    User Powered Convoy of the Allspark has posted high resolution scans of the 202nd issue of Figure Ō magazine, in which we get a look at several Japanese Transformers items such as Q Transformers Wave 1, D-Style Megatron, Amazon Japan's exclusive AOE Hound Army Camo Ver., Playstation Optimus Prime, and Legends LG10 Arcee (Japanese release of Generations Thrilling 30 Arcee).

    Of significant note is an interview with TakaraTomy designer Hironori Kobayashi on the making of the Arcee toy, which has been translated into English by TFW2005 user SydneyY. To read this fascinating interview and see the scans, head through the space bridge.

    Rumors aplenty, rumors galore! Another rumor has turned up in regards to the Generations Combiner Wars line. But this time, said rumor comes from The Allspark, in which word has it that we might be getting Generations Combiner Wars toys for the Protectobots, and a few others as well.

    This information comes from a Walmart employee who did some digging in the computer system and uncovered listings for three new Legends and four new Deluxes. The Legends are listed as "Groove", "DPT Viper", and "Warpath". Groove and Warpath could be new molds for the G1 characters, while "DPT Viper" remains a mystery, but "DPT" could possibly stand for "Decepticon".
    The Deluxes are listed as "BLD", "Street", "First Aid", and "Protectobot Rook". "BLD" could be Blades, "Street" could be Streetwise/Streetsmart, First Aid is obvious, and Rook could be a new character like how Alpha Bravo and Offroad were for the Aerialbots and Stunticons, respectively.

    Keep in mind that this is a rumor, but head through the space bridge for the information.

    An anonymous computer-hackin'-Walmart-employee-Transformers-enthusiast posted a list of upcoming Generations toys in the combiner Wars line. This list adds fuel to the rumor mill fire that the next team to join the fray in 2015 shall be the Protectobots! Here's hopin'!

    We here at the Allspark have received some new information about future releases for the Transformers Generations Combiner Wars toy line. A Wal-Mart employee and computer sleuth (who has asked to remain anonymous) has dug into the retailer's inventory system and pulled out a few names that will definitely interest a few Transformers fans... Because it appears that the Protectobots will be the next Generation One gestalt team to join the Combiner Wars! [ 130 more words. ]

    Target.com has posted new official images of the last three figures in the Age of Extinction Power Battlers assortment. Junkheap is based on one of the KSI prototypes who turns into a Waste Management garbage truck. Vehicon is based on the Rally Fighters driven by Cemetery Wind (and is NOT one of the KSI robots). And High Octane Bumblebee is based on the first form of Bumblebee seen in the movie. All three are brand new molds. Through the space bridge for the pics.

    Last Saturday, the 57th episode of Transformers: Rescue Bots aired on Discovery Family. Titled "Unfinished Business", this episode provides an answer to a question that has long gone unanswered since the show's beginning: What mission was Rescue Force Sigma-17 carrying out before coming to Earth? After all this time, we get a look at just what the "routine patrol" that the theme song sings about involved. What were the Bots doing in space and did they accomplish their mission?

    Been awhile since we got an extensive look at Masterpiece MP-24 Star Saber. TF Yuki has Tweeted a bunch more of in hand images of the figure, in which we see that the figure can be converted into the same Base Mode as the 1989 Victory toy could convert into, and that his sword, the Saber Blade, appears to be not simply painted shiny but possibly (and beautifully) CHROME painted!

    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.

    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 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.

    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!

    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.
