Ben's World of Transformers has received a press release and album cover art for "Transformers Roll Out", a rock music collection inspired by the "Transformers"! Here is the official release:
Japanese retailer E-Hobby has updated their site with a new listing for "Unite Warriors" Bruticus! This listing gives us our first clear, color images of the individual Combaticons (blurrier pictures surfaced this past weekend). The description focuses on the changes made to the set from their "Combiner Wars" incarnations, focusing on cartoon accurate decos and details such as Vortex having four rotors instead of two.

It's been a while since we've heard much from the "Angry Birds Transformers" front. The toys were seemingly cancelled (with at least four figures left unreleased) yet the game itself has continued to thrive with several updates. In the current campaign "Angry Birds" celebrates Chinese New Year with a new version of Optimus: Epic Optimus! Check out the Tweet embedded below.
TFW2005 has posted several photos from Wonder Fest in Japan showing off upcoming "Transformers" product. Two of the most exciting photos are a color prototype of Masterpiece Optimus Primal and Unite Warriors Blast Off! Two two pics attached are from TFW2005, check out their news post for more!
Brawl has a terrible temper even by Decepticon standards. Fortunately for him he has the power to back that up in robot or tank mode. When the Autobot forces are overwhelming, he combines with his fellow Combaticons to form the giant Bruticus! Today's review takes a look at "Combiner Wars" Brawl!
Thanks to Sam Fulton of the Edmonton TF group (by way of the Transmasters Facebook group) we have photos and news of the first North American release of the Platinum Edition "Junkion" set (featuring Hot Rod, Wreck-Gar and a Junkion) and Optimus Primal, a redeco of the "Air Attack Optimus Primal" figure from 2001. The prices on the items are $109.99 CAD (about $80 USD) for the Junkion set and $200.00 CAD (about $145 USD).
Bumblebee has taken on the mantle of leadership on Earth but that doesn't mean he doesn't still have a unique sense of style as he adopts a new paint job including cool flames on the sides in vehicle mode! Check out my review of Night Strike Bumblebee.
Dispatched to Earth by Primus himself, Windblade has been given her special abilities to carry out her mission: find the Decepticons and stop them! With her ability to create powerful blasts of wind and a sharp sword, Windblade is one dangerous Autobot. Check out my review of Legion Class Windblade from "Robots in Disguise"!
Scattershot's combat style is very simple: charge into a pile of enemies and don't stop shooting and hitting until they are all scrap! When called upon he can combine with various combinations of Combiner limbs to form Betatron and duke it out Combiner style. Today's review brings you a look at "Combiner Wars" Scattershot!
Clampdown is not the bravest Decepticon around. In fact he's basically a coward who will do whatever it takes to profit while not getting into direct conflict. While he calls himself a Decepticon, he's more than happy to sell out anyone to protect himself! Check out my review of this weird and wacky Decepticon.
