Transformers News and Reviews
Age of Extinction
Following a tease in the hobby magazine earlier this week, TakaraTomy has revealed full details on Micron Carnivac. Recolored (yet again) from one of the Transformers: Cybertron Mini-Cons, Carnivac would likely be intended as a stand in for Lockdown's wolf-like cyborgs that menaced the human props in Age of Extinction. The Micron will be available at Toys R Us locations in Japan with the purchase of 3000 Yen or more worth of Transformers products during the campaign period. Keep reading to check out the up close image!
Age of Extinction
TakaraTomy's website has been updated with an image and information about the upcoming release of Black Knight Strafe. Following on from Grimlock, Slug, and Scorn before, Strafe is being redecoed in a black-heavy look and will be available via Cybertron Satellite locations throughout Japan. Starting in December, this figure will be available for 3200 Yen, but of course will cost quite a bit more for those of us who must rely on middlemen and secondary retailers! Click through to see the full image.
Legends
Thanks to Planet Iacon who have posted some new out of box images of the Takara Tomy LG-02 Legend Optimus Primal action figure. Get a look at the Japan exclusive release that is a remake of the Beast Wars Reborn figure mold. Read on to see the image of the figure in and out of the box.
MasterPiece
The Meteor Operation Facebook has posted images of a set of licensed stickers by Ocean for MP Prowl and Wheeljack. These stickers bring the figures' deco in line with the G1/Diaclone toys- even the tires! In Wheeljack's case this means a lot of sponsor logos... which makes us wonder if Ocean also got the blessing of groups like Heuer, AlItalia, and Marlboro. Either way, keep reading to see the photos!

Generations
IDW's official Tumblr has released images of Sarah Stone's subscription covers for Transformers Primacy #3 and #4. Since her IDW premiere on the Windblade comic earlier this year, Stone has consistently been an artistic bright spot wherever IDW has seen fit to include her. And as a reminder: if you haven't picked up your copy yet, Primacy #3 is out this week! Keep reading to see the covers!
Legends
The official TakaraTomy Transformers Twitter has posted images of Transformers Legends Rattrap and Optimus Primal in-package, along with a quick cartoon informing us that Legends Rattle/Rattrap has now sold out. In addition, Legends package artist Yuki Ohshima posted some in and out of package images of Optimus Primal on his Twitter. Keep reading to see the images!
MasterPiece
ACToys user dlarirang has posted images of MP-21 Bumblebee! Shorter than Deluxe Generations Crosscut, yet doubtless more complex, the long-awaited Masterpiece figure looks pretty good in his licensed VW Bug mode. Keep reading to see the photos!
Generation 1
Via their Twitter, The Loyal Subjects have teased the existence of a vinyl based on G1 Jetfire. While little specific detail is given along with it, a fan's drawing noting itself as a wave 4 prediction was included, which TLS's Twitter representative acknowledged as being on to something. If this is our first look at a piece from wave 4, Jetfire would be in a very early state of production, leaving the odd hole in the side as either a by-product of that, or perhaps a feature yet to be revealed. Check out the original tweet and full image below!
Generations
Figure King Magazine came out this week and as we reported previously featured the upcoming Legends (TakaraTomy Generations) releases of Windblade, Chromia and Arcee. In this feature, it was revealed that one of the designers on the TakaraTomy side that contributed to Arcee was Hironori Kobayashi. Some may recognize this name in connection with various toys including Masterpieces, but when it comes to Arcee there's a bit more to the story. Keep reading to find out the secret behind Arcee's creation!
Age of Extinction
The official Transformers Facebook page has posted a selection of concept art images for various Age of Extinction characters. Representing about half of the main characters of the movie plus a Vehicon body design, this gives a detailed look at several of the character models that would go through additional refinements before being fully produced for visual effects in the movie. To check out all the images, click through and keep reading!
 
Third Party
Recently disovered in the background art on the Play With This Too web site by fans, there are images of a Landmine homage character. When this was posted on message boards Rik Alvarez of PWTT commented "Finally somebody found one of our easter eggs. We pepper them throughout most of our announcements..." The figure seems to be a combination of parts seen on the Play With This Too figure Astroblast and Deep Earth Explorer, as well as original parts. You can see the sword and smaller/inner robot images that look like Landmind in these enhanced background photos.
Rescue Bots
Returning for an action-packed third season of new adventures is "Transformers Rescue Bots," the animated series created for younger TRANSFORMERS fans, on Saturday, November 1, with two back-to-back episodes at 1 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. ET/10 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. PT, on Discovery Family Channel. The series is produced by Hasbro Studios.
MasterPiece
Planet Iacon has posted an image of MP-05G Megatron still in his plastic tray, but it's the best and clearest image of the Asia-exclusive version of Megatron we've yet seen. All of the original accessories are still here, including the Optimus Prime Murder Weapon Accessory Set of a Beam Dagger and Pistol -and also Kremzeek! Keep reading to see the image!
Legends
It's that time of the month again. TAG Hobby has released scans from Figure Oh (Figure King) magazine showing a variety of new photos of upcoming Japanese Legends and Lost Age EX (Generations Deluxe) figures! Most notable are better images of Legends Arcee, whose G1 paint job is looking a fair bit better than Hasbro's version. Keep reading for the photos, and more details!
Generation 1
Singapore fan group Planet Iacon posted a link to a Vine showing the transformation of Mega Drive Megatron, the figure that combines the Decepticon leader quite appropriately with the Sega Genesis' Blast Processing. It's a simple affair, just as you'd likely expect from a rectangle. But a really nice looking rectangle! Keep reading to see for yourself!
Generation 1

Third Party
DX9 Toys have posted new photos of final colors samples of their D04 Armor Kit, designed to give Age of Extinction's Evasion Mode Optimus a new look. Taking cues from the Apex Armor (or Godbomber for the Masterforce purists), the set gives Optimus extra armor, weapons and wings and massively changes the look of the original toy. Advertised as suitable for both Hasbro and Takara's standard releases, this set is turning a lot of head. It's expected to be available very soon. Keep reading to see all the photos!
