Auto Assembly 2014 is the premiere UK Transformers convention, and it's happening next weekend! Full Metal Hero reports that IDW artist Nick Roche will be on hand, selling prints of sketches of the More Than Meets The Eye Season 2 crew, as well as the Lost Light crew Holoavatars seen in Season 1's field trip to Hedonia. Also, colorist Josh Burcham has contributed design for a "Dinoband" tshirt to be sold at the con. Apparently musical Transformers is a theme this year! Keep reading for mirrored images of all three.
Age of Extinction
Age of Extinction has done pretty well for Michael Bay, both here and especially in China. The Wrap reports that Paramount Pictures has decided to extend their first-refusal contract with Bay and his Platinum Dune production company, and even extend it to his other production company, Bay Films. This doesn't guarantee that he'll be the one to direct the next Transformers film, but it sure makes it seem more likely. Keep reading for all the details!

Generation 1
Alongside clear Optimus Primal, a loose G2 Groove has been listed on Ebay from the same seller who sold a near-complete G2 Stunticon set recently. Though Groove's intended existence in G2 has been documented before, the high-res photos with this auction may be the best look most people will ever get at this toy. The seller also notes he has a G2 Blades to be sold soon, but no other Protectobots, unfortunately. Keep reading to see all the images of the delightfully orange figure!
Beast Wars
One particular Ebay seller has been liquidating a large number of unreleased product samples and test shots for several weeks. While most are well-documented items and not especially notable, this one really caught our eye. Transmetal Optimus is presented in full packaging, but in colorless clear plastic and of course no chrome. Whether this was a typical test shot piece or possibly had another intent behind it, it definitely stands out ...by being almost invisible! Keep reading to see the pictures!
Age of Extinction
Transformers Colombia next brings us more stock photography for the Autobots United five pack. The Big Bad Toy Store exclusive set features the main Autobot cast from the movie with more detailed paint applications, and another appearance of the faceplated head sculpt for Evasion Mode Optimus. Keep reading to see all the mirrored images.
Age of Extinction
Transformers Colombia gives us a few additional stock photos showing the Breakout Battle set, with "Rusty" Optimus Prime, Rollbar, and "Vehicon", a minor redeco of DOTM Crankcase. This depicts the farm escape scene ...ish, using offscreen characters based around non-Transformer vehicles that appeared in the film. Check out all the images below!
Age of Extinction
"The infamous Transformers Colombia strikes again!" Following the official announcement a short time ago of Big Bad Toy Store's Platinum Edition Age of Extinction exclusive multi packs, Transformers Colombia has dug up more official stock photography for some of the toys in question. First up we see more views of Optimus with Trailer and Sideswipe featuring an even more chromed First Edition Optimus, red movie Sideswipe, and G1 style trailer. Keep reading and check out all the images!
Age of Extinction
Joel just let us know they got the go ahead to release new images of some new Transformers Age of Extinction BBTS shared exclusives! BBTS will carry all items pictured and they plan to offer all items at official MSRP - ordering available at a later date. This is an informational update only. Preorder date and pricing will be disclosed at a later date. Read on to see the images of the exclusive figures sets.
 
Collectors Club
Here comes Lio Convoy as the 2015 FREE Transformers Collectors' Club Membership Incentive Figure! This one appears to be a remake of the Generations Orion Pax mold that will have a new paint job ala the Beast Wars Japan character. No word if its a new head or not. Read on to see the character art showing off the concept for the figure.
Generations
The preorder for Generations Leader Jetfire is up at Amazon! He's scheduled for release on September 15th, and is priced at $44.99 with eligibility for free super-saver shipping. Keep reading for the preorder link!
Age of Extinction
The Targets in Orange Country are stocking the remote controlled Transformers Age of Extinction Optimus Prime figures. The motorized toy is ready to roll-out with auto-transforming from vehicle to robot mode. They are selling for $49.99 USD. Read on to see the item on the shelf for more details.
Generation 1 Japan
Autobase Aichi has posted images from a giveaway DVD in Terebi-Kun magazine (More or less "TV Magazine Junior") that show the QTransformers with a selection of Lost Age/Age of Extinction characters, plus G1 Sideswipe and Prowl! The images also suggest animation is on the way, and features Japanese versions of the How To Ride Your Dinobot shorts. Similar in style to the old Choro-Q toys, QTransformers (or Cute Transformers if you prefer) are little SD mini-cars that turn in to various characters. Click through for a tweaked mechanical translation, mirrored photos, and links!
Generation 1 Japan
If you're in Japan between August 9th and 17th you may want to check out the Transformers Expo, the TakaraTomy-run event celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Transformers brand. A map of the expo has just been published, giving hints at what you'll see where. Interestingly there's a silhouette of movie Megatron's head in the section describing the "Megatron area"- has Movie Optimus Prime donated a trophy for the event? Keep reading for all the details!
Generations
eHobby has once again updated the impenetrable text story that accompanies Transformers Cloud, along with a new illustration - at least most of us can get something out of that. The image shows Shockwave and War/Fall For/Of Cybertron/Cybertron Soundwave charging Rodimus and Classics Optimus Prime, with Laserbeak in the foreground. Interestingly, the Decepticons seem to be coming through a Prime-style ground bridge... keep reading to see the picture for yourself and to check out the original page!
Generation 1 Japan
Remember when video game consoles used to actually come with a game? TakaraTomy remembers. Mega Drive Megatron is going to include a replica of the Japanese version of the Sonic the Hedgehog cartridge from 1991. The Japanese version of Sonic is slightly more refined than the US Sega Genesis release, with more parallax scrolling and a rippling effect underwater. None of which matters, since this is a non-playable dummy cart to make your Megatron look cool. Keep reading to see the blast processing for yourself!
Generations
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Not much this week just HUGE news from SDCC and Wonder Fest! Combiners, Titan Class Scorponok, Transforming pens, Playstations that turn into Optimus Prime, questionable third party gimmicks, combining NOT Dinobots, Q&A with Rob Springer, we test our listeners and our crew with a Transformers trivia presentation Brian put together for a local con. All this and way, way, way more!
