G1 He Ultimate Doom, pt 1 Audio Published by Transformers at the Moon!
Absolutely love hearing these audio outtakes, bloopers and raw audio from the cartoons of my youth! This show served as he loosely translated basis for the third love action movie, Dark of the Moon. Now you can hear extra audio from the classic voice actors who contributed.

No, not the popular garden flower, we're talking about the triple changing Horrorcon Snapdragon! It's unofficial, but for those that seek to fill the gap in Headmaster Decepticons - Third party producer "Keith's Fantasy Club" (never heard of them before) making the Masterpiece scaled Headmasters and MakeToys taking a turn w/ more cartoon styled Seekers.

Movie Masterpiece Optimus Prime: In-Hand Photos from Guangzhou Midnight Sales Event
At the event, additional features of the toy were revealed during a presentation which include:
- Movie Matrix which fits in Optimus' chest!
- Mechanism of face type swapping. See photos - it's similar to the very cool mechanism of Takara's Armor Knight Optimus Prime.
- One can also get a sense of scale from people holding the figure.

Special thanks to Hasbro for passing along the following images and info!

Had a chance to meet this cool dude, Mark Maher a few years ago at Botcon, where he told me about his background in graffiti art and how he applies these talents to provide decos for toys like Transformers! Check out this cool video showing some of the figures of yesteryear coming to life!
Bearing a striking resemblance to the CGI models seen onscreen in Transformers films, comes these... I'll be honest, I don't know what to call them, or what they are. They could be one-of-a-kind customs, could be **third party prototypes, statues, resin models, or (I wish!) upcoming official products. (Not likely but one can hope!). These to-scale items look perfect next to Leader Class Hasbro toys and include an incredible level of detail. Stay tuned, more info as it becomes available.
In case the robot mode version was not enough for your collecting needs, Soldierstory shows off its next coming attraction, another "lamp" (I think they get away with calling it a lamp because it has a has so many LEDs; apparently enough to light up a room!) -this version, however, comes in planet mode. No word yet on MSRP but if it's like the robot mode version, be prepared for another $800 price tag!

Day 1 of the Hasbro announced event includes a fun video of the classic original and modern day voice actor duo for Megatron & Optimus Prime. They show off a few new toys (Voice Changer helmets) and have some fun. So which side shall you choose, #Autobot or #Decepticon ??
Sadly we have virtually no reports of new toys showing up at retailers across the U.S. did you have any luck with your toy hunting?
