Visitors to China's "Green Dream Park" (located near the Olympic stadium) will soon be greeted by a gigantic statue of Autobot leader Optimus Prime! This statue is styled after the Movie Optimus Prime. You can read an article about the statue and see a photo on Gizmodo.com.
Activators are back! First introduced in the "Animated" toy line, this sub-line of Transformers is now part of the "Revenge of the Fallen" toy line. BWTF has reviewed its first Activator from this line: Bumblebee! You can read the review here.
This fine Thursday morning brings you a trio of reviews! First up is a redeco of Springer with a familiar color scheme: Duststorm. The next review is a new sculpt, based on the Constructicon Long Haul. Finally another redeco borrows a sculpt from the Universe 2.0 line: Sandstorm. Check each review out for photos and my thoughts on the figures.
Over the past few days, photos from a recent Chicago filming of a scene from "Transformers 3" have leaked online including images of the revamped Ratchet, convertable Sideswipe, "mystery" race cars (Stunticons?!) and Optimus Prime with a trailer based on his G1 trailer! Aintitcool has consolidated many of these images in this article. The video below was taken from the same shooting showing almost all the vehicles mentioned above.
Taking inspiration from the Generation One team of the same name, Bombshock leads a group of Drones that transform from various military vehicles to fearsome limbs for him in his Power Up mode! Check out my review of Bombshock with the Combaticon Drones!

You read right. Back in 2007 as the "Classics" toy line was winding down a small assortment of Legends Class redeco figures were released as new incarnations of several G1 characters. Among them was Bumblebee, a redeco of Cybertron Hot Shot. This piece was fairly limited so I am happy to be able to bring you a review. You can read this review in the Classics Toy Review section.
