDB here, or install TFDB from the App Store (Apple) or Play Store (Android).

    And don't forget to leave feedback right here. Thanks!!!

    The Transformers Collectors Club has posted official artwork for the upcoming Transformers Figure Subscription Service 3.0 Tarantulas figure.

    A redeco of Reveal the Shield Wreck-Gar with the headsculpt of United Scrapheap, Tarantulas comes with two redecos of the Arms Micron Ida, which are meant to both represent his Airachnoid minions and be used for his claws in robot mode.

    Contrary to what was said at BotCon 2014, this figure represents a pre-beast version of Tarantulas, before he acquired his spider Beast Mode in the Beast Wars cartoon, instead of a non-beast version of him for Beast Wars: Uprising, meaning this toy is to go with the BotCon 2006 "Dawn of Future's Past" pre-BW toys.

    R3LOAD Network was in attendance of the Singapore Toy Games Comics Convention, at which Hot Toys' new G1 Optimus Prime (Starscream Version) statue was on display. The video gives a full look at this highly detailed, fully articulated, die cast constructed display piece, showing it from all sides. The figure represents Optimus wearing the wings and null rays of a deceased Starscream as armor and weaponry. Through the space bridge for the video.

    The Transformers Collectors Club has posted a second piece of official artwork for a figure in the upcoming Transformers Figure Subscription Service 3.0. The first art was for Krok, and now the second is for Nacelle.

    Named after one of the Seekers from the Transformers: Exodus novel (along with Bitstream and Hotlink), Nacelle is a retool of the Classics Starscream mold using the wings of the BotCon 2007 Thrust figure. His deco is based on an early prototype deco of G1 Thrust seen in 1980s Takara catalogs from before Thrust was released. And based on little hints from his bio, he is implied to be the barely visible fourth member of the "Welcoming Committee" that briefly appeared in the first episode of the G1 cartoon (the other three being Sunstorm, G1 Bitstream, and G1 Hotlink, whom their "Rainmakers" toys from BotCon 2013 were based on). Through the space bridge for the artwork.

    Amazon Japan has posted full official images of the upcoming Transformers: Legends LG08 Swerve & Tailgate and LG09 Brainstorm figures from TakaraTomy. Unlike most TakaraTomy releases of Hasbro's Generations toys, these all seem to be exactly the same as their Hasbro counterparts with no discernible differences in their decos, save for a single change: Tailgate no longer has the blue flames his altmode had, leaving his car completely white and bare. These images also give us several up close views of Brainstorm's Headmaster gimmick. To see the images, head through the space bridge.

    At long last, we finally have full blown, high quality, fully colored official images of the two newest Masterpieces to come after Ultra Magnus. Thanks to Amazon Japan, these images are for MP-23 Exhaust and MP-24 Star Saber.

    Exhaust is a remold of MP-20 Wheeljack based on the Diaclone "Marlboor Wheeljack" figure, complete with a new head and shoulder cannons, as well as the Immobilizer as an accessory.

    Star Saber is an all new mold based on the Autobot Supreme Commander of the same name from Transformers: Victory. He was the winner of the 30th Anniversary Masterpiece Fans Choice poll, and is the tallest Masterpiece figure to date. Through the space bridge for the pics.

    As reported earlier, the Pawtucket, Rhode Island hosted a special Transformers event "turning ideas into toys!" On hand the mayor gave a small speech on the artistry of toy design and Hasbro's support of the local economy... In case you were not aware, Pawtucket, RI is the corporate home of Hasbro.

    Walmart exclusive Age of extinction figures are finally showing up in our area. Pretty weird to think there are fans who haven't seen the Beast Wars Terrorsaur mold before. Stranger still to see this toy as a blue movie DInobot recolor!

    Kapow Toys has posted preorders with the first look at the next two figures in the Transformers: Legends line from TakaraTomy. They are [url]LG08 Swerve & Tailgate[/url], and LG09 Brainstorm. Each of them is made from their respective Hasbro Generations toys, and while the images shown for these use the Hasbro toys' stock photography (with Tailgate's car mode flames digitally removed), we can likely expect these to all be redecoed to some degree of difference from their Hasbro counterparts. Each of them is due for release in January 2015.

    Hot off the heals of the latest size comparison for Masterpiece Star Saber comes another big reveal for the figure and more! TAG Hobby has posted new info for the Masterpiece Star Saber announcing it officially as "MP-24". The figure has at long last been given its own ID number. Plus, we get an official color image of the toy, the first colored look beyond photos taken at the Transformers Expo. We also see that he is priced for 18,000 yen, which makes him surprisingly LESS expensive that $200 USD; roughly $171.94. Considering his massive size and specialness, that's a sweet deal!

    But that's not all. As Ultra Magnus is MP-22, and now Star Saber is MP-24, what about MP-23? Enter a new retool of the MP Wheeljack mold called Masterpiece MP-23 Exhaust! The first brand new character of the Masterpiece line, Exhaust is directly modeled after the Diaclone "Marlboor Wheeljack" figure that many a fan have covet for many years. Complete with a brand new headsculpt and shoulder guns! And, he's a Decepticon! And he come's with Wheeljack's Immobilizer!

    TF Yuki has Tweeted another round of size comparison images for the upcoming Masterpiece Star Saber. This time, it's the mode everyone's been waiting for: Star Saber's proper "Battle Up!" robot mode! Seen beyond the space bridge are two images, one for the body before the Saber torso unit is inserted, and one after, showing that, despite both Saber and the Brain being smaller than their original figures, Star Saber fully transformed is indeed BIGGER than his G1 figure. LET'S SAY GO through the space bridge.

    EDIT: Added one more pic of the prototype posed with his sword.

    Available September 2nd, SHOUT! Factory releases Beast Machines -The Complete Series, DVD set. See attached pictures w/ the complete press release of our sneak preview... While deemed controversial by Transformers fans in its day (2000-2001) we liked the show quite a bit. -back then, about the only thing we didn't care for was the large level of dissimilarity between the way the characters looked in the show vs the early waves of toys. Thankfully, Hasbro made up for the discrepancies throughout the years releasing toys like -show-accurate Air Attack Optimus Primal and Megabolt Megatron in later RID line, and even now A Deluxe scale Tankor in 2014 Generations line! :)

    TF Yuki has Tweeted several in hand images of the Masterpiece Star Saber prototype that compare the sizes of both its smaller robot forms to their G1 toy versions. The first of these is Saber, Star Saber's standard robot mode body (since "Star Saber" is essentially a Super Mode). Unlike nearly all other Masterpieces, Saber is remarkably shorter than the G1 version, coming up only to to the shoulder height of the G1 figure.

    What's more surprising is the size of the second form pictured, the Brain of Courage ("YĆ«ki no Brain"), which is about half the size of the original figure, making for one very tiny Masterpiece figure that stands as tall as a Diaclone driver. To see the pics, head through the space bridge.

    EDIT: Added more pics of Saber in his torso mode compared to the original.
