    To those looking to buy the upcoming Masterpiece MP-23 Exhaust figure, you may want to try purchasing it from a non-U.S.-based retailer, for Big Bad Toy Store recently sent out an email declaring there to be some legal issues prohibiting them from selling the figure to consumers in the United States. The issues refer to a conflict with Marlboro's parent company Phillip Morris USA, as well as with the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement. As such, Big Bad Toy Store has canceled all preorders of Masterpiece Exhaust until further notice. All the concerns can be found expressed in full detail within the email, which can be found beyond the space bridge.

    Recently, media distributor iTunes had removed the score for the Transformers: Age of Extinction movie from its library, making it no longer available to purchase. Composer Steve Jablonsky was notified of this and has posted on his Facebook a rather lengthy explanation regarding the score's removal. To view the whole story and get a better understanding of what went on to lead to the score's removal, head through the space bridge.

    Though there still remains no word of a Hasbro release of Masterpiece Ultra Magnus in the West, it looks like the figure will at least see a release by Hasbro Asia! Artist Kelvin Chan has posted to his Facebook artwork for toy that Hasbro had commissioned him to do for the Hong Kong and Australian release of the figure. The artwork looks very different from the style of Masterpiece box designs that Hasbro has adopted for its Masterpiece releases, and seems to indicate that this is merely a straight release of the Takara version of the toy in new packaging.

    Chan notes that the figure will be a Toys "R" Us exclusive and will hit Hong Kong markets on December 27, and later hit Australia in April 2015. Australian retail price will be $299.99 AUD (roughly $260.72 USD). Through the space bridge for the artwork.

    The "Combiner Wars" hype machine continues to roll on via Hasbro's Transformers Facebook page... Here's hoping these 2015 toys make an early appearance for the holiday shopping season!

    The rumormill keeps on churning. This one comes from both ACToys and RobotKingdom, who report the possibility of the next Masterpiece after Star Saber, MP-25, being a new Megatron toy, like how MP-10 Convoy was to MP-1 Convoy.

    As it is a rumor, we know nothing of what it might look like or even it is true, but should it prove real, then we can expect it to be a vast improvement over the MP-5 mold and scaled down to better size with MP-10 and other Masterpieces of that size. Through the space bridge for all that is known of the rumor.

    This past Saturday, the 56th episode of Transformers: Rescue Bots aired on Discovery Family. Titled "Phantom of the Sea", the Team investigates legend about a ghost ship that appears out at sea once every ten years. During their investigation, they come to find that the supposedly "legendary" ship is more real than they anticipated, but this Team is no stranger to uncovering the reality of such unfathomable phenomena. What is the secret of this "phantom" vessel, and does it spell doom for Griffin Rock? Head through the space bridge to find out.

    Ah, another day, another rumor. Like the Generations Leader class Ultra Magnus rumor, this new one comes from TFW2005. Two users on that site have brought to our attention a rumored existence of what might possibly be a Generations Titan class Devastator giftset comprised of six Voyager class figures.

    If you're still breathing after having just read that, there is some credibility behind each of these users. One of them is jru42287, who was the person responsible for uncovering the first image of Hasbro's Masterpiece Sunstorm. He first reported this news after having found it in Toys "R" Us's computer system. The other guy is Venksta, who has contributed to such entities as Renderform and Shapeways, the latter of which recently teamed up with Hasbro for some projects. He has reaffirmed the first user's initial reports.

    As this is a RUMOR, take this with a GRAIN OF SALT, for we know nothing of what this might look like or if it's even real. But head through the space bridge for all the known info on the rumor.

    Confirmed via a Twitter correspondence between story editor Nicole Dubuc and Transformers expert Chris McFeely, Transformers: Rescue Bots will have 26 episodes in its third season, making it officially the second-longest Transformers cartoon in terms of episode count, at a total of 78 episodes counting the two unaired season 2 episodes and the entirety of season 3. This also makes it longer that Transformers: Prime's count of 65 episodes (or 68 if you count when Predacons Rising was rerun split into three episodes). And should it get a fourth season of the same length, it would then overtake the 98-episode Generation 1 cartoon as being the longest Transformers cartoon ever!

    Amazon has lowered the price of their Transformers: Age of Extinction Limited Edition Gift Set with Grimlock and Optimus Collectible Statue [Blu-ray] by a huge margin! Originally listed at $119.99, Amazon has cut the price down by 75% to a mere $29.99!

    The set contains the Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital HD release of the movie, along with an exclusive statue of Grimlock being ridden by Optimus, as depicted in the film. If you've been on the fence about getting this set, go here to get it while the price is right!

    Big Bad Toy Store has posted the first images of the new Rescue Bots Rescan figures to come in 2015. Pictured with them are the Rescan figures of Chase (now a police SUV) and Boulder (now a dump truck) that are slated to come out this year (finding them by the year's end is no small feat, however).

    The two new figures for 2015 are a brand new character named Salvage, who turns into a garbage truck (and who sadly very likely won't be showing up in the cartoon like Hoist and Medix didn't), and an all new mold for Optimus Prime that's based on his very first large-sized Rescue Bots figure.

    Through the space bridge for the pics.

    Previously, we saw listings for TakaraTomy's Japanese version of the upcoming Robots in Disguise toyline, in which there were several toys and characters included in those listings that were also absent from any and all reports of Hasbro's version of the toyline. Now, Anime-Export has posted several preorders for the Japanese RID toys, in which preliminary images for these toys reveal new information about the extra figures that Takara is adding to the line. Like the Movie Advanced Series, a few of these are rereleases of figures from older lines in an attempt to bulk out the line and make it bigger. Though, several of them also happen to be figures that Japan hasn't gotten before. To see what all of these toys are, head through the space bridge.

    TF Yuki has been quite busy lately Tweeting away several in hand images of many new toys from TakaraTomy, all hailing from the Legends toyline and the Masterpiece toyline. Several of these include Rattle, Whirl, Roadbuster, Tankor, Brainstorm, and of course MP-24 Star Saber. To see them all, head through the space bridge.

    Speaking of cool Transformers comics goodies, the latest 'can't-miss' issue of James Roberts' More than Meets the Eye - #34 preview available here...) hit shelves last week. (Be sure to check it out if you haven't already!) Along with its release, MTMTE artist Alex Milne has updated his twitter page with images of newly introduced characters (not Sigmund) Froid and Terminus. Great designs for some very creative new characters.

    ComicBookResources has posted an interview with IDW comics author Shane McCarthy on the upcoming Drift Mini-series. IN the interview Shane talks about his thoughts on the new series as well as his thoughts on how the drift character was handled on the live action movies...

    "Drift: Empire of Stone," a four-issue mini-series from IDW Publishing with artist Guido Guidi. As a former Decepticon who found sanctuary with the Autobots, Drift is currently on a journey of self-discovery, attempting to discover his place in the Galaxy. Along with Autobot medic Ratchet, who is along for the ride to help clear Drift's name from a wrongful accusation, Drift will go through what McCarthy describes as "buddy cop meets space adventure."

    Great news, Takara is releasing deluxe Stinger figure as part of the Movie Advanced line! While it would be cool if he had his own Pagani Huayra car mode. Of course he is a recolor of deluxe Bumblebee, but we'll take what we can get.

    This past Saturday, the third season of the Transformers: Rescue Bots cartoon premiered on Discovery Family with its 53rd and 54th episodes. titled "Land Before Prime" and "Big Game", respectively, these episodes introduced a slew of new things. We got Optimus Prime becoming a T-Rex, the beginning of the dinosaur altmodes for the other Rescue Bots, and even a brand new antagonist character.

    However, it seems that Hasbro has really cracked down on making sure that this series is viewed in the most legit ways possible, as the only online streaming versions of the episodes to be found are from non-YouTube sources. Thus, for these Season 3 episode discussion threads, it looks like we'll either have to go back to the old-fashioned style of discussing them as we watch them on TV (which hasn't been done since the days of TF: Cybertron, back in the pre-YouTube era), or settle for sites that aren't as friendly as YouTube. So let's plop down in front of our TV sets and head through the space bridge to discuss the episodes.

    The Asian market release of Masterpiece MP-5G Megatron Gold Ver. is coming up soon, and it is sure to be a golden one. A redeco of MP-5, MP-5G Megatron Gold Ver. replaces most of the figure's silver with gold, and Instagram user Optibotimus has posted some in hand images of the figure in advance of its release.

    Plus, Transformers Asia has revealed that the figure will come with an exclusive bonus accessory! Like the reissues of MP-8X King Grimlock (who came with a throne) and MP-10 Convoy (who will come with Vector Sigma), MP-5G Megatron Gold Ver. will come with a fully diecast mini-sized Reflector in camera mode, free with the purchase of the figure from select stores.

    IGN is reporting that Michael Bay has supposed confirmed that he will not return to direct the fifth live-action Transformers film. Unlike the last few films where he said he wasn't coming back, then did an abrupt 180 and taken the helm of TF 3 and 4... This go around, he is apparently opting for a Benghazi-based, novel adaptation called 13 hours, and will let someone else take over.

    If this proves to be true, then who would you like to see in the next Director's Chair for the Transformers franchise?
