Comics and media news website Comics Alliance has produced a number of lists of Best.. of 2013 items, including comic book covers and toys. Our favourite transforming robots take their place in two of them: Best Toys of 2013 and 2013 Holiday Gift Guide! Click on the links for the full features, and take a look below at what they have to say about Generations Metroplex and Masterpiece Soundwave.

Transformers News: Transformers Feature Twice in Comics Alliance's Best of 2013


When writing up our “Best Toys of 2013” list we were torn between giving the title to Hasbro/Takara’s humongous Metroplex or the equally awesome Masterpiece Soundwave. It was a tough call, so you’ll have to forgive us for relegating Soundwave’s current ultimate figure to the Gift Guide. Think of the inclusion of Soundwave and his compatible team of transforming cassette tape robots (Laserbeak, Ravage, Rumble, Buzzsaw and Frenzy) here as a plug for the best Transformer you can buy someone this year… that’s shorter than 2 feet tall. Good luck finding one for its approximate $120 retail, however, as this SDCC 2013 debut/Toys “R” Us exclusive figure is now going for closer to $200 and higher online. One alternative is the less accessorized Takara version from Japan, or you can just bite the Energon cube and splurge for your favorite Transformer fan.

After seeing it up close at Toy Fair and going hands-on with Hasbro’s massive San Diego Comic-Con 2013 exclusive version of Metroplex, CA can assure any fans on the fence about picking up the $125 retail version that it is, indeed, as substantial as it looks. At roughly 24.5″ tall in robot mode, Metroplex appropriately towers over every other Transformer EVER. Sure, he’s not in perfect scale with Hasbro and Takara’s more pocket-sized robots in disguise, but considering a 1:1 Metroplex would probably take up a full city block, this toy is about as good as it gets. Metroplex has a sturdy build despite its proportions and transforming it from a robotic warrior to two styles of battle station/cityscape is a relative snap. If anything, applying its dozens of decals is the most strenuous part of playing with Metroplex, but the stickers are still a nice bonus even if you’re as bad as popping them on as a certain CA Senior Editor.

YouTube reporter Atamaii has uploaded a video from the Tokyo Toy Fair that gives us a good look at Takara Tomy TG-23 Metroplex. Among other things confirms that the figure will come with two guns, rather than just the one like the Hasbro version, a chrome face and slightly different paint apps. The video also claims that this version is the same as the exclusive Comic Con one. Is this also the SDCC version?

Take a look at the embedded video, and discuss it below!

This is for all the UK fans out there (or disgruntled Brits, as we call ourselves): Hasbro and Bite Global are partnering up this summer to take the Optimus Prime truck on tour around the country, in order to promote the Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters series and line. Read the following press release for more information!

The Hunt is On - Transformers Prime Beast Hunters UK Tour


THE HUNT IS ON: TRANSFORMERS PRIME BEAST HUNTERS TOUR HITS THE UK
“A new fearsome faction of TRANSFORMERS beasts has arrived on earth to threaten the AUOTBOTS, who must now evolve into BEAST HUNTERS to fight them…”


To celebrate the launch of the new TRANSFORMERS PRIME BEAST HUNTERS, the OPTIMUS PRIME truck is embarking on a UK tour where fans will get the chance to ‘choose their side’ and discover the new range.

Based on the third season of the Emmy Award-winning animated series TRANSFORMERS PRIME, TRANSFORMERS PRIME BEAST HUNTERS, the AUTOBOTS face off against both the DECEPTICONS and an unprecedented new foe: the dragon-like PREDACONS, led by the spectacular PREDAKING character! Hasbro’s 2013 TRANSFORMERS PRIME product line will be based on the new BEAST HUNTERS story and will feature many of the new PREDACON characters as well as new designs for favourite characters like OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE and more.

Accompanying the replica of the AUTOBOTS leader will be an interactive TRANSFORMERS Station that will showcase the new range of BEAST HUNTERS toys alongside viewings of the thrilling new DVD series TRANSFORMERS PRIME, digital play areas and the opportunity for fans to have a customisable picture taken with OPTIMUS PRIME and the new BEAST HUNTERS against a green screen.

The OPTIMUS PRIME truck and TRANSFORMERS Station will be at the following events this Summer:
Royal Highland Show, Edinburgh: 20th-23rd June
Fairford Airshow, Swindon: 20th-21st July
Sunderland Airshow: 27th-28th July
Bristol Airshow: 8th-11th August
Lollibop, London: 16th-18th August
Bournemouth Show: 29th August-1st September

With the same press release, another piece of information has been revealed, concerning the release of what appears to be series three of Transformers Prime (though confusingly named Series One).

Also coming this Summer is the new TRANSFORMERS PRIME: SERIES ONE – DECEPTICONS UNLEASHED on DVD. The latest series sees the Transformers face their toughest challenge yet in their quest to save OPTIMUS PRIME - a must-see for any Transformers fan! The DVD is available at all major retailers and via digital download from June 24th, priced at £10.99.
