Toy News: Official Masterpiece Bumblebee video

Hasbro designer manager John Warden and Takara designer Shogo Hasui have teamed up to produce a video focusing on the recent Toys R Us exclusive release of Masterpiece Bumblebee. The video features some fun G1 based green screen work with Warden standing "in" the Ark. I enjoy these fun videos and appreciate the effort that goes into them. Check it out in the embed below:

Collectible News: New Transformers Hallmark ornament and itty bittys coming in 2017

One of the mainstays at New York Comic-Con is Hallmark. While best known for greeting cards, the company has also become a creator of collectibles over the years in the form of both their ornaments and more recently their plush "itty bittys" line. At NYCC 2016 their booth displayed both an image (via a cardboard cutout) of the 2017 Christmas ornament: Soundwave! Like the three previous ornaments this will be modeled on the G1 action figure.
