Yolopark has posted photos of its upcoming "PLAMO" (aka Plastic Model Kit) Shockwave based on the character's appearance from the Bumblebee movie!

In this age of digital music, it is almost quaint to purchase any music on physical media. However many collectors dig having an album in a form they can hold in their hands and booklets they can go through as they listen to the music. Recognizing this, La La Records has posted orders for a limited edition run of the Bumblebee Movie Soundtrack. The soundtrack is limited to 2000 copies at a price of $19.98. You can check out the official product description and cover image below.
Fellow fan site TFW2005 has reported some new listings for the Studio Series line of movie based figures. There is a lot to absorb here as the line continues to expand beyond the traditional "Bayverse" characters. From the Bumblebee Movie fans can expect characters seen in the exciting opening scene on Cybertron including Brawn and Ratchet! Then on the other side we have more characters coming from the "1986" sub-line of Studio Series figures. These include Perceptor and a Junkion named Junkyard.

Ben's World of Transformers sponsor BigBadToyStore has put up a listing for an extraordinary Optimus Prime action figure by Yolopark.

The current asking price is $21,600 but the owner is open to offers if you want to give it a go!
