On this first night of San Diego Comic Con, we bring to you some of the first news to come out of the Con. 3A has partnered with Hasbro to create a whole new Generation 1 line of Transformers statues, and they are starting off with none other than our great leader, Optimus Prime!
Prime is a new take on the design, using his original cartoon design as a skeleton but adding some new design flares to make him eye catching and different. He also comes with many different parts to attach on, such as his wheels in case you like him with the visible wheels, blaster, trusty old Megatron slashing axe, Ion blaster, Matrix and more! Also included is some die cast construction and some LED lights.
This statue will be standing a proud 16 inches tall and already has the planned repaints into the White Prime AKA Ultra Magnus, and he also has a Nemesis Prime redeco in the works! All 3 of these statues will be available in the 3rd quarter of 2016 for pre-order. You can check out the whole article on 3A's Website, and we have mirrored below the sketch phase, gray model phase, and final product for you to check out!
Seibertronians, we've got a new review for you! This time it's of the new Takara Unite Warriors Blast Off figure, straight from Seibertronian Chuckdawg1999!
This is the from-scratch figure included in Takara's Unite Warriors Bruticus box set. Check out Chuckdawg's review and comments down below, and make sure to check out Seibretron's gallery of the Hasbro version here!.
Does this review change your mind on the Takara Bruticus set? Will you be getting it, or the Hasbro version? Tell us in the comments below!
And, as always keep it tuned right here, on Seibertron.com, for the latest and greatest Transformers news!
Leave it to Takara to step up and provide a figure most fans want. Blast Off is an all new mold that completes a vintage style Combaticon team. Transformation is smooth and features the best weapon integration I've seen thus far. If you waited to get the Combaticons like I did, this figure, and the set, is worth the pick up.

Prime 1 Studios is at it again folks. Taking to Instagram and deciding to make your Dark of the Moon shelves a little more purple and sinister, they have teased their upcoming Dark of the Moon Shockwave statue. These teasers are all in gray save for some red flaring up in his optic and some spots on his back. Check out the images below and let us know what you think of this upcoming Purple People Smasher in the comments section below.
Fellow Seibertronians, we have some more TakaraTomy news, especially for those of you who are fans of the "Arms Micron" line. They announced recently via their website that there will be two new Arms Micron variants, available through a promotion. One a redeco of Prime Arms Micron Dago now called "Micron Ink" and the other a redeco of Prime Arms Micron Zori, now called "Micron Sting".
Ink will be included, starting today, in Japanese Toys R Us Transformer purchases more than 3000 yen.
Sting, however, will be available at these retailers, beginning on the 21st:
Aeon Sapporo Hiraoka
Aeon Style Mito Uchihara
Aeon Style Lake Town
Hakuhinkan Toy Park Ginza
UPDATE! We now have an additional image of Micron Ink from TFYuki's twitter! The new image below shows Ink in his weapon ("Arms") mode, being weilded by what appears to be a G2 Convoy!
Check out the images below and tell us in the comments: Will you be getting these new promotional variants? Do you like them more or less than the original decos? And, as always, your best place for Takara and Hasbro Transformers news is right here, on Seibertron.com
Fellow Seibertronian and newly-Canadian Transformers fan Transformermegazord/Benscollectables has shared with us a look in both photographic and video formats at the officially licensed ThreeA Dark of the Moon Optimus Prime statuette - in its very large, very poseable, very movie self. Check it out below, and take a look at Ben's photo album here, too!
We had reported that Hallmark was releasing a new Trasformers G1 Grimlock ornament, and now we have news that it is released. Both Seibertronians crazyfist and xrotorstormx reported getting these. Crazyfist reported that it was released this past week-end. Here is his quote below followed by images from these two Seibertronians.
To those that might be looking for the G1 Grimlock Hallmark Keepsake Christmas Ornament, it was released this past weekend. July 9th-10th saw the release online and in stores. I got mine in Winston-Salem, NC for $15.95 plus tax. Start Christmas early…ha ha!
Seibertronians, we've got something interesting for you, courtesy of our own ScottyP. While everyone's looking towards Amazon today, I'd like to re-direct your attention for a moment to Ebay. A user there by the name of protoprimex, a seller who seems to mainly deal in Transformers, listed this, a Transformers RPM Bumblebee in a new deco that was exclusive to the Hasbro Employees of 2009, up for sale.
We assume this was for a holiday promotion within the company, due to the winter-themed printing on the backing card. It also potentially lists out the departments this exclusive bug was sent to, or the subject matter the company worked on that year, on the back of the packaging:
Thanks for all your hard work!
Brand Creative Studios, Corporate Communications, Corporate Shows, Design & Development, Digital Media, Engineering, Finance, Global Brand Marketing, Global Consumer Insights, Hasbro Far East, Integrated Marketing Services, Legal, Model Services, Operations, Quality Assurance, Sales & Marketing, Senior Management, Uproar!
If you want to own a rare piece of Transformers merchandise, the auction is still open until Friday, the 15th of June, at 6:45 PST, and it's going for the reasonable price of $53.71 USD.
What are your thoughts on the Deco? Do you like it more or less than the Hasbro Version? Did you place a bid? Did you end up winning the auction and purchasing it? Please let us know!
And, of course, keep your optics and audio sensors tuned to Seibertron.com for all the latest Transformers news.
We saw about the sixth wave of Transformers Tiny Titans back in March (right here), but we now know that they are indeed out in the wild hunting grounds for toys, as reported by fellow fan scottimus prime! The photo below comes from Holbrook New York Long Island, and its Toys'R'Us store.
Remember, if you come across new toys, make sure to flag them up in our ever-growing Sightings database and the boards too. Happy hunting!
Action Toys has updated their Facebook page with new images of the upcoming Unimetal Ultra Magnus. Ultra Magnus consists of a white inner robot who looks just like Optimus Prime (as is custom with Magnus) who can also open up and show off some robot skeleton, as well as the Magnus armor, which clips on over the white Prime. Check out the stock images below.
