    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.

    Whirl's long lost buddy! Now if only this guy would show up in MTMTE Comics (like he just did in my local Target) then my interest level would go from moderate, to through-the-roof level!

    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 ("Yūki 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.

    The upcoming Angry Birds Transformers line, which has thus far been met with mixed feelings by the fandom, has just gotten more interesting, for Rovio Entertainment has posted a new trailer for the line done in a retro cartoon animation style similar to that of cartoons from the 1980's, like the G1 Transformers cartoon. This trailer even includes some little extra touches like actually having its music done by Vince DiCola (who scored the 1986 Transformers movie), and even including little video glitches often associated with VHS tapes!

    TF Yuki has Tweeted an image of the new Million Publishing exclusive Generations Shouki revealing its secret fourth mode: a Gun Mode. A redeco of the Classics Astrotrain mold, Shouki is the leader of the Trainbots, an Autobot combiner team first made available in 1987 only in Japan. Here's though, as a redeco of Astrotrain, he contains not only his original Bullet Train mode, but also a Space Shuttle mode that is decoed with this figure to be a homage to the Decepticon warship known as the Thunder Arrow from Transformers: Victory, which Shouki has gone undercover as.

    With this newly made Gun Mode, however, Shouki now has a grand total of four modes. Through the space bridge for the image.

    Attention fans of Transformers Animated! Have we got a treat or you! For Amazon.com has posted a preorder for a new book titled Transformers Animated: The Complete AllSpark Almanac! That's right, the "COMPLETE" AllSpark Almanac!

    What is the AllSpark Almanac? Simply put, it is the biggest lover letter to the show's fans and the greater Transformers mythos and fandom as a whole, spread across two glorious volumes. Infobooks, to be precise. Anyone who's a fan of this show simply MUST get their hands of these two books, and now there's a second chance for you to get them both in one go, for this "Complete" edition is said to contain both of the previous two Almanacs. Whether you missed out on them before or have been wanting to repurchase them, this is the best way to do so.

    However, the foreseeable future currently show no signs of this compiled version containing either the Addendums that were published in the Transformers Collectors Club media, or any brand new material made exclusively for this release. But, the future is unpredictable, so it's always possible for either the Addendums or new stuff to be put into this.

    Tag Hobby has posted scans from the latest issue of Dengeki Hobby magazine showing the newest images of the prototype of Masterpiece Star Saber. These images highlight a TON of features included in this figure, such as his Brainmaster gimmick, his "Battle Up!" transformation, missile pods in spaceship mode, articulated antennae, his arm articulation, and even the shield from the final episode of Transformers: Victory.

    Also pictured are some officially licensed non-transforming items from other companies, such as the ES Gokin Convoy and ES Gokin Rodimus Convoy from Art Storm, the D-Style Optimus Prime model kit from Kotobukiya, and MegaZarak and BlackZarak from Sentinel Co. Ltd. Through the space bridge for the pics.

    The Transformers© Official YouTube Channel has posted the first official commercial for the Transformers: Hero Mashers line. A line built entirely around a play pattern of mix-and-match interchangeability, Hero Mashers' first commercial highlights this feature exceptionally. Megatron's up to no good as usual, but Optimus, Bumblebee, and Grimlock all come along to confuse and utterly humiliate Megatron in one of the most embarrassing yet quite humorous and good-natured displays of combat ever seen.

    Twitter user Das Hurst has posted the first images of the fourth wave of Transformers Cloud toys. This line has been no stranger to some pretty unusual, even crazy, redeco ideas, but these next two really take the cake!

    TFC-D04 is Hellwarp, a redeco of Generations Sky-Byte in Skywarp colors. The name "Hellwarp" is likely a homage to the Beast Wars II iteration of Starscream who upgraded into a robotic shark form called "Hellscream", with this figure likewise replacing the first part of the Seeker name with "Hell" while retaining the name's second part, giving us "Hellwarp".

    TFC-A04 is Roadbuster, a redeco of Generations Roadbuster in the colors of Energon Ironhide, who was named "Roadbuster" in Transformers: Super Link, the Japanese version of Energon. Through the space bridge for the pics.

    The Diamond Edition of the BotCon 2014 comic, Transformers Timelines #10 "Hoist the Flag", has been solicited, revealing its new cover artwork by Marcelo Matere. Part of the convention's theme of "Pirates vs. Knights", this comic tells of Captain Cannonball and his pirate crew of Star Seekers who attempt to pull off their biggest heist yet, all while opposed by a brave order of Cybertronian Knights who stand in their way. The new cover art is based on the poster artwork for the original 1986 Transformers movie, which was also previously homaged in the poster artwork for BotCon 2000's "Reaching the Omega Point" epic, making this the second BotCon-based homage to that poster art.

Now, both have been remade into newer versions of themselves for IDW's G1 comics. Through the space bridge for the pics.
